Whaaat????? Hahahahahahahah! I know I haven’t been around in awhile, with the storms that passed here in the Philippines and all. But more than that, I prepared myself for my biggest day–yes! I just quit my job last Wednesday. Had a long talk with my boss but yesterday, it was finally official. Memos are out and I can now declare it.
I JUST QUIT MY JOB!
I know I made the right decision because I have never felt this good and happy the past few months. When I finally had my exit interview, I really felt happy and most of all, free.
Don’t get me wrong, I loved my job, I learned a lot, am friends with most of my officemates, will sorely miss them, yada-yada-yada. My officemate is probably right, “I will never find another office like this”. But the thing is, I felt so constrained and frustrated because it wasn’t enough or something. I needed to break free.
Just 3 more weeks and I’m out!
I have never felt so excited to go back to my roots. I will make my dreams and goals happen–freely.
I don’t want to delve in the details of the quitting day anymore. It’ll be too long to write. Haha. Anyway, I just felt that this outfit was perfect for the celebration. Totally opposite of the corporate considerations that I have to think of when dressing up for work. I felt like I was in College again — tank top, mini skirt… (oh, the days.. haha)
I am so ready to face the unemployed world and just take a break. I haven’t had a break since the Senior sem break (I worked straight out of College, just a day after Graduation. Hahahahah! Crazy, I know.)
Production, here I come! Oh, how I’ve missed you! I have so many plans right now, so many things that I want to do and I will make it happen!
By the way, I really, really like this necklace. 🙂 I have one in gold too. Will feature that soon.
*excited for November* Here I go! Wish me luck! See you around, loves!

Lately, I have been grabbing all the opportunities that come my way. But most of them never push through. I’m wondering, how come? Or why?
I do believe in fate. So are these opportunities just trying to make me see something? But I’m really not meant for them? Or is there something better for me? Hmmm… really makes me think.
Anyway, although, it does make me think about things and myself, I do not allow it to bother me that much. Hey, the show must go on right?
ANYWAYYYYY, the dress was a gift. I’ve been meaning to wear it but I couldn’t find the right occassion up until yesterday. 🙂 love it 🙂

Last weekend was a whirlwind! Wore this last Saturday. My day started with a meeting then work (bought stuff at the mall), then had a date with Johnny Depp *insert drool here* and then ended the night with an all-out videoke night and a good talk with a very good friend.
I have posted this already more than 2 months ago. But well, it such a pretty dress that it deserves a 2nd post and an all new look.
Gosh, I don’t know where to start!
For one, i think my morning meeting went fairly good. I just hope I get a call back.
The afternoon was much more fun! Elyoo and I watched Public Enemies *insert drool here, again*. Story wasn’t much but all the Johnny Depp *drool once more* made up for it! WATCH IT WATCH IT WATCH IT!. I now want a 30’s inspired ensemble.
The videoke night was sooo much fun as well! I love the songs! hahahaha! From Bohemian Rhapsody and What’s Up. Hahahahahaha! Really enjoyed this day! 🙂
As for this dress, it really is one of my favorite dresses! I just love how adding a couple of things or two would change the entire look. Can I safely say 50’s inspired? Not really sure on the era of this one. I think tights were more of an 80’s trend. Hmm.. what do you think? Thoughts? Anyone?
That was my saturday fun and really good. I think it’s all good now. Yep. It’s all good now.

As I was looking for something to wear last week, I stumbled upon this old bolero which I bought Christmas of 2007. I have absolutely forgotten that I had this and how much I loved it!
There was time that I would absolutely wear this with all the tank tops I ever had. For me, it isn’t the usual bolero that had capped sleeves and those that emmulate the typical polo-bolero.
More than that, I am a big fan of knitted fabric, so Iguess I really, really love this bolero so much!
I think I fll in love with the fabric and the sleeves. I love how it flows through my arms. Hmm… Gotta check the closet for some more forgotten items. 🙂

First of all, I’d like to thank my sponsor, Kia, for giving me this wonderful dress. Hahahaha!
During one of our Rummage Sale, while I was helping Kia sort out her stuff, I could not believe she was throwing it out! So I rescued the dress and took it home with me. I immediately knew what to do with it.
It IS bigger but with just a little adjustments here and there, its size created such a poofy, poofy skirt silhoutte—which I really, really love!
It also feels and looks like one of those classic 80’s dresses which I think I saw my mom wear in one of our photos.
I love this dress!! Only goes to show that another person’s trash can be another person’s treasure. 😉
Pardon the abundant photos— I really enjoyed taking pics of this one. 🙂

There are some rare days, when I feel like I want to look androgenous. Very rare days. It kind of looks powerful and hot hehe.
Or maybe it was the weather? Since it was really raining hard the entire week last week… Hmm
Or is it my frustration to wear a tailored suit? (like those white ones at the Red Carpet)
Or maybe, I have been watching too much Bones, that my addiction (and crush) with a Special Agent is taking over me.. Hahahahahaha!
For whatever reason, I do love this look (and the attitude / feeling that comes with it–but not on a daily basis). It was like wearing a costume again. 🙂

There are rare moments when you find yourself not doing anything at all. During these rare moments, you find yourself with options: do i sleep? pick up on an old project? or just sit and stare?
I chose the staring part. It’s weird. When it’s all quiet and you have nothing to worry about and you pause. Then thoughts come in your head and you start to think of things–things that you never had the time to dwell on.
When you decide to walk away,
would you look back?
Is there such a thing as going back?
Tsk. Tsk. Idle time is bad. It makes you think of things that you normally wouldn’t think of. Hehe.
