Happy Birthday, Little Brother!

It's my little brother, Manfred's birthday today! :) Nikko and I joined the "I'm Shoe in Love" bazaar at the NBC tent today (will post about it in the succeeding days) and so my family decided to celebrate Manfred's birthday in the Fort area.

Here are some photos:

Happy Birthday, Big little brother! <3 Thank you for the insane inside jokes! :)

8th Anniversary Dinner at Cafe Ysabel

We had our anniversary dinner last Thursday at the very cozy Cafe Ysabel. It's famous for its romantic ambiance and its delectable food choices. As a matter of fact, the Anthony Bourdain visited this restaurant a few years ago.

8th Anniversary Salubong (Nuat Thai and Somethin' Fishy's Breakfast Buffet)

So, we greeted our eighth anniversary together and celebrated by getting massages in Nuat Thai, Libis (well, we weren't really together and we weren't really talking for the first hour 'cause we were in separate rooms) and having breakfast (midnight, actually) buffet at the Somethin' Fishy restaurant in Eastwood City, Libis.

Happy 8th Anniversary

For the last eight years, you have been treating me like a queen. I still don't know what I did to have you as my soulmate. Really can't ask for anything more. Happy 8th anniversary, my love! ♥

Today, I hung out with my baby niece, Sab. She's the daughter of my second-degree cousin, Ate Cai, who's like a sister to me. They live in UAE so I don't really get to see them often lately. Actually, it was my first time to play around with Sab since I've only seen her in person twice. I would always look at her cute photos and videos on Facebook though.

So this was our first meeting! :) She liked my pink shoes! <3

At Chili's Powerplant with Sab, Mommy, Tita Nanec, Ate Cai and Kuya Bong. Thank you for dinner, Ate Cai and Kuya Bong!

Inside the dressing room of a children's clothing shop in Powerplant Mall. Sab loves fashion, too!

Say hello to my new BFF! :) She's a doll!

She's even cuter in person! She likes shopping and posing for pictures.

I like accompanying kids to rides. :) I have fun with them.
I miss you already, Sab! 'Til next time! :)

Red and Black

I went to school wearing a red and black dress and I matched it with red and black shoes. I got this dress from a department store last year, the cardigan at a bazaar, and the shoes from our Sophisticat Shoe Line. After school, Nikko picked me up at Rockwell and took these photos.

Dress - Landmark Department Store; Cardigan - Bazaar; Shoes - Sophisticat Shoes

I named these shoes Lucy 'cause of Pretty Little Liars' Star Lucy Hale. Check it out at:

Thanks to Nikko for being patient enough to take photos for this blog.

Roast Beef and Pancakes

Whenever I'm too lazy to pick a place to eat, I always choose the Pancake House and order this.

And then I have cheese pancakes for dessert.

Polka Dots

I wore this polka dot ensemble to school today. The dress had been sitting in my closet for years 'cause I've always thought it was too loose. Fell in love with it when I tried it on. True enough, it was a bit loose but the corset/belt solved the problem. Also, I matched the dress with my polka dot wedges from Betsey Johnson.

After school, my mom, Nikko and I had dinner in Eastwood. Now, were still headed to a birthday party in Ortigas, tonight!

This is the view from our condo in Katipunan Avenue. On the left side (the green part) is Ateneo De Manila, my alma mater. I think this photo was taken at around 5:30 in the afternoon. I like this a lot because the sun is still out and yet some of the headlights were already on.

Kimmy Dora 2

I went out with Nikko and some friends (Jan and Lara) to watch Kimmy Dora 2 tonight. We were so lucky to have met Kimmy Dora herself, Eugene Domingo at the cinema lobby and we didn't think twice about having a picture taken with her.

With Kimmy Dora herself!!! Eugene Domingo!

It was great seeing another friend, Camps (in the middle) tonight, too!

And I made it to a article also! :)

Apparently, the link I gave you earlier regarding making it to's gallery did not contain the full story. The article, written by Sarah LeTrent (the reporter who interviewed me) was only uploaded on June 8.

Happy Independence Day, Philippines! <3 Proud to be Filipino!

My family and I have always been fascinated with Italian fashion, culture, and the Mafia. We also love Italian food because there's so many flavors to taste in one bite. 

Last night, we finally got to try this authentic Italian restaurant called Bellini's, in Cubao Expo (which is just a few steps away from where we live). We have been getting a lot of recommendations about it but we just never had the chance to explore Cubao Expo as a family.

Bellini's is owned by Italian Roberto Bellini and his Filipina wife, Ma. Luisa. Signor Roberto was personally there to entertain customers. The food exceeded our expectations and the waiters were also very nice.

If I'm not mistaken, it's where they shot the very popular, One More Chance (starring John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo).

Ciao! Io sono Jannica. :) (Hey, I still know something from my Italian foreign language class in college!)

Italia <3

Dad and Mom

Janna and Nikko

My dad ordered wine for us. He says you can't be in an authentic Italian restaurant and not drink vino.

Pizza means "pie" in Italian. So it's redundant to say "pizza pie".

Pasta platter

Sweet wine. This tastes a lot like Jagermeister.

Gelato cake!

I feel like I'm in a real trattoria in Italy, or at least in Little Italy. Haha

Is that the Leaning Tower of Pisa?
