VENICE


Mistakes are only proof that one is trying.

When the boyfriend couldn’t pick me up since he’ll be coming from Binondo. 😦

VENICE: For 2017


I don’t have the perfect resolutions right now, I don’t even have a clear picture of what my goals are for this year. But all I know, or all I can assure right now —- is that I’ll somehow be a better version of myself. It may be a little, a lot, a bit in some areas.. but I’ll be a better one.

EVERYDAY: CHRISTMAS WITH LOVE


HA! Finally got to spend time with the Love of My Life! It has been a stressful week. I’ve been so excited to see him and too tired to even stay awake at the same time. I am sorry babe.

And after our third attempt, he was able to try Marcia Adams!

We both chose the Amalfi Prawns as our starter.

My Handsome Date ordered the Aromatic Pork which is very succulent and deserves to be the star of their menu.

I ordered the Chicken Kebab. – A first for me, to actually pick a Chicken Dish. It was not bad, paired with its dip – I can actually finish the plate. But I was too full already.

For dessert, the lovely date ordered the Banana Split.

Thank you so much, Love! They are my new favourite, thanks to you. I love you and Merry, Merry Christmas, Sweetheart!

MOVIE: THE PERFECT MATCH


the-perfect-match-2016

TRAILER

I don’t know what it is with girls trying to change a man. Or rather, the ego or the feel-good vibes of a playboy changing for just one girl. Right?

I, for one – am not aiming for that. I don’t go around looking for a playboy. But hey, it certainly would feel darn good if I’m his exception — if I turn out to be his trigger, his cannon ball, his khaleesi or simply his dream girl.

“Charlie is a playboy who’s convinced that relationships are dead even though his sister, a therapist, tries to tell him otherwise. His best friends bet him that if he sticks to one woman for one month, he’s bound to fall in love. Charlie takes the bet because he believes that he’s immune to love, until he meets the beautiful and mysterious Eva. Charlie coaxes Eva into a casual affair but soon finds out that she has turned the tables on him, after realizing he wants a bit more from their relationship.”

I just love how she’s dressed in all the scenes! CLASS – SEXY – FINESSE

Chick Flick, 100%. But it’s comedic – romantic – light movie.

TRAVEL ZAMBALES: Pundaquit


I am too excited for this trip because I won’t be able to do this for about a year. But let’s not focus on the idea that I’ll have a tripless year. Haha.

But before we proceed to Zambales, we ate at CBTL – NLEX, our favorite Spanish Sardines Pasta with the coffee to keep our eyes from permanently closing.

20160524_075820

We are going to stay at Capones Vista Resort in Pundaquit, Zambales. 

20160524_12303620160524_13481520160524_164959

If you’ve ever been to Zambales, you’d know that the sand is gray, the waves are strong and it’s about 3 – 4 hours drive from Manila. We have a pretty country – mild room, don’t you say?:)

The resort has their own cafeteria – you can either stay outside, facing the pool area or stay inside where the small / bar counter is.We stayed outside.

20160524_13092020160524_130043

For lunch, We ate Sinigang na Hipon and Grilled Pusit. Both are superb! 😀

First and Second Day at Home before heading out to get baked.

20160524_16563220160524_15055420160524_15210120160524_160906

Aside from the 2 families and a barkada of 5 — we were pretty much the only ones at the resort. :))

20160524_202755

For Dinner, We had Lechon Macau, Sizzling T-Bone Steak and Hokkaido Soup. The Service is Blah though. Servers at the cafeteria showed that they pretty much do not want to be disturbed. We scheduled for a Massage and Mani – Pedi  but both were forgotten. We followed up the massage and was told that it will arrive at 10pm but showed up around 11:15pm.

Second Day was really a quiet day for rest, we stayed there listening to music, taking a dip, making conversation, lying around and just thinking about life in general (I know!) Haha.

Well, there it is. 😀 Overall, I am happy about the trip – It would have been better if the better half was with me though. The place is great, service is a no no.

VENICE: It takes courage to let go of the familiar.


I’m letting go of my comfort zone of 4 years. As I have discussed with my Mom, I also have to get used to the new treatment of what will be handed to me. Not to be an awful ass, but I was treated with High Respect and Awe followed me where I walked. — Now I will have to start all over again. No one will know my name, no one will know of my achievements, of my work and nobody even cares – but that’s how it will be now and I have to accept that and adapt. I will have to start with small talks (which I absolutely hate), I will have to smile and smile and smile to people (which is meh for me too) and like I said before, I have zero charm and I absolutely wouldn’t call myself a pleaser.

CHANGE IS SCARY. BUT ALLOWING FEAR TO STOP YOU FROM GROWING, EVOLVING AND PROGRESSING IS EVEN SCARIER.

I may not look like it, but I was scared to death during that time. I had hundreds of butterflies in my stomach, my hands were sweating and I was rehearsing some lines in my head while I also try to remember all their brands. Whew. With God’s Grace, I made it. 😀 Thank you. ❤
