Thank you PATTY MENDOZA for the wonderful pictures
I feel horrible.
First of all, theres a huge gut accumulating on my stomach, because I’m too lazy to shake it off through exercise. I swear, if I don’t get a new sport soon, obesity will become me. Second, there’s the Kings of Convenience concert this Wednesday, and I misguidedly scheduled my flight home on the same day, which means i’ll miss it. Worst part is, Michael was thoroughly looking forward to the event. Third, my throat is extremely sore and my head has been feeling like it weighs 10 pounds. and Lastly, I’m PMSING like all hell! Which means mood swings, heat strokes, and a huge huge appetite. I warn you people, be afraid! Okay, maybe that was a bit exaggerated… but I still feel gross.
Let me show you what I was busy with in Cebu.

My sister’s and I decided to have a photo shoot for the store’s S/S 2010 collection while I had some time to kill in Cebu. We scheduled it for the next day, leaving me in charge of styling 63 outfits, and finding 4 models willing to shoot on such a short notice, all in one afternoon.
8 AM the next day, my sister, Jack, and I, quickly created an impromptu set against the purple accent wall of the WAGW headquarters. Some fashion books on the table, a huge vase with swiggly sticks, a mannequin, my mom’s set of pearl necklaces, and we were set! My gorgeous models arrived one after the other looking absolutely excited and ready. (insert: Thank you girls for being so fun and easy to work with!!!! xx)
Music on loud, check. Hair and Make Up, check. Outfits readied, check. It was the start of another wonderful WAGW story, ready to unfold into photos.
Watch out for the WAGW S/S ’10 collection, coming to stores near you! <3
Hello Diploma! Can I just say that my mother's brilliant sweet talking powers enabled me to be the very first 2010 graduate to get her diploma? I love it. <3
Outside Ateneo HS, taking a quick snapshot before the ceremony.
My cousin, and future celebrity chef, Camille.
My sister thought it would be pretty cool to take a picture of us walking towards the covered courts. The photo was successful, but walking backwards, she almost crashed into a bunch of people!
Getting my medal and diploma from Fr. Nebres, who totally looked like a cuter version of Dumbledore in his toga.
- With my very very happy mother and father, who shed a little tear watching me walk towards them for the medal pinning.
Family dinner with Michael, who snuck in the ceremony. <3
My darling sister, who fell asleep during the whole event, and only woke up when it was my turn, and when it was time to go! She flew to Beijing at 4am this morning, i'll super duper miss her.
Oh, graduation day.
It’s a tough ordeal, saying goodbye to the academe, when it’s been your home for about 18 years. But then, I guess there are some things we must learn to let go. Little by little, we must have the courage to face the real world with thundering hearts and willing minds. Congratulations Batch 2010!!!!!!! Let’s ROCK the world!
