it's:my:time

 
  

i don't have the typical features of a Cebuana which is mostly a mix of Spanish and native blood -- a mestiza as what we call it. i have chinky eyes, that of a chinese though am not fair but have almost caramel skin. i have curly hair and have never had it straightened. i don't have the typical body type too --- while my big sister is model tall at 5'7" and my little sister is petite and can fit into anything, i have an athletic body with round legs and wide shoulders. and although i played with dolls as a kid, i've been into sports growing up (swimming and flag football) and am never afraid to get my hands dirty or my fingernails chipped.  i dress up according to my mood and i have never been an avid follower of style rules -- i don't mix and match to the tee. although i prefer hanging out with the boys due to their uncomplicated outlook and am always mistaken for being one of them due to my sarcasm and humor, i hang out with them in my daintiest dress and red lips. 
this is me. it's my time...

and yours too. join benetton's
