Happy brrrrrrday BFF!

                    My girlfriends and I braved the cold and braved the 6.5hr bus ride to Baguio City!
      Marissa has migrated to Baguio and has been living there for already 12 years, tho we are separated by distance it seems like she is never really that far away as we almost talk /skype/chat every single day haha!--It was her birthday - a birthday 'run'. Her 1st 10k. There was so much to celebrate, she had recently quit her job to spend more time with her family, focus on her health and a lot more. So  special indeed we waited at the finish line!

clap clap!



followed by dinner at the Manor.

Happy Birthday Marissa!
As Reg said .....
Our butts are numb but our hearts are full =)
Cheers!

"moo ichido itte kudasai"

This phrase means-- "please repeat slowly". I will be using this the entire weekend. The hubby and I are goin to ramen land--Osaka!
taken during our last trip on a nippy march evening.
I have a little secret-- I can speak, read and write basic Japanese (nax). Well speak like a 3yr old Japanese that is!-- haha. I took Nihongo a while back, its cool , I can actually read the characters when I'm there. Looking forward to good eats, as there are NO bad meals in Japan. Also gettin my Uniqlo fix and I can check out the H&M Versace collection yaay!
nihon ni mata ashita!

Hair Issue

Its sad (well at least for me) I have thick limp straight hair. I almost always use a curling iron to create some waves during the day, or try to curl it hollywood-ish at night...


waves..
 soft waves.


I have mastered the skill on using this, its takes 5 min . MOD hair is the brand. I'd say its the BMW of curling irons . I got mine in Japan. We are best friends. 

M, (another hair slave) got this for me the other day-- time for a test drive! photos to follow.

DIY- a satisfied lust!

 These Christopher Ross belts I've been stalking for the longest time. He is from New York City and has been sculpting belt buckles since the 70's. They are such collectors item, it gives any outfit that extra UMPH!  It will make any bad day like Christmas morning! 
Oh so lovely -- They are sold in the CR website or on ebay. 


Here is my DIY version, kinda cool if you ask me, it actually turned out better than I expected =)

Old School Fun.

Took the kids out for some playtime in Luneta Park! 
We were very much delighted that the park was so clean,  parking was 2 steps away! There was a kalesa you can ride around the park, it was no ordinary kalesa but an old fashioned one with a leather canopy- and the driver even wore a barong! Needless to say the kids had such a great time. Open spaces are becoming almost obsolete in Manila but this will last forever huh? 

               The best part was-- daughter said--- " mom this is even better than Rockwell" =))
