Going Down Memory Lane

Work has been stressful ever since and I make sure that I am able to balance work and leisure in my life…or else I'll burn myself out. Our holidays are not the same with people that have day jobs. We follow the US Federal holidays. So last US Labor day, we decided to drive our way up to Tagaytay. We all deserve some relaxation once in a while, a little compensation for working hard. Nothing bad about it right???? right!!!




After having lunch at one of Tagaytay's restaurant that serve the famous Batangas Bulalo, we came to an agreement to try out Memory Lane to have desserts.

On Being a Nurse

Lately I've been reflecting of what my life has become. More on the career path I took. In the "about me page" of this blog you will see that I put there than "I am a registered nurse though i do not work in a hospital".




Being a nurse doesn't mean you have to be in a hospital, to be one. Nursing is a vast profession. We are not limited to just being a nurse working in a hospital.

RUSTIC MORNINGS AT ISABELO GARDEN

I saw rebelliousbrides.com's post about Rustic Mornings by Isabelo and hurriedly checked out their site. A few minutes later, I found myself sharing the link to our couple friends who are getting married next year and are on the look out for a wedding and/or prenup photo shoot venue that would fit their shabby chic wedding theme. I've also seen it before in a write-up by awesomeplanet.com. Back then Isabelo only opens in the late afternoons until evening and accepts only reservations. So I was pretty much excited to learn that they now allow walk-ins and offer breakfast and lunch.




So one Sunday morning, after going to church with these couple friends of ours, we decided to drive our way to  Marikina using Waze Social GPS Maps & Traffic, which was pretty awesome by the way. Though we got lost a bit because Waze doesn't exactly know where Isabelo Garden is, only the neighborhood where the restaurant is located. But fret not, once you get to near the area of Isabelo Garden  you'll be able to see signs pointing you to the direction of this pretty place.

Ba-Ba-Ba-Bambanana

No this is not a blog post about the song that Despicable Me minions are singing... One neighborhood eatery that we go to when we don't want to tire ourselves to whip up a dish is  BAMBANANA'S SIZZLING DISH.




Bambanana's is a family-owned business in Barangka Drive in Mandaluyong City. The one time that we were there, we were able to chit-chat with the owner, Bambie Tan, she told us that they got the name of the business by combining her nickname, "Bam" and her only daughter's nickname which is "Banana" (how cute and creative is that!?)

LONG OVERDUE POST: CEBU-BOHOL TRIPS PART 4

Since it has been raining in Manila for the past couple of weeks now, I can't help but think about sunny days at the beach and owing it to the fact that I haven't got the chance to travel to the beach this year. It's already August and a few more months, 2013 will be over soon. I hope that this year won't pass without me having to travel because that would totally suck.




I've recently felt nostalgic and went through all the photos saved in my desktop computer and came across our travel to Cebu and Bohol; and realized that I was not able to make a blog post out of that trip.
