Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One

I put off writing a review of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One movie after I saw it at the premiere because I didn't want to spoil it for the other fans who've been anticipating it. This has been sitting in my Drafts for quite a while now but I haven't gotten around to…

A meeting three years in the making

After more or less three years of online friendship, I finally got to meet Regine in person. We met way back when my main blog was still my Multiply journal and when I have just started getting addicted to online shopping. She used to have an online shop and I bought a couple of accessories from he…

Today, I am thankful

... for my family. Theirs is a love that keeps on giving. The support they have shown and are showing every hour of my life has been outstanding. Really, words are not enough to express how grateful I am to God for giving them to me. It's true that we cannot choose the family we're born int…

Renewing my independence

I was supposed to be very busy today because I was due to move to my new apartment. I don't think I have blogged about it already, but through my good friend/ officemate Mich and her mom's help I was able to find a new apartment :) For months now I have been staying in my good friend and fo…

Esprit de Noel Bazaar + my gorgeous booties

With Christmas just around the corner, bazaars have started to pop up around the metro to offer one-stop shopping for the perpetually busy consumers. I am not perpetually busy per se, but I love going to bazaars because you are always bound to find something unique that you can't find at the ma…

With new hair comes new responsibilities.

Remember I told you a couple of posts ago that I would have something new today? Well I did get something new, but it was not really what I expected. Nevertheless I feel like I have made the right choice. Intrigued? Here comes the story :)
If you have been reading this blog for quite a while now y…

Whooga Ugg Boots Giveaway

This may sound very superficial of me, but one of my main frustrations of living in a tropical country is that we don't have winter here. It would be nice to have a white Christmas and experience making snow angels at least once, you know? And the winter clothes, of course! As much I would want…

37 hours of sugar rush

It's official: I have been awake for 37 hours now. I never imagined I would last this long without sleeping, but here I am, prolly running on sugar rush :D
Yesterday after work my teammates and I went to Green Nature in San Mateo, Rizal for our teambuilding. A couple of months ago we just ate ou…

Finally, a new wallet.

I've been wanting to get myself a new wallet ever since the awful robbing incident months ago but never found the will to do so. I don't know, maybe it's because I'm afraid it will just get stolen from me again, maybe I'm too stingy to part with my money (yeah, right), or maybe …

Premiere Night - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1

Don't worry, no spoilers! ;)
Last night is probably one of the most memorable nights of this month - nay, this year. I got to watch the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1 movie at the premiere night sponsored by Warner Bros. Pictures and Studio 23 THREE DAYS before the regular screening…

Shake it up and wake up the happiness, it's Christmas-time!

With all the bright fairy lights, colorful lanterns, gaily carols, generous gift-giving and over-all festive and merry mood, you can bet Christmas is my favorite time of the year! In the Philippines, it has been customary to start the Christmas countdown once the -ber months kick in. Don't be s…
