SPEED LIMIT

Am I driving too fast?
Am I walking too slow?
Am I breathing right?
Or is it just an effect of my beating heart? 
Oh, 'tis the season to paint the town red!
Yes, February indeed is a month filled with so many occasions.
Chinese New Year. My Twin & I's Birthday.
 My Mom's Birthday. Valentine's Day.
Yes, it's a month filled with RED #OOTDs alright.

As I turn 27 in a few days time,
I can't help but wonder what the future has in store for me.
I'm eager yet anxious, excited yet nervous.
It's just a feeling I can't really explain.
I'm not afraid to get old.
I guess it's more of the challenges the future holds.
More is expected of me and from me.
I have to exceed expectations and go beyond what I'm capable of.

Sometimes, 24 hours a day is just not enough anymore.
We're just so engrossed with the virtual world,
That we fail to re-connect with people & things that really matter.

As we celebrate the CNY, let's be ready to turn over a new leaf.
Yes, we can choose to hold on or to let go.
What's important is we've lived life without regrets,
With everything being charged to experience.

Time to wear your best red OOTDs today everyone!
Let's all welcome goodluck with a big red bang.
Yes, there are times when we just want to step on the brakes...
Moments that we just want to hang on forever.
And yet again, there are times when we just want to hit the buttons:
Pause. Rewind. Stop. And Fast Forward.

Yes, you & I have certain speed limits. 
We have to know when enough is enough. 
We have to know when to accelerate and when to back out. 
It doesn't mean we're weak nor do we accept defeat. 
It just means that we're bright enough to make the right decision.

One of the greatest enemies I have right now is time.
Life doesn't stop for anyone 'cause we always gotta keep moving.
When we want something, we've gotta work for it.
And we want to be someone, we've gotta earn it.
I'd always tell myself, "Nothing worth it ever comes easy."
So let's keep on fighting the battle we call LIFE,
With hope for a better and brighter tomorrow.
And to those asking me my V-Day plans,
Oh, I'm single and ready to mingle.
I have the perfect V-Date alright.
Yes, it's no other than my family.
I don't know if Cupid will strike an arrow at me this year.
But I do pray & hope that he'll make me want to be a better person.
Yes, L-O-V-E is a four letter world that makes the world go around.
Crazy or not, we do things we never thought we were capable of.
In the end, let's just be wary of our speed limit.
READY,GET SET, GO!

All eyes are on you, Lady in Red.
Yes, this is and will always be an effortless fashion statement.
Oh, I tell you: "With red, it's always enough said!"
XOXO,

A TAGAYTAY WEDDING

Are you love birds who want to get lost Into The Woods?
Or are you that couple dreaming of a wedding over looking Taal Lake?
If your answer is an resounding 'Yes!', 
Then you are invited to witness an Affair to remember!
Photo taken from Metro Photo's IG account

It was an honor to be part of Dominic & Katie Baula's Wedding Entourage.
From their bubbly wedding invitations,
To our simple yet elegant Rose Gold outfits,
Gowns | Adora Couture

Down to the breathtaking view of Tagaytay Highlands,
Mother of the Bride | Ditas Dajao

Oh, what else is there to ask for?
Necklace | Forever 21
Gown | Adora Couture
An almost 2 hour drive to witness the tying of the knot of our dearest friend was worth it.
Yes, all of us needed a break too from our demanding work schedules,
So thank you love birds for an excuse to escape our busy lives for a moment.
Oh, the change of scenery & a taste of exclusivity indeed perfected our weekend getaway.


ATENEO BLOCK P REPRESENT!

The wedding was held at the picturesque Madre De Dios Chapel,
Situated on a hill overlooking the captivating view of Taal Lake.

Yes, Dom can't seriously take his eyes off his radiant bride.
And he is very much pleased she showed up.
Oh, isn't he just adorable?!
Surely, seeing her wife walk down the aisle is one of the best feelings in the world. 
 And her 'Yes!' becomes life-changing indeed!
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Baula!

The reception followed at The Veranda of Midlands Golf Club.
 I just love how intimate the event felt with just 200 guests celebrating with the couple.
The place was very enchanting, from the greenery to the calming breeze,
It's definitely worth coming back for to celebrate special occasions.

From the very moment you set foot on the reception hall,
It's very hard not to fall in love with a set-up such as this!
The lighting was absolutely incredible,
The garden set-up & the candle-lit banquet table spelled romance all over.
And not to mention, they even had an open bar, serving all kinds of drinks all night long!
Yes, it was indeed a night to remember for all of us.

Don't you just love the Al Fresco Vibe of the buffet place?
It's a perfect mix of modernity, with a laid back feel.
It's as if you're in a City Paradise!
To Dom & Katie,
I wish you all the love & happiness!
Remember, as Father have said, "the language of love is sacrifice."
Both of you turned your backs on Priesthood & Sisterhood for a reason (haha!)---
The reason, being, to spend the rest of your lives with each other!
I believe that L-O-V-E is the force that makes the world go around.
It is this force that makes you do things you never thought you were capable of;
It is this force that makes two separate individuals act as one.
So no matter how many mistakes each other make, choose each other again!
Finding Mr. Right nowadays is really difficult. Gone are the days when everything seemed as simple as a fairytale story. It’s easy to begin a “Once Upon a Time”, but a "They lived happily ever after" takes more than a simple “I do.” Surely, you'd agree that it's really the 'Til death do us part', which is most challenging for couples. Yes, nothing worth it ever comes easy.
Being a hopeless romantic is not being naive. It's not being immature nor unrealistic. Loving doesn't need any reason. You love because you love. It's more than just attraction and commonalities. It's accepting and loving all the good and bad things because all those are you. And when you find that real connection with someone, don't let it go because LOVE makes our world wonderful. Love gives us the reason to accept each other as perfectly imperfect!
So let the magic come alive in your dream wedding too.
You only get married once (hopefully!),
 So makes yours forever linger in your heart, mind & soul too.
Who knows, you might wanna have a Tagaytay Wedding too!  

Yours Truly,
