CROCHET 101 : the beginning

 

 

and i'm not even kidding. this is a crochet series where i will be teaching you some basic stitches and techniques on crocheting. i was able to make a few wearables that i learned only from the internet before, therefore, i am confident that crocheting is a skill that can be learned online. by the end of the series, you will be able to have your very own home-made garments to keep or give. it's both very simple and fun at the same time!

 

 

 

 

this is how you hold your yarn with your left hand (well, if you are right-handed otherwise it's the opposite)

 

 

 

 

now make a small knot using your crochet hook

 

 

 

repeat the process and make 16 (depending on how wide you want your scarf to be oops. you got me. yes. we are making a scarf for this series hahaha) and btw, this is called the chain stitch

 

 

 

 

looks kind of a mess but it's the beginning of something beautiful. stay tuned to learn more about other crochet stitches, and start working on the body of our scarf!

LE SALT & PEPPER PROJECT

0:4

 

 

la creperie's menu is so adorable!

 

 

 

 

their place felt like home. i am especially in love with those lightbulbs on their ceiling.

 

 

 

 

here comes the best part of all - foooooooooooooood!

 

 

 

 

the amount of cheese in this pasta.........i died.

 

 

 

 

tho i am a fan of onions, i liked their pumpkin soup better. sorry frenchy oniyonss with elastic cheese! heehee!

 

 

 

this moussaka is very much similar to the lasagna. just the eggplant that made it different.

 

 

 

and this, you guys. this is it. no buts, no excuses, no more. salidou crepe is simply perfection. 

 

 

summer school is starting tomorrow and i am freaking out. well, maybe just a little but still. anyway, i couldn't have been more happier and thankful to my sister for introducing this local cafe shop to me. i mean, who would have noticed this small cafe shop on the corner of new manila with a big giant tree in front of it? maybe you would but i doubt i will. the place is small but gorgeous! and their food..the photographs says it all. thank you, to whoever invented this place and the salidou crepe. i am so going back for that salidou crepe! 

 

ps: congrats to manny pacman for winning against bradley today. you make us super proud! ♥

PARFAIT

 

 

an easy and simple healthy breakfast parfait

 

 

 

 

fruits taste great in parfaits! strawberries, blueberries, mangoes, and bananas are some of my faves.

 

 

 

 

they say nuts can make you wiser B-)

 

 

 

 

reward yourself by topping it off with some chocholate syrruuuu-huuuuup!

 

 

 

i've been making and eating this breakfast parfait for quite a while now. why? well, because it's good, easy, and fast. very often i tend to skip breakfast due to my idea of sleep > eat. but i was wrong. eating breakfast is as important as getting 8-9 hours of sleep every day. after discovering this parfait, i actually get very excited to wake up in the morning to eat breakfast. no need to worry about those calories because this food is healthy. yes, healthy. well except for the chocolate part, i guess, but that's for our reward. so don't hold yourself now. 

 

tweet away! |

PARTEA

 

shane's idea : pancake + greek yoghurt + fresh fruits with froot loops on top

 

 

home-made bunting! yay!

 

 

drumroll please! dendendeeeeeeeen..

 

it's..

 

 

ze parteaaa!

 


it's basically just stacking up all the food in a gorgeous and "partea" way yumm yumm yumm!

 

 

so we actually decided to have a mini tea party just the night before all of this happened. this was for the reason of wanting to catch up with some high school sisters that separated ways and went to other univesities. i am so glad that we pushed this idea through because that afternoon was simply amazing. a partea is easy, fast, and tiring yet so much fun, really! you guys should try this! 

 

don't forget to tweet me your partea (if ever) yay!

FAVE JUNKIES

glue, barbecue sticks, yarns, triangles, sharpie.

my brother and i crammed err..finished this gift in two hours due to a surprise dinner that my mom has planned for sissy dear. if my sister is reading this now, you now know how we made your gift and what it really is. hope you liked it! ♥ inside the circle are my sister's 4ever fave junk food. it's pretty much a foodie bouquet with the fiesta feel. i think that this is a great present for people on their 20's to help remind them of their fun and youthful bum days. you can also be creative and change the foodies to whatever you want. it'd be fantastico, i'm sure!

