Walked to Greenbelt from Mark's apartment in Amorsolo. I badly needed the exercise. We gave Mark's driver a day off since we had to use him last Sunday. It was a good move. We were able to "tour" around Makati on our own. Thank God I know my way around esp going to Greenbelt since I've worked in that area before..aahh my PLDT days. Anyway, to pass time, we went to Time Zone near the cinemas and had a little competition. Mark is extremely competitive from air hockey (Mark won),  racing cars (I won several times hehe), basketball (I won again haha), guitar hero (tie?) to some shooting games (Mark won bah). 

I felt like a kid again playing with my "kalaro" and what can I say, there's still a kid in each of us <3

 

These Pretty Wild Things

Wore this at ROCKWELL'S URBAN BAZAAR last August 27, 2010. This beautiful leopard skirt was bought 2 years ago at Kirribilli Bazaar in Sydney. The original price was $62.00 but guess how much I got it? 5 fucking Aussie dollars!!! I had to buy a LOT of skirts. Apparently they were selling everything at a low price because the zippers were not working so I had the zippers fixed here in the Philippines for free. hahaha!

About the bracelets. It's interesting because I have been collecting bracelets and bangles since I was a kid. My lola would give me several, some were even diamond studded! My mother traveled a lot so she would give me several gold bracelets from different countries while I bought the others in my own travels as souvenirs. :)



shades from Sydney, necklace from YRYS, bracelets from random countries, random black spag, MINK PINK leopard print skirt I bought 2 years ago, ALDO black pumps

cool gold necklace, gold ring from my mother

Rockwell's Urban Bazaar 2010







went to Rockwell Urban Bazaar. A lot of hot chicks that most people missed ANNE CURTIS. I was lucky to spot her, she was apparently standing beside me looking at the same clothes. Trust the wide-eyed fangirl in me to quickly have a photo with her then run giggling.
poster.. 100 entrance fee BOO!

entrance
we stayed in front of this stall laughing.. mark wouldn't stop
hilarious :D
stalls..there were some nice stuff..bought a couple from the "nice" owners
mark loved his food from the portugese guy

 It was fun. There were some cool items but I really did not like some of the prices (considering the material used or the style) and some of the stall owners' attitude, particularly this one who's apparently selling "REAL" branded bags NOT 2nd hand original ones or triple A class copycat, I mean lady, whoever you are, of course we're gonna ask if you're selling the "original" I mean, it's a bazaar-- you wouldn't really expect someone to sell "original brand new uber expensive" bags there even if it were possible. Sheesh. I bet you were so defensive cos we pointed out the obvious.  

For a bazaar, it's the most "maarte" I've been to and I've been to a lot in other countries. "No taking pics, we have our own photogs, tickets for 100 pesos, a lot of owners with their YAYAS.. yes, in full yaya uniform this is aside from their hired sales ladies, collegiala english and so on" Jeez. I really miss the bazaars in Sydney. Open space, good food, good fashion, good vibes and some good prices.

Oh well, I guess I won't go back next year or maybe I will just to buy from those "cool designer ones". I still enjoyed it because Mark was such a good sport and we really enjoy shopping, hunting and just talking. Thank God for him.

Heart In A Cage

The Strokes shirt from B-Side
"Well I don't feel better
When I'm fucking around
And I don't write better
When I'm stuck in the ground
So don't teach me a lesson
Cause I've already learned
Yeah the sun will be shining
And my children will burn

Oh the heart beats in its cage"


I love The Strokes. I've always wanted a shirt like this so when I saw it in B-Side, it's one of those moments where "I JUST HAVE TO" buy it <3

All eyes are on you now

Miss Universe
Kamiseta brown bolero/cardigan (i dunno what to call it), Topshop blue polka spag, Supre denim shorts from Sydney, Mark's leather belt,  boots both from Sydney, gold owlfish necklace from my sister

Sunshine and Muffins In My Planet



If there is one person in the world who truly deserves his/her name it's Sunshine. Much like a sunshine, any place lights up whenever she's around; we can all thank her Chinese eyes for always smiling back.


College. I met her in St. Therese at UPLB. A dormitory run by nuns. She was my second room mate and the closest. She came of  as flighty yet stern. She knew what she wanted and was strict with her values and schedule. I thankfully adopted the strict schedule but not much the 'values' part since she considers herself a traditionalist when it comes to matters of extreme privacy and intimacy *hint* *wink*.


Zara/Miu Miu inspired dress, vintage lace cover up, Zara belt, Celine wedges, Accessorize earrings
 For a time, we were very close as I would recall. She helped me through my first ever break-up and I was there to help her with her debut. I remember that there was a   point where one of us could not sleep when the other is not around. That was really charming. She then transferred to UP Diliman to pursue Engineering while I stayed in Los Banos because of a boyfriend she introduced to my life c/o her suitor Henry. It was really upsetting though I know it was what she really wanted. There was no stopping her. After that, there were quite a few meet-ups and then she was gone again. Just like a sunshine on a slow sunset.


Years. After her backpacking trip with her cousin, Sunshine and I decided to finally meet. I took Mark along with our dog Mello. We decided to go to The Fort early so that Mello could have his recommended dosage of exercise according to Mark.

Come 6pm and we stayed at Conti's since it's the original meet-up restaurant. I was so excited to see Sunshine again. She was radiant in an elegant nude top and shorts, a bright smile to compliment our giddy embrace. Then she started talking and I shut up and just listened. I was that interested to hear about her travels and what's happened to her.


We moved to the restaurant beside Conti's--Duo. I was glad we moved since there was a couch outside. We were all able to settle nicely as rain poured providing a cool, cozy atmosphere.
 
Serendra is beautiful and I would want to live there. It's like living the yuppie life.

After a great dinner with the most amusing stories from her travels such as being devirginized by a tampon (HAHAHA), we headed to Shine's condo unit 5 minutes away from Duo.




The unit was very homey and was so comfortable I wanted to spend a night there. But I must say, the best thing about Serendra is that they allow pets inside!!! I soooo love Ayala for this.


Sunshine showed us her pictures from Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Australia. The exotic images ignited this urge to backpack and just go around Asia. Mark and I also planned this route actually. We were about to do some backpacking last year but it didn't happen. Oh well. We're still young...

happy...and full of promises ahead. She deserved that trip although we both told her that it would've been better with a boyfriend. But that's not what's really in our minds right now. We have goals and ambitions. We wanted to create our own universe.

As her chinky eyes waved goodbye, she almost tripped but was able to regain her balance. Adorable haha. We went our separate ways and promised to meet this December after her board exam. Catching up with Shine was really pleasant. I thoroughly enjoyed spending the night with three of the most lovable beings in my planet.


A planet with lots of Sunshine and Muffins <3

No to Excess Baggage

Simple Match white top, Supre denim shorts from Sydney, People are People gold studded belt, good ol Havaianas slim


It's really hard to deal with someone who's perpetually problematic, down and just has a lot of crap going on. I mean, you tried to help but you're already in this point where you just don't want to deal with him.


 

So maybe, you could just walk away. After all, nothing is permanent. They too shall pass.

Never A Blank Space


Places with art. Places that smell like cigarettes. Places that taste like liquor. Places with graffiti. Places with rock music. Places with good food. Places with uncompromising fashion. Places with character.
