CURLY FOR A DAY. I’ve grown my hair long and have been bored with its straight look for the longest time. That is why I was doubly thrilled when I had a hair-curling session in SM today en route to buying the UK-made JML ProCeramic Straightener (P1,199.00) It is actually a straightening iron which lets you create “spiral curl effects” on your hair as well. Hmm, what do you think? I was glad that a lady customer gushed today : “Ang ganda naman ng hair mo.” I think curly hair is exciting and never boring. Too bad, I know I will not be able to do this by myself. I just don’t have the patience for this stuff.
My cheapo beauty tip: Do you have a date or an important appointment? Instead of going to the parlor, why not visit the make-up counters of department stores? Just buy a minor item and you can convince the bored salesladies to do your make-up for free. And oh, don’t forget to spritz on the luxury perfumes as well…

THE T-SHIRT SAYS IT ALL. I am sad that one of my best friends, Klarisse, is off to start another contract as casino dealer in this luxury cruise line. She has been my constant companion in the past month.I do love her for the fact that she bequeathed me the following items before leaving:
Sunglasses by Gucci
“I’m Good in the Sack Shirt” by David and Goliath
Victoria’s Secret undie, handbag and body spray
But what am most excited is the fact that she can sponsor me on a seven-day cruise to the Bahamas and Mexico on the date of my own choosing. Oh well, if only I could just have the darn US visa renewed without a sweat…
Miss you Klarisse…
KIDS SAY THE DARNDEST THINGS. I couldn’t help but be amused with my son when he told me this while I was putting on make-up this morning:
Him: Ma, the next time we go on vacation, can we go to Switzerland?
Me: Bakit naman gusto mo doon, anak?
Him: Because it’s very hot here, and I want to see SNOW.
Me: And what will we do in Switzerland?
Him: We will have snowball fights, of course.
*** Yes, I speak to my son in Tagalog but he insists on talking to me in English. Yay! What does that make of me? The language issue can be very ticklish in some households but I do believe that kids will learn at their own pace and time. I was raised by my grandparents who spoke Cebuano but that didn’t exactly make me a bimbo when it came to the English language, as you can see…
