I think I mentioned this before, but I took A TON of photos in June. Which came as a surprise, really, because all I can remember from the past month is me studying non-stop (and going out a handful of times in between). But somehow I ended up taking more than 50-something photos during this time, heh. It took me some time to put everything together, and it might take a while to load, so please bear with me. Enjoy the photos 🌿

June 2nd, Sunday. I accompanied Aian to a meeting with a potential client. I say 'accompanied', but honestly I just tagged along because they were meeting at Rockwell and I wanted to eat at CocoIchi, haha! Before meeting up with the client, we met up with Allysa. We then headed to the meeting place, UCC Terrace Cafe. While waiting for Aian to finish, Allysa and I got desserts to eat as we were chatting. I got their banana almond brick toast. Can you believe this was my first time trying brick toast?? It was SO GOOD! I just wished the sides were just a liiiiittle more toasted, for extra texture. I still liked it a lot though, being a bread person 👌

After Aian's meeting, we all walked around Rockwell before getting dinner. Spotted while we were roaming: a cute pupper + this painting done by our friend Iso on one of the walls in Power Plant.

Dinner at CocoIchi, finally! CocoIchi, CocoIchi, CocoIchi, yes! (You get brownie points from me if you sang this~)

So good~ I missed CocoIchi so much. I don't even remember when was the last time we ate at CocoIchi before this. I wish they'd open a branch near Las Piñas in the future. I'm still super bitter that Robinsons Manila has one; if they'd opened one while I was still in uni, I probably would've eaten there all the time.

June 3rd, Monday. The sky was a pretty pastel color when the sun set, so I tried my best to take a nice photo!

Right after I took that shot, someone from LBC came and delivered a package for me. Turns out it was my HEART*IZ album! I was so excited to take a photo that I used Jake as part of my ~flatlay~ lol.

June 4th, Tuesday. We went out to buy groceries and to get one of my shoes fixed. Also, random: a couple of days before this I made made a mistake in cutting my fringe, so I tried to fix it before we went out. That's why it's shorter than usual. The length and thickness made it look like 90's shoujo manga hair, so it wasn't too bad.

Stray kitty friends ♥ We can't adopt any more cats (since we already have 8) and we can't foster (since we live in a studio-type apartment), so the most we can do is feed the strays that come by our doorstep. We have a little plastic container for them to drink out of too, which we refill with water regularly.

June 9th, Sunday. Aian and I went to SM MoA for ACX 2019. It had been a while since I last did my makeup nicely, and I really liked how my makeup turned out, so I took a ton of selfies on the way there.

As for the reason why I went to the event, of course it's because Seishun Kakumei was performing ♥

After watching SK's performance, Aian and I went to a nearby cafe to get coffee. We got waffles, too. After that we went back to the event hall so I could congratulate SK on their contest win ♥ When the event ended, Aian, Allysa, and I went to get dinner at Uma Uma at S Maison.

When we got home, Aian unboxed and took photos of his newly acquired figure of his waifu 😏😏😏😏

June 15th, Saturday. Our maternal grandfather turned 82 on the 12th, so that side of the family celebrated his birthday at Cafe Ilang-Ilang at the Manila Hotel. It's been a while since I went to anywhere this fancy, so I made sure to dress for the occasion! Took a ton of photos since it's been a while since I was out with family.

All the sweets!! I only took photos of the desserts, haha. One Piece's Whole Cake Island Arc was still fresh in my memory during this time, so I went a little overboard with the desserts on my plate;;;;

One last photo of my outfit before we left. This is currently one of my favorite dresses, by the way! Sometimes I wear it like this, other times I wear it as a wrap top. I should buy more dresses like this in the future~

June 18th, Thursday. Aian and I went to the post office to pick up a package that was almost overdue. (I was just too lazy to pick it up sooner, because it was always so hot.) Suffered the whole time during the commute because the heat index was at 42°C (!!!!) that day. I wore a hat for the first time in ages, just for extra sun protection.

Once I got my package, we went to ATC to buy some stuff Aian needed. We picked up a bag of coffee beans as well. After that we had lunch at Peri-Peri Charcoal Chicken. By the time we were done with everything we needed to do, it was still super bright outside. Days are so long in June...

June 19th, Friday. There's actually nothing special about this day, but this happened. Aian took this photo while I was taking a nap. This is why I always complain about body pain in the mornings 🙃

June 2019 | chainyan.co
This was my mood throughout June. I wanted to study but also wanted to just sleep the whole month _(:3 」∠)_

June 21, Friday. Gave the kids Churu after a long time! I used to give them Churu every Friday/Saturday/Sunday/Monday (the day keeps changing LOL), but since I was hyperfocused on studying for the JLPT, I only got to give them Churu once that whole month. Sorry, babies ;;;;

June 22nd, Saturday. By this point, I only had two weeks left to cram for the JLPT, but I was getting super burnt out that my brain couldn't absorb anything I was reading anymore. I wanted to give myself a break, so I asked Aian if we could run over to Kat's Cafe for a bit to get cake, and we did. It was already pretty late when we went, since it rained in the afternoon, but luckily Kat's is open until 10:30PM hehe. Cake craving satisfied~

June 23rd, Sunday. Went to my paternal grandmother's house to visit my dad. My cousins were also there, so I got to spend some time with them. I had my JLPT workbook with me that day, so I was able to get a bit of studying done as well. I got distracted when Monster's Inc. came on the TV though. (I am a child.) I got to see and spend some time with my baby half-brother that day too, which was nice.

June 26, Wednesday. Felt bitter about missing two of MNL48's handshake events that month, so I had my own handshake event with Mori. Nyandshake event hehe.

June 27, Thursday. The final stretch before the JLPT. Figured I should reward myself for doing a good job of studying almost non-stop for the whole month, so I got myself milk tea from Macao Imperial ♥ That same day, I also "re-pierced" my old auricle piercing. I say "re-pierced", but the truth is I just pushed the piercing back in. I found out that the hole itself hadn't completely closed, and that there was just a layer of skin covering the hole on one side. So it was technically just half-closed, I guess. I pushed the piercing back in slowly, and after a grueling few minutes, my auricle piercing was back. Thinking back on it now, I probably should have just left it to the experts, but I'm not exactly the best at making good decisions. Thankfully, it didn't get infected or anything, and the most I had to put up with was mild swelling, but please don't be an idiot like me.

June 29, Monday. I published this post, just before Pride Month came to an end 💖💜💙

June 30, Tuesday. Discovered the new cat filters on the Snow app. That's right, they made filters specifically for cats. You can imagine how much fun I had while taking these, haha!

June 2019 | chainyan.co
From here on I'll be sharing cute photos of the kids I took that month. This was when Nora and Mori decided they wanted to sleep on Aian's lap at the same time u w u

A derpy Chochig. At this point I don't even call her Sosig anymore, since "Chochig" sounds 10x cuter lol.

More ANGERY!!! cat photos taken with Snow. Can you tell this is my favorite cat filter? 😹😹😹

That's all for June! I'm still surprised I had more than 50 photos for this month alone. (It was at around 70 at first, but I tried my best to pare it down.) Hopefully I can continue to remember to take photos in the future, as well.

A question: what's everybody been up to these days? Since I'm taking a break from studying 日本語 this month, I'm trying to get back into journaling (I didn't touch my journal at all in June) but I can't seem to find the motivation to do that just yet. I've been planning new blogposts in the meantime, but that's it. I'm curious about what everyone else has been doing. Let me know what you've been up to, internet friends!
