Almost Autumn

Of course there's no autumn here in the Philippines. But September marks the start of another festive season in the country -- Christmas season! :) The air's been getting cooler (at least at dawn).

Maria Elena

I recently watched Vicky Christina Barcelona and has been in love with the character of Maria Elena (portayed by Penelope Cruz)... the wavy/messy hair, the lips (!!!), the eyes, the way she speaks the Spanish language, the disheveled clothes like she has just made love with (Javier Bardem). Gah! Penelope is lovely, but she was very lovely as Maria Elena.

Sunshine Corazon

Yellow, as I may have mentioned in a previous, previous blog, is not my favorite color. It's my sister's favorite color. Yellow may as well represent the Philippines these days, and probably for six years because our current president is a famous yellow (too much smoking makes you yellow) guy.

But I found this beautiful pair of yellow pointed flats with rhinestones at a thrift store and I just have to have them. I even hid the pair from my sister for a while for fear she will get them. It helps that she's about 2 shoe sizes smaller than mine. :D ha! I debuted the pair today and I was very happy and my feet felt beautiful until the shoes broke through my skin and I had to buy a pair of slippers at the mall! Bleh

But they're beautiful noh?

And...speaking of yellow.. have you seen the pilot episode of Glee Season 2.. with Charice! I'm not a fan of Charice but I find her very cute in her Telephone duet with Rachel. Rachel's sooo envious and mean already.. but I look forward to seeing more of Charice and the whole of the Glee gang. :) I'm also praying for Javier Bardem to appear in one or more episodes. He's currently my new crush.

Around the City

Meet Cebu City. :) -- my adoptive city. You know, I'm not a local Cebuano but I have been living in the city for more than 10 years now. I've been here since I was 12 years old. I could never become a Cebuano but I love it as much as my island-home. Cebu is where all of my closest friends and love live, and Cebu is the place who have contributed so much to my growth.

So, meet Cebu City. These pics were taken last Thursday, a Cebu holiday, in celebration of one of Cebu's most famous man, Sergio Osmena.

Making Time

When people I know ask me how I do it -- work, school, shop -- I am always hesitant to tell them that it's only up to you to make time for the things you love (and love to do) in life. I am always at a loss of what to say and blurt out something offshoot like, "I don't sleep" or "I am barely alive." Those are not true. I sleep and I am very much alive! :)

Hope all of you are making time to do the things you love to do... and having fun while doing those things! :)

Black under the Heat of the Sun

I would not mind wearing all black (or black/white). I am a fan of black. But, because I am such an ADHD person, black, when worn over and over becomes boring. And I thank the heavens for colors! and prints! :P
