They're so pretty, I'm gonna faint!!

I never owned a decent watch. It's just not my priority, and definitely not my eye candy.  Back in college when a wrist watch was part of our uniform, I used to only wear a fancy watch and change it every semester or when it's all worn out. Besides, I develop rashes with hours of wearing something on my wrist. I guess my skin couldn't breathe? hihi..Same goes with bags. I only use one bag, a huge one where I can put almost anything then change it every year. I throw them away because it makes my eyes sore when I see them piled up, unused. Weird? Well, that's me. But recently, I felt the need of owning a watch so I decided to buy myself a present this Christmas. And look what I've got on my mail yesterday. A stainless steel Caravelle by Bulova from Bryan!! 

It's a dress watch, although I still can't wear it because it's too loose. Anyone who knows where I can have it repaired? It's beautiful! The photo does not give it justice. My husband definitely has a taste (that's why he chose me..hahaha).

my santa! he's so cute eh?
And then this evening was our Faculty Christmas Party. Grand prize is a limited edition quadricentennial watch from Swatch. I saw a small, golden yellow box together with the other prizes and had an instinct that it's the sought after watch. My friend and I had a peek and true enough, it was! I want it! So yes, all throughout the night, I was praying that my name be picked. I really can't describe it, but I felt a pang on my chest as our dean gave the small paper to our MC. Then I felt my face turned red and my heart raced as our MC, Sir Hibek glanced on our table. Finally, he announced my name!!! ETHELYN MAGLANQUE!!! Ohmigosh, I was so happy!!!! My name seemed like music to my ears..hahaha..Happy is an understatement. I am blessed. It was surreal! And I saved a lot from these gifts! 
my nose seemed big from SMILING up to my ears!!
