    Hi! I'm Trixia and welcome to my slice of life. I'm not your average blogger, I'm a hybrid of multi-dimensional shoujo, a rare breed of legal loli and a unique original producer of ideas and inspiration. My path goes on the other side of the road which is less traveled, where thrill and excitement rests. This blog holds my inner thoughts, experiences, opinions and out-of-the-ordinary theories which I keep as a journal of my life's highlights.

    2019 Christmas Party Gathering

    Heya 'ol It's the most exciting month of the year and in this month, I am blest to celebrate Christmas party in my most
    unexpected location.

    It was still late October when the Party was planned and I already could not contain my excitement. The days went by
    so easily and I found myself preparing for that day. Our Team leader said we come in skirt and it so happens I bought two new
    pleated ones, the first one was glossy which I wore with Bayani Agbayani and this one would journey to a casino and fine dining at City of Dreams Hyatt Hotel. 

    Makeup

    By the way, I was looking at our regular 7-11 shelf before the event, I saw this Gold eye mask. I was thinking I will need it because I've been not catching snooze and glued to monitors. So I tried it out, the photos speaks for themselves, they are not edited. I can say is that it's convenient because I would usually cut up a whole mask and concentrate it on my eyes, this one is already shaped on my eyes and there's a lot of moisture than regular ones. I am just terrible placing it on my eyes, meaw said the other one is either higher, slanted or not covering and I just adjust it.

    Finally, I used makeup on my stash that has been kept for some time, it was just September when I last used them. I also bought a new bb + cc from ponds which I think would be good as a base. The makeup was great on photos I guess but after our ride of 5 hours at EDSA my face was caking on the forehead and cheeks. I may have combined something that wasn't friendly, so I might just change some of the makeup after they're used up, but as a warning to myself, I might have to try another combination. I used the same makeup with meeting Mr. Agbayani but since the event was short I wasn't able to see the effects for a long hour period. So it was used in SLR before. I can say they feel dry, quite heavy. The manager said that I should really change up makeup and my combination this time does not cut it for a long period of time use, so these are good for just simple shoots and with regular blending and re-application. It would also be terrible if you have bad flu-like me and you're trying to conceal it, you must avoid wiping your face. Plus, it was hard for me to hear my workmates because of sinus issues.

    Commute

     Our ride was fantastic, I did use the limited edition giveaway Intramuros card that was due to expire till 2020 and I knew I have to at least try it even for once. Since we come from the North, we get the chance to sit down at the further back of the train, we went down early at Gil Puyat as manager thinks this would be the most non-hassle way to get to MOA. At MOA we asked taxi driver to drive us and they charge us P100 non-metered, it was expected, but manager saw other casino shuttle buses passing by and had Idea where the location of the one for the City of Dreams, to our surprise it was just in-front of MOA entrance and the ride is for Free! All airconditioned well maintained comfy bus! It definitely saved us a lot!




    The ride was a short 15 mins to the casino and my heart jumped upon arriving. It was a similar feeling of the last time I was invited to another event like a kid jumping for excitement at bus would probably be embarrassing for me to post because I'm not really a kid anymore, haha

    The staff was assistive when Manager asked for directions and we passed through the glowy Christmas tree display, the golden inspired casino. I was already Imagining of putting on my Yumeko costume in. The buffet area was located on the further ride side and they have a reception seating area which was fully loaded with people around. They just let us in when the contact person of the reservation is mentioned, they also assisted where the table is but I was confused when they mentioned the one on the middle platform because I don't recognize workmates there. I thought I might be lost again, gladly with the assistance they confirmed that it really is the right table. I looked like a lost kid on that second :p




    The Cafe Buffet and location

    In long tables are aligned all fresh food with delectable appearance based on cuisines. Bread, meat, seafood, juice drinks, Filipino delicacies, Japanese delicacies and deserts. The place is huge and cater to hundreds of people with platforms  and comfy round seating, everyone seemed to enjoy the ambiance. At their powder room lined the huge glass jars of spices which I imagine Akira Hayama from Shokugeki no Soma would have in his collection. I urged meaw to do a smaller version of this as we both loved to cook. 




    Meeting the team

    We grabbed food right after arriving, I did not recognize our team leader at first sight and introduced myself to the team when they arrived one by one together with their husbands and kids (real ones, hehehe). It is sad though that some of our team mates failed to come, we all wish we were complete. We were all curious of what the unli buffet had to offer us, we first concentrated on how each cuisine tastes and had work conversations. They were all mellow and we joked and laughed of possible things in future and experiences, I found gems on my team and I wish I can be with them for a long time. I savoured every moment that was short, it was just 11:30 am to 3 pm but time flew so fast and we all need to separate ways. 



    Dining experience

    I've read some blogs and there are some that looked different from what we had on that day. I can say I enjoyed my second plate and I think these are the ones that stood out for me above the rest. I failed to get picture of the Roast beef in a hurry to eat.

    The second plate consists of

    Roast beef which will be asked how many servings and if raw, medium or rare cooked for you, Fried Mushrooms and Peking Duck



    The commute home was expectedly terrible, we decided to catch the bus home and went for a gruelling 5 hour ride on EDSA, but I couldn't get a nap, you know why? I kept on smiling remembering how fun the day went and the new memories that make me feel even younger. 

    I Thank you to my Superiors and Team for this experience. It was definitely the best gift you can give to a millenial like me, the precious memories of meeting and dining with the team.




    Miso soup on the left, shrimp, sushis and mussels

    Seafood tip:

    I ate the one served at the table, but what I did not know was we can ask them to cook it how you prefer, you'll need to proceed at the station where they cook for your preference, I was going to do it but I felt full already and could not go for second rounds after the noodles. Make sure to mix Miso soup carefully when you get one cause I only got on the surface and all the flavor was at the bottom. Yeah.

    Manager went rounds per rounds at the sushi, sashimi area because he said that's something that he cannot cook at home. I had sashimi too.


    Noodles



    Green Meringue and cakes

    Deserts:

    Were nice and sweet, but nothing too overwhelming. 

    Juice

    I love the Sago't Gulaman juice. It's nice and sweet, oh yeah. I'm all for sweetness, most probably that's my colds doing all the talking at that time. I admit I've spoiled it so I became worse when we went home.



    Group Photos



    At the end of the day:

    We loved the mini shoot we had by the corner and dressed up in our cozy sweater. Don't we all look lovely?

    Team mates super kawaii kids, they ran a lot chasing each other beside the seats which I wanna join hehehe




    This tree is located just at the entrance. There are kids and families who loved to take a cute picture.

    Before we head to Casino, I'm asked of my Legal age IDs which my companion chuckled, because it kept from going in. Gladly, I bought my IDs with me just you know this case happens, all the time.
