Hello Quarter Life Crisis, It's me, MAFIE!

Too much things are going around in my head in the past few weeks and yesterday, I knew I needed to get lost for a while. I wanted to shop, but that was out of the question. And so, I had this brilliant idea to have my quick fix at a bookstore. I turned on my iPod, listened to Coldplay's Viva La Vida over and over again and got lost into the sea of books. This always does the trick for me. I feel unusually calm and happy whenever I'm surrounded by books. It feels like I'm in different places at the same time and doing different things at the same time by going through the books. No matter how much I love my life, sometimes I feel the need to get away from the craziness of it all or else I'm gonna lose my sanity.

It doesn't help that the Hubby and I fought over something stupid last night and currently not speaking with each other for over 24 hours. We're just cooling things off and I know tomorrow we'll get to talk things over and be all lovey-dovey again.

Hay, Hello Quarter Life Crisis, Hello!

Ultimate Warla Mode

If you're frustrated with your personal life, do not take it out to your colleagues. Stop pretending that you have slaves here in Manila. It doesn't necessarily follow that you are higher than US just because you are based in some place else.

Oh puhleeassse! Nandyan ka nga wala ka namang minions! So hindi ka pa rin boss di ba? Stop blaming others for your stupidity. You are not God's gift to the world.

I can be extremely mean when provoked. Don't push your luck too much!

I (unwillingly) lost my make up mojo - - - - TEMPORARILY of course

And so, in my last post which was like a thousand years ago, I mentioned that I am getting married soon and I mean really soon. More than a year ago, I never thought that getting married today can be so expensive, I never knew that it would take as much as 125K to hire a videographer and 90K to hire a photographer. We initially allotted a budget of 150K for 100 guests, and I was pretty sure during that time that it would be enough as I didn't want to spend so much on our Catholic Wedding.

But then, like most women, my Bride Gene kicked in full force, 5 months before the wedding date, I decided that a wedding is just a once in a lifetime experience and spending some of our, oh, I mean his, hard-earned money will be worth it. To make the story short, the 150K budget ballooned, good thing my Hubby did not object as he knows I would throw a bitchfit about it. LOL! Don't you just feel so lucky when your man always want to give you all the best things in the world?

And because I didn't want him to do all the financial sacrifice and since I can only do so much.. the only thing I can't think of to help him with the wedding expenses is to cut back on shopping, so that we can have something for the rainy days. and so, I did the unthinkable... With all the courage I have, I stopped dropping by at the mall after work, I stopped viewing beauty and fashion blogs and I stopped visiting GirlTalk! And surprisingly, I survived! Yes, that's my story why I haven't been blogging for the looonggeeesssstttttt time.

It also helped that a friend were also in a similar situation before and she was able to share some words of wisdom. You are truly my soul twin sister. It gets creepy at times that we always have the same experiences and identical taste in everything! Thanks sweetie! You know who you are.

With this experience, I have learned many many things and like what my soul twin sister always say, this will only make you better and smarter! And she is right all along.

Oh, the things you do for LOVE!
