S is for Steelone

A wise woman once said, "Diamonds are a girl's best friend".

Be it in real life or at Stardoll, friendships are like diamonds in the rough. In a virtual world which spawned ruthless little girls who are incessantly on a wild hunt for the ever elusive Hot Buys, Signatures, & Rares, I found one of the most exceptional that is to unearth.

And her name is Steelone

Ever since I got back to Stardoll from a six-month hiatus last year, S, as I fondly address her, welcomed me back to Stardoll uniquely similar to that of the biblical story The Prodigal Son. Never have I felt so overwhelmed by a member whom I hardly know that time BUT it felt like we've shared our childhood together.

Like precious diamonds which are cut by their own dust, Steelone revealed her utmost superiority through her unique talent. Admittedly, I am a big fan of her gift.


From one sketch to another, Steelone has unfailingly amazed me with her masterpieces which I like to refer as, The New Classic: raw, piercing, revolutionary, soulful, whimsical yet touching.

Witness for yourself:

I told you so.

No matter what is said by who, what is done on this & that, true talent indubitably shines through. Her wonderful showcase of ability is just plain genius.

Now, you can just imagine the JOY Noelle & I felt with this priceless drawing she has given us! I personally value this more than any virtual signature dress on Stardoll. No MKA or Lottery Dress can make me this HAPPY! And trust me, it takes a lot to even make my lips curl. This artwork is something that highly value. Something that has a lot of heart & flair poured onto. Something incomparable. Something only SHE can do.

THIS something, I shall treasure for all time.

Money, they come & go. But friends, like diamonds, last forever.

Real ones, that is.

For your genuine friendship, admirable courage, indescribable talent & timeless beauty,


for inspiring us all!

You truly are a work of art!

Can I Just Say?


Can I Just Say {& I Just Wanna Be Honest} is the title of my upcoming string of articles on this blog. Okay. Okay. I know, I may have been "quite" inactive with posting {Please forgive me girls} but uh, I've been sooo pre-occupied for the past few months. Since I got back to Manila, every single day, I consider precious.


This is the ONLY place where smiles are widest, hugs are tightest & welcomes are warmest. And tans are honey-est!

Aaanyway, I'm glad I can now warm up my palms & tap my fingers on both hands forming a pyramid of contemplation. I have been itching to write all my archived thoughts about Stardoll since most of the time, I'm slaving in the kitchen either carefully plating my dishes or perfecting my gastrique.

Ah, but today is a FRESH START.

And surprisingly, a FRESH START PAGE by Stardoll to go with it!


Lovely, don't you think?

With all these new remixes that Stardoll is doing to its site, there is so much to LOVE!


 The fact that I am starting to scribble again, right?

I am ICÔNE: Steelone

2009. As we, Stardollians, usher in the new year, a new page in this blog unfolds. "Are you an ICÔNE?" was the question a lot of you guys pondered on.

What is an ICÔNE?

...a French variant of the English word Icon. An object of uncritical devotion. Something to look up to and admire.

Looking for the first ICÔNE proved to be an arduous task but an easy decision. The person we chose is an epitome of reinvention and courage. She is not afraid to go against the flow and proved herself triumphant at the end.

She is a fun fearless female. She is STEELONE.
