The day of Christening for my Godson Fritz Andrei, isn’t he the cutest? Like an angel with those chubby cheeks, curly hair, fair complexion and that sweet smile.

Reception was held at Kanluban Resort in Cavite. Resort---it only means one thing... swimming time! Yeah!

Would i pass the chance of having a picture taken? No! And so I did! Thank you my dear cousin Regine for bearing with your Ate’s kaartehan. Haha
 
 
Last January I spent my weekend with my boyfriend and his cousins at Baguio City! Armed with food, pillows and a comfortable seat, we were ready for the 7 hour road trip. Well natulog lang naman kami haha. Finally we made touchdown by midday at the Cathedral and met with my boyfriend’s uncle.

Now its market time! Wet market, I mean... bought fresh produce, meat, fish and the entire hullabaloo for our 3 day vacation. Prices are very low especially for fruits and vegetables! Yum!

By dinner time we went to 50’s Diner, found at 92 Upper General Luna Road, Corner Brent Road. Hence the name of the food chain, its themed like diners in the 50’s, with posters of stars at that time. They have affordable meals, big serving and MILK SHAKE!!! But... when we got there the place was jam packed! I mean like literal sardines in a can! The place was full of locals and tourists and we had to wait for 45 minutes for a table. Good thing is that they take our orders first and as soon as we get seated everything is ready to serve. And when i said they have BIG servings i was not joking. The meal i ordered for my boyfriend was GINORMOUS! I thought it was only a 3 layered sandwich, it was 3 layers alright, but they didn’t say the bread was 2 inches thick! My boyfriend did not finish it, he barely ate it! He said he was overwhelmed and lost his appetite! Boo for that. I’d give 50’s Diner 2.5 out of 5. Service was poor, some food weren’t served. For the taste, it’s generally good and I loved their chocolate milk shake
Beside 50’s Diner is a bar named Red Lion’s Pub. Had drinks by the cliff side which was a wrong move! It was so freakin’ cold! I was only wearing tights and shorts! Hahaha fail! It was a good thing that the pub lets customers borrow their wool blanket, well for snuggling ^_^.

The next day we were off to Philippine Military Academy, grabbed the opportunity to take some lookbook photos. Thanks to my boyfriend <3

MINE’S VIEW and GOOD SHEPHERD – pasalubong time!

Okay, Good Shepherd is so famous for its pasalubong like Ube, Strawberry Jams, cookies, lengua and the likes and for this reason bongga ang traffic! Naman! So we had to walk, yes you read that right! WALK! But it didn’t stop us! I just had to buy Ube Jam for my family, it’s one our favourite treats. And of course since its traffic the line at their store was long. An upside, they have a lot of counters so many people were served at a time. 
Before heading to Mines View Park we got to taste Baguio’s Strawberry taho. Two thumbs up for the taste. 
Picture
That tree was hit by a lighting and now the people of Baguio are turning this into a Tiki post... cool eh?
Hello Mines View Park! Took pictures, sightseeing and oh! We took a picture with a St. Bernard!!! It was huge and has heavy paws! Hahaha 
Picture
my boyfriend took these photos. ^_^
Next destination – PIZZA VOLANTE. It’s a small pizzeria found at 82 Session Rd. The food was a little bit pricey for the taste. More seasoning on the dough could’ve made the taste better. Some of the pastas we order weren’t that good. Fail. I’d rate the joint 2 out of 5.
More of that shopping please! Burnham Park’s night market, the ukay-ukay, souvenirs and the likes! I bought a vintage Piero Guidi leather bucket bag for only 150php; it was in good shape, no damages at all! A very good find... Hooray for me! We went on with our shopping “spree” (spree-meaning buying only 2 items according to my boyfriend haha), I also bought another bag, a Cat Kidson floral bag with a vintage look. Pretty cute! As the night progress it began to get colder and colder, my boyfriend then bought a cute beanie, how adorable!
Picture
He bought the blue beanie. He obviously didn't like the white one haha
A warm cup of coffee for the cold heart. We went to a pretty creepy place for a cup of Starbucks. It was probably the most remote place you’ll ever see a Starbucks joint, inside a forest! Hahaha joke! Di naman siya forest... it’s actually a camp, Camp John Hay. We sat outside, enduring the cold breeze, talking and watching youtube videos. Too bad Starbucks there doesn’t offer wool blanket, it was perfect cuddle weather. 

