Baby Shower Slash Slumber Party With Best Friends

I know it’s already Thursday, but how was your weekend? I need to ask you that because last weekend, I had a blast celebrating friendship!

I celebrated my birthday early this month, and because of our hectic schedules, I never got to celebrate it with my girlfriends. So we planned to stay overnight in a hotel, just a night of fun and bonding. But life happened and it got postponed and postponed until my birthday was already too far away lol. So instead of my birthday, we just decided to organise a baby shower for our dear friend who will be giving birth next month. 😀

Also, instead of a hotel, I decided to book us in a condominium unit. It’s a lot less expensive than a hotel and I figured we would need a bigger space to host a party!

My preggy friend, JM, knew of course that we would be staying overnight, but all she expected was a slumber party and nothing more. My conniving friends, Hazel and George, and I kept everything a secret. But it was not the original plan. We (actually Hazel) only thought of it a couple of days before the day! We only had a few days to plan and we weren’t able to visit the condo unit in advance, so we were planning blindly. And when Saturday came, we only had a couple of hours to whip up a bash-ready place.

But I think we were able to pull it off. Success! Here are some pictures: Continue Reading

26 Questions on my 26th Year

My gift to myself this year is a long weekend. 🙂

I spent my 26th birthday last Tuesday, June 7, and I took two days off from work (Monday and Tuesday). I was planning on spending the entire long weekend just lazing around, eating junk, and binge-watching Descendants of the Sun.

Well, I did achieve most of the three. I watched Descendants of the Sun from dawn of Saturday to Monday midnight — it’s my first time to watch because I never had the time before last week — and boy oh boy was I hooked. I love everything about it: the actors (Song Joong Ki, because of you, it’s as if the name Lee Min Ho doesn’t exist anymore in my world), the storyline, the amazing cinematography, even the OST. It’s such a pity that it only spanned 16 episodes like how dare you take us on a lovely ride and cut it short. 

Anyway, yeah, Joong Ki, it was really nice to meet you.

It was nice to meet me too, right? Sorry Joong Ki but I’m taken…

Other than that, I wasn’t able to truly laze around because I suddenly had appointments and my colleague, Sarah, unexpectedly gave birth on Sunday. I then met my goddaughter on Monday! But it was still generally an awesome long weekend.

My goddaughter, Xandrah. Isn't she the prettiest?

I planned on doing a blog marathon but life happened, so I wasn’t able to publish anything last week. So here’s a belated birthday post. Because I’m not feeling sentimental (it’s only 10 am on a weekend, after all), I decided to do something fun — and outdated, lol! I got the inspiration from a Facebook On This Day entry, from a time when publishing memes and tagging your friends was all the rage.

Here are 26 Get To Know Me questions! 🙂 Continue Reading
