Baguio Photo Diary ( Part 1)

First touchdown photo of me in Baguio.

Today, like right now, I am currently hyped up. I don't know why but my blood's boiling like I want to do something intense. Something dangerous. Something extreme. I want to shout at the top of my lungs until I lose my breath and more! So much adrenaline.

A Touch of Yellow

After coming back to Cebu on Monday evening, WORK welcomed me with open arms the day after. <///3 So I did not get to blog any of my Baguio adventures at all. I didn't have the time. But now, no more! My rest days are now here and I can't wait to spend the whole day blogging about our short escapade!

The night before our flight to Baguio, I gathered all my sweaters I bought from Cy Pitogo and brought them with me. Since Baguio is well known for its all year round coldness, I picked out mostly sweaters and long sleeves from my wardrobe and packed them all up in one go! And this outfit was one of them.

Spring in Summer

Spring everywhere! That's one thing for sure! And this would be a short post before I fly to Baguio for the holidays. 

Here in the Philippines, it's summer. But in other countries across the globe, it's spring. Two beautiful seasons in one go! So I decided to mix and match my clothes on the day that Harumi ( still remember her? ) together with her husband, Masashi, invited me and Cherry out for a lunch date in Marco Polo Hotel. Honestly, it was a first for Cherry and I. So we decided to dress up for the occasion.

Bento #1: Love and Hate Relationship Bento

Today, I tried to do the impossible. 


I have always wanted to learn how to cook. I want to practice. To learn and improve. But sometimes, the laziness consumes you, y'know. Especially during summer where the heat is at its peak. So I have thought of a way to inspire me to practice my skills in the kitchen. And guess what? It is the art of food-making : the great BENTO.

I have discovered a website that shows simple bento making recipes: Filipino style! That's right! Filipino style! I know Bento is lunchbox in Japanese, and it is filled with Japanese dishes and all but I am going to change that fact right now. Mabuhay!

As you continue reading this, you will learn how I did it. And how I have come up with an idea or two to meet the needs of my lovely boyfriend ( Yeah, you read it right: "lovely" Hohoho), Mac. Since Mac has such a big appetite, it was a challenge for me. Questions like: Should I go for sandwiches or rice? Should I go for egg or meat? Should I go for this and that and et cetera. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know where to start. But eventually, I realized something. I don't have to HAVE an idea; it would just come to you naturally. With what you have, start with that. Start with the simple ingredients. Leave what's next after that, NEXT. Just go with the flow. That's what I did. So below are some of the ingredients and materials I bought for my first ever bento:

A Ray of Sunshine

Now that all the fuss of being sick is gone, I'm back to being healthy and up and running ( I think). That was one heck of a week full of sleepless nights, headache-inducing coughs, dehydration overload, loud wheezing breath sounds heard in the middle of the night and more. I made my family worry. Cry. And not to mention, do things for me.

Pieces of Summer ( Part 2)

From a sore throat and a dry cough to a high fever and asthma attacks, this is getting out of hand. I am sick. So sick. I can't even open my eyes properly as I am blogging this now. Body malaise all over. On a hot summer day, I am getting chills. This is not good at all. I am craving for some coconut juice and a dozen of doughnuts. If you would be kind enough to bring me those, I am forever in your debt.

Pieces of Summer ( Part 1)

Oh, I can't believe I am having a sore throat again! Not to mention, a dry cough! Seriously. It makes me want to wear a poker face the whole day just to save what's left of my voice and just lie down on my warm bed. Summer is here! And here I am, having a sore throat and a dry cough under the scorching hot sun.
