33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2010? I think, 2010 made me realize that people should accept change, especially me. Not to become trendy but to find and have her own classic style. To sometimes care what might other people is thinking towards you right before they even get to know you. That you might not want to please other people but they will, and believe me they will, judge you by how you look and how you carry yourself. That being JUST comfortable with the clothes you wear is not always as good as you think. Because once you only care and think about is what-I-only-think-is-important you are disregarding other people that is part of your world which leads you to become a lousy dresser, you'll get lazy to keep a good hygiene, and close-minded individual who has his/her own world.
Looking good is taking care of yourself. Looking good is feeling good. Looking good in the eyes of others make you feel good. Looking good in front of the mirror feels great!
Did I answer your question?

37. Who did you miss? Watching FIFA World Cup in South Africa on Tv.
38. Who was the best new person you met? Si Manong! His personality was molded by all the experiences he went through in his life. His unique character was achieved by meeting the good, the bad and the ugly people he met along his fun journey. And he was always willing and volunteering to share all his incredibly unbelievable stories to people.

*Correction: I met this officemate last December of 2009, but I got to get to know him in 2010.
39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2010: That men can't hear (unable to process inside their brain) the 70+ percent of what women tell them. That when a guy likes you; he won't offer you a job and/or he won't ask for a pasaload. That a workplace has politics. That some people love competition although they are alone in their own race. That survival is part of living. That life is a constant change.
40. Quote or Song Lyric that sums up your year:
"If it wasn't for you
I would never be who I am."
