Clean and Easy

“Clean-eating”, they say.

I call it “easily-cooked meals”.




Softly Indulged ❀️

I like the notion of having a “childlike tastebud.” A person ages, but the memory of sugar melting inside his mouth does not.

So today, I am grateful for a soft pleasure – to indulge myself with a cone of ice cream from a convenient store.

Maybe life is all about small-sized indulgence. You’re biting, slowly, until you realized you’re full.



Korean Food Haus (e.g. Gimbap, Ramen, etc.)

Last week, I had to battle the blazing sun with only an umbrella. As usual, I wasn’t alone. I was with my ever-supportive and generous sister.

“Are you sure we’re eating there?” I was doubtful, though, I’m a fan of KDramas.

“Surely, you’re gonna like the food.” Not minding the heat, we crossed the pedestrian line.


I was surprised that the owner himself was watching over his own resto. Number 6, it was.

Nothing much fancy. Korean Food Haus is more of a “eat-to-go” restaurant (LOL! Was that even a word? Sorry).

Chopsticks! Because I am not ashamed to admit I don’t know how to use one, there you go. You, already, knew it by now. #FactsAboutMe

Didn’t we look too hungry?

Gimbap! Gimbap! Soon as the Gimbap was served, doubly, I was thinking if a piece tastes as good as it looks.

By the way, these fried dumplings are miiiiiiiiiine!

The Kimchi which I least like. No, I am not a fan of Kimchi. So my sister had to consume two servings.

Two is better than one.Β 

Simple flatlay of my meal.

“I want more Gimbap!” exclaimed by my sister.

Proof. Poof!

Melona Ice Cream for dessert. One of the best ice creams I’ve ever tasted. Thanks, Sissy, for supporting me with desserts.

Happy kid, I am.

There would have been more photos of this day, but some memories are captured, only, by the heart. Korean food, it was, it’s better than I thought. Part of me hopes that this is a goodbye to my prejudices for cuisines other than Filipino or American. Welcome to my universal-not-discriminating-taste-buds! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜‚ And yeah, thank you, Shiella and Inang Carling.


Elf-ing and Eat-ing

I have been frequently having “late uploads” everywhere. Reason? Well, planned activities are unpredictable. Things have to fall to the right timing to play their perfect rhythm.

Tonight’s blog mirrors a sudden, unplanned date with my Law buddy, Ate Raquel. She had to meet me for a footwear, yes. And since it was Christmas, of course, police officers enjoyed their pay, too! This was a share of the blessing. 😁😜😝

Tartan CafΓ© is located at Brgy. Poblacion, Binmaley, Pangasinan. It’s a solitary place to catch up with your distant friends, HS and college buddies!

There’s an array of choices from hot to cold drinks.

I like how this photo depicted a frosty atmosphere outside, when, in fact, it wasn’t.

Throw pillows. If you plan to get serious with your “chika” and you accidentally hit your buddy.

Hey there, Elf!

My first slice of caarrot cake, I supposed.

Nachos at Tartan CafΓ© is crunchy and tasty!

Green Macha Frappe.

The flatlay of our orders.

During our stay, we talked most of how we were braving Wills and Succession. 😫😱

It didn’t show but we relinquished this moment of spending time together without Law matters clouding up our minds.

We stated for two (2) hours or so.

The Sweet Police Officer who does not give a second thought to cosmetics or selfies! I love you, Ate! Thank you for being my confidantΓ© in this oh-so-ruthless-and-deceiving-world! πŸ˜˜πŸ‘―

More posts, soon.


Filmborn: Kodak P800 / Kiwi

Β Kodak P800.

After my Saturday classes, I was tasked to buy Fuji apples. Somehow, along the lane of fruits, kiwi stole my attention. I don’t pay much regards to this fruit which has more vitamin C than orange, until we complied with the New Year custom – complete all the 13 round fruits on the table.

Little did I know, we used to ignore it. For who’d realize it’s a kiwi? Truth be told, I know how kiwi looks, but with the bare fruit itself, I have no idea.

Anyway, to stop beating around the bush, I included kiwi in my shopping list. And ta-dah! It tastes better than it looks.

P.S. I am looking forward to shooting more of film photography. How cool is that? πŸ˜„
