Consider the Source


When I first wrote this, it was because I couldn’t sleep.

When one can’t sleep, it’s usually because their mind is a river of thoughts – flowing, flowing, flowing ever so endlessly through the hours of the night.

Going bananas over The Butter Half

Food, review

I love banana bread. There’s always been a special place in my heart (or should I say, stomach) for this piece of art since college days. So when the #EastwoodBananaFestival happened last June 30-July 2, I made sure I got a taste of The Butter Half’s famous banana bread.

Morning Warmth – Rosie Ramirez


Leisurely photowalk with a former officemate, Teacher Rosie. In this short stint, I was able to learn more about angles and time maximization. We were supposed to start at an early hour in the morning but traffic in Manila is hell — even on weekends — so with minimal directing here and there, we were able to take an ample amount of shots.

KZ Tandingan and Quest at BPI-Philam’s ‘Win the Moment’ Wellness Fest


Last June 24, BPI-Philam celebrated a first — an event dedicated to holistic health.

Back at Kagura

Culture, Food, photography

My college friends and I have often eaten at Kagura in Little Tokyo, Makati since we were still struggling students. Almost 5 years later after graduation, we went back to this haven to have some classic okonomiyaki – never gets old, the food and the company. This time, the difference is we have Chase with us, whose set of close friends also happen to enjoy visiting Little Tokyo. (We even went to the last Asahi Beer Festival together!)
