of alarm texts and music


"you mean the world to me."
waking up to this sure makes my day better. harry surprised me with an alarm text message on my phone. so i get to wake up everyday with that text. i've been feeling low over the last couple of days and felt slightly disconnected from the world. aside from all of your encouragements and sympathies,  i'm so thankful that harry is here to bear with me despite my weirdness, sadness and grouchiness -- man, i can snap like that and he'd just swallow hard and take it all in. it's only to you hon that i'd say sorry for being a bitch. *sincere apologies*

music is a big part of my life. and especially on days when i cannot begin to grasp what i'm feeling, i immerse myself in music. for days like these, i am thankful for:

frou frou
imogen heap
regina spektor
the national
the honorary title
john mayer
up dharma down

your music has kept my life in balance.

Have you heard of the Feather Report app? This is exactly the outfit that it gave me today!

Btw, how do you know Eden? She's one of the very first bloggie friends I met here. Just curious on our "degree of separation" in this blogosphere! ;)

Read your post about thrifting. I've never tried ukay in Manila. My mom is a germaphobe and wouldn't let me! I do some occasional thrift shopping here and so far, I'm happy! Would love to do more of it if only I have time.

Have a great Friday! =)