You’re the STRAW to my BERRY – Strawberry Farm yippee! Us early birdies set off to strawberry farm to pick some strawberries and veggies. The site was so overwhelmingly fascinating! Lots of fruits and vegetables, cheapest ones too! I love it there... 10php for a bunch of lettuce and if you buy 10 they’ll give you 1 for free! Also bought broccoli, baby potatoes and STRAWBERRY of course! And while walking inside the farm we tasted Baguio’s special and super yummy strawberry ice cream.

Aww see you soon Baguio! Butas bulsa naming sa iyo haha! Before heading back to Manila, a good friend of my boyfriend’s uncle invited us to his restaurant to get a taste of his entire specialty; soup #5, bulalo, sisig, chopsuey and liempo. Blogging this is making me hungry haha. And then after 7 hours, were back to reality. 
It was definitely a fun-filled weekend. 'Till next time Baguio City!

xoxo J

As the "Ber-month" arrived everyone's been busy buying gift for their loved ones. Since  I've been busy with work I got caught up with the Christmas shopping rush at World Trade Center with friends. It was tiring but it was all worth it. I gave myself a pat on the back because normally when I go shopping I tend to buy things for myself but this time I was able to buy gifts for almost all of the people on my list. Yey me!

Simbang Gabi. 3/9

Well I was planning to complete the 9 days of Simbang gabi but unfortunately I wasn’t able to because of the changing schedules at work but at least I got 3 out of 9 instead of 0 out of 9.
Christmas Eve. We have a secret Santa... a.k.a. MONITO-MONITA. My nephew was my secret Santa; he gave me towels and a pillow case with my name written on it. How cool is that?
I picked my sister and the only thing on her wish list was a planner from Starbucks, my dilemma was that I wasn’t gonna' be able to get enough stickers before January, luckily I did. Thanks to the kind man in front of me who gave 4 stickers away! ^_^ 

My family and I spent Christmas Eve at the comfort of out small house. Attended the mass before the Noche Buena and now its gift giving time!!! Yehey! I’m not really excited on receiving gifts; I’m more excited on giving gifts! I bought a gift for each of my family members and relatives. I also love wrapping that’s why I love gift giving... he-he it’s a nice feeling when you see the person you’re giving with a smile on their faces once they receive it no matter what the gift is or its price. It was really a very happy moment. Oh! And I got the best gift ever! MY FAMILY ^_^

New Year’s Eve. I have work! I know it’s supposed to be a bummer, but no... Last year I also spent my new year’s eve at work and it was fun! Aside from the blood and greatly wounded hands, it was over all FUN! And this year was the same... fireworks, Media Noche, bonding with co-workers over a little booze (I know what you’re thinking... we’re not supposed to drink inside the hospital but yeah we did and it was awesome! He-he) I looked forward to a new year with a different mindset. I’m so excited and I know it’s going to be my year.

Oh and by the way, you might be wondering why I’m in a hospital it’s because I’m a nurse, but after the medications given and patients taken cared for, I still have the inner artist in me. I love fashion and everything in it, the art that it represents the different styles, trends and the people in front and behind the industry. It serves as my artistic outlet. Without it I’m nothing, with it I can be anything I want. My style is not a single note; it’s a combination of different notes that forms into a rock star symphony. I’m a self proclaimed designer, dressmaker and photographer. I love how fashion can inspire the young and the young at heart and hopefully I can inspire others as well. So here’s a toast to a wonderful year ahead of us!
