BLUE and REDssssss

The celebration happened a week ago, but the actual birthday happens this week! 😉  Having said that, I just want to say HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my friend/featured traveler/fellow blogger CAROL!!!

Happy Birthday, C! ♥

But aside from that, one of the things that made that day blog-worthy was how we all looked like with our blue-and-red ensemble! =))

See?  How can you not “document” a day like that?  Hahaha!

And oh!  If you’re wondering WHERE this took place, it was at Diamond Hotel’s Corniche restaurant:

“…Corniche offers an exceptional breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffet spread and an extensive all-day a la carte menu.  The buffet selection is composed of Asian, Western, Japanese, salad, and dessert stations, all meticulously prepared by culinary experts.  Featuring signature cakes and pastries for dining and take-out orders is a cake shop at the Corniche entrance.”

dessert > Mika!

That’s pretty much it.  I just had to make this quick and simple. 🙂  So again…

Happy Birthday, Carol!
May you enjoy your day (even though I know you have exams in law school!)

We love you.
I love you.

I still wish we had videoke, though. Haha, PEACE!!!

xoxo, M.

Gotta Love A Travel-Themed Debut ♥

First of all, I’d like to greet the debutante, Rossell, a HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!! 🙂

Ingenious theme; gorgeous debutante ♥♥♥

Anyway, the last debut I attended was more than three years ago…  and that was the debut of Rossell‘s Achie Minnie.  In fact, I also blogged about it on!  You can check it out here. 😉  Time flies sooo fast that I can’t even fit into the dress I wore for Minnie‘s cotillion!  Wahahahaha!

2008 and 2012 (don’t even mention the 30 lbs. I gained! HA HA HA)

Going back to Rossell‘s debut, it was truly a night to remember!  And based on this post’s title, you can already tell what its theme was: TRAVEL! ♥♥♥

Actually, Rossell‘s Achie Minnie was my very first featured traveler when I started my 2012 blog project — click here! 😀  So no surprise there at all because their family truly loves traveling.

From the invitation…

The Lady’s “passport” to Rossell’s travel-themed debut ♥

the stage…

Eiffel Tower, anyone?

down to the cake!

Talk about EDIBLE LUGGAGE!!!

Everything was truly lovelovelove.

Plus, I was able to catch up and DANCE (haha!) with friends I haven’t seen in a looong time!  Perfect night, indeed!

Special mention goes to my seatmates during that night: Stephanie, Bianca, and John!  Heehee. 😛

And of course, thanks to my friend Carol for my dress that night!!!

Thanks, C! ♥♥♥

And that’s it!  Once again, I’d like to greet Rossell a HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!  Thanks for inviting me!  From The Lady to another lady, may all your wishes come true and I wish you all the best in your studies and future career — Doktora Rossell diba?  Hehe.  Stay gorgeous and sweet.  Love you!

Ate Mika xx


Thank You, Idol Patty (Laurel)! :D

I’ve already mentioned several times that daPATTYLAUREL is my most favorite blogger!  In fact, it’s actually her who I credit for “resurrecting” my interest in blogging after being on hiatus!  (Masyado naman akong feeling at may haya-hiatus pa’kong nalalaman!  Hahaha!)

Anyway, I still dream of meeting her in person…  Like I said, she’s the “Kate Middleton” in my blogging life!  But for now, I think I’ll be content with this:

THE note from daPATTY! ♥

WOAH.  Was that for real?! @_@  How did I receive a one-of-a-kind note like this, you may ask?  Very well.  Let’s STOP here…  And then press REPLAY.


Actually, Patty Laurel has several “contests” on her blog and luckily, I was able to win one! 😀

THE e-mail ♥

It was the Neutrogena gift pack — which I was finally able to claim today!!!  Yay!  I had to answer the question: “What’s your most effortlessly beautiful moment?” — at ang sagot, sa amin nalang ni Idol Patty yun Sikretong malupit!  Basta, it’s one kalurKEYT MIDDLETON answer!  Nanalo nga ako diba?  (Chos, bente kaya kaming nanalo!)

But seriously, naging totoo naman ako sa sarili ko…  I swear!  Naniniwala yata ako na honesty is STILL the best policy!  Wahahahaha!

Wala lang.  I just really had to blog about THIS!!!  Of course, check out Idol Patty Laurel’s blog at 🙂

A happy new year, indeed! ♥

Thank you again, Idol Patty!!!

Mwah, mwah, mwah.

From one Idol to another…

Before I forget…

HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the person who inspires me the most:

Kate Middleton
The Duchess of Cambridge

Your #1 fan,
Lady Mikhaela Georgette
