EVERYDAY: I’m Engaged! <3

Last October 27, 2018, my life changed.


Last October 27, we flew to Coron.

Last October 27, we went to Sophia’s Garden Resort.

Last October 27, I ate bagnet for lunch.

Last October 27, I took some pictures and selfies.

Last October 27, we climbed 700+ steps to the peak of Mt. Tapyas.

Last October 27, I laughed with my friends, held Jude’s hands and whispered, ‘ayoko na. pagod na ko’ on the way to the top while sweating like a pig.

Last October 27, Jude patiently and continuously wiped all my sweat and fixed my hair.

Last October 27, we went back to the resort in a van.

Last October 27, It was a normal day and I was happy lady then.

Until I wasn’t.


Perfect by Ed Sheeran was playing when we arrived at the resort. I was singing ” just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own. and in your eyes you’re holding mine”. As I was singing the lyrics, I can hear familiar voices playing in the background while we were on a path with lighted hearts! ❤ ❤ ❤

And then I realized, it was a video of the people who are close and dear to me telling me to ‘SAY YES, JANNA’. ❤


Then there’s this perfect gazebo, a ‘MARRY ME’ plastered right smack in the middle of all our memories, full of our pictures, full of our time together, full of laughter, fights, pain and an overwhelming love for each other. ❤

My Jude thought about everything. He printed about 300 pictures, displayed it mixed with the fairy lights, roses and heart shaped candles. He even shipped everything from Manila and hired a videographer for the perfect proposal SDE. Perfect is an understatement.


He told me things I cannot even remember. He probably told me he loved me. 😀 I honestly cannot remember. I spaced out. I was speechless, stunned and overwhelmed.

He got down on one knee, asked me to be his wife and there’s no other word in the universe I’d reply with than a big fat, screaming YES. ❤


This is scary. This is exciting. This is beautiful.

I know how sacred and precious marriage is. We both are not perfect. We have flaws, we fight, we change but there are also moments that you teach me what unconditional love is. It will be messy at times but there will be perfect moments too. And I’m willing to share each and every moment with you.

You are my silver lining.

You are my Derek. You are my Ross. You are my Ted. You are my Jack.

You are everything good in life. You are my greatest blessing.

You are everything dear to me. You are my best friend.

I love you.


Last October 27, I said my easiest ‘YES’.

Last October 27, I said yes to the man of my dreams.

Last October 27, I said yes to a lifetime with my person.

Last October 27, I got engaged.

Last October 27, I’m not only a happy lady but I became my happiest.

Last October 27, my heart is full and whole.

❤ ❤ ❤


P.S. Watch the SDE Proposal here



The tradition didn’t actually pushed through. We were planning to celebrate our Christmas Dinner Every year at Chef Laudico Guevarra’s. But anyway, We ended up in Top of the Citi in Makati — He wanted an over looking view, which is ironic since we chose a seat inside. Haha.


I know, we look lovely! Plus, it’s been a long time. I miss this guy.

Lechon Kawali with Laing – Php 500 Jude loved his order. It was crispy and would definitely be as good with Binagoongan. Hihi.

Chicken Cordon Bleu in Lemon Butter Sauce  Php 750 It was alright. Not whoah. It was beefy – size was good. But the sauce was kind of sour – that which I didn’t like.

We also ordered a 35 South Sauvignon Blanc – White Wine for Php 950 a bottle. Not Bad, eh?

EAT: Birthday Lunch

Another Birthday lunch Treat from my Date.

Salad – it was too yummmy! Very tasty for a salad.

Parmesan Fish Fillet with Texan Fried Rice.

Chicken Barbeque
You can actually order any two sides with your choice of mains.

Thank you for the Birthday Lunch, babe. You surely know how to spoil me and make me fat.


It’s been a while since our last Saturday Date. Hooray for today!


They have a diner set up. But they also have picnic tables to slightly soften the look. Nolita is a Self service restaurant. All of their pizzas are on the chalk board menu on the counter.


Though they have menus posted up, you can also check out the freshly baked pizzas on the counter so you still have to check if the pizzas you’ve chosen are available.


Cheeseburger Pizza – It was delicious! It was overflowing with cheese. the beef slices are generous too.


Chicken Parmesan – There was a huge chunk of chicken bits on my pizza!! I think the chicken was deep fried first before it was placed on top of it. It was delicious. Though compared to the Cheeseburger, I liked the cheeseburger better. The reason behind it? CHEESE. The Chicken Parmesan was lavished with tomato sauce. It overpowered the parmesan.


Lemonade with Alcohol – You can’t go wrong with Lemonade! and a little booze doesn’t hurt. But seriuosly, you won’t even taste the alcohol. It was G-O-O-D.


Onion Rings – I’ll rephrase that. It should be Gigantic Onion Rings. They were huge. Onions were as huge. The dip was good!


Overall? We didn’t finish anything. Each pizza was not finished. One slice can be shared by two. Everything was like American Size. Haha. But food was good. :)))



We went all the way to Kapitolyo because I didn’t know that there’s already one in Makati. Nonetheless, another restaurant off our Kapitolyo List.


They have this gloomy environment. In my opinion ofcourse. They have this yellow-ish light and the place wasn’t bright enough. The acoustics were awful. I can hear the table next to ours very loudly. And they are a rowdy crowd. But over all, I think they were trying to maintain the old, authentic vibe of a Vietnamese place.


Shrimp Pomelo Salad (Php 195) – Sweet pomelo and shrimp tossed in calamansi-sesame dressing surrounded by lobster cracker. It is best eaten when you place the greens and the shrimp on the cracker and eat it as a whole. I’m not much of a fan of sour tasting dressing though. IMG_0476 Fresh Spring Roll (Php 195) – A mixture of ground pork, shrimp wrapped with dipping sauce. IMG_0477 Vietnamese Rice (Php 90)

IMG_0478Chicken Curry (Php 250) – This is one delicious main entree! Though the parts of the chicken are not the best of the bunch. :/ IMG_0480


After a heavy meal, coffee for us! 😀 Thank you for dinner, babe!

EVERYDAY: The Last Friday of the Year

EVERYDAY: The Last Friday of the Year

I am spending the last friday of the year arguing with this guy. But you know that I love you, liebster. As long as it’s with you, may we be arguing, laughing or goofing around, I am happy to spend all of my Fridays with you.
I love you.
