Distressed, de-stress

23 Oct

Gawd, the past few weeks have been godawful! Swamped with too much work (which, I know, ako rin ang may kagagawan) and now I have to finish a major, major project due Monday. Sobrang nai-stress ako, work has literally been breaking my back.

I was initially thinking of getting a massage and buying a memory pillow at SM to help my back.  But look what I ended up buying.

It’s a Parisian Junior size 40. I bought it just because it fits kahit hindi pa tinutupad ng SM ang kahilingan ko.

I also bought Maru a plastic dinosaur toy.  Maru’s fixated on dinosaurs, I don’t know where he saw them aside from Barnie and the Toy Story.  I wanted to buy him Rex, but it’s P3,500!

So I got him this instead.

A plastic triceratops, which he carries with him all around the house.

Okay, I know. Our house is a mess. And creepy. And it’s being claimed by the Laperals, I heard. Hahaha!

They don’t have it all

13 Aug

I have huge feet and it’s always been a problem to find nice shoes for me.  That’s why whenever I find one I really like, most of the time I buy it na before size 10.5 runs out.

Last Saturday, before going to Embassy to cover an event, my rather new SM Parisians disintegrated.  With only an hour left to find new shoes, I decided to make a quick stop at SM and went straight to the Big Sizes section.


Are they referring to big people or big shoes?  Because honestly, I couldn’t find the “chic” in these shoes.


Because my idea of chic shoes are something like those in HER shoe cabinet.

sea of shoes

Unfortunately, they’re shoes I can never afford.  Because at my current state, buying one would be like Gloria spending P1M for a simple dinner.  Pero teka, baka Rep. Romualdez would give me a shoe treat?  Or baka puwedeng ipagaya?

In fairness to SM, I think they’re trying their very best to improve the shoe designs.  Because there’s this small corner that carries these.


Not exactly my type. But finally I found one that suits my liking.


Kaso they don’t have a 10.5.  So I got the one with the white nguso instead.


At may paltos pa raw talaga ang paa ko no!

Now a plea to SM: Please make nicer shoes for people like me.  I really love shoes and finding nice shoes that fit can get really frustrating.  Hot tip: I love heels.  Make them sturdy, please.
