It’s a Girl Thing

Weeks after Karen’s wedding and just days before Kholeen’s trip back to Norway, we met up for dinner and desserts at Felicia’s Pastry Cafe, popular for their delicious cakes and pastries.

Dear Father Time,

You’ve flown by so quickly that I could barely count my years on this Earth. My memory has never been so sharp about some aspects of my being, but I do remember enough to be grateful to dear Life. And no matter how tiresome most days have been, I do see the ironies, sequences and roundabouts of this carnival ride.

Warm regards,

Jette

Hello 2015!

MasterD and MissL at the dinner table waiting for everyone else…20141231_202112

Well, I had work over the night… I actually only had a slice of the Sansrival cake, a favorite.

So again, a quick dinner, if at all, and a few minutes for these…

Here, with Diana and my other godson, Steven Nicholas. 20141227_125937

I was fond of calling him Lil’ Nicky, but he’s all grown up now and a great shooter. I really won’t be surprised when he becomes a basketball star someday…

A throwback picture of Steven’s christening…

I’m wearing: Uniqlo sweater, teal floral maxi dress (a gift from my Dad’s bro- Tito Jeff), Mendrez sandals.

Excuse the squinting, my eyes were hurting for some reason. For lack of sleep, probably… Anyhoo, sooo excited for this summer… can’t wait! What things are you looking forward to, this year?

Merry 2014!

On the days leading to Christmas eve, I was busy shopping for these and then some…

20141224_164922

Well, except for Stuart… He was a gift from Rain.

Every Christmas, we typically attend mass on the 24th, before midnight. But this year was an exception. I had work so we had dinner early…

Wow…! Is it one month down for 2015 already? Hah! Boy, how time flies…

How’s your year going so far?

stellar

… it was called.

The what now? I know, I’ve gone off the radar these past weeks…  not that anyone noticed, yeah? But, I’ll still be backtracking anyway. So, expect that the succeeding posts will mostly be about the happenings on the final weeks of 2014 and first few days of 2015.

Anyway, about Stellar… I’ve probably mentioned in passing in previous posts that I recently joined a new company and lucky me, I witnessed how seriously employees there celebrate major events. And such was the Christmas Party that was held on 12.14.2014. The production numbers were amazing…! The venue, the SMX Convention Center at SM, which recently opened.

Now, without further ado here are snapshots from the event, mostly starring me and friends old and new…

I’ve always been a great believer of karma and have a great respect for the workings of the universe. But…

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.

MasterD’s crazy over dinosaurs and legos and loves chocolate cake, fruit salad, and pasta…

20141018_151628

Because I love Calea’s chocolate cake and would not compromise taste when it comes to dessert, I simply sterilized MasterD’s miniature dinosaur and legos and topped them on the cake… et Voila!
