Let The Countdown Begin

I was asking a lot of people if I really need to create our very own wedding blog. I planned to open one initially but then laziness won. So I shall continue to update you here in my good OLD blog and hope that I'll be able to update this blog as often as I can. :)

So... we got engaged last March 17. My birthday. As what we have been doing for the past years, when the celebrant can't think of anything to do or a place to go to on his/her birthday, the other one is required to plan for it. So that's exactly what happened on my birthday this year. My plan was to have lunch with my family - we had a hearty celebration at Dad's/Kamayan/Saisaki - then dinner plans was made by Arvic and me being my spoiled self wanted a surprise celebration. My only request... Surprise me with a new place. :)

He brought me here.... He said he wanted to have dinner on a Cruise and so we did just that. I was happy he managed to plan this out.. impressive!




Dinner was just okay --- a piece of chicken, sauteed veggies, and some fruits for dessert. But we were there for the view and the experience. There were only a number of people aboard and most of them were of different nationality. The cruise passed by Mall of Asia, Solaire etc. There was an acoustic musician onboard playing old love songs. I wanted to request for one but we were close to ending the cruise already and then this...

Arvic told me he had one more surprise, it was a gift. He gave me a piece of ribbon to pull on and as I pull on it, it had a message on it..



He TRIED to get down on one knee but we were both scared that since the winds were a bit hard that time, he might lose the ring. So what happened??? He handed me the ring under the table. HAHAHAHAHA! Did I cry? I was close to crying but then we both looked so silly trying to look at the ring under the table that we just ended up laughing instead. :)) Spent the rest of the cruise asking questions as to when/how he planned all of this and who knew about it.

It was the perfect proposal/engagement for us. "Away" from the buzz of the city, a view of the sunset and the city lights, music playing, and just the two of us. BEST.BIRTHDAY.GIFT.EVER! Thank you my Dear :)


Now let the countdown to our wedding day begin. ;)

CARPE DIEM!

Baguio Trip - Forest House (Part 1)

To those who tried to guess (see previous entry), we were at Forest House, Baguio City!


The place wasn't really part of our itinerary (if we even had one!). We just passed by this place while making a U-Turn back to Nevada Square because we wanted to grab some drinks at a random bar there. The place caught are eyes because it looked so homey and there were a number of cars parked around it. When we tried to ask for a parking slot the guard told us that it was a full-house and that they were entertaining reserved guests only for that night. This made us more curious about the place. So when we got home, we all decided that we'll reserve a table for the next night "just in case" we'd like to try it out.

As we were entering the place, I definitely knew we made the right choice to try it out.


It was evident what the theme was for the place. All-out Christmas-y!:) We opted to have dinner at the Veranda area to savor the cold Baguio breeze. Dinner food selection followed.…

KKK: Food Revolution

It's been some kind of 'tradition' or nakasanayan na to hear mass with the family on Sundays then eat out. It may be dinner or lunch. Depends if Mama and Papa will go home to the province on Sunday evening or not. But lately, since everyone seems to be busy with something, may be work(Me), school(the brother) or reunions(the parents), we end up hearing (anticipated) mass on Saturdays then unplanned lunch or dinners on Sundays.

So one fine Sunday, we found ourselves having lunch in a new place (new to us) at the side of SM Cubao. It was 'KKK'.


Browsing through their menu we found lots of food selections. Most of course are Filipino dishes. The interior and most of the decorations had a native touch to it.




I especially liked this piece made of recycled wine bottles


And this picture or wallpaper that showed some of our national heroes. I think that's Jose Rizal on the left  side.


Off to the food.

Lumpiang Shanghai - This was really good. Especially the sauce.
