I’m officially 26 and I have only good things to celebrate my birthday with. Nothing can beat having a life full of blessings and I am at that point in my life where everything is just perfectly imperfect or imperfectly perfect and there’s nothing i’d like to change.
I try to celebrate my birthday well every year. I mean, it is the one day that I am entitled to be anything I want and people will indulge me willingly. haha so I really go all out every third week of October.
For this year, one of my paandar-s is to go out wearing a bongga dress. I saw this leopard print dress in Landmark two weeks ago and fell in love with it immediately. However, that dress caught my eye in the rarest times that I am not in my “impulsive buying” mode. So i hesitated to buy it because it is a little pricey and I didn’t have an occasion to wear it to… until I decided to be an African Queen on my birthday haha.
This dress is just perfection. I love how the shade of green blends well with the leopard print and I love how the two elements complement a morean skin tone like mine so well. 😀
Aaaah i felt really good wearing this dress. It was turning heads (especially with my hair down like that! haha) and I must admit, I kinda enjoyed the attention I was getting ansaveeeeeh hahahaha. It was my birthday so don’t complain! hahaha
As part of my week-long celebration, I brought my lovely cousins (plus Bes, ate Jo’s boylalooo) at Greenbelt for dinner and drinks on Saturday night.
We went to Torch for dinner and while they’re food isn’t that spectacular, I personally had a very good time just sharing stories, gossips, dreams, news and that philly cheese steak pizza with these girls! haha
I love my cousins so muuuuuch. 😀 We hang out a lot and I treat them like my sisters. Our closeness is one of the things I’m really proud of, you see. We know everything about each other and we share each other’s secrets – down to the dirtiest, most incriminating and most humiliating ones. lol.
Okay… Enough of my chummyness now. Haha. After dinner, we proceeded to NuVo bar for drinks!
I’m so into bars with live acoustic bands. I think I got that from my aunt, Tita Salyn. hehehe.
Water for Ate Jo (LOL loser! haha), San Mig for Bes, Blue Margarita for Larra, Wengweng for Kath, and Pinacolada for me that night. (I’m usually an amaretto sour and baileys kind of lady but pinacoloda is a close third hehe)
Another thing I like about my cousins is that they know how to dress up too! I told them to go fashiown because I’d be wearing a diva dress and they did not under-deliver hehe!
My cousins are the best because they accept me for who I am. I mean I dress differently from the rest of the Brigola clan snd I think I am rather weird, but they just let me be! 🙂 hehehe. Nobody cares anymore and I love that! haha
Larra! aaaah why so gorgeous te?! 🙂
This is not really a complete set. We are missing my sister Myan and ate jo’s sister Jean (Jean is too young for nights-out like this one hehehe) but all my good words and wishes for Ate Jo, Kath and Larra apply to the missing two just the same! hehehe
Love you mga te!!!!!!! mwah mwah! ❤ ❤ ❤
