My Devil doesn't wear Prada but I wish He did!

The book by my bedside for the past few days is The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger. I decided to read it already since in a couple of weeks the movie will come out and I usually try to read the book before I watch the movie.

Of course it's a total chick-flick but seriously, if you work here at my office, you don't want heavy dramas and complex plots running through your head during weekends when you just want to relax and play dumb.

Playing the devil, Miranda Priestly, is Meryl Streep and playing the lead role as the devil's assistant, Andrea Sachs, is Anne Hathaway.

Andy Sachs is fresh out of college and enters the world of Miranda Priestly, the ittest fashion editor of Runway Magazine. It's a job that... as all the fashionable anorexic and certified gays in Runway say... all girls would die for! But the reality is Miranda truly personifies a she-devil of a boss. Her demands can be unreasonable. No wonder no self-respecting girl can stand being her assistant. But Andy gets sucked in before she realizes the truth and her adventure begins.

I can't wait to see the movie. My imagination have run wild with all the wardrobe descriptions in the book and I see references to familiar names such as Hermes, Jimmy Choo, and Manolo Blahnik. Google those names for all you clueless out there.

But other than the clothes I'm looking forward to watch Anne Hathaway. Since her Princess Diaries days I've enjoyed her quirkiness and Julia Roberts-esque smile.

Comings and Goings

Yes it's been so long...

Been to Davao last week for work and squeezed in a little of sightseeing and durian tasting (ugh!) but other than that there's nothing to rave about.

I realized my life has become dull and uneventful with too much work. My occassional auction trips are the only respite I get from a monotonous existence here at the office. My vertigo doesn't make life easier being in a constant state of dizziness for the past several weeks. I'm spending so much for the meds which I have to take for a month. Still have a week to go. Whenever I buy a dozen (coz I can't afford to buy a month's worth in one go!) or so every week I feel like I'm throwing money away. Or throwing it in the wrong direction anyway.

At least I'm looking forward to a ten-day trip to Illinois next month. Somebody has to babysit my 12-year old cousin going back home and I'd be glad to do that since I'm not paying for my ticket anyway. I can't wait to see my favorite cousins! I'd love to travel to other places but my main purpose is to babysit so no extra trips to other relatives.

I'm also looking forward for a few thousand bucks coming my way next month. It's the bank's anniversary and I hear they give bonuses.

Maybe looking forward to watching Superman.

Think positive! I'm sure life isn't THAT bad.


I'm a day short of being permanent here at work.

Yipeee... sigh!
