Merlion Land Loves Me: Singapore Rain and the Flower Dome

I mentioned in my previous post that I went to Singapore a few months ago. While it was my second time going there, this trip was the first time that I actually went all-out touristy. I prepared a long list of my must-go-to places and one of them was Gardens by the Bay. Thankfully, my dear friend Darryl offered accompanying us! And honestly I’d say it was one of the highlights of my vacation. Here’s why. Continue reading


Makan! My (Second) Singaporean Food Experience

My friends and I went to Singapore for almost a week-long vacation last July, thus this is another one of my many overdue posts. It’s my second time going to this country and it still never fails to make me fall in love with it. Efficient, beautiful, and the people—especially my Singaporean friends—are definitely some of the sweetest on earth. Continue reading

Nyan Heaven: Cat Cafe Manila

A really long time ago, way before I (almost) forgot about the existence of my personal blog, my friends and I went to Cat Cafe Manila. It was my heaven.

You see, I love cats. I love every kind of cats. I just want to hug all of them but I can’t hug every cat (sing along with me here). So when we went to Cat Cafe Manila, to say that I was excited was definitely an understatement. I took a few photos because I was too busy cuddling and playing with (and waking up) the cats. Continue reading

World Street Food Congress 2016 in Manila

After a slightly not-so-nice week, workmates and I decided to take a break and we went to join a burgis food party right in the middle of Bonifacio Global City—the World Street Food Congress 2016! So, what is the World Street Food Congress 2016? According to their official website, it is “a feasting festival held over five days (20-24 April) featuring 24 Street Food Masters from up to 10 countries.” And yes, it is indeed a food festival. Lots of delicious stuff to munch on (street food, of course), plus a lovely crowd, free live band music, and overly expensive bottled waters. Continue reading

From Twelve to Forever: #4YearsWithEXO

I can’t believe it’s been four years since I started stanning probably one of the biggest but also most controversial band in recent K-Pop history—EXO. People outside the fandom, or the K-Pop community in general, may never understand but being an EXO-L has been a difficult and emotional journey. We—EXO and EXO-Ls—got our amazing highs in 2012 and 2013 then a sudden blow in 2014 then we rose up to be at the top once again.  Continue reading

BEAST First Fanmeeting in Manila 2016

So as part of the press people, I went to the first ever BEAST Fanmeeting in Manila at the Smart Araneta Coliseum last March 19, 2016. I’m not much of a fan of BEAST although I know them. It was kind of nostalgic to see them, though. I think the last time they went here was like five (or six) years ago! I hardly know the songs they performed but I’d say the fanmeeting was enjoyable. The fans seemed to have had a lot of fun even if it was kind of short. Continue reading

The North Tweak: Rock & Seoul Bibimbap

If there is one Korean food everyone must try other than kimchi, it is bibimbap. If you’re not familiar with it, a bibimbap is a rice bowl meal which literally means “mixed rice.” Why? Because you literally mix everything before you munch on it. So anyway, a few months ago, news came to me and my friends that a new bibimbap place opened at SM North EDSA called “Rock & Seoul” and so, as Korean food fans, we all tried it. Continue reading

Ortigas Homie: Cafe Flafe

There’s this cafe in Ortigas that  I kind of like the vibe: Cafe Flafe. I went here in January (there was still some sort of Christmas-y feel) right after I came back to Manila from Tarlac. It was small but still homey and really comfortable. And hey, the food here was amazing! We tried mandu soup and bingsoo and we were really satisfied. Check out the photos below. Continue reading

Monasterio de Tarlac

Here’s the second batch of the late upload. So last January, as you can see from the previous post, we went to Tarlac and we were brought to this cool monastery up in the mountains. I never knew there was a monastery in that part of the province so it was quite an amusement for me. The view was amazing and there’s this huge statue of Jesus Christ right at the edge of a cliff. It was great. Continue reading
