Sharing a Song this SUNDAY: Give Your Heart a Break

I'm so loving Demi Lovato's new songs these days. Here's another one...

Happy SUNDAY, everyone!

Our Friday Lunch Out

Our Friday lunch out was quick and tasty.

Which simply means one thing - we weren't able to take photos of our food. HA! But the interiors of this small Japanese resto was too nice, so we took our photos inside.

This is a new discovery and it looks like we are going back there pretty soon.

Craving for Greek Food? Try Greeka Kouzina!

Hubby and I started to appreciate Greek food ever since we tried Cyma. So whenever there's a new Greek resto along the corner, we would definitely try it. Here's a new one and it's called Greeka Kouzina.

And guess what, we've been trying this for a couple of times already and we would always love the food. ♥

The servings are huge too!

Would love to be again and hopefully we get to try their lamb!

Our Sonya's Garden Getaway

A couple of months ago, Hubby and I re-visited Sonya's Garden for a quick massage.

The weather was perfect! We enjoyed it so much.

The massage was unforgettable too!

We will always go back to Sonya's Garden if not for the signature massage but for the healthy food of salad, pasta and tea. This is definitely my favorite place in Tagaytay!

Looking at Home Renovation these Days

Wow, so it's the month of August already! Half of the year is done and here we are trying to "squeeze" everything that we need to finish before the year ends once again! Time is flying by so quickly, right? We have to set our priorities straight for now on.

So starting this month until the end of the year, I'm prioritizing the home renovation once again. I was inspired especially when I learn more about heavy duty slides and how it would benefit our 7 year old kitchen! Oh how I love to organize and adding this to our kitchen would definitely do the trick!

I will look more into They got a lot of products for homes that I'm sure would fit ours. This would help a lot since our kitchen stuff are getting disorganized lately. I'm glad I found this site because it helped me in knowing what to prioritize in our home renovation first.


Here's a nice thought to think about this Tuesday.

2014 Palawan Getaway: Our Island Hopping in El Nido

We had a wonderful time in our island hopping in EL Nido. We chose TOUR A. Although we didn't spend the whole day at the islands because of the weather, but still, it was the highlight of our trip.

Small and Big Lagoons

Secret Lagoon

This is the entrance to the Secret Lagoon.

We had quite an adventure here. The waves were TOO strong and the boat was swaying so we had a hard time going back to our tiny boat. But as they say, trips aren't complete without adventures, right?

Seven Commandos Beach

By far, our most favorite beach in El Nido. See for yourself.

This island hopping finished with a sunset as our view.

Oh, El Nido, we definitely missed your beauty now. We hope to see you again in the next few years.
