Weekend Hodgepodge

It was another eventful weekend, a combination of the bad and the very good. First off, the bad. I was on my way to MoA on Saturday for the yukata workshop hosted by magnetic_rose (as part of Cosplay Mania X). I took the MRT to Ayala, then got down to catch a bus to MoA. […]

Birthday celebration in Tagaytay

It’s been a while since my mom and her siblings got together. For my mom’s birthday, Tita Ruth took us to Tagaytay. We spent the night at Tagaytay Higlands, then went around exploring various shops, restaurants and places. Family food tripAs always, it seemed like one big family food trip. We had lunch at Akasaka, […]

Another lazy Saturday

Wow. I’m on a roll. Yet another post for the week. It feels good to be able to get back into the groove of writing and blogging. Five years ago I used to write blog posts at least twice a day. Now, barely one a week, so this is certainly a good thing. Met up […]

Drumming the night away: Wadaiko Yamato

I remember hearing about Yamato: Drums of Japan from my cousin Miel a few years back. Japan Foundation Manila invited them for a performance and she was able to attend. I’ve been wanting to see them but I somehow keep missing the schedule and ending up hearing about it after the event. Thankfully, through the […]

Family Cookout: June edition

On the second Sunday of June, we once again gathered for a food trip. This time, we decided to try our hand at cooking our own dishes. The fare’s pretty simple. Tita Rose prepared pancit, Todel did cream dori. I made some pesto for pasta while Miel, Lee and Dan made grilled burgers and liempo. […]

Candelaria weekend 2: Family

A week after my Zambales trip with my friends, I was back. This time, I was with my family for a long overdue trip. Very early Saturday morning, Todel, Tarose, Miel & I left Manila for the five hour trip to Zambales. We had breakfast at Delifrance along NLEX, and had a pretty much uneventful […]

Labor day events

My Labor Day events anyway. Fristine told us about this food tour event at Bonifacio High Street happening last Saturday. I dragged Presea and Ching along, but it turns out we didn’t make the cut-off even if we were early for the sign-up. Pfft. Although I was disappointed, I didn’t feel it much of a […]

From Friday to Friday

I’ve been really lazy with blogging in past year or two. When I first started I could write about three entries a day. Now, I’m lucky if I would get in the mood to write one a week. I’ve got tons of drafts, but hardly get them posted. I must change that. For now, I’m […]

Semana Santa

Holy Week has always been a big deal for me growing up. Every year, it signaled the start of vacation. It was when tons of relatives would make the trip home from wherever they are and spend a week or two here. My cousins, both first and second degree ones, would be here and we’d […]
