Checking In

Just renewed my plan for this blog, and I realized I was not able to maximize my last year’s plan, and I am not really good at maintaining my commitment to write more often. I know I do not have to explain to anyone, but my inactivity here is just a mere by-product of life’s…

Missing You

I miss seeing your happy face; Your smile that lights up even our darker days. I miss watching you giggle That makes our heart grow triple. I miss feeling the warmth of your embrace, Your hug that feels like a safe place. I miss resting my head on your shoulder, Your whisper saying that everything…

Facade

It’s hard to play pretend Like there’s nothing happening. You hope and pray everything will mend, Because deep inside you’re truly hurting. It’s hard to play pretend Like you are strong as how you want people to see you. You try so hard to bend and blend, Taking every minute to get through. It’s hard…

Sunnies Cafe: Serving Sunshine in Every Dish

I’ve been meaning to try Sunnies Cafe for the longest time. I am a self-confessed fan/stalker of its Instagram account. Opportunity to try it came when my boyfriend was assigned in Boni to attend a week-long training, and having a dinner date in Megamall suddenly became realistic. They say when opportunity knocks on your door,…

Healthy Boundaries

Wow! It has been weeks since I last posted an entry. I have a lot of drafts awaiting review, but I am still finding the best time to squeeze them in my current schedule. Apologies for my inactivity for the past weeks, but it has been a very, very busy start of the year for me….

Pablo’s Carrot Cake

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Our situation is a complete opposite. My beau totally won my heart (along with several other reasons) through food – be it savory or sweet. He is one of the best cooks, I must say. (Hi, Anjin! I deserve a Supportive Girlfriend Award. *wink…

Make a Stand
