The Old Spaghetti House

As I told you, I've been staying at the jungle for almost a month now. And I am beginning to chance my weekend-girlfriend status since the love of my existence and I is able to see each other almost everyday. I'm still on the blind side, still trying to be accustomed to things that I'm not really familiar with. I get tired everyday. I miss my long hours of sleep. I miss shopping for cheap things. I miss my Mum's dishes. I miss Isha ( I bet you don't don't who Isha is. But I promise to tell you about her when my elements return). I miss my Dad's nagging. I miss my room and my super comfy bed. I miss everything about home. But I'm also beginning to love everything around me now. The chance to see my boyfriend whenever I want to. The new things I'm learning and new friends I'm gaining. Plus, I had a ton of places to choose from when my tummy growls because of hunger. As being the unadventurous me, good thing dear boyfriend's there to drag me anywhere so we could try new things.
And one of our dine out is at The Old Spaghetti House.

The Old spaghetti House is a pizza and pasta restaurant. It has a lot of branches in the Philippines and we ate at the  Walter Mart branch at Chino Roces near Jr's office.
For more info about the wonderful resto. Click here.
For the rest of the menu, click here.

The theme was cute and amazing. I remembered my Great Grandma's house when I saw the chairs. She had  a dinning set very similar to it. Plus, the place has these old antique vibe also. With matching wood fading walls. I find it really nice and attractive. :)

Jr had American Baked Spareribs. With matching Java rice and nachos. It was good. Jr was able to finish everything. The spare rib has this sweet tangy taste. It was okay for me. My rate? Three stars. :)

Whilst I had US Beef Bistro Steak with Parmesan Spaghetti. I was first doubtful with the Parmesan spaghetti and I even asked if I could change my pasta, but it wasn't allowed so I decided to give it a try. The pasta was good but the steak gave me disappointment. I told the waiter that I wanted my steak well done but when it was handed over. It was over cooked! Imagine what an over cooked beef tastes like. Enough words. My rate? Two stars. :p

The Golden Oreos cheered me up.  It's a battered oreos fried till golden brown. It also has chocolate syrup and vanilla ice cream. It really made my heart melt. Lovely! Ratings? Five stars! Generous! lol.

The idiots. We look dumb I know. We can't help but look foolish. We were so hungry! :)
Funny we didn't order the classic spaghetti since we're in a Spaghetti House. Right? :p

Eating made me happy. It was fun trying out new things. I wish I could let you into more of our dinning experience. I will try to blog as much as I can. I'm being lazy for the past couple of weeks. And I noticed I'm blabbering too much too. Again, I will try to blog with sense next time. Till then...

Love lots,

I am So LOVED!

I turned 24 last Sunday and I was so overwhelmed by the love that I received that day. First off. I went home to celebrate my natal day with my family. We just had lunch together, nothing fancy since I was really tired and I wanted to sleep for more than eight hours and my Mum was so busy as well. I also tried to went to the salon for a pamper-me-time but my attempt failed because my stylist was not available and I just went home with my haggard and old self. After spending little time with my family I went to  back to the jungle since I needed to get ready for work the following day. And by the way I went to church as well, as much as possible, I try my best to make it to church every Sunday or at least once a week. I thanked God for all the wonderful things that He has done for me. Words will indeed never be enough.

I'm twenty four. I'm a year older. I am happier but I'm still finding my way to contentment. I still got a lot of things to pursue. A lot of things to achieve, to experience, to learn and to gain. I don't find life easy nor fair but I'm enjoying every single moment of it. I had regrets, that's for sure. But I'm trying not to hold onto them. Sometimes, I find it hard to let go on things, but as I grow older, I learn to let simple things don't bother me. But memories are buried deep, for I am the kind of person who doesn't easily forget. That's one thing I hate about myself, I guess. I can forgive, but I find it difficult to forget. At this point in time. I know exactly where my life is going, but still I don't. lol :p

I didn't do anything fancy on my 24th life-sarry. And I thought it will just be an ordinary day for me but something or someone rather made it amazing. I think I don't need  to give away any clue for you know for a fact who that person is. My Jr. Yes, the love of my existence. He picked me up from the salon because I was so sad that my make over was post-poned. And my eyes widened because I saw this red roses on the passenger seat. Yes, he gave me flowers. I can't really explain how a bouquet of flowers can make me happy but I'm sure my fellow ladies can understand how I felt and a Tiramisu Meltdown cake top it all off. I was really surprised since Jr's not the type of guy who would do something like that. (Before?? But he's beginning to be the hopeless romantic type so I'm getting used to it! He'll kill me if he reads this. Waha!) I felt like a princess! lol.
Another thing that amazed me was the number of people who flooded my Facebook wall and the numerous text messages that I received. The thought of it is making my heart burst into so much happiness. And I indeed felt that I am so, so loved! :)

I was so inspired, I posted this on my LookBook account. This was again taken by Meek, a good friend of mine.
I am wearing a peach H&M semi pleated cocktail dress with a satin detail and a see through effect. I paired it with my favorite nude leather lace ups platform wooden heels and my ever reliable Viviene Westwood leopard print fabric bag in old rose. To complete the look, I borrowed Mum's pink pearl necklace with an amazing pendant.

The lovely roses that I got. They were very nice to look at. And I can't help but feel kilig every time I think about it. lol. :p  

The Tiramisu Meltdown is one of favorite cake. And it was awesome. Yum-O! :p

I would just like to take this chance to thank all the people who remembered my special day. Who find ways to be able to wish me happiness. Who send me love and kisses. I couldn't be any happier. If
I could just hug each and everyone you. I would. Thank of you.Thank you. Thank you.

I love you all! :)

More to come!

Love lots,
