So typically me..

My closet is running out of space.. I have lots of clothes that I don't get to use anymore.. Good thing I didn't buy too much preggy clothes because I knew that after giving birth I won't be able to use it anymore.. I got lots of maxi dresses that I can use during the summer..

I noticed that my closet is full of clothes and my big plastic boxes are already full of clothes. I also have two large suitcases that are full of clothes that I dont get to use anymore. Since I'm always at home, I don't get to use most of the clothes that I wear for gimmicks and fashion shows. I am always in tshirts and shorts and I am missing my "outfits".. I miss being fashionable! wah!

I was working on a blogging assignment for oDesk when I came across this site ( www.papyvore.com) and I really liked how the members used a certain theme to put up clothes and accessories together in a fashionable manner. So I picked some of the styles that I would usually wear and I might just create a set of my own with the clothes that I have here at home ;)
Boho Summer!
every drawing that i drew, was never ever as cute as you.

Odesk Manifesto

I am soo proud to be an Odesk-er s0 when they posted a job for their manifesto I applied right away and sent my video. I didn't think that they would pick my video because I was just inside the room and I was the one who took the video. So when Ms. Danalyn West sent me a message on Odesk asking me to do the job, I was ecstatic! hehe! Here it is guys!

The Joys of Giving Birth

When I gave birth I was awake but when she got out they took her to another room to suck the water out of her lungs and the doctors had to clean her up. So when they showed her to me, I had no recall of my first encounter with her....

When I was in the recovery room I was daydreaming about how my baby looked like or how big she was and if she was healthy. One of the nurses who assisted in my birth came to visit me and assured me that my baby was perfectly fine. She also told me that I already saw my little angel but I just couldn't remember because after all that pushing I was so exhausted that I fell asleep right away. Plus the drug kicked in so I was really groggy.

As soon as the nurses took me to my room I was ecstatic.. I thought I would be able to see my baby but they had to keep her in the nursery so that all the necessary tests can done. Good thing my best friends and some of my relatives came to visit me and make sure that I was okay. I was awake almost the entire night thinking about my baby and thanking God for a fast and successful delivery. I watched cartoons before I finally dozed off...

The next morning when I woke up I was still kind of drowsy because of the medicines that they made me take early in the morning. I was still waiting for the moment when I can see the baby. We kept calling the nursery asking if they could bring the baby to the room but they said that we will have to wait until late afternoon because the doctor hasn't given a go signal yet..

After several hours, the nursery called the room and asked me to come down to the nursery because they will teach my how to breastfeed. (I'm a first time mom so I really have no idea as to how i'm going to do that.. and I may say, its not easy!) It took me 48 years to go down the nursery because I insisted that I walk all the way down and I was stubborn enough to refuse riding the elevator. After the grueling 2 flights of stairs I arrived at the nursery and there I saw my little angel and I felt like I was on HEAVEN!

That was probably the most memorable moment in my entire life! (well not yet, but i'm sure i'll never ever forget that!) Everything is still fresh in my mind but just to make sure that just in case I bump my head and lose some of my memories I decided to write about it ;)

Para sa Akin..

There was this blogger who experienced heartache few months ago.. i would always go visit his blog because her writes very good poetry in our native language. When he said that he would stop blogging his visitors asked him not to. I was one of those visitors and he told me that before he retire, he would dedicate a poem for me. I have been busy and I wasn't able to blog for a while but when I came back, I visited the sites I regularly visit and saw his poem.. dedicated to me..
Thanks Arvin! Mabuhay ka!

Kay: Paulette Quinto
Ni: Arvin U. de la Peña

Tinitiis ko ang lahat para sa iyo aking mahal
Kahit masakit sa akin ay kinakaya ko
Dahil ayoko na ikaw ay masaktan
Dahil mahal kitang tunay.

Kahit minsan sa pagkain
Mas importante sa akin na makakain ka
Kaya kong tiisin ang gutom
Kaysa mag-alala ako na hindi ka busog.

Maging maligaya ka lang ay ayos na
Hindi na ako naghahangad pa ng iba
Ang malaman ko lang na masaya ka sa isang araw
Masayang-masaya na ako.

Basta para sa iyo lahat kakayanin ko
Buong buhay ko ay ibibigay at iaalay
Dahil ayoko na makaramdam ka ng lungkot
Sapagkat ang iyong ngiti ay nagpapasaya sa akin.

Para sa iyo ay hindi ako mag-iiba
Kahit ano pa ang mangyari
Hinding-hindi ko ikaw iiwan
Dahil mahirap ng makahanap ng tulad mo.

a friend messaged me back after i greeted him a happy birthday... and i was touched by what he wrote back... i didnt ask if he was the one who wrote this but i'm happy that he shared it to me.. now i'm sharing it to everybody.

