Blast from the past

Last February 28, our company had it's Annual Staff Party and the theme is Retro. 

I was torn between 60's and 70's era. I opted for 60's era since I am chosen to be one of the hosts for that event.

Awards and recognition were given to loyal and hardworking colleagues. We call it Star Awards. Star Awards as we believe that each employee is a star on his/her own right. And it was their time to shine. Some of my friends were nominated and some won an award.

We had intermission number and dance showdown between Kitchen Team and F&B Team. There was raffle prizes which mostly are gadgets.


Groovy invite

Restaurant Review - Brasserie Centre-Ville

One evening, my BFF & I decided to dine out. So we changed to our normal casual attire which is shirt & jeans. She asked me to bring my Entertainment voucher just in case. We were in the taxi then she said, "Let's check-out Renaissance Hotel". I was a bit hesitant coz we're under dress but what the heck. 

So, our main purpose that night is to eat. No wonder, we ended up going to Brasserie Centre-Ville. 

It was a quiet night. So in spite our being "under dress" we decided to have our dinner there.

The place is very classy. The table set up is simple and clean. 

I love that they chose Gerbera, one of my fave flowers

Weekend in DXB

My BFF walked into my office and said "Let's go to Dubai for weekend." And just like that I filed my short leave. I was a bit hesitant coz first, my department is under staff and second, I just deposited my money to my Philippines bank account. Anywho, we were able to travel to Dubai last January 24-27 with a lot of drama on the side. (I might share it to you next time).

We boarded United Airline and arrive Dubai very early morning of January 25. I have to say, we were surprise as the weather is not as cold in Doha. We were sweating when we exit the airport.

We checked in Holiday Inn Express Airport using Maribel's priority club points. (woot-woot). We were assigned in room 26. We are a bit shocked as there were no amenities in the room. Yes, yes, yes... this is our first time to check-in a Holiday Inn Express. We don't know what to expect. Being the girl scout that I am, I have my own toiletries. hihihi...

Impulsive me!

I was with my best friend in the mall awhile ago. She needed to buy some stuff so we went to this outlet. We went to the perfume/lotion section and I was surrounded by Victoria's Secret fragrance mists. Being a sucker for anything that smells good, I took my top 3 choice. I asked my best friend which one (highlight on one) to buy as I can't make up my mind. I even asked her if I need to buy since I have quite a number of perfume in our flat. (Click here for my fragrance post). She said "Buy it, you don't normally buy stuff for yourself." wahhhh...

I end up buying all three T_T

Note to self: Do not bring my best friend to go shopping, I spend more than my budget.

My Fragrance Collection

Just wanna share with you my favorite fragrances. Some of these perfumes were gifts from my friends.

Winter Must Haves

Its really chilly here in Qatar. Temperature dropped to 13 degrees. So decided to share with you my Winter Essentials or Must Haves.

  1. Lip Balm - It is very important that I have lip balm next to me or in my bag coz I really get chappy and dry lips.
  2. Moisturizer - My skin tends to be "flaky" in my nose area so I need to insure that I moisturize always.
  3. Lotion - Since weather is really cold, I need to make sure that my skin is hydrated.
  4. Scarves - Its not only fashionable but it keeps me warm.
  5. Sweater/Jacket - Its time to bring out the jacket. Forget about looking bulky... sweater is my go-to get-up during winter.
  6. Blankie - I need my warm blankie especially at night.
  7. Coffee - I love sipping a warm cup of coffee especially during cold season.
  8. Topical cream - As i mention earlier, my nose area tends to flake and dry so I get this allergy around my nose and upper lip area that's why I need to bring my cream to treat my allergy.
What are your Winter must haves?

xoxo,
Katey
