Rainbow Brite and Friends

I am an 80s kid. I used to watch cartoons when I was just a little girl (and up to now, but so what?) and I remember liking Garfield and Friends, My Little Pony and Friends, Smurfs, Carebears, Gummy Bears, G.I. Joe, She-Ra, He-Man, and Thunder Cats. But my favorite was Rainbow Brite and Friends.
I can't believe I almost forgot about the other characters in this show. I badly needed to refresh my memory, and that's what I did., Thanks to

It was story of a girl named Wisp, who found out about a place called Rainbowland. She wanted to save it from the darkened state it was in. She was instructed to find the Color Belt and the Sphere of Light.

The first met a white sprite named Twink. Next, they found the magnificent horse Starlite.

They endured many struggles but finally found the Color Belt and the Sphere of Light. With the help of the rainbow, she was able to The Dark One and restore color and happiness to the land.

She was given the name Rainbow Brite and put in charge of keeping color alive in Rainbowland, and on Earth.

Her helpers are the Color Kids (one for each color of the rainbow: Red Butler, Lala Orange, Canary Yellow, Patty O' Green, Buddy Blue, Indigo, and Shy Violet)

and the small furry Sprites (Romeo, OJ, Spark, Lucky, Champ, Hammy, IQ) who mine Color Crystals in the Color Caves.

But not all inhabitants of Rainbowland support Rainbow's efforts. Murky Dismal and his sidekick Lurky are always up to some mischief - trying to take the Color out of the world.

A trip down memory lane... So you also like this colorful cartoon character? =)

10 Dresses

This is my version of the movie, 27 Dresses. Mine's called 10 Dresses. Hahaha.

I've been part of a wedding entourage of a quite number of times now. Mostly from my female cousins and high school barkada. At first, I wasn't really that envious since I thought I was so young and there's no need to marry soon. But eversince my high school barkada started getting married year after year after year.... waaaahhhh!!! Takot at inggit nako! I'm 28 now and most of my batchmates are now wives, mothers, or both.

Anyway, these are some of the dresses I was able to keep. (Please excuse the quality since these pictures were taken from my cellphone camera.) FYI: the gowns looked better during those wedding

And here are the list of weddings I've took part of (flower girl not included)...

Maid of Honor:
my cousin, ate Haidi
another cousin, Geraldine
my bestfriend, Tonee

Bride's maid:
my close friend, Candy

Secondary Sponsor:
my cousin, ate Leny
my cousin, Babylyn
my cousin, Marissa
my cousin, Roda
my close friend, Deberrie
my close friend, Pia

Next year, I'll be turning 29. Malapit na mawala sa kalendaryo like what people say. I wonder, how many weddings will I take part as an entourage again? I don't really know. And I'm not scared na din. Actually, I wouldn't miss wearing bridemaid dresses... because anyway, I'll be wearing my own wedding dress next year.
