The Joy of Baking | Chocolate Chip Coffee Cookies

The Joy of Baking | Chocolate Chip Coffee Cookies

I first discovered the joy of baking when I was in College. Baking was part of my major subjects and I found joy and comfort in baking cookies and cakes. My parents even bought me a brand new oven to help me with the new "hobby" that gave me passing grades. 

Sadly, I never looked back at that hobby until recently. I thought I could always buy baked goodies (that saved me time and money). I recently revisited my old hobby,  baking a few months ago - maybe due to quarantine. Just like what most people did and discovered.

BRIA Homes Expands its Portfolio of Product Lines to Provide Homes to More Filipinos

BRIA Homes Expands its Portfolio of Product Lines to Provide Homes  to More Filipinos


 For Filipinos, the concept of home has always been close to the heart. We relate homes to happy days spent with family, to times when we realize our greatest hopes and dreams, and to moments when we feel most comfortable and secure. It is in our homes when we feel most vulnerable, but also most loved.

This is why for a lot of Filipinos, having their own home is the ultimate achievement—the best reward for all their hard work.

Safety Travel Tips for the New Normal


Safety Travel Tips for the New Normal


Hello.
It's been a while the last time I really write. Travel is the topic I really enjoy writing about in this blog; and due to the COVID-19 pandemic, travel or any movement was put into halt. But even if I am not writing or blogging, I found myself a new way to express myself, my art and my thoughts through other medium (like Livestreaming and videos) where I also talk about (my) travels. 

Just a few days ago, I shared with my viewers my travel to Samar where I first tried spelunking. It was one of my memorable travels - and I am so glad I did it.

From the Corporate World to Content Creation #JobsThatMatter

Jobstreet Brands That Matter

From the Corporate World to Content Creation #JobsThatMatter 

People who are of the same age as mine probably know who LINA is. 
Jobstreet's "assistant" that constantly sends us job matches, and never fails to greet us on our birthday. 

In celebration of its 25th year, leading online job portal JobStreet officially unveils its brand evolution, recalibrating the platform by empowering aspiring job seekers and employers with “jobs that matter.”

Unveiling its first-ever brand evolution, JobStreet highlights its mission to work with passion and purpose and its commitment to connect job seekers and hirers with what matters to them most. More than just directing jobseekers to a position or a hirer, JobStreet serves as a platform that connects people not only to jobs where their skill set is needed but also where they can pursue a meaningful career.

Php 1 per Movie via Upstream: #14on14


Php 1 per Movie via Upstream: #14on14 

I do missed going out on movie dates.

I missed the anticipation of watching the film while enjoying movie trailers, freshly popped corns and soda, and movie discussion about the story after the movie. But since cinemas are still off-limits due the Covid-19 pandemic, I just find joy at staying safe at home while recreating the movie experience. 

Here is something to get excited about if you are a certified movie buff. UPSTREAM, a Transactional Video on Demand (TVOD) platform created by Filipinos, for Filipinos. UPSTREAM has recently partnered with the country’s leading digital booking platform for on ground and online cinematic experiences, GMovies, to introduce a new and affordable viewing experience to Filipinos anywhere they are in the world.
