Have you ever seen your photo moved? It’s called Cinemagraph

I have an interesting thing to share this week, its called Cinemagraph.

Cinemagraphs are more than a picture, but not quite a video. Their main goal is to visually illustrate a short story.

It’s nothing impressive on technique but what makes cinemagraph unique is it brings back certain part of the photo to life. Making the entire photo more realistic and attractive.

The process takes many hours of manual editing.
The more complex ones take an entire day to pull together.

Look, my pants have a sublte movements as well

Anyone who are interested to do their own cinemagraph for their own advertising or for their personal works drop me a mail at info@shiella.com

Thunderbird Resort – Poro Point La Union

 Thunderbird Resort - Poro Point San Fernando La Union, Philippines
One of my bucket list this summer is to visit one of the famous resort in Philippines the ‘Thunderbird Resort at Poro Point San Fernando La Union’. Famous for its mediterranean structural design or the ‘Santorini, Greece style’. We wanted to stay here for atleast 3days. Unfortunately all rooms and villa is fully booked till august. So, we end up 2days to stay at the hotel. After we settled our luggages in our room, We didn’t waste time and started to walk around. The place has a really nice and spacious view though the swimming pool is suitable only for children. I was expecting for a five star hotel to have a separate pool for adults.
As we walked down to the beach, we are planning to do some water sports like kayak but its unavailable because all are taken and they only have 2 boats for the entire resort 🙁 . So we went back to the pool to try some back massage at the waterfalls and it somewhat fun doing it my hubby.
We had chinese buffet dinner at the Vegas Cafe located at the casino pavilion and had breakfast buffet at the Olives Restaurant. They served western and local food and I was totally in loved with their ‘Vigan longganisa, Espada ( dried fish ) and their homemade hot chocolate’ its just perfect for me.

Our room and the view pays off all my disappointments.

Pico De Loro Cove and Country Club – Nasugbu, Batangas

This is one of my weekend getaway with my family and we chose to visit Pico De Loro as recommended by a friend who also had a great experience here. At first glance the Pico de Loro Community looks Singapore to me ( or I just miss the place? ) but the place really looks amazing and you will definitely enjoy staying here as they have a lot of indoor and outdoor activities that you can do.

We rented a condo unit for a couple of days and brought some fresh seafoods that we bought a long the way. We spent our day at the pool and hit the gym early morning for some warm up. We wanted to do more but we didn’t have enough time as we are heading to Nuvali Tagaytay.

Have you been to Pico De Loro? Take a look of my few photos that I took from the place. 🙂

Make Up Forever Singapore (Make Up Competition Winner)

A few months ago I joined the Makeup Forever Singapore Makeup Competition.The competition is about using their Artistic False Eye Lashes. I chose the white feather one which is one of my favourite in their products and then I bought some colourful and unique feathers at Orchard to compliment with the false eye lashes that I chose. I carefully select my color palette for this concept so it will blend nicely with the feathers.

I was so excited when one of my friend message me that my photos was posted in the fan page of Makeup Forever.

I am very happy to won this competition and recently I went to their office to claim my prize. It was a nice office as all their staff was so friendly. I was thinking to enroll for their Makeup courses to further enhance my skills in makeup. It’s a little pricey though but I guess it’s worth it.

I will read more reviews and if possible ask people who have tried their makeup courses. If you know anyone who have taken the course in Makeup Forever kindly email me their contact at info@shiella.com I would be glad to give them some token just by sharing their experiences. 🙂
