Dinner At Uno

Saturday, October 30, 2004

Went out with my sis-in-law Jane and her husband Rommel and their balikbayan friend Marlon. We ate at Uno...as usual their food is great! I had seabass...didn't think of having a food shot of it as i was very hungry, as it was my first decent meal of the day...


After dinner, we decided to go to Virgin Cafe...oh man, it was very disappointing...we were the only ones there...but on the other hand, we got to enjoy the performers all to ourselves...

The Wedding

Tuesday, October 26, 2004

Yes, the wedding is finally over...and i was able to fit in my gown...but sshhhh, i needed to wear a girdle so my bulges won't show *winks*...anyways, it was a very beautiful wedding...couldn't help but cry watching the bride walk down the aisle...i really do not know the reason for crying...but everytime i see a bride walk down the aisle, tears start falling (whether i know the bride or not)





Everything was so organized...from the ceremony down to the reception...sharing you some of the photos



My turn to walk down the aisle...not a bride, but a "godmother"...geez, Am I getting old?




The Godmothers with Bona and Mike




A very touching moment...





The Bride and the Groom (Bona and Mike)
































My bouquet...so lovely

And moi...make-up by Ceasar of Bambi Fuentes






With one of my college best friends, Angie (sister of the bride)






I had two functions that day...wedding and debut...so after the wedding, rushed home to change...

Young As He Is

Friday, October 22, 2004

I usually get to talk to my kids during dinner time...you know the usual how's school...what score did you get in your seatworks and quizzes...stuffs like that...and they get to tell me stories...and sometimes report on each other's activities...


my daughter has been friends with this kid since they were in 2nd grade...they got really close...they'd spend summer in each other's home...until 5th grade...my daughter now has a different set of friends, and she seems to be enjoying their company (lucky me, i know all of her friends)...little by little she and the kid drifted apart...my daughter says its not her fault...she can't seem to talk with this kid anymore and worst they seldom see each other (although their classroom is adjacent to each other)...and whenever they see each other, it's not the usual anymore...they tend to put meaning (negative) to each and every word uttered (maybe without them intending to)...anyways, my daughter told me about their recent encounter...i thought my boy wasn't listening to our usual girl talk...when all of a sudden these words came out of his mouth..."HEY ATCH (atchi meaning Ate/older sister) LIFE CHANGES AS WE GROW OLDER, YOU KNOW!!!" Amused, Nelson and I looked at each other...maybe because we didn't expect those words coming from an 8 year old kid...

BeeHive

Thursday, October 21, 2004




Now i know how i'd look like with a beehive hairdo...haha...kidding aside, i just bought that heating cap just today...i decided to do my own hair treatments (cellophane and hot oil)...a lot of savings huh...and i could do it as often as i want to, without hurting my pocket...wise decision huh...initial investment is not much though compared to having hair treatments at hair salons...


today i did cellophane with color...i combined two colors (brown and magenta)...i loved the result...

Beauty Tip

Sunday, October 17, 2004

I'm not blessed with long and curly eyelashes...so i resort to curlash and mascara...since Maybelline's Dial-a-Lash has been phased out...i haven't paid much attention to my eyelashes...until i realized that i look better with mascara on...my cousin and my neice gifted me with a curlash and mascara (Mac) last year but have not used it, coz whenever i apply mascara, it weighs down and my eyes feel heavy...i scouted for a better mascara and ended up buying this...thinking that it would solve my problem....





Shiseido still didn't solve my problem...until the other day...i did the usual curling, and this time i thought of removing excess mascara from the stick and let it dry a bit for a few seconds...and voila, it worked...and it was then that i remembered that i usually put the dial-a-lash to number 1 as the dial controls how much mascara you want to put on...darn it! i should have discovered it 2 years ago...could have saved money...now i could do beautiful eyes *winks*

Friend???

Thursday, October 14, 2004

Oh my gosh!!! I can't stand her any longer...i've been putting up with her for the past years now...the reason? it's just plain pity...she doesn't have friends, or should i say she has "square" friends... i've accepted her as "square" as she is, and little by little introduced her to the "world" of being hip and cool. I can now say that she has completely transformed (i'm glad)

But the thing is, i can't put up with her now...she lives a life full of lies...she pretends to be what she is not...I really do not know why she has resort to those kinds of things when in fact i've accepted her, her flaws included.

Now she is trying to catch up with me...she even finds me a competetion, which i am not, and that pisses me off. She pretends to know everything...Example: when i tell her some things, she tells me right away that she has heard of it a couple of weeks ago...how can that be when sometimes the things i tell her happened only yesterday...Now you know what I mean. And worst of all, she has a ready answer to all her lies, fabricating stories included...she is really sooooo used to it...

I just hope one day, i can find the right time to correct her...or SHOULD I???

Bonsai

Went out with a few friends and had dinner at CIBO...as i still feel a little stressed (shucks, what a lame excuse for eating)...


anyways, i had this...it was like eating bonsai because of how it was presented...but it's really yummy...Insalata di Mari





and i had one of my favorites too...spinach dip




it's really fun going out with friends once in a while (or is it really once in a while?) but the thing is, we always eat...and this is common in all of us...we couldn't get ourselves to go to the gym regularly...hmmm

Eight to Six

Wednesday, October 13, 2004

When will i get used to the idea of working from 8 in the morning til 6 in the evening? Oh man, i really don't know when...(will i ever be?) For 9 years now, since i resigned from the bank, i have owned my time...and it's pretty hard to adjust now, especially with my sleeping habits...i easily get cranky...blame it on stress...as i am super stressed now, what with all the stuffs that i'm supposed to do...


anyways, i thought of having this to ease up my stress :-) and it did work...haha





foodie...as if im not supposed to watch over what i eat...oct 23 is already near, and i still don't have enough guts to fit my gown...well, well, well...

Good Housekeeping Feature

Monday, October 11, 2004

My daughter was reading an old Good Housekeeping Magazine when suddenly she came to me very excited..."Hey Mom, look at us!" True indeed, they were among the models of the raincoats that were featured in the magazine...July 2000 issue...


Patricia was 6 at that time...she's the one wearing the red/blue raincoat...





Josh was 4 at the time of the shoot...










And now, i was asking them if they would do the same thing...pose for a magazine...and guess what?...their answer is a big NO...they say that they are now too shy to do it, and too embarrassed...what if their classmates would tease them...

Gimme Time

I know!...i know, i haven't been posting lately...blame it on my schedule...as i myself is not used to it yet...yet...i dunno if i'll ever be...for many years now, i usually sleep around 2 in the morning and wake up around 9 in the morning...beat that! but for 8 days now, i have to hit the sack before 11 pm or the latest should be at 12...and i find it hard...really hard...but i have to, coz i need to report to work at 8 am...and instead of surfing in the evenings, i now do it in the mornings...and i can't seem to think that early, still sleepy you know...but i hope i can adjust to it...pretty soon?
