Movie Date: Guardians of the Galaxy

Several weeks ago we (M, G and I) had a family movie date at Trinoma to watch Guardians of the Galaxy. G was very excited to watch the movie and I am so happy that he liked the movie a lot. It was the first time that he was able to sit still throughout the whole movie and he keeps on telling me what is going to happen next. 

How did he know what will happen next? 

He watched several trailers in youtube weeks before our movie date! So all throughout the movie, he would tell me what's happening and what's going to happen next -_-

After the movie, I window shopped a little then we played in Timezone to collect more tickets. After our short stint in Timezone, G wanted to eat at Cafe Breton. He has been craving for Cafe Breton's crepe for almost a month so I granted his wish already. I ordered our favorites, la pinay and butter & sugar. G was able to finish the la pinay in 5 minutes! I was not even able to taste the food that he ordered hahaha!

G then felt tired and full and wanted to go home right after eating :p

New Favorite Shift Dress

Greetings from the office!

Today is a holiday here in the Philippines and I am here at the office working while most of the people are having a vacation... this is what you call dedication and commitment hahahahaha!

I need to accomplish a lot today so let me just make this a quick outfit post. I just recently bought this shift dress at Zara during its last few days of sale. When I first saw this dress, it was not that attractive as it has no shape or design but since I like the color I decided to try it on. It was a good decision, the dress fits me well and hides all my fats :p It is very comfortable and easy to wear. This is the kind of dress that I would put on when I have nothing to wear or can't decide what to wear or when I feel fat. I also love how it matches my new favorite shoes, also from Zara.

Back to work for me now. 

Have a great holiday, enjoy the long weekend!

Tim Ho Wan Goodies!

My mom brought home some snacks from Tim Ho Wan. Everything was delicious! I loved the pork buns and the siomai. I am not a fan of siomai because I get dizzy whenever I eat one but Tim Ho Wan's siomai is so good that I was able to finish 3 pieces :p The rice topping was good too.





 It's not just hearsay, it is true that their food is good though not super affordable :p

I can say Tim Ho Wan lived up to its hype.

A few more days and it's a holiday! Vacation and long weekend for most of you guys but sad to say I am going to work on a holiday this week :(

I have a lot of things to do at work and I don't want to go to work on Monday (a holiday too). Anyway, I am looking forward to the Saturday and Sunday because G and I will be spending time again going to Fun Ranch, a birthday party and to the mall.


What's your plan this long weekend?

Minecraft Junkie

Minecraft is one of G's favorite game. He plays it on the iPad, PS3 and PS4. He watches the youtube videos of Stampy Longhead. Stampy is G's favorite Minecraft player.

I have caught G several times seriously playing the Minecraft game:




Seeing G so into the game reminds me of my childhood when I was playing Super Mario, Load Runner, Battle City, Galaga and Bomber Man using our Family Computer.

Ahh, those were the days.

Nowadays, I get dizzy whenever I watch G play Minecraft... I'm getting old!

Gotta Be Hip

Several typhoons have passed just for the month of July. I took that opportunity to wear my fall/winter clothes in the office :)

Here's one of my rainy day attire though I would probably still wear this even if it is not raining :D



Zara top
Zara jeans
Call It Spring boots
Forever 21 leather bracelet



How's your week so far? Since last week, I have been going to the office very early to avoid the super heavy traffic at EDSA during weekdays. But even if I leave the house very early there are already a lot of cars on the road and parts of EDSA are already traffic! EDSA traffic at 5:45 am! Only in the Philippines! I think there would come a time that I need to leave the house at 5 am just to avoid the traffic. I am wasting half of my life to nonsense traffic and it is all just because of the stupid public buses.

*inhale*
*exhale*

Ok, I need to relax and not be stressed out this early. It is just Tuesday and I still have a lot of things to finish at work. 

Have a great day ahead!

Hope I can have time to blog again tomorrow :)

Staycation at Edsa Shangri-La

A week after my Dad's simple birthday celebration at home, we all went to EDSA Shangri-La hotel to stay for the weekend.

