Wish List / Dream Board

By on December 14, 2015

So my birthday has passed and there’s only Christmas to look forward to [in terms of gifts]. And old mature (or not 😛 ) as I now am, I still do like having something to look forward to. I mean, the occasion itself has already lost its magic for me, so.. but that’s another entire topic which I have no intention of discussing right now.

Anywho. I have made a couple of wish lists before (this and this), and thankfully I did end up actually getting at least an item or two from those listed. Nice, right? 😉 So this year I am making another one. Although this one kinda doubles as a dream board too since I do plan on getting these eventually, wish or no. Ready?

Francine’s First Field Trip

By on November 24, 2015

112515 field trip

So Francine’s first educational field trip was a success. It wasn’t all smooth sailing and several times throughout the day we bickered (mostly when she wanted me to carry her–she’s not exactly light) but still, we managed to get home both in one piece and in peace. She had fun and learned new stuff, and that’s what matters. 🙂

Oh, and I’m so proud of her discipline in curbing her shopping impulses, especially in the midst of all those toys and trinkets. No tantrums when I told her I wasn’t buying her those eye-catching but flimsy plastic toys. But I told her I’ll get her souvenirs and she could choose the design she wanted. So we got her a souvenir shirt from Manila Zoo and a stuffed purple sea horse from Manila Ocean Park and that’s that. Not bad for a four-year-old kid. 😉

Coffee Shops in Batangas, Part 1

By on June 2, 2015

Being the land of kapeng barako and all, there is no shortage of cafés and coffee shops all over Batangas. And while I am admittedly and certifiably caffeine-addicted, even I have not tried them all. What with new ones opening up here and there like those burger joints, my system and wallet could only take so much. Still, trying them all out at least once is an on-going project of mine. I mean, that’s coffee, dude. Coffee.  My addiction, lifeblood and all.

But enough chit-chat. Eschewing the ubiquitous commercial coffee shops (Starbucks and the like), here are three of my favorites (you may click on the coffee shop names to get redirected to their official web or Facebook page):
