Cheating because the past two weeks have been so crazy. Here’s what went down during my birthday week and the week after that🙂
Said goodbye to my straight hair again ‘coz I’m easily bored like that. To be fair I was last curly back in early 2014! That’s two years of straight hair!
Discovered Ang Bandang Shirley. On this day, too, I learned that we often blow our fears out of proportion. I thought I was gonna have a bad birthday eve, but I was happily proven wrong.
Kailangan pa bang i-memorize ‘yan?🙂
Seriously, a low-key but happy day. Spent quality time with the family, and received heartwarming messages from a lot of friends. ‘Pag tumatanda ka na sumi-simple na gusto mo sa buhay ‘no? I’m 25 – just smack right in between the 20s and 30s. Life is beautiful🙂
Got these goodies from my best friend Rizza, who left them with me back in February when she visited Manila. I was under strict instructions not to open them until my birthday, and I was happy to oblige.
#TeamOrtigas hosted our monthly young adult cell group at this neat place in Greenfields District. I invited Mayel over, and everyone surprised the July celebrants (Me, Sai, Ate Lysh) with cake!

My accountability partner Betsy also gave me a gift that is so apt with my #GetFitAt26 goals. Thanks AP! :*
And proof that I’m serious with that hashtag:

If this is what our environment beat weekly meetings will be like, then yey! Hello healthy food~
July 27: Rappler Talk interview with Education Secretary Leonor Briones.
My only photo during Elize’s despedida. It was a great night of drinks and laughter with former and current officemates, albeit the reason for the dinner is still sad (until now)
July 29: Rappler Talk interview with Gina Lopez
What I don’t have photos of: dinner with Elize and Michael, and photo with Rey when we visited him at the hospital. Again, a night of conversations, long-distance walking, and puns😐 :))
Hands down the highlight of my month! The July celebrants’ birthday “salubong” is becoming a yearly tradition. I love it. Most of my updates that night went to Snapchat, and this day probably deserves a separate (detailed) post. For now, here are some photos from Saturday.
