Thank you, 2016!

2016 was extravagant! My 2016 was filled with new experiences and new horizons. It just made me realize that you have to have courage when dealing with problems and trials. There were bad times, but the good times overlapped the bad ones, which I thank God for. It also made me realize that you have to have a decent footing—a very strong foundation! Without it, you can't go on. Without your family and without your friends, you can't go on. No man is an island. You have to have a very good support system to help you get through it all. ♥ I was blessed. Thank you, Lord, for everything. You were always there for me. I am really grateful.

I'm Engaged!

Sorry for the lack of updates on my blog. Things have been happening (quite a few) lately, and coping with each and every one of them really sucks your energy.

Buffet 101 International Cuisine

We celebrated my mom's birthday (again, I want to greet you a happy, happy birthday, Mama Hen. I love you!) in Buffet 101 International Cuisine located in Garden Apartelle Road, Mandaue City. We had lunch, and you don't need to worry about parking since the parking area's so spacious. It was my brother's idea to celebrate mom's birthday here and noting that it would be Mark's and my first time to be here, we decided to give it a go.

Bon Odori 2016

Bon Odori 2016. Haha. How time flies. I still remember my first Bon Odori (see post here and here), and every single time, you'd go running after your money. Delicious food here, fun games there, and assorted activities everywhere–who would fight against the temptation when you're surrounded by it? We had a jolly good time. The fireworks were stupendous, and we got two dosage of it in one night. One was from Bon Odori itself, and the other was from someplace far/near (probably SM Seaside).

Cosmo FunFearlessLife!

Last May 28, 2016, I was invited to attend Cosmo's FunFearlessLife event. It was an event full of new learnings, inspirational talks, and fashion advice. I learnt so much. They gave out so many tips to young girls on how to be fun and fearless at the same time. I would like to thank Marjorie for inviting me to this memorable event. There were so many local bloggers, and I was in such awe. ♥ There were so many freebies too! I had a free hand massage from Beauty and Butter and got a voucher. There were also SkinWhite, Bo's Coffee, Avida and many more sponsors. And also, I won a free pair of shoes from Charles & Keith, thanks to Cosmopolitan. For some reason, I expected that I would win. Haha. Anyway, the food was great, and the drinks were superb. Unfortunately, I ain't a fan of lady drinks, but Marj said it was good!

When Life Gives You Lemons

...make lemonade! There are times when I want to get out and just let my feet take me wherever. I want to travel. I want to conquer fears. I want to laugh until I cough out, gasping for air. I want to lie wherever and just gaze at the stars.

Back To Basics

Happy Fiesta, Pungtod, Nueva Caceres! It was St. Joseph's feast day, and we decided to pay my little province a visit. ♥ When we arrived, food welcomed us with open arms (because we arrived around 1:00 p.m., and we haven't eaten our lunch yet so we were famished). We hurriedly went to the table and ate.

Pink Filter

My god, this place has a filter on its own! ♥ I'm starting to love this place! The food's great, the drinks are extremely out of this world, and they even hold live bands to boot. I'll never get enough of the ambiance of this place. When Mary brought me here the first time, I instantly fell in love. The Monastery is a place I will truly keep in my heart. I will surely be visiting in the future; I even want to bring my boyfriend, Mark, here this Sunday for a casual date (long time since we had one because we're currently having an LDR #engineerperks). Since it's the Holy Week, he's here to visit. I have to recommend their 3-cheese pizza, grilled pork belly, carbonara, and their lemon beer. Prices are reasonable. Guys, you definitely have to go there someday.

I'm going to make this post as short as possible since laziness is kicking in (don't judge me; I wanna lie down). Last Saturday, two of my friends came to visit and made that day fun and memorable. From 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., not a minute of that Saturday was dull. Playing Dead Space (I heard Juan squeal for the very first time); Tekken; Never Have I Ever; I Can, You Can't—man, it's like I wished that day could last a bit longer. Despite the delay of our fast food order (which was supposed to be our lunch now turned into dinner), that day was full of wonderful stories (and even a bit of truth—which by the way, regretted something :x). Anyway, it felt so good to be able to use my camera again (oh, that reminds me. I have to get my baby cleaned one of these days). It's been two months since my last shoot, which happens to be last year! Gasp! I just realized now that this is my first shoot for 2016. Hoorah!

Judee's Vacations by the Beach - V2's Review

We finally had our reunion! After so, so long, we finally got together last Monday, March 14, 2016. It's good to see my friends again after years of constant missed schedules and the like. We got to catch up with each other's lives and share stories—good ones and bad. We call our little circle of friends V2. We've been together since 2011, and the group consists of mostly couples. Haha. We would have summer outings annually. This year...well, I'll tell you all about it. Besides, this post will all be about our little stay in Judee's Vacations by the Beach. This is to warn future goers. This is OUR review.

ChannelFix Video - Inside Out

Hello, guys! How's it been? Oh, the keyboard feels so nostalgic. Here I am, back again. typing a post. It's good to be back. I really can't point out the reason for my long blogging break, but maybe, there are some circumstances in my life that had resulted the said hiatus.

Japanese Curry

2016 is going well so far. Haha. I have taken one step forward in cooking. And since this is the first (proper) dish I have made (besides reheating leftovers or cooking quick-fry food such as eggs and hotdogs), I decided to document it and share you the recipe. It's no other than the Japanese curry!

In Threes

The twentieth of December was a day well spent. This was my last shoot for the year 2015, and it was a good year-ender. It was a busy day full of experience and random conversations. When a friend of mine from Manila decided to visit Cebu and wanted a fun shoot, I went for my best friend—Kim—and asked her to be the model.
