10 things I learned today

Halloo, halloo! Just got home and, seeing that I've been terribly negligent of this blog, let me dash off a few things I learned today!
  1. Hair extensions make me look so much thinner!
  2. The Maldives is just 8 feet above sea level so that when the 2004 mega tsunami hit it, well, it didn't just hit the country, it drowned it. Yes. The entire country! (Thanks, Dylan, for this tidbit!)
  3. Some people look cool and sophisticated in a blazer, other people look boring. I, sadly, belong to the boring group. I am going back to leather jackets. It may look ridiculous in this country but I'd rather look ridiculous than boring!
  4. Some bloggers are required by PR groups to write about their events. Required! Guys, if you aren't paid to write about it, you don't have to!
  5. To send one of my handmade leather satchels to Singapore costs P639.
  6. In a group of 100 25-year-old people, statistics show that by the time they reach retirement age, only 1% will be wealthy, 4% will be financially independent, 5% will still be slaving away. The rest? They'll either be broke or dead. And, at 60 years old, I don't know which is worse!
  7. SM Makati has wooden hangers!!! P600 for a box of 20! I bought 4 boxes!
  8. Wearing a blazer while you're in a super packed MRT coach is insanity.
  9. Wearing long hair extensions in a super packed MRT coach is not a good idea. Not at all. My head kept getting jerked back!
  10. (SPOILER ALERT! GAME OF THRONES SPOILER ALERT!) The Lannisters aren't all evil. Well, most of them are, but Jaime just redeemed himself in my eyes.
And that is what I learned today! How about you?

  5. I learned that you ride the MRT. Really? I never thought of you as the type Ms. Frances. :)) Ang down to earth mo talaga :)

  6. Ack! Sorry sorry. It's in Book 3. Wala pang Season 2. Well, it's not much of a spoiler and Vince says just because Jaime did one good thing doesn't mean he's a good person especially since it's only Book 3 of 7! So jury's still out.

  7. Ria, why not??? I think I've said it often enough in this blog that Vince and I try our best to save the planet and so we only use the car when we have Vito. Most of the time, we commute or walk! In fact, we only bought a car when I was 5 months pregnant =)

  8. Okay lang. They become good guys later on anyway just didn't expect it to happen so soon.....uh, in the same way they killed Khal Drogo's character :/

  9. I know!!! Just when super okay na ang relationship ni Drogo and Khaleesi, pinatay nila! Kainis! Enjoy pa naman kami sa sex scenes nila =D

  10. Hi Frances!

    Nr.3 - and I look ridiculous in a leather jacket :-/

    Nr.6 - I'm wary of statistics; there are so many other factors to consider and lots more possibilites...however I'm working to be part of that 4% :D

    hope you are your family are well and know that I think of you often!

  15. In the home section, Melvel and G. Saying nga kasi nag home sale ang SM nung long weekend daw and super bagsak presyo yung hangers. But at the regular price of P600 for 20 pieces, mura pa rin!

  16. Jogels, you have the most fabulous gay blog super! Kaloka ka! :)

  17. i have 2 boxes of the wooden hangers as well! thing i discovered though is you can't squeeze as much clothes in your closet if you're using wooden hangers as opposed to those plastic tubular hangers. when they were on sale, they were on 20% off and i wasn't able to get any cause i was commuting that day :( sadness!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Roxy, you're not supposed to squeeze in your clothes! Magugusot! Your hangers should be one inch apart to allow your clothes to breathe =)

  21. Jaime, as I said in a comment here, my hubby thinks one act of goodness doesn't make a person good so we'll see! =D

  22. Alvin, thanks! I looked at your blogs and it's not related to mine at all. I usually link up blogs that are like mine--pang-girl ba: fashion, beauty, shopping, shoes. But thanks for dropping by!

  23. SM Makati has wooden hangers!!! P600 for a box of 20! I bought 4 boxes! -- where exactly? :)

  24. 8 and 9 is funny!!! And about #4, I've noticed that some of the blogs I follow are now events infested and I don't really want to read about those things... So I hope that if they're not getting paid for it, they would stop focusing so much on blogger events and go back to blogging normally.

    Just a thought, of course...

  25. i have two tiny closets in my room, hence the need to stuff things without any room to breathe! bad cause i iron my clothes just before wearing them which means malakas sa kuryente :(

  26. I've always dreamed of going to the Maldives!

  27. only 600++ to send to Singapore? What courier Ms.Frances? I love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Crickette, I will try to keep events out of my blog. For you =D

    ReplyDelete
  29. Last commenter, I made a mistake. I thought it was P600+ but when the Xend guy weighed the bag, it was P800+.

Thanks for dropping by my blog! It really means a lot that you spare the time to read... and comment!
