Running shoes

Because we are both trying to live a more healthy life now, he therefore thought that these running shoes are necessity. It's actually a surprised from my husband last month. He said he saw these shoes on sale ( half the prize) so he bought it na. I went back to walking since then, although most of the time the weather isn't cooperating :(

Lifestyle change for a healthier us :)

ZEN type houses

My husband and I both like this  type of house, and we are dreaming and hoping that we will have one someday, smaller version of course because we only have small lot. I know even small one of this kind would cost like a million pesos. Sigh. At the rate of our salary/income now, we wouldn't be able to build this even if we save for the next five years. But I was told to dream big dreams :)so yes, we are dreaming and we are hoping.
this one I grabbed from

this one is from (they have plenty of Zen type house designs) I am actually tempted to inquire for their prices but I stopped myself..not now but maybe I'll get to ask for their quotation someday)
this one from

this one is my favorite because I love the simplicity and the over all look of it.

Happy Birthday Mahal!

"Remember today, not only does God remember you, He remembers the promise He placed within you. He knows what He’s destined you to do. You may have already said, “Forget it; it’s never going to happen.” The good news is that you don’t have the final say. God has the final say, and He says, “What I started in your life, I’m going to finish.” That dream you gave up on, God didn’t give up on. He remembers you, and He is with you, leading you and guiding you to the place of victory" 


I love you very much. I am so blessed to have you. God loves me so much so he gave you to me  :) I can't imagine my life without you.

More birthdays to come!! love you!!

BonChon at Cash & Carry Mall

is now open!

Years ago when I moved in to Palanan, Makati City, Cash & Carry was just a grocery store. But now, it is huge, with two cinemas and lots of food shop to choose from.

So happy to see BonChon there because I love their chicken and their chapchae (glass noodles). My husband is partial with the chicken though, Jollibee and KFC are still his favorites.

24H Apartment/hotel

A week after my father's funeral, my husband and I stayed here for just one night. We badly needed a rest because of the incident and so we went here. This was not our first time though, when my brother in law got married we stayed here also for a night. This is quite cheap compared to other small hotels/hostels in town.

But even if it is cheap, service is good and the rooms are clean, the restaurant ambiance is nice (newly renovated) and what we love most is that there is no standard check in and check out time here. if you check in at 7:00 PM, you can check out also at 7:00 PM the next day. Guaranteed 24 hours stay. Speak for it's name di ba?

Elevator entrance
One bedroom accomodation has it's own small kitchen, with fridge/oven/ sink

LCD TV/ Aircon

Our view of the city from our bedroom window

even if I smiled, you can still see the sadness in my face there. :( But of course that was a week after my dad's funeral so I am still very much mourning at that time.

But this post was not about me let's go back to this apartment hotel (note that I was not paid nor given any remuneration for this post) but thinking this might help those who are looking for a nice but not expensive place to stay while in Manila or Makati hence this post. It's been sitting actually in my draft section  since May of this year but I only had the time to do it now.
For reservations: I did it over the phone and asked for the cheapest price. You can also book online thru different sites like Agoda. You can also visit their own website at
