New Found LoveJuly 05, 2014
I gave her a camera so we can enjoy doing things together even better. I want her to understand how fulfilling it is to take photos. To create images the way we want it to be and share the emotions within to others. In this sense she will understand how photography completes me.

Kuppa - Roastery and Cafe
June 13, 2014 Bonifacio Global City

Lunch with Janelle Anne in this lovely cafe. We’ve been curious to try since we always manage to walk by it whenever we take the BGC bus. Both on our way home and before going to the hospital where we both work. 



Spontaneity at its BestMay 22, 2014
Exactly a week ago, Gyno asked me to go with him and Anica to a meet-up in Manila. I tried to keep that in mind but of course I forgot that already. Yes, I forget easily. So the night before, I had no clue until he reminded me about it. He was the one who made our itinerary. We planned to meet at SDA around 1pm. I was there 12:30pm and I tried calling him just to ask where he is but to my surprise, my call apparently woke him up. He was still in a beauty rest while I’m getting sunburn on my way to our meeting place.
I didn’t want to be alone for a long time so I tried calling some of my friends around the vicinity and I am lucky to have Margot. She went down from her office just to have coffee with me.
So I went in to meet Anica and Gyno around 3:30 pm and we arrived at the Chinese Garden past 4:00pm. I stumbled upon familiar faces. I was really happy that everyone is gaining weight! At least I’m not alone, right?

How I Spent My Lent 2014
April 18-20, 2014 - Crosswinds Luxury Resort Suites, Tagaytay City

Far, far different from how I spent it last year where I walked with a mob of so called believers during the Annual Alay Lakad.Well, we attempted to do it again but as early as lunch time we could already see some flaws with the traffic detour and all. The event was unorganized. So we rather stay gladly.

I spent my last night at Hiro’s place. Last, since he will be leaving to Japan for good. After the long talk with and some ice cold booze with Hiro and company, we bid our farewells and promised to meet some years soon.

After the long sleepless talk with my buddy, I hurried myself to Ayala where I will meet the girlfriend who just got out of work from another night shift in the ER. We went home in Las Piñas first to fix our stuff and ready ourselves of course and then Tita Lea and Tito Vince picked us up shortly in McDonald’s ATC where we had our breakfast.

In less than an hour we already arrived in Tagaytay. We had our lunch in Buon Giorno, a fine-dining Italian restaurant whom its owner and head chef is Janelle’s uncle, Chef Marc Floro. We enjoyed the food even if it was a “meat-free” day since it’s Good Friday. The view kept us speechless for a while. Relaxed and uncomplicated - that’s how a break should be in the first place, right? After having our lunch we headed to Crosswinds Luxury Resort Suites, A Swiss themed resort, where we had our 3 days and 2 nights of our stay in Tagaytay. As we arrived, we can’t help but to fall in love with the place since I’ve always dreamed of living in a place where there is fresh air, pine trees and a beautiful view of the sunset as a bonus.

After fixing our clothes into the cabinet and drawers, our toiletries on the bathroom counter, we took a long nap. The beds were so inviting. They look so soft and irresistible. Don’t blame us. We had our dinner inside our hotel room as soon as we woke up. Set off to Starbucks just before midnight for our dose of coffee. Passed to some of our family friends who is happily residing in Tagaytay. Stories and laughter were shared unaware that’s it’s already 3am. Had shower as we came back before dozing off to sleep.

Most of our free time were utilised in dressing up, swimming and photo-shoots. We had so much fun not even words or photos can contain. Just look at our smiles.

Lunch and Dinner in one as we ate huge Ala carte meals and all you can buffet in Bag of Beans late in the afternoon. The place was really accommodating and photogenic but it was too crowded that I was deprived to take pictures freely.

Overall, the stay was everything you could ask for a break. I wish we had more time to do more things but you know, work.
