VISITING OZ, MATE! This has to be one of my humblest experiences so far. Immediately after I disobeyed God, my boss called and said, “You’re going to Australia.” I was so overhelmed that after I hung up, I had to stop what I was doing, closed my eyes and took a few minutes to thank God & say sorry. 

I’m still amazed (though I know I shouldn’t be) by how much He blesses me, even if I don’t deserve it & constantly fail Him. But His blessings are not based on what I do or who I am but it’s just in my Father’s nature. I have a generous God who withholds no good thing from me (mayaman si Papa!) Of course, this doesn’t mean I can just ask for a Maserati or a gazillion dollars but He definitely gives me more than I ask for or need (have you ever heard me complain that I’m dying of hunger?!)

Whether I have much or little, I am blessed.

Thank you Lord for this new, learning experience (& that my visa application only took 4 days, multiple entry). It wouldn’t be possible if not for You.

Psalm 84:11

Best news

THIS IS THE BEST NEWS I COULD EVER SHARE TO ANYONE.

That Christ paid for our sins through the cross so we could live holy, fruitful & victorious lives! Accepting Him as my personal Saviour & Lord was the best decision I have ever made!

I can’t boast of my love for Him but I can boast of His unending, perfect love for me (& for you too!)

All we have to do is ask Him to come into our lives, & He…

The Manor’s Mocha Coffee

The Manor’s Mocha Coffee

During a weekend in Baguio, we stayed at The Manor. Buffet breakfast was good, the gardens were lovely and the place has a cabin feel to it that makes you want to sleep all day. But what I truly enjoyed was their Mocha Coffee. On a particularly rainy day, I had the urge to just be alone with my thoughts and with my God. So I went to the hotel’s restaurant, sat on a table overlooking the pine…

Amare la cucina

20140711-224511.jpg

My sister insisted we eat at Amare la cucina located in Baguio because she swears by it. She was right. Food was absolutely fantastic. Pizzas are baked in a brick oven, servings are huge and ingredients are fresh. Pizza and pasta were perfectly cooked and tasted great – just the right amount of savor. We had their ham and cheese pizza and red pasta with bacons. I can’t remember their names…

Maple in Alabang

One Saturday morning, I met up with my sis to have breakfast at one of her favorite café restos – Maple. Aside from their Alabang branch, they also have one in Shangrila Mall. My sister discovered it by accident and since then has loved the quaint and homey resto. Only a handful of people can fit in their resto which makes it even more attractive. We arrived early morning, around 7am I think so…

Donate your hair

OFF WITH HER HAIR. Then donate it for a cause. Basically, you cut your hair according to their guidelines then ship it to them. I was actually concerned they wouldn’t accept my permed and colored hair but they said it was ok!

If you don’t want to shell out on shipping fees, you can give your hair to any Papemelroti branch. I gave mine to their Megamall branch. Just place your secured, tied hair…

Vacationista: Nagoya, Japan (Day 6: Going home)

Vacationista: Nagoya, Japan (Day 6: Going home)

Since this day is basically our travel-back-home day, we didn’t want to go far from our route, even though we had a 9pm flight. We took our time checking out from the hotel, left our luggage at the hotel concierge then had lunch at the sushi bar I wanted to try, conveniently located at the Nagoya station. The famous rotating sushi bar is a must-try in Japan! I love, love, love their sushi! So…

Vacationista: Nagoya, Japan (Day 5: Kanayama Area/ Aeon Mall)

Vacationista: Nagoya, Japan (Day 5: Kanayama Area/ Aeon Mall)

I really try my best to visit supermarkets whenever I go abroad because I love grocery shopping. I can spend hours in a grocery store, reading labels and looking for new products. Haha! So for today, we actually went back to Osu in the morning, had lunch there then went to Kanayama to find their huge (biggest I think) supermarket. From the station, we rode their shuttle bus for free and found…
