I just got home after watching the last full show of Miss You Like Crazy at Shangri-La. I am at the moment experiencing an aftershock... kinikilig pa rin ako! Although actually, it’s not a typical kilig or cutie-cutie movie. This one is mature. There is a bed scene - oh okay, a "floor scene" to be exact. And I won’t be surprised if Bea or John Lloyd cried literally a bucket of tears for this.

Craving for C2's Crispy Kare-Kare

A friend, who really has high standards when it comes to food because her family owns a famous restaurant in Bicol, recommended C2 Classic Cuisine. So we decided to have a dinner there, four of us, at their branch at Level 6 of Edsa Shangri-La Plaza. And oh gosh it was such a gastronomic treat!

Our Honeymoon In El Nido

Our honeymoon was extra special, extra unforgettable (yes that’s possible!) because we were blessed to be in one of the most beautiful place in the world - El Nido, Palawan. We booked a 4 days / 3 nights package at the Lagen Island Resort of El Nido Resorts. Though before going there I already had high expectations based from friends’ recommendations, it still blew me away. El Nido Palawan is a paradise on earth, one of the best places to commune with nature. And we should take pride that it's located in our very own country... gosh we are very lucky indeed!

No To The Bouquet Toss

We received a lot of praises regarding our reception program. Many of our guests congratulated us, saying that they were impressed and truly enjoyed it a lot. It was neither too long nor too short. It was just perfect, they said. Again, thanks to our wedding planner. She did a wonderful job in organizing the flow, advising us on what to do and what to avoid, and recommending the best people (emcee, sounds and lights) to make it work. Truly, she is an expert.

Here are some bits I picked up. I hope these tips will help you plan your wedding reception program.

Valentine's Day

Yesterday I woke up to the sound of someone banging on our door. When my flatmate informed me that there’s an Island Rose delivery outside for me, I was genuinely surprised. I had thought such sweet gestures would stop when we got married. But apparently my hubby is just inherently romantic. Truly, lucky me :)

I really do hope it would be his last purchase with Island Rose. Not because I am dissatisfied with their merchandise, it is because it would mean that next Valentines I get to finally celebrate it the proper way. With him. Now where the h**l is my visa?!

A Photobooth Is A Sure Winner!

It was a very good call we hired Partypics photobooth during our wedding reception. Since Filipinos just love having their photos taken, it was selling like hotcakes. Oh boy, our guests totally loved it! I could notice them queuing not just once at the Partypics corner. And they treasure the pictures. I even suspect they treasure it more than our official souvenirs because when we visited our relatives’ homes days after the wedding we could see their Partypics photos proudly displayed in the living room. Some friends immediately uploaded and used theirs as Facebook profile photo.

Our Gorgeous Wedding Pictures

Just 4 days after we got engaged I immediately inquired if Mimi and Karl were still available for our wedding. They were not only still available but Hana, their very efficient studio manager, kindly informed me that they were not yet open for 2009 bookings. (Well of course! Our big day was still a year and a half away. Haha!) Hana then assured she would email me when they do.

As soon as I got the email from her that they were now accepting 2009 bookings, I immediately wired the money for the reservation fee. I remember being so ecstatic when I received the confirmation that yes, we booked them.
