Yesterday was epic. 

I can't express how thankful and still hindi makapaniwala ako with the opportunity that landed to me, which I learned about just a few days ago. Some of my blogger friends and I had a photo shoot last night in Cyrus Panganiban's studio in QC, where we also met other bloggers from diff fields. I am not sure if it's ok to divulge details na, but since wala pang nagpopost about this, might as well not mention muna what this is for...Although may mga nakatext / tweet nadin ako tunkol dito. Hahaha. Blabber mouth. ;p

Anyway, I went out earlier than usual yesterday (maaga na ang past 1pm sakin haha) because I was told na wala daw makeup artist for the shoot. At dahil cheapo mode ako--kinapalan ko na ang shy-face ko hahaha. I entered two makeup stores (SM's Body Shop and Revlon) for their "free makeover", pero umuurong lang tyan ko to inquire. I almost used my atm card and just go to a salon, pero I tried my luck one last time in Glorietta's Body Shop (the one na malapit sa Landmark). After I shuffled through the racks of lipsticks and powder, si ateng na mismo nag ask how she can help me. 

Eto sinabi ng lakas maka-mahiyain na si ako :P - "Ate, umm kelangan po ba may umm purchase umm para maavail po yun ano free makeover niyo po? Umm, or dapat may bilhin noh!?" Hay what is awkward. :P

Anyway, to make my long story short, nakalibreng pa-mukap ako! Comedy!!! The best si Ate and their head makeup artist: Kudos to The Body Shop Glorietta for being so accommodating. They even gave me tips, love them! In the end though, nahiya lang din ako and I still looked for something to buy in their store. I purchased their classic lip and cheek tint worth P800, pero keri na...Magagamit ko naman yun sa future! :)

Another highlight for me is my conversations with Paul. We spent the whole afternoon talking and talking...Sa Starbucks 6750 which is the pick up point for the shuttle, and sa ride mismo going to the venue, and the shuttle-ride after the shoot. What an insightful person, I love his business tips, stories on OS Accessories, and his honest take on blogging. Very inspiring, nakakabilib!

 Paul Jatayna 
 I love talking to you the whole time:) seriously<3

Again, I still can't believe that I'll be seeing my face sa main road (walang babato ng kamatis a haha)... The idea didn't even crossed my wildest dreams...Magka book pa siguro or tumalon from airplane, but ma-billboard? Hahahaha! Natatawa ako isipin at hindi ako mashowbiz (madaldal lang sa sulat hehe)! I am excited though, sabi ko nga sa FB and to my closest friends: Hindi naman palaging mapapasama ako sa ganito.... Story to tell din to pag may mga apo nako at walang magawa sa family reunion! Hehehehe. ;)

Lola Anagon: "O diba mga apo, fashionista commuter na fashionista commuter! ;)"

That in all things, God may be Glorified!