We started the celebration by having lunch at Heat right after checking-in our rooms. G didn't want to eat lunch and wanted to go swimming as soon as we got to the hotel. The selection of food was not that abundant compared to Spiral but it was definitely better than Circles but I still prefer Marriott Cafe. They have several cuisines which consists of Chinese, Indian, Italian, Japanese and American. They also have a wide variety of sushis and sashimis and plenty of desserts. I didn't try all of the cuisine, I just got my usual favorites, steak, tempura and seafood plus lots of desserts. Oh, did I mention that they have a taho also? They have this small keg like container where you can get your taho, syrup and sago :)

After having our sumptuous lunch at Heat, we (G, M and I) changed into our swimming attire and went to the hotel poolside while my parents and brother went back to their rooms and slept.

The pool area of EDSA Shang is not that big but they have a nice kiddie play area for kids as well as a big slide for kids 12 years old and below. G had so much fun using the slide and the play area. He even made new friends while swimming and playing. After a while, G got hungry so he ordered a plate of french fries and mango shake from the pool bar. M saw G's mango shake and ordered one for himself too. When the bill came, I didn't check how much the fries and shake costs. I was thinking that it would be expensive but at a still reasonable expensive price. It was only when M's mango shake bill arrived that I was able to check the prices. My gulay! The mango shake was ridiculously expensive! The plate of french fries was expensive but reasonable (Php 210) but the mango shake was super expensive (Php 350). I mean, I am willing to pay them because G loved the food and was able to finish it but still the price of the mango shake was just too much. The 22% tax was not yet even included in the Php 350 price! I have already stayed in Sofitel, Makati Shang, Manila Hotel and other 5 star hotels and I don't recall them having that kind of price for a mango shake.Oh well, nothing I can do about it. At least G loved the food that he ordered.

After swimming for about 4 hours, we went back to our room to take a shower and dress up before going to Shangri-La mall. I love the new building of the mall where they house all of their luxury brands. Do you know that we now have a Givenchy, YSL, Alexander McQueen and several other luxury brands here in Manila? Yes, they are all in Shangri-La mall. The other stores are not yet open but Givenchy and YSL are already open. I love it!!!

Here are some pictures during our stay:
*I was not able to take a picture our our room because it got too messy right after G and M changed into their swimming clothes and I am lazy to fix their stuff :D

The next day, we all had our breakfast at Heat again. I love it! I love breakfast and Heat has a lot of choices of breads, juices, cheese, jams, etc. They still serve sushi and sashimi during breakfast. Of course they have the usual Filipino breakfast too. I can say that the breakfast selection at Heat can be at par to that of Spiral. I was not able to take pictures during breakfast because I was too busy thinking of what to eat first hahaha!

I will definitely go back to have breakfast at Heat since it is nearer my house than Spiral (but the breakfast at Spiral is still the best of them all!).

'Till my next food adventure.

Bonding Time

I love spending time with G!

A couple of weeks ago, we went to Trinoma with no agenda in mind. I just wanted to go to the mall to shop a little, eat and play in Timezone with him. I was also there to meet up some of my buyers and use the money to have fun and loads of tickets in Timezone :)


We went to the mall very early, a few minutes after it opened since I don't like spending too much time in traffic and looking for a parking space. Our first stop was Zara, the Zara sale was still on going so I was able to find a few pieces that I like that were super discounted already. Next stop, Promod. I wanted to buy a skirt, sandals and a top but decided not to buy them anymore since I had been buying from Zara since the sale started.

We then had our lunch at California Pizza Kitchen. G's wanted to eat one of his favorite food, carbonara, which he calls "white pasta". There were 3 of us (G, me and my mom) so we just ordered 3 small dishes that is good enough for all of us. We don't want to have any leftovers since nobody eats them at home. We had the spaghetti carbonara, mushroom ravioli and caesar salad. The servings were just enough for us to finish without any leftovers, yey!


Afterwhich, I met up with my buyers already and then used the money to play in Timezone. G had lots of fun playing and winning tickets. We were able to win more than 300 tickets which brings our total number of tickets to 3400+ :)

Our last stop was at the grocery. We just bought a few items at the supermarket before calling it a day and heading home.


Here are some pictures during that day:
