Maps

Here’s an idea I’ve been playing with: A map of notable spots in my city. Will update this as much as I can. But it’s interesting to somehow list all of this down. Insert internal screaming here. Drop other additions to the list in the comments! Protip: this is best experienced in fullscreen.

A dash of cognac

Early day, running around the city to take pictures and get some work done. Part of the reward is hoping into this nook of a coffee haunt. The white brew is memorable and something I always come back to. And, as often as I can, I add a dash of cognac. Just a hint.

Too sweet, after you

And to warn future goers, only take one at a time. A tripleshot Viennese coffee, panna cotta and chocolate bingsu don’t have to be consumed in one sitting! Stay alert! Be aware.

Cebu Design Week 2018

Cebu Design Week 2018, first of many. Was it my childhood wish to see Cebu Design Week happening? 90% MAYBE. Can I quantify the amount of caffeine consumed weeks into the hurricane? No. Nevertheless, it was a worthwhile birth-pain. And as I choose to be child-free, this is a worthwhile alternative. Happy first birthday, baby!

Hazelnut Latte fix from Bali

Some time March 2018, I was forced into time off. Have to say… was the most pleasant out of the office activity in a long time. Also, has anyone mentioned that the Hazelnut latte in Bali’s Bamboo Green School is out of this world? It’s not the sledgehammer-type street coffee you encounter in Phnom Penh or…

Coffee Hut after palm sugar cubes

Jai Yong Coffee Hut happened right after palm sugar cubes. If there was a polite way to prevent your guest from biting into a serving of palm sugar enough for 5 people, our ladies from Chiang Mai certainly did it. And with a smile, they tell me: that is not dessert, it’s sugar and would…

Hongdae street crawl

Right. I lied. South Korea is definitely more than just Hongdae. This university street has back alleys for the curious and anti-social. Wandering along those tiny roads at night brings about rap battles on one side, a zombie coffee shop in another and some dude with his car’s trunk popped open. Upon closer inspection, I…

Caffeine Fix: Davao

Little boy borrowed my camera while we sampled Bluegre’s Durian Coffee. Durian, on its own, is already one thick, creamy confection that catwalks perfection between bitterness and sugary heaven. Given you’ve been dealt premium grade stuff–getting one when it’s barely ripe or simply not the variety for you translates to disaster. Anyway, wasn’t this a post on coffee? Durian…

Five For Fighting

Five for fighting seemed a clever title earlier when I was thinking of what to call this post. At past midnight, though, trivialities can appear overly clever. Like, for example: Five For Fighting. When I think of a better one, it will change. One afternoon, stuck in a bookshop had me amassing books. Part of my mind…

Temple raiding, caffeine break

What to do in Siem Reap? Lots of walking, running around and finding your way through life-sized Tetris blocks. Once in a while stop by a sidewalk stall and grab a sweet dumpling, which goes best with their sledgehammer-type coffee. Oh, you think dark coffee is your ally. But you merely adopted dark coffee; this brew…

For those who need their answers ASAP, take note that all this is built on research. A bit of my material is taken from http://books.google.com/, gems you will…

Patricia Kyle Gillera Mendoza : Portfolio 2013

Thought to update this for those who’ve been asking. Also, yes, it’s my responsibility to keep this portfolio updated after all. The nifty image of me shot by the lovely, Faye Seña of the Boys in Skirts Club. Links, CV and other details are available upon request. Please leave a comment to make a request. Thank you!…

2012: Death, Earth and Sky

Almost, I hold this theory: jumble sunshine, sky, a string or brass section into any song and it’ll worm it’s way into my heart. End of 2012 and this song comes to mind, maybe because it’s both hopeful and bittersweet. By personal definition, the perfect metaphor for 2012. All those simple thoughts all those peaceful…

Not this brand of succinct.

Let’s look at a picture, shall we? Not that you have much of a choice. A slice of paradise, right? Having spent about a month in Luzon, this was one of the more beautiful scenery I’d managed to come across. I was there for classes on 3D modelling and in need of certification, you know,…

There is a lot to do and I just took a little break. Let me write more later today, when my thoughts have settled.
