Happy Birthday To Us! (2018 Edition)

Birthday 2018 Edition

As always, I was on leave on my birthday so I went home to Baguio on the night of March 22.

Most parts of Baguio had a scheduled brownout on my birthday! The sad thing was that, I was not able to charge my phones before the brownout which started around 7:30 AM! The sadder thing was that it extended to 2 days and 1 night, instead of the original schedule which was just whole day of Friday. Nakakaloka ang walang charged phone hahahahaha. I think I can live with it naman. Medyo wrong timing lang because I had plans over the weekend and of course we rely on our phones these days for faster communication.

Anyway, going back.

Afternoon of March 23 was pamper myself hours. After that, I went to Starbucks to do some work, and charge my phones while waiting for the BF.

We went to Forest House as always, because of our free birthday cake hahahaha! It was a joint birthday celebration bilang March 23 ako and March 24 sya. It was just a quick dinner and we went home after. It’s a little frustrating because we cannot take too many pictures because we were both conserving our batteries. But other than that, it was still a good night of celebration.

We’ll see where we’ll be next year. Gosh, first birthday celebration na namin yun bilang mag-asawa nyahahaha!

Pictures!

Thank you Lord for blessing us with another year to enjoy Your gift of life. We are forever grateful!

P.S. Napasearch ako sa 2016 pictures namin. Ang awkward pa namin noon since less than a year pa lang kami and I was not really openly posting about us then. But for documentation purposes, I’ll post some of our 2016 pictures too! Hahahaha.

2018 Week 11: Ninang Duties | S&R Sale

March 12-18, 2018

First, happy birthday in heaven, Daddy! I miss you and Mama everyday! (March 20, 2018)

And for the updates…

It’s that time of the year again for the most awaited S&R sale. I did not physically go but I have enabler friends hehehe. I asked her to pick up some snacks, chocolates, honey citron tea and conditioner for me. I had to stop myself from buying all the things on sale. Bawal umiyak ang wallet.

HoneyCitronTea

↑Honey Citron Tea which I have yet to try. I learned about this from Mommy Fleur hehe.

cof

↑Isingit ko lang ito. Not from S&R but a teammate shared it to us and it is so good! I need more of this!!!!

I went home last weekend for the thanksgiving celebration of my friend and her family. I tagged along my nieces. I had the permission to do so.

First, celebration for the baptism of her kids. I am a godmother to her last child. The church is in Rosario La Union and the celebration is at their residence at Camp 3, Kennon Road. They have a strategic location because it’s just 30-40 minutes away from both Baguio and La Union.

It was also their 10th wedding anniversary last March 14. One decade of staying married is surely something worth celebrating.

Lastly, it was her birthday last March 16 so another reason to celebrate.

↑Me with the nieces.

We left their home early afternoon. My other friend and her hubby dropped us off in town so my nieces and I went to SM to window shop. I was able to buy new curtains that match the new paint in my room. It’s in light gray.

We also had early dinner before heading home. I slept early on Saturday night because I barely slept during my trip home and we had to leave early that morning. I woke up after 9 hours. Sarap.

On Sunday afternoon, I stayed in Starbucks SM to work for a while while waiting for the BF to finish his work and meet up with me. We just had dinner and then went to the terminal to wait some more for my 10PM trip.

↑Dinner at Sizzling Plate along Session Road. We ordered their Australian porterhouse. I also ordered one sansrival which is still so good. Lamon pa besh!

bty

↑Goofing around at the terminal while waiting for my trip. We spent a few minutes listing down our potential entourage and potential principal sponsors. I’ll write dedicated posts for anything wedding-related.

The end.

Have a great week ahead. As for me, I can’t wait to go home again on Thursday night hehehehe.

2018 Week 9: Weekend At Home | Panagbenga | New Room Paint

February 26 – March 4, 2018

I went home to Baguio last weekend for some R&R and a special errand.

