December 2018 Blog Roundup + Welcoming 2019

Hola, amigos! Feliz Pascuas y Prospero Año Nuevo. 🙂 Sorry! I’ll be writing in full English starting now. It’s just that I’m spending a lot of time with my relatives and the main language is Chavacano which is making me confused at times. Should I answer in Filipino or Chavacano? Anyway, I’m glad to be writing this entry on New Year’s Eve because I get to take a very short break from all that! Moving on! Do you remember the last thing I said on my November 2018 Blog Roundup + December Plans? Just a recap: My November was full on bad but it ended great which made me very hopeful and thus, leaving this statement. “Let’s see where December takes me.” I am happy to report that my December is/was great and I intend to bring the good things over to 2019. It has been a very long time since I felt that kind of joy. I literally went with the flow and I enjoyed every moment. For more than 10 years, I guess, …

November 2018 Blog Roundup + December Plans

Hello friend, Clari here! Happy December 1st. I hope you’re doing well. As mentioned in my October 2018 Blog Roundup, November is my blog and my birth month. We did a short giveaway wherein we raffled a bottle of Premium Dessert Wine. The winner has been  announced on my Instagram Story yesterday and I also commented on the Instagram post of the said giveaway. To be honest, I was quite disappointed by the turn out. I wasn’t able to properly promote the giveaway as I had a family emergency a few days after launching the giveaway. That was on November 19th, my blog and my birthday. I ran it for 11 days because it signifies the 11th month. Moreover, I had some promotions lined up as well as some small giveaways on the side. Sadly, I wasn’t able to run them as mi abuelita suddenly got weak and had to be confined. But she’s a bit fine now and we’re at home all thanks to God and the doctors as well as nurses at the …

October 2018 Blog Roundup + Our Birthday Month

Hello friends, Clari here! October was such a productive month for me as I was able to film with two of my friends from FoodieViewsPH – Mita and Elaine. The video is up on my YouTube Channel and we featured the Bread & Brew Fest 2018. In line with this, I also posted Blogger’s Note: Bread & Brew 2018, International Coffee Day + Announcements! I mentioned there that I will feature a series of coffee and tea shops I discovered and rediscovered. There’s Dark Specialty Coffee and Gong Cha at SM North EDSA plus Malik’s Cafe located at Congressional Tower Center. Besides these, we also have a What’s That? Where’s That? Post – Katsukichi’s Tonkatsu and 500 Imari Ware Sobachoko Wall Display. This is one of the restaurants Charlie, our friend from FoodiViewsPH visited during her trip to Japan. We hope you also get the chance to read that. By the way, were you able to watch BUYBUST? What are you thoughts on director Erik Matti’s latest masterpiece? I know my review is quite late …
