TGIF (Vol. 2)

I love Fridays! Aren’t we all are?I :) These past few Fridays have been quite busy and other days than that. Though there are days that I feel lazy and unmotivated, I still do my best to get my shit done. Today is different, I had a bit of a laid back day…

My Friday in photographs:

  1. After my photo gig, my dearest friend Mariel and I had a lunch date at my new favorite bistro, Rozen Garden Bistro. The food is superb and very much affordable, and of course the aura is vintage and homey. 
  2. We had a book window shopping and we had a really fun time scanning books we can relate to. And then I saw this baby! I was really heart broken cos I’m kinda broke so it’s impossible for this book to be mine. Sad :(
  3. I’m in love with my succulents and cacti! Though I think my hands are cursed when it come to growing plants, alas i’m trying. Oh babies please don’t die on me!
  4. Spending my afternoon reading If I stay and playing games plus iced coffee, What a lovely thing to end the day. :)

I hope everyone’s having a nice Friday! And have an awesome weekend ahead! :)

No matter how much you want to be productive and prosperous, you’re just there; unmotivated, uninspired, unable to move, stuck.

I’m almost never serious, and I’m always too serious. Too deep, too shallow. Too sensitive, too cold hearted. I’m like a collection of paradoxes.

PLANT SHOPPING + STROLLING AROUND OVAL PLAZA

In this month of the year, our city celebrates Tuna Festival and during this time you can witness parades, street dancing, contests, carnival, bazaars, and there are a lot of plants shops open.

Yesterday, my best friend and I went to Oval Plaza where the carnival, bazaars, and flower shops are found. Of course, I would let this pass by without buying some plants. Last week, I hoarded a lot of succulents and cactus but I just can’t get enough! So I bought some (again) yesterday. Bwahaha. 

After buying some plants, we strolled around the food booths and bought ourselves some moon cake. It’s yummy and very affordable! I might go back again and try some more! And maybe plant shopping? :D

We also visited the bazaar and thrift shops. We didn’t buy anything though. But last week when I went there with my mom, I bought some pambahay shorts and sandals which only costs Php 150, it’s the plastic one but it’s so pretty and it’s pastel pink!

We were deciding where to have dinner when suddenly my best friend has to go for study group session. So I went to the mall alone to buy some toiletries. 

Anyway, so if you want to visit our tini tiny city, book a flight on the first week of September for the Tuna Festival or 4th week of February for the Kalilangan Festival.
