Song for the moment

BREATHE by Alexi Murdoch
One of my faves in my trip out playlist.
- - -

In the quiet of the shadow
In the corner of a room
Darkness moves upon you
Like a cloud across the moon

You're wearing all the silence
Of a constant that will turn
Like the windmill left deserted
Or the sun forever burn

So don't forget to breathe
Don't forget to breathe
Your whole life is here
No eleventh hour reprieve
So don't forget to breathe

Keep your head above water
But don't forget to breathe

And all the suffering that you've witnessed
And the hand prints on the wall
They remind you how it's endless
How endlessly you fall

And the answer that you're seeking
For the question that you found
Drives you further to confusion
As you lose your sense of ground

So don't forget to breathe
Don't forget to breathe
Your whole life is here
No eleventh hour reprieve
So don't forget to breathe

Keep your head above water
But don't forget to breathe

Don't forget to breathe
You know you are here
But you find you want to leave
So don't forget to... breathe

Just breathe...

Cool, yo!

I know I'm way past my teen years and that I don't dress my age (my friend's dad says that we still dress like we're in High School. haha!) but man oh man oh man, I wanna look like 'em cool H&M girls!

Went gaga at H&M in HK, but due to budgetary contraints, my only "investment piece" was this super duper cool pink and green hoodie. Oh, plus I got these hot pink shades and a purple sling bag. Hahaha!

For a girl whose turning 25 in a few months, maybe I should let my bright bold colors take the back seat and dress more my age... Hmmmm?

Chipper than an Eager Beaver

But, hehehe, I need to actually work on it first.

Excited still!!!!

Such Great Heights

If only I were a foot taller, I would love to be a flight attendant!

I love hearing stories from my second mother, Tita Ellen, about her fabulous heyday, funny encounters with passengers up there in the clouds, and the countless places she has visited.

I feel a twinge of jealousy whenever I see pictures of FAs in different countries. Ah, the shopping, the travelling, the exciting life of Flight Attendant!

Yes, I'm aware that there may be bad experiences too (not to mention the risk of air catastrophes), but I'm blinded by the fabulousness of it all.

Shoo, flu!

I think I need a flu shot! I'm feeling sick again :/ It's a neck and stomach pain combo this time.

Now's not the time to contract something. Just 2+weeks til our thesis deliberations. Aaack! Procrastination is a bad bad habit. I need to shake this off before I officialy join the "work force". Yes, I can come up with mean mean stuff hours before a deadline, but MUST.LEARN.HOW.TO.WORK.MORE.EFFICIENTLY.

I'm obsessing over owning an LV. Well, 2 for that matter.

My heart is set on the Damier Keepall 55 in Ebony and the Mini Lin Speedy.

Yeah right! Maybe I can afford it in 10 years. Haha! Whatever. BUT I know I will only buy an expensive bag when I can easily purchase it with my own hard-earned money. Easily. And when there isn't a budget to keep in mind. When we're not behind on any payments. When we can tell ourselves that life is dandy and that we've made it.

Oh, and I'm going to use that Keepall when we go to the Maldives.

Just you wait and see.
And yes, I do think I'm a bit delirous too. Ha!

I miss my Mozi Ipod cover :(
Bought it in Egg3 in Singapore, lost it somewhere in Makati :( Boohoo

They've got cute cute stuff! I wish I can collect these for my home.

October 10!

One month til our thesis delibs!

Oh no no no no no!

How much research have I done? How much data do I have?
Probably 15%. And 20pages of Word documents of vague facts, culinary trivia, and food articles.

What's better than a white picket fence?

One that's made to look like lace.
This would look perfect installed inside a studio.

Like this!

Closing Time

Whatever happened to Segafredo in Greenbelt 2!?!?

We passed by the area last night, and all we found was an empty store with the lights closed. No explanation posted on its glass doors!

Oh my! I hope they're just doing inventory. Or they just had an out-of-town company trip or something.

Mike and I feel like we're cursed! A lot of the restos/food joints we like going to suddenly just close for some reason. Most of them were in Katipunan.
- Brothers Burger
- Thai in a Box
- that Japanese resto that used to be in Yellow Cab's place
- SR Thai
- that Chinese place that makes my super favorite Beef Brisket in front of SR Thai
- our all-time favorite Thai Canteen

If Greenbelt's Cafe Bola and Kitchen suddenly close down, then we ARE cursed!
