the AMcQ appreciation post

I am definitely NOT the most updated fan of the international fashion industry nor the most adequate person to critique fashion but as far as my fashion research and abilities are concerned, Alexander McQueen will always be the greatest fashion icon evarr!

Not only his designs are awesome, but every piece is well-thought-of. Details are exaggeratedly emphasized. From gowns, to heels, to clutches, to scarves, to every AMcQ creation, all with a stroke of genius! Reason why such sorrow had blanketed the whole industry when the great man died last year.

Feast your eyes with my list of AMcQ faves.




and the osm-est of them all...

RIP very osm man. Your creations will always be the greatest evidences that there once lived a man of fashion greatness.

After 3 months and a day...

Checked last post and it was dated September 25. Talk about hiatus ai't?

For 3 months and a day, SOOOO MANY HAD HAPPENED. There were life-changing sad moments, there were also awesome ones. 

1. From NEWBIE to REGULAR

Hooray for my first 6 months in Alliance Software Inc. Time just went so fast and as far as I could remember, there was the orientation, first Summer Outing & the first ever newbies presentation, first project assignment, first newbies outing in Moalboal, and booom, we all went regular emps! Ofcourse the stress is there but it's the people and workmates that make me want to work more. 

ASI NEWBIES 2011


2. From Cebu City to Moalboal

First ever newbies outing happened in Moalboal. It's also been a pride since we were able to pull the event off even for just a few days of preparation. The newbies may not be complete that time but still, every minute of the event was precious. It was obvious that everybody had a great time!


we were roasting mallows. yummy and deli!

3. You will be missed MAMA

This has got to be the most sorrowful thing that ever happened to me. Mama died due to the cancer cells from her cervix that went up to her lungs few years after her cervical operation. September when we were informed about her latest condition and all I could ever remember that I did was break down and pray for her to stay even until March of 2012 so she could still witness my sister's graduation. My mama values education so much and I know she'll be very happy to see my sister walk down the stage and get her diploma. I'll be selfish to wish that coz I know that even early this year, she is already in pain. October she started to take in oxygen from the machine we rented so she could just stay at home and still be comfortable with her condition. She's been so strong in her last few months. She still takes care of my siblings every morning by checking if they've already brought all the things they need for school. She still checks up on me every night when I arrive from work. Everything seems normal except for the fact that we already know what's about to happen soon. 

When mama died, it was less hurtful for I know I already did my best to be with her in her last few months. There was already acceptance from her and from us. It was like everything's already planned and all we have to do is wait. We don't want to see my mama get hurt every day. We have no choice but to accept. 

And now, a huge responsibility had been thrown down upon me. No choice still, I just have to be more responsible this time, with Mama as my guide. <3 you Mama

the day before my college graduation! she's the one who did my  make-up :D


4. the MA family

A big part of my family may had been taken but a new one had blossomed and they are numerous to make me happy... my MA family!!!

My MA family had been there since May this year. They were my confidants in the most stressful and happiest days of my work life. It's just so sad to know that we will be saying our goodbyes already this Jan2012 after the project ends. HUHUHUHU

5. TIUMPENZ Christmas Party

Geez, how I miss these people. They've been my buddies all throughout college. I've spent my 4 college years with them and now that we are all apart, I'm happy that we were still able to fit into our schedule this little get-together.

6. The 1st ASI Christmas Party = The 1st Shameful Performance

I am possessed with bathroom singing abilities ONLY and to be able to sing and rap Super Bass in this event which if I may emphasize, THEY FORCED ME TO DO, is just full of tons of shame! To comfort myself, I just keep telling me that atleast I had made my shuuuperstar fantasies come true. I also enjoyed being able to share the stage with my beloved co-hopefuls, Glenda and Onin, in this one-time event. Enjoyed the whole night. It was all full of glam and fab! Love et!
