Christmas Gift Guide: Cariza's

Here's the main reason why I was on a sugar high last week - Cariza's! I met with the owner, Hana Cariza Agbayani, last week at the Manila Sundance Bazaar and went home with a bag of goodies for me and my family.

Their products also make great gifts for your December gatherings as Cariza's is offering special cookie/cupcake boxes for the Christmas season! :)

Welcome to Tiago!

Being foodies, Mike and I are always on the quest for the best restaurants in the metro. Eating has proven to be a great way to bond - whether it be with your significant other, family members, or friends. Sure, there had been times when we'd leave a restaurant unsatisfied, but more than anything, it's been real fun discovering new places and trying out new dishes with this one.

Last week was no exception. From our visit to this cool Persian restaurant in Maginhawa, our next stop was Tiago in Tomas Morato.

Movie Suggestion: Pearl Harbor

Fine, I have a confession. It's been thirteen years since this movie came out, but I only saw it a few months ago. I was having a pretty crappy day, so I figured I might as well watch something sad. Weird logic, I know.

20 Shows I'm Currently Watching

It's a lot, I know. It kind of just happened, being that it's been raining a lot and all I want to do is lie in bed and watch series all day. Even I can't believe that I'm following twenty shows right now. That doesn't even include the ones that are still on break like Grimm and Game of Thrones. Gaah. I really need to go out more. :P

Z Compound: The Backyard Reservoir

The Backyard Reservoir
I’ve been wanting to try the stalls at Z Compound, but haven’t had the chance until last week. Aldous invited me to another bloggers' dinner and thanks to him, I was able to eat to my heart’s content at The Backyard Reservoir.

Ludo: BoardGame Bar & Cafe

Ludo BoardGame Bar
In this day and age where mobile phones, apps, and wifi rule our lives, bonding with family/friends has become a lot different. Conversations are shorter, meals are quieter. Why not have some old school fun for a change?

Chandelier - Sia

The first time I watched this, I closed the tab before even reaching the 30-second mark. It really creeped me out. Seriously. The scenes look like they came straight out of a horror movie. :P

But here I am on a Friday at 7am, giving it another shot, and it's actually really good. Great dancing and acting skills from Maddie Ziegler, the girl who plays Sia in the video. P.S. she looks like a angel in real life (google her!). You can also check out their performance together on Ellen here.

Majestique Nail Bar and Pampering Spa

Majestique Nail Bar
On July 19, 2014, Majestique Nail Bar and Pampering Spa opened along N. Domingo Street, San Juan City. They have various treatments - not only for the nails and feet, but for the entire body - that will certainly make their customers feel like royalty. With a name like Majestique, you can’t help but expect high quality services from them – and that’s exactly what I got when I visited them two weeks ago.

Wise Words from Colbie ♥

Wait a second,
Why, should you care, what they think of you
When you're all alone, by yourself, do you like you?
Do you like you?

You don't have to try so hard
You don't have to, give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don't have to change a single thing

You don't have to try so hard
You don't have to bend until you break
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don't have to change a single thing

Full lyrics here.

Finding Beauty in All Things

There's so much beauty to see if we just look. Nowadays, people have become so busy in their daily routines that they forget there's a whole world out there waiting to be seen.
