you, me, us (pt. 2)

I don't feel like telling you a story today, but here is the first part. I just got home from work and I'm very very hungry.

What's in my bag + Giveaway winners!

Howdy! It's almost a week since I last updated. And my blog is dying again. The title says it all. Hee. This is the first time I'm doing something like this! I had always wanted to, though.

This is my the bag that I'm using! Ooh, god knows how long I've had this one. Prolly around 5 years? I forgot where I bought it from. Wait, maybe when I was in SG. Definitely not in HK because I never got to shop there. I need to reorganize my memory. Yeah and errr ignore my brother's foot! Haha. He wouldn't budge when I told him to get off and just kept sleeping!!

The contents! Ferragamo wallet, eau de toilette in apple blossom from The Body Shop... I only use that perfume because it kinda reminds me of Bright Crystal by Versace. My all-time favorite! It's my signature scent. I was gonna say something more. I actually typed "this morning" and I was like, wait. I don't do mornings! And I forgot what I wanted to say. Never mind.

Accessories! Moustache connector ring, which I don't recommend because your ring and fuck-you finger will hurt after an hour of using it due to non-movement. A set of keychains: Tokyo Disneyland memorabilia from the 80's (was my mom's. She's a pack rat), Hodge Podge, a verrrry dirty Korilakkuma one, and sparkly swarovski stones!

Time to see my babies! They're not some useless mini plushie that I used to collect, though. Remember Milku? Not that I dislike Milku. He's basically one of the veterans. I have a post about my early mini plush collection. Heehee. Kuma here is actually a coin purse, while Alpu (the therapist) keeps my phone safe.

Make-up kit, and my umby! Stitch says hi. And I know you miss Scrump. I do, too! Haha.

The inside of my make-up kit. Kuma (yes he actually resides there because I bring my transparent kit to my workplace. We're not allowed to use a non-transparent pouch), toothbrush, spectacles cleaner (the thong thingy), Cat Chu Wink face powder by Tony Moly, lip gloss palette by Chanel, a Pilot pen given to me by Niko, Maybelline lipstick in matte orange (orange lipsticks actually suit me. How I wish I could rock pink...), some eyeliners, and an expensive applicator from The Body Shop... I don't even know why I have it. I don't use eyeshadows. Oh look! There's a reflection on me on the floor!

The et ceteras! It's either Fruitella or Sugus, and a notepad. Niko bought it for me for HK$10, if you're curious. I don't know if it's available locally.

And if you're curiouser, the inside of my Kuma purse! It's like a Matryoshka doll what's-in-my-bag post. Imagine: my bag, my makeup kit, Kuma. Also, I hope Kuma forgives me for exposing his privates. Lol.

There you go. See how few my bag's contents are? BUT THEY'RE DAMN HEAVY. They give me back pain! People always accuse me of bringing books with me: "kaya mabigat bag mo eh, puro libro!" But noooo. No I don't bring books anymore. The last time I actually read something was about a month ago. I can't afford to tire my eyes after work. My poor eyes!

Sometimes I drag my bag around lol. Especially inside the malls. Sometimes I ask a guy friend or my boyfriend to carry it for me for a few minutes. Haha.


My giveaway ended without me knowing hahahahaha. I discovered two e-mails from Rafflecopter: your giveaway needs a winner! It does. So the winners are...

Asyillah Aisyah and Slim Shady!

Lolololol those are their e-mail names! My hotspot is really slow and I can't pull up my rafflecopter. But yeah, sweeties, you know who you are. I already sent you the colors that you requested! Congratulations again and I hope you take good care of them.

you, me, us (pt. 1)

We call it team-building. If you're out drinking with your friends or workmates, you call it team-building. If you're all committed to reaching a certain goal with your group, you call it team-building. Anything that creates bond is team-building. I think. Well, reading the word "team-building" might paint some images of you and your friends crawling on the mud or participating in a triathlon because that's how the resort flyers define it. Either way, it builds a bond and that's the whole point of a team-building activity. So whether you're out shopping or up in the mountains hammering your tents, you're... well, team-building. We had our fair share of the said activity last month, when we rented out some private pool thingy in Laguna on our payday.

Ellia and her kawaii Totoro purse. I soooo want one.

"Mr. Rented Van Driver, please arrive already!" we waited for at least three hours before the van arrived. Ugh.

It was a very humid Thursday morning. Also, it was the first day of my period for the month. Now I know you're being grossed out like "why does she have to let us know that it was her first day? Rainy you're so gross." It's a highlight! No I did not stain my shorts but it was the highlight of my day. You'll find out why later.

Melody and Jhona. I'm not sure if they fancy seeing their photos here but meh. Evil is evil/

See, these folks couldn't wait for the entire lunch to be cooked!

If I were them I would've done the same thing: pretend to be pretending to eat food for the sake of pictures and actually eat it. What, it's for the pictures! *evil laugh*

Hahahaha. Another workmate. A nice soft-spoken dude..tte. No, dude. He's Gayta. We did some "FHM shots" on the rooftop. Excuse me. Excuse me. Hahaha.

"So where exactly are you, Rainy?" There... there! There!! See my legs? Hahaha. No? How about my hair?

My boss and his girlfriend. Or wife. I'm not sure to be honest. Haha. Whaaat? I'm just a newbie!

There were games and prizes as well but I never got to join any of it because I was upstairs wailing in pain! Remember when I mentioned that it was my first day? Dys-me-no-rrhe-a!! At first it wasn't painful. Just plain old disturbance below my tummy. While we were in a huddle and my boss was telling us inspiring stuff (which wasn't boring because he's a real derp), pain gripped me. Right then and there! It felt as if there was a knot in my puson! My legs hurt, veins were suddenly visible on my hands and feet, and my thighs felt as if they were punched by some moron who doesn't know how to! I didn't even know I was crying already. SO yeah Gayta assisted me up the staircase and left me inside my room to cry. Perhaps I looked as if I was really suffering because they were thinking about bringing me to the hospital. It was hell, I'm telling you.

Gayta again. This was before the huddle.

Candy crush!! Haha. I was trying to take a photo of Ellia's hard candies (by Made in Candy (omg they're here in the PH. Here in the PH and I don't have to ask my friends in SG to go purchase me one omg omg) and the freaking pot fell hahaha.


I fell asleep in pain. Niko woke me up five or six hours later by making a phone call. I swear I whined like a freaking baby over the phone. "HUUUN IT WAS SO PAINFUL I TELL YOU. SO PAINFUL!!!" It wasn't long before Ellia and Roxy came to our room to check on me. They filled me in about what happened. There were games. Ate Ehm slipped, our boss was laughing at her and ended up falling face-flat on the floor himself. Caught on video. Roxy slipped. They were all laughing, which made me feel a lil bit jealous because I missed everything. My work buddies are funny people.

The pool. Of course these were taken before my breakdown.

AND YEAH. I ENDED UP SWIMMING AFTER WAKING UP LOL. I was told not to swim because it would cause me more pain but thankfully it didn't. Yeap, I'm from the Philippines. It's normal not to wear a bikini when swimming. Heehee. I did wear a tiny top with a thin fabric though. My bra was fabulous and it would be such a waste!

So the first part's over!! Watch out for the second part because it has better photos. Or so I think.

Also, I think my giveaway already ended lmfao. I'm not really sure. I'm soooo busy sleeping after work I rarely check my blog!

Guess what? I'm going back to sleep.
