Thrift shop finds (Day 62 of Project 365)

I mentioned in one of my earlier post that I had to go shopping for our clothes for the Seoul trip. Here’s some of my finds: These are for the Queen: I love the details on this button down knitted sweater. I love the Chinese style buttons, which offsets the simplicity of the sweater. I…

Taking chances/Unexplained Art (Day 34 and Day 35/Project 365)

Day 34 I am married to a very gifted dude who loves to draw and writes poetry and short stories. The thing is, this dude I married had a fascination with the world of knights and castles, of monsters and things we’d rather not understand. Just this evening, I caught him all hunched up on…

strut ’em bipolar shorties!

The world we live in is one sick stage. Consider this “thing” we saw at the Landmark Department Store: The sis, the hubby and I were looking for new clothes when we came across this “shorts” (or are they denim panties?) — and we ended up laughing our heads off. We were arguing if they…

Of sisterhood and random photoshoots

Of all the things that bring the element of sweetness to the usual payday–one of the highlights for me is the little ritual I share with my little sister, my Unniechan (a portmanteau of the Korean and Japanese word for sister Uhn-nee and Onee chan ). My sister is 3 years younger than me, but…

Plucked and Wax’d!

There should be a law banning the use of wax strips. My sister, the Queen, has always been the vain and beauty conscious one. She was the person who introduced me to various beauty maneuvers that were apparently requisite for women: perming, hair relax, hair rebond and cellophane, as well as massage treatments. When I…

Chasing Meteors.

My post today is dedicated to my sister, The Queen and is inspired by one of the most prolific young actors who ever lived, Brad Renfro. This came about when I chanced upon The Queen watching a (lesser known) Renfro film called Deuces Wild and we fell into discussing on how talented Brad was, and…

DV Shopping

The height of flea-market shopping in Manila is a place called Divisoria. Located in the City of Manila, Divisoria is a sweet and sickening mixture of drop down prices, fashion knock-offs and an ugly mash of people which can get uglier when Christmas season rolls around in the Philippines. Ugly in a sense that you…

Lunching at Orchard Road with our kids

Me, The Hubby and the kids had lunch at Orchard Road last Sunday. Nah, we didn’t go to Singapore (I wish!) I was talking about Orchard Road, the less than a year old restaurant at Megamall. We also had the kids with us. Nope, we still haven’t got kids nor am I already pregnant. The…

Stuck on Forever

As previously posted, I have taken it upon myself to visit the new Forever 21 during its opening week. I did not have the balls to skip work when it opened Friday, never mind that those who attended the early opening got PHP200 voucher. I told myself that I’d rather go on a Saturday or…

Papa’s girl…

My dad turns 60 today. Along with his birthday comes wishes coming from our family that he live to a hundred. I refuse to consider any part of my life where my dad is not there. I am a papa’s girl, and I am proud to be one. My dad is hardworking, intelligent, witty and…
