the game of tag


knitted button-up dress - thrifted | lace camisole - mango | brown leggings - random | brown gladiator flats - leaveland | green braided belt - thrifted | tan fringe bag - lil' sister's | stacks of bangles - hongkong finds | rings - props | brown sunnies - thrifted at carbon

i was tagged by lee of spunk and glam to answer a few questions.

1.  What do you do for a living?
I work for a call center as a Team Leader.
2.  What is your blog name and why?
My blog name is 'Vanilla Ice Cream' because when I started this blog as a personal blog back in 2007, I was at a time of my life where I was undecided, fearing too much about my future and mostly heartbroken. Vanilla ice cream always made me feel better. The feeling vanilla ice cream gives me is actually on my very first post of this new blog.
3.  Who is your favorite singer/band and why?
This is a really tough question...I have lots of  favorite singers and bands. I simply cannot make up my mind. I've always loved Jewel, Natalie Imbruglia when I was growing up. Then I found indie rock and pop punk rock and brit rock and I fell in love with music all over again. I love the killers, the cure, the strokes, the smiths, the honorary title, imogen heap, regina spektor, the national, john mayer, jack johnson and lots more. I love these kinds of music because they take me out of my daily routine and give that 'soundtrack' to what I am doing or experiencing. More about my love for rock here.
4.  What is your favorite restaurant and your favorite thing to eat there? 
I would have to say Krua Thai or Siam (I think they have the same owner..haha!) I love Thai food because I love peanuts or nuts in my food and they combine the sweet and spicy in one dish. Harry and I also love the Pad Thai in Lemon Grass.
5.  What is your favorite item of clothing?
Oh my, another question which I cannot give a specific answer. I have this black vintage shirt that I thrifted in college that has vintage cars all over the front. It's kinda' loose and very comfortable. It's my go-to shirt when I just want to be comfortable or just don't care about dressing up. I think I've paired it with shorts, skirts and jeans.
6.  Who is your favorite fashion icon?
drew barrymore | janis joplin | mary-kate olsen | nicole richie

7.  What is your personal fashion style?
i like to be comfortable (but maybe a little sacrifice on shoes). i wear lots of bohemian stuff --- whether i just wear accents or really boho tops or dresses. i love the idea of not caring too much very my clothes match. as much as i love earth colors like blues, tan, browns and nudes, i also have a share of wearing neons too. i have to say, i dress according to my mood.   
8.  Where do you usually go for ukay-ukay or bargain shopping?
there is this store right beside a hospital that has new stuff every end of the month. my mom, sisters and i make it a habit to go there every month. i hardly buy in malls --- only to buy shoes. and my shoe price limit is P2500.  

i want to post who i want to tag but i'll do that on monday. i'm in a hurry because i need to catch some zzzz's to wake up at 2:00 PM to prepare for my friend's wedding.

by the way, thanks to everyone who commented on my last post. i took a sick leave on thursday to allow myself to rest and i slept for 16 hours! whoa! i felt better when i woke up but still very much decided to leave this career. i hope i get called up for interviews soon!
