A very personal blog

Time after time


Some days I feel really lucky. Like last Saturday, when I invited my sister to come along with me to the mall to buy a present for Jeckie.

We got a parking slot at SM in less than five minutes, considering it was payday weekend and there was a ridiculous amount of traffic heading to the mall. Actually, it’s because we accidentally followed a car to the valet parking area haha. One of the attendants apprehended us but eventually allowed us to stay as long as we register the car at the valet counter and surrender our keys. That’s ₱100 but it’s definitely worth it considering that day. 🙂

That’s one.

Next, the gift I bought for Jeckie was on sale. Yey! I mean it’s not like I saved anything ‘cos I didn’t even have a set budget for it haha but well, sale is sale.

Lastly, Caramia had a buy 1 take 1 promo that day so my sister and I shared 2 scoops for the price of 1. I got esspresso (which was melting, love it!), and she got pistachio. BEST COMBO EVER. If you know me, I don’t like eating frozen desserts. I like my ice cream tunaw. Still cold but not frozen. Basta.



I did the Drop 10 and dropped dead halfway. It’s been so hard for me to push myself into exercising regularly, but Drop 10 remains to be one of my favorites simply because it doesn’t have a set time. Just finish the set and you’re good. Everything depends on you, the faster you work out, the sooner you’re out. I usually finish in 20-30 minutes but this time around I was so exhausted already after the 50 seconds plank so I plopped dead on the bed after.

For reference, here’s the workout:

  • 100 crunches
  • 90 jumping jacks
  • 80 lunges
  • 70 squats
  • 60 jog in place
  • 50 plank
  • 40 jumping jacks
  • 30 squats
  • 20 high knees
  • 10 push-ups

It’s very heavy on the legs. I remember a time I was doing this regularly and my thigh muscles really grew. I don’t like it lol but it makes me sweat a lot so I keep doing it haha


I set an appointment at Damsel (Gowns for Rent Manila) so I could check if renting is an option, and also to look for flattering styles I could wear. Seriously considering renting because

1. It’s cheaper
2. I don’t have to worry about storing it after the wedding

But then,
1. It’s not tailor fit to your body so you really have to check the fit
2. Limited style and size options
3. You can only get your gown at least 7 days before your wedding, and they charge by the day ha.
4. You’re most probably not the first one to wear it. Doesn’t matter to me though ‘cos obvs they’ll clean and repair the gown naman diba? Haha But yeah

There’s another rental shop I’m eyeing, Bottega Bellance, which is around QC lang. They’re renting out pieces from Rosa Clara and Vera Wang for 30k. Soooo mahal but maybe I’ll set an appointment with them too!

There’s also The Bridal Room but it’s at Paranaque pa huhu

The plan is to keep on trying gowns at rental shops and have the style I like tailor made at Divisoria. Haha


I want to go home already haha
