Office fun: Miss Universe 2011

September 13 was supposed to be just another typical work day. Clocked in right on time (yay!) and dragged my sleepy ass to my cube only to find out that there's a crowd in front of our TV area, all giddy and cheering like crazy. In my head I was's not the Oscars today, right? Hahaha, lagot ako if it was the Oscars and I didn't know about it! For those who are clueless, I work in a Hollywood magazine, so Oscars is some kinda our version of Christmas.  

So anyway, of course it was the Miss Universe pageant and we're actually winning, which explains why everyone was glued on the screen.  And I mean everyone, even the guys! The energy was so palpable, and because of that fan meter thingie going up and down on the screen, the whole office was roaring! Something like this:

Host: Ms. China! 
Office crowd: Down down down! Yay, ang baba!
Host: Ms. Philippines!
Office crowd: Woooo! Up up up up up... YAYYY!!!
Host: Ms. Angola!
Office crowd: DOWN DOWN DOWN DOWN... ayyyy, daya!

Bwahahahaha. Napaka-competitive ng audience! When the contestants were down to 5, I just knew I had to record this moment.

Congratulations, Shamcey Supsup! I super love your answer, because it's very personal, flat out honest and delivered with much conviction, with no intention to please anyone but yourself. You have my utmost respect and admiration. Thank you for making that morning super fun and exciting! :)

Mango x Nivea Glamboard Express Event

About a month ago, I went to the Mango x Nivea Glamboard Express Launch held at Power Plant Mall. Glamboard Express is a Facebook app that works some kinda like Polyvore, where one can put together clothes to create a fashion mood board. Since the event called for something glam, here's the outfit I came up with:

Embellished button-down from The Ramp, Pleated palazzo pants from Seven Dials, Clutch and ring from Accessorize

I first saw those pleated palazzos in Topshop. It was around P3,700 (I think) then it went down to P1,900 during the mid-year sale. Was about to buy them but thanks to my very good hunting skills, I found a cheaper alternative in Crossings Dept. Store! I got those babies for around P900 and because I can't choose between black or gray, I bought 'em both! So parang di rin ako nakatipid! *facepalm*

Anyway, here are more photos from the event!
