    Patricia

    Majority of my friends call me Trish, I guess you could call me that too. I'm a transcriptions editor with a really messed up body clock and never ending affinity for films, food and written words. I like street art, sweets, neutrals and monochromes, sushi, window seats, golf carts and lazy weekends.

    Some of the things that completely preoccupy me are my fixation with the now defunct The Civil Wars and their beautiful art of sadness, Oh Sehun, sleeping, CSS and HTML, @iameden, and those damn hypnotizing Tasty videos. Top country in my travel bucketlist? Iceland. But the one that will always have my heart? Hong Kong.


    When it comes to maintaining body hair growth, I'm pretty much an old school type of girl. I resort to shaving when it comes to my underarms and shaping my eyebrows, I don't shave my legs because I never really saw it as a necessity. I have fine hair on my legs so it's okay with me. This is a personal choice though, if you're confident and comfortable going au naturel, that's perfectly fine as well. :)

    Nowadays, there's a lot of choices when it comes to hair removal: waxing, threading, creams, IPL, etc. I've been really curious about IPL (intense pulsed light) since it warrants basically hair-free and smoother underarms (or whichever part of your body you want to be hair-free).

    I've been reading about Wink Laser Studio last year and was really curious with their Revlite Laser Therapy but never availed of their services because of lack of time and resources. But I've always been keeping tabs with their latest technology for hair removal and correction of underarm skin tone.

    Earlier this month, Wink was generous enough to give away free sessions of their newest offering, the Gentlemax Pro Laser. And because I'm not one to shy away from freebies, I joined, and yes, luckily won as well!

    Inactivity here in my blog doesn't always equate to idleness in real life. In fact, the past weeks, I've been to a handful of food joints with my friends! And no matter how I emphasize in my About that 'blogging is something that I'll never get tired of doing,' there are weeks that my plate gets so filled (no pun intended), I have no choice but to temporarily step back from it.

    From some rarely noticed to the much hyped, here are a few restaurants that made an impression on me the past month:

    1. The Rabbit Hole MNL



    A new quaint place we discovered along Malugay. I saw something about Rabbit Hole in Instagram, I think, and was really intrigued because of the Alice in Wonderland reference. Coincidentally, I was meeting up with a bunch of my college friends in Makati on a Friday night, so I suggested the place. The place was cute and cozy! Friends who had the rice meals said the food was okay and filling. I ordered the intricate and pretty ube cake (forgot the name) and found it too beautiful to eat. Haha. It was fine as well, hoping for more ube flavor though. Another college friend loved the carrot cake because of how moist it was, but IDK why I found it salty. The cream cheese maybe? All their pastries were at 50% off that night! What a steal! Overall, not so bad. Might drop by again in the future since they're still in their soft opening when we visited.

    At this very moment, I am typing my 15th attempt to properly start this post. It's been half a month of radio silence in this blog; and though there's a lot of things I could write about, social media's been toxic the past weeks (especially since the election ugh) and it's such a pain to go through my Facebook News Feed and Twitter timeline -- online in general -- so imagine what more drumming up a timely blog post. Add the fact that commute to and from work (Ortigas - Cavite) takes a chunk of my time everyday, I rarely have the energy to post something worth reading. (I have too many excuses, I know.)

    Enough of all that. The bright side of things: May, my most challenging month at work so far, is over, and yes, crazy as it sounds, we're halfway through the year.

    Throughout the past month, I've participated in our company's Community Impact Month, a series of volunteering efforts that span the months of May and June. I've been to two events and I've got to say it's a different way of spending my Saturdays! We've been to Quezon to be with Bahay Tuluyan, to La Mesa Eco Park to learn about tree tagging, and this coming Saturday will be an afternoon of mural painting for me at Arroceros in Manila! Yay!
