white on white on my Dad's birthday

Hello fellow bloggers! I just couldn't wait to share this white on white outfit with everyone. The weather has been extremely hot and steamy and this white crochet tank top and white shorts was the perfect answer to this weather. The net effect of the crochet let the cool air in while keeping me dry from sweat, staying fresh as the heat rises, what more can I ask for right?  

This is my DAD. my look-a-like minus the tassel earrings and hair. 

It's his 65th Birthday and I wanted to look nice without having to get all dressed up. The delicate design of my tank top is just so dainty and feminine while the loose trouser style of my shorts  gives it a more tailored look cinched with a vintage leather belt that my uncle once owned.  Casual and dressy at the same time. bring on the guest, and a change of shoes, I'm ready to party. teeheehee. Well a small dinner party for my Dad's 65th Birthday.

I accessorized my outfit with a few of my favorite pieces like my DIY tassel earrings, my DIY zipper bracelets and DIY friendship bracelet. Included in my stack of bracelets are my ID and charm bracelets.

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read. Please leave a comment, I would most appreciate it and absolutely definitely reply.

Hoping you all a wonderful day. .

My excuses for being MIA....

Photo diary of my past few weeks, reason for my being missing in action.

Reason 1:
On the Job Training

This 1st photo is of my friend and myself, we both trained (On the Job Training) as housekeepers at a local motel and while taking a break we took pictures in the laundry room. Back story is that we studied a short course under TESDA to receive our National Certificate Housekeeping Training Certificate.

Reason 2: 
Tassel Earrings

As I have previously posted out tassel earrings, here are more.... I'm obsessed! I can't seem to stop making them. Thinking of putting them up for sale but I love them all and I can't seem to part with them. teeheehee.

Reason 3:
Marcos' Grande Reunion

We attended a family reunion. Erick's relatives are apparently in the same lineage as the Marcos' as in Former President of the Philippines, Ferdinand Marcos. 

Reason 4:
Erick's 3 days Birthday Celebration

Day 1, dinner gathering on the night before his birthday with his co-workers. 

Day 2, on Erick's actual birthday day, we went swimming with a couple of his buddies, Cute and Louie, a bunch of great guys. 

That's me on the right, zip lining with my friend's wife, Koni.  We actually just met that same day and really wanted to try zip lining and so we did. What a ride it was. 

 Here is the birthday boy, my love, Erick.

 Day 3, Erick took my family out to lunch at Fotune, a local chinese Hong Kong style restaurant.


The food was indeed delicious.

Day 4, pictures still to come.

Reason 5:
small street food business. 

Yes, yes, we decided to to start back up a barbeque business. Our house help has some mad cooking, grilling skills and thus it was inevitable that we start a foodie business. 

our menu special is this barbeque on sticks. we also serve a variety of food that is skewered on sticks and barbecued over a grill. 

May has been very whirlwind busy for me but I must admit, it's been most fun and worth while. 

I hope everyone is having just as good of May that I am having.

...hope this has been and fun read, thanks for taking the time. much love to all!

Prayers really are answered


...and thankfully so. I was starting to wonder when  April shower would come... It rained, barely, maybe 4 times in the last month that only made the heat more unbearable in our part of the world. Today though, the 1st of May, thank GOD, it rained just enough to cool the weather off. 

I posted a picture on Instagram with a similar photo below with a caption "saying a little prayer before going to sleep" with no particular request in mind. But since rain has been very rare and the heat a constant problem this past month, I feel a connection of the post to the rain that poured out today. ;D God works in msyterious ways right and so why not right cause its been said that if you ask you shall receive 

and  I think that it is true. ;D

And so I'm sure you know what else they say after a rain....

indeed... i'm feeling a beautiful May is here. 

thanks for stopping by. 

To a brighter and beautiful future for everyone. May all your prayers be answered.
