Funny how gin tastes like vodka

DSC_0302Stopped by for isaw fix. College days are rushing back to me.


DSC_0305We  walked from Maginhawa street – Krus na Ligas – Oble – Oval










It’s funny how we empty ourselves of everything, and when sobriety hits we take it all back again. It’s funny how the gin we were drinking was really vodka (unless my taste buds were too burned to say so.) It’s funny how you are gray and but the only gray matter is our brain – which shifts only between black and white. If you know what I mean. For whatever it’s worth I’d never regret anything, ’cause what’s the point if nothing can be done about it?




DSC_0322My only solace




I just want to run for a while. So when I come back, I may have the strength (or enough escapism) to bear everything.




You may want to read my primer to my Valentine’s week if you wanna know what happened here. And for the record, I’m sober while writing this. 

V-day thingamajigs

DSC_0293One cheesy student’s work. Who might be the lucky girl… or boy for that matter? HAHA!

We had special videos up at the Moonleaf Maginhawa branch and also online! Aren’t these couples the sweetest?!


So V-day came and I had work that lasted throughout the day. I hadn’t seen it any other way though, so it was fine. Believe me, the highlights of my day were receiving two cupcakes (thanks Jaja and Jen!); dating, errrrrrr…. eating Hainanese with Nica; and watching the 54th Grammy’s (I wish Bruno Mars dated me for Valentine’s lol!)

Pre-Valentine’s Date at John and Yoko

What more appropriate to jumpstart the Valentine’s week with is to have a date with friends you haven’t seen for a long time? No, we do not need years to miss each other. And online convos don’t really constitute you being with them (yes, I am a firm believer of social media, BUT physical presence is really different in many ways.)

DSC_0262Oysters for appetizer. Finished almost half of the plate. Sorry B!

DSC_0267Paella in Japanese cheugh?

DSC_0270Chicken Teriyaki pizza with mangoI wondered if I was just hungry or this really tasted good? 


Or is it just a reason to laugh and gossip over incredibly good Japanese food that in all heaven’s worth I forgot the names of? Well, except for the exceptional Philadelphia Roll that I was entitled to almost to myself. I’m a sucker for Japanese mayo and sushi rice, so forgive the excitement over the morsel of seafood + vinegared rice + fat in the form of mayo

Kisty was just in town for x weeks (sorry BB, bad memory) so we decided to meet at John and Yoko in Greenbelt 5. God knows I’ve been meaning to try this place. Fusion has been out of the radar; but we all had that phase, right? AND if done correctly, Fusion can prove to bring fireworks to one’s palate.


Love that red satchel from Studio Boheme! 


We have to patent Erika’s pose! LOL!


F&H cardigan and pink shirt, Oxygen gray denim pants, Punchdrunk Panda “Negatives” plimsolls, Jansport backpack

No this isn’t my usual get up. But can you really blame me when the bed weather really brings out the lazy in me? I was about to put on my man heels and that leather holdall – nevertheless I still ended up with this look. Enough of the rant though. I love this night with the BBs. I wish though my schedule permits to go on shopping with them at Divisoria, but work gets in the way (and I’m not telling that it’s a bad thing.)

Kisty if you’re reading this. I really miss you!! Hope we can visit you in Singapore, though! BBs, dinner with you soon! :)

This is just the first of the many ganap this week! Best V-week ever, if you ask me!
