Our Honeymoon in Bali

When Mike and I were thinking of where to go for our honeymoon, we fantasized about a romantic getaway in places like Spain, Fiji, and even Norway (even though we knew that that would have to be placed in the “Someday” file, or else we would be starting our married life in debt!). All those …

Leap Year Birthday Staycation at Manila Marriott Hotel

As a leap year baby, celebrating my birthday on the actual date of my birthday (February 29) is a very rare phenomenon. After all, it only comes once in every 4 years! After a looong wait, there was (finally!) a February 29 this year, so I was hoping that I could have a more special …

My Love-Filled Leap Year Birthday

It’s “Just” Valentine’s Day but it’s STILL Valentine’s Day

What’s the big deal about Valentine’s Day? It’s just an over-promoted consumerist holiday marked by chocolates, flowers, and cheesy Hallmark cards. It’s a day of red outfits, bad poetry, heart-shaped anything (candy, eggs, a random rock on the ground — you name it!), and unimaginative marriage proposals, and yet even with all of these, the …

Make Your Own Pizza at Fratini’s Restaurant

The concept of making your own pizza isn’t really new in the Philippine food scene.
