i like to talk politics but i am ashamed to admit that i’ve only been a registered voter for almost a month. yes, i know! i have an excuse, i was 18 when i moved to new york and when i moved back to MNL permanently, i never had the time nor the pathos to vote. i did not have the right to complain about government/national issues. and that’s really shameful.
so this time, i took it upon myself to take the time and the effort to line up and register myself to vote. i took the day off, went to my city’s COMELEC office and lined up just like everybody else. it was, quite honestly, a liberating and powerful experience. i also moved towards encouraging people like myself – liberal, educated, successful, young and driven – to register. there really is no excuse not to register and to vote. we’re the future of this country, we are only to blame for who we vote and who runs this darn country. there are so many issues that need to be resolved. i also am very passionate about specific laws such as THE REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH BILL.
to people who have not yet registered, you have today and tomorrow to register. here’s a link i got from spot.ph (via wysgal) – tips on when, where and how to register. really helped me a lot. i also suggest bringing unregistered friends, especially now that i heard the wait can go up to 7.5 hours! COMELEC hours have been extended – 8am-9pm today, 8am-12mn tomorrow.
so please – MY PEOPLE! MY FRIENDS! MY PEERS! let your voice be heard. ROCK THE VOTE.
thanks to chuvaness, power plant mall, the french embassy and rustan’s for inviting me to the coco avant chanel premiere last monday. it was really a treat to be one of the first people to watch the movie in MNL. the fashion was amazing, as one should expect from a movie about one of the most revolutionary women in fashion. we wouldn’t be wearing black, trousers or the LBD without coco!
and great to meet kate torralba, a twitter star i follow! truly the renaissance woman.

wouldn’t be awesome to have that backdrop for your wallpaper at home. LOVE!
as you all know, i’ve been such a madonna since i was 5 years old. i’ve always loved her- i was mesmerized by her unconventional style and awed by her unabashed defiance against gender conventions. and i’ve written all about it for this sunday’s philippine star.

remember the time i was obsessed with getting a chanel-themed tat? well, i got it and contrary to popular belief, it is not a tattoo of the interlocking Cs, ok!
anyway, as it turns out, kaiser karl made the models in the most recent chanel show sport rub-on chanel tattoos on their wrists. varying chanel accessories were the theme – chains, pearls and charms.

i love it. wish i could get another tat but i promised my mother the leo symbol i got a month ago (technically, i have 3 in total) would be the last one. on a side note, my mother is hilarious coz when she saw the 3rd one, she told me “in a 100 years, when archeologists dig up your well-preserved remains, they’d think you’re a tribeswoman”. harhar.
but, chanel + tattoos = <3.
minus 10,000 pogi points. blech.
