Because matching shirts is so yesterday (Photo of the Day)

Bought the long-suffering hubby new boating shoes which I swear looked amazing on him. Saw that the shoes were mighty fiiiiine so I also bought one for myself too. Asked him yesterday if we can wear our matching shoes for our meet-up with my college friends and after a bit of hemming and hawwing —…

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…

I see you (Day 22/ Project 365)

Still not feeling well. I can barely swallow due to my sore throat and the head aches kept coming back. Anyway, being trapped here at home has its perks: for one, not going out this weekend meant that we managed not to spend too much money hanging out. Basically, we spent a lot of money…

Forever (Day 08/ 08 January 2012/ Project 365)

I am not married to an executive, or to an heir to a large fortune. I do not experience the comforts usually associated with that of a pampered wife–meaning, the hubby does not give me allowance which I can spend to my heart’s content. We do not have hired help and yes, we rent a…

The pressure of dressing differently

Feel free to lynch me if you think I am so full of air, I am starting to suck helium. Anyway, I was looking at new accessories at the Landmark with The Hubby, while trying to wrack my brain of what I will wear tomorrow for work. While going through the virtual catalog of my…

The evil Playstation Portable

I am silently contemplating murder as a type this post. Every now and then I shoot dagger looks on a stupid black console that the Hubby is holding, silently plotting ways to kill that stupid piece of machine that I have come to hate during the three short months that it’s been present in the…

I’m MAD about these MEN…

Men, they’re a complicated lot. I think they should come with a user’s manual or an operating system for easy reference and usage. In my life, only three men matters. That would be my dad, The Hubby and my baby brother. And as fate would have it, the men in my life takes the cake…

29 years.

SONNET XVII I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz, or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off. I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul. I love you as the plant that never blooms but carries in itself…

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…
