As an April celebrant, my daughter doesn’t get to do birthday parties at school. School’s out by the time her birthday hits. While my wallet rejoices at the thought, I also couldn’t help but feel sad somewhat. She should be able to experience a class birthday celebration at least once. Especially since she has become … More Happy 4th
Cebu. My only beef with you is you tend to send me home 10 lbs heavier. You’re impossible. On a trip last month to Cebu, I got to try Rico’s Lechon for the first time. I’ve never heard of it before, but it was 10 minutes away from the airport, and lechon for lunch in … More Cebu Foodtrip: Conching’s and Rico’s

Feeling emo-crappy the day before and barely getting any sleep, I wanted to be anywhere but my house. I decided to … More Bag of Beans on the fly
Nick Hornby’s About a Boy inspired my brother and I to go vegetarian. We loved that book so much we took turns reading it.

I don’t remember anymore how long he lasted … More Loving Corner Tree Cafe
