For Halloween, friends and I all flocked to Cubao X for Meiday Mayhem. Unlike past Meiday parties, I had to go to this one early because I did not want to deal with long lines and bouncers. I also wanted to catch my friends, The Strangeness, play (their set was slated at 8pm but they ended up playing at a later time)!
I don’t know where my days go. It’s Friday and I’m sitting here, thinking of the week that was, and nothing stands out; nothing sticks to me save for the exhaustion I feel when I wake up every morning at 930am (I’m back to my old ways, being really bad at this waking up early thing). I really do not know what I do with my time and it just feels so unsatisfying, this daily grind.
Oh oh oh: my bedroom mirror broke (the one I’ve had since I was in high school… so it’s at least a decade old) Tuesday morning. Exciting times.
I had a pretty busy long weekend but laziness reared its ugly head in and I didn’t take any (interesting) photos. As usual, Sunday was spent recovering from Saturday drunkies so I was really glad Monday was a holiday because I had a list of things I needed to do.
Today is a happy day! I’ve been feeling miserable lately, mostly due to the rain (it makes me ronery!) and the fact that I haven’t worked out in over a week (lacking endorphins, yo). Fortunately, the shoes I ordered from Lovely Shoes last week and the La Riche Directions semi-permanent hair dye I bought off ebay ~2 weeks ago both arrived today! I have yet to open the box from Lovely Shoes so I’m not sure if they are worth the $52 I spent, heh (I’m cheap, OKAY).
Meanwhile, I googled La Riche Directions reviews and I’m a bit disappointed to learn that these fade quickly! Two or three washes and they’re gone! This is alarming because I wash my hair everyday so I guess I’ll have to forgo shampoo for a bit. I’ve been meaning to give No Poo a try, anyway (unnecessary, since I use organic shampoo from HHN but I wanna give it a shot. Still waiting for my shampoo for thinning hair for women). Still— talk about buyer’s remorse; I really should learn to google BEFORE purchasing. I should have gone with Manic Panic (roughly around the same price range) or Special Effects.
Oh well, charge it to experience.
Thrifted crop top I’ve had for FOREVER but never got around to wearing ’til today (the buttons are heart-shaped <3), black lace skirt from ebay, boots from ebay. I have a love-hate thing for this cropped top: I like that it looks like something my grandmother would wear but I hate that the collar won’t sit still. I got it for fifty pesos so I’m not really complaining.
Meanwhile, I am starting to dislike these boots.
It was sunny when we arrived in Cebu Thursday afternoon but it had started to drizzle when our cab pulled into Kukuk’s Nest’s driveway in Lahug City (I did not take note of how long the ride was but it’s pretty far from Mactan-Cebu International Airport). After checking in and settling in, my friends headed to the hostel bar while I stayed behind to fix up a bit, connect to the internet, and order online flowers. The rain had gotten considerably stronger and this is what greeted me when I went to the main entrance.
