Untold Feelings // September 23, 2012
And here you go my crappy doodle work! I know that most of you knows that I don’t upload “artsy” artworks or doodles and anything in between like other people do. Well, my drawing abilities suck bigtime (really!!!) and if there’s a talent that I’ve been totally wanting for years now is the ability to draw good things. I’m not given with those skills so forgive my so-called “doodle” for today.
Anyhoo, Untold Feelings. I have a lot of those. You know when you just want to keep all these things and feelings in your mind remained as secret. As much as you wanted to blog about it, or even talk about it, or even rant about it or share it with your friends… you just can’t.
A Thrift Store Story
I’ve been getting impulsive to buy anything I like lately! That considers my last haul post (click) wherein I’ve bought a bandeau/tube floral dress, a blazer and 2 flat shoes. Plus, I also bought few clothing pieces (like 6?) from a thrift store last week which I don’t have a group photo of what I’ve bought. Anyhoo, I’ll tell you a Thrift Store Story today plus few details on what I got or purchased lately to a thrift store slash Ukay-ukay! :)
So last week, I visited my 2 favorite thrift stores because I’ve saw that they are selling cheap shoes and clothes that time! I’ve spotted this White Leather Rubber Shoes from Keds that were sold unbelievably for 50 php per pair. Very cheap, yes? Its actually the same rubber shoes that I had right now that I’m using every time we have our P.E. class. I’ve got mine at Sports Central at SM Fairview for 2,195 php per pair, I guess? There’s a super duper big difference noh? Parang presyo lang ng shoe lace yung ukay!
Picture paints a thousand memories. <3
If there is something that I’ve been collecting from the past, those are pictures with its own description, with its own memory/ies. Pictures are like beautiful dreams to me. They give me a lots of reason why I’d have to live life to the fullest and/or why to cry. Tears of joy, maybe? It explains how life seems to be so beautiful. Yes, problems, struggles and any other thing may come to our lives that will lead us to our weakest point but pictures deeply heal me on instant. Pictures are the one who uplift my soul, the one who brings me up again on fire. Pictures are everything to me.

Catholic people really matter the Holy Week, so am I. I matter, value, salute God, Jesus, Mother Mary, and all of the saints and anything else or who else related to Him. Yes, I commit sins and I can say that I might not be the best or THE deserving person in the whole wide world for the love of This person. But here is one thing that I can assure to myself and to everyone else out there… I LOVE HIM BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN HIM, AND I BELIEVE IN HIM BECAUSE I LOVE HIM. No words can express how thankful am I, how grateful am I, how I believe in His performed miracles, how I love him and how I feel so blessed.
I hope I could be good as Him. I hope we all like to learn. I hope we all like to explore and express. I hope that all this “hopes” don’t stay just “hopes” or “dreams” or “wish”; we should really start to.
Say “hi" to my twin babe! :3
Hihihi. Anyhoo, I’m so happy to share with you guys my happiness today. Haha :) Wanna know why? Here’s my day in bullets. :D
- Woke up around 7:30 a.m.
- Did the regular daily ‘thing’ (taking a bath, brushing teeth, fix things, etc.)
- Spend 2 hrs. for that daily ‘girl’ thing today. Haha!
- Went to our practice for JS
- I already went home 2 hrs. after. We had to go at Marikina!
- Then, Marikina trip got suspended. :( <///3 We had no choice but to visit the nearest mall around us (which is SM Fairview) to buy shoes for JS, grocery and fam-bam bonding.
- Nothing, I don’t like the shoes at the Dept. Store so we bought at Primadonna and Jellybean instead. We bought 3 shoesies today! Hihi. :3
- I’m a happy bee because we had shoe shopping today! Next on the list are accessories and any other things that might tickle my fancy. ;)
- FREE COKE DAY TODAY! Almost all of the people were drinking coke while strolling on the mall.
