I'm Waiting for You, Legolas

My doctors have released my medical certificate and have allowed me to attend my classes in school already. They held me prisoner in my own home for good two days. Haha! So since I'm okay already, the first place that I wanted to visit was the mall, particularly the movie house. With my mom, brother Gio, Lola Ester and Tito Ian, I was in Shang yesterday.

I still have nasty looking bruises all over my right arm and a few parts of my legs so I guess I'll be wearing long sleeved tops for the entire week.

I'm half way to finishing Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. I wonder, how come I've only seen the Lord of the Rings trilogy on cable TV once? It feels as if I'm waiting forever for them to be shown again.

One Week Of Rest

Oh my! I have a lot of catching up to do. A lot. Seriously. But first things first. For some reason, I didn't want to go around telling everyone that I was confined in the hospital and was only given permission to leave earlier this afternoon because I found it so tedious. My doctor said I needed rest so I cut my social connection during the week. I appreciated all the effort, love, and concern that came pouring in and the supposed visits but like what I said, I had to rest. Besides, I'm sure you wouldn't have liked my appearance. Perhaps because of the dextrose, my cheeks got so bloated, my eyes were so puffy, and my arms were red all over. I wasn't such a sight to behold. Haha! 8 bottles of dextrose and daily blood extraction later, I'm up and kicking again.

I Get Sick Once A Year, Only Once

As I am writing this down, I'm wearing a cool fever on my forehead, and my kuya, who's just a few feet away from me, is also wearing one. When I woke up this day, I wasn't feeling well already but because I've a class every Saturday, I willed myself to get up and ready for school. In the middle of my class, my fever probably went a temperature higher, making my eyes sting so bad. I knew I will end up collapsing in the room if I stayed a little longer so I had to leave. I wasn't even able to text anyone at home to fetch me because all I was thinking was to go home at the soonest possible time. I asked the guard to hail a cab for me. The other students who were looking for cabs were gracious enough to allow me to go first.

Oh, thanks for taking my photos for today, Lina :)

The Balance of Nature

One principle I greatly believe in is that, everything is fair in this world. That when you're good here, you can't be that good in another department. That when you get something akin to perfect now, after a few days, karma's going to fuck you up. See, you can't have it all. Always, you'll have something that will make you less perfect and more human. And always, you'll meet some people who are better than you; just the same, you'll meet a person or two who'll think that you epitomize the person whom they wish they can be. I think this is how everything is supposed to be. Fair and square. 

I was in school last 12 September when Ms. Universe 2011 took place. But thank God for the internet connection (read: wifi) in all our buildings in school, we got the result as soon as it was out. I felt really proud of the country's representative, in fact I am one of the proud kababayans of Ms. Philippines. More than being Ms. Universe 2011 3rd runner up, I'm more at awe with her academic accomplishments. She didn't just pass the board exam in Architecture, she nailed it! She graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of the Philippines, topped the Architecture board exam, and bagged 4th place in Ms. Universe. 

What ever happened to the balance of nature?

Lady Dog

I'm re-posting these photos because first, I miss the beach and second, because me and my dog Miu Miu are no longer inseparable. She has left our house in Manila already.

I've Only Just Begun

I've just finished the first week of my term and to motivate me to do better than the previous ones, I had an eat-all-you-can lunch the weekend that followed, just like last term's. (If you can't remember the post, click HERE). I have classes from monday to saturday now. But no worries cause I think I can quite handle this schedule. Just wish me luck, that I won't get caught should I be late.

So for our family's day out last sunday, I wore the skirt I wore HERE as a dress and cinched it on the waist then finished with a blazer. Do I look like a serious student now or what? :)

Back to the 80s

Here's the outfit that didn't make it. Hahaha! My cousin Rayne celebrated her 3rd birthday last 5 September and I was supposed to wear something very colorful and young - looking. I instantly thought of Sex and the City's Back to the 80s. The 60s, 70s and the 80s are the eras I wish I've tried to live in. Just imagine all the crazy and creative fashion back then...

But of course at the last minute, I had to change into something more normal, because for some reason, Rayne's party didn't turn out as bongga as last year's. I'm just waiting for my cousin to upload the pictures to show you my very simple alternative to this.

Sometimes when I wake up, I feel like the world's too big for me. So big that it could swallow me whole, along with my thoughts and dreams.

It Marks the Start

It was the  first day of my 5th term in college yesterday and though I promised myself not to wear heels in school anymore, unless special occasions would call for it, I ended up wearing heels. Why? Because I was supposed to meet with my future business partner. Yup, business as in money business. It's just that, at the last minute, I got held up in Taft because I ran an errand for my younger brother. He's going to be in college by next year. I'm helping him sort out all the requirements asked of the universities in Taft.

The Photoshoot in the Airplane

I was browsing some Multiply sites because I needed ideas on a project that I'm currently working on. I'll let you guys in on the details once everything is final. So anyway, as I was browsing, I came across this site and a little click here and there, I saw my friend Lina's pre - debut photoshoot.

Barefooted

I've just returned in Manila after a few days stay in Quezon province where we held my grandfather's wake and burial. In between helping serve the food and drinks to those who mourned with the family, I went to the big grassy area right in front of our house to just think and talk. My stay in the province opened my eyes to what really happened, is happening and about to happen in the family. It turned out, there are a whole lot of things that were kept secret and are now being uncovered.

Orange Punch

Orange is the color of the brave souls. Not everyone likes this color, not even everyone can tolerate seeing it. I, a believer of the good side of all things, find joy in trying out this color.

I visited one of my favorite stores of all time, Bobon By Puey Quinones. I chanced upon this 3 - layered umbrella and I knew I had to take a picture with it.

When I saw this picture on facebook, I started laughing. Like what the comments said, this was taken by the owner of Hacienda Escudero himself, the resort where we were staying then. In my defense, I didn't know he was the owner until one of his crews approached him and told him that the board members were already waiting for him. You could just imagine how embarrassed I was, considering that I asked him to take my picture not just once. But since everything had been said and done, what else could I do but smile my way out.

I'm currently finishing Gregory Maguire's Son of A Witch. It's by far the most thought - provoking book I've read. I hope its conclusion won't disappoint.
