Life in MRT - Barney girl

Can't help but notice this girl beside me inside the MRT(Metro Rail Transit - one of the major transportation vehicle here in the Philippines), im not so good in descriptive writing but lemme try this one.

She is wearing a high cut, PURPLE, Converse - Chuck Taylor shoes; checkered pants in PURPLE and white; cool, white teen shirt; glossy PURPLE backpack and lastly a trendy, chic, dark shades(for disguise so people won't recognize her)... lol

Dressed to kill :P

Mommy ni Inday :P

If Inday's text messages are no doubt famous jokes, may it be in cellphone or in comedy bars... Well me and my colleagues have our own encounter of Inday's mom(which I just coined)

Saturday, December 20, 2008 - On our way to a friend's wedding, having her location map as a tool, we managed to get kinda lost(lol) thanks to her high level map where landmarks includes "church," "mall," and "barangay hall" as to what church, mall and barangay hall is that, that's for us to find out... hehehe... Anyways after almost 3 hours of land travel southbound, we reached a not so remote barangay and decided to ask anyone we'll find along the way... Then we saw an old woman carrying her two grand children; clothed in white long sleeves and classic skirt for oldies; with long, wavy hair pony tailed and was heading on our way... Our conversation goes:

Me: Excuse me po, Saan po ung Residencia del Rio Resort?
Old Lady: Ohh, you just follow through and you'll see a platinum sign there. (While we're in shocked, she continued) Okay so you just follow through and you'll see Residencia del Rio in the end...
Me: (Speechless but managed to utter a word, of course I don't want to look doomed in front of my colleagues) Thank you po!

Only then, all 4 of us in the car, we're back in our senses... with this unexpected moment with the old lady we started laughing and making fun of ourselves... hehehe

Unique for my Eyewear

Finding the right pair of eyeglasses has been a frustration to me... not to mention the rising trend of my eye grade (which I wish I could stop)

But to maximize my yearly optical allowance of Php 3,000.00 (not bad huh) I manage to bump into a less than perfect but unique eyeglasses for me... Thanks to Unique Vision... Aside from the 20% discount on the frame that I chose, I also got to work with their accommodating sales staff and very understanding optometrist (Dr Me-Ann)...

And here's the final catch... each eyeglasses on this shop is uniquely made and distributed... which means you will never find the same pair of eyeglasses in other stores... well makes sense why their store is "Unique"