- And… FINALIZING THINGS FOR MY FIRST BLOGVERSARY GIVEAWAY! I think I already had enough sponsors for this giveaway so… stay tuned guise! Its my time to give back the love to my lovely readers. :D
Hmmkay, so please don’t hate my blog if I’ll post a lot of “Shop Alert” posts. Hihi :3 *clue: they might be one of my sponsors, so… ;)
Have a great weekend! :D
Of Prom Dresses and Pumps
Promenades. What do you think about this word? Well for others, promenades are (probably or maybe) one of the best part of being in your Junior High School Year. This is the time where you can totally express yourself upon dancing, showing that you can also get dolled-up and most of all, a bonding time with a friend/classmate/schoolmate and as well as your ‘crushes’. Hihi :3 *u*
Anyhoo, I personally don’t “not-that-much-like-promenades”. Maybe because I find them awkward being paired with someone. I’m actually a shy-type of person if I don’t have an idea of who you are. I’m also quite afraid upon socializing with other people, personally. I also find it awkward being get dolled-up in public especially when I’ll be seeing my schoolmates around. But… oh well, I think that should be my goal for this month and for the next months. Learn to stand up and be proud myself. I should step out out of the box and just enjoy life while learning. :)
Back to the topic, I actually don’t have an idea how do Junior-Senior Promenades go. Like, how do people get dressed with make-ups on thingy. Being paired with someone and that someone would court you within the night and any other stuffs that ‘regularly’ goes upon JS Proms.
Of Prom Dresses and Pumps…
While back reading Kryz Uy’s lookbook, I found out an international store that sells Long, Short and Printed Prom Dresses. And look! These are my top four choices on their site. Their site only show limited designs as well so this is my top picks :)
And for the shoes! <3 I guess I’ll be needing a glittery pumps that day! *u* I find these shoes simple yet elegant. It definitely match anything! I cannot just use them on ‘that’ day (incase), but I can also use them for fasyoooown days and any other important occasions :)
Photos are all from Windsor Store. Please tell me about what do you think about promenades too! And also sites where I can get inspiration from. :) I might get my very own designed gown get tailored next week! :D
I haven’t tried or get a chance to post some clothes I bought on a local store, online buys or thrift buys. And so, what I did for the last few minutes ago… I get my camera and took a shot for some of my newest buys on a thrift shop :))
( I’m so sorry if the photo is kinda blurry. :( ) My recent buys are shown above! They are the ff:
- Silky Cotton Cropped Top w/ Fishnet details on front (black)
- Graffiti Dress w/ Zipper (Polyester)
- Mini Dress w/ Cat Prints (Chiffon)
- Deep Blue Sheer Top w/ lace-y details
This is the Silky Cotton Cropped Top w/ Fishnet details on front! :3 Bought this at a thrift shop near us for 95 php. I know its kinda pricey for a thrift shop but then I just can’t ignore it’s style. I just love how flow-y the top is :D
This is the Deep Blue Sheer Top w/ lace-y details on it. I just love the surprisingly color of it. Also, the lacey details was perfect! Hihi :3 I bought this for only 65 php near QC :D
Graffiti Dress w/ zipper thingo! IRDK why did I bought this and how could I make a statement with this dress. But, I think I bought this dress up because of its print! I find it cool because it somewhat distract other’s eyes. Lol. I can define this as the Attention-getter (if there’s such a word! :p) dress I have on my closet. I bought this for 120 php.
Aaaand *u* ~ my dainty mini dress / top! :3 Sorry if the lighting was kinda unfair. Lulsie~ But yeah. I super like this! It really defines the word D-A-I-N-T-Y which I find awesome! I’m really into dainty things because their cuteness is irresistible! Hihi :33 Also, I love its style especially the stretchable thingy on its waist. Then, also the inner fabric thingy. Hihi! :3 Yay, right? :D I bought this for only 95 php! Such a steal, yes? :D
And, to end this post with… I just wanted you to see my newest pair of shoes! I bought them on Jellybean which I think I’ll be using on just soooome important events on my life. Lol. Also, I’ll be thinking if I’ll gonna use them on our Christmas party on school. :D
The floral Mary Janes! Hihi :3 I bought them on SM Masinag pa, (at Marikina) because I was eyeing for almost 1 month na that time at SM Fairview. But because the stall on SM Fairview was kinda small (and I find the salesladies too there that they were like not that accommodating), I decided to shop there instead at SM Masinag since we (me and my cousin) had a trip there on Vermont. We also had a chance to visit Sta. Lucia after 2 years! Hihi :3
Back to the topic, I think I’m now a sucker of anything floral. Hahaha! I got a floral top, floral dresses and now… a floral shoes. :DD So, that’s all for now. Hope you guys like the following items above as much as I do! :D
Suki Day Bazaar: Celebrating 65 Years of Success Together! <3
(Related Post: BLUE WAVE 10/23/11)
So if you can still remember my post about the Blue Wave… well, here’s the promised up next post—the much awaited and my first ever experience to a bazaar :)
So as you can see on the photo above, the Suki Day Bazaar had a pocketful of surprises. From the big tarpaulins (like the greetings of Caltex), the super prepared stage, the bonggels MC's, the dance presentation and the Dragon thingy—they are all great and presented well to us!
