Women Can't Have Enough…

I finish the title phrase by saying shoes and shopping! I'm sure the rest of the women couldn't agree more should I say. Some women would add up clothes, bags, make-up in the long list of can't-have-enoughs. But I prefer shoes more, apart from home and kitchen furnishings and kid's stuff.

Last night, I took the opportunity to go "malling" in Abreeza while the hubby have something important meetings to attend nearby. And since I want to spend for myself muna because  it's my birthday naman, I took off finding a pair of ballet shoes that I've been wanting to buy. Ako naman talaga si Ballet/Flat shoe girl. Since I become a mom, this is my go-to shoe whether for causal or office attire. It's just comfortable and I can move with ease.

Aldo has an ongoing sale on selected shoes and accessories.
I got mine at Php800.00 (Regular priced at Php 1,595.00).

Payless also has an on going sale: Buy 2 (regular priced item) and get
Php500.00 off on the total amount.
(with a minimum purchase of Php1,000.00)

I love my haul from Aldo. I'm looking for a black shoe that would not look too casual when I use it for office. I was already eyeing this about 2 weeks na. I like it because it's the jelly type good for rainy days. I won't worry that much when it'll be soak in water because it won't destroy the texture of the shoe that much. Easy to clean too. It's pointy toe design makes it more formal even if it's not heeled. Not to mention the comfort it brings to my feet!

The second (and third) find I scored are these casual flats from Payless. From the original price at Php695.00, I got this two items for only Php890.00.

I'm suppose to buy the red one but I love the redness more of Celine and the effect of the color on my feet. That is about Php899.00. I was thinking of buying it, but again guilt sinks in. Too much! Maghunos dili naman. If it's meant for me, I definitely will have it in the right time. 

So that's my shoe shopping spree! I hope you like my new purchases as much as I do.

Feeling Happy and Grateful @ 36!

Birthdays for me now at this stage of my life isn't anymore of grandiose feast on the table, spending bucks to have a party and receiving material things. I mean who doesn't want to be around with loved ones celebrating the special day in one's life and receiving gifts. For me, less is already enough for me. Maybe it goes already with the maturity and priorities you have for your life as we age. Those I mentioned are already a bonus. Simple celebration is enough for me by celebrating thanksgiving for the gift of life and good health God has given me, being around with my loved ones knowing that they are okay and happy, having a job, spending sometimes for my wants and being able to afford the basic needs for myself and my loved ones, spending quality time with them and grateful of God's abundant blessings. Of course, during the birthdate, I just want to have a simple dinner with my family for a celebration. And so that's what I did…

We dined at Grand Emerald Seafood Garden at the back of Victoria Plaza Compound. There are several restaurants in the vicinity and one of the famous Chinese restaurants found there is the Afhat Seafood Plaza. There are actually 3 of them inside the compound. However, I chose this time Emerald because I love and missed their complimentary peanuts. Very comforting, addicting and delicious! What I love is it is for FREE and refillable. In our case, we requested. And since we used their VIP room which can accommodate up to 14 persons for a consumable rate or minimum order of Php3,500.00, the waiters serving us would just check on our table and give us when they see we already emptied our peanuts without asking from them anymore, hehehe… Maybe they would just assume we will ask more of it anyway. Very good service! And of course good food! I love their Fish Fillet with Tausi sauce. I really enjoyed my dining experience and birthday celebration as a whole.

I don't know though if their flyer special offer is still valid up to now
as this photo was published in their page 2014 of July.

Torn Feelings

God has been extra good to me and my family this year. I am beyond elated more than words can say. It's more of grateful and overjoyed on the things that's been happening to our family. God has been a good provider ever since we start our family. Indeed it's true that patience, faith and trust will find it's way to God's promise for us. My belief now is God directs our path ahead. Even if we don't understand why this happens in our life, we have to accept and follow His will for us. Most of the time, I am just surprised of God's goodness because He blesses us things that we didn't pray and expect. And now I understand why certain things just don't happen because God gives us the things He knows the best for us.

Why I am sharing this because I think God is so amazing, so generous and so loving. He is working things according to my desire and prayers. Lately, He is answering my little requests but there's only one thing left unanswered. It's gonna be a life changing thing if it's against my will. But I'm still hoping that God will consider my reason which I think is valid. It is actually a blessing that I'd rather wish it to other people who needs it more. I know, shame on me to turn down a blessing from God but I think I have enough for the moment and I see other people needs it more than I do. At this point, it's payback time. People have been good to me and my family. I think it's our time to share our blessings to those who needs it the most. It's actually a very nice feeling more than the bliss of receiving. Of course, it's nice also to receive gifts from other people and of God. But you know, the satisfaction, fulfillment and achievement of sharing surpasses everything.

It's my birth month and I still wish from God that my heart's desires are enough for a birthday present: good health for me and my loved ones, comfortable way of living, quality time with my loved ones, a stable job, enjoy and have a peaceful life and being able to hurdle life's challenges.

I ask and I'm sure I will receive… #bepositive #Godisgood
