Rainy Day Hassles

Oh how I hate rainy days! It makes me sleep longer than I should. It makes me too lazy to go to work. It makes my mood as gloomy as the weather. It makes me wanna eat more than I have eaten on normal days.

Must Love Orange

I love orange, both the color and the fruit. I wear orange-colored tops even if they make me look darker than I already am. For me, orange is a vibrant color and helps brighten my mood. As with the fruit, I eat oranges not only because of its Vitamin C content but also because of its citrusy, sweet taste.


The rainy season makes me crave for oranges. Whenever I feel that I’m going to catch cold, I eat oranges to prevent it. I just can’t afford to get sick and be idle. Especially these days when I’m always swamped with work and there’s very little time for me to do the things I love: watching Korean dramas, checking out my fave blogs, marveling at the latest sportswear and stickem archery equipment, experimenting in the kitchen, reading a book and going out with the fiancee.

Do you like orange as well?

Aren’t these booties too cute for words? I want a pair, at least. I have a pair of boots (my one and only pair), yes, but they’re not for the rains. While looking for rain boots online, I saw these beautiful rain boots and thought to myself, how come I don’t see them here in Manila? That, or maybe I just don’t go out enough to spot them on girls like me.
