Confessions of a Gym Newbie

Many of us have had thoughts of getting a gym membership, or even just inserting a simple exercise routine at home, but many of us have put off this thought too. However, in the name of clean slate beginnings, I mustered the courage to finally sign up at a gym near my crib. (Well, more…

Dining with a view at Fabio’s

There’s a fairly new place along Veteran’s Drive in Busay that got my attention for its humble blue-colored facade and visiting them proved to be a good decision for the very laid-back dining experience that I had. Everyone, say hello to Fabio’s Kitchen!

Annyeong Haseyo from Coffee Bay – Philippines

It’s a sheer delight when new coffee shops pop in Cebu despite me being not so much of a coffee drinker. I think I am more of a coffee shop fan and it gives me pure joy when I go “cafe-hopping” — more so when it’s a foreign coffee shop chain. This gives me an…

The FILED 2015 Doodle Planner

Ho, ho, ho! December, the most wonderful month of the year, is here! And that means one thing for me: getting a planner! For 2015, I got myself the Doodle Planner from FILED.

This game starts when you get nominated by whoever is doing the challenge. You have to post a black and white photo each day for 5 consecutive days. And along with…

Sweet Home Cafe

Coming back to Bohol after a very long time, I realized that Tagbilaran City is slowly becoming a modern town with the presence of various food spots. Imagine how happy I was to spot at least 3 coffee shops for now: Bo’s Coffee, Brewpoint, and Sweet Home Cafe. So today, I am writing about Sweet Home Cafe, considered…

Goodbye and Thank you, 2012

Freedom at 20-something.

It’s a serene Sunday evening here in my new crib. I could not help but take a break and look at where my life is now. Not so long ago, I  moved out of my relative’s house where I stayed for the past 5 years. I was overly thrilled with the idea of finally going…

2011: The year that was

During the holidays, I had the chance to backtrack my blog and realized that I did not post a year-end review for 2010.. I used to do it annually in my old blog but I think I got too lazy in Dec. 2010 that I skipped writing a year-ender post. So now, please allow me…

I got FILED!

2011 has been a good year for me. And what rightful way to celebrate it than to buy a kick-ass 2012 planner! I initially got drawn to buying those from Starbucks, or Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, or from Seattle’s Best, or those from Belle de Jour, etc.. (The probinsyana in me really wants to…

After a year of waiting, I can’t believe that I’m going to the 2011 Cebu Blog Camp!! Yayy for the approved registration! HaHa.. I first learned about this event through my university classmate and now a blogger, N. of nfblogs, because he was present during last year’s camp. And I was not. It would’ve been…

[Probinsya] Sinulog 2011 Fluvial Parade

The Sinulog is a very big religious event held annually in Cebu City on the third Sunday of January.  It is a pista, but of grander scale. One of the highlights of the Sinulog celebration is the fluvial parade. It’s a procession, except that it’s done off the waters Mactan Channel. The followers would either…
