Happy Birthday Girl :D

7 Nov

For my birthday, a very dear friend of mine treated me to a breakfast buffet, a refreshing lunch, a sumptuous dinner and a lot more eating in between, and made sure I had a great time despite the fact that I couldn’t celebrate with my family (until 2 days after) because of our difficult schedules.


frozen margarita and apple mojito

Of course, since it’s my birthday, it was a no-brainer that we would eat out, al fresco at that, in Greenbelt – my favorite hang out place in the metro, even tho he is not a big fan of the place hehe. We had dinner at Italianni’s and a music duo (singer and guitarist)ย was playing lovely songs for the entire duration that we were there. Simple but perfect night! All the things I love were there to celebrate with and for me!


some sort of napa valley salad, some sort of garlic bread, and salmon and cheese pizza. (no idea how these are called in their menu!)

Ahhh food was great! company was great! music was great, outside dining is always great, my old sky blue floral dress still looking pretty and flowy, the good stories, my being able to celebrate without spending a single dime! Thank you, universe, for making sure I had fun! ๐Ÿ™‚


We also had lunch at the Wholesome Table, in Salcedo, Makati which serves organic food. It was my first time there and I instantly fell in love with the place. The restaurant was so beautiful and comfy, what with the rustic-beach cottage ambience which I was really digging. I want all their furniture in my future beach house!


Food was also delicious. We ordered their carbonara and a bowl of salad, and then indulged in their refreshing drinks. I loved the chai tea frappe! Waiter offered to replace the pasta because he thought bacon in it was a bit too burnt but we didn’t think it was necessary. I appreciated the initiative tho. ๐Ÿ™‚

Wholesome Table’s a bit pricey but this is understandable considering the resto’s advocacy to only use organic ingredients.


Well, I could say that my 27th birthday did not involve any grand party but I nonetheless had a very amazing time… eating… eating… and eating… for free. So thank you, Rene! I want you to know I appreciate being fed like a queen on my birthday! ๐Ÿ˜€ hihihi


I would also like to thank my friend/office mate, Ago, for buying me pancit so we could somehow celebrate my birthday in the office even though salary was delayed. We only had the said pancit and this cake I bought at a local bakery for only Php250.00 to share but these were good enough to make my day at the officeย special. Thank you office mates for celebrating with me! You’re the best! ๐Ÿ˜€ thank you! I really appreciate it! ๐Ÿ™‚


What do I say? It was indeed a happy birthday for me ^_^ thanks to the good people around me! ^_^

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. ๐Ÿ˜€

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. ย 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. ๐Ÿ˜€ 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! ๐Ÿ™‚ hehehe. Nobody cares anymore and I love that! haha

Larra! aaaah why so gorgeous te?! ย ๐Ÿ™‚

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! โค โค โค
