The Bride is sick

Yep... I knew it was going to happen sooner or later. I just wished sooner and not that close to the wedding. But last night I felt the familiar itch in my throat and I knew tonsilitis was just around the corner.

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.

Ink me bebeh!

More than a year ago, I got my very first tattoo. A triquetra sign on my lower back. It was relatively big in size. The pain was beyond what I was used to so I decided that it will probably take years till I get one again.

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.

Leave... Leave... Leave

My mind is elsewhere already. I'm giving myself two more days at work and then off to take my leave. I'm not functioning properly anymore anyway.

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!!!

The holidays are here and one of my favorite things to do is just stay in bed and have a movie marathon. I have two movies on my list.

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!

Clicking like crazy...

Oh gosh... sorry (specially to all my friends) for posting this again here when I've posted it in my two Multiply sites and emailed it to a gazillion people... it's just that I love, love, love our prenup pics to death!

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...

Shoot me bebeh!

I'm not a gadget person but I've never yearned for a camera before like I do now. Sniff...

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...

7.1 megapixel
4x optical zoon
2 AA batteries
powered by 2 AA batteries

5 megapixel
4x optical zoom
powered by 2 AA batteries

These are the only ones within my budget. I like the A550 because of the grip and it also looks sturdier and rugged. Plus the added pixels too. But I like the simplicity of the A460. Okay, I like the colors too... I want one in red or blue. But because of the wedding I don't want to spend money on the cameras yet. Sigh! It would be lovely taking pics this holiday with any of these two.

Santa! *wish* *wish*!

NON-Fashion Ramblings

Blah about the coup attempt. Nothing more to say than grrrr! Been to three weddings in Manila Pen and it's a shame they destroyed it.

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!
