it was supposed to be a lamon trip to ihop with monique and cai but… there were about twenty people on the wait list when we arrived.  so instead of waiting, we headed to donuts instead. i actually haven’t tried any of their doughnuts before, because the line to the counter is always heartbreaking. hahaha! ang haba kaya!

anyhoo, since i have good friends to fall in line with, then i agreed. it took us one hour and thirty minutes just to get… donuts donuts

drinks … monique and cai got frappes while i got the thai tea thing, not a big fan of it though. we also got a bunch of donuts donuts

alcapones … the shop’s bestseller. oh i loved them, they were ozummmm! it was very soft and had white chocolate and almonds on top. it wasn’t too sweet as well and had a simple design, which is perfect in my book. also, they have cutesy plates and adorable orangey spoons!  on the other hand, they also sell… donuts

mugs … for some reason, i horde mugs and tea cups. i got the one with the vespa couple design. it’s pretty and really heavy, just right for chugging taho in the mornings.

will come back with maki someday to, maybe when we chance upon a short line to the doughnuts. hahaha!  more pixxors here.

yun lang.

i’ve had weird embarassing experiences with weddings before but i’m so glad i decided to attend

paw and jacky's wedding

paw’s wedding … which is the most heartwarming event i’ve ever been to yet. i was teary eyed when paw started walking down the aisle. aslo, paw and jacky, her new husband, shared the simplest but cutest kiss i’ve seen.

paw and i have been classmates during college and belonged to a group called the ‘mean girls’. we’re not really mean though, it’s an inside joke. fortunately some of the other members were able to come too…

mean girls … cons was part of the entourage so she had to sit up front but i was able to take pixxors with maya, the loudest and wackiest in the group and ruch, who’s kind of shy most of the time but she’s got that inner spunk.

after the wedding ceremony, we chilled a bit at starbucks because the reception wasn’t until two hours later, which is the very reason i decided to wear…

chucks … hahaha! i picked up a blue violet dress at the mall a week back but after reviewing the wedding and reception schedules, which had a large interval, i decided that i will not let my feet die. bought ribbons though in place of the dirty white shoelaces. took a pixxor with cons’ bouquet, which i was admiring the whole time… thought it was pretty. after a few hours of chugging tea and coffee we were off to…

gloria maris chinese restaurant … there were photobooths and drawing activities and of course food… but i was only able to take a picture of some of the refreshments because we shared a table with some teachers and an elegant chinese couple, and since we were younger we allowed them to get the food first.

they served dish after dish after dish after dish… akala ko wala ng katapusan! hahaha! we had different kinds of meat, fish, seafood, soup, mushroom, and noodles, but the best for me of course was dessert! gloria maris has the best mango sago i’ve ever had!

and since we can’t get too close to the newlyweds since they were so busy, we…

went to the restroom in droves … this is what girls really do inside the restroom, camwhoring. lol. and when all the singing and merriment was over, the mean girls went home, well to cons’ place… hehe.

here’s a shoutout to paw and jacky! thanks for inviting me to your wedding, because of it i realized that love really does exist. i hope you’ll live happily ever after and make supercute babies and make us godmothers, kk? more pixxors here.