 

 

ps: don't forget to tweet me your recreation! :)

LEMONY LEMONS

 

| this is not a sponsored post | i was not paid to make this post | 

 

aand because it has been a lemontastic day.....hola, lemoners! let's start off by asking, what are lemons? well they are basically those yellow circular-oblongish fruit that we love to put in our glass of water when we were younger, and now our mothers love because it was proven that lemons do kill cancer cells. it is the easiest of the easiest drink that you can ever make. well, at least for me but what is this lemony stand, really? it is a stall where lemon-infused healthy food are sold at a very reasonable price. like, very. a group of students from the ateneo proposed this really cute and awesome stall in the upcoming jsec challenge phase 3 this february 10-14, 2014, at the ateneo sec field, just in time for valentine's day, ey? i tried their free-taste food and it was amazing. leMOOny + tempura bacon is maaah personal fave and i am still craving for those two right now. you guys have to watch out for this. visit their stall at the sec field from 9AM-4PM. you have to bring your friends with you..because it's gonna be worth the visit.

 

are you drooling yet? because i am.

 

oh! did i mention that they have free delivery around campus? just dial their number and voila! lemony stand at your hands. get a stab from them now.

sun: 0942-499-2982

globe: 0917-826-2435

 

like their page on facebook.

 

ps: you can also follow lemony stand on instagram and twitter.

 

pss: if you'd like to be a jsec stall owner, of course you may! wait for their recruitments announcement. it'd be a really great opportunity and experience for you.

THE PERF-GIFT-FOR-? KIT

heeyup. you guessed it. this is shane's 18th birthday gift.

1. planning. jot down your plans in a paper. notes in your cellphone is a great idea too! to make it more special and specific, i gave one present for each letter of shane's name.  give him/her gifts with a special meaning.

2. look for a kit. i spray-painted mine all-black. i just thought black would look more professional and real but you may, of course, use any color that you prefer.

3. gather up materials. i bought some new scraps from the bookstore and for the other scraps, well.. i just got from anywhere around the house. promote recycling, guys!

4. start with your presents. A is for album. i decided to make our very own scrapbook-album.

design, design, design.

i told her in characters the meaning of my presents to make her less confused.

 

s- skirt from topshop (your fave store)

h- hershey's cookies&cream (your fave chocolate)

a- album (your fave guuurl)

n- cloud "n"ine chocolates (hahaha fave choco as well)

e- car"eeeee"t (*we had a memory about carrots*)

 

just be creative and come up with something. your hardwork will pay off in the end. i know because mine did. shane loved the kit and that is what matters most. not the sleepless nights and time consumed, but the thoughts that you actually put into it.

the final look of shame and paulame's journey.

HOMESPIRATIONS

here are just a few of my fave pins that inspires me to work even harder and soon have a space of my own. after watching soul surfer and revenge, i have started to crave for a house beside the beach. though my mom always reminds me of natural disasters like tsunami, i still plan on getting one. hahaha. nature outside my home is what i would really pursue in the future. i love nature and would enjoy them even more when surrounded by cozy pillows, beds, and people i mean my family and friends. i love how cozy-looking these spaces are. also, i am so much into lightbulbs. thanks, uncle thomas. no, please don't get me wrong. i am chinese. they just look too fab and vintage. guess i am really into the vintage side after all.

 

what is your dream house like?

WEEKEND OUTING

*looks at you* oh, hi there! wazzzzzuuuuup? the sky? but i'm at home. you must mean the ceiling then? hahaha! anywayyyyyyss.. our weekend outing in photographs at pico de loro, batangas. yes, as you can see, the trip was quite awe-some! cavitex is now open and is worth the curve, i tell you. the air is very clean and unpolluted hoping it would stay like this forever and the beachhhhhh. oh, man. i'm a beach girl, i love the beach. especially the great view and picture quality i know you feel me, girl because at the beach, you get to wear those big floppy hats and knitted tops with da fringes awyeah that you've long been waiting to pull out from your closet. i must say, their lagoon is so pure, clean and green. there are not much people yet though, perhaps it's your great chance now. c'mon do the great escape.

