HAUL: H&M Black Lace Blouse

I still can't believe I was able to get my hands on this top! I was walking around the tiangge area of Greenhills and spotted this from a store named Plus Size (I know I'm on the plus size already due to my knee surgery haven't been visiting the gym for a year now). I knew it from afar that I like this top, from the metallic embellishments, to the style of the sleeves, to the fabric itself, I know I gotta have it! So then I asked if I could see if it fits me. Lo and behold, it fits me perfectly! So here's the scary part, I know plus size clothes aren't that cheap-o because 1-it eats up more fabric, 2-there's only few shops that sells plus sizes. So i asked how much the top was, the lady smiled and said Php100 po. It's like I just hit the jackpot! I was like WHAT??? Php100 for that super cute top? So, i paid right away and left the store in a flash. I was telling it to my friend and showed a picture to her, she said that's an H&M top and she has the same exact blouse. So, yep there you have it an H&M Black lace top that's worth Php100 from greenhills tiange. (I just hafta include the pink spaghetti strap so you'd have an idea on the lace details).

Do you have a hitting-the-jackpot moment in tiangge's/bazaars too? I love to hear from you! I think it's a contest between us girls to find a gem out of bazaars especially if we know the real worth of it like this one.

This is my first Kimmidoll. Her name's Ai and she represents femininity. I fell inlove with it's simplicity (and how easy to draw them). I am in a new quest of collecting all of them. See that cute cylindrical tube beside her? That's my new paste! Yes a paste! I just love how it is packaged and it's pink! I have this (every girl is addicted to pink and anything that glitters) addiction with the color PINK. And why would I want that paste? You see, I carry a thick notebook (which i made from scratch, it deserves a separate post) around me (that's what all designers have in common we carry notebooks/sketchpads/notepads around and a pencil with eraser most of the time) I sketch, draw, write and most of the time pastes ideas in it. Sort of my moodboard notebook. And since I want all my stuff pink I can't help but purchase that cute tube of paste. Isn't it uber cute? 

Do you also collect Kimmidolls? Which doll do you like best?

That's it for now~

FOOD: Banana Leaf Experience

We were looking for Penang Hill (I love their Thai Beef Salad, and malaysian Wraps) @ the Promenade, GH  but sadly the moved out (or closed down I don't know the real deal behind that). So we tried out Banana Leaf since they also offer Thai Cuisine.

Start Here

Hello blog world! 

I finally gave into this whole new world of blogging. I have been reading tons of blogs lately and I couldn't help but notice a lot of good bloggers around. I find it fascinating to see tips, secrets, recommendations, how-to's, recipes, style, etc. This has been a dilemma for me for like months now, if I should or should not create my own corner in this blogging world. I know I'm not really that good on words and there would always be english teachers wannabe those who are good in this language who'd try to grade every entry I'll post. Plus the biggest fear of not having followers/friends/subscribers and the like. All the negative thoughts against the urge of having my own blog and sharing my thoughts and whatnots. Ofcourse I didn't let those ugly, pessimistic thoughts win me over, instead I braved myself and set up one. Hence you (if there's a you or maybe it'll be just me for a couple of months) won't have anything to read at this moment. 

So to celebrate my first entry I made myself a bowl of carbonara and a glass of soda~ Yum! Cheers!

Too much flash on my pasta, the bacon bits are nowhere in sight.

That's it for now, I'll be back with tons of stuff to share. From fabrics, to make ups, food, sewing techniques, to making your own headpiece, anything I think that's worth sharing.
