Getting stuck at Chibo Okonomiyaki and loving it

  It’s always a great idea to spend the time dining at a restaurant inside a mall while waiting for the heavy downpour of rain to stop outside the walls. Why not, especially if the place is located inside the posh S Maison retail complex in Conrad, the newest hotel that opened at the Mall of… Continue reading Getting stuck at Chibo Okonomiyaki and loving it

Quite big for me—first time I experienced this. I had to go to and from hospital… Continue reading Staycation at Cebu

Lakbay Baguio: Café in the Sky and Sitio “La Presa”

I celebrated Father’s Day (sans my Dad who passed away in 2005) in Baguio’s famed Café in the Sky and Sitio La Presa. Actually it’s not part of Baguio City, but of Mt. Santo Tomas, in Tuba, Benguet. Living here for a few days, away from a hectic schedule and city buzz, makes one feel… Continue reading Lakbay Baguio: Café in the Sky and Sitio “La Presa”

Three Days of Trekking in Baler

My legs were burning by the time we were about to board the bus back to Manila. I didn’t know that trekking activities would dominate the most part of our 4-day itinerary in Baler, Aurora. I’ve heard it’s a perfect exercise but I really don’t like climbing. Had I known it, I would have prepped myself first but… Continue reading Three Days of Trekking in Baler

Naturactor Silky Loose Powder & Happy Skin Hydrating Powder Foundation (Make-up Review)

I know nothing lasts forever but I just absolutely hate it if my make up doesn’t last even for one hour, especially in this kind of hot, hot weather. No make it, 30 minutes. I’m totally freaked out… I’ve been on the lookout for a face powder I can trust to give me back that… Continue reading Naturactor Silky Loose Powder & Happy Skin Hydrating Powder Foundation (Make-up Review)

Relive the past at Sulyap Gallery Café & Restaurant in San Pablo, Laguna

I’ve dined in a number of traditional Filipino restaurants but there’s one that had me enchanted. The feeling was ethereal, as if I was transported back to the Spanish era. The day I came here (with a group of friends last March) I thought I time traveled. At the back of my mind I kept… Continue reading Relive the past at Sulyap Gallery Café & Restaurant in San Pablo, Laguna

Review: THEFACESHOP’s Chia Seed Fresh Cleansing Foam

I’ve been wanting to blog about this product for some time, but I delayed doing so after I finished almost half of the tube. I bought The FaceShop’s Chia Seed Fresh Cleansing Foam late last year, and I couldn’t believe that I still have a little left, and it’s already May 2016! My take on… Continue reading Review: THEFACESHOP’s Chia Seed Fresh Cleansing Foam

Theo and Philo

There’s a bunch of gourmet chocs that got me enthralled lately. I’ve been very, very busy lately (toxic work actually) and the only quality “me” time I can get (besides a quiet time) is when I munch on these artisan chocolate bars by Theo and Philo. They have one of the nicest, addictive taste that… Continue reading Theo and Philo

Lakbay Baguio: Mines View Park in a hurry

I can vividly recall my earliest visit to Baguio’s famed Mines View Park. I was a young girl back then, around 8 or 9 years old, standing at the side of the ridge watching some tourists throw loose change down the ravine where young agile children are waiting with cups they use to catch loose… Continue reading Lakbay Baguio: Mines View Park in a hurry

Brunch at Café By the Ruins

I sure miss those days when going up to Baguio City was a breeze, and you always look forward to an exhilarating experience. That was, I think, during the 1980s. The last time I went up here was around 2005 or 2006 and the city was celebrating Panagbenga Festival. It was so crowded I didn’t… Continue reading Brunch at Café By the Ruins
