Just a little recap of March. Mostly kitty photos, but I'm sure you all knew that already ;)

Kicked off March by attending the yearly Bon Odori Festival at Manila Japanese School with friends. You can check out my separate post here for more photos from that day.

After the festival, we all went to Uptown Parade for dinner. We ate at Peri-Peri Chicken Charcoal & Sauce Bar. I developed a liking for peri-peri chicken after eating so much of it at KL, so when I saw the restaurant I suddenly got a craving for it. (I still miss Nando's though. Their smoky BBQ sauce was SO GOOD...) After dinner, we all hung out at Starbucks until midnight. The lights at the rooftop of Uptown Parade were so pretty that I kept taking selfies while we were there, heh.

There was one point in March that our sleeping pattern somehow went back to "normal" (and by 'normal' I mean Aian and I were awake during the day, like normal people), so I took that chance to take photos for a new makeup review. This was for my Canmake Juicy Lady Liquid Cheek review, which you can read here.

Since I didn't know when we'd shift back to our usual nocturnal sleeping pattern, I wanted to make the most of my time awake during the day time. Whenever I could, I took photos outside. Here I tried doing mori girl makeup again, after a long time. I wanted to re-do my old mori girl makeup tutorial from 2014 (which I've long deleted), because now I have a better understanding of how to handle makeup. I think I did well, but for some reason I'm still not 100% satisfied. I'll try again next time!

On the 14th, we all went out to celebrate Aian's dad's birthday. I suggested that we try out Manam, which has been on my radar ever since I watched that viral video of their crispy palabok. I'm glad we finally got to try it! The palabok was good, but it's only crispy before they pour the sauce. Once they do, it turns to ordinary palabok. Which was a bit of a let-down for me, because I love crispy noodles. The taste more than made up for it though, so it's okay! We also tried their House Crispy Sisig, which was good. Aian said their Seafood Kare-kare was really delicious, but I couldn't try it for myself because it had crab in it. Aian liked it a lot though.

Ever since summer started rolling in, I've been thinking of milk tea 24/7. For the longest time, my go-to milk tea place in BF Resort used to be Infinitea, but I found out recently that there was actually a branch of Macao Imperial Milk Tea in the village, so I've been going there since the start of April.

On the last week of March, we went to Makati to pay for my JLPT exam fees. We got caught in traffic so I almost didn't make it. I was actually shaking inside the elevator on the way up because I didn't want to go back the next day. When I arrived at the JFM office, the person there told me they were about to close in 5 minutes. I quickly paid my exam fees then left. ぎりぎりセーフ...

After that, Aian and I walked (!!!) to Glorietta. I'm surprised we managed to walk all the way to Glorietta without getting super tired, considering it's 1.5km away. Maybe I still have some stamina left over from all the exercising we did in the past? Aian and I used to jog 2km distances, after all, heh. At Glorietta, we met up with Allysa and had dinner at Pancake House. My childhood fave! I remember when the tacos used to be ~P30 each and not P120. Before this, Aian's never tried the food at Pancake House, so I wanted to introduce him to the Golden Brown Waffle. We ended up not eating it though, because we were already full. Next time!

It's gotten quite hot in Manila, but the kitties are as clingy as ever.

Nora not getting to eat because she prefers eating on the right side. All their food is exactly the same....

Leng playing with me. Leng is a good boy and doesn't play with his claws out.

Mori sleeping soundly on top of their little box house. Sometimes Mong sleeps inside the box, so it looks like their house has two "floors" lol.

Mong, Jake, and Mori. Nora's gremlins. These three are my daily source of stress LOL. Which is why I call them the gremlins. But I love them. Even if they sometimes lie on top of my iPad like this.

My April photos are coming up in a bit! May is almost here and summer is well under way... Hope everyone's dealing with this sweltering heat much better than I am! _(:3 」∠)_
