Sunday is such a bittersweet day. Sweet because it offers a lot of bonding - time with God, time with family, time with friends, and some quality "me" time. But then again, it becomes bitter at the end of the day. It will be the mark of the start of school - Monday. Oh, the #MondayBlues!

I just wore a simple ensemble that is both appropriate in Church and as well comfortable in running errands. And gladly, the boots doesn't hurt at all! Indeed boots are made for walkin'! ;)

It's Wednesday. The schedule for wearing something splendid and taking a rest from our monochromatic uniforms. Since my brother is in Manila, I had the luxury of hoarding his closet (Bwahaha!) One evidence of it, is this checkered button-down shirt I'm wearing ;)

I sported a middle parted hair today. This is so not me. This is so unusual and unlikely. This is indeed out of the ordinary. You don't see me wearing this hairstyle this much. But I loved it anyway! Refreshing to see something new! Don't you think?

 You may think that I am not yet satisfied with the weather in Davao that I just went off to Buda for a much colder feels. But really, I wasn't (If you ever wondered). Me and my co-researchers with our adviser (and her family plus my driver) had our weekend at Buda not for some roadtrip, nor some R&R time or a weekend getaway. We were all there for the sampling for our thesis - hunting down every bit of frog species in the wilderness! ;)

 As expected, it was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more cooooolder in Buda! The toughest thing to do while you're there? It would be going for a bath! The water is so cold to the nth degree (T_T). And oh also we went inside the forest at the middle of the night looking for frog species and our only source of light was our flashlights and not to mention it was raining plus it was freezing cold! Imagine that.

  I piled on some layers for this trip, the cold was just unbearable (I guess the cold bothered me anyway! Sorry Queen Elsa). Brought every clothing that could warm me up - sweaters (lots of it even oversize!), jacket, coats, tights and socks! It's a must. It's a need. It's everything to keep you warm (and alive!).

After days of pouring rain and shivering in cold, Mr.Sun finally decided to come out! (Take off your sweaters and wear your sunnies!) I guess the feud is over between rain and shine (or so I thought?). Did Mr. Sun really took home the bacon? Hmm. I guess not, rain is still showing up though. Pouring heavy during evenings and dawns. (Fashionably late? Haha!) Not so brave of Mr.Rain eh? Hiding from Mr. Sun! Which side are you on? Team Rain or Team Shine? ;)

I felt a lil bit sport-y last #WednesdayWashday! So I let out my inner athlete self. To tell you honestly, I'm not the athlete type kind of girl (Booo mee!). I'm not even good at sports, not even one! (Pssh, I suck!) I only play during P.E because every student is obliged (even though you have no clue) to play. Because if you won't? You're going to FAIL! Lil bit harsh for non-sport-y people right? I feel you.

Since I don't excel on the field, might as well excel something where I don't get hit by the balls, or get injured, or get multiple bruises and whatnot. Might as well turn this frustration into what I'm best at (which I think it is. Hihi. #SelfProclamation!) 

I really love the black-white-red color blocking combo plus the polka-dots-and-houndstooth print on print pairing! I, too, get surprised on the things I match with. I guess I'm such a great matchmaker! #MinggayTheMatchMaker. Lol :D

Hi, it's me again (in sweaters!). Well, lately I've been sporting sweaters (I think you do too!) because of the unending rain and the cold weather. This particular day wasn't raining at all but it was gloomy. I was kind of relieved to have seen the remnants of Mr.Sun coming back. But then again, I didn't trust what I've been seeing since the weather now is bipolar (Just like me! Haha!). Oh boy, I was right! Gloomy. Lil bit sunny. Then it rained! Oh the typical mood swings of our bipolar weather. ;)

Although I was happy with the cold weather since we don't really experience this much, (feels like I'm in Forks!) I was devastated to hear some bad news especially the ones in our region. Never ending blah reports of flood, landslides, and other destruction caused by the heavy rain for the past few days. Let's all pray for our dear Kababayans! And for us, as well as for them - 
Stay safe and dry! :)

Paired the timeless black & white ensemble for my #OOTD. Yes, I am mourning for the loss of Mr.Sun. Gone are the golden hours of heat and radiance (but mostly heat). But anyway, THE COLD NEVER BOTHERED ME ANYWAY! Imagine me singing that line as Queen Elsa. Clearly, I haven't moved on yet from the movie "Frozen". #SorryNotSorry!

Facial hair all over my upper extremities. Origami skorts on my bottom. Spiky loafers on my feet. Refined wine on my lips. Now, that is what I call grunge! (Not the typical Minggay) ;)

The weather in Davao is being slutty again. #SnuggleWeather! Usually weather like these makes me so lazy that the bed always pull me down every time I try to get up. (Yes, I have an intimate relationship with my bed!) But today is an exception. I didn't feel like staying at home at all (so me and my bed broke up, temporarily.) It was an opportunity to wear *drumrolls please* - SWEATERS!

I really have an affinity towards the cold weather. It doesn't bother me at all. If I were to choose between hot or cold? I'd definitely choose cold! (Ice, ice, baby!) Experimented with sweaters over dresses and I was surprise to see such inseparable pairing! ;)

And who doesn't love the rain btw?! (Sorry hydrophobes :p) My inner child-like syndrome is functioning again! Playing in the rain were one of my fave past times since I was a kid! (I hope kids today still enjoy that though)

Since it was gloomy, of all hues in gray and blues. I didn't want to blend in with the colors of sadness. Instead, I opted to wear happy tones! As a result, my #OOTD feels like I'm a dessert waiting to be devoured by hungry children. Don't you think? No? Okay fine. (HAHA!)

What I'm Wearing: Sweater - Stradivarius | Dress - Kids Of Bayo | Hat - WAGW (What A Girl Wants) | Loafers - Primadonna | Socks - Forever 21 | Bag - Aldo |
