Blast from the past 1

Got this idea from Reggie Girl of Midlife, menopause, mistakes and random stuff.. when she posted her blast from the past photos. I have a lot of old photos mostly from my childhood and recently I did a little search for these gems! Here are some I found on my first search, I'm sure I can still dig out a lot of photos from the past LOL.

Haha this is my first birthday with a dumb smile on my face LOL. That's my Mom in a red duster and my cousin on the right side, probably the one more excited to open my gifts!

Still my first birthday. I shudder looking at this! Everything is so girly! Pink gift wrappers, Disneyland and little balloons!

I'm the one in the red shirt; the three kids around me are siblings. This was also my birthday, look at Snow White and the Seven Dwarves on the cake LOL.

This was taken in Loyola Memorial Park; we were just visiting my grandparents. And yes, it was a really hot day LOL. That's me with my little brother, he was so cute! Now he is so skinny! Haven't visited this cemetery for months! Have to pay visit to my Grandparents, wouldn't want them rolling in their coffins missing us! LOL

Yes folks, that is a sea of pretty flowers and maybe a Crusaders boat? LOL. I have no idea why the boat in the background and if there was a history regarding it written somewhere, I probably didn't read it during that time. I was a kid! If only I could go back, I'll supply you guys more pictures! This is a place somewhere in Clark, Pampanga, just minutes or an hour away from Manila. I don't know if the place still looks like that.

I look fugly here, hahaha! Looks like I just woke up and was served with.. Cereal. My Mom said it was a free breakfast from the hotel we were staying in that time! Who would want a free cereal for Breakfast? Cheap Hotel!

I just had to post this because my Mom looks like a hippie hahaha! If you click on the photo, you'll see an enlarged version obviously and my silly face!

My laziness is already evident when I was just a kid. I'm the one in the yellow shirt and lounging lazily on the left side of the couch while my three cousins and a friend are pretty.. happy.

This was taken on the old Greenbelt Park in Makati, Philippines. It's gone now. Oh by the way, look at what I was so wearing - so dope! I was a bit of a tomboy back then so forgive that horrendous outfit. OMG, what was wrong with me during that time LOL.

I can say I was pretty spoiled, judging from all my birthdays, that's probably the reason why I get everything I want! When I was born, everything was so possible but ever since my little brother was born, he didn't get to enjoy all those things I get to enjoy - the trips out of the city, Hotel-hopping, marvelous birthdays and other things. He did get to enjoy other things especially technological stuff but times have changed due to financial problems and other circumstances. If only I get to replay things, I probably wouldn't change anything except reliving those days with my now deceased loved ones. Just thinking about my Grandma makes me teary-eyed!

Got a photo to share? Were you spoiled when you were a kid? How was your childhood, more extravagant than mine? What are the things you miss?

- - -

I hope you guys enjoyed, there are more photos to come, and this should suffice for now until the Town Shootout Blog on Friday. If you wanna join Town Shootout, just head on over to Patty at Crisfield, Maryland - the next shootout is wildlife around your neighborhood, courtesy of Butler and Bagman at The Butler and Bagman Chronicles.

Much Love,

HA! Baby Pictures always make me laugh. Too cute for words!! I wish I had some baby pictures....


Sardonyx said...

Wow you're really spoiled brat hehehe. I never had any birthday parties when I was a kid and now I make sure that my kids will get what they want which I missed during my childhood days. I wish I can share my photos too I'll dig some if I could hehehe

John said...

loved those pics! I knew that was you in the red before you said it! You sure were/are a cute little thing! One thing I notice is a lot of happiness! much love, John

PS-I found your achives LOL great!

Linda said...

Thanks for sharing all these lovely moments from your past - you do look like you were a happy little girl. Of course, I would be, too, if I had had as many birthday parties as you did!! ;-)

TriNi said...

awwwwwwwwww I love your pictures.. you were such a cutie pie baby! :)

sorry I haven't been around in a while.

Been busy keeping up with the contest and then my computer was down yesterday :(

But good news is.. I won!

Gonna do a post about it tomorrow because I'm just too pooped out today lol.

Patty said...

Those are just special photos. I love all of them. Thanks for sharing.

You are just too cute, girl!

See you around the old photo shoot out on Friday.

Loida of the 2L3B's said...

Your mom looks cool.. You must be one lucky kid and cute too.. You made me miss Makati and the Phils as well.

Got a photo to share?
Yeah I got some, I'll gonna post it later.. But whew, you're 17 so when I was small maybe even your mom may not even been born yet..

