college ball, frustrations, and a LOT of pictures
i spent saturday at the araneta coliseum, ooh-ing and aah-ing at the opening ceremonies of the university athletic association of the philippines (uaap) season 71. my school, the university of the philippines, is this year’s host and my oh my did we put on a great show. i can say with all honesty and without bias (well, maybe a little) that it’s the best opening i’ve seen so far — and i’ve attended the last six programs.
the rest of the day was spent wandering around malls. i went in several sports shops like nike where i felt really out of place with the way i was dressed. then i watched hancock in the evening. it was funny, yes, but turned out to be a bit of a let-down in the end. i don’t know, i think i expected way too much from it.
i really, really want this dress. it’s been splattered all over fashion blogs (at least, in a couple i’ve seen) and i’ve literally been stalking it at the topshop site. sadly, it’s nowhere here in manila, although there are some cute button-down shirt versions of it that i am SO tempted to buy instead. but i have been a loyal stalker, wishing for nothing but the gingham dress-perfection that’s been haunting my dreams.
