The story behind "Sisiw"

Photo by http://jackkaye.wordpress.com

“S” for Sisiw! haha. Okay, I’m corny.

For those who have no idea what I’m talking about, my nickname is SISIW. Everyone in Cebu calls me that. Friends, acquaintances, teachers…even Mike’s family! Haha. Sisiw is tagalog for chick- as in little chicken. And no, i’m not called that because I look like one. It’s a really really really lame story that goes waaay back in 6th grade.  We used to have these mini games in class when the teachers weren’t around. We’d stage mini battles- hitting each other with scrap cartolina that we used in the bulletin boards, throwing chalk dust all around, and hiding behind blackboards and trashcans- and give the players- our classmates- nicknames. One day, we thought it would be cool to use birds as a genre of sorts. Don’t ask. The weird thing is, I wasn’t even the one who got the nickname. I was her seatmate! But for one reason or another, the name stuck to me, and not her. And thats the end of my lame story.

*Awkward pause*

Okaaaaaaay.

I was going to edit this photo and remove the tree and umbrella, but that didn’t turn out so well. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you’d know that I have very very limited photoshop skills. JackKaye and Mike gave me two huge “no” head shakes when I showed them the product of my hard work. So I guess this photo will have to do.

Jack took photos of me jumping around when we went to the beach last Sunday. This turned out pretty awesome. The rest- I look like an absolute moron. Can anyone guess what beach I’m in? It’s my family’s favorite. :)

P.S.

I kind of feel super bad because I had to turn down 2 super cool opportunities. A style feature spread in one magazine, and an all blogger’s invitation to the School of Fashion and the Arts. *Sigh*

P.P.S.

SURPRISE SURPRISE! :)

Can you believe it.

So yesterday, I was part of this casual fashion show for FUSHU, my friend Jumbo’s, line of shoes. I didn’t see the shoe I was going to wear until the morning of the show, so I was kind of really panicking about what to wear. Good thing the best friend was super duper awesome and super duper handy! We thought of 5 different ways to wear her outfit and mine together, and although it was totally stressful and embarrassing, we totally pulled it off! haha. I was stupid enough to leave my camera behind, so I have no photos to share with you guys.  :( But that not really what I want to talk about. Something totally weird happened a few minutes after the show!

Johann Chiongbian Young of RCTV came up to me and asked if I was interested to host shows for his network! He said that he saw me on the ramp and that I had the right attitude for it. My super spastic reply? “I don’t think of sentences fast enough for TV hosting.” HAHA lame. Anyway, I didn’t give him an answer yet. I told him I’d think about it, so he gave me his card. I have absolutely no idea how to take this in! I am flattered, but very spastic and totally not meant for TV.

Also, the photo above was taken by the very adorable Mark Tiu. I had to crop this photo and inevitably, his watermark, because Im not sure if I’m allowed to release it just yet. But I guess a little teaser won’t hurt. Can anyone guess what this was taken for? :)
