R&R: Spas Within The Metro That Are Worth Your Money

If I am to identify just one guilty pleasure of mine, it would be having a relaxing, much-deserved body massage. I remember going to a spa bi-monthly for a dose of R&R because… why not? Lol.

Personally, I prefer Swedish massage services. Sometimes I go for a combination of Swedish and Shiatsu or try other massage services for the experience but for most times, I go for my favorite choice. Continue reading “R&R: Spas Within The Metro That Are Worth Your Money”

Ang Paraiso ng El Nido, Palawan

Booked almost a year ahead, I flew in to the most beautiful island in the world with few to zero expectations. And I think that’s what made this trip even more spectacular.

Our 5-day trip to El Nido, with a side trip to Puerto Princesa, was such an amazing experience. I am honestly lost for words the moment my eyes met the island of El Nido. And we haven’t even gone to the best ones yet.

2016 Recap: It’s a wrap!

Before the year ends, let’s go back to all the places I’ve been to for the year that has been. I may not have been able to finish all entries yet (or might decided not to write one for [a] certain trip/s), but here’s where my trusty flip flops and I has gone about.

PS: Okay. My flipflops didn’t actually go with me to every trip, but yeah. You get the point. Haha.

January 21, 2016, I promised..

Almost two years ago, I met two wonderful ladies on different occassions; one through a friend, and the second one through the first one I met through a friend. Are you following?

Scribbles and Watercolor

Everybody’s gotta start at level zero when learning to do something for the first time.

I have been fond of appreciating artworks such as paintings, sketches, writings, films and the list goes on since I don’t recall. Sometime in 2015, the sudden boom of creating art via adult coloring books, calligraphy, hand lettering and watercolor paintings happened. Continue reading “Scribbles and Watercolor”

Exploring Iloilo: Isla Gigantes Inland Tour

If there is one thing I do not enjoy doing, it’s riding motorcycles. But no, I didn’t have a choice today.

Our host from Rosewood Place Resort offered us the in-land tour upon arriving at Isla Gigantes. The tour would let you go to the destinations of your choice using, yep you guessed it, motorcycles or habal-habal as transport. I was never comfortable in riding motorcycles given that there has been a lot, and I mean A LOT, of motorcycle accidents mentioned on the news every day. And I’m just not comfortable, period.

Lettering 101

When was the last time you tried something for the first time?

Today, I had my first ever hand lettering session with my friend and officemate, Cye.

Cye started her lettering journey few years back, 2014 if my memory serves me well. We met through a common friend during halloween last year. It was only during mid of this year when I learned that she’s doing calligraphy and hand lettering. Since I was into learning the craft and joining workshops was a struggle for me due to my erratic work schedule, I was psyched when I saw her post on her Facebook page that she offers lettering classes for beginners.
