Sinking In

School wasn't that fun. Honestly. And my day was pretty much incomplete without my best friend. I mean, I'm used to having him around.. in school especially. Oh well, I'll see him tomorrow -- I MUST SEE HIM TOMORROW! I'm borrowing a jacket from him for the show on Friday.

YES!! -- I am going to watch a fashion show with my friends from school at SMX on Friday FOR REALZZZZZ! I know I just said in my recent post that I'm pretty lazy but after a while (Probably a few hours or so), I became excited. Especially when my dad told me I could actually go. I'm ecstatic! He's not really the type who'd allow me to go to a far away place. So maybe MoA isn't too far, but from where I live, oh boy I think I need a visa! Anyway we're watching Gerry Katigbak, Lyle Ibanez and Ramon Favila. Now, I'm actually looking forward to something. Something that is actually worth my time.


Right now I'm not really fussing over what to wear because what I'm actually nervous about is the hair and make up. EEK. I was thinking of something a bit Asian (Korean for me, LOL). And the make up is just.. I DON'T KNOWWWW O_O And also how to not be in the inis init zone. No to shiny face and sticky feelings! That's just gross. :( Oh well, I guess I'd have to get myself an oil film. And oh, the clothes are good but my footwear is still pretty much undecided. I'm eying on a pair of plaid, round-toe pumps I found at the Ukay nearby but I'm saving the cash for Friday. So yes, I do not know where to get shoes. And I'm not going to wear my four-inch stilettos, please.. have mercy on my poor feet. But I am sort of choosing my blue, patented peep-toes.. although I want to wear stockings. *sighs* This is more difficult than I thought.

OK, so right now I am fussing about everything. My whole wardrobe, shoes, hair and make-up! UGH. And I should charge my cam's batteries. They're acting very.. old -- if you know what I mean. Also, KdM is in need of updates. And the fashion week is a good source of outfiteros out there. So if you're one, then you should probably lurk around the Makati area (Glorietta / Green Belt / Ayala) and the Ortigas area (Shangri-La Mall).



*dies out of frustration* LOL

27 May 2008


Yesterday was the start of the Philippine Fashion Week and oh boy, for me it was a disaster. The sun was up and it was SO HOT OUTSIDE.

In a nutshell, I wore my BOOTS to start the lovely week. Well the bad parts were that I wore a purple cardigan that made me look fat, a black tank top and shorts that totally didn't match the cardi. :( To me it was a disaster. I could've worn a big shirt, a skinny belt and shorts with Havs for all I care and still carry the look well even if it's basically trash. BUT NO. My outfit yesterday: FAIL! Good thing today was different. Andrei thought I looked nice and so did Aki. I love them both. And I was thinking.. today will be MY start for the Philippine Fashion Week. Yesterday was too much of a mess. Oh, and my classmates scored passes for a few fashion shows.. I can come, sure. IF I'm not too lazy. Maybe Aki and I could just kick it at the mall or something. I don't want to spend too much cash. That would be bad. :( I'm saving up for something very important. But I will still be buying these shoes I found in the ukay. Round toe pumps are love! And the flat ankle boots, I might get for Aki. Or myself. Hah, whatevs.

I'm tired and my eyes hurt.

DAVID COOOOOOOK! AAAAAHHHH!!! *goes ballistic some more* He certainly deserved the title. He's amazing! But there's no use denying that the other David is great as well. I had goosebumps when he performed Apologize with One Republic. I wasn't able to watch it live though because I was still asleep during that time because I slept and came home late. But I was able to watch the replay. THEY'RE ALL GREAT :D And Danny Noriega lost his hair. :( Oh well. I'm just so glad that David Cook won. Not too surprising, I guess?

Do You See The World?

Yesterday I went to David's condo in Makati before mom dropped me off at school. And he showed me a video of Mico and I. Seriously now, I was laughing my ass off. And David got mad at Mico for saying "I'm bitch! I bake (Or was it make? Gah!) cake!". Actually, it was really funny that's why I was laughing.. and the way he said it. Classic! And then after seeing the video and lying on his bed for a few minutes, mom had decided that she should send me to school. So I left.

