when confused about what to wear, we can't go wrong with neutrals. as much as a love colors with punch, i always go back to shades of brown. it's my go to palette.

i've been losing some sleep because of the band practice at the back of our apartment. here in cebu, celebrations start with christmas season and end by valentines. some people even don't take down christmas decorations until february..haha! and why is this? well, cebuanos celebrate 'the sinulog' -- the feast of the baby jesus. it's a city wide celebration with a big procession on 3rd saturday of the month and a huge mardigra on the sunday after that.  there's street dancing from different contingents and schools (all sacrifices and offerings to the baby jesus)..and there's a lot of parties on the streets...the mardigra ends with fireworks...and before we know it, we're waking up with a really bad's really crazy!

anyway, my 'a-te' (big sister) told me i need to get better backdrops for my photos. i wish! i don't have much time or chances to go around and find good scenery as i take my photos right when i get home from work. i wish i can have denise's backgrounds. she always has really good and interesting ones.
