Descendants of the sun DIY

Hello Captain! Hello Dr. Kang! :)


I guess, I am bit late for this DOTS fever, I just found out about this from my best friend who decided to call me in the middle of the night just to tell me watch DOTS!! I think I need some Korean Channel. Anyways, forward to this very moment and since I am few hours away, well more episodes from the ending, I would love to share to you my own replica of DOTS doll!

I hope Captain Approves!




Once you have cut your stencils, trace it on your felt cloth just like in picture #2. 

Sewing might take you a lot of hours depending on the size that you wanted to make. For me, since I am doing a cell phone charm, it took me more than 3 hours to finish it :D 

So my dear sewing buddies, FIGHTING!!!!! 
(Forgetful me, I was so happy sewing my very own charm I have forgotten to take pictures of it!) 






I also did a mini replica of Dr. Kang and Captain! :) 
For detailed DIY's don't hesitate to comment :D

Cherry Bougainvillea :)

If Japan has Cherry Blossoms, we have our own Cherries to bloom too! Presenting the pretty flower Bougainvillea :)


I have been on the hype of jealousy just by looking at my friends celebrating the beauty of Cherry Blossoms in Japan and being all cheesy under the beautiful pink flowers in Korea. Anything connected with Cherry make me feel jelly! Oh how I wish I could teleport myself there and experience it!

Look at this pretty photo! Isn’t it Dreeeeamy!

But it seems like the simplicity in life, doesn’t really come in sizes or shapes. As I was walking with all the feels of a romantic Korean drama or a cheesy Japan tour, I have come across with this tree that blooms so beautifully that I never noticed it was there!

hihih my baby Chloe enjoying the view :)

So instead of being trap in the fantasy of Cherry blossoms, I had my own way of enjoying it here in my lupang sinilangan the Philippines.

Look at this Bougainvillea tree!
How I wish that there is just one place here in the Philippines where we can enjoy it’s beauty J

FORT SANTIAGO



Fuerte de Santiago means Fort Santiago in Spanish is one of the most historical sites in Manila. Our National Hero Dr. Jose Rizal was imprisoned here before his execution in 1896 and during the Spanish Colonial era and World War 2 many lives were losts in it's prisons. 




Fort Santiago is located in Intramuros, Manila, few meters away from Manila Cathedral. 

The Rizal Shrine
Located inside the Fort Santiago where you can see Rizal's memorabilia's, know more about his life, and how he was during his imprisonment. The museum also show's the replica of his ancestral house in Laguna. 

(The Last Steps of Rizal before Execution) 




In my point of view, creeps were all over the place. I was terrified and scared, seeing everything face to face. Define goosebumps.I was literally feeling the moment. 


the many faces of our National Hero




El Filibusterimo 


Before leaving the Rizal Shrine, my brothers and I did a cute Photo Op with our National Heroes. :) 

Around the Fort Santiago, you'll be seeing the dungeons where our fellow Filipino's was held during the Spanish Era and the World War. 

there were also sites where you can see statues inside the dungeon and see what is it like to be held captive in here. It's heart aching to see that our countrymen is suffering in his own mother land. 

The Arabic Version of Mi Ultimo Adios 
(took a photo of it because it made my heart happy to see Arabic letters once again) 

A statue of Rizal during his final walk.

The Rajah Sulayman Theater 
(It was named Rajah Sulayman in honor of the Mohammedan Malays who first inhibited the area) 
It's also a place for contemporary theaters in round production of PETA (Philippine Educational Theatre Association. 

my brothers and I did some comical photo's at the theater :D






A MUST VISITED HISTORICAL PLACE IN THE PHILIPPINES. In this place, you're going to see and understand the histories we only see and studied in books. The reason's we have the freedom we have today because of our heroes. I really wished I have visited this place when I was still and grade school, maybe, if I have seen this place before I am currently living a life as a historian :D