Were you spoiled when you were a kid?
Ohh yeah, as a single child who wouldn't?

How was your childhood, more extravagant than mine?
During my time, Goldilocks and Rolling Pin Cakes were the best. I got once half a-meter tall ice cream cake from Magnolia when I was 6.. We don't hotel hop, we just used to have weekly outings and picnics with the whole family.. Lechon every week was considered a simple feast then.. Ahh those were the days.. Thanks for making me remember those precious days..

What are the things you miss?
The memories of the past. The photos I lost to remember those moments.

REDLAN said...

Nakapost na ako ng ganito kaso di ko mahanap sa archieve ko. sobrang busy pa ako ngayon but i love reading posts, including yours. break sa work ika nga, bloghop, blo reading muna.

Sue said...

Wow! I think this was a good post idea. Neat pictures!

HalfCrazy said...

@Wrench - I'm sure you have some. :P When I saw these pictures too, I can't stop laughing! Especially the last photo. That's like the dopest fashion ever, haha!

@Sardonyx - Di na ako pwede maging spoiled brat ngayon pero I still get anything I want LOL. Just not as bratty like, "I WANT THAT. NOW." LOL. By the way, you're right, give your kids what you never experienced!

@John - Haha almost all of my pictures, I always look happy; smiling, laughing and talking or I look lazy or sleepy LOL. My archives was never removed from that spot ever since I changed my layout! :P

@Linda - According to my Mom, I was always a happy little kid LOL.

@Trini - Haha, I understand, at least all your hard work paid off! You're now a rich biatch LOL. Glad you're getting some rest! :)

HalfCrazy said...

@Patty - Haha thanks too! I'm pretty excited about the shootout on Friday, I already started taking pictures!

@Loida - Yes, my Mom is cool, probably the coolest Mom in the world LOL. My Mom was born on 1958, maybe she's older than you, haha! And wow, those were some extravagant treats! Sarap nga naman ng Lechon! Ngayon minsan nalang makita Lechon, pag New Year or Christmas nalang! We always have one every year LOL. What happened to your photos!

@Redlan - Haha thanks sa pag visit ng blog ko often, I like visiting yours too! Met some people through your blog, especially Pinoys!

@Sue - Thanks, come again! :)

Michael Rivers said...

That's a great idea! I should do some blasts from the past photos too! I'm sure I have some winners to share on my blog!

Reena said...

aww, you're so cute! hehe..so you were born in 1992? am i right? i think i have a similar carnival ride photo. your pics made me really smile and think about my younger days too. :D

ALiNe said...

memories, memories... Cute naman ah!

HalfCrazy said...

@Michael - Haha, hope you find some time to do that! Maybe you have more Joan Rivers photos than old photos of yourself LOL.

@Reena - 1991. Di ko alam kung bakit yan 1992 LOL. Baka 2 years old nga ako nyan, nagkamali lang ata ng sabi sakin si Mommy! Mamya tatanong ko ulit para sayo, haha! Sana makita ko rin old photos mo, haha!

@Aline - Yung iba cute yung iba pangit lang eh HAHA.

Faisal Admar said...

omg hon! you were cute when you were a kid too??


love to see your smile. it make me feel happy and give me peace of mind. hmm... i can see you got a lot of presents too!

where's mine? haha

TriNi said...

Thanks :) Yeah I was pretty determined to win.

jackc50 said...

at least your baby pictures are in color...heehee. too cute but you know that. take good care, jack c

zman said...

absolutely adorable pics of you ...thanks for sharing ...Zman sends

InfoWebExplore said...

cool,,,how could you have so many pictures from so long in the past? were they in digital format, or had to scan them??anyway,nice memories.

shadowmoon said...

Heh, baby pictures.
It's always nice to reminisce right?
Though I probably have some pictures from when I was a kid I don't like seeing them. Maybe I'm too ashamed to see myself as an irrational being (not that now I'm THAT rational :P) or maybe it's because they're memories from a past that will never come back.
I don't miss much because I don't remember much too. My childhood was pretty...I don't know. I spent lot of time playing video games and that's pretty much all I can remember. Extravagant? That's up to each one to decided since I only had this childhood I don't have a parameter to compare.

Evita said...


It is so nice to meet you and see your pics from your child hood! It looks fabulous and you were so CUTE!

It is nice to have fond memories, but whether our memories are good or not, they do not have to define us or where we are now.

Generally speaking I had a great childhood, especially from an outsiders perspective, but as I was growing up, I started to become more and more aware of "things" and I started to see the world differently. I started to take "suffering" differently - that was all when I "woke up" out of the illusions that too often hold us back from being who we really want to be!

