She found it in the city, but the city doesn’t talk.

A spark of creativity just hit me when I saw this lovely thing at Candy Mag’s website a few days ago. So I decided to make my own, and give it to my Mom as a Mother’s Day gift!

Want to know how to make your own glittery plumes? Here’s how:

For this project, you’ll need: 

Feather earrings
Glue
Glitters (though you have to ask the Cullens really nicely.. lol)
Clear nail polish (not included in photo)

Spread the glue about halfway down the earrings. Any glue would do, but I suggest you use Glue Gel because it’s the most cooperative and spreads easily and smoothly.

Sprinkle with glitter immediately, before it dries. Now, the amazing thing here is that you can pick whatever color glitter you would use on your earrings, instead of buying those expensive ones at malls. Cheap feather earrings can rage from 50 – 100 php! Truly a bargain.

After letting the glue dry completely, shake off the excess glitter.  Reapply glue and glitter, if needed. I suggest you do it over a piece of old newspaper so the glitter wouldn’t fly all over your room.

Apply a coat (or two) of clear nail polish (I used gold glitter polish, since I used gold glitters. It also helps cover some holes) so the glitters won’t rub off your hand whenever you touch it.

Voila! Wrapped, and ready for delivery! You can actually buy loads of earrings for cheap prices at bazaars or stalls, coat them with glitter, and give them to your friends! It’s perfect for gifts if you’re on a tight budget, or for yourself, for an instant revamp in your wardrobe! 😉

Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.

Some random shots that I thought you’d like to see! 🙂

I have gorgeous friends. ❤ First time posting beach photos, so have fun browsing!

Where did I get my genes from? Gorgeous parents! ❤

Me and Cito being romantic at the beach. It’s like a scene in the movies! Ha ha ha. ❤

 Hey, uh, God? You forget to make them my sisters. 🙂 Sisters for life!!!

You can almost see my Deathly Hallows tattoo here. 🙂

Crabs by the shore!

Saw a monkey by the Underground River forest! I swear, Cito spazzed out. He just kept staring at his long-lost “brother” with his mouth open. 😀

Yes, he is, indeed, a monkey. I love you!

Me eating Korean Spicy Ramen at the airport.

Bags ang bags and bags and bags of dried fish! Tuyo, danggit, and dried pusit! I swear, Palawan has the best dried fish ever!

We saw a rainbow! Because the beach was a huge disappointment, it was God’s way of saying that things will get better. 🙂

Gorgeous, gorgeous sunset! Beats Manila Bay any damn time! Thank You Lord, for everything! For life, for the animals, for the wonderful creations You brought upon us that has never been touched by man. You’re the only Creator that deserves that title. Thank you for Your glory!

Outfit post soon!

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.

One of the highlights of our trip! Introducing one of the new Seven Wonders of the World: Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park!

To get there, we had to travel by land for about 2 hours. It was a rough ride! Some parts of the road was bumpy and full of zigzags which makes it tough for people who easily gets dizzy. A random fact about Puerto Princesa: It’s the consistent winner of the ‘Greenest and Cleanest City’ according to Wikipedia (which is not a very reliable source, I know, but still)! 🙂

Ironic picture! We live in San Pedro, Laguna.. only to find it in Palawan too! 😀

Amaaaazing view! Which made our road trip not-so-boring and nakakabagot! Just look at that fog!!! Actually, Manila has the same kind. Only it’s called POLLUTION. Lol. I hate Manila. You could die young there. 😐 I live for fresh air in provinces! 

After arriving at the harbor, we waited for a few minutes for our boat that would take us to the Underground River. We look so happy! 😀

My friends and I, with our tour guide Ate Princess,  have a separate boat because one boat holds 8 people! The boat ride takes about 20-25 minutes, but the relaxing waves and breathtaking view makes it seem like 10!

Clear blue waters!!! There’s a little beach over there, and it was so isolated, we were speechless with shock as we stared at it! “I wanna live there.” – Cito

Alas, we have arrived! The Underground River was declared as a natural world heritage site by UNESCO in 1999. 🙂

Soooooo proud of my country!!! Kudos to all who voted! The Philippines are receiving a lot of negative vibes lately and it needs the right motivation for people to get off their asses and start doing their part in making our country a better place. We need inspiration!! Let’s do the beauty of our country justice!

Registration! Ha ha ha. Cito has the worst handwriting I have ever seen!

We’re now ready for our awesome adventure!!

They got separated because the boat can only hold 8-10 people. Boooo! 😦

Our tour guide (Kuya Ading) was funny as hell! I wouldn’t post his jokes here, as they wouldn’t make sense, thus won’t do them justice. Hey, did you know that a rock formation grows 1-3 mm a year? Yes, the rock formations inside are about 25 million years old!!! Here are some awesome rock formations inside the cave:

A t-rex head, and a crocodile head (at the back).

Two people hanging upside-down. 😦

Snoopy!!!! 

The “Sexy Lady” Lol 🙂

There are different “rooms” inside the cave. They were called “Fruits and Vegetables” and “Meat” rooms. The reason behind the names were because the rock formations found along that part of the cave were, yes, fruits, vegetables and meat! 😀 My favorite room was the “Cathedral”. We all had goosebumps because the rock formations were so detailed and vivid, you would’ve thought they were carved!

This is called the “Pegasus”, or the winged horse from Greek mythology.

“The Last Supper” on top of a giant “Melting Candle”!

“The Three Kings”

Other rock formations found there are The Blessed Mary, half of Jesus’ face which his nose appears to be bleeding, and an Angel. Nature and God truly is awesome!!

My seatmate throughout the ride!

Feeling fulfilled after the ride! Kudos to Kuya Ading for being a hilarious tour guide!

Happy and proud faces! Eco-tourism beats popular tourism in my book! This is what I was telling you in the past posts. I would rather experience something new and adventurous than lay in the sand doing nothing. Beaches are boring, and wouldn’t give you any sense of satisfaction and is only meant for relaxation. I want to spend my summer by being productive and fulfilled! I always get tears in my eyes whenever I see the beauty of my country. I want to become President so I can fix everything!!! 😦

Yes, it truly is more fun in the Philippines!!! ❤
