Our 2nd :)

Up to the very day before our actual Anniversary we had no concrete plans of where to eat and celebrate. Our Lolo Dad's dinner didn't push through because I had to work late that Friday, then it was my highschool friend's (Cookie!) surprise birthday party the following night. So dinner plans were moved to Sunday and Lolo Dad's is closed during Sundays. So we had to make new plans.. quickly. :) Then I remembered that I wanted to try Bellini's way way before. And this might just be the perfect chance to do so.

Bellini's is considered an authentic Italian resto because it is run by Roberto Bellini. A former Italian paparazzi. In the walls of the place you'll definitely see a number of Mr. Roberto's shots.
Mr. Roberto married a Filipina and they opted to open a restaurant here years after. And the rest is history. :)

Bellini's is located inside the Marikina Shoe Expo in Cubao. A very unusual place in my opinion to open up a restaurant, especially an Italian one. But I guess that's one of the reasons why it draws people. It's unique and appealing in a certain way. :) The price is affordable as well. You get to taste authentic Italian dishes (pizza and pasta) for prices ranging from P150 - P300 and the wine selection is great as well. I chose this place because Arvic loves wine and he definitely is a fan of pasta. I loved the food, the service and the ambiance. You really should see the ceiling and the walls! I'll let the pictures do the talking. I just wish I give the place justice coz it really was a sight to see. :)

Now for the food pics. :)

Until next time Bellini's, we will definitely be back. :)

Mother's Day 2017

This time last year, I was celebrating this special day for mothers with our little munchkin still inside my tummy.  I felt I had the right to co-celebrate with all amazing moms (and dad-moms, lolo/lola-moms, sibling-moms etc) of the world because technically I'm a mom already. Little did I know that being a mom is far from what I imagined it to be. Spoiler: IT'S WAY BETTER! :)
After giving birth, I was exhausted. Happy, relieved, and just plain exhausted. It was a grueling almost 24 hours of "labor". I was brought to the hospital around 6AM on the 27th, hoping that I will give birth a couple of hours later so I was pretty sure our little boy's birthday will be July 27. It took me a whole day of waiting, monitoring, cm-checking and "doc wala pa ba talaga" questioning before finally seeing our little one the morning after at 5:55AM.
This year, I am definitely, solidly, officially, proudly a mom on mother's day. Everyday I thank God for this blessing…

Hoyohoy Villas

I didn't know what to expect on our summer trip to Bantayan. I was in Cebu with my family just a couple of weeks before our Bantayan trip so I knew what to do when we arrived at Cebu, and that is to look for our shuttle that'll bring us to the pier so that we can go on a ferry boat to Bantayan Island. What I wasn't ready for was the long shuttle ride. It took us, 1.5-2 hours of roadtrip until we got to the pier and another 1.5-2 hours on boat.

Tired from traveling, we were just really ready to get to the hotel/resort to freshen up. . We were welcomed by colorful pedicabs when we arrived. Manong told us they were our ride to Hoyohoy Villas.

I'm happy the place didn't disappoint us

We were given complimentary refreshments right away...

Our villas...

Exploring the resort..

I really liked the place... the fun was just about to start. :)

Ba-Bye Ate

Today was quite a sad day for our family. For a very close-knit family, goodbyes are really extra difficult to say . Especially if the one leaving will be miles and seas away.

My Ate (with her husband) left this morning for the US. They'll be starting their new life there. She already has work so I don't need to worry about that anyway, and I'm sure that she'll definitely do well. My parents were really sad... maybe it's the thought of being "away" from her. Tipong you have to hop on a plane pa just to be able to get to her. The whole family has US visa naman, we can go there anytime (as long as we have the money I guess :p)

Yes, I cried a lot as well... and I guess it's because of all the bilins I got from her. The one that stuck the most "Ikaw na bahala dito ha.. Alagaan mo sila Mama and Papa. Si Ivan ha... Wag mo silang pabayaan." My nephew on the other hand was a different story... he was eager to go home already when we got to NAIA. Haha!…
