Reinvention is Key. LONG OR SHORT? Should I Cut My Hair or Should I Not?

Posted in Uncategorized by Farah Ramos on January 31, 2012

To cut or not to cut my hair?

It’s been so long since I had short hair. And now I’m wondering… should I really cut it short again? And this time have it curled or just wavy? Some of my friends say it suits me, therefore, I should go for it. On the other hand, some say I look old with this hair.

Or maybe just curl it once in a while? Hmmmmmm…

Posted in Modeling World by Farah Ramos on January 23, 2012

To add up to my collection of precious moments, I would like to share with you guys this video I found on YouTube featuring Tippi Ocampo’s Collection for Filipina, Bravo 2010.

Being part of Fashion Watch is one thing that I am really proud of, not to mention being trained by the Prince of Philippine Fashion himself, Inno Sotto.

I’m the third model wearing a black dress. 🙂

Go OZ GO!

Posted in Modeling World by Farah Ramos on January 15, 2012

Mega Young Designers Competition 2012 3rd Challenge: GLOBAL WARMING. The challenge was to come up with an outfit that can be worn during sunny and rainy seasons. For the second time around, I was the model of Oz Go.

Here are some Instagram snaps taken during the shoot.

It’s a 3-piece design. It has a (1) raincoat – for rainy days, (2) the collared sleeveless top, and (3) the skirt. Meryll Yan said she was confused with the three different concepts but Sari Yap defended Oz’s creation. I agree that he showed brilliance in making these three different looks work together.

As a result, the top 3 designers were: Oz, Renan Jay Pacson, and Erica Panlilio.

The melted eyewear and Lady Gaga – inspired booties even added spice to this look. It took him 4 days to sew all the gems into the stockings which is wrapped around the booties. Every detail counts, indeed!

A lil TRIVIA: The talented young designer Oz Go is singer Rachelle Ann Go’s brother. Interesting sibs! They’re both making a name of their own in their chosen industries – Fashion and Entertainment respectively.

And oh! My friend Charlene Velas took a screen shot while watching the show on TV. Thanks, Chau! You’re so cute!

Annual Outreach Program

Posted in Uncategorized by Farah Ramos on January 7, 2012

December 23, 2011 at the NCE Hall in Commonwealth

It is part of our group’s goal to EXTEND A HELPING HAND to our less-privileged brothers and sisters. This tradition started last year. This year, we thought of organizing a Christmas party to 30 families from Payatas. Although more than half of the group weren’t able to join us physically, everyone contributed.

Me, Angelia Ong, Thina Abando, Maze Sandoval, Mark Duma, Royce Salen, and Lalaine Odal:

The food:

Prizes from different sponsors – Vans, Toby’s, the rest came from the cash we collected from KSP and our generous friends:

Noche Buena package which consists of rice, canned goods, noodles, etc.:

THE PROGRAMME:

At first, the kids and moms were still shy so we had to encourage them to join.

Game 1: Longest Line

Jhenn Olivar and David Ewing joined us as we give them their prizes and food:

Prizes: Bags from Toby’s

Game 2: Stop Dance with a Funny Face

These two were the cutest! They had the funniest faces!

Game 3: Bring Me

Game 4: Pass the Message

Of course we also had a game for the moms!

Game 5: Face Dance

Starting off with the demo:

Lola joined the fun!

Nanay tried the face dance! So sooooo cute!

We gave them prizes from Vans and Toby’s:

LUNCH TIME!!!

After lunch, we had a raffle:

Game 6: Christmas Art

Volunteers were divided into four groups. They had to come up with a Christmas Artwork that shows their answer for this question: “What does Christmas mean to you?”

We were touched with their answers.

Christmas is a time to share your blessings. It is the time when Jesus Christ was born. We celebrate it to remind ourselves to be selfless.

Before we end the program, the kids rendered some Christmas songs for us as their way of saying Thank You. Such a sweet gesture.

Seeing the smile on the faces of these families is priceless.

We’d like to thank those who made this Outreach Program possible:

New Year’s Eve at the Familia de Ramos Residence

Posted in Uncategorized by Farah Ramos on January 5, 2012

Nothing beats spending New Year’s Eve with the family. I got several invitations from friends to spend it with them at a club, hotel, or in Boracay. But Christmas and New Year’s Eve are two of the many holidays that my family loves to celebrate together.

Yes, my family is a typical Pinoy, very superstitious. Almost all of us wore POLA DOTS. Here’s my outfit:

After hearing mass, we all gathered at our house. We were all ready to dig in! We took this photo immediately because we couldn’t wait any longer… we were all starving and tempted to eat the SHRIMPS and SPAGHETTI! Yummy!!!

After dinner, the ladies went to the rooftop to set-up the sound system, laptop, iPad, and TV while the gentlemen proceeded downstairs to prepare the fireworks. It was a crazy New Year’s Eve!

 

Pinoys are very superstitious, so here are some of the things we didn’t forget to do:

1. Wear POLKA DOTS

2. Jump when the clock strikes 12 (to get taller)

3. Loud noise and firecrackers to drive the bad spirit away

4. Prepare round foods

 

Since I was pretty addicted to Video Star, we created an MTV with some of my cousins during New Year’s Eve. Here it goes:

Year-Ender Party – Hollywood Style

Posted in Uncategorized by Farah Ramos on January 1, 2012

December 30, 2011 at Denise Rodriguez’s house in North View

Since 2010, our group which we call KSP, welcomes the New Year together. But since everyone is going back to work on January 2, we decided to have a YEAR-ENDER PARTY!

We agreed to bid farewell to 2011 with our Hollywood-inspired outfits. We had to think of a famous and/ or rich hollywood celebrity as our peg. This would be a good way to say goodbye to all the challenges, negativities, and all the trials we went through and to say hello to being rich and famous in 2012!
