I Wish I Knew Better…Nevermind…

Oftentimes, I feel like, I do not know many things that I find myself dumb if not naive or just plain stupid… But there are times as well, when I wish I can preserve ignorance to save me from paranoia, disappointment and/or pain…

Nowadays, when everything can be “googled”, everyone has their “say” to everything, making themselves appearing like a “guru” or “the authority”, when in fact, their opinion was only in unison to some “domineering persona” / a celebrity? Or famous names to a certain crowd.

Honestly, do we really need to have an opinion on everything?

I think it’s better to stay mum and be fatuous… specially when it doesn’t concern me. Besides, I realized the more you open your mouth, the more that the air tends to get inside your head… that must explain why some forget to keep themselves grounded.

Vintage Vibe

I had the privilege to work on my “kikay” side about two weeks ago. Well, I must have mentioned before how I love doing make-ups mostly because of the satisfaction it brings to my little artistic nature.

Most girls, whether they admit it or not have their own dose of insecurities, and for me, make up is one of the tools I use to conceal if not alleviate that creepy monster. It’s flexible enough to serve me an instant oomph of confidence even if I’m plump – since fashion clothes sizing aren’t really that friendly with me.

Anyway, so much of the prologue, let me get into the details. My friend Aiza, attended their company’s annual dinner & dance – vintage theme, prior to the event, I accompanied her in searching for an outfit with these photos in mind as inspiration.

She ended up scoring a dress and shoes both from Promod.

I was excited to wear my “Ricky Reyes Hat” on the day of the event and make use of my humble resources.

It was a very fulfilling day for me, it even made me happier to make my friend feel extra fabulous on her event. Again, thanks Aiza for believing I’d deliver justice. haha!

Don’t you think we both deserve a double thumbs-up here? 🙂 Cheers!!!

Looking UP For The Rainbow

I was almost on the verge  of writing another cynical discourse when I came to read this: “Don’t Let Gravity Keep You Down” It’s an outfit post, but the title alone gave me some tuning up to improve my mood.

Anyway, I am not feeling healthy lately and that’s vacuuming out the pleasant atmosphere away from me not to add the paranoia that goes along with it. So I’d often opt to stay “solo” in my already autistic world to keep myself from spreading negativity.

Sometimes, I can’t help but think, that dreams were created to allow you to escape from the reality for awhile, where the hope can not be doubted and the zest for life is not easily dampened.

I just feel discomposed… this too shall pass… let it be over soon…

The weather might be a bit off today, but I am still looking forward to tomorrow’s shine…

Jaded Prole

Hello molds and mildews! This isn’t probably the best entry to spark up this page again… but i needed this venue to release my exasperation.

I’m not really in my usual elements right now, the “little miss optimistic me” is gone wandering… finding her way back to the norm.

Have you ever felt uninspired by the same reason that gives you the sense of worthiness? That’s where I feel I am at this moment and it feels like a vicious cycle…

Please don’t get me wrong… I am still very much grateful to everything…. but can I just say I’m tired? frustrated? worried? Uncertainties have its way of  knocking out my steadiness – causing a frantic activity with my cerebrum.

Sleeping is the means to escape while isolation justifies the lonesome…

I’ll park from this nonsense by quoting a line from a song…

 “It may sound absurd, but don’t be naive, even heroes have the right to bleed…”

First Quarter Wrap Up

Yes… Parting is in the bag. A timely transition brought by inertia. It’s a cliché to say that Life is but a constant change, but it truly is.  Sometimes, a mallet is required to break a mature egg when it doesn’t hatches on its own. A bit of a rough resort, but it’ could be as serious as saving a pullet.

A new leaf is budding green… Thank God for the APPROVAL today. It’s still early to celebrate Easter Sunday, but I’m a jumpy happy egg already. 🙂

How Much For A Ring?

I must be really cheap or maybe not really fond of expensive stuff. As for me, the amount of money spent does not equate to its value or worth.

 
A guy friend asked me about my opinion on how much budget should he allocate for an engagement ring. Well, I supposed he’s planning to propose to his long-time girlfriend soon which is totally exciting! He was asking whether $1K (SGD) would be decent, and I told him, I’m fine even below $500(I can go as low as $100 as long as it won’t tarnish? Meron bang ganun? Haha! ) I feel I wasn’t the best person to asked, because personally, I don’t require an expensive ring. I’m more into the genunity of the intention and the gesture. Based on the amount he’s looking at, I just gave him 2 thumbs up and a gigglish wish of good luck.


Isn’t it nice to know couples who are on the verge of settling down and still believes in the sanctity of marriage, despite of everyone’s turning cynical?

If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it
If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it
Don’t be mad once you see that he want it
If you liked it then you shoulda put a ring on it

Dont Want To Leave Empty

Bonjour and Adieu Fevrier…

My only entry for this month. it’s been a month full of love, as i was able to spend a week with my family back in the Philippines. Although, vacations for me are always never enough to catch up for the times I missed, still, it’s an immeasurable joy to be with people i love so much and never ceases to make me feel loved all the time.

I honestly don’t know what to share right now, I still havent gathered my thoughts to write something less insensible. Maybe soon, hopefully I’ll get to score a very very cheap netbook. I left my laptop back home and I’m squeezing an entry in between calls while I’m at work. Shhhh….

Since today falls also on a leap day, let’s enjoy the extra day we have and always a grateful heart! 🙂
