The perks of living in Cavite, specifically General Trias, is that we can easily go to Tagaytay. Usually, when my parent's or even my friends come over, after staying some time at home, they would ask if we can all go to Tagaytay as it's less than an hour drive.

We usually take them to the restaurants we've been to before because, as mentioned in my post about before, we're too skeptical to recommend a place we haven't tried ourselves. So we always end up taking them to Leslie's.

Here's another post for the blog series: Friday's 10 Happy Things by Helga of My entire week was spent at home due to some terrible pain. So this was quite challenging because I had to look more on the littlest things that made me happy this week.

I had to watch Heneral Luna over and over again because I wanted to support the anti-piracy law and I really enjoy watching it. I kept asking their team including Director Jerrold Tarog through Twitter when they will release a DVD copy because wanted to keep watching it and also lend it to my family members who did not have the time to watch it due to their busy work schedule. Well, I have good news for Heneral Luna fans and those who did not catch it in the cinemas...

This volume came late because I have been very sick the past days which I will blog about next time. Anyway... This week's #YouBlogYou will be about blog design and statistics. This is for us to understand how these aspects can be significant towards the growth of our blogs.

If you're wondering what this is, #YouBlogYou is a blog series dedicated for bloggers wherein they will answer 11 questions related to blogging every week. This is a great opportunity for us to know them more as bloggers while others can learn something from them too.

My mom, together with my dad, were invited to a site visit yesterday at Lancaster New City which is just about 30 minutes drive from our home. I was not suppose to come with them but because we had to go to S&R Imus right after, it would be a hassle to come back home to pick me up. Before I agreed, I searched Google to find if there's a cafe I can stay in while they go on with their activities. I was happy to know that a Bean and Butter Cafe exists in the area.

If you're following this blog, you may have seen my post about this candy before. I really loved it so I went back to SM Department store to buy a new one. Unfortunately, when I went there, it was sold out. It took my a couple more visits before they displayed new stocks. And it was only then that I found out, there were other designs.

I'm sure you have heard people saying Thank God It's Friday! or at least read its acronym in Facebook statuses and tweets. Truly, there's a lot to be thankful for. It would be really great to begin the weekend with positive thoughts by simply looking at the things that made us happy during the week. So this is why I'm joining Helga's Friday's 10 Happy Things. It allows me to practice focusing on the good things and it also allows me to realize how life actually works in our favor.

I never really paid attention to the security of my social media accounts because I used to think that no one would dare hack my accounts because for one, I'm not famous and I seriously can't think of a reason why someone would want to gain access in my account. 

But last night, I learned not to be complacent. I learned that I should have always kept my accounts secure. Yes, I'm no popular person but that should not keep me from protecting my online accounts. It's just the same as protecting your home or yourself; but in a virtual set-up.

Here's what happened...

In the Philippines, bringing of chocolates from other countries has been the pasalubong custom. or tradition especially for OFWs. Since my mom is one of the modern heroes (OFW), she usually brings home packs of chocolates for our family. However, this year, she only brought a few and this elegant looking box full of chocolate.

There so many reasons why people prefer to dine outside. The famous reason would be because of a celebration. But aside from that, another common point would be that we are just too lazy to cook. That very reason plus the intention to also try a new restaurant we have always drove past weeks before led us to this native and garden restaurant.

We now know ourselves and other bloggers deeper through the first volume of this blog series: You Blog You. Since photography is my all-time interest, I decided that the second volume will be all about photography.

Due to my passion for photography, I always find myself wondering if other blogs do put time and effort with their blog photographs as much as I do. Wouldn't it be great to learn what other bloggers use or how they come up with great photographs in their blog sites or even Instagram feed? Let's end this intro and get to the Q&As!

I really didn't have a plan to purchase another wrist watch. But when my mom and I were looking for a Christmas gift, another watch caught my attention especially that it had a sale tag on it.

Before I go on discussing the watches we saw, I just would like to share my thoughts about giving a wrist watch as a Christmas gift. I really find it ideal especially for teens as it will help them learn how to manage their time wisely. It can be costly than buying a bag or an affordable shoe, but because it's an product not an easily bought, it makes it a great gift item.

Forget buying cheap wrist watches! Learn from my story here. Invest in a good watch and witness it last for years. You can even pass it on to your siblings if you've grown tired of its style. The best brand to go to for affordable stylish and excellent quality watches would be from Timex.

I started this month with excitement and happiness because it reminded me that it's exactly 25 days before Christmas and that this time, I will finally be spending it with my parents. I just can't get over the fact that after so many years, and though I occasionally go to Papua New Guinea for Christmas, this would be the first Christmas we will have as a family in our own home, here in the Philippines.

At the same time, I was informed that it was CityMall Anabu's Grand Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony that day. I'm grateful to be invited to be a part of the event.

“My Bebe Love: Kilig Pa More!” starring Vic, Ai-Ai and Aldub: Guaranteed to break records at the 2015 MMFF

What happens when the country’s comedy giants - the undisputed Philippine box-office king of comedy Vic Sotto and box-office queen Ai-Ai delas Alas, join forces with the newest record-breaking, phenomenal loveteam Aldub in one groundbreaking movie during the holiday season?

No doubt, “My Bebe Love: Kilig Pa More!,” starring Vic Sotto, Ai-Ai Delas Alas and the phenomenal loveteam Aldub of Alden Richards and Maine “Yayadub” Mendoza, is going to make a killing at the box-office and set higher heights in the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) History.

Celebrating the season won’t be complete without giving and receiving gifts form loved ones and colleagues. Gifts without relying on the tag price are much appreciated especially if much thought have been given to the receiver.

Recipient appropriate gift

We must consider the preference of who we are giving gifts to. Someone who loves to cook should be given something that would complement her cooking skills. A sports buff would appreciate something he can use for his sports. Kids would definitely love toys and gaming gadgets.
