The City Picks Food Tour eventually led us to The Clubhouse, Gaucho, and The Magnolia Ice Cream Flavor House.

The Clubhouse opened its doors to foodies in December of 2012, and has gained following for the various cuisines they offered, with their fare collectively called “Modern Comfort Food”. If that didn’t sound appealing to you, then I don’t know what would...

20 Ways You Can Be The Best Friend Ever

I have tons of best friends. No one ever said you can have only one best friend, so I made lots. Initially, when I learned I had to complete a list of 20 ways you can be the best friend ever, I had thought it was a task too big for me. Cmon, twenty?? It was a great thing that my photos and blog did not run short of reminders on how I, or my friends, have been the bestest friends ever.

So this list is based on my stories with my best buds over the years...

Robinsons Magnolia Residences City Food Picks Part 1

Back in college and during my first two years at work, I had the chance to enjoy living in a condominium located right next to a Robinsons mall. Needless to say, I spent so much time at the mall than in the comforts of my condo. The location was so convenient, that even when I just needed one grocery item, I just crossed the street and spent hours window shopping, and only after that did I buy what I needed...

X-MEN: Days of Future Past

X-Men Evolution Rogue

X-Men Evolution Rogue-Inspired FOTD / OOTD

Hello~ I tried my best to recreate Rogue’s ensemble in X-Men Evolution (yup, the animation) using items in my wardrobe. Apologies for the inaccuracy. I wasn’t trying to cosplay her anyway :p I did try to paint my hair white, but my hair spray wasn’t as cooperative as I wanted it to be. :3

Rogue in X-Men Evolution is different from the character Anna Paquin portrays in the movies...

Clarity Comes at a Price

I’ve recently discovered a state of clarity that I’ve been in search of for years. It was only when I hit rock bottom that it came to me, and I’ve been hitting hard since two, three weeks ago. I have been dealing with it since.

This weekend, I had to miss our company’s outing/sportsfest because, like I told my boss, I wanted to sleep in. It was the truth. I’ve been feeling exhausted for weeks now, not because of work, but because it’s taking all of my strength to show up at work and be okay...

Zetsuen no Tempest / The Civilization Blaster – Kusaribe Hakaze Cosplay

This was the mini-shoot I was talking about in my last entry. I cosplayed Kusaribe Hakaze from Zetsuen no Tempest, one of my favorite animes in 2012. Hakaze, however, was one of my least favorite characters in the series. I’ve always loved Aika better. But seeing as how cosplaying Hakaze would suit the location best (over any other anime characters I am familiar with), I decided to push through cosplaying her.

Summer Outing at Burot Beach, Batangas (Calatagan, Batangas)

At Burot Beach, Calatagan Batangas

I finally get to write about my trip to Burot Beach at Calatagan, Batangas with the BDT Gang some two weeks ago. It was a much needed trip and get together with the people I’ve known for almost nine years now. This also happens to be our first beach trip together, so it’s pretty special for me.

We left Las Piñas at four in the morning, with everyone in need of sleep...
