Its the third day of our trip and I'm soo loving the cold weather here in Lawndale CA. Its really a big break and relief from the sweltering heat in Manila that was experienced last Holy Week. So far, konti pa lang ang shopping ko coz I'm looking forward to going to outlet stores to get some bargain buys. I was finally able to buy a Canon Powershot, undies from Victoria's Secret, some stuff from Nordstrom Rack and TJ Maxx and a VERY NICE BAG! .. secret na lang muna ang brand! hehe

That's it muna for now.. gotta pack out stuff for our weekend at Palm Spring tomorrow.. hope to post some pics!

I feel..

so REFRESHED! after the Holy Week. We just stayed home last Thursday to pack our stuff, visited my parents on Friday then went to Shangri-la mall on Saturday to have lunch. We were supposed to eat at Steak Town but it was closed so we tried Sumosam for a change. The food was so-so and the price was unreasonable. We just had California Maki, Tempura, Beef Tepanyaki and we shared a cup of Japanese fried Rice and we paid P1,200.. we felt it was too overpriced!

We're all set for our 10pm flight tomorrow to Los Angeles. I'm so excited! Haha! I was still planning to go to work tomorrow since I can leave the office by 4pm but Paolo told me not to go to the office anymore coz I might leave some important stuff and it will be hard to go back home. As I said in my other post, I was the one who did the packing so I know where everything is.

Anyway, it will be a busy day for me today since I will be turning over some work and need to schedule payments on my cards and utilities. Thank God for online banking!!

Another Award

Got my second award from Vina! :)

And now, I'm passing this on to Happy, Sujee and Pat

One Month Old

My blog is now officially one month old!! Wow, ang bilis.. I never thought I could post this much within a months time..

So, how am I after a month? Hmm.. nothing changed that much. We're still TTC after my 2nd round of Clomid.. I'm still not losing hope..

Anyway, how was my weekend? We spent Saturday night at Spiral for a "send-off" dinner kasi some of us are going abroad for vacation of some sort. Kami ni Paolo sa US, Monette and Pat will be going to Europe for their honeymoon and Katz will be in Boston for an immersion or something. We'll see each other again after April 20 na. It was also Benjo's birthday and he brought along his new toy.. a brand new Canon DSLR with the lens care of his Kuya Lem (Karl of Fotogra Weddings). Here are some pics from our dinner:

Obviously enjoying our food..

Paolo loves this shot.. Pang ad daw! Haha!

A "surprise kiss" shot.. Seriously, nobody thought I'd do this kasi I was just passing by on my way to the washroom

My Hand.. paying for the overly-priced drink!

Lastly, my solo shot.. Semi-candid yan! Hahaha!!
The food was great especially the desserts. Nothing new though. I wish they have tepanyaki ice cream like the ones at Heat and Seven Corners. Lugi na ko sa buffet coz I have a small appetite na. We also noticed that their prices increased na. Before we would only pay around P1,800 for 2 (we have discount/membership card) pero now, its almost P2,200 plus drinks. Pero sulit pa din kasi masaya naman si hubby.. hehe..

Monday, March 10, 2008

I am sneaking some blog time while at work.. hehe.. Was able to finish my monthly reports from January to February which is not due until March 15. So that means, I am now free for the whole week! Woohoo!! More time to blog hop and check out some shopping sites.

Anyway, I attended the wedding of Monette and Pat last Saturday at National Shrine in Makati and Makati Shang for the reception. I am part of their entourage as their cord sponsor. Their wedding was a blast! Ang saya to watch them perform a very hip (hop?!!) dance number. Syempre they had to change their shoes to be more comfy and more appropriate for the dance number. Monette was in a pair of pink Chuck Taylors while Pat was I think in a white one..

And syempre, there were so many "kodakan" moments. I must admit, my friends and I are camera addicts so we always have our pictures taken especially on occasions like these where we're all almost complete.

So here are some pictures of the wedding:

Ang nice ng dress namin noh.. Gowns were made by Frederick Peralta. My hair and make up by Boots Salon.

Me and Paolo outside the church after the ceremony. This time, I'm wearing a shrug that came with the gown.

The Girls (with a boy.. hehe)

After the reception. Hanging out at the third floor smoking area of Makati Shang. Already tied my hair since it was kinda hot outside. Oily na din ako here but I love this shot!
For more photos, check this out
One side kwento muna before I end this post. I had my hair and make up done at Boots Salon inside the G Spa in Sgt. Esguerra QC. It was my first time to experience threadin on my eybrows and upper lip. Grabe, ang sakit pala! Sa eyebrows medyo bearable but yung upper lips, shet! ang sakit talaga. I was teary eyed the whole time they were threading it. And super tagal ko din sa parlor. It took me almost 3 hours! I thought nga I'll be late for the church but buti na lang, they started around 3:30pm instead of 3pm.
So there, that's how my weekend went. Time to update my other blog..
