As most of you know, Philippines was hit by Typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana). As you read this, there are hundreds of dead/missing people and thousands who need your help.

Woke up early for my weekend morning walks with my self-proclaimed bestfriend (Hullo Abbie!) and had a few hours of rest before checking my to-do list. This is me in my lazy sunday morning mode:
I’m currently reading ‘Little Earthquakes’ by Jennifer Weiner. I adore her writing style.
Crocheting like an old lady. As my friend said, I only need cats to complete the look.
This is what I’m working on! I’m planning to do lots and lots and lots of these! Aren’t they purdy??
And with that, I finished my quick visit to lazy mode and went ahead to my sorta eventful day. If you want a quick summary of my day, here it is: Bumped into Paolo (He’s a great photographer so visit his site!) on my way to Makati for my gown fitting for a friend’s wedding. Went to Cubao for a quick lunch and watched ’17 again,’ which was surprisingly good. Went back to Manila area and shopped for some sewing stuff. Met with a friend to go to a wake. Saw one of my college friends at the wake. Chat chat. Ate dinner at the kabab place near my house. Went home. Read comments, was featured in Esme’s blog and is currently writing this entry.

Sometimes, all you really need is attitude!
As posted earlier, me and some friends went to an exhibit opening this Thursday at the Yuchengco Museum [RCBC Plaza, Makati]. The photos were all perfectly jaw-dropping! If any of you guys are able to visit, please do! Exhibit is displayed from Feb26 to April 29 2009.
The pictorial language of the respective photographers, the model, her or his pose as well as the clothing, the background, and the technical quality of the photography take the viewer far beyong the respective ‘ins’, fads and trends of fashion, giving information of extraordinary interest about the so-called Zeitgeist (“spirit of the times”), about the changes in society, codes of morality, and the feelings and longings of people at a certain point in time.
