I shout Pink!

The attire of last Friday night's Globe T@ttoo Awards was to Show individuality. So I've decided to wear this pink bodycon dress. I admit I'm a girly girl and I think, pink is the color that truly describes me. Besides, pink is my forever favorite color. I just love how this dress pops out of the crowd with it's vibrant color!:)

ManilArt Visit X Dinner at Conti's Serendra!:)

Last August 25, 2011, my friends and I visited the ManilArt fair at the NBC Tent Bonifacio Global City Taguig. I blogged about ManilArt here before. They gave us two complimentary tickets each during the ManilArt talk 101! I've decided to bring some friends with me. I was really overwhelmed by how great the art fair was. Imagine the big NBC tent filled up with tons of amazingly created obra maestras! Me, as a fine arts student, I'm exposed to various artworks everyday, but visiting ManilArt was really overwhelming. It inspired me to do more with my art and to think out of the box all the time. There are over 300 artworks displayed during the art fair that lasted for 3 days (August 25-27). ManilArt also gave us a little token!An original artist print of a certain artwork. ManilArt made my artsy fartsy mind hype up!:)

Here are some of the photos during our visit!:)

Joyce, Via, Mica, Abby and I.

These are some of the artworks that I captured.



I love the LV Cow!:)

I think this one is the Mango Salad, Via ordered this.

Abby's Strawberry Yogurt Shake!

Forgot what soup this is. Joyce ordered it.
My pick!Lasagna!I'm a die hard Italian and Japanese food lover you see. This lasagna was insane!It's cheesy and meaty all over. I didn't finished my lasagna on my own, I asked my friend to help me finish it, I was sooo full :))

Via's Beef Pastel

Joyce's Fish Fillet with cheese and mixed vegetables.

This one looks sooo yummy but I forgot what's it called. Ger is the one who ordered this.

I ordered a slice of their Chocolate Mousse as well but I forgot to take a pic of it.Had a great dinner at Conti's. Via and Joyce had Lulu Belle after,froyo time!:)
