New Monster in Manila | Monster Milkshake, Vertis North

Monster Milkshake Manila Vertis North


New Monster in Manila | Monster Milkshake, Vertis North

When I think of milkshakes, I think of retro and vintage diners and neon lights - maybe, staff in rollerblades, too!

I am not really a milkshake person but I do indulge in this deadly treats once in a while - especially if it calls for good, fun conversation with friends (very much like how we imagine our favorite characters in Riverdale). 


Falafel Yo!

Falafel Yo!  Review

Falafel Yo!  Greenbelt 3, Cinema

A man named Guy Mann grew up eating the Israeli treat called Falafel and wanted to bring the authentic flavor to the Philippines. 

There aren't many authentic Israeli  restaurants in Manila. Now, you can find one in Greenbelt 3, near the Cinemas. Just look for the sign Falafel, Yo!

New Ways to Wear Your Favorite Denim Pieces | Penshoppe Denim Lab

Denim is one of my favorite clothing pieces. I love them distressed, edgy and with spunk. My mom would always wonder why I always buy distressed, ratty looking denim pieces (and pay more for them).

Lipstick is the Weapon of Choice +  SM Lipstick Fest

Lipstick is always my weapon of choice. A single swipe from the trusty bullet is all I needed to face the battles in life.

New Pancake Flavors and Menu at the Pancake House, Vertis North

When things go crazy and our comfort zone is shaken, we always go for the familiar things. 

Last week, after an "eventful" day attending events (and before our day started for our journey to Zambales - more on that on a separate story), we visited the newly opened Pancake Store at Ventris North, Ayala Malls.

Gava Gives | How to Start a Crowd Funding Campaign & Raise Money from Strangers

Gava Gives Fund Raising

Gava Gives | How to Start a Crowd Funding Campaign & Raise Money from Strangers


While traveling makes me feel how small space I occupy in this world, giving makes me feel big about myself.

I oftentimes think that one need not a good job title under his/her name to make a difference in someone's life. I am fortunate to co-exist in such a giving environment - not because we have more than what we need but because I know what it feels to have nothing. I didn't grow up with everything that I need in my life.
