How to Go Around Bangkok

My first visit to Bangkok last February, we got a tour and was there for only two full days and wasn’t able to see much of the place. It was a rushed trip (we booked a week before leaving) and then we had trip problems when we arrived so we were tired and beat after…

Visiting Bangkok’s Old Capital: Ayutthaya

Ayutthaya isΒ the old capital of Thailand but was destroyed but the Burmese during the 18th century. Ruins of the old capital remain and are well-preserved all over the place. When I got back from Bangkok last February, my boss mentioned that the next time I go, I should get a tour going to Ayutthaya. She…

Happy Skin x Disney: Elsa

Happy Skin recently launched its Disney collection lipsticks. All your favorite Disney princesses now come in a colorful tube! You get: Cinderella, Ariel, Belle, Snow White, Elsa, and Anna! They are initially sold by pair, but I dropped by Happy Skin in Glorietta 2 and found out they were sold individually which made me really…

22nd Birthday

It was my birthday last Friday! I decided to take a birthday leave from work due to personal stuff, but I was in the city the whole day. I love celebrating my birthday but I’m not the type who’s big on actual celebrations. I like lowkey stuff like dinners — kinda celebrating it like a…

Thailand Adventure: Part 2

(After three months, here’s Part 2!) So we get to our hotel and the receptionist tells us that there is no room available because the AC is broken. He said he’ll transfer us to a different hotel. Okay, fine. At this point we can’t really be choosy. It’s late, we’re tired, and we have a…

Wild Eats at Wildflour

I learned about Wildflour since last year but only had a chance to dine in there when I started to work. Wildflour is conveniently located behind my office so it’s easy to go to. I haven’t tried all the food they have yet, everyone says the kimchi rice is good but on my first visit…

Thailand Adventure: Part 1

I had a quick weekend getaway in Bangkok last month. It was a bit of a rushed trip! I booked my flight about a week prior to when I planned to leave and I was just there for two days. I went straight to work from my flight. Thailand is my first overseas trip, and…

Greek Eats at Feta

If you are looking for an affordable and good place to satisfy your Greek food cravings, Feta is the way to go. Their menu is pretty straightforward. You have your hummus plates, bread, main course, pasta, pizza, and desserts. The menu is designed with different facts about Greece which I found pretty cool and entertaining….

Jacinto and Lirio: Planners for you and the environment

Planners are really great in keeping your life and schedule organized. In the past few years I would always start writing on my planner and then stop updating it after a few months. However now that things are busier for me, I’ve learned to keep my planner around so I can immediately write in appointments…

Spending one day in Davao

I had another work trip outside Luzon, and this time I went to Davao! I am super excited because Davao is known for its discipline and cleanliness and I wanted first hand experience. It was a very peaceful flight. As the airplane was getting ready for descent, I could see how green and nature-y Mindanao…

First time: Cebu

There’s so much of the Philippines that I have yet to visit but never get the chance to. Two weeks ago, I had my first business trip to the Queen City of the South… CEBU! I had an early morning flight and of course I got a window seat. No idea where this is, but…

Japanese eats: Maisen, Greenbelt

Whenever someone mentions Japanese food to me, I always think of sushi. I never really sought Japanese food, but I like it. During my last year in college, my friends brought me to this nearby Japanese food place that serves Katsu… and there goes the expansion of my Japanese food knowledge. My friend had his…
