Starting a new post feels so weird especially after being gone for quite a while. Nonetheless, here I am once again, staring at the same “new post” page. Summer has drifted along rather quickly. I didn’t even have the chance to document my outfits for the past weeks considering the fact that I have worn a lot of great ones, mind you. LOL Such a shame! Anyway, I’ve been busy with the project I’ve mentioned on my last post. It has thought me quite a number of valuable lessons not only to be applied for future work reference, but also life lessons as well. This project may not seem to be a success in our eyes but a lot of people enjoyed it. To them, it is a success and I guess that’s what’s important. I have learned the value of holding back to make way for other people. In this industry, what people say is reality. Looking back at lessons from our Marketing classes, it is true that “perception is reality”. Anyway, blah blah blah more about my wonderful day and of course my outfit. LOL It’s been a while since I woke up just so I can do absolutely nothing. What fun! But then it got boring so I went to watch Fast and the Furious 6 with two of my favorite people in the world.
Serenitea to pass the time. Not a big fan of milk tea though…

Don’t you think it’s quite fitting to have my photos taken in the parking lot right after we watched Fast and the Furious 6? chos! Great movie all except for the ending. Though that’s my opinion based on a certain bias of mine 😛 Not spoiling what happened though. You should go watch it
So in the words of Dom Toretto, “we thank God for family, we thank God for friends, but most of all we thank God for fast cars”. That line sums up exactly how I feel after all the hard work we put into our “project”. Thankful.
So, how was your summer? 🙂
This was from last Saturday as my friends and I ended another stressful week of deadlines, job interviews, and what not. First of all, I am terribly sorry for having nothing but stress and work to mention in my posts. Apparently, that’s how life is for me right now. I do hope to start posting more about fun, exciting things. But for the mean time, bear with me as I have nothing but stress, stress, and more stress written all over my agenda.
Nicole, Jenni, Tal, and I had a nice little tea party (if you’d call it that) at Café Mary Grace last Saturday. It was pretty surprising of my friends to be splurging on our “tambayan” since we usually just stick to Big Chill ’cause it’s well…cheap, to be blunt. But don’t get me wrong, even if it costs us less to hang out at Big Chill, we still end up paying for more since we buy more because the food and the drinks are cheaper than any other place in Greenbelt (Well except for A-Gantea. But we stopped hanging out there ’cause we’re just all so sick of milk tea already and Aey’s on friggin’ diet). So anyway, Mary Grace it was and we loved how cozy the ambience was. We hung out at Mary Grace the day before also, right after our Job fair. Nicole, Tal, and I tried their Mexicana Tsokolate which is hot chocolate infused with cinnamon and chili. Yes. Chili. It was actually pretty good for me but I don’t reckon it is for all taste buds since it gives off a weird after taste which reminds me of Mediterranean food. It’s a must try for every adventure-seeking tongue. Anyway, the only reason I wanted to hang out at Mary Grace was because of their lemon squares. I could eat them all day, everyday, I swear. I got my boyfriend’s mother a box for her birthday and I kinda felt bad that I didn’t get myself a box as well… LOL So, yeah… We spent a lazy Saturday afternoon at Mary Grace sipping on raspberry iced tea and munching on sweets. It’s moments like these that make life seem so much brighter despite all the stress that comes along.
- I wore a simple casual peplum top with skinny jeans since I had a date with Chavs after my rendezvous with friends. I make it a point to be as simple as I can be whenever I am going to see him since he makes such a fuss over my clothing 😐
Nevertheless I think my outfit was quite fitting for “high tea”
peplum top – Betty at SM Girls and Teen’s Wear
skinny jeans – Citizens of Humanitywedge – So Fab
peplum top – Betty at SM Girls and Teen’s Wear

This is what great afternoons are made of. Looking forward to more afternoons with the girls (Aey and Mina included naman lol)
