the name: Layla. Lays. Ellie (to my college friend Jen), L to some online friends, Laylie (to the Henritas/intensevibe girls).

I didn't blow any birthday candles, but I should have blown twenty-six seven.

domicile of origin; domicile of choice: Las Islas Filipinas! I love Philippines!

what I do: I'm studying the intricacies of Law. Having a sort-of love-hate relationship with it, but I'm enjoying the journey though!

what I am like, really. Hard jawbreaker if you don't know me that well. A soft, chewy caramel if you bother to get to know me well. I am a girl you can take to the poshest shops in Greenbelt, and I'm also the kind of girl you can eat fishballs and quail eggs and sugarcoated peanuts with somewhere in Dapitan.

random things that make me happy: Rain on the rooftops. Doodling. Coloured pens (one of my good friends say I have a huge pen fetish). Maltesers (the bigger bag!).White chocolate (current obsession). Flavoured yogurt (strawberry or the berry mix one by Nestle). the colour red (the ruby red). Granny Smith apples. Long scarves. Dark chocolate. Stargazer lilies. Art materials. Pen and paper journals (this year I'll start again). A guy whose identity I hide using the codename Attractive Nuisance.

drowning in sensory pleasure: The Beatles. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Muse. Norah Jones. Manic Street Preachers. Coldplay. Lily Allen. Franz Ferdinand. The Libertines. Dirty Pretty Things. The Futureheads. Kaiser Chiefs. Kate Walsh. Mutya Buena. Mandy Moore. Wolfmother. Feist. Suzanne Vega. Radiohead. Portishead. Matthew Sweet. The Rolling Stones. Lucy Woodward. Duncan Sheik. Snow Patrol. Starsailor. Lenka. Kate Nash. Lily Allen. Sophie Ellis Bextor. Holly Valance. Jack Johnson. Keane. Michael Buble. George Michael (so sue me, I don't really care). T-Rex and Marc Bolan. The Clash.

Selectively adding.

Was strangely ill for a while, but am feeling loads better now. 

Had a sort of cold when I attended Local Government. Wheezy and sneezy. It took me several sips of water to relieve me. And we had a quiz. A QUIZ! God damn it. Let me tell you guys something. When I am ill, my brain refuses to cooperate. And I guess, I felt worse. LOL! I mean, everything I studied melted away because of a cold and a forerunner of an asthma attack! 

Maybe I'm being melodramatic again, and that it happens to everyone. 

So after the Local Government class, I headed home. But I decided to check into another National Bookstore branch to see if they have the book I need (Civil Code of the Philippines, Book 2 by Justice Edgardo Paras). Unfortunately, there was no stock of that book, and hence, a sort-of wasted book. But not totally wasted. Because I bought two second hand books at P20.00 (maybe this would be about 50 cents or so, and about 30 pence in UK---not totally sure). Anyway, I can't wait to read them! 

A good surprise: On my way to school, who should I see but my bestie Elle! She's been real busy lately--what with midterm exams and being the Editor-in-chief of the Far Eastern Law Review.  She's also a person I consider as my de facto sister, along with Aya and Krystel. So we had a brief chat. I had to let her go quickly because she has to study. Lucky girl. She's having review subjects already.

I miss my FEU Law homies.

 Remember this? A few entries ago?

Well, one of the magazines I got was this one.

I don't always get to have a copy of Vogue. And one from the UK at that! I am not  a big fan of fashion magazines, but I look at them because of the layout. Fine, I lie. I do like to look at pretty things too! But it is true--I AM A SUCKER for a good magazine layout. Vogue is no exception. 

Let me apologise if you are a part of a magazine staff and you are living in the Philippines. I like the concept of some of the magazine layouts, but sometimes, they need to learn that less is more.  So far, where local magazines are concerned, only Meg (haha, am biased because my high school friend Nissie works there as the art director--but she will be transferred to another magazine from the same publication company) and Preview of Summit Publishing have met my satisfaction rating (as if I know a lot about magazine publishing, haha).

And I am also in agreement with her with this magazine--Real Simple. We had a copy once at home. The layout was clean. No fussy elements. I don't know where the magazine is now--so I'm putting it on a wishlist (for my birthday)! I want a copy of Real Simple magazine--the latest, or even a back copy will do!
