Memories, Meetups & Mangoes at Mario's

Memories, Meetups & Mangoes at Mario’s

Last Thursday I was invited to my first ever foodie/blogger’s event by a longtime online pal. At first, I was hesitant because I don’t know anyone who would be there, and also because I haven’t really validated ToT’s position as much of an influence to be hobknobbing with seasoned bloggers who know much more than...

Sublime Sea Scape

My Roomie sent me this link. I don’t think she understands the magnitude of all those amazing underwater creatures as well as its emotional link to all divers. It’s like Palau or Tubbataha reef, but all in one big tank! Whale Sharks, Manta Rays, Sharks, and all the creatures that drive us to save up for dive...

Happy Pills, Roomie Reunion and A Need for Tagline Suggestions (Updated)

Ok. Let me tell you about my roommate. Chants was my roommate/classmate back in our college days in Malibu. We would have the same classes, and I kinda thought she was cool because we had the same vibe. Studious (really), same build/dress choices, well-traveled and exposed, a tad snooty, and knows how to gulp down...

Expressamente by Illy in T3!

Waking up at 4am is a total drag. Waking up at 4am to get to a 620a flight is just plain mean, unless it is a trip that involves diving. That’s what I’ve been doing every two weeks, is get up before the crack of dawn to do a day business trip to Cebu and...

Walking Carlos Celdran’s Way

This week was ToT Tourguide Week. After the Holy week madness and much needed relaxation, it was back to more adventures in Manila to educate my US-born cousins of their own heritage aka Being “Pinoy”. If you have relatives who live in the states and are first-gen Fil-American cousins, you know that self-identity is a major...

Easter weekend has come and gone. I’ve had a pretty active  few days to celebrate the Bunny Day, as well as to play host to my aunt Joy and 2 teen cousins who are here for our grandmother’s 85th birthday. The Itinerary looked like this: 03.25-28 – China 03.31-04.03 – Baguio 04.04 – Anilao (to...

Easter Treats from my Tooth Fairy AND my Dentist

On the same day as my arrival from my Palau Dive Trip, my parents arrived from a short US trip. They met up with my aunt, aka ToT’s Tooth Fairy, responsible for my out of this world goodie stash, as well as my existing and pending root canals Of course, she never forgets to send me something even...
The China Mullet: Business in the Front, Foodie in the Back

The China Mullet: Business in the Front, Foodie in the Back

The day I arrived from the Palau dive extravaganza, my passport was abruptly taken from me so that I could get a China visa for a business trip to happen a few days later. I was excited because my newly acquired aubergine Pasaporte is getting the wear and tear that the two green ones stapled to it have...
Palau Dive Diary Finale

Palau Dive Diary Finale

This is going to be a good one… Since I woke up with a view of a jet-skier from inside my room, allow me a moment of pure delusionary bliss. On to our last few hours before leaving the beautiful island that is Palau… It’s been a crazy four days of diving, sharks, turtles, blue...
