#ALMbisyosa Series: The #ALMbisyosa daughter

“The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words.” 

My mom loves taking pictures, she wants to capture every moment especially during occasions.  I remember when I was a kid, she would let me change outfits, do some make up, hold the telephone and pretend that I am talking to someone and she will take pictures of me.  So don't wonder why I love posting pictures, with or without occasion, because mana ako sa nanay ko.   But of course, the "heritage" of taking photos will also be passed my lovely daughter..I 'm posting some of her "ARTE photos" here so you will see and just make the judgment!

#ALMbisyosa Series: Gray and Gray

I love that I bought a lot of wardrobe last year that I can still use now.  I stick to have almost 50% classics in my closet, 30% prints and 20% trendy.  For shoes - I always have the basics but I have plenty - as in more than 20 pairs!

This is the season of attending Christmas parties and staying late night.  The agony of waking up early in the morning to report for work is a pain in the ________, don't you agree.  if I could just sleep all day and party at night - that would be awesome . 

Today, we'll have another Christmas party with the Sales Team and for sure, it's gonna be so fun and we will all get boozed!  Since I need to recharge , I decided not to wear heels and skirt - and dress comfortably and wear safe colors. Here you go!

and the #ALMbisyosa is back!

Almost two months had passed.  I left the job I enjoyed for 9 1/2 years, and I pushed myself to move on to take a new leap.  The leap was more than I expected, a lot of great opportunities came:) a lot of people were surprised and happy.

I stopped posting for awhile because of Instagram and also, I focused on doing other things.

Since it's been awhile that I haven't posted here, I am sharing some of what I 've been doing for the past few weeks.. Ciao!

#ALMbisyosa Series: Rainy Boots Monday

It's been raining since Saturday, classes were suspended this morning but private companies have work today.
This is the best time to have DVD marathon at home while eating your favorite Cheetos with Coke Zero.
And since we are obliged to go to work, besides it's payday, we have the reason to wear our boots today!!
Who says you cant be fashionable on a stormy day?

#ALMbisyosa Series: And the winner is.......

One of the reasons why you need to consider working in an agency is receiving recognition of your campaigns from different award giving bodies.  When I started working in GMCI (GeiserMaclang Marketing Communications, Inc.), I have not yet realized that this will be my career, that this will  give me recognition I never expected.  Just so you know, I have accepted that I don't need commendations from other people to be motivated, as I know that I fulfill myself - that's my motivation (PAT ON THE BACK:) - to be excellent in what I do and to have my own identity...and I dont want to expect recognition from anybody ---- talk about false hopes! Motivation comes from yourself FIRST.

Nonetheless, I am still very grateful (and happy:) receiving awards from the campaigns I directly name a few, National Thank You Day, Wyeth's Bata Movement, Barbizon Mommy Milkshake..these have received awards from different organizations.  Recently, the Aray Ko Galing Ko won several awards . Blued Stylepreneur, which was managed by Anika Punzalan  (ex-GMCI) and Andrew Sha, won an award too:)

Sharing with you photos from the 47th Anvil Awards....

And of course, I dont want to miss this chance to have my photo taken.  Thanks to Tina Antonio of GMCI for taking this shot!

White Dress: HK
