"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers."

Happy Halloween! What have you been up to?


This month was probably the busiest month I've had this year, made worse with a bout with the flu. I barely noticed the days flying by, and now it's almost Christmas again!

Aside from the book launch of Beyond Vol. 2, we also did events for JBL, Sennheiser, and the launch of Barbie Loves Plains & Prints collection. The collection won't be available nationwide until November 7 but I'll show you more photos from the launch and of the pieces on my next post!

My sister also celebrated her 18th birthday this month, and it was fun-filled night attended by our extended families and her friends.



I loved that night.

While I am not looking forward to panic-buying for Christmas gifts again (like I always do), I am excited for the Justice League movie coming out this November. To kick off the pre-event promotional campaign for this movie, the Justice League #UnitedTheFans weekends were organized, starting with the Glorietta leg that happened last Friday to Saturday.

J was asked to display some of his toys, and I played the part of supportive girlfriend.




His birthday comes exactly a week before Christmas so I should start thinking of gift ideas stat. My birthday surprise for him last year came as a total shock for him but it was appreciated, so I need to top that.


He's back to racing Tamiya cars again (that pink car's mine!) so I'm glad he has another hobby to keep himself busy when he's not working. His schedule for the next months are going to be erratic and I'm not sure how we're going to see each other -- it will be like being in a long distance relationship again.


As for me, my doll collection grew exponentially over the last month. You've already met my extra tall Madeline Hatter, well J got me the regular-sized Madeline Hatter, so now I have two of my favorite Ever After High character! I also got the Adult Collector Skelita Calaveras from Monster High, shown on the first photo at the top of this post. She's so pretty despite being a skeleton! Aaand I got another Ever After High doll but I don't have a decent photo of her yet as I haven't taken her out of the box. I'm thinking I should get her out come Valentine's Day, as befitting her character, but we'll see if my EQ can stand waiting that long. ;)


Meanwhile these are a couple of beautiful babies I haven't had the chance to delve into yet: The Art of Neil Gaiman and my Daycraft Notebook from Scribe. I finished all three seasons of Bojack Horseman this month so there's that, but I just wish I have more hours in a day to accommodate all the books gathering dust in my shelves and every little nook and cranny of my house as well as all the Netflix and iflix shows and movies I want to watch.


New month coming up! I wonder where November will take us.
