Simple Joys

I had a perfect day today.

I arrived at Nail Spa to claim the treat I won from Dainty Mom. (Thanks Martine!)

And caught Paola and Martine inhaling macarons. (These were HEAVEN. I have to order)

Celebrity sighting. I’ll treat the one who correctly guesses who this guy is to a milk tea drink. Earlier, his daughter was there in her ballet outfit to attend her dance class in Shang. I pretended to take pics of the macarons to get this shot. (Pistachio, chocolate and red velvet flavors. I really have to order)

Busy mommies deserve nice toes. (Nice legs, Paola!)

Paola and I went to Chatime in Pioneer Center.

The area upstairs is perfect for lounging, studying, and chatting. They have free WiFi too. I had the Chatime Roasted Milk Tea with Pearl. Yummeh.

Sjofn is seriously adorable.

And then it was off to Galerie Anna for an exhibit.

I relish the times when I can be a mother, a friend, a woman and a wife, all in the same day. There are days when it’s all mommymommymommymommymommy.

Exhale.

Smile.

  1. I can’t help but be inggit haha! I can only dream about being a sahm or a wahm… and have a girls day out during weekdays. I feel so stuck in my 9-7 job. haha nagdrama.. i love chatime! basta milk tea with pearls yummy!

    1. Kausapin na ang asawa. :p Pero these times make it really hard for one-income families. Even as a stay-at-home mom before, I was always on the look-out for “racket”.

  2. How do you even do it? Nail spa, massage, shopping! I vowed to go back to reading a couple of weeks ago and it takes precious sleeping hours off my schedule! I only get to do it when the kids hit the bed.

    1. Easy. I don’t sleep, diba? :p This comes with a sacrifice. After a full day out, I had to do an all-nighter with The Job. Worked till 6am, fell asleep at 7am, awake by 830am. Basti woke me up pa for a feed.

      1. But I cannot not sleep. Baby #3 needs me to rest. In fairness, I had my nails done yesterday but by our helper lang who knows how (manicure first cause Gia woke up so pedicure due today, haha, installment!) — syempre nasa bahay pa din! But, good enough :)

  3. Nevs: I’ll DM you a hint, pero baka ma-disqualify ka, haha

    Eli! Super fun nitong araw na to! Can’t wait for Tian Di, buti nalang deal natin nabili yon or it wouldn’t have met our criteria!

    1. Oo nga! But if the experience is as good as reviews say, I won’t mind splurging for it when I REALLY, REALLY NEED IT.

  4. wow, this is a feat! you had time to get your nails done again =) Happy for you!! Who is this artista? Baka naman taga-showtime na naman yan at hindi ko na naman ma-get.

    1. Hahaha! No one guessed so with this comment I hereby revoke my “contest”. He appears in many ice-cream commercials with his wife and 2 kids.
