went to binondo and had our invites done (initial phase).
then went to divi to buy fabrics for my entourage’s gowns. and my mom’s. and mine too.
i actually thought going to divi on a weekday would not be as congested as going there on a weekend. it wasn’t really congested with shoppers, but the heat was really something you wouldn’t want while shopping in divi. had breakfast at around 10am. then lunch at around 2pm.
it’s actually fun, buying fabrics. while there, choosing different types of fabrics, i was actually thinking of buying other fabrics (cos they were really lovely) to be done as extra formal wear. but my saner self told my insane self that i didn’t really need it that much, so i didn’t indulge myself into buying more than i needed to.
shopping for fabrics at divi is divine. if only we didn’t have to carry everything. i was actually wishing for a ‘kargador’ while we were doing the rounds at ilaya & tabora.
while having lunch, my mom told me that i have to give her money for the fabric she bought for herself. i asked her how much and was a little flabbergasted at the amount. the fabric for her gown’s actually much more expensive than mine (and to think, i should be the star at the occasion, right?)
it was fun choosing from different styles of tiara’s i wanted the little girls to wear. and everything is cheap (except for my mom’s fabric, hahaha).
anyway, right now, i’m actually having the feeling that ‘this is it’. this is the start. start of something new. i’m going into something i’m not actually sure i’m prepared for. but what the heck, i had to start sometime. why make it any later.
my semi-OC self has actually just finished doing the accounting of my expenses today. and i’m a little short. can’t think of anything else i might’ve spent on. hmmn… it might take me a while to remember. i knew i should’ve asked for receipts. at all times.
the trip going home was actually tiring. there’s traffic everywhere. we took a sidetrip to my aunt’s house for i wanted to borrow some mags from my cousin. had coffee, a couple of smokes, a little merienda, then we decided to go home.
after a tiring day like what i had today, it would be perfect to lie down, put my sooper tired feet up the wall (i heard, this could prevent varicose veins, daw!), have a nice massage, then go to sleep.
but no, my life is so imperfect right now. after the tiring day at divi. i had to report to work. night shift again. my eyes are actually needing some help to stay open… coffee. i need coffee. badly.
