Yep, I'm a gemini. It's why sometimes or rather most of the time I can be really fickle. Heh. The outfit for the day was for my belated birthday celebration. Went with the headscarf look since I really want to go for a haircut soon. They always say it's still short. But when you're used to shorter cuts... They once told me to grow out my hair again. I'm like, no, too lazy. Lol. Shorter hair rocks more. Less fuss.
Don't know why but been into skirts lately. Hmmm. At least it's a change. See? Fickle. Lol. Like this one. Wanted a long pencil cut skirt for a while now. Glad I found one in one of the motherships, Forever 21.
Asked my friends to dress up today coz it's my day! Lol. And yay for them indulging me. I got a friend of mine who almost never wears heels in heels!
Got this neon bag from Mongkok. It's cute, right? Just smaller then what I usually buy but it's great, still!
Anyway, picked Mango Tree Bistro located in Greenbelt 5 for our lunch. Well, I was planning on posting really great photos of our food but we were running kinda late... Okay, so we were really late. (Coz of an impromptu photo-op. Lol. Still undecided whether to publish them or not.) We're sorry! And so, as soon as the dishes touched the table, it's every girl for herself. Luckily, one of us had the restraints to take quick photos. Lol.
Chicken Curry, Chicken Green Curry, Chicken Satay, Phad Thai
(If I remember all correctly)
Shrimp Cakes, Thai Iced Tea (Life ruiner. Wasn't able to sleep that night!) (Don't you just love phone apps?)
Next birthday, please! Twitter & Instagram: @sharniehung
Spikes and neon. Yeah! Lol. I got the sandals at Mongkok. Gotta love some of the designs they come up with. (But those spikes really hurt. I'm clumsy. My right foot is fine though.) That's why we always, always, always go back. Shopping makes me both happy and depressed. Lol. Coz I can't have it all. Boo.
The neon top and neon choker necklace are also from Mongkok. Yeah, it's not really one of my favorite places. No. Not at all. And the mullet skirt? Who can resist mullet skirts? Still can't. Lol.
Got the bag from H&M. Love that store. Everyone does. It tends to get crazy in there though. The lines are unbelievable but very worth the wait, eh? I'm sure the answer is a resounding "YES!". Lol. I think I go all "crazy eyes" sometimes. Wonder if H&M will ever come to the Philippines. That will surely be something to see.
Small-town Locals to Build “Courts of Inspiration” around Visayas & Mindanao
Seeing the potential to drive social value, Alaxan FR is harnessing the power of the community through the Aray Natin, Galing Natin
campaign—a collaborative effort between small-town locals to construct
these symbols of community, and turn them into something that moves
people to aim for greatness.
For its initial project, Alaxan FR chose Iloilo. Other Courts of Inspiration are
currently in the works in various parts of the country. These are in
Bacolod, Dumaguete, Tacloban, and Cebu for Visayas; and Cagayan de Oro,
Zamboanga, Butuan, Davao, and General Santos for Mindanao
Aray Natin, Galing Natinteam and locals of Barangay Tabuc Suba, Jaro, Iloilo come together for the groundbreaking ceremony.
Driven by the desire to provide their community with its first real basketball court, locals from barangay Tabuc Suba in JaroDistrict were brought together to build their own “Court of Inspiration” under the campaign.

the corporate jungle everyday leaves you stressed and crying out loud for the
weekend to come. With hundreds of things running through your mind regarding
work or even school you definitely want to find an activity that will help you

A vacation might help in driving away stress and

anxiety that city life brings then you should definitely try out Yoga.
Yoga has been continuously gaining popularity as a
mind and body exercise and an alternative and preventive medicine for some.
With series of postures and controlled breathing exercise, it's no wonder how
people are finding yoga as a very effective means of stress management and

people if only they realize the great help it can give them,” says Tesa
Celdran, a rogue certified instructor or Ashtanga Yoga in Bliss Yoga Manila.
“Yoga taps into the art of breathing, meditation and movement that will help in
stress reduction, strength building, increasing fitness, toning and shaping the
body, and even alleviating body pain and illnesses.”
Since 2007, Celdran has dedicated her life to the
practice of yoga as the positive effects of the practice manifested in her life
one by one. Reducing stress may be one of the major reasons why people try out
Yoga but better understanding of the practice led them to a whole new lifestyle
that lets them enjoy life with a better outlook and healthier body.
There are different kinds of Yoga that can cater to
your specific needs. If you want to have a more positive and better
relationship with your bodyVinyasa Flow Yoga is definitely for you.

Posture Clinics to support the growth of our students. Bliss yoga classes focus
deeply on clearing the mind, breath-work, alignment and strength; to help build

Studio Director at Bliss Yoga.
“I found that the practice of yoga helps me in
improving my flexibility and balance as well as finding stillness of the mind.
There are a lot of things going on outside and with yoga, I was able to
dedicate a time and place for me to tune my mind and try to be at the center of
it all,” shares Atticus King, a businessman who incorporates yoga with his
other physical training such as gymnastics and weights training.
With multitude of benefits yoga can offer, practicing
it will definitely be a better choice for anyone who wants to cope with daily
life hassles. “Surely, people will not just be able to be in harmony with their
body, making them more resilient to what life brings them but also feel good

is one great outcome most people should have.” ends Celdran.
