Ho hum..

My train of thought hasn't been that impressive for the longest time. I recently followed The Capricious Club, and again, I am s0o0o0o0o inspired, and at the same time, dying with envy. Envious because of the fact that my writing skills suck. Bigtime. Ugh. (There really are times that I feel that I have a knack in writing, and feel that I'm doing good, then I read others' posts, and then get jealous of their talent. Poor me. Arte lang. LOL)

I started reading from the oldest ones (well, I followed her a week or so ago and didn't get to browse those :P), and I have stumbled upon some of her posts about having dilemma/s on wearing what you want vs. what other people would think. And it just made me realize that that was one of the major reasons why I was ever so scared to experiment with my clothes (the weather is just on 2nd place :P).

For me, your clothes, or your style more importantly, just like the other things that matter to you, should have a story to tell. No matter how cliche-ish this may sound, what you wear/how you wear it reflects your personality, or maybe a part of it.

I always thought that I wouldn't/shouldn't care less to/of what most people think of me, but it just hit me, that there was still this part of me that was a scaredy cat from other people's opinions. And, that part of me, has just been thrown out the door, this very moment. :)

Nikita..


Have you ever wondered what it's like to be a spy? Or an assassin? Kicking serious a**, firing & dismantling guns, you know, all those undercover stuff. I've always did, that's why when I saw the trailer of Nikita, I was oh-so-thrilled.

The story revolves around Division, a secret, government-funded organization that has eventually performed operations out of their own gain, rather that what they claim: to serve their country. They recruit young people with troubled backgrounds, whom they train to be their agents. And their expertise: hand to hand combat, fire arms, infiltration, extraction, assassination. Nikita, a Division agent gone rogue, has devised a plan to take the black ops unit down, especially Percy, the man behind all the evil.


After 3 years of hiding, she has finally resurfaced. She trained Alex, a young woman she saved from the dark world of drug addiction & sex labor, to be her mole, and together, they will tear Division apart, piece by piece, mission by mission.


The series stars Maggie Q, as Nikita. The best agent in Division, and who was the first to get out of the organization. Ready to fight, but is hot, beautiful, and in style all the time; the attributes of a perfect spy..






I've read some reviews about Maggie being not fit for the role, but I beg to disagree. The girl really does good with the fight scenes (I've read that 98% of her stunts were all done by herself!), she actually has been trained by Jackie Chan at the young age of 17. She also is an epitome of gorgeousness (is there even such a word? LOL), and is oozing with sex appeal, some kinda like an Asian version of Angelina Jolie (well, for me she is). She definitely gave justice to the role, from having starred in action movies like Naked Weapon, Live Free or Die Hard, and Mission Impossible III, I bet playing Nikita hasn't been that much of a challenge for her anymore.

Another lead character is Shane West, playing the role of Michael, who was Nikita's trainer inside Division, someone she truly trusts. Upon Nikita's escape, he eventually leads the taskforce to take her down, but of course, he had trained her very well that he himself had a hard time catching her, or maybe he just let her get away everytime? Following a series of events, they wind up in each other's arms, and hand in hand, they will share the same goal: destroy Percy's black boxes and bring Division to hell. At first, I really didn't think that he & Maggie would click because they didn't seem to have chemistry. Probably because they didn't have much scenes together during the earlier part of Season 1, and it seemed like Michael was wanted to hit on Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca), Nikita's protege.
Season 2 recently started, and too bad I'm not able to watch it yet because of work. Wish that DVDs would soon come out so I can do my Nikita marathon every weekend. :)

Make up session cum Photo session :)

Since dress down was declared for the entire month of August, me & my colleagues were thrilled to dress up to work. We had a long weekend due to September 5th being Labor Day (in the US, that is.), I sent a group message that everyone should come in to work va va voom that Tuesday. Well, our batchmate-cum-stylist-cum-make up artist wasn't in the mood that day that he didn't bring his make up tool kit and camera. So we had to postpone it to Wednesday. Well, that Wednesday, I woke up a bit late so I had to hurry I just threw my basic outfit on. Ugh.

Anyway, our batch's make up professionale, Jake, told me that he's going to have a photoshoot with his friend, Anne, who is an amateur photographer. He invited me to come, and of course, being the vainest cam -whore that I am, I said yes, in less than a heartbeat.

We went through the make up session at the office, of course right after FINISHING OUR TASKS FOR THE ENTIRE DAY (defensive? LOL), then we headed to QC after the shift for a photoshoot.

Here are the pics taken at the office:

Quote of the day..



 "I revealed too much, too soon..
I was emotionally slutty."

Bembang: Silver Edition. LOL

Bembang (verb) = get caught doing something wrong. "Nabembang ako ni Mudakchina kanina.."


Yesterday's shift was s0o0o0o0o crazy. I did something wrong (work related) and our boss got copied on the email. It was kind of a big deal, and believe it or not, I got kinda nervous.


Well anyway, before that stressful part of my day (or night, for most of you out there), I was feeling really good that I went out of my way and kind of dressed up a little bit for work (we are still on dress down mode, meaning we're not required to wear corporate clothes yet :P until September 6th).


What I wore last night were hand-me-downs, actually, but I would like to call them as 'gifts' instead (c'mon, Universe, gimme more!! :D)




(Silver jacket was 'robbed' from my mum. LOL Beaded necklace was a gift from her, as well. Heels given by one of my officemates, Erika -thanks so much, Dearie! I just love how it's so comfy! Also thanks to sister Don for the pics :P)
