Why, Hello October!

And just like that *snaps*, it’s October! Malapit na naman ang pasko! But before that, 4 very special birthdays are coming up. 2 this month, and 2 next month. Very very special indeed because these are celebrations of the lives of 4 people I simply can’t live without! <3


People born in October are said to be natural leaders -people look up to them. Clever & totally independent. They love nature, are amiable & honest -more emotional than practical. Faithful to family, friends & loved ones. Dedicated & hard-working. And I must say, I agree with every aspect. <3

In between, there’s my favorite occasion -just because it allows me to dress up outrageously hehe.. HALLOWEEN! \m/ This year, we have decided that, first of all, I am the STARfish (of course). ;P And being the star, I get to choose the theme: Under the Sea! No, I can’t be Ariel for obvious reasons (ME??? kenya imagine??). @_@ BUT! I get to be the next best thing.. URSULA! Oh yeeeeess.. tentacles & all. Yay!


flotsam_and_jetsamDo watch out for our wacky Halloween special (with the special participation of my supporting cast members: Ariel, Prince Eric, King Triton & The Eels -Flotsam & Jetsam!) as we didn’t get to have one last year, having been away for the undas holiday. I’m so so excited I can actually burst in my seams!

Speaking of seams, had our costumes made at Tailor Swift located at Westgate Commerce Avenue corner Filinvest Avenue, Muntinlupa. So affordable too! Alterations start at ₱100. Made-to-order clothes start at ₱350. Saan ka pa? Can’t wait to show you our family costume! <3


Had our mother-furdaughter costumes made-to-order! Oh yes, syempre kasali si Lelly. Halloween is near and ya know.. the family that trick or treats together stays together! How lucky to have Taylor Swift.. I mean TAILOR SWIFT to the rescue! Fastest haberdashery in town by the same people who gave you Neil’s Kitchen. Now in Westgate to service you.. and mend your broken.. em.. HEM! \m/


Enjoy any of the following PUN-ny services: Lady Gaya: recreate existing pieces Just-In Beiber: new arrivals (hop for RTW clothes that Neil and Michelle purchased from their travels. Consigned items include spa products, travel essentials, and quirky stationery from friends.) and Oscar Dela Rental: gowns and dresses for rent (Coming soon!).

Another reason to love October is due to my good friend Aencille ‘s workshop on basic watercolor tricks and still life painting! For only P1,800 php per person, the course is inclusive of one (1) artist kit with snacks. Limited slots are available. Wannabe artists, rejoice! This is your chance to release your creative juices. ;)


Art is said to be therapeutic. Art-making is a form of play through which we seek to understand & coordinate our own process with those around us. The art process can be experienced as deeply relaxing, satisfying & positive. Very useful in this fast paced, highly stressful world where every day it seems is a rush getting from one place to the other & getting things done a-s-a-p. So why not take a day off & just chillax? :-*

Live the sweet life and learn the art of painting sweet desserts on October 22 (Saturday) at Yellow Sweets Cafe . To register, simply go to https://form.jotform.me/ 62684543806463 & fill up the form, then submit! ;)

Lastly, for you Romeos & Juliets out there, October is the perfect month to hie off on a romantic destination! It’s the bedroom weather don’cha agree? GO! Live life to the fullest at HALF the price! \m/

October is also very very exciting for Ate as she will soon be slicing open cadavers & using med tools such as this, which incidentally just came in the mail & got her jumping up & down..


Littman is the best when it comes to stethoscopes. I hope this sees many good & productive uses and will be Ate‘s constant partner in her #roadtoMDandbeyond <3


When she gets equally excited opening a package containing a stethoscope as she would a new bag or a pair of shoes.. ya know she’s in it for the long haul! #mayforever #janagoMDmba

As I said, ilang tulog nalang.. Pasko na sinta ko! Don’t be too busy with the trivialities in life that you don’t get to enjoy each day with what & WHO matters most! Let us all learn a little (or a lot) from Apple founder Steve Jobs as he shared his LAST WORDS.


Oh-em! 81 days to go! Let the countdown begin. Have a blessed week ahead guys. :-*
