I love memo pads and notebooks. I always have a notepad and pen in my bag because you never know when inspiration will strike. It is also important for taking down notes because sometimes it is faster to write it down than type everything in the Notes feature of my phone. And of course it is always…

Krissy, writer.

It has a nice ring to it. don't you think so? :p

I have long been wanting to attend writing workshops but they rarely come by. There was one back in August, a 3 days and 2 nights workshop in Tagaytay held by Ms. Tara Sering, but I was not able to attend it because of self-esteem issues. I haven&…

My Achilles' heel

It's not a secret that I am totally addicted to shopping for clothes, shoes and other what-nots. I have an extensive collection of accessories, books, DVDs and other thingamajigs. I can quote movie lines without batting an eyelash.

But of course no one is perfect. I have an Achilles' heel,…

9 years to forever

Friends are sonot overrated.

Yesterday was the 9th anniversary of KKK or Kalokohan, Kabaliwan ng 5 Kababaihan. We've been friends since we were in elementary but only on that fateful day of October 26, 1999 did we come up with a name for our clique.

We've been through tears-inducing laugh tri…

I could wear this to my wedding.

This. This can literally take your breath away.

Anne Hathaway in the Venice premiere of her movie Rachel Getting Married

I love the cascading layers, the ruffles and the flowers. The colors blue, green and gray are also mixed and blended together in a very nice way. The gold shoes and accessories add…

Someone help me control my shopping! But then again, I hope no one will.

New shopping loot!

Havaianas Slim Chitao Amarelo Banana

I got this from Sis Beth. It was actually first released in blue but I did not like it that much. But when I saw this, whoah, I just HAD to have it. And now I do. Yay for me! Ü

And won't you just look at this cuff I got from Sis Clarise:

The purple one is better than the pink one, right?

I am planning on getting myself a new phone to replace the cheap one I'm using whose uses are limited to sending SMS and calling. I cannot even take a decent photo using its camera. I preferred a cheap phone after the trauma of last year when I lost twophones in just a span of two months. Talk …

Planning the year the chic way

Oh boy, time really flies fast when you're having fun! It feels like only yesterday when I welcomed 2008 and before I realized what's happening we're already on the last quarter of the year! And of course, a new year signals new beginnings (and new belongings ;)). It is now time to scou…

The ability to show love must always be part of the equation. Technology has not crossed that barrier. The day love dies will be the virtual end of the world.

- Stephen Spielberg Reader's Digest April 2006

quick quotes.1

A thousand pair of eyes may speak of overwhelming admiration over you and sometimes it could be flattering. Sometimes, it draws a smile on your face. But at the end of the day, no matter how many people express such adoration, you'd still want to be with that person who doesn't only see you…

Of teeth and rice

Yesterday Mich, Watcher and I went to Dentacare to use our company health plans and have our teeth cleaned. The dentist was nice; he does not look like a dentist at all, more like a rockstar. Ö
After that we then went to SM Fairview. It was actually only my 2nd visit to the said mall, the first was …

Saving Mother Earth one bag at a time

I was net-surfing when I chanced upon MamaEarth and I fell in love with their canvas bags straightaway! Following in the footsteps of the widely-accepted trend set by Anya Hindmarch's "I'm not a Plastic Bag", MamaEarth aims to do their share for Mother Earth and lessen the need fo…

Okay, okay. I give up.

I have succumbed to temptation. I cannot take this anymore. I have tried to get you off my mind but I can't. You keep on coming back, luring me, calling me. Oh how you taunt me so, sweet torture! I give up. You win. I am going to get you, Havaianas Fit! And maybe you too, Havaianas Jelly!

Now I …

This is what I want for Christmas!

Let the photo speak for itself...

Isn't she gorgeous?

A new camera! And it's pink! (Hmm, the pink gadget conspiracy has invaded cameras, indeed! ) It's the new Canon Powershot E1 my friends, which boasts of a 10.0 megapixel capture capacity, 4x digital zoom, and a 2.5-inch LCD screen. And…
