Simple Joys

May 25, 2011

I had a perfect day today.

I arrived at Nail Spa to claim the treat I won from Dainty Mom. (Thanks Martine!)

And caught Paola and Martine inhaling macarons. (These were HEAVEN. I have to order)

Celebrity sighting. I’ll treat the one who correctly guesses who this guy is to a milk tea drink. Earlier, his daughter was there in her ballet outfit to attend her dance class in Shang. I pretended to take pics of the macarons to get this shot. (Pistachio, chocolate and red velvet flavors. I really have to order)

Busy mommies deserve nice toes. (Nice legs, Paola!)

Paola and I went to Chatime in Pioneer Center.

The area upstairs is perfect for lounging, studying, and chatting. They have free WiFi too. I had the Chatime Roasted Milk Tea with Pearl. Yummeh.

Sjofn is seriously adorable.

And then it was off to Galerie Anna for an exhibit.

I relish the times when I can be a mother, a friend, a woman and a wife, all in the same day. There are days when it’s all mommymommymommymommymommy.

      Kausapin na ang asawa. :p Pero these times make it really hard for one-income families. Even as a stay-at-home mom before, I was always on the look-out for “racket”.

    How do you even do it? Nail spa, massage, shopping! I vowed to go back to reading a couple of weeks ago and it takes precious sleeping hours off my schedule! I only get to do it when the kids hit the bed.

      Easy. I don’t sleep, diba? :p This comes with a sacrifice. After a full day out, I had to do an all-nighter with The Job. Worked till 6am, fell asleep at 7am, awake by 830am. Basti woke me up pa for a feed.

        But I cannot not sleep. Baby #3 needs me to rest. In fairness, I had my nails done yesterday but by our helper lang who knows how (manicure first cause Gia woke up so pedicure due today, haha, installment!) — syempre nasa bahay pa din! But, good enough ๐Ÿ™‚

      Oo nga! But if the experience is as good as reviews say, I won’t mind splurging for it when I REALLY, REALLY NEED IT.

      Hahaha! No one guessed so with this comment I hereby revoke my “contest”. He appears in many ice-cream commercials with his wife and 2 kids.
