I SEA You! 🌊💦

The Philippines is an archipelago — this country took it seriously that no man is an island. When we want to visit a diferrent province, most often than not we would have to travel by boat or by plane. One can only expect that this country has a lot of beaches.

Stepping On A Land Mine

A few years ago when I was still occupied with my day job, I didn’t have the time to manage my blog. But I was active on forums, sharing my thoughts and interacting with fellow users. There was this incident wherein I got into a heated discussion about WordPress versus Blogspot with a poster who was a devout Blogspot user.

Hearty Meaty Curry Recipe

Here is a simple and easy recipe that is close to my heart. My boyfriend, Jer, and I enjoy cooking together. He is great at portioning the ingredients, while I’m horrible at estimating them. To redeem myself, I’m the one who’s in charge of the flavor and final touches of the dish. 😉 Who would have thought, right? If you’ve been reading this blog since 2009, you are probably aware that I used to be so horrible at cooking that even following a recipe ends up as a disaster. 😅

Mistaken Identity

I’ve been known to be a frugal person, I usually save and invest my hard-earned money and tend to reward myself only after I’ve achieved a goal. Back in 2013, I was given a Louis Vuitton wallet, which I’ve always thought to be a knock-off because it’s colorful and designer brands are horrifyingly expensive here. I like the length of the wallet, just didn’t like that the card slots were too small.

An Ode to Bo’s

I’ve always snubbed Bo’s coffee before for two reasons: when I look at their menu, I don’t find their drinks interesting enough and I’m partial to Starbucks. Until my friend, Gwyn, introduced me to it. Admittedly, Bo’s only got special to because it’s where I spent time with her and got to know her while sipping on coffee. That’s when I realized “the coffee isn’t so bad”. I wasn’t even paying attention that their coffee is actually homegrown.
