26 Feb

Day 1:

Congratulations to Jon for getting two job offers! πŸ™‚ He was offered a new job by Stellar and Microsoft (until now, he doesn’t Β know which one to choose) πŸ™‚ I, on the other hand, was offered a new job too, but same thing with me… (I still don’t know which way to go..) confused much? πŸ™‚

Well, we had an unbelievable day at Stellar. The exam was pain in the head… promise! It lasted for like 3 and a half hours, with no breaks in between. We finished and passed the exams (aba dapat lang, kalerki ha!) at around 7:30pm. We were even asked to go back the day after for a final interview. We were so drained and helped ourselves home. We were starving to death so we hit the shawaramahan nook near our place where we had Beef Sisig, Shawarma Rice, Bulalo. Sorry I wasn’t able to take some shots. Imagine how drained I was that day. πŸ™‚

Day 2:

We went back to Stellar the day after. We passed the final interviews and we were given job offers too. But it took us 9 looooong hours again, yes NINE NOT-FUNNY HOURS!!! -.- My back pain killed me, our tummies were starving, and we both lost our patience and sorry but we ended up sharing not-so-good feedbacks with each other.. (sa aming dalawa lang naman…haha!). After the torture, we decided to treat ourselves and had a luscious dinner at Conti’s. After the dinner, we both found ourselves re-charged. We went home and had a much-deserved rest. πŸ™‚

Trivia:

I almost failed the Typing Test.. haha! πŸ™‚ who would’ve thought that a blogger and a freelance web designer like me- who’s used to codes, letters, and all that…almost failed!? hahaha! Just imagine how nervous I was. I type fast but I must admit, I hit accuracy at times. πŸ™‚

What we had at Conti’s?

We had Roast Beef in Mushroom Sauce, Chicken Ballotine, Buffalo Wings for the main course; Β and Mango Bravo for our dessert!

What do I suggest?

their Baked Salmon is a must-try! πŸ™‚ My all-time favorite. I skipped it that night because I wanted to try something else, and I didn’t regret it! πŸ™‚

Their menu offers a lot, and they’re all good! πŸ™‚

BEFORE we touched our table utensils! πŸ™‚

and... AFTER... haha! πŸ™‚

Yummy Buffalo Wings

Our most loved Mango Bravo! πŸ™‚

One Night at Conti's πŸ™‚

He Loves ‘Em

17 Feb

Around two or three weeks ago, while Jon was busy watching tv, I got up and prepared breakfast for us. I opened the fridge to look for anything to munch on, and then I saw our Christmas ham- patiently waiting to get cooked and liked. So I got it, let it cool while preparing French toasts and cups of hot chocolate. After 10 minutes, I fried the meat, put some sweet sauce on it, got ’em, tucked them in the French toasts I made beforehand, and pressed them with Home Made (the brand of mayo we use at home)Β mayonnaise.

It was a breakfast-on-bed. Jon, tasted them and he “loved and loves” em! πŸ™‚ From that day on, Jon would always look for them. He even brought their Christmas Ham yesterday so I could make hamonado sandwiches for him. Yesterday, I used Pandesal- Jon brought some too from their Pandesal nook (Pan de Amerikana). They were good! πŸ™‚

65 Bucks or Starbucks?

15 Feb

So who doesn’t know Starbucks now? No one.. right? Most of us already know what to order whenever we hit the counter, we also know for a fact that this coffee shop along with all those big nooks offer expensive hot and cold cups. I love Starbucks, I love Coffee Bean, and I admire Figaro. I’m not a coffee lover but I am definitely a frappe-sucker! Oohhh Green Tea Frappe is love! πŸ™‚


Two weeks ago, I discovered a coffee nook near my place. I checked what their Menu offers and to my surprise, I saw lotsa Frappes, breads, smoothies, pastas, etc for only php65.00/order, the most costly I saw would be around php85.00. So I gave it a shot, and voila they flew me to the moon that night! πŸ™‚ I fell in love with it, with Forza! πŸ™‚

Two weeks ago, I introduced this humble nook to Jon and my twinsister. Jon ordered Carbonara and Choco Marble Frappe; Sam had Chicken Fillet Sandwich and Mocha Frappe; and I just had Choco Marble Frappe- I wanted to see how they’d much on and wait for their comments, that was why I ordered less. And ta-da voila, I did not disappoint them. Jon and Sam fell in love with it too! πŸ™‚

