the Spanish Heritage

The Spanish Heritage is one of the best venues to hold special occasions such as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, conventions, debuts, or what-have-you. It is fully air-conditioned and is equipped with the best facilities in town. Located along San Juan St. near the boulevard, the Spanish Heritage boasts of a glorious past. The structure has been saved to preserve its original look and at the same time achieve the kind of elegance that modern establishments have. It is very flexible, it easily adapts to the theme or motif of the celebration. Its "homely" atmosphere makes it one of the most unique venues in the country.

huge accessories

Scouting for fashionable accessories in our small city can be a frustrating exercise. I was looking for rings with huge, huge stones or design but managed to find only one store that sold only about two types of what I was looking for and they were not even huge enough. Then I also scouted for good thick bangles but only found a few common-looking ones. Long necklaces that hang down close to the waistline with gigantic pendants were also not to be found here. Neither did I find round earrings as big as bracelets. It seems like our small town needs some updated accessory shops.

who wins as Prom Queen?

The most coveted title during annual JS Proms is that of a Prom Queen. Who gets chosen as the prom queen? Is she one with the most beautiful gown? Or one with the most expensive gown? Or is she the lady who is the most beautiful that night, one who is able to carry herself elegantly? Well, it is not easy to answer this question since different schools follow different criteria for choosing their prom queen.

But of course, prom queens should have a combination of these qualities:

1. elegance
2. charm
3. beauty
4. personability
5. attractiveness
6. sociability

Ladies, did you project all those qualities above? If you did, you should have gotten the title "Prom Queen".

on wearing black

Ages ago, black was only associated with anything gloomy or evil. In our country alone, people would know that a member of the family had passed away because it was a custom for members of the bereaved family to wear black when someone died as a sign of great mourning. This practice had been strictly observed and followed until a new trend took over, when, instead of wearing black, family members are now required to wear all white with a black pin attached to the left side of the dress or shirt. No longer would you see all members of the bereaved family in total blackness.

Today black is no longer looked upon as the color of death or evil. People wear it for a variety of reasons as black matches with any color and that black can tremendously make the wearer look thinner and thus, better-looking. Black has come to be associated with glam. Women who wear black are said to look more glamorous and classy. DI's in ballroom competitions prefer a totally black outfit. In beauty pageants many candidates who wear black usually appear the most glamorous. But, the big but is, according to fashion experts, women below 30 should NEVER wear a black gown or dress. Why? That's the rule, the say. Only women 30 above may wear a gown or ball dress in black.