 

..after the real live proposal that i've witnessed for the first time ever here, we have again, another time witnessed an unknown true love story truly an honor for me but now at the beach aghhhhh couldn't be more grateful for this opportunity. it was beautiful. and now i'm dreaming of my own beach wedding.

 

PS: can you spot the cute tiny-but-tiny yellow bean on the sky?

SURVIVAL KIT + TIPS

because midterms and finals are coming up so soon (well, at least for me)..here's a little midterms survival kit for you guys.

 

1. nuts : these nuts are very good for your brain. instead of chips, why don't you snack on much healthier food like nuts or fruits?

 

2. yoghurt with fruits : try to eat before you leave. breakfast is the most important meal of the day. trust me it would help you think better during exams.

 

3. scrunchies : i don't know for you but for me, i like to tie my hair high up in a bun while studying for the exams. honestly, i don't want those bangs getting on my way.

 

4. water : now this you shall not forget. you have to keep yourself hydrated all the time in order to think properly.

 

5. highlighters : these sharpies are great for coloring those important terms. they've hit me big time. fell deeply in love with each one of them. 

 

6. pj's : jump in your most comfy outfit (pj's/oversized tee with leggings for me) 

 

more tips : take frequent breaks every 30 mins to an hour. stretch and breathe. you can even check your instagram, twitter or facebook; it may serve as a breather. lastly, don't forget to pray.

 

just do your best and God will do the rest. pretty sure you'll do well, you awesome person, you!

MANILA HOTEL

so last new year's eve, we chose manila hotel to stay for the night. with expectations of the 2014 countdown. upon entering the hotel, i was deeply mesmerized and stunned for about 5 seconds by their nye's decorations. not to mention that they had two huge christmas trees beside the stage which are adorbs and santa lanterns on the tables which are super adorable..again. oh oh! those giant soldiers were striking and cute too. i am also in love with their shiny, very woody-like ceiling and of course, their vintage chandeliers will always be the best. inside every room, you can't not notice those tiny little drinks. i mean they are just too cute. meant for drinking but only decorations for children oh you mean angels mwahaha like me. everything was going really great and then midnight came. it became greater. party here, party there, too much fun in the house. it was crazy fun. everybody was all smiling, greeting anyone they bump into a happy new year. what an awesome countdown. and down there, ↓ is only one evidence of my craziest last minute for the year 2013.

EVERDEEN'S HAIRSTYLE : SIMPLE VERSION

this is my favorite hairstyle of all times not only because of its difficulty level but also because of its beauty. it looks very classy and cute. you can always do this style anytime and anywhere. from a garden party in the morning or any family party to a girls' night out or college party in the evening. just as long as you have that scrunchy with you. any age would do too, actually. don't panic when people ask you how you did your simple version of katniss everdeen's hair though!

LE SALT & PEPPER PROJECT

0:3

so for those of you who doesn't know yet..let me first introduce to you guys, le salt & pepper project. my experiences with restaurants to help promote a healthy diet plus new discoveries or rather, adventures with your family and friends in town. my family is a little bit conscious when it comes to food. unhealthy and unappealing not only to the eyes but also to our bellies is a total thumbs down. the place do matters a lot too. and so i've decided to share food that me and my family approve of. health is wealth, really. it's a lot of photographs when all is said and done.

look at what i found. too cute. ↓

guys, i have just discovered this town's BEST. HOT. CHOCOLATE. DRINK. EVAHHHH. today's le salt & pepper project is taking place at a very authentic cafe called, mary grace.  yep. mary grace. copy that? mary guhhhrace. how graceful, isn't it? i love this place so much. not to mention their food taste amazebeans! from salads to pastas, hot chocos to cakes, they are all good stuff. everything is very simple in here. they give a customer the aura of a traditional yet beautiful feeling. breakfast, "meryenda" or dinner, this is a great place to hang. with friends or families, this is the right place.

meet plum the mcFrosty, my snooooowman. teehee! 

it's the most wonderful time of the year. yay! it's Chriiiiiiiiiistmas! after we have finished every person on our gift checklist, we must not forget the happiness of giving back. to help the less fortunate because that is love. and that is what Jesus wants to see us do. to share His love. He loves us so dearly. never forget that He is the reason for this season. an inspiration always reminds me everyday that less is more. have a bountiful and fulfilling merry Christmas, everyone!

