Why We Kept Our Wedding Intimate

Why We Kept Our Wedding Intimate

I cannot remember the exact moment when I realised I wanted to marry my then boyfriend (now husband) but I am quite sure that it was on the early stages of our relationship. Whenever we would travel, I would half kid my friends that he was going to propose already. I have this vague recollection of doing that three months in to the relationship, obviously that did not happen during that time. It happened a few years after and when I least expected it.

NT Sweat Party: NT Summer Equinox's Culminating Party

NT Sweat Party: NT Summer Equinox's Culminating Party

I feel a tad bit sad that NT Summer Equinox has ended. It was a fun-filled month meeting new friends, working out and eating (healthy). On the same time, I look forward to trying out new workouts with the girls, possibly take up some running with Adidas Runners (or maybe just their strength & conditioning) and generally just maintaining the active lifestyle and mindful eating that this programme has taught me.

NT Summer Equinox 2019

NT Summer Equinox 2019

I’ve been pestering my friends to join me on Nikki Torres’ second round of Summer Equinox but they are just not up to it. I was really hesitant to join alone. Plus, am I really going to be able to commit to four to five Saturdays to go to classes and meetups. Long story short, I put my name in the lottery and got a slot. I paid for the registration fee (P2,500) and off we go to this month long journey.

How to Renew Your Philippine Passport to Your Married Name

How to Renew Your Philippine Passport to Your Married Name

One of the things on my to-do list after the wedding is to renew my passport and change my IDs to my married name. Changing your name in Facebook is simple but going through the process of changing your status and your name is another thing. For one, I’m too lazy! Good thing that the passport renewal process is pretty straightforward that I didn’t encounter any problems at all.

Barre Formula Hong Kong Experience

Barre Formula Hong Kong Experience

When I was in Hong Kong for a short trip, I looked for a nice workout or fitness place that I can squeeze in some classes. In turn, I found Barre Formula. It was a stone’s throw away from our hotel which made it more convenient to go to. I was reluctant at first and even emailed them on what I should wear, and what to expect. Alice promptly answered my questions via email.

Finding the "Perfect" Wedding Dress

Finding the "Perfect" Wedding Dress

I thought that finding the perfect wedding dress is going to be easy. Boy, was I wrong. Like any other engaged woman, I started looking at Pinterest for inspiration. I even started pinning styles that speaks to me on my virtual board. I’m looking for a clean and minimalist wedding dress to fit our venue. No A-line ball gowns for this woman. I also have this notion that I won’t be having a dress custom made or tailored. With a little over two months left (yes, what was I even thinking during this time) before the wedding, I want something ready to wear.

Three Different Views of the Harbour Bridge

Three Different Views of the Harbour Bridge

What makes Sydney amazing is that you don’t run out of things to do. There is always a show to go to, a new place to eat out or a sight to see. It was one of those lazy summer days when the husband and I made our way to the city to for a picnic. We bought some bread at a local bakery and cold drinks from one of our favourite milk tea shops. It would have been nicer to prepare sandwiches from scratch but we’ll save that for another day.

Australian Open 2019

Australian Open 2019

I am not a big fan of tennis. Yes, I am aware of the bigwigs like Nadal, Federer, and Djokovic. A close friend of mine would constantly talk about tennis and her plans of watching a live game at the Australian Open. When a chance presented itself for me to watch the Men’s Quarter Finals of the Australian Open 2019, I was hesitant. I was thinking that I would not enjoy the day at all because who goes to a concert when you don’t even know a single song of the band playing.
