2011 HAB festival

another great  HAB experience.

this year to make it different, i planned to attend the hot air balloon festival early in the morning on a weekday to  avoid crowd and take advantage great morning weather. still, despite leaving  Manila at around 4 i was not able to make it on time. balloons were already up  as i was entering the clarkfield main gate.  i  felt like a child enjoying the full view of the colorful balloons flying on air.

so here’s sharing some colorful photos, my first post for 2011 haha ;p


i need to rush to HAB field ;p

it felt so good capping off  my awful workweek  with lively colors and pleasant weather. oh so lovely day it was.

It’s cold outside, it’s Christmas time!

Cheers! it’s Christmas all over the world people so let me extend my warmest greetings to all of you. I must admit that I’m such a lousy blogger this year, updates has been erratic mainly because i’m too busy being lazy. i’ll make it up next year promise 😉

what can i say? 2010 is a wonderful, wonderful year! Happy Christmas 😉

Gone for Deer Hunting in Camarines Sur

one  of my longest provincial vacation was spent  in two of bicol’s promising provinces: camarines sur and albay.  i planned my trip into these provinces mainly because i wanted to see the majestic mt. mayon and to try wakeboarding . but more than  mt. mayon and water sports, i was surprised of what i had found out about these places, matters that i will be sharing with you in my bicol trip series.

here’s sharing my first installment :

Waiting for Mt. Mayon to show up

i’m lazing around bicolandia for almost a week and loving it 😉  it’s not a so little time so much to see and do drama since weather is gloomy since  we landed. coffee at la mia tazza in embarcadero  comforts me while waiting for trip back to manila. lounging on a cozy chair with mythology book on one hand and hot cappuccino on the other, plus a coastal view of legazpi port wow!  i’m having a great weekend in this side  about 538 kilometers south of manila. pure bliss!

Happy {weekend}

happy weekend 😉 what are you all up this weekend? i hope you have a wonderful one. today i went out from bed late. i DREAM of going to someplace full of pine trees and i long for freezing temperature sans rain shower.  i would just laze around, prolly reading  a good book. then  i’ll go to some rustic restaurant  to enjoy  some delicious food. pamper myself with traditional filipino hilot.  can’t get any better than that.

my REAL weekend would consists of cleaning, cooking, movie date, drop by at a cosmetic fair, some retail shopping too 😉 and then visit my former flat neighbors to bid them good luck on their 2nd sunday bar exam.

whatever is in store for you today have a great day ahead!

Heima’s happy accent chairs

aside from work, i am engrossed on reading home magazines, and during weekends, i loiter to different home accessories and  furniture hubs all the way from greenbelt to quiapo ilalim. of course dapitan arcade included. last week i went to lri design in makati, then i tagged my mom to tiendesitas thereafter. hoping that she’ll buy the the dining table i have been meaning to have. scouting items to bring in to my abode is something that i really need to do especially when i am on a budget. for the past months, i am very eager to renovate and design my humble abode, all i do is to scout, scout, and scout where on earth will i find the perfect item to match my tiny condo. taking into account my home theme: shabby chic. my aim is to achieve a relaxing and casual atmosphere making use of soft touch, light and neutral colors.

one of the stores inside LRI building is a strikingly unconventional furniture shop called heima. it has a collection of colorful accent chairs, wall art, and the cutest home accessories. the entire shop evokes happiness. i would love to transport each and every item from their store to my house, but that is jut a wish as of the moment 😉 beautiful items sold in this store are also handsomely priced.

so here take a look at what heima has to offer.

lovely accent chair

if the accent chairs above are too pricey for one’s budget, perhaps consider buying these tiny chairs?
