Ban Be Ca Phe, Antipolo

Ban Be Ca Phe is a Vietnamese-Filipino restaurant located at Upper Antipolo. This charming space is just a few meters shy from Robinson’s Antipolo and offers very affordable Vietnamese dishes. The cafe, technically, has three parts: a veranda, and inside a dining area at the right side and a traditional Vietnamese sitting area on the left side, which, in my opinion,…

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,…

This blog was hacked!

That’s right! For a few hours, my beloved blog has been compromised by some Turkish hacker. I was informed by a friend via email that someone hacked my blog, so I went on to check it. To my dismay, it was indeed hacked; I panicked. I didn’t remember the last time I exported my entries or did an entire site…

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…

On a love that will always be…

We lived together for some time nearly two years ago, and during that time I learned more than to pick up myself from the ground, I learned the things that I want out of life. Today, you told me you’re gonna be a father. Funny how time flies. What we had was a fairy-tale sort of love story (in my…

To the Last Man I Dated

A photo appeared on my news feed this evening as my phone automatically connected to my home internet. I guess I forgot to remove you from my following list. You were standing right next to your ex-girlfriend, but it turns out, you’re back together and you’re getting married. I chuckled, shook my head, and thought: I was right all along.…

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…

On Forgiveness…

I haven’t thought of you in a while, but last night you popped into my dreams. For some unknown reason, you were there, smiling at me and holding my hand. We were in some sort of an old castle which kind of reminds me of Meatloaf on Anything for Love. There was some sort of a ball, and there was…

In my dreams…

‪I had a dream a couple of nights ago.‬ ‪I dreamed of you of all people I could dream about and I dreamed of a situation we always talked about when there are endless possibilities in what I could dream about. But instead, I dreamed of you and the child we always wanted. She looked an awful lot like you…
