LE SALT & PEPPER PROJECT
hello, loves. i bring good news and great joy for everyone. hoorah! so here is the sixth one of our le salt & pepper project series and i couldn't be more grateful and excited to tell you guys that well, first, i am thankful to God for this chance of being able to dine in this awesome place. next is for the opportunity to have a mini exclusive interview with the owners of lucy in the sky. aghhhhh! i can't wait to spill. so let's get started!
ding!ding!ding! you're right. this is a vegetarian which-have-food-that-don't-even-taste-a-bit-like-vegetables restaurant. so for those of you who are not a fan of veggies, fear not. for this is the restaurant for you.
what a menu this menu.
this menu is da bomb!
too cute for my life.
just...please, look at it.
and of course, mason jars. (love!)
as i entered the restaurant, my head started doubting if we were really in the right place. why is it so colourful and vibrant in here? the feels of home sweet home is pouring all over my heart. i couldn't contain myself from smiling wittily as i took lots of photograph due to my excitement of sharing with you guys about our latest discovery. (credits to my sissy)
i love vintage (well, it's not too obvious..misspaulinevintage lol). anyways, the place is fantastic. it felt so much like a real home that caused me to eat like a kid at home. (hey, that rhymed!)
however, before the sharing starts, i must first receive the two thumbs up of my family members regarding the food quality. can i just say..let the sixth hunger games begin! *AHA "hunger" get it?*
this vegetarian sisig is one of the best non-meat version of sisig that i have ever had. one wouldn't be able to say that this isn't real meat. that is how good this food is.
tita maia and tito jan (the sibling owners) told us that they have never yet tasted real dinuguan before. they are vegetarians since birth..which i found totally cool and simply amazing. i was amazed with the fact that they have never even tasted real dinuguan and yet they were able to make one through the help of their friends' taste buds. what? no way! amazing, isn't it?
i can hardly believe that the patty of this burger was made from puso ng saging (heart of the banana). i especially loved the crunchy taste of the patty with every bite. the chips were also incredible.
and this lasagna, guys. this is only made from healthy vegetables yet the taste is spectacular. the taste is almost, very close to the real lasagna. taste is awesome. less meat and carbs. i'm totally going back for this lasagna!
the pasta is actually made from malunggay. coolza! this pesto pasta tasted healthy to me. however, my mom, dad and sis loved it.
meanwhile, at the back of the colourful restaurant comes a more colourful and artistic puhhhhlace..
and guys, may i just please introduce to you our future vaseline baby hair model, maxi.
maxi is tita maia's son. isn't he adorable?
so how did they get the idea of starting their own restaurant?
it all started with "my little art place gallery." she loves art and is teaching kids to paint, as we can all see. she said that she saw the parents of the kiddos looking for food across the
street to munch on while waiting for their little artists. and then she thought to herself, my own restaurant. why not?
yup. the people behind these amazing paintings, you ask? they are kiddos ranging from 4-17 yrs old. i could hardly believe it, honestly. i was deeply mesmerised and amazed. my mom especially loved the fruit painting. just sayin'.. hahhaa.
why lucy in the sky?
"are you lucy?" my mom asked. amusingly, she's not lucy. her name is maia. tita maia told us that the reason behind their restaurant's name is because of a song (which isn't very familiar to me lol) that she thought felt very light. as a painter, they usually get that special feeling of creativity that is kind of hard to explain.
tho if you want to know more about how that special feeling truly feels like, ask tita maia personally for a more beautiful experience!
Lucy in the Sky

course we had to snap da moment. yay!

