Jeans miracle




My body type is very-pear-shaped with thunder thighs. I rarely get to buy jeans that fit well. My blouses are sized at medium or large (equivalent to 2/4/6 US size), but my pants (sigh) scream at XXL or beyond (size 10 or 12). And I'm only 5"3... in heels!

Easy enough for me to slap on any pair, but really, they just look so wrong. Either it fits my waist nicely but the thighs are bursting... or the thighs are comfy, but the pants fall. And believe me, when you use belts, it doesn't really do the trick because the pants fold vertical creases at the waist. The belt is up but the pants are still down, hanging desperately by the belt holder. Plus you get burned marks at the waist. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck.

Low rise for ladies, out. Always too teeny tiny. The entire pair.
Boot-leg. Always too tight at the knees. WTFonk??? Ick.
Straight cut for ladies. If I can find something straight for my thighs, it totally transforms into flare pants. And it's IF I find straight cut that'll fit the thighs.
Wide leg. Aah... Utopia... But then again, wide leg pants are mostly slacks here. Have to travel several continents to find wide leg jeans.
Stretchy materials are great, but you still need an alchemist to concoct the perfect combo for the stretchy waist and comfy thigh-room.

I'm not running out of things to say... I guess this means it really has been a rough ride for me.)

Why, God?... Why???

I was scouting around for a shirt for 12 year old when I saw a glint up ahead. Ting! Nice low rise jeans on a mannequin! And in the teen boys department! Ehmmm... *Marbles in head rolling* Low-rise + guys sizes equals....

Needless to say, I never did get to buy him a shirt.

I got me one jean! Hooohhhray!

I think I'll buy two more of the same pair... or four... or six...eight? ten?....

Good for you! Sometimes the men's cut of certain clothes look better on a woman! ;)
Now you know where to get the perfect jeans!

Yeah, I'll be stealthily skulking around in teen boys' sections for many years to come. :-)

Diliman Preparatory School QC Rocks

Summary: This is a School Review, based on our family's experience.

If you are looking for an excellent school in Quezon City for your elementary or high school children, Diliman Preparatory School along Commonwealth offers up-to-date competitive curriculum in Mathematics, Sciences and Reading. They also have excellent extra-curriculum activities that will help give your children a holistic education.




Last week, at my son's academic achievement awarding ceremony (he got the no.1 honor in class again, yay! Good job, son!), the CEO of the school talked to the parents about the achievements of the school for the year, and the changes for next year.

To be quick about it, this year, Diliman Preparatory School:
- started with the Singaporean Math curriculum
- used the very new Learning by Design Reading program (it's a research-based and assessment-based reading curriculum)
- I noticed they introduced Robotics this year
- There are more changes I approve of but I won't list …

Another birthday...

I can't believe my teen is now 15!

I saw my old post about Isiah's birthday in 2008 and wow... time does fly.


Well, Isiah's 15 today and things are still quite smooth sailing.

No honors in school this year, but that's alright.
He is passionate about his music more than ever. I admire that he regularly sets aside time to study and practice music on his own.
He is not as relationship-crazy or girl-crazy the past months, I wonder why.
He is totally into new-age yikies like meditation and chakras.
Seems like he is generally enjoying his school and friends.

I do bare my fangs for him mostly over his chore of washing the dishes, but that's about it. Yeah, boring.

But for this kind of boring, I am totally grateful. Yay.



Happy birthday son. Thank you for honoring my life with your presence. Love always,

You Know They've Grown Again When...

I've never done this to my kids, but some parents tell their kids "If you're bad, I will go away."

I knew my 10 year old has grown again when I told him before my night out, "If you're going to be so difficult, I will stay in and cancel." Watch me watch you the whole night.

Yeah, that pretty much got him behaved. I was able to go out. ;-)
