Marian and I were officemates in my (two) previous jobs. It was only in the second one that we became friends since we were teammates for one client. Right from the start, I already knew that she’s got an eye for beauty (*winks*). Not to mention her talent to scout for beautiful bags and shoes. But what I remember more about her are (a) the genuine and contagious laughter that we shared (b) our palabok-chat moments in Chubster Corner (c) the day she ‘escaped’ from work to buy four books comprising the Twilight saga.
When I was vacationing in the Philippines last December, I chanced to drop by in my previous office and met up with her and a number of friends. That time she showed me the DSLR that was newly gifted to her. She took several funny group photos of us, that day it was evident that she was a newbie. Until I noticed how her photos grow by following her photo blog. It’s like seeing a child unleashing her natural talent. Until it became evident that she has an eye for interesting subjects (including me, hahaha).
I just knew this one’s bound to happen:
Her photos were featured in May 5, 2009 issue of Manila Bulletin. Read her own account here.
