Throwback Thursday / Memory Monday

Few weeks ago my friends and I decided to take our taste buds to the side streets of NY. When talking about street foods in NY what could have been more infamous than the Halal Famous Guys along 6th ave? The Halal guys are famous for their chicken or lamb over rice which I must say really savory and not to mention the $6 price of it. Now, who could really beat that? If you plan to visit NY soon don't forget to drop by to their stall and discover what was the fuss about. 

While we were devouring our whole plate of chicken over rice topped with sour cream, (trust me on this. It's really good!) we got the chance to have our own version of throwback Thursday. Honestly, I can't seem to conjure up if it was really Thursday or Monday but the thing is we did  travel back in time when we were still in Manila (city in Philippines). We had our own fair share of saga- how we cheated death or any that considered close to it. We also share our purse/cellphone-snatching stories when we were students back then. Oh it's ridiculous! It's funny how we can laugh about it now but feared for our lives when we were at that eventful nightmare. Don't get us wrong we love Manila. Actually we miss everything about it. That's why we reminisce a couple of our "only in Manila" shenanigans. We also had the time of our lives there. Most of my notable life stories happened there. Oh how I really miss home. Though I considered NY to be my home, Manila will always be my no. 1. I can't wait to explore not just the city but the entire Philippine archipelago when I get back. I can smell it anytime soon.

I Woke Up Like This

The moment that I laid my eyes upon this sweatshirt I fell in love right away! Besides the fact that statement shirts are a "thing" right now, my other half was the culprit behind this lovely sweater. Thanks to him I got so much compliments when I was strutting down the streets of NYC. Someone even asked me where did I buy it because it simply rocked my whole outfit. I felt some kind of electricity was creeping through my veins when I heard those compliments.  Yiiiieeee!

Since my sweet heart gave this to me, I figured why not make this blog entry wholeheartedly dedicated to him. Also, October is his birth month so might as well my first entry will be for my one and only. (OMG I didn't know that I could be mushy and cheesy like this! Blame it to the so called long distance relationship!) hah!
Though we have exactly 8,491 miles apart stretch, never have I seemingly felt this gigantic geographical distance between us. He never made me feel alone most especially when everything seems to collapse around me. That's how good he is. No. Scratch that. He is actually AWESOME. The unwavering love that he never fails to manifest every single day was way beyond my expectations. To be honest I have no idea how does this thing works, I just took the gamble and let myself emerge to the highs and lows of LDR. Surprisingly, everything is working out just fine and we are nearly close in celebrating our anniversary. Him and I swarmed through the seas and I must admit that we are far from being a pro. But I believe with our continuous efforts we can surmount whatever challenges it may bring us.
I am just so grateful that I have the perfect partner to go through this. He is the sweetest guy that I've known, better than your Snickers chocolate bar or any of that same kind. He always makes me feel like I am the greatest blessing that happened to him (and yes, he is to me). He stays up all night just to hear my continuous list of shenanigans. He is gifted with an enormous amount of sense of humor which makes me look like a totally crazy person whenever we have funny conversations. He taught me how to loosen up with regards to my feelings. Like that it's okay to let your partner know that he is wanted. 
I can go on with my list on how lucky I am to have such a great partner in life but I guess I will reserve the others for myself. Because you might snatch him away from me realizing that this kind of humans are already extinct. haha! Okay, I guess that's waaaaaay too cheesy to say. 

Thanks, my heart because of you I'm always waking up like this - with a smile on my face.

Nude and Black

This was taken few days ago before the breezy weather becomes unbearable without wearing a light sweater. Fall is starting to be visible again which excites me because another new beginning is about to unfold. I mean, who wouldn't want a new chapter and try to start anew, right?
This top has been in my closet for almost 2 years now yet I couldn't find a perfect ensemble that can go with it. Talking about making a statement here. Good thing I have this statement skirt which complimented my top well. I just thought that my snickers made an extra oomph too. But since fall is here I guess I have to find a dark version of this. Let the search for a perfect pair of sneakers begin.
