Tagged by Kim.
Another weekend passed and I haven't been blogging. The heat is driving me crazy, the heat in the Philippines has been like a woman -- so MOODY! One minute it's about 40 degrees Celsius and the next it's raining :(
Anyhoo, I've been feeling ill today, definitely a Monday sickness but I've had a lot on my to-do list at work so I was still up and about.
Going back, I'm really glad Kim tagged me to do this, I've been lacking in posts these days because even if I do put on eye makeup and the shebangs everyday, I've been tooooo lazy to take pictures or take note of what I used. So here:
What is your current obsession?
Makeup, obviously. :P And a lot of things, travelling, wanting to go out but not really going out, online shopping for clothes and Mafia Wars. Heehee.
What is your weirdest obsession?
Hmm, impractical, maybe, but not weird? Going out. When I still lived in Makati, I can't stay at home. Maybe I felt really homesick and bored being alone so I went out and never felt tired.
What are you wearing today?
A black longsleeves top from Memo and gray trousers from Ensembles and C & K shoes. Yep, it's pretty boring in the corporate world.
What's your favorite comfort food?
It's different everytime -- it used to be McNuggets from McDonald's, Jellyace from the grocery, Oishi Sponge [hehe, I know!], a tub of ice cream [any brand], mangoes or pineapples, sometimes it was the Go-go sandwich from KFC. :P
What would make today special?
Eek, it wasn't anything special and I don't think there's time left for it to be special.
What would you like to learn to do?
Pro makeup, French, Flamenco, COOK!
What’s the last thing you bought?
Stuff from Mhean's garage sale, I guess. From the mall, I can't seem to remember but I'm pretty sure it's a pair of shoes.
What are you listening to right now?
I can hear the TV outside of my room and it's a soap opera, I think from ABS-CBN.
What is your favourite weather?
How I wish we had spring in the PI.
What is your most challenging goal right now?
Like Kim --- budgeting and identifying needs vs. wants! UGH.
What do you think about the person who tagged you?
I think Kim is a a nice girl. We haven't met personally but we've exchanged comments and she seems nice :)
If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
Tagaytay. My parents plan to retire here in the Philippines even though they're up in NH. So yeah, it would be nice if I can buy a house for them in Tagaytay. At least, they don't have to adjust too much with the weather :)
What would you like to have in your hands right now?
New and complete set of makeup brushes.
If you could swap lives with anyone for one day who would it be and why?
I haven't thought of it, because I can't imagine being out of my body and being someone else.
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
NH, where my mom, brother and dad are. Then we'll visit NYC and I'll go shop like a madwoman.
Which language do you want to learn?
French and Spanish.
What do you look for in a friend?
Honesty -- something rare nowadays.
Who do you want to meet in person?
What’s your favourite type of music?
Alterna-rock-ish. Gin Blossoms, Radiohead type, you know the likes. I've talked about my kind of music with Sab before :)
What is your favourite piece of clothing you own?
I can never be too loyal with any piece of clothing I own, but let me just say that I spoil myself too much with lingerie because I'm crazy over lingerie. My favorite brands are Calvin Klein, La Senza and M & S! And VS, too, of course.
What is your dream job?
Can you believe I wanted to be a Hollywood actress before? But that was when I was a kid. I'm having fun being a writer for now. :)
Any favourite models?
Models of what?
If you had £100 now what would you spend it on?
I would probably add it to my MF on first thought but might buy something haha.
Thing you wish you could change in your past?
None I can think of right now.
Fashion pet peeve?
Colored skinny jeans. Puh-leeze.
Do you admire anyone’s style?
The Olsens? Jolie's. Evan Rachel Wood's. V. Beckham's. Rachel Bilson's.
Describe your personal style.
I always think of what I wear the night before. I try to wear something, even just one item that's fab and traffic-stopping because I love dressing up, as IN love dressing up, even if the heat is frickin' unbearable. And even if I'm sick. Heehee.
What's your favorite ice cream flavor?
Strawberries, mocha, raspberry and mango. Whew!
What is your favourite makeup brand?
I'm liking P & J! Bu I haven't had time to scoot to their booth in Rustan's again.. I have a lot of Body Shop stuff , but I don't think I really play favorites :)
Do you get enough beauty sleep? Yes or no, and why?
Eek. NO :( I work too much!
Okay, here's the rules:
1. Respond and rework: answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own.
2. Tag eight other people.
... and whomever wants to do this! :)
