Cutesy and artistic wedding invite

I just got the most creative, artistic and cutesy wedding invite and i can't wait to share it here in my little hidden world (blog). 

Take a look at the package. Believe it or not the soon to be bride and groom made this from scratch! Resouceful and very innovative, right? 

I was really amazed in their ingenuity. Here are my other snapshots. 



I love everything they did on their invite! The invite made me feel so giddy and ecstatic for their wedding. Can't wait to witness their union and the party!!!!!

Perfect 10 Fridate


Amidst the very big challenge all of us are into now - the aftermath of the supertyphoon Yolanda (Haiyan as its international name), there was one event me and hubby was looking forward for months now - it's the 10th anniversary concert of Sarah Geronimo dubbed as "Perfect 10".

In celebration to our 13-year love and commitment (bf-gf anniv), we both decided to watched her concert. Here are photos of our "Perfect 10 Fridate". 


We took our time dining in Cibo as we know concerts really do not start on time, true indeed, it started past 9 already. 

And here's what we saw inside the Araneta.... 
This is from where we were seated. It is jampacked! Well, no doubt because when we bought our tickets it was just less than a week when they opened the ticket selling but all Patron A were sold out and ours were the only seats available near! Yes, i was surprised as Sarah really has a huge fan base and the sold out tickets validated it. Wow! 

Here are the snippets of her concert....

L-R: Mark B., Sarah G., Rachelle Ann Go, and Christian B. - Sarah called them as her true friends in the industry. 

This was i think before she sang Creep which was really a breathtaking performance! I salute her for that as she exceeded my expectations. Funny thing is, Sarah said to love her still even if she will not hit the notes but she managed to pull it off and nailed it! Bravo! 

This Regine-Sarah-Lea production was really awesome! They really deserve the standing ovation. And you know what has surprised me, i was in awe of Sarah as she has brought out her outstanding vocal prowess, she was really great, just great!


This was her last performance among the many songs she sang, her finale was a dance production and ended it with an upbeat song!

To top it all, proceeds of her concert were donated to the Typhoon Yolanda victims. Kudos to this young lady with a big heart (no wonder a lot of people love her) and the whole production team for their generosity and for the wonderful show! 👏👏👏 

Among the many things why people love her is because Sarah Geronimo is just like an ordinary girl embracing her imperfections yet her humility, goodness and her heart makes her extraordinary. 

I ended my so-called "Perfect 10 Fridate" with a smile and overflowing positivity. 

Ciao!

What's inside your kikay kit?

Every girl has their own everyday kit, some call it make-up kit, others call it kikay kit or vanity kit. All are synonymous with each other but i opt to call mine as kikay kit! 

Want to take a peek what's inside my kikay kit now? 

I love my green kit! Well, i am so into colored green things this past year especially apple colored green. 

Wait, let me show you what's inside.... 

These are the things i carry with me. Not too fancy but very essential to me. 

Alcohol and hand lotion. I cannot leave the house without these two. I have this certain fetish on hand creams. My current fave now is crabtree & evelyn's pomegranate hand therapy. The smell is good not the best for me though! And I definitely invest on them (hand creams) hahahaha!!! (Invest is the word!)

My Hua Mulan goat horn comb which is the best comb ever for me! My nature republic's oil blotting paper and my morrocan argan oil for my hair (this i would not recommend though, maybe the one i got is not the best of its kind, just do not have a choice because i need to consume it).

My shu uemura eyelash curler (this is really the best and my most ever reliable partner for so long now, it perfectly and comfortably suits my eyelid and curls like magic), fairy drops mascara, burt's bees champagne lip shimmer, lancome l'absolu rouge lipstick (my go go lippie) and my all-time favorite lipstick brand - smashbox! Smashbox was the only lippie so far i used up until it ran out of me. Actually, am not a make-up person type of girl but i try real hard to look my best everyday! Who doesn't anyway? Hahahaha!!! What i meant was i own pieces of basic make-up, i preferred a no make-up make-up look rather than the one who is obviously well done. In short, i just want a natural look, i enhance what i think is my best feature. 

Yup, i have all these in my kikay kit! Clips, elastic bands, safety pins, dental floss and even cotton buds! Hahahaha!!! Funny isn't it? 

Well, there you go, i carry all these things with me everyday! but if i could choose 2items to bring, definitely, the hand cream and alcohol will be on my list. In short,  i just cannot live without lotion! I cannot even sleep without even putting it on. Hahahaha!!! I am one weird girl, not even the most kikay girl will agree that i pass on being called a kikay even my kit, this will surely not pass on as their kikay kit. But who cares, this is mine and i love every single thing in my so-called kikay kit! Hehehehe.... 

