So to share the positive vibes I've been feeling this morning, here are just some of the things I'm crazy and happy about the past weeks.
A Tagaytay weekend getaway with my closest girlfriends. We've been friends for more than a decade, but we have NEVER been to an all girls OOT trip before. Most of our getaways were either school related or with boyfies. So for the first time, we figured we will be taking baby steps and start somewhere near.

The best diet disaster plan. I love it that my girlfriends are not diet freaks and they really know how to enjoy food. Because honestly, it's one of the greatest pleasures in life, and I'm not shying away from it. In a span of 36 hours, we dined at some of Tagaytay's finest: Bag of Beans, Buon Giorno and Hawaiian Barbeque. To quote my BFF, "parang bawal na kumain ng di masarap after this!"

|Breakfast Sampler. The BEST longganisa ever.|
|Cheese Omelette. Simple dish that is surprisingly yummy!|
|The BIDA of the day. Blueberry Cheesecake. |
It made all others I've tasted plain and blah.

|Grape Shake. |
Good enough, though IMO, Cibo's is still better. But the muscle mug is so cute, no?
Gusto ko iuwi. Haha.
|New York Pizza is surprisingly filling despite its thin crust!|

|Baby Back Ribs is tenderly sinful.|
|Admittedly, this is the BIDA this time. Baked Potatoes with Creamy Cheese Sauce.|
|Because I can't live on red meat alone. Fisherman's Catch with butter, sweet sauce and mayo wasabi.|
|Coconut, Bananas, Mallows, Ice Cream and Sprinkles.|
The birth of bulk buying sites. To be honest, I'm a little late when it comes to this one. Not that I'm caving somewhere google virgin, but because I know myself too well. I'm not very good at holding off on great deals; and it so happened that I'm also aware that no matter how good the deals are, you still stash cash at the end of the day. After a few months of being thrifty (of which I'm proud of), I lifted the ban and started enjoying the deals like most internet crazy people I know. To date, I bought food coupons, yoga classes, cinema tickets and spa treatments. It's amorning habit to check them! Whoever invented this mode of marketing/saving scheme, is plain genius. And I really want to hug them right now.
|Old School still rocks|
Because it's just too fun to be a girl and dress up. Since my friends and relatives decided to make 2011 their "this is it" year to get married, I also decided that it's time to emancipate myself from wearing my signature black dress because it's really not the appropriate color for such happy celebration of love. I'm starting to experiment with other bold colors now, and I'm starting to substitute black with purple. And here's how a girl gets giddily confused.
|Should I go dainty for a change?|
|Or hug my curves without a care?|
|Should I skip desserts to fit in this?|
|Or play a dangerous vixen?|
|ME: Look oh, this dress is sooo nice! Sayang no more Large size|
BF: Kamusta naman ang balakang mo? *grins* (how's that for hips!)
ME: Uhm, okay naman sya.
Stay happy and may today be a start of an awesome week! =)
