27FOR27: A Playlist

Before my birth month comes to a close, here's 27 songs I've picked that I've always listened to the past year. I compiled them into this nifty playlist, which basically tells the story of the past 365 days of my life. There are some tracks that've made a big impact, some remind me…

Soul Pancake Sunday: How Can Someone Get To Know You?

For this week's Soul Pancake activity: Write five steps someone could follow to get to know the real you.

If ever our worlds would connect IRL, let me just tell you that I'm awfully quiet. So, say, for some reason you want to ~*~get to know~*~ me, here's the lowdown:
1. If there's …

A Sort of Life Update

I've gotten so bad at this. I remember back then, I would painstakingly write down in my journal every little detail that happened during the day. Well, I guess, this being such an exposed space in the world wide web makes me not do it. But then again, I've been in kind of a slump and I'…

Now Playing: Bob Dylan - Abandoned Love

My patron saint is a fighting with a ghost / He's always off somewhere when I need him most / That the Spanish moon is rising on the hill / But my heart is a tellin' me I love you still

I march in the parade of liberty / But as long as I love you I'm not free / How long must I suffer s…

Rustic Mornings By Isabelo

I can't remember how I first knew about Rustic Mornings. But when I first stumbled upon their website and saw the entirety of the restaurant through pictures, I thought it was a breakfast haven. I showed the website to some of my friends from work and we decided to visit the place one Saturday morning.

Those bicycles are for sale
It was a good thing my friends were familiar with the area where Rustic Mornings was located. It was situated in a narrow, almost hidden street across the Our Lady of Abandoned Church. When we got there, the place was already filled but luckily, we were able to have a spot after a few minutes.

Birthday Wishlist

We can never be too old to make a wishlist. I usually make a birthday and Christmas wishlist every year eventhough nobody really takes note of it. Haha. 
Here's my 2013 list:

1. Watch a Peso Movement/Japsuki gig. I've been a fan of Japs Sergio since his DDC days and I saw recently in Faceb…

How I Really Feel About My 27th Birthday

Next week, I will be turning the big 2-7. For most of my life, I've not really made a big deal about my birthday celebrations. I remember having a 7th birthday party but as I grew older, I realized parties and people are not my thing. I never had a grand 18th birthday celebration (and I don…

Ice cream and cigarettes

For a few days now, I have been feeling nothing but ecstatic. I really don't know if I have gone crazy over the weekend because I know for a fact that whatever it is I'm feeling right now is not normal. Everything is way too magnified right now.

I had a long night sleep yesterday. Last week…
