Flowers for You

"Flowers for you, on this lovely evening
Though they have no words they share my feelings
As we walk along the avenue
Pardon me, I just can't help staring at you..."
-Each Day With You
There are girls that are really fond of flowers. There are girls that aren't. I believe I was the latter. I'd choose chocolates over flowers any given day. But spending a lot of time with Mama made me realize why some girls do love them. We went to the famous 'Dangwa' street to buy fresh flowers to bring home to Nueva Ecija and I must say seeing all those beautiful and colorful flowers definitely made me smile.

Close-up pics...

 Thank you Mama for making me appreciate flowers more. :P

And now, she wants me to go to flower arrangement class with her. Let's see what happens.. ;)

CARPE DIEM! I'm out.

Close kami Ninoy

Yes. Believe it or not, close kami ni Ninoy. Proof? Here you go.

Minsan nagkakatampuhan din kami...

Pero sila ni Arvic.. hmmm.. medyo may kompetisyon ng onti. Hahaha!

 Parang walang sense yung post. =P
CARPE DIEM! I'm out. :D

Memphis Memories (Part II)

Another thing I love about Memphis beside its musical history is the food!

We were treated to breakfast by our family friends in this really cute, small yet cozy cafe near a park. The name of the place is "Blue Plate Cafe"

You can see the park in the glass reflection in the first pic.

When we got in, it was pretty obvious that the place was a popular one because there are a number of people waiting to be seated in the entrance area. Reminds me of Pancake house here in Manila.

The couches looked soft and comfy

The walls were filled with paintings and mirrors. Yes, I took advantage of the mirrors and took pictures of myself. Haha!

Off to the menu. The menu was really interesting. It had a newspaper design. So it gave you a feeling that you were just home reading the paper while waiting for your pancakes to be served. Really a nice touch. :)

Wide selection of omelette, pancakes and waffles. Lots of toppings to choose from also. So here's the food.

Everything was good!!! :D Ev…

Just another wine night

Cougar Town is to blame for our sudden craving for wine that day. And of course where else would we end up but in Barcino. :)

The food...
Our favorites of course!

Chorizo Platter

 Paella Negra

The star of the night: Red Wine

For dessert:

Mouth-watering Sinful Chocolate Cake

And Arvic's favorite Creme Brulee :) I really need to learn how to prepare this already.
 It was a night of catching up with my girls and of course good conversation. :)
CARPE DIEM! I'm out.
