All I want for Christmas

I noticed that I really love making lists.Wow! It's nearly a year ago since I made this blog and I've kept it barely alive haha. Sorry. I wish I have more chance and time to write on you more. But nowadays, in this time of so many social apps all over the mobile and internet world, instant blogging or photo posting is most likely the way to go.

I wanna work for UNIQLO! Help me universe!
As the year ends and I can think of is wishing for bigger goals and more stable life. All I am really hoping for is to get a job in Uniqlo in Tokyo. It has been my dream to work in Tokyo since I came there the first time. This is all I want... Under some technicalities I might not be qualified to apply so I'm really anxious, but I still tried. There's no harm in trying, right? Anyway i can only hope for the best and just pray hard. I always pray, "Grant me the serenity to accept things I cannot change, the courage to change things that I can and the wisdom to know the difference." Well, I might need to pray a little harder nowadays and ask for the greater force of the universe to support me in my dream. I passed my application on the last minute of application period. It is a whole lots of soul searching and took me alot of convincing in myself that I should do it. To be honest I am pretty scared to try out and not get accepted I think I will feel sadder. But it's done. All I can do is pray harder.

Please pray for me peeps. I'd probably need it more than ever.

This was supposed to be my Christmas wishlist, I almost forgot. I just have some minor wishes this time since I don't really think of any other thing now but my job application. But it's good to keep a list so in case I get a chance to get them, I have it all listed somewhere...

1. Cath Kidston Journal

Luckily, I have consumed three of this journal this year~ It's great! More than anything having something to write is what I am most thankful about. I've ran out my last page on my third notebook... unfortunately it's no longer sold in Manila or barely even sold in Manila now. Last time I found one piece in Fully Booked it's almost damaged and crumpled may because it's the last piece...? I hope i can find one these days.

2. Mac Book Pro
I need to replace my old fossil laptop. It's been almost four years since I had it and it's now in poor condition. I really need to replace my laptop and this time I decided to opt for Mac. 

3. Christmas with Taka

I know this is already impossible to happen. But I just wish that we could spend Christmas together. We're celebrating seven months BTW... just today! I miss him very much. Everyday I miss him.

My Own ANTM-All-Stars!

I've been an  avid fan of America's Next Top Model since the first season... I must proudly say I have my own bet in all the 17 seasons. They 17th season was made into an all-star season but I didn't quite like most of the cast... they just seem catty for me but not quite tasteful... Especially that Angelea and that ghetto Bianca... and that fake Alexandria. Eew. What a waste of airing time. I just find it so one note to bring ghetto girls and predictably cause some cat fights.
Anyways, just for the fun of it... I'd like to think of my own ANTM All-Star Cast from Season 1-16... It is such a delight to make my own roster and look back at the fierce gorgeous of models of the past seasons of ANTM Era.
Let's Start? Haha~

1. Elyse Sewell, ANTM Cycle 1
Elyse Sewell
I still believe Elyse is the most successful ANTM Model of all time! She has established herself pretty well in terms of branding. Audience nowadays don't like ditsy models so much anymore. Elyse is a beauty with BRAINS! She's a pre-med and a linguistics double major graduate before entering the show. She may seem arrogant and anti-social. But it adds up to her character and she could morph into Asian-looking, Jewish looking, and just be very androgynous. They don't find models like her nowadays. 

Androgynous chameleon. I just simply love her.

Shandi Sullivan
2. Shandi Sullivan, ANTM Cycle 2  
is the geek chick! she really morphs into character with every shoot. But for me, Yoanna House really bagged the win that season but Shandi was really good too!

3. Amanda Swafford, ANTM Cycle 3 
The Legally blonde ice queen beauty. Cycle 3 is the most colorful and my ulitmate favorite! They went to Tokyo for their trip and they were all so colorful! Amanda really rocked that season and I still wonder why she never made it to top two... It should have been her and Yaya!
Amanda Swafford

Yaya Da Costa
4.Yaya Da Costa,ANTM Cycle 3
Yaya is the African-American Beauty with such class. She's a dancer and an Ivy-Leaguer Student of Brown University back then. She may have been arrogant a little... but she aced most of her photos all-through-out the season.

Kahlen Rondot

5.Kahlen Rondot, ANTM Cycle 4
Naima Mora came close neck and neck with Kahlen and she played a good fight. She is consistent and aced her shoots. May be a bit more personality? But her body, runway walk and modelling skills is truly an ALL-STAR TOP MODEL!

