OUTFIT: Boyfriend Shirt

With the summer heat, I just wanted to wear something cool and not clingy to the body. I have been eyeing on getting myself a boyfriend shirt. Perfect timing! My brother was giving away his old polo shirts. And of course, I took advantage!

Now I have not just one, but three boyfriend shirts (er, technically, it's brother's shirts. Haha.)

Accessorize with a belt to put in a little curve
This is what I wore on Black Saturday

Bisita Iglesia

For two years now, we had our Bisita Iglesia on Good Friday morning instead of thursday evening to avoid the traffic and the crowd (but personally, I prefer Holy Thursday as the decorations on the Altar of Repose are more dramatic at night.)

So here are the churches we visited.

Alliance of Two Hearts

Our Lady of the Sacred Heart (Capitol Parish)

St. Jude Thaddeus Chapel (Camp Lapu-lapu)

St. Therese Parish
Redemptorist Church
St. Francis Xavier Chapel

Here is one interesting decoration on the ceiling of one chapel:

Yes, those are "pusos" (hanging rice).
Here's what I wore:
Top: SM Dept.
High-waist city shorts: Meg
Belt: gift
Bag: Nine West
Sandals: Celine

The birthday girl-- Alexa

The other birthday girl-- moi!

Cakes galore! thank you to our dear friends.

Our fave people in the world!

Since we move around basically the same circle of friends, Alexa and I decided to have a joint birthday celebration. Our birthdays are one week apart, but our age is ----- okay, I am older by a year (no point of denying. Haha).

Incidentally, one of our closest friends celebrates her wedding anniversary on Alexa's birthday (Happy First Mai and Jarred!). Hence, the title-- Celebrations!

Cheers to life, friendship and love!

Who let the bangs out?

For 28 years, my hair has been straight and save for my kindergarten years where my mother experimented on my hair with the "bunot" look, it has pretty much been the same boring hairstyle (boring, imagine 28 years?!) So, I wanted to have curls. But the hairstylists were honest enough to tell me that once I'll have my hair permed, it will regularly need hair treatment to prevent it from becoming too dry and brittle. With so many payables, I could not afford the hair maintenance. Hence, the bangs. I wanted change. So here is the change. Haha.

My husband and I were getting tired of dining in the usual restaurants (i.e. those that are conveniently located inside the mall). So, we are in search for restos that have a unique or quaint ambience. The risks of not being satisfied with the food or getting hold-up by the prices or being discontented with the service are natural consequences of this food-tripping (rather, resto-searching).

First stop-- ABASERIA. (Actually, we've discovered other restos before this, but I wasn't into blogging then and I was not able to take much pictures. But I vowed to myself that I will visit each of them again, for blog purposes.)

Once-full-now-empty dining area (we were the last ones to go)
Wide array of native products to choose from (Yep, they are selling these stuffs)

On the other side of that wall is a little function room cum bazaar of colorful native accessories.
Exclusive dining area with native accessories on the side for sale

Native wooden products also for sale

We were right away impressed with the cozy feel of the place. But we were more impressed with the service. The attendant (whom I believe was the owner) was kind enough to inform us that they have half-orders, since some of their servings are good for 3-4 persons.

The food? Ah, yes. I have to make a disclaimer at this point. I am not a very good food critic, since I don't eat as much vegetables as what a healthy person should eat and I don't enjoy as much eating seafoods. For a very picky person like me, the food as beyond great. Here's what we had:

Monggo with gata (half-order)

Crispy roasted pork (half-order)

Chicken curry (with pineapple something2x-- sorry I forgot the name,
but believe me, it added a more tangy taste to the curry)

The 'look' of satisfied customers :-)
Suggestion: Make a reservation, lest you'll end up table-less.

My rating: Outstanding (4/5)

Next visit: Soon!!! And I'll make sure to shop for some accessories.
