LomoPeople: Zoe

2

Her mom, my best friend Ela, rightly named her Zoe Ysabelle. One of a kind. Hints on fun and wonder. Like a character in a fairy tale book. Just like her.

Credits: grazie

I met her for the first time last year during my vacation in the Philippines. They flew from Singapore, where they live, to spend time with me in Manila, Dumaguete and then in Siquijor Island.

We warmed up to each other right away. She called me Tita and told me stories of all sorts. Some stories about her friend Alonzo in Singapore. Some stories about the books and movies she love. She loved the girly girl stuff too like frilly pink clothes, make up, nail polish, ribbons, Disney princesses……

While in Siquijor she danced at the beach, observed the tiny crabs that came out from the sand, searched for starfish and sang. She made our Siquijor trip more worthwhile and I grew so fond of her that I miss her all the time.

There was a swing in front of our cottage which she loved. We would swing together while staring at the beauty of the beach and I hummed along while she sang songs from her kindergarten class. I was lucky to have been able to take a photo of her while on the swing. Oh cute Zoe!

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 1

    Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!

    Object of My Affection: Subbuteo

    In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.

    The World, According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
