Is your hair dull, unmanageable and/or lacks shine? If the answer to all of these questions is yes, then it’s an indication that you have dry hair. Everybody wants soft and manageable hair but how do we achieve it exactly?
Last Sunday, I impulsively went to Azta Urban Salon at Eastwood to finally get my hair done. Because ombre hair is the new thing, Azta Urban Salon have decided to offer its customers the Ombre Color Technology. If I’m not mistaken, a lot of bloggers out there have tried their services.
Originally, I wanted pink ombre hair but they didn’t have any pink dye available. So I asked if it’s possible to dye my hair red so it could fade into pink, just like what happened to my highlights. My stylist, Mr. Andy, said that this was possible and the process could take at least two to three hours depending.
The nice thing about Azta is that they promise not to keep you bored while getting your hair done. They have free wifi, a wide array of magazines and milk tea. As for me, I settled for my iPad so I can finally finish Final Fantasy 3.
I don’t want to forget all the great stories we’ve made together. I want to remember them so I can share it to our grandchildren.
I want them to know the time you’ve decided to do well in programming so you could tutor and spend time with me. I want them to know how long you’ve patiently waited for me to be your girl (three years to be exact). I want them to know the other silly things you did just to make me laugh. I want them to know the time I broke up with you and the first thing you did was book a ticket to Singapore to win me back. I want them to know that you’ve made me a better person.
More importantly, I want them to know how much you love me despite my past, mistakes and flaws. You’ve been wonderful to me and I’m very lucky to have someone as understanding and patient like you.
So many thoughts, so many emotions; I don’t know which one should I deal with first. I try to escape the pain, the fear, the rejection but everytime I do, I just get sucked in. Back to square one. Consuming me once again, full of despair and hopelessness. The chaos inside my head is too much. I just want to be alone, savor the eerie silence and be at peace tonight.
Q: Ms. Kisty, you’re really awesome. And I admire your strength. Going to school abroad while handling your haters is no easy feat. I also see that you’re interested in fashion and design. :-) I’ve been reading your blog for so long now, and even though people at times say that you’re copying, you still remain respectful. I hope you find what’s truly and uniquely yours so that haters will have nothing more horrible to say.
Thank you for the very kind words. :) I have flaws and sometimes I can’t help but give in with the hate but reading messages like these makes me stronger and strive to become better. <3
paula-agbon asked you: hey kisty. thumbs up for you. i really like how you deal with that hater or haters. some people hate you because you’re too better than them they can’t reach you. stay pretty and keep your heels standing :)
I.T. lang pala kinuha mo tapos nagmamasteral ka pa.
Kung hindi narrow-minded yung magsesend ng hate mail, ubod ng tanga naman. Ano ba. :|
Una sa lahat, I.T. LANG PALA??? Hindi basta basta yung course na yun kaya huwag mong maliitin. Kung ano man ang course mo ngayon, sinisigurado ko na hindi nyo matatapatan yung ginagawa namin. Why? Kasi kung mahirap yung course mo ngayon, like Architecture, Nursing or Computer Science, for sure wala ka nang oras insultuhin yung ibang courses kasi busy ka nag-aaral para pumasa. Imagine mo nalang to, kaya mo ba ipasa ang following subjects: Calculus 1 & 2, Statistics, Accounting, and different programming classes (Java, C, C++, PHP, etc)? Kung oo, at hindi ka I.T. or any computer related course, then *bow* LEGEND KA!
Pangalawa, ano naman meron kung nag-mamasteral ako? There’s nothing wrong with getting another degree of the same course. Don’t you know that a lot of people would want to swap places with me? It’s a rare and wonderful opportunity! Hindi mo ba alam na mas magiging mataas sweldo ko pag may master’s degree ako? Yung starting salary mo ay hindi pa one-half ng magiging basic pay ko. Hindi naman ako sa nagmamayabang pero that’s one of the many expectations when you get a master’s degree. Not to mention, Australian degree pa yung kinukuha ko.
Pangatlo, huwag mainggit kasi panget tingnan. Matuto alisin yung Crab Mentality sa ugali. :) More importantly, alamin muna yung sinasabi bago insultuhin yung ibang tao.
February 14 is the day where motels and flower shops are busy, true story. I don’t know how they celebrate it in other countries but that’s how I see it in the Philippines, particularly in Manila. I never liked Valentine’s Day and never will. The insane traffic and extreme mushiness of couples just makes me sick. This day, which is not even a proper holiday, is just too commercialized because couples are forced to buy “extravagant’ gifts for each other, go to fancy restaurants and cuddle all day. Okay, there’s nothing wrong with that but love is supposed to be celebrated each and every single day. No need for a “holiday” to do that.
I don’t mind spending the day at home, with my boy and a box of pizza, playing some cool video game on my 3D TV.
Did you know that the real story of The Little Mermaid is so depressing that it wasn’t a happily ever after? And did you know that the girl on the Starbucks logo is originally a mermaid (it still is, except they’ve been cropping the fins part)? I knew this before I even verified the information from Google because we can detect our own kind. This is probably why I like to lounge at Starbucks more often than other coffee shops.
In a few months time, I’ll be turning 24. I don’t look like 24 and I certainly don’t feel like one but by then and hopefully, I have completed my master’s degree here in Singapore. I guess, 24 can be considered as an “impressive” age to be carrying a master’s degree since some people pursue it after a couple years of working. But when I look at people my age and see what they’re doing or how much they’ve accomplished in life, I feel like my pace is that of a turtle…. or maybe a snail, or even worst, a slug!
I guess the reason I’m having these thoughts is because at the back of my head, I always saw myself settling down by the age of 25. Truth be told, I’m not ready to settle down yet but I just feel that at 24, I should be preparing for my life in the near future by having a job and earning actual money. Instead, I’m here being dependent with my family because my pass forbids me to apply for a job here in Singapore and school is consuming a lot of my time already that I can’t afford to apply or do any freelance work.
I guess none of you can really relate to me because most of you guys are between 13 to 21. In fact, some of you are little sisters of blockmates (Hi, sister of Jenzo… If you’re reading this!).
I think I’m going to sketch to ease my mind off things. Good night!
Porkpie hat from Topshop • White button-down shirt and denim cut-offs from Cotton On • Shoes from Jeffrey Campbell • I Sweat Glitters — Punk Earring from MARiS • Other accessories from Diva, Bugis Village
One of the many things I’ve learned from learned from Lauren Conrad’s Style is that if you found that perfect piece, preferably basics, don’t be afraid to buy it in numbers because sooner or later, that piece will no longer be available in the market and you have to scour through stores again.
When Hurricane Kitty/Jesrhel Co wore this earring for MARiS, I instantly fell inlove with it. I immediately told my boyfriend about it and he bought it for me as gift. Forever sweet! ♥
Mixed bracelets and bangles from Diva & Yhansy Manila. Rings from Bugis Village.
Last but not the least, shoes from Jeffrey Campbell! ♥ One day, I’ll own more JC shoes! ;)
