Some things just never change. I was just watching Brooklyn 99 when Boyle, a character from the show, caught my attention. He mentioned reviewing food and including the criteria of "mouth feel" in grading food, which was hilariously fascinating. Above: Capt. Holt appreciating Charles Boyle's email blast because his food reviews include measuring "mouth feel". I … Continue reading There’s Just Something about Port Cafe’s Carbonara and Waffles.
Last night, Dolores O'Riordan died. She was the vocalist of The Cranberries, a band that unusually added a different color to my high school life. In 2008, I was still a sophomore at Assumption College of Davao. We didn't have a computer yet, so to kill time and boredom, I was renting out DVDs from … Continue reading Your Voice Will Linger On, Dolores.
Just because something breaks free, doesn't mean nothing beautiful will ever grow again. I'm not heartbroken.

Apparently, this time, the glare has been … Continue reading REVIEW: Wearing Anti-radiation Eyeglasses for One Week

It's located in Matina, Davao City, near my University. Who would've thought I'd still take the same route I took for six years? Ha-ha. Oh, right. How … Continue reading BLOGGED: New Job and the Thai Winter Melon Drink
We celebrated my niece's third birthday through a hearty lunch at Nanay Bebeng's, an all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant at Garcia Heights, Davao City. Aaliyah is already three years old. Seriously, she was so small before! Now she's a happy toddler -- always runs in circles and always jumps. This day was a perfect pick-me-up because … Continue reading Hearty Birthday Lunch at Nanay Bebeng’s
