Shawties: Cafe Publico

I turned 18 yesterday. I'm finally legal~~ And to celebrate, lez have a bottle of.... WATER. Yes, water. After going around Greenhills for a while, a friend and I chilled at Cafe Publico in Promenade. I heard they serve some pretty mean ice cream <3 
me: "can I have some water?"
waitress: *gives us water in a wine bottle*
me: @0@ -is this what it's like to be legal?? Ask for water, they give you white wine???? oh wait.. it's water.. OHHH EEEMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM COOOOLL!!!!-

Straciatella gelato <3 mmm..

me forever alone playing chess by myself </3

Sources of amusement for kids. Katy and I actually played just for the hell of it. :)) We were amused. Kinda weird though coz me = 18. legal. adult. amused by stuff for children. -_- clearly not feeling the whole IM A LEGIT ADULT NOW thing. T'hell with that :)) there's so many things I need to cross out in my STUFF I MISSED OUT WHEN I WAS A KID list.

 Gives you buckets filled with chill vibes~ The decor actually contributed a whole lot to the cafe's success. I just ordered a gelato but I got soo HOWAAAWW with the whole ambiance that I would surely come back here again :)

random gate. I wonder if this actually leads to someplace. Narnia? :0

Nalunod na Bampira

Citta Sommersa~ (under the sea) Our grad ball <3 Had such an amazing night with all meh friends :) esp in the dancing part! It is, however, a sad night for all of us as well.. :< coz it's the last major event we had together as a batch :< haaayz. Sooner or later, it's gonna be graduation day and we will all be taking our separate routes toward our destinies. 

In other news, I had quite a lot of time preparing for ball. And as you all know, free time = photoshoot :D

 Dress by Michelle Lim~ I am a lobster. =) but the date of a friend of mine told me I looked like a vampire =)) I took it as a compliment

 My usual hair style: curls + bangs. I tried something different that day. I had my hair teased + soft waves at the ends. Just coz I feel like it :) Sometimes change is good. :) Makes you stray away from monotony.

I picked the dress up about 2 weeks before ball and I just hung it on my closet handle. Yesterday, when I took it out, a wild leather jacket from Zara appeared underneath. Apparently, someone hung my jacket there as well but I somehow just didn't notice/remember. 

Then POOOOOFFF! I had a great idea! Why not wear the sexy leather jacket? It matches my dress anyway~ :> :> :> And so I did. I was thinking.. EVERYBODY'S GONNA BE WEARING A DRESS AND THAT'S IT. I DON'T WANNA BE LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE, SO.. SMUG. :D 

People showered me with compliments naman. <3 I was literally all OH STOPP ITT, YOUUU~ <3 <3 =)) asdfgh bang bang bang

 Silver accessories to match the bead work on my dress :) 

Red velvet pumps by Charm Star. I honestly thought these heels would die on me but noooo~ They were able to survive the apocalypse that is my wild dancing. =))

Styling Session

 Creating a collection doesn't mean you just have to draw, construct and let the model wear your masterpiece. If only it were that simple, life would be so much easier.. but a lot less fun. Way back, I thought it would only be like this.. but when fashion designer Michelle Lim was mentoring me, she proved otherwise. There's sooo much things to do and to consider! @0@ I started with a bunch of ideas and ended up with a very VERY different outcome. My model friends were surprised coz they saw my sketches but their outfits are way different =))

Today, we had our styling session. It's when you let models fit the clothes and determine what else they're gonna wear - shoes, accessories, hair, make-up etc. And even til today, we tweaked some of the outfits to make em look better.

Le clothes hanging pretty on their rack

more~ I'm not posting other pictures here yet. I want it to be a surprise =)) no spoilers :)) just this. :>

Fitting room

Our mess =)) I have more bags of shoes, accessories and whatnot though. Didn't bother to take pictures =)) lez just say it's like one part of the room was flooded

Let's look at it this way. There's a girl. She has a blog. She brought a camera. She was bored waiting. What do you think she would do? Troll with her camera and the mirror? EXACTLY. =)) Logic..

Another thing.. This girl also brought some hats. Feeling so insane from all the stress, she started playing with em and got so aliw with the tiger head one. my gulay. So tired that I couldn't even smile properly. -_-

EHEHEHE cute albino tiger <3 It's very comfy and warm -u- an okay substitute for a much wanted and needed hug from ahemahemahemahemyouknowwhoyouarebutimnotsosureifustillreadmahbloghehe <3

So.. despite being so 9_9, I still enjoyed the experience of creating a collection. And even though Achi Michelle made me feel sooooo insecure coz she's soooooo awesome and I'm soooooo not, I'm learning sooo much from her and I'm so glad to have her as a mentor. :)

It has been an eye-opener for me. I saw reality. I saw that doing what I love may not always be so easy. Fashion may hate me at times but I'll forever love it. :)

It's not over yet. :> Next stop, PHOTOSHOOT!

Shawties: Spotlight on The Ronac Art Center

There's a very cool-looking building near my school that I wanted to visit for ages! I love contemporary art, esp. in architecture, and this building is a greeaatt example.

