Spikes and Flowers

The title of this post reminds me of the time I was part of our company outing's "Miss Aloha" beauty pageant. It was all spontaneous and just for fun, not a real pageant. During the Q&A, I got the question, "If you were a flower, what would you be and why?" So I answered, "I would be a rose with all its thorns - beautiful, but able to somehow protect itself from harm. Because I believe as a woman, beauty does not only lie on the outward appearance but also from within, and I choose to be beautiful with power and strength as well."

Ditch The Skirts and Dresses


Ever feel like taking a (fashion) break? Today, I'm taking a break from all the skirts and dresses.

Cebu Restaurants: Tazza Cafe and Patisserie


New restaurants have been sprouting up all over the Lahug area and you can't miss this quaint little cafe across Fujinoya. While the parking up front is very limited, you are allowed to park at the Tsai hotel's basement parking area. I've already visited Tazza Cafe and Patisserie twice. First on a Saturdate and next, because I was able to purchase a Groupon voucher (yey 50% off!).

Miss Pink

I was always a typical girly girl whose favorite color was pink. Back when I was a lot younger, I think I overdosed on pink as EVERYTHING just had to be pink, or purple, or something cute and pretty with butterflies on it. I don't know how it happened but over the years, pink has taken a backseat and I find that there are hardly any pink items in my closet now. And I miss it.

TRAVEL: Apo Island - Swimming with Turtles


Before the summer ended last May, we were able to squeeze in a trip to Dumaguete. On our second day there, we ventured off to Apo Island, Dauin, Negros Oriental, which is known as a good dive spot and is also famous for the sea turtles. To get there, you need to drive 1-2 hours from Dumaguete proper until you reach the drop off point where you can park your car, and ride a pump boat to the island. Fortunately, one of our friends lives in Dumaguete and booked the boat beforehand.
