My bestfriend surprised me with a hotel suite stay this weekend after a grueling one-day culinary class. Don't you love it when people you adore indulges you in the very thing that you want? Maybe that's why we are bestfriends. Taken at my hotel room and I must say, the lighting on the bathroom looks great (right pic) hihi.

Reworked vintage

Jan 21, 2010

I feel sad when I see vintage dresses on the bargain bin whenever I go thrifting. So I buy some of them and wear them as it is or have it "tweaked" a bit by reworking. This is one of them:

I wore it with a cameo pendant necklace. I have quite a collection of them and I think of them as very romantic pieces of jewelry.

And it looked like this before getting reworked:

Small Town Fiesta

Jan 17, 2010

The best thing about living in a small town is that things are utterly simple. I can walk for 5 minutes and I get to the town center already and almost everybody knows everyone. Every January is the celebration of our Fiesta in honor of our Patron Saint, St. Anthony of Abbot. And since one of the chief products of our locale is the ubiquitous vegetable, eggplant or "talong" in Filipino, the Mayor created, albeitly double entendre, created the "Talong Festival". Now, I must tell you there are no eggplants pictured haha, just some images of a small town fiesta like ours.

I love thrilling rides and this is probably the most thrilling ride in the whole of "perya" or fiesta. Since none of my companions will ride with me, I asked my dad, who lives thrilling rides himself, to go with me. Isn't he sweet? And the best thing about it is that the ride only cost Php 20/pax.

Cute balloons. I bought a Hello Kitty and gave my dogs a scare hihi.
