May 26, 2014


April 11 is a very glorious day for us because our baby has been graduated Bachelor of Arts in Business AministrationMajor in Human Resource Management. I never thought I will have this maternal feeling of enjoyment that she had finished already her Bachelor's Degree . If you’re a regular reader of this little blog, then you already knew that I had only one sister and I am the not so big sister. A little information also about the attire of the graduate. Her University (my alma matter too) follows the unique academic regalia of University of the Philippines. *"Sablay" a sash joined in front by an ornament and embroidered or printed with the University's initials in "Baybayin script" and running geometric motifs of indigenous Philippine ethnic groups.

The fun part is when I am retouching my sister's hair and make-up, my boyfriend is also fixing my hair due to time constraint I never get the chance to do my hair. Thankful that I am because Michael is always here that we consider jack of all trades ;)))

And Voila!!
This is the finished up-do that my boyfriend did to me. So messy but be very cute!!

Pardon for the twist and tangle necklace.

For a sister like me, I never forget to dress up too! And for scorching hot days like we experience I have decided that I will wear something comfortable but eligible outfit that is perfect for this special day. Pastel colors is still in this season that's why, the purple blazer that I thrift way back is pleasing on this combo although I really had the hard time with this cute heels. 

Thriftier's Outfit:

Double Layered Cross Gold Necklace - Amanda's Place
Navy Blue Inner Top - Off brand 
Purple Floral Blazer - Thrifted
Pastel Skirt - Pay Less (local boutique)
Pastel Pink Shoes - Sophie Martin

This actual photo is a phobia conquering too! My phobia posing in front of so many strangers that is waiting for the Graduation program to end. *sighs* I was like making my own shield not to make eye contact with them and I am aware that they all stared at us while we shoot! The picture was like carefree because of the wind accidentally blown on my skirt. ;D

It is almost dusk when the Graduation program ends, but Papito decided to visit his old School the St. Jerome Academy. He enters the academy about early 1970's but didn't finish his studies there because of untoward and tight circumstances but he finished his school at Manila. He also tell us the story of his mischief and troubles about being adolescent here. ;)

I guess it's just a few knows that I have the fascination for a beautiful old church. While parking the van, I kept saying "oh my gosh, the church is so beautiful". Even the looming of the night didn't keep me to stare and gaze the beauty of the church especially the Baroque details and the belfry. 

The stains and cracks of the structure give additional flare to the baroque style of the old church and the dramatic belfry although the belfry itself is considered not to be visited because of its aged and accident might happen if people try to visit the actual interior of it.

Looking very tired.. ;)


The only picture that me and Michael had. <3
