30 things every Woman should have and Know (by the time she's 30..)

Saw this while browsing the net and caught my attention... So to all the girls who might see this, it's for us... :)

30 Things Every Woman Should Have and Should Know by the Time She's 30.
Source: Glamour Magazine | Date Published: 1997

By 30, you should have..
  • One old boyfriend you can imagine going back to and one who reminds you of how far you’ve come.
  • A decent piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in your family.
  • Something perfect to wear if the employer or man of your dreams wants to see you in an hour.
  • A purse, a suitcase, and an umbrella you’re not ashamed to be seen carrying.
  • A youth you’re content to move beyond.
  • A past juicy enough that you’re looking forward to retelling it in your old age.
  • The realization that you are actually going to have an old age -- and some money set aside to help fund it.
  • An email address, a voice mailbox, and a bank account -- all of which nobody has access to but you.
  • A résumé that is not even the slightest bit padded.
  • One friend who always makes you laugh and one who lets you cry.
  • A set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra.
  • Something ridiculously expensive that you bought for yourself, just because you deserve it.
  • The belief that you deserve it.
  • A skin-care regimen, an exercise routine, and a plan for dealing with those few other facets of life that don’t get better after 30.
  • A solid start on a satisfying career, a satisfying relationship, and all those other facets of life that do get better.

By 30, you should know..
  • How to fall in love without losing yourself.
  • How you feel about having kids.
  • How to quit a job, break up with a man, and confront a friend without ruining the friendship.
  • When to try harder and when to walk away.
  • How to kiss in a way that communicates perfectly what you would and wouldn’t like to happen next.
  • The names of the secretary of state, your great-grandmothers, and the best tailor in town.
  • How to live alone, even if you don’t like to.
  • Where to go -- be it your best friend’s kitchen table or a yoga mat -- when your soul needs soothing.
  • That you can’t change the length of your legs, the width of your hips, or the nature of your parents.
  • That your childhood may not have been perfect, but it’s over.
  • What you would and wouldn’t do for money or love.
  • That nobody gets away with smoking, drinking, doing drugs, or not flossing for very long.
  • Who you can trust, who you can’t, and why you shouldn’t take it personally.
  • Not to apologize for something that isn’t your fault.
  • Why they say life begins at 30

Who Says: Selena Gomez

I'm not a fan of Selena Gomez and find this encouraging to all girls out there. 
So, I just wanna share this to you guys.. Girls are all special.. We are special and beautiful! :)

Who Says 
Songwriters: Emanuel Kiriakou;Priscilla Hamilton

I wouldn't wanna be anybody else, hey
You made me insecure, to me I wasn't good enough
But who are you to judge
When you're a diamond in the rough

I'm sure you got some things
You'd like to change about yourself
But when it comes to me
I wouldn't want to be anybody else

I'm no beauty queen, I'm just beautiful me
You got every right to a beautiful life, come on

Who says, who says you're not perfect
Who says you're not worth it
Who says you're the only one that's hurting
Trust me that's the price of beauty
Who says you're not pretty
Who says you're not beautiful, who says?

It's such a funny thing
How nothing's funny when it's you
You tell 'em what you mean
But they keep whitin' out the the truth

It's like the work of art
That never get to see the light
Keep you beneath the stars
Won't let you touch the sky

I'm no beauty queen, I'm just beautiful me
You got every right to a beautiful life, come on

Who says, who says you're not perfect
Who says you're not worth it
Who says you're the only one that's hurting
Trust me that's the price of beauty
Who says you're not pretty
Who says you're not beautiful, who says?

Who says you're not star potential
Who says you're not presidential
Who says you can't be in movies
Listen to me, listen to me

Who says you don't pass the test
Who says you can't be the best
Who said, who said?
Would you tell me who said that, yeah
Who said

Who says, who says you're not perfect
Who says you're not worth it
Who says you're the only one that's hurting
Trust me that's the price of beauty
Who says you're not pretty
Who says you're not beautiful, who says?

Who says you're not perfect
Who says you're not worth it
Who says you're the only one that's hurting
Trust me that's the price of beauty
Who says you're not pretty
Who says you're not beautiful, who says?

