Miss Sophisticated “soshalizes” with the who’s who of Manila, gracing the society pages as she hops from one happening event to another. Her drink of choice? A glass of Chateau Lafite Rothschild Pauillac 1996 (Chateau Laff…what? It’s really soshal wine)
Miss Sophisticated is currently an in-house lawyer/eventologist/PR person/blogger (because anyone who’s anyone multitasks). Her daily dress code is body conscious, and figure unforgiving. On any given day, you might bump into Miss Sophisticated strutting around the Makati business district in her sky high heels, body con dress, checking her email with her blackberry, while Face-Timing on her iPhone. Miss S does not leave home without her shades (perhaps because night owls suffer from photo sensitivity?).
Miss S has quite the extensive lexicon, and after several glasses of wine, she’ll quickly demonstrate just how fluent she is in English. The proficiency in English shouldn’t surprise anyone though, Miss S has had years of schooling in Assumption (…Antipolo).
Miss S has a long-time boyfriend. How long? Think Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn long. Okay, maybe not that long, but you get the picture. People always ask when Miss S and Long-Time BF will tie the knot. They always ask, because they never get a straight answer from the two. Besides, why go conjugal when you can co-own? (ahh, but Mrs. Domesticated is of the opinion that marriage is more than just a piece of paper. More on that later).
Mrs. Domesticated’s day starts at 5 AM (when her baby girl wakes up), and it ends…well, her day doesn’t seem to end now, does it? Mrs. Domesticated’s to-do list is never ending, and her energy never seems to run out, which comes from a constant supply of the following Cs: coffee, castleville and chismis!
Mrs. D has had her fairy tale love story—quite literally, since she asked her entourage to wear wings and fairy dust on her wedding. Her “soshal” calendar consists of play-dates, children’s birthday parties and brunches with her in laws (whom she loves to death, in case they’ve stumbled upon this blog by accident). Like most young and techno-savvy mommies, Mrs D. carefully documents each and every milestone and semi-milestone of her baby. 1st smile, 1st“kunot ng noo”, 1st pole dance, 1st crawl, 1stLacoste sundress all captured and shared via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Because really, it’s not a milestone if it’s not shared via social media, diba?
Mrs. D can swear like a sailor if provoked (but not in front of the children, ano ba!) . Mrs. D seems to have it all: the hyphenated name, the busy career and a little Junior Mrs. D who was just born last year. And now that she has achieved everything, she’s now grappling with the next challenge: how to juggle everything once you’ve gotten it. Read the TSN to learn how Mrs. D struggles with having it all.
Come and take peek into the life of a BaCav (as in Bacoor, Cavite) blue blood as you read the memoirs of Ms. Provinciated, one of the most sought after beauties south of the Metro. Get a backstage pass to BaCav “soshal” events like the Santacruzan and Paliga ni Kap. Savor the dirty and delicious details of the latest chismaxx at the Rotary meeting or lamay sa bahay (May kabit si kwan? At na kwan ni kwan si kwan? ODK!) If you think BaCav life is too bakya for your urbane taste, then, hay nako ‘teh, you are sadly mistaken. Ms. Provinciated’s detailed, tongue-in-cheek writings will get you hooked. As in.
While Ms. P is, by definition, a probinsyana, she’s not the I’ll-cover-my-mouth-with-my-panyolito-Maria-Clara barrio lass. She’s bold, brazen, and at times bombastic. She’ll tell it like it is, without any euphemisms or apologies, in matalinghagang Tagalog. While Ms. P is frank and outspoken, her comments are never mean-spirited. Just brutally honest (brutally being the operative word).
Read all about her quest to find the Perfect Guy amidst a sea of Horribly Imperfect Dudes. Or her daily struggles with bureaucracy as an impatient civil servant. Or her political ambitions (to be Barangay Captain and then to be President of the Philippines). Or her bloopers and blunders with her equally colorful family. Or her in-depth analyses of the happenings sa Bahay ni Kuya. Whatever the topic is, Ms. P’s candid observations will definitely be a super interesting read.
