Race for Love Event - The Mind Museum

Race for Love, Race to Global

After visiting Maning's workshop, I headed straight to Global City in Taguig.

I don't go to Global City very often. So, we decided to take a quick tour of the place while waiting for the Race for Love event starts.

The gloomy sky.
Heavy rain is about to pour.

I tried to clean Jeny's poop.
Jeny and her imaginary dog on leash.

Circle of Life
This place never fails to amaze me. Ever since, I always find Global City astounding. Streets and buildings without the feeling of congestion. Traffic is never their problem. At last! I found a place wherein I can catch fresh air and walk freely in the city without getting worried of being hit. Haha! 
My StyleLab blouse was too big for me.
 So, I redesigned it with my ribbon hair clip.
     The skies got gloomy and heavy rain was about to pour down so we headed back to the Canopy Plaza of The Mind Museum. We roam around the place to look for anything interesting.  
Outside The Mind Museum.

        We didn't have a chance to visit inside the museum but instead, we went to The Mind Museum Store. And we found telescopes! I've always wanted to have my own telescope but let's keep it to my Impossible Wish List.
          We also found this vintage car outside the store. I remember my mom would say that my dad gave her a vintage pencil sharpener when they were still boyfriend-girlfriend that looks like this. My mom and I would tease my dad for being a sweet. Hihi. 
         After roaming around, we registered and look for my name on the guest list. I saw Dr. Margie Holmes finalizing her notes. She was wearing an orange sleeveless top and a yellow neon jeans. (nice ring too!)

     By the way, I find these chairs awesomely COOL! Jeny and I were joking that maybe we could put these 
chairs inside her United Colors of Benetton mini shoulder bag and bring it home. (Just kidding Mind Museum!) 
       The event started at exactly 4 P.M. Earlier the event, questionnaires were passed on. Dr. Margie Holmes discussed the answers of the questionnaires on the different scales of love as an introduction. Risa Hontiveros-Baraquel, a party-list representative, was also present in the audience during the said event. Dr. Holmes even discussed her scale of love. 

     "Love is as necessary as water we drink and the air we breathe.", said Dr. Holmes. 

      She discussed the importance of human touch. A warm gentle touch of a mother can make her child feel secured. She also tackled the different types of mothering. Secured, avoidant and ambivalent. Most parents reacted to it so much. 

      The question and answer portion entertained Dr. Margie a lot. People know her as the "sex guru",  she pointed out that she is trying to shift her gear away from sexuality. But she couldn't resist the pull of gravity towards sexuality, so she answered all of their queries in a wholesome tone. (because children might hear her. haha) 

with Dr. Margie Holmes
     Towards the end of the event, I managed to take a picture with her. She was very welcoming and happy. Two hours wasn't really enough to finish the talk. I would say that she's really smart and enjoying what she's been doing. Her cheerfulness is infectious and I hope to see her again.

Tip #2 - Attend Free Craft Lessons

“We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master” 
- Ernest Hemingway
Craft is a gift and a skill that can be acquired through constant practice. 

And how do we learn a new craft? The answer is :

Tip #2 

Attend Free Craft Lessons!

        Yes, there are still FREE things in this world that you can still enjoy. Learning a new craft is one of the best ways to squeeze out your creative juices without damaging your tight budget. 

 Maning's started out as a textile shop in 1976.
By the year 2000, they switched their specialty to crafts and electric pleating.
Maning's was named after the father-in-law of the owner, Ms. Lulu So. 

     Last Saturday (March 24, 2012), Maning's invited Coats Manila Bay to host a free craft workshop on crochet and knitting. It was a 3-day free workshop held at New Farmers Plaza, Cubao from March 22-25, 2012. 

    To join the workshop, students have to buy yarn and needle (costs Php100.00 or less) from Coats Manila Bay that are available inside the store. Students were required to bring their own scissors.  
Ms. Jackie is teaching her new student, Rose Marie, 30, on how to knit a scarf.

Tip #1 - Watch Plays of your Alma Mater

Living in this world can be a total wallet wrecker

From the moment you live, 'til the last day you breathe, your purse is wrecked. 

But there are ways on how to look fabulous and live wonderfully without getting your wallet split into half and this is why I started Thrifted Away.

Tip #1
Watch Plays of your Alma Mater.

     School life can be really harsh yet wonderful. We spend most of our childhood-teenage years at school. Looking back and reminiscing school life is a great thing to do. Sporting numerous unimaginable outfits and laughing at your oopsie doopsie moments. 

Addams Family
     Last Saturday, I was able to visit my Alma Mater. (Trivia : I've been with Adamson University for more than a decade). Some of my friends invited me to watch their play. Take note: This is for FREE. They had two slots, Friday and Saturday. Luckily, I was available on a Saturday. I've seen their presentations - Burlesque, Moulin Rouge, Nine, Grease, Cats and Addams Family. It was so nice to reminisce the stress, pressure and the fun of being a part of the theater. 

     Of course, one of the best ways to reminisce college life is by eating your favorite meal inside the school canteen! 

Paj Grill
   Back in college, they used to give enormous amount of servings for only P51.00. But a year has already passed and now it costs P 55.00. It also comes with a medium sized orange juice.

   I also got the chance to see some of my friends back in High School and watch the play together. 

The After Show
Left to Right: Myself, Jeny and my best friend Minalin.
During the intermission break with Jeny.
     Going back to my Alma Mater can be pretty critical. Old professors, classmates and school officials might see me and ask how I've been doing. So, getting the right outfit is really tough. Then I remembered that I bought something last month from 168 in Divisoria. So, I ended up with this outfit : 

     Living in a frugal way doesn't mean cutting off the ties with your friends and looking unglamorous. 

    We just need to find ways on how to enjoy life without getting a hole on our purses. So, join me as I blog different ways on how to look fashionable without spending to much
