Have you ever had the chance to meet a group who mirrors your own? Crazy, huh? Well, wait ’til I tell you more about it.
I met the titwas group thru my Insta. It was mommah Racki as I fondly call her who started it all. Because of her obsession with Hermes, little did we know that it will bring us together and would be a start of a good friendship.
So the 3 of them (Tita Ana, Tita Me-An and Mama Racki) and my kuris (Kakat, Maan and I) were officially introduced during my birthday bash.
All six of us were seated together and as the conversations got deeper, we all realized that all three of them were actually the older versions of the three of us!
Mama Racki= (the ultimate madame who loves everything beautiful) = Me (ambisyosa ako bakit ba)
Tita Me-An (the more reserved one) = Maan
Tita Ana (The jack of all trades)= Kakat
Even the way we react to certain topics, people, chikkas are technically the same.
Mama Racki the feisty one who always has a witty response to almost everything resembles my persona in all ways possible. Generous, loving and extremely busy. Of course good traits, needless to say. 😀
Tita Mean always responds with a giggle and a more subtle way, like Maan. Then again whenever she starts warming up and tell her stories and addiction to shoes- be prepared to laugh your heart out- exactly how Maan is the ultimate Kuri. Tita Mean’s love for shoes extended to my shoe room —- we share the same size. What a lucky woman! hahaha!
Tita Ana, (BTW Kakat’s first name is Ana) who never lets her friends down— and is always present is also such a character. Like Keket. She travels to learn new stuff and ask her- just do- to travel the following day and she will make a way to join. (kakat na Kakat di ba?) bwahahah! She lives to travel. Works for her loves—- her passion and shopping included.
What makes me happy and proud about having these girls in my life is the fact that there are no insecurities between us. Everyone supports each other and is always happy about our achievements. Together, we are unstoppable. All three of them technically work in the same field. Each co-existing with one another. They support each other by helping one get good deals should they have clients who needs the services of the other.
Isn’t this amazing? For me, this is how empowered we should all be. Instead of pulling one another down, let’s help each other rise up. At the end of the day, it’s nice to have a bottle of sparkling altogether laughing off the hardships and learning from them too.
I believe the people I lost from the past were replaced by better ones and of course better with my constant group.
I look forward to learning more and enjoying more blissful years with these ladies. 🙂
By the way, we had a small get together with the titwas earlier for Tita Ana’s Bday. Look what she wrote for me instead of I making some tear jerker lines for her.
Touched, blessed and loved all the time.
It was another random trip with kitty kat in tow.
As always, it’s such a pleasure working and having fun at the same time, with my BFF.
The event was by invite-only and we were escorted to the VIP section where the bosses of AP were located. I feel extremely happy to get the kind of support their team extended. I am also given the chance to get custom-made orders for my clients. Which isn’t available to all. Extremely grateful to be able to offer another unique and personalized service to my clients.
Right after the event we had to rush to Orchard for the exclusive preview of Dolce and Gabbana. I held a small live session on Instagram and was totally delighted that the viewers learned a thing or two. It makes my job all the more meaningful and fulfilling when I get to impart even the slightest bit of trivia to others.
‘Til my next adventure!
It’s almost the second quarter of the year already! Golly! Where did time go?
Anyway, March 1st is my mama’s birthday. So today we celebrated it with our extended family, the kuris and their fams.
Mama and her beshie Mommy Christy are already planning their day out haha and I’m all for it! Yup our families are this close and we loveeeee it.
Mama shares the same birthday with Rachel, (kuriKat’s sister-in-law and self-proclaimed member of beshies haha).
Bday girl Rachel whose alter ego is——— ADELLEEEEE (lan…) chos hahhaah!
We had a simple dinner celebration with our own version of ‘family’ the ones we chose for ourselves 😉
I know Kuya Aph, (My amuys) Ferds (of FerKat) and Choki (choki chocolate) are waiting for this post since they’ve always wanted to see themselves in my blog. So today, it’s your time to shine! hahaha
Amuys extraordinaire Kuya Aph!!! hahahahah!
