Cocktails before sunset

Monday night, the gang got together for a celebration! 2 of my dear friends just got engaged and we couldn't be happier! Really excited for the preps and the craziness it will bring!

Clockwise from top: Classic Ceasar Salad, Steamed Mussels, Buffalo Wings, Binagoongang Baboy (Pork cooked in shrimp paste)

C and I headed to the resto 5ish to start early with the alcohol (Everyone thinks we're the alcoholics in the group! Haha!). Chef's Table is a Modern-Filipino dining owned by celebrity chef, Bruce Lim. Great ambience, but so-so food...The night became enjoyable because of the company! But, I must say, their cheese platter was delish! Also good to note that they served great wine - or was it because of the aerator?!?!

Red and White

I NEED one!!!
Our very own cheese platter - customized by the Chef!

♥♥ Congrats you guys! Can't wait to be at the wedding!!! ♥♥

Chef's Table is located at Unit 106 Infinity Tower, 26th St., Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. 399 1888. Open daily 11 am - 2 pm; 6 - 10 pm.

Mona Lisa smile

Last night, A and I had a mini celebration for post vday and my raise!

The cheese platter and dips are great! We made the right decision in getting more appetizers as their service lets customers wait a while. If I weren't in such a good mood, I would've started a fit in the restaurant. 

When the steaks finally landed, I was in gastronomic heaven! It was goooodd!!! I can't remember our conversation while devouring that glorious meat...come to think of it, I don't think a word was uttered until we were almost done! Haha!

my Lamb Steak

his Rib Eye Steak
Happy tummies!

Not sure if we'll do a repeat just coz of the bad service. Maybe after a year with the hopes of better service. We'll just have to wait and see...

Mona Lisa Ristorante is located at 2/F The Commerce Center, Commerce Ave., Alabang, Muntinlupa City. 556 0708. Open daily 11- 3 pm; 5 pm - midnight.

Getting hitched!

Before, you get any ideas...NO, that's not me getting hitched! ;) 

Last December, My long-time friend and her long time bf came home (K&A are based in SanFo) for a couple of weeks to be with family and friends and do some preps for their wedding...since my friends know my passion for photography, they encouraged me to give pre nups a try---no pressure, just plain fun! It was pouring that day and we thought of cancelling, but come 4ish, it just stopped! Not exactly the kind of weather I would've hoped to shoot with (I wanted the sun and my fave clouds to be out), but we managed pretty well. Thanks to "CAT" who allowed us to shoot by the poolside of her condo...

So, here's a glimpse of how it went that day...

The location

Congrats K&A!!!

Playing with umbrellas

I am feeling all mushy though as A did something pretty awesome for me yesterday. We NEVER celebrated Valentine's Day, guess you could call us the Scrooge of that occassion..We just didn't want to celebrate with the whole world, go through all the horrendous traffic, make restaurant reservations weeks ahead, walk around with flowers in hand, and all the shebang! So imagine my shock when I got a call from our receptionist telling me I have a delivery and that I have to go down and get it. When I went down, a bouquet of colorful and smiling gerberas greeted me! I was embarassed and touched at the same time! It was the first time ever that I had flowers sent to me in my office. And the first time ever A surprised me on Vday! I must say, my hats off to you, lolo pulled it off perfectly! I didn't expect it! So...a big THANK YOU!!! ♥♥

I don't know about you, but I can't wait to get my hands on this baby! Having the 1st gen iPad for only 5 months, I am seriously thinking about upgrading to this beauty once it hits the Philippine shores..although, I think it will be hard to let go my iPad since it was given to me by A, I think it would be wise to upgrade! c",)

The mouth-watering smart cover it comes with it totally adds to its appeal...Sooo loving the candy colored ones! Blue, green, orange, and pink! I want them all!!! The battery life can last upto 10 hours! More blogging/game/movie time on the road! Wee! Say goodbye to boring waits at the airport or anywhere else! iPad is my new bestfriend! iPad 2 price starts at $499! Something to save up for...

Now, it makes me think if I should still get these for my iPad...

Apple iPad Case $39

 Incase Origami Workstation $29.95

What do you think? Should I upgrade or stick to the old one and just add on some accessories???

The food was delish to the last drop! Everything was quickly prepared for us and very tasty!!! We were excited to taste the dishes as they were brought to us.
