Chinese New Year 2018

So for those who are asking I'm 000000000.02 chinese. 
Nananalaytay po sa aking dugo ang pagiging intsik. 
kidding aside, you actually don't have to be chinese to celebrate it. 
We as filipinos got used to it with the large number of the chinese population, it's no wonder how we became accustomed to just everything related to them. 

My man and I attended the CNY last year. We promised to make it a tradition every year. On the actual CNYE, we thought we would not make it and break our promise since we both have commitments that day. 

It was around 10pm when we arrived at the Lucky Chinatown Mall. We usually get there much earlier but since we had our commitments, we arrived later than expected.

It was already jam packed !!! The crowd was wild !!
Tim Yap was hosting the program alongside with this pretty woman whose name I forgot (opps sorry :( ) 

We weren't able to pass through the crowd to buy some food so we just stayed where we got stuck. I was clearly having some difficulties with breathing coz of the amount of people there. It even got crazier when Bamboo performed!!
I got to see him live !! That's why people were so insane!! I enjoyed his performance despite my breathing difficulties hahahahaha! Coz really u can't say no to Bamboo. After the mini concert and the countless times I've bumped into random strangers, we finally managed to get ourselves to the food stalls !!!! My fave part !!

We decided to buy pasta and pizza. 

and roamed around more. This is actually the reason why we love coming here. Food is everywhere and you get to try lots of varieties.

We became too occupied with food that we forgot to get to the main entrance to witness the countdown and to get the perfect view to watch fireworks :(

This was the view from where I stood. People were everywhere I couldn't make it to the front. 

fyi fireworks actually scare me but I can't help but admire their beauty.

I can hardly wait for next year !!
Kung Hei Fat Choi !! ♥

February 2018

Everything seems a mess up until now with me still adjusting to my new job and new environment. Trust me I'm working on it. Naah I'm just lowkey reasoning about how I slacked off last month.

let's skip my lame excuse coz I got tons to share !

On the first week of February, my man and I came over to my best friend's house for some much needed quality time!

Jobs and I made some lasagna. It was my first time making one too.
Thank goodness it wasn't an epic fail!! The boys liked it.

We literally spend the whole night eating and jamming to IU's song "Through the Night", which we later on made a short cover of. 
Thank you to my best friend ever, Bill ♥ and also to Jobs for being so generous and awesome as always!

I'm honestly trying my best to seize the moment before I start my new job. 

On the second week,
My fam and I paid a visit to my relatives in Pateros, which also happened to be celebrating a fiesta.
Aside from the food my Tita Gemma cooked, (ehem magutom din kayo damay damay naaa)

 we also had a chance to roamed around the bayan. 
and what did we got ?
I got fake tattoos!!!
This sticker that I absolutely fell in love.

And this cool goth inspired henna !

I paid mom a visit too.
Missing you heaps ma :(

so before I became emotional for 1000000th time, let's move onto another topic. As you all know February is pretty much famous for the Valentine's Day
I made homemade chocolates for my valentino and damn man, I'd never been this disappointed in myself lolol

Let's start with the messy table that I didn't even care to make it ig worthy set up.
Secondly, I never thought putting water into a melted chocolate can change its fucking texture!@$#$@#. I made this the evening of 13th and got no time to go buy another one. Such an epic fail already.
But yo girl here went on coz ya know walang susuko hahahahha!

I bought a Valentine's chocolate, recycled its box and re decorated it.
This is what I came up with.

I know it looked terrible but heyyy it's my first time making one. 

On the actual V-day, we opted for a simple dinner.

Above all the typical roses, chocolates and what not,I think one of the most meaningful gifts that I have ever received were the pepper spray and the rape whistle. He knew that I always get scared everytime I got out a night. This actually helped me feel safer at least and I'm just moved about how someone can be so over protective of my own being. Thank you.  

Lastly, I made my first order to Beauty Manila.
Heard that they're selling organic makeups so this is totally not gonna be our last transaction :)

I also went to Binondo to celebrate Chines New Year but i'm gonna make a separate post that it deserves! So stay tune !!

I started my new job naaaa and I'm loving it so farr! ♥♥
Will try to be more updated as possible despite my demanding schedule but I can't fully promise that guys :(

However, if you got into this part, then here's a cookie !!!!
Thank you for staying !!!

I love each and everyone of you !

January 2018

It's me again Grace !
January passed in a blink of an eye, and we're almost half of February.
To those who just come across my website, Hi there ! Hope you'll have a great day ahead, and if you're wondering what is this blog about, kindly navigate my "About Me" section at the upper left corner :) and about this entry, I usually make a quick summarization every month and yes today we are doing a January entry. 