(He actually has a tooth ache today but managed to chew on lechon and steak, as I always say, “maliit na bagay” hahha)
This will be a very fun and light post so enjoy the photos as we had fun taking them.
Yay! Finally complete after almost a month!! My KuriCore
(Adelle) Rachel, KuriMaan, KuriKat and meeee
Kuya Aph again! Wuhooo! So Bida!!! hahahaha! Rach and cutie Raffa
This is actually kuya Aph’s entry I believe. haha
With the Star of the night Choki!!!
We plan to have another celebration since we missed each other so much that the time we spent today wasn’t enough.
Happiest Birthday again to my mama. I love you!
And yes, Beshie Rachel too! haha
Love you all always!
So the big day we all waited for finally came. Brushing aside the incident brought about by the designer, we all enjoyed the wedding and had a great time. It was indeed a celebration of love, family and friendship.
with Rv Mitra
These are just some of the photos I collected which I will update when the official ones are out. It was a very happy and emotional wedding. Maan and I gave our speeches.
As always we didn’t prepare anything. Instead, we talked and shared everything based on how we felt and our memories. After our speeches I saw a couple of friends teary eyed and walked to me to tell me that they were moved. That our friendship and closeness is something they admire. I am happy to hear that from other people. As I always say, I only have a number of real friends. For others to admire the level of friendship that I have with my best friends means so much to me.
I actually am very happy for Ferds and Kat. I pray that they be blessed with a union that’s blissful and meaningful. May you both enjoy this new chapter together and remember that we are just here for you.
Attaching the SDE from RV Mitra photography to all of you. #FerdsKatForever
Why hello there lovies! Apologies on being a bit late on updating this site. As you see, December is extremely busy. So let me make up to you by writing more than 1 entry today, okay?
First on the list are the presents I received this season. Truth be told, even a simple hand written note means a lot to me. Imagine my reaction when I got all these babies as presents.
one of my favorite scents from Yan 🙂
I am so thankful for the presents but above all, I am grateful that I am remembered. I feel loved. No matter how small my circle is, I wouldn’t trade them to a million friends who are only there during happy times. 🙂
I know, I know. Been MIA for 2 days and even my mom’s bugging me to write a new entry. (Stage mom sya hehe). I had 2 celebrations for this year. 1 was my salubong with my closest friends and tonight I had dinner with my family and the kuris.
Yan Yan even surprised me with her presence when she told me she’s still in her Mcdonald’s event! I felt really loved and appreciated because she made time for me out of her extremely busy schedule. I love her to bits! She never fails to remember and she knows how to pull off a surprise perfectly!!
I will post the photos and get into detail about it tomorrow as our dinner just commenced. hehe! I had a great time and more than the material gifts, the gift of family and friendship are the most important ones I have received.
After the party, I will now work on a charity project with my friends and celebrity clients (friends as well) as my way of giving back to the less fortunate. God helped me and gave me a chance to be a vessel in helping them so I will make use of it and make sure that I do my part in fulfilling my duty as His steward.
My cup is always being filled and I’d like to share the abundance to others in every way possible.
Promise to write about all these by tomorrow! Thank you for all your messages and for allowing me to have a celebration. Ang taray! May ganon. HAHA!
Thank you. Thank you.
Love and prayers to everyone.
It’s 11:50 PM of December 11 and as promised, I will be announcing the winners for my birthjday/blog give away.
First, allow me to thank all of you for taking time to read my posts and articles. Reading your entries made my heart swell with joy. I was left teary-eyed because I never really thought my writing, my stories, my experiences and my life in its totality can affect people in a good way.
I started this blog without expectations. I didn’t put this up for the fame or what not. I did this to satisfy my hunger for writing. To have a journal of my life, the ups and downs and how I choose to always turn the odds in my favor. How I choose to make good of the circumstances that are quite unpleasant.
Again, thank you very much. Yes, please expect more articles as soon as I finish my engagements. I will continue to share my experiences and shopping journeys for your favorites.
Now, here are the winners!!!
By the way Kuris decided to add more shoemate prizes and dinner invitations since it was really really difficult to choose!!
