Cookie… signed and sealed

To be honest, I’m at a loss for words to write here… It amazes me the bond we develop with friends.

You see, I recently attended a wedding- well, a renewal of vows, to be exact. Erny and Karen’s.

Erny + Karen (teaser) from James Lau on Vimeo.

Karen and I go way back. There were seven of us in high school and we fondly called our group KHOLADIKAJE.

Here’s a throwback…

But it’s been a while since we girls really got to hang out, with all of us having families and all. So when Karen rang me and the rest of the girls last year that she and Erny will be renewing their vows, we didn’t think twice about booking a flight to Manila for the celebration.

And fast forward to February 2015, us girls had a reunion. The venue, Klub Keluarga in Laiya, Batangas. It was 3-4 hours drive from Manila, more or less. There was no network signal at the location so, we were totally cut off from the rest of the world for the two days that we were there. But we never ran out of picturesque locations to take pictures and things to talk about, of course… In fact, two days weren’t enough!

photo bucket: the beach

Not the movie, but a beach at the south border of the City of Smiles. Villarosa beach, has been around for ages. Well, it’s not like beaches move some place when they feel like it… Simply that, I’ve been visiting this beach with family and friends since I was little, and assuming that people had been going there way before I came into being.

Anyway, I took the hobbitses there Friday, last week.

Sadly, the beach is not as clean as it was way back…

And last night, I ran into old friends at the supermarket. We hung out for a few hours… Unfortunately, I forgot to take pics. But I’ll be hanging out with them soon, hopefully… So, until then, I’ll be posting other random stuff… 😆

Thanks for visiting.

Goodnight world…

Anyway, I found this quaint place near where the hobbitses study. Grill Guru, it’s called. It’s nice and quiet here. It The ambience actually reminds me of my grandparent’s home the house my grandparents used to own in Paranaque, Manila.

photo bucket: kids a swimmin’

MasterD and MissL had a day off from school on Friday. It’s Teacher’s day, I heard. So, I decided to take them swimming. The venue: Palmas Del Mar, a conference resort hotel here in Bacolod that’s been around for over a decade now, I think. It’s a popular venue for wedding receptions and family outings. Anyway, the last time I was here was overvtwo years ago. So before we jumped into the pool, we decided to go around the resort first.

I’m wearing: diy handprint top,  custom-made asymmetrical skirt, feather earrings, Mendrez sandals.

Welcome to Campuestohan Highland Resort!

Family friends picked us up on Sunday and took us to their relative’s resort less than an hour drive out of Bacolod City. Now this place is often fully booked and one needs to make reservations days or even weeks in advance to rent cottages or stay in their hotel.
