Last November 8, super typhoon Yolanda a.k.a. Haiyan visited the Philippines and not in a good way. It left a lot of cities devastated and thousands of people homeless and starving. It's been over a week but I hope we won't stop helping our brothers and sisters in need. There is always a reason for everything. We may never know the reasons why, but God knows and in the end it is all for the best. I'm glad that Cebu was spared from any grave damage but my heart goes out to everyone in Tacloban, Samar, Iloilo and Northern Cebu. I'm sure everyone has heard stories from friends, the media, and hearsay. Instead of being so negative or complaining about what's happening, I hope everyone will turn it into positivity to bring hope to those affected.

Happy Halloween! How was your night like?
I'm usually never in Cebu when Halloween rolls around and so this time I had the chance to actually take part in the festivities!
I honestly didn't plan on dressing up this year and this was a last minute decision! I had about 3 hours to come up with a costume and so the only thing I could think of was make a flower crown and voila! I am... can you guess? ;)

It was such a fun night! I'm already thinking about my costume for next year. Hey, it's better to be prepared! ;)

Last October 15, a devastating earthquake hit Bohol, Cebu and other parts of the Visayas. My family and I were very fortunate because we were abroad and were not able to experience this particular quake. We had one already last year, but it was nothing compared to this one. From the pictures I saw on the internet, to the stories my friends told me about that day, one can only imagine what it felt like. But you would never really know what it felt like unless you experience it first-hand.
But I'm so glad that so many people are willing to help our brothers and sisters in need. Bohol needs help the most because it is the epicenter of the quake. I hope that my Filipino readers will do their part to help - donate cash, food, supplies, anything you can give.
Now on to my outfit.
I mentioned above that my family and I were on vacation two weeks ago (will blog about that soon), and I was so happy to find a bag that looked like the 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli.
I have been obsessing over that bag for months and months and when I finally had the chance to buy it in Hong Kong, I was heartbroken because the bag weighed a TON. It was soooo heavy and it didn't even have anything inside. No matter how much I loved it and how beautiful the bag was, I ended up not buying because I didn't want to break my arm by carrying a ridiculously heavy bag. So I said, "hey, I'll just learn to un-love the bag". But I didn't.
Seeing it pop-up on instagram or on blogs and magazines made me want it even more. You know, wanting something you can never have - that kind of feeling. So when I stumbled upon this bag at Forever21 in Korea, I was elated. Here's a bag that looks like the Pashli, minus the weight! Hoorayyyyyy! And it came in a really pretty green color too!
