The chic pistachio and pastel pink colored Vespas are reminiscent of Dear Darla, Yellow Cab’s healthy pizza option.

Carnival de Rainhas or “Carnival of Queens” is an annual festival held in Bethlehem, Brazil, celebrated a month before Easter and serves as a farewell to negative experiences of the past year.
Similarly, this event serves as the sorority’s farewell to the past school year, ushering a new one in celebration of its 6th anniversary.
Being the oldest sorority in the Ateneo Law School with the most number of bar topnotchers, Regina Iustitiae’s vision is to be a catalyst for women empowerment, seeking to produce excellent women lawyers.
The sorority is proud of its annual bar operations, where it takes care of its barrister sisses by providing for reviewers, hotel accommodations, food and other needs to ensure they are successful in passing the bar.
In line with this, all proceeds of Carnival de Rainhas will benefit the bar operations.

Entrance fee: Php 100, which comes with a free game
The event is made possible through the sponsorship of Yellow Cab, Petron and Seair.

Team Jake

I’m nursing a high school crush on Jake Rosati of MTV’s new series, Awkward.
Played by actor Brett Davern, Jake is quite ordinary in the looks department, bruth to tell, there are no hot guys in Awkward. The hottest guy would probably be Jenna Hamilton’s dad (closer to my age group). But I find Jake so cute because he’s such a nice guy.

Brett davern

As Class President, that means he’s also smart and popular enough to be elected by the student body. He can hang with the cool guys as well as the geeks.
He’s dating a pretty blonde cheerleader, but secretly in love with an ordinary girl named Jenna Hamilton.
That doesn’t make him a bad guy. I mean haven’t you been in a relationship (not married) and secretly wished you were with someone else?

Brett davern

This is where Jake is at and the way he drops hints at Jenna (who is into Jake’s best friend Matty) makes me feel giddy and high school again.

Brett davern

I actually followed Brett Davern on Twitter.
As for his acting ability, while in high school he earned a scholarship to Stagedoor Manor Performing Arts Training Center, whose impressive alumni includes Oscar nominees Robert Downey, Jr. and Natalie Portman, and Emmy Award-winner Jon Cryer.
Google told me he 29 years old, playing a convincing 16- or 17-year-old high school student.
That means he already has a brain and is not a baby!

Brett davern

Too young for me, but good enough for Grace who is 33. (We had this discussion on the phone earlier.)
Of course this is all so dumb because we are in love with the fictional character, Jake Rosati, and not the actor Brett Davern—who are totally different people.
That said, I am obsessed with Awkward and cannot wait for the next episodes.

I’m beck!

I had a mission to buy shoes and a bag while in Singapore, and I got those and more. Not bad for only two days of shopping. I got three pairs of shoes and finally, the PS Selma chair I’ve been eyeing for years in Ikea.

Ikea chair

I love this chair because it comes with “pages” of printed graphic cushions.
You can adjust the seat to the height or print you want. This was the Hong Kong price (HK$2,990 = Php 16,300)

Nice Ikea chair

The New York price (US$349 = Php 14,800)

ICFF 09: IKEA PS Collection

In Singapore it cost SG$399 (Php 17,000, but with the GST refund, maybe the same as HK price).
It took me a while to buy the chair (about six different trips) because I was afraid of its size and 18-kg. weight. Turns out the box wasn’t as big as I thought. Ana helped me tie it.


I was able to check it in the plane earlier (no overweight, so yay!!).
Another thing I really wanted was the Nightingale trolley by Givenchy.
For a few years now I’ve been using the same Chanel trolley and lamenting that you once you put your laptop in, you can’t really put a whole lot of things inside.

I love my closet

I love bags with wheels. This is the trolley on Rachel Bilson


Then the Givenchy trolley came out, and thought hey that looks cute, though it looks a little big and heavy



But not on Blake Lively


It took me two trips to Singapore to decide that I need it, so my Dad got me one and it fits in the overhead compartment! Yay!

Nightingale trolley

So yes the trip was a success and I’m glad to be back.
