Kylie Was Right: My 2016 Roundup

You think by the time you reach your 20s, you've got most things figured out. By the time you're 30, you think you're this beacon of knowledge that has so much life lessons to impart. Nope, even though you're a full grown adult who does adult things like be a great citizen who pays…

Weekend Movies #15

I have been on vacation the past week and six days into it, I've done nothing but watch movies. Not proud of the fact that I've been a complete couch potato (got up and left the house once to see Die Beautiful) but I'm quite pleased that I was able to tick off a couple of films off my …

I Lose Sleep To Binge-Watch These Shows #2

The last time I had a handful of shows I eagerly watched was late last year and I actually made this blog post about it. Okay, let me say this first and foremost: binge-watching at excessive levels is really bad for your health. I have no clue if there's a way to make this sedentary activity h…

There's A Giraffe

Sometimes, it feels like 2014.

It would be such an easy feat to pour everything here when it gets too in my face (or when my head's way, way, wayyy above the clouds) but I can't, I won't and I shouldn't. I once in a while go to seek the great perhaps, as that book says, and I surpr…

Zomato x ABS-CBN Hunger Games: Marikina & Antipolo (Day 3)

Around the last week of September, after attending the Zomato #FoodieMeetup at Single Origin, Louie also asked us if we're interested in participating in the upcoming third leg of their Hunger Games, which features restaurants in Antipolo and Marikina. I've attended one of their food crawl…

Baguio 2016: Where To Eat

This blogging break, looks to me, is a spell that always comes before the year ends. Last year, I wasn't able to put up anything here for the entire December, and this year, the drive to blog was non-existent last November. But what's different now is that I'm not feeling guilty at all…

Where To Next Planner 2017: Lessons On The Road

When the year approaches its last quarter, resolutions come up and some form of organization is warranted as the new year is on the horizon. Some people depend on their smartphones and apps for their management needs but I have always preferred something tangible. My affinity for stationery came a…

Playlist: Strange Feelings, Weird Terror

Still procrastinating tiptoeing around all the backlog I'm supposed to put here. (I still owe Zomato a write-up, a listicle of new places foodies must try in Baguio, another cafe restaurant we went to in Cavite and lastly, something about a planner!) So after a few hours of fiddling, editing p…

Buku-Buku Kafe Imus, Cavite

Now that I'm done with the realizations and reflections part of turning 3-0, let me overshare once again how I celebrated my birthday, which of course involved... eating. ヘ(^_^ヘ) First, I think I've mentioned this on a previous entry, I had lunch with my friends from work at Locavore in Fo…

Things I’m Happy I Tried and Learned Before 30

My previous birthday posts are always in the form of wishlists, things I must absolutely do in this life time, celebrations (mainly food trips haha), and the different lessons life has taught me, with me usually looking back at the challenging parts of my existence. For this year (and since I like…

Favorite Things #35

My friends really do know how to spoil me rotten as I've got some amazing stuff for my 30th birthday. I must have done a deal of good things in my previous life because I got showered with treats when I turned the big 3-0. Excitement for one's birthday is inversely proportional with age (a…
