Have a feast on home-cooked Thai food without stepping out of the country.

When I was still in college, I always passed by this resto since it was near my dormitory. I have tried every carinderia and restaurants in our street and the streets nearby. But these one, I never attempted to check out. Maybe that time, I only have a penchant for Filipino food.

So, like a ghost that haunts, I came back again into this place to appease whatever desire I once have.

Since our Singapore trip , we’re planning to take a vacation again, but this time, with the whole family.

I might as well say that our dearest bunso, Joy, is turning 18 so she has decided that she wanted to celebrate it in a different way rather than throwing a traditional party for debutantes. But, due to a lot of unforeseen circumstances, my dad, Ish and her family wasn’t able to join us.

Bottom line, an all-girls trip was set. With my mom and two sisters, we weaved the busiest city in the world, Hongkong!

Ni Hao!

We started the day by saying our prayers and for thanking God for another year of my life. I chose St. Teresa church located in Kampong Bahru road since it is the closest in our vicinity. The church is like in its purest form. The walls are painted white which perfectly blends in its Romanesque-renaissance architecture.

With enough courage and money, I booked a round trip ticket to my chosen country two weeks before the flight and boy, was it so expensive! Back then, i shrugged it off since my thirst to see the world is way too high to quench.

More than offering lovely cakes, this cozy restaurant has been a good spot for breakfast too.

The Academic Oval in UP Diliman has been a common ground for running, biking and even walking aficionados of all ages. It covers the distance of 2.2 kilometers and has been lined up with lush of acacia trees as old as the university itself. Perfect for families who are taking a leisurely stroll or for those health conscious devotees who were taking morning and afternoon runs.

Just like me. And my sisters.

On pixie and a thing called bravery

Either do it or you can’t. It takes a huge amount of courage to finally chase a dream.

Getting a pixie cut has been a longtime fantasy. Especially for me who have curly hair ever since I was a kid. Long, wavy, black curls that I usually tie in a bun when it’s hot but most of the time, just because it’s unmanageable. I grew up liking it anyway. But soon, I get curious of getting a rebond and cutting it really, really short.

It’s Father’s day.
