Music monday (on a wednesday): Help me out.

I haven’t heard of a new song from Maroon 5 for a while now (although I may just have been out of the music loop for years), so when I saw this track a few weeks ago on Spotify, I decided to give it a play–and I really liked what I heard. It fits well…

Let’s cook! Bistek Tagalog

I’m making lunch today and I had a thought to document the process. Bistek Tagalog is one of my absolute favorite Filipino dishes, and it’s very simple to make yourself so that’s a huge bonus. Now, I don’t remember where I got the recipe that I use. It’s been a note in my phone for…

Music monday: Helium.

I first heard of this song when my best friend played over Spotify during a drive. I asked what the title was and who sang it, and made a mental note to check it out later on. I found the lyric video on Youtube, and I’m just fell in love with the track even more….

Cali galleries: In-N-Out.

These next 2 posts happened in the same day–my last tourist day in San Diego. If you want to check out the rest of this series, go ahead and click here. I spent two weeks in California meeting with family and friends, and being a tourist. This series documents this trip. Go ahead and check…

Music monday: START:DASH!!

So I spent the last week re-watching one of the most happy-go-lucky anime titles I’ve ever watched–Love Live! 😆 It’s a very entertaining show, and since it deals with being school idols (pop groups from certain high schools), there are a lot of super catchy songs. This one is the first one performed in the show,…

New books from #MIBF2017.

September 13 – 17 was this year’s Manila International Book Fair at the SMX Convention Center. It’s the biggest book event in the country, and I’ve never been able to check it out because of how far it is to where I live. This year though, I managed to finally go with two of my…

Music monday: Saturday night’s alright (for fighting).

We’re throwing back again today, although not entirely? This song is a really catchy and upbeat track released by Elton John in the 1970s. The reason this post isn’t completely a throwback is that this has come to surface through Kingsman: The Golden Circle. In my last post I talked about how I watched this film…

Surf and Sea: Elyu Day 1.

It’s been a while since I went on a road trip (Tagaytay doesn’t really count because it’s only about 2 to 2 and a half hours away), so when I knew that a long weekend was coming up, I decided it would be a good time to go somewhere and take a break. It’s also…

Music monday: Too good at goodbyes.

Around 3 years after releasing his first album, Sam Smith is back with a new song and a new album to come soon. I’m not quite sure how to pin this track, to be honest. I think it’s a sad song, and it is, but at the same time it depicts strength? Although it seems…

I got nominated for an Award?!

So. I got nominated for an award called the Liebster Award. 😲 What this is is a chain internet reward that is passed on from one blogger to another. It is primarily awarded to newer blogs, or blogs that have a small following of around 200 or less. It is a way of recognizing new bloggers and…

Cali galleries: SeaWorld.

The reunion is finished, and my relatives have gone back to their home states, but like I said–my adventure isn’t over just yet. If you wanna catch up on the other posts in this series, go ahead and click here. In late March, my family and I spent about a week in California reuniting with…

Music monday: 1-800-273-8255.

I saw this song on Spotify and wondered what song has a number for a title, and whether or not the number was real. I didn’t get to hear the track fully until this morning, but it struck me, and I’ve listened to it about two more times since. This song tackles a very important…
