This week was all about discovering/rediscovering a classic TV show, thanks to YouTube and cable. “Frasier”, about a psychiatrist who has “left the building” a long time ago (2004) and his radio show in KACL, Seattle is only but a memory. But the classic show that it is, I find myself drawn to getting my Frasier fix even though I’m at least a decade behind.
Love the chemistry among the cast and the relationships that were built throughout 11 wonderful seasons. Dr. Frasier Crane, with his eccentricities and high society tastes, is human after all. I also like Frasier’s brother Niles, who is just like Frasier but is a bit luckier in love. I love that Niles “moons” over Daphne, the sometimes “psychic” physical therapist of his and Frasier’s father, Martin. Martin has that everyday wisdom and common sense that his boys often overlook. And Roz, Frasier’s producer, just blends into the family with her wit.
There are many other things that I love about the show as I discover episode after episode, but what I like most is that these episodes were wonderfully and intelligently written. And I absolutely loved that ending.
Frasier will be in my must-watch show every night on YouTube. I’m definitely on the Niles-Daphne team. (They’re adorable together.)
The bag of the day is in my favorite color and favorite landmark print.
The limited edition Herve Chapelier bag in fuschia pink with the Eiffel Tower print is LOVE! Perfect for the rainy days ahead.

Update 7/22/14: Hello, little angel!
I want to show a glimpse of my law school past.
Circa 2000, with my classmates from my block section, 1-B, who eventually became my closest friends
Working on our “group project”
With good friend Mariel, circa 2005 (top pics) and 2008 (bottom pics). Our bar journey.
And finally a shot with the UST Main Building with the Christmas lights. I still kinda dress the same, really.
I have lots of fun memories during my UST years, while we are trying to keep our grades up and commit to the dream of becoming a lawyer. Looking back, I wished I had studied more and partied more. But no regrets.
Been complaining about the heat these past few months that I did not notice that summer just flew by. (Tomorrow is July already!) The half of the year had its share of disappointments and departures plus the lack of funds made me stay in the city most of the time when most people are at the beach or some place very interesting, just by viewing their FB walls, etc. (Ah, the power of social media nowadays.) But my summer had its high points: I was out of town last Holy Week, had a staycation with a friend, joined two team outings, and I recently saw a person in my past – a former teacher who in one way or another, inspired me. My only wish now, is that I see her again in the future, para makabawi man lamang. Cheesy, I know, but that brief encounter was the bright light of an otherwise bleak year.
In any case, lesson learned: Must plan ahead for next summer, which I hope, will be a more interesting and happier one.
I got to unleash my inner Van Gogh at the Sip and Gogh Paint Studio at Capitol Greenstreet. Registered for a class with my friend/officemate who’s really into painting.
We were taught by the resident artists how to paint this particular painting–Homebound. After about two hours, we were done.
This is our masterpiece, mine’s on the left side:
And the evolution of my work:
Update 7/19/14: Autumn
Update 7/31/14: Midnight Stroll
A closer look. This might be my fave work so far.
It is now pouring out but this does not stop me from enjoying the rest of the summer. I finally got to spend a day at the beach, courtesy of the Green Team, who willingly adopted me for the night. Fun beaching in the rain!
