purpose of my #ootd

I love my clothes. Clothes are my armor.

Clothes are powerful. Because clothes can either attract or repel people.

People can take one look at your clothes and sort of figure out your personality, status, age…etc.

I wear a t-shirt, pants and rubber shoes to work daily. I purposely dress like shit that… That means no fancy stuff: no accessories, a plain watch, a rather plain rubber shoe. I even wear my nerd glasses. I wear my bag as a frontpack. (wearing the backpack to the front, and by doing so it will cover your stomach and you look like a pregnant human) Not appealing or fashionable at all.

But it sort of works. The plain-ness repel attention from muggers (when you are living and commuting) in Manila, there are a lot of them everywhere, they take a good look at everyone on the street or public jeepney and figure out who will be their next prey. On muggers eyes: well dressed=Money-ed.

My clothes act as my camouflage. To blend in the crowd. Which is hard to do since I look a bit foreign with my yellow skin and tiny eyes.  I have to look as plain as possible. My workplace is male dominated. So, it is really better to dress like the males.

On weekends however, I go all out. I dress nicely. Drop my glasses and trade them for contact lenses.

I make sure my dresses go with the bag, shoes and accessories. Make sure I look good before I leave the house. And that I look feminine. after 5 days of purposely dressing like a slob, on weekends I dress to stand out.



At times, I almost feel like I am living two separate lives.

In something as simple as a change of clothes.

thankfully, finally

It is scorching hot in Manila. but thankfully, finally Saturday. Weekend is here.

I’m up early to go to work and then go buy buttons to repair some of the items in my closet that lost their buttons. I also have to pick up a skirt from the tailors.

Then I’m off to get my eyebrows done and maybe get nails done too. Its been a while since the last… 

Meiji Apollo Chocolate Bunny

One of my favorite chocolates-Meiji Apollo Chocolate in Strawberry *I also adore the little bunny!*

I feel ‘happy dancing’ like the bunny in the Meiji chocolate box I just finished off. (I really have a happy dance, that I do when I feel happy.)

This photo below reminds me of that my bunny rabbit Pepper who looks exactly like that! She also love strawberries as much as I do.

Then pick up some fresh fruits before I head back home to freeze for the rabbits to enjoy.

Happy Weekend Everyone!

oh yeah!

Bring on the fun! Weekend is here!

I’m off to take a stroll at the mall, maybe paint my toes purple, pig out, watch a movie or just make a huge dent on the couch with a glass of wine in my hand because I’m classy like that and watch Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch).

Weekends are for indulgences and chocolate. Cheers everyone!

dancing to happy

I have a bad case of last song syndrome and a dancing bug for the past few days due to Pharell Williams’ song ‘Happy’.

Pharrell Willams

Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do

But its okay since its such a happy upbeat song.  Just right to set the tone for the weekends. (listen to the music here)

HAPPY weekend everyone!

extended weekend

Had a simple extended weekend due to the midterm election, and also celebrated mother’s day with my Mum.

I am actually happy with how mother’s day turned out. Kei (my other half) is really thoughtful and brought my mom a nice cake! We also got Mum a nice blue embroidered blouse, and gave her roses.

Then the next day, after going out to vote. Kei and I spent the day watching our favorite series Game of Thrones. I have my own set of favorite characters in the series, Kei has his too. We also have some characters we loathe to death! (that bratty joffrey baratheon tops the list)  Followed by a lengthy discussion of  who did what in the series.

I can’t wait for the next sequel to the book A dance with dragons. And of course I will watch and re-watch all the episodes of this series till the new season comes along.

Game of Thrones Date

By night there were partial results from the election.

Honestly it was disappointing that those that I voted for did not get the seat.


When you play the game of thrones you win or you die.
