a little drizzle would do

it rained last friday night and i could just imagine how the plants are smiling and singing praises. it is scorching hot here in the philippines with the el niño phenomenon and saying goodbye to boots and what little leather we can wear is not the worst we’re experiencing.  the phenomenon has caused all the plants and crops in our country to wilt and die. cattle are dying too. fish prices are going up because the fish ponds are drying up and fishes are literally boiling in the water. so when it rained last friday, i couldn’t worry about getting mud on my suede shoes but smile of the hope that we can get through this drought. and with this, i’d be happy to take photos inside my bathroom to get good lighting just as long as it is raining outside.

on another note, i have been following ‘project runway’ for years and this season is my favorite because of jay nicolas sario. he is a filipino who migrated to hawaii when he was 17. his design aesthetic is amazing and i am loving how he surprises me with his creations — especially the black dress he made out of burlap (or potato sack). i have a few designer friends (most are gay like jay) and i can’t help but feel that it is one of my friends on the show — the mannerisms are the same. here is jay nicolas sario and a few of jay’s works (photo credit: google images and mylifetime.com):
proud to be ‘pinoy’!

    that dress is so colorful and cute! and i miss project runway. i haven't watched it in ages. is heidi still one of the judges?



  12. A.Co says:

    Wow – so interesting. I'm a world away (Canada) and it's so neat to hear about what's going on on the other 'side' of the world. How awful the drought you're having – thankfully it rained a bit.

    Love your flats.

    Love the post about DST! That's so interesting as we JUST had our DST (as you know) a week ago and everyone here complains about how it screws them up and makes it hard to get up that hour earlier for a good week or so 😉
