Food for Thought

I’m just going to put this out here. Ang hirap maging IG-worthy.

I really don’t know how fashion bloggers do it. It’s like they wake up with the perfect hair and flawless FOTDs, have tons of cool clothes (oh wait, they do), and just make it seem so effortless. I try, but it takes so much effort — snapping tens of hundreds of pictures before finding one that will make it to the grid...

MUST-SEE: Marvel’s Doctor Strange in Cinemas Starting October 26

Doctor Strange Philippines Cinemas October 26

Yesterday, I was invited to an Advanced VIP and Press Preview of Marvel’s Doctor Strange, and the experience was surreal. I don’t have any background knowledge on Doctor Strange, except from what the trailers reveal, but one thing’s for sure: you’re going to enjoy the movie even if you’re not a comic book geek! Check out the three reasons why I liked the movie after the trailer:

  1. The cast has all my favorite people. Mads Mikkelsen, Rachel McAdams, and Benedict Cumberbatch topbill Doctor Stran...

REVIEW: Annam Noodle Bar (Eastwood, Quezon City)

The truth is, I’m not a fan of Vietnamese fare. I tried Pho Hoa four years ago and I have never looked back since. It was not memorable, didn’t pack enough flavor for me to ever want to come back, and back then, I just didn’t see the appeal of Vietnamese food when I can just go for tastier alternatives. Then I recently discovered Annam Noodle Bar, and it completely changed the way I looked at Vietnamese food.

Annam Noodle Bar is a quaint little joint located at the first floor of 1880 Eastwoo...

REVIEW: Gringo – Chicken and Ribs (Bonifacio Global City, Taguig)

This wasn’t my first try of Gringo’s Chicken and Ribs. Back in April this year, Gringo sent me a box of their bestselling ribs and chicken, and while they were all finger-lickin’ delicious, the quality and the experience was just not the same with dining in-store. I decided to finally go last month and treat myself to a nice, heavy meal that would make up for all the months I put off going to Gringo.

How I Lost Weight Without Exercise

Disclaimer: I’m not going to go as far as saying that these practices are healthy. I’m just narrating the story of how I managed to lose weight in the past couple of months.

Let me tell you a short story of how I gained weight. Short story: a full-time job happened. Stress happened, and I compensated with overeating. Last year, I was extremely unhappy with how I look because of the extra pounds I gained over my first year at my then-new job...

REVIEW: Matte in Detail Liquid Lipstick in Samantha

liquid lipstick philippines

With the rise of the Kylie Jenner lip kits, it was a blessing that a lot of liquid lippies came out in the market — most of which are more affordable, and some maybe of even better quality than Kylie Jenner’s. I was looking to try one a few weeks ago when I found a friend destashing some of her makeup. When I saw that she was giving away her Matte in Detail Liquid Lipstick, I just knew I had to get it!

Detail Make Over is a proudly-Pinoy brand that takes pride in creating high-quality, cruelty...