HOLIDAY GIFT DUIDE / 02
today's gift guide is for tweens and teens. as a teen, i easily outgrow something that i once loved, eager to discover something new that is cooler or fitted to start a new collection of sorts. as tricky as it is, it can be done. these are a few of my suggestions..
J O U R N E Y
so my lovely familia decided to stay overnight at tagaytay for this year's halloween. we didn't go trick or treatin' this time in respect to what we learned from ma'am virginia. she said it's bad, guys. but hold your emotions right there. believe it or not we also felt disappointed and sad. trick or treatin' has been everyone's yearly routine. but what's more fun than standing for the right ground? anyway, let's go back to tagaytay.
L I F E S T Y L E
lauren and i decided to join this zumba party in order to get physically fit. and it FINALLY came true. laughing while sweating you say? zumba's objective is basically helping people to get fit while enjoying..which they do through dancing. it was really a hardcore workout. and was fun too. i honestly did not expect it to be of so much fun itself and not just because i was with lauren. we sweated and laughed a lot. for folks wanting to lose some weight or even just having the desire to dance the night away, why don't you try zumba-ing.
P I N K
just wanted to share these cool and small reminders that i found at tumblr.
P R A Y E R
today, we attended the lion king movement at Grace Christian College (my high school) with ma'am Virginia as our mentor. ma'am Andrea is the assistant mentor. praise the Lord for this opportunity for us to gather again. i am really beyond blessed. what's more? Lu and Nic attended LKM for the first time. with Bel but this isn't her first time tho. Lion King Movement is a small (yet) group that discusses about our heavenly Father. it's basically a Bible study group. and every time i attend the LKM, i feel the peace. peace in God. so here's a short story of my own answered prayer..
p.s. everyone is welcome to attend. don't hesitate to message me. (i don't bite)
ONE MORE TRY
my mom and dad loves the series, My husband's lover. too much love that they decided to watch the series's concert, One More Try. gags! it was my first time going to araneta colliseum, embarrassing but it's the truth. a lot of people attended and we really enjoyed this night.
ooooooopsie! did i mention that this concert was rated PG? HAHAHA they had 6-pack abs. and it was genuine! i'm guessing those guys are from the militar. i love their white umbrellas idea too. totally caught my attention. it was a fantastic night! i love my family. praise the Lord! :)
Today is officially the start of our semester break. HOOORAH! i plan on joining the zumba training to get physically fit again. ever since college has started i kept on gaining weight, not remembering to lose some. food is just too..........irresistible. hahaha. and i am so excited for new adventures and experiences this break. anyways, what's new? here are some of my interests these past few days..
do you have anything new worth sharing?
my own-made amigurumi.
i finished Disney's Aladdin's I can show you the world already. (yay!) →pianosheets
The Vampire Diaries season 5 is out.
good-bye to the first half of my freshman year.
BLACK MEETS WHITE
i am so happy to have these crays as my sisters. i love them to bits! and because of our coincidental matching colors-white and black, we decided to take some photos today. we were walking down the streets of Grace (our high school and i highly recommend this school) and spotted this white fence at the kindergarten area that we thought would be the perfect backdrop for our pictures. (warning: this post is image heavy.)
white cap, f21
shorts, made by her mother (how cool!)
watch, michael kors
"75" top, topshop
pants, pink celebrity by macy's
black cap, stradivarius
flats, hush puppies
Aaand the day has arrived. FINALLY. We crammed this play in a week and we are doing really great too. two classes X 3 judges + sir Diccion. winners' paper will be waived and get a perfect score. WHOA. now who wouldn't take this play for serious??
the place was so cool. just a small room with matte-finished black walls. the play felt real (it IS real, pauline!) especially the backstage and timing parts. truly a memorable and awesome experience! i..proudly can say that i was an extra. HAHAHA. it was nerve-wracking but that's what makes it fun.
my kaloka-like when smiling, Zaila. isn't she lovely? #justlikeme
backstage with Maan, Angela and Ira.
(from ←to →)
we started with Intelstar
And then TRES ATTAQUES DE CORAZON where i participated as an extra
can you spot me??
the end. we did our best. yes, we did. unfortunately, i am semi-disappointed to announce that we did not win the battle. HAHAHA! it's fine though. 500-700 words reaction paper, here we come!
this was absolutely one of the best times of my college life.
Today was full of rainbows. dead tired but marvelous. i was actually with Gretchen Ho. YES. the famous volleyball player of the Ateneo or rather, the kaloka-like of Gretchen Ho-Nicole. HAHAHA. I swear Nicole just reminds me of Gretchen Ho so much! anyways, the Ateneo grade school had a fair that we impromptly attended today. the sun was scourching but...those kids were way too irresistible that i just had to take home some babies-photos. a-dorbs!!

unfortunately, we didn't have the chance to experience those ultimate rides due to our tight schedule. kyna, jam, and lauren have to study. evertt needed to go home. nicole had to kill time in the rizal lib while waiting for me and i had to practice for our filipino theatrical play tomorrow. YUP. I am officially an extra! yay! we had extra fun tonight at elevate, oh you guys should try going! it's really really really fun.

A SIMPLE REMINDER
God makes the impossible possible so we should be afraid of nothing. He is with us always, and He loves us so dearly. if anyone wants to know more about our heavenly Father, don't hesitate to leave your emails on the comment box below :)
We ended our September 1 with jambalicious Jamba Juice! I recommend the Banana Berry & the Strawberries Wild plus a boost of 4 healthy choices like antioxidants or vit C! Though those two are their best-sellers! Hahaha! Hope you had a great 1st day of September too!X
Good news!! The newest branch of Starbucks is now open. Oh yay! Oh yay!
