Lily the Zebra

Early this month, Mia had homework for school.  Unfortunately, I am one of those anal homework mothers- good for my daughter, bad for me.  The exercise was that she took home a "mascot" or class "pet" and basically she just had to take pictures of the activities that she did that weekend and compile it in the scrapbook where the rest of her classmates posted their own pictures with Lily.

Happy Birthday Rustie!

Hey Rustie,

Happy Birthday!  Finally, a post with your pictures.  Due to your insistent demand.

April 2010

Thanks for making work life more bearable, livelier and something to look forward to each day.

September 2011

Here's to being 29.  Here's to our growing friendship (more on your part, see picture.).  Here's to a sexier new you!

Looking forward to more memories with you.

UCC Park Cafe Express

Remember my craving for ramen that was an epic fail because it was never satisfied?


Last Saturday, Mia and I had a lunch date in UCC Park Cafe Express to check out their ramen.  This branch is supposedly the only UCC branch that had ramen.  For the first time I was happy that the weather was gloomy.  Nothing beats yummy soup on a rainy day!  I was excited.  Haha, ramen dork!

Another Family Adventure

I'm excited!  The last time we were here was in 2009.

I hope the weather cooperates!  No typhoons, please.

Sock Bun

I am so glad my daughter did not inherit my hair.

Why mom are you showing this to the world?

Chateau Hestia

After our massage, Karl and I decided to take my parents to Chateau Hestia.  We stumbled on this restaurant when we ate in Bawai’s with Karl’s cousins and decided to walk around the area when we got too full.

Taken last May: If Senator Guingona had his birthday here(Says so in their chalkboard), it must be good!

Nurture Spa

I won gift certificates from work.  Who doesn’t like gift certificates?  Who doesn’t like redeeming gift certificates?  Throw them over this way please!

Yumyum Abs

I have a gut.

It’s not funny and probably next to my hair, is the most annoying part of my body.

Craft Pub and Grill

What happened that night- in a nutshell
One of my good friends from college visited Manila for a 2 week vacation.  We decided to party hard whatever that means.  We decided to have dinner in Craft Pub and Grill and proceed to Amber afterwards.

Craft Pub and Grill is located in Unit E- The Fort Strip.  It’s the same place where Prince of Jaipur, Embassy and Cuisine were located before (Uy! Signs of aging, wala na sila).  I got there an hour early so I had time to pretend I was not a loser.  Good thing Craft had free wifi BUT I didn’t understand why the waitress had to type the password.  Do they really not share their password or was the password so complicated she had to type it herself?

Yoga date night is back!

I tricked someone in agreeing to buy this Deal Dozen coupon. 

Keep you posted on how it goes!  I've done Bikram with him before.  Since he is innately competitive and barat, I am guaranteed to have fun yoga classes with him.

Other things to do in Bagac, Bataan

Mt. Samat

When you spend for gas and toll to get to Bataan, you try to maximize and do whatever you can there. When Karl and I were still dating, I bought him the Lonely Planet Philippines version book.  I figured, since we would travel alot together, might as well get that book as a handy resource- good investment for people like us.

We had a visitor this weekend

Lily at Colin's party
I haven't gone nuts.  This is Mia's visitor from school.  I will tell you all about it this week.  Hopefully... Sorry I have been backlogged, been busy the past few days! Or lazy...

Las Casas Filipinas de Azucar Part I

The first time I heard about this place was from my husband.  When he told me about this, the first thing that came into my mind was, mumu.  I shrugged it off and told him we weren't going there.
This way... That way...

What a day!

We had an out of town trip today.  The funny thing is, with all that Mia saw today, this was what was most memorable.

A Rainbow!
The best things in life are free.  Funny how a kid should be the one to remind you of that perspective.

Get ready for a photo heavy post tomorrow!

How old are you again?

Looks easier than it looks
My husband came home with me in this pose. With uglier clothes, less seductive bordering on suffering look.

I just remembered this billboard and I was wondering if I could do it.  I figured I did yoga, I should be able to do this.  Yes, this is one of those moments that just because I do Bikram, I feel like I'm all powerful.

I can do it, maybe with a little less grace and with a painful look on my face.

Come on! Try it at home, better done alone so noone has to laugh at you.

Yes, I will not post my picture in this pose.  Although I did find someone through Google and posed with almost the same outfit.  Ridiculous.
