...birthday weekend

i had a very interesting weekend.. hehe.. it's a combi of expensive food, flat tires and great music.. i'll start my story when i got a call last Friday, Nov. 25 around 3:00 pm here in the office.. the guy on the line said: "Ma'am Gretchen, may padala po sa inyo dito." and with me saying "Saan ba yan?" hehe.

anyway, i got this:

flowers


ooooooohh ang sweet talaga ni pangs. with matching card na "Happy Birthday Pangs!".. feeling beauty queen ako dhel meh flowers hihihi. (inggit officemates kong girls, hehehe) anyway, Pangs and I met halfway in Ayala and we walked and walked and walked until we reached this..

tsukiji


it's a small japanese restau with over-the-top food prices.. hehe.. I know Pangs just wanted me to have a very memorable birthday but I honestly feel it was sooo mahal there. The food was okay, the green tea ice cream exceptional and so was the Tempura..

there was an aquarium at the entrance of the restau, and i couldn't help taking a picture of the orange fishies.. waah, they were so cute..

fishies

cute nohhh? anyway, Pangs had another suprise for me.. waaaaaaaaaah. ang ganda ganda! here it is:

philippe starck

it's a fossil watch designed by Philippe Starck! if you don't know him, he's a modernist designer.. you could see his watches at Avant and his chairs are there as well..basta.. waah, thank you Pangs! I love you! (Jane, pink eh, ehehehe)

nagpaadjust lang kami because of my patpatin wrist sa Glorietta.. after nun uwi na.. the next day, was our wedding preps day again.. we first went to Exclusively His for Pangs' barong..here's a sneak peek

nakapolo shirt pa kasi siya sa loob tsaka meh buntot pa (yung Tag).. pero it fits him really well and malinis ang pagkatahi..

next stop was Recto for our invites.. okay din, we meticulously proof-read the invites and gave the go signal to print the final product.. we'll be able to get our invites this Saturday (yahooo!)

after that, Enterprise naman. Pangs had to go there for some kind of training support pero hindi naman naabutan. pagbalik sa parking, waah flat tire ang naabutan namin. kakatawa kasi yung tool na ginagamit ni Pangs na pagtanggal ng screw sa gulong eh meh extension so he could only do half turns everytime so inis na inis na siya hehe. tinatry ko siyang icalm down (which i think i successfully did) and eventually, napalitan din nya yung tire.

after that uwi na kami (a quick stop sa vulcanizing shop for the flat tire) and i was soo tired i fell right to sleep.

on the day of my birthday, (Sunday) it was just my Dad and I who went to Mass (ate ging, asa thailand, ate chary is nag overnight sa ibang house).. mineet namin si Raymond then we ate sa all-time family favorite Don Henrico's. hehe. wala kaming inoorder dun kungdi Carribean Salad tsaka Oven-Baked spagetti. hihihi. tried and tested. After nun, balik bahay kami kasi 5:00pm pa naman susunduin si Ate Ging sa airport. We watched Grimm Brothers at home (i fell asleep) and after that, off we went to the airport. Pangs got off at Robinson's tas umuwi na siya. Nung dumating na si Ate Ging (kinita din namin si Ate Chary sa meh airport) we all had dinner at Gerry's Grill in Libis. Kita ko si Camille Pratts. kakatawa nga eh. sabi ko keh Ate chary, "Nakita mo si Camille Roxas?" eheheh. Pratts nga pala.

ooh, ate Ging gave me a L'occitane (i forgot the spelling) lotion set (yahoo!) and Ate chary gave me this:

havaianas

yeheyyy, meh pang-Bohol na ako! Balak ko ring bilhan si Pangs para terno kami, hihihi.

Monday na susunod, mineet ko sina Meltuts and Chekay. waaah walang pinag-bago si Mel lolz. Mas meh binago pa si Sistah kasi Long hair na ang lola mo. ayun. sa susunod ko na pakita pics, di ko pa nadodownload from my camera. anyway, chika-chika, burgoo tapos kape. After nun punta naman kami ni Pangs sa Sentimental Groove.. for our long-awaited listening session which turned out to be great. Good thing magaling talaga yung banda.. hay.. sabi ni Pangs nahiya daw siya dhel mega palakpak ako nung kumanta yung singer naming si Aubrey. hihihi. galing nya kasi tlaga eh. She sang "Nearness of You" and "Lovely Day" galing! tapos our Boy singer also did a great job. He can sing our Barry White songs with ease. Yehey! Listening Session, check!

SOS, Aubrey and TJ
SOS with our singers, Aubrey and TJ
