To Infinity and Beyond

After xx months, here I am again, trying to blog, haha. I know I’m taking months before I get to post whatever I have in mind, but as much as I want to, I can’t because I’m so preoccupied with my work (naks!), haha. And I have nothing to share until last March. Last month, Johnc and I celebrated our 2nd Anniversary. Yaaay! :) It feels sooo amazing! haha. I’m really excited because we really planned this plus this is our first time to travel and try new things. It’s really our promise that as much as possible, have our firsts and new experiences together.

Our original plan was to go to Pampanga, visit Zoobic and go swimming. But since we don’t know how to go there and we should go to Tagaytay the morning after, we decided to celebrate it in Tagaytay as well. We celebrated it the weekend before our day since that’s the only time we can spend the whole day together. We arrived at 3pm, I guess, and searched a place to stay in and went straight to Residence Inn, Tagaytay.

The first thing we did there was to go to Paradizoo and they gave us a tour.

Next was the most exciting one, the zipline and cable car, yaay!!!! Really can’t contain my happiness and my fear since I’m afraid of heights, hehe. And it only cost us 150 back and forth! So why don’t give it a try, right?

ZiplineI was too scared to open my eyes at first, but I chose to feed my eyes by seeing the very beautiful view of Tagatay!! And of course, I’m less scared because Johnc held my hand through out the short fly, yieee, cheezy moment here.

IMG_1860Yes! To Infinity and Beyond! I wanna fly again!!!

No, I ain’t taking a selfie, I was trying to get a video of us and the view while we’re on the cable car.IMG_1874And later realized that I haven’t touched the capture button, hahahah! FAIL!! But still, this is a really REALLY unforgettable experience! :)

DSC_0138After which, we also had a quick tour in their Mini Zoo. Us with the I-don’t-want-to-be-in-the-picture camel, haha!

At 6pm, they have their free show starring their staff and some of their animals.

DSC_0187 After the show, we decided to go to the famous Sky Ranch since it’s only a ride away.

PS. For the girls, never EVER wear shorts in Tagaytay if you’re gonna stay outdoors till night and if you don’t wanna die because of the cold breeze. HAHA. Very wrong outfit.

DSC_0206We tried their other rides/attractions before the main ride. A ride on a fake and a real horse! Haha. There are lots of rides there, like the Vikings they have in EK, mini roller coaster, and also zipline.

DSC_0244We waited for them before riding the ferris wheel. See, my brother is no longer a baby!! hahaha.

DSC_0192The Sky Eye! I am fond of riding on Ferris Wheels since it is one of the few rides that I can ride on, hehe. Can’t wait to try the ferris wheel in Singapore or even in London!! Dreams…..

Ate our super late dinner at Leslie’s. We ordered their Bulalo since Bulalos in Tagaytay are super delish and Crispy Pata. Forgot to take a picture of our food since we really need to feed our tummy, haha! And one tip, Leslie’s serves food I guess for 3-4 persons per order. So imagine us trying to eat all of our ordered food!DSC_0246

This is the only picture I have in Leslie’s. See? My brother is not a gay! He’s a pig! haha. joke!! Love you, brotherrrrrrr!

Upon arriving to the place where we stayed, this is what I saw..

His anniversary greeting! In a freaking tarpaulin!!!! It took me half a minute to see if it’s real, haha, cause Johnc doesn’t know how to give surprises, I always knew it beforehand :P But this, unbelievable! :P Thanks for this Babe!!!! Don’t know where to put it in my room, haha.

On the day of our Anniversary, 17th of March, we only had our dinner at Mesa Restaurant in Greenbelt since I have to go to work the whole day.

Also went to the event where I said Yes to him – Pyro Olympics :) Sorry, no videos of fireworks, I want to enjoy the show instead of taking videos of it, hehe, and I’m sure there are many in youtube :)

And thereeeee!! What a celebration! We may have spent a lot here, but no regrets. Invest in experiences rather than on possessions, right? :) Happy 2nd Anniversary Babe, I love you so much and can’t wait to spend more Firsts together ♥

pencil024* I added a Travel category here. Praying and working hard to travel the Philippines and some other countries as well!! :) Also made an ask.fm account, just wanna try the site, hehe.

Celebrating in Manila

I should have blog this a long time ago. Apparently, I just got the pictures earlier this day but still, I’ll post this memorable experience of mine. This is in celebration of our 2nd Monthsary, so yay! Two out of forever! :)

Here is our itinerary for that day:

1st stop, Manila Zoo, it’s his idea! haha :D

See his excitement to view those animals? He’s just like an elementary kid on an educational field trip, haha :P Peace babe! :*

It took me half an hour to make him say ‘Yes’ for this photo ’cause he don’t like snakes, haha :D I really don’t like them too, but for the sake of photo memories, why not give a shot for it :)

2nd stop, dinner at Savory, MOA.

