OOTD: White and Silver in Summer Sweet Treats

Standard

It’s May already! Time flies so fast, next thing we know we are closing the year. But before closing the year, may I ask, “Have you spent time with your treasured friends?”

As for me,( you been reading it) since it’s my vacation, I maximize the time I have to do the things I want and be with the people I love, my family, friends and myself.

In this post, I will tell you about someone who has been with me since my grade school years, someone who never left my side despite of my tantrums and someone to whom I share my greatest problems, triumphs, apprehensions, dreams, disappointments and happiness- my bestfriend. We’re actually equally opposite but I know that I can tell her anything without any reservation. Time tested our relationship already. We cried together for lost love, dream despite of limitations and pursuing life knowing we are still together side by side. We need not to be with each other nor talk everyday. We’re just secured with the fact that we are true and honest with each other despite of different circle of friends that we have.

Anyway, her name is Eunice and just before April ends we finally had our bonding! Super thanks to Starbucks Philippines! LOL!  Because of their buy 1 take 1 treat for Caramel Ribbon Crunch, me and le bestfriend rushed to Resorts World Manila (RW) and had that ever-desired time of our lives (especially MY LIFE, since she treated me... see how opportunistic I am? LOL)

We’re lucky enough to reach the line since we went out past 4pm already and the promo is until 5pm only. Good thing RW is just two streets away from my home and 3 streets away from hers. We just took a tricycle so we can less the chances that we will be late. 🙂 When we reached the counter the Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frap was already sold out, but good thing they have an alternative deal… and that is to buy any frappucinno beverage and take 1 free! Yey!

To cut it short, we had our drinks! Yipee!

To make our bonding a little longer we decided to dine in at Mcdonald’ s and again it was her treat. I insist to pay my bills but she refused! She was a ever kind and lovely bestfriend. Isn’t she? LOL! But kidding aside, that’s absolutely true!

This is my bestfriend Eunice.

and this is... ME! Sorry! We don't have our monopad yet :)

The theme of RW’s activity hall that time is all about sweet treats. And I just can’t go home without my photos taken in that adorable spot! There were stalls of cupcakes, French macaroons, ice creams, cake and a lot more. Nevertheless, with my white and silver outfit, my bestfriend just knows exactly what I want- to have my photos taken on that colorful and delicious-looking themed stage. Yey!

 

So here was my photos:

In this look:

silver shiny shorts- Rvmped ByNikkimanas

zebra print loafers- Sole Mate

Just to be fair, I also took a photo of her and as I mentioned, as contrast with me, she doesn’t really want to have as many photos as I would want to have and that means one is enough.

So that was our bonding. We actually talk much of anything, whether it is in past, future or present. And you know why I made a post talking about my dearest bestfriend? It is because today (when this post will be published- May 5) is her birthday! Yey! Happy Birthday Eunice! Wish you everything that your heart desires! I’m always here for you for this one more year and beyond. I love you so much! God Bless!

Blog Bitz Week 1 (Launching)

Standard

I wish it is holidays. I been so stuck up at work that I cannot do the things that I want, like blogging. Yet even though, how stuck I am, I always try to make it up to you sweeties by posting at least 3 blog entries during weekends. But yes, I still feel guilty about it since there are some of my readers who wants more on my blog. I feel overwhelmed and challenged with their demands. With that, my desire to have a regular weekly post sprouted. I will call it Blog Bitz.

This post every weekend will give you random things that I find inspiring, unique, overwhelming or maybe just nothing. It actually aims to share snap moments that happen to me during the week, I would just want to go a little bit more close and personal to you my beloved sweeties.

This week is my trial week for it so please, please, please don’t hesitate to post your feedback about this mini-segment of mine and we will see from there…

What I got this week? Here we go…

Sunday: My Cure, A Nebulizer

My nebulizer machine.

My nebulizer machine.

One unique thing about me, is that I don’t drink medicines especially tablets and capsules. I usually settle on an alternative medicine or just let everything be fixed on its own natural way. But last week, I hardly can’t speak, no voice is coming out from my mouth and worst, I need to teach the whole week. So when the weekend finally arrived, my mom told me to use this nebulizer to ease the burden of my sore throat and her speculation, my soon to be “colds”. I gave it a try and it was such relief! Still, mothers know best!

Monday: Pile of Papers to Do

Tons of papers all over my table.

Tons of papers all over my table.

As a teacher my job is to teach but there is so much more of our job than just teaching, and one of those is collating of papers. This is what I got Monday this week, a pile of papers. I need to sort it out because those are the texts that my students will read for the next meeting. Above all, I should be thankful that the photocopy I got was absolutely free, charged to the school and I did not photocopied it by myself. I just got it all done and ready for collation. But just to be true, until now, I am not yet done collating those papers. *lol!*

Tuesday: Mirror, Mirror

My mirror is actually adored by everyone in the office.

One of the things that complete my table is my mirror. I got it 3 years ago at a very low price. It looks elegant isn’t it? This item is essential for me because I am so vain and I always think that I need a retouch every other class. The mirror gives me a majestic feeling every time I see my face there. It feels like I’m the bad queen in the fairy tale asking the mirror, “Mirror, mirror, who’s the fairest of them all?”

Wednesday: “Ihaw-Ihaw”, Beats My Bad Day

Grilled foods. That’s the direct translation of it in English. I felt bad this Wednesday. I am actually sick that’s why when I arrived home after work, I decide to ask mom to accompany me at the nearby “hilot” or massage therapists. There we passed by this mini resto that offers alcoholic beverages and sort of canapés composed of grilled foods. They got seafood, poultry and pork that are partially cooked and ready to be grilled once the order comes. I love this kind of food (and most of the Filipinos too) because of the condiment it has… sour and spicy vinegar. My mom asked me to buy her some of it and above were the food items that we’ve got. It is actually cheap but overly delicious!

Thursday: Cookies and Candies

I was absent this Thursday at work because I was sick. Staying at home made me get a full rest. My little sister who goes to school in a half day sched accompanied me and took care of me while mom is out. Later in the afternoon, she went with mom to the grocery. After they arrived, she immediately climbed to my room and gave me these little treats, chewy candies and chunky cookies. Our baby is such a sweet girl.

I should not eat these because it is sweet but I still accepted it.  It is always the thought that counts.

Friday: Have a Break, Have a Kitkat

Thank you to that kind soul who visited me last Friday.

Seeing this little one on my table in such a busy day made everything felt so good. It made me realized that in the midst of a busy life that we have, there is always a kind soul that will pause for a while just to show that they actually care. So much for a good vibes!

Saturday: Earrings Inspired

Newest addition to my collection.

Newest addition to my collection.

Saturday is my thesis day. Yesterday was quite enjoyable compared to others because I met a good friend before I go to my class. We stroll around the mall, catch up with each other and had our Starbucks. We also had our window shopping and got some little hauls. For me, I got accessories as always. It’s from Papemelroti. More than the style, I want the wisdom in it. SOAR!

That completes my Blog Bitz this week. How about you sweeties? What are the little things that made your week? Oh well, hope to read from you soon. Have another great week ahead!
