the skirt's first and last hurrah for 2011


Yes! my outfit for Bubba Gump is in a separate post. (Maarte lang talaga ako.haha.) 
This is what I wore when we ate at Bubba Gump. Lo and behold, this is my first time to wear a long skirt since high school. I have been told that wearing long skirt in not for me since I'm not skinny and tall and all that.And I believed them. Since then, I avoid the skirt section whenever I go thrifting. But when I came across this skirt in a thrift store, I just can't resist buying it. I love the color and the breezy flowy feel(yung ganung effect).  Whether it's bagay to me or not, I don't care basta ba I feel so comfortable in it. I can wear it to sleep without a blanket on.Ganyan sya ka comfy.haha. It's good thing that I'm experimenting on clothes now. A big Thank You to all lovely and fashionable bloggers for inspiration. I think I'll try maxi dresses naman next year!ha ha! ambisyosa much.

Happy New Year!!!

Bubba Gump



I've been wanting to eat at Bubba Gump. I read good reviews about it. And finally last Monday, my friends and I dined in here. This cozy restaurant is inspired by the movie Forrest Gump hence, the interior. As you browse through my photos you will notice that some of the furniture and decorations are stirred up from the movie. Lots of memorabilia. The foods are amazingly pleasant-tasting but a bit pricey. They have these cute signboards that are used in calling the waiter's attention.

This blue license plate tells the waiters to just keep doing what they're doing

and just flip it to 'Stop Forrest Stop' when you are requesting the waiter's attention. Cute eh?!

Shrimper's Heaven. It has 4 variations. We have the coconut shrimp, chilly shrimp, fried shrimp and japanese style tempura shrimp with fries.

Christmas Dinner Date

Hello blogosphere! How are you? I missed you.
It's really been a long time since I updated this blog. I was not that busy at all I was just too lazy to blog. Bad Cheetah! Then I realized I have only one entry for December though a lot of things have happened. I should have documented them in my blog. Anyways, before Jonathan flew back home, we had christmas dinner date first at Conti's in Greenbelt.(And yes I wasn't able to go home for christmas because work didn't allow me.) We enjoyed dining there. We want to go back and try other food and dishes.

10 Lessons in Life

1. Always have integrity with yourself and others. Be your word. Do what you say you will – and own up       when you don’t.
2. Live with an attitude of gratitude to bring so much more goodness back into your life. We live in a truly abundant world – there is more than enough for all of us.
3. Your life counts and it is up to you to make it count. This life is not a rehearsal – so make the most of it.
4. People are so amazing and never cease to surprise with their capacity for goodness – always give them the benefit of the doubt and know that they are doing the best they can.
5. There is so much beauty all around us it takes your breathe away. You just have to see things through new eyes.
6. The most fulfilling life is one of service and contribution – give, give and give to receive.
7. Take total self care – this body is for life and the only one we will have.
8. Always be optimistic and adopt a positive attitude – things are never as bad as they may seem.
9. Learn to forgive and let go – this is the key for making all relationships loving.
10. Be childlike in your approach to life. Live with joy – laugh a lot, be light hearted and happy.

YakiMix

I've been to a number eat-all-you-can restaurants and I must say Yakimix is the best so far. Yesterday, Jonathan and I celebrated our 4th year anniversary. And since we both love food(ebidensya ang katawan), we decided to celebrate it in a little fancy restaurant.(Gusto ko sana sa Paris but wala kami moolah, so sa Makati na lng.hahaha.)We were searching for a good one via munchpunch.com. Munchpunch.com is like a database of reviews, menus, promos and list of restaurants in Philippines. You might wanna check it for reference.  Anyways, we read good reviews about Yakimix so we decided to try it ourselves. Jonathan made a phone call few days before the dinner to make a reservation but staff said there's no need for reservation any longer, we just have to come early on Friday. Come Friday. Jonathan arrived at Greenbelt earlier than me 'coz my workday ends at 6 o'clock. He came 5:30 only to find out that all tables are occupied and we are 7th on the list of waiting customers. We patiently waited and finally at 7:30, we were ushered to our table. I'm glad we acquired the best spot. Worth the wait,indeed!

Hungry and excited, we happily filled our plates with different types of sushi, sashimi and other Japanese food. Jonathan grilled raw fish, barbecue and some sea food. It's the grilling part that he's in to.
The food in buffet area consists of Japanese, Cantonese and Korean dishes. They also serve some Filipino food like Lechon Kawali, stuffed amapalaya, mushrooms, kangkong something and more.

After the heavy and main dishes, we headed back to buffet area to grab some desserts.
There is a wide selection of cakes, cookies and pastries.

And this Leche Flan is so delicious. I haven't eaten leche flan for a long time. wow.

and of course scoops of ice cream to end our meal.

We went home happy and satisfied. We strongly recommend Yakimix. Food is delicious. Ambience is good and the service is surprisingly great.

my best friend's birthday

My best friend celebrated her birthday with us last Friday. Her name is Irish and I haven't introduced her yet in my blog. We've known each other since Grade 1. We've been best friends since Grade 3, I think. She has a very nice personality. She excels in everything she does. She knew all my problems and struggles in life. We were so close like sisters back then. But now, we don't hang out like we used to anymore. We're both busy with our work. I have a lot of things to tell her pa but we have limited time. I miss her. I miss the OLD US. We'll, so much for the drama. I'm still glad she chose to celebrate her birthday with our barkada. I'm happy that we made her happy on her special day. Happy Birthday Irish. I love yah!

These are some of the photos of my last day in Palawan that I forgot to upload.
I can still vividly remember everything we did in Puerto Princesa. I would  love to be there again. A place so peaceful and clean.

durian

Good morning!
Ako'y ngbabalik from my Davao trip. Masaya na nakakapagod. With my 4 days na stay sa Davao, kulang pa rin ang oras para mamasyal. Pero hindi ko pinalampas ang durian session with my friends, Audrey and Nicole. For so long, ngcrave ako sa prutas na ito. Mahal to sa Manila. 200+/kilo. WTF! Eh 50 pesos lang to Mindanao. It smells like hell but tastes like heaven, sabi nila. But for me, it smells and tastes like heaven.period.nyehehe. I actually gained 2 kilos in Davao. But that's ok as long as I satisfied my craving for durian. Solve na.
