blog full of introductions


first introduction: yes, $2 dresses are cool..but hey, i live in the Philippines and $2 is still PHP90 and that can already buy someone a meal. so i present to you my PHP10 dress. something i scoured from our local market trip months ago. it needed a bit of fixing as the neckline's threads were loose but with the help of basic sewing skills learned from years in an all-girls school, i managed to sew the neckline back. aside from the dress being multi-colored and floral, my most favorite part is that it's a tent dress and can be adjusted using the thin strings attached on it. forgiving. very forgiving -- especially for a girl who has gained so much weight from the two trips she's been on..haha!

second introduction: F-R-I-N-G-E! i need it in my life right now. every time i say that when we were shopping in Bangkok, my mom and sister would laugh and roll their eyes. oh well, i'm shallow like that. since i couldn't find a fringe bag, i settled for this awesome vest instead. oooh, i'm so excited to pair this with floral and printed sun dresses and maxi skirts and swimsuits. summer is here!

third introduction: my gecko ring. my gecko love. my sister was baffled at how i can love such weird accessories as last year, i also went ballistic over my fox ring but for me, the weirder the better. i've been finding reasons to wear this for days now and i've been finding myself just staring at it, even over a stop light as i'm driving and imagining that it's a real gecko on my finger. yes, i'm weird like that too. *smirk*

ps. i threatened to disconnect my internet connection and when i got home from the service center, my internet suddenly worked fine.tsk tsk. hope this is the fix they promised.

Okay, so P10=~$.25? Wow! Love your rings! The gecko is awesome, and the leopard is pretty cool, too! I can't wait to take my boys to the Philippines and see their reaction to the real geckos. Please excuse my ignorance since my experience in the Philippines is only in Pampanga and Cavite. Do geckos run around on your walls in Cebu? Again, please excuse my ignorance!
