Anne's Bridal Shower

Event Date:  January 1, 2015 3PM

After a successful New Year's Eve party, Aunt Lisa organized a bridal shower for Anne.
In all honesty, first time ko maka attend na hindi friends lang ang kasama.

Earlier before the party, Glenn and I picked up Uncle Willie from the airport
Glenn and Uncle willie went straight to Tagaytay while I enjoyed the party.

#RamLizWedding

My cousin Sarah got married last December 29, 2014 at Le Jardin Rosella in Tagaytay City.
Its the best wedding service I have attended.

I took a small part in the wedding preparation.
Through this wedding, i became closer to  my cousins.
Wedding prep is stressful, and i made it more stressful to them by giving some ideas.
I actually miss our viber conversation.

Nakakaloka na ang kabonggahan ng mga wedding ngayon.
Meron na palang nagaganap na Starbucks Out of Store experience.
The bride wanted it so bad, i think its around 15,000 for 80cups.
But Starbucks wont do out of store from October-January since its peak schedule.
Nakakaloka lang..

And then for prenup... there's this place called Studio Namu na iba't ibang theme.
You rent the place for i think P6000 venue fee for 4 hours shoot.

The wedding was so nice.
Very solemn ceremony but its not to uptight.
At the reception - ang ganda ganda ng entrance.  Ang laking factor pala ng entrance.
Parang ang saya saya na buong program.

Overdue Post: Tokyo with Borjzilla

Trip Date:  Dec 7- 10, 2014

The first time i was in Japan in 2005 (i think), it was a 1 week business trip.
I arrived on Sunday night, worked from Monday to Friday, then left Saturday morning.

The only place ive been were Narita Airport, Shonan Dai hotel, Ministop, IBM office, a japanese resto with videoke and an italian restaurant.  I had ONE picture in that whole trip.

Early in 2014, i was sent to Tokyo for a conference
Im checking my blogpost on that - waaah! hindi ko pala naiblog!!!!
How tamad i was, that was a perfect business trip - no presentation to worry about, no companion,I just have to take all the flyers, in Tokyo.

Anyway, when i got back from that trip -  i said i want to go there with Glenn.

So, lahat ng piso fare - inabangan ko.
I booked a lot pero hindi prepaid.  Tipong i book muna, tapos discuss kay Glenn - if he is OK i go ahead and pay within the specified time.

Finally pumayag sya in March for December trip. Yey!

FARE

Wow ang Fuel surcharge!  Ngayon ay no fuel surcharge - sige, testingin nyo lang magpiso fare ngayon. hehehe.

Its 12,500 excluding insurance and luggage.  Eh saka ko na yun isipin pag malapit na.

JAPAN VISA
I had a 1 year multiple from my previous visa kaya i dont need to get another.
I applied for Glenn.  Dahil kailangan personal mo isusubmit sa agency yung requirements and busy si Glenn.  I opted to do the submission of requirement via courier.  Mail the requirements and Passport and pay via bank.  P1,200 ang processing fee.
After 3 days, we had Glenn's visa.  5 Years multiple yey!

WARDROBE
December is winter, when i was there in January - 6oC is killing me!
Buti mother in law sent a puff jacket and lots of winter clothes.  I need  not buy anything.
Glenn just got one jacket.
Nope, im not into boots :D

HOTEL
I wanted to stay in Shibuya or Harajuku area because thats where Glenn will be a lot of times.
Ewan ko ba, i booked a hotel in Asakusa area.
Hotel Sunroute Asakusa for 3 nights total of P10,300.

BEFORE THE DEPARTURE
Akalain mong meron bagyo.  Supertyphoon.  Na tatama sa Manila-Cavite area.
Alam mo yung stress na tutuloy ba or hindi?  International news are talking about this supertyphoon.  Iba iba ang projected forecast nila on supertyphoon Hagupit.
Sabi ng isang kasama ko.. dont worry, baka hindi maglandfall sa Philippines - baka sa Japan.
Aehehe..dun kami papunta eh.
So i did not prepare any itinerary because i dont know kung tutuloy or hindi.
Actually tanggap ko na kung hindi matuloy eh.

Hindi pa naglalanfall sa Eastern Visaya when we left.  Good thing nagweaken sya ng bongga.

So ayun, we went there without any itinerary.
The pictures here are from Glenn's instagram

DEC 7:  DEPARTURE from MNL | HARAJUKU | SHIBUYA | RIKUGIEN GARDEN
Our departure was 525AM.
We left Cavite at 2AM.  I didnt get sleep kasi galing pa ako sa trabaho and i packed and fixed some stuff.  Glenn had a little rest din kasi he was nursing our dog Oscar.

