Lovely Gim

I love this photo of Gim. He looks so relaxed and cute. :)


Bella’s Cafe

Posted on 26 February 2014 by Flisha

Wicked ended around 10pm and we hadn’t yet eaten so we decided to go to Burgos Circle for dessert/dinner. We decided to dine in Bella’s Cafe, or was it Bella’s Diner, I can’t really remember the name now. I ordered steak while Gim ordered lamb. Wow, the food was really good! Tender flavorful steaks and tender but firm veggies.

For dessert we got strawberry shortcake and strawberry cheesecake. The cheesecake was just OK but the shortcake was love! Now I don’t have to go to Vizco’s in Baguio for my strawberry shortcake fix. :)

The servers were very attentive too. So I really enjoyed my dinner. :)


Wicked in the Philippines

Posted on 25 February 2014 by Flisha

International theater rarely comes to the Philippines, so when it does, I attend. Last year it was Phantom of the Opera. This year it’s Wicked.

We got 4 tickets. Me, my boyfriend, my sister and my sister’s friend. Supposedly the 4th seat was for my youngest sister but she didn’t come to Manila so we gave it to a friend instead. The seats were great. We sat at the very front row, although not center isle. But wow what an experience. We could totally see the artists up close and personal and you could hear their actual voice, not the one that comes out of the speaker. It was wonderful.

There was a gorgeous guy with clear blue eyes. Haha. Couldn’t forget!

Waiting for the next! :)


Just Me

Just me and the bilbils!


Manila Ocean

Posted on 25 February 2014 by Flisha

This is one of the rare times that I found Manila serene and beautiful. Gim and I drove out to a parking lot in Pasay, near MOA, which faced the sea. It was clean and the sea smelled fresh, and there were lots of seagulls diving for fish. We just sat and enjoyed the fleeting sunset and the fresh air. I wish there were more days like this. :)


Japanese Soy Beans

Lucky find! I saw some Japanese soy beans (aka edamame) in Cash and Carry grocery today so – decided to buy 2 packs. Now I am having them for a snack. Yum! :)

I wish they would sell these in Landmark or SM groceries – much closer to me. ;)


Twitter Spam

Posted on 21 February 2014 by Flisha

If you follow me on Twitter, don’t be surprised to see Dragonvale related messages on there.

I had to laugh when a friend of mine messaged the other day, telling me he thought I had been hacked. He even repeated one of my tweets regarding my dragons.

Well, the increase of dragon related posts is due to my newfound addiction to the tablet game -you guessed it!- Dragonvale.

It all started when HP recognized me as a “top” employee and rewarded me with an HP Slate 7. Lucky me. :) I wondered what I would do with it, since most things I needed to do I could do on my laptop. So I started downloading games. Lots and lots of games. I guess that’s what tablets are for!

I downloaded Dragonvale, which lets me breed and grow dragons, and I get gems everytime I post on Twitter about my dragons, gems which help me speed up the breeding and growing. So there. :)


Scaredy Snowy

Posted on 21 February 2014 by Flisha

I was walking my poodle Snowy earlier today and a couple of dogs barked aggressively at him. He immediately got scared, which I think did not help at all.

So many aggressive dogs lately. Little ones at that. Especially chihuahuas, oh my, I hate those little critters. They bark so loud.

There was a shih tzu we passed on the way back home, Snowy tried to smell her (at least I think it was her) from behind. She turned and tried to attack him! He was so surprised and got so scared, he froze!! And I mean, froze. He was literally frozen in fear. I had to pick him up and comfort him and lead him away from the barking dog. I carried him in my arms for a minute while he was just wide-eyed and frozen, and I kept kissing him and saying, It’s OK, It’s OK, until he relaxed and then I placed him back on the ground and we walked home.

I think he hasn’t completely gotten over his slipped disc. Maybe it still hurts him from time to time, especially when he makes sudden movements like when he’s surprised or scared. Maybe his anxiety makes him an easy target for other dogs.

Hay. I wish I could live somewhere more spacious so I could give Snow a friend so he can learn to be social.

Looking for a Cedar Box, I think it would fit in nicely with the wood theme of my condo. I don’t have a lot of space but I do have a lot of things, and I don’t want to throw things away. Especially things that go out of season, like Christmas decorations. So I put them in boxes and slide them under the bed until Christmas comes round again.

Some people don’t like multipurpose furniture but oh well not everyone can afford to live luxuriously. :)


Bills Bills Bills

Posted on 21 February 2014 by Flisha

You gotta pay them when they’re due. I learned that the hard way when I forgot to pay my Meralco bill. I usually pay online, because it’s no hassle. Well this time I forgot. And once you’re past due, even if it’s just a day past, BPI won’t let you pay online. Argh.

So I had to hunt down a Meralco business center to pay my electricity bill, because the banks wouldn’t accept it either. Haggard!

OK I confess: I made Gim do it.


Sorry, Gim.
