manic monday

♪♫"Just another manic monday.. wish it were a Sunday"♬♩

I always think about that song every time Monday rolls around. I also have a song for Friday's (not Rebecca Black's song) which I shall share to you guys on a Friday ;)

This shirt I've had for about 3 years already, and I totally forgot about it until one day when I was cleaning my closet. Crazy but sometimes you find interesting things at the back of your closet :)

When I found out about this, I went crazy! Imagine, Donatella Versace teaming up with H&M? A little piece of heaven just within reach!! I was able to see the collection of Lanvin x H&M in Beijing and scored myself a dress! I wonder if I could somehow plan a trip that would coincide with the release of the Versace collection? :)

just a little too much

Thank God for holidays! Although we haven't been having a lot of that lately since we switched Presidents, I'm looking forward to maybe possibly more non-working holidays in the future! :)

Watched Green Lantern with the fam and I loved it. Am I the only one who loves it though?? Because everyone else is saying that it's not that good and there are a lot of bad reviews about it. But I love it!!!!! Haha. I don't care what other people say. 

I really love this top I got a few months ago from H&M. I love it so much that I rarely wear it!! It just looks so classy and simple but makes you feel sexy at the same time :)

Dad's Day

Celebrated Father's day with the usual trip to the mall and dinner afterwards. It rained so hard that afternoon!! Good thing it stopped when it came to around dinner time.

Be thankful for your fathers and all that they've done for you :)

Ode to Fathers

There are 3 very special and important "fathers" in my life. I depend on them a lot and I cannot imagine my life without them.

1. GOD - He is and always will be my Heavenly Father and the most important person in my life. Without Him, I would not exist. I would not have been saved, I would not make it through to eternity. He sacrificed His only Son for the redemption of my sins. I am not worthy, but I am thankful that God chose me to be part of His family and I will be forever grateful.

2. My dad - Of course, he is the other person who gave me life. If it wasn't for him and my mom, I probably would not be here now. He has worked so hard to provide me and my sister a wonderful life. The best life, really. Being able to travel every year, and not worrying about anything. We are truly blessed.

3. My grandpa - Although he may not be with us physically to celebrate Father's Day, he will always be in our hearts. We miss him terribly, and I think about him every day ever since he passed away last December :( He was a very important person in my life and he influenced me greatly in every way possible. He taught me how to have good personal relations with people I meet, he taught me how to turn on the car :), he taught me a lot of things that I probably don't remember right now. But he loved us dearly and I just wish I got to say goodbye :(

Happy Father's Day to the 3 most important men in my life! And to my future husband too, if he does exist. :) ♥

i just came to say hello

Went to Manila for a day to accompany my dad to his doctor's appointment. He has this thing called a crumpled retina and we really do not know what the cure for this is :(

I missed my friend's wedding because somehow we got our dates wrong and the date I saved was today instead of yesterday! Really sorry Tin for not being able to attend. But, truth be told, I wouldn't change a thing. I met up with my Beijing friends yesterday and I had so much fun just hanging out with them. I didn't realize that I missed them that much until I saw them again. *sigh* It's times and days like those when I really wish I was in Manila.

Sole Service Manila

Sole Service Manila (owned by my friends - Eleanor Ong, Raychelle Tan and Aren Pe) has just recently launched their own website!

They started in 2010 on faceboook, like many of the online sellers out there. They came out with the colorful plimsolls during the summer of 2010 and I think everyone just went crazy for them! Aside from being affordable, they were cute, fun and stylish as well!

Then they started participating in bazaars and the number of fans and friend requests on facebook just kept on coming!

Home page

Women's shoes
Look at all the designs they now carry! Definitely a shopper's paradise!!

The men's page looks great too! Their site could easily compare to any of those international websites out there! They obviously put a lot of hard work and effort in making this possible.

So now there are no more pre-order periods because everything is in stock! What are you waiting for? Check them out at Sole Service now!

something unexpected

Slept over during the weekend and had a fab time celebrating our friend's bachelorette party! She's getting married next week but unfortunately I won't be able to attend! 

We headed over to the beach and just spent the day swimming, sleeping, eating and watching tv! 

Me, She, Cam, Tin (the bride to be)

cute cup cakes!

You know that moment when you remember something that happened and it made you smile, or suddenly laugh out loud even? - priceless. ♥

That love story

You know the one? That epic love story which never got an ending, just thoughts of what might could have been if only it had a chance.♥ ©

Lately I've been musing over a certain something that happened a few months ago. I keep thinking of what happened, and what might have been. I think we all have that kind of love story that somehow had a beginning, but never got the chance to end. It just.. stopped, as if 2 people didn't share something at all. And that's just sad because you end up with thoughts of "what if."

What if we got together, would we have been happy? Would we survive the long distance? Would our differences matter? Or would love conquer it all and make it worth it?

aaahhh, love. ♥

Beijing - An Introduction (The Places)

As you may or may not know, I lived in Beijing, China from September 10, 2010 until January 28, 2011 to pursue Chinese studies. I know I've blogged a little bit about my trip while I was there, but I wasn't able to do it any justice because I was so busy all the time and I didn't really have the time to stop and just write about everything that was going on in my life. So, I hope you bear with me now as I introduce to you properly my life and experiences in Beijing! Enjoy you guys :D (Be prepared, there will be a LOT of blog posts about Beijing. lol)

The Village Mall in San Li Tun (三里屯)

Joy City located in Xi Dan - (Reportedly) The biggest mall in Beijing 

Gate 8 Mall in Zhong Guan Cun which is beside another great mall

i love how it lights up at night :)

Summer Palace

Forbidden City

National Museum

Snippets, really, of the places you could go to in Beijing. There are just so many great places that you could go, no limit! You just take the subway and you can go where ever your heart desires ♥
