... is already here. Thanks to Globe for finally bringing it here. I've already inquired with Globe and they said that with my existing plan, all I need to do is upgrade to the next plan and pay an additional cash of about 15k minimum. The prepaid kit is quite expensivo (from 37K-45+K) so getting this would be way out of the picture. I'm keen on getting one na but deferred it muna because I'm not sure if I can still consume the upgraded monthly plan and is the iphone 3G worth buying ba talaga? Plus, I have an Ipod touch na which I plan naman to give to hubby if I decided to get an iphone. Any of you have this na or contemplating of having one? PLease, please give me feedbacks as I really want this. Plus, I really need to convince pa my hubby that this phone is worth it talaga.

Help anyone?

A lovely wedding

Last 080808, my brother-in-law, Ricky wed the love of his life, Rhea in a simple but elegant wedding at Our Lady of Consolation Parish in Tierra Pura Subd. It was a wonderful day. Family and friends were there to celebrate this union and we're all truly happy. We've been preparing for this day (the family) for more than a year and we're just too glad that everything turned out great as planned and envisioned by the couple. I represented one of the ninang (an aunt based in the U.S. who can't make it to the event) and guess what? I was paired with Dr. Hernando Perez! Yes! the very controversial former Secretary. * wink * social climbing wannabe me hahaha!

But during the short period of time I was with the guy, I find him nice and the guy's soft-spoken pala! Here are some pictures of wedding ceremony:

* warning picture overload *

The lovely couple's souvenir photos at the church's grounds

The couple with the principal sponsors - including me, wearing the lime greem gown. I'm fat! :(

With the groom's immediate family

The couple's cute litte bundle of joy, Chloe (she's soooo cute, I just love her!)

With the groom's family and relatives

With the best man (my hubby) and the maid of honors (the bride's sisters)in a funny moment

The wedding reception was held at the Grand Terrace in Commonwealth, Q.C. The venue is quite small compared to hotel ballrooms but perfect for a small, intimate parties. The food was great also. I enjoyed being sitted in the VIP table with the principal sponsors because the food was served to us. No need to fall in line in the buffet table, lol! The wedding program was short but entertaining. Thanks to the wonderful event coordinators from Angels Wink and the program host, Atom. Here are more pictures of the reception:

Make-up Essentials

I'm Back Ladies!

After more than two weeks of being "absent" in the blog scene, I am finally back with a lot of stories to tell. In case you're wondering what ever happened to me, I was super busy with a lot of things (work, family, etc.) that by the time I face my computer to update my blog, I could not write anything because I am just too darn tired! My work load has tripled after the consolidation. Tsk, tsk, tsk. I can not complain though coz it's all part of the package. I just hope that this is just part of the adjustment period and things we'll get back to normal in the coming weeks. Hay... How I wish talaga. I've never been this tired with tork before.... :(

Anyways, after a long while (and a very much deserved rest- thanks to this long weekend), I was able to do this tag from Kelly. Thanks sis! Sorry for the super delayed posts. I enjoyed doing this.

Pretty blogger participants: 1. 100% Kelly 2. The Simple Life of a Baghag 3. Your Blog here

My Five Make-Up Essentials:

1. Powder Foundation

Shu Uemura Velvet Foundation or Mac Studio Fix in NC40 (i use them alternately)

2. Concealer

Laura Mercier Secrete Camouflage (I have under eye circles and I over them up with this wonderful product)

3. Blush

Nars Blush in Orgasm -(love the sun-kissed look this gives me)

4. Lipstick/Lip Gloss/Lip Balm - I'm very pale that's why my mom had me wear lipstick in college to add color to my face. So, this ia a MUST for me.

MAC Lipglass

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Lipstick

Kiehl's #1 Lip Balm ( i've been using this even before the store in Greenbelt 5 opened late last year, I so love this product! Perfect for dry, chapped lips)

Paul and Joe ( I love the feminine housing of this product line and only got to discover it when I was in SG last year. Good thing Rustan's now have it)

5. Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

I also go this from SG (cheaper than here) and I so love the way it curl my eyelashes even without a mascara!

I would love to know yours - Jane, MM, Tet and Mich.

Glad to be back from blogging.

Hi everyone!

How's everybody doing? I know I have been neglecting my blog "duties" but I have so much work to do in the office... hay... kakapagod talaga. Much as I want to blog every night, my body would not cooperate as I was too tired from a hard day full of meetings, turn-overs and adjusting to a new office environment.

Anyways, last weekend hubby and I hit the malls, SM North Edsa (it's 3-day sale there!) and Trinoma. From the sale, I was able to snag 3 tops from Giordano and 2 from Chocolate Clothing Company. From Trinoma naman, I was able to convince hubby to get me that Kenneth Cole Bag i've been eyeing for quite some time now. So, I went home very happy with my loots plus extra bonus the bag I got from Kenneth Cole. I'm one happy baghag *wink* *wink*.

Tomorrow, i'll be on leave. It's my BIL and his lovely fiancee, R's wedding and i'll stand in for one of the ninang who can't make it tomorrow. We're all excited for tomorrow's event. We all know how hard the couple prepared for this special day and we're just so happy for them. TO R & R, Best Wishes and COngratulations!! We love you both :)

it's all about me

I will start with my tag assignments with this one from Jane, Vina, Pat and Ems. Thanks girls!

The rules:

A. List these rules on your blog.
B. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog.
C. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

You’ll have to read on for my 7 facts and see who I tagged.

1. I have been a loyal Sharonian ever since I was a little kid. Love everything about her.

2. I used to sketch gowns and dresses and cake designs (would you believe?!) in high school but never really thought of taking up fashion design or cake design in college. Now, I was wondering, what would happen if I did? :)

3. I get pretty excited when I see a red "SALE" sign. The shopaholic in me could not get enough of it, lol.

4. I am a frustrated ballerina. The closest thing to ballet that I had was some dance lessons in elementary mostly folk dancing pa hahaha/

5. I used to play the piano till I was in 2nd year high school. I even had formal lessons pa with a piano teacher. Now, i'm not even sure if I can still play a piece. Naninigas na yata ang mga daliri ko!

6. I love to sing. I have a pretty good voice daw, naks! But i'm afraid to sing in front of a crowd.

7. I easily get nervous especially when it comes to my family. Maybe it's because of my love for coffee, naging nerbyosa na ako. To overcome this, I always pray for my loved-ones safety all the time.

I guess everybody has done this one already so i'm not tagging anyone na.

Happy Saturday everyone! Don't you just love the weather? It makes you want to stay in bed all day. Hay... I might do that but knowing that there's a sale going on in SM North Edsa, hmm.. I might change my mind hehehe. Anyways, you guys have all been so wonderful and patient with me for not updating my blog lately, so i'll try to do all your tags ladies and do some updates.

Enjoy the weekend!
