[Places & Food] Lipa City Food Scene | Episode 2

As promised in the previous post of mine where I shared food places to visit here in Lipa City, I am sharing this second episode for more choices!

Recently, my long time friend Nicole visited from Ireland and prior to her flight going here we already planned the food trip itinerary for her, still with the help of our 'very well-versed with food choices' friend Linger. Here's the plan that unfolded.

Exploring Lipa's Food Scene (Episode 2)
  • Ambrocia's House of Ramen and Teppanyaki
This was the first place we visited on what I call as the 'great Nicole returns to PH foodtrip'. It was raining that night so it was fitting that we had ramen to ease the cold.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 25, The Instant Experience

Starting this August with a thankful heart because I now have my own Fujifilm Instax Mini 25. It may sound a bit materialistic to make it a big deal but I have wanted to own one ever since the idea of capturing my future children's milestone with one came to my mind. I legit planned to get one myself but when I saw that  Fujifilm Instax Philippines had the #‎InstantStory‬ #‎PhotosWorthAThousandWords‬ contest, I immediately joined. And you guessed it right, I won! 

I was the week 7 winner. They ran the contest for 8 weeks and gave away 8 Instax Mini 25. So generous right? Below is the Facebook post of my winiing moment. Teehee!

My winning moment.

Rediscovering Tumblr

It's been a while since I posted. I guess, there's a season for everything. A season to pause and a season to binge post. Glad to share that this is not the time to binge post so no reason to unfollow.

I just wanna share that after some slacking, I finally found my motivation to create a Tumblr account. Breaking news! If you are a user, you can follow me As of this posting, I have one Tumblr entry and it's a reblog. So inspiring... NOT.

I'm sure you've heard about Tumblr, but what really is Tumblr? It is 'a microblogging platform and social networking website founded by David Karp and owned by Yahoo! Inc. The service allows users to post multimedia and other content to a short-form blog.' 

Yes, it's owned by Yahoo and one of the reasons why I re-started (I've closed all my Tumblr pages two years ago.) is because I've recently developed an admiration to the CEO of Yahoo, Marissa Mayer (she's part of my triumvirate heroines along with Hillary Clinton and Amy Poehler). Plus, I'm a big Buzzfeed reader and most of the time they say Tumblr is a goldmine of random posts. I love random posts, might as well discover them on my own.

Why would I want to go to Tumblr when I have my own blog, a Facebook account, and some other social media accounts? Well, in Tumblr you don't have to be sorry about posting random stuff because people go there for the sake of randomness. So yeah, no #sorrynotsorry hashtag needed.

Again, follow me if you are a user too or if not, just check-out my page from time to time. I cannot assure awesomeness but I will atleast try.

Swimming Lessons @ Twenty-Six

Is it too late to post this as summer is already over? Nah. Just like how it is NOT too late for me to learn how to swim at age 26. 

Ever since I dated my man who grew up on an island and who jumps off cliffs unto the water with no hesitations, I realized that I am discounting my life with real experiences just because I don't know how to swim. Later on, I tried surfing and even enrolled in intense surfing lessons for six weekends but still not took myself to swimming lessons. I can't even back float. Sucks.

So to do myself a favor and not fool my body-loving water, I enrolled in  Bert Lozada Swim School (BLSS) end of May this year. It was good news that they hold lessons in a college near by my house in Lipa City.

[Music] True Colors | Zedd

I've been anticipating the second studio album of Zedd for a while now. Ever since I heard his work on the "Divergent" movie soundtrack (ugggh, "Find You"), I have been so amazed by him.

Fast forward to this year, there was a rumor that Selena Gomez (my queen, hehe!) and Zedd were dating and they are to release a collab which turned out to be "I Want You To Know" (IWYTK) which I played like everyday. You know, it's my jam!
