the upside and the downside of things

i won’t assume that i have followers who read my every post (if you do, thank you so much!) but if you’ve noticed, i haven’t been updating as regularly as i used to. that’s one of the downsides i’ve been experiencing the first few months of 2011. work has taken too much of my time that the sun has gone down before i remember that i have to take outfit photos. the upside is that work has been hectic lately because of our new clients and of bigger projects we’ll be embarking on in the next few months. other downsides and upsides:

downside vs upside
i miss my sister so much even how she annoys me
but
i am definitely loving having the room completely to myself
i have to get my car muffler fixed because it’s roaring like a race car-wannabe
but
at least i don’t have to suffer the taxi fare hike
i have to cut back on expenses — so i can’t buy new shoes anymore..gaaaah!
but
i don’t have to suffer the night shift and can work during the day
it’s been said that we can have everything we want in life, just not always at the same time. so instead of fretting over the downsides, think of the upside and be thankful for it. as long as we have the patience and perseverance to wait to be blessed with everything we want, being thankful for the good things, even the small ones, can’t hurt. 
so regarding my outfit posts, if i can’t have time to take photos during the day, please bear with the ones indoor that i take in my room right when i get home form work. the lighting may be different in each shot (perfect example: the photos above) but i’m doing my very best.

  3. Hello my thick-lipped sister!!! Bakit hindi nag-chachap ang lips mo?? I hate wearing lipstick because my lips are always chapped, as in puro lines and stuff it looks like a dry dessert or somethang

    And about upsides and downsides… I agree. You should only look at the positive side of things. 🙂

  4. Dearie, the pictures were taken in bogo. 🙂 the italian restaurant is right across their public plaza but this restaurant was expensive. we ate the pastas at a small restaurant at the pier — made by an Italian who once worked as chef in La Tegola.

    I love your indoor pictures just the same. And now I envy your hair. It's so luscious.
