    The One Where I Tried Casual Dating

    Before my husband and I got together, I’ve been single for four years. I’ve walked alone for years after my last relationship fell apart, but that four years of my life wasn’t without any trace of other men. I’ve admitted it before and I’ve written about some of the men I dated in this website. But I guess I never really talked about the time where I began dating men casually. Yes, I must admit, there was a time in my life where I thought of finally giving up on finding “the one” or getting involved in a marital affair. I admit that these were the times wherein I had…

    The Friend That Got Away

    It’s no secret that I’ve dipped my toes in the online dating pool a long time ago. It wasn’t like it was consistent or anything, to be honest, I’ve tried several dating apps and sites such as Match Me Happy but didn’t continue as I didn’t believe that something good would come out of online dating or meeting prospect boyfriends online. However, during that period of my life, I met a guy named Eddy — a Puerto Rican in New York, studying to be an engineer. We instantly became friends having the same interest in music and aesthetics in general but only a few weeks after meeting him, I stopped…

    Online Dating At Any Age

    In this golden age of technology, one might say that only younger people can benefit the most from the wonders brought by the internet. This, for one, is not true even in the world of online dating. Sure, dating apps and websites are only (statistically) used by people below 40, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be used by older generations. Senior dating is picking up its momentum recently, and the online dating world has never been the same since then. People who are older dating online is not as cringy as it may sound like. It might even be worth a few long “aww”s fr some people. One…

    Why Free Dating Sites Are Great

    We live in the time and age where we do practically everything virtually, and this is no phenomenon but I’m pretty sure the internet has been primarily invented for it. But perhaps, the internet is known to everybody as a ground for meeting new people making it one of the most successful methods of dating over the last 20 years or so. I was so curious about it when I was younger, so I tried it too just for the sake of knowing how it is like to meet strangers online in a romantic way that isn’t at all like meeting people on Craigslist. I guess I was just a…

    Coffee Book, Congressional Avenue

      Coffee Book is located along Congressional Avenue in Quezon City. I went there yesterday with some friends I met at Artsy Cafe. I met some new friends too and had a blast. The cafe’s interiors were more of a restaurant type than the cozy and comfy cafe type that I was expecting. But true to its name, they have two tall built-in shelves filled with books of various genres perfect for bookworms.    Now to the best part: FOOD. Coffee Book serves cakes, cookies, and muffins. They also serve snacks, pasta, and rice meals. As for beverages, they have (of course) coffee served hot or cold / over ice, milkshakes,…

    On caring for a reptile…

    It has been over half-a year since I last had a pet. My cat passed away in December, leaving me devastated. However, lately, I’ve been considering taking a pet in again but since pets are not exactly allowed in our apartment complex, I decided to look into a much quieter (and convenient) species for me to take home: Reptiles. However, taking care of reptiles is all new to me. Before I took Gomez (my cat) home, I’ve done tremendous research on cat-care and looked for vets and pet stores around my area. It was quite pricey to start with, but was helpful enough to keep my little love bug happy.…

    Artsy Cafe, Maginhawa

    Artsy Café is a lovely nook situated in the heart of the Maginhawa food district. Lavishly decorated in vintage pieces, it gives off a very retro-vibe to anyone who comes in and while themed cafés are common, especially in the stretch of Maginhawa, what sets Artsy Café apart from others is their menu and affordability. These are the dishes that we were able to sample when we visited: We were first served with Kani Salad, which costs only 195php. It may sound a common starter but it is actually pretty innovative. On top of the bed of fresh greens, mangoes, and nori is the deep-fried, shredded crabsticks drizzled with a…

    Hair Brush Straighteners

    I’ve always been a fan of straightening my hair. In fact, when I was a lot younger, I would ask my mom to straighten my hair because I wanted to look like Cher from the 70’s. (Please don’t judge, I’ m a HUGE fan.) But it wasn’t always easy cause for some reason after getting a perm at 13 (terrible idea!) my hair never grew the same way again which made it harder to straighten it. My mom would spend hours trying to fix my hair before I can go to school looking decent and without my hair flying in all directions due to a bad perm that damaged my…
