A light appetite post yoga class brought us to Larcy’s in BF. It’s a rare thing for the kiddo to just ask for a sandwich for dinner. Usually we end up in Starbucks when she’s in this kind of mood, and she’ll have a corned beef pandesal, so it’s nice to have a new go-to … More Sandwiches and cupcakes at Larcy’s
The existence of this mall confirms that SM City Bicutan is the worst SM in the south. It also tells me that there’s much to be appreciated in an SM that isn’t the size of a small country. It’s got everything you need but feels like a neighborhood mall – it’s cozy, it’s homey, and … More Hello, SM Southmall

But as … More #embracingthesouth: thoughts of a new south girl
