He's my childhood. What represented who I used to be and who I am now. College. Such an exciting phase. 1 year to go and I'm out of it. But after watching Toy Story 3 weeks ago, I realized I missed being a kid. The Toy Story trilogy has stuck there all along.

I missed that time that I used to play toy cars especially my little red Ferrari Matchbox. Yes I had Barbie dolls but I enjoyed having Matchbox cars to play with on sand dunes, carving man-made roads with my little brother Ian, spending endless hours in the sun under the shade of our backyard trees. The fresh air, the sweet scent of weekend afternoons and trickling sweat that children ignore for the sake of playtime.

Back then, everything was simpler. Fun was easily attainable, all you had to do was play. I won't lie... it made me cry to see Andy leaving for college. It's like knowing that a part of me had gone away. Childhood. How I miss it the most.

But we can never head back, only forward though you can always choose to look behind and reminisce the good memories. You can always choose to remember your old self.

I don't really know what has driven me to write this mushy post about childhood but everytime I see that picture of young and grown-up Andy I can't help but to miss myself. :')

See you soon little Iris, I love you. ♥

The Maine

Randomly out of nothing I opened Ma's laptop and did two covers. I was on The Maine fever this weekend (blame my brother for his awesome music taste) and so I did these:

I was inspired okay? ♥ Anyway, let me know what you think.

I don't understand.

I really don't.
I feel attracted to him and it doesn't make sense.
It's not that I don't like him. It's just... it might not be mutual.

By then, I'll lose the only person I believe is my other half.

7 hours.
Estilo De Vida.

And I still don't have any floor plan, reflected ceiling plan and perspective draft.

Mission impossible.

I miss watching CSI and Kyle XY, reading approx. 8 books in one month, drowning in PHP/CSS/HTML for fun.

I want to be my old self again.

Space planning could be hard, you know?

Standard requirements for a restaurant, oh you give me headache. But at least I now have the e-book copy of Time Saver Standards for Interior Design & Space Planning. I could cry happy tears! :') My project this time is a contemporary Moroccan resto-café.

Fettucine Alfredo

Posted by Iris On 4:52 PM 0 comments

Last Sunday, I got to try Pizza Hut's pasta. GUESS WHAT! I loved it! Since I wasn't able to see a carbonara on the menu, I opted for the Fettucine Alfredo instead - and I made the right choice.

The thick creamy white sauce, bacon bits, herb, and the complementary garlic bread were superb! I think I'm in love! :)

Can't wait to try this out again!

Prada Napa Fringe Hobo. I want you, and I'll have you someday.

My little sister's wearing my shades. And she's rocking it.

Swimming Through The Static

Posted by Iris On 7:44 PM 0 comments
Not at peace with myself
I keep in touch with the past that I love so much
Now I'm swimming through the static
I'm caught in a web of my own thoughts
And I can't help it - I'm still blinded by the traffic

I'm now a fan of Rizza Cabrera. ♥

Picture Perfect

Posted by Iris On 7:01 PM 0 comments

Latest album from Every Avenue! Here's the tracklist:

1. For Always, Forever
2. Mindset
3. Tell Me I'm A Wreck
4. Picture Perfect
5. Happy The Hard Way
6. Girl Like That
7. Saying Goodbye

8. Finish What You Started
9. I Forgive You
10. The Story Left Untold
11. Clumsy Little Heart

The bold ones are my favorites but #5 gets me the most. After discovering them through their Shh. Just Go With It album, I must say that this band's really good and I MEAN IT. You gotta listen to this album and you'll know what I mean. I just wish these guys would tour Asia so they can go perform in the Philippines! I'd buy a ticket in a heartbeat!

Cute little foods

Warning: may cause sudden urge to eat, play and clench teeth. These cute stuffs will get the best of you. Severe cases are indicated by hallucination, mental incapacity and clapping of hands and screaming like a retard seal. :))

I don't know how they do it but it looks so much real! I want to try 'em out! It's called Konapun, a Japanese toy food that lets you experience the simulation of cooking. They have cakes, donuts, spaghettis, crepes, soft serve ice creams, rice, curry, french fries, takuyaki, tempura (my favorite) and more! I'm sure if these hit the Philippine shelves, it would be a blockbuster!

83-79 over Boston Celtics!

Posted by Iris On 11:37 PM 0 comments

Due to classes yesterday I wasn't able to watch NBA finals - thank God RPN9 aired a replay today! Game 7 was actually the only game I've watched but boy, it sure was a cliffhanger! Celtics were really good till 3rd quarter but Lakers unleashed their prowess by the 4th. They were all amazing! Truly enjoyed the adrenaline rush of it all! Kobe Bryant, Ron Artest, Sasha Vujacic and Pau Gasol are my boys! ♥ Looking forward to next season!

Why did I miss this?

At the condo, rehashing about where I should've been tonight. I know, ATC.

Watched The Devil Wears Prada again yesterday. This is one of the movies I don't get tired of watching over and over! Anne Hathaway (who plays Andrea Sachs) is ever so gorgeous, and Meryl Streep (Miranda Priestly) was brilliant! How could you just not love the magnificent apparel they wore? Anything fashion-related is an eye-candy for sure!

Here's a lookbook of what Anne sported in the movie!

Someone from France requested these books from my inventory in Bookmooch. They're going a long way for a charity cause in Atlanta, Georgia called Books For Keeps. I started packing them this early morning and finished around 6am. Candy magazine pages, blue Japanese paper and plastic were used. I'm so excited to send them! Problem is, where should I pack it in - brown envelope wrapper or padded envelope (which will add weight thus postage)?

I have another book to send - Dear John by Nicholas Sparks - to Ireland.
Guess I'll start packing it now.

She sat on the lounge chair, her breaths deep and careful.
She blinked her eyes once and twice,
and smelled the aroma of anticipated rain hanging heavily in the air.
She wished it would pour: light, gentle - the kind that touches the cement
and creates a misty atmosphere.

Wonderful rain, magical rain oh how you heal my soul.

Midnight book spit

How come I didn't know Abe was a vampire hunter?

From the moment I saw this book in Powerbooks at Festival Mall Alabang, I knew I was mesmerized. Heartbeat said I am longing and wanting it in my shelves. Today must be my lucky day: one copy was available at Bookmooch; however it was also a big stroke of unfortunate luck after learning that the sender was from Australia and he could only send this book within his country.

I feel like somebody else today. The Bookworm is back.

PS: If you happen to be fascinated by the smell of physical books and the thought of reading it feels like almost heaven, then you're somebody else too. And I think you should check out my other blog.
