About Me

10 BASIC THINGS 

Three years ago, I blogged about “10 Real Facts About Me”. Since I wrote almost the entire Everything About Me in there, this is just a breathing space of the Basic things about myself.

1. My most favorite food is steak whether it’s a Sirloin or a T-Bone, or Tenderloin, medium done. Whenever I’m out to dine, I would always choose Steak as my first option in every Restaurant.

2. I love taking photos but I don’t post selfies on a regular basis except on special occasions like Birthdays, Anniversaries, Christmas Holidays or whenever I’m on vacay in the Philippines with my family. Idk, it’s just that I don’t like my face to be always visible in everyone’s homepage every day, the same as I get easily annoyed by random friends who are posting their day to day photos and the things they do for no reason at all, I’m more likely to unfollow them.

3. Coffee shops- I could not consider myself as a coffee addict. Why I like coffee shops like Starbucks, Caribou, Coffee Bean and the others is to have my moment of silence. I’d love to sit outside the coffee shop, alone or with friends, kill some time, put on my earpads and listen to music, browse on the net while looking around. I could stay there alone for hours coz this is my way of relaxing and meditation, especially during my irritable days.

4. People think I’m snub at the beginning. But I guess when you get to know the real me, you might also change your thoughts about me, haha! It’s just that I value personal space and privacy more than anything else and I don’t open my life easily to anyone except for those who are really close to me. I’m minimalist to people. I prefer to be with a few people. I enjoy being with a large group of friends outdoors but I only confide to few especially my personal life. Like the Bible Quote: “Do not tell your left hand what you’re right hand is doing…”

5. I have standard patience due to my OC problems. But I could be easily comforted too.

6. Huge Fan of Queen- One of the greatest Band ever lived. Music is the only thing that could easily divert my mood from being happy to sad to melodramatic, to sentimental.

7. I don’t splurge on anything. But I do pamper myself at times but only on things I could afford. Smart buying at it’s best. I have this mentality to “Live within my means”. I don’t pretend I’m a “can afford” when it’s really not in reality. For me, the kind of showing-off and bragging whatever material things they have, whether money or accessories, are just people craving for attention.

8. Just like everyone else, I crave for attention, validation, love, and acceptance from the people I love. Do not ever reject me or I’ll crack up and flip out, hahaha!

9. I’m not super thin, and in fact, my figure changes from time to time, from chubby to skinny and vice versa. I guess it comes from the family that’s why I do keep track of what I eat and do regular exercise. Another thing is, I eat very little (not because I’m watching my diet but because I get full easily), but I still don’t get to that super skinny thing even how little my food intake.

10. And finally 10, hmmm, what else? My Favorites!!! My favorite brand of clothes, bags & accessories and shoes are Esprit, Mango, Nine West, Forever 21, H&M, and yeah, underwears from Bench, my fave cologne is from Victoria Secret, my fave chocolates are M&M & Reese.

I never think about buying super expensive brands as I would rather keep the money for something important. Oh well, maybe if I get super rich! But since we are just a little over the standard-class people, then I should better live like that.

BRAZIL GRILL & LOUNGE

Blog it with Chesca

My Birthday wish list starts and ends with you…but since you weren’t here, then I might as well enjoy it with my friend, Nicole.

The second night of my week-long Birthday celebration.  I have been to one of the coolest bars I’ve ever been, Brazil Lounge, which is familiar with all you can eat and drink dining. Salad, barbecue grills, seafood grills, chicken grills, sweets all in one.

It isn’t my first time in the restaurant as we used to go here with my Monday Club/friends for about twice or thrice already, but it is my first time on the bar upstairs.

Cozy dim-lit bar. I liked the traces of orange in a slightly-lit bar.

We had a pitcher of frozen lemon and strawberry margarita and wine.

Plus they gave us this free 2 shots of Brain damaged.

With this exquisite mouth-watering scrumptious meal, ( well, that ’s how I…

TAGAYTAY

Although I have been to Tagaytay several times since childhood, I haven’t had much of the photos taken aside from the time that cam phone is available.
It was three times in succeeding three different years of my vacation when I and my family visited the place, other times just passing by to have lunch.
Tagaytay is a popular holiday town south of Manila on the Philippine island Luzon. Known for its mild climate, it sits on a ridge above Taal Volcano Island, an active volcano surrounded by Taal Lake. Overlooking the area, People’s Park in the Sky occupies the grounds of a never-finished presidential mansion. Picnic Grove is a recreation area with trails and a zip line.

BACOOR

While on our way to Tagaytay, we had a quick pass to Cavite for Lunch. I never get to see the rest of Cavite but just a quick half day around the area.

We had lunch in Bacoor named Kainan sa Balsa which is a floating restaurant with Bamboo rafts that serves mostly Filipino food.

UAE

I’ve been to UAE (Sharjah and Dubai) for about 4 times now. Once in 2010, in 2011, 2012 and 2015 aside from my few times lay-over when traveling back to BH. 
But it was on my trip in early 2011 when I get the chance to explore the place like visiting the Tallest Building in the World, Burj Al Khalifa- the 7-star hotel, Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, The Madinat Jumeirah, the chance to swim in Wild Wadi waterpark and Jumeirah Beach, experienced the dinner at the  Dhow Cruise,  Enjoyed the Dune bashing adventure at the desert Safari along with bbq grill and fire live show later plus camel riding,  went to Atlantis the Palm-Dubai and a lot of walks and explore within the City.


It was in 2010 when I went to the Aquarium.

2012 Trip (Just a day in Dubai)

But I only got the chance to see the Dancing Fountain and the night view of the Burj Khalifa at the Center Downtown Dubai in 2015.

Oops…I didn’t get to capture the fountain since I traveled by myself at this time with my not-so-good phone cam.


QATAR

I’ve spent one of my birthdays in Qatar a few years ago. It’s like I went there for a Weekend only, meet an old Colleague in her place and some Highschool friends and visit the Villagio Mall.

This was a photo taken near my friend flat.
And the rest was spent in the mall.

 

JAPAN

I’ve been to several Cities in Japan particularly in Hiroshima where I stayed for months during my two trips in the Country. Moreso, I’ve visited a few Historical heritages like the Atomic Bomb Dome, the Shukkeien Garden, Hiroshima Castle and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Stadium among others (side trips from Hiroshima, like Fukuoka, Miyajima and Iwakuni) but I haven’t had a lot of pictures taken and  I’ve lost some (my mistake) of the few hard copies I’ve kept while the remaining others s weren’t scanned yet.
Hiroshima has a bustling downtown area, the main feature of which is Hondori Street. Hondori is a pedestrian arcade that is closed to traffic and lined with shops and restaurants. It starts near the Peace Park and stretches east about half a kilometer. Running parallel to Hondori is Aioidori (Aioi Street), the main street used by cars and trams. Along Aioi Street stand a few large department stores where more shopping can be found.



Here are the few of my photos taken in Japan.

Tbh, I’m really glad that I had the chance to visit Japan and up to this date, this is still one of the best Countries I’ve been to. The Country is very clean, Everything is almost high technology, the people are very polite, shy, formal, intelligent, very disciplined in everything, minimalist, and workaholic, you would actually adopt some of their norms while living in the Japanese culture.
