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. http://ift.tt/2AwkKdZ via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2z31Rgc

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 🐷😜 http://ift.tt/2zYt6dX via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2BHmQ7u

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. ♥️ http://ift.tt/2A0LLFX via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2ArG80w

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. http://ift.tt/2AD0PZW via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2izxatL

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. http://ift.tt/2AtcbQ7 via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2kc8YhB

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. http://ift.tt/2Aj6otS via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2zPcSE4

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. http://ift.tt/2AGbpjb via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2AGTzN0

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˜† http://ift.tt/2BpnZR4 via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2i9ch8A

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. http://ift.tt/2n21Vcj via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2A9uG9F

112517 We particularly loved our sweet and sour pugapo and nilagang baka lunch today, because we felt deprived eating salad the day before. http://ift.tt/2BluMv2 via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2jniREX

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. http://ift.tt/2AVyytZ via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2ivDdw4
