life lately // August

September 16, 2016

Hey everyone—apologies for disappearing for a week! The truth is I've had this post in my head since I published the last one, but I didn't know how to go about posting it. I really wanted to do a Life Lately post for August, but when I tried looking for photos I couldn't find much. I think the reason is because Aian's been really busy with projects lately, so we've been spending most of our time at home. The only ever times we went out were when we went to eat out, hang out at Mr. Park's, or see a movie (but we only saw two recently – One Piece Gold and Train to Busan), and when I'm at home I only ever take snaps of the kids (the cats, if you're still wondering), so I just gathered what I could from my phone.

Met up with Xandra and Iso with Aian. Coincidentally, a Pokemon Go Lure Party was happening in the middle of Town that same day, so....

Attended the Christening for my niece (my brother's bebe), where I went from being a tita to a ninang. Titavolution, lol.

Did my first ~*~official~*~ post as a Canmake Philippines Brand Ambassador! (You can see the post here.)

Discovered the new Mr. Park's in BFRV, which quickly became our new favorite hangout place. (Check out my post on Mr. Park's here.)

Spent a lot of my afternoons with these freeloaders hanging outside Aian's place. We've been feeding these strays for quite some time now.

...aaand this one eventually joined our cat family. That brings us to a total of seven! (Plus the other two of course, that we feed outside, so nine. The calico is quite independent—the black one not so much. If you know of anyone in Las Piñas looking to adopt a cat, please feel free to contact me!)

To cap this month off, we watched One Piece Gold! I LOVE One Piece so much, so I was really glad we could watch it despite the limited screening times. It was a *Franky voice* SUPERRR good movie, but I felt a bit sad because there wasn't a lot of scenes with Choppy in it! I think in terms of story and fight scenes, I still like One Piece Z the best. Both are really good though, so I definitely recommend watching both!
