one lifetime aint enough sometimes.

500 days of summer.

Narrator: This is a story of boy meets girl. The boy, Tom Hansen of Margate, New Jersey, grew up believing that he'd never truly be happy until the day he met the one. This belief stemmed from early exposure to sad British pop music and a total mis-reading of the movie 'The Graduate'. The girl, Summer Finn of Shinnecock, Michigan, did not share this belief. Since the disintegration of her parent's marriage she'd only love two things. The first was her long dark hair. The second was how easily she could cut it off and not feel a thing. Tom meets Summer on January 8th. He knows almost immediately she is who he has been searching for. This is a story of boy meets girl, but you should know upfront, this is not a love story.

this heat is killing me. i have turned into a sloth and unresponsive to irresponsible flirting. and i am feeling uninspired lately. in effect, i find myself reading all things melodramatic and devoured the script of 500 days of summer because forthelifeofme, i have lost the ability to understand any movie without subtitles. yes, even tagalog movies. this realization hit me after watching one too many japanese movies. and possibly because of tom and jerry overload as a child.
next script - alice in wonderland.
i pray you are all having a better and cooler week, guapas! mwah

i wore this for work last week.
top and skirt from a bazaar
snake bracelet : rustans
gold bracelet : a gift from thailand

dream a little dream of me..

the weekend passed by in a blur. binged on coke. ODd on gossip girl, barbie, and xena the warrior princess. don't ask why. ;()
it's 3am, i should be sleeping already.

here's to a great week ahead!


wore this to work a couple of days ago. i am enjoying the colors i am wearing these days. putting a smile on my officemates' faces, as well. ive realized i wear toooo much black and now i know why. black is for lazy dressers like me who do not want to think which shoes would look better on a certain dress. so i'd prolly be wearing more colors if i dont get too lazy and grab the basics again.

top: thrifted for 50pesos
bandage skirt : people are people

the home of the brave..

Saturday night was spent with a very good friend and his girlfriend. i befriended him because he had a great camera and he was always nice. forward to 2007, we got our hearts broken and i cried my heart out not knowing he was hurting, as well. jp, i have never thanked you enough for walking with me from the boulevard to hayahay just because i wanted some fresh air to clear my mind. you do know im always here for you, right? but of course, you have to bring your cameras with you.
we are doing some projects real soon and am pretty excited. i pray it would push through this time. mr. suave, if you ever find this blog, since you claimed you have magnificent googling powers, im gonna style all your shoots free of charge. haha and i cant wait for our APO island getaway.

and please stop making me do all these cheesy poses, i look like i was about to crack up in all the photos. :()

MANNY PACQUIAO, please marry me.

blazer: jessica
top : thrifted

the square root of four is rainbows.

It's time to try
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I am defying gravity
And you wont bring me down!

I'm through accepting limits
''cause someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I'll never know!
Too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I've lost
Well, if that's love
It comes at much too high a cost!

Saturday was spent watching GLEE.
i found it too cheesy at first. but whothehell was i kidding? being filipino, i know 99.9 % of the songs! ha! and yeah, the cute guys didn't hurt either. so what did i learn, you may ask? ive realized that deep inside all of us lurks a drama queen waiting to happen. and that for most people, it takes a lifetime for them to come into terms with their insecurities. and mostly, what all of us really yearn for is acceptance and to not be treated differently just because we are, well, different. for unending laughter watch it with a gay friend who knows the other .10% of the songs. much more fun that way.

dress: thrifted for 35pesos and was 6 sizes larger before i had it altered.
im not done with my panagbenga festival phase just yet. no, not just yet. ;()

summertime and the livin's easy...


it is still march but the heat is almost unbearable! our building's fire alarm went off yesterday when it reached 40 degrees C at 4 in the afternoon when it's not supposed to be THAT hot anymore. soooo out came all these dresses i have saved for the 'rainy days' (i.e. when it's too illogical for a girl like me whose closet is filled with all things black and wonderful to be wearing mmmm black!) didn't know there's a frilly girly-girl hiding inside of me. ha!

this outfit is sooo not me. but am loving it. so, yeah. it must be the heat.

floral dress: thrifted for 50pesos. yay!
belt: thrifted a long time ago
blazer: promod, which i cant stop wearing, sosueme.
ring: rustans
earrings: accesorize

and my dear sister, in case you ask, yes, i was talking to someone in the 1st photo. and yes, i am a poser likethat. haha i miss you.

rainy days and mondays.

i am a summer girl. but thanks to global warming, i am seriously hoping for the rainy days to come already. it is TOO hot even at 4 in the morning. for some strange reasons, i have a warmer body compared to most people and i sweat pretty easily. and this led me to not wanting to participate in any games as a child and to my preference to really short dresses. well, that and my being a Catholic schoolgirl all throughout grade school and high school(think: long skirts, high socks, shivers!)
this week is gonna be crazy. a lot of paperworks and studying to do. and it is not gonna help that i need to shed a few pounds for a project i am doing with a friend's friend.
i have already declared this year as my year and i am keeping the fire burning. no procrastination this time. it is my lil sissy's thesis defense today. send her all the love, you guys! ;()

and yeah. no work for me today. it's the Korean Independence Day! i am cooking pancit for a dear friend. my mom's gonna be proud. mehopes. iloveyou, mommy.
