Birthday Gift: Louis Vuitton Wallet

Oh wow, I just realized that it has been quite sometime, years even, since I wrote about a bag post. If I will have my way, I hope to be a fashion blogger. Yay! My wish. #prettyplease πŸ˜‚

Anyhow, I missed on the opportunity of posting about my recent acquisitions of designer bags and wallets. As if. Hah. This is a latergram belated blog post.

Love you ❤️, Honey-oh for gifting me my 4th Louis Vuitton (πŸ€” let's count the blessings πŸ˜‡). So just you know, my husband is super brand loyal (he loves Nike, but only Kobe Bryant and Jordan lines), for me, he insists thinks I can only do LV and Prada, so far he's supporting only those two brands (I dream of more Givenchy and Balenciaga too). Hahaha. Love you, Hon! For my birthday in California, he gifted me a matching wallet.

Louis Vuitton Zippy Wallet M41895
Official LV Product Description: The Zippy Wallet gets an upgrade: this new version of our iconic wallet boasts 4 extra credit card slots and a colourful leather lining. Combining well-organised functionalities with a pure design, it is the optimal answer to an urban lifestyle. 
Tadaa! Nice-he!!! 😍 I have my must-have cards with me, one side for the misc ( Starbucks Cards x 2, Lee Joon Gi T-Money Card, SSS ID, S&R, HMO Card), the other side is for my bank cards. I have more membership and discount cards, I keep another wallet for those. I love that it has many compartments, just to be better organized. ☺️
Lee Joon Gi T-Money Card + LV Wallet = Love ❣️#Fangirl 
So now for the price, it goes for $805 plus tax, it went to $870. I know because the OR serves as the authenticity proof, I had to ask it for safekeeping. You ought to know except on supermarket and skincare shopping, I tend to be naturally miserly. I have a lower spending threshold. πŸ˜‚ To date, I have two favorite wallet (this and the Prada). While some said it's nice to do matching, my, that's just so much effort. So far, so good. (Meantime) I couldn't ask for more. Cheers! ;-D

P.S. Oh, just in case you are subscribed to my blog (please, please don't unsubscribe, it pains meπŸ’”), you would know that I'm on a blogging marathon πŸ˜‚. Oh my, it must be because it feels like there is a countdown for D-Day (happening on February 15), and while I do hope I'll be true that I will update this more often, will try to blog as much as I can. 

VDay Gift Ideas: Te Amo Floristeria πŸ’πŸŒ·πŸŒΉ

My FB timeline is flooded with Valentine's dates and gift giving. I thought this might be a timely post to do. Lucky, I can confidently ask hubby what I want for gifts. So for our Anniversary I asked him for flowers from Te Amo Floristeria. Its creations are like Korea's Fleurette (IG:_fleurette_), which are Seoul-ful, and feels like home. 😍 Take note, I sent him a screenshot of the arrangement I like. He went home with a bit modified arrangement, more with his style and flower preference. I'm a happy girl.



Te Amo. I love you. ❣️

I did't dare ask the price (but I was dying to do so πŸ˜‚). But eventually I found out, when a friend got one for his wife. Hmmm, so an arrangement like that can go from Php 5000-8000. (Hmmm...πŸ€” Thinks hard as this is like a Pandora Bracelet or a Jo Malone). Okay, I'm content to receive one, annually on our anniversary. Perhaps in the future, I can ask another from my son on my birthday. 

For your arrangement, visit Te Amo Floristeria's Official Website

Address: Ground Floor, Active Fun Building, 28th Avenue Corner 9th Avenue., Taguig, Global city, 1634 Metro Manila

Better late than never: Hello, 2017!

Hello, hello, 2017! 2016, oh how I love thee. 2017, let's bring it on. So far, so good. 

Oh my, hope all is well with everyone. It's really been a while since I went MIA (I do hope you are following me on IG @chicsassymom for daily updates). 

My last post was my October 2016 trip to Seoul. A lot have happened since. A series of post for Seoul 2017 will be shared soon (oh I do hope to find time to do so). Anyhow, I hope to be more diligent. It dawned on me that I was just stressing and dilly dallying, unnecessarily. I do intend to blog a lot, I take thousands of photos, but in the end, between blogging and watching K-Drama, the addiction always win. ;-D 

After Seoul in 2016, we went to Taiwan, Chicago, California. Last February 2017, I went back to Seoul. Please check out my Instagram @chicsassymom #ChicSassyMomTravels. 
Just when I decided to blog today, I opened my MacBook, and no battery!!! Really. I had to take the effort to charge it (should I blog or should I not? hah) and it's already playing on my mind just how I will nag my son later on my rule on never to let it run on low bat, let alone, no bat. Shocks! Okay, I will relax and remind myself it's a Monday. Chill.

