Ramon Magsaysay Hall's Varnish Fix

Jose and I went to Ramon Magsaysay Hall to do an ocular. It was Jose who booked the venue, that's why I had no idea how the place looks like. I thought there was an event when I saw the doors of the hall open. Apparently, they were doing the yearly varnish fix of the wooden walls and ceiling. (That explains the face masks on the men we passed by along the side of the building). The manong in charge was so nice to accommodate us and let us check on the place, the smell of the varnish filled up the place, you'll notice the hazy thing in the pictures I took.

The varnish fix is good news, it'll definitely give our venue a better look =)

I almost got "high" from inhaling the varnish fumes!

Pre Cana Seminar

Jose and I agreed that he'll pick me up at 6am so we won't be stressed out by the traffic and be early for our 8am to 12noon Pre-Cana Seminar at San Agustin. We'll just have breakfast at Intramuros. Unfortunately I forgot to ask him to wake me up. Being the insomniac that I am, I slept at 1am already and overslept. I only woke up when I heard my mobile ringing, it was Jose and it was already 5:50am! I think it was already 6:20am when we left. We got to Intramuros around 6:50am and waited for Jollibee to open by 7am for our breakfast. Initial plan was to hang-out at Starbucks, unfortunately they open at 9am. We headed to San Agustin after breakfast. Since we were 15minutes early, we decided to take some pictures of the church.

Adamson University teacher Ate Babes was our resource person for the seminar. She was very knowledgeable and very nice. She spoke about the sacraments and zoned in on marriage. I will not discuss the details of the seminar. It's one enriching seminar that all couples who are getting married should really go through.

The 8am-12noon seminar ended earlier, I think around past 11am. We decided to go to the parish office and inquire about some stuffs. Ms. Belen asked us if we want to have our Canonical interview already which was due this October, since we were already there we decided to have the interview 3 months ahead of schedule...

Introduction to the Search for the Wedding Rings

I checked out 3 stores in Robinson's Place Malate for wedding rings.

I went to Robinson's Place Malate yesterday right after my work related seminar. I had no agenda and honestly I really had no plans of going there. I just went around the mall, checked out shops which caught my fancy (mostly shoe and clothes store). While window shopping I passed by Goldenhills Jewelry and decided to inquire about the wedding ring (price, resizing, engraving and payment scheme). I didn't know it can be a little "addicting", I decided to check 2 more jewellers =). I went to Prima Diamond and My Diamond.

Jose and I agreed that our wedding band will be made of whitegold. My ring will have stones in it and none for his.

Here's what the 3 jewellers offered:

- 10% discount for cash transaction (will work on 20% discount subject to Head Office approval)
- credit card payment allowed
- allows 6 mos. deferred payment through BPI card
- 2 to 3 weeks for re-sizing/engraving
- rings can be customized
- lifetime warranty

- credit card payment allowed
- 2 to 3 weeks for re-sizing/engraving
- lifetime warranty

- 20% discount for cash transaction
- credit card payment allowed
- 2 to 3 weeks for re-sizing/engraving
- rings can be customized
- lifetime warranty

Among the 3 Jewellers; Prima Diamond offered the best price for the ring I liked (18k white gold, with 7 pointer diamonds). I honestly didn't have a picture in my mind as to how I want my wedding ring to look like until I saw that ring.

Uhmm...since this is only the introduction to the search for the ring, I'm guessing I'll have a better picture in my mind soon. =)
