Everything Looks Better with a Dash of Yellow

Wearing: plaid dress: St. Michael from Marks & Spencer | yellow oxfords: local store | bag: vintage

Sundays are for sleeping in and catching up on my reading. But I'm on a blogging roll so might as well squeeze in another blog post. These photos were taken yesterday, in the midst of the crazy heat. Funny how these days, we have resorted to being photograph ninjas, sneakily taking photos whilst strangers are not looking on and hurrying up before the weather decides to change its indecisive mind and pour another bout of rain.

As you can see, I still haven't gotten over the plaid print. At this rate, I'm never going to get over it. I still have tons of plaid-printed stuff to wear so it isn't going away from this blog any time soon.

Well, thanks for stopping by and reading. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

Oscillate Wildly

top and skirt: vintage | sneakers: local store | bag: vintage | hair bow: local store | glasses: Chanel

You know what irks me the most? It's when you are feeling low and people tell you that you have no right to feel down because you have it going easy compared to other "less fortunate" beings. They're right, of course. I, too, despise people who complain like there's no tomorrow over the most trifling things when in fact, they have so much to be thankful for. 

However, there's no telling how strong or weak a person is. Just because you are living a privileged or a relatively comfortable life doesn't mean your pain isn't real. So I say this to people who are sad but feel guilty about it: don't. Just don't. Feel sad, by all means. Cry if it makes you feel better. Let yourself run through the course and take your time bouncing back. You are, after all, human. You are entitled to your occasional human lapses.

Occupational Hazards

Ugh. Ice cream mochi. I could use one right now. Or two. Or three. Until my brain freezes though. And maybe throw in some Army Navy burrito too. Excuse me while I delve into my inner sadist and make myself hungry some more.

So these are more photos from our Baguio getaway. You know, I live in pleated skirts these days. And knitted tops. I just feel like knitted tops go best with pleated skirts. Like mac and cheese. You should see my latest haul. It's like a mountain of redundant skirts and knitted tops. I don't know where to begin styling them to make them look different from each other. Queen of redundancy since 1986. Well, now. 

I've also been searching for transparent PVC bubble bags for a trip to Vigan I am planning. I'm just not sure transparent PVC bags are smart to bring in a foreign place. I don't know, it just screams "mug me!". Funny how that doesn't scare me more than the tax I have to pay to have those shipped to me. Meh.

Anyhoo, hope you are all having a wonderful middle of the week. Lately, my freelancing life has gotten the best of me. I have absolutely no recognition of days of the week now. Just before this post, I was absolutely certain it's Tuesday! Talk about occupational hazards. Alrighty, I'm off to finish season 3 of Supernatural now and maybe do some more work

Visiting Camp John Hay

Well hello! It's another Baguio getaway trip post. We actually went here just for the food. Myk and I have been craving Samgyeopsal for a while and we couldn't take the lure anymore so we decided to just go ahead and have some there even if it's not yet the end of the week.

I underestimated the weather because it was cold! I didn't bring anything to fend off the cold except for this frail excuse for a cardigan and my knee-high socks. The knee-high socks served well in keeping me warm though.

Cardigan, top, skirt: all thrifted | Shoes: from a local store | Bag: Fashion 71| Eyeglasses: Chanel

This top has the cutest collar! It has cat embroidery that reminds me so much of the Miu Miu cat collars that were all the rage a couple of seasons ago.

While taking photos around Camp John Hay, we came across this stray cat. We figured it isn't really a stray since he/she looks so well-fed.

Creepy house at Camp John Hay.

There's a mini Statue of Liberty there!

Myk posing in front of it.

Myk's idea of a pose. lol!

We went here to sample Mochiko but had a bit of a hard time finding the store. The place was so huge. We had to do some serious walking and in the midst of it, we were caught in a heavy downpour. By the time we found the Mochiko store, we were already soaked. It was fun though.

I love the photos taken with the all those pine trees in the background. We don't have that back home. Someday, I'd like to buy a small, picturesque place in Baguio and spend a lot of time there. It feels like a second home already especially with all the memories I share with Myk.
