After years of searching for the probable truth behind the Mayan prediction, the startling (and seemingly stupid, I think) question "Is the world gonna end?" has finally put to a halt. Numerous theories have risen, and frightening explanations have been made on the anticipated Armageddon. Today is the day that we got to prove those theories wrong. It’s December 21, 2012: and I am still alive!

Black Airwalk sneakers from my Little Bro, Nico, who happen to be my photographer in this fashion installation. He totally did exceed my expectations. For an absolute newbie (and a too-cool-for-school teenager), he knows how to take a good shot! Pure talent, baby.

Awesome wings + Herculean rings bought for a very low price.

I am planning to personally train my brother in photography. Not just for my lookbook entries but for his benefit too. Who knows he might want to pursue it after college. No one knows for sure. I can definitely see a huge potential in him! This kind of talent really needs harnessing. Besides, a good student needs a good teacher, right?

Three days before Christmas: there is no other place like home! Last night, we prayed the rosary for my uncle’s speedy recovery, and the feeling of praying together was an infinite delight. I am surely looking forward to more rosary sessions with my family. I really wish Mom was here though. We miss her so much! Merry Christmas, in advance!

Spare me the YOLO lecture, I have seen some of the the deplorable death-by-accident movies. To state the obvious, I have been extremely idle for quite a time now. And by idle, I mean, "… the term which generally refers to a lack of motion and/or energy", as how wikipedia would put it. Coz’ even really passionate bloggers have their timely (restorative) hiatus, right?

WHAT I’M WEARING: Violet Top (Peacebird), Plaid Bowtie (Blooming Handkerchiefs) Red Watch (Ice Watch), Khaki Short Pants (Penshoppe), Tribal Bracelets (SM Accessories) and Blue Shoes (Robertson’s). Hype this on lookbook here.

On the grounds of my prodigious fascination to TVD’s episode "My Brother’s Keeper", I have actually contrived a Mystic Falls inspired fashion shoot. Like, a very literal Mystic Falls fashion shoot! HAHA! Now what can make a random pictorial session more accomplished than presenting my newest bowtie item? Wanky.

Along with my Econ B*tches, my keenly framed sojourn to Kapatagan for Danahlyn’s debut party was noteworthy. As much as I adored the picture-perfect scenery, the Cathedral Falls is definitely one-of-a-kind. If I may say, my pictures didn’t do justice to this magical, majestic (and mystic, so to speak) falls!

The gleaming sunlight radiated the copper-ness of my hair.

Ultimately, this day has been notably meaningful for a number of specific reasons: (1) the dili-ni-inyo-balay bus experience; (2) the Badjao inspirational talk (subject for potential future short films); (3) Legine’s amazing (and most of the time disastrous) contingency plans; (4) on-the-spot debut hosting; and (5) bloodcurdling, random van knock while passing a cemetery. LOL. Love my Econ B*tches! Period.
