Of Weddings, Updates and Food Ventures

I love the weekends and other new experiences! Not only does it give us a fresh take on things and a brand new perspective in life on a general note it also energizes our spirit. I love the weekends since you can relax, unwind and do your other recreational activities to feed your mind, body and soul which you cannot normally pay attention to during the course of the week since it is filled with meetings here and there and loads of other pertinent stuff to do.

So without further ado, here’s what I’ve been up to the past few weeks. šŸ™‚

Best in gown BB Pilipinas 2015I just recently attended the pre- pageant night for the Bb. Pilipinas 2015 contenders at the Araneta stadium. It was definitely fun watching 34 of the most beautiful ladies in our land walk down the runway in their very own national costumes. Despite vying for one crown as the grand winner everyone was very amicable and all smiles as the cameras took their photos.

We also attended the wedding of P’s childhood friend Jobert who tied the knot just recently at the Sanctuario De San Jose parish with his beautiful long time girlfriend Gianna.

Bb. Pilipinas 2015 Best in Long Gown Winners

Last week I was accorded the rare privilege to witness the Bb. Pilipinas 2015 pre pageant, thanks to Sir Eli for the invite. I was in awe as the 34 candidates for the much awaited and highly anticipated event of the year especially for talent managers, fashion and beauty enthusiasts and our very own highly skilled fashion designers who took time to painstakingly sew and embroider their latest creations as our beauties donned the beautifully created gowns and strutted with grace across the runway to showcase their beauty, grace and give justice to the gowns.

To have a general view of what I’m talking about. Here’s a quick video of who won the best in National Costume amongst the 34 lovely lads. Credits to Mr. Ted Claudio for this video.

Movie Review: That thing called Tadhana

Since it has been the talk of the town for weeks now since it came out at the cinemas. People couldn’t stop commenting on how true to life the scenes were and how well everything was well played and portrayed on the silver screen. I wanted to see for myself on how true these allegations were about this indie film by Jadaone. So what better way to see if what they said held some water in it by going to the cinemas and watching the movie first hand with my ultimate partner in crime P.

Here’s a quick trailer on this much talked about movie. šŸ™‚ In case you haven’t watched it yet.

A Valentine Masquerade Ball

It’s been a while since I last posted in this blog site of ours and I very much missed blogging big time! šŸ™‚ Not only does it serve as my creative outlet whenever I’m stressed or brimming with excitement with regards to the recent adventures I went through this past week but it also serves as my therapy in a way to put into words all those feels and emotions that I seem to experience with every new thing that I embark on.

Catching up at Burgers and Brewskies

I could not quite believe that it’s already Sunday night and in a few hours from now it will already be Monday wherein I have to be up and about again early in the morning to prepare for work despite me wanting to squeeze in some more time for my luxury sleep. Yes! Sleep is a rarity and a luxury for me these days. But nonetheless I still somehow manage to survive everyday with a little cup of coffee and a little early morning stretch! šŸ™‚

Food Review: Zaifu

As I was sitting on our lazy boy chair while munching on my ordered stuffed crust pizza and watching previous episodes of “Revenge”.Ā I was definitely having a good time as my back was relaxed as it was massagedĀ  up and down and back and forth by this new device I attached in front of the lazy boy seat. I recalled my recent food venture at Zaifu and decided to blog about it.
I was craving for Japanese food this one fine night after class and what better way to satiate my hunger than venturing off into Zaifu which was conveniently located at the basement of Rockwell Powerplant Mall. You can choose from their wide array of choices such as the maki, ramen, tempura, donburi and sukiyaki.
