Spooky-oke Night

84 comments
 
While my life is mostly boring work day after day, sometimes, I get the chance to go out and meet new people too. Case in point, I got to join the Spookyoke Night hosted by Pinay Curvies at Centerstage MOA where we all came in our plus size costumes and sang the night away. It was also to celebrate the 1st anniversary of our local support group that has been steadily growing in numbers. Woot!

Check out the rest of the photos for Halloween costume ideas! :)

I went as a gypsy! :)

Made In Korea

I totally forgot to publish this post of what happened during our short trip to Korea for a family vacation-slash-engagement-photoshoot around April of this year! My sister and her fiance were the first two subjects that were captured by my newly-purchased, first-ever Canon DSLR. We played around and tried sneaking away from the tour for a few minutes to get these prenup shots in for their December wedding. It was also a fun learning experience for this newbie photographer and her willing models! :)

Enjoy!

What Daughters Should Know

"Because there's nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it's sent away.
You will put the wind in "Win some, lose some."
You will put the star in starting over, and over.
And no matter how many landmines erupt in a minute, be sure your mind lands on the beauty of this funny place called life." - Sarah Kay

We all struggle with fluctuations in our self-confidence, especially when we fall short of what society deems attractive and desirable. Sometimes, our confidence is up and out there, and other times, it's hiding in a corner. A reader sent me a letter after reading this and this to share with me her personal struggles with it.

Sorry for the none-too-pretty background. Didn't have time to find a better spot as we shot this in between scheduled meetings with my sister's wedding suppliers.

Have you had one of those days where you wake up on the wrong side of the bed with the ultimate bad hair day of all bad hair days and you can't seem to look yourself in the mirror without a depreciating sneer at your reflection? I've been there, and I know just how mean I can be.

When Things Go Wrong

8 comments
 

This actually happened to me a few days ago. My poor laptop got an unexpected bath from my Starbucks coffee mug. :( Just thought I'd let you know, before someone thinks I've fallen off the edge or something. When one thing goes wrong wrong, I find that other aspects of my life follow suit in a very disorderly manner. The result is total mayhem. (Is this Murphy's law in action?)

Now the 'y' key and number '6' have overrun the whole keyboard so I had to borrow another computer just to type this out. Imagine a blog post that only contains y's and 6's? I got a little freaked out too.

Hoping to have it back in clean and working condition soon!

Hugs,
The Belated Bloomer

Seoul Teddy Bear Museum
Here's my once-in-a-lifestime photo opportunity with Prince Charles and Princess Diana bears. I'm not too fond of stuffed toys because my mom gave them away when we were little to avoid sneezing allergies, but (except for the human-sized ones), these bears are adorable!

Click through for the happenings of our last day in Korea!
