Today I wake up with my throat aching like crazy. Huhuhu.
I tried over dozing with Vitamin C but I may be too late. We'll see.
Still tons of stuff to do and the relatives are starting to pour in from around the world. Sigh.

But they said once you've tried it, you'll want another one again.
Since I've been displaced to sleep in the ground floor guest room that has a t.v. hooked to Destiny cable, I have access to Travel and Living. One of the shows I'm currently addicted to right now is Miami Ink. A reality show about tattoo artists in Miami and the people they meet. The customers usually talk about the significance of their tattoo and what pushed them to get one.
Their creativity is amazing! Most of the time they do freestyle, no patterns just straight drawing on the skin. It still comes out great! Envy! Sometimes they bombard the artists of many images, the challenge is to incorporate all the elements to one tattoo and draw it in a limited area. Still, it comes out awesome!
Now I'm inspired to get another one.
My triquetra, unfortunately, isn't colorful. I want one in color. Maybe on my right pelvic area. Hmmm... a shooting star? Or an elaborate floral design?
All I have to think about now is the pain. Sigh.

I can't multi-task anymore. Too tired.
One thing at a time and right now I just want to work on my wedding.
Promise... Wednesday is my first day... unless they call a group meeting...
Urgh! Such a workaholic!!!

I just saw this one on HBO recently. The Holiday is a story of two women, continents apart, swapping homes for the holidays to get away from the men in their lives. But unexpectedly find new men to fall in love with.
Jude Law is a total hottie here! But that's not the only reason I love this movie. Other stars include Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet and Jack Black. It's a total chick flick!
My ultimate holiday movie is Love Actually. I can watch this one over and over and over and over... well, you get the idea. I've even memorized the lines! This movie is a hodge-podge of lives of different people and their encounters with love.
Stars include Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth and Keira Knightly. With all the stories there, I'm sure there's one story you can relate to.
Yes, probably too sappy for some of you but sometimes I just wanna watch movies without analyzing too much. And these are on top of my list!

I know have two photographers on my IT list... and while the other one is related to me, Paul Vincent is the other one. Hay, or maybe we just clicked. He understood that my fiance and I are two crazy people who wants uniqueness in our lives. Oh well, please bear with me. In a few weeks time it will all be over...

Me want a new camera. I think my Pentax needs a rest. I want a Canon Powershot camera. The model I want is not even very hi-tech. Just a simple point and shoot model good enough for a blogger like me. These are the two I've chosen...
Santa! *wish* *wish*!

Anyway... it's December 1 right now, which is 30 days from my wedding, which means I'm officially stressing out! This is why I don't diet. The stress alone is enough to make me lose weight. Seriously. Tried and tested. Just hope I don't lose too much weight or else my gown will fall off. And THAT is not a pretty site. So, we lost our weekends to errands and stuff already and even after work hours. Sigh! Struggle for someone who loves to sleep. But really excited coz I'm counting down the days til our house becomes a complete bedlam with relatives arriving from all over the world.
The other night my mom was throwing questions, asking checklist and who should do what... waaaahhh! I just scribbled everything in my wedding notebook. Deal with it later... like tonight...
Tini had his measurements taken yesterday. He's wearing a tuxedo. We were betting on his waistline. Hah! I won! Won't mention it anymore, he might back out from the wedding. Hehe.
Oh, oh! Other than getting married and having house renovated, another big change might be coming soon. I'm sort of excited about it but worried as well. Nope, not preggers! Haha! I'll know all the details by Tuesday. Wish me luck!

shine in silver and gold
I think someone's in trouble again... sigh! As usual I asked MOA branch to text me as soon as they come in.
I hope they do!
Anyway, let me share you some styles we saw...
Fresh in Carmine Red
Trend in Red
I checked All Flip Flops in MOA and they have most of these styles already. I got our pair in one of their newest branches, Greenbelt 5. They also opened in Trinoma. And heads up for the 2008 Christmas Limited Edition too! The salesperson said it will be arriving sometime next week.
Maybe you'd like to add these in your Christmas shopping list!
I wanted these too...

Yuck! Ugly feet! Blaming my years of dancing ballet!
Anyway, this post may be a few weeks old. I'm sure some of you saw this in the stores already but I just recently got my Schu ballet flats a few days ago. Maybe MOA is so far away for the delivery trucks, it took awhile for stocks to get there.
I really felt like a kid again with my pair of ballet shoes!
Glad I had somewhere to go to tonight... I'm building my whole wardrobe from feet up!
But sending a request to the universe... Ruby!!! Other colors please!!!

