Our Epic Wedding Review : IMP Sea Breeze Resort

As I have said in a previous post, finding the venue is one of the first steps in wedding planning. Almost everything will adjust according to your chosen venue.

DO NOT PLAN ANYTHING ELSE unless the venue is FINAL!

We already set our sights on another venue, but it was just too pricey!

And to give you an idea of how overwhelming married life can be - not to discourage you, of course.
Our Epic Wedding Review : Introduction

In the attempt to sway me to practicality, my hubby and mother-in-law brought me to IMP Sea Breeze Resort in Taguig City. I've only known the resort from some friends (mostly teachers and students who went there for outings). I never knew it as an events place so I googled the place plus the word "wedding." The results showed several videos of a wedding which did nothing to convince me yet.

STAYCATION | Astoria Plaza, Ortigas

My husband... having an affair with the TV. **Just kidding** ...But he really misses watching TV.

Happy rainy season to all!

As expected in the greater Manila area, rain showers and thunderstorms are coming in. Classes are suspended. Floods conquer some of the streets. A tornado has also been spotted this month. Yikes!

What better time to book a staycation than a rainy day? And also, our free accommodation voucher is about to expire in a week.

We decided to FINALLY use our voucher to avail of the free accommodation in Astoria Plaza in Ortigas.

MOVIE REVIEW | Warcraft (2016)

I have two brothers who love PC games, so as you can expect, I played Warcraft and DOTA for a reasonable amount of time before this movie came out. My brother would show me the cg animated short films about the heroes and their respective backstories. I've always admired the detail they put in the game characters. I expected the same with this movie.

Let's watch the trailer first!

Hubby and I were in the mall when we saw the trailer for the first time. We were like kids drooling over chocolate cake. We really wanted to watch it. It was insane!

If you haven't watched the movie yet, STOP RIGHT HERE!

Recovery After a D&C (Part 03)

My husband and I, with our respective families, are coming to terms with us not having a child early next year. It was quite a shock when we found out that my pregnancy failed. It's now safe to say that we're in the end of the grieving process. We've accepted what happened and we're moving forward.

Change The Way You See Friendship

Meet my four-footed friend, Xena.
I have human friends too, but for now this post is about her!

Xena is a chihuahua turning six-months-old this August. She is still a puppy but weighs over 2 kilograms and is starting to put some pressure on my lap when I carry her.

Last year, I lived with my parents, two brothers and as many as seven chihuahuas at one time. I moved with my husband early this year. We got Xena after a month of being together. She was only two-months old then. Not having a pet for a whole month, I was longing for a chance to have a dog again. Even now that I have Xena, I still miss our dogs back in my parents' home.

Okoy is Xena's dad.

A dog is the most loyal companion a person can ever have. A dog loves unconditionally for the rest of his/her life.

Xena cannot talk, but she's a good listener.
She cannot give advice, but she gives joy.
She cannot lend me money when I need it, but she gives me peace.
She is not just a pet. She is a friend. She's part of the family.

When we lost a baby last July, Xena comforted me, but unlike other people, she was present the whole time. She didn't need words to console us. It was like she felt my emotional pain and responded to it. She was just there.

Friendship comes in many forms. Sometimes it's the bond you share with people. Sometimes it's the bond you share with a little dog.

I take more photos of her than of myself. She's very playful. Sometimes it's hard to take a photo of her while she's playing and the only decent photos I got are when she's asleep or tired. Usually, I take a bunch of photos then pick the least blurred of them for an instagram post. That's too much hassle for one picture.

Huawei P9 Smartphone can “Change the Way You See Mobile Photography”.

Huawei P9’s camera is co-engineered with Leica. It has dual lenses that produces high quality photos and allow users to take amazing monochrome, slo-mo, colored, light painting photos among others. Blending superior hardware and software with Leica dual lenses, the Huawei P9 enables you to capture high quality pictures without compromising on the handset’s sleek and compact style. With an 8 megapixel front-facing camera, you can achieve superior selfies even in low light.

I look forward to sharing more days, months and years with Xena; to document those moments with lovely photographs and videos, hopefully with a Huawei P9 smartphone!
