I know it’s past the middle of January, but still, HAPPY NEW YEAR! 😉
Since I was so family-oriented almost the whole December, I craved for the company of my girls. And what do you know, I had to squeeze in two super fun get-togethers within a day!
So what did I wear? Bilang debut ko sa outside world on this day this year, call it jologs, but I wore polka dots! Hehe.
Details, details, details:
- Polka-dot kimono from Jewels (I bought this along with the kimono I wore to Uno’s birthday party)
- Lavender cotton camisole from ukay
- Black pants from Sasch Jeans Italy
- Dominant blue pumps with yellow and pink details from VNC
- Soft leather bucket bag with leather and metal handles from Diesel
- Purple wooden earrings from either Festival Mall or Greenhills Shopping Center (I forgot)
My first “booking” for the day was with my Small Group/Bible Study posse. I regret that I was not able to prepare for our first meeting of the month. I originally intended to bring something really special, but at that time we were understaffed (Yaya Isay was on vacation and I have just fired another female helper).
Here’s our group photo:
If you notice, we were all young professionals…right Mama Gi and Mama Mir? 😉
At ang newest member naming si Lesly kinabog ako nang bonggang-bongga! Boots pa lang, laway na ako! Sinamahan pa ng necklace!
And what funny coincidence! Three girls were wearing pants with the same color! Of course, it deserves a moment:
After a fun sharing of our 2012 “stones”, I rushed to meet my DevCom Square of Friends. Square, because there are four of us. We’ve been tight since our sophomore year in college. We almost kept only to ourselves and we almost did not let anyone enter our group. We have survived so many things, some of which were pretty serious stuff.
This get-together is ultra special because our soon-to-be-a German citizen friend Katrina Borromeo-Schmeling is visiting the country.
And to celebrate our reunion with her, we watched One More Try. Much to her disgust. Hehe.
Kat and I really wanted to watch Thy Womb because aside from the international and local accolades it got, its writer Henry Burgos was our batchmate/classmate in college. Henry and Kat were also pretty tight.
But blame it on the Filipinos’ under-appreciation of a real obra maestra, Thy Womb was pulled out of theaters because of a lackluster box office performance. 🙁 Sigh, I look forward to the time when more Filipinos actually look forward to thought-provoking films. So it was either “One More Chance” or “Sossy Problems”. Wasn’t really a tough choice.
What do we have to say about One More Try? Cultured Kat hated it; Chrys and Zaira enjoyed watching out for Zanjoe Marudo’s scenes (na for some reason ay laging paiyak–my friend Zaira said it could be that all Zanjoe’s co-stars were already good actors ergo he has to emote even before a real crying scene should come); and I was touched. “Semi-cultured” din naman ako (as I enjoy indie films and do not enjoy 100% of Star Cinema films in the last decade), but as the only mom in the group, thr plot of the movie tore me apart. Sh*t, paano nga kung ganun ‘no? If I weren’t a mom yet I’ll easily side with Angelica–no way talaga that I’d let anyone touch my man! But I get Angel’s character–moms are really willing to bend over backwards just for their children’s sake. Hell, I won’t mind being called names or becoming a social pariah if it meant saving my child.
After the movie, we went to my place and chatted the night away. 🙂 What a way to cap off the evening.
I definitely got my dose of girltalk that day, and I look forward to more this 2013 🙂
Tell me what you think!
