2017 has been a blessed year for Amiciness. Forgive me for using “blessed” (my vocabulary is very limited HAHA) but yeah, many good things happened this year. Viewership is continually growing strong even in our Youtube account. Thanks to followers of our regular and new content. We are also proud to have won a number of contests that helped us make a small mark in the internet world.
Amiciness has been up for three years now and it’s what makes me sane amidst the ups and downs of my life. Ito na lang ang pinanghahawakan ko, guys! In this post, I’m recapping the highlights of our very colorful 2017. I thought I wouldn’t survive the year but I did. #grateful 🙌
Dear readers, this is Amiciness’ 2017 year in review…
I can’t help but be drawn to gumamela flowers, especially the rare colored ones like the one we have in our garden. Gumamela, or hibiscus, is common to every neighborhood in the country. It may also be extra popular because of science class. For me, it was during the third grade when our teacher asked us to bring a gumamela to school. It has all the parts of the flower: the male and female parts. It’s perfect for teaching kids about the birds and the bees without them really knowing.🌻
I waxed nostalgic a bit when I took these pictures. When I was younger, my siblings and I used to pound gumamelas and add the extract to water to make bubbles. *sighs* Fun and simple times. Back in the day, you have to create your toys to be entertained. Or prepare to spend a long, lazy afternoon watching noontime Mexican telenovelas and Pira-pirasong Pangarap with your grandmother. You got me. I like the latter too.
Anyway, here’s my very first photo set using my new Fujifilm X-T20 16-50mm Kit. I hope you’ll be able to feel the story and the emotions I wanted to convey. 📸
