What I love about hanging out with friends is that I get to explore or re-explore food places that I want to try for myself. Last year, we had a girl’s night out in Mary Grace in Greenbelt 1.
I love the place! I love the ambiance! Very much! I don’t have photos of the food though. We ordered greens and pasta. I like their drinks selection and how they kept their menu simple and very ‘at home.’
I’m sharing you a few photos I took before we were engulfed in our girl time!
Mary Grace’ menu
Pretty table arrangement!

Closer look at the ceiling <3
Notes, letters and surveys.
Most sincere note/letter and template I read that night
Mary Grace offers home-cooked meals and perfect ambiance to families and friends. If you want intimate dinners, this is the place to be.
My birthday’s just around the corner. This year, it’s not actually on a day you want to celebrate it because it falls on a Black Saturday and most people in our neighborhood (well our family is) wants to just keep their Holy Week, well, holy. I am not expecting a big celebration. My mom’s just preparing food to share with my titos, titas and cousins. And a bit of swimming too.
For me, it’s a 4-day rejuvenation week. To catch up on TV shows, books, travel posts and more stories to tell. And let me start this story-telling weekend with a little treat from the university that helped shaped me into becoming who I am today.
Arrived in mail today.
I love it. It’s true that it takes a long time to grow young. Very appropriate quote for a birthday card. I appreciate what they did here, and I hope fellow Lasallians get the same greeting card too.
Animo La Salle!
Happy weekend, folks! I hope you have a blessed one. Stay safe!
Bonding with OJTs. And the food that comes with it.
New people, new friends to welcome to the working world. Haha.
I found my book! Yay! It’s been here in my room all along. I guess my dad left it here weeks ago when I told him I left it in the car.
It’s been three months without any progress in my books-to-read list. Which by the way includes:
- Dance with Dragons (G.R.R. Martin)
- Face to Face (Bianca Valerio)
- The Secret Shopper’s Revenge (Kate Harrison)
- and a whole lot more
These are just the books I’ve started reading. I have no plans of starting the Secret Shopper’s Revenge actually. It’s just that I lost my Dance with Dragons for a while back there.
I’m also reading (again) Catching Fire because of Liam Hemsworth’s recent visit here in the Philippines. I was picturing a very different look for Gale (Hemsworth’s character in the movie ‘Hunger Games’) before the movie came out. And now, I try to imagine LH both as Peeta and Gale. With Liam there, everything’s so much better.
It’s been months since my last book purchase. Well, an exception would be this one mini-book that I consider to be part of my Summit Books Modern Fiction collection – the third installment for ‘Vince’s Life’ because 1) it’s on sale 2) I lent my copy to a previous co-worker 3) it’s on sale.
I think that’s about all the non-sense update about my books list. Haha. I promised myself to read 30 books this year. And so far, I have finished z-e-r-o. Hopefully I can finish at least one before my birthday. Do you think I should count the to-read-again books too?
I have almost forgotten about my love for South Korea. I still love everything about it, but the passion is almost dead.
Then I opened my Google Reader and I remembered I created a folder solely for anything Korea-related that I find amusing.
I’ve gotta find time for these. GUSSSHH..
It’s definitely the time to start managing my time. But it’s too difficult to say no to a long afternoon of TV shows marathon. Or a long hours of doing nothing. But this has to stop!!! So if I cannot keep up, maybe my phone and data plan could help me. Haha!
It’s been a whole since I posted here. I’ve been really preoccupied with work and adjustments (it’s taking me a very long time to adjust) that it’s hard to find time to write and update everything that needs updating. But I’d like to share something with you guys. My siblings are looking for old photos to put in picture frames for the new house and they put up this photo of me and my older sister. This has been one of my most favorite photos ever. We look so innocent and cute here! This was when we were still in Saudi Arabia.
Just a quick update, we’re here at Cafe by the Ruins in Baguio City for lunch. I’m with my Digicon family and this is what we usually do after an event. We eat.
Lovin the menu! Will try to take photos of the food!
Baguio Bounty Salad!
