Life Update: Foodie Week

Hello there. Long time no see.

I haven’t written anything here recently, which is a bummer. I’ve been busy with life and work.

June 20 was supposed to be the day that me and majority of my officemates will move to our other site in Bonifacio Global City, but during the middle of the week it was extended by our management to another week. Our official move date will be June 27.

It’s a bittersweet moment for me because this place has been my office “home” for 5+ years. I’m just a very sentimental person and not a person of change.

I got a random idea when I was commuting. I thought that I should try a restaurant or food item each day before I fully leave Eastwood. This sounds like I’m overreacting but trust me, this place is out of way for me and I don’t know when I’ll come back. I decided to do just this week instead off a full 2 weeks.

Maid of Honor Duties: Food Tasting #1

As you all know I am the Maid of Honor in my brother’s wedding this October. Part of my duties is to assist the bride as often as possible, in this case attend different things related to the nuptials (i.e. Wedding Fairs, Food Tastings, of course the Fitting).

Last Saturday I attended one of the many food tastings for the wedding. The couple’s chosen caterer is Juan Carlo Catering and they are very nice and accommodating.

The food tasting was set up at Fernwood Gardens and they know how to deck a place out. What caught my eye the most was the centerpiece, I loved the candles with seashells and the flowers.

Life Happens #6

It has been a pretty busy few weeks, with the wedding planning and all. I’m excited that we’re in the last stretch of the planning. We’ve had our consultation for our gowns, this is all real now.

That’s the inspiration behind my dress. I like the flow of the skirt but I want a new top for it.

2016 In Full Swing

The first week of 2016 has passed and reality is here to pick me up.

After all the festivities it was back to work for me on Monday. I did not miss the commute whatsoever. One of the things that I changed about my commute is riding the MRT (train) to Cubao instead of riding the bus from the entrance of my village to there.

Pro: It reduced my commute to atleast 30 mins
Con: Getting squished in the train for time to time

Twenty Fifteen

In a few minutes 2015 will be over.

I can’t believe it went by so fast but I can say that it was my most fulfilling year yet. I traveled, I socialized, discovered new things, and reflected on everything that has happened throughout the year.

I celebrated my four years of working on February 14. Man, it’s been that long already. What an achievement for me.

A pasta tree to get everyone in the Christmas spirit

Monday, I got my teeth repaired. I got my tooth extracted last month and the dentist suggested to fix my broken fillings, so I agreed. She is done with the upper left half side and next month she will start on the upper right side. It’s a long process but at least during my brother’s wedding, I’ll have good teeth.

Life Happens (Christmas Edition): It’s The Most Wonderful Time of The Year

Processed with VSCO with t1 preset

Hello December! Time for the cold air, a bit of sweaters and Christmas cheer. I wish Manila was cold enough so that I could wear a Christmas sweater all day but no, the sun manages to shine very brightly throughout the day. Sigh.

New text on the board! I really wanted a small tree for my headboard but luckily I found this small tree in our pile of Christmas decorations. It fits perfectly with the rest of my things.

I planned to blog every day this month but I know that will be a huge commitment and due to my work schedule, I just cannot do that at the moment. So I decided to just do a weekly thing because I have been abandoning this blog (I am sorry, blog) Let’s get this show on the road.
