My Birthday Loot!!!!

There are good things and bad things about celebrating ones birthday.

1. You are a year older.
2. Clock is ticking faster. (I kinda still want to have a baby)
3. It costs quite a lot.

1. You are amongst your good friends and family.
2. There's plenty of food and a free birthday cake.
3. The gifts!!! WOOOHOOO!!!

After last night's celebration, I decided to open all the gifts in the morning. Perhaps it would cheer me up from my recent ouchy. And boy, it sure did!!!!

Thank you to all!!!

I feel like a Price is Right showcase girl.

Shopping Helps!

When Amina celebrates her birthday, she usually invites her friends and guests to a 50% off Everything Sale in her store in Rockwell.

It was the morning after my big heartbreak and I needed to get away from the office so as early as 11:30 am, I headed off to shop my blues away. I thought I would be so early that I would get first dibs on the wonderful creations of Aranaz.

Boy oh boy...when I got there, this is what I saw.

After a bucket of sweat, here's what I finally went home with. I felt much better which only proves that shopping, aside from good friends, makes the world not as bad as you think.

The Party That Healed Me.

I guess some of you know by now what I went through the last couple of days. It was hard and painful and although I know that time will heal the wound, the scar will always remain in my heart.

Despite how down I was feeling, I decided to celebrate my birthday, even if it is already a month late, with good and old friends at e's Bar of Shangri-la Hotel.

I was just so happy to see everyone giving me support and valuable advice. I was given strength and knowledge from a few friends of mine who went through a similar thing, or even worse. They all made it and now live a very happy, safe and fulfilling life.

It has only been 3 days since the incident, yet, after my healing therapy, which some of you know how, I was able to sleep well last night, woke up without hate in my heart. I hope and pray that from here, I start a new chapter of my life filled with real love and happiness. Not necessarily from a man but from myself, family and friends.

I know I have hudreds out there but here's to the ones from last night's party that healed my ouchy.


Thank you so much to the Food and Beverage Department, headed by Jojo Berenguer for the wonderful birthday cake. It's the best that I have ever received. EVER!!!

Good Things Come in 3's.

Three great things happened yesterday.


I only spent three hours at work (hahaha). Second, we finally met up with Moms for Moms who's working extra hard in helping out Fabella Hospital at Pepper Lunch, care of Chuvaness. We decided to take a trip to the hospital next week and see for ourselves what the hospital needs so we can buy the items with the money raised.

For your information, altogether, we were able to reach an astonishing amount of P830,000+ (please see for exact amount).

I feel that this will go a looooong way to make the situation of the babies and mothers in Fabella a lot better but of course, the contributions and assistance will always be welcome.

Here's a photo of the Moms who started it all.

Rea Gomez-Harrow, Sheila Catilo, Tina Navarro and Edna Chua and their little ones.

My favorite bloggers.


We had our make up done at Body Shop, Rockwell, once again, because of Chuvaness. We decided to get our face done for the launch of a magazine happening at Greenbelt 5. Thanks to the Body Shop staff who accommodated us and made us look cute! (hehehe)

Your bloggerina and the artist.


Celebrity hunk and chef, Rob Pengson graces the cover of 100 magazine. It was launched at Lusso at Greenbelt 5. Cocktails and happy liquid were passed around like there's no tomorrow (especially when you give the waiter a tip, heheee).

I was so happy last night because I was amongst my favorite people. Ms. Bella Yuchengco, Sunshine and Rob Pengson and the CandyMan.
