Get your Glee Fix at

I never really liked high school.  And yes, I do envy, and am at times in awe at the millions of people who say they had a blast during this crucial adolescent / puberty / hormone-overloaded time of their lives.  But being an average, overweight, socially-inept wallflower didn't do anything much for my self-esteem, especially when I was surrounded by people who I think has already got it down pat.

You see, I wasn't usually like the other HS teenagers I've met.  I didn't like parties.  I didn't like dealing with boys (I came from an exclusive all-girls elementary school and had absolutely no idea on how to be around them.)  And most of all, I hated the ackward, self-conscious phrase that puberty brought.

There was one shiny, tiny inch of dignity that I was able to capture though.  I joined the school choir during my sophomore year, which served as my refuge from school's harsh reality. 

So when the tv show Glee came along, you bet it was bound to become one of my favorites!

Glee, as everyone is aware of, is about a group of kids who are considered the outcasts of their small school society, but their love of music brings them together and they learn life's important lessons along the way.

What I really love about this show is the weirdness and unexpectedness of the situations they get themselves into, plus the fact that the villain is not always such at every episode.  So unlike Pinoy telenovelas which stereotypes actors as "good" or "bad", branding them that title forever (hello!  Think FPJ!)  It's no wonder that even the masses had a hard time believing that Erap was a thief wasting away the nation's coffers.  They just didn't see him in enough bad guy movie roles.  Distorted perception much?

But I digress.  Like every devoted Glee fan, I love hearing about the cast's exploits when on or off the set.  Heck!  It gives me something to look forward to whenever they show reruns.

Good thing there are local fan sites like Gleekzone which whets my appetite for anything Glee.  Chockful of news, trivia and pictures, among other things, every true Gleek will definitely get lost in this vast, wealthy site commemorating Gleekdom and everything Gleeky!

And even though I have outgrown my loser-ness since HS (I hope), I definitely love looking back at the times when choir was one of the highlights of my dreary days. 

More power to the Gleeks!

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
