1. It hides stains.
2. It detracts from poor tailoring and general wear.
3. It goes with all colors.
4. Even the cheapest of fabrics look decent in black.
5. It dresses up.
6. It dresses down.
7. It can be elegant, classic, sexy, funky or mournful.
8. It imparts timelessness to clothes.
9. It has an impressive pedigree - nuns, Audrey Hepburn, beatniks, and Morticia Addams-and is the uniform of fashion editors worldwide.
10. It can go summer or winter.
11. It has a unique ability to stand out, blend in, seduce, repel.
12. What other color does all this and takes off ten pounds? ;)

(I'm not sure if black is still the stereotype uniform of fashion editors worldwide. I love Emmanuelle Alt's style with her predominant use of black, but there are editors like Giovanna Battaglia who actually look great even with the use of color! )

This one has astonishing blue eyes.
While this female cat has the most interesting pair of eyes, one blue and the other yellow.What inspired me to write this post is the fact that "Cats" is just around the corner, coming in the month of July this year at the CCP. There's so much hype about the musical being absolutely fantastic, and I wonder if it really is as good as people say. I haven't asked my mom yet if she wants to go see, but I'm also not sure if she's already seen it...
How about you? What do you think? Is it really the must-see musical of a lifetime? :)

I wore this lucky charm bracelet I just got from my mom from Barcelona, it has a pendant of the Lady of Montserrat...I did a bit of research, and I found out she's known as the black Madonna.
People also believe that Lady Montserrat is capable of making miraculous things happen. I hope that by wearing the bracelet, the luck would rub off on me too :)

They say that there's always a rainbow after the rain. But where is the rain? I've been making my own rain by using rain makers and fountains in our office, even using this rainbow colored playboy watch. I guess it's a fresh change from my boring old silver watch.
I hope everyone reading will try to keep safe from getting burned this summer. It's necessary to check all plugs and cables before leaving the house to make sure nothing will create unwanted sparks. And let's not forget about our own selves...do not forget to wear and reapply sunblock. Unless you want to accompany me as I scale like a snake. hahaha :)

If you're looking for natural thrills, you should try Palawan. It's a beautiful island in the Philippines that is still rich in natural resources. They offer a lot of activities, some of which I've only tried for the first time during my stay there. I've been to Palawan before when I was younger, but I never had as much adventure as I did this time.
To name a few of the thrills we got, we rode a small boat not much bigger than a kayak - late at night through a mangrove lake that could go as deep as 40 feet to see fireflies, myriads of stars, and beautiful sparkling planktons. We also paddled through a dark and deep underground river filled with swallows and bats and got educated about cave formations. And of course, a trip to the island is not complete til you've swam with the fishes in this beach-rich archipelago. Luckily I only made acquaintances with fishes and not with the jelly type. :)
Here are a few photos I was able to take during our last day, since I wasn't able to take much during the first few very adventurous (to the point of being almost dangerous) days.
Taken at the Estrella Falls (estrella is Spanish for stars - it got it's name because the sky in the area is starry at night). It's my first time to try this slow shutter effect, I've seen it before in a photobook. Pretty cool huh?
Something you'd normally see in the countryside.
Of course, my trip won't be complete without a visit to the shops as well.
