A meeting three years in the making

27 November 2010

After more or less three years of online friendship, I finally got to meet Regine in person. We met way back when my main blog was still my Multiply journal and when I have just started getting addicted to online shopping. She used to have an online shop and I bought a couple of accessories from her, and then she started replying to my blog posts (especially when they're about books). It was so easy to be friends with her since we had common interests, plus our courses in college were kind of related. She is actually the one who introduced me to the wonderful universe of Neil Gaiman by recommending Stardust to me. I agree with her wholeheartedly when she say it is one of the best love stories she has ever read :)

This is the nth time this year that I have met an online friend in person. I am getting really good at this, don't you think so? ;)

First we ate at Cocktales
where I had Pasta Puttanesca (175php)
and Jungle Juice Pure Juice (150php) which is a mix of pineapple, apple, carrot and orange juices with strawberries. Yummy!
We talked about lots of different things, and I am continuously amazed at how I am so fortunate to have been blessed with the chance to meet all these amazing individuals like Rej. It was so easy to gab with her, it was as if we do this catching-up over food thingie every week.

We did what we love best: shopping! I also gave her a copy of Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat Pray Love as a very early Christmas present :)

And of course, what is a day with a girl friend without dessert?

We indulged in Parvati
where I had the most sinful Chocolate Cake.
It's chocolate upon chocolate upon chocolate!
Such a lovely day spent with a lovely friend, one which I am sure will be repeated very soon! Calling all my blogger friends based in Manila, how about a Christmas party? Yes I am looking at you Ana, Ava, Mai, and Jessica. And Rej, of course! It wouldn't even have to be a full-blown party, it can be just an afternoon bonding over dessert and/ or candy canes ;D

What I wore:
Olive green shirtdress - thrifted
Floral belt - Singapore
Beige bucket bag - thrifted
Camel oxford booties - Tinsley Online
Loot for today: All Organics Mood Spray (Lavender) for my new apartment, Marla Miniano's Table for Two, and Maybelline Watershine Pure Lipstick in R22
PS: I'm spreading Christmas cheer and sending out cards to everyone who'll want them! Just send me an email at krissyfied[at]gmail[dot]com with your mailing address.
