Goodbye Super Glue!

Finally, I can kiss super glue (LOL) and my worn-out shoes GOODBYE!

Either that or I'm still in therapy, retail therapy. Anyway, so glad there's a special offer of 25% off at Nine West.

Here's what I bought, photos are originally posted on my Instagram..

That "White" Pinay

Mirror, mirror on the wall.. who's the fairest of them all?

So today I went to MAC at Burjuman Center to get me a face powder, been wanting to try this on. A Russian (not sure) sales attendant assisted me, she suggested me to get the NC35 shade.

Since I do not know what my shade is and what NC35 means, I approached a Filipina sales attendant, wearing all-black and in-full-make-up, to inquire and also asked her what shade she is using.

Her reply, "NC25. SIEMPRE, magkaiba naman tayo ng kulay! MAPUTI AKO! (NC25. OF COURSE, your skin tone is different from mine, I AM FAIR!)" then proudly showed me her arms and rolled her eyes like making-face-stuff. I wish you actually heard how she said it in Tagalog and seen her facial expression. Priceless!

Her gesture made me feel "dirty".

I never knew that a "fairer" Filipino can think highly much of herself.

Seriously, I know "our" obsession of glutathione and other skin whitening products and cakey-foundation-layering but oh never mind. LOL.

So Heartbroken

I am still heartbroken... In fact I did some retail therapy yesterday. Yep, bought me some stuff to make me feel better.

Just to be clear, there's no "trouble in paradise", this is related to my previous post, the European dream frustration, lol.

My friend's visa application has been denied too for the same can't be ascertained reason. To think she'd been all over Southeast Asia and Turkey her monthly salary is 50% higher than mine, still they refused her and didn't even interview her. Our common denominator? We both are Filipinos. And it doesn't take a genius to figure out why we didn't get the visa. Oh sometimes I am not happy being Asian/Filipino. 

If these people don't want some certain nationality in their country, they should stop being all over other countries and should only stay in their own country and do «cuckoo clocks and army knives» themselves into oblivion. 

Lol, I'm so bitter.

Your race is not better than mine because you and I, we belong to the same HUMAN RACE.

And There It Goes My European Dream



And there it goes my European dream, it goes and flies away.. far far away from me. *sighs*



P.S. I know it`s not the end of the world but still.... Ugh! This too shall pass.

Edits: I wasn't going to stay in your country. I was supposed to open an account and purchase some army knives, watches and chocolates. LOL

High Heels-ally Challenged

I have issues with high heels let alone a stiletto or pumps whatever you may call it. :D

I have bought these shoes way back in 2010 and for some reasons I haven't wear them yet. 

Lately, I tried them at home, walking to kitchen then to room for half an hour as practice so I can wear them outside at least before they gone to waste or before I reach 60. LOL.

I realized that heels make you look or feel sexy and tall. Yeah, yeah. Haha.

I'm planning to actually wear them next month and stumbling, tripping and falling while wearing them are not part of the plan. 

So wish me luck.

To high heels and beyond!
