When I was thinking about creating my own website earlier this year, I knew for certain I wanted to include a section where I can write about the books I've recently read and enjoyed. The problem was I wasn't really reading as much as I used to when I was younger. Ther...

In the Philippines, it is common to have hot pan de sal for breakfast with coffee or hot chocolate. I remember my sleepy school-day mornings would start with Mama yelling we're late, but it wasn't her motherly ways that woke me up, but (the dreadful cold shower and) so...

Even though, I had become somewhat better at mixing colors with the only acrylic medium I could find in Dubai, I still have so much practice to do to improve my strokes. But I guess the point is not to make it perfect, but to enjoy the process. After all, it's supposed...

I was amazed when I found out JK Rowling lost her first female novelist billionaire status because of her charitable works. These include writing three (3) books for charitable organizations, Lumos and Comic Relief. Making these companion volumes to the Harry Pott...

In any Filipino gathering (birthdays, Christmas, New Year, and town fiestas) or at any Filipino restaurant, you will most likely find leche flan as part of dessert. It's an all-time favorite and a perfect way to end a savory, special Pinoy meal. Growing up, I'd beg my...

The HR Team and I had breakfast at Fumé Neighborhood Eatery in Downtown Dubai. It was the boss' way of also thanking us for a job well done lately. 

What's my discovery?

The interior and overall design is rustic with lots of wood, use of c...

I only learned how to bake red velvet cupcakes because one of my best friends really love it. Instead of buying these ridiculously priced ones in Dubai, I thought I might just give it a try in the kitchen. So far, it's been highly requested by friends and colleagues....

Rats! 2020 really threw a huge curve ball no one saw coming (except, of course, for the scientists and epidemiologists). 

Nothing much to share at this time. What's important now is we: 

   Stay home. 

   Wear a mask.

   Practice social distancing. 

   Stay safe. 

We will get to see the world soon, my dear friends.
