Here in my room

Before:


Now:
I decided to transfer my red hearts cut-outs from my walls to my door. :-) I'll take a flying-kiss pose here soon! I think this paper cut-out wall art thing (inspired by colormekatie.blogspot.com) looks prettier on white background! :)
I also moved the rainbow raindrops to the other side of the door (my room side). :-) Looks like it's going to flood today! ;p
What I placed in my walls are magazine cutouts, certificates I got from speaking engagements, magazine features of my online shop, etc. :)
Like a huge mood-board or collage! :) I'd like to fill the other spaces more, not near my "headboard" though, as the raindrops pre-this-design got crumpled when I place my pillow on them! :D 
I also (finally!) opened these pillows Ana gave to me as birthday present :) It stayed in the plastic for months, I am so excited to sleep tonight with new pillows!
I took this pic with my hand-mirror, which lies on my bedside. I wanted to post a photo of the hat (which I sell …

ristras: a new mexican dining experience

Image
Here's what Geo, Gillian and I ate after watching the play Legally Blonde and visiting Fred's bakeshop. This new found place is Ristras Mexican Grill, which is located in San Juan. I am in love with Mexican food for its variety of flavors and for offering vegetarian-friendly dishes, that's why I was thrilled when Geo suggested we try out this place. Geo loves taking me to different indie restaurants, especially those with vegetarian delicacies. The sisters ordered the HUGE chicken burrito, while I had the vegetarian chimichanga--which the waiter explained as also a burrito but fried. Since their serving is to-share, I have to have my order sliced--the other half for take home. Geo also treated us with the chips and cheese quesadillas. I enjoy their salsa and sour cream dips the most: really mouthwatering! :p Though the bill is quite heavy on the pocket (the chimichanga is P290 ($6.45)), while Geo and her sister paid around P800 ($17.77)...their serving size is also heavy t…

4S Reunion

Image
The 4S (our section) reunion with barely half the class attended was still a success (we were 12 by the end of the day). :) The "Saturday Lunch" schedule won amongst the three choices they posted online, and we all met up in Greenbelt Makati's Krokodile for affordable-group-food Pinoy dishes. When I entered the place with Ana and Ange--whom we saw while walking to the venue!--and I waved at my former physics teacher! She was known as being the "terror" teacher in highschool for being in charge also of student formation and discipline (hello violations and confiscated ID! :D)...but my class adores her! :) More stories on this day IN THIS POST. :-)

Posted about this event again since I saw a whole body shot of my outfit for the day ^^ , thanks to the post of my friend Alli. :) As said in previous post, I bought the oversized pink top from a department store, then wore a bronze pocket-watch necklace I had in my yellow hand bag. I actually used this very same bag on…

Over-loaded Weekend!

Image
Here's what I twitted awhile ago (other than the international/domestic seat-sale again): "in my line of "work" dapat weekends ata ako asa house since lahat ng tao dun nag oonline and nagshoshop hahaha! :D tambak ng irereply today!"
(In my line of "work" I should spend my weekends at home since people are more free to go online and online shop on these days! I have so much to reply today!)


I realized this after opening my email and Multiply online shop account...I have tons of inquiries and order forms to reply to! :p But even with these, I have to say that this busy-weekend was a blast! Here's what kept me away from the computer from Friday to Sunday! :-)

Friday



Call time for the Blogging Seminar that I was invited to in La Salle was around 10am. I arrived too-much-on-time (no allowance, how unprofessional noh? haha!), and after several problems with strict guards and visitors' entrance policies of the school, we entered the room and the first …

Blogging Seminar

Image
When my constant-Anagon Collection buyer Megann texted me about a blogging seminar, I was soooo thrilled! I really wanted to attend one, and listen to speakers' tips on blogging. But then she actually invited me as a SPEAKER! :D
I thought June 25 is still far, but then I realized that days do fly so fast, and tomorrow is THE day already! I don't know what topics or stories to talk about in this speaking engagement, especially when I just read a twit from a famous local writer/editor that "Note to writers: It's usually a good thing to not talk about yourself in your article. You're not as important as you probably think you are"
"And I say that as a reader, not an editor."

In my past speaking engagements--but as a Young Entrepreneur or as online seller(!!!), I LOVE to share my experiences. Sometimes, I speak too much of details, hoping people will be inspired. I am afraid I might bore people tomorrow, so I guess I have to make my "speech" 50/5…

If you stare long enough,Jul 6, '08 1:57 PM
for everyone
...you think you’ll finally see what you’ve been looking for?
Would your eyes adjust, just like in the dark, as long as you keep them there, glaring, watching, looking intently, not necessarily searching . . .
Would you realize what is lacking? Or what is it you will die for? Or what is there ahead of you?


I think I am losing touch with the world, and forgot about dreaming. You think it’s all there in the heavens, staring back at me? ;-)

There really is, I believe, a thin line bordering the heavens from the earth. The one you saw, or have evanescently seen that fateful day, in the Summer of Healing.
While people were consumed, too busy being busy— Right in front of you, The momentary collapsing of the boundary that separates us from the gods.

Living High, Mighty, and Righteously because of you!

*** To the hat-guy, Mr. A-Z, thank you for your beautiful songs and awesome music!!!!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! :-) (i'm sure it's a great day! :))

*** I am not my face. I am not my hair.
I am not my family. I am not my care.


I am not my upbringing. I am not my mole.
I am not my receding gum. I am not my cold.


I am not my money. And I’m not my fame.
I’m not my hat. I’m not even my name.


I’m just an idea that happened upon love.
I am that I am and that I am is enough." -Jason Mraz, Who Am I?

On business...

I got this framed poster from my dad: The Greatest Salesman in the World (yup, he reads Og Mandino books ;))...
How true it is that getting clients and buyers is never easy..all money spent for marketing. Like on business cards, promos, freebies, paperbags (packagings!). Plus establishing rapport with each buyer I encounter online or in person, during meet ups.

But how easy it is to lose them, with the wrong item, with a delayed delivery, with shipment booboos. I wonder how some online sellers afford to be mataray (rude) when replying to their buyers?
Oh the challenges of being involved in a business! I love the thrill of it! ;-)
PS: I posted my Davao trip in Anagon's Travel Blog. :-) Hope you check it out if you have the time! ;-) <3