Thanks so much for stopping by Evolving Beings - I really appreciated your input!

TriNi said...

LOL yeah she knows. and yeah.. i help out sometimes.. "when I feel like it" lol.. hehe..

jk. I do help out.. but she encourages me to save most of it.. so it's all cool!

HalfCrazy said...

@Faisal - There were some photos of me and I find myself very ugly in those photos and I'm not kidding LOL. I don't wanna post it here, I might scare all of you hahaha! Ah well, that fugly stage is over for now!

@Trini - Well congrats! Now go help the poor or something LOL.

@Jackc50 - Of course I know that. LOL just kidding. It would have been cooler if they were in black and white! It would be more dramatic, haha! My Mom's old photos are just like that LOL.

@Zman - Thanks, haven't seen a photo of you, by the way! :P

@InfoWebExplore - Of course I had to scan them, haha! My Mom keeps like ten albums of all my old photos. I'm so glad she's my Mom! I love looking at all the old photos.

HalfCrazy said...

@Shadowmoon - I love reminscing. I know I can't get back to the old times lol. I'm gonna have to create my own good times which I'm gonna call old times someday. Haha, I spent a lot of time playing videogames too. I only finished a handful of games, though. Like 20-25 only.

@Evita - So nice to meet you too! :) It's really good to know how you changed! I'm sure a lot of people, if not all, hit that waking up realization too! I consider stopping by again in there! :)

Shey said...

Nice! Cutie pie photos! I will start digging for my old photos. Brings back happy memories. Thanks for sharing.

Shey said...

By the way, thanks for following me! :) big smile.

Have a restful night!

Jeni said...

That was a great post -very cute pictures (and yes, you were a really cute little tyke too, weren't you?) I love seeing pictures like this -strangers, my own, my kids, grandkids -you name it, I love em! Keep them coming!

HalfCrazy said...

@Shey - Maybe you'll find some black and white photos in your search? LOL.

@Jeni - You kept on saying cute, huh? Now I'm blushing LOL. Ah well, those are compliments for the old me LOL. Love your photos too, especially of Kurtis, he's my favorite out of all your grandchildren! :)

Garando said...

Lucky you! I just had Chupa Chups on my birthdays. :D If I'm lucky, a new pencil box came with it.

Thanks for sharing these priceless photos with us, I really enjoyed it. It must have been so nostalgic for you. Such an adorable and "bibo" little girl! :D

Andy Briones said...

Nice pictures, hehe. I like the one with you on a table in a hotel with cereal and a flower on a tray. :-)

Hotel food usually sucks, but the one we had in London is the best. I love, love English breakfast.

Look at you you cutie-patootie.......your first birthday!!!!!!! What a little princess you were and ARE;)
Thanks for the shoutout and see you tomorrow at the shoot-out.

Steady On

Raft3r said...

childhood photos are awesome
specially kung super embarassing

HalfCrazy said...

@Garando - Hahaha Chupa Chups! Wait, di pa nga ako nakakatikim nun eh! Tig pipiso lang gusto ko! :P I'm not sure if I'm still bibo but I'm crazy and energetic at times LOL. Mom said I never really changed my antics or whatever you call them.

@Andy - Thanks! But I look ugly in there LOL. Tignan mo buhok ko nakataas pa! Kainggit, London Breakfast!

@Reggie Girl - I shudder to think I was once adorned with stuff like a princess! I was more of a gruff (not so gruff LOL) one than a girly one! See you tomorrow at the shootout too! :)

@Raft3r - Oo, super funny nga. Para nga akong baliw habang tinitignan ko yung photos LOL. Meron akong picture ang itim ko pa eh. Ita eh hahaha! Thanks for commenting tol!

Mike Foster said...

I gotta say, you look like a really happy kid! Great pics!


the donG said...

it's nice to look back at the past. specially the ones when you're still small. maybe because we're the cutest at those times. hehehe... not sure.

didnt know that there was an old park in greenbelt.

thanks for dropping by eskapo.

Ebie (The Main-Ingredient) said...

You really had a blast. Nice post and I am getting to know you, na ha?

Ang ermat mo parang galing lang sa "Woodstock concert". : D

But in fairness, she's cute and pretty.

I love looking at old photos. Very nostalgic.

Oh wow! You had a photo of the old Greenbelt. I used to play around that pond whenever my family will hear mass. I loved watching the water lilies on that pond. :-)
