Feel Good Day
My problem when attending formal occasions, especially wedding, is what I’ll wear.
I’m a jeans and t-shirt girl. I don’t wear heels (and I mean those formal, fancy high heels) and make-up (just cheek tint). You can count how many formal occasions I’ve attended on your hands including proms LOL!
For the past weeks, Mike and I were on a quest to buy a dress and comfortable heels. Fortunately, I was able to borrow heels and bought a dress the day before. I also managed to book a hair and make-up artist, Chichi Sotomil. She did a great job, at least by how my friends reacted when I posted this photo on my wall. It’s great that we found a great HMUA here at the south.
The ceremony was held at Santuario de San Jose. Mike did the second reading and an impromptu Prayer for the Faithful reader (the priest suddenly called him). Reception was at Oasis Manila and received an early bird “item” 😀
Anyow, the heels didn’t worked for me. 🙁 Even if I put those gel thingy on the sole, my feet just couldn’t bear it. I ended up wearing the boots. Good thing I brought them it.
Paul and Joy, our previous client, were also there and shared the table with them. I was also happy that Nina (K by Cunanan) was also there. We’ve had 2 wedding clients where she handled their catering. It was good to see her. Darlene, Mike’s classmate, event’s host and an ex-coordinator was introduced to me. Mike wanted to coordinate our wedding before but she already had a client that time.
Then they have this mini game where guests are encouraged to write wishing message for the couple. I was so surprised when mine won hahahaha!
Dear Johanna and JM,
Congrats and best wishes to both of you. Just a piece of advice. Maglagay ng dishwashing liquid sa plato bago maghugas. Maglagay ng gas sa kotse bago mag drive. Mag “I love you” bago matulog at mag “I love you” pag gising. I hope it makes sense but I hope this made you smile 🙂 CHEERS!
After the wedding, we went to Magnum Opus, a coffee shop that’s near our village. We’ve been meaning to go to that place but we usually return from our errands quite late and the place is already close.
We were greeted by the owner Jonathan. He’s very accomodating and very pleasant. Assisted us on what we can try since it’s our first time. I tried Belgian Heartbreaker. It’s a moccha drink that uses Belgian chocolate and Mike their Classic Latte. Gads, it was good. Not your typical famous coffee shop drink.
Mike and I were bothered on how familiar Jonathan is. So after we paid our bill, we asked him and it turns out that he used to be my player! I felt proud of him. Wow. We both agreed that we will be a regular there and that we need to talk to him on how he can improve the place.
I really felt good that day. I pulled off a semi-formal look (accidentally matched a formal dress and my fave boots), the make-up, won a game, met old client, co-suppliers, met a player, tasted a new coffee…
It was good.
It was really, really good.
