They say that....

Posted in

1st impressions last... so we always try to showcase our best in whatever right from the start...

They also say that a picture paints a thousand words... (Di nga?.. Thousands talaga?.. Hindi hundreds lang?.. Or millions?...) AHAHAHA!!

But seriously speaking... Tonio and I finally received the proposed layouts for our engagement album from the photo shoot we did with Wally Gonzales! And we're just so excited to share it! We made a few comments for revisions here and there, but overall, we love it!... The engagement album might also serve as our Guestbook, but we're still undecided.. the pictures are just too pretty to write on..;)

So for a sneak peek, here's the 1st page of our Engagement/Guestbook Album:

And sooooooo, what are your thoughts?...;)

(Btw, perfect timing also for this blog.. coz from today we have exactly 6 months to go 'til D-day.. ayayayay!.. ahaha!! next blog: updates!!)

Movie Date

Posted in , ,

I still remember the first time Tonio and I met as bf-gf.. It was here in SG.. I still live in PH then, but I came here with my sister.. there wasn't a second of awkwardness between us then.. It felt very natural to be hugged by him as soon as I came out of those glass doors at the Budget Terminal.. (hmm, wait.. did he grab the Krispy Kreme first?) Ahahaha!! Kidding!

Aside from touring my sister around SG (since it was her 1st time then), we also spent a day with just the 2 of us to celebrate our 1st "monthsary"..:) I remember we watched Night at the Museum at the Cathay Theater. This was the first movie we watched together.. I was never a Ben Stiller fan.. but I had fun watching this movie.. maybe it also had something to do with the company I was with...;) ehehe!

Anyway, so why am I actually writing this blog for?.. Wala naman.. ehehe!! maybe because 28 months & a proposal later, Tonio and I watched Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian..! and I found myself reminiscing those first few dates we had..:) and then I also thought of doing this:

Hmmm.. parang we look bigger today..? LOLz!!

Not one of my best layouts.. ehehe! I'll try to make another layout later...;)

About the movie, I think I liked the Part 1 better.. but Part 2 was still a fun movie to watch..:)


Our Save-The-Date!!

Posted in , ,

I already posted this actually at my Photos & Scraps Blog.. I just want to share it here too, since this will probably be our official STD..;) I think my NEED to create THE STD for our wedding... a STD that would represent our wedding themes (not so much with the colors though..;)) perfectly.. and our personalities... has been satisfied!:D We BOTH really feel that this is THE ONE for us!!;) and so, here it is....

Comments are very much welcome!:)

Now... if only the same is true with my wedding gown.....*sigh* ehehe!!

Things to keep me busy..


Like I said in my previous post, my H2B* is currently in the US for a month due to work... So while he's not here with me, I made a list of things I'll try to do to keep me busy... so I wouldn't miss him so much also na rin:

  1. Play my internet games ALL the time.. LOLz!!
  2. Organize my files (mp3s, movies, pictures, ebooks, installers, etc.) in my hard disks.
  3. Exercise??? (LOLz!!)
  4. Post-process some backlog photos.. Did a model shoot waaaaaay back, and I was just able to post/share a couple I think..
  5. (Window) shopping...?
  6. Go to a salon for some "pampering" and kakikayan..;)
There's probably more I can and will do.. but this is all I could think of at the moment.. ehehe! Of course, I'll have the occasional meet ups with friends.. and hopefully a LOT of SKYPE-time with my H2B on weekends...;)

*sigh* Oh I really really REALLY wish time flies fast this month!;)

* H2B - husband-to-be


Back to LDR..:(


Since coming here in SG*, my H2B* and I have never been separated for like more than 2 days MAX I think... We see each other every day... and that is JUST the way I want it!.. We've been in a LDR* for more than a year.. and it was really HARD!... I never wanted to be in that situation ever again...

And then we learned that H2B's company is sending him to the US for a month!!:(

Don't get me wrong.. I am happy for my fiance... at least he'll be able to go to the US.. and this is also a very good experience for him career-wise.. But of course.. it also means a month of not seeing him.. and worse.. unlike when I was still in PH* and he here in SG.. this time, with him being in US gives us a 12 HOURS time difference!:( and there's the H1N1 threat too.. I'm really hoping this month flies by really, really fast..

To my mahal, I'm missing you already! Take care there.. And I know I'll see you again soon!:) Mwah!

*H2B - Husband -to-be; SG - Singapore; PH - Philippines; LDR - Long Distance Relationship
