Tips on losing the holiday fat

Traveling to a country with a lot of good food, giant portions, unlimited supply of dairy, decadent desserts and sweets really led me to gain weight.

My Word of the Year

My Word of the Year

Since 2011, I started the practice of beginning my year with a word or declaration on how I envision the year that was in front of me.

30 Places before 30

I remember back in high school when my parents didn’t allow me to go on beach “gimiks” with friends, even go to a nearby mall! It was very hard to ask permission from them. “You’ll have a lot of chances when you grow up,” they would always tell me. Then I would shut the door … Continue reading

It’s the Masskara festival in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental two weeks before my birthday! (October 19-21) I booked my flight around 3 months before this event and I already had a hard time looking for an open slot. I didn’t even book a hotel, I knew they were going to be fully booked so I was … Continue reading

A maternity shoot and a baby shower!

It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon for a maternity shoot with my good friend Cai. She’s ready to pop very soon and she wanted to have a souvenir of her first pregnancy.

Summer 2012 playlist

I used to list down my “songs of the moment” in my old blogs, whether they be songs I could relate to at that time, songs that are currently on the loop in my iPod or in the car, or those that bring back old memories and feelings. So here’s a countdown to my top … Continue reading
