Celebrating Valentine's Day with the Family



How did you spend your Valentine's day? My guess is you spent it in a fine Italian restaurant, had dinner and wine, exchange gifts, danced. That was a typical lovers do during the V-day. How about us singles? 




The best way for singles to spend the "love" day is with their family. Anney's, idea was to set up a  Valentine themed photo booth in a less expensive way, a DIY Valentine Photo Booth and Props. That was indeed a very good idea and the result turned out so good. The photos looked so fun and all of us looked great and the kids enjoyed it. Most importantly, Anneys creativity have made everyone had so much fun. We had a day full of fun and laughters with the kids. Click here to view other pictures.





Belated Happy Valentines to y'all!

Twiglets - Defying Odds

Watching my favorite TV series “Imortal” is at its best when I have twiglets on my hand.  This 79% Wholemeal Wheat twiglets was given by the gorgeous sissy, anney who had an ample supply of this snack in a bid to help her with her weight loss program. I think she overloaded with it and she has no choice but to pass it around because it made her fart uncontrollably. Hahaha. (peace, sissy).


Eat healthily with a whole lot of Crunch in a wholegrain munch. 


When I brought one at the office and passed it around, most of my officemates doesn't like it. Just the right place to find a schadenfreude, I thought. With a sour face, one of them said  "only people with no sense of taste eat twiglets" Tedgc said "its disgusting".  Filipino taste buds found it odd. I couldn't exctly tell you what it tastes like, but hey, I liked it.



Should you fear the BLACK MAMBA?



NO FEAR! thats my status today and so on. I wont fear anyone nor the black mamba. In fact im so excited to watch the show on Saturday, February 19, 2011, 6:00 p.m. at the Ronac ART Center, Ortigas Avenue, Greenhills, San Juan. Gates open at 4:00 p.m.






The Black Mamba highlights Kobe’s everyday determination and “fight to the finish” spirit. The film also showcases Kobe as one of the best basketball players in the world, featuring him as a “protector” of basketball as he fights off those wishing to destroy and attack the game.

Rockin' Red Christmas Party at Dusit Thani



Our Rocking Red themed Christmas Party was held at Dusit Thani in Makati. We came in late, after registering, we had our photo taken at the photo booth and we proceeded to the ballroom afterwards. Sumptuous food were served (click here to take a look of the food). People rocked the ballroom with their rocking red and black outfits.



Infosys rocks! With the talented people and responsible management team the event was full of fun. We had a  talent competition and It was a night full of  loud laughters when the competition started. The most applauded participant were the "Dreamgirls".











Cisco Systems presented couple of songs played by our very own, newly formed band. Unfortunately, we didn't win the 1st place. In all fairness, our entry was the one filled with talents. From playing musical instruments to singing. Don't worry guys, you still won our hearts. Keep on rockin!




Competed by the representatives of different accounts, we had a fair share of joy and promising talents.  The party ended with lots of  prizes and gifts from the management. Everybody happy!
