Thursday, January 14


today was such a wonderful day. i decided that my bf and i should go skating at the forks. it was gorgeous outside and we didn't want the day to be put to waste of course...
-4 degrees = perfect skating weather!

it's been awhile since i used these

i was trying to figure out what to wear for a skating day. i really wanted to wear a skirt, but i didn't know if i'll last the whole afternoon if i did that. i ended up wearing jeans and my new oxford shoes! :D
outfit: joe fresh top, AE jeans, gojane oxfords, jacob belt

when we got there, we first looked around the place and saw this ice castle! timer shots for the both of us! :D
yes, i'm that small! haha!

it was good that there weren't so many people at the forks so i had more space to practice my non-existent skating skills. haha! my bf was having a grand time since he loved this activity. as for me, i have this love-hate thing going on with it. i know how to balance myself, but when i get the flow and start to accelerate, i just end up in the ditch or something since i don't know how to stop! hahahaha!
baby steps

yes, i was panicking at this moment!!!

failed attempt to take timer shots of us (in skates)


jump & kick!

end of skating trail

by 4pm, we decided to end our skating escapade and headed to a nearby italian & greek restaurant called Sta. Lucia. its funny because the last time we were in this place was the exact same date last year. anyway, food was so delicious as always. i was just watching iron chef last night with cheese as their main ingredient and getting the lasagna for dinner awhile ago was just satisfaction!!!!
lasagna with cheesy goodness!!!!

chicken strips w/ honey garlic

best garlic toast ever!

oh btw, if you have been reading my chictopia posts before, you know that i used to work in campus as a grader/marker for accounting. guess what? they totally hired me again for this semester! finally, at least i have something to be busy about for the next 3 months or so. yay for that!

oh... i'll probably be doing another haul post next week since i got some new things here and there. oh the simple joys of freebies. *wink wink*

  12. I jus saw your pic in Chictopia and just couldn't wait to see you and your bf skating I knew it was going to be an animated chronicle and for sure it is. Love the pics you look like moving they are so funny, and the trousers was just a good option rather than the skirt becaus you don't look as u practice a lot this sport ; ) Anyway just lovely!!!!!

  13. Aw, I miss skating so much! I need to go to Bryant Park pond or some other overpriced skating rink in ny and at least get one round done! You guys are too cute with your self timer shots!
