Between Lenses 04: Nostalgia

My favorite blog link-up is back after a brief hiatus! The last time I participated was November last year. I kept missing the prompts because I was swamped with work and I temporarily gave up on blogging. Coincidentally, last December, Trina of Of Trees and Hues went on a blogging break for perso…

21 Years Later: Reality Bites

As tribute to my favorite aged coming-of-age film of the '90s, Reality Bites (that turned 21 this year), I dedicated 100 minutes of my life (again) last week to reacquaint myself with the pains of realizing that I was not somebody (or anybody, for that matter) by the age of 23 or riding my own…

Tomahawk Chops and Grill Kapitolyo

A stressful and energy-draining day at work usually makes me crave for something crunchy or meaty to munch on. And it being a Saturday, I wanted to finish the work week with what I've been craving for a while now: chops. Grilled, tender, flavorful and juicy chops.
I suggested to my friends we …

Marion Fayolle

I saw a handful of Marion Fayolle's works in Juxtapoz's Facebook page that instantly captured my attention. Juxtapoz is a monthly magazine that promotes contemporary artists and innovative art.
The illustration on the left is part of Marion Fayolle's first book titled In Pieces. This a…

In Squares: Exploring Bohol

Second travel for the year was to Bohol during the first week of February with two of my friends from work, Charm and Farn! Why Bohol? Personally, it was the Chocolate Hills. I know Bohol is more than just that but after the earthquake that destroyed some parts of it, you know, I just had to see i…

Cafe Travel

Late last month, Ian asked me to join him visit this new cafe along Taft. From the name of the place, of course, I assumed it would have a travel theme to it -- luggage, backpacks, globes, geographical pieces, maps, the works, you know? But I was a bit surprised when we got there that it was a Kor…

Just Another: A Playlist

I've recently just discovered Spotify (boo me) and I absolutely adore it. I've stuck with 8tracks for the longest time now, just randomly listening to playlists by other people and making my own there, too, but Spotify's just super convenient and there's just so much variety. I'…

Incantatus Festival 2015

Looking for something to do, perhaps retreat to nature for a little werisfesteria and great music? You might want to check out the Incantatus Festival 2015!

"A mystical jungle amidst the ocean and mountains awaits those who are worthy to marvel at its beauty."
Incantatus is an intimate …

Favorite Things #29

One. MONO by Erin Emocling. When Erin posted on Facebook that she published a photo zine of a her black and white photos in 35mm, I eagerly signed up for a copy. She has some very interesting shots which you can check out in MONO's Facebook page. You can also go to her website for more of her b…

Getting To Know You & Me: 01

With both blog link-ups I'm participating in currently in hiatus (see my side bar), I've been looking for a while now for new blog prompts and link-ups to follow and join. I discovered Camie Juan's Getting To Know You & Me post and decided to join (something to break the monotony o…
