Make-up Brushes


Took me an hour to clean the brushes that I wanna bring this weekend for my trip to Houston.
I've never been to Texas and this is chance. I wanted to bring some of my favorite make/up brushes fresh and clean so I can paint my face fiercely.
Yup! This are just some and it's prolly worth hundreds already or a thousand. Hehe!


Beyonce - Billboard 2011 Millennium Award

S T F U ! ! !

She has always impressed me with her performances but she always tops herself with every performance.

In tonights Billboard Music Award, Beyonce was given the 2011 Millennium Award and she receives it with an amazing performance. She surprised everybody by performing her new single Run the World (Girls) starting of by herself and just filling up the stage with tons of whatelse ... GIRLS!

I loved the beginning as well where tons of icons was giving out their messages to B and just honoring her as an artist. And most of all her speech was simple but meaningful.

I ♥ her!!!

Murder on a chair (part 1)

I've always been scared/hesitant on getting my hair done. As far as I remember I barely went to a salon coz I've always been particular with my hairstyle. I want it a certain way that any hairstylist can ever get.
When I was younger, my mom would always take my younger brother and I in the same salon in Anonas (Philippines). The hairdresser was a tall built gay guy who always makes jokes with me. I don't know if it's because he liked me or he knew I was a Mary.
Little Rascals was such a big movie back then that he decided to play with my hair and gave me the same haircut as Alfalfa, bowl cut my with a hair standing up at crown of my head. U thought it was cool back then but looking back, it was such a tragic mess. I got a lil older and that salon closed down ad we had to find a new one.
Mom found Alter Ego at V.Luna which is much closer on where we leave. At times, Mom would go with me but as i got older, I'd tell her that I need a haircut coz the school requires a 3/4 policy haircut and she would give me a hundred and ten pesos (approx $3) and an extra fifteen pesos (couple of cents) for the tricycle ride). I absolutely hated it because for the longest time I've always wanted to grow out my hair.
The owners name is Pinky, she is a MtF Transsexual who had thin colored hair, a very groomed brows and make up for days who always wear pink. I think I sat on her chair the very firs time I went there and she really took care of me and gave me a fierce haircut and gave me a cheap deal with a bottle of hair gel. One of assistant dressers name is Odie who we eventually found out was in a relationship with Pinky which all of us find odd at that time coz Odie is gay. But in this day that's pretty normal. Odie was cute, nice average body (my brother told me that he is built now and lifts regularly) and I was a lil bit attracted to at that time. Whenever I come over for a haircut and sit on his chair he would always flirts with me. He would spend extra minutes washing my hair and massaging me head and the back of my neck and he was good. At this time I was a teenager and was conscious with the trend. I wanted that clean looking haircut still 3/4 (lol) buy styled like a celebrity. Haha! Sometimes I would switch to the other assistant which is Pinky and Odie's bestfriend. It get really busy in their salon. They have 4 chairs with 3 hairstylists. A reception area that would probably fit 3 people and they accept appointments and walk-ins too. Ghie, the 3rd stylist was gay too. A shorter guy with heavy mustache, a lil bit on the heavy set and always has a tucked in shirt. He is not much of a talker like Pinky and Odie but when they crack jokes I couldn't stop laughing. Unfortunately, I found out that he died about 3 years ago from Lung Cancer. As my brother told me this news, it reminded me right away how often Ghie takes a break and lights a cigarette. Sad.
My senior year was the first time I plucked my eyebrows and might have over plucked it looking at after how my 3rd sister, Lai, would do it. Odie made a comment that I shouldn't do it again coz I'm "handsome" pertaining probably with my obvious sexual orientation. I even saw him in a bar area where the gay crowd is very popular and that even confirms it, looking back years and years of me basically growing up before them as I get my hair done...


EMS week

I moved from Radiology to the ER today and this Tully's coffee kart was in front of usual desk. I totally forgot that they have been preparing for the Emergency Medical Transport week.
Later on, the grill and tent showed up in our Ambulance area...

And people started checking them out. It was funny watching a lot of employees was really curious and interested getting free hotdogs. Who doesnt right?

I wasn't able to take a picture of the bratwurst hotdog that I got but it was delicious.

I was standing outside later on and a vendor pulled in and said drive-thru service. It was really funny. Haha.

The hotdogs was really food and it was catered by Dante's Inferno Hotdogs. Check em out at Dante's Inferno Hotdogs

Rihanna: California King Bed

I super love this song!

I heard it first on American Idol. I thought the title was a lil bit silly at first but when I heard the lyrics it made sense. Definitely on my repeat list for my iPod.

Here's where I heard it first on American Idol. Love the performance, the visuals of the dancers give more drama to it!

My Miss World 1993 Experience

Everytime I see Kimora Lee in TV, print ads or whatnot it always remind me of Miss World 1993, Ruffa Guitterez who is a huge celebrity back home in the Philippines.

They both live the fabulous life. Both Moms, fashionistas and good people over all.

Randomly, I saw a tweet of both of them right after each other and I decided to tweet about my thoughts of both of their similarities for me (pic above). To my surprise, I got a DM from Ruffa saying ...

Wow! Made my crappy day a lil brighter today. I didn't expect for her to respond at all.

Loves it!

3GS Resurrected

I was getting ready to go out this weekend and saw my 3GS and thought of my friend Nate whose 3GS decided to peace out and later on came back to life.

I then decided to grab my dead 3GS for about 3 weeks now and hooked it with my charger. And sure enough BAM! It charges and was resurrected.

Currently making this entry with it and it's been pretty amazing how a cellphone can just make you feel a lil bit complete again. I know, too shallow but this was my first iPhone and a lot of pictures, stories, organizational stuff is in this phone.

I'm hoping this will last for awhile. Welcome back my 3GS.

Ms. Asian Pacific Islander 2003

O M G ! ! !

Kalika posted this pic last night on Facebook and I was a lil shocked. It's been years that I've done pageants and Ms. Asian Pacific islander in 2003 was probably the last one that I've joined.

Memories flash backed right away as soon as I saw the pic. I remember that I wasn't supposed to join but API was low on candidates and one of the founders persuaded me to join.

Mentally I wasn't there , I remember standing stage left waiting to get on stage as I would take deep breaths and putting on my pageantry smile but as soon as I get off stage I would just sit there staring around but my mind wasn't focused.

Kalika won the crown and I was happy for her. She worked so much for the pageant and even made her own national costume (shown in pic). She had the determination and focus but it wasn't my night.

Thanks for the pic Kalika!!!

... Thanks to Robert (Obet) for my recycled National Costume from her reign to my reign as Ms. Fil-Am and Asia 2002.
