Create thy own Javainas! April 27, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — joykablogs @ 7:37 pm

It’s Make Your Own Havaianas time once again! I finally had the chance to take my DSLR with me, luckily I was with Danna, my niece who was always ready to pose for me which infuriated me in the long run coz she always manages to look good at just about any angle (bakit hindi napunta sa pool of genes ko yan?!?!).

I love this event. It’s meant for people like me who just hates to see someone else wearing the exact same stuff that I have. What better way to resolve that than to make your own, right? right….

It was soooo crazy inside as everyone’s going gaga over how to mix and match their soles, straps and pins. I realized I have minor attention problems, too many choices confuse me kaya napagawa tuloy ako ng 2 pairs para lang matahimik na ko. My kuya and sister in law were even crazier as they ended up bringing home 10 pairs!

On a side note, nakakaaliw yung mga assistants sa MYOH. They look like Santa’s little elves with their gadgets and stuff, making creations based on our whims all to our own delight!

Went back to Rockwell the following day for a day of pampering, shopping and good food with my most favorite roomie in the world – Lovella!


The Joy Raymundo Breakaway Plan April 26, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — joykablogs @ 7:38 pm

The Joy Raymundo Breakaway Plan

1. Find a new hobby.
2. SHOP!
3. Finish my pending books to read.
4. Give in to Paolo’s jogging/running invites.
5. Embrace the photographer wannabe in me and take more pictures.
7. Get in touch with friends I haven’t talked to in a while and BUG them to meet up with me.
8. Answer texts. Immediately!
9. Adhere to Saturday morning breakfasts with Paolo, week-end afternoon coffee meet-ups with Sandra and Bi-weekly mani-pedi sessions with Lovella.
10. Be alone and BE cool with it.

Until one morning, I’ll wake up and find I’m thinking about something else, and then I’ll know the worst is over. My heart might be bruised, but it will recover, and become capable of seeing the beauty of life once more. It’s happened before, it will happen again, I’m sure. When someone leaves, it’s because someone else is about to arrive — I’ll find love again.” Paulo Coelho


Puppy Love April 12, 2010

I am in love with the sweetest puppy on earth! His name is Kirky the mighty Yorkie! He likes milk, cuddling, the subtle scent of powder and Rockwell, yes the mall Rockwell. I’ve given him all the possible toys on earth but somehow I think he’s decided that I’m going to be his favorite toy.

Finally got to install wordpress in my phone after bazillion attempts in downloading it. After a 3 year relationship with my phone, I am finally Blackberry savvy! Move over Steve Jobs and Bill Gates as I am definitely making waves in the world wide web! Today my blackberry, tomorrow the WORLD!

Fine! I know OA and perhaps there’s only one person in this world who would understand my ecstacy in finally being able to have ready access to my blog (globe tattoo and websense- boo!). Just let me enjoy this moment besides this will just be a moment and because it could only take a moment to take this moment away from me!

So to my readers, those who just happen to stumble in my blog, to my secret followers, to my reluctant blog admirers and to the other lurkers out there – I’m Back!
