I was not expecting this. But it happened!

My lovely bridesmaids threw me a surprise bridal shower! -Not posting group photos for the privacy of everyone involved! hahahaha! seriously, it was very wholesome, good food, great friends and a family get together all rolled into one party.

May I also add that the place looked superb?! I loved all the party decor! Most of the decor are a labor of love-DIY!!! – the venue is our soon to be home. 

Standing slow clap for all the girls! And to my two MOHs-you have blown me away!

owl themed! =) Cake and cupcakes are gifts from my cousins- It is a Sugarbox fondant chocolate cake, the owl giveaways are lovingly prepared by Kei’s sister and my childhood friend! The super cute wedding dolls are from my childhood friend and churchmate! 

Almost did not want to cut the cake because I find it too cute!!! However the chocolate cake inside is so good that I managed to eat a lot of it!

I felt so grateful and loved. –The prenup/wedding related posts would have to wait… I am still not over sorting the photos and since the wedding day is fast approaching I am really really busy. 

Till the next post!

a candy crush life

I am on level 245, and has been stuck for a week. Once I get through this I need tickets to get me to the next level.

Yes, I am talking about Candy Crush.

Candy Crush Saga

I love this game, my friends like it, even my mum plays it! It is simple and entertaining. I find it really helpful when I am passing time. I get excited and feel accomplished when I pass a level. I feel giddy when my friends send me lives and additional moves to help me get through the current level.

I never win straight. I win some then lose some. At times it takes a lot of tries to advance.

It also gets annoying when I have just one move left and I still need 2 moves to win. I shout a loud arrrrggghhh to show my frustration. But, I always get back and try again.

Funny that it resembles life. Persist till you win. Count on your friends to back you up.

 

A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success. -Elbert Hubbard

born in january

While having breakfast, my office friends  and I shared a laugh over our different personalities and our office mates and linked them according to their birthdays. (ie. October born- likes to party)

I got curious about what my birth month says about me… my office friends say that January born are stubborn. I sort of agree, but not completely.

So, after breakfast, I googled it up. I am born January 23. Although here in the Philippines there is no winter, I am considered as winter born.

This is the first thing I got:

People born in January are ambitious and hardworking. They are smart, organized, and productive. Although they are serious, they are also funny and love to joke around. They love to teach people new things as much as they love learning new things. They are very cautious and careful when it comes to money. They are usually quiet and reserved unless they are excited. People born in January are not often sick but when they are it is most commonly with a cold. On the negative side, they are also stubborn and hard-headed. They are also jealous and like to criticize others. (After a few more googling, I found out that I share my birth month with Kate Middleton! I like her fashion style.)

interesting? look for yours: http://voices.yahoo.com/personality-birth-month-1771589.html

Then, I tried to be specific. Typed in my birth date (January 23) and these are the results:

You are a practical idealist. While you have a strong need for security, you need to mix up your routines frequently or else you easily feel antsy. You are excellent at organizing, but others may not understand your system! Managing money is a skill. You are very resourceful and versatile, and a strong individualist. Following through on all of your ideas is something you have trouble doing, and you eventually learn that focusing on a few brings you more success. Famous people born today: Jeanne Moreau, Princess Caroline of Monaco, John Hancock. (Wow! I share a birthday with a princess! Maybe I am a princess too! hahahaha!)

Aquarians born January 23 are hard-headed realists whose personas reflect a strong, silent type. They have a toughness about them that’s laudable and useful: They seem to handle anything. Inside, though, they’re tender souls. Often put in the position of role model, they do not generally regard their conduct as anything special. January 23 natives enjoy the social elements of friendship. They make gentle, caring lovers. They have an aversion to commitment, though it’s not uncommon for them to enter a long-term relationship or marriage when they find someone who shares their views. January 23 people have pride in their family background. Many of the ideals and traits they exhibit were absorbed from their family. When they become parents, they may feel pulled between providing discipline and endorsing a more liberated parenting style. People born on January 23 like to do things their way. They don’t take kindly to health or nutritional advice. An annual visit to a health-care professional should not invalidate their independence. Because of the sensitivity of their systems, they should shun smoking and drinking. Like many Aquarian people, January 23 natives are not the sort who can work at a job they find boring or uncreative. They have a potential to earn a good deal of money, though they usually spend it faster than they make it. Friends and relatives are often the beneficiaries of their generosity. Not having to pretend they are something they aren’t is a major goal sought by January 23 people. They are motivated to achieve career success and may not realize until late that they also want personal stability. They want to be the best at what they do. They take criticism well and are able to look at themselves objectively.

*this is sort of summarized from: http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/family/january-23-birthday-astrology.htm (You can also find yours there, just click on your birth month.)

And a bit of clicking around lead me to this very detailed personality by birthday site: http://birthdaypersonality.tumblr.com/post/6239518428/23-january-the-birthday-of-the-dissenter and found myself nodding to everything that was written. (you can look for yours too, look at the bottom right part of the site)

For entertainment, I found it fun to read.

What about you what does your birth month/birth date say about you?

choosing joy

I am currently stuck in a lot of work. That I neglect my blog, fail to see my friends and just hit the sack when I get home. I barely have time for myself.

Skipped going to the dentist to get my braces adjusted, even forgot to see my dermatologist!

Every night, I go check Facebook just to be in the know about what is happening in my circle of friends and somehow I cannot relate. Its like I’m trapped in an alternate world where all I see is other people’s blessings. I see their happy faces, travel pictures, family outings, new bags, nice clothes, shiny cars and the latest dose of gossip (who is with whom, who is seen in where…etc.).  I then think about how badly I want a vacation, daydream about leaving and travelling… that always ends with I wish I have more money. Then I get sad.

But, this time my self pitying was halted by a pop up chat message from an old friend.

It says:  Sorry for disturbing your evening but, can I please ask for help? I will be blunt. I am jobless for more than a year, I can barely keep up with my living expenses I need a job. please help.

Bam! Instant reality check.

While I was busy complaining that I am buried in a pile of work, my friend desperately prays for work.

I was appalled at my behavior and quickly thanked God for the daily blessings I receive.

Then proceeded to look at the net for some leads that could fit my friend. After a while some of my friends found something for the friend in need.

There is a lot to be thankful for.

Thank God for everyday blessings and carry on a positive attitude.
