Weddings and Wedding Dresses

Getting married? Have you picked up a wedding dress already? I have! I know it is still too early, heck, I am not even engaged, but who knows? It is better to be prepared at all times. Anyway, I have here two of my most favorite wedding dresses from Dress First.



This particular mermaid style dress is strapless with beaded lace overlay. The train satin tulle is long enough for dramatic entrance and exit photos. This is available in four colors (white, champagne, ivory and pink) but for a conservative church such as ours, it is white or ivory for me. This is currently on sale for $441.99 previously $579.


A princess will never be caught dead not owning even a single ball gown so if you are dreaming of a princess-like wedding, a ball gown type of wedding dress is perfect. I especially like this one-shoulder ball gown with organza train and ruffle flowers. I mean, it is a ball gown yet it is not overpowering the bride. This is currently on sale at $260.00 previously $322... the price closed the deal!

I have lots of friends since high school and most of them are married now. But, believe me, I have attended only one wedding out of the many. They wed overseas, that's why.

The first wedding of a friend that I have attended was about three years ago. They were already married in San Francisco, USA for more than a year when they decided to renew their vows in the Philippines in front of their families and friends. My friend wore a simple yet stunning wedding gown--it resembles Duchess Kate's--that accentuated her already glowing beauty. It was a simple yet solemn ceremony held in Our Lady of the Lourdes Church in Tagaytay City. The reception followed at Taal Vista Hotel just a few minutes away from the church.

I don't know of any woman who does not dream of marrying the perfect guy for her. I myself dreams of walking down the aisle wearing my wedding dress toward the altar where my beau is nervously and excitedly waiting. My guy friend asked me one time what is it about weddings and wedding dresses that excite women. Well, I just answered, "it is like being a princess for a day, and we do not want that day to be just an ordinary day so we have to wear something special."

Here are some tips before you buy a wedding dress... be sure it fits and hugs you in all the right places, you don't want to look like you are wearing a potato sack or bandage on your special day; don't limit yourself to one store or designer; and give yourself enough time to decide for your dress.

Good luck on your wedding dress hunting!

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.
********************
To dream of cleaning, according to Dream Moods, implies you are overcoming major obstacles in life. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life.
To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Random Clicks: Oyster Forest Life Resort

I have discovered another place where you can relax and enjoy the long weekend this October... Oyster Forest Life Resort along Sta. Rosa Road, Brgy. Langka, Silang, Cavite. If you are travelling from Tagaytay City, turn left when you see Tagaytay Econo Hotel. It is about 5 to 10 minutes away from the intersection. The resort is actually owned by Oyster Plaza Hotel in Paranaque.
The resort's theme is very Filipino. Bamboo cottages surround the pool area so you feel like you are just lounging in your own backyard without the hustle and bustle of the busy streets and stressful workload. They have a restaurant so you don't have to worry where to buy food when you get hungry. They also have a free WiFi connection so that you can update your Facebook or Twitter accounts for your friends to see how good of a time you are having.

Movie Review: Kita Kita (I See You)

They say "Love is blind", while others say "the lovers are". Whichever you believe in, one thing is for sure, love comes in the most unexpected way. Kita Kita (I See You) is not the typical romantic comedy film you see regularly in theaters. Lea (Alessandra de Rossi) and Tonyo (Empoy Marquez) are the main characters of the movie--they are the most unconventional pair but I was surprised by their chemistry. Their acting was so unbelievable that they made me believe everything is real. 
I laughed and cried. It made me think. It made me see what the eyes can't.
