Understated

White 1
This week has been absolutely chaotic. Aside from juggling projects, I also had to go back and forth to Makati for work and errands. I really can’t imagine living in the South. The traffic is terrible and many people always seem mad and in a hurry. I honestly don’t know how they can stand commuting to Makati everyday. It takes real guts you know, especially if you’re wearing all white.

I wore this ensemble to a meeting a few days ago. I bought this midi skirt last year but I never had the chance to wear it. Besides, I was in good spirits so I felt like dressing up. There’s something really elegant about this color, no wonder brides always prefer a big white dress for their special day.

Commuting wearing this color is a different story though. I was always on the lookout for stains. Thankfully, nothing happened. But during my trip I was able to reflect on a lot of things. I really like having lots of alone time because that’s when I study people and think about life. Also, when you’re stuck in a bus full of people eager to go home, there’s not much you can do. I wondered if Metro Manila’s traffic situation is ever gonna improve. It’s worse every year, even though politicians vying for public office always promise they’re gonna fix it every election season. Of course they don’t.

All we get are band-aid fixes instead of permanent solutions, because it’s easier to steal money that way. I guess what this country needs is not only an expert on law and economics, but also a person who has conscience and a pure desire to uplift the nation. But I don’t think that person is here yet. Every candidate right now seems to have a hidden agenda.

I just wish the voting public will be more discerning this time. The current surveys are not looking good, but I’m still hoping for the best.

Goofy

When Jong and Chad taught me how to surf last year, we found out I was goofy-footed, meaning I use my right foot in front of the left when riding a board. Quite ironic, I thought, as the word is a complete opposite of my personality, according to many.

People think of me as a very serious person, even Chad before we dated. And I guess to a certain point, I am, but I can be really goofy when I’m really comfortable with the people I’m with.

I’m not afraid to look ugly as well. Hello, gummy face! Hahaha. A friend of mine calls me gummybears because I’d smile so wide my gums would always show. LOL. I like smiling, what can I do? I think it’s pointless to smile and act happy if you’re not genuinely happy.

And speaking of happiness, I was so excited when I saw these distressed studded high-waisted shorts and spike bracelet from Boutique De Reines in the mail last week. I knew they’d be perfect for my Baler beach trip with Chad. Of course, you’ll get the first dibs—I will be posting more photos of our trip here soon. 🙂

I love high-waisted shorts because they help emphasize the curves of my body. I gained a lot of weight recently, which went straight to my derriere  and thighs. My waist remained relatively small, so I knew these shorts are perfect for my body type. 🙂

Wore the spike bracelet with it for some added zest.
