As early as 5:30 am, we woke up at the sound of the alarm. Rushed our way to Dubai for another weekend with bff, this time with our partners. (Actually only for aning and me… hehe) It was a welcome party for Eufort and post birthday celebration of Aning, and all for the love of my bff. Happy birthday Ning!

After rounding up, we headed to JBR and had brunch at Wok Away. Thai cuisine was the unanimous choice. They served bread with olive oil and vinaigrette dipped while waiting, And for the main entrée, we had Nasi Goring, Pad Thai and Chinese Grill.

Hubby’s Nasi Goring for only 65.00 AEd

My pad Thai for only 65.00 AED.

Usual bff bonding wouldn’t be complete w/out photos.

Everyone was enjoying even the weather was nice, all of a sudden my migraine got worse. I hate it because some plans were cancelled. My head was so heavy and was very nauseous. I lost my appetite and vomit frequently. Ooops! There goes my lunch.

I got this at Carrefour on sale… Montagne Jeunese Chocolate Masque. Back in college, I was a facial addict. But after that, since with a busy schedule, it kinda slipped away.

True to its promise after applying, smooth and soft skin. The chocolate smell made me crave for the real thing. Eye love it! Hahaha! It’s very affordable for working woman in the Mid East like me, where salon is very expensive. ekkk.

It’s only 4.90 AED at Carrefour (marina mall)

Also it was fun to take pictures with chocolate on my face.

Repurchase: Yes, in different flavor

It was a busy weekend once again, more so with the wedding and vacation prep. Cleaning and laundering as the usual thing in the morning and off to Marina Mall in the afternoon for more pasalubong shopping, like this Fossil watch for my mom.

After picking up some stuff at lifestyle, we grabbed a bite at Figaro’s pizza. We only had onion rings and special Figaro pizza because dinner party is waiting.

“All at once” – the birthday girlalou, Marvin sang his national anthem. And for the first time I heard Red’s voice giving justice to Ms. Regine Velasquez’ Tanging Mahal. By the way, He will sing the Prayer as I walk down the aisle.

 Totally… it was fun, fun, fun weekend.

My previous post on giveaways was about our choices but the top pick was the coffee mug. Since we weren’t able to find a decent apple shape mug, luckily a better design came up. Hubby and I were so excited when we saw the lay-out… can’t wait to see it in action in our wedding day.

Look at these designs… isn’t it fabulous??? Clap...clap...clap

Actually these mugs are affordable. The lady behind is no other than Ms. Evelyn of ceramikhauscebu. For more info: email her at ceramikhaus@yahoo.com or log on to http://www.ceramikhaus.com

SDE – definitely it’s not related or close to STD. It’s the same-day-edit. From the prep to the wedding proper, the videographer sums it all in a 4 minute video. Amazing huh! Usually with SDE, the package will be very expensive but I got a good deal from Slystudios, It’s a freebie! Yipeee!!!

Song choices for SDE:

Your love is Strong by Jon Foreman (videos here)

Cosmic Love  by Florence and the Machine

The Way I Am by Ingrid Michaelson

Better Together by Jack Johnson

According to SLY, the man behind Slystudios, he will choose the song from the list that suits best the video. And yes, subject to our approval.