We went back last weekend, Jon had his favorite Carbonara. I tried their Sisig and Strawberries and Cream (they don’t much, I know!); and Sam had Pesto and Black Forest Frappe. I forgot to bring my Digi Cam. Thanks to Jon’s Ip4 though.. πŸ™‚

Affordable and yummy! I love! πŸ™‚
So 65 Bucks or Starbucks? Both definitely! πŸ™‚


for only 65.00! πŸ™‚ for real!
their rice meals are not that yummy compared to their pastas and sandwiches, but not that bad for 65.00
while waiting for our orders πŸ™‚

Still on the Bed

13 Dec

I’m still here on my bed, pinned down, and with a smile plastered on my face.

Last night, I went to Jon’s place to bring him his “cravings for the day”. He was surprised and happy to see me. πŸ™‚ After munching on, we decided to call Mae and Jeff up. Just in time, Mae and Jeff were planning to drink, so Jon and I bought a few bottles to share with them. πŸ™‚ I super loved the Vodka that Mae and Jeff bought. Ang Salap!

I had fun. It felt very good to share stories with Jon’s closest friend, Jon’s kababata. It was also good to see the four of us laughing over some shared stories and jokes. πŸ™‚

Next time, I promise to bring Shawarma. πŸ™‚

I have to get off the bed na! πŸ™‚

Good morning people! πŸ™‚
SMILE! πŸ™‚

  • Another wonderful Sunday spent with Jon and my twin sister Sam πŸ™‚
  • We had a luscious lunch at Peri-Peri. Two thumbs up for their Spit-Fire Chicken, Java Rice, and their Houseblend Iced Tea! πŸ™‚ I’ll definitely eat there again πŸ™‚
  • I met Jon’s close friend Mae and Mae’s boyfriend-Jeff. πŸ™‚ I was happy to finally meet two of Jon’s good friends. πŸ™‚ We didn’t have enough time for stories but I felt very comfortable talking with her. πŸ™‚ Madami pa naman next time! πŸ™‚
  • From Greenhills, I asked Jon if we could visit his Dad. So we went to Tito Nard’s grave.
Happiness! πŸ™‚

Jon: in white πŸ™‚
Jam: in pink πŸ™‚
Sam: in green πŸ™‚






I’ll Catch up.. Now na!

11 Nov

I miss my blog! I’ve been busy lately with work, and every time I get home, my bed never fails to call my name right after I take my after-work-bath.

 

Let me catch up by sharing a few things that happened these past few days. πŸ˜‰

β€’work: nothing new with it, except for the new faces. New hires are coming everyday, good job Care! πŸ™‚

β€’home: our chihuahuas are over a month old na, Weeeee… they grow so fast and I and my family are now undecided… to sell or not to sell. They’re lovely, and three of ’em are long haired. We know that we have to sell them, we have 12 chihuahuas na if we’ll keep the 6 puppies pa. But letting go of ’em will be hard too.

What else?? Still about our home sweet home. Hmmmm, mom just bought a new fridge,.. Hahaha and we have 3 now, and I wonder how she’d be able to maximize ’em. She said the other one would be for family gatherings when she’d have to cook for guests… and the short one goes to my ate’s future room.

hmmm and another thing, I’m getting used to my new way of losing weight project. You all know that my health condition requires me to trim down. Jon is very supportive and he inspires me. So when we’re not together, I take a picture of what I eat (all meals) and I twit ’em and Jon sees ’em. So far so good. I have been getting good feedbacks and I’m happy!

Another interesting subject about our home “billboard” is my ate’s pregnancy.. πŸ™‚ everyone is soooo excited for the baby. We are all her caregivers… and we make sure that she eats and rests well. (I can’t wait to see my first pamangkin na…) :))

β€’lovelife: everyday gets better and lovely because of Jon. Misunderstanding is part of all relationships, so that’s part of ours too. But good things always come in after some petty fights.
>we get to learn from each other.
>we both look for our work-arounds and make them happen.
>we get to know each other well.
>we become more comfortable with each other
>and the most important thing that happens every after fight is —we never go back to those issues and things that we have already worked on… πŸ™‚

More about my lovelife?? Hmmm I’m very happy because we share and talk our future plans together. We are both excited to make ’em all happen. πŸ™‚

Sooo that’s all for now. I’ll sleep na.. πŸ™‚
