it all started with these:
and just when it all seemed to be just a dream, i found this in osaka in july (and at Y105, how can you say no?). despite what everyone else was saying, i got 16 of these, bought a new luggage to put them all in and flew them all the way back to manila. now to find the birds.
so i started to dream about these:
2 months later and my search for the perfect birds was still not yielding results i am happy with. and then there was jatujak. at the precipice of a storm and amidst a sea of eager shoppers, i found them. wading through ankle-deep water and maneuvering around potential electrocution, i had to make a second trip for this. i got around a hundred of these, in different sizes and colors:
it's all coming together. and i couldn't be happier. the dream is coming true. i really wish i could share the fulfilment of that dream here but it has to be on our wedding day. yay! i really am so happy.