I am forced to be a morning person, since the alarm kicks off every 4am, everyday, to nag help my son get ready for school. That would have been super great so I can be early for work, but not, I sneak back to sleep, and ends up forcing myself to wake up again feeling either sleep deprived (complaining how life is so unfair for an employee like yours truly ;-D) or lethargic for someone who can actually afford staying in bad whole day just because I'm on my last two days of vacation before starting out work elsewhere. Yes, I'm moving! Hmmm, will save a post for it. So there, hope this post jumpstart my 2017. 

Chinese New Year officially marks my 2017, we're not Chinese (hubby is only 12.5%), but I take time to celebrate at home with dinner and some traditions just because we were abroad for the past two New Years.  New Year for 2016 we were in Japan and Hongkong, and 2017 we were in California, but we're getting ready for our Jan 1 early flight back to Manila. So here's to new beginning...

I'm sort of into red wine now. πŸ· Just because I read somewhere on the weight-loss benefits of it.  πŸ€”πŸ˜‚
Cheese Plate 101. I love cheese. Those cheese(s) I brought all the way from California, and had to pass a TSA Security Manual scrutiny. πŸ™ŽπŸ»
2016 was beyond amazing. It felt like I was on a rollercoaster. There were a lot of dramas uphill, every climb was challenging, but then every drop was exhilarating. There was a question posted to me on just where do I get the energy to go through all those real life drama (new work/company, LSPA (son's school PTA) presidency, travel, fangirling etc.), I think it's through a lot of help and prayers, that I muster the courage to go through all of them. I'm sincerely thankful. It's not all peaches and cream but I know it can only get better. This blog post I did for CNY 2012, is still very much relevant, relatable and applicable. So here goes...I'm taking 2017! It's mine! It can be yours too! Let's be fabulous in 2017! Happy, 2017! I'll be your forever grateful, at your service, Chic and Sassy Mom!  Cheers! πŸ»πŸŽŠ

Seoul 2016: Ji Chang Wook 3D #FanMeeting #Fangirl

Annyeong, chinggu-ya! 

Highlight of my October 2016 Seoul trip was the Ji Chang Wook 3D best everrr fan meet. Absolutely, one for the record books.

Ji Chang Wook as Kim Je Ha a.k.a. K2 
Ji Chang Wook  #Starstruck
Healer-ya is so back with The K2 this year, finally.

To those who are asking, our Seoul trip was plan ahead of time. Surprised and perfectly timed, that weekend, Ji Chang Wook had his fan meeting. Fated.
Mabuhay! Mahal ka namin, Ji Chang Wook! 2 Fangirls (+1 Fanboy we met on the way out) from the Philippines
While queueing,  this adorable puppy walk around. Fascinating, only to know after, it was Him. Hahaha
In fairness, it's so organize. Now, I have high expectations of fan meeting. Hah.

K-Fangirls, Unite! 
(Unlimited) Chicken and Drinks plus Beer
Showtime.Love, love, love. 


He was in the stage singing, and doing games. Then, the next thing you know, he's walking around the venue, taking selfies. So much for his security protocol. I love him much.




Watching an episode of The K2. He's such an endearing person. No words. 
His Encore performance.  He was out of the venue, but we stayed on and kept shouting for encore, and he went back. Daebak! 
While this is my first Seoul fan meeting and one of the cheapest (I wonder if did the organizer even make a profit, considering unlimited chicken and drinks were provided for), I say that this is really for the record books. Ji Chang Wook was all over the place sincerely providing the highest level of fan service. I bet, it's a security nightmare for his team. I did say in my social media account that I had several up close encounters with him. We connected. πŸ˜‰ Promise. I was just so starstruck that I forget to be sensible. Would you even know? I guess I should have asked for a selfie. πŸ˜‚

Ji Chang Wook oppa, until next time. Cheers! 😍

Anello Backpack πŸŽ’ from Japan in Black and Camouflage

Konbanwa! πŸ™‚

When we went to Japan last time, I wasn't yet privy to Anello bags until my friend bought one also from her Japan trip. It's not only pretty, but very functional and affordable. Nice. Love it.

Com po evinho, anda-se caminho. Apparently, it is a Portuguese proverb, Com pΓ£o e vinho, anda-se caminho, translated, it says "With bread and wine, to walk away!" Makes sense.
