    Our Balangay Sunset Cruise Experience

    A week ago, Jec and I joined a Balangay Sunset Cruise at Roxas Boulevard. I almost didn’t go because I was feeling lazy at the last minute, but since we already made reservations, we still went. And I enjoyed it a lot! Motion sickness and phobias aside, it was refreshing to be away from the noise of Manila even for 2 hours. There were less than 20 of us in the Balangay, so it was pretty intimate. The boat could fit more people, but I guess they really intended to make the cruise for a close group of people. I’m not very good at describing my experiences and recalling all…

    The Woodman’s Head | Restaurant + Food Review

    It seems like I’m making a habit of reviewing all the restaurants/bars I’m going to recently, but it’s also a great way to challenge myself in writing something that’s not my forte. So without further ado, I give you another restaurant/bar review! A week ago, We Are Choosy Beggars held a gig in The Woodman’s Head. It’s a somewhat swanky bar in the stretch of P. Burgos in Makati City. I’ll have to admit – my first impression when I went inside was that it was a little intimidating. I guess it was because it’s not my crowd, but the longer I stayed there, the more I felt in place.

    September Accomplishments

    September wasn’t eventful for me, goals-wise. I’d like to think that whenever I get a full-time job, I zoom in on that and tend to forget everything else. Or at least, have lesser time for other things since a typical full-time job entails 8 hours of continuous work per day for 5 days in a week.

    DANS Restobar | Restaurant + Food Review

    DANS Restobar is an isolated restaurant and bar in the stretch of Shaw Boulevard that you’d never expect to love but will. It’s best to go there via car but if you’re commuting, it’s a walkable distance from Starmall. From the pictures, it looks like a huge bar that can house a good capacity of customers, but in the flesh, it’s more intimate and compressed – not that it’s an issue, though!

    How I Became A Fitness Ambassadress Feat. Fit Access PH

    The gym is my safe haven. It’s where I go when I have too many toxic thoughts floating in my head. It’s where I go when I doubt myself but persevere to prove those doubts wrong.  The gym is my happy place, suffice to say. Likewise, I find joy in being an inspiration for others. I find satisfaction in people’s comments that I helped them, that I continue to inspire them, that they started working out because of me. Me. Like, for real? When I started working out some years back, when I was in 3rd-year college, specifically, I didn’t see myself being a “fitspiration” to anybody. Good Lord, I…

    Self-Love Club with PLUMP.PH

      Two Thursdays ago (May 25, 2017), I attended Self-Love Club’s first ever meeting.  I wasn’t really supposed to go but I ended up going because it wouldn’t do any harm, right? Albeit the hesitation and the mild confusion, I gave myself the chance to learn more about this so-called “Self-Love Club”. Besides, Danah and Stacy were leading the club, so I was sure a fruitful night was waiting for me. I was also just inside the house the entire week so I thought it would be a good chance to go out and have some real girl bonding while at it.

    Gym Gear Essentials: What To Wear During Your Workout

    Following my recent blog posts on  5 gym equipment you should invest in, and alternative gym equipment for your home workout, I’m publishing a relevant topic. This time, let’s focus on gym gear, clothes, and accessories. I don’t want to leave you hanging so call this a 3-part blog post if you may, but it’s also relatively important to be mindful of what you wear in the gym.  I actually wrote a snippet about this a year ago because I can’t stress enough the importance of wearing proper attire. If not for the dress code, at least do it to allow more mobility and for you to perform at your…
