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…

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…

Dapitan: In your spare time, draw fish.

Colours will distract you some days and they’re captivating enough to count as valid nutrition sources. Think photography, for me, has always involved tiptoeing lines between light and shadow; it’s a time-consuming exercise and a healthy distraction that sometimes serves it’s purpose, drawing in cash when necessary. Myriad of hues with it’s hint of comedy,…

Six.

  Six places I’m normally at… 1. Walking Place(s) Normally, this is the area between home and the Eko headquarters, Ayala Center Cebu, mum’s office and various other meeting spots for other projects. If I could have a decent discussion on foot, I’d do it. Walking helps me sort out the days activities and set…

SE7EN

What are words but potentials. History requires action. Here are SE7EN wants that I intend to bring out from electronic pages and into a semblance of reality; a bucket list of sorts. 1. luxuria Wanderlust. A little luxury I’ve been meaning to sate… at least, once a year. 2. gula I want to walk the streets…

8 Fears to reveal… this will be fun. These songs best describe those fears, too. Well, more or less. I was trying to inject some flavor into these lists, as I’ve never been one to go all sparkly-eyed with list-making.   1. Zombie / Former cadets are all too familiar with this. I’m the one who…

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,…

Cebu brownie cup…

Given that I’m not the best person to ask about places to have decent meals in Cebu, I’m quite thankful for this link. I can probably point you to the closest coffee shop in our vicinity, wherever we may be in Cebu… but REAL FOOD?–that’s a whole other ball game. I just felt this blog…

Front Leaning Rest.

As I write this, I find myself torn between filling my time with work and, well, creating autoposts for the blog. There are videos to shoot and yet conditions just can’t allow for it. I have to fill my time doing something else? —Or I’m being challenged to choose reflection over rapidity. In this economy,…
