EVENT: Beyond the Box x iPhone 7 Midnight Launch

We know how crazy the lines can get in anticipation for the newest iPhone models — we’ve seen it year after year. This year, it was different, as we saw firsthand how people waited in line for three hours (or more!) just to get their hands on the iPhone 7, the latest iPhone model, during the Midnight Launch event at Beyond the Box Resorts World Manila.

It comes as no surprise that people flocked to Beyond the Box, at midnight no less, to be one of the first owners of the iPhone 7 and the iPhon...

REVIEW: Tokyo Tokyo Makirrito

tokyo tokyo makirrito sushi burrito

So remember how I left Nori utterly disappointed with their Sushi Burrito? Well, I didn’t regret that one too much, because I like to try everything at least once. At least I learned early not to come back. I almost lost faith in the concept of the sushirrito until Tokyo Tokyo came up with something similar but not quite: the Tokyo Tokyo Makirrito.

It’s a third of the price of a sushirrito at Nori, and has two variants: The Samurai Karaage (Php 100), and the California Kani (Php 100)...

How to Cheer Up an ESTP

So I’m writing this today, today out of all days when I’m depressed and I feel like despair is eating me alive. Right now, I don’t feel like I’m in control of my life, and I hate it. I’ve tried to keep my options open, and try to do as many things as I can, only to realize that I am spreading myself way too thin, and now, I don’t feel in control. If you know an ESTP like me, this is VERY! IMPORTANT! ESTPs are not going to wait for the next good thing to happen in their lives, because they don’...

I’ve been feeling under the weather for the past two months (like really sick – I had to go to the doctor after spiking a fever, and take prescribed antibiotics for a week) which is why I haven’t been as active these past few weeks...

REVIEW: Raclette Manila (POP Kitchen, Rockwell Powerplant Mall)

Doesn’t everything just taste better with cheese? I think so, too. So when Raclette Manila started its cheese scraping spree at Rockwell Powerplant Mall’s POP Kitchen, I knew I had to try it! After all, they were only going to be there for a month, I might as well make sure not to miss it!

Of course, I found that there were other cheese scrapers in the metro aside from Raclette Manila...

Jing Monis Salon x Wella

Last month, I was invited to Kaye Abad’s bridal shower by Jing Monis Salon. I didn’t know Kaye personally, but I welcomed the opportunity to meet her on her special day, and learn about what the salon has to offer. Here’s what happened:

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)

latin american restaurant manila

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.

The word Gringo in Latin America means “foreigner,” but the masterminds behind the restaurant ...
