Dennis The Not So Menace.

Just a tad bit of a headache according to Ivar and myself (secret).

Anyway, two weeks ago, we helped celebrate his birthday at Girafitto, a now favorite restaurant of mine. It serves delicious Italian food and their specialty is the thinnest crunchy pizza. 

Delicious grapes and strawberries go very well with the platter of cheese.

I was in charge of the desserts so I brought a very moist chocolate cake with extra doze of caramel. 

A kick-ass huge strawberry shortcake. 

Walnut and Date bars. 

The Lustico Gang. 

Love you Dennis!

MEGA Pinoy Pride, 2013.

A few days before the MEGA Pinoy Pride, Omar Ermita said to me, "The bigger the hair, the smaller the face." So on the night of the Pinoy Pride, I put a can of mousse on my hair and started curling it with my curling iron. After I curled it, I put hairspray, a liter of it. After that was done, as I was waiting for my ride, I decided to curl it even more. I was targeting the "bigger hair" thing. At last, I had to leave only to see my hair still a bit flat. Sure, it has a few curls but I wanted MORE!!!

So Omar, this is for you.
