after march

junior year is over and im down to my last year in uni. of course, i have to double time in terms of my studies because this is my make or break. lucky for me though, even if i dont study, i still do have high grades well i have to give credits to my family's intelligent lineage. it will be the last year that i will have to show what ive got because after that, is the real world and work. im not really sure if yesterday's news would make me smile or grin... it seems that the more you get to do stuffs on a subtle way, the more you imply things, the more you make things simpler for others, the more they dont appreciate much of it. i guess its a matter of choosing who to side and who not to. there are things which we can fathom, there are things we cant. receiving an heir would get you filthy rich but will you be able to help out if thats the case? i dont think so. having to wed a maid wouldnt get you much trouble, hence it will do you good. as for my case. a maid who is downright fat and plastic. i dont really care if they have had the heir way back time or just now. i will hopefully be graduating this year and no one can stop me except me. ill be making my own richess and ill be making my millions. i need no million if i can make 2!

i felt betrayed!

remember those times when a friend suddenly squeels about something they shouldnt tell?! i so did it! yah! i really cant believe. it was mid afternood and i hurried myself to school for our last meet in broadcast communication. but before that, i dropped by bob's cafe courtyard to take some lemonade coz its f**king hot. anyway, i got to chat with the most annoying person you could ever imagine. and so we had a chit chat and before i could say no, i just told him stuffs i shouldnt! i am so pissed that i really wanted to kill myself that instant. i rushed inside the uni and got my twin's grades. other story! but yes, i really did. and about 4 p.m. i got an mms coming from he. 'its not your story to tell, mind u' saying those words. what bothers me is that someone might have said something to him. and my first intuition, pipo. but to my dismay, it wasnt him, it was the joe's gf. where i got to eat bbq with that afternoon with joe. and so i sent her a message saying how angry i was. and she replied after a few hours. and i just told her, 'wtv!' and there was no reply! maybe she has to ponder on that! i really hate her! i do! seriously!

breathe my smoke bitch!

rugged photoshoot, color corrected but unedited

caption this! i dont shave... i was really bored that i told my cousin to take a snap of me, and she kindly did. the summer heat is freakin me out! i dont know what to wear coz it seems that everything is so hot and unwearable! but i opt not to be naked. i wanna spend my vacation at home doing movie marathons, or binge which normally is not the case. do i have to workout? my thighs are in no perfect shape and i really wanted to undergo lipo! seriously, im fat and getting fatter! help me yogurt!

when you mix denim to denimi, it doesnt seem to fit!

yeah right. lesson in life. do not match a denim top with a denim pants. that is so out of style! look how christina ricci did it! shameful! ruthless! undeniably shit! haha. ive tried that look before but it just didnt work!

im so confused as to what to do after graduation. i dont know if im still part of the latin awards but i guess not. well, its definite that graduation is just around the corner. i might as well prepare myself. i dont know what to do. i mean, i really love fashion design but i dont know if that is really my niche. up to now, im still getting to know the craft and looking up at marcjacobs, alber elbaz, john galliano, nicholas ghuesqiere etc. but i also love advertising! im so confused! i really wanted to be a part of an advertising's creative team. but recently, i just figured out that style is so into me. that i would rather sacrifice everything just to have style. like, im now hooked with style that i wanted to be a fashion stylist. smoke and drink go well together isnt it?!

not my lucky day!

this is not my lucky day. i hurried home to school only to figure out i am alone. seriously. i sat on the chair of my computer class without hi's and hello's from my classmates. it saddens me when they dont do that. but its a bitter-sweet day. i had a 98 grade at my photoshop class. my battery is off and i rode a cab home. and i have to be back again at school to attend my broadcasting classes. i hope that someday i might become the next cewebrity. haha. or at least for now, i have to delete my facebookemon friends. haha. guess ill just have to sing my heart out!

if they are think what am i?

if they are thin, then how do you call me?


