Here is my very relaxed weekender OOTD (Outfit of the Day). Printed on my shirt is verses from the Bible:

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

Shirt by SML Boutique. Flats by Posh Pocket Shoes Online
and cheapo denim shorts + scarf

I bought it online from IG seller @SMLBoutiquePH. Current shirt price is around Php 200-250. I actually bought 4 shirts from them -- 2 for me and 2 for hubby. Unfortunately, the size 2XL is the largest size they have so naging body fit kay hubby. Hopefully, now that he is biking again... it will eventually fit him.

As for the seller, they are quick to send info regarding getting orders but not so responsive when sending status of the orders. They use Yalex brand for the shirts they sent us but I hope they will have further options ng better quality kahit different price range. 

The thing I like is maganda yung designs, quality of the print even the color combinations because it differs depending on the color of the shirt they used. So I am guessing they have a good artist. Great gift idea to Christian friends na hindi super mahal.

I will be lying if I tell you that I do not like the rain, raining while at home that is... honestly, it is my favorite weather. I can recall that I actually wrote a poem for our English class in high school as the rain being my subject. I could hear the line from 90s grunge band Garbage in my head -- 'I'm only happy when it rains'. 

The sounds -- the dripping of each rain drop, the quietness around, it brings me comfort and solace.

Well, the flood and traffic during the heavy rains... that is totally a different matter. I pray for everyone's safety those who are directly affected by this typhoon.

Isaiah 55:10

New International Version (NIV)
10 As the rain and the snow
    come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
    without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
    so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,

I asked permission from hubby if I could shop a little while waiting for him while he attends the first meeting of his church small group. So last weekend, I went around Robinson's Department Store in Festival Mall Alabang to look for a new pair of jeans. Since it was a weekend, I am wearing my go-to jeans from Jag.

Early that day while trying to find a parking space for almost 30 minutes, we realized it was actually a weekend sale thus the difficulty in finding a free spot. So I decided that my shopping should be purposeful and strategic. Hence, I went straight to the Jag booth without batting an eyelash, choose my size and fit it ad hoc fitting cube next to their stall (I really don't want to line up in the fitting room). It has no special price tag whatsoever so I assumed I will be paying the regular price.

But surprisingly, the assisting sales lady got a 20% price tag sticker and when I asked why, she said since I was already wearing Jag, I get a discount for my new pair because of the 2013 Denim Show-Off Promo. Yay! Bad news is it was already last day of the promo period but I do hope some of you were able to avail it.
