121217 It’s very easy to spot the real models here from those who work behind the scenes, isn’t it? πŸ˜‚ This afternoon was the shoot for an upcoming launch of something exciting by @tatahcostales. My lips are sealed for now, but I could hardly wait. Just check out her shops’ IG accounts for more info at @ateclothier and @ate_clothing. via Tumblr

120317 When it’s Sunday, it’s morning Mass together and practically nonstop eating with both extended families and in-laws. Factor in the month of December with all the birthdays and Christmas parties, thus this 🐷😜 via Tumblr

120317 We were classmates and friends since grade school and we last saw each other in 2010 for our 25th high school reunion. She’s been based in the UK since 2002 but thanks to social media, we didn’t have to wonder what the other has been up to. Despite their tight schedule, it was really lovely to have been able to touch base again. I sure hope we see each other soon in tropical Cebu, or perhaps in cold UK. ♥️ via Tumblr

120217 Day 2, like day 1, didn’t come easy. It took a lot of hemming and hawing before I pulled myself out of bed to prepare for a brief walk. I took the inner route while hubby brisk-walked on the longer path. So far my numbers are ok, except for cholesterol which is slightly over the limit. *Sigh*. Being 50 is not just about going through mood swings and hot flashes. Weight gain due to hormonal and metabolic changes is a real concern as well. Keeping fit feels like an uphill battle. The struggle is real. The only thought that kept me going this morning was to burn last night’s ramen dinner. via Tumblr

113017 Nephew woke up early to say he wanted the holiday longer. Then he proceeded to ask his grandma if they were going somewhere. Ma and I immediately planned a little something to fill the one day school break - an afternoon of swimming and pizza. Seeing him having fun with our Jake and wolfing down half of the pizza, I hope we granted nephew’s wish. via Tumblr

112917 We were treated to lunch by my maternal aunt and family who were also at mass earlier. The resto of choice was the Suite Room where we enjoyed having their salmon and green tea ice cream among other things. The place was packed even at 130pm that we had to occupy 2 separate tables. ☺️ So much for bonding… It’s been a while since we last ate here and it looked the same as before, though older and in urgent need of a renovation IMHO. Other than that, food was good and I will probably go back for the green tea ice cream. via Tumblr

112917 When Ma texted me this morning that they were hearing mass at Oakridge at 1215pm, I decided to join them. We could have lunch together afterwards, I thought. It’s always a good thing spending time with them and doing things together like hearing mass or sharing a meal. So here’s a photo we snapped before mass started. via Tumblr

112717 This morning, our breakfast consisted of tomato soup, grilled cheese sandwich and water infused with lemon essential oil. We haven’t done this in weeks due to schedules. It was good to alternately exchange updates and watch streaming Ms. Universe. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜† via Tumblr

112517 Pa said I should make sure the name Eduardo (his namesake) was very clear in the background. 🀣 Pa and Ma joined us in getting our Jake from school today. He was there with his classmates to prepare and set up of booths and decors for tomorrow’s Christmas fair. via Tumblr

112517 We particularly loved our sweet and sour pugapo and nilagang baka lunch today, because we felt deprived eating salad the day before. via Tumblr

111917 Sunday dinner… This day also marked the 2nd time our nephew received Holy Communion. Because he studies at Abbas Montessori where they do not prepare Catholics for this 2nd sacrament of initiation after Baptism, he had to attend a special Catechism class outside of school on his own schedule for several consecutive Sundays. His actual 1st Communion was last Wednesday during the 1215pm mass at St. Therese Church. via Tumblr
