We’re already gathering requirements needed to get married in the Philippines. And I’m telling you, it’s not easy!
Rod and I are both over 24 years old by the time we apply for a marriage license so we don’t need to ask for parent’s advice. We also don’t have to attend another seminar that is required for 24 years old and below.
The Catholic Church also has it own set of requirements for couples wishing to tie the knot. Obviously, the baptismal and confirmation certificate are needed. While acquiring the certificate is done in minutes, it could also be problematic when you don’t know when you got baptised or confirmed.
Leche Flan is an all-time favourite in the Philippines. But finding good leche flan is hard. I usually don’t order leche flan in a restaurant or even try out other people’s leche flan because my aunt’s leche flan is just hands down the best I’ve ever tasted. Nothing comes close to it. And also, the leche flans you’ll find in restaurants aren’t smooth at all.
Since I can’t get my hands on my aunt’s leche flan here in Austria, I’ve decided to try it out myself.
I have a love affair with good old french toast. My first attempt at it was a big fail. It was bland and boring. Apparently I was using the wrong bread for it and I didn’t soak it quite well enough. But now, I think I finally nailed it. And the recipe is very simple!
Hallstatt is one of the places you’ve got to visit when you’re in Austria. It may be a bit touristy and pricey but still worth the time and effort. I mean, come on, to have another country replicate the whole village speaks volume of how beautiful it is.
They say you need a year to plan for a wedding. What they didn’t tell you is that you’ll end up changing your mind about the details more often than not given the long period of time. For example, I changed my mind about how our wedding cake should look like.
At first, Rod and I agreed that we wanted a simple white cake for our wedding.
1. Monique Lhuillier Tulle Trumpet Dress in Ivory for $448

This dress is actually intended for bridesmaids but I say it can pass off as a wedding gown. This could be perfect for taller girls with an hourglass body shape.
For a price of $448, I’d say this gown is a winner. And it’s a Monique Lhuillier.
Rod and I just celebrated our 5th year anniversary, and I guess it’s just about time to share our Save the Date and our wedding website. The website has been up and running since last year but I wasn’t ready to share it yet. To visit, click the screenshot below:
Via Mateo, a very good friend of mine, designed our save the date. I’m thankful for such wonderful and talented friends. See, I even got more than one version (meron pang iba, actually).