omg! from a 120 to a 110, that must be something. i must say that sky flakes really does its job. when u dont want to be fat, just do a biscuit diet. well, perfectly works for me. but think of anything to substitute to that? nothing! its just it! paired with a sugar free soda, oh boy, supermodel! i dont call myself anorexic because i do eat. and binge at times. i dont even call myself bulimic because i eat. small amounts of food make you thin, whereas otherwise. remember how natalia vodianova battled bulimia out. well, she fought a fight and now she talks about how bad the effect was. not for me. i think thin persons are really fashionable. couture always is thin. size 0 is the normal size. and 1 is obesity. that's just how i see things. is there even a size called negative. in my own opinion, there is nothing wrong with fat people for as long as they live a healthy life. they say, they would rather die full than hunger-stricken. not for me! i would rather die an 86 lbs. haha.

jill sander for uniqlo

“I wanted to have a new challenge and a new dream.” words that came out of jill sander's mouth as she got an interview with WWD. japan news - jill is planning to build a new paradise! haha. jill sander launched its first collection in 1973 with shirts and coats. now she's up for yet another challenge! go jill go!

last days of junior years

this is my 2nd to the last school day of the year. here i am at our computer science laboratory for our goodbyes and grades of our desktop publishing class. sad but true. goodbye. to natasha richardson. goodbye to miss gemma chio. goodbye to zac efron as my crush. goodbye to all the friends i knew.
im a bit flabbergasted of how things passed by. i remember my first days of school and here i am savoring the last few days of my junior. its pretty wonderful the feeling. it gives me creeps to imagine how the years went progressing so is our ages growing a year older.
but luckily i was able to survive my junior year with vogue beside me. ive got all my subjects excempted and now i dont have to take the finals. lucky for me! just my luck!

we are so desktop publishing!

i havent passed yet our project for desktop. nor my quiz. but im here at our class, blogging while having a class. our teacher is discussing while im into my blog. she talks bout html thingy and i really dont care what she is talking about. she is the best in layout and design and website-ing sarcastic. she is praising her own work 'this is really good'. now if you wanna have someone to layout your greeting cards or something go to her site and you decide.

My name is Gems Chio and I'm a Freelance Web Designer, Programmer, Desktop Publisher & Graphics Artist.
there! sarahgems.com
here is a story of the carrot, the coffee bean and an egg...
She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil, without saying a word. In about 20 minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her daughter, she asked, "Tell me, what do you see?" "Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied. Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard- boiled egg. Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee. The daughter smiled, as she tasted its rich aroma. The daughter then asked, "What does it mean, mother?"
to cut the story short. what are you? a carrot, a coffee bean or an egg?! you decide!

and my feared day came!

friday night. my grandma was rushed to the hospital and was delivered in ICU. saturday morning, her sister, my grandma's lola's interment. sunday morning, her breathing became abnormal and her pulse rate were becoming fainter. sunday afternoon, she passed away.

i do not understand why things came so sudden that i just had to grieve for a loss of someone beloved and here i am again, repeating the same thing over again, but this time it was intense. she was my own blood. she was the last female legend of my lineage.

i could vividly remember how she would get mad at us when things dont go as she wanted. to run after us when we do not abide by her instructions and she would buy us stuffs we like even though she doesnt have that share of money. my grandma is someone i have been looking up. a person i trusted my life and the person i look forward greeting each day. i would tell her how much i love her and dont ellicit a response. of course! she had alzheimers.

i never did blamed God for this. but i came to ask myself why these things are happening. i came to a point where i assessed myself of the things ive been doing to show my love to my dear granny. it disheartens me to think that she was not given proper care and that she was being pulled from here and there by family members.

pathetic! how will lola see what they've done?

i never realize that my family, my own kin, will be very greedy with their wealth that even just a little, they cant spare for her.

another thing is that papa cant go back here in the philippines. she was very dear to him and that he cant accompany her to her grave. but the good thing is that he was able to show how much he loved nanay (lola) when she was still breathing. he was able to fulfill his obligation as a child thus he has nothing to worry about.

just this morning, at school, i was alone. looking at the greet grasses at the field a strong wind blew. and as i looked up the sky, i remembered my grandma, how she smiles, how she walks, even how she sings her favorite song 'walk on through the rain'. i told myself, lola is letting me feel her presence. i am loved.

if i had one thing i am sure she knew before she passed away is that i loved her as much as i loved my parents. the last words i remebered telling her were 'i love you, nay'.

i will just continue my life limping. walk with stilts and walk without someone by my side knowlegeable of the world im into. for wherever she is, i know she is safe and glorious. she fought a good fight. she was the warrior in her own battalion. she was strong. i know she was!