Funny.. when I was climbing up the stairs, Arci totally freaked out when he saw me -- WITH BANGS! Yeah the short ones. He thought I was some Korean. Sorry, sorry.. I don't have pictures. It's in my camera, still. So yes, everybody in the classroom was pretty much surprised by my sudden change of hair style. If you're wondering what got into my mind when I did this, I was simply bored with my current 'do. I pretty much ignored my round face. I know it was a wrong move. I shouldn't have cut it too short! Hahahaha! *regrets*

After school, my friends and I went to Glorietta (as usual). Aki bought fabric and I saw my mother so I just came with them (her and tita D) since according to her, we were already going to leave in a few minutes. So okay, I came with them and all that. And then, they made me go to where David is and help him shop for long-sleeved polos for school (today is his first day! He goes to CSB :p). So he got one from Folded and Hung, and then two from Maldita. I actually helped him choose the one with the purple pin stripes. For more obvious reasons? Purple is my favorite color. And let's just settle upon the fact that the polo was really nice. So we continued going around. Tita and mom went to where we were (Maldita) and then she (David's mom) paid for the polos. He got a white one too. It's too sexy. He looked like a porn star! Haha, yes I'm kidding. So anyway, we got a necktie from Bench. I honestly don't like Bench as an option for buying neckties. We (David and I) had an eye on this necktie from Maldita. A white, skinny tie. Perfect for any polo he has. Especially the purple one of course! And the one with the black stripes. It's really nice but then they ran out of stock in the Glorietta branch which absolutely sucks. And then we went to Rustan's and looked for the perfect bag where David can put his laptop in. He found something, but his mom didn't like it. And I found something I like too.

Since I was going to start training for football when school starts, I currently have my eyes on a pair of cleats from Nike. It's so glorious! I already love it! -- plus, it's not too expensive. And yes, it is such a misfortune to not be able to find a picture of it. It's black with silver. Haay. *day dreams*

This is a poor excuse of having to post something. This (referring to the image above) is not the ones I want. My brother has the exact shoe. And yes, I'm jealous. He's so meticulous! Sam only uses this pair when he has a game. For training he uses his red Mizunos. Which I don't have a problem with. I'm just envious of his spikes. LOL.

I might settle for Nike Tiempos. They're simple and classic. Hmmm.
Pretty, don't you think? LOL. I'm very very excited. For training and school. Gah!

Not to mention, excessively nervous for the upcoming school year. I think I'd have to wear a headband all the time to not expose the bangs until they're long enough to flaunt. Two weeks would be enough. Oh wait, two weeks from now my classes start. Ok, that's good enough.

17 May 2008


Last night I was watching Moonlight over RPN/CS. And boy, last night's episode was too TWILIGHT! If you're a Twilight fan then you should go watch Moonlight's 10th episode. It's insane! I mean seriously, while I was watching it, the scene became too familiar. Especially during this one scene. I swear, you should go see it! Here's the link of the episode: CLICK! It made my heart wild inside my chest while clutching the pillow towards me. I love vampire stories ♥

* * *

So tell me about the Philippine Fashion Week (which starts on May 26 and ends on June third)! Anyone going to watch a show or something? Tell me how you got in, please! Haha, well me and my fellow fashion school students (classmates) have decided that since it's going to be fashion week two a week from now, we should dress up as well. Hey, the catwalk isn't the only place where you can showcase your fashion sense, right? If ever we don't get to watch a fashion show, I guess it's okay. And I just found out yesterday that we were going to have a fashion show. Insane as it may sound, it's true. I just don't know how they're planning to do this. I'm scared cos I won't really be able to participate in it since I don't make clothes, I just put them together (Styling lol).. that's my forte actually. That and photography (I'd like to think, at least). I'm hoping this goes really well. Everything I discussed in this single paragraph, I mean.


Matt and Sonny are coming over. I hope they don't get lost, though. Gotta take a bath and be decent.


I don't know if it's me or it's them. But I feel like bashing a baseball bat into someone's (a very specific someone at that) face. Have you ever dealt with a suitor who told you that he really likes you and then all of a sudden you find out that he has a girlfriend but didn't when he started courting you? Do you get my point? Okay so it's like this, a guy was courting me, and then he told me that I was the only one he's courting. And then a while ago (literally), I found out that he has a girlfriend! So sabay kami niligawan. I'm suddenly so bitter. Maybe because I sort of like him. Good thing it didn't go all the way. Oh well.. UST, HERE I COME!

12 May 2008

Gloomy Weather

The weather matches what I'm currently listening to right now. Which is Forbidden Love by Death Cab For Cutie. It's suddenly so depressing, thinking of what could happen in the near future and whatnot. I shouldn't be thinking about this in the first place. The future is far too unpredictable and I couldn't make assumptions about it -- I could only hope. And so could you.

Oh, and I would really appreciate the outdoors at the moment. I'd gladly wear my hoody because that's what I absolutely miss about the rain. And being able to dress up in layers, using the coolness of the weather as an excuse. Besides that, I miss being in my tights. I've done enough shaving for the summer.

