3 of #100HappyDays
Starting a project with an amazing friend and loving it! <3
I'm Desiree Ann, born in Visayas, raised in Mindanao, studied in Luzon, Philippines.
I love traveling and I like to store pretty little things and experiences in pictures and words. The world is full of overwhelming beauty but some are not here to stay. My memory needs help in keeping all of them in, hence, this blog. :)
I'm not a photographer but I'm hoping that I could share the interesting specks I see in this world and do it well.

Rereading Tuesdays With Morrie
"There are some mornings when I cry and cry and mourn for myself. Some mornings, I’m so angry and bitter. But it doesn’t last too long. Then I get up and say, I want to live…"
Reminder to self:
Everything has its season—to blossom, to wither, and to fall… Enjoy the process and keep the faith. <3
I missed this… I missed photography… I realized I missed sharing my thoughts. Yes, you’ll hear more from me, Tumblr! I missed you…
Bringing back hope, joy, and faith…because Typhoon Haiyan did not just damage the physical.
I salute the Leyteño’s strength of spirit. God bless you!

“You are a waking dream. You’re like sunshine on sunflowers. Raindrops on grass. I wish I knew how to wake up. For no matter how beautiful the stars may seem, they will always be out of reach. But it’s still nice to stargaze. I’m thankful I can still dream.” -Mitch Seña
My recent birthday was celebrated along with Prince Siddhartha Gautama’s, the Buddha. I felt very lucky to have witnessed the celebration, luckier that on that same day, I was reminded of the generosity of people.
I had the farmers observe the Day of Compassion where they have to act compassionately in any way and form for one whole day. It’s their choice whether to actually do it or not. After three weeks (today), one farmer approaches me and says, “I’ll write about my Day of Compassion. I loved that day. It made me very happy!”
Talk about getting motivated. =) Who cares about back pains, sunburns, and headaches? Well, I do, to be honest, but that’s nothing compared to the inspiration the people I work with and/for give me. :)

I travel because I in each place first visited,in each new person met, in each experience, I discover bits of me and know myself better.
