My first post is totally unrelated to fashion, but I know social responsibility never gets out of style.
Here I go!
Last 2009, when the typhoon “Ondoy” hit the Philippines, several places were greatly hit and a lot of people lost their homes and, even, their loved ones; so, for people who weren’t affected by the typhoon, the least we could do was help them out and share the things we have.
And so, the Soup Kitchen Project was born!
“Soup Kitchen Project
a project wherein we distribute soup to evacuees/victims living in evacuation centers or in areas greatly affected by the calamity.”
Although that experience was very fulfilling, I hoped that we would never have to do it again. I hoped that there won’t be another natural calamity as great as Ondoy.
Unfortunately, 3 years later, another tragedy happened. It actually affected more areas and more people, this time. But we still tried to help, as much as we can, through reviving the…
Soup Kitchen Project! (thus, the title.)
Here’s a few pictures my sisters took during our Soup Kitchen Project a while ago!

First stop: Nangka Elementary School!
May I just say…I was very touched with the first cup I gave out. I gave it to this little boy with Down Syndrome — I have my reasons.

Second stop: Malanday, Marikina!
Once again, the Soup Kitchen Project did not fail, I really felt happy and fulfilled. It was still heartbreaking to see their situation, though. Oh well. At least, we were able to help in our own little way!
To end this LONG POST, let me suggest something…
It is never too late to help, so bring relief goods to those organizations planning or having relief operations! Or, if you’re not in the Philippines and you don’t have anything to give or you can’t have a “Soup Kitchen Project”…the best, most powerful, and most helpful thing you can do is to PRAY.
Thank you! :)
That’s all for tonight!
Okay. Here’s the deal…
I’m getting really bored with the contents of my dashboard—emo quotations, gifs, etc. So, I decided to challenge myself to make it more interesting!
I’m going to make my
blog into a fashion blog!
One thing I love and fear, at the same time, is fashion…I don’t really have the typical “Tumblr-fashion-body” but I love to dress up nicely (or at least I try).
However, the twist is…
I neither have a camera nor a quality cellphone camera to use for this so-called “fashion blog”…
So I wish myself luck!
And I hope you, somehow, enjoy my blog makeover!
