Home improvement

Had my house renovated and it took us about half a year to complete it. I had fun doing this little project and I would like to share with you the finished product! This 3 bedroom house is now for rent, perfect for a small family. Looking forward to meeting my new tenants 🤗

7th year

November 25, 2016

Saw this notification:
Happy Anniversary with!
You registered on 7 years ago.
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.
😱😱😱 Time is flying really fast. Is it just me or does everyone feel the same? It’s like anytime soon, I’ll wake up and realise that I’m 40. (No offence if you’re 40 and above 😁)
I am slightly panicking. Perhaps because my life is changing… or maybe NOT changing. Perhaps because I’m not busy or I’m not doing enough or I’m not successful enough, I wonder what it is I really want in life… I read this article from The Huffington Post:
Remember you have the power to be, have, and do anything you desire.Sometimes the feeling of being lost is all-consuming and you forget that you get to choose what you think and how you feel. You are given a great amount of power to create the life you desire and get the answers you are looking for. Whether you use affirmations, mantras, meditation, yoga, journaling or something else, it’s important to focus on the beauty and joy around you. When you do that, the Universe sends you more of the same, including the answers you are seeking.
I try to remind myself of this.
Anyway, today is my 7th year with WordPress, and I would like to thank WordPress for letting me write and rant and share my stories to the world. 💛

All packed up… but

Ride Revolution

August 2, 2016


I have tried a few indoor cycling studios in the Philippines and I personally think that Ride Revolution is one of the best. The vibe was really nice and I really liked the interior design of the place. So far, I have tried 2 of their instructors and both are pretty good. They both have different styles and choice of music… actually nice to have that variety. If you want to try Ride Revolution, they have a package for first timers. It’s only P 1,100 for 3 classes. If you are staying or working near Rockwell, Burgos area or Makati Avenue, do check this place out.

Great way to start my August! 💪🏼🙂

Toyo Eatery

May 8, 2016

Toyo Eatery, the latest brainchild of Chef Jordy Navarra (of former Black Sheep), is making a lot of noise in Manila’s culinary scene. Located in a hole in a wall alley along Pasong Tamo Extension, Toyo Eatery stands out with its modern minimalist look and sophisticated ambiance. The large wooden tables (a centerpiece on its own), the open kitchen, the inviting bar… these simple elements all blended perfectly together make up an interesting restaurant at par with those of abroad. Similar to what Chef Jordy has started in Black Sheep, the essence of Toyo Eatery’s menu is centered on sourcing fresh local ingredients and crafting them into unique mouthwatering dishes. Aside from the combination of flavors that exploded in my mouth (for example, Chef Jordy mixed patis or fish sauce with caramel inside a dark chocolate truffle), the whole experience was quite the feast. Imagine eating a garden salad that looked like soil! The innovation and creativity was very clever and playful, and that is something that the Philippine market needs more of today.

What is nice also about Toyo Eatery is the camaraderie of the kitchen crew and staff. You can see that they are all one big happy family, together with Chef Jordy & his wife May (a very supportive wife who doubles as a server after her executive day job). If you’re lucky to have her as your server for the night, chat her up as she’s quite entertaining haha!

You may visit Toyo Eatery at the Karrivin Plaza every Monday to Saturday, 5-11pm. They have a Tasting Menu for P 3,000++ or order their ala Carte dishes and share for the middle. Enjoy!

6 years….

November 25, 2015


Wow. It has been six years since I signed up in WordPress. I was 25 then. A lot has changed, definitely… and looking back, I am quite pleased and thankful. Though I have gone through some trials and personal tribulations, I know am fortunate for having survived a heartache, death in the family and a quarter life career crisis.

There are people that are simply born lucky and free of problems. And then there are people that strive and choose happiness. Apparently, there is scientific proof that Happiness is a Choice. Having been through highs and lows, I am proud to say that I know myself much better now. I still have quite a number of dreams to fulfill, countries to discover, delicious food to devour and memories to make. And while I’m at it, WordPress will help me reminisce and remember.. that one time I liked a song, that one time I climbed a mountain, wrote an incredible experience or made a travel video.

Happy 6 years kimmychameleon! 🙂
