All for the love of ukay.

I'm allergic to dust and smoke. Off all things right? Just imagine me gasping for air whenever someone beside me lights a cig...worse, imagine me shopping my wits out in my (latest) fave ukay store.. I know, I am killing myself.All for the love of ukay!
I can't help but drop by the thrift store I discovered lately everytime I go home from Makati. I think for two nights in a row, I ransacked the clothes for treasures. I went home guiltless and happy with 25 pieces of clothing for ++pesos (They were on sale!). That was on the second night of my shopping spree!I scored a pair of Harem pants (identical to those sold in FOREVER21), a beeeeeautiful skirt (which my sister asked in exchange for the oversized top/dress I want from her..hihi) and (drum roll please!!) a DIANE VON FURSTENBERG bejewelled coverup!! I think it's been seasons ago since she sent out her bejewelled collection but the heck, it's DVF for 50pesos! The manong was kind (It pays to be nice and friendly to them too) enough to give me discounts on top of the rock bottom prices. It was a nice ending to my almost perfect week (I'm slowly picking up the pace in my hardcore review in Kaplan).
Just when I thought my week would be purrrfect,the flu caught me! (or is it the other way around?). I thought I only have allergies from fixing the bags full of dusty clothes. The next day (Saturday) it was confirmed, I'm down with a flu. My mom is blaming my ukay adventures. She scolded me because I should know better daw. I told her, it just so happened I went thriftshopping just when I was about to catch a cold. She didn't buy it. Now, I'm in RUO (Restraining Ukay Order). I can't complain actually. I'm saving up for the "ultimate shopping spree" next month in BKK! Can't wait to go to Chatuchak! hehe.
I know I was too crazy to let my guard down and ignore the fact I am allergic to dust. What can I do?It has become my only vice..
**shameless plug: please visit my online store (**
