2014.05.12

I couldn’t sleep so I decided to post an entry after forever. I realized I’m really the type of person who can’t be consistent at the things I like to do. I really want to change that – so I will try to put more effort into this. I don’t expect this blog to gain a wide…

B1A4 – Lonely

B1A4 is back with another great song – probably the greatest sounding song I’ve heard from a male group in the longest time! Wow, this is equal with 2NE1’s Missing You in my opinion. The video is very well thought of – reminds me of the book, The Unbearable Lightness of Being – not because…

My #2013 Year-End Rundown!

So, another year has gone by! Time flies fast – but if there’s one thing I’m thankful for, it’s that I’m shutter crazy. My Instagram photos document some of the most important moments of my life. And here’s a rundown of the moments that made 2013 a great year for me! JANUARY FEBRUARY MARCH APRIL…

Viaje del Sol – Majayjay Bed & Breakfast

Our resting place for the night is a quaint bed and breakfast found in the middle of nowhere. Majayjay Bed & Breakfast is quite posh for its location! The main lobby is very Filipino in terms of architecture – wooden tables, chairs and walls, and some Filipino wooden artifacts are displayed all over the place.…

Viaje del Sol – Nagcarlan, Laguna

One should not be a tourist in his own country. And more importantly, one has to learn of the people who have lived their lives and died fighting for our country’s freedom. Our next stop is the Nagcarlan Underground Cemetery. Laguna is one of the first 8 provinces that revolted against Spanish rule and has…

Viaje del Sol – Lake Pandin

On our first day, we left Makati quite later than scheduled so we skipped out some of the items in our itinerary (e.g., Rizal Shrine in Calamba). The weather wasn’t looking too good – it was cloudy and the sun was nowhere to be found. Odd when we were taking the Viaje del Sol or…

Turning #Japanese again

Sunday was a day I revisited my Japanese “roots”. On the way to and from Laiya, we were playing Japanese music in the car. 4/5 were into Japanese music so for the first time, people didn’t ask me to change the music! My dream of going on a road trip while listening to Japanese music…

#Laiya with BP&A and Bisdaks

A chance to go to the beach came and I had to grab it! Gil and his F1 friends were planning for a day trip to Virgin Beach in Laiya, and extended the invite to us. The last time I’ve been to Laiya was September of last year – the same time Pacquiao had a…

2NE1 – 그리워해요 (MISSING YOU)

Finally, after two months of waiting, 2NE1 released their third single for this year. And I would have to say that it’s the best one so far! I enjoyed both Falling in Love and Do You Love Me, but this one is just too good! I can feel the pain and emotion in the melody…

#HAIYAN

I’m back after a long absence. A lot of things happened over the weekend, the strongest recorded super typhoon in history is one of them. Haiyan, or locally called Yolanda, caused massive destruction in the Visayas, my hometown Cebu included. Tacloban and the other towns in Leyte have it the worst though, with death tolls…

#NUCinema: Ekstra

Today was my first ever outdoor cinema experience. Nuvali had an event called NUCinema and they showed indie films, including two highly acclaimed ones from this year’s Cinemalaya – Transit and Ekstra. I was actually hesitant about going out tonight because I wanted to rest from last night’s activities. However, I thought twice about it and decided…

Global Ops #HalloweenParty

Last night was probably my first costume party since high school! Our team from work had a Halloween party at our boss’ place. I appreciated the effort people took in attending with their costumes. Here are some of the photos I took during the event! 🙂 The most popular costume is the “witch” because it…

#TBT: Hunter X Hunter OSTs

I am grateful for the Hunter X Hunter 2011 remake. But, what really made Hunter X Hunter special to me back then were the songs that played during the start and at the end of each episode. I even printed out lyrics and memorized them by heart. So, for today’s ThrowBack Thursday – here are…

#ELBI Tour – Baan Thai

After getting lost in the long and winding road of Makiling to get to St. Marc’s Chapel, we were starving! Debbie took us to this quaint Thai restaurant just outside the main gate of UPLB. It’s a small and humble place to be considered a “restaurant”, but the food is way better than most Thai restaurants…

#ELBI Tour – St. Marc’s Chapel

Last Tuesday was declared a holiday, so Debbie invited us for a tour around her alma mater, the University of the Philippines – Los Baños (UPLB) in Laguna. Our plan was to tour the campus area and have a nice picnic. It rained when we got there but luckily, it stopped just in time for…

2013.10.23 – Just another lazy Sunday

Today I woke up to the sound of election jingles making their rounds all over Poblacion, Makati. Then I was reminded that the local barangay elections is in one week’s time. Unfortunately, I will not be able to participate because I’m not going home to Cebu for it. I closed my eyes and went back…

#VisayasEarthquake

Yesterday, we were on our way to a field trip in UP Los Banos, when I received a text from my sister that a 7.2-magnitude earthquake just hit Cebu. Immediately, social media was flooded with the most heart-breaking photos of churches and buildings that collapsed due to the quake. As of the latest update from…
