Where in the World?!

Arrived here at St. Louis last Friday. I was thinking our pocket money would be enough for us since St. Louis didn't offer that much in terms of shopping.

Gadammit I was wrong!

1 Cole Haan black heels
1 Coach silver sneakers
1 BCBG brown sandal wedges
1 Steve Madden gold sandals

...and that's just shoes...


Oh, and finally got a new camera. It's waterproof and I'm excited to try it in water.

Nobody But You!

Yes, more video posts. I've been missing out on stuff because I'm busy packing and getting ready for our quick vacation to the US for a cousin's wedding. It's our little family's first time to travel sans the yaya and everybody else. I'm worried about my little boy being comfortable throughout the trip. And also scared that we won't be able to handle our little brat. Oh, he is a brat. An adorable one, but still a brat. Just like his mom! Haha!

So, been posting lots of videos because I don't get to go anywhere and do anything else. Just t.v. This has been amusing me for the past weeks now.

I've learned the dance... I think I do it better than these thingamajigs...


To Greenwhich and Publicis JimenezBasic... hats off to you to these funny, unique and endearing ads!

Grabe, sobrang cheeeessssyyy talaga!!!

...And this is our favorite...syempre it's with Chris Tiu!

I saw THE sign

It was one of those days when I just wanted to be alone and escape office for an hour or so... then, I saw this sign in Greenbelt 5.

Opening Fall of 2009

I have time to save up for a pair of flats. But since I'm an impatient cow... maybe I can convince my mom to look for a pair in SFO.

Wish us luck.

The Things You Say

I find him crass when he talks to the audience and his staff. This is no different. I think ABS-CBN was partly at fault here. Instead of feeds like this, they should have just done a newsbreak, or totally not do Wowowee altogether.

But Willie said all the wrong things, the wrong way.

Ayan, galit na naman mga tao sayo.

Our helpers are watching Wowowee with Willie nowhere in sight. Suspended na sya?!

I was there...

I am not apathetic after all...

I was too young to understand what was happening in 1986. I knew something was going on and there was a bad president fleeing the country, but I couldn't grasp the intensity of the situation. Now, I'm glad I was part of this.

I'm a MOH!!!

I'm so excited I'll be a matron of honor for my cousin this end of the month in the US! The whole family is flying to Illinois, including our baby boy. My cousin said he'll be the ring bearer... how we'll do that when he's just 8months old, I dunno. Maybe just decorate his stroller and let his dad push it. Haha!

So, she emailed the color for me and the bridesmaids. Watermelon. Well, if orange is a color, why not watermelon. It's between red and pink. Since I am the MOH and my cousin gave me freehand to choose the style of my gown with just two instructions: don't wear halter, that's for the bridesmaids; wear long gown. I went through my magazine stash for some inspiration.

I wanted a design different from the off-the-rack styles in bridal shops in the US. I fell in love with these two designs.

Jerome Lorico on Lea Salonga for Metro Magazine

Charina Sarte on Bea Soriano for Members Only Fashion Series event

I love the Grecian style. This was even my inspiration for my own wedding... well, for the entourage at least. I'm hoping our designer can make it work. I'm excited! I hope my BFF gets married soon... I wanna plan a wedding again!

What's the opposite of "chick flick"?!

My husband is such a fan of history so when Public Enemies came out, he told me he wanted to watch it. I hate "man movies", or whatever you call the opposite of chick flick... but because he would sit through Confessions of a Shopaholic and Devil Wears Prada with me just because he loves me... I just had to say "yes". Johnny Depp stars in it so, what the heck! Last Friday night we went to Powerplant to watch it.

Did I enjoy the movie??? Lemme put it this way... I enjoyed Johnny Depp. He's the only one that kept me on my sit awake.

The next day I was with girlfriends and we watch The Proposal. Aside from the fashionable bags and shoes Sandra Bullock was wearing, Ryan Reynolds was sizzling hottt!!! The plot was ok and not overly cheesy... thank God! But I was drooling over Ryan Reynolds!!! Omigosh!!! And he did take his shirt off just to make girls like me super happy! Oh, but for the boys, Sandra was more than half naked there too...and her body looked fab too.

There's a nice post at i am shallow on the movie... nice read.

Next week it's G.I. Joe... and now you know... and knowing is half the battle...

Mother of Philippines Democracy: Corazon "Cory" Aquino (1933-2009)

I believe there's is no other Philippine president that is most beloved and most admired.

I will wear yellow today.
