Manny Pacquiao

boxing

I bet you most Filipinos (who usually work weekends) requested a day off today,why not,today is Pacquiao’s big fight against Bradley (I’m talking about boxing).I am not a big fan of boxing,I seriously don’t understand why people cheer for two people hitting each other,but Boyfriend is (I guess it’s a guy thing) and since I proclaimed myself as no.1 wife,I have to be there with him on this big “guy thing” event.

And to show my support I made my very own boba Thai milk tea,ingredients and instructions here,not only that, I also made my version of halayang ube,ingredients and instructions here.

P.S.Pacquiao won.

Finding The Right Shirt

 

The first step to finding the right shirt is to “ACCEPT” our  SHAPE easy right???.I might look skinny but my abdomen is actually flabby (fact after 3 kids),now with that in mind,when I choose a shirt I make sure that (here’s the second step) it’s not hugging my body tightly,I know I fit on size “S” but it would be too tight and will show my (unwanted) bulges,so I choose a size or 2 bigger than my usual size (I’m wearing “M” on this post),this little trick creates an illusion that I have flat abs (haha).

Now let’s talk about this very simple lunch date outfit,I know that,that black shirt is very basic,so to add drama I wore my leopard print shoes and this golden brown pants with gold detail on the sides,and for my accessories I chose to be minimalist with a colorful friendship bracelet (to remind me that it’s still spring) and a small brown watch to match the touch of browns in my shoes and pants.

Have fun finding the right shirt guys,enjoy.

 
I love how the gold detail on both sides of this pants added a little drama on this very simple outfit (told ya I have flabby abs).

Duchess Of Cambridge’s Style

The Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge Tour Australia And New Zealand - Day 1

Elegant,modest and classy,three adjectives I could think of to describe the Duchess’ style,whether she’s being dictated on what to wear or not (I know you will kill me for this) but I was never a fan of  her style (please let me explain),I feel sad and suffocated that she can’t wear distressed jeans,sheer tops,eclectic pumps or sexy strappy sandals,I feel very restricted and restrained too that  she will be judged by the world the moment she will wear a leather mini skirt (Oh Lord thanks for my freedom).

But those are the reasons why she’s a royalty and I’m not,that she’s famous and I’m not,that her son’s stroller cost $2350 and my kids’ were under 200 bucks,that she travels around the world on a private plane and I can’t even afford  a business class ticket to Seoul.

Please don’t get me wrong,because although I’m not a big fan of her (or the Queen’s) style preferences,I admire how prim and proper she carries her self and her crown.I guess what I’m really trying to say is to embrace who we are and be thankful for what we have (I can never be a princess,or maybe I can,but I will be princess Merida),because she might be a royalty and owns a thousand fold of what I have (materially speaking),but there’s a lot of things I have that she as a princess cannot have,and one of them is my freedom to take a “duck face” selfie of myself anytime anywhere (but princesses have better things to do than take selfies right??? what am I thinking???),well I’m just saying…..okay I know,I should stop.

Happy Tuesday everyone.

Mom Was A Genie For A Day

Last week our little girl turned 5 (please wipe my tears,I’m getting older),and for the longest time she’s been too excited to wear her Halloween costume again,she wanted a “princess tea party” for her birthday,and as a mom (who’s known for being stingy,the idea of recycling her costume sounded really good to me),who am I to ignore that little wish, today on this post let me share our precious bonding moment before her big princess event (the older girls were in school,I have to explain my self right???).

Happy Monday everyone.

 

 
 And oh,don’t miss that little (huge) B detail on our fridge…I love my name so much.
 
 No frosting on our cupcakes,we used pink chocolate melts and a store-bought cupcake topper to make these cupcakes look princess worthy.
 
This is my favorite,I wonder what a 5 year old is thinking when she looks at her mom like that.
 
Here’s our little one’s precious princess moment:)

My Thai

     Baz Luhrmann said “don’t read beauty magazines,it will only make you feel ugly”,although that isn’t always true,food magazines  however always make me HUNGRY,I hope you’re not too hungry right now because today I’m sharing some of the food photos I took on our last Thai restaurant indulgence.

Have fun drooling guys,if you ever decide to eat Thai soon here’s what I recommend 1.Their water 2.vegetable salad with Thai satay sauce 3.sea food tom yum 4.vegetable fried rice.

Good luck,and ooh!!! don’t forget their Thai iced tea,,,mmmm yummy,but it’s lent…let’s eat in moderation.

P.S. Watch Baz Luhrmann’s “everybody’s free”…I loved him the first time I heard him,and I promise you will too:).

P.P.S. Although he (Baz) is not the actual voice on the recording,the song “everybody is free” is credited to him and the vocals were of Lee Perry’s.

 I didn’t want to waste this photo,that’s why this is here,otherwise I don’t really recommend their egg roll.
 Beef with basil,you know how “basil” has that reputation of making everything it touches “magical”,but no I can’t have this yet,maybe after lent,but the aroma and the gang told me it’s 5/5.
 Vegetable fried rice like no other,their rice was glistening (hehe can’t find another adjective) but it’s 5/5 you guys:)
There is something about their water,the best tasting water ever,,,you got to try this.
This place is called Sala Thai they’re located at 432 N. Litchfield Rd #304,Goodyear,AZ
The only entrée I can have this Lent,their seafood TOM YUM 5/5.
I attempted several times (past Thai restaurant visits) to get to dessert but have always failed (too full to have sweets),that’s why on this occasion,I made sure I ordered the dessert first,but was disappointed,it wasn’t as good as I’ve expected,but it deserves a second chance,I’m definitely going to try this again.
