HOT TEA: Philosafy Coffee

When in 17th Ave, no one can deny that hipster coffee shops are abundant. Philosafy is one them. Unlike the other shops along 17th Ave., Philosafy has a larger space with tables that can fit larger groups. For some reason, I adore the interiors. I think it’s mainly because of the golden details that blended well…

Mackay’s Ice Cream

A family ice cream shop that opened in 1948 is still delighting customers around the world

Inside Ichiba!

Being a now frequent visitor in Resorts World Manila (thanks to all those RWM shuttles), my friends and I decided to visit the latest addition to their restaurants in Newport: Ichiba Japanese Market. Ichiba is a Japanese restaurant which gives you the experience of going to a Japanese Market without the need for a plane…

OOTD with Caronia!

Fifty-five (55) pesos. I know. HOW. How can this whole outfit be P55? Well, let’s just say that I was updating my wardrobe and I saw some happy finds but more of that here. But right now, let’s talk about summer! In a very tropical country like the Philippines, it is hard to tell if there is such…

Wanderland 2016

Donut be :( with Krispy Kreme!

In this digital age, expressing yourself is such a big deal. We are so used to expressing what we think and believe in through paper and a pen, your #ootd, a theatrical performance or by singing along (with matching tears) to Adele’s albums. For a faster and more efficient way to express yourself (especially for…

Stores I Love: UVLA

In the corner of Cubao Expo lies UVLA, a candy shop for all things old and wonderful. It’s like stepping into a time machine with the year set to the likes of 1938 or 1954. UVLA stands for Unique Vintage and Lost Art or in other words: a place where old souls could be happy. A majority of…