Cool ID Passes! Don’t you think? Lol. I don’t actually know if the term is correct or what. But, lets just call them ID Passes. Hmmkay? Hihi :33 So as for the usual ID stuff we got on school, they also have this uniformed format of ID passes and ID laces. I got mine green while my mom got a red one. Also, there’s a somewhat ‘gun-like-structure-that-reads-bar-codes-’ on the said event. I actually find them cool… Like the other saleslady/ies used on malls. And from there, we finally entered the bazaar! Yaaaay. :)
Hello, balloon! This is the first thing that greeted me to the bazaar (aside from booths and the people there, of course!). So its pretty obvious that the balloons there was sponsored or given by the Coca-Cola Company to Suy Sing. And to tell you, there was also a bunch and bunch and bunch of plastic bags filled with those balloons. Hohoho.
First 3 booths: Champion Booth, Ajinomoto Booth and the Silka soaps booth. Anyhoo, before i’ll make kwento about the booths up there, I just wanted you to know that before we entered the bazaar, the girl who entertained us upon getting our ID Passes had gave us a little piece of advice. She told me (I mean, us) that we should visit all the booths out there and present the little card she gave to my mom and let the booth facilitator stamp on it. She also told us that if we really want to enjoy the bazaar, we should play games (to win exciting prizes!) and have some photo on the photo booths surrounding the area. Also, she gave us a Suy Sing Tote bag that got filled with awesome stuffs for just a couple of minutes! Spell out swag dear, like S-W-A-G.
Back to the 3 booths, I liked the Champion booth the most. I liked their booth because they are not making tipid on giving prizes slash loots slash freebies! They gave us 3 packs of Detergent Powder (around 120 g.), 2 bars of jumbo soaps and some fabric conditioners and dish-washing liquid as well :)) We played a game at their booth also. The game was forming a tower using the champion bars but unfortunately, my mother didn’t won. Hahaha. Okay, lezz move on! :3
Poses on the camera! <3 This booth was the Lucky Me booth. They got so many pakulo and it was fun! :D Actually I got shocked when someone just grabbed my arm and said that “Hi ate, tara punta ka na sa stage. Magsasayawan tayo, tara! Masaya ‘to. *insert bonggang smile here*" At first, I was like: WHAAAAT?! MEEE?! DAAANCE?! SERIOUSSSLLLY???!!! But then my mom told me that I should go, that I should dance! Hahaha. She told me not to be KJ. And so, I danced! Hihihi :33 I’m such a good daughter, yknow. :))
Anyhoo, at the end of the dance showdown, luckily… I won daw. I got a new tote bag from Lucky Me that time. Consisting of 6 packs of Pancit Canton, 6 Noodles, 2 Minute Maid Bottles, Dutchmill yogurts thingy, etc. (puno nanaman! :D)
Notice the Lucky Me tote bag there? The white one! That was filled with Lucky Me products and I was like… okay, it is worth the dance. Lol. Anyhoo, we roamed around the place up until we found the Pantene Booth. And there, I got my free hair spa! Yay! :33 They also blow dry my hair and gave me a paper bag consist of 2 Pantene Shampoo Bottles, Pantene Conditioner Sachets, Pantene Hot Oil Treatment Sachets and as well for the Rejoice and Head & Shoulders.
Results. From the frizzy, dry hair I got due to the long trip to a bit straight and a shiny hair one :) Thanks to Pantene! <3
The Pepsi booth, Del Monte Booth (which is full of pineapples!) and the CDO Booth.
