★ ♩ ♪ Nightmares Before Xmas... And a Nihon New Year! ♩ ♪ ★

December 28, 2012 IG Post: "WOOT!! After two days of anxiety!! Atreyu and I are finally gonna experience our first Japanese New Year!! Thank you universe!!! #japan #travel #visa"

To be honest this year's December may have been one of the most un-festive December I've experienced ... May be mainly because it's the first Christmas my brother and sister, Kevin & Stacy are away and have just settled in NYC. We used to compare each other's looted gifts and a few new clothes... but this year I didn't recall seeing any of my siblings do this Xmas habits we've come accustomed to... Like Christmas what?

Kuris Kuringuru (Secret Santa) LDR Style

December 19, 2011 Instagram Post ~ This obviously is my favorite photo with@takaomi54 ~ it was our last photo together last October in Tokyo! I miss you everyday...
It was pretty tough last year (or perhaps everyday) not to be able to spend time and physically see a loved one during the Christmas Season. I remember feeling so lonely (even if Kareshi and I talk every morning and every night) just seeing mundane things like couples riding the bus together, seeing people Christmas shopping or simply seeing couples casually eating at  McDo. May be I sound like a pathetic clingy Kanojo... hehe... Yeah I am. But I felt validated when Kareshi told me he felt the same way... (this is actually one of the sweetest moment I felt in my life. LOL)

Tracy's Dear Diary: December Madness!

Camwhoring photo during UP College of Business Adminitration's Binibining B.A.
Hello world. How is everyone? I'm forcing myself to accomplish this short blog entry since I've drowned myself with much pending blog posts and SOOO many things to do this Holiday Season. Compared to last year, I was more melancholic last year spending Christmas away from kareshi... It was a sad lonely Christmas last year... but may be since I've toughen myself already with LDR Challenges... I've gotten over feeling lonely this Christmas Season... Kareshi is always just an iMessage away anyways... Well, we have to make-shift what we can.

SUGARUSH! Macarons, Truffles, Crème Brulée Heaven at Bizu One Rockwell Opening

November 29, 2012 ~ Sugarushed fun night at the Bizu One Rockwell Tower Opening!

It's modest to say that I, together with my imoutosans, went to heaven... sweet-tooth-heaven that is... and wished we could have stayed there forever! Haha! I couldn't thank my fabulous friend and MEGA YDC 2012 Winner-slash-LegLove by Citylady's "I ♡ Hue" Collection Designer -slash- Fila Philippines Creative Director... Renan Pacson for inviting us to be his muse for the night. (LOL! That sounded fancier than it is haha!) Since we (my sisters and I) are fun-tights-lovers and we are Renan's #1 fan girls haha! Renan and I were friends back then in college days and it's so heartwarming to still keep in touch and still support each other in the things we do now... Especially with such fun event like the Bizu Patisserie & Bistro One Rockwell Branch Opening!

Behind the "Rad Hatter"

"I still get high whenever I see Tiara by Tracy Dizon features in the local magazines and newspapers..." is still my album caption on Tiara by Tracy Dizon's Published Prints in my Facebook Page, Tiara by Tracy Dizon. I may have a wide social network, but I don't really get as much exposure relatively to other designers... I'm not as uber-competitive to hard-sell my creations. I always believed that good quality works speaks for itself... that's why I always feel so proud and honored to be featured in newspaper articles by great journalists who learned about me through word of mouth and the likes.

Hiroko Takahashi: Lecture on Japanese Design

Our much awaited Hiroko Takahashi Design Lecture! We learned so much from Hiroko-san! Sugoi!
It was three months ago when my fashion designer friend, Dimple Lim invited me to attend the Hiroko Takahashi's Design Lecture sponsored by The Japan Foundation, Manila with her. Of course I agreed, I enjoy those kinds of learning activities. Yeah I'm a geek like that. LOL.

Why I love Japan Foundation Manila...

I'm no hardcore Japan-Culture expert, I just enjoy and talk about the things I personally know and experienced in my trips and design experiences in Japan. Well, I've loved Japanese Street Fashion ever since I've heard of Fruits Magazine and the very individualized street style fashion. I have been always amazed with the Japanese Fashion Designers with their avant-garde works... And mochiron, I have always been a kawaii girl. I'll always be thankful to the Japan Fashion Design Contest of the Sugino Fashion College and Doreme Fashion College for opening a world I never thought I will ever experience in my lifetime.
