Denim and Beyonce

25 Jul

Good morning! 🙂

Sharing with you a casual outfit today: the timeless denim-on-denim look.  I wore this last week for a fun out-of-town weekend with my friends.

Recently Updated38Decided to let my afro hair down and free in an attempt to give my casual attire a bit more umph. lol 

Can I just say that every time i wear my big curly hair, random strangers suddenly act weirdly nice and friendly to me,. I dunno, maybe it’s because my hair intrigues Filipinos in general. I mean, it’s not everyday that they see a woman shamelessly walk around Metro Manila with a big afro.  So, I guess they would have to spark up small conversations with me just to satisfy their curiosity.

I’m always mistaken for an African American woman. Or mixed Asian African.It amuses me every single time. lol Some well meaning people would try to be very careful with their words. They’d usually hesitate to ask me if I am indeed of african blood because here in the Philippines, people are obsessed with being white and our history has made us develop this colonial mentality whereby we (as a people) think Caucasians have a certain degree of superiority. So they’d  assume that I would feel bad if i’m mistaken for being of an African descent. LOL not the case at all. On the contrary, I always enjoy it. Sometimes, I even pretend I’m Queen Bey. lol. 🙂


When I know they want to  confirm if i’m black, but they hesitate so as not to “offend” me, I just usually finish the sentence for them and say I’m pure Filipino but it amuses me when I’m taken for an African girl. 🙂

Anyways, I found out that this is true not only in the Philippines. Peter (who is a handsome Black British friend of mine) told me yesterday his friends who saw me on facebook would often ask him if i’m mixed. Wait, how did they describe me? Oh, he said they said my features resemble those of a  black girl from Dominican Republic. I googled “dominican republic women” and got so flattered coz they are a bunch of very beautiful women! ❤

Oh well, I don’t really have any prejudice against any race. And if you want an entertaining trivia about me, i tend to get attracted to very composed, ambitious black men 🙂 aaaaah. I can’t even explain why.  or maybe i can but i just wanna keep it to myself.  Let’s not expose too much about my private life hahaha.

Downloads1So that’s about it! I hope you enjoyed this post.  And I hope everyone’s having a wonderful Saturday! 🙂
