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.

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!

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

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.

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.

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

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: Tender Bobs & Barcino with my Blockmates


The other friends kept mentioning how rude we are for not inviting all of the class every time we go out.
This is the actual proof. 13 girls of Entrep Class, 9 said yes, 5 came. WOW. Definite proof of why.

We had dinner at Tender Bobs and a drink or two at Barcino.

I miss everyone!

EVERYDAY: Sip and Gogh


Uhuh! It was a surprise all right. 😀 I have been wanting to do this like forever. Unfortunately, the place was far from our usual spot – Makati or Ortigas. Luckily that week, they had a session at Podium! Yayy!

So what exactly is Sip and Gogh you may ask?

You pay Php 1,000 per person – You get to paint (everything is free – apron, paint, canvass) and a glass of wine (may it be white or red).

IMG_6566 Welcome Aprons for the Participants! :)) Are you ready to Gogh?IMG_6561 IMG_6569 A palette of white portions of color splatters. :)) 3 brushes, a small towel and a picture of the pattern.  IMG_6571 Now, for the process of completing the pattern. Don’t you worry now. A host will guide you step by step. Literally, every flicker and movement of your brush, they’ll guide you. 🙂IMG_6575 IMG_6581 IMG_6586 IMG_6593 IMG_6600 IMG_6604 The complete pattern. 😀 IMG_6609 IMG_6613 IMG_6618Definitely more fun! 😀 Yayyy! Wuhoo! It’s worth a try. Hopefully, we get to try other patterns next time! Thank you, Babe!
