Train of Thought Series Part 4: It's all in the Mind

I've tricked my mind into believing that whatever it believes in is normal. 

Inspired

In some days, I doodle. I'm not gifted with any skills in drawing but still, I try to draw. This has been one of my sketches made into reality.

It's just not so obvious in the pictures but the hemline of this gown is fairy - inspired. It's meant not to have the same length. As for the train, it's about 14 inches long.

Thanks to Tintin's royal themed debut, I had somewhere appropriate to wear another of my designs. Feeling designer diba! Hahaha. But if you'd ask me if I'm serious about all these designing and stuff, I'm not. I sketch only when I'm inspired.

As soon as the others saw Lina and I, they asked if we talked about what we were wearing. We turned up in another matchy - matchy outfit.

I hope you liked what I wore :)

Thanks to Sam Pingol for the awesome pictures

See you, guys after our one week term break!

Thanks, Hannah, for having your party in my favorite mall of all time (Remember my post on The Podium? If not, click HERE) which is somewhere near my place instead of booking for a place near South. I truly appreciated it. Belated Happy Birthday, sister :)

It keeps on flowing

When I said that I'm not used to going to the cemetery, I wasn't kidding. I haven't experienced death in the family until my grandfather from the father side passed away last February 2009. On December of the following year, my great grandfather, Amama, joined him. And just last night, my mommy arrived home, sullen faced. Her father, my Lolo Felix Valle, died because of heart attack. My mom just sat down beside me then all of a sudden, her tears came falling down. I didn't know what words to say nor did I know what i can give mom just to appease her so I settled to just staying by her side, listening to her random rambles. LB, as how my brothers and I call Lolo Felix, passed away at a young age. He was even outlived my his mom, my great grandma Inana. Weird enough, LB's death coincided with Inana's 84th birthday.

Death in the family is slowly becoming familiar with me. It's creeping its way into the barrier of youth our family has. I just wish, fervently wish, that none of my grandmas would succumb to the lifetime slumber just yet. I know for sure life would completely be different should this fear of mine happen.

I do not want to leave you guys hanging but I've to beg off from all my blogging duties for the coming 3 days. Please also pray for my mom, she being the eldest child, that she may have the strength to decide on what's best for everyone concerned.

I'm not really a fan of lipstick. But this shade from MAC is another exception. The other one is here.

Is it just me or is it because of Olive and Pop-eye that I felt as if I looked cruise - ready again? Or probably, I'm wishing to go on a cruise once more. Hmm, how does a Mediterranean cruise sound to you? Someday... :)

My Most Frequent Visitors

After not seeing them for more than 5 months, they finally visited me again. Remember Janica Barrera and Yna Reyes?

Belated happy birthday to that one person who knows me, from A - Z. You know how much you mean to me, Tin.

Will be uploading my outfit shots before this week is up. 
NOTE: My friends and I are not going to Dolce Latte on tuesday to serve. We'll be there next week. I'll update you as soon as my finals week is over. Thanks!

Happy Birthday, Hannah!

HAPPY HAPPY 18th BIRTHDAY TO OUR SISTER HANNAH DAR JUAN!
- Gellie and Lina

Photobucket

And since it's your special day, we thought hard of our messages for you. Here's Lina's song:

Happy birthday to you
You belong in the zoo
With the monkeys and Deborah
the gorilla is you.
Happy birthday, Hannah!
- xoxo, you know you love me. gossipgirl

And here's my haiku for you:

Hannah banana,
making Lina and I smile,
making others cry.
- super awesome G

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

If you want to have a wonderful dining experience, I suggest you go to Dolce Latte. With its tasteful interior design, mouthwatering desserts, succulent meals, and friendly servers, it's definitely a must try.

Located at 1616 Quezon Avenue, South Triangle, Quezon City, 1103 Philippines. Visit their website here: http://www.dolcelatte.ph/index.html

Hannah's best friend Anne Eugenio, who I eventually became good friends with (Hi Anne! FC din ako :>), treated us in their family owned restaurant/ coffee shop/ perfect chill place.

Foods we ate: clockwise: Gambas Al Ajillo, Salmon Alfredo, Quattro Formaggio Pizza, Italian Style Chicken Kebab, Beef and Cheese Cannoli

I was having a migraine that time so I opted for something hot. Look at those empty plates

Oh! We'll be there next week tuesday again. Not as customers but as the servers. So drop by around 1PM - 4PM that day and say hi. Just go there and tell us you've read this post and we'll give you a complimentary drink of your choice, if you come during our "shift". We hope to see you there :)

Thanks to Anne Eugenio for the pictures, for the title of this post, for the medicine and for the very very generous treat.

 Back then, the only problems I had to decide on were where I'll study in college and what course I'll take up. Now, I'm forced to grow up real fast, making decision after decision. Ever heard of the saying, "Grows old but never up"?

... And a lot of promises.

My First Marketing Party

Last year, I attended only two Accountancy parties which you can see here and here. Now, since I've moved to a different department, I'm experiencing new sets of parties. I'm rarely allowed to go out and party until dawn, I'm sure I've somehow made that obvious already. Okay except for cases like birthday parties and parties thrown by the orgs I join in. So when I'm out, I try to make the most out of it. I was in Amber in The Fort last Saturday night with my friends Karen and Lina. Say and Marga were there too. Hannah was supposed to be with me as well but due to some conflicts in her schedule, she decided to let this night pass. So anyway... Here are the few snapshots I was able to score.

L-R: Say, Karen, me, Lina and Marga

When I was on my way home with Karen already, I was adjusting my top when I thought I could wear it this way - shoulder slits. Hmm. Now I know how to wear it next time :)
I'm going to make a separate post on what I wore some other time.
