Here's the actual size. Aylavettttt!
(although I'm really leaning more towards the red one right now)
Each model has its good and bad points. The one I want is sleeker and more fashionable looking but reviews say there's something awkward about the zoom feature. The 2nd one, on the other hand, is a bit heavier but with 4.0" zoom --- perfect for landscape and group photos.
Features wise, the 110 IS is of course more advanced --- hence, the difference in the price tag. Oh well, I guess it will all boil down to the "touch and feel" experience once I'm in the store. Whooooopeeeeeeee!!!

Reading glasses? Just find your grade and the style that best suits you. If you're just like my DH, you'll want to buy several of these. He keeps forgetting where he puts his so now, he has one in the car, one on his work desk and another one in the patio where we read our morning papers hahaha!
Baskets so cute! You can use these to put small food items or pastries and give them away during the holidays.
Those are all the photos I could manage to take. Too bad I totally forgot to take photos of my loot but here's what I got : Kitchen sponges, 3 sets of fabric woven coasters, some wooden spoons, cosmetic cleansing pads (130 pcs a box), a gazillion pens and gel rollers, markers, bull clips, pet bottles (of course) and wipe cloths. See? Nothing I don't need!
But this one was truly enjoyable despite the limited time.

And now this! I just hate hearing or reading about accidents involving children. But I can't resist these articles because I know there's a lesson somewhere that's waiting to be picked up by the rest of us clueless folks. Can a parent ever learn to forgive him/herself for losing a child this way? I've always been the panicky/worrier type and people kid me about this all the time (sometimes, I feel, to the point of wanting to strangle me for being so overprotective of my kids). Do I care? I DON'T. At the end of the day, I'd rather be "mocked" for being a stage mom than find myself in a situation like this.
For a week now, I've been saying a prayer for Franco Eugenio, his cousin Anton and grandmother Daisy. And now I'll be adding Mike Tyson's little girl to my prayer list. I pray, too, for Mike Tyson's 7 year old son who discovered his little sister hanging on the treadmill with that cord around her neck.
I'm feeling depressed all over again...

It all started on the evening of May 26 when I attended the pre-MYOH special event at the Rockwell Tent with my good friends and fellow flip flop addicts. I brought home a complimentary pair which I customized to my own liking. (See first picture)
A couple of days later, we were back with a vengeance but this time it was on the first day of the actual Make Your Own Havaianas event. Armed with all that energy and excitement, I ended up bringing home a total of 4 pairs (one was for Mom and it doesn't appear in the pictures here because she wore them right away).
With the rest of the afternoon free, Pia and I decided to spend the rest of the day leisurely at the mall. Lunch at Pepper Lunch was our first stop after spending about 3 hours at the tent making our flip flops. We were starved!!! Pao and her Achie decided to go home after that so Pia and I were pretty much by ourselves the rest of the time.
What do you do with all that free time???
I guess you very well know the answer to that by now. Suffice it to say...it was truly a PRODUCTIVE afternoon for the both of us.
(Shoe)Shopping is most fun when in the company of someone who truly understands HAHAHA!!!
I just realized we didn't even take pictures of ourselves. How??? Our hands were too busy carrying our shopping bags.
Anissa will surely benefit from my Havaianas loot. She and I now have the same shoe size (listen to me justify).
lomo cam and beach pins.
Pair #4: red soles, brown straps, vintage and limited edition pins (latter not in pic)
Pair #5 from Moana in Power Plant: Soft Violet Top
I was never fond of anything violet or purple but I couldn't resist this one. So pretty!
Pair #6 also from Moana: Slims in Bubble Gum
The very last pair in this color and it was my size. Meant for me!
Pair #7 from Stella Luna, Power Plant: Love at first sight!
I've already used this twice since Thursday.