I hope it starts raining a lot again. That would be just glorious. Actually it already have. But not in Makati, of course. Okay forget the raining part, I just want the weather to be cold and gloomy. I don't have any umbrella with me now.

Mother's Day

First of all, I just want to greet my mom a happy mother's day. Oh, and to Pepper as well (the dog :P)! Today has been a good day for all of us, I can tell. No conflicts or whatsoever, and the weather is fine as well. It was rainy during the afternoon, just my kind of day.

I heard there's going to be another transport strike tomorrow :( They've been doing that a lot lately, so I usually have a hard time going to school whenever it happens. Maybe I should just go to Shang and hang out with Desi, something like that. Hmm. Or play badminton. Haven't played in ages! I need exercise.

Light touch my hand

You might have noticed the new addition to my blog (the player) which currently plays my favorite song at the moment: Golden Skans by Klaxons. What's there not to love? It's an absolutely dancey song and I wouldn't want to not dance with it. I would have grooved with the beat together with Aki. Since we do that a lot in school.. an abrupt dancing, twirling around and banging our heads. That's how we do it.

Today is the day when I'm going to start working on my tote bags. Of course, I'd have to start with myself and what I want. Since it is - after all - my business. And I suddenly had this urge of making a Klaxons tote. That would be rockin', don't you think? But I don't think that's allowed, I might as well ask the band themselves. I mean, send them a message through MySpace? But then if it's for personal use, right? Do you think it's okay? I'm hesitant.

* * *
I'm deleting some of my deviations (DeviantArt) right now while listening to Jesus Christ by Brand New. Since I won't be needing all of them anyway, I'm just removing what does not belong. Or once did, but not anymore. You get me here? Failed attempts of being a photographer. Images I took when I was still starting. And it kinda goes way back - around two years, perhaps? Images that don't make me happy (as a photographer) anymore. And that's it.

I was home on a Friday night, and now on a Saturday. For the same, obvious reasons. Couldn't really do anything about it. And I'd still rather be here than outside. I'm basking in Moonlight goodness. But then I couldn't concentrate very well. My mind is elsewhere. Probably in a place where I could dance all night to post-punk, Brit-rock, electro-rock, and whatnot. Wear my best outfit and be with my friends. Do our thing all night long. We had a plan, you know.. have ourselves guest-listed in one of Manila's clubs.. Jaipur and Embassy. Then go back and fort all night and just dance.. maybe meet a few good people who can strike up a nice conversation. Ehh, too bad my parents don't usually allow me. Some day :)

PLUG!! My production will be having another gig on the 21st. Hope you can come! It's going to be a

9 May 2008


Jason Castro is out of American Idol :( T_T I'm sad because I won't be able to see him there anymore. But I would have to be honest with all of you, he does deserve it - getting voted out, I mean. He forgot the lyrics to I Shot The Sheriff. Not very nice. Too bad, I like his voice (and his face) - it's so smooth and calm and cool and it's like a lullaby to my ears. But then, he just doesn't deserve it. He's against David Cook, David Archuleta and Syesha Mercado for crying out loud! And I'm most definitely confident that David Cook will make it to the grand finals. And he'd probably be going against David Archuleta. But I'm so betting on David Cook -- all the way.

Ugh, I already know what people in church will be telling me on Sunday. About the whole Jason Castro, getting voted out and stuff like that. They won't be a lot though, it'll be easy to handle. And I definitely won't let it get out of hand. Definitely not! As long as David Cook is there, I have nothing more to worry about. But his votes. :))

Other things that I'm very thrilled about? Can I say Breaking Dawn and Midnight Sun? And the fact that I just had the two books reserved? Can you believe it?! Midnight Sun is really going to be released after Breaking Dawn! At first I couldn't believe my ears when I asked the girl behind the counter at Power Books if she's actually talking about Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer and the fact that she told me yes blew me away! I hope what she's saying is true, though. Because I'm just so anxious to get my hands on it.

Hyperventilating - one thing that I've been doing a lot lately. Crazy, isn't it? Whenever I read, I suddenly notice how uneven my breathing gets. And it's not really fun.. listening to myself breathe that way. It's very annoying.

To all Quizilla enthusiasts out there (like myself). Check out the new layout!
Sassy isn't it? I mean, of course it's confusing! I'm still trying to familiarize myself to it and I bet it won't be too hard. It's just like the previous one, I hope. Although there are big changes.. both literally and not. Right now I'm having a difficulty with it.

