CCAP Color Dash

Hi everyone!
Got any weekend plans? :)

Time for another flashback. Here's a late entry about the time my officemates and I joined a 5K fun run, The Color Dash. It was organized by the Call Center Association of the Philippines. It's called Color Dash because you get lobbed with different colored powder at every stations. Though it has the word "dash" in it, it's technically a fun run so it's up to the participant whether they'll make it a timed event or just simply walk it off and have fun. Luckily, it was my rest day so I was able to take part in it. Many of the BPO companies in Manila participated in it. Some of the participants wore color coordinated bandannas to recognize their company. Some of them wore colorful baller IDs. There was one who even brought his Shitzu with him. How cute! I even saw people I knew from my previous company. It was very cool!

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

How's it hanging?

It's been a while since I've posted about a book. So after re-watching LOTR and The Hobbit. I decided to reread them. I first read them when I was in high school but I never owned a copy. When two of my friends and I failed to watch The Amazing Spiderman 2 in 4DX at the Bonifacio High Street Cinema (they were sold out for the day and it was just the second screening, boo!) we headed, or I dragged them, to Fullybooked. I ended up buying The Hobbit and The 50 Year Anniversary of Doctor Who. Got a discount too because my friend has a discount card!

My own copy finally!

Wicked Oreos

Hey there!

Here's another food post because I've been craving this stuff since last week. They're called Wicked Oreos though I don't know where exactly the term came from. It's basically fried Oreos. I eat this when I'm craving something sweet but needs a little more panache. It's quite easy and very yummy! A must-try for those who are a fan of Oreos and have a sweet tooth.

Taking up Yoga

Hey there!
Having a great week so far? :)

The reason I'm writing this post is because I miss doing Yoga with my friends (Hi Ann and Denise!).They are actually the ones who persuaded me to try Yoga. It's one of the classes our office gym offers and it's twice a week. I wasn't really keen on trying Yoga because I know in myself that I am not flexible and I was scared that I'd pull a muscle or something. But Ann and Denise made me agree to at least go to one class.

Channeling Dora the Explorer

Hello! What's up?

My friends have been asking me what got me started backpacking. If you've reading my previous posts you know when but if not, here's the story: Summer Sunshine in Bolinao

Anyways, since I enjoyed backpacking so much I decided to do it whenever time permits me, accompanied or not. I've been asked a lot if I don't feel scared at all. Of course I do. Unfamiliar place, strangers everywhere and a lot of things that could happen that you had not accounted for. Life is full of surprises and you have to hope for the best but also expect the worst.

Homemade Milk Tea

Howdy everyone?

This year's summer has been, by far, the hottest and the most humid I have ever experienced!

Goodness! Leaving your fan's side is a mistake and though turning up the AC greatly helps, it will also greatly rack up the electric bill!

I'm seriously considering locking myself inside the fridge. O__O
So what to do to beat the heat? Indulge in yummy cool treats, of course!
Ice cream is good but I prefer cold drinks. I place it on my bedside table while I read. :)
My drink of choice? Milk Tea!
I love milk teas from Gong Cha, Serenitea, Moonleaf and Dakasi. But a large milke tea can cost up to Php 100.00 to Php 120.00. It can get really costly if I drink them everyday so I decided to try and make my own.

Siomai ala Spammy

Halu everyone!

This is a verrrrrry late post (I accidentally deleted them on my phone so I had to scour my hard drive for it. lol).

Anyway, as mentioned on my last food post I'll be cooking siomai, so here it is. Siomai is a kind of dumpling. Siomai in the Philippines can either be eaten as a snack or served with rice.

Summer Sunshine in Bolinao

Hey there!
What's new with you? :)

Anyhow, this travel post is actually from last year. Why only now? Well, aside from the fact that I only started this blog last December, this trip is actually what inspired me to go backpacking. Don't worry, I had friends with me. ^__^

It all started with me resigning from my previous work. My close friends there and I do meet up from time to time but we realized that we haven't traveled out of town together. We all pitch in on which places to go and what to do. Either it was too far, too expensive or the place has already been visited by one of us. Out of desperation, we randomly picked a place from a website. So off to Bolinao we went.

Backpacking in Baler

Hey there! How is everyone?

Last April, I channeled my inner Dora the Explorer and went to Baler, Aurora (Actually, I went to Baguio City, Cabanatuan City then Baler all in a span of 6 days!)

I was alone again, unfortunately. Sadly, my friends' requests for a vacation leave were not approved. But not wanting to have my vacation leave go to waste, I decided to have another solo adventure.
