about

Hello! My name is Chai. I'm a twenty-something self-taught photographer from the Philippines. I first picked up a dSLR when I was eighteen, and have been taking photos ever since. My partners: Ryuusei (流星), a Canon EOS 5D Mark I, and Reimei (黎明), a Canon EOS 400D. I like feelings of nostalgia and melancholy. I love wandering from place to place, getting lost in thought, collecting shiny little things, and sleeping like a cat for hours and hours on end. Also: the mori girl lifestyle, Japanese pop culture & street fashion, shoujo manga, floral and lacey dresses, watercolor paintings, indie rock music, iced coffee and milk tea drinks, polaroids, film, picture books, postcards, various paper-things. My life dream is to one day work as a photographer for several aomoji-kei and visual kei magazines. Also, to visit many different beautiful places and meet people around the world.

This blog, Oh My Little Girl, formerly Little Forest Girl, is my humble virtual home on the web. It has been around since May 2009 (though I've been blogging for much longer), and serves as a compilation of my photographs, outfits, things that inspire, occasional product reviews, obsessions, thoughts, and everyday musings. I do hope you enjoy your stay.