A brown bolero from Mimi at the Archeology wing of Powerplant Mall. I was looking for something to add to my brownish-bronze strapless bubble dress I wanted to wear for my friend's wedding yesterday. I saw this one and thought it would be a great addition to my outfit but I changed my mind on what to wear.
Oh, got a text from Schu that my ballet flats are ready for pick up. I guess that's my lunch-errand on Monday.
What about you? Why don't you share your recent buys?

Fast forward to 2008, look what they have displayed in their store! Colorful DM’s! Lovely! It definitely brings me back to my high school days!
They also have printed ones.
At my age I’m wondering how I can pull this off without looking like I’m trying too hard.
My fiancé said this was part of his wardrobe in college complete with long hair!

burgundy mary janes and white wedge
The same night I had dinner at Galleria and passed by Schu again just in case I'd find something I like. they don't have my size anymore in some styles I wanted. Now I wonder if that was a good thing for me. Haha! I kept my choices conservative coz I'm thinking of doing the "naughty librarian" look with these shoes.
I'm also waiting for my pink ballet flats. It's for a good cause. 15% of it goes to the I Can Serve Foundation. I heard it's available in some branches already but I'm waiting for mine to arrive at their MOA branch. Sigh! Patience is a virtue.

Havies addicts like me... go run to your favorite ALL FLIP FLOPS branch and grab your Havies now. Sale runs from October 31 to November 30, 2007.
Warning though, I had a hard time looking for size 35/36... went home empty handed. Huhuhu! Hope your luckier than me.

I moved into the ground floor guest room because my bedroom will be renovated to accommodate the newlyweds (us! us!) by end of December. I'm just halfway done moving my stuff but our maids put my bedsheets on the other room already I didn't have a choice but to sleep there last night.
Waaah! It was horrible!
First of all, the cable in that room is Destiny. I miss my Lifestyle channel! And it's still kinda musty. It's not regulary used, hence the smell. Then our household pests (Ratatouille!!!) were extra noisy. They were in the ceiling outside the room but I could still hear them. I'm also a scardy-cat... I hate being alone downstairs.
Sigh! The sacrifices I have to endure! Just two months! Two months of this then I'm back in my own room... with my hubby beside me. Hehehe! Sigh!
I'm stressed out. I need a massage.

Marc Jacobs and Richard Prince team up for some quirky LV designs.
Put it this way... if you're bored you can just read your bag...
For those Harry Potter fanatics, you have heard about the speculations going around the Potter fansites that Prof. Dumbledore was gay.
Finally, J.K. Rowling puts all the rumors to rest by outing Prof. Dumbledore. She admits that he is actually gay! During her stop at Carnegie Hall in NY for her book tour, she was asked who was the headmaster's true love. She answered, "Dumbledore is gay".
She explained that he had a thing for Gellert Grindelwald, remember his rival wizard in the 7th book? She also goes on saying that "Dumbledore's love was his great tragedy"
I don't know if Dumbledor would appreciated being outed by his creator but I have no qualms accepting his sexuality. Teehee...

I got another pair of Viktor jeans and this time in white!
I went to Viktor in Podium to have my pair repaired. No biggie, just lost a swarovski stud. Ino Caluza was there and I got a chance to chat with him. When he said that white should be THE third pair, I gave up the fight and got one. Just the basic with stitchings also done in white. I was planning to get one anyway after I bought two black tunic tops in Thailand that I knew, the moment I saw it, would go very well with a white Viktor.
It was a sign that Ino was there. It was meant to be. Oh, Ino was also such a nice guy! I mentioned I visit his blog and he said he has seen mine as well. I also mentioned to him about our family friends who convinced my mom to get jeans from him. I should tell Georgia I got another pair... *inggit*... teehee
Counting the days til I get my hands on my jeans! I'll tell my bro I need a pictorial with my Viktors!

Anyway, so I surfed the web and checked out what's hot on the red carpet. It was a wee bit disappointing for me. Or maybe they're reserving all the hot stuff for the Oscar's. See for yourself...
HEROES' Ali Larter sexy in red
Ghost Whisperer star Jennifer Love Hewitt in classic black
Gossip Girl narrator Kristen Bell in an age-appropriate blue gown
I'm not liking Ellen's dress but loving Portia De Rossi's dress, check the snake detail
Kimora Lee Simmon's in a jewel-tone dress... yummy!
HEROES' Hayden Paniattiere, fashion police hated her dress but I kinda like it...
