Peri-peri: Perfect Charcoal Roasted Chicken

It is always a joy to discover a new restaurant in the city. You can say hello to Peri-peri as this restaurant brings your favorite chicken to a whole new level. They serve flavorsome chicken dishes using their completely unique spices -- Piri piri, “a very hot sauce made with red chilli peppers” (Oxford dictionary) that originates from Africa. They marinate the chicken for 24 hours and charcoal-roasted to perfection to ensure that the chicken served will truly delight and will keep the customers coming back for more.

#HowHardDidAgingHitYou Challenge + How to Age Gracefully in 10 More Years

#HowHardDidAgingHitYou Challenge + How to Age Gracefully in 10 More Years

#HowHardDidAgingHitYouChallenge How Hard is it, really?

I see friends posting in Facebook their photos taken in 2009 and 2019. The 10 year challenge is fun to see how most aged/developed into the best version of themselves. I am somewhat skeptical to join the bandwagon because I read somewhere that the photos might be used to test AI for face recognition. Memes are nice but sometimes we give too much information about ourselves.  

I would like to think that I am aging gracefully and I still feel flattered when people think that I look younger than my age. I guess that is one of the cons of looking matured when I was in my teens.

#HappyNewYou My Go-To Place to Shop for Pampering Products: Watsons


Life lately is all about keeping and doing things that spark joy. 

I am greatly influenced by living minimally, and Marie Kondo has been a big help in this transition. I love that more and more people are finding joy in keeping their things organized after the release of Netflix Series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. 

Keeping things that spark joy is one of my goals and I applied the same in my body and everyday lifestyle.  Taking care of my body is in the top of my list as this would help me achieve my other goals in life. 

My go-to place for shopping for everything I need is Watsons. I always love Watsons for it has everything I need from body care, hair care, health and even cosmetics. I always go to Watsons to buy my travel essentials.
