Coming home to the Philippines this time around was different. This time my family spent it in Cebu and Bohol, provinces that I used to just pass by but never had enough time to look around. It was like being a tourist in my own country and each turn amazed me once again. In the […]

Friendships in Barcelona

October 12, 2014

For the many times that I have been to Barcelona, it was always primarily to visit my best friend Manel.  But with each trip I find more reasons to come back as I start to build familiarity with the people I meet and the people who makes each visit worthwhile.  Let me tell you the […]

Helsinki on-the-run

One of the best things my sister Ayen has done when she planned our Singapore trip was to have a long lay-over at Helsinki, Finland.  Having 10 hours to burn, it gave us time to leave Finland’s Vantaa airport and explore nearby Helsinki on-the-run.  It was very possible to do so as the airport was […]

This month I travelled to Singapore to attend a family reunion.  This year happened to see my mom’s 70th birthday, my niece Erika’s and my nephew’ Jeremy’s graduations.  Two of my sisters, Ayen and Ishy, decided these were very good reasons  for a get-together.  They both planned 8 months in advance.  Yes!  That much foresight […]

This past month I had the full intent to take it easy and slow down. Me being me, that did not really happen as my days in Europe were jam-packed with things I thought was necessary for me to do. The first week I have spent in Rome (click on link to see my Rome […]

When in Rome, eat good gelato like Romans do

The foodie lesson that I most used after the Eating Italy Food Tours in Rome was how to spot a good gelateria in Rome.  Our guide Domenico Scola saved the best for last and sat us down outside Gelateria Giolitti a Testaccio before we indulged.  He made us understand that the gelato industry was big […]

After discovering that there are such things as food tours 2 years ago after a trip to NYC, I always make a point of researching food tours when I travel.  After almost two years of being grounded, I finally have my chance to visit Rome.  Easily googled, I discovered Eating Italy food tours in Rome.  […]

Royal Sulu Civet Coffee Shoot

My childhood summers were mostly spent in a big island south of the Philippines called Mindanao.  Slow and comfortable way of life, where people stop and greet each other in the streets, children playfully climb on trees and the beach was a hop and skip away.  With this simple everyday life, I do remember my […]

Childhood Memories and Cravings

November 27, 2011

I found myself unexpectedly home in Manila after I heard of my father’s passing. I have been away for so long and the onslaught of childhood memories went careening the moment I landed in Manila. Much have changed in the city where I grew up. Old landmarks were lost, replaced by weaves of overpasses, bridges […]
