This is my first Beautiful Sunday post for my favorite month of the year. I want to make this month really merry so I'm compiling all the beautiful things that made my week.

Terra and Agua Flats
 Someone gave in to her shopaholic attack. Tsk tsk 

The truth is I was just window shopping when I encountered this pair of dainty flats. I never had plans of purchasing another plastic shoes but the person handling Terra and Agua's Facebook account was so accommodating. I felt obliged to compensate their excellent customer service so there! I took home this pair and I never waited for Christmas or even my birthday to wear it.

As much as I love this pair, I unfortunately have minor issues with my first Terra and Agua. One is my feet felt uncomfortably compressed after hours of walking. I felt a tolerable level of pain on my ankles and small toes. Hopefully, the pain will go away after using the shoes more often. My other concern with this pair is the color that doesn't seem to complement my feet. I have the feeling that the light color made my feet appear darker. But of course, that's not the fault of the shoes. :-)


A waterproof shoes deserves a waterproof bag! Here's my first bag from Rootote, purchased from their ongoing sale here. If you like Cath Kidston and those cute PVC bags, head over to their site and take advantage of the huge discounts.


My Business Plan advisees joined the annual trade fair of the school. As a way of showing my support, I made everyday as a potato day. LOL My snacks for the entire week was potato chips or potato croquettes.

Everyone was hoping and praying to win that grand cash prize of the annual Bingo. The school's gym was jam packed with happy and excited students and employees. We didn't win but we surely had fun. 


The classic annual Field Demonstration of the Elementary and High School kids that we always look forward. Everyone was leaving their workstation to watch the performances of these kids. 

The winning team!


It was payday Friday so I treated myself to my favorite Taco Bell meal. I've been saying that while other girls consider chocolates as their comfort food, the carbo and calories loading Taco Bell meals will do for me.


I realized that I often patronize European and American authors. I forget to support my fellow Asians who are great writers too. So for my current read, I purchased Banana Yoshimoto's book. I will soon be writing a review for this.


Another foodie treat! My family's favorite egg pie from Goldilocks


Crafty afternoon! I thought I'm almost done with my Christmas list. I was about to perform the next step when I realized that I never bought gift wrappers. The pretentious-prudent-person in me doesn't want to spend again for those bundled colored wrappers. I again pretended that I have the genes of Martha Stewart so I forced myself to be creative. Old paper bags and unused ribbons from my defunct notepads business, voila!

No pictures for the tenth! Those who read my other blog or are close to me are aware of what happened in my freelance jobs this year. I can't remember if I mentioned it in my previous posts. It was a long story to relate. Let us just say that I'm not lucky with my freelance works this year. What's worst is that a relative was involved in my little misfortune. Sigh... Before the year is about to end, I was happy because two interested clients approached me. Of course, I'm giving my new clients a fair chance. It's just that the used to be interesting and exciting freelance work is now coupled with a certain level of fear. Hopefully, these two new clients will break that vicious cycle before 2012 ends.

Another reason to love this week are the warm and encouraging words my blog friends left in my previous posts. To all of you who have been sending me inspiring words, thank you! Thank you!

I hope everyone is having a Beautiful Sunday!
