Adventures in Analogue #05

After such an adventure, I finally received the scans of my film rolls from years of backlog due to the whole I'm-broke-I-don't-have-money-to-get-my-films-developed dilemma. Yes, I finally had the time and extra money to get some rolls developed! I had 5 rolls developed with love thanks to Sunny16 Lab. For this particular roll, I used a disposable camera, particularly the Fujifilm Simple Ace 400. I asked a friend to buy two disposable cameras for me when a friend of hers was in Japan and a friend gifted me another one when he went to Japan. Yes, Japan is the place to go to if you need disposable cameras since a lot of local online shops sell it for much higher.

Anyway, I'd like to share with you some photographs from my disposable camera!


A big folder of low quality film negative scans are resting in my hard drive and I decided to put them to good use. Instead of just leaving them as is, I used them to create art. Now this is something I thought of doing before but never had a proper concept. This set of artworks is called Mediums. Before I let you know what the whole concept is for this, take a quick scan of the artworks and try to guess.

2019 Planner

Despite being a Capricorn and having a Capricorn stellium, I still find myself failing at being punctual and accomplishing things according to plan. This is why I make sure I have a trusty planner with me. I've tried digital ones but they're not my cup of tea. For this year, I'm using a local brand instead of my usual Muji ones. I'd like to share with you more about this planner, how I intend to use it, and if it's worth its price.

BLACKPINK in Your Area Manila

Wow, where do I even start?

This whole love for BLACKPINK was so unexpected. It started with how my friends suggested I tried listening to their songs. I first listened to their song DDU-DU DDU-DU, which was part of their recent release, a mini album called Square Up, at that time. And let me tell you, it was definitely catchy. I caught myself listening to it a couple more times. But I developed a deeper connection with them when I started watching their series on YouTube channel called BLACKPINK House. It was their quirks and different personalities that made me fall in love with them as individuals and as a group.
