Our First Family Photo Shoot

We had our first family photo shoot last August 11, 2018. My husband and I were so excited again to have a shoot with Liz Ranola. She’s our Prenup and Wedding photographer 3 years ago, and it was great working with her again! Nothing has change, she was able to captured our hearts!



Nanay’s 61st Jollibee Kiddie Party

Finally, our 61st birthday surprise for our nanay (mother) happened last November 30, 2012. Me & Jell secretly planned this party for her. We choose Jollibee Kiddie Party to celebrate nanay’s wonderful life with us. Para maiba lang ang ganap, this package is usually for kids, but this time a senior citizen will. And we’re glad (almost teary eyed) to see how happy she is on that day.


The Plan: Sent out invitation to our relatives and her close friends a week before the party.


Abala kme ng aking sisterakas sa DIY bowtie for the “Gangnam Style Theme” party para sa mga bisita. Lahat daw dapat may bowtie, para “Psy” lang ang peg!


Nakakaiyak naman si Mudra, nagulat lang ang peg, pero masayang masaya ang ganap! Ang ganda ni Mader no? Mestiza lang! Dahil sa BB cream yan.


Kamusta naman ang mga ganap sa mga games? Lahat sila ligayang-ligaya sa pagputok ng lobo. For the Win, for the Toys!


Bata, matanda lahat nag-enjoy sa food, Chickenjoy + Rice + Spaghetti + Fries + Drinks + Sundae


Bonggels talaga itong si Jollibee, marunong gumalang sa mga nakakatanda! Sige, gow lang sa pagmano sa lola mo! At siyempre, si Mader walang humpay ang ngiti at ligaya!



Syempre di mawawala sa kahit anong occasion ang photo-op with the birthday celebrant. Here are my cousins and pamangkins, gwaping di ba?


Aba, di magpapahuli ang mga girlets! Bownga lang ang pagka-wacky! Ang saya di ba? 🙂


All Day Breakfast at Antonio’s


The relaxed casual dining breakfast experience at Antonio’s is a must try in Tagaytay. Though, I’m very disappointed with their service. We arrived 1:30pm, and we’ve waited for 30 minutes for our seat. We ordered from their All Day Breakfast Menu and waited another 35-45 minutes for our food. I don’t know why everything we ordered are all salty except for the cake, of course. Anyways, I love the place and the ambiance, that’s why I like it here.


Chef’s Recommendation: Sauteed Fresh corned beef and eggs (P400)


All Day Grazing: Quattro Formaggi Pizza (P460)


All Day Grazing: Spaghetti Bolognese (P495)


Flourless Chocolate Cake (P240)


 Sis Jell, me and nanay almost done with our lunch, not really satisfied 😦

Jell’s Day at Fridays


My sister “Jell” celebrated her birthday last September 30, 2012 🙂 at TGIF in Alabang Town Center. She treat us for dinner.

Seeing what she have become at 28… I’m such a proud sister! She will always be my baby sister, who needs her “Ate.” I remember growing up, we used to fight on little things, I always end up giving way for her because I’m the oldest. My father always remind me of taking care of her, looking after her because she’s young and fragile. But honestly she’s so brave inside, she just need someone who will push her to do things that she thinks she cannot do, and without my father around that would be me.

To my sister… Cheers on your birthday, more food, travel, experience, failures and victories, hardship and success for us to share! I love you so much @itsmejelomejell

I choose to celebrate my 30th birthday in 2011 with my victory group. We had so much fun, chat, eat, pictorial, swim, walk around and enjoy the beauty of Taal Lake in Club Balai Isabel. I love these girls! Aside from the fact that we believe in one God and we share the same faith, we also share the same likes – which is Kikay stuff!

Tagaytay Highlands Birthday Travel Diary

I celebrated my 27th birthday in Tagaytay Highlands with nanay & sister Jell. I also invited my tita Josie & Lilia and my cousin Jayjay to come with us. I’ve been in Tagaytay so many times already, but i don’t have the chance to visit Highlands since this place is exclusive for members only. But thank God for my officemate/friend Ghia, her mom used to be a member, so we’re in!


Such a great place, you will never think that you’re still in the Philippines. Fresh air, pine trees, plants and flowers surround the area, few people around, quiet and serene!
