Struggling with Pigmentophobia

OCDically documenting.

I was never a fan of colour so this is a bold, albeit lame, move for me. People who know me can attest to the fact that I have Pigmentophobia (coined). My art is monochromatic, my clothes are all black, and my happy version of food is of the one-hued palate.
Going back to art, I'm scared of mixing shades to come up with something pretty and glorious and shit. I'm just positive (or negative) that I'd botch it up.
And yet yesterday, after enduring Hell Week in the hands of demanding work projects, there I was --stroking away with one year-old, only slightly used Maped Coloured Pencils.






Yeah. It's not much. Baby steps. Hey, the last time I dove happily into the world of colour was in preschool!

If you want to see the other junk I put up for the world to see and cringe to, check out RaketChickGrams.  Don't expect sunshine, rainbows, and unicorns though.

Pick it, Zip it, Keep it with Clothes Buffet Manila!

I am a Certified Adrenaline Junkie.
If I could just stuff all of my work deadlines in one big, fat Ziploc bag and tear at them in 15 minutes flat, I would. There's nothing more exciting than the thrill of a time limit. And, bagging ultimate success by using expert cunning and strategic thinking to beat that 15-minute mark. YAAASSS!
Call me a stressaholic, but work is all a huge buffet to me. Buffeting it. That's my shtick. *snaps fingers to look cool; ends up looking like a dweeb* 


So imagine my ridiculous joy when I learned about Clothes Buffet Manila. Are you kidding me?! Aside from being a workaholic, I happen to be a shopaholic, too! Adrenaline Junkie mode is so on!
Clothes Buffet Manila is the best idea in shopping since the Buy-One-Take-One phenomenon.
Check it. All you have to do is head on to Clothes Buffet Manila's Buffet floor --where a frikkin''  30,000-piece signature brand clothes spread is waiting to be ravaged-- and PICK IT, ZIP IT, and KEEP IT! 

PICK IT!
You feeling like a Smart Chic office girl? A Girls' Night Out party princess? Or a Festival Madness diva?

ZIP IT!
Here's the fun part. Clothes Buffet Manila is setting up this event on October 17 and 18 where you can just ram all the clothes you've chosen in a choice Ziploc bag and consider them all yours. No questions asked. This requires strategic folding and ramming, mind you. Because the shopping spree wave lasts for only 15 minutes. If I were you, I'd practice. Like, really Karate Kid it and train.

KEEP IT!
Aaaand that's it! Go home! You have just bagged a fine fashion collection of your own in just 15 minutes. Ugghhh… doesn't that concept alone make your heart pump like crazy?!!
The cool part is that it's so easy to be part of this unique shopping experience. All you have to do is book a slot for October 17 or 18 and you're in.

So, if you're an adrenaline junkie like me, your fingers had better be working on hooking up with Clothes Buffet Manila this instant. Aside from work (which might just be an isolated case with me. *facepalms*), nothing feeds that rush quite like good quality, heart-stopping shopping.

Meanwhile… train… speed… fold… ooommm...
