I’ve always loved arts and crafts. When I was in high school, I always looked forward to our crafts class, where it doesn’t feel like a class at all. We barely had any lectures, just instruction for our next project. We’d even play some music while we worked and it felt like we were all just playing.
I love the feeling when you finish a project. When you’re finally done, after hours of crouched on your work space (the floor for me, usually), and you can stretch out, look at your work and be proud of yourself for making something … Read More

How do you cook your corned beef? Probably with onions and/or potatoes? Well, I’m a garlic person, so I like to sauté it in a lot of diced or crushed garlic. Crushing the garlic makes the flavor come out more than if you just diced them. Unless, you don’t like that garlic lingering your breath, then you should just dice them. I also like adding some spices like oregano while my boyfriend prefers putting rosemary. But, either way, both will tickle your taste buds!
Taking the corned beef out of the pan, there are many ways you can eat it. … Read More

This is what we can see up the sky in Bangkok today.
For almost 4 months that had passed, Bangkok had never experienced real rain. I mean, there were series of rains before but they were all artificial rain. The feeling that, yah it had rained so heavily in the morning, but just after the rain stopped, the sun was up there heating us so strongly. It would still stay very hot even after a super heavy rain. It felt so unreal.
Starting last Saturday, it had been raining at least everyday. No matter what time is it during the … Read More

This is one of the simplest decorative I’ve ever seen. Look at it, at first glance it looks like merely some good decors, but hey those are purple, undecorated umbrellas. It’s just so nice that I really wasn’t able to resist taking picture of it. If I have a company with me, I should have posed there at the center. A couple of days before, I saw the crews unloading these umbrellas, I was just thinking maybe those were to be given as souvenirs or like a give-away thingy. But the next 2 days, I was just really amazed with … Read More

Zambales is the perfect place to go to when you’re itching to ride a wave. If you look at the map, it runs along most of the west coast of Luzon, giving you a lot of options where to stay when the waves come in. It’s about 5 hours travel time from Manila, by car.
You can, choose to stay in the more established resorts, like Crystal Beach Resort, but if you’re really looking for a cheap place, there’s a hostel in San Felipe that barely costs you 500php to stay in. Of course, there are other accommodations beside it … Read More
