Wanna know what I’ve been up to lately? Well, I am now a certified first aider. I just finished my training two days ago. It was hella fun, I’m telling ya. So yes, I learned about doing CPR, rescue breathing, bandages and some other basic stuff. Totally amazing! Hahaha. One of my friends told me ‘kung ano ano nalang’ meaning like you’re so random—that’s the closest I could think of a translation lol sorry if it didn’t do any justice. And yes, I was pretty much so bored I thought why not sign up for a first aid class.
Fast forward to now, I’m currently on the road of editing another video. Finally, right? Another inspiration has landed on me and I am not letting it go. That’s according to Big Magic, my new favorite self-guided book. It says that once the inspiration shows up, use it until it leaves you because it’s not going to be with you all the time, which is basically true to me. I don’t always feel the urge to do things just sometimes maybe when I’m being visited by the god of inspiration.
But here’s a hiccup to that, I can’t stop watching vlogs. HAHA. I have this new favorite Japanese vlogger. His YouTube channel name is FumiShun BASE. In such a short span of time, I think I may have already watched almost all of his video. I find him so funny and interesting. Not just that, but I have a crush on Yuyu—not sure if I remember his name correctly—because he kinda reminds me of Oguri Shun, which is another one of my fave Japanese actors. Uggh, Japan. Take me there!!!!
Anyway, I need to work…
I get questions on how I edit my pictures. I used to edit using VSCO but sometimes, it’s not just enough. So I switched to using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic. LR Presets are installable photo effects or filters that can quickly improve mood and color of a photo with just a click. You need to have the desktop version for it to use or you can get it here.
Since you know how much I love, love you guys, I decided to share some Lightroom Presets that I’ve made. I hope you like them and tell me what you think about it. If you like some more, I could make a bundle pack. And I’ll let you guys know.
I’ll try to add a few more presets now and then, so try to check from time to time. And you should be set by following this instructions on importing and using the presets!
Urban Japan Preset
two (2) presets available: Day Version and Night Version
Japan Presets, these two presets gives a traditional look for your every outtakes. The UJ day preset gives your picture a green hue which complements the green surroundings of the country or any Southeast Asian countries. On the other hand, the UJ night preset gives that comic vibe reflecting on colorful street signage. I made two versions just because the settings are different depending on the time of the day. Although, inspired by Japan, this can be widely used in any other photos from around the world!

I accidentally just listened to a super sad song on my phone and got really sad. And now I can’t stop listening to it, it’s on repeat mode!
It’s a Japanese song performed by Ai Otsuka (my favorite of all time ^^) titled ‘Renai Shashin’. It was used on the movie ‘Tada Kimi Wo Aishiteru’. Mind you, the movie was sooo good and sad. Again one of my all time favorites.
Thus, fangirling mode activated.
I’m forever in love with anything about Japan. 😀
Toma Ikuta ❤ ❤ ❤
Oguri Shun ❤ ❤ ❤
I even studied Japanese language for like 2 years or less. I got to try wearing Kimono on our graduation and goodness I looked hideous. Meh. I miss my cute innocent sensei tho. *Sigh* I'm that in love with their everything. 🙂 I suddenly miss my friends there 😦
I wanna go to Japan BADLY and I'd like to go there alone. Hihi. Oh my. Just thinking about it… XD