The Ronac Art Center: It has some restos outside. Inside, there's a huge basketball court and some shops. This place ain't that popular. As in only a few go there. So I wonder.. if there are people who actually go shopping there.. hmmm 

Spiral staircase + wall <3

From the inside of the court. It's labeled as PLAYGROUND. I thought there was a real children's playground inside. =))

View from the top. The place is mainly gray + wood but there are actually rainbow accents around. Like those chairs, for example. There are chairs with the colors of the rainbow scattered everywhere. Whatta cute twist to the monochrome theme~

A day in the life of.. WONGIE~

Some time ago, my friend Ann dared me to do the Your Day in Photos Instagram Challenge. It's when you take photos of what you're currently doing EVERY HOUR from the moment you wake up to the time you're gonna sleep. I ACCEPT. And yes, this is Blogger, not Instagram =) There's not always wifi wherever I go, okay? I chose this day coz I thought today's kinda interesting. I had some plans for today, like a styling session with my models BUUT that's postponed to another date. @_@ I figured I should still continue though coz I can't do this challenge on weekdays coz we can't take pictures during grad pracs :/ so yeaah~

A day in the life of me!

 10am: Since my styling session got postponed, I woke up kinda late. Around quarter to 11.. and boy, waking up by yourself is the most wonderful thing evaah! No pesky alarm clocks, no droopy eyes. AAAH~~~ I didn't wanna get outta bed so I cuddled with my stuffed pig Lechon for a while. I love weekends...

11am: Labeling debut invitations! YESSS they're heereee~ and I thought they're gonna arrive the week before the big day! I worry too much 8-|

12nn: My daddy suddenly called saying I have a lunch out with my sister and all. And so I rushed to dress up and ended up wearing this! :) I wore two of my favorite accessories :) The peacock necklace and the butterfly waistbelt <3 
animal print shirt from F21
60's mod skirt from F21
peacock necklace from Divisoria @0@
butterfly waistbelt from Zara

1pm: Lunch out with parents and sister at Alfredo's! Left - some pumpkin soup. It looks like an egg. LOL. Right - what was left of my baby back ribs and some unwanted carbs potato wedges. Looks like a savage beast feasted on the meat.. @_@

2pm: whatta lovely surprise to see Ann at the dentist today :) :) no photo ops daw with her. -_- faawwyynn. But here's the photo of the clinic =)

3pm: We went to this acupuncture place coz my daddy and sister badly need some needle work @_@ The place is kinda cool in a weird way =)) The outside is like a garden and there's a huge convent (?) across it, as seen in the picture on the right. Inside the clinic, it looks like a hospital but smells like a temple. =))

still 3pm: I got so bored that I played Temple Run nonstop =) lalalala~~

4pm: The monument in QC Circle. On my way home~ 

5 and 6pm: Continued labeling the invitations and now they're ready for distribution :) Well, for my guests, yeah. but as for family and my parents' friends, not yet :)) next time

7pm: prepared for tomorrow's meeting with the coordinators and lights/sounds supplier! And I chilled a bit with some good music -u-  I picked out songs to be played for the biiiig day too. Yeaah~ Chill AND productive.. -u-

8pm: Recently, I bought a new book :D I've been meaning to buy a book on pattern-making but I couldn't find a moderately priced one. </3 and then I saw this... I rejoiced. =)) Woohoo~ I'm learning~~~~~~ It won't be long til I can actually create articles of clothing from scratch and not by trial and error =))

9pm: I edited the photos for this blog entry. I'll probably be sleeping around midnight but due to a very high dose of boredom, I decided to blog tonight. :P I would have posted this a lot earlier if only I wasn't distracted by...

...this picture of my Alex Marshall. AHHAHAHAHAHAHAH OH EM. <3

10pm: blogging while still distracted =) no picture available

So that's it! These are some of the things I did today :) How fast time flies! And now, I'll probably just chill some more or dance to the music~ lalallaalala~

Singapore Photoshoot

Shops there close at around 10. SO EARLY. So what was I supposed to do after?? My parents stayed in another room. They sleep early too. My brother goes out at night. So now what? Sleep? NO WAY. Photoshoot? SURE :>

My airport outfit :) veerry comfyy. Yes, I was wearing a pajama top the whole day.. in public.. coz I'm cool like that B-) =)) 

See? It doesn't look like sleepwear =) or does it? I didn't receive any WTH stares from people, anyway :))

Pajama top from La Senza
Leopard print fedora from somewhere in Hong Kong
Striped Scarf from Oxygen
*I dunno which leggings I wore that day. haha :P

 Spring time :) Whatta jolly girl I felt when I wore this :) It's like I could just skip along a grass field while carrying a basket full of flowers.. =)) Lalalala~ 8D

V-neck shirt from Bench Body
Floral dress from F21
Straw fedora from F&H
Low cut Chucks

Jolly outfit but sly smile :0 GASP! Deception!

There was one night when my brother joined me. He didn't want those vain photoshoots I always do.. :< so he thought of something else. MONEY. He wanted to act like he's a total millionaire and stuff, so I told him to throw some money in the air. Unfortunately, we only had some small change in our wallets.. and now, he looks more like a magician summoning money, instead of white doves. =)) FAIL.
