No non-sense return policy

I planned on watching the Brazil vs Portugal game on our Plasma TV, but when I turned the TV on, I saw Ivory Coast vs. North Korea. Seriously? Do they not want more viewers? Brazil vs Portugal is obviously the more intense match. So now I’m in front of my tiny 10 inch net book watching the game on live stream. (i love you, adthe.) It’s 0-0 as of now for Brazil vs Portugal. It’s 0-2 for North Korea-Ivory Coast. I’m not surprised. Anyway, I’m torn between Brazil and Portugal. I’m for both teams. But anyway, unless Ivory Coast scores 9 goals against North Korea, and Portugal loses against Brazil, the both teams are surely qualified.

Anyway, I was at Ikea the other day. This is their return policy:

Shop with confidence at IKEA. Almost every thing you buy is backed by The No-nonsense Return Policy. If you are not satisfied with something you’ve bought, just bring it back unassembled within 30 days, in its original packing and with the receipt, and we will refund you or exchange it for something else. After all, it’s human to change your mind, and we want you to be happy with your purchase

They make a very philosophical, but valid, point. I wish life had a no non-sense return policy.


Today my mom is considering signing up for a facebook account because I seem to be enjoying my bum days on it a lot. She wants to know what all the fun is about. Haha.


Congratulations to the Philippine Team, represented by BAYAN Marketing, for winning the Silver Cannes Lion Young Marketers Award. Go Filipino!

On a lighter note…

I felt my first post was kind of heavy. So here’s one on a lighter note. I realized how hard it was to dress up now, mainly because I live with my parents now and so I can’t wear what I used to wear. (They want me to throw my shorts away). It’s also because I’ve gained a lot of weight as a bum. Plus, I’d rather dress conservatively to avoid being talked about by other people (since most people aren’t used to seeing too much skin here)

This is what I wore out today:

I don’t like posing for these kinds of pictures so I didn’t know what to do with my hands in the second picture. There’s my brother in the background of the first picture. He was the one who (reluctantly) took the second picture.

To be cliche, I will break down the outfit.

Tube top: Mango (P400)

Skirt: SM Department Store (P400? I forgot.)

Cardigan: Thrift store (P80)

Anyway, something cute. My friend and I ordered shakes in the mall a few days back. The colors are so cute.

That’s Watermelon Shake (Left) and Mango Shake (Right)

Girly, i know.

World Shopping Championships

I got one of the most interesting e-mails earlier:

So I get to shop, and win money? Wow this is a great deal for me. Unfortunately, I don’t have enough money to participate. Woe is me.

But this is a very tempting competition to join. I’m more likely to join this than any sporting event. Well I’m a girly girl, go figure.

Today, I found out I had a prayer group of 20 people praying for my thesis every Saturday until my defense. I knew it was divine intervention. Aside from that and the world shopping championship, nothing interesting really happened today, well except for that fake priest excommunicated a few weeks back (Link). Why would anyone do that.
