10.06.14: Of ramen and tea
Hello, dolls!!! 🙂 Hello, Vancouver!! Aaah I can’t believe that this is really happening!! After having an amazing and busy weekend with A,we are now on our way to Manila. As what A said “it is our most memorable trip to Manila”. It is definitely a trip of a lifetime because it will be the first time that our families will be together. Anyway, we have less than an hour left here in Vancouver until our plane leaves for Manila, hopefully that will be enough time for me to publish this one before all the craziness begin when we arrive home.
Today, we experienced a couple of firsts together. It’s our first time to travel to Manila together (this is A’s third time in MNL). Also, our first time to fly out of JFK. Thank God that our flag carried, Philippine Airlines, started flying to Manila from New York 2 weeks ago! We were very excited about this when they broke the news last year, no more loooong layovers, exhausting connecting flights,and worrying about our baggage!
Oh,we have so much love for New York! So let me share with you A’s birthday celebration in New York last year 🙂
One of the things that I love about A is how it’s not very hard to put a smile on his face.
He appreciates everything even the simplest form of gesture.
So what better way to make my birthday boy happy? A trip to New York to eat ramen 🙂 Continue reading “New York Diaries: Ivan Ramen”
10.05.13: Good Morning, Birthday Boy 🙂
Hello, dolls! 🙂 3 years ago, October to me was just the month before my birthday, or my Mom’s birthday month,but since her birthday falls on the first week of October, I deliberately forget the month’s essence right after.. HA. Tomorrow is A’s birthday, and before I get anxious about my birthday surprise for him, I will share with you snippets from his birthday last year. I don’t know how I will be able to top his food adventure filled celebration in Hong Kong but thank heavens for giving me 3 days to give him a memorable one this year. Hint: we will be away from Baltimore again!!! (yay!)
Good Morning, Hong Kong! Good Morning, Birthday Boy!!! <3
Can I wake up in Asia again? Soon?
First Stop for A’s Birthday: Harbour City
This mall is too gorgeous for words! All the good stores (and when I say good, I mean high-end designer brands) are here…but since our Hong Kong trip was all about food, I had to stop myself from dragging A to stores that will take our time from visiting restaurants.Don’t worry, he gave me all the time in the world during our recent trip to Bangkok! 🙂
The main reason why we went to Harbour City, Laduree. Continue reading “Hong Kong Diary: Best Macarons in Hong Kong (Laduree, Jean-Paul Hevin, TWG)”
Hello,dolls!! 🙂 I can’t believe that April is almost coming to an end!!! It has been an amazing month and I am looking forward to the amazing things that we have planned for May 2014. Though I hate to see the loveliest month of the year leave, I am excited that in 4 months I will be with my family again!!! We have planned so much for my return and aaaaaah I can’t wait to travel and be with my favorite piggies again!!
So this the continuation (sort of) of my major throwback post 3 days ago.
Maxi skirts/dresses makes me feel pretty without being too girly.
I hate”d” wearing pants. I used to wear them a lot when I was younger but everyone thought I was a tomboy or something so I had to do some MAJOR makeover and yeaaap a few years after here I am now, posting a fashion entry on my blog.

Hello, dolls! 🙂 It’s #tbt time, the time when the universe makes it acceptable for me to post entries that are 3 months overdue. This week, I feel like I have time on my hands. Though, I must admit, it is not how I want it to be. My face is still swollen and I am saving Manila from seeing another jeje-face so I am locking myself up in this room until my face gets visibly better. (#MaarteGirlProblems).
I am milk “tea” lover, I love it so much that during my first 13 months in the US, I would die every time A would get me a milk tea (or should I say 2 large taro milk teas!). I never appreciated drinking hot tea alone, until we had afternoon tea with his Mom. For the past years, I would always try to add sugar, honey, or milk on mine. Up to the point that it loses its original flavor already (yikes). So yeah, that afternoon made me fall in love with tea all over again.
A introduced me to afternoon/high tea, and I introduced him to…. TWG <3
