Project Runway Episode 8, Season 4

In this episode it's a team effort. And you know what happens if two designers worked together.. A clash of misunderstanding is always there. But these two pairs obviously jived and made wonderful designs.

Christian and Chris won this round. 2nd place: the last minute team - Victorya and Jillian. And Kit was voted out for this challenge. (awww!)

The challenge: To create an Avant-Garde designs inspired by their Model's haristyle. Plus, a second garment - a ready to wear that translate or expresses their avant-garde design.

Design by Christian and Chris
Modeled by Marcia and Lisa


Design by Victorya and Jillian
Modeled by Jacqueline and Lauren


I loved the couture that Victorya and Jillian made! I can't find photos to show you the 3 clothes they made. It's just adorable!!

Still a Fresh Grad? - a yr after grad

It's almost a year now since me and my batchmates graduated.. And I know for sure that every one is asking himself/ herself
"It's almost a year now and I'm still like this?"
"Why am I still lost?"
"Am I this useless?"
"Am I in the right path towards my dream?"
"Is this what I wanted?"

etcetera etcetera etcetera

Well I don't have the answers. I worry more than you do, believe me.

But this I want to share.

I'm one of the lost peeps, and didn't land in a job that could stop me whining. But the good thing is I'm blessed with a job that I could start with. (I waited for this for 10 months!)

Anywho, I have a friend who in my opinion is more confused than I am. She's still looking for a job. And since I know what she's going through right now and I'm blessed (again) with opportunities given to me side by side, I helped her.

I refered her to this cool multinational company (which I regret not entertaining)... we talked through SMS and I couldn't forget what she said..
it touched my heart... and soul
(it goes like this)

"Thanks ha, binigyan mo ako ng hope"
With this it strucked in my mind that maybe I'm bombarded with different job opportunities, even I already said yes to this 10-hr work, not to job-hopping or be in doubt but rather to actually share my blessings to people around me.

For once, I felt good and I know that I did the right thing. Amen to that! :)


Thanks Jesus for this realization :)

Project Runway Episode 4 of Season 4

I know I'm so so late already. It's my 1st week of being a bum (btw I just resigned from my work...)

So I'm kinda having the time of my life. Watching Project Runway Season 4 inspires me to push my creativity... and I really really want to wear those clothes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!











As much as I want to be a fashion designer.. errr.. nah! Haller! As if I have the skills! I rather want to be the one wearing those adorable clothes.

My Gawd! Am I exaggerating? (I guess so) I just wish Victoria was the one cut off of this episode.

These pictures on the left side are the ones I really really like.

Where do you think I can buy those? 168? hahahaha

NEWS: Heath Ledger Dead!

Who doesn't love "10 Things I Hate About You"?

We fall in love with this guy and now he's dead??

ON THE NEWS:


  • They found him dead, naked in bed, in his apartment at manhanttan (Tuesday)
  • Nearby there's a prescription sleeping pills.
  • No indication of suicide
  • There's no final statement released about his cause of death

Days before his Death

  • Ledger told The New York Times in a November interview that he "stressed out a little too much" during the Dylan film, and had trouble sleeping while portraying the Joker, whom he called a "psychopathic, mass-murdering, schizophrenic clown with zero empathy."
    "Last week I probably slept an average of two hours a night," Ledger told the newspaper. "I couldn't stop thinking. My body was exhausted, and my mind was still going." He said he took two Ambien pills, which only worked for an hour, the paper said.(http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080123/ap_en_ce/obit_ledger_29)

HIS MOVIES (just a few)
  • The Dark Knight: Jack Nicholson's JOKER (upcoming this summer)
  • Brokeback Mountain
  • The Brothers Grimm
  • The Patriot (he played as Mel Gibson's son)
  • A Knight's Tale
  • 10 Things I Hate About You
They say that Heath is very choosy in accepting movie offers. He does not jumps on projects all for the sake of money. A very down to earth, talented young actor. He passed away at the age of 28. He could have been...

Anyway, we love you Heath and we pray that justice will prevail..

In memory of Heath:

Me and MY 2008!

After how many hours after the new year's eve, I WAS SO PISSED OFF with MY FRIEND for being sooooo... Hard-headed. Long story.. And I can't help but think of the idea that this negative force would continue to fill up my 2008. It's not true, right?

Its the 2nd day of 2008, and I really really dont want to go to work tomorrow!!! HELP!! I really want to start my 2008 with a new life. New company, new job... lol! Really, but I dont even know now what I'm destined for or what I want to do. I'm not even sure if what I want is what I really really realllllyyy want. Guess, I'm doubting myself.

I just want to work in a stable, multi-national company (marketing post)... and maybe there I could start my life.. Well the hell!!!!

March is fast approaching. I can't believe it's already a year since I was a student who has a direction. But right now, I dont even know if I have one. It's already been a year, and where am i now???

I'm totally LOST.
