Barista Loft: A Cool Coffice Spot in Tagaytay

Working remotely gives you the freedom to work practically anywhere. But the Philippines isn’t really an ideal spot for remote workers due to several factors, including slow-as-a-tortoise internet speed, coffee prices at coffee shops and more. We lucked out in finding Barista Loft in Tagaytay, though. Where to find Barista Loft This quaint cafe can …

How I Do My Makeup (When I Actually Feel Like Doing It)

Ah, my love affair with makeup. How do I begin? Just a couple of days ago I was talking to my husband about how I was more into discovering and learning about makeup three years ago. These days, it takes effort to make me pick up a brush and just play with products. I’ve even …

Balai Ma-yi: Our Go-to Cafe in Tagaytay

We’ve celebrated two birthdays here (mine and my husband’s — on different years), so it’s quite surprising that we’ve never written about our experience about Balai Ma-Yi.

There are surprisingly so many fascinating things to pick up, not just about tattoos (well, more importantly about tattoos) but also about art, skills, following dreams and life, in general.

Ribchon Tagaytay is a Haven for Meat Lovers

“Oh, there’s nothing to see there,” I tell my husband (and myself internally) whenever we try to decide whether we’d take Mahogany Avenue instead of the other way we always take to get to my parents’. One day, we veered away from the usual. But it’s not like we’ve never gone that road before. We …

Nesting? Binge on These Interior Design YouTubers’ Videos

Ever since we moved to a new place last month, I’ve been on a nesting phase. The house is pretty much okay now as far as organization goes. The furniture have been arranged. We’ve already devised a cleaning schedule. We’ve been using the house “normally,” if you want to put it that way. It is …
