If you’re following me on Twitter, you would remember this:
I posted this photo on Instagram after I ran at the park. I took a snapshot of the Ayala Triangle Gardens’ light and sound show as I could already feel the spirit of Christmas. There was a big crowd at the show but I felt peaceful and happy. Calm. But that did not last…
When I got home, this welcomed me in the living room:
The chicest gift wrapper! Ever!
As some of you may know, a few days ago, I was invited by some of Manila’s loveliest housewives to view Andy Vasquez-Prada and Kaye Tinga‘s W/17 Home store.
During lunch, Mons, Kaye, and I had a conversation on how hot Gwyneth Paltrow is:
Me: “I love Gwyneth Paltrow! Did you know that she works out 2 hours a day, 6 days a week to achieve her body?”
Kaye and Mons: “Really! Kaya pala ang sexy n’ya!”
Me: “She is able to eat carbs and not gain weight because she works out everyday! Have you read her cookbook? I’ve tried her recipes!”
Kaye: “I have her book. My daughter and I lined-up for four hours to have our books autographed by her!”
Me: “WHAT??? GWYNETH SIGNED YOUR BOOK??? Do you know that I begged National Book Store if they could have my book signed as a birthday gift to me???”
Kaye: “Yeah! My daughter has a signed cookbook!”
Do you remember the birthday wish I posted on my previous blog? Read here: http://welovejenni.blogspot.com/2011/05/my-top-5-picks.html
Kaye’s gift to me:
OMG. OMG. OMG.
No… no… noooooooo…
*jumps for joy* *head bangs* *fist pumps* Cue music: “Paradise” by Coldplay
Thank you Kaye and Kerry for my signed copy of Gwyneth Paltrow’s ‘My Father’s Daughter” cookbook!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dearest Kaye and Kerry,
I am speechless but I will try to write how I feel.
You have no idea how happy you’ve made me! None! I am overjoyed to say the least! The exclamation points are a testament to how much I love and appreciate your thoughtful gift! From the bottom of my heart, thank you!!!
With Kaye’s permission, here’s what she wrote on the gift card:
According to Kaye, she told her daughter Kerry about me. It was Kerry’s idea to give me the extra signed copy of Gwyneth’s cookbook! Thanks Kerry! Your parents brought you up well! Haha! Thanks!!!
Now, I need to work on getting Jamie Oliver’s, Martha Stewart’s, and Oprah’s autographs!
Nothing is impossible!
