re-CYCLE

So the Kuya got a new bike…

And, so Kuya’s bike went to the Ate Meg…

And, Ate Meg’s now with the Mati boy…
Finally, his first bike!

His tutors…

His litow friends cheering him, were very ecstatic seeing Mati learning to bike! It was just so sweet of them. πŸ™‚

A Journey of a Flower Girl’s Bouquet

Meg was one of her Aunt’s flower girl who got wed in QC. Coming back to Cebu, she did not agree to leave her bouquet in San Mateo, Rizal, where the wedding reception was and where we stayed…

So she had to tag it with her from San Mateo, Rizal…
The newly wed loving couple: JLou (jeff &  lou) at Ridge Cafe, San Mateo, Rizal.

…to MOA where we left it at “package pickup” to which I think they should just rename it to baggage counter.
…to Terminal 4 where we need some explaining to do with the security staff amidst all the crowd and long line.
to finally getting its way to boarding…
… inside the airplane, while she was sleeping whole throughout the ride.

And, finally, Welcome to Cebu, purple bouquet!

and in our home.

Maybe I should end this with some love quote for newly married couple… maybe not.

PENS!!!

The pens section is one of my happy places. But I refrained myself, for probably 2 years already, to randomly get near it, and impulsively buy. Because I hoarded too many, but went mostly unused because I don’t really use them. Because I’m way too pass a student. 

In short, I’m too old, it’s no longer cute for me to hoard colorful pens!
But still i let myself bought a few once a year. Since the year is almost over, and I’ll be getting a “moleskin” planner, courtesy of GCs we got from the Christmas party, it’s just worthy to get my annual stock of pens.
So presenting the new ones, and the old ones. The ones on the left are new ones. I got particular giddy to see these new casing of Pilot pens.
Yes, i’m really more of a Pilot pen fan; and I particularly prefer this “pushy” type because i don’t have to deal with losing the cap/cover. πŸ™‚

If you want to give me a gift, I’d be over the moon happy to receive Pilot G-2. πŸ™‚

Guilty Pleasure

Since Meg showed interest with books, I feel extra giddy every time I pass by the “middle grade” book section. As much as Meg would probably horde all the books in this section, I feel the same way too. I could not leave it without bringing something from its shelf.

I went to fullybooked to get something for someone but I instead managed to get only something for Meg.
I’m not really sold out of the Wimpy Kid series but I could not help to get excited seeing the latest from its series — Hard Luck. I bought the hardcover as paperback yet is not available; it’s how I’m excited for it for Meg. πŸ™‚

I also got another one, Emily the Strange. I don’t know how this one fares though. 

The thing that sold me out on Emily Strange was seeing this statement on its first pages:
“I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.” – Mark Twain

I hope that if ever Meg will get across it, she will understand it. πŸ™‚

Wine & Cheese

and coffee! πŸ™‚

and wedding! Congrats, J & J!

post-wedding, we did cheers for the couple at this new place in Lahug, which i don’t know how to pronounce but Leah called it Pink house. It’s beside that grand sosyal Mormon church.

First time!
We had some “affordable” sparkling wine, cheese, & cold cuts. That’s just so sound cultured. πŸ™‚ I opted for coffee though, which i’m not so crazy. 

THANKFUL for gift of friendship. It’s been awhile. It feels great that we are still around, that “browngate connection.” πŸ™‚

Wishing for more browngate girls wedding so we can have some level-up browngate tagay. 

50 Shades of Grey

Growing up with a bad eye sight, I don’t know wearing sunnies or shades or whatever you call it. Because, I need RX lens, I cannot just pick a Rayban and wear it.

On the other thought, I don’t have a nose built for wearing wayfarers or shades. So yeah, I don’t feel pretty in them.
Anyhoo, I need some decent eyeframe so I dug into Mark’s stuff, except for the 3rd. I’m trying on some of his stuff to look for that frame which fit me. Then I’ll replaced it with Clear RX lens. I’m picking the 1st.

I’m just a simple girl. I don’t want a bigger house or a bigger car. I just want to run all over the world, and be ran all over by the world.
