The Calm before the Storm

Woke up early with less sore arms, drove to the grocery to buy needs for the apartment. I'm assuming I won't be able to go home for 3 weeks since Internal Medicine Rotation is toxic---I pray not though!

The fam went to Greenbelt to attend the birthday of my cousin's son. I wanted to check out Forever 21's Buy1Take1 but I heard items on sale were sold out the first day! Boo! But I shall visit F21 and The Ramp anytime soon. :)

it was sunny but this shot turned out dark,haha!

one of my fashion pet peeves is wearing skirt or dress with rubber shoes but I think I look cute here, haha!

with the birthday boy

I'm anxious right now. Internal Medicine rotation will start tomorrow. Despite the toxicities, I hope I'll enjoy and I'll learn a lot. I posted the other day on my Facebook status that my primary considerations remain 1. Internal Medicine probably Cardiology 2. Ophthalmology and 3. Fashion Styling
I wish that after this rotation, I'll fall in love with IM even more. And I hope it will love me back, haha!


The organizers of Mercato-one of my favorite food markets aside from Salcedo and Legazpi markets in Makati-opened a new food haven down south, Soderno @ Molito.
The good thing about Soderno is that it's nearer from home and they have a whole lotta new merchandisers. :)))

bracelets made out of newspapers made by street children from Payatas and Pasig River
remember my cuff made out of chips wrapper  from Echostore? :)

top from The Perfect White Shirt, skirt from Adrienne Vittadini, Alexa bag from Mulberry, sandals from Tory Burch, turband from Flatterbuy, wooden multi-layered necklace from Cebu, bracelets made out of newspapers from St. James bazaar

I'm always a bohemian girl

bumped into my college friend, Amor

bought the Triple Chocolate and Ferrero Cheesecake

the Alabang crowd

Greek pasta: Moussaka and Pastichio

I visited Mercato for over 20 times already so I found Soderno refreshing since they have a whole lot of new things to offer. :) Because it is relatively new, the place was jampacked! It was hell finding a parking space so we opted to park in ATC-which I suggest you to do. It was also hard looking for a table to eat so we opted to eat inside the car while it was pouring, cute! :)

my Greek Pastichio pasta

Eating on the parking lot while listening to the radio is a cool thing to do,haha! We also enjoyed our Sweetened tea and Honey Citrus tea-homemade iced teas done and served by hot guys!!! Go go go! Check them out, wahaha!!! They're near the entrance! The Triple chocolate and Ferrero Cheesecakes are must-trys! 

My aching arms which I refer to as "shopper's palsy" didn't stop me from enjoying my first Soderno experience. I'm definitely going back! I highly recommend it! A&I already know what to eat the next time we visit! :) For now, I shall not eat ANYTHING! TRP dance in 5 days and I still have a huge tummy bulge, crap! :/

Shopping for labels, shopping for love

For years, we've been visiting St. James the Great bazaar and it never fails to satisfy my shopping cravings. :)))

From my last Trauma Surgery duty, I went straight to the hotel to fetch mom...

my Scrabble-letters rings from  Rockwell bazaar

blue lace top from Rockwell bazaar, khaki shorts from Forever21, TOMS shoes, Louis Vuitton bag, watch from Fossil, sunglasses from Forever21, earrings from India

It's my first time ever to get sore arms from shopping
I took pain meds and applied Bengay on my arms that night

one of my good buys
Simple eco-sneakers

I'm so happy I got a dress for our Christmas Party. I just need to buy shoes or should i wear the Louboutin?But I definitely know what bag to use already. :)))
