Young and Wild and Free

Meet Puffpuff, my ultimate partner in college crime. She was there from the very beginning - I think we first met around a month after I graduated from highschool, when I still belonged to the v club - so yes, we go waaay back. My magic mirror, safeguard conscience, devil's advocate, emotional band aid, human blog... I can go on and on listing how she was and still is to me. She witnessed all my crucial college bitch fits, dramaramas, boy conquests and misadventures, drinking and hang over sprees, bad hair days, breakouts, me without make up, the crazy crash diets, my shining moments, my stupidities... she is one of the few people who truly knows me inside and out. We could've been married (we even connected our beds together) hahaha! The university equivalent of Pupols in hs, and the present 3G.

It's been more than a year since we've last shared our matrimonial bed (we would tease each other about celebrating our anniversary; March 30 if I'm not mistaken hahaha!), but up to now, I still get "Puff withdrawal episodes". Obvious ba? Kaya nga may ganitong post eh.
 So, in order to get my blast from the not so ancient past fix, let me list my top 5 Cocopuff memories:

5. Extreme sugar rush from Cowmoon's chocolate- themed debut. My gaz! We couldn't stop laughing!

4. There was this time when she was just glued to her pc singing along to pop songs blasting from her speakers - I was impressed really - how could she work on a paper while doing all that??? So I check up on her only to discover that she wasn't working on any paper at all - SHE WAS STARING AT SONG LYRICS SHE PASTED ON MS WORD!

3. Puff turning off all the lights in our room, then dancing to PCD's Buttons - yes, with exactly the same dance moves from the video.

2. The time we ended up shivering from our 2 day water detox stint - we were so weak we had to help each other get up from bed whenever we had to go to the bathroom.

1. Our daily morning routine: She wakes up at 4am to take a shower. I follow at 5am. Then we spend the next two hours (6-8am) blow-drying, ironing our hair and putting on make up for our first class. Yep, we did this every freakin' school day.

So Puff, if you're reading this, COME TO MANILA. SOON. Missing you tons!

The Fairest of All...

      Once upon a time in midwinter, when the snowflakes were falling like feathers from heaven, a queen sat sewing at her window, which had a frame of black ebony wood. As she sewed she looked up at the snow and pricked her finger with her needle. Three drops of blood fell into the snow. The red on the white looked so beautiful that she thought to herself,

"If only I had a child as white as snow, as red as blood, and as black as the wood in this frame."

And so I was born.

... wish I may, wish I might own these Manolos I wish tonight.

A sneak preview from the Shoe God's Autumn/Winter 2008-9 collection - I immediately fell in love with the PATOSO. Warrior craze-inspired, these babies are embellished with "metal discs that have have come out straight out of a crusader's suit of armor." 

I certainly won't mind doyning in hell in them.

Read My Lips

Today was definitely a better day than yesterday. Met up with G1 for lunch, a mani, and the usual hours and hours of g talk. It felt so good to be out, and getting a dose of oh-so-polluted Makati air made me feel quite normal again after rotting in the condo for the past five days. I love being in grad school, but there are just those days when my brain would rather process non-IR stuff.  Or when it wouldn't process anything at all. G1 - I'm extremely grateful. We sooo needed/deserve today's hot air. Plans needed for our term ender!


A kiss is the upper persuasion for a lower invasion.

If I didn't hand you an invite, stay out of my turf. 

1. You mess with my friends, you mess with me.
2. You mess with me, you mess your life. 

Unfortunately, you made the gravest mistake of commiting both. Lucky for you, I'd rather go shopping. Just make sure no more dirt reaches me in any lifetime, cause you won't be spared then. While I may be forgiving, I never ever forget. 

Tell me what you brag about and I'll tell you what you lack.
Spanish proverb

Did I strike a chord? Oops... I didn't mean to. Cut the crap and stop pretending to be pious. Yak all you want cause I don't give a shit. So what if it doesn't have to be emo for me? Does it emasculate you when girls are vocal about their wants and aren't afraid to point it out when spots have been missed? Wake up boy -only quality counts! If this unnerves you... if I unnerve you, it's time to hit the books some more and get lots of practice. 

Sissy. Tsk.

White Flag

And when we meet
Which I'm sure we will
All that was there
Will be there still
I'll let it pass
And hold my tongue
-Dido, White Flag

Ironic how the first post (used to rant&rave in Multiply) is about an ending.

Normally, I'm not the type of girl who takes 'no' for an answer. I'm also not the type who easily gives up. I know what I want and I'd do whatever it takes to get it.

90 something days.
I walk away - cool, composed, somewhat victorious - only to be pulled back.
Now he walks away.  Suddenly. Silently.
Completely victorious.

My ultimate fiasco.
So much for beauty, intellect, and charm.
Ego twice crushed.
Major sexual heartbreak.
