Blue Water Day Spa Event

Last Tuesday, February 24, we (a few invited bloggers, thanks to Noemi Dado) attended an event which I've been waiting for, the grand opening of Blue Water Day Spa at Capitol Hills in Quezon City. Even though I'm coming down with a flu, (I took meds to ease the body pains I'm having) still I insisted that I should attend this event. Hubby and I are actually arguing about it. When he finally agreed to let me attend, drove fast to fetch Chats and just in time, we were able to catch Piolo Pascual before he leaves the venue. After the ambush picture-taking, we toured the place.

This is such a nice spa to visit. Since hubby and I frequent this place because of the resto at the roof deck (with the view of the whole Metro Manila), now hubby can stay there and drink all he can while I'll have my day at the spa. Or maybe both of us can try and go for a massage.

Here are some of the pics...

Ipanema Gisele Bundchen Collection Launch

Last Thursday, February 19, I was invited by a good friend, LadyCess to attend another bloggers' event. This time a fashion show featuring a new line of fashionable flip-flops made in Brazil. Actually, it was the launch of Ipanema Gisele Bundchen Seeds Collection. It was held at Le Souffle at The Fort. Good thing I attended, I met my fellow mommy-bloggers and new friends. And the food was great so with the party. We watched the Philippine Ballet Theater members (wearing Ipanema flip-flops) do their interpretative dance accompanied by a Brazilian music. Had so much fun. We even took home a pair of Ipanema slippers. Not only that, we get to meet the President of ELRO Corporation, Mr. Francisco Elizalde, exclusive distributor of the said brand. The slippers are all designed by renowned supermodel and environmentalist Gisele Bundchen.

Memorable Valentine Experience

This is my entry to the Filipino Mom Blog's Love Month Meme...

My hubby is not so keen on celebrating the V-day. He's not into gifts either though I've given him a sports car, some pieces of jewelries, fighting cocks, a KTM sports motorcycle, travels abroad and some "things" before (some of which he later sold when we were gypped in an investment scam). And he's Ilocano and Chinese, maybe that explains why, he he. But he has given me priceless gifts on Valentine's Day. Guess what...I conceived my three kids on this love month. All of them were October born. My first child though was born on April (that's unplanned, wink here).

So I guess that was my most memorable Valentine experience. No candle-lit dinner, roses and chocolates, expensive gifts or not even a Valentine card...but that's ok with me, as long as I know hubby loves me more than his life (that's what he always says)...

When Cupid Strikes...

This is my entry for the Filipino Mom Blog's Love Month Meme.

I met my husband through a common friend. I was free (means single) that time and this friend of mine gave my office number to him. He started calling me, talking about our work, our bosses and even future political plans. Finally, after three days of phone calls, we decided to meet. We are supposed to meet for lunch but he only got the chance to sneak out of the office at around two in the afternoon. I went down the stairs of the condo (where our office is located), wearing my signature mini skirt and picture this, my long hair swaying by a strong wind while he's sitting in his car waiting for me. Can you picture that scene, just like in the movies huh...but, he didn't get out of the car to open the door for me, tsk, tsk...

Anyway, we had lunch at Josephine's Restaurant, Roxas Boulevard because that's the nearest restaurant to our respective offices. We have to get back to the office after, both of us were working for the Senate then. We dated everyday after that or shall I say, we're inseparable after our first date. The rest is history. And no more mini skirts for me, ha ha ha. He insisted we get married immediately, his boss (a former soldier turned Senator) even joked they will have me kidnapped if I don't marry him. By the way, we got married twice. Nowadays, hubby is always singing the song Lucky..."that he's lucky he's so in love with his best friend." Well, I think he's really lucky, ehem.

Finally, this time Cupid ♥♥♥ strikes right on time.
