Q: Hi! I know you love to draw/sketch. :) Can you make a list of the materials you have used? Or at least the ones you recommend :D (watercolors, pencils, sketchpad, markers and the like) Thanks!

To be honest, I’m not particular with the brands. But here are the list of materials I’m using right now:

  • Paintbrush: Daley-Rowney
  • Gouche (introduction set): Daley-Rowney
  • Sketching Pencils: Royal & Langnickle (sometimes, I just use a magic pencil)
  • Colored Pencils: Faber Castell (Watercolor)
  • Watercolor: Prang
  • Colored Pens: Staedtler and ProMarker
  • Pens (for Outlines): Artliner’s Calligraphy Pen and Createcolor Studioline
  • Acrylic: Not sure. I think I left mine in Manila. 

For pen and pencil sketches, I just use my Moleskine sketchbook. I use Daler-Rowney’s watercolor sketchpad when I want to paint.

Q: Since when did you construct yer theme? :3

When? Hm… Well, I got my theme when I was visiting Manila, so that’s somewhere between August 4-8. :) 

Q: Would you trade your 55-200mm for a 50mm?

What’s the aperture of the 50mm? If it’s 1.4, then yes! The lower the aperture is, the better! Another thing to consider should also consider if the field that you like to shoot. 

Q: Ate Kisty, is Katy Perry an illuminati? Kasi dun sa MV niya ng Wide Awake parang naging illuminati siya.

Hahaha. I don’t know. 

Q: You have a subtle resemblance to Kim Hyuna. She’s a korean super star, look her up if you have time. :)

Thank you. Hahaha. :3

The Style Mermaid | Kisty Mea • Katy Perry: Part of Me Movie
When it comes to admiration and idolization, I tend to have very high standards (I know right? I’m plain weird). I don’t just adore someone because they’re gorgeous or they’re talented, but because even if they have all that God-given blessings, they remain down-to-earth and kind. And Katy Perry just added herself to my not-so very long list of people I admire. 
Before watching this movie, I was certain of one thing: I love Katy Perry. After watching this, I just love her even more. Through this movie, you’ll witness that Katy Perry is very much just like us: a normal human being with emotions and dreams. We all have this notion that these celebrities are like gods and goddesses but this movie is telling you otherwise; that her success did not happen overnight and that she had her own ups and downs before she became this famous and while she still is. Personally, I think this movie is very inspiring (especially for girls) and yeah, I recommend it. 
Random Fact: There were only two people in the movie house. Me and a guy. Haha.

The Style Mermaid | Kisty Mea • Metropolitan Enhancement Academy
The Metropolitan Enhancement Academy is a culinary school located along Aurora Blvd. in Quezon City, Philippines. They offer an eight-month and six-month course for those who wants to pursue a career in the culinary field and a one-month* short course for those who simply wants to learn or improve their cooking and/or baking skills. [[MORE]]
There are tons of culinary schools in the Philippines but what sets the Metropolitan Enhancement Academy apart is that they offer students individual materials throughout the course. Other schools often do their work in groups and this prevents the student to fully acquire all necessary skills to become a great chef. Not to mention, the tuition fee is relatively low compared to other schools and it even includes books and uniforms that they’ll be using in the laboratory.  
Facilities of the School

The Reception + Coffee Lounge

Lecture Classroom

The Kitchen Laboratory
More importantly, the school is TESDA-accredited and the instructors are world-renowned chefs (if I’m not mistaken, one of them was a contender for Top Chef). So if you’re interested, I suggest giving them a call at (+632) 998-0314 or (+632) 966-3284.
