Mummy Madness

Last saturday was mummy's birthday treat and also S & R's sale woohoo! I made sure to join the Serrano family for this day since it was a pretty big deal for Mummy J to treat us for her birthday.Most probably because, being the ever practical person that she is ( ahem kuripot haha), I would just patiently wait for the day that she splurges a little bit hihi. Also, mummy kept on insisting that I check out this Bamboo shoe rack that would look nice for my condo. 

Anyhow, we went to S & R pretty early but it was pretty crazy already. We had to wait for almost an hour just to get inside. Not to mention the time we spent just falling in line to pay. 
Of course, we had to find some outlet for the boredom that was slowly killing us and making us all hungry - take selfies in the midst of the chaos haha.

EATING TIME.

I love the Serrano family so much <3 My adoptive family in Manila hihi!
Much love,
Nikki

Keep Calm

I've been on MIA mode ever since this term started but I'm glad to share a set of photodiary from yesterday!

Let me share a bit of  story first haha. Yesterday, I randomly texted my mummy Jannel and asked her if she was going to school since I needed her to sign a form for me. She's unofficially my "guardian/mummy" so I asked her to take care of this. So my plan to spend the entire day at the library ironically turned into going to Glorietta again. How did this happen again ughhh?? Simple - Mummy randomly rambling about going shopping that day. 

I'm thankful that we've been seeing each other more this term as compared to last term. Mummy x Mommy OOTD + Interior design adventures more to come please! And I've been a little down since my close friends are graduating really soon and it's odd knowing that they're not going to school anymore.Thank goodness mummy is still studying and I can still bug her whenever.

Naturally, I could hear Sonja's cupcakes seducing me right away when we entered the mall. I just had to order their strawberry basil iced tea! I swear I'm too addicted to iced tea. Moments like this  remind me that I'm really not a structured person. I like being spontaneous and I would gladly fix my sched whenever the situation calls for it, no matter how trivial it seems. Others might operate using a strict set of to-do lists for a day, but I really find it hard to do so. Of course, I  admire people who can comply to a strict schedule. Thinking about it, mummy is really organized while I can be the opposite at times haha. Maybe this is the reason why we get along so well haha.

And I'll stop blabbering now and just go back to the photos. Seeing photos of cupcakes or any food is both torture and a joy for me. I hope that anyone who  reads this would get the former feeling instead of the latter. :))
Kinikilig si myy kay....
Iced tea will be the death of me.
Now that I'm doing my thesis, this would serve as the perfect motivation.
Motto in life hihi 

We also saw a new tea place - Teaberi! We just spent time taking photos instead of ordering haha.

Lastly, we went to TWG to grab some macaroons since mummy told me that she hasn't tried one (that is until yesterday).
Mga tambay ang peg namin while we were sitting near the fountain outside and just eating macaroons and it actually felt nice. I also kept on telling mummy my wish to win the Volkswagen since I entered their competition haha.
Much love,
Nikki

Home Sweet Home


Some photos that I took last week at my hometown during sembreak :)

Perfect place to exercise, meditate, and a lot more activities under the sun
Being hungry all the time when I'm with my parents, the only time that I managed to take photos of food was during our dinner at Small Talk. For soooo many years, my order has always been Our Very Own Spaghetti! This would never change hihi

Last day spent taking photos instead of exercise.

Few more months till I come back again. Back to condo lifestyle and I'm preparing myself for another stressful and exciting term ahead! :)

Much love,

Expert Designer Project - Part1

In my last post, I've said that I am currently on the "expert designer" project with Mommy . In other words,  a room makeover for my condo. I know it's really a late initiative for me to do since I'll be graduating next year but I really want to improve the space for my creative mess.

After my last class for the term last week, I met with Mommy J for our window shopping. I really enjoyed our time together.Even if I was silently suffering and salivating the good items I can't buy just yet! We went to Dimensione in Greenbelt, and SM dept. store. Too bad we weren't able to go to Howards and Heima due to the limited amount of time! 

Sharing some of the items that caught our eyes and would HOPEFULLY be mine soon :)

"Expert Designer"

Sharing some photos taken today with Mommy J while we were at Ayala Triangle for our much awaited term-ender Banapple date! We were supposed to meet on tuesday for the furniture shopping that I wanted to do. But due to conflict in schedule, we had our date today instead after my morning class!   Let me dedicate this post to Jannel Serrano aka Mommy J/ College Mummy! My... if you're reading this, mas cute ung notebooks na nabili ko haha.

Anyhow, this day has been quite disappointing at start for me. For so many times, I have doubted my capabilities and I've been so distracted since I've been thinking of academic stuff even if it's my last day of class for this term. Meeting Mommy J for today is very timely since I am reminded once again of the many reasons why I continue to strive in many things in life. Mommy J has always been my idol since frosh days. I'll never get tired of repeating this because she has been nothing but a positive influence in my life. I've never seen someone work so hard, be responsible, and have outstanding time management skills huhu. Today, I am reminded once again of the things that I should continue to work on and just let the negative vibes  evaporate on its own.

I can only be thankful for having a college mummy that also serves as my amazing photographer for OOTD shots, and also someone who can get my silliness,corny jokes, and sweetness hihi.And now, I have asked her to do another very difficult job- to be my condo's "expert designer" haha. I can't wait to post more on our interior designing adventures! :)

Much love,
Nikki