When we got to NRT, we took the train to Asakusa.
Ofcourse i scouted for the most economical way with least train transfer.
Its 1.5hours train ride.

We had a little trouble looking for the hotel.
I still cant rely on Glenn's excellent navigation skills because he didnt study the area pa.
He is only good pag nakarating na at babalikan mo.

Hay salamat we got the hotel at around 1PM.
Then glenn told me we got to hit the streets at 3PM. Sayang daw oras.
What? already?  Ok fine.
He needs me, he cant travel kasi hindi nya pa aral ang train network.

I got us a train pass for JR/Toei/Tokyo Metro for 1560Yen/day
Para magkawala wala man kami - oki lang.  Usual one way kasi is around 260-360Yen.

First stop.. Harajuku
I wanted to see the teenagers dressed uhmmm..different?






Next.. Shibuya

Pinilit ko sa Glenn na we go see the Rikugien Park Autum Light up.
Its the last day of illuminated park.
I didnt know we had to pay 300Yen each.
It wasnt hard to find the place, pero tama si Glenn - we should just have seen it during daylight.

The park was huge, grabe ang pagod ko talaga!
Kung idea ni Glenn ito, malamang tinoyo na ako. hehehe

Kung ako ang tatanungin - its a wrap na.
Pero bumalik kami sa harajuku to eat.

It would be nice if we had like this in the Philippines, hindi ka na kukulitin if you want to upsize. Hehehe

DEC 8 ODAIBA | GINZA
We planned to wake up early pero sobrang pagod, medyo late narin kami nagising.
We went to Odaiba, familiar ako sa place na ito because this is where i stayed dati.
What i like about going to Odaiba is the Yurikamome train.

Us with Gundam..finally!
I love this photo Glenn took of me.. ganda-gandahan



Yes, Glenn got to take home one :D




DAY 3 - UENO | ASAKUSA | AKIHABARA | SHIBUYA
Ueno Park early morning.  Love!






This, by far is the best trip Ive had with Glenn.
Great weather, i love the food here, people are so nice.  I LOVE IT HERE!!!!

We'll definitely go back.  I dont know after how many years, but will see you again Japan!

Live shopping

Yesterday, MIL called asking us what we need because they were on their way to Walmart to send us groceries.  I couldnt think of anything more because she sends us everything.  But we figured she'll send a box anyway, might as well think of something.  Olive oil and velveeta with jalopeno! :)
Glenn wants Chamba Chai and Special K cereal :)

Minutes later, Glenn's messenger kept popping, Josen sending him photos of what's in store and have us pick out. Wow live shopping!

Josen: etong chai, gusto mo?
Glenn:  yoko nyan, Chamba chai kirkland ata yun.

Josen: Anong sa cookies dito?
Glenn:  Kahit ano, basta mura

Josen: sensitive ba teeth nyo!
Glenn:  Kahit ano, kung ano mura

Humirit si Glenn ng...
"Anong hotwheels dyan?"
Josen posts... Konti lang, panget.

I am reminded to use whats in my pantry. 
Bago pa magka expire-expire.  So i cooked lemon pepper chicken wings and     
cooked the beans in can.



Ano na naman kaya ang mailuto para bukas...

Sige bile!

Bili ng bili para gawin ganito....
Tsk...tsk..

7th Wedding Anniversary

We both filed vacation leave.
I didn't know why, so i scheduled passport renewal on this day to make our day a little productive.
Our passports will expire April 2015 pa, pero diba you cant use it pag 6months before the expiry? (bakit ba ganun?! Miski 3)
Ayoko na umabsent pa kami ulit.  I booked for an appointment in Megamall (dun available ang slot for 28th during the time of booking).

I was telling Glenn we should eat at Vikings, pero hesitant sya kasi luge daw.

On the way to Megamall, ang lakas ng ulan.

We made it on time.
Wow, ganda na pala ng Megamall

Ofcourse, a trip to Uniqlo is required.
Ako padin ang nasunod .... we had our lunch at Vikings.
Glenn had 5 sets of this.  Now tell me kung hindi sulit?

 Sinulit ni Glenn, cheesecake, velvet cake, tamarind juice, 2 different shots of coffee, green tea and avocado ice cream.
We had nice time from 1230-230.
I believe it was sulit.  Lunch rate on Weekdays is P688.

Check out our photo session at red house..


 Nagulat kami na nagvolunteer si dadi to join us, so we called mom din :D
