There are many things to be grateful for today. And so despite my tired bones and sleepy eyes at this hour, I feel obliged to write them down lest they fade away into dreams.
Here’s the reality: I am blessed.
I just came from a whole-day yoga event called Global Mala Project Manila. I was supposed to be up and about by 10:30 am for the second class, but I ended up staying in bed a few hours more as a result of my long and sleepless week. (I must say, even that sleeplessness is a blessing in itself.) Continue reading →
In the past few weeks, I’ve been filled with a lot of tension. Due to recent life changes, endorphin boosts have been critical to my everyday sanity. Although there is always the option to drink it up and drown in bottles of wine or scotch, I find the latter impractical, not to mention really unhealthy.
We all go through something of this sort once in a while – challenging life phases, dark tunnels we can only get out of if we walk through them… It’s nothing new, really. Except that every time you’re in there – where you don’t know when the light will finally show up, with all your fears creeping in on whether it ever will – it always feels as bad as the first time.

MISSIONARIES OF CHARITY, ANTIPOLO CITY – I am one of those people who declutter my life as often as possible. I believe in simplicity. Once in a while I open my cabinets to check for things I don’t foresee using in the near future, and see which ones I could either give away or throw away.

If there is something there that I haven’t used in a few months, I assume that I probably never will so I pass them on to someone who is more likely to find value in it. Continue reading →
LE BLANC, ANTIPOLO CITY – Antipolo is filled with exclusive resorts that are often rented out for parties, reunions, and other such celebrations. Much like Laguna and Tagaytay, it’s just an easy ride outside of the main city and could serve as a quick escape to people wanting to take the weekend off without driving too far. Continue reading →
PINTO ART MUSEUM – Previously, I raved about how stunning I thought Pinto is, but I didn’t really show a lot of photos of the actual art inside. Although its exhibits may vary from time to time, here is a visual sneak peek of what was there this March 2013. Continue reading →
PINTO ART MUSEUM – I have lived in Antipolo since I was born. I’ve heard of Pinto maybe once or twice in my lifetime. What I didn’t know is that this place that people are talking about is a huge haven of art. I have never seen anything like it, and I’m quite surprised that it’s located right in the city where I live. Continue reading →
UNIVERSAL STUDIOS, SINGAPORE was certainly not in my itinerary. I went to Singapore early this year for one reason – to watch the Norah Jones concert. And so aside from that, my itinerary was filled with nothing but vague ideas and possibilities. Continue reading →
