UAAP Basketball Season 78: DLSU vs Ateneo.

This isn't the championships yet but it was such a good game that I want to dedicate a blog post to it! 

Last Sunday, the De La Salle Green Archers faced the Ateneo Blue Eagles for their last game in the elimination round.  I thought T and I were going to miss most of the game because it was so traffic in EDSA and even around Mall of Asia.  We parked at the open lot in front of E-Com (ang layo!) because we expected that parking near the MOA Arena was full already and just ran in the rain!  Poor T.. He wasn't feeling well but he still gave me his hoodie so I wouldn't get wet.   So come the game, T didn't have much energy anymore.

When we arrived at the Arena, it is already half of the second quarter.  The whole time, Ateneo is  leading by a lot!  The second quarter ends at 36-46, in favor of Ateneo.

Luminisce Derma Clinic with Dr. Kaycee Reyes

If I were my skin, I'd hate myself.  I don't wear sunblock (not even when I'm directly under the sun or at the beach), I don't have regular facials done, I don't drink enough water (three glasses a week is already a lot for me), and I don't have a dermatologist.  But now that I'm in my thirties, I know I should take care of my skin more.  I took baby steps by recently incorporating a skin regimen to my daily routine.  It's nothing fancy, just Neutrogena moisturizer with SPF during the day and Lancome Genefique and another Neutrogena moisturizer at night.  And I try to drink more water every day.

I was also supposed to look up a dermatologist who I really liked but my last visit to her was more than a decade ago.  And that's when I received an invite for a consultation with Dr. Kaycee Reyes of Luminisce.  Talk about right timing!

Earth Kitchen in Bonifacio High Street.

Healthy.  Local.  Sustainable.  

These three words piqued my interest when I received an invitation to a new restaurant in Bonifacio High Street.  Although more and more places catering to the health-conscious crowd have been popping up lately, there are still only a few of them and not all are hits.  That's why T and I are excited to visit Earth Kitchen in BGC.

#loveSnR: S&R's Members Treat Sale from Sept 25-30.

One thing people don't know about me is that I love grocery shopping.  It may not be obvious since I don't cook, except for the occasional pancakes and omelets, but I do enjoy going to the supermarket.   One of my favorite groceries is S&R, which is actually having a Members Treat Sale only until today!

The San Diego County Fair in Del Mar and the Slingshot Ride.

I went to visit my sister in San Diego last year but I was (and still am) only able to write about the trip sporadically. To see my other blog posts about that trip, click on the label US Trip in 2014.


My sister and I are adrenaline junkies so when I visited her in 2014, we decided to go on this infamous ride called the Slingshot at the San Diego County Fair.  You know those funny videos on Facebook where people pass out or go apesh*t while on the ride?  Yup that's the one.  I wanted to try the Slingshot during my trip to Guam but I was wearing a dress so it was a no-go (read my blog post about my Guam trip).  But finally, after four years, here I am!

Before we go into all that though, let me take you on a tour around the fair grounds.

Staycation at Nobu Hotel in City of Dreams Manila.

The first time I stayed in Nobu Hotel was when I arrived from Bali (read my blog posts about my birthday trip to Bali) and right before I left for the States so I can spend time with my mom via a staycation.

Pico De Loro at Hamilo Coast in Nasugbu, Batangas.

Everyone has been in such a bad mood lately with the heavy rains, bad traffic, and horrible news that fill, not only my TV screen, but also my Facebook wall.  It seems like every news bit is either annoying or depressing!  So to counter the blues away, I am going to try to create a little bit of virtual sunshine here by sharing about our trip to Pico De Loro Beach and Country Club last April.

Yuujin Japanese Cuisine in Greenhills.

There must be something with September because around the same time last year, I remember being stuck in really bad traffic too.  I attended a meeting in the Malacañan compound which lasted longer than expected so I wasn't able to eat breakfast and lunch.  They served food and snacks but I found it hard to eat and to participate at the same time.  

After the meeting, T picked me up but traffic was so bad, he had to find alternate routes and somehow we ended up in Greenhills. I told T I was dying of hunger so he suggested that we try Yuujin Japanese Cuisine.
