Dinner Before Dessert

Saturday, January 05, 2013

Time really flies! The first week of the new year just went by, in a hurry, 
and now it's the weekend nanaman! Spent the past few days working and working 
on paid online orders I got during the holidays, and sourcing materials to make sure
I accomplish everything, PLUS create NEW things again for Anagon Collection.

With the sourcing, I went to different places around the metro last Wednesday and Friday. 
I bought a new MRT Stored Value Card para hindi maubusan in between the commutes.
I got one in a different design, more colorful and pop art print compared to the previous card
with the motorcycle ad. Ang cute nito!

It's a Saturday, but I devoted my weekend in accomplishing the KULASA keychains 
ordered by St. Scho Westgrove. I half-hearted-ly declined a shopping trip (Topshop sale!!!) 
and some lakads to practice narin siguro delayed gratification. 
To have the dinner before the dessert. 

With the 160+ key chains I have to accomplish, the tendency is to fall-short on quality. What I do is
for every piece nag ginagawa ko, I try to think of the person who will receive it sometime soon. 
And hope that when she gets the customized item, she'll love it and know that it's something 
special and made just for her--calloused fingers and chipped nails and all! :) Work of Heart talaga!

I hope you're having a fun Saturday! Leaving you with these ladies restroom vandals I spotted
during one of my MRT station CR breaks, hehehe. May matututunan ka nga naman even when you're
just out and about, braving the commuter life in Manila's concrete jungles. 

"I need a job. I'm a hopeless girl. Pls help me."
"Meron yan! Ayaw mu lang mag hanap! Hahaha!"
(If there's a will, there's a way! ;))

My favorite:
"Nakakapagod, pero kakayanin!!!"