Then 11:30 am comes. Everybody is having a roll call to be at the lunch venue of WTC. Anyhoo, can you see the 4th photo clearly? I wasn’t able to take pictures kasi that time at the front so I don’t got a decent photo of Alex Gonzaga. Yes, that is Alex Gonzaga :)
We were designated at the 180th table. Creys. :< </3 The stage was so layooo!
After eating my lunch, what I did is to go at the very front of the stage wherein Iya, John Prats and many other stars were like the host of the day. I was like a paparazzi the whole time because it was my first time to see John Prats and Iya Villania too. :3 Iya was a very gorgeous girl and John was a very handsome one but he was shorter than Iya. He is short. Huhuhu.
And then, after 5 hours of taking pictures here and there, I came to a point that its like… I don’t like capturing photos anymore. (that time!) So what I did is to go back at the 180th table then watched thru the monitor + DLP. There was a lot of stars actually all coming from GMA 7 when I decided to go back at my seat. Its like the whole Bubble Gang cast were there. From Michael V to Ruffa Mae to Moymoy Palaboy. But yeah, I got bored kasi and I was tired na :))
Then after an hour, we decided to go home na :) It was already 3 or 4 pm when we leaved WTC. We already arrived at home around 7 to 8 pm because it was traffic and of course, its too far from home. But the haggardness you’ll feel and everything would be lost easily once you rest and once you reminisce the things you brought home. Not the material things but the fun and the enjoyment :) Hihi :3
Anyweiz, we got a H-U-G-E duffle or strolley bag after the bazaar :) It was filled with the freebies we got earlier and surprisingly, there was another 3 plastic bags inside filled with goodies. In short, the Suy Sing event was really a bonggels one. And because of that? I cannot wait for the next successful years brought to us by Suy Sing. :)
Rainy afternoon *o* Nothing much to blog right now. And uhm, my Suki Day Bazaar experience would be up next! I still need to make a photoset kasi so that the photos will not be as heavy as the usual uploads I share. Hihi :3 Anyhoo, here’s my day in bullets :33
- Woke up at around 5:30 am. Leaved our house for about 6:30 am.
- Then, arrived around 6:58 am. 2 mins. left, then I would be late! Huhuhu :( I’m that a good girl at school. Lolololjk. (First day na first day of 3rd quarter, then onti na lang late na ko. Whuuuut. Hohoho. I sleep kasi last night around 11:30-12:00. *Because I can’t sleep! :<*)
- Had our rosary prayer, get things on our locker and finally start the class out.
- Hours had passed and viola! It’s recess time :D
- Didn’t ate too much tho because my classmate named Paulo had this celebration thingy for the Mr. and Ms. Siena Pagent. He treated us with 2 boxes of 16-inch pizzas from Pizza Hut! Woohoo. *u*
- Then our chemistry class went to a talk show / ’chizmax hour’ / free time, etc.
- —-AND THE PARTY STARTED. YAY!—-
- Then we had our Afternoon Assembly. :D
- Then… Filipino time! Then next is AP time! So, hello antok. Huhuhu :( I’m so baaad.
- And yeaaah, hours had passed again like yeah. (Lol, it’s like a line of the song. The one with so many ‘yeahs’. Hahaha.)
