And my birthday would never be complete without celebrating it with my family.
We had dinner at Fely J’s in Greenbelt.
Meet the bunch!

It was impossible to take a picture of all the food since we were at a long table.
But we ordered for Sizzling Sisig, Adobo (which was super tender), Pritong Tilapia in Plum Sauce, Gising Gising, Kare-kare, Pansit Guisado, Lechon Kawali and Mechado.

Afterwhich, they still had some room for sweets so we went straight to Gelatissimo.

Thank you all for celebrating with me.
Thank you for the Green Long Sleeves, Black Pants and Notepads.

EVERYDAY: Jude’s 25th Birthday


It’s that tme o the year again: Jude’s Birthday. It’s his 25th. There were no surprises this year, which I regret. (I’m sorry, babe). I was contemplating where to book a surprise, but unfortunately, in this scenario, Cebu is an ‘unfortunate’ excuse. A small get away before the actual one is impossible. So we settled for Tagaytay instead.

Since we were more than early, we took our time in one of the biggest Starbucks, the new one.

20151007_101905

We were planning to eat Marcia Adams. But, as the prepared girlfriend that I am, I booked no reservations. :/ We ended up in Buon Giorno Caffe and Bistro. – No regrets!

20151007_120722

And here we are, glad we went here on a Weekday. It was almost just us. The view was clear and it was quiet.

20151007_120808

We started off with a wine. 😀 The boyfriend loved it.. I too, as it doesn”t have a bitter strong taste to it even though it’s red.

20151007_121237

I hope it comes to no surprise for you that we ordered Fettucini Alla Carbonara for Php 320. A classic with cream and eggs. It was absolutely DIVINE.

20151007_121916

Another one of our favorites, Quattro Formaggi for Php 375. It’s four cheese, obviously. And it can never go wrong! Cheese? Yes please! 😀

20151007_131842Now, the gift.  wanted to give something that can be treasured, and kept with for a really long time. Not to be overly excited, But I wanted to give something that we hopefully pass down. 😀 Hopefully. It’s his 25th, right? Definitely, a watch. I went over with Tsovet, Nixon and Meister. Originally, I wanted Rolex (Classic) or Omega but that was clearly out of my pocket’s capacity. But look where it got me! A classic looking watch. 😀 I was literally crossing my fingers that he’d like the watch. And thankfully, he did. :)))

Happy, Happy Birthday, Babe! I love youuuuu.

EVERYDAY: Happy 24th Birthday!


It’s my Romeo’s Birthday! And I was feeling uneasy weeks before his birthday. It was a Sunday  which would only mean that I am not able to prepare any surprise for him on the day itself.

Let’s skip the planning part. Let’s head to the day itself. As I told you, it was a Sunday. I would have to share him with his family, of course. As early as 8 in the morning, he fetched me and went to his house to fetch his Mom and Brother and Cousin. Anyway, Lunch?

Lunch: Mesa, Megamall.

Food: Inihaw Platter, Adobo Flakes, Baby Squid Adobo, Sisig, Pork Binagoongan and Gising-Gising.

Too much food. There was plenty of leftovers good for the next day.

The Birthday Boy and his Cookie Cake. Of course, My cake was neglected, left to melt.

We also had Starbucks where his Aunts has been telling me his Childhood. And we had Mass after.

Happy, Happy Birthday Babe. I love you.

EVERYDAY: Ninang Irma’s 59th Birthday at Microtel


Every year, We celebrate her birthday at Lunchtime. She then decided this year to gather all of our relatives in my fater’s side to join her on her 59th birthday. 

Image

And just a series of photos okay? Because there is too much of it. 

ImageImage

There was a lot of singing from the crowd. Image

We also had  agame. The game facilitator will place 10 safety pins on all parts of the guys. The girls – girlfriends / wives blindfolded will now have to look for the 10 pins. Now this is my sister and her fiance. And he had a safety pin on top of his crotch. Imagine trying to touch your way out of the game knowing your mom is also watching. Haha. Image

My cousins who I only get to see once a year. ImageImage

We went to mass at Paco Church. It’s the feast of St.Pancratius today and it is also where my parents got married. It is pretty. :)) And pre-nup worthy!

Happy Mother’s day!


Happy Mother's day!

It’s a day to treat all of our mothers like a queen!!.:)) Isn’t my mom so pretty?:)) and a great caring and oh so loving too!

I gave her a perfume and a dress for this day!

We took her out for lunch at Uncle Cheffys at Burgos Circle! We didn’t even finish any of the food. My dad ordered way too many. Haha. Maybe he thought it was his time for a payback since my sister and I will be the one paying for the food. After, Watched 21 jumpstreet at greenbelt 3! and had icecreams later at Icebergs!

I love you, Ma!
