"because it's fun being a girl!"

There's this new stint I've been into for about 3 months now, at least a couple of times per month, & I have to thank my fellow Tarot reader Jammi for the heads-up. It's G Mondays at exquisite NU.VO in Greenbelt 2 in the Makati central business district, a laidback yet fun just the same Ladies' Night with free-flowing sangria, awesome house music, & half-hour-long minimum Tarot readings from 10pm to 12mn (though sometimes, on a packed night, like a few days before my birthday, I'd be reading until 2am-3am, haha, yikes). Now just because it's Ladies Night, you can't have your men there with you. There's still an abundance of guys with their respective date & friends, & everybody's having fun, so far! After-dinner parties will never be the same with nights like this. Whoever said you can't ever party on a Monday?

So this is the only time ever that I ditch my usual girl-next-door tee-&-shorts getup. LBDs, here I go. But since I still can't manage to wear killer heels until further notice, I just go in dainty dressy flats & slip-ons (& oh, man, I need a wardrobe update; serves me right for living in designer flip-flops & sneakers for the longest time) so I can still show off my neat pedicure, haha.

Anyway, see you all there. (If not tonight, then most definitely next week! Jammi's a trusty reader, too, & she's so fun to talk to!) The place serves nice Italian & French food & they sure want to break the common notion now that they're only good for that. They have other regular events on other nights (with Manolet Dario, yo, squee) that you might want to check out.

it's easy being green!

Because the queen of organic, sustainable lifestyle among my roster of friends posted this idea for next weekend, & I'm kinda raring to go & check things out, as Mercury in Sagittarius is driving me crazy in my 3rd House this month, I might as well go, & maybe share the idea with you guys, especially if you're looking for a nice new cause or a fairly wholesome party, hehe. Besides, I miss The Collective, & if you haven't been there yet, I suggest you head on over. There's a whole buncha lovely artistic stuff to discover in that complex! :D

Schmoozing with like-minded people on a weekend sounds like fun.
& yeah, I do care about the environment & support fair trade.

Here's from the official website:
Every month people who work in the environmental field meet up at informal sessions known as Green Drinks.

We have a lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government, & business. Come along & you'll be made welcome. Just say,
"are you green?" & we will look after you & introduce you to whoever is there. It's a great way of catching up with people you know & also for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organising network.

These events are very simple and unstructured, but many people have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals & had moments of serendipity. It's a force for the good & we'd like to help it spread to other cities. Contact your local node to get the latest info about coming along.
Yup, sounds like a plan. ♥
Let's all hang out & throw caution to the wind! :P

Mystic Friday?

I am actually nervous & yet excited at the same time about this event that I signed up for later tonight. If it weren't for my Scorpio soul sister Aileen, I'd probably be staying at home recuperating further, after my long break from read-a-thons since my birthday a couple of months ago. But since my beloved fellow readers Francis & Jade will be there, too, YAY. Should be fun. I got the King of Pentacles, Page of Cups, & 6 of Wands from my Mythic Tarot deck, anyway, to assure myself that everything will be fine. So far, so good. I'm going pro bono because I can, hehe. Talk about paying it forward for a very momentous year. Thank you, Universe. ♥

I better unwind before dragging myself out to the East. Anyway, happy weekend, folks! Looks like holistic healing & introspection are indeed in order, while the Sun & New Moon (as well as Mercury & Venus, ugh) are in Scorpio. Oh, well.

(As for my next reading schedule, I can be available this Sunday night, November 7th, from 8pm-12mn; then on Tuesday, November 9th, from 4pm-10pm. I'll confirm later if I can make it on Monday night, November 8th, from 10pm-12mn; & on Thursday, 4pm-10pm. Leave a comment for clarifications, s'il vous plait.)
