The area is open for Dine-In so there is no air conditioning.

It was gloomy last Saturday which is why the outside looks pretty cloudy.

My brunch looks soooooo good!🀀 I did not expect that the serving is A LOT so I was pretty upset when I wasn't able to finish the entire bowl because I was just halfway through and I felt full already.

MY THOUGHTS ON "SIP CAFE"

This little cafe is found in Capitol, near Cebu Doctor's Hospital. I appreciate their minimalist interiors. Their kimchi fried rice was flavoury. The sauteed vegetables-- togi, mushrooms and "green leafy things" tasted quite not bad. I LOVED THE BEEF BULGOGI because of its "smokin" flavour. I LOVED THE KIMCHI because it has a strong spicy kick😍 and I appreciate it! Their latte was creamy and only a bit bitter. The caramel drizzle made it sweeter. As for the space, it is a bit small. It is a good place to visit when you do not want a crowd. The crew's friendly and quick to serve, too. Overall, I enjoyed my food and coffee and I loved the vibes of this cute small cafe.πŸ’–


IT HAS BEEN A LOOOONG TIME SINCE I WENT OUT SHOPPING.
We took advantage of the "Crazy Sale" going on.

HERE ARE THE THINGS I SHOPPED FORπŸ’ƒ
IMG_20210904_185446.jpg
H&M Black Boots | When I was in college, I used to wish I could buy boots like the ones the magazine cover models wear. I don't know why I have always been fascinated with wearing boots even when IT IS SO, SO HOT here in the Philippines. This pair is my second H&M Boots already.πŸ˜…πŸ˜
IMG_20210904_185456.jpg
Terranova Leather Black Dress | I used to envy bloggers who wear this kind of cloth, so I was really glad it was on sale because by then I don't get to regret buying such a "hot-packed" dress not perfect for our humid weather. I can justify it by saying, "Nah, it's fine, it was on sale anyway" LOL.πŸ˜…
IMG_20210904_190039.jpg
I HAVE A FASCINATION FOR SOCKS HUHU😭My eyes formed hearts as soon as I saw that these H&M cotton socks were on sale! I immediately added them to my shopping cart.😍
IMG_20210904_185901.jpg
I kinda took advantage of the "Beauty sale".😁 The last time I bought "beauty" stuff in a physical store was around January 2020 I guess. It felt so good to be able to purchase and go shopping yeyyy for small victories in lifeπŸ˜…

πŸ’• IT IS A SUNDAY FUN-DAY! πŸ™Œ

WHAT I WORE FOR THE WEEKEND
OOTD shots for Saturday and SundayπŸ˜πŸ˜…


Last July 3rd, 2021, I signed up, and I posted my Introduction on the fourth of July. In a span of two months, I am so happy with my personal growth here in Hive. I am beyond blessed to belong in a community of encouraging, warm and passionate people who push me to become a better version of myself and it humbles me in such a powerful way.😭😍 And honestly speaking, Hive has now been one of the many things I look forward to doing every day. I want to learn more about content creation and financial management as well so that the future me will thank the current me for being able to be a "financially savvy" person.
As I stated in my previous post on my first-month celeb, Hive has been a blessing and an answered prayer for me! I blogged way back in 2014 and stopped rather abruptly around 2017. Last year when the pandemic hit, I wanted to blog again because I have so much stuff I wrote in my journal and I want to share them with the rest of the world. The Universe gave me Hive, God gave this opportunity to me. I will do my best to keep this answered prayer of mine. πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰ I CANNOT WAIT TO CREATE MORE CONTENT HERE AND GROW ALONGSIDE WONDERFUL PEOPLE IN THIS COMMUNITY~!πŸ€žπŸ™πŸ™Œ
