Song to Barbie by Bevlyn Khoo

Just discovered this song quite recently, sung by a Singaporean singer named Bevlyn Khoo.  Aside from its catchy rhythm and smooth tune, I love the message that she's trying to imply -- that looks aren't everything

Don't just aspire to be eye-candy because having a mind of your own is a valuable asset that will never fade.



Song to Barbie
Bevlyn Khoo

Girl, you dress yourself like christmas lightings,
The fashion words that you keep spouting,
Can't you see.  I'm bored to tears.

When you flash your bags or boots so proudly,
Like you stamp your name and soul so shiny,
The glittering, don't mean a thing.

When you come by to me crying,
Not knowing how to fight life wisely,
Then you'd wish, you'd known more things.

Well, just stay on being pretty,
But read your papers daily,
All you read, will set you free.

The boys will chase the pretty,
But wits will win the witty,
So hey barbie, take your pick.

So don't just be eye-candy,
'Cause what a waste of energy.
What will shakespeare say to thee?

When time can't hold the mercy,
And we are old and wrinkly,
What's your caption, girl, what you want to see?

Yes, I love the way your eyes are batting,
And i see the fake eyelashes extending,
then we freeze, do you say a thing?

All the male accesories you're wearing,
Do you know which is the one for keeping?
A to Z, what's worth your esteem?

When you come by to me crying,
Not knowing how to fight life wisely,
Then you'd wish, you'd known more things.

Well, just stay on being pretty,
But read your papers daily,
All you read, will set you free.

The boys will chase the pretty,
But wits will win the witty,
So hey barbie, take your pick.

So don't just be eye-candy,
'Cause what a waste of energy.
What will shakespeare say to thee?

When time can't hold the mercy,
And we are old and wrinkly,
What's your caption, girl, what you want to see?

Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.  J

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!  =)