GIFT WRAPPING

so my mom was actually wrapping up some Christmas presents when i suddenly realized that i could share this really simple and cute gift wrapping idea to you guys. because i would really appreciate to receive one in this wrapping style, i know you guys would too. also, it became a "last-minute" idea for it is already the 24th. couldn't be more excited for Christmas! what are your plans for Christmas?

so here are some of the few things that you will be needing and that can be found at most homes, which makes it simpler

 

  1.  crepe papers
  2. magic tape
  3. a pair of scissors
  4. ribbons
  5. gift tags

 

so basically, you just wrap the present with a crepe paper instead of a gift wrapper which is more expensive and then tie a really cute ribbon on it. place a gift tag and voila! your Christmas present is now good for sending off. they would look really cute under a christmas tree too, ya know. just sayin'..

*singing* Joy to the woooooorld the Lord is come. let earth, receive, her Kiiiiiiiiiiiiing! let e-vuh-ryyyy heee-aart..

D I Y : CHRISTMAS PAROL

because it's Christmas and we needed a home-made Christmas decor for our paired Green Christmas project, chloei and i decided to make a Christmas parol..out of recycled things. well, except for the foil.

 

 

....and tape.


first, put holes on both ends of the bottles. place the steel wires inside. the next step is optional, you can have a wood or none at all, putting two sepatated wires on two horizontal ends of the bottle (one near the bottle cap side and one near the butt side) drill them then into the wood (ask someone to do this for you as it is quite tough to do it on your own)

after making some wires shaped like a hanger, you then construct a board. you can make a rectangle-shaped board like what we did over there, a star (a normal parol has a star in the middle) or any shape that you want. a star looks really cute though. we had to make it rectangle due to our project's scoring issue-it has to be unique. decorate the board by pasting print-out quotes and you can even cut letters out from a magazine for a more recycled project (ours was from my chemistry papers last sem). paste whatever quote/image you want. be creative. 

if you decided to have a wood, wrap it up with foil of any color that lightens you up- to cover the wood or you can also not wrap the wood for a "woody" aura.

and voila! your own home-made recycled Christmas parol that no one in the world can ever have. hihihihi.

FRIDAY NIGHT MOVIE

 friday is the last day of the school week- which means freedooooooom- with saturday aside, is the most worry-free night too.  (for we can do-cram- all the school works tomorruhhh and on sunday) and because i love watching movies every frinight, here's a friday night movie guide for you. yipee!

so first is the pj's. you must be on your fave pj's because that will not only make you feel good (slash comfy) but also make you look cuter. second is of course, popcorn! you gotta feel the movie vibes, girl. especially with the really really cute yellow tumbler. for next is hot chocolate and le blanket. it's a bit cold in there and all you want to do is release your stress of the week and get all cozied up. *burrr* also, you might want to throw piles of pillows on your sofa for a more cloudy and fluffy time. and last to forget is your dvd. the grinch and rise of the guardians are two of my highest recommended family movies. awesome they are. oh yes they're awesome. that's it. your friday movie night-the best cure you can ever have. enjoy.

TEA

so here's a new discovery (a.k.a. addiction) in addition to my tea latte list. (other one's here) this one has a really special chai tea aroma and when i am exhausted from school works or anything, i would always crave for it. drinking it would make my world so magical afterwards. feels so chai. too good not to share. and now may i present to you, loves, the best (so far) aromatic tea latte from the coffee bean, chai tea latte. make it hot please.

