Mon A. Ferretti

So, a few weeks back, I was in Cebu. Returning to Bacolod, headed to the bus station, I decided to drop by the Basilica del Sr. Sto. Nino. Walking the streets of Colon, thrift shops were shining like beacons. So, I decided to swing by one as I thought I still had time to loiter.

As I was about to leave the shop, a pink chiffon item caught my eye. At first I hesitated, fearing it might be pricey. But I thought I’ve got nothing to lose by asking, and so I did. To my surprise, it was just for 20PHP- less than a dollar!. I was ecstatic!

I was even more surprised when I checked the tag, which was still on, and found out it was an Alberta Ferretti!

Who’s been lucky?

So I headed to church with a spring in my step…

Just Breezin’ Through, Dear Cebu

Oh how I miss Cebu… a lot! It’s been home to us for almost a decade and I have fond memories of our family and friends there.

Weeks ago, The Mister and I stayed there for a few days, and of course, met with friends…

Style File: rock chick

After the KL trip, I decided to stay in Cebu for a couple of nights to spend some time with Ella and to catch up with Eman, CJ, and friends.

The night before I left for Bacolod, we had dinner at our favorite hang out, Kaona Grill near JY Mall in Lahug.

Lee + Nash: I do

Just breezing through to post these photos from the wedding reception of my dear friend Nash’s wedding to Lee last month. The venue was a posh cafe called Dolce on Nivell Hills, Lahug, should you happen to visit Cebu and want to have a cuppa and some sweets.

I kind of regret having the jacket on in this photo, but the place was a bit cold. So, I just had to.

The food was great and you might want to go here should you want to know more about the cafe’s offerings.

I had this dress customized for the occasion.

I was window shopping one day and spotted this silky soft printed fabric at the department store and just had to have it. It’s one of those not-so-practical-days with my not-so-healthy-habit kicking in.

I actually have a stash of fabrics, in case I haven’t mentioned it yet, just waiting to be made into something wonderful. And surely, I will post every single one of them here.

Well, that’s it for me tonight. Got other things to do… Ciao!

So, exactly one week ago, Ella turned 18. Mum and our two sisters, Cara and Kat flew in from our hometown, Bacolod,  to our adopted city, Cebu. This is where The Mister and I work and our hobbitses and Ella studies. We had dinner at Port Seafood Restaurant located in the vicinity of the Waterfront Hotel.
