The Weekend Currently – Sunday

The Weekend
Hello everyone! It’s been a while! Shoot me for being so lazy to write about almost everything lately. I have tons of stuff to write but I just couldn’t get that writing vibe :(. Well it’s the weekend and I hope you guys are having a grand time!

Random things, Philippines’ politics, blogs, stuff from my facebook news feed (surprisingly I find the usual annoying posts interesting!)

The Weekend Currently entry.

To Angeline Quinto’s “Gusto Kita”, currently a favorite. Been playing this song since yesterday that I can hear it even in my sleep! lol! Why do I love the song? heck I don’t know!

of my friends who are supposed to here already with me but for some reason are LATE! I seriously hate to wait! Thank God for Internet cafes, it extends my patience.

coffee! I am sleeeeepppy! So tempted to get out of this place for my coffee fix.

That life is less complicated — still. That my happiness would not mean the pain for someone else. If only I could care less of what others will think, I’d probably jump into it, but no, I am not that person.— STILL wishing.

To get through the coming days with a joyful heart despite the bumps along the way, the “unwanted” thoughts, unnecessary emotions, and some could’ve, would’ve, should’ve(s).

My sexayyy mint green mini dress, ready for my afternoon splash!

The weather. It’s past 3PM and the weather is neither hot nor cold. Perfect for my mood (not in my best mood actually).

To be in a peaceful and quite place where I can just relax, away from everyone.

Contented and happy. Things are not perfect but I have learned to appreciate every little thing so I guess the happiness comes from there.

I hope you guys are having an amazing weekend. It’s Sunday already, you still have the entire afternoon and night to enjoy! Choose happiness always!

How to Edit Photos and Clear Unwanted Objects and Items with Movavi Photo Editor

A big part of the reason why studio photography is very different is due to the fact that in the studio the photographer is able to fully control all the objects and elements in the shot as well as the lighting, shadows, and so on. It goes without saying that with other types of photography this sort of control is impossible, and inevitably an otherwise-perfect photo may be marred because of a single unwanted object, shadow, or some other element.


Rather than simply accepting this as something that happens from time to time, it is possible to clear any unwanted objects and items from your photo with Movavi Photo Editor. Although it may sound complicated, the software will actually make the process completely painless and you can remove shadow from photo or any element that you don’t want in your shot with a few simple steps:

  1.  Click the ‘Browse for Images’ button and select the photo that you want to edit.
  2. Open the ‘Object Removal’ menu and select the ‘Brush’ tool.
  3. Use the ‘Brush’ to paint over the object that you want to remove in order to highlight it (if you have trouble selecting the object you can try the ‘Magic Wand’ or ‘Lasso’ tools).
  4. Click ‘Start Erasing’ to remove the object.
  5. If any imperfections remain, use the ‘Stamp’ tool to correct them.
  6. When you’re satisfied, save the photo by clicking ‘Export’.

The same process can be used to remove any sort of unwanted elements – including objects, people, shadows, date stamps, and much more. Essentially you will be able to ensure that only elements that you want remain within the frame of your photo, and can exert full control over its composition by doing so.

Before you save the final version of your photo, you should also consider using the other features in Movavi Photo Editor to enhance its quality, apply stylish filters, transform the frame and orientation, insert customizable text, and even replace the entire background. In some cases you may find that all it takes is a single edit to improve your photo dramatically, whereas in others it may take several different types of edits to achieve the final result that you desire. Be sure to experiment and get creative, because that’s really the key to editing photos successfully.

Davao Celebrates Financial Freedom

As a fitting start to the new year, the “#LiveFreePH Freedom Tour” made a stop in Davao City to continue its financial freedom rally. From January 24 to 30, Davaoenos were treated to educational booths, exciting promos, and a free concert featuring Sun Life father-son ambassadors Piolo and Inigo Pascual.

Beginning the journey

A string of activities guided participants to begin their own #LiveFreePH journey. In a bold move, they declared their vision of financial freedom with the “Live Free Freedom Wall.” Then they looked at their current situation, shared their outlook about the future, and pledged support to a community in need through BLISS or “Brighter Life Index: Social Sentiment.” And by joining the “Sun CeleBright” promo, they won free trips to their chosen destinations!

But what made the #LiveFreePH Tour brighter were the Sun Life advisors ready to help those who want to jumpstart their financial freedom journey. Some were so inspired that they chose to become financial
advisors themselves.

Pursuing the mission

In front of a jubilant and captivated crowd, the “Freedom Celebration” concert headlined by Piolo and Inigo amplified the mission of financial independence for everyone. Aside from belting his signature hits,Piolo serenaded the winners of the hugely popular “Selfie with Papa P” – where longtime fans get to meet their idol and take home a photo souvenir. Inigo also showed off his dance moves and energized the night with today’s popular hits.

“We want Filipinos to believe that a brighter future is possible. We want them to be inspired to take on their own path towards financial freedom. And that they can start this meaningful journey with the help of our financial advisors,” said Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa. The #LiveFreePH Freedom Tour kicked off last year with stops in Pampanga and Iloilo.