BIRTHDAY PRESENTS IDEAS

i'd like to share some of the gifts that my family and friends gave me for my birthday. (oh what birthdays can do) these made my heart smile and i think that they are great presents for anyone around my age. when you shop online or at the mall for a birthday present, give him something you'd appreciate yourself. and always remember to consider his side. will it be useful to him? will he like it? you should also think about your relationship with him. for instance, kyna and i talked about diary of a wimpy kid a couple of times before my birthday. she knew i wanted to have one. tadah! i literally have one on my hands now. (see what i mean?) observe him. and then grab on your mind what stuffs his eyes and mouth would open at. cause that'd be the perfect gift. but do remember that it's always the thought that counts and the heart that matters most.

 

ps: it's december!!!!! burrr burr..

 

 

1. promod knitted hat. 2. diary of a wimpy kid. 3. forever 21 gift card. 4. f21 shoulder bag. 5. cotton on scarf. 

 

  

|posted presents are from lauren, kyna, mother, chloei + kimiko| 

thank you, guys! i am deeply in love with each one of them. ♥

ONE WEEK

this week passed by so quickly without me even noticing that it is already weekend. every day was a new beginning with new challenges. it was certainly a hectic week especially when kyna's and my birth days were part of it, but we still made time for each other. and i can't thank them enough for everything. they surprised me during dinner on the 28th. wasn't really expecting them to do the surprise on that day (i knew they'd make one) but i literally cried. inside, fortunately. thank you. and cheers to another year of our teenage life, kyna! gotta spend 'em wisely!

 

monday : kyna turns 17.

tuesday : my first math long exam.

wednesday : lauren oliver is awesome.

thursday : i turn 17.
friday : we were assigned music team at elevate. truly an honor.
saturday : attended counterflow and i have no regrets at all. (you guys should go! it is really fun and informative.)

EGG BALM

december is fast approaching. and with the cool weather, we shouldn't forget about our skin. and by skin what i mean is our lips. lips are the thickest skin in our body. i know i know, that was the same reaction i had the first time i learned about this. hahaha. be rest assured for eos balms are on their way to soothe your lips. not to mention that they are sooooooo adorable and easy to use. tsup tsup! 

 

ps: looks like the cover photo of twilight, doesn't it? *evil laugh*

WHAT MATTERS MOST

cheers for the complete set of what matters most. i finally have the four complete versions. i couldn't be more grateful and excited to finish for women. each book has been with me every night before i sleep, for men or for the heart ohhh they're all so beautiful. three words, three syllables. a must-read. it contains five parts inside: to think about, lesson for life, real life, action step and prayer per segment. once a day, it won't cover up the whole day, not so bad at all. also thought that this would be a great gift idea for friends of any age (including mom and dad friends *lightbulb*). it's good and affordable. too cool not to share.

JOURNEY AT BATANGAS

← hey there, gorgeous\ belrica


we arrived at shercon resort and ecology park last saturday due to ateneo's celadon's leadership development program. this was totally a once in a lifetime experience and i can't even...i can't even remember a single second of regret while i was in there. the place was amazing. we did a lot of activities that would help enhance our leadership skills. amazing race is one of the main activity that we had. highly recommended for team buildings or trainings like this one. i met quite a lot of awesome people and all i can say is that..you guys are awesome. i just had the time of my life. and i'm pretty sure that every ldp-er would have said the same thing when asked.

 

for those who haven't gone to any ldp or team building outings yet, i say breathe deep and go for one now!

so the reason why i wasn't able to update my blog last weekend was because..

VINTAGE • LOVE

look what i found! heeyups. found. past tense. this book is already vintage. and is only one in the whole wide world!*evil laugh* so actually..5 years ago, big sissy already introduced the term 3D to me. and now i believe that she is the one and only person behind 3D. (oh i'm just kidding.) anyways, this home-made short story book was hand-made by my big sister. i remember the moment she lend this to me, i was so awestrucked, scanning through the pages repeatedly because she unconditionally made just a few pages for us to flip through..(i say purposely) to make me crave for more. AHA! (i was just kidding!again.love you sis!) well, this is actually a great gift idea for any ages. you can make it as a birthday fiction "story" card, or maybe a simple non-fiction/fiction story book about you and your girlfriend. that would be really sweet.

