A few hours into a new work week and before I start with work I decided to write about the weekend. On Saturday I had a good reunion with two of my best friends from uni especially with Caroline, whom I haven’t seen in almost 2 years (and also just resurrected her fashion blog!). To cut a long story short, everything which happened became water under the bridge and all of us couldn’t be happier at how things turned out. We met for lunch at Pesto.
Dress and belt by WAGW Cebu, shoes by CELINE Philippines (not to be mistaken with the French Celiné) and ASOS Tradition Colour Briefcase. I was pretty much supporting local Philippine brands in Jakarta that day, except for the ASOS bag. Even my accessories were a gift from a good friend back in Cebu, and the pearl coated bangles were from a tourist shop in Cebu as well.
I’m such a mini me compared to my friends especially Caroline who’s super tall and still wearing heels. She told us she wanted to pursue a career as a flight attendant, of course she got our full support and now she’s applying. Good luck!!
We wanted the whole day to stretch out without parting ways yet so we decided to proceed to the mall to do a bit of shopping. I got myself a MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Modesty and Caroline and I bought matching cute synthetic two tone flats which are just the most comfortable to wear. I think one day we’re gonna wear it together, of course with different styles of clothing. We met a few friends in another cafe and had a few laughs then since Carol had another appointment, we left for yet another restaurant in the South for dessert, light dinner (yes dessert came first!) and drinks.
Speaking of desserts, I had one too many on Saturday. They were so good I forgot their names. I think I had a full Chocolate Mousse after lunch and another Hazelnut & Chocolate Mousse at night plus I also got to try Mille Feuille which are thin layers of pastry with cream and chocolate filling served with vanilla ice cream–heavenly! Dessert overload much?
I had a pretty great Saturday after a few weekends of laying low on alcohol. Lazy Sunday was spent catching up on feeds and reading One Day on my Kindle. The book is amazing so far, each chapter offers an insight to growing up and the best part is there’s a movie coming out soon, starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess who I think are just the right people to play Em & Dex respectively. I’ve been following a pattern with reading books based on growing up, just before One Day I read A Visit from the Goon Squad which was also great, albeit a little dark at times. I can’t wait to watch One Day the movie and I heard Goon Squad is going to be developed as an HBO TV Series so I can’t wait to see how that turns out too.
