The whole morning today was spent on rummaging through all the closets of the rooms in our house, cleaning them out for the garage sale. My mom's hyped and swears she'll never have one again in the near future, because the logistics of a garage sale is C-R-A-Z-Y. The house is basically a mess at the moment, and we're not even done pricing and completely leaving the closets clean. But it's break time for now, and I wanted to share these awesome pictures...
...Because I found my Polly Pockets! YAY.
I don't know about you, but Polly Pocket (and I'm talking about the teeny pocket-sized ones, not the ones they've been marketing recently that are humongous) was an integral part of my childhood. In short, they were the best toys a girl at the time could have, apart from the Sky Dancers.
|I had a beauty kit, a school with stamps, a nursery with stamps, a storybook that lit up, a drive-thru with a car, a garden party, a safari, a stable (although I think this was a faker), and three houses.|
|Got them out of the closet while sorting through stuff to sell for the garage sale this Saturday. Suffice it to say that these are not for sale! :D|
|This was my first ever Polly Pocket. I find it funny now that my thesis is on a zoo! What a coincidence!|
|This was my favorite, I think. It was a storybook of under-the-sea adventures, and the best part was that it lit up when you put batteries in. This one had a dolphin, a sunken ship, mermaids and an octopus!|

It's not like I'll be playing with them the whole day like before, but the sentimental value's still there, and who are we kidding - I took care of these toys and there's not a mark of dust on them. Hihi. They're going back to the closet, but I'm sure I'll pull them out again someday.
Meanwhile, it's lunch break for me, Mom and Manang Weng, and I'm waiting for the hot dogs to cook. The pile of saleable items is in front of me as I type, and the pile is sure to multiply in the next few hours of the afternoon.
|The rest of the mess is in the rooms waiting to be cleaned and placed here.|
|Crazy mess that spans from the dining room to the sala.|
