Little Tokyo

One of the days I felt extra generous. I gathered the family and we ate at this place called Little Tokyo in Pasong Tamo. It felt like a hidden place entering a small walkway to get to this outdoor dining place with tables in the middle and the restaurants are just next to each other on the side. It does make you feel the Japanese vibe. :p

Fambam and I definitely enjoyed our food though the service was pretty slow. The hotpot/Shabu-Shabu was served late (we’re almost finished) but it was so good it made us forget the delay. I enjoyed my Ramen too and we found out that Baby Zaab loves it. The gyoza and all the others were delish too.

Oh, if you noticed there’s my sister who is showing my other sister who cannot join us since she’s miles away our food. Skype helps us bring closer together. Haha. So that makes us really complete.

And just like the routine, we cannot end the nIght without the desserts so we headed to Domino’s near Little Tokyo and we had their desserts: the chocolate lava cake which is so divine and apple crumble which is just perfect too!

Always make you tummy happy! And your family too. (:

My 23rd!

I know it’s way past due and it has been over a month but I still want to boast about my 23rd birthday. And it’s because I got the greatest gift that I would be keeping a secret for now (no, I’m not pregnant. Haha)

One of my birthday blues every year is that it has been ages, I think I was 9, since the last time I blew a birthday cake. The universe made it up for my 23rd birthday. (:

Got these cakes for my birthday! (Clockwise) Pre birthday dinner date with my friend, Kyle. Midnight birthday surprise from my team, US Lubes Tax Admin. And a morning after shift birthday cake surprise from my family. My heart was already filled with joy just the early morning of my birthday.

Then we had our usual birthday dinner with my whole fambam. I love this tradition of ours, we celebrate and eat outside whenever one of us is celebrating his/her birthday. I grew up thinking that this happens to every family. I’m so blessed!

I’ve received dozens of red roses too! *blush*

And my birthday didn’t end on that. Since two of my college buddies are in the same work shift as I am, we had breakfast at one of my favorite breakfast place. It’s still my birthday in our timezone anyway.

My heart was filled with joy having my loved ones around me. That’s what truly matters most. Oh, thank You. You have blessed me so much.

My Happiness!

Image

 

It all started with this starfish plus of course my pancakes. (Some time late August)

Image

Went back to one of my favorite places near the Metro and fell in love again. 09.29.2013

And a month later when I went back here again, I went out of this beautiful chapel the happiest. The happiest. 10.30.2013

 

I was trapped in the hole of desolation for years and I’m glad someone made me take the leap. I missed this feeling.

Now I’m very much willing to take all the risks again. Things are never simple with grown-ups, that’s the thing though.

But I’m very much happy. I think that’s way more important.

Cheers!

xoxo,

G

It is so easy to see
Dysfunction between you and me
We must free up these tired souls
Before the sadness gets us both

I tried and tried to let you know
I love you but I’m letting go
It may not last but I don’t know
Just don’t know

If you don’t know then you can’t care
And I show up but you’re not there
But I’m waiting and you want to
Still afraid that I will desert you

Everyday with every word whispered
We get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
But nothing last forever but be honest, babe
It hurts but it may be the only way

A web that’s warm with memories
Can heal us temporarily
The misbehaving all it makes
The ditch between us so damn deep

Built a wall around my heart
Never let it fall apart
Strangely I wish secretly
It won’t fall down while I’m asleep

If you don’t know then you can’t care
And I show up but you’re not there
But I’m waiting and you want to
Still afraid that I will desert you, babe

Everyday with every word whispered
We get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
But nothing last forever but be honest, babe
It hurts but it may be the only way

But we have not hit the ground
Doesn’t mean we’re not still falling
I want so bad to pick you up
But you’re still too reluctant to accept my help

What a shame
I hope you find somewhere
To place the blame
But until then the fact remains

Everyday with every word whispered
We get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
Nothing last forever, but be honest, babe
It hurts but it may be the only way

Everyday with every word whispered
We get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
But nothing last forever, but be honest, babe
It hurts but it may be the only way