- Then dismissal! Favorite part of the day. >:) Hmm, we were dismissed around 4:40 pm. But I went home around 5:40 pm, I think. We were making tambay at the corridor for 1 hour. Lol. But uhm honestly, we were waiting for our some other friends. Because they were called on a one particular meeting regarding about the mentors’ day. (Ask me on my ask box if you are exciting to know what’s that for! Hee :3)
- But uhm finally, I ended up going home with Christina before my other friends arrived :)) It was late already na kasi and I was rushing home too because of the PBB Unli Day, but sadly… I wasn’t able to watch it. :(
SuperSale Bazaar Experience
To start this post, I would like to say that this is my very first bazaar experience slash ‘tumblr-thing-power-bazaar-experience’. The tumblr-thing-power*dot dot dot*(…) means that this is my very first bazaar experience thru the power of Tumblr and of Multiply and Facebook—in short, bloggers and online shops! :)) Hihihi :3 Anyhoo, I didn’t took a lot of pictures today. Maybe because I am not feeling well and my mood was kinda blank for the last few hours ago. Hmmkay, lezz move on! >:D
Sorry if you found the photos boring to look at. Hahaha. I was not in the mood to take pictures that time :)) Moving on, this are just some of the deliciously-looking-and-tasting pastries of Sophie’s Mom. I’ve heard that their pastries was sooo awesome and it is worth the price so I gave it a try for the Moshi Ice Cream. The 4th photo. Hihi :3
(insert sad face here for having no more photos at the bazaar)
And the comments on their site is sooo true! The Moshi Ice Cream was one of the most great tasting Moshi Ice cream everrr! As in, everrr~ IDK if I am correct but they have this Mochiko; a rice flour coated with a choco powder(?) and inside was a cold and a sweetie twist of Nutella. They were priced for 30 php each (yes kinda pricey but it was soooo worth it! I swear, you guys would like it too! :D)
And there! Back to the bazaar, we already arrived at the WTC at around 1 pm. There was a lot of participating online shops on Facebook and Multiply. Most of them have really their own business and some of them are bloggers like Camille Co, Lissa Kahayon, Laureen Uy, Nikki Sunga, Anne Solomon, Nicole Santos, etc.
Seriously, I want to have photo opp. sana last few hours ago with Nicole Santos, Lissa Kahayon, Nikki Sunga and Anne Solomon. Kaso I was too shy talaga and IDK what happened :)) I was so STARSTRUCK-ed siguro and that made me feel like, “Oh my, are you sure you’ll gonna do this Rhea? Like, you’re going to ask to have some pictures with *insert name of the blogger here*? Ohmy Ohmy Ohmmmmy!”. Naaah! I’m very nagsisisi talaga that I don’t even have a photo of myself on the WTC, kahit solo pic lang. Hahaha! But, :(((( that’s life. :<
Anyways, I got somewhat distracted on the booths din kasi. They actually don’t differ to each other’s booth (but they are so plenty. They look awesome. The look cute :3 and… *back to the bolded part*some only lang naman, not lahat. And its my opinion!) because when it comes to clothes… you can see one on the other booth/s. Same style/s, same fabric/s, and almost same everything. Like for the bangkok dress/es which cost around 680 php. And then, when you will try to explore more booths out there, you’ll find another one sold for 400 php, 350 php. So, I ended not to buy anything on dress/es, skirt/s, necklace/s of any sort/s, feather headband/earring, new top/s or bottom/s. Name it! Hihi :3
Hmm, we can never tanggi siguro the fact na ‘this is the trend!' & 'that is a trend!' are the main reasons why those booths have almost the same item on the next next booth around them. Hahaha! So, yun. My actual main point or reason why did I go there naman is to experience what would I feel like if I will go to bazaar, meet new friends/people/bloggers :)
Hmmkay, and as for the things I shop today:
That, maunti. :( Hahaha. I forgot to buy the ballers I saw din and the blazer. Huhuhu :( But, I’ll order online nalang! :)
- 2 new flats from Katie
- 1 underwear set from Charis (I will give this to my cousin, lol.)
- Guitar Connector Ring from Annacessories
- Dream Catcher from the boothmate of Nicolethedressupdoll. (Which I find very interesting to know what’s her name and… her blog! :3)
- Splatter top from Lissa Kahayon’s Booth
Guitar Connector Ring for 90 php.
Dream Catcher for 50 php. Imagine if the feathers are color pink too. Hahaha! :”>
And as for the top from Lissa Kahayon. Mehehe :3 Thinking of DIY tho, how could I make this tank top into a bonggels TOP?
The flat shoes that cames into a pouch…
The shoes has its ability to fold because the material used for it was light. Its very handy that make me fancy to buy two pairs. Hihi :3 They were priced for 599 php each. Tho, I can buy frollics shoes online for 250 php each only. Hahaha. (But honestly, ngayon ko lang naisip yun! Sayang pera. Lol.) And, theeeereee. :D As for the last pics.
The SuperSale Bazaar Pouch. :3 Hee~ <3 You can get this pouch whenever you’ll buy ticket. Mehehe :D
End of my experience, up until next time! :D
