Good Times!

Families are the compass that guide us. They are the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter.

Family Time at Serendra

Our family is fond going out and exploring new places here in Metro Manila. We always try to hang out in places where there is no need to spend a lot of money to enjoy. Serendra in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig is one of the many places we love going to. It actually looks like a park to me, surrounded by many expensive restaurants as well as expensive boutiques. We go there just to walk around, take pictures and spend time window shopping in the glamorous boutiques. We all love their Nike store because it's big and they always have new products. Each of us always find something we want to buy but most of the time, we can't afford them. Hahaha! But we were able to buy several things from Nike over the years because it's one of the best stores in the world for us! I'll make a post about that soon. =) Anyway, Serendra is truly a wonderful place to hang out with your family and friends. They also have beautiful and interesting fountain areas and a wide play area where kids can walk, run and play freely. You can even bring your pet dogs with you and just stroll around. The lights from the boutiques give the place a relaxing atmosphere at night. Here are other pictures taken at Serendra.

Digi and Ger stopped for a while to rest after a long walk. Here's Gerard giggling while his daddy's giving him a big kiss on the cheek.

Comfy Flip Flops

If you are someone close to me, you certainly would know that I love wearing flip flops. They are simply very comfortable to wear but of course they should be worn appropriately. I only wear them at home, in the mall, during small get togethers, during rehearsals and during our family funtime. I don't have cute feet but I prefer to wear flip flops whenever possible because the feeling of being able to move your feet freely is quite relaxing for me. I'd love to have a huge collection, maybe collect all colors but I won't go for the overly decorated ones (not sure if that's how I should describe them) because it would be hard for me to find clothes that would match them. I only have a limited selection of clothing nowadays because I gained weight, (Aww, do I really need to mention that?) but I'm glad I have black and white, which are neutral colors and those colors match anything!
Here's a photo of the flip flops that my sister Glenda gave me.

Irresistible Perfumes

One thing the hubby and I have in common is our love for perfume. We have a pretty small collection of our favorite scents and of course, in every perfume collection, there's always one scent that would stand out among all other fragrances. Something that we would be always comfortable wearing, whether we have too much or not enough on. Our choice of perfume in every single day or ocassion depends on our mood, we don't usually consult each other about what to use when we go out on dates because honestly, I adore every scent the hubby has and he carries himself very well so the perfume just adds flair to his overall look.

Chie's Favorite:
CK One Summer unisex fragrance
for Summer 2006.

Fragrance Notes Tangerine, Pineapple, Grapefruit, Frangipani,
Sea Breeze, Palm Sap, Driftwood, Hot Sand Effect, Glistening Skin Musks.

I love using CK Summer! I feel fresh and confident all day.

Digi's Favorite:
SAFARI, created by RALPH LAUREN, was introduced in 1992.

This fine fragrance contains lemon, eucalyptus, juniper and is accented with thyme, cinnamon and leather making SAFARI perfect for formal use.

Gerard's Favorite:
Tommy cologne for men, made by Tommy Hilfiger, was launched in 1995.
This fragrance for men contains a blend of tangy citrus, cranberry and
cinnamon apple pie.

Yes, our son has his own favorite too. He uses Tommy when he goes to school and when we go to church every Sunday. He likes using his daddy's Nautica Competition perfume too.
