LOSING "ROGER" -- MY FAVORITE SECRET ADMIRER.


Now how do I start?

Well first of all. This is one post I NEVER wanted to do. Writing an entry would just confirm it. But I just have all these thoughts in my head and aches in my heart that I want to let out. And it was all caused by losing a VERY great man.




I am not going to enumerate his many academic and professional accomplishments because doing so would just put him on some sort of level and make him comparable to other people. He had so much (even with his humble beginnings) but these were not the only reasons why he was well loved and respected. Instead, I'll just share why he was (or is??) somebody so special to us and to the many people he had helped. Because really, titles, awards, and accolades that he received were one thing (and he had many!), at the end of the day, what matters most was how he was ALWAYS there for me, the family, and his relatives.

+++++++

Here are some of my loving memories of him in no particular order. I know I won't remember all of it because we have a lot...

HOUSE OF WAGYU FOR OUR BIRTHDAYS (2017)


I think it's no secret how much we love HOUSE OF WAGYU STONE GRILL. For us, it's the "BESTEST" and "ULTIMATE-EST" steak place in Manila. That's why when they had a promo in some of their Wagyu sets, we immediately sped off to Greenhills like how the Roadrunner would with a matching "Meep! Meep!" Their steaks are just so darn good and the service, superkaduper impeccable.

That's why there's no question why during my BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS, we included HOUSE OF WAGYU in the list.

BUT.... There's also another reason for it.

What it is? Find out below.

Dan! Dan! Daaaaan!

METROCLUB DINNER FOR MY 42ND BIRTHDAY (2017)


Another delicious treat that I received for my 42nd BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS was from my dear Best Gal Pal Mariane in our favorite, THE METRO CLUB in Rockwell, Makati City. Although I have to admit, the conversation went on like this...

Me: "BGP, treat me naman in Metro Club for my birthday o!"

BGP Mariane : "Okay!!! :)"

Tee Hee!!!!

That's the thing about having best friends: you could just blurt out whatever you're feeling (and wishing) without fear of being embarrassed or judged. Because you have already seen each other's best and worst.

And trust me, there are far more worst things that my BGP Mariane caught me doing rather than a mere (and cute) "Treat me!" He he he he he he!

Oh and it's my BOITHDAY anyway! So there.

Yep! She has seen my "brattiness" also.

He he he he he!  




ERICJAZ FOODIES with bunsoy Andrei and Team Mina at METRO CLUB!!!!



It was very late when we arrived in METRO CLUB so it's a good thing that their cafe was open till 11:00pm.

CIBO FOR MY 42ND BIRTHDAY (2017)



When I was asked by my friends how I wanted to celebrate my birthday with them, I only had request...

For everyone to be there.

(Well I also requested for Villa Escudero, but yippy skip, plans went pffftttt).

Anywho, given the choice, no couples night or ladies only gimik for me. I would always be ultra happy with my friends and seeing my little lords having fun with their other good buddies as well.

So really, even if Villa Escudero didn't push through, I still had an awesome birthday with the people whom I also treat like family. More so that we had it in one of my favorite restaurants in Powerplant Mall, CIBO!!!!

Wala sa Villa Escudero niyan!!!!!!!!!!




CIBO!!!!



Wohooo!!! I'm having my 32nd birthday (ahem) with my favorite Italian food!

OUR INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION (2017)

THE YAPPY BUNCH are celebrating the INDEPENDENCE DAY and like what we do every year, we want it to be something educational for the little lords. I actually had something else planned but it did not push through because of distance and traffic matters. We then decided to just go somewhere which has already been like a "comfort venue" for us because I always trust that we will all have a great time for the full day's activities.

And that place is MANILA.


Artikulo Uno!!!! (Wrong caption I know but I cannot help it sorry.)

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY from a very serious YAPPY BUNCH!!!

Yes. We take our holidays SERIOUSLY.




We woke up extra early that Saturday morning because we wanted to get an early start!

We love going to Manila on our "educational days" because you'll find there many museums and venues that showcase the "old Philippines". Besides giving the little lords an outing that would be pocket-friendly for us practical parents, the experience would be much more memorable because they will also be learning about significant Philippine historical events.

Now ain't that perfektow mundo for the Independence Day???

There is indeed nothing like having a field trip with the family!!!!!

LE PETIT SOUFFLE FOR MY 42ND BIRTHDAY (2017)


Many times I've seen LE PETIT SOUFFLE invade my Facebook and Instagram feed with its mouth-watering pictures of their dishes. And many times, I would mentally schedule dinner there with the Chinese Dimpol. Good thing that for my birthday season, my mareng Gail asked me where I wanted to go for her dinner treat. Without batting an eyelash (but with pa-cute efforts), I immediately chose LE PETIT SOUFFLE because well, the timing was JUUUUUST right.

YAY! I was able to discover what those picture-perfect Facebook and IG posts were all about. And yep, it was SO perfect for my birthday dinner date with Team Campo!




LE PETIT SOUFFLE!!!




LE PETIT SOUFFLE is located at the second floor of SM Megamall's Fashion Hall. You'd never miss the sign with the bright canary yellow colors!
