ondoy, what have you done?

today, september 26, typhoon "ondoy" has wreaked havoc in metro manila. omg! heaven help us!

update: sept 27 (sunday), i am stuck in makati. took refuge in marco's place in salcedo coming from unitel in reposo where we were shooting for a TVC. my sister who was stuck in shaw yesterday morning is still on the road as i update this blog. my mom got safely home this morning after being stranded in school yesterday and she told me thru text that our house in sta. mesa is submerged in water. the flood is chest deep.

honestly, i don't know what to do anymore. i feel restless. i am worried sick about my family. i know they need an extra hand to save whatever needs to be saved. they're tired, wet and famished.

lord, please help us! i am fervently praying that everything will be alright.

someone's using MET

Rihanna's skin seems fairer. I wonder if she uses MET :-)

P.S. I love her shoes and bubuyog shades

i don't know with you...

...but I don't think I am that insane for chocolates to try this one...

A Chocolate Pao!

(sold exclusively at Mini Stop)

vanity kicks in

I was never vain about my skin unlike other girls who'd die if they miss their weekly spa appointments. I can count with my fingers the times i went to a spa for a body scrub nor have i let a dermatologist touch my face but that doesn't mean i don't really take care of it. I have always found these treatments LAVISH. Even all those creams and lotions I find EXPENSIVE. Either I wait for the next "balikbayan boxes" to arrive having those Estees, Cliniques, Niveas, Bath and Body Works or I ask my mom to buy it for me.

Not until I woke up one Friday morning and I found my self staring long and worried at the mirror! Dear heavens, I am starting to have fine lines under my eyes! Marco was right, stress and unhealthy lifestyle are starting to take its toll on me.

The night before while we were having drinks, he took a close look at my face. He said I look tired and some fine lines are showing under my eyes. To my defense, I said they're not wrinkles, it's just smudged make-up. Secretly though, I was starting to worry. Weekend came and I hit the mall to find an anti-ageing cream.

All of them were saying the very same thing -- IT'LL MAKE YOU LOOK YOUNGER and FAIRER after XX amount of days. Darn! Not only were they expensive, their promises were too good to be true. I know, I know...I should know better since I am in the industry that can sell shit to the unassuming consumers.

After much contemplation, I finally gave in. I settled for Pond's Age Miracle Dual Eye Therapy Collagen + Chamomile Extract. The Collagen Cream works for the upper eye to reduce fine lines and crow's feet. The Chamomile Extract reduces puffiness and brightens dark circles and the good thing is IT WAS 50% OFF. How could you not resist?

Well I hope it'll work together with my Olay Total Effects Day Cream. :-P

insane in the membrane...

...insane in the brain! ackk! i feel like my veins want to break out of my temples and explode. migraine attack!

it's already 9:17pm...for crying out loud, IT'S A FRIDAY and my work is far from done. i have yet to shoot out emails, fix my schedules for the week, update WIP reports, download and save files, finish a deck...and the laundry list goes on...

If only I could be Barbie (in this pic) who can still smile despite being drilled, I'd be in her shoes in a heartbeat!

kanye west is a douche bag

how immature... to steal the limelight from a country lass who just won the "best female video" award which is actually her very 1st for MTV VMA and diss her just like that. taylor swift may not have that oomph like beyonce or kathy perry or lady gaga but she doesn't deserve being outdone on stage when it was her time to shine.

i am not a fan of taylor swift but i did feel for her after seeing this video...

kanye west may have made waves in the music industry but that doesn't give him the right to diss other budding artists. You don't need to be educated to know what's right or wrong. Such an a*s#oLe!

Anyway, Beyonce gave Taylor another chance to thank her fans when the former won "Best Video" for Single Ladies.

The douche bag finally came to his senses and apologized. Whatda?! The damage has been done Kanye!

thirty, flirty and thriving... the 13 going 30 movie goes. well, actually that line doesn't even have a connection with what i want to blog about. haha!

marco will be 30 by the 11th already and i am running out of time and ideas to surprise him. i was supposed to make their band play before the rockeoke set at 121 this coming thursday as a salubong. unfortunately though, their drummer has work on thursday so the grand plan is now scrapped. i am left with NO PLAN B to work on. acck!

i am so stressed already. i know i should have planned it way ahead but my workload just keeps eating my free time.

i am in dire need of help! i will go insane.
