My little princess and her classmates during ToonTown sem-starter in school. It was initially planned as a sem-ender but because of bad weather, the event was moved after the sem break. They were all so cute!

I got very sentimental with this on the first day of the little girl’s class..

Thank you, ISYC for such a sweet note.

I am a sucker for small, yet meaningful gesture :p

A Big Day

Leave a comment

Okay, I am back tracking my posts and I wonder if I posted Sachi’s first day in preschool. To my surprise, I didn’t! Di ko mahanap eh.ย Tsk, so here I am back tracking on an important milestone in the little girl’s life.

Our first day, shown in pictures:

Sachi, at first was very shy. That was expected though. She spent around 30 mins in one corner observing everyone, not bulging into any invitation of classmates and teachers to join the art activities. After what seemed like forever, Trey tugged her and that’s all she needed. Extra time and a special tug. She worked on her name painting, listened to teacher and participated. Good job for a first day!

Gets me to thinking how my first days were in preschool. All I remember (and oftentimes reminded by the elders), I am the kid who cries on the floor and bawls her heart out. In short, naglulupasay. Tsk. So yeah, compared to her mommy, Sachi did way better on her first day ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚


I did have a draft pala, dated June 14, 2012 but it was not published. Just a little note for myself ๐Ÿ™‚

Grandparents’ Day

Leave a comment

I’ve said it many times, one of the reasons why I am loving by daugther’s school is their thoughtfulness. They hold programs, get togethers and assessments almost bi-weekly. We had the mother-daughter crafts day, father and child carnival day, family day olympics, and recently, in celebration of Grandparents’ day, all the students had this big presentation at Miriam.

Well, I was excited because 1) Miriam is my alma matter. I grew up in Miriam. Half of my life was spent there and going back on that same stage where I used to perform as a kid is… I can’t really explain. 2) Sachi’s first presentation on stage 3) It’s for our loving grandparents.

Since mother was just in Manila for my birthday, only Papa was able to grace the event. All other grandparents’ are out of the country. (I told mother so many times not to go on my birthday and just graced the event, eh mas pinili nya talaga pumunta on that day. okay. I feel the love. Pero next time ma, panoorin mo nlng apo mo hehe. Ako di mo mapapasayaw, un apo mo nlng :p)

The stage parents that we are… we were there during practice!

To all our grandparents, Papa & Mama, Tatay, ย Nanay and Lola Leda, and another Tatay & Nanay, Grandma Rosie, Grandma Carmen… this one is for you! Sachi did great! ๐Ÿ™‚


Fly high, POSH NAILS!

POSH NAILS is flying high!

Posh Nails celebrated its 10th anniversary on Sept 15, my birthday! ๐Ÿ˜‰

It was star studded, yes, and they came not as celebrities but as friends

With Cat Ilacad, and fellow franchisees

It was a fun and happy event. Like what the videographer said on his post, “Posh Nails know how to party!”

Cheers to a decade of pampering!

If you’d like to join our growing family and invest at Posh Nails go to our website and fill out the forms. If it’s your passion, take the risk. On the business side, a line from an endorser’s greeting caught my attention, it goes something like “Business is tough these days, but you made a good choice in choosing to invest at Posh Nails.”

Running a business is not easy, especially in the customer service department. Even if it is franchised, you don’t sit back and relax. That is for the customers. For the team behind it, it requires a great deal of patience, love and unwavering understanding. There is no single formula in dealing with clients and attendants because each is unique, “to each its own”. But having a Franchisor that’s really nice, kind-hearted and easy to talk to is a ย BIG plus.

I am proud to say that with the sprouting of nail salons here and there, Posh Nails have thrived and worked its way to ten (10) glorious years of pampering already. It is, to say at the very least, tried, tested and trusted. If only for that alone, I am one happy Posh Nails ‘camper’ ๐Ÿ˜‰

Posh Nails Hand & Foot Spa

That’s me and five (5) of my hard working staff

Have you tried Posh Nails? Which branch and how did you like it?

Our branch used to be at SM Marikina, but due to mall restructuring, we opted to move out and is now located along Gil Fernando Ave. (Formerly A. Tuazon)

Posh Nails Marikina Branch
2/F Maryland One Bldg. Gil Fernando Ave.
cor Estrador St. Marikina City


Landmarks: Near Sta. Lucia/Marcos Highway Intersetcion
Across Tapsi Ni Vivian
Above Eastwest Bank
Beside Luyong

I hope to see you there! Do drop by a comment here or at our blog siteย when you visit us, I’d love to hear from you ๐Ÿ˜‰

Festivities of June

Leave a comment

This was on my draft, 5 months to posting eh? LOL. Well, better late than never —

June is usually a festive month. For three straight years, we usually open new business ventures at this time of the year. No, it’s not planned, it just happened to be that way for the past years. This year, no new business (but we recently transfered our nail salon branch). Apart from that, June is Father’s Day month, Our Anniversary, and My Mama’s special day.

Father’s Day was spent with my brother-in-law. We ate ate Tong Yang, JM’s original favorite eat-all-you-can because of the ย hotpot/ shabu shabu. Got a separate post here

Below is Sachi’s Artwork from school

Happy Father’s Day, Daddy! We Love yyooouuuu!

Mama’s birthday dinner with the Villa’s

ย  ย  ย 
Yummy prawns and crabs! Two of my favorite seafood deli

With my cousin who I don’t see very often

And for our anniversary, we had dinner at one of my favorite eat-all-you-can just because they have wonderful greens, marbled beef and olive oil that I love to wrap! ๐Ÿ˜€

So you see, it’s all about eating for us! I never imagined I will enjoy eating this much. From the pihikan and the payatot girl that I used to be, oh what a joy it is to eat! :p ๐Ÿ™‚
