We printed out name plates for each guests that are carefully seated on top of their plates with floral designs (perfect for the theme) and with the couple’s hashtag. Floral crowns are also placed together with the name plates. ❤

And just some of the food that we ordered. ❤

Some games from  our shower: What’s in your bag, Pin the Bra and some Icing on your face.

EAT MAKATI: MANDO’S WINGSHACK


Since the mother is out of our radius, lunch outs are more frequent. 🙂 Wendy suggested this Wingshack but after trying them out, I WARN YOU NOT TO.

The place was a bit small, just like the other hole in the walls in the area. Inside its shack can fit about 4 tables of 4.

We got there, observed the menu and tried to order:

20170515_12123120170515_121218

TACOS – All of them are not available

BURGER – Not available

CHICKEN TENDERS – Not available.

All we are left with is their WINGS. I know it’s a wings place but what if we wanted to try all sorts from their menu? And they only have 1 freakin food in their menu that’s available!!

We were there at 12:15 pm. They open at 12nn. Shouldn’t they be there at 11 am to prepare the food already? We ordered our food at 12:20 – Wings. We were served after more than an hour! Food was not even hot, not even warm! Food was served at 1:30 pm. Some portions of the plate was wet, sauce was bland, food was cold. None of it was a good enough experience!

Hayy. We all ordered Wings with the following Sauces:

Beer BBQ

Spicy K-Town

Sweeracha and Buffalo Style.

All four of us was disappointed.

NEVER AGAIN.

While the three of us ordered the Kimchi Steak and Eggs for Php 225.

It was GOOD. It was not as awesome as Wildflour’s but it’s worth a try. 🙂

EVERYDAY: Despedida


To all the faces I see for 2.5 years, I am grateful for the friendship, work ethics and all the learning I gained throughout the years. This is my first home and will always be a benchmark to all my succeeding ones.

I may not be vocal enough or it might just be my ego getting in the way of my tears but do know that I really will miss everyone and the habit of going to the office and bullying each of you and I will treasure all of my BOC experience.

BMO signing off. 🙂

LEARN: The 3 P’s of Survival


I came across this article on facebook and is definitely worth sharing. It’s level of reference and ‘relatability’ is high.

COMMENCEMENT ADDRESS OF SHERYL SANDBERG

quote-Bear-Grylls-survival-can-be-summed-up-in-three-183727

  • when life sucks you under, you can kick against the bottom, break the surface, and breathe again. I learned that in the face of the void — or in the face of any challenge — you can choose joy and meaning.
  • The easy days ahead of you will be easy. It is the hard days — the times that challenge you to your very core — that will determine who you are. You will be defined not just by what you achieve, but by how you survive.

 

  1. Personalization  – the belief that we are at fault. This is different from taking responsibility, which you should always do. This is the lesson that not everything that happens to us happens because of us.Not taking failures personally allows us to recover — and even to thrive.
  2. Pervasiveness – the belief that an event will affect all areas of your life. There’s no place to run or hide from the all-consuming sadness.There is more to life than your grief. The world keeps on revolving.
  3. Permanence – the belief that the sorrow will last forever. For months, no matter what I did, it felt like the crushing grief would always be there.

 

think about how much worse things could be.Finding gratitude and appreciation is key to resilience.find that gratitude — not just on the good days, but on the hard ones, when you will really need it.

I hope that you live your life — each precious day of it — with joy and meaning. I hope that you walk without pain — and that you are grateful for each step.

And when the challenges come, I hope you remember that anchored deep within you is the ability to learn and grow. You are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. Like a muscle, you can build it up, draw on it when you need it. In that process you will figure out who you really are — and you just might become the very best version of yourself.

VENICE: Pull for the Day


Because there’s always a first.

And because the bank is in some serious cutting costs issues. I’m a Pull.
