How do I describe the Philippines? Two words: Food Haven! If there’s anything I’d keep coming back for more, I’d say the food because oh-ma-gaaa! Not only are they cheap, but they’re actually really good, thus satisfying my palate (true for the most part) with every bite. They’re flavorful (playborpul) and there’s just so much variety, I don’t even know where to begin! Continue reading “Weekend Shenanigans – Philippine Version Part 2”
What’s up homies? It’s been a few days since I got back from the Philippines where I spent last weekend pretty much just pigging out. Every year, my coworker and I get invited by our sister company to celebrate Christmas with them before the actual occasion when everybody is still available to do so. While we’ve only ever celebrated at our superiors’ houses before, this time we went to a resort called Cintai Corito’s in Lipa City, Batangas. Prior to leaving, I read about this place which is apparently a Balinese-inspired sanctuary which is what it says on their website, so go google it if you’re interested.

Hello people! It’s been a while again since I posted anything again due to the fact that work has once again taken over most of my time, but fear not for I’m not here to rant nor complain, but to share a long overdue post with you.
I’ve had this in my drafts for a year now because it HAS been a year since we were in Cambodia and I just realized that I never got to share the photos from our “Temple Run” adventure, so I hope you enjoy them.

It was like a scene from a fairy tale and the longer I was there, the more it felt surreal, but it definitely happened. My soul sister whom I’ve known almost my whole life has tied the knot with the love of her life, Billi and I couldn’t be happier for them. Continue reading “Billi & Tiffany tie the knot”
They say that “absence makes the heart grow fonder” and I couldn’t agree more. That said, working six days a week has not been easy in terms of hanging out since both mine and Carlos’ schedule rarely overlap which is why when we got the chance to have the same day off, we decided to go to Hong Kong to relax. And by relax, I mean walking till our feet hurt, trying out food places for the nth time and taking pictures: lots of them! Continue reading “Good Ole Hong Kong”
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t miss hanging out with these people. Like I said in my previous posts, we were only in Dumaguete for a really short, but sweet time. However, looking back at the photos that everybody took, it sure seemed like we were there for a much longer period.
I’d forgotten all my woes during that time. And while we’re all fully grown adults, walking around Silliman University made me feel like a teenager/student hanging out with my good old friends. Continue reading “Dumaguete – Part 3”
It’s been more than a month since our last trip and I’m still not done posting about Dumaguete. Do bear with me as I’ve been busy lazing around during my days off, but then again, it’s not like anybody really cares whether I post this or not. However, I’m doing this for future me, so I’ll have something to look back on whenever I feel like reminiscing.
Anyways, moving on to our second day in DGT, our friends took us to Apo Island where it was definitely a first for me since I’m not really a big fan of being in water whilst I do enjoy the occasional swim. You see I have a phobia of water for some inexplicable reason, but not to the extent where I wouldn’t try things for the first time. I wasn’t going to miss out on swimming with the turtles especially when everybody was going to do it. Continue reading “Dumaguete – Part 2”
It’s been a while since I shared anything on this blog mostly because I’ve been so preoccupied with work and mostly work. However, about a month ago I got a much needed break where my childhood friends and I flew to Dumaguete City in the Philippines. And there, we met up with two of our other friends. I don’t speak for everyone when I say I certainly did not know what to expect although their airport reminded me of Cambodia because of its size. We got our bags immediately, went outside and saw our friends waiting for us which was so surreal given that we had not seen them for a while and the fact that we had not slept the night before. Continue reading “Dumaguete – Part 1”
It’s been a while since I last blogged again, mostly because the past month has been an emotional roller coaster ride, but I’ve kind of gotten a hang of it. I must say it’s been tough having to work alone, but now that’s over and I feel okay.
Continue reading “The Windy City”
It’s been a while again since my last post because I’ve been so busy #adulting and trust me when I say it’s getting old. However, I do not want to get into details because what I really wanted to share with you guys in this post is a video of our trip to Japan last February when we got to explore a few more different cities than we previously had. Watching this video over and over again has made me miss being in another country or city, getting lost in translation (applicable to countries that do not have English as their native tongue), eating good food and of course being with some of the people who matter to me. Check it out and enjoy!
All credit goes to Carlos for this video, but we do not own the song!
