Holiday

Two long weekends in a row is just so so so so cool!

I’d never had such a restful weekend since the middle of the year. Two days of rest over the weekend were never enough. Not that I’m complaining, but just really happy that I get to enjoy another long weekend.

My roommie and I went to our favorite, “quiet” mall to just unwind. Had some Chinese for our late lunch, watched the movie, “Thor” which was really entertaining and did some little shoes and bread shopping.

I just thank God that tomorrow is just Saturday, and I still have 2 days to just relax and do the things I enjoy doing.

Here’s a photo of our bread shopping. I had my first Earl Grey Latte croughnut.

Beautifully 29

I just celebrated my 29th birthday a few hours ago.

I’m just wondering sometimes why a birthday has to be kept in secret;why some people are so shy telling others that it’s their birthday.

I love celebrating birthdays -either it’s mine or my family or friends. I just love to celebrate it. Not because of gifts or cakes, but because it’s an expression of being joyful for another blessed year that passed by. It’s celebrating life!

And yes, I love month-long birthdays! I mean, we get to celebrate it once a year, why not make it longer, right? 🙂 I dunno, it’s just really me. Somehow, it becomes an excuse just to be with the people who you don’t see for weeks or months and they just can’t say no cause it’s your birthday. 🙂

I had an awesome day today, despite of some issues at work. I just can’t let it rain on my birthday. 🙂 Since I don’t have my family here, I’m still blessed that I get to spend my day with my spiritual family, co-workers and close friends.

And of course, I got to blow my 29th candle. 🙂 What’s a birthday without a candle, right? Hehe… Just kidding!

Now, life going 30 is just beginning. I’m looking forward for 2 things this year. It’s between me and the Lord and some friends. 😉

I praise God for a fruitful 29th year!

Cheers!

To God be the glory!!

Nuvali

My roomie, Kim and I met up with my friend Nang Yan at Bel-air in Laguna, then, took us to Nuvali. We planned the Saturday afternoon to bike around Nuvali, then do some strolling after. On our way to Nuvali, the rain poured down. So we decided to just stroll around the stores first until the rain stops.

Nang Yan got hungry so we decided to just eat first since it’s still raining. We found this cute, classic restaurant called Toast Box that we all immediately fell in love with the place. Hehe… And just the right food  we were looking for snack.

And so, our bike plan (and suppose to jog also) turned out to be an afternoon delight at Toast Box. We decided to cancel biking and just hang out instead. I had to change my outfit since I was really dressed up to jog and bike. Haha!

The afternoon didn’t turn out the way we planned it but we definitely enjoyed the rest of the day! 🙂 We will definitely go back, and this time, we will definitely bike! Burn the calories! 🙂

Nuvali is a great place to be if you want to get out of Metro Manila during weekends.

L-R: me, Nang Yan, Kim

Another

…long weekend over.

I just love this month! We had two consecutive long weekends and I am so grateful to be able to spend those with people who are dear to me.

Just this recent long weekend, my brother was here for a specific reason which turned out to be disappointing. But then, I don’t want us to dwell on it and instead just made the most out of it. It’s seldom I get family to visit me here in Manila. 🙂

I had a well-spent weekend with my brother and friends.

Saturday = Bourne Legacy + California Pizza Kitchen + Mary Grace Cafe

Sunday = CCF Anniv + Intramuros + Rizal Park

Monday = Videoke +  R&J Bulalohan

I just love long weekends even if cab drivers hate it (coz they don’t earn much…awww)!

I wish we have 3 days of weekend. Haha!

Thank you Lord for still making the weekend turn out memorable! 🙂

Sunday

 

After the worship service at CCF, Nong Iman, Kim and I directly went to Podium Mall. Our schedule was to watch Step Up Revolution then dinner at Yakimix Eat All You Can Restaurant.

I’m a frustrated dancer (I must say). I love watching movies about dancing but I’ve never really danced. I’m not really sure I know how. But anyway, I’m a fan of Step Up movies and so I wouldn’t want to miss the new one. I must say, this is my so far favorite Step Up movie. The Mob themed movie really leveled up. My favorite mob dances were the ones at the art gallery and at the office building. Really cool! 😀

After the movie, we went to Yakimix for our dinner. I’ve been craving for Japanese rolls and Korean bbq. Yakimix was just the right place to satisfy those cravings. Jaja and Ebur joined us. We started at 5:30pm and went out from the place around 9pm. Haha!

 

 

I can’t wait to try another eat all you can place which they said is also good. Next time when my cravings will go back. For now, I need to finish my tea! 🙂

Full and happy Sunday. 🙂
