Personal Notes: Family Lunch ala Vikings
Closely resembling it’s etymological definition of ”going on an expedition”, Vikings Luxury Lunch Buffet was definitely an experience. It would have been apt with the current flooding situation of Manila, that going on an expedition was really what was expected especially with us braving the threatening rains and floods of habagat as we try to savor a weekend away from such a...
Personal Notes: The Garb that is My Long Weekend
Like the rampant FB updates and tweets of i-am-away-to-a-place-beyond-the-usual, my long weekend was simply a reflective vacation, the abnormal serenity of my social media spaces. The garb may simply emphasize the length of the “weekend” stated, but I guess the allegory of the weekend is lost when I write down the non-exclusivity of the said holiday “fiesta” from my...
Larch Notes: A Dreamy Dedon Evening
This is me being dreamy. Nestrest is my to-die-for-and-droolworthy want. Something I hope to buy given ample money to spend on a very random functional material for my garden. And who wouldn’t enjoy this Obelisk? A complete set for four fashioned to look like the classic Obelisk. Then I see a dog seated at the Orbit aka the loveseat. Which is more familiar in this revamped photo...
ArtsyNotes: Why I Hate Blah and Love Pinkness
I purchased a new pen pouch just because I’ve been bringing all my pens to class—all tied together with a hairband or a rubberband that I randomly saw at my faculty desk box. Since I hate the idea of setting a bad example to the class (i’ve lost a recently purchased white board marker for darn sake, and another new pen), I finally gave in to the temptation that is National...
Personal Notes: Habagat, Flood, Stranded
I finally had the courage to open my laptop minus the sound of the torrential rains at the background. The past few days were horrible, the flood being a major component to the debacle with nature and the watershed where our home is located. I wasn’t able to see home for 3 days, 3 nights. I thought the Dark Knight Rises was already a dark movie, and then I experienced something darker and...

Personal Notes: Brave and the Hedgehogs
Last week was all about having dinner with the geekness at Chicken Charlie , watching Brave and finally seeing the hedgehogs and Leslieanne’s new pad (newly acquired family unit)! I have another house to visit. Haha! No photos, we usually have too much to talk about with the camera being an optional tool for socializing. Haha. No time for reviews. Above is a photo of the movie, which at...
