was all giddy and excited to visit the mall for a quick shopping.. by quick i mean cheap and uncomplicated shopping. i prepared myself for the upcoming battle with the crowd... shoulder versus shoulder, toes to heels, crispy paper bags versus plastic bags.. Sometimes just imagining the massive crowd makes me wanna reconsider goin to the mall but heck! its 2 days before christmas so i hafta deal with it

to see the hallways clean and silent is a delight but after 1 hour everything went chaotic... or maybe im just exaggerating.

More often than not, this is the same old scenario you should always expect to witness in every godamn mall built here in Manila.

Metrobank can be a bitch sometimes.. Next time , ima withdraw everything! i was super scared, i still have 1k in my account but the machine is such a headache for not dispensing cash,


today was a great challenge, mentally, physically, and mathematically.. lol.. as always, i only carried a few amount of cash.. We rummaged the whole place for some cheap finds...
i honestly apologize for posting another entry which involves a trip to the mall. Maybe next time I'll try ta be more bizaare.. say a trip to India or a visit to my derrma. lol

its quite odd that when i was still a student, i was thrice as rich as i am today despite the fact that i'm employed. Back then i would buy a bottle of Mario Badescu Drying lotion and a tinted moisturizer from Smashbox altogether but look at me now, everything is a downhill slide. fROM RUSTAN'S to Landmark dept store hahaahaha.. so what!?


well i should be thankful that i am still capable of buying a lil something something for my loved ones..

amidst the crazy atmosphere, i accidentally bumped at JP aka Misterpretender of Chictopia.com at Topman. I smiled at him first 'coz i recognized him then I was surprised to know that this posh lady carrying a Chanel purse was her mom. bUT OF COURSE!

he even said that her mom knows me thru Chictopia.. *blush*

i was a follower since 2008 during the time when i was still a newbie in the site. Ive always loved his Birkins, Rick Owens boots and his perfectly chiseled biceps! i think there was never a time that he had worn a brandless apparel

my diy jacket... pins plus chains... voila! random look again!!


i so cant believe that some rich and fab lady would like my trashy aesthetic. oh well,it definitely made my day. haha

    some of the brands consigned in the RAMP
    has retail outlets in greenhills and sell those
    stuff at 10-20% less.
    But I think I like SoFa's Retail LAb more.

    Its really hard to not spend these days,.
