Made It Myself: Handmade Stationery

Last weekend, I spent a rainy Saturday afternoon at a cozy cafe with some fellow crafty people making cards and envelopes with my brand new Martha Stewart punchers. My friend Mikko has the biggest collection of craft punchers. I’m not even kidding. So when she opened up a craft huddle that came bundled with a free puncher, I didn’t even…

Crafty Birthday

I was so thrilled to be invited to Alessa‘s birthday lunch this afternoon. Saw familiar faces from the first craft soiree and friends I haven’t seen in a long time. It was great to catch up over yummy burgers (I put bacon, caramelized onions, garlic cream cheese, lettuce, and barbecue sauce in mine!) and crafts. We all had to design…

A Good Day For Eating

Spent my Saturday in good company, both in terms of food and friends. Headed to the Rockwell Tent for Yummy Eats (after last year, how could we not go?) The venue this year was much smaller than last year’s so it was a bit hard to get around. But that definitely didn’t stop us from sampling all the Yummy Eats…

Let’s Get Crafty

Whenever I go shopping, I have this habit of saying, “Kaya natin gawin yan” when I see an item that looks nice, but is ridiculously overpriced. For example, I’m not going to spend a thousand hard-earned pesos on a bracelet that I can make from the handles of an old paper bag. My friends already tease me with #shitdiygirlssay whenever…

Weekend Report

This week has been pretty toxic. I’ve been sick all week, but I’ve been trying to mask it by taking medicine, which I usually don’t do. I like to just let the fever, cold, cough, etc run its course rather than take chemicals into my body. BUT getting sick isn’t really an option these days. Too many things to do,…

Weekend Wind Down

January has been on full speed so far and I’m glad I have today to kind of take it easy. I made Red Velvet cupcakes this morning, an order for a friend celebrating a belated Chinese New Year. Letters to Juliet is on cable right now and I’m enjoying some well-deserved me time before heading out to fulfill my maid…

We’re in Korea!

Last Saturday, we headed to the mall for our Candy Cuties mini-mag cover signing. Stephie had a brilliant idea of walking to Subspace Coffee after. I’ve never been there, but Steph loved it and I was intrigued by the Purple Potato Latte and the Peanut Butter Latte. I’ve never been to Korea, but I’m guessing this is about the closest…

Rapunzel, Rapunzel, Let Down Your Hair

I was supposed to meet up with my friends this morning to go on a trip to Divisoria, but Jenn got a migraine last night so we had to cancel. So I asked the rest of my barkada if they were still up to watching Babae sa Septic Tank today. There were also plans of Kinect and lazing around with…

Bottomless Pits: A Day of Endless Eating

I’m not a very fit person. I like to eat and I will eat anything and everything if I want to. I exercise only so I have an excuse to indulge in all my favorite food. That said, I don’t think I can ever go on a diet. O: So when my friends Koko, Mimi, and Stephie said they were…

May 8th

Today we celebrate my dad’s 57th birthday. My mom would’ve been 58. My dad asked me to invite his brothers and sister to lunch today a couple of days ago. But with the fight and my cousin’s badminton tournament going on, we ended up celebrating tonight for dinner. I love it when family comes over. We eat simple, good food….
