Cool. Glamour. Trendy.

This blog post is for all those fashionistas and shopaholics out there. You don't need to spend too much just to be fashionable! Just check out Aling Mary & Manong Buggy's Online Shop!

Aling Mary and Manong Buggy, one of the most trendiest couple I know, personally picked out all their items. They take pride in the fact that they only sell pieces that they would wear themselves. Cool, right?

Just to give you an idea, here are some of the clothes in their June Collection:

They do meet-ups in  Powerplant Mall, Rockwell or Robinson's Place, Ermita
They could also ship the items. Take note, they shoulder the shipping if you buy three items or more! How awesome is that?!

Just check their Facebook page HERE for more details.

Go! Spend! A girl can't have too many clothes. Haha!

My First Spanish Interview

I was out (of touch) for almost 2 months coz of some mix-up in PLDT. They disconnected our DSL, but now we're connected to them again. Finally! Anyway, this post isn't about our DSL or PLDT. So enough about that.

Last Wednesday was one for the books (or blog, for this matter).

I don't now if you all know I've been studying Spanish for quite some time now. I studied until Level 6 in Instituto Cervantes, and then continued studying at home.

Anyway, last Wednesday, I applied for a Bilingual (Spanish/English) post in a call center here in Alabang. My first time ever. I kinda knew I wasn't really ready yet, in fact, I felt I'm far from ready. My dad insisted that I try, so I did.

First was the initial interview. No problem because it was in English.

Then there was an exam. Logic, math, computer, personality etc. (not really worried about this)

Then the dreaded Berlitz call. I had to speak with a person from Berlitz on the phone, in Spanish. She asked questions about me, like where I want to spend my vacation etc.
-I wasn't sure if I did ok here. I tried to converse, I THINK I did a passable conversation with her.

Then there was a one on one interview with one of the managers in SPANISH.
Here is where my mind went blank. I could understand him perfectly, but I couldn't respond. I tried, but even the simplest verbs I forgot. My mind processed the tenses soo slow. I was so embarrassed I was in there. I just wanted to disappear!

So it was over and they said they'd call if I get in to the final interview.
It's been 4 days. I don't know. I guess I didn't make it.
Do you guys think prayers can still help me?
Like, would they let me in even if I messed up in the one on one interview?
I really am praying for a miracle.
