This is what I come home to every night..
Kikayness in the house now presents… Sher!!!
I have blogged about my friend Sher, who lives with Jeff and their adorable daughter in Amsterdam, when they visited Manila HERE.
One thing I love about Amsterdam is that they have four seasons. Meaning, you’ll have clothes for the four seasons too. Ang sarap magdamit and pumorma! Sher is one of my fashionable friends duon sa Amsterdam. She’s super pretty and she always dresses so nicely without effort. The last time I visited my dad, it was autumn going to winter. I was with Sher and our friends and I enjoyed looking on how they dress. Siyempre, type na type ko pagnakacoat sila or scarves or dresses with tights or high boots. Nakakaaliw talaga because you cannot see those pormas here. Malamang, tropical country kasi ang Manila noh! Teehee!
Anyways, I asked this pretty mommy if she can send me pictures of some of her outfits. It’s autumn nearing winter na ang season nila there. Here they are:
I’m envious of Sher because ang sexy niya pa rin even though she has a baby already. She always tells me that you just have to know your body and know what to hide and what to show. Korek diba?!
Sher like most of us, loves to shop. As in. We were in Printemps Mall (64 Blvd Haussman) in Paris and aba, namakyaw ang lola niyo! It was so funny because we were there only for the weekend and we were rushing already to catch the bus back to Amsterdam pero we had to go to Printemps pa talaga! Imelda Marcos shops daw here kasi kaya we really HAD to check it out! So sige, sukat dito, sukat dun! Rush! Rush! If you could have just seen us (well more on talaga si Sher), we looked so funny!
Anyways, Sher also loves to shop here in Manila because there are more clothes that fit her better compared in Europe. She likes sales and (tada!) H&M. However, since mommy na nga siya, she became a little more practical when it comes to shopping. She advices us to mix our old clothes with new items and with accessories to have a whole new different look.
(Ken, may I borrow?) “Fashionista ka na, nakatipid ka pa!”
Thanks so much for sharing these mare! Let’s do Jadie naman! Hahaha! Love love!
Kikayness in the house wouldn’t be authentic if I don’t feature DC.
I have been begging DC for her fashion pictures for this blog since I started Kikayness In The House. I have known here since our college days and you guys should see her everyday! She’s like a walking fashion Barbie doll =)
Thankfully after a lot of follow ups (which are sulit talaga, i swear), she emailed me these fabulous pictures of her.
So girls, am I right or am I right? =) fashionable talaga my friend DC.
Now if I could just
force convince DC and her sister to put up a fashion blog teehee!
Thanks so much for agreeing and taking time to take pictures of you! Can I feature you again? hahaha! mwahness!
Senti moment saglit =D
I can say that I have experienced everything before I got married –> I had experienced the joy of loving and being loved at the same time. I had loved someone too much passing the border of being in an unhealthy relationship. I had my heart broken repeatedly by one person. I have loved two person at the same time. Hinabol na din ako (ng aso.. joke). Nagpahabol na din ako. Nagstalk na din ako ng pogi. Long term relationships. Three day relationship. I have experienced it all.
In a different note, I gained true friends through these years. I also lost friends I once cherished. I have been humbled by consequences. I achieved the then unachievable. I stood up in what I believed in and was swayed in one way or another. I got broke
Now that I am stable already, I want to share these words of wisdom to you. I have forgotten where I got this but being borderline emo before this explained everything that I went through.

I’ve learned that it’s not what you have in your life, but who you have in your life that counts.

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t compare yourself to the best others can do, but to the best you can do.

I’ve learned that my best friends and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.
I’ve learned that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down will be the ones to help you get back up.
I’ve learned that sometimes when I’m angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.

I’ve learned that just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.
I’ve learned that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had and what you’ve learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.
I’ve learned that no matter how good a friend someone is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I’ve learned that sometimes when my friends fight, I’m forced to choose sides even when I don’t want to.

I told hubby that I needed to buy black shoes because wala na akong masuot na shoes.
GIRLIE: Di nga Ati?!
Anyways, since our car was coding yesterday, we cannot go to Makati to shop for shoes. We went to Filinvest Mall in Alabang instead. Coincidentally, the Payless store (the one from US) just opened in that mall around two months ago. The timing was just right! We braved the traffic to Alabang from Makati and arrived at the Filinvest Mall after an hour. Payless Shoe Store is located near Shopwise inside the mall. I apologize for the crappy pictures. They don’t allow picture taking inside kasi. Company policy daw so the sneaky sneaky me had to play hide and seek with the guard just to take pictures inside the store.
mmmm… I have a lot of things i wanted to buy pa sana eh but Rain and I are planning to go to 168 Mall sometime this month so dun na lang magshop ng bonggang bongga!!
For those who have been living in a cave these past few months, Pilipinas Win na Win replaced Wowowee as a noontime show in ABS-CBN. The hosts were Pokwang, Valerie, Mariel plus Kris Aquino and Robin Padilla.
Robin and Mariel has long left the show leaving Pokwang, Valerie and Kris Aquino. I have watched the pilot show (when the hosts were still complete) and it was a disaster. Kris Aquino hogged all the spotlight (as usual) and the dating talkative Mariel and Pokwang wasn’t able to host that well because
Kris kept on cutting them off nasasapawan sila ni Kris. I stopped watching the show after that. And during my chismisan session with various friends, Pilipinas Win na Win would always come up in our conversation. Sadly, it looked like it wasn’t rating very well. ABS-CBN did something about it and moved Showtime (which i think was rating well) to the 12noon slot and bumped Win na Win to a later time. Weird no?
I wasn’t surprised this happen. I actually EXPECTED it to happen. Don’t get me wrong. Kris Aquino can darn well host. But she can’t share a stage with other hosts. She’s best if you put her in a game show na siya lang ang nagsasalita or in another show where she interviews someone. In short, she must host in a show alone, or with Boy Abunda who can tirelessly put up with her.
Now, I read an article that Kris Aquino was asked to leave the program. She will be replaced daw with four
old singers. Great move by the station. Wowowee was rating very well before and if only Willie Revillame didn’t act like a prima donna and had that tantrum, they’d still be on air. Almost everyone I know didn’t like Win na Win. Primarily because of Kris Aquino and how she tries hard to be maka-masa. Hopefully, her replacements will do better this time or else they have to junk the show and invent something a lot lot better. Tingnan niyo ang Eat Bulaga sa kabilang channel. Steady na steady lang. Never na yanig =) In fairness, kapamilya ako ha? =)
Our Saturday itinerary was to tour Guimaras. Armed with just a map, we went to the harbor to board a boat to take us to the island. The fare was 13pesos per person and the boat ride took 15-20 minutes. When we got to the island, dinumog kami ng mga tao. They all wanted us to rent a tricycle or a multi-cab from them. We went first to the tourism booth and inquired. They gave us specific places that we can go to and assured us that the rate these people were giving us was the standard rate.
We rented a multi-cab for Php 1,500 for the whole day. The driver served as our tour guide also.
