Happiness comes in small packages. Lucky to be able to bring the kiddo to school on a regular basis.

Wow! We’re half way through 2013 already! Amazing how time flies! June was a month of first. Warren got to travel abroad for the first time and that definitely led to a lot of firsts for him. Compiled a few of my Instagram pictures for June.
1. Simple Travel: Hongkong
Spent the first weekend of June in Hongkong Disneyland with Warren. This was our first family trip abroad. First train ride. First bus ride. First roller coaster ride. A lot of first for Warren. He enjoyed the trip tremendously and the moments were definitely priceless.
2. Prulife: May was a spectacular month for our unit. We hit the company’s all time monthly high. Our unit was the company’s top unit for the month and for that month, we were the overall top unit. As such, our branch broke our previously set record which we celebrated with a sumptuous lunch at Romulo’s.
3. Simple Eats: Currently crushing on Wildflour which opened another branch in Podium. Love their version of pizzas which has a thin base of pastry crust. Their bone marrow dish is also sinfully delicious. The fattiness is nicely balanced by mixing it on bread and topping with salsa. A bit on the expensive side though. Be prepared to pay at least Php1000 per person for a combination of appetizer, main dish and drinks (coffee or their own drink list is a must try!).
4. Business: We participated in our nth Graphics Expo held at SMX Trade Hall. 3 days of marketing our marketing materials and machines.
5. Wedding: What better way to end the month with a wedding by one of my best friends. Best wishes again Ra and Raffy!
Excited for what July will bring! How has your first half of 2013 been so far?

I was able to buy 2 paper bag loads of polos and blouses mostly from the Raf collection. Wallet empty but fashionably happy. 🙂
Our day 2 tour started rather early with breakfast at the hotel at 630AM. We departed for a tour of the city at around 8AM. There were 3 major stops for the day – Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom and Ta Prohm.
Angkor Wat or City of Pagoda is the grandest of all Khmer temples. It was built during the reign of Suryavarman II and was dedicated to the Hindu god, Vishnu. It was said that Cambodians would visit this temple before getting married as Vishnu is said to be also known as the god of love. This is the largest sand stone structure in the World. The city is a sight to marvel as it was built in a span of 35 years using 4000 elephants along with hundreds and thousand pairs of human hands.
We were forewarned by the batch before us that the weather is extremely warm with the air being dry. Armed with a hat, an umbrella and LOTS of sunblock, I walked around Angkor Wat City for almost 2 hours (shopping included!).
We stopped for a group photo at the above site. On our way to the main edifice, we saw some street vendors. More shopping to be done after the tour.
Entering the main edifice, we had to climb through reconstructed walk ways and stairs.
Here are a few shots of the inside of the main edifice –
Next stop? Angkor Thom and Ta Prohm and a new shirt.
It was a long staycation for us last weekend. 4 days of family bonding, tons of shopping and lots of eating.
It was a joy seeing Warren turn our room upside down in his pilyo ways from getting himself stuck in the trash can to dancing to the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse tune. Our boy is growing up fast!
Then, in the afternoon, we were off to the Toy kingdom sale at Megatrade Hall where our wallets got a beating. Good thing we came at the right time. We still got to go around a few times and didn’t endure the tremendously long line when they opened it to the public. At least I’m done with Christmas shopping for some of my inaanaks.
It was also a slight reprieve on my South Beach Diet. Lots of coffee as Starbucks and Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf launched their 2013 planners over the holidays. Got to try Hossein’s and Slice at the Fort for the first time. Both didn’t disappoint. Also got to try Magnolia Ice cream House at Robinson’s Magnolia. The food was not bad but wasn’t able to try their ice cream creations.
Warren and I had our first trick or treat at my bro’s law firm this week. The call time was at 3PM, so, before that, I met with my friend whom I’ve not seen for quite some time already at the nearby restaurant – Gustare. L brought her 8 month old daughter. More playtime with Warren and Mara next time?
All the trick or treat participants congregated on the 10th floor. I was told there was about 47 participants in this year’s trick or treat. Everyone was bedecked in their best Halloween costume. The youngest was a few months old baby who was cutely dressed as a caterpillar! 🙂
I knew we would be getting LOTS of chocolates as there were 70 or more lawyers in their building but I wasn’t expecting that they’d go all out with their decors. We started on the 10th floor and worked our way down to 5th floor. It was bizarre though that Warren was more scared riding the elevator than with the scary costumes and the decors. I thought each floor was outdoing each other in terms of the costumes they donned and the decors they had. I was really just shocked at how good the decor and the costumes were! It was simply amazing! I’ll let you judge with some of the pictures I took.
How was your Trick or Treat? We’re still joining a few more next week! Will post pictures soon! 🙂
Happy Monday everyone! Thought I’d do a run down of what happened to me last week through my Instagram photos. Been uber busy with things just whizzing past me and Instagram has been acting like a diary for me helping me remember what happened the past few days. So, here goes –
So, that’s my week in a nutshell. How did you spend yours?