I left Manila on Friday evening and arrived in Baguio after 3.5 hours! I booked at JoyBus so that the route will be SCTEX and TPLEX without stopovers.

The very first thing I did as soon as I arrived was to check on my newly painted room. I love how it turned out. It’s waaaayyyy more relaxing than its multi-colored predecessor. While it was expensive to redo it, I’m glad I pushed for this project.

The color is a lighter version of whipple blue from Titan Paint’s brochure. The painters mixed 3 color options and my brother picked the best choice from there. Basta I loved how it turned out kasi ang aliwalas talaga and nakaka-relax yung color.

↑Fresh paint.

↑My black and white bathroom. Still need a divider. Ang mahal ng initial quote hmp.

I spent a few hours on Saturday morning putting things back in my room. I am so back in my room hahaha!

My nieces and one of my grandchildren went out in the afternoon for some Session Road in Bloom experience. But first, lunch at Jack’s Restaurant. My auntie met us too.

Panagbenga2018-1

↑Sundae for a hot day.

Panagbenga2018-2

Panagbenga2018-3

↑Photo ops and a quick break from all that walking.

In the evening, the little ones went home with my sister and brother-in-law while my aunt, teenager niece and I stayed behind for the night market hihihi!

Panagbenga2018-4

↑Waiting for the night market to start at 9PM. Literal palang night ang simula nito hahahaha!

There were a lot of nice pieces but not for my size hahahaha. Saklap. But I was able to buy an outfit for my niece’s confirmation in April. Sya talaga nakinabang bilang ang payat nya hahahaha. Even my aunt was a little sad because wala rin syang mahanap na cardigan hahaha. Ako jogging pants na tig bente lang naman ang hanap ko. Merong isa wahahaha.

On Sunday, I invited some aunties and uncles for an early birthday lunch and for an announcement hihihi.

bdaycake2018

↑My sweet nephew brought a cake, which unfortunately I was not able to taste as we got busy after lunch. Well, I ate two of the cherries hehe.

The BF and I had dinner before my 9PM trip. We ate at Pizza Hut because it is near the terminal and there were still seats available. We were on the right side of the city, and near the window, therefore we had a glimpse of the fireworks that officially closed the Panagbenga 2018.

The announcement? Suffice to say that someone needs to take dieting seriously and that same someone also needs to start planning for a wedding  😀  😛 .

The end.

Have a great week ahead.

2018 Week 7: Happy Chinese New Year!

February 12-18, 2018

Last Wednesday, February 14 was Ash Wednesday so I attempted to wake up early to attend mass, which I successfully did even with just a few hours of sleep.

I was soooo looking forward to the holiday last Friday. I was planning to leave the office early, which did not happen unfortunately. I was waiting for a ride home when I was startled because of the fireworks. Well, it was already 12AM, that’s why. Happy Chinese New Year!

My friend and I went to Binondo supposedly for some food trip. Unfortunately, there were a lot of people and all the restaurants are full. What were we thinking? Hahahaha! So after dropping by the supermarket that sells cheaper apple cider vinegar, we decided to just leave. On our way towards Binondo church, the parade has already started. We saw Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada and the reigning Mr. and Miss Chinatown. We went towards Quintin Paredes Street where we booked Uber to bring us back to Makati hahahaha. So titas. Suko agad sa crowd.

Calamansi

↑Calamansi in pots! I was amazed, but I was sad because it was expensive hahaha. The small one is Php 1,700.00 while the big one is Php 3,500.00. I’ll just buy a small one then let it grow haha.

Binondo (02-16-2018)

↑I was able to capture the reigning (?) Miss Chinatown but was not able to see the Mr. because we were busy navigating the streets to get out hehe.

Since it was already almost 3PM when we reached Makati, we decided to just avail of Dad’s merienda because of more choices (as always) for a cheaper price at Php 258.00 per pax.

We went home after because we got really exhausted because of the heat and crowd hahahaha.

The rest of the days were spent at home, except when I went to mass, to Din Tai Fung for takeout of xia long bao, and to the grocery for green mangoes!

