It was a very rocky journey for me in this country everyone who had been a part of the beginning knows everything that we have endured. Being a working student is a really humbling experience, kudos to all who became working students, proud of you all. It made me stay on the ground which I am not used to. It was hard, too hard for me to do the things that I wasn’t used to doing. But I tried, tried my very best. Worked and fought the culture that I wasn’t used to, I was bullied by the obaasans at…

After 2 years and more, I’m finally, finally, got the guts again to click these buttons and press these keys giving you an update about life here, in the Land of the Rising Sun. Japan. Yes, actually I almost forget how my life back in the Philippines was. If you would ask me a year ago, I really, actually, honestly would wish that I (never) hadn’t decided to listen to my parents’ family friend, and instead pursue that strong and independent self of mine rather than being an obedient child. I wanted to go back to my comfort zone. If…

Spotted some cheap food find at Singapore’s luxurious Changi airport. When there’s a flock of people lining up, it’s either cheap or delicious or both, hence the food we dugged up at this grand airport!  It includes a cup of Kopi (as said in the receipt), hot and crispy Kaya Toasts with Butter & 2 Soft Boiled Eggs, for 5SGD ONLY from Wang Cafe in Terminal 2, Departure area. It’s not cheap with conversion to peso, but it’s cheap enough compared to other food stalls.    As you can see, it has a generous amount of kaya spread equaled with…

Whatever time it is, I always can’t say no to wings. So I guess it is not so impulsive of me to say yes to #TeamAldouson4 blog event 4th year anniversary!! Wooohooo! Also, another way to reward myself on a Saturday night after my long hours of work, is to eat chicken wings and participate on a quiz night! You headt it right! Wings with lots of flavours to choose from! I wanna try everything but of course I couldn’t in one sitting. So, absolutely there will be a next time and a next time and yes, a next time….

My love for events and photography took me to something more than what I expect when I replied to an email sent from the BED (Branding, Environment and Design) Department of Task Us PH and passed the interview. Thus, led me to becoming a ‘Shutterbug’. Shutterbugs are those people currently employed at Task Us PH (in any sites) whom are willing to work extracurricularly with the BED Team when there’s an event or activity that needs extra hand/s.  The first event that I actually am excited to join as a shutterbug was when I read in my inbox, “PAMPANGA FOOD…

July 29, 2017 was a celebration of City Garden Hotel’s Re-launching of its ENCIMA Roofdeck Restaurant which features bottomless everything. I know, I know you’re quite excited as I am so without further ado, I present to you what this night is all about! I find the place very entertaining while overseeing Makati’s skyline. Along with Mexican hats, there was a nice table setting where they put a square container at the center of the table which at first we had no idea. And poof! Just like Coco crunch, it revealed that it’s for the in can drinks, beers, placed…

A cold and slightly rainy evening feeling blue. I went straight to a newly opened place called AFTER ALL. A cool ambiance and with the live band, it will ease your blues away. It’s not a party place but a place to dine and chillax and AFTER ALL enjoy listening to the music as well as your friends’ company.   What I’m surprised about was that the name of the resto I thought it was a dessert place, I don’t know, but it somehow gave me that feeling oh well it’s just me. However I was inform by the owners…

Finally the new healthy fix as you like! A clear menu board for reference on what you’ll gonna order. Everything is listed! They have many a la carte to choose from if you don’t have any idea on what to order. As a first timer I was a bit confused if I’ll gonna try their a la carte or I’ll have it DIY. So I asked if I could replace the topping to another in their a la carte menu but saddly they said no. Anyway the staff were very polite and accommodating, a plus point. So I opted back…

Yes it’s a weekend! What do you wanna do? Drive to South and stop by Alabang Town Center to try out a quality and fun dinning experience at SOBAN K-TOWN GRILL. I am really in the mood for some meat grilling action tonight. It was a busy scene for Soban because diners were full pack and there were also line outside when I came. So because we have a sposored reservation no need to wait for my tummy! I was introduced with the owners and found them so accomodating and very friendly. They ask me questions while we were waiting…
