Feel good

My plan for today is to pay for the oath taking tickets at PRC, have lunch at DLSU, then straight to Landmark to shop for a spaghetti strapped top and to pay for vouchers bought online. Well, the plan was going well until I decided to drop by at Forever 21 just to look for cheap items (anything below 500) just to have my very first F21 item. I saw a cheaper spaghetti strapped top here compare to landmark so I thought I could buy the top here. However, I saw this cute red top, and *boom* I really wanted it so badly. Also, I saw this red shoes that's so comfy and I really want it too! However, my money isn't enough for the 2 items, and I can't be too obsessive on material things. 

After about an hour, I decided to buy the cute red top and decided to give it to my mom as my Mother's Day Gift! Yay! And I'll borrow it nalang! ;) ***Pardon that chubby arms! 
On my way home, there's an old woman who entered the bus but there's no seats left for her so I let her to take my seat. Yay! She even offered to pay my fare, but I already paid the conductor and even if I didn't pay yet, I don't want her to pay for me for letting her sit. I felt so good to help others! :)

A Sweet Thought

I had a job offer at Ortigas and luckily, it's my friend's first pay day so he bought me a slice of cake at Mary Grace. He ordered the same cake and a cup of Chocnut Tsokolate. One thing I really love at Mary Grace is their Cheese Roll. And I love the fact that they put lemons on their service water! I really love it! :)
Black Velvet - P100.00

I was curious about this Black Velvet. Well, this is actually a chocolate cake with cream cheese layers. We all know the existence of the Red Velvet, and this Black Velvet is really a must-try! It was really good! ;)

Dinner at Burgoo

We had our very sumptuous dinner at Burgoo, Mall of Asia. Our friend purchased a voucher from Deal Grocer for us girls (with Andy and Zeti). Unfortunately, my friend, Andy wasn't able to come. Good thing we are five because they served heavy meals for us. They have a huge paper as cover for the table, and they provide crayons for us to make ourselves busy while waiting for the food. 
*Low quality pictures. I used E's iTouch for this.
 Swiss Chocolate from Marks and Spencer. It tastes like Cadburry! Yummy! :)
A and E 
Mickey and Zeti 

Four Seasons (left) & Grapefruit (right) Juice. Err, I don't like the bitter taste of the grapefruit. Good thing it's not my order, it's E's. Haha! :)
Oriental Chicken Salad. Crisp greens, red cabbage, water chestnuts, crab meat, Mandarin oranges in an Oriental dressing topped with fried chicken cubes. The salad was quite fine - a bit dull for me. 
Cream Dory Milanese. Not a mouthwatering picture for this. :( This dish is served with spinach cream sauce, mashed potato and caper salsa. Everything was really good here. I really love cream dory!

 Shrimp and Ribs Platter. Fries, Corn, Cajun-Spiced Prawns and Full-flavored Baby Back Ribs. Real yummy and tender! I love ribs. I love prawns. I love this platter! 
Seafood Au Gratin. It's a mix of shrimps, calamari, mussels and clams cooked in pink sauce poured over Bucatini pasta and topped with mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Three garlic breads were added on the side of the pasta. In some restaurants, there are only few seafoods on top of pasta dishes, not on this one! There were many shrimps and clams and mussels and calamari on the pasta. This is a heavy dish! The waiter opened the foil in front of us! Though not really that appealing, at least it was served fresh! ;)
Super busog faces from Mickey and Zeti. First place goes to Mickey, second to E, third to me. Hooray for us with big appetite! Yay, my cheat day, I promise to lessen my food intakes after this! Hopefully I'll overcome this food indulgence!
Our vain moments after the dinner :) Hihi 

Burgoo is really a good place to eat. Though we waited long for the food, once they served the appetizer, they continue to served the other orders. They also have crayons used for doodle moments to kill time in waiting for the food. I really enjoyed my dinner here! :)

First row seat

This was my first time to experience this "first row seat" view of fireworks at SM Mall of Asia. They have fireworks during weekends, and we're just few meters away from the fireworks set-up. Super mausok sa vicinity ng fireworks at may mga nahuhulog pang items mula sa pumutok na fireworks! Though some of the people move away from the line and some covering their faces, I am busy taking pictures and waiting for a good shot of the fireworks. It's one heck of an experience kasi hindi naman kami nagpapaputok ng fireworks during New Year because of my asthma.
 San Miguel by the Bay, Mall of Asia
 My favorite shot! 
 Grabe sa usok, swear! 
This photo is not part of the MOA fireworks, I really don't know exactly where but it was shown several minutes after the fireworks in MOA. It is somewhere in PICC or Roxas Blvd. area.

My first time to add watermark in my photos! Haha!

Engineer by profession, traveller by heart ♥

I just want to share this once in a lifetime achievement I have accomplished. I am really happy that I am now a licensed engineer. Thank you to all who believed and supported me along the way! There are too many people to thank for, second on my list is my parents. Lord, You are the first on my list. Thank you Lord! :)
I'm so overwhelmed for those people who send me messages especially to my professor (kahit hindi kami close) at the review center. I have two friends that topped the board exam, and I'm really proud of them! Though I have also some friends who didn't make it on the list, I know God has a better plan for them. Just keep the faith alive. :)

53.55% passed the Electronics Engineer Licensure Examination.
71.68%  De La Salle University - Manila students passed the exam.
100% passing rate for my block, Block EP! :)

Congratulations to all of us! To God be the glory! :)

Here comes the sun

We had a reunion at Paete, Laguna. I stayed for only one whole day since I have to study for the exams. Yes, I know I gain weight during the review period, but I will/must lose weight before the summer ends.

Hello chubby face, legs, and tummy! I'll get rid of you soon! :)
I really love this resort mainly because they really have a good landscape on the entire place! Plus, the beauty of the mountains surrounding Laguna can be seen. Oh, I also love their cabins/rooms! Oh, summer, this is just the start!
