If faith can move mountains, what can true love possibly do? With fairy tales, we grew up believing that the kiss of true love breaks spells and even wakes those who have been put to eternal sleep. As a grown woman, I've felt love and have seen how love truly affects us who love deeply.
Love makes us do crazy things and it lets us do sacrifices for the people we love. Before I married my husband and even before we started dating when we were still just friends, I asked him, "Why did you come ho [..]

But since my hair is one tough cookie, ahem, like me, so for 20 years it has endured all the hydrogen peroxide and ammonia it could that it no longer really cares what gunk I put in it.

Because of several reasons, Noodle Boy and I were not able to go on a proper honeymoon after our wedding last year. There were just too many things happening after the wedding and adjusting into married life was taking so much of our time and yes, we had a baby soon after! To say it was a whirlwind of a first year is an understatement. Try a HURRICANE! But it was wonderful. I would not change a thing. We both grew to be the persons we are right now -- parents... of a delightful little big boy!

The best part about living in Ormoc City is not just simply being able to enjoy the sea breeze as expected from a coastal city city and all nor is it the cheap booze and the very affordable orgasmic foods available, it's actually going out at night and basking at the moonlight.
Big cities have tall towers and humongous buildings that block the moon and all its glory. Small towns like the one I live in don't. That's why when you look up the sky on a clear night, the moon always smiles down at y [..]

As the title suggests, clearly it wasn't flowers or chocolates (or the lack of) that surprised me during this year's Valentine's Day. When I was younger, so much more naive, and anorexic, my idea of Valentine's Day was stereotypical. Dinner date, cheesy cards, and shallow gifts that everyone else gets anyway. Still, the balloons that I got or the cakes that my sweet tooth enjoyed back then was considered a life experience.
The older I got, the more I thought about Valentines Day being a capital [..]

The little island girl in me is screaming for more! A photo of this near-yet-so-far island haunts my dreams and I have so long wanted to see the island for myself. Ever since a dear friend, Rica Serafica-Torres went to Guam for an apprenticeship after going to culinary school, admiring her photos which I made a collage of below really excited the beach bum that is me.
Since I have lived in a coastal town and bein [..]

There are just too many maxims about love and if I write them all down, it's going to be like a post-Valentine hangover. So let me spare everyone the agony and get straight to the point. What is the recipe for true love? I have a recipe I'd like to share. A real recipe... for TRUE LOVE.
Allow me to say state this all too familiar proverb: The way to a man's heart is through his stomach. / The shortest road to men's hearts is down their throats. Agree?
Based on my experience, it is in fact a bi [..]

Today I woke up wanting to shave my hair off. It had been terribly unruly... kinda sexy but it was bugging me so much. So I decided to dye it so dark I now look like I've been casted for Twilight. FML!
Product used to achieve a provincial Bella Swan look is none other than 4.0 DARK BROWN hair coloring cream from Hortaleza and a 6% developer... all for less than Php300!
Oh well... it looks black after the first wash, maybe it will lighten a bit after a few more washes. But that's okay, I' [..]

I know it's been quite a while since I've posted anything interesting in my blog. Motherhood has really been quite a challenge. That and working more so I can pay for the additional expenses in my household. Nothing gargantuan but I oh so need more than 24 hours in a day!!!
Anyway, since it's Sinulog in Cebu right now and again, we weren't able to go for obvious reasons, the guys decided to celebrate anyway. So here we are at SALA Lounge + Cafe's Patio + Bar.
Nothing like RH on a rainy night.

The New Year didn't just usher the whole new 365 days, but I received yet another wonderful prize. Okay, Santa was a little late sending me the gift I asked, but the good people at Pizza Hut made sure it was "safely shipped". And by safe... they weren't kidding!
You've got to hand it to LBC. They're my most preferred courier here in the Philippines.
I got this for the blog post I wrote for Supremo, one of Pizza Hut's Tuscany pizza flavors. We had a great time making that entry and now having [..]
