I Found My Grandfather’s Vintage Cameras

It was Father’s Day last Sunday. After visiting my abuelito at the memorial park, I suddenly had the desire to look at our photo albums. So I did and realised that no matter how many years have passed, the photos he took still lives. According to the date indicated in the album I picked, those photos were taken in the ‘80s. To be honest, everything looks beautiful and real. I’m glad my abuelita was very keen on keeping and arranging the photos. Advertisements

A Girl Who Wears Glasses

They call it eyeglasses, some call it specs but we simply know it as glasses. The magical frame-bearing lenses that let people with weak vision see the world clearly. Indeed, it’s a splendid invention but I never liked it and never even imagined myself wearing one. But the day I had to, came sooner than expected.

New Restaurant Alert: Bistro Charlemagne is worth the trip to Ayala Malls Feliz

I’m from the north which means Ayala Malls Feliz is within my reach; however, I do not live near the area even pass by it because I have no reason to. But after a great dining experience at one of the newest restaurant in that mall, I finally have a reason to visit the area again. The place is called Bistro Charlemagne, a concept by Little Asia. Does “Little Asia” sound familiar to you? Well, it should as it was a restaurant in Tomas Morato back in 2001. Little Asia (LA) gained popularity for its Asian fusion cuisine which led to the opening of three other branches located at Greenhills, McKinley Hill, and Lucky Chinatown Mall. Fast forward to early 2015, LA owner-manager Mr. Charlemagne Lim developed a new Asian-European fusion concept which he called Bistro Charlemagne. They opened their first branch at Ayala Malls Solenad 3 Nuvali. I haven’t been there but I heard good reviews about this bistro. So when I had the opportunity to visit their second branch, I grabbed the chance. …

Happy 5 Years. Here’s a Special Instagram Giveaway!

Hello friends! It’s been a long while since my last giveaway. I think it was August last year and that was just a simple one, not the usual “Inspire to Win” Anniversary Giveaway that always do on Facebook. I was quite busy with work, friends and life in general. I did; however, attended a number of FMUs or foodie meetups from June to September. But I stopped mid-month because I took a new job role. Thankfully I still get invites for events as well as products reviews. Where you able to see them? I’ve been quite active making videos on YouTube as well as on Instagram TV. They’re not a vlog style though. But who knows! Maybe I’ll do it in the near future. Going back, I really do appreciate those opportunities including the changes in my job. But I really miss meeting my fellow bloggers – old and new. So I told myself that whenever possible, I will grab the opportunity that comes my way. If it’s not, then let it go because it might …

#ShareTheScare with Krispy Kreme’s Halloween Doughnuts

Time for some treats this season as Krispy Kreme finally introduced their limited edition Halloween doughnuts. I actually passed by their nearest store to purchase a dozen. Unfortunately, all the Halloween doughnuts were already sold. So I decided to try their delivery service. Good thing I did because Krispy Kreme has an ONLINE PROMO! If you order any dozen for DELIVERY, you get a half dozen Original Glazed Doughnuts until Dec 31! Great deal, right? It’s perfect for parties, family gatherings or yourself! (We don’t judge here.) 🙂 What are you waiting for?! #ShareTheScare with Krispy Kreme’s limited edition Halloween doughnuts. They’re so tasty, creepy and cute! Too bad though as I didn’t get The Owl, The Ooze and The Pumpkin. But I did get the following: The Black Cat | The Scary Eye | The Brain | The Tombstone | The Orange Monster | Halloween Sprinkles Delivery | Facebook

BREAD & BREW, SM North EDSA’s coffee fest just wrapped up. The event which ran from September 10 to 30 treated mall-goers and coffee lovers to a unique coffee experience as the mall’s The Annex Event Area transformed into a coffee and pastry paradise.

Tom Sawyer’s Old Fashioned Krispy Chicken is Now In Quezon City

This is not a drill. The famous restaurant chain in the 80’s to early 00’s is back. After reopening its doors in 2014 at Tiendesitas – Pasig City, Tom Sawyer’s Old Fashioned Krispy Chicken is now open at Congressional Town Center – Quezon City. If you live near the area and grew up loving Tom Sawyer’s traditional southern style fried chicken, you will be able to taste them over and over again. 🙂 But this time though make sure to bring your whole family so they can try it, too. That’s what my uncle did! After alerting his friends (his friends went gaga), he took us there. As a 90s kid who grew up loving McDonald’s and Jollibee, I am not that aware of Tom Sawyer’s Old Fashioned Krispy Chicken. I don’t fully understand why they’re raving about it. But now that I got to try it, I understand and support their claim. 🙂 Are you ready to give it a try? You can grab a bite Congressional Town Center! 😀 They’re open from 6am …

Guilt-Free Snacks To Satisfy Your Taste Buds

I’ve been busy with work lately and I am so ready for the weekend. I’m actually planning a movie marathon this Friday night! Are you thinking of the same thing? Besides choosing which movie or series to binge-watch, make sure you also know which snacks to munch on. I know, I know. Eating a tub of ice cream sounds fantastic. A slice of pizza would be good, too. However, you will be hanging on the couch all day. Wouldn’t it be better to eat snacks that will not only give you energy but also satisfy your taste buds? Below is a list of guilt-free snacks I found at a one-stop shop for everything healthy: Oh So Healthy Fruit Crisps This product comes in three flavors: Mango Banana, Guava Purple Yam Banana and Purple Yam Banana Coconut. Not only are they made with 100% natural fruit, they’re also gluten free, vegan friendly, kosher, halal and has no cholesterol. Let me tell you that the said flavors are evident in each chip. It was very surprising and …