Our orders: Nido Soup with Quail Eggs, Salt and Pepper Spareribs and my newest favorite viand, Buttered Chicken! Obviously, we can’t and didn’t eat them all :D

3rd stop, MOA’s Ferris Wheel, my idea :)

Those big capsules can carry up to 8 persons, but you may go alone if you wanted to. It is so comfortable that these capsules have their own air conditions and music players so you won’t feel nervous when you can view the whole vicinity of the mall, haha! :D

Epic smile, haha. Now I’m afraid of heights, thank goodness the flooring isn’t a fiber glass.

Mall of Asia, top view. Sorry for the resolution :)

And on our way down.. That’s when he read his monthly love letter to me :D

So there it goes, that’s the ride we have taken a few meters away :) Romantic isn’t it?  I think couples or even barkadas should try this! :) It’s only 150 per head and you’ll enjoy being on the top of the world for a couple of seconds, worth the money! :)

Till the next 17! Love love love! ♥

New Places on our First Month

According to the dictionary, there is no such word as ‘Monthsary’. Filipinos didn’t mind it at all because they wanted to cherish every moment with their boyfriend/girlfriend/fiancee/husband/wife or whatever it is.

As for our 1st ‘Monthsary’, we tried new things.

For our first stop, we went to Ace Water Spa. Because I have a Buy 1 Take 1 coupon of the 4 hours Hydrotherapy Massage courtesy of my Belle de Jour planner, we availed it. It’s like a swimming pool with a twist! We have no photos during our stay there because personal things should be left on the lockers. We just stayed their for about 2 hours and a half and enjoyed trying their different massage that concentrates on different parts of the body. So better try it, I’m sure you’ll gonna love it especially to those who want to relax and to relieve stress :)

Check their site Here.

Second stop, Dinner at Love Desserts!

Here we had our unlimited desserts for P199 only!

They have cakes, breads, champorado, puddings, crinkles, ice cream and its toppings, crepes, heart-shaped leche flan, teas, coffees and a lot more! Lots of choices, right?

Here’s Johnc enjoying his all time favorite Braso de Mercedes. I don’t know what is he looking at, haha! :)) They also have rice meals which I have on my plate.

Check their site Here.

I bought two shirts with the same design for us and he gave me a card as a gift :) This is also our post-celebration for our graduation and this may be the first and last time that we have a free day cause Johnc’s busy going to different companies for an interview and examination and I’m working into something too so we had a one time big time celebration :)

Officially In Love

Last March 17, 2012, I made a decision concerning my lovelife (naks lang, haha!). You have seen him so many times in my blog especially on my previous post. And yes, he’s been courting me since October 2010 :)

We are not really ‘into’ that relationship because I’m following our (me & my mom’s) agreement that I will only be allowed to have a boyfriend after graduation. Well, literally I din’t follow that but since I passed all of my subjects, as far as I know, and I’ll surely graduate this March, I finally said Yes!

How did I said it? Since we are to watch the Pyro Olympics that day, the original plan is to let him watch the AVP that I made for him after the performance of the first country but before the second country. Unfortunately, my battery ran out, hahaha! But I still said Yes :P

Here’s the video that I made for him :)

My Valentino

Valentine’s Day is the one of the most awaited day for most of the girls. Well, I belong to that girls who are excited with what will happen that day.

My Valentino is my dear John. Hehe, actually, his name is John Christopher Espiritu, I know you have seen him a bit here in my blog. This is the second time we spent the Valentine’s day together :)

He went to our house at around 11 am to give me these flowers :)

And yes! another set of flowers :> These are my fave ones! His original plan is to give me the first set and is expecting me to be sad and will turn his back to me and ta-da, another bouquet with my fave flowers. Unfortunately, Mama’s there so he gave the flowers at the same time :P

Second surprise: A mysterious box :P

Box full of lines from different love songs :) I read it in front of him and I laughed when I saw: “All you are is Mean”, “She’s a monster, beautiful monster, but I don’t mind”, “Ang gwapo ko” and “Ang ganda ng sulat ko” hahaha. I never thought that he would write this many, but since it’s heart’s day, he did it just for me :)

Third Surprise: A card and Love letter in an Ang Pow (it’s a Chinese envelope where they put money in it) so I thought it was money, haha :)) check for the creativity :P

Lastly, dinner at Max’s Restaurant. We were so hungry that time cause we waited for almost an hour for our reservation. This is our first date ever. I really had a great time with him :)

Just so you know, he always makes me feel that I’m special to him even in the ordinary days or even the worst days of life. Well, I’m such a lucky and a blessed girl :)

So this is our way of spending the Valentine’s day, hope you also had a great one!

This post is for my partner, Johnc ♥