The other day a young person asked me how I felt about being old.

I was taken aback, for I do not think of myself as old.
Upon seeing my reaction, she was immediately embarrassed,
but I explained that it was an interesting question
and I would ponder it, and let her know.

Old Age, I decided, is a gift.

I am now, probably for the first time in my life, the person I have always wanted to be.
Oh, not my body! I sometime despair over my body, the wrinkles, the baggy eyes, and the sagging butt.
And often I am taken aback by that old person that lives in my mirror (who looks like my mother!), but I don't agonize over those things for long.

I would never trade my amazing friends, my wonderful life, my loving family for less grey hair or a flabby belly.

As I've aged, I've become more kind to myself, and less critical of myself.
I've become my own friend.

I don't chide myself for eating that extra cookie, or for not making my bed, or for buying that silly cement gecko that I didn't need, but looks so avante garde on my patio.

I am entitled to a treat, to be messy, to be extravagant.
I have seen too many dear friends leave this world too soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes with aging.

Whose business is it if I choose to read or play on the computer until 4 AM and sleep until noon ?

I will dance with myself to those wonderful tunes of the 60&70's, and if I, at the same time, wish to weep over a lost love ... I will.

I will walk the beach in a swim suit that is stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the waves with abandon if I choose to, despite the pitying glances from the jet set.

They, too, will get old.

I know I am sometimes forgetful. But there again, some of life is just as well forgotten. And I eventually remember the important things.

Sure, over the years my heart has been broken.
How can your heart not break when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody's beloved pet gets hit by a car?
But broken hearts are what give us strength and understanding and compassion.
A heart never broken is pristine and sterile and will never know the joy of being imperfect.

I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turning grey, and to have my youthful laughs be forever etched into deep grooves on my face.
So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair could turn silver.

As you get older, it is easier to be positive.
You care less about what other people think.
I don't question myself anymore.
I've even earned the right to be wrong.

So, to answer your question, I like being old.

It has set me free.

I like the person I have become.
I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be.
And I shall eat dessert every single day, if
I feel like it.

Philippine Fashion Week Spring Summer 2010

I always walk down the runway of Philippine Fashion Week but since i was already 5 months pregnant last may. My doctor advised me to stop wearing high heels because i was experiencing spotting and it's really bad for the both of us (me and the baby). The worst reason why i was not able to do Philippine Fashion Week is because my skin was ravished by chickenpox. ( yeah i had chickenpox when i was pregnant! of all the times that i would acquire the virus it had to be that month! well i'm glad that the baby wasn't harmed... )

so anyways, i told myself that if i give birth the first week of september i will be able to walk down the runway again.. and so i did.. i gave birth 09/09/09! weew! i didn't gain so much weight when i was pregnant so i didn't really have to lose weight to get back in shape. i just needed to get well and let all the wounds heal... then i was ready to wear my high heels again.

everybody was shocked when they saw me at the fitting... the fashion industry is small so everyone knows everything about everybody... and they knew that i was pregnant because the last time everybody saw me was when i was still 8 months pregnant... i was so happy to be back that i answered everyone's questions as to how i was able to get back to work a month after i gave birth... and i'm glad that everybody welcomed me back

so Philippine Fashion Week came and i got lots of shows.. some days i got one show and other days i got three shows.. so it was really tiring and i was exhausted when i got home that i wasn't able to take care of my baby anymore (i was just so lucky that my mom was there to take good care of my little angel! Thanks NANAY! I Love You!)... by the time that the week ended i had lots of blisters on my feet, my muscles were aching and i was already having migraines because i lacked sleep...

i told myself that i won't be working as much after this because i want to spend time with my baby and to take care of her first since she was still so fragile... so i rejected some shows and spent wonderful precious time with my angel... next year i will go back to work again and i'll make sure that i will be there to stay ;)

here are some pictures taken by wonderful photographers ( Nelson Villarica, Sidney Jones and Bruce Casanova ) hot from the runway of Philippine Fashion Week Spring Summer 2010

I'm Back!!

yeah i know i have been busy this past few months... i must say, being a mother is a hard job but it is far more rewarding than any job in the world! i can get used to sleepless nights and restless days... she makes me complete and according to Ms. Universe Sushmita Sen, being a mother is the complete essence of a woman.. oh yes.. i am complete! (centrum! haHA!)

i cant really describe the way i feel but i can put into words the way she makes me feel..

the way that she looks at me is more flattering than all the people admiring me when i sashay down the runway...

her breath.. oh her breath smells sweeter than the most fragrant perfume that i ever bought...

the warmth of her body while i hold her close to me feels way better than the warmth of summer sun touching my skin...

and when i look at her... it feels like my heart is about to burst from all the love and happiness that i am feeling...

she's now my world, my life, my everything...

i love you baby!
