It's supposedly Saturday! Considering how tiresome this week had been, this Curacha actually preferred to stay at home, apologize for being unable to meet Claire for her birthday/benefit gig and cuddle our spoiled furball named Johann all night. When I received my youngest cousin's birthday invite midweek, I already know they won't accept any excuses. After all, we can't gather in my place peacefully with Johann around. He may look super cute and all, but he's one unfriendly, sex-starved monster.
Realizing it's one humid evening, I decided to look for this brown Versace dress (don't you just love ukay ukay shops?) for its thin fabric. It matches my new and surprisingly tiny chocolate brown bag (tiny for my reputation) and overused bronze flats. The best finisher for this monochromatic ensemble? Bronze lips! So I combined my tinted lip balm and Tupperware's Golden Goddess lipstick (can you believe it?). Special shout out to my Tupperware lady at work!
Ok, ok. I bet you notice how drowsy I looked in some photos so far. At the risk of sounding defensive, I just downed one bottle of Tanduay Ice and asked for iced tea slush next. After my unexpected gag show moment during the last cousinhood gathering for Minnie's 25th beerday, I realized my getting-healthier body can't take as much alcohol anymore.
It just occurred to me that Zeze just turned 18. I remember how she served as my mini-me during my own 18th birthday party. [I know, I know. But my dad insisted. Unica hija daw ako eh.] We were wearing matching gowns and she was seated nearby during the entire program. The mini-me is now a lady! And she's leaving for Guam in the near future! [insert sobs here].
