30

I turned 30 a month ago. THE BIG 3-0. I celebrated my birthday with family, old friends, and even newfound friends. 

I was supposed to be in Sydney for the business trip, unfortunately it got moved. So we decided to push through to the original plan of going to Batad. I was a bit hesitant, and was thinking of celebrating my birthday in Boracay. I was planning to take the easy route, but adventure won this time. My friends surprised me on the night prior to my birthday. Sweet friends. More of that on my Batad blog kwento. :P

We left Batad in the morning of my birthday. We arrived in Manila the following day, I met with my family at Vikings for lunch. My mother joined us. My cousins and nephews joined the birthday lunch too.

In the evening, I met with my officemates for a videoke night. Daming energy. :P

I had post-birthday lunch with Tatang. Ronie bought me coffee in Starbucks. They were unable to join the videoke. :P Izel gave me a book. 

Of course, the post-birthday business trip. Yay!

The good thing about turning 30, you become grateful to all your blessings. You see where you used to be, and you start to appreciate all the things you accomplished. You turned 30, and you become wiser. You turned 30, and you become happier. Parang biglang nawala yung pressure. I am  30 and I am blessed. Thank You for another year.

The thing is, I am the apathetic one. Few times in the past that people accused me of not caring as much as I should. Detached. But three years ago, I became insecure and clingy. When you get so broken, you'd end up unsure. And I was unsure. I kept on making mistakes. I was naive. But like everything else in the world, time heals the broken ones. I stop holding on to people who hurt me. I start on appreciating my worth again. I let go of toxic friendships. I thank Him for giving me enough strength to move on from that phase. I thank God for letting me feel happy on small things again. 

You see me happy, and I am. I see you trying to get me into your game. The thing is, this is exactly what I want to tell you.

Happy Tummies in Dumaguete

August 02, 2015 Tsina 0 Comments

We spent so much of our time in Dumaguete on our food adventures. Dumaguete is a haven for the foodies, and we are self-proclaimed foodies! When you're in Dumaguete, you should know the drill, eat.
Dumaguete food trip
When we were planning for this trip, we only wanted the Sans Rival. But we got more than we asked for. There are many foodie places that you can try, but let me share you the ones we've tried and enjoyed. 

Hayahay Treehouse Bar and Viewdeck. This was the first place we went to when we arrived in Dumaguete, because we were hungry like crazy. The food is good, nothing amazing though. But the view is really nice. This restaurant is few meters away from the Rizal Boulevard.

Hoy Lugaw. There are days that I only want to eat lugaw for no apparent reason. Luckily, we found Hoy Lugaw during one of our walks in Dumaguete, and we gave in. You can see ingenuity of the owner in this place. The cauldron seats are amazing. 

Neva's Pizza. Pizza never disappoints. Neva's Pizza met our expectations, and probably exceeded because of the price. If you love pizza, never skip this one. 

Panda Ice Cream. We wanted to try the fried ice cream, so even though we were full already because we just had our dinner at Neva's, we still went to Panda Ice Cream. You know, desserts! :P We ordered the fried ice cream, and I enjoyed it. The dough was crunchy.

Captain Ribbers. I've started loving ribs very recently, and glad that we tried this restaurant. They have great ribs and good ambience at a reasonable price. 

Sans Rival Cakes and Pastries. I like both the sans rival and the silvanas, but if I could only choose one, I'll choose sans rival anytime. My sweet tooth enjoyed our stay here, because they also offer cakes. Oh, they have meals and pasta as well. The coffee matches the sweetness of the sans rival. So yes, you can stay here the whole day. :P

There you go, these are the places we enjoyed very much. Nothing beats eating good food, right? :P Visit Dumaguete, and start to feed your hungry tummies. :P
