Birthday Mom

It was my mom's birthday yesterday. We had our dinner in Makan Makan Asian Food Village in H20 Hotel, Manila Ocean Park. I've been forever wanting to try matching a long summer dress with any of my black jackets. Eversince I saw some fashion bloggers do it, I thought that the combination is really really really chic. A week ago, my lola told me that she didn't know that I could look taller in long skirts than when I'm in minis. Few days after that, my friends Hannah and Lina said the same thing. I told them this, that fashion is relative. What may look good on others may not look good on me. And what looks good on me might not give the same effect on someone else. It's all about trying out what you think would make you feel more beautiful and what can give you the confidence that you need.

Here are my Lola Ester and the birthday mom

Gulped down some of Michael Jackson (leftmost) and my Bandung with Chin Chow (rightmost) then had Ta-ku (center) for dessert. When Lola asked me what I was drinking, I told her the names of each of the drinks. She asked me what was inside each of them and I said, "It's just taho (soy milk) and the other one is strawberry taho (strawberry flavored soy milk)".

  23. Hi Gellie! Thanks for following my bookish blog, Mrs. BG. Returned the follow. Izzy from Views of Now is a collaborator at Mrs. BG. btw. I guess that is how you found our cozy book nook and I'm so happy you did. I only do the occasional style post on my nonbook blog but I do appreciate fashion and am looking forward to reading your blog.

    Cute maxi dress. I don't own one and usually wear just above the knee length but I wore a long hippie skirt last week and loved it-- maybe a maxi dress is in my future.
