Ella and I talked about shoes during one of our downtime in our HK Business Trip. How I became a shoe lover especially flats. Ever since we got back we have been ringing each other back and forth regarding the project we are working on but when she rang me up to check out the latest collection of Posh Pocket Shoes, I could not resist but to type in their url on my keyboard.

I am already familiar with the website through the courier Xend and have checked it out before. But this time, I found a style that I really like so a few clicks later I already placed my order for my very first poshie! Since I opted to pay Cash on Delivery, I received this two days later:

Nifty Bag
Expandable Bag
Pointy Leopard + 0.5" from my usual size
Snug Fit

Here is Ella's Instagram post on her first poshie

Posh Pocket Shoes

From their website:  POSHies are chic, compact, yet fashionable flats that women can keep on hand whenever they need a time out from stilettos. POSHies are set to be every girl’s MUST HAVE, and are designed to solve an age- old problem for fashion conscious women. POSHies are not your disposable, average kind of rollable shoes. They have a solid, double-cushioned sole to make your feet extra comfy.

Felt like I was doing thesis again!

Yeap, I had very little sleep last week just to meet the project deadline which I was able to do, praise God! But the weekend was also busy since we had just moved in to our new apartment here in the south. Come Monday, I stepped out of the office early, 6:30 pm that is hahaha (early na ba yun?), to have some me time even just for a couple of hours.

I have been eyeing Sissy's Nail Art & Spa in Molito Alabang since Feb so there I was being ushered to my chair, listening to soothing music and being pampered by two attendants! Sigh... thank you Lord for this sabbath.

I only availed for the regular Manicure and Pedicure for Php 360. Compared to other shops this is cheaper so I am surprised to get a little more than the regular nail cleaning and painting. The service also included a quick foot soak and light massages with generous amount of foot care products. In short, with that price indi tinipid unlike the other spa na sukat na sukat.

It is quite spacious inside so I didn't feel all cramp up with other patrons plus another selling point is its accessibility and parking space. Then again I came in on a Monday evening and from what I heard they are quite busy during Fri to Sun. Btw, some local celebs also frequent the place. So for a pretty new establishment Sissy Nail Art & Spa is quite promising! See you in a few weeks...

On our first official weekend in the new apartment, we had to swing by the nearest grocery store to stock on supplies. So after finishing up our errand for the day we decided to take a break at Domino's Pizza. Hubby and I just ordered the 7" pizza but little did we know they have a promo dubbed as Buy 1 Get 1 Everyday Promo for all sizes and all flavors! so instead of sharing just one pizza, we ended up having 7" pizza each. Hihihi...

Yeap there is no better way to say it but with a song -- 'I like to move it, move it...MOVE IT!

I basically became a nomad after the house I grew up got sold to pay off our family debt due to some bad business venture. Since then I have been moving every couple of years or so and I think it already rubbed off to my husband since this is our 4th lipat after we got married, hahahaha!

Now we headed to the south... Alabang!
From The Fort gilid to Alabang gilid bwahahaha!!!

It was another answered prayer for me... I just thank the Lord for giving us a safe and cozy place to stay near our workplace. Our new apartment is just 15 minutes and 2 blocks (walk) away from our south office. So instead of worrying about the traffic jam, I can now divert that focus and energy on other things.

I know this is part of His plan and I can sense He has an assignment for us in the 'south area'. May you use this home Father to be a place for relationship to be build with fellow believers.

All it had to take is just a little convincing, hubby and I found ourselves at the door of The Balinese Spa. The ambiance is quite inviting for the two of us who need the time off. But he is a bit shy though to take off his clothes *hihihi* so he opted for a foot spa instead while I availed the Signature Full Body Massage. I was glad that the masseurs still ushered us to a couple's room despite availing different treatments.

For a solid good one hour, we enjoyed the kneading of a professional. The Signature Full Body Massage is a combination of Shiatsu and Swedish Massage. It is relaxing without hurting your budget.

I was ecstatic to hear the news that I will be part of the two teams who will go on for an onshore assignment. I quickly thank the Lord for answering yet another of my faith goals this year. It was awesome!

But when the travel dates were confirmed, it dawn on me that I won't be here for my hubby's birthday... a first for both of us after 15 years. Though he was sad when he heard this part of the news, he was still very supportive. So I had to make major bawi with some pre and post birthday celebration.

My last Friday Night before leaving, dinner at YakiMIX Alabang Town Center
Early morning flight NAIA Terminal 2
'Happy Birthday' via Skype
Birthday Giftssssss - Camera Bag, Starbucks Hong Kong Tumbler, Casio Edifice watch and jacket
Tamrac Camera Bag
Lunch at Mann Hann Market Market Taguig

Whew!!! Yung per diem ko napunta na lahat para makabawi lang for missing out on his actual birthday. Joke hahaha! 

Me: "Ayan ha, bawi na ko sau. Kse kung andito lang ako on your actual birthday - isa lang ang gift mo at isa lang yung kain natin sa labas"
Hubby: "Alis ka ulet next year sa mismong birthday ko ha!!!"

But for being such a loving and kind husband, you are definitely worth it... Praise God for your life and may He continue to use you for His glory.

Hi Lovelies!!! I just got back yesterday from my two-week business trip to Hong Kong. Quite an experience I have to say but I truly thank God for this career opportunity. I'll be definitely going back but next time for leisure and I won't be leaving hubby behind anymore. Hahaha!

So for the first of my HK series, I'm featuring Harbor Plaza North Point Hotel located at Quarry Bay Hong Kong. I especially love going home from work to a neatly clean and made up room every night. So thank you very much to the housekeeping I always get a good night sleep.

 Now let us take a peek at the bathroom.


My business associates and I enjoy the breakfast buffet daily before riding the complimentary shuttle bus that takes us to our office.

Must have Meal Stub

There are a lot more food being served kaya lang medyo nahiya naman akong picturan lahat. Basta you get the idea na. The only downside is they have the same menu daily so if you are staying for a while, just get from one station per day so you could have a variety.
