..is because of… 1. the ever lovely Bingo! He runs, bites, jumps, and kisses us whenever we visit in their house.

Lisa san is my cooking teacher nowadays (since Taku complain a … Continue reading Why I love Waide Family!
I think this is the first time for me to talk about Couchsurfing here. I’ve been a Couchsurfer since January 2011 when I was about to travel to Jakarta and whenever I look back, I always recall fun and amazing memories connected to couchsurfing. I met so many wonderful people in CS, particularly in CS Manila. I developed wonderful friendships and have continued doing what … Continue reading CS Manila for Batad Rice Terraces @ Mercato + Floydy
Seems like we were childhood friends in a reunion trip, yeah? Upon looking at the photos of my year-end-new-year trip with Taku and his friends, I noticed that I’ve developed fondness in these guys, actually, I call them ‘Universal Boys!’. Haha. I’m amazed with guys with wonderful friendships, in fact, I have some college friends (SIBAK) who are just like these guys, but this group … Continue reading NYE 2012: Universal Boys
I had a happy accident about a year ago and it proved that everything is perfect in its own time. I still smile upon the thought of the first question, “Do you like Japanese food?” Until now, he makes sure that I’m very well fed. I found a buddy (that supports me in pursuing what I love), partner and best friend. This was our 2011 … Continue reading It’s been a year, buddy!

I thought that I already prepared for the event and will never be emotional but at the moment the church’s door was opened and Zha in a beautiful pink shoes and white tube gown with a very beautiful smile appeared, I’ve proven that “wedding” is part of my long list … Continue reading She was a beautiful bride.
My dad turned 59 last Tuesday. This year, he celebrated his great day with the same enthusiasm but in a different venue, hospital. 😦 Growing up, he’s a very strict dad but he always explain his point. I don’t know why but he’s very expert in world history (that’s why he’s very bored in the hospital because there are no CNN or BBC and he … Continue reading Tweeting helped my dad.
There’s truly no place like home and Christmas in the Philippines always leaves wonderful memories. Aside from the usual things that we know about the Christmas Pinoy like the “simbang gabi” with puto bumbong and bibingka, and carolling; what I like about Christmas in the Philippines are the Family Reunions especially nowadays that there are many OFWs and this is the season that not … Continue reading Paskong Pinoy
Whenever I talk to foreigners, they always talk about how Filipino families are so tight and how we care about each other. In other countries, when you bump to someone with the same family name, most of the time, you just care less or not care at all but for Filipinos, it’s like a magical moment—determining your connection with each other, then thoughts fly so … Continue reading Family Times Two.
Boracay Trip 2011 Romance can never be forced, you can just set the mood but certainly, it comes unexpectedly. Everything was in its place during our Boracay trip, even the cancelled flight turned out to be a blessing. I couldn’t believe that there would be a perfect trip or maybe it’s because I changed the way I look at things now. Funny how we tried … Continue reading It just comes.
Since I started to live independently, I didn’t find much time to cook for two main reasons: I am normally tired at the end of the day and it’s harder to cook for one person (I don’t want to eat the same food for a week!). I didn’t find time, didn’t prioritize learning, so I end up stagnant with the dishes that I’ve learned from … Continue reading Never a Gourmet, Always a Gourmand.
