Girl Bonding
Posted on: 22nd of April 2009 | Under: Life & Love

I’ve been spending a lot of time with close friends lately. Last week, I was busy running wedding errands with Cecilia, my closest childhood friend. Being one of her brisdesmaids, I helped her with her invitations and tagged along to her gown fitting too.

The weekend was then spent bonding with more friends over food, drinks and Rockband for JR’s birthday.

Then Monday afternoon, I was happy to have lunch and coffee with Chinky, another close childhood friend, who was in town for a few days.



It’s always nice hanging out with friends you practically grew up with. No matter how long we don’t see each other (it’s been about two to three years), we never have problems picking up from where we left off. <3

Tomorrow, it’ll be dinner with some Pinoy plurkers/bloggers (I’m excited to meet new friends!). Next week, it’ll be more girl bonding over a salon trip and a weekend getaway. Then mid next month I’m flying back to Manila for a little over a week to relax and unwind. I haven’t planned anything for my trip yet (no rv camping or anything), but I’m really looking forward to seeing my family and more friends. There truly is no place like home. <3

A Night of Food, Drinks and Rockband

Celebrating JR’s 28th Birthday started off at midnight when I woke him up from his nap and surprised him with a slice of oreo cheesecake and the link to his online gift.


It was nice seeing him read through all the messages, but it was even more heartwarming seeing him all teary-eyed by the end of it. <3



On A Mission
Posted on: 21st of April 2009 | Under: Life & Love

I’m on a mission to lose weight (naturally and no diet pills like Enphedra, please) in a span of about a month. I need to shed off at least four to five kilograms, before the end of May, because I seriously don’t want to look like a balloon for my close friend’s wedding. Haha! This might be a bit of a problem when I fly back to Manila next month for a quick trip. As early as now, I’m already excited about all the food escapades. I’ve been dreaming of having halo-halo and sisig for several days, and it’s not even funny anymore! o_O I just wish I could eat everything I please without having to worry about the pounds. Food is just to hard to resist!

So yeah, good luck to me. Dieting is just so hard when you’re a food buff like me. =P

To Someone Special
Posted on: 18th of April 2009 | Under: Life & Love, Shoutous

Almost every year, I try to come up with online gifts for the boyfriend‘s Birthday. It has somehow become a yearly tradition of mine. The first couple of years, I was always eager to come up with different things to surprise him, but I lost the creativity and drive to create them for the past three years. Those were also the years that I spent very little time on my internet life and more time on my actual one, so I guess I somehow had an excuse. =P

For the benefit of those who weren’t present in those creative years of mine, here’s the list of the “online gifts” that I gave him:

  • 22nd Bday – This was actually before we got together. =P One of the many “projects” Rachel and I did. =D
  • 23rd Bday -Made this with the help of Rachel again. =D
  • 24th Bday – A simpler one-page greeting.
  • 25th Bday – Just a blog greeting.
  • 26th Bday – I didn’t make anything online =P
  • 27th Bday – No online gift again. But I flew here to Singapore to spend several days with him. I was still working back in Manila then.

Today is his 28th Birthday. For my online gift this year (I finally had some time on my hands!), I compiled greetings from a handful of his family and friends. A total of 46 greetings this time! =D
