Hangin’ On To A Dream?

I used to dream of being a successful local artist when I was younger. It was a big dream during college. I dreamt about being on-stage with a rockin’ guitar plugged in one of those audio interface and sing my heart out while wearing a sexy yet rockin’ outfit. LOL! Just like Avril Lavigne. I used to sing some of her songs in college.

The dream eventually died when I started working. I didn’t pursue the dream, anyway. I just got tired of it, I guess. But sometimes the dream pops up especially if I’m watching variety shows on TV or checkin’ out live performances. They make me reminisce the feeling of being on stage. Doing what you love to do.

I may not have pursued my dream but I’m happy that somehow I was able to get on stage on my younger years. My dream will always be a dream. Who knows? That dream might still come true. :)

Thinking About Learning A New Hobby

A colleague of mine makes nice accessories. I actually bought some of her nice bracelets and earrings. It’s a hobby that for her “has eventually evolved into a craft, not a crap”, according to my friend. 😀

I haven’t seen those accessories she made that looked like “crap” though. But I really love the ones she made recently. They look like pandora charms but she said she still have a lot of learning to do make her accessories look even better. I’ve been telling her to sell some of them online but she said she didn’t have the time to do it anymore. Instead, she sell her charms to her friends.

I’m thinking about learning how to create the accessories myself. I wanted to have a new hobby especially when I’m back in the province. It’s not a bad idea, is it? :)

My Cup Of Coffee Story

One of my colleagues was smiling at me while I was holding my cup full of coffee. I was very careful not to spill it while walking on my way to my desk. I didn’t realize I look funny when that colleague of mine demonstrated to me the way I looked while holding my cup of coffee. Haha! She looked funny herself during the demo.

I told her to give me personalized tumblers so she would stop teasing me about my small cup. Or else, she’ll just get used to how I look whenever I get my cup of coffee! 😛

A Day At David’s Salon

My friend, Irene and I decided to have our hair done about two weeks ago. It was in preparation for our Church’s Mid-year Thanksgiving. We decided to visit the famous David’s Salon since they are famous for great hair styling. We wanted to make sure our money’s worth. :)

Irene doesn’t want her hair cut short. She just wanted to have it trimmed a little bit. I used to tease her about her hair being her head blanket because of it’s thickness. LOL! Anyway, here is her hair before and after our visit to the salon.

From head blanket to perfect trim! :)

Like the usual, Irene and I had fun chatting while our hairstylist was doing his job trimming and cutting our hair. Irene was already getting nervous about the trimming. And I, on the other hand, excited about looking younger than my age. Hahaha!

:)

Finally, after the blow dry!

Yey! Pretty me! LOL!

And here’s Irene and yours truly, all pretty and set for our Thanksgiving Day!

A beautiful David’s Salon day it was!

A Gig On Our Team Building

Guess what? LOL! I’m just happy to let you all know that I’ll be performing some songs for our company’s outdoor team building come August 4!

Honestly, I’m kinda nervous because I haven’t performed in front of an audience for a while. In fact, I really haven’t practiced singing for quite sometime now. I’ve been very busy with a lot of things and I’ve never really given myself time to sing. Sigh.

Anyway, I can go out this week so I can change the strings on my guitar. I haven’t even played my guitar for months already. It has just been hanging on my wall for a long time now, untouched. I wonder if it is still in good shape. Pathetic me.

I guess it’s time for me to look for the right songs to play for the team building. I hope I won’t annoy those who doesn’t really like my singing in the office. Haha! I’ll make a separate post about the haters soon. For now, I need to start practicing! 😀

A Fab And Chic Business Plan

I have blogged about Lainy’s online business which she named after this blog – The Fab Chic’s Closet. Instead of doing a garage sale in front of her house, she’s smart enough to post her pre-loved clothes and sell them online! I’m glad she did or else I won’t be able to get hold of her  nice dresses! 😀

Since I’m going back home for good and my brother and I are planning to open up a business once he’s well established on his job abroad, I’m thinking about opening up a store which will also showcase fab and chic clothing, apparels and accessories.  Anything that a lady would need! Well, I’m thinking about naming it after Lainy’s online business. I’m also planning to ask her to be my partner on my business plan. I’m not sure what’s her say on this but I think it’s a good idea especially if it has a business liability insurance.

I hope and pray Lainy is going to approve my business proposal. Her passion for fashion will be a great contribution to the business ones this plan comes to reality! :)

The Price Is Worth The Sunglasses

My tired eyes hurt whenever I get out of the office in the morning but I still haven’t bought myself new sunglasses. A pair of sunglasses are important for me to protect my eyes from the harshness of the sun especially that I work at nights and the sun is up and shining so bright when I go out of the office.

My friend, Raquel is selling original sunglasses. I’m planning to purchase one from her soon but I have to save some money for it. It’s a bit expensive but I’m pretty sure the price is worth it. I hope she’s got one of those arnette sunglasses since it has polycarbonate lenses which are scratch or impact resistant. I’m careless sometimes that’s why most of my cheap sunglasses don’t last. :)

Acquisitions From The Fab Chic’s Closet

I can’t wait to wear these acquisitions from The Fab Chic’s Closet!

A friend of ours who lives here in Manila is scheduled to go home to GenSan on Friday. I asked her a favor to bring the clothes with her when she goes back here in Manila.  I want to wear one of the dresses for our Church’s Mid-year Thanksgiving Anniversary on July 22. I hope it comes here on time! I’m really excited about my new dresses!

Excited About Going Back Home For Good

It’s only 3 or 4 months and I’ll be home sweet home for good! I’ll be going back to my beloved province, Polomolok, South Cotabato (which is a 20-minute ride from GenSan) to take care of my nephew and Mom. I’m excited about my new life!

I’ll be bringing a lot of my stuffs back home. I’m wondering if I can still bring a pet for my nephew. Will the airline allow me to bring a bird on board? If so, I’ll ask my brother to buy some decorative outdoor bird houses for a new pet at home. I’ll have to check on that anyway. 😀

I’m more excited about taking care and at the same time having fun with my nephew. I’ll be an Aunt and mother at the same time, I guess. Since his mom is working overseas and doesn’t say when she’s going back home. He’ll be left under my care and supervision once my brother takes off to also work as a nurse in the Middle East. I’m a cool Aunt, anyway so Brandon will have so much fun with me for sure. 😀