 

talk about girlfriends and gifts..kyna's birthday is coming up so soon!Nov.25.mine's 3 days after.☻

WORN: SCHOOL EDITION 01

after long hours of blood, sweat, tears and toil in school..have you ever slept at midnight still thinking about what to wear for school the next day? or may be planning on your outfit ever since you got home at 4pm? for this month's we wore what series, i would be helping you guys get some ideas for your school outfits. (stoked!) anwyay, here's the first batch of outfits that we wore at school. comfort will be our first rule. without comfort, how would a student be able to study and focus well? second rule is to not show too much skin. remember, this place isn't the beach or the mall. it is a school. third rule? i guess that would be the rule about confidence. wear what you feel like wearing that day and something that you'd have confidence in. last rule is of course, to never forget to wear your smile.

 

ps: the last pic is our bloopie hahaha.

this is what we wore..Lauren wore: top sweater, topshop. skirt, promod. tights, marks and spencer. shoes, debenhams. I wore: black top, uniqlo. checkered vest, vintage. skirt, cotton on. sandals, george. Kyna wore: top, forever21. shorts, home-made. shoes, terra and agua.

GOOD READS, GOOD WORKS

great news!! one of the rooms is going to be renovated next week. yay! we had to remove everything inside that room including the big stuffs..whereafter i found our book galore. i can honestly say that i'm not a fan of books....or am i? i prefer watching movies though. or not..hahaha. anyway i guess i love both books and movies. enough said. some of the books in our so-called book galore will now officially be donated. maybe some to tzuchi and some to my alac rummage sale project this coming november 30. all the memories that we had as young children with these books..how could i ever forget. though a tough decision, that's obviously the better choice. to share one's blessing is more fun than having everything one wants. something that money can never buy.

 

..do you have anything you would want to donate? feel free to contact me without any hesitation. i don't bite.

THE DAILY 6

since today there is a super typhoon coming..(let's continue to pray for the Philippines) i decided to share my daily 6 to you. i have a really sensitive skin due to my family's breed and that's what made us more interested about skin care products. like a bb cream w/o spf? that's a big no-no for us. sunblock is a daily must-put..otherwise you might have more freckles than expected when you get older. mother said so. and mother knows best. (scared? don't be. it's not yet too late.) here are some of my recommended and tested products that i use almost everyday..and they still haven't left any negative mark on me. i am so thankful for the people behind these products. they are real geniuses! and of course, my mom for the never-ending support. and the Lord too. stay safe and dry, everyone!

 

i'd love to hear about your daily 6? or maybe 7?

1: grace cole talcum/ i usually put this (it's a scented powder) after bath. 2: old williamsburgh candle/ this i use whenever i feel like using it anytime of the day,  just be sure to leave at least one window open. 3: shu uemura cream/ it's actually a bb cream that has excellent coverage and ingredients. it has spf 35 too! just perfect isn't it? 4: maybelline lip balm/ i use this balm with spf (yipee!) everyday. whenever we have a on-the-spot outing, i zoom out the door with my phone and this balm. i repeat. this balm and not my wallet. 5: jurlique hand cream/ this is it. used every night.  6: shu uemura facial wash/ i love this wash. i use it everyday and night. it gives my skin a special feeling. a huge round of applause for shu.

LASALLIANS

a week ago, we went to visit some high school friends at de lasalle university. that is because we have our sem-break and they don't/peace with kiss hahahaha/ i have missed them so much. how i wish that we could just rewind the time and go back to the very simple and puerile high school life. but let's make the most of what we have and cherish the memories of the past. and just like Arnold Gaslow said..btw, i got those amazing portraits at serenitea's.

