Debut Coverage - Mookie Yvonne Turns 18 :)

My first take on debut coverage.

Mommy Karen was my ex-colleague from a previous company. Last month, she asked for my help organizing a surprise party for her daughter Mookie Yvonne,  who just turned 18 last Sept. 23. She wanted a Luau Themed debut party.

Location: Jade Palace Restaurant (106 Shaw Blvd. Pasig City)

Party Invitation | Graphics and Layout by yours truly
Mommy K wanted the invitation to be simple and cute so I made this layout. We had this printed on a matte poster board (it looks exactly like a post card) and believe it or not we've only spent Php 450 (approximately $10) on the invitation for 80 guests.

I forgot to mention I also hosted the party - so that's like multi-tasking: hosting and taking photos all at the same time! Haha!

Thrift Tip: Choose Thrifty Clothes ;)

One reason why I love shopping at Tiendesitas is that they have a variety of pretty and trendy tops that never go out of style. Let me share what I wore yesterday (Sept. 18, 2011) when big sister and I went to ADMU for little brother's ACET:

Earlier this year, I've been filling-up my closet with tons of floral tops. I don't know why.

I got my top at Muffin Clothing for less than php 200 (they are always on sale) and my denim bottoms for only php 150. The only thing that don't belong here is the pair of red wedges I got from Milk and Co. (php 800 +), my office colleague has tons of brochures for shoes etc for orders and payable in credit terms. Hohoho~

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Christmas is almost near, have you noticed my color palette here? Haha.

Be Creative :)

"Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can't get there by bus, only by hard work, risking, and by not quite knowing what you're doing. What you'll discover will be wonderful: yourself."

--Alan Alda

When I'm Busy, I'm a Ninja

OK. Call me crazy but when the clock strikes 12mn every weekdays, people can't talk to me seriously 'cause I just give them my infamous nod. Haha. Thanks to kuya for always letting me play fruit ninja on his android phone. :)

Fine Dining on Sale - Uncle Cheffy's Brick-Oven Global Cuisine

People who knew me very well knows that I have good taste with food *wink*, this is something that I'm really proud of.

They say that I eat like a construction worker, I can eat 4-5 meals  in a day and still feel hungry afterwards. Something's really wrong with my metabolism.

Anyway, trying out new dining places in town is just one of my hobbies. I blog what I eat. And just recently when we had our payday, I asked my office colleague to join me on a dinner. Nope it's not a date, I just like bringing somebody with me to eat a sumptuous meal. I find it very very lonely sitting in one corner of a restaurant on a rainy night, if you know what I mean.

Mitch and I went to Uncle Cheffy's Brick Oven Global Cuisine, it's a newly opened fine dining restaurant along Ruby Road in Ortigas Pasig. How did we get there? We work in Ortigas area and luckily, that night when I was craving for something mouth watering, somebody came right in front of us and gave a piece of flyer that says 50% OFF on food items. Bingo, just in time for a hungry tummy.

What we ordered:

Baked Oysters for Appetizer

Cup of Coffee

How would you like your coffee?

My coffee is slightly sweet, less creamer and more sugar. Sometimes I like putting Chocolate syrup on it.

How about you? :)

Desktop Wall Paper 2

I'm getting crazy from the photos that we had last 29 Aug 2011. I now have 2 desktop wall papers showcasing my face. Geez I'm so vain and 'am proud of it. :p
