After a year and a half, I finally updated my blog layout. Ah, it looks so refreshing. I think that the new theme matches summer and the upcoming rainy days. I’d been considering to change it since last year, but it took me a lot of time to decide since I was contented with the old one. I was torn about keeping my page black, since it’s more like me. However, white emphasizes Loon’s artwork and it’s my favorite color as well (or tint, in technical terms). Well, I tried to keep them both and used black on the edges.
I actually updated it last month, since I was so excited to use this header illustration drawn by Loon. This artwork was supposed to be for my Facebook cover photo, but it turned out so nicely, it would’ve been such a waste if I didn’t feature it in my blog as well. (Note: Her usual clients pay her with $$$$. I paid my “commission” in the currency of… mangga’t bagoong… and love. It’s priceless! lol)
Speaking of this, here’s something we recently wore. When I think of summer, I think of white and blue, like the bright clouds and sky.
I also got myself some bluish flowers: hydrangea. Just like roses, I think that they suit me too. I fell in love with these flowers over a decade ago, ever since I first saw them in holic. However, I always hesitated to get one for myself since it’s so hard to take care of in this climate.
Cat Feature : JYAN
To be honest, I almost missed my May update because I’m so busy with a lot of other things. But I really wanted to post something this month for one of my cats, Jyan. He started to live with us around this time, last year.
My nephew and some neighbors’ kids, knowing that I love cats, brought him near my place back then. I was not happy with their behavior of passing responsibility to others without proper permission, so I was not planning to adopt him at first. I just left him some food and water when nobody else was looking.
Later on, the sky was getting darker and it seemed like it was going to rain. Of course, I couldn’t leave him outside like that. When evening came and everybody was asleep, I went out to take him to my place.
I found him there hopelessly hiding behind some plants. His eyes were closed and covered with discharge and it felt like he was just waiting for his death to come. This sight made me feel so sad. I tried calling him, and he answered with a faint meow. I covered him with a shirt to pick him up, just in case he behaves wildly like some other stray cats. But he was so tame and nice. He didn’t kick, bite, or scratch me. He just let me carry him all the way up my place. When we arrived, I offered him some food and he ate like there’s no tomorrow.