How about you girls? Show me what's inside your everyday kit - make-up kit, kikay kit or vanity kit or whatever you call it. 

Ciao!

Corazon with Mi Amour

I love saturdays. Why? Hmmmm..... Aside from it is a weekend, it is a day i look forward to, to breathe out from the stress and from all the hurdles of the work week and the everyday rollercoaster ride. And saturday is a day i get to spend quality time with the husband. Yes, we always spend time together but Saturday quality time means just "us doing something we love and like". Cheesy as it sounds but the husband and i make it a point to just spend time together and we call it "pangga (our term of endearment) time".One of the things we do on a Saturday is trying out some fancy restaurant which spells ..... "FOOD TRIP". Hahahaha!!!! Yeah, i know, i swear how i try real hard to lose the unnecessary pounds on me but who can't resist if food are served with all these very tempting presentation not to mention the cozy ambience! Hmmmm, yup! Am guilty as charged. Hahahahahaha!!!! Thus, i came to label Saturday as my cheatday! Hahahaha!!! 

Let me share with you one of our recent Saturdate and perhaps my kind of food review. Promise, i will be as honest as i can, and just a note this is just my personal opinion. Everybody has different tastes so just don't take it as it is, better try it yourself so you will know.

So here goes my story...... Last saturday was really a hectic one for me at work, the husband has his own fair share of his own thing at work too and some personal errands. Both hungry as a beast, we just cannot make up our mind where to feast. 

We were walking around the new wing of Shangrila Plaza and there was this restaurant that caught our attention - Corazon by Chef Florabel, it is a restaurant offering Filipino Hispano cuisine. 


We both decided to just try it judging by the ambience and the number of people dining in (yes, at times we judged it by the number of people dining in, more people means something, right?, admit it, we are not alone on this! Hehehe). 

So we came up with these orders: 


Paella Mariscos - it is basically paella with seafood, shrimps, oysters, squid, fish fillet and egg. I swear this is the best paella i have ever tasted! Hahahaha!!! Seriously, it sure is mouthwatering and not too tangy which is good i would say. 

We then opted to match this with something like this. 


They call this Campeador. Their version of crispy pork binagoongan. We were surprised because it was a perfect match on the paella (we are still on the process of mastering the art of ordering that's why so proud that we nailed it). The pork is soft and crunchy on the outside, the bagoong has the mixture of salty, sweet and spicy taste and the eggplant made it a perfect combination. 

A big BURP and 2 thumbs up were all we can say! We were amazed that we both cleaned the plates! Hahahaha!!! We were indeed hungry and super enjoyed our meal. 

Of course, the meal will not be complete without the (our favorite part of the meal, hehehe... We are a certified sweet tooth couple...i was the one who influenced the husband to sweets... Hehehehe..) ---- DESSERT! 

Below is a closer look.... 

This is the suman latik with the batangas chocolate. Promise, this is the BEST! The suman was well made and not dry and the chocolate was just so perfect, right sweet with a little bitter taste which complemented the whole taste. And the remaining chocolate, we even licked it up to the last drop! Hahahaha!!! 

So we ended our lunch feast with an ear to ear smile with overflowing satisfaction. It is a bit pricey but it was all worth it and i can say reasonable enough. We will definitely be coming back and will try their other dishes next time! 

Ciao!

A boy named Chase

This year by far is an exciting one for me. One of the many great blessings I got is a boy named Chase.  

This cute little boy makes me feel giddy and joyful all the time.  

 
Who will not adore him, even in his sleeping form he is just so endearing. 

 
I just can't seem to get enough of him that even my phone, he is the focal point.  
This guy makes me want to wish for a time machine because the downside of it is we were not yet introduced up close and personal. And i just can't wait to meet him! He is getting more handsome everyday.  And yes, he never fail to amaze me. He is such a breather from all the toxic and cynical aspects of life. 

 
This boy named Chase is my nephew, an angel and i love him very much.  He makes me realize that God sent him to prepare me for my very own angel. 🙏

Happy feet

These are my happy feet.
I love them both. I have been to so many places because of these.
 Others find it cute and well-shaped especially my husband who admitted to be attracted to me because of my happy feet! (Weird! At asset ko daw) hahahaha!!!!
 People close to me know how obsessed I am and how well I take care of them.

I dress them up with comfy pairs though at times I feel guilty for trying some pairs that hated them most.
But at the end of the day, I never fail to reward them with a minty fresh bath and a goodnight’s rest.
