Please, please bear with the crappy quality of photos for the last time. By God’s grace, I will be purchasing my much-saved-up-for DSLR next weekend, so hopefully it’s all smooth sailing from there! (Isn’t it amazing how much more satisfaction you get from a purchase you saved up for, rather than just asking it from, say, your parents?) It’s so exciting to learn new things, and photography has always been something I wanted to learn seriously ever since I started reading other people’s blogs and blogging myself.
Yadda yadda yadda.
I told you I love paper bags. 😀
The recent Teachers’ Day celebration in the Philippines aside (where I got a ton of chocolates from my sabotaging high school students, LOL), this was the earliest gift I got from one of the school parents here. I mean, this is quite a tricky topic. People often think that teachers want to be given gifts, which is partly true – I mean, who doesn’t like a gift? However, enjoying a gift doesn’t mean that you’re a greedy, gift-hungry person either. Sometimes, it’s so much simpler (and truer) to think that once in a while, teachers get happiness from the fact that they get appreciated. 🙂
The Face Shop’s nail polish remover – still the best budget-friendly, effective one I know. It still has acetone, though – and it doesn’t compare to my one-bottle-only experience with Barielle, which is acetone-free and smells so naturally good.
Yes, I went SHOPPING! (Cue the White Chicks accent) As a teacher back in my hometown, trips to the malls and big stores are, well, rarer than usual. So whenever we’re in Manila, the sales are fully taken advantage of!!
If you absolutely have to know another random fact about me (quite unlikely), it’s that I’m Ms. Losing the Umbrella. I. am. an. expert. at. losing. umbrellas. During my 3 years in Manila university, I must have lost around 5 umbrellas. Countless more in China, including someone else’s. 😮 Hopefully, this sleek black one will last me longer! It did cost me a little, after all. 😀
P.S. Why do I get the feeling this should have been “Confessions of a Happy Shopaholic”? Oh well.
P.P.S. Seriously, I’m so excited for the D3200. I’m even thinking about giving it a name! What do you think? 😀
