Soundtripping: Sistar19

Ma Boy (마보이) by Sistar19 by ctingg
I stopped obsessing over this song over a month ago, then I wanted to hear it again today, and it has been on loop ever since.
Not only are they hot and cute they’re hot.Did I say that already? Well, let me say it again. They’re hot.


Hyorin (Left) & Bora (Right)

Sistar19 is actually a sub-group of Sistar. Yeah. I know. Sub-group? Really? Well, these two stand-out too much I guess, in a good way. I don’t really know much about the “main” group, but what I do know is I like Sistar19 way better. Hyorin & Bora! *fangirling*

Comfort Food For Rainy Days

4 comments
Gray skies. Cold winds. The pitter-patter of the rain on the windows and the smell of the wet street. Makes you want to get a blanket and chill by the windowsill, take out your MP3 player or book while chowing down on some *insert comfort food here*.
Cold and wet days and nights are ahead, and what better way to fulfill the soul and warm the tummy than some rainy-day comfort food. Here are my top comfort go-to food to combat or accent this dreary weather.


Tomato Soup with cottage cheese
(At least I think that’s cottage cheese, oh well, it’ll probably taste good anyway)

Good old fashioned Lugaw/Arroz Caldo (Gruel/Porridge) with
Tokwa at Baboy (Tofu and Pork)

My personal preference, Hot English tea with cookies.
Because I feel more like the Queen of England that way.

Churros with hot chocolate dip

Chili with some cornbread

And to top off my list



Vanilla Ice Cream with some milk wafers…mmm brain freeze

Do you like shopping? Designing? Making magazine layouts? Scrapbooking? Putting outfits together?

Some contests are even sponsored by famous brands like Lancôme or Alexander McQueen, so keep a sharp look out for those.

I, myself waste…ahem…dedicate my time there to make certain outfits to help me plan or sometimes just plan outfits, just because.

Here are some of my creations:

Twilight Saved My Life

0 comments

Don’t get all gangsta on my *ss. I like twilight and all but not to that extent. C’mon Kristen? Seriously? Can’t she act less monotonously? Me thinks she can’t, let us wait till the new installment comes out, but let’s not wait for the inevitable.

How did Twilight save my life, you may ask? Two words. Iron and Wine. I guess, three counting the article. Do you recall the prom scene, when Kristen wore that dress ,that was 4 inches below the knee with leggings?

L-E-G-G-I-N-G-S

No? Me neither, but what I do remember was the song that played. It was, for me, by far the sweetest song I would personally love to slow-dance to, any takers?


The lyrics may not make a lot of sense, but hey the melody is beautiful right? After hearing this, I became interested in who Iron and Wine was, thus I compulsively got all their albums; singles, EP’s and studio releases.

If you’re into quiet and/or folksy un-mainstream artists/bands , that are actually kind of perfect for this kind of rainy weather we’re (in the Philippines)  having lately, I strongly recommend Iron and Wine.
