The Socks (Part Deux)

A few months ago we've posted a homage to one of my favorite socks (see post here) and I've loved the idea so much I basically pressured my sisters to wear these and raise their legs so I can take shots of our new socks. Oh, the lengths we take for pretty pictures. :)

Photos by Nina

These are some photos from UST's end-of-400th-celebration (it was a 1 year celebration!) where some people were required to dress up in  Filipiniana costumes. Nina can't help but snap photos of some random people ala streetstyle lang! The first photo is Nina (third from left) with her friends and a security guard a.k.a. gwardya sibil who were all required to greet them in Spanish. Happy 400th to all our Thomasian friends out there! :)

Yay, my exams are finally over! Can you see haggardness all over my face? This is me after consuming coffee + Bacchus + Alcohol yesterday, which was my last day of exams and of course attending the requisite post exam drinking + videoke session where we basically sang our hearts out in the hopes that our videoke grade will be the result of our real exam. I'm currently back to work after my exams which of course meant tons of pending work since I've been absent for almost over a week. Yet, here I am being a rebel and all and blogging instead of starting to do what I'm basically paid to do.

So anyway, on to the outfit. The dress is actually Nina's grad pic dress she got last November which is on sale now at Zara. Don't you hate it when you buy something for the full price then later finding out it's on sale a month after buying it? I feel like we've been cheated! Oh well. The shoes are from Aldo which I got on sale as a post Christmas gift to myself. I tripped two times while wearing this today, luckily I survived but it was extremely embarrassing because I always have this loud shriek when I trip which attracts even more unwanted attention. Gaaaah.

Ok, so I really have to work now. I'll catch up on everybody's blogs tonight. :)

These are our last photos of our Hongkong trip. Personally, I'm still hungover and lusting for another trip anywhere abroad which I hope (fingers crossed) will be this summer :) So anyway, on to the pictures:

1. Me wearing sweater from Hongkong, pants from Lee (where I always get my pants since I like how they fit me plus it's cheaper than other brands) shoes from Zara and Mulberry bag.
2. Nina wearing sweater from Mango, Zara leather jacket, Streetbeat high waist shorts (her fave!), stockings from Topshop and Dr. Marten's boots.
3. Close up of Nina's stockings where people thought the hearts were real tattoos. Some people have the strangest imaginations!
4. Pat (or as we call her Pattypus) wearing sweater from Forever 21, leather jacket from Zara, Jeans from Mango, shoes from Adidas and bag from Forever 21.
5. Pat's winged Jeremy Scott shoes take one. She's been in love with this the moment it came out around 3 years ago and finally she found it over at Adidas Greenbelt.
6. Take two. Socks from Forever 21.
7. Flowers :)
8. Monalisa made out of bread. Crazy.
9. Random cute little kid we couldn't resist taking a picture of. To Kpop fans, doesn't he look like a little Uknow Yunho from TVXQ?
10. Scary shot of the cemetery.
11. Where we got lost. LOL.

These are our pictures from Ocean Park. Apparently, Ocean Park has just been renovated and we were extremely shocked and pleasantly surprised with the changes. Too bad, we only got to go to 3 rides since each ride takes about an hour to wait and line up plus we got there around lunch time where everyone's basically shoving each other around all cranky and tired from standing. But that really dampen our spirit (we're very resilient that way) especially after riding the Hair Raiser which, I kid you not, left me with tears in my eyes! I'm actually not a big fan of roller coasters but I do have a personal rule that I have to try a ride at least once and this is probably the scariest ride I've ridden and the only one where I teared up right after. And don't even ask about what I look like in the picture (the one they take when you're riding) because it is BEYOND embarrassing. Harharhar.

Anyway, I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend!

Happiest Place on Earth

When they say Disneyland is the happiest place on Earth, I couldn't agree even more. It's our third time to go there and every time I contemplate on packing my bags and actually working at Disneyland. The only problem is, I have no talent at all. I can't sing, I can only do "clubbing" dance (which is essentially moving my hips from left to right while bobbing my head ) and I can't speak Cantonese. Maybe I can be a mascot? Or the clean up lady?

Anyway, moving on from my unrequited dreams, these are our pictures for Day 2. There's actually a lot more pictures but these are some of our favorites. Nina is wearing a bonnet, sweater, scarf, stockings and socks from Forever 21, cape from Zara, shorts from Streetbeat, boots from Dr. Martens and bag from Kate Spade. Pat is wearing a leather jacket from Zara, sweater, skirt, scarf, tights and socks from Forever 21, bonnet (which she got for free!) from sixty eight and booties from Call it Spring. I'm wearing a coat, sweater and boots from Zara, Forever 21 skirt and leggings and gray socks from Hongkong.

Wait, I just have to tell you first the story about Pat's free bonnet. We were at the mall across the Mira Hotel walking around when we entered a store called sixty eight and this lady comes up to us and gives us all cards that we couldn't understand. Pat needed to buy a bonnet and so she picked one up and headed to the counter and presented the card that the lady gave us and when she was giving the money to the casheir, he said the bonnet was for free. Apparently, the card was for a discount of HKD98 for every purchase and since the bonnet was for HKD98 it was free. WHAT. THE. ACTUAL. EFFF. We looked at each other and grabbed more things (ok so we bought underwear since it was so cute and cheap) and had a discount of HKD98 for all our purchases. Happy happy joy joy.
