Quick Thai Food Lunch at Thai Dara

At lunch one time, the hungry bellies of me and fiance had us exploring one of the many restaurants inside Pioneer Supercenter. He had been craving for Thai food for a time now and we think we’ve just found a good place to come back to. The little Thai gem that we found was a restaurant named, Thai Dara.

Villainy Runs in the Family in Despicable Me 3

Usually when we’ve come from a long weekend, coming to work the very next day is an effort all itself. However today, I have something to be excited about and that has something to do with the movie in this post. Gru (Steve Carell) is back and this time he’s joined by his twin brother, Dru. Oh yes, he has a twin brother and he’s the exact opposite in every way. The one thing that they have in common is that villainy runs in their blood which I’m soon excited to find out.

Noodle Fix at Caution Hot! Spicy Noodle House Kapitolyo

My fiancé sometimes get intense food cravings and it takes us into random and totally spontaneous food adventures. Sometimes they’re good finds and sometimes we chuck it off to our experience bank. Ever since moving houses we now live in the vicinity of so many restaurants that we have yet to try. One of these restaurants that I pass everyday but only got to try a few weeks ago was Caution Hot! Spicy Noodle House. Here’s where my fiancé satisfied his noodle cravings.

The Colour Collection Feature in May’s BDJ Box Elite

It’s been four years since I had the privilege and joy of opening my first BDJ Box Elite which had an entire make up line from The Colour Collection. You won’t believe the excitement I felt when I saw the amazing selection of products. Then just last month, I received my second BDJ Box Elite which had the latest products from The Colour Collection. I can’t wait to show you what was in the box!

It’s the World of Wonder Woman

The movie that’s currently crushing box office records and setting new ones is Wonder Woman. Gone were those days when the world had doubts about Gal Gadot portraying the iconic role and instead, she wowed and inspired everyone who had come to see the movie. There were some who had reservations, (mind you, these were only a few) saying they still had a different woman in mind but no one can deny just how our main girl, Gal really pulled off grace, beauty and fierceness in the film. Now she’s inspiring girls and woman all over. What an amazing feat!

A Fresher and Rowdier Baywatch

I donned my girl next door persona again last night as I attended the press screening for the new Baywatch movie which I had expected to be the perfect popcorn movie to turn off your brains for a while, pig out and just laugh until your bellies get a bit gassy (yes I dare say it). Nevermind that just before seeing the movie, my friends and I were talking how little positive reception it got from its opening weekend in the US, in my years as a movie blogger, I’ve learned to tune out such reviews and reserve my own opinion of the movie after I’ve seen the film. Just as I suspected, Baywatch was what it had claimed to be, nostalgic in a sense that it had some of the elements from the show but way funnier and more in your face. With Dwayne Johnson at the helm, I wouldn’t expect any less. Have I convinced you yet? Well, read on.

Getting to Know the Pearls of Palawan

I was fortunate enough to visit Palawan during one of our company outings and I can attest that it is truly beautiful and magical. It is home to rich rainforests, diverse sea life, scenic diving sites and beautiful beaches. It is also just recently that I learned that Palawan plays host to pearl farming, an industry unique to our country. One of the key players in the pearl farming industry is Jewelmer.

Saying Hello to Distraction Free Driving

This morning I was anxiously waiting for my GrabCar driver to pick me up. I was watching the navigation map on the Grab app and I saw that he was just 5 minutes away. 10 minutes has passed and he still hasn't arrived. I kept checking his location and he was still in the same place. I was afraid that the app had frozen on me. Thankfully, he arrived just moments later. He told me just what I had suspected, his phone restarted and he couldn't get the Grab app and Waze back up again. He also told me that he had to resort to asking around for directions to where I was. I remember that was how we were back then, back when Waze wasn't such a big part of our everyday driving lives.

Today is the day of implementation for the Anti-distracted Driving Act which was passed into a law last August 1, 2016. So motorists, beware...resist the urge of touching that phone or else..
