Green Bean Organic Coffee Company at Hotel H2O, Manila Ocean Park

It was my first time hearing about Green Bean Organic Coffee Company when Kenny introduced me to it during our visit at Manila Ocean Park. I was in the dark how organic coffee was different from my usual brewed or 3-in-1 and what the hype was all about. It turns out that many of us coffee drinkers have been missing out on the good that is organic coffee all along.

Manila Ocean Park’s Liquid Pool & Lounge (Photos by Mac Vasquez)

Another feature of Manila Ocean Park we got to enjoy during our visit last Thursday was the Liquid Pool and Lounge. The Liquid Pool and Lounge boasts of an outdoor jacuzzi and an indoor swimming pool perfect for summer! The pools are not very big, but it’s spacious enough to enjoy a good swim in. Kianna, Brent, and I spent a lot of time cooling ourselves off in the pool.

Unforgettable Mermaid Swimming Experience at Manila Ocean Park

Unforgettable Mermaid Swimming Experience at Manila Ocean Park

I am speaking for many girls when I say this: a lot of us want to experience becoming a mermaid. With the childhood influences of Disney’s The Little Mermaid, and the more recent mermaid-inspired TV series airing on TV prime time, just dressing up as a mermaid is already half the dream. Learning to glide on water with a tail in place of legs is the other half.

When I was given the opportunity to try out the Mermaid Swimming Classes a...

 First Week at Work

Going places with my new pair of shoes. And no one can stop me.

…and things could not be better.

I’ve been quite busy these past few days adjusting to life and work in my new workplace. I am, however, proud to announce that I’m done with my first week at my new job, and I can easily imagine staying here for a long time. Admittedly, I feel sad that I don’t get to attend events as often as I do in the past...

Review: Odds Cafe & Nail Spa at Tomas Morato cor. Scout Castor, Quezon City

I stumbled upon this Victorian-inspired coffee shop on a friend’s wall, and I couldn’t resist visiting the place. It seems to qualify for my list of happy places, and there were so many elements that got me wanting to have a feel of the place for myself. So one fine Sunday afternoon, I, with three of my blogger friends, went to have an enjoyable afternoon at Odds Cafe & Nail Spa.

 Pacquiao vs. Bradley 2: Vindication

Manny Pacquiao-signed pair of boxing gloves

I wasn’t exempted from the number of people who anticipated the Pacquiao-Bradley bout with intense excitement. Maybe I don’t know the technical shiznit of boxing, but I cannot stress this enough: I’m a huge fan of Pacquiao. I love his tenacity and his strength. I love his humility and faith. But most of all, I love the feeling that he makes possible: a feeling of unity among an incredible number of people every time he steps into the boxing ring...