And another thing..
I'm more of a fan of their love story than the others. Oh, and Blair's too. It's better than Serena's. I love Serena and all that but her love life rocks too much. An unstable one like her mom's and her best friend's is almost exactly what I'm looking for. I love conflicts. And I love it not applying to my own life. I feel like I'm too ordinary for that.

Random Things

What makes me happy at the moment?
  1. Moonlight - an American supernatural television drama created by Ron Koslow and Trevor Munson, who also serve as executive producers alongside Joel Silver, Gerard Bocaccio and Rod Holcomb. The show is a paranormal romance series that follows a private investigator, Mick St. John (Alex O'Loughlin), whose bride, Coraline (Shannyn Sossamon), turned him into a vampire on the couple's wedding night 55 years prior; he struggles in the present day with his love for a mortal woman, Beth Turner (Sophia Myles), and his dealings with other vampires in the city. --Wikipedia

    Do you now see why I adore it? So we don't have cable, but thanks to RPN 9 I get to see it on Fridays. You should see it too, it's interesting. It's a bit different from Twilight though, but the whole vampire-fell-in-love-with-a-mortal essence is there. Good enough, right?
  2. Chuck - an American action-comedy television program created by Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak. The series is about an "average computer-whiz-next-door" who receives an encoded e-mail from an old college friend now working in the CIA; the message embeds the only remaining copy of the world's greatest spy secrets into Chuck's brain. -- Wikipedia

    Maybe I'm such a freak for these odd-storied TV shows but who cares? I was born deprived from the gloriousness of cable channels so don't expect me just ignoring CS. And besides, I'm such a sucker for CSI-ish shows (Although this one clearly isn't).
  3. The Virgins - let me tell you something: it was already love when I first heard their songs. They're a band based in New York (YES YES YES, NEW YORK!) who played a mix of new wave, R&B, soul, post-punk, and probably a little bit of everything else. I would have compared them to Klaxons (which I love as well), The Strokes, The Kooks, The Arctic Monkeys, The Kills, The Shins and a lot of other bands that start with The. They have a Brit-punk feel, obviously. But honestly, you should try and listen to them. They're good. I found them in MySpace while randomly opening music profiles. And they so don't remind me of Metro Station. Ugh. I'm not being a prejudice here, it's probably because Trace Cyrus is Miley Cyrus' brother and they're completely opposites (physically). And besides, I'm not exactly a fan of ms. Hanna Montana. No, not at all. What an awful way to end this paragraph for such a good band.
  4. Tote Bags (in general) - but I'm specifically loving my TopShop shopper bag as they call it. Although I must say that it's not really a great buy at PhP495 when I can buy something cheaper. But I really like it. And I can't just let it pass. And this totally inspired me on my up and coming passion. Meaning, I'm going to produce my own. Might as well make use of this sewing skill of mine. To think that my mother is very supportive with my idea. And we have tons of canvases here at home! Ugh, I had no idea that I could actually use them. And my mother was thinking of producing bags as well. Wow, I'm going to come in handy! It's better than not doing anything about my newly-acquired talent (sewing, which I learned last July07. Okay so not-so-new talent). I'm really thrilled of selling my own products.. FINALLY SELLING MY OWN! Do you know how frustrating it is for myself? I can't just style for Aki forever. But don't get me wrong here, I love styling for Aki.
  5. Green Eye Shadow - absolutely perfect for brightening up any day! Literally, any day! I've been sporting this lately. Since I feel unpretty to the extremes lately. Maybe because my period is coming up. You know how a lady's skin breaks out (ZITS! Ack.) when she has or will be having her period? Yeah that way. I don't know how it is for you, but that's how it is for me. Not very nice, nah-uh. So the eye shadow is totally helping. As in, totally! And I'm so happy I bought an eye shadow palette from Penshoppe. Very cheap! And very handy too. I'm so lucky to have it. It's not much of a scene-stealer like blue. Now, now.. I don't have anything against blue, okay? Blue is very calm. But so is green!

Well that's it for now. I had tons of fun listing these random things. I don't really need a lot of random things to rant about since it's clearly hard to think of five. But I know more will come up. Probably tomorrow after going to UST. I might go. With my dad of course who is going to get his schedule for the upcoming semester. So we could also go and check the uniforms. Which, as I was informed, have to be dealt with, with a seamstress. All along I thought it was ready-made. Boo-hoo to that. Not too great, right? The hassle of having it made and all. I'm afraid to attend the first day with out a uniform. That might just be mortifying. What will my professor say? *worries*

Things are suddenly great (despite the fact that my phone is broken)! Let me count the facts.
  1. My mom and I are okay now. So that's great.. And my life isn't completely ridiculous. And it isn't completely hell.
  3. Panic! At the Disco LIVE IN MANILA
  4. I might just be able to go.
Okay so I never really outgrew my music-loving spirit. Since everything depends on the mood when it comes to me. Seriously. And right now I'm all about Twilight. Reading, writing and apples. How weird could I get?

