The nephew is crazy about the Minions and I think such fascination is rubbing on me. What can I say? They’re cute, friendly, and absolutely loyal to their master Gru. But how did they find him? That’s what the Minions movie is all about and I can’t wait to watch it!

In anticipation of the movie, Toy Con in Megamall last week had a Minion photobooth that captured my before and after Keratin treatment.


Big difference. Here’a close-up. From a messy, dry color treated hair to a straighter and smoother tresses.


And oh, just got the complete set of the Mc Donald’s Minions Happy Meal set. The nephew is definitely pleased about this.




Been doing the sunflowers pictorial at the UP campus for three years already.



There are quite a few shots this year. 


And this shot, taken by my officemate


These are the shots I like the best, taken at that island. Good hair day, I say.


Till next year!

Healing Food

Dining in Van Gogh is Bipolar at Maginhawa St. is definitely an experience.

Lovely place, with pretty furniture all over. It also helped that the owner welcomed us warmly and toured us in his resto which also happens to be his home.

Our meal was a surprise – we just have to do is to pick whether we want to eat meat, fish or vegetables, and our spice preference. We ended up satisfied, happy and chill. 

I love the sinful dessert! Ghana dark chocolate paired with Swedish wine. Skal!

I have to say, one of my best dinner dates ever. 

Colouring Projects

Colouring books are not just for kids. Although time consuming, and needs good eyes and hands, colouring can be a stress reliever for adults.

I have done a few pages and enjoying it so far. I find out that I need to enhance my colour combo pallete, that I need to stay away from black as much as possible, and I need a lot more patience to complete the work.


And my first work on pentel pens.


Idina Love

“Because I knew you, I have been changed for good.” This was the song Idina Menzel sang to thank her Filipino fans last night. The lovely Broadway star, of Rent and Wicked fame, serenaded us last night at the MOA Arena. (For the kids, she is the voice of Disney’s Queen Elsa.)

Idina sang Broadway songs, jazz standards, rock, pop, even a children’s song at the end of her repertoire. She sang beautifully, and we truly envy those who were sitting closer to the stage. She was also enagaging. The Rent-heads and Elphaba fans were happily singing along with her the Rent and Wicked songs, and the kids definitely crooned to the more wholesome “Let It Go”. My personal favorite, however,  is her rendition of the Annie classic, “Tomorrow.” I am still looking for thr Live CD, by the way. 

The closest I could get with Idina.

I am just awed and amazed that I was able to see her (well, not exactly) and hear her beautiful voice. It was like watching Wicked and Rent on Broadway. Dream come true.

Thanks Idina Menzel! Please come back to Manila soon.


Meet Pie Face

Australian based resto chain Pie Face comes to Manila.

I love the pie faces!!! This is their bestseller chunky steak.

This will be my profile pic very soon. The pie may be small but this is already very filling.


We had savory pies, dessert pies, dessert, and coffee. Busog!

Also, had the best service. We got some freebies as part of their promo.

Thanks Pie Face! Definitely we’ll be back.


Beaching in Pundaquit Pt. 2

Still on the Island Tour: The White Beaches

I have been to Capones Island in 2010 and I have to say that the white beach is gorgeous. This still holds true today.

Finally, Camara Island is full of these kinds of stones. First time I’ve seen it.

Beautiful. One of the best beach trips I ever took, not only because of the view but because of the company.

Yay for semi-planned trips and last summer getaways!

my story, among other things.
