but first, a haircut.

i could’ve had it done here in melbourne but i waited. patiently. my hair was getting too long it was annoying me.

“3 more months… 1 month… 2 weeks… 1 week…” i was counting down the days.

by the time we got to cebu, i was just about ready to chop it all off. no, not really. but you know, by then i was sick of it. and it didn’t help that my go-to hairdresser at david’s salon in gaisano tabunok was no longer there. as a matter of fact, the entire salon wasn’t there anymore.

so at my sister’s recommendation, i went to bridges salon instead, reputed to be one of the best in cebu. posh as. a bit on the expensive side but the service was great so i can’t complain. for 2,000 pesos (about $51), the stylist did his magic and transformed me to look more human and less of a hag. with freshly intensive-conditioned scalp, to boot. not that i planned to get such hair treatment but he said i needed it. sitting on his chair, who was i to go against professional advice so i went with it.

to be honest, i don’t know if it has made a significant effect on the overall state of my mane but, whatever. i’m just really glad i had my hair finally cut. talk about feeling lighter!

aeva had her hair cut too. here we were goofing around waiting for her to finish.


and to cap the day off, pre-bedtime saw us taking selfies of ourselves with our new hair and ‘beautiful’ shirt. the one she insisted i wore so i could go twinning with her. i can’t say no to this kid. i love her so much! ❤
