We arrived in Ortigas a little bit ahead of the designated check-in time so we proceeded to Megamall only to find out Forever21 was closed. We went back to the hotel and enjoyed complementary treats at the Serendipity Lounge.

Looking festive on New Year's day!
I have to admit, the bustier/harem pants combo sprung out of my impluse. I liked the trend so much I didn't want to get left behind. I just couldn't muster the courage to wear it out before. But it's new year's day so what the heck!
Podium is right across the street so we went out by nightfall. My parents generously gave me Topshop GC's for Christmas which I was contemplating on saving until at least I pay a visit to their Greenbelt branch. A few weeks back, they restocked the Wisteria Wedge in blush and the last pair was a tad smaller than my size but fits me just as well. I was specifically saving my GCs for that. But all hope vanished as I failed to resist shopping for new clothes. I guess I should have brought an extra ounce of defiance.
At Red Mango
Mom strategically enclosed the GCs in a Toys 'R Us envelope and I don't know why. I reached the Anne Heche- level of confusion when she handed me the envelope. My face lit up as soon as I opened it!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR, indeed ;)
