What’s up, people of the universe? 😉 I’m trying to be more diligent with my blog posts (hehe!) so as to, well, share (not bore!) with you tidbits of the Curious Cat’s blessed life. Here we go with the 5 Random Facts tag; shout out to fellow blogger Michelle of All About Being Glam! 🙂 Follow her blog, she’s really nice and her posts always inspire me!

5 Random Things about the Curious Cat

 

1. The Ever-Nervous Adventure Seeker

In my mind, I play myself out to be a Dora the Explorer type minus the purple backpack and China doll bangs. Can I say that I delude myself that I’m an adventurous person? Sometimes, haha. And it frequently ends in bouts of nervousness.

Case in point:

Bohol 2012 – Crossing the Hanging Bridge

I was so game to cross the bridge and was even encouraging a friend of mine who had a fear of heights and was understandably nervous about the whole thing to go for it. The chicken that I am, I gulped when I saw the river under the bridge and came face to face with the bridge itself. In the end, I was so slow in walking that I had to be overtaken. Haha!

Corregidor 2012 – Bumpy Boat Ride

I guess the waves weren’t so very cooperative that day and I got seasick after my first 10 minutes in the boat. :)) I was so enthusiastic about the whole thing and so optimistic that I wouldn’t get sick when J warned me about the possibly bumpy ride. So yeah, that’s why I became a regular office worker and not a maritime person. Hehe. 😀

Sagada 2012 – Caving and Spelunking

There had been a lot of warnings about the whole caving and spelunking thing to be difficult and of course I had to pay no heed to all of it. My headstrong self still wanted to prove everyone wrong. I guess it’s quite obvious how it all ended – not even halfway through the cave, our guide told us that the girls in the group cannot proceed with the tour as we were not ‘physically prepared’ for it. Too bad, I still plan to come back sometime in the future and explore the whole cave! 😀 (never say die, they say, haha)

Workwear Essentials: Avon Multiway Cowlneck Dress and Manzzini Carry-All

Quick trivia: The Curious Cat has been a member of the Philippine labor force since 2009. Yup, fresh out of graduation! Never had a long vacation after 4 years of college life and couldn’t afford to take a break anyway. 🙂

I am now at my third job and have realized the sore lack of office clothes in my wardrobe. Must be due to the informal nature of my two previous jobs. But as I get to realize more and more the value of appropriate dressing (especially in the work setting),  I should really start building my key pieces.

The usual instinct would be to buy first a good pair of work trousers or slacks but I find myself getting drawn to dresses partly because it takes me forever to find a well-fitting pair. Something to do with my hips and tummy, hehe.

You know the ubiquitous LBD (little black dress) that keeps cropping up in the ‘must have’ lists? Well, I must have about 3 of that now – in different cuts, texture, and fit. Allow me to share one of them with you together with the perfect complement to it, a simply gorgeous black carry-all.

I present to you: Avon Multiway Cowlneck Dress and Avon Manzzini Carry-All 🙂

Can this be love I’m feeling right now? ❤
