I remember the first time I loved the idea of wearing camisole as an outerwear was when I saw Philippine songbird wore one on a Cosmopolitan magazine cover. The idea of  a soft, satin camisole against a structured pencil skirt was very tempting. I’ve had this vintage pencil skirt for quite some time when we unearthed this from my mom-in-law’s basement and I couldn’t find the perfect top to wear with it until I saw this camisole — perfect pastel pink color with a punch of black lace.

This sweet, charming, inviting outfit couldn’t be more appropriate than for darling B’s birthday dinner date.

I remember the first time I met B, he was just twenty-five, and this year — he’s celebrating his thirty-second birthday! Amazing seven years have passed and I am one happy woman to be celebrating his birthday again with me. I’d say I am not a good gift-giver and so I tend to lean towards throwing him a food feast as my little surprise gift. Don’t judge!

Last year, I prepared him some breakfast in bed and a dinner date. This year, well, he got a not-so-surprise birthday dinner at Oakroom.

Speaking of birthdays, I will never ever forget this beautiful birthday song that darling B played to me on one of my birthdays and it’s now part of our birthday’s little tradition…

Celebrating life’s occasion spells good food, endless conversations and lots of laughter.

This time, we celebrated my youngest brother-in-law’s birthday at this restaurant that serves Pinoy food which mostly of Kapampangan origin. Here we revisited some Pinoy favorite dishes: Crispy Pata and Kare-Kare to name a few.
