This was only one show. But I am already okay with one show. At least for this year that is. First-timer, I won’t deny it. Hehe. I was like a little girl on Christmas Eve. I was just so giddy! (Thank you again, Jeffie and Pao Pao for the invites!)
*This is me trying to take shots of the show. But i couldn’t*
I was just in awe and before you know it, it was done. So, boo. No great photos during the night. Hehe.
*Watched Marlon Rivera’s show with Pao and my brother. 🙂 *
Met the nicest people, Jeff and his friends are sooo funny and nice. Saw Rica with her officemates, Nante with his officemates, Sir Ron Capinding and my brother introduced me to Mr. Frederick Peralta!!! Wow. Just wow. And as though things couldn’t just get better, we capped the night off with a fabulous and delicious meal at Sugi with Marc. Oh, such a great joy!
*This was actually my plan B outfit*
Although I was not able to wear what I originally intended to wear, I think the plan B outfit worked well. Most asked me why I wasn’t in a dress. haha. Well, I’m not predictable! Hahaha.
My main point, is that I would wear this pair of shoes no matter what. So, it worked out well. hehe.
This is one night to definitely remember!

Just when it was declared here that Summer was over, Summer came back. And oh, the heat! ayayay!
Well, everything is just a door of opportunity, right? Anyway, I took this chance to wear this tube dress. Who knows, Summer might be suddenly over again tomorrow. Haha.

*until you find a reason why..*
That song (in italics) is just stuck in my head but I don’t know who sang it or where I heard it. Sounds apt, though.
Definitely feeling much, much better! 🙂

I was feeling a little blue the past few days which sucked all the energy and creativity out of me, ergo, I wasn’t at all productive. When I told myself to snap out of it, I decided to wear something cute and fun.
Also, since Matts mentioned it to me, here it is, I am now smiling. haha. I also had a little fun when I took the photos. 🙂
*It’s going to be a…*
We all have our ways in creating our wardrobe for the day. Usually, for me, the shoes make the outfit but more than this, mood plays a big role. We usually hear people say that their outfit depends on their mood at that moment. I think it’s a two-way street, you can actually help change your mood (especially when it’s leaning on the negative side) when you wear bright or fun outfits. It did help me! Hehe.

OH YEAHHHHH!!!! FASHION WEEK BABY!!!!!
Last Wednesday, I was telling Rica how nice it’ll be if you can be part of the Philippine Fashion Week. I was gunning on trying to find part-time jobs to get in because I never thought I’d be invited. That same night, during the AP2407 meeting, Paopao and Jeff gave me the most fabulous invite ever!!!!!
*When I got this last Wednesday, I had a huge smile on my face the entire night!*
PAO and JEFF!!! I love you both!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited!!!! Hehehe. I’ll be watching the May 26, 2009 show. Gahd! Can’t wait!!!!
The sun comes up and the rain pours down. We all walk around amidst all the changes that life brings us.
I never really dreamt of travelling the world when I was a kid. I was satisfied with staying put. But one thing I learned is that, as my friend Kia always tells me, Change is the only Constant thing in the world.
Recently, as I travelled to another country (after 20 years) with my friends, I now have the desire to travel the world. Well, I plan to see Southeast Asia first. I think countries in the Southeast Asia region are very much Oriental in general.
We constantly walk and experience something different everyday even though at times we feel this isn’t the case.
It interests me on how cultures are very different in detail but the general truths in life hold true for everyone. I really do want to see the world and experience everything that I can. (haha. This life plan talk last Friday really got me to thinking. Tsk tsk, Nante. haha.)
People come and people go. Everyone does at one point.
I am so excited to fulfill this traveling agenda. Hehe. And I will definitely pursue it. First stop, Malaysia, next stop Bangkok. *wishing!*
Oh! and I LOVE this umbrella!
Dress: Oriental print, The Flower Collection
Umbrella: Genki umbrella, Philosphy
Actually, the weather is just confusing! Last week, when I woke up, the sun was suddenly gone and weather reports announced a storm passing by Manila and North Luzon. But then there were moments that were sunny. Confusing, confusing weather.
I do love the rainy weather (too) because it gives me a reason to pull-out the trenches and layer, layer, layer. Had I worn this with boots and a black trench, I could claim it as channeling Kate Moss, but for this one, maybe, just a semi-Kate Moss.
The glasses on the other hand is very old. It was actually my dad’s which we just found by accident in my mom’s drawer as she was cleaning up the entire house. Yes, my father was as thin as I was and so the glasses fit me perfectly.
I saw photos of my mom and dad when they were about college students and man, they were both so thin! My mom was actually thinner than I was!
*Kudos to Dad for owning such a wonderful pair of aviators!*
It’s such a great find isn’t it? I wonder how it looked like when my father wore it because I remember my mom’s face lighting up and transforming into this dreamy state when she saw this pair (after a loooong time now). Haha.
