It's kinda hard to celebrate my birthday this year because all people remember is Ondoy. But still thankful that my family and friends are all safe and healthy. Even those not here in the Philippines. I'm most especially thankful for my wonderful husband and son. They make my life more meaningful.
Thanks to all those who remembered. By the way, haven't forgotten that I promised a birthday blog blowout...

For the 50th Anniversary of St. Scholastica, Swatch comes out with a commemorative watch. It bears our school motto "Ora et Labora", which means pray and work.
For reservations, visit any Swatch store. Limited supply only so, let's go kulasas!

I'm kinda dreading my birthday this year. Just don't wanna be THIS old. But then again, I should be thankful and rejoice that I'm still blessed.
So, wanna share my blessings! I've been doing this blog for more than five years already. Maybe it's time for a birthday blowout!
And I'm wondering how many do actually read all the sh*t I write... haha!
Will have to think what to give and since I don't really have sponsors, this will all come from my heart and pocket.
Look what I got in the mail...
I wonder if they'll put Settler's of Catan on sale...

Sept. 4, I went to my grade 6 class reunion. There weren't many of us since many were abroad and it was quite a short notice. But for those who came, it was super fun! We reminisced and tried to update each other with our lives.
6-Patriotic 1990-1991 with moderator Mrs. Malong ('better world' pose)
still looking young!
Our class is pretty close and even had more reunions than our high school classes. I know the other classes will disagree but we're almost the "A" section. After all, the batch valedictorian and salutatorian came from our class.
We're hoping to do another reunion soon with more girls joining us.

Been reading tweets about this for a couple of weeks already. Now it's official!
H&M continues its collaboration with top fashion designers. This time with Lanvin! With their artistic director Alber Elbaz at the helm, this will be a definite success.
H&M to collaborate with Lanvin
Fast-fashion retailer H&M is collaborating with fashion house Lanvin for a fall collection. Designed by Lanvin’s artistic director Alber Elbaz and menswear designer Lucas Ossendrijver, the collection will go on sale in about 200 H&M stores, launching Nov. 20 in North America and Nov. 23 elsewhere.
“H&M approached us to collaborate and see if we could translate the dream we created at Lanvin to a wider audience, not just a dress for less. I have said in the past that I would never do a mass-market collection, but what intrigued me was the idea of H&M going luxury rather than Lanvin going public,” Elbaz said.
The collection of womenswear and menswear will “bring to H&M a luxurious French tradition that is also modern and playful,” said Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor at H&M. “It is very much a Lanvin collection, using their cut and tailoring, with lots of focus on form and details for both women and men.”
Lanvin is the latest brand to collaborate with H&M, with previous collections designed by Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney and Comme des Garçons.
The Lanvin for H&M collection will be revealed through a film that will be launched Nov. 2 at http://www.hm.com/.
