  • Missing The Theater
    on May 15, 2011
    When I was a child (despite the fact that I, um, cannot sing or dance to save my life!!!) I used to do theatre performances. I loved productions...I used to play all sorts of roles and yes, even if I was often off-key in singing, I could get away wit...

  • Alternative Sleepwear and More
    on Apr 6, 2011
    I love sleeping in very loose and comfortable pajamas. No, I do not like night shirts and lingerie, just jammies. However, when I go on overnight trips and have to bunk with a roomie for the night, I kinda need something that doesn’t look too comfy...
  • Summer Cleaning
    on Mar 6, 2011
    Well, yes, I know it is technically called spring cleaning but given that we don't have spring here in the Philippines, I'll call it summer cleaning. Haha. Seriously, however, today I decided to attempt to put some order in my normally messy room.Giv...

  • Ceiling Fans And Dining Ambiance
    on Feb 26, 2011
    One of the things I look for when I eat out is comfort. While I may always say that I would pick fashion over comfort when I'm dressing up, when it comes to eating out, I don't like being stuck in a stuffy restaurant. I especially like restaurants th...
  • Scrubs...Not Just For Doctors :-)
    on Jan 2, 2011
    One of the things my friend, who is a physical therapist, keeps telling me is how comfortable it is to sleep in her scrubs. Sure, they're medical uniforms but since she is no longer with the company that issued those scrubs, she uses it for sleeping.

  • Statistics....my research Waterloo
    on Jul 10, 2010
    Today my friend and I were discussing why I still had not gotten my thesis done. Or research for that matter. One one hand, I really wanna get it done, but on the other, I really don't want to. Talk about ambivalence. I guess for one Statistics...

  • What's in the Rainbow's End?
    on Jun 30, 2010
    Sometimes I wish I could still believe in the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. That will definitely solve a lot of my money woes and let me have the power to purchase whatever I want, whenever I want :-) I don't really need much, but...
