Three days under the sun

One day I woke up and just said, “I want to go to the beach.” Lucky for me, the hubs was in an acquiescent mood and encouraged me to look up places we can go to. So I did. And found this. Acuatico Beach Resort A month later, we were relaxing and enjoying the sun…

Wibbly wobbly, timey whimey… stuff

I have an addictive personality. Well, no, not really. But I do have this tendency to get addicted real quick. It can be anything—a celebrity, TV show, a certain type of food, a gadget, anything really. This is why I’ve never went near drugs or smoked a cig or even hit the tables and slot…

Sweet escape

I did something for the first time, two weeks ago. For some reason, I woke up early that Saturday, and so was able to see an email about a Wacoal sale (everything at P100 each, proceeds to go to Japan quake victims). I dragged the husband to the sale, and was immediately disappointed at the…

Not even the ones touting electronics or trinkets for last-minute buys. Nope. Just the bookstores. I can spend hours…

Before buzzing away