Nik Pace
6.Nik Pace,ANTM Cycle 5
Nik I think is an underrated model. I think her chameleon ethnicity is one of a kind but I still wonder why that mediocre Nicole won that season. It should have been Nik or Jayla.
Joannie Dodds
7.Joannie Dodds,ANTM Cycle 6
Blondes I think are the almost-had-it-but-not most of the past seasons. Joannie is one of the "Miss Perfect" Top Model but never bagged in the end. But she is interesting somehow because she's good. She was never in the bottom two all her season but may be being "too perfect" doesn't make a top model. But nonetheless she's good.

Anchal Joseph
8.Anchal Joseph,ANTM Cycle 7
I just love variety of ethnicity in the show. Anchal is so beautiful but she lacks confidence. But her beauty is very interesting. It gives the show some variety and different face to offer.

I have no bet in Cycle 8 they all seem lack-luster for me and that's why Jaslene bagged the TOP MODEL win for that season

Heather Kuzmich
9. Heather Kuzmich, ANTM Cycle 9
Heather is unique because she's psychologically really awkward because she is autistic. She is diagnosed with Asperger's disease. But nonetheless she performed well. She never stopped looking beautiful. 

10. Fatima Siad, ANTM Cycle 10
The "Young Iman" is a true-blue TOP MODEL ALL-STAR for me! You don't find model like her beauty like the legendary "Iman". Her skin is so flawless!
Fatima Siad

11. Marjorie Conrad, ANTM Cycle 11
OMG! Next to Elyse I think Marjorie is a natural born TOP MODEL! Her quirky poise gives her this unique charm. Plus she's French! I love this androgynous pixie girl! 
Her nervous character persona makes the show more interesting even!
Marjorie Conrad
12. Alison Harvard, ANTM Cycle 12
Only Alison from the airing ANTM ALL-STAR CYCLE was the girl I am really rooting for. I think she is really unique and really quirky! Her eyes is so interesting to look at and she has a deeper sense of "high art" because she's an artiste! I hope she wins this season. She should have won her season I believe so because she's so unforgettable!
Allison Harvard
Jennifer An
13. Jeniffer An, ANTM Cycle 13
Hooray for Asians! Hooray for petite girls! Among the few number of Asian ANTM contestants, I liked her face the most because she really looks so purely Asian... She's not slutty looking and she has this grace in her that brings out the beauty more. 

Ren Vokes
14. Ren Vokes, ANTM Cycle 14
This edgy beauty is so fierce too bad she didn't want to be in the show during her cycle. Who won't be wanting to go home in that season everyone seems so catty and just full of fights. But Ren really has this natural model-bad-ass type of feel. If shhe could have wanted it more... She's really gonna go  long way.

Kayla Ferrel
15. Kayla Ferrel,ANTM Cycle 15
Not because she is a lesbian that I chose her. But because she has a very elegant face. I fell in love with her Vivienne Westwood portrayal.

16. Hannah Jones, ANTM Cycle 16
Sweet Hannah makes my list just because she's so sweet. I don't like that she cries so much though. But she takes very nice high fashion photos. She and Alison should be good friend because they both seem sweet haha!

Hannah Jones
Now that's my list! I wonder who's your on bets if you have your own all-stars! I want Elyse-All-Original to win haha But they are all worthy contenders for me. they are all beautiful!

I was waiting for Taka's text last nigh if he's about to sleep or if he is still alive haha. Oddly, he said, good night and he's safe home and... write a blog about your birthday wishlist so randomly haha! So RANDOM! I thought he was druck or something but he said he isn't haha he said he just wants to know! It's a funny anecdote too haha I think I am infecting my boyfriend of my randomness haha!

1) I want a Polaroid camera! But the authentic Polaroid is hard to find nowasays and the film is also hard to find... Good thing Fuji made a modern version of Polaroid Camera it's called: Fujifilm INSTAX! The MINI version looks so cute there's pink camera but the WIDE has better photos! Of course if anyone intends to give me this please give me a film too haha! I like the wide one though. I wonder how much is this haha if I get more work I will get this for myself haha!

4) 2012 Planner

Mommy Calendar for Atreyu's School Needs!

I am such a scatter brain because of my juggling act of being a mom, freelancing, meeting with clients. I really need a decent planner. Please give me PLANNERS! LOL! Haha I need one of each function.

I would need something for my Mommy Duties above all! I want this Calendar because Atreyu can see and write his schedules too while I post it on a wall at home.

But I think I would still need something I could bring anywhere. I saw this cute Kimmidoll Diary Calendar in a bookstore... And it looks okay... Well, as long as it has a big space for writing I think I would like... Ohhh I remember there's this Cath Kidston Planner I saw and it's very functional and colorful!! Well just scroll down to see what I'm talking about! I really need this! Haha!
