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.

But all that being said, it sure will be cool being an Ophiucus. 🙂

Enough of horoscopes, let’s go to transformations. Good news (for me), it is a 10-peso day! (Note to self: take a pic of sale sign on the next visit.)

Last week when I found a cute checkered blouse, Udeng told me, “But you have a lot of those.” (My mother works for a multi-national garment firm. Upon thinking about it, however, I reasoned, “Yes, but you can’t just hack up a TNF shirt.” Also, the design I’m thinking about requires just that and a pair of jeans. So I went back and got these:

Off to the ricefields?

My youngest sister took this *groan* picture, and laughing, she asked me, “Papunta ka nang palayan?” (“You off to the ricefields?”). Hopefully I will not get the same question after I am done with it. Read the rest of this entry »
