A Bridal Sparty at Pink Me Up.

Like I mentioned in a previous post, my good friend Ivy Hayagan is getting married soon! So maid of honor Mina Seguerra and secondary sponsor Nadine Cuisia arranged a sparty last Friday at Pink Me Up.

My New Toy.

This is how my blogging area used to look like.


Cafe 1771 in El Pueblo.

Out of the few Christmas dinners T and I were able to go to this year (busy work schedule!), I'm glad one of them was in Cafe 1771.  I've dined in three 1771 restaurants: Chateau 1771 (Greenbelt 5), Sentro 1771 (Serendra Fort), and Cafe 1771 (El Pueblo). But Cafe 1771 is my favorite because of its look.

Morelli's Gelato.

Since I've been cutting on my sugar intake for the last couple of months (save for a couple of hot fudge sundaes from McDonald's that I couldn't resist), I missed eating ice cream and other forms of sugary goodness. So before watching the Swedish House Mafia, I asked T if we could have gelato at Morelli's.

Swedish House Mafia: Live in Manila!

I knew T wanted to see the Swedish House Mafia because this might be their last performance ever. But we never talked about actually going so I just went on with my day. Imagine my surprise when T called and said that we were watching that night (read my blog post about the MOA Arena).

"What? But I'm wearing a sundress!", I said.

Hacienda Isabella.

One of my dearest friends from college, Ara Sam, wanted to celebrate her birthday somewhere in Tagaytay. She first suggested Sonya's Garden (read my blog post on Sonya's Garden) and I usually would have said yes since it's one of my favorite places. But I see these friends of mine only once or twice a year so I wanted to try something new with them.

I then went through my list of places that I wanted to try with T and suggested Hacienda Isabella to Ara.

The King & I: Extended Until May 2013.

The "King & I" was supposed to be only until December 2012 but Resorts World Manila extended it until May of this year!

Star Movies Cafe and Restaurant.

I've always had a penchant for themed restaurants like Hard Rock Cafe or Planet Hollywood (read my blog post about Planet Hollywood Guam). So when T told me about the newly-opened Star Movies Cafe along Mall of Asia, I told him I wanted to go eat there despite having an upset stomach.

Starbucks' Double Sticker Planner Promo.

Most of you have probably claimed your Starbucks' planners already but for those who haven't yet (or for fans who want to collect all colors), here's a bit of good news.

From January 7 to 9, Starbucks is giving 2 stickers for every purchase of a handcrafted beverage.
