Kate Spade Friday

When Carla (the talented artist from Carla Loves to Draw) got invited to the launch of Kate Spade in BGC last week, she asked me and another friend, Clang, to go with her.


And yes, it took me a while to put my makeup on (as Carla’s post specifically mentioned it hahaha) so we could get going. :D


After Carla took photos of all the fancy things (and a mental checklist of things to buy :p), we had dinner at Tampopo to wait for Clang.


Sui Gyoza - which wasn’t spicy at all.


I had Original Kyushu Ramen which I did not finish. It tasted fine, but my favorite ramen place is still Yushoken.


Group photo via a mirror!



We were supposed to go to Baskin Robbins for icecream after Carla and Clang buy their Kate Spade goodies (Carla bought 2 bags and Clang did so as well). But C was already waiting for me so I decided to leave.


So hurray for firsts! Although I honestly did not know what to do on a launch (I didn’t have a camera with me to take photos), and I wasn’t planning to buy a bag (the iPhone case on their website that I was eyeing to buy was not available, also because I had this thing in my head that if I was going to spend that much money on anything, I should really really want it. Yes, I’m frugal.), or anything for that matter. Carla, you should get invited more often (because the macarons they served here were divine!). :D

The Question, Book Tag and Random Facts About Me

I get tagged a lot even if I’m not really active so thank you girls for tagging me. Sometimes I even get tagged twice.. and by Liza nonetheless! :)

The Question: Work

When did you start working?

Does selling all kinds of stuff count? Because if it does, I started a long time ago! But my first legit internship was for three months in 2011. :)

What was your first job?

My first job after college is for a European IT company. I was hired as a Management Trainee where you do all sorts of stuff from IT-related tasks, project management tasks, administration tasks, HR tasks.. even Finance tasks!

What is your current employment?

I’m now a Systems Analyst at the same company.

What is your dream job?

My ultimate dream is to own a bakery and bake for a living! Next would be becoming a Broadway singer which is unattainable because I’m as tone deaf as they come. A host for Mythbusters is also an option for dream job as long as I get to blow things up FOR SCIENCE.

The Question: Places

What country do you come from/What country do you live in?

I was born and raised in the Philippines.

What’s good or/and bad about the place you live in?

Good: there are a lot of nice places to visit locally, it’s not a boring place to live in, I have most of my family and friends here, things are relatively cheap. Bad: corrupt government, it’s not advisable to walk the streets at night/narrow alleyways even in daylight, pickpockets, there is a mall in nearly every corner, for some reason whoever is in charge of development tends to not look ahead and implements temporary solutions for everything (damaged roads, floods, heavy traffic, etc), extreme social classes.

What is (are) your favourite places to go to?

Hmm, I don’t have a favorite. I just happen to like to get away. (my answer does not make sense)

Where is your dream place to live?

London - but only for a year or two. :)

Where do you want to be right now?

Somewhere, anywhere, far enough to forget.