ShangLanterns

↑Lanterns at Shangri-la Mall.

The end.

Have a great week ahead.

2018 Week 1: Happy New Year!

January 1-7, 2018

Happy New Year!!!! I hope your first week of 2018 was great!

I did not have any plans on January 1 but few days before New Year, an uncle asked our plans, and so instant January 1 lunch invite to all the uncles and aunties on Mama’s side hehe. Nasanay na kasi silang nag-iinvite ang nanay ko dati kaya siguro until now, hinahanap pa rin nila.

I forgot to take a picture of our pang fiestang handa sayang.

↑Eye to eye with the newest member of our extended family. Such a cute baby! Tapos umiyak sya after a few minutes na hawak ko hahahahaha!

I was on leave on January 2 so I spent most of the time cleaning the house and dismantling the Christmas tree. Medyo hassle pala yung type ng tree na nabili ko hahaha. I did it before leaving for Manila kasi baka nakatayo pa yun sa next na uwi ko nyahahaha.

I traveled back to Manila in the early evening. Akala ko naman nagsibalikan na ang mga tao. Aba, blockbuster pa rin sa terminal! Buti na lang umabot naman ako next bus. At buti na lang mabilis naman ang byahe.

And it was back to work on January 3 but I was already waiting for the weekend to come nyahahahaha!

Weekend

I spent Saturday reading a romance novel at natapos ko maghapon hehe. For a change, I was able to resist tending to my Farmville.

↑Kilig kilig din pag may time. I tried looking for other books in several National Bookstore and Powerbooks branches to no avail. I’ll try the other branches.

I miss this kind of relaxation. I’ll try to read more books again, not just blogs. Actually, marami akong dapat basahin. Kaso mas kailangan ng mga yun ng mas matinding brain cells eh, kaso pag weekends, nakabakasyon din ang work brain cells ko hehehe.

I met up with a friend on Saturday evening for dinner. We ate at Gangnam Wings in SM Megmall. We ordered their chicken and beef bulgogi cheese fries. Ang sarappppp! Umulit kami ng order hihihi. No pictures sa sobrang gutom. It was my first proper meal that day eh hehehe.

I went with her after dinner to canvas for winter clothes as she and her officemates are off to Korea by the end of this month.

I also did some household chores. Some lang kasi di pa rin ako tapos.

I also went to the derma para sa kung anong anik-anik sa UA at fez.

And someone got too excited with all the year end sales at the mall. Too excited and was not able to resist hence she went home with some shopping bags hehehe. No regrets naman because I wanted all the items I got.

Ganito kasi yun. Sometime last year, I tried on some clothes in several shops. While I wanted those that I tried, I knew I won’t have the heart to buy them at regular prices kasi sobrang ang mamahal talaga hahaha!. Kahit magdildil ako ng asin, hindi ko pa rin maatim na bilhin! And so I just tried to check out if those items are still around during this sale. At nandon sila! As in lahat ng bet ko noon. Naloka ako sa tuwa! Hahahaha! Paano ka naman hindi mawiwindang eh halos lahat 50% off.

Yung isang nachambahan ko, jeans sa Gap. I am not sure of the exact amount pero I think between Php 2,500-3,000 siguro. Nabili ko sya ng Php 995.00 na lang tapos himalang may kasya pala sa akin don. Choosy pa ba ako? Syempre hindi na hahaha!

Basta, natutuwa na ako ngayon sa mga end of season sales hehehehe! I’ll do the same strategy again this year – fit potential buys and see if they are still available during sales. If yes and I was able to grab it, meant to be hehehehe.

Ok, enough about shopping. Susmio, first week of the year, gastos pinagkaabalahan ko hehehehe. But I have budget for that so I’m not worried. Pero kailangan nang tumigil kasi pag tinuloy ko pa, yun wala nang budget hehehehe.

Ok, the end for week 1. Hope you guys have a great week ahead.
