A few days ago, my Mom and niece came home from a two-week vacation in Singapore. This time around, instead of my sister going back home, they were the ones who flew. Every time there’s a chance to have something sent to us through Ate’s friend, she sends them. And of course, being her only little beautiful sister, my even MORE beautiful Ate would always have something for me. But this certain trip, she had too many stuff for me. She kept asking me for “something I need to say to her” a.k.a. the magic word, thank you, whenever we talk on FaceTime or even when she comments on my photos on Instagram. And I wanted to thank her with a blog but she’s been nagging me so I don’t think this will be a surprise anymore. Ha ha! So here are what she got me: 20130517-145143.jpg

    1. Running shoes that I asked because my Nike Lunarfly is already old. Ha ha! No, because the rubber on the sole is gradually detaching. I can still use it though, I’m just too spoiled. Loljk
    2. Sebago Docksides in blue! I’ve been wanting a pair of boat shoes since my Mom bought two, for her and me, from the States last year; but the ones she got me we’re too small for my huge feet. Hello size 9 girls, this is such a problem, right?
      3. This pair of Havaianas technically came from Singapore but was bought here. It is my sister’s old pair that Mama got and that I got from her. Meaning,

inangkin ko yung

    sandals! Ha ha!
      4. Burt’s Bees lip balm which was in my

last blog post.

    5. Candy-colored baking tools. The cute little mixer and a silicon spatula!
    6. Betty Crocker Super moist cake mix!
    7. Kisses Chocolate chips because I’ve been into baking cookies lately. And two packs of chocolate chip muffin mix (the first one I already used) from Betty Crocker as well!
    8. Last but not the least. Two packs of Mrs. Fields cupcake mix. This one’s pretty funny because my Mom, who’s such a pro at packing, decided to just remove the box to save space. But she forgot that the recipe is in the box as well. Ha ha ha!

I can’t find the top she also bought me so it’s not in the picture. So there. Thank you Nenen! I love you so much! Instagram: @Jjaammiiieee

Shopping Ba-haul

I had my hair trimmed today. You really can’t tell the difference. After Mama got her hair roots retouched, we went to North EDSA to buy stuff.

Knowing my mother, she doesn’t really splurge much on pricey clothes. She prefers cheap ones from the tiangge. The only time she buys them is when she’s abroad. I thought we were just going to do the grocery for our Noche Buena because I’ve been bugging her about what we were going to serve. Also because I’ve been wanting to buy the ingredients for a No-Bake Blueberry Cheesecake and Red Velvet Cupcakes. But then when we got inside, she asked me where were we buying clothes. We went to Forever 21 and chose what probably might look good. After fitting my clothes, she went around to look for more. Breana and I entertained ourselves with the accessories and shoes, trying everything we can. I thought of getting a basket so I can gather what I found nice.

Mine, mine, mine, Chichi’s. :)

Finally, I already have a polo jeans. I’ve been meaning to have this since last year whenI saw it from a magazine. Papa has one of these but then he used to be super built so, even if I am already big, it’s even bigger than me. Oo na, Plus Size yan. :P

Later then, Mama appeared and told us to check out at the counter already because we have to go home early. I told her about the accessories and that they’re on sale. She didn’t mind looking at the price and walked to the cashier. It was like heavens opening up and angels were singing to me.

After that, as we we were walking, I saw that The Body Shop’s Lip and Cheek Tint was on sale as well. I lost the tube I got from Ate so I was really happy when I saw that they were 50% off. Mama was like, “Sige na kunin mo na.” I knew right there and then that I wouldn’t make pakipot anymore because I really love the product ever since I first tried it.

For only 395 Php!!

The last thing we bought was Breana’s sandals. She wanted something that looks like the wedges Ate sent from Singapore. We saw this really nice wedges for kids and it fits her feet perfectly well.

I really had fun today! I hope this happens again. I really hope!! Btw we also saw Hello Kitty!! :)

Mama and I being kids with the real kid.