Right now I'm practically hyperventilating as I watch the teaser trailer. OH MY GOD. And I'm reading the book again, for Christ's sake. Most of us, Twilight readers, don't really have any problem with that. And it's practically what I enjoy. With my phone busted, no texting, no sound-tripping, then I'd have to go with reading. And with my brother around, there's almost no way I could escape with the Net. *sobs* Well anyway.. yes, my phone is broken, the LCD is literally whacked. Not the way I want it to be though. And what I really feel bad about, is that all my contacts (bands, stuff like that) are there. So, you get my point right? And the quotes I like from New Moon and Eclipse and Twilight. :( Twilight though.. well my book looks pretty stupid right now, because I've marked all the nice quotes. So no problem with that. But what the hell, right?

You don't know where I'm getting here, do you?

No sweat. ;)

Me Day

Today wasn't a very bad day. It's an extremely bad day. And I'm desperately looking for something that would knock me off for the whole day, just not to deal with the problem(s). My mother just snapped at me again. She always does, I suppose. Honestly, what I did was very petty. And it doesn't deserve to be credited. I know I'm not the best kid around the block but maybe if she'd give me a break, maybe if I gave myself a break things would then go well. See, I was thinking of maybe not living in this house for the mean time. It's making me sick, seriously. And believe me, my life is officially rotten. Well of course that only happened around four hours ago. When my mother told me to not go to school today, and to not go to the shoot on Thursday where I'll be the stylist and photographer (everybody's portfolio purposes). She doesn't understand me. My moodswings aren't very frequent but hers it's like one minute she's in a very chirpy mood and then it changes the next. It's awful, believe me. I've been in this house for seventeen years, seventeen years of my life I've been practically taking it all. You know how stressful it is for me?

Five years to go.

I wrote that on a part of my wall five times. Five years from now, after college and a year after that, I'm planning to get a job abroad. Oh you know, a typical Filipino's fantasy to get out of the country? Turns out I'm one of those very typical Filipinos. I love the country, but then I guess my luck doesn't really belong here. Hopefully I can get a job I like in England or the United States. Is it not a very bad plan? After college I'm planning to work for one more year in the Philippines, just to save up enough money for all the placement stuff, VISA and whatnots. Obviously, I'm taking this very seriously. And you have no idea.

On the lighter side, guess what I found. This is because I don't want to wallow in self-pity all day long. This is because I want to be happy -- and this is what makes me happy.

Nobody knows what's going to appear on the real Breaking Dawn book cover. But I just showed you the most promising ones from its MySpace account. Isn't the first one so intriguing? It gets everybody excited. It lacks a little something though, if you know what I mean.

And of course!
Everybody must love Twilight's promo picture. Heck, I almost hyperventilated when I saw it!
But I think this (above photo) should be the official Twilight poster. Or is it already? It's my wallpaper (cellphone, laptop and computer. Yes, I'm a freak) and I think this is a good way to represent the movie. Since the apple (which is on Twilight's cover) is very, very recognizable by the readers. Anyway, I think I'm already too happy by just discussing with you my favorite book. Ah, and I'm thinking of reading Wuthering Heights next. Catherine's lines intrigued me. And then Love Falls. And how could I ever forget the Gossip Girl series?

Have I mentioned that I'm not supposed to use the computer? Ah well. Too late, I already have.

I Love The Rain

This afternoon, the heat was unbearable. Just like yesterday. But come three pm, the weather changed abruptly and caught me by surprise. A surprise that I most definitely love. The downpour was amazing. The heat was somewhat washed away. But there was this sticky feeling. Ugh. But it was all worth it.

Fashion is just so better when it's cold.

I Always Want You . . .

So I finally saw a few parts of the upcoming Twilight movie and boy I was delighted. I got even more excited than I was before! And I found gazillions of icons! They're love.

The other day (Wednesday), I was with Krista and Gen in Starbucks and we were having a healthy conversation about - well - Twilight. And then Krista had a bundle of quotes from the books in her phone which later on inspired me to hook myself up with my own favorites. So last night - or should I say, really early this morning - I gathered all three books with me, Post-Its, a pen and scissors. You should see my books right now. Filled with green paper with quotes at the side! I love Twilight. I'm practically tongue-tied right now to make up flowery words. Hah.

Can't wait. xx
