It became a tradition to do a year-end dinner with the family. I was the taya, so I had the say on where to eat, ha! We ended up in The Royale Sharksfin Seafood Restaurant along Quintin Paredes Street, 3rd floor of Pacific Centre, here in Binondo. The last thing I appreciate in the restaurant is … Continue reading REVIEW: The Royale Sharksfin Seafood Restaurant
Marksmanship and archery are two things I always wanted to try but never got the chance to. Today, I got to experience it for the first time with my favorite people. We decided to shame ourselves at Arrowland by Gandiva at SM North Edsa. They have multiple packages that suit different sets of people that would range … Continue reading So this is what Archery feels like..
Remember the days when we spent a good time falling in line in the arcade, eagerly waiting for the previous player to finish his round of your favorite game? How about those moments when we get a good slipper punishment for sneaking out of the house during siesta time to play in that corner arcade? … Continue reading Your Childhood Nostalgia and More at Chiebog Food Park (PS: they have arcade machines!)
Out of the blue, it was a mutual decision for all of us to dine out. Part of which was because it's already quite some time when we last did but also because none of us wanted to cook that night as well. Like usual, we didn't want to be too far away from home … Continue reading REVIEW: Newly Opened Kenji Tei at Lucky Chinatown Mall
Taking an MA degree was part of my plan before I even finished my undergrad. This year, 3 years later, I had the guts to finally pursue it. I was initially torn between 5 great schools - UP-D, UP-M, DLSU, ADMU and UST. My choice became clear when I listed down 2 important things I needed … Continue reading I’m a TaMaroon now
Happy Father's Day, dad. I hope at least one of us is happy. I used to be the first one to greet you this when I was younger. But now it just hurts if I do. I wanted to write all sorts of happy memories we had like most of my friends do, but honestly, I … Continue reading (Not) Happy Father’s Day
There I said it. I've been meaning to do this for quite some years now, but I never fully commited myself to doing so till I had a recent reevaluation of how I'm living now. After ranting a post away from this one, I know I wouldn't be able to proceed without actually taking concrete steps. … Continue reading I’m Gonna Write a Book
Hey guys! Taking on the opportunity to shamelessly plug on the revamp of my planner shop: JournalsCo (initially on Etsy, now dead, rest in peace) to the changed name of @craftydiemph. This name comes closer to my heart as the idea came from the word "Carpe Diem" which is how I've been going on lately. For … Continue reading @CraftyDiemPH: Planner Shop Revamp!
My consistency in blogging is dying yet again. And worse is, I'm using my exhaustion from work as an excuse to slack off. Writing has always been my passion, but unlike others, I fail to consistently show that it is, indeed, something I love to do. Recapping the counter, I only wrote 2 on this … Continue reading The Old Habit
First off, I want to get it out there that I'm not a big fan of Korean food. I would even dare say that I actually dislike it. But today, my sister (who's been swallowed whole by the KDrama system) wanted to celebrate her birthday with Korean so I had to set aside my own … Continue reading Review: Feasting at Ye Dang Korean BBQ Restaurant
Gian is doing a home run to the country so he invited everyone for a quick staycation during the weekend, and while we had a very fun time making memories, it wasn't exactly as exciting due to our accommodating venue. I'm not all for the idea of negative thoughts on my blog, but it was an … Continue reading REVIEW: Staycation at Selah Garden