LE SALT & PEPPER PROJECT

0:2

 nurture's spa is another thumb's up for me and my family. their self-harvested and sure-to-be organic vegetables make the thumb go even higher. not only are their food healthy and delicious, but their place is as soothing and relaxing as well. as shown, we decided to order just a few dishes of veggies and snacks due to our full tummy (i blame sonyas garden's bakers hahaha). i can never get enough of the oriental dressing. ever.

 

footnote: sem-break has finally came to an end. here's to the first day of second semester!

TAGAYTAY

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. 

everything about tagaytay feels very organic to me. the unpolluted cold air, the bright orangey sun, the green fields, the very blue waters and sky, it is indeed very different from the city life. i have even considered living in this place for good already. that is how awesome tagaytay is. we stayed at taal vista for the night and i should say, that that hotel is highly recommended. just look at the wonderful scenic view from our room. not to mention the coolness of the wind during nighttime. (aghh i don't wanna go back to reality anymore)

mother taught us the yoga poses. never knew yoga was quite tough, ey?

attention! guys! miss pauline here. saying that sonya's garden is a must-go destination. this secret garden has been our garden for years now. everytime we go to tagay, we can never not go here. the breads in their panaderia are fantastic. my fave is the hispanish bread. you've seriously got to try that one. 

there is the panaderia!! there is the panaderia!!

mmmhmmm can you now smell the fragrance of the organic flowers and coffee beans? cause i can. hahaha. this place is an excellent source of relaxation. and going with your family makes it an excellent source of sparkles too. truly blessed. praise our everlasting Father!X

 

ps: i want to watch she's the one and thor2 so badly. any reviews/critics?

LE SALT & PEPPER PROJECT

0:1

terrific place. delicious food not to mention that they are organic. great service. what else could we ask for? green pastures is a sure thumbs up! even zomato says so in here. located at the 4th floor east wing of shangri-la edsa plaza, mandaluyong city, Philippines.

i couldn't be more excited about this new project that i have long wanted to do but couldn't bring myself to in fear of failure. but challenge is now accepted. let me first introduce to you guys, le salt & pepper project. my experiences with restaurants to help promote a healthy diet plus new discoveries or rather, adventures with your family and friends in town. my family is a little bit conscious when it comes to food. unhealthy and unappealing not only to the eyes but also to our bellies is a total thumbs down. the place do matters a lot too. and so i've decided to share food that me and my family approve of. health is wealth, really. it's a lot of photographs when all is said and done.

ZUMBA

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.

ANSWERED PRAYER

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) 


ma'am Virginia was sharing about her answered prayers and real-life experiences while we-Bel, Nic and I..we didn't want to interrupt her but we were actually very worried about our kidneys. they were about to explode in no time. we just HAD to use the bathroom already. at that moment (as ma'am Virginia taught us to pray specifically inside your heart if you can't say it out verbally) i tried her teaching. i prayed inside my heart, asked the Lord to give us a kidney-saver and let that person knock at the door. when suddenly i heard the door outside our small room open. there was a kid looking at the other room across our LKM room, and then he suddenly peeked over our room. i was still talking to our heavenly Father at that moment. praying for that lil' guy to be "the one". it was very funny and impossible to me not until he knocked. at that instant, my eyes, heart and smile glowed warmly. i looked up and thought like the picture below. it was indeed, an answered prayer.

i knew from that moment that i had to share this experience with you guys. i have peace in God. and you can have to. ask, and it shall be given. pretend that you have received it and it shall be yours. have faith in Him. our Father is good. and He loves us so much. appreciation over expectation. sweetest dreams!X

 

what challenges or experiences are you going through right now? wanna share them?...thank you for sharing!

 

footnote: this story was also shared at Bel's. great blog! check it out.

ENCHANTED KINGDOM

we went to Enchanted Kingdom today and it was awe....wait for it....some. (yup. i just watched how i met your mother and that show is highly contagious.) we rode almost all the rides, well except for the kiddie rides..i highly recommend space shuttle. that is the best ride so far. then the Ekstreme. one of my faves as well. it reminds me of that wonderful feeling after i rode the tower of terror 1 & 2 in the states-which is my fave ride from all the amusement parks i've been to.

what to wear in an amusement park? no biggie. just choose something where you feel really comfortable and there you have it. don't forget to wear sneakers or flat sandals, you don't want to miss out all the fun due to your aching heels, don't you?

