Stressed. Depressed. But well-dressed.

15 August 2012

Stressed.

Today is only my third day with Team ARC but I already got to assist in a major event: the Grand Launch of Lucky Chinatown in Binondo, Manila! I must say there is a huge difference between when I'm part of the team behind the scenes and the times when I am one of the invited guests! Nevertheless it was a successful and very well-attended event graced by the presence of the President of the Philippines, Noynoy Aquino. We also had a press lunch after the program where we enjoyed authentic Chinese food at King Chef restaurant. Too bad I got too busy that I wasn't able to take photos even though I brought my camera with me. It would've been great if I can give you a virtual tour around this new upscale mall in the heart of Binondo as it looks really nice and posh.

I am happy with my current job. Unlike before that I get bored just reading The Daily Mail while waiting for calls, hours fly so fast this time. I only have a problem with getting to and from work. Yesterday, I decided to take a risk and try a different route to see if I can lessen the 20-minute walk I need to do if I come from Ayala, and guess what. I got lost. Big inner GPS fail. I still get panic attacks when I see the number of people I need to beat for public transport to get to the office and go back home, but I manage better this time. Good thing my boss agreed for me to work 8AM-5PM (unless we have an evening event) so I can beat the rush hour. 

I'm stressed, yes, but it's a good kind of stress.

Depressed.

Do you believe in the idea of having a "love of one's life"? Like, have you ever felt like someone is the love of your life and did you tell him or her? The bitter realization that I let something great go has manifested itself today more than ever. I've been feeling weepy for the past two days - more so today - but there's really nothing much I can do about it anymore. I think I've already done my part, and if nothing happens, then so be it. I just can't help but feel really sad.

But well-dressed.

As requested, I wore a business-chic outfit today. I can't post an outfit shot though because I didn't have anyone to take my photo and I was too shy to ask other people *sad face*. Anyway, after the event, press lunch, and a quick debriefing, I got the chance to walk around Lucky Chinatown a bit. I felt brave because Divisoria is just one jeepney ride away and I used to take the same route every day for four years back in college. 

I rewarded myself a bit with these:

A soft pink polka-dot top from Bench
Winning combination of my favorite color and print
Books from National Bookstore: Sex and the City 2: The Stories, The Fashion, The Adventure; That Extra Half an Inch by Victoria Beckham; Geek Tragedies by Carljoe Javier; and Lumayo Ka Nga Sa Akin by Bob Ong
National Bookstore is currently having their month-long sale so I got everything for only P1,021.
I must rest my heart and my brain now because tomorrow will be a long day. It will be my first time to go to a brand immersion (and tomorrow we'll have two) and then we'll have a food event at one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the evening.

How are you? Hope life's treating you well ♥

Methinks you should invest in a camera with a remote control so that you can take and upload photos of your outfits ;)
