GT: Pink Gift-- Body Shop's Japanese Cherry Blossom

I've been waiting for this moment of posting anything PINK on GT because pink is my favorite color! I'm sharing with you my hubby's Valentine gift for me last February of this year.  He actually surprised me with two cute blouses and Body Shop's Japanese Cherry Blossom lotion and perfume!  The Japanese Cherry Blossom was a new fragnance of Body Shop back then and when I smelled its fragnance for the first time, I promised myself to purchase it (I didn't have the power to spend kikay things back then because I was not an earning housewife).  That's why I was so thankful for my husband when he bought a set for me (and now, I guess I would have to buy a new set because they're already empty.  And this time, since I'm already working, I can already buy them with my own moolah.  But I still don't give up hope that my husband would again surprise me with something pink again---hmmm, another set of Body Shop's Japanese Cherry Blossom maybe?

The Body Shop items (Japanese Cherry Blossom lotion and perfume) were from my husband.  The gift cheque from The Spa was from my sister-in-law.  The ticket were for Percy Jackson movie at Alabang Town Center (my husband and I watched it---it's our Valentine date).  The rose was from the Ayala Alabang Valentine's dance party which was held the night before Valentines.

We woke up happy and thankful for another fun-filled day!

GT: Scary in Blackness

Before you read: Make sure you're brave enough to look at this photo, and your eyes open enough to see through the darkness. 

This is true.  I took this photo in the blackness of the night, no lamp posts and cars passing by.  And there was no one around, that's for sure (except for me and my colleagues who were not far away from me.  For more of my own experience of this photo, read my article about it on my other blog, A Family Tale.  The article is entitled, Scary Photo (On the way to Baguio City).

Get ready to feel goosebumps on your skin....

Advance Happy Halloween!!!

GT: Green! Green! Green!

Green time!  Hehe.  Green is my hubby's favorite color.  That's why we considered it as part of our motiff during our wedding (along with my favorite color, pink.  But that's for the next GT topic).

More green!  My dad is already retired from work and is now spending his time in planting a small Farmville in their backyard in Los Banos, Laguna.  Check out his plants in the photos below:

My ICE CREAM Personality

Your Ice Cream Personality:

You are a bit of a bragger. Your personality is larger than life - and you really enjoy showing off.

You are incredibly cautious. You rather miss out on something than make a mistake. No one would ever call you wild... but they would call you responsible.

You are a somewhat open minded person, but deep down you're fairly conservative. You don't like trying new things very much. And if you do find something new you like, you stick with it.

You tend to have a one track mind. You prefer not to multitask.

You can be a big dramatic and over the top sometimes. You are bold in every way

MellowYellowMondayBadgeScenic Sunday

The photo below is a shot from Minesview Park.  This place is a well-known tourist spot in Baguio City, Philippines.  It is where you could get to see the scenic mountains of Benguet.  It is here where you can also get a chance to get dressed as an Igorot (a tribal group in the Northern Philippines) and take a picture with the actual Igorots.  Lots of souvenirs and food pasalubongs can also be bought here in affordable prices.

For my out-of-town story regarding Baguio City, please read Reminscing the Past: Baguio Escapade at my mommy blog, A Family Tale (

You live in every area of your home, and you really savor your time there.

You could never feel at home in an empty or quiet house. A home should be enjoyed to the fullest.

GT: Purple on the Pre-Nup

The photographer of our Pre-Nuptial photos said that we could bring 3 sets of clothes for the pictorial.  The first set that we wore was the color of our wedding motiff-- I wore something pink, he wore something green.  The second set we wore was the imported black T-shirt he bought in Singapore which has a LOVE name on it (his has "LO" on it while I have the "VE" on when we walk together, the shirts would spell LOVE on it).  The third set we wore was something formal...and we weren't quite sure if it was appropriate because the venue was at La Mesa Ecopark.  But the shots were great.  Sharing to you some of our Pre-Nuptial photos in a formal dress with a nature background.  P.S.  I wore a purple long dress which my mother-in-law lent to me.

GT: The Baby Red Santa

I don't know if it's appropriate to post this super red photo for first GT's topic for September....  I isn't yet Christmas!  But somehow, I thought that since it's already the "BER" month, and some of the radios start to play Christmas songs, maybe this photo would make us feel that the ever-waited Holiday is fast approaching!

It's a baby Santa photo.  It's actually a photo of my baby daughter, who was 5 months old back then (that was December of 2009).  The Santa costume was c/o my sister-in-law (and her godparent).  We were all very excited to take a picture of her in this suit. And even though we all know that she was feeling hot in the costume (it was on her in a few minutes, just for the picture taking purposes), I guess, with at the smile on hr face, she still enjoyed being the cutie baby Santa.  She enjoyed her first Christmas in this world.  And she's probably looking forward for the next one (me too!).  However, for now, we're searching for a perfect Halloween costume for her. Tehhhee! :D