Reyes Barbecue, MOA

Last Monday, B wanted to eat good food-different from the usual.. So He asked me to go with him to MOA after fetching me from work. We roamed around the mall area, until we decided to eat at Reyes Barbecue..

He ordered the combo meal of 2 classic BBQs, 2 grilled liempos, grilled boneless chicken, w/ 4 Java Rice for only 400php.. Nice pick! Mura na malinamnam pa.. +thumbs up+


And because B and I were really hungry that dinner time, 2 Java rice  for each of us,
and ordered and extra one for him.. a total of 3 Java rice for B..  hehe!

Here's the peanut sauce of Reyes BBQ that really fits their BBQ and grilled dishes

Check their website.. really a must try resto!

Power Plant Mall, Rockwell Makati

I know this might sound weird to everybody but this is my first time to go to Powerplant.. hehe..

I went here with B during the long weekend last week because our out of town trip was cancelled due to typhoon Mina (huhu +sad+ ) so B decided to go to here for me to see it.. we arrived at around 11AM, decided to eat at KFC (my favorite) then ordered a frappucino at SB..

Then we stayed in one bench and B played with my cam.. ''Macronizing'' everything he saw... :)

lovely family strolling :)

fruit market at the ground floor that caught my eyes

the interiors

I like the pillars

I felt I was in some hotels in UAE. I like the lights

the fountain at the back park of the mall..
B, thanks so much for bringing me here eventhough it was also your first time.. +wink+ heheh.. off to DAD's...

Mongolian Rice Bowl by Sweet Inspiration

Sometimes, it's sweeter to be together after having a fight. (peace,B! ilabshu!)... B & I had fight the whole weekend end last monday, as his peace offering, B brought me to MOA to eat at Mongolian Rice Bowl (B, you know now how to choose 'GOOD FOOD' huh..) hehe =p

We arrived MOA at around 7:30pm. We thought we wont be able to have the Mongolian Buffet, but when we arrived to the place, at first, we had this hesitation not to enter the resto because there were no people eating.. (thinking that the buffet is already finished) Then the receptionist asked us to enter, then B started to get his ingredients for his fist Mongolian bowl that night...

the interiors of MRB (few people eating.. lucky us!)

The ceiling design.. cute! isn't it?

My first mongolian bowl.. I chose a lot of squid, and chicken with
 sweet and spicy sauce and  more  white onions!

The first Mongolian bowls of the happy couple! Our tummy's capacity 's not yet full..more  please?

After munching with the first bowl, I have to take some break and eat desserts! It's with the
 package- E AT-ALL-YOU-CAN DESSERTS too! (B loves me having sweet tooth!)

choco fudge and choco moose are my fave that night..
not that sweet for me, just right amount for me..
Me waiting for my 2nd bowl.. hungry or full? hehe!

B took this pic of their ceiling interiors while waiting for his 2nd bowl

My 2nd bowl.. full of beef and pork meat.. kaumay!!!! hehe
B's 2nd bowl: sotanghon noodles with lots of beef too mixed with sweet and spicy sauce

Here's the ingredients.. they have generous and helpful attendants
 that would really help you have your perfect Mongolian meal

Here's the guide on how to have a tasty sauce for your meal

The dessert area.. half empty, half full.. thanks Sweet Inspiration!
I will never forget this significant convo we had while eating when we were giving our ratings:
     Me: B, how the food for you? 1 is the lowest 10 is the highest?
     B:    6-7 hon..
     Me: for me its 8.. how about the ambience, the place?
     B:    Since it's not crowded with a lot of people, might as well give 9 for that...
     Me:   me too..
     B:     Eh sa kasama mo? whats the rating?
     Me:  syempre 10 agad! hehe..
     B:    Akala ko you'll say 11 or more.. hehe

Good B! you're sweet that night (maybe because it's after a fight? :D) heheh.. i love you! It won't be a special experience if it's without you... (mushy me!)

outside the Resto, facing the San Miguel by the Bay area..
Here's their promo... happy eating!
Thanks B for your yummy peace offering.. I'm thinking if I could have another fight with you so I could have again a hearty meal with you. :)) love you B!
