City Mobility: Getting a Bike

Cover photo from: Manila traffic will ease up in 15 years, according to this article – 15 years meaning if I’m not yet a busy mother raising 5 beautiful children by that time, I’ll most probably be a groovy lola gardening and knitting in my quiet little home in the province. I am a commuter and as we all know, commuting in Metro Manila is getting worse by the minute. Commute or drive, traffic will be a.. Read More

Wish I had more time and energy to capture great moments and more money to support my activities haha! April revolved mostly around school though. Maybe June. If things workout well 😀

When Hunger Strikes


Yup, we had nothing in the pantry. It was Friday (for those who don’t get it, it’s for Lent) and I don’t want to eat anchovies.

I wanted more fruits but I had nothing but apple in.. Read More

Polecats-ing Up

So happy I’m able to exercise again! I’ve been so busy since December, and I didn’t want to let February pass without really, REALLY moving, so I made an effort to go back to my weekly routine. I missed playing—how workouts should be called to make it sound more exciting! Aside from my usual rough sports, I also do pole dancing—more of pole tricks actually, not so much dancing. :p     I first heard.. Read More

A Simple Feast: NamNamSam


Last week, my good friend Sam invited me and some of our friends to have brunch at her place. I was so excited! I couldn’t believe we were already at that stage — inviting friends over and hosting brunches. You see, I knew Sam ever since we were in prep.
