Do the "Claudine"

Starting now, that's how I'll say "throwing a tantrum."  I think it's funny that saying "Don't make me angry, or else I'll do a claudine on you!" or "Damnit, I got claudined."  rolls off the tongue pretty well. Hahaha.

It's the scandal of the week and everybody and their grandmothers are talking about it.  I want to put my 2 cents in too, but I'm not going to talk about the brawl itself, because we've had enough of that.

I want to talk about those damn bags -- it's what started this whole mess!

So apparently Cebu Pacific did not load a lot of the Santiago-Barretto group's bags into the Caticlan flight they boarded, because the plane is overweight (I'm guessing it's the group's fault because it's been reported they paid over Php 4,000 in excess), but that the bags were loaded into the next flight out of Kalibo.

Understandably, anyone will get upset upon learning that their bags didn't arrive at the airport with them.  However, that's the risk you take when flying on a plane -- the list of safety precautions airlines and airports have to adhere to is as long as the Great Wall of China.  You don't want your plane to just suddenly drop from the sky, now, do yah? 

But yes, it's very upsetting.  Take it from someone who arrives at NAIA only to find out my suitcases didn't make it home -- TWICE.  The first time my suitcases spent the night in Hong Kong.  Just last month, another airline left my suitcases overnight at Narita airport.  My sister told me "How come this thing always happens to you?!"

It really sucks when the family picks me up and I don't have the gifts I plan to give them, but stuff like this happen all the time.  You can't blame ground staff, blow up on them and threaten to have them fired -- it wasn't their call to make in the first place.  It was the job of airline staff from your departing airport to make sure your flight was safe and leaving on schedule.  If your bags are late, they can't load them.  If your bags make the plane overweight, they'll have to board another plane. It's pretty simple, really.

I guess being rich and famous gives you the excuse to act like a spoiled brat.  It's  just interesting that these celebrities take offense to somebody documenting their ill-behaviour, because as far as the public is concerned, their lives are fair game. 

If celebrities behave properly in public, there would be no fuss.

A lady does NOT get involved in anything like this. Seriously.
Let the men do the dirty work!

Handbags & Gladrags

Frustrated Sosyalera has decided to open a shop!  For years, I've wanted to open my own boutique, but sadly, it's taking longer than planned.  However, I've got brand-new designer purses lying around at home, looking for fabulous new owners.  So instead of Handbags and Gladrags, which is what I intend to sell in the long run, it'll be just handbags for now.  The gladrags will have to come later.

I've also set up the Frustrated Sosyalera Facebook fan page! Yay!!!

And now for the good stuff!  Click on the photos below to be taken to my online catalogue.  Happy shopping! ;)

Eyes got it!

See what I did with the title? Wordplay, oh yeah! Hohoho!

Anywayyy, the reason for that is a couple of my last purchases before I left California were these babies --

So I wandered off into Walmart's makeup aisles, big deal! :P

I love liquid eyeliner, it's one of those makeup products that I would never manage without.  I have a very small makeup case. My daily makeup routine just involves concealer, face powder, blush & lipstick.  If I want to go a level higher, I bring out the liquid eyeliner and mascara.

But liquid eyeliner is so hard to put on!!!  I could never give both my eyes the same look, no matter how much I practice (okay, maybe I continually slack on the practicing, pfttt).  So I'm always on the lookout for the easiest liquid eyeliners to use -- I'm currently using The Face Shop Greatist liquid eyeliner (it glides on, can be easily removed and doesn't smudge, but it's shiny).    

I guess I'm in an experimental mood, so I thought I'd see how I'd fare with Maybelline's Lasting Drama gel eyeliner and L'Oreal's Lineur Intense liquid eyeliner.

While I'm at it, maybe I oughta practice some of the techniques my friend has given me, like so -- 

Mannnnn, it'd be SO COOL if I learned how to do all that, but how do I find the time?!