Kyna calls me Pole, that's the second reason why i wrote northpole in this picture. the main reason is basically because the place looks like northpole. especially with those fake snow. Kyna, A.K.A. Pineapple, as i call her, is hanging on the southpole (HAHAHAHAHA it's not super corny, guys!) which is not seen in the picture.........who took this pic again? and have you met Nichole? (HIMYM a-gain!) Nic is our mighty volleyball varsity team captain. she is amazeballs, guys. notice our white & black caps and nails. and how magazine-models-savvy do we look like in this picture?

i love the blue floor so much. and it is so biiiig. huhu i cry./maybe i should just make my future bedroom painted pure blue all around.

morning in an amusement park is pretty. but when nighttime comes, it becomes beautiful. the lights are so bright and purdyy that they shine. shining, shimmering, splendid. aha!

i can hardly believe that our sunday is almost over. but we will surely have more adventures in the future. these guys are crazy fun. they have stayed with me in my roller coaster rides of not only today but since high school. i can't thank them enough. praise the Lord for these little monkeys. 

one last thing. when you are scared of the rides, don't be. God is with you. He is in control. We were walking down the streets of the park when suddenly my good sis, Pineapple, told me this-"He's smiling at us now, Pole." i cannot remove this saying from my mind for it has  already sunked deeply in my heart already. that saying is simply....striking. so i'd like to share with everyone my experience and Kyna's reminder. God is our Father. and He loves us so dearly. after you have made a difference to a person's life, whether it may be small or big, you'd be thinking about this saying. and i know that right now our Father is watching over us, smiling.

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! :)

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.)

Lauren wore:

THEATRICAL PLAY

092813. 

 

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.

OH JOE!
OH JOE!

my kaloka-like when smiling, Zaila. isn't she lovely? #justlikeme

backstage with Maan, Angela and Ira.

ACTION!

 

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.

CCF

090113.

 
It's the first day of September today! Oh goodness! The days are passing by real quick. Which is why we have to act quickly as well. Today, the fambam attended the Christian Community Fellowship, or the CCF at Ortigas Ave, near Tiendesitas., Greenhills. Oh how peaceful the feeling is every time I go to CCF.

You guys should check them out at CCF. I assure you the feeling of inner peace and happiness with Him. :) 
The crowd, the singspirations, the message, and not to mention the venue is massive and full of love. Praise the Lord! CCF has services for free every Sunday at 9AM, 12noon, and 3PM. Bring a jacket with you! Their air conditioners are max-ed! 
We then headed straight to BGC after the worship service. Our bellies are now starving to death and so we chose the Spanish restaurant, Las flores. Their place is full of dimmed lights and is absolutely perfect for a dinner date! Too good we were having a family dinner. Heehee!

ROAD TRIPPIN'

082413.

 
After a week of exams and midterms, we finally decided to reunite (for it is Lauren's buuuurthday the next daaay!:>) and go to a road trip with our high school friends. Tagaytay was such a lovely place and I would always breathe deep when we go there. You have to make the most out of that place..especialy when you're with your friends. 
The call time was supposedly 8 in the morning but because of NO-PRESSURE after our pressured-week day, we left home at 10:30 AM. After all, it is the road trip that's supposed to be focused on, right? Reaching Tagaytay at noon time isn't really a good idea, (so I suggest that all those who'd be road tripping with your homies better take off early), we ate at Breakfast at Antonio's and though the price was kiiiiinda high, it was worth it! Lovely desserts, lovely food, and terrific place! I highly recommended this restaurant, guys! Just don't forget to bring some cash!
First stop: Antonio's at Breakfast

We then tried this new amusement park, SKY RANCH. It was kinda small but going to an amusement park with your friends is beyond enjoyable! 
Next stop: Sky Ranch
