DIY Goddess Strikes Again.

I think having a limited budget is actually good! Haha I have been collecting bottles from work because I want to use them as vases for the tables during the reception.  I get to personalize them and save money. We bought some materials last week. Add that to the items that I already have at…

CCF’s Pre Marriage Counseling

We are having a Christian wedding in December.  This is mainly my “ask” because I grew up attending CCF.  I don’t know any other religion/church but this. One of the requirements for a CCF Pastor to officiate is to attend this series of classes.  It consists of 7 sessions focusing on different topics.  PMC is…

190 Days and Counting.

Here’s more vendors that we booked. The Band. This took a lot of discussion, going back and forth. And in the end, we decided to go with Infinite Soul. They are Tagaytay-based so we’re not being charged an out of town fee. Plus, this is the only band who had a package which included singing…

206 Days To Go.

About 6.5 months to go before our wedding.  Don proposed to me on Christmas Eve last year.  We started planning the wedding the start of the month.  We are very far from having everything done. The Budget. Don is shouldering the entire cost of the wedding.  I may have to ask my dad for pocket…

Different {Negative} Types of Co-Workers.

The King (or Queen). This co-worker has a higher rank than everyone else, so he feels compelled to act all all superior all the time. Even if he’s not good at his job. The Know-It-All. This co-worker may or may not be genuinely good at his work, but he pretends to know everything and is…

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande.

I’ve only seen this online and told Don I wanted one for Christmas/Birthday last year. Apparently, it will come out in April 2016 here in the Philippines. But guess what?! He was able to get me one early… Well, a Canadian client did, as a favor.  His client arrived here on Sunday and gave this…

Tonight is Healthy Night!

So tonight, I decided to prepare High Protein wrap for dinner. Had roasted sesame dressing on the side for more flavor. Unfortunately, I cannot share the recipe with you. 😬 But this is the only way I could make Don eat some vegetables! Sshhh… He doesn’t know I just tricked him! Haha It’s one of…

Cebu Day 4.

Don hired the same tour guide again for a Cebu-Mactan tour. We’ll be staying in Mactan for the rest of the trip, so it’s very timing. We checked out and left the hotel at around 8:30am. Although we couldn’t contact the place, we headed straight to Betty’s Botanical Garden in Cantipla. We were able to…

Resto-Rants #004

Cebu is famous for its lechon, a roasted suckling pig dish. A lechon is a traditional staple during birthdays or any special occasion and fiestas in the Philippines.  And now it’s made even commercialized that they only roast bonesless lechon belly  instead of the whole pig. With that said, we had to try it out! While…

Cebu Day 3.

For our third day, Don hired a tour guide. We agreed to leave at 4:30am to go Whale Watching in Oslob. And boy, that was so much fun! We paid Php 500.00 each for the whale shark snorkeling plus Php 100.00 entrance fee. All gears are included in the fee. There’s a brief orientation: do’s…

Cebu Day 2.

We woke up a little later than planned, so we decided to skip breakfast at Abaca Baking Company. Next on the list was going to JY Square Mall to buy tablea for my mom. Had to taste Tabléa‘s Sipping Dark Chocolate before I actually buy something. 🤓 It comes in a tiny cup, but hmmm……

Resto-rants #003.

I have not done this in a while, but I’ll give it a go. The sequence may be different from the ones I have done. Don gets his which-restaurant- to-eat-at via Zomato reviews. I, on the other hand, read blogs to get a full perspective. So he suggested Casa Verde in IT Park for lunch….
