Wednesday, The New Friday?

Is it really true, that Wednesday is now the new Friday? Hmmm, Friday is still different because it's weekend the next day, no pressure of going to work.  But people would love to go out on a Wednesday night because it is the middle of the week and I guess we just want to relax and break the very stiff 5-work days.  
My friends and I went to the 2 bar-restos @ City Golf in Ortigas.  First we had dinner at Citizen Pub, they have good pizza and then we transferred to this new restaurant called Alphonse to celebrate my friend Val's birthday.  
What I wore that night is the top I got from Zara (which I so love the first time I laid my eyes on it!). I love the scarf print on the shirt and the color is just gorgeous!  I also wore my new white suede brogues I got from Topshop.
