Another music monday! Moon River is definitely my most favorite song of all time. While I love the original, I have a lot of covers in my ipod and I am always on the look out for beautiful covers.
Here is a lovely rendition by The Honey Trees.
Have a good week everyone!
There has to be a moment at the beginning when you wonder whether you’re in love with the person or in love with the feeling of love itself.
If the moment doesn’t pass, that’s it - you’re done.
And if the moment does pass, it never goes that far. It stands in the distance, ready for whenever you want it back. Sometimes it’s even there when you thought you were searching for something else, like an escape route, or your lover’s face.
biking with style

Biker chics on the streets! See you don’t need to resort to wearing lycra biker/cycling shorts especially when you are biking for leisure, work or errands.
Now, if only our weather and streets were more biker friendly, I would buy myself a bike and ride with style to do errands or simply for the fun of it.Cheaper na environment friendly pa.
But wait, I do have a couple of pics with bikes, both not working though haha.
And speaking of bikes, have you seen the latest pics from the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show? One of the angels walked the runway with a fake bike. Ma-connect lang sa post :P
music monday: death cab for cutie’s cover of christmas (baby please come home)
Christmas is almost here! :) I’m starting to update my christmas playlist and just added this cover to the list.
What’s in your holiday playlist?
DIY flower girl baskets
In keeping with the fairy woodland theme of the wedding, I used wicker baskets, moss, fern leaves and butterflies - all fake of course. Fresh petals will be added on the big day for the little girls to throw along their way.
Before - the baskets were varnished for the rustic effect
After - presenting, my obra :)
All three baskets done!
This is just one of the many DIYs for the wedding. Here are the others, done by my bestfriend and her sister.
Bouquet for the entourage
Headdress for the bridesmaids
Ring and Arrhae Bed
DIYs are not only cheaper but are also fun to do :)
So I’m 29! It’s amazing how fast time flies by when you’re enjoying life. Amidst all the challenges and problems, I am still grateful for all the blessings that God has given me.
And since this is my last year as a twenty-something, I would like to share 29 things I think should be part of my life’s milestone for the last decade going through adulthood. Siempre not necessarily in any order.

down memory lane
Took advantage of the Oct 26 holiday last week for a quick getaway to Tagaytay with my girlfriends at work. It was Franz’s (who hails from Agusan) first time in Tagaytay so we were really hoping for a good weather. It was a foggy morning due to typhoon Ofel but glad we still pushed through since the sun went out in the afternoon.
We had lunch at Memory Lane which is a diner/gift shop/salon owned by Jolina Magdangal’s family. It was all our first time there. The whole place exudes a homey ambience sans the picturesque backdrop of Tagaytay since it is situated in one of the residential areas in the city far from the panoramic view of Taal.
O di ba, ready na for trick or treat!
Country style with lots of vintage items ang peg ng place.
Super like the chandelier
Jolina must be a fan of Audrey too (or ung nanay nya? :P)
There’s a gift shop inside where you can buy vintage looking items (for sure hindi un mga vintage), decors, toys etc.
There’s also a salon pero parang wala namang nagpapasalon so we just played around.
And now to the diner part.
It was jampacked inside so we just had our lunch on the front porch. Again, hindi winner ang food. I think it’s expensive for something that is not really gastronomically satisfying. Kaya tinamad na kong kumuha ng pictures. But just for fyi, we had their breakfast meals - fried tawilis, adobong batangas, corned beef.
Had a good laugh reading the signs and posters so I took pictures of some of them. Aliw lang.
After brunch, we headed to Picnic Grove so Franz could see a better view of Tagaytay. Our bunso was all giddy at the sight of Taal volcano.
We didn’t have enough time to go around the city since we had separate engagements in the afternoon but we promised Franz (na nabitin for sure) we’ll go back soon.
denim on denim
Outfit post for Undas. Not really a fan of denim on denim but hey this is my only jacket with hood and with the cold weather in Antipolo, I have to wear something that will not only keep me warm but will also keep me from getting sick (hello colds!).
Aside from chikahan and lafangan, the kids (mostly my nephews and nieces) and I spent a lot of time camwhoring :p
