I had the chance to use Mama’s laptop this afternoon and I browsed through her folders full of pictures of the family. Then I came across a folder labeled “Gwen”. Inside were pictures during my Cebu trip, Graduation (both high school and college), summer adventures and a whole lot more. And then…
A VALENTINE’S DAY POST (Part 3): Hungover
Today, Page and I planned to meet and eat our lonely hearts out at the Fruh Cafe (a new cozy place owned by the family of one of her best buds), since she wasn’t able to go out on valentine’s day (she PROBABLY just ate and drank her way through february 14….HAHAHAHAHAHA, i’m kidding geng! love you!). And for this pig-out session, the fabulous Madam Jason also came with us XD
(no, i’m not disappointed with the place..promise. excuse my face, haha)
our yummy food!!! (clockwise from left: pasta aglio de olio, mango roll, mango milkshake, strawberry milkshake, and another mango roll haha).
for Page: Ham and sausage crepes :)))
and for me! Banana Hazelnut Crepe :3
they even have this cute photobooth corner (where Page “almost” ruined some of the props hahahahaha peace geng!). Anyway, we were really satisfied with this pig-out session and we will definitely come back! But for now, we have to take a walk (instead of riding the jeepney) because our bellies are just too full! :D

A VALENTINE’S DAY POST (Part 2): It was a Date
And so February 14 rolled in with the usual kaboom of ladies clutching violently red and pink bouquets, couples piling up in restaurants, love songs hanging in the air, heart-shaped balloons, and all that. The “barkada date” with my friends got cancelled due to our star-crossed schedules but fortunately, me and Gwennybelle got an invite from Chamster-hamster, treating us to a “Love Date for a Cause” in Villa Sabarre. The event was hosted by Chami’s church for the benefit of their Children’s Ministry and Chami will also be singing so we agreed to go, in a heartbeat! :-)
And since Gwen and I still haven’t gotten over our “artsy” frustration…
It was a wonderful event. The place was exquisite, there’s good food and wine, and the serenade from talented singers (Chami included…*proud best friend here*) and musicians was the bomb! We we’re also blessed to hear words of wisdom about love and relationship from their pastors and witness sweet surprises among guest couples. <3
Eeeeeeeeeeeee i’m just so happy to have these two beautiful “dates” to spend my valentine’s day with <3 <3 <3

A VALENTINE’S DAY POST (Part 1): The Things You Do Out of Boredom
For a single-since-forever girl like me, valentine’s day has never been of a great deal and nothing but an overrated occasion taken advantage upon by business establishments (I do sound bitter but just sayin’). Ironically, I’m about to write a three-part blog entry about (yes, darn it) my valentine’s day this year. So here it goes…(i may have to slap my hypocritical face after this, haha).
The whole barkada wanted to go on a group date for valentine’s day and so I was just excited and have been looking forward to it ever since the idea was hatched (though i was never sure whether i’ll be available at the the appointed time -_-). But today’s just like any other day and i got so bored, a crazy idea went inside my head: i decided to prepare little candy packs to give away to my loved ones on valentines day! HAHAHA even now i still get a toe-curling feeling of embarrassment whenever i think about this…but, what’s done is done. Haha. (sorry for the low-quality pics, they’re all taken with my nearly dying phone T_T)
WARNING: the following photos may not be suitable for those who can’t tolerate extreme mushiness, corny-ness, cheesy-ness.
"our friendship is MINT to be" mini cards with 2 mint candies
butterfly lollies with handwritten verses from the bible about God’s love <3
"can CHEW be my valentine?" gum balls (HAHAHAHAHA)
I made like a bunch of these but as soon as i was done working, i started to feel embarrassed and have second thoughts on actually giving them away, hahaha. Why did i have to make these in the first place???
P.S. I did give them away the next day…to my parents, siblings, and to a few friends i’ve met and their reaction was just
Credits to those smart, creative, and cheesy people in the world wide web for this idea :)
(The title’s scary but I promise you this post is nowhere near scary HAHA)
January ended with a BANG, while February started with a BOOM! I spent these two days with my W34k Family and I’m just beyond blessed to have them. Then I realized what February meant, or as I would like to call it:…
"Most of our childhood is stored not in photos, but in certain biscuits, lights of day, smells, textures of carpet."
