Warped In Art

Lately, I'm fascinated with Art... As in paintings, drawings, sculptures, poems, music, everything... It all started when my cousin BBC, gave me a 1.5 x 1.5 ft Ivan Acuna... Me and my DH were so overwhelmed that we were forced to extend our living room just to make this beautiful work of art fit in our home. See JCC? Look what you and your hubby did to us??? And now, we're officially broke!!!

The worse part is, I still have to buy more accents and furnitures for this extension... Currently, we're halfway complete, (jeez, halfway?!? does it ever end?) but the problem is, I can never stop this wanting and needing spasms!!! Especially when I window shop or browse fashion and home magazines, grrrrr!!!!

And then, here's another story: Last Thursday, on one of our typical weekly session nights, we were introduced to Artists: Federico Sievert and Grace De Jesus (married). OMG, Is this just coincidence or am I warped to the realm of Arts and Culture??? And I thought, whoa, this is going to be grrreatttt!!!
And bumpy!!! Muwahahahahha!!!!! I've learned that they were members of Sanggawa, and many of their works were sold in famous galleries in Manila and abroad. Saw their works, and again, don't even know where and how to pay, but I got one!!! I just thought that it would look great on my wall!!! So here it is... Forgive me for this dark, blurry shot, I used my 2 megapixel credit card sized camera and this is what I get... Anyway, don't ask the price (the painting) coz' it would just make matters worse...

Sigh... Change topic, It just gives me headaches thinking of where and how to buy cheap moolah!!! Teehee...

By the way, here's what we had
on our typical session night: Chicken and Shrimp Fetuccine Pesto, Samosas, Spring/Egg Rolls (care of BBF), sausages, and lotsa San Mig Light...

Last night, as I was up
cleaning my dresser, I noticed my favorite Eau De Cologne, Jo Malone Grapefruit and Rosemary Scent. My DH love it too... He said I smell rich! Muwahahaha!!! Does it mean matronic rich??? Teehee!!! Actually, the scent is undescribably and magically aromatic, makes the wearer exude confidence. Whenever I wear it, I always get asked what scent it is... Now, I am soooo sad coz' it's half empty... I don't know if it is sold here in Manila, and i'm sure it would be a lot expensive... I bought this one in Neiman Marcus, C.O.D. (care of Daddy) and I'm not so sure if I can buy another bottle out of my own pocket, oh pity me... Now, they've added new scents in their line and I can't help it! I can smell them just by looking at the picture!!! (Nectarine and Honey, and below, Orange Blossom, also my favorite) See??? Aren't they irresistible???

Today, it's Saturday, I'm planning to go malling (look only and see what's new) before I meet up for coffee with friends MchC, TrvC, MG, AIH, PDL, and her fiancee, CCY... We'll finalize the arrangements for the upcoming bridal shower...

'Be back later...
