Some days ago I woke up to the voice of my Grandmother asking if I was already awake. This would have been okay, if my Grandmother hadn’t passed more than a year ago. So as I was jolted into consciousness and the joy that is sleep slowly crept away, that was when I realized it was my other grandmother, who after finally being able to rouse me out of sleep, began giving me all sorts of vintage goodies - one of which was this purse that contained a very interesting (not to mention huge) one peso coin from 1972. A few hours later I went to her house to borrow some hangers for my booth at the Bazaar For All Season, and that was where I got gifted with the magic that was in the form of twenty year old lace tops and dresses (which she designed and sewed by herself)

I wore one to the second day of the Bazaar. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never seen this material in clothes being sold in malls nowadays. Wouldn’t it be nice if they did?

If I could describe this day using one word, it would be gluttony. Today was the day most of us got woken up not by the sound of the roosters or our alarm clocks, but by the howling winds brought by Typhoon Glenda. Basically all I did was eat and sleep the whole day, and when the skies finally cleared up a bit, we went out for dinner to this delicious ihaw-ihaw place in Pulilan. The thing that made this certain dinner very memorable was that we had to eat under candlelights, due to frequent power outages brought about by the storm. It was a bit hard trying to pick out bones from the grilled tilapia or trying to decipher barbeque from batikolon, but it was a very interesting experience nonetheless.

On a semi-related note, I hope everyone’s doing okay! Keep safe and keep dry! :)
