Icey and Melai's Birthday Celebs at the Agogo

Just two weeks ago, we celebrated two birthdays. Once is Icey's 22nd and the next is Melai's 26th. Both parties are held at Cafe Agogo along Julia Vargas Ortigas Pasig. Besides the fact that Cafe Agogo is just a few blocks away from our office - I think one thing that drives us back to that place is it's cozy ambiance. I mentioned on my previous posts that it is the best place to unwind and have a good laugh with your friends with their low lighted effect and their comfy chairs. The bar is not that crowded and the menu is also affordable. They have what they call "Happy Hour Promo" in which you could get 3 bottles of iced cold San Mig Light or two servings of Cosmopolitan for only a hundred bucks. My favorite breakfast treat Spanish Omelet costs me only P69 with free Iced Tea! Other dishes are also reasonably priced and tastes good as well. I once tried their Rosemary Chicken with Iced Tea for P169 and although it's not the best roasted chicken I've ever tasted...I feel full as their servings are big.

Ice's Birthday:
Oct 1st, though I don't have a shift that day... I went to the office to celebrate this day with her. Though this is really what we originally planned for this ocassion as we're supposed to celebrate it in Astoria Plaza but because of Ondoy's destructive forces which affected most of her friends, she decided to just solemnly celebrate it with us, the survivors. LOL. Here's a glimpse of that wacky event. Happy Birthday Bebe Girl!

The 2nd Celebration was Melai's 26th birthday.
Oct 5th, this one was really not planned. Melai even left her money at home so there is really no formal invitation. She wants to celebrate it the day after but unfortunately I won't be available as it is already my niece's wedding. Well, I think she came up with an idea and just asked her mom and sister Budz to just drop by the office, bring along her wallet and just celebrate with us. So off we went to Cafe Agogo and celebrated her 26th fruitful years. Her sister Budz and her mother Mamang joined our crazy crowd and laughed along with us. Here's a peek of that joyous event.
Happy Birthday Melai!

My Little Dream House

I and my friends Melai and Sam is planning to get a house of our own. Well, getting a house and lot of my own has always been my dream since I was young. I often dream of having my own room as I would like to have it painted pink. I would adorn it with accessories and I would make sure that it would be the most comfortable place in the world for me. But since I entered this current relationship of mine which would probably lead to marriage...getting a house that we could call ours became a necessity. I browsed through the net and found a simple and cute low cost housing located at Caloocan City. I found it very affordable as it would only cost me almost P4100 payable in 30 years to own that property. It is a 50 sqm property, with house and lot, with provision for one bedroom at the loft. Though the lot area is not that big, I guess a little bit of imagination and creativity would work with it. I already have a plan in mind on how I would beautify this house. I would paint it with pink, blue and green to have that colorful effect. I would buy colorful Rugs, pillows and curtains to have a jolly effect. Once I was able to pay at least 1/4 of the price of the house, I would save so I could remodel the house and build a second floor with two rooms. One for me and my hubby and the second room would be for my children. I also would build a room on the first floor and would maximize the floor area of the property for my mother. Just thinking of what I could to improve the house excites me.


Here's some of the photo's of the house I've been referring to.

this is the front view. I prefer pink instead of blue paint


there's the kitchen and the dining table and the sofa. i need to buy small furnitures because of the limited floor area.

i think i need to buy a smaller sofa than this...

and a wood type dining table. I would buy some Area Rugs to adorn the floor.

here's the 2nd floor. It would be the master bedroom...


it's a good idea to buy this type of bed as the ceiling on the 2nd floor is not that high.

We'll gonna visit the site next week. I really pray I could get a flood free house with a good community. I need not a very big house, a small but organized and colorful house would be enough for me and my future family. I would just accessorize it with Cheap Rugs and colorful curtains. I'm so excited.
