Decathlon Sports in Festival Mall Alabang.


Decathlon, Europe's number 1 sports retailer, is now in Manila.  Lucky me, their first mega store in the Philippines opened in Festival Mall Alabang so T and I went there last weekend to check it out.  There are so many great finds and the prices are not bad too! Let me share with you what I saw while going around.

My Top 5 French Fries in Metro Manila.


I had a craving for fries one day and asked my Facebook friends for the best french fries they've had.  Here's a round up of the top answers, as well as my personal preferences, in no particular order.


1. McDonald's French Fries

Almost everyone mentioned McDonald's as their favorite.  Some like it soft and chewy but others like it well done and crispy (like me!) but we all agree that it's best when newly cooked.  T and I enjoy going through the drive thru of 24 hour branches late at night because we always get a fresh batch!  Dip it in McDonald's Hot Fudge sundae? Perfection.

T + J Wedding Diaries: We Are Engaged!


T and I are engaged!

Well, we have been for a while now but I haven't written much about it because we initially wanted to keep it on the down low.  But while scrolling through my old posts, I realized that this blog is a treasure trove of memories.  Reading about our past travels or culinary adventures never fail to bring a smile on my face so I've decided to do the T + J Wedding Diaries.  Let me start with the day we got engaged.

La Vie Institute + Benefit Cosmetics' Lifestyle Make-Up Workshop.


Like many of you, I'm one of those girls who buy make up but don't really know how to use them.  It's just so tempting to go inside Sephora or Beauty Bar and buy everything right?? I know of the brands and their products but what use would that be if I don't know how to apply them correctly.

That's why I got excited when La Vie Institute and Benefit Cosmetics invited me to their Lifestyle Make-Up Workshop which is basically a 101 for everyday make up routines.  It's perfect and just what I need.

Sentro 1771 and Flatiron in Uptown Mall BGC.


T and I were invited by 1771 Group of Restaurants to a back-to-back celebration.  It was the opening of Sentro 1771 and the anniversary of Flatiron in Uptown Mall BGC.  Flatiron, which opened its first branch last year in the said mall, serves American comfort food prepared on a griddle.
