My First Ever Threadless Shirts Have Arrived!

My Threadless shirts have arrived! I ordered them on the 15th and they arrived last Friday! Woohoo!

Pretty packages against our pretty place mats!

One shirt for sister dear. This shirt’s called Music Snob.

And one shirt for me! I’m wearing The 13 Days of Christmas.

I wanted to get one for Carpet Head, but I didn’t like the available designs in their $5 collection for guys.  Yeahhh I only had enough monies in my Paypal to pay for two $5 shirts plus shipping, but I’ll definitely order again when I get the dough and the right design! Woohoo!

Ah, Friday!

guava jelly sammich + coffee = love

Today I am suddenly swamped with work.  I was a bit bored all week and now I have to do three slide presentations. Actually, I started one last Tuesday but haven’t finished it yet. Oops. Then my bosses gave me two more to do today. No biggie. It’s Friday!

Later after work, my sister and I will shop for a kitchen knife. We’ve been using our bread knives since we moved in the new place. It’s high time we get something that can actually cut. I hate knives. I think I’m scared of them. No biggie. It’s Friday! 

Today’s breakfast is brought to you by Guava Jelly from Baguio City and good old McDonald’s coffee.

Ah, Friday.



Have a good weekend! :)




High Five Friday

Hi all! My name is Lei and I am psyched to be a guest blogger on A Taste of T! I would like to thank T for this awesome chance. I’ve only discovered her fabulous blog a couple of months back and it’s great that she’s allowed me to be one of her guests.

First, a little something about myself ’cause you’re probably wondering, who the heck is this person? I’m from the Philippines and I started blogging in 2003 but back then it was really just mainly for me and a few friends who knew about it. A few years into it, I became more open to letting more friends know I have a blog. Like most personal bloggers, I blog about anything under the sun. I blog about ultimate (my favorite sport in the world!), places I’ve been to, movies I’ve seen, books I’ve read, music I love. I blog about family and friends. I blog about stuff on the net like cool graphic t-shirts I see online or fun, interesting sites and blogs I’ve discovered. Nothing new or extraordinary really, but hey, my blog’s all me. :)

Anyway, guess what? This is my first blog guesting ever! Cool, right? And I am psyched that it’s for High Five Friday because who doesn’t love Fridays? Before I give out a High Five, let me tell you ramble about why I love Fridays.

Staple silver flats for work!

I get to dress down for work! Well, where I work, dressing down for Fridays means “business appropriate” attire. That means I can chuck the corporate suit, but still have to wear slacks or a skirt, a collared shirt or a cardigan, and closed shoes. No jeans, no t-shirts, no sneaks. I still gotta look business-y, but at least I get a break from being in a suit all week long.

Fridays are also almost always movie night! More often than not I am more excited about the plain popcorn with salt, melted butter and EXTRA butter than the movie. We buy our movie munchies from this neo-vegan cafe near our favorite cinema. A movie AND healthy munchies? Now doesn’t that make for an awesome Friday?

Lastly, I love Fridays because it means it’s the start of the weekend and my weekends are mostly spent playing the greatest sport ever: ultimate. Well, it’s my favorite sport so I get to say that. My team, the Ultimate Warriors, train/play every Saturday afternoon and it’s one of the main things I look forward to all week.


This isn’t our full lineup, but this is from our last league. Photo grabbed from here.

So, enough rambling. If you’ve gotten this far, thanks for reading! Now for that High Five..

I would like to give a big High Five to…. well, whaddayaknow..  A Taste of T! Really, T’s done a great job with this blog. I love that there are regular topics like Awkward Moments and High Five Friday, and that there are the other fun things inbetween. Keep it up, T! Thanks again for giving me my debut guesting gig. Looking forward to your baby posts when you get back from your blog leave. :)

Baguio Trip Preview plus Tishie’s Anniversary Giveaway

Just went on my first summer trip for the year over the weekend. My big bro, big sis and I tagged along Carpet Head and his family in Baguio, the summer capital of the Philippines.  Carpet Head’s sister and her family are here on vacay from the U.S. so we got to do all kinds of tourist-y stuff! It was also my two siblings’ first time in Baguio so it was great.  We visited Baguio’s popular spots like the Philippine Military Academy (PMA), Mines View Park, Burnham Park, and Good Shepherd Convent where we bought delicous goodies. I’ll post more when I have the photos from Carpet Head. He took some great photos!  I used my phone to take this photo of the famous lion’s head.  The lion looks like it’s rolling its eyes at us, the silly tourists. :D

My friend Tish is giving away 3 Cocomo swimsuits for her blog’s anniversary! She’s giving away the cutest bikini, a lovely tankini, and a gorgeous one-piece.  I’m eyeing the one-piece, Black Savannah. I’ve been looking for a great one piece and this one fits the bill. I already feel sexay just looking at it! This would be perfect for my second summer trip: Bora Open! Visit Here, Tishie Tishie to join. :)

What do you have planned for the summer? :)

T-Shirt Friday!

Okay, so I do these t-shirt days anytime I feel like it. I don’t care! T-shirts are absolute love!

Laser Cow shirt from TopatoCo.: I dedicate this shirt to Eggy, the cowboy (koh-boy) who likes to milk cows. :P

Breakfast Sum shirt from TopatoCo.: My equation today would go:  Coffee + Chocolate sliced bread = Breakfast!

What’s your breakfast sum? :)

The Negotiator shirt from TopatoCo.: I agree. Why can’t Rock, Paper and Scissors all get along? LOL.

Have a good weekend!