So what went through my January ?
I must say A LOT!
 I finally have had the courage to step out of my comfort zone and do something that my future self will thank me for. 
I'm switching to a new job starting this February. 
It was saddening to leave the people that made my workplace tolerable,but as what they say; grab as much opportunity while you still can. With a motivated mind, I will face this new phase of my life with the skills and learnings that my previous job have equipped me. 

To be honest, I've been planning to leave not because I hate my job but because I don't see myself growing. I have this urge to seek for more. Per se my career growth and also as an individual, I need a job that can help me with my professional career, a much different one from my previous job. I think January is the perfect time to start a fresh ! and l was fortunate enough to got in to a new company. 

Enough with that, I still have some more stories to tell !

Welp, now this Pororo drink was given to me by my co worker who probably saw me drinking this one time. Why am I sharing this ? Coz little things matter to me such as this lolol I know I'm such a softie. 
This was the only Pororo drink out of all the canned carbonated drinks they  bought. AND IT'S FOR ME ;__; THANK YOU HUHUHUHU
GRASYA Y R U SO SOFT ? I should have brought this bottle with me kaso naiwan ko sya on my last day. :(

as if I'm not too emotional already, this was my meal on my last day at work T^T 

I'm a little confused on what to feel. I'm still in the middle of transition from the previous one to this new chapter. It all happened so fast!

I had this japanese meal on one of my company visits. 

and speaking of company, this photo was taken on the day of my final interview.
It was a nerve-wracking moment for me but I was lucky enough to have my man constantly giving me some moral support TTuTT

On the last week of January, a soothing meet up with my friends was just right to end the month. 

my first time trying Thai food ! I must say I loved it ! ♥
Thai Halo Halo for the win !

a quick pampering to end the day!

aaaaaaand that's a wraaaap !
Date check: as of writing this,  February 12, 2018 just two more days before Valentine's Day. 
So I'm greeting everyone in advance, Happy Valentine's Day guys!
Sa mga single dyan, isusurpise ko kayo then bayaran nyo na lang ako after kems. I love you all and thanks for reading up until here. 

Can't wait to start afresh this year ! I didn't sign up for a New Year's resolution coz let's all be honest, no one actually sticks to it -_-

Til my next entry, Bye !

How We Celebrated Our Birthdays ♥

I've been meaning to publish this entry but your girl here be busy on the first month of 2018 lol

but without further ado, here's what went down on my 23th 19th *winks* birthday last December 20, 2017. Honestly, I'm not the type to invite friends on every time I hit another age. On a typical birthday, I usually just spend it sleeping or just treating myself at the mall nothing out of the norm. But just last year, I realized my 20's should be spent having fun and making memories with the people you love coz let's be real, we're not getting any younger right?

Months prior to my day, I asked my friends and reminded them a couple of times until they're pissed hahahaha ! I set up a mini celebration and invited them over!

Sponsored food coz ya know #brokeass

and things are just getting started!

Thank you Aya for these wines ! this actually made the night a lot better. 

Catching up with my friends is probably my fave part!
Drinking red wine is soooo #adulting GG na ibang level na talaga tayo mga bakla !!

S.Q.U.A.D.  *insert Vien, Ynah and Armin* wish you were there guyss ;___;
Times like this are just too precious and I'd still want to do it again for my next birthdays!! I love you guys and thank you from the bottom of my heart, I sincerely appreciate each and everyone who came to celebrate my day. 

Really anxious inviting these people and just kind of expect them to get comfy with each other, but I really am glad to have these set of friends who would get along in just a few minutes of being in the same room. Thanks Jobs and also to my dear best friend, Bill for coming !! 

Cheers to my 23 years of existence!!

Thanks babe for this cake !! T^T Though you were too sleepy and busy with work, you still managed to celebrate it with me and now that I realized, we don't have a decent photo together :3

As for my man's birthday last December 26, 2017. Unlike the sobrang effort pasabog surprise I initiated way back 2016, this one was a much simpler celebration. In fact, we only had dinner out. It's probably because of, you know just grew out of this teeny tiny couple-y stuffs. I feel like we've grown a lot through a year of being together. 

To my man, who looks like he hasn't sleep in this photo. lol jk
Another year of us being together and in love, hope nothing will change and you know what..
I think I like the idea of us being together somewhere in the future.  

25 and still doing this pose hahahahaha wtf
like what I've said on the gram, these are the three of my most fave things
all in one photo: 

Here's to more birthdays for us December babies ♥♥♥
