As I said on my last post, my cousin Bhebe’s birthday (as well as my sister’s) was on 6th of March, but she opted to have a party on Saturday (5th). First on agenda: party top!

The thing is, this past two months I haven’t been able to buy during the 5-peso sale of my fave ukay joint. It seemed that they were always having their “Everything must go” sales on a weekday. For two instances now, I will be watching and guarding the signs: 20% off, 50% off, everything Php100, everything Php50, Php20, and so on, only to find when I go the next Saturday, sure that it will be the 5-peso rumble, a sign that reads: “NEW ARRIVALS”. Ugh.

The good thing was I now find myself stretching my imagination for those items buried in my “pending box” which were bought last year. Just like this one:

Oops, got too busy last week, wasn’t able to post, and in a hurry now,  but more of that later.*Groan*-Great! pic:

Slash and stitch!

This is week’s refashion is just my “slash and stitch” creation as I have been busy, owing to the nearing audit season. Also, last week we really have to see Udeng’s favorite band at Phi Club (which belongs to Atoy Co). Manila Beer sponsored three performers (Imago, Rico Blanco, and Callalily) and we had a great time! We even joined at one of the games. We didn’t win, but we got to take home a calendar, pen, and ID lace as consolation prizes. Not bad. But the one that had a really memorable, once-in-a-lifetime experience was Udeng.

Second month! I just got back from my out-of-town audit engagement. (Whew.) I enjoyed last week’s refashioning with Aia (or Momoy to us), my niece, that I said to myself, “Why should I have all the fun?” So for this week, it will all be about my niece and nephew! From two pieces of jackets I snagged for five pesos (USD 0.10) each, I will be making… tentenenen!… kawaii hats! (Which is all the rage nowadays, and can be bought at around 350 to 650 PHP or 8 to 14 USD.)

How cute is today's *groan*-great photo? 🙂
