Beautiful Perfect III



Still from Lulu's, I fell in love with these earth-tone platforms, wedges, and clogs.
 Quite in doubt if I can confidently and comfortably sashay these pairs.
Wish to own them.

Defining a Woman

There are so many ways to describe a woman. 
However, I could not think of anything else right now but to delineate her thru the dresses from Lulu's:

sweet & simple
passionate & romantic
determined & dependable
caring & loving
confident
modest & reserved
kind & polite
smart & suave
organized & meticulous
fashionably effortless

What other words you can describe to - us -  women?

It's the SHOE that Counts

I must admit, I indulge myself in shoes. 
Shoes, generally refers to any types of footwear may it be pump, flat, mule, espadrille...
and the list continues. 
My fetish with shoes somehow revolve around
wedges and flats and sometimes kitten-heeled pumps. 
I go for really 'beautiful perfect',comfy and yet rightly-priced pairs.
For this post, I am showcasing my pretty, according to my judgment, shoes,
 they're quite not-so-new (don't want to call them old),
and have been worn several times with utmost care.

pale pink patent leather round-toe flats with faux jewel stones from Leaveland

white patent leather pointed flat sling-back from Leaveland

Jeepman coral patent leather with plastic buckle bow rubber flats
bought at Metro Expo Sale in Singapore

eggplant patent leather round-toe flats with tiger-print and faux gold chain detail from Janeo


olive heeled mary jane from Celine
zebra-print with bow ballerina flats from a Chinese shoe shop

heeled cobalt step-in with faux gold detail from Metro Gaisano

berry 'Cyprus' Crocs platforms bought in Singapore by my dear sister


And when I travel, I always make sure that I bag home a new pair of shoes.
It has been a habit, deeply rooted into my senses. 
And when my sister travels the globe, of course,
a new pair of good shoes for the baby sister is number one on her shopping list.
Thanks, ditse!
Are you a SHOE-lover?

What/Where I Ate - Casa Verde

For the first time with my family, we dined at Casa Verde at The Walk.
Ordered my favorite recipes...awesome dinner.  


Brian's Baby-back Ribs!!!


SHRiMP-IN-A-BARBIE
Appreciate their rendition of shrimp-on-sticks, but not that palatable according to my taste

the ceiling

Buffalo Wings

My overall rating of the restaurant is 10
The food is great, the place is great despite of the minutes we have to waste just to wait for our turn to experience a sumptuous meal at Casa Verde.

I believe this is a Cebuano's pride.
It's the one place you have to go once you come here in Cebu City.

Casa Verde is located in The Terraces at Ayala, The Walk at Asia Town IT Park and at Ranudo Extension, Ramos St. near Velez Hospital.

Visit here for more of CASA VERDE.

Have you eaten at Casa Verde?

The Long Weekend That Was - Part Four

September 12, 2010
After driving our dad to the domestic airport, we traverse the roads of Mactan island -wanderlessly.  Until we passed by tall condo-looking buildings...oops...it was 'actually' IMPERIAL PALACE.  
So we went for a quick ocular check of the hotel.  
It was indeed a pretty clean, cool resort to unwind.
