As restaurants and bars reopen to the public, it’s important to realize that eating out will increase your risk of exposure to the new coronavirus.

Sacrifices needed to be made, but in time, we will all enjoy dining out again.

How To Control Your Business Expenses

Every business owner struggles with expenses. You want to limit and decrease costs while increasing profit. Saying it is easy, but implementing it in real life is quite challenging. When you're starting out, it's easy to keep track where every cent goes, and that's a great thing because you can measure it and improve it. However, as a business scales up, this becomes harder and harder to do. 


One shocking fact is that most enterprises spend 30 percent of their budget on things that don't affect their customers in any way. So where does that money go? You're not burning it or wasting it, but it still gets spent. You might want to implement a strategy and save as much money as you can in a single month or quarter. But that would be counterproductive in the long run.

Very Intimate Wedding Dinner at Tahanan Bistro - Antipolo

I love weddings, from the huge and grand to the intimate and simple, I think I’ve seen it all!  Although I enjoy grand weddings due the extravagance of it, there are so many flaws that I always notice with huge weddings. For one, I observe that people always get tired of how long the hours is, which makes them bored and more often than not, people slowly leave after food was served. Then by the end of the event, almost three fourths of the guests are gone.

A small and intimate wedding lets you spend the entirety of your reception soaking in and appreciating the company of everyone. A small and intimate wedding not only makes it a relaxed and fun celebration for you, but also for your guests. A short and sweet guest list offers you quality time with your guests to celebrate your marriage, surrounded by people you love and who love you.

Road Trips You Should Take in 2020/2021

It may seem to you that planning a road trip in this situation is completely pointless and you would be right. Right now, we’re all fighting a battle much more serious than any other. We’re trying to stay safe and alive, but unless we have something to look forward to once this pandemic is over, what’s the point of all our efforts to be healthy and alive? So, don’t give in to depression, but start planning something exciting to do. And what is more exciting than a great road-trip? Here are just some ideas for a fabulous experience waiting for you.


The Great Ocean Road, Australia
Let’s start from the land down under. Stretching over 200 km, this road takes you through historic seaside towns, breath-taking beaches and some of the most amazing national parks. Start your journey in the town of Torquay, near Melbourne and set off to explore Bells Beach, the waterfalls in the Great Otway National Park or climb to the top of Cape Otway Lightstation to marvel at the ocean in front of you. Make sure you dedicate enough time to the wild and dramatic Shipwreck Coast and its islets. If possible, avoid doing this road-trip in summer, because there is a lot of traffic and the temperatures are really high.

The Best Pigmentation Removal Treatment For Tanned Skin

The skin obtains its color from melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells. Once the cells are damaged, excessive melanin production occurs in certain areas and thereby causing the development of the dark spot to the affected areas. For several years, effective pigmentation treatment has been a challenge for many individuals. Common skin pigmentations include melasma, sunspots, freckles, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and age spots. Early treatment is essential to avoid them developing deeper to a point they become difficult to treat.


Effective treatment begins with early intervention. The cause is identified, and an accurate diagnosis gets administered immediately. All dark spots look typically similar; however, trained eyes can differentiate these spots. Different pigmentations need different approaches, settings, and also protocols to treat them effectively. An individual can also develop more than one of such problems; for this reason, appropriate treatment is needed to avoid worsening the situation.

The Fat Seed Cafe + Roastery - U.P. Town Center

In the past years, we have been witnessed to the rise of the hipster culture brought about by millennials. Hipster is defined as a subculture of men and women typically in their 20s and 30s that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter. And being a millennial myself, I totally enjoy everything about the said culture, most specially the style, the fashion, and aesthetics. 

Moreover, I also love places where the architecture or interior design embodies a hipster style. I’ve been to many, and most of those places happens to be cafes or coffee shops. Do you still remember when cafes were just places where you stop for food and drinks? They used to have simple decor, functional interior and of course modestly plated food that served its’ purpose.

How To Look For Signs Of Pests In Your Home

Pests in your home can be a costly thing, especially if there is an infestation. In addition to the pest removal costs, you may also have to pay for damages they may have caused before handling the infestation. Pests, like mice, can destroy house furniture and belongings as well as contaminate everything they touch with a myriad of diseases. You can call pest control to handle mice removal, but the best way to reduce pest control costs is by prevention. By knowing how to detect signs of a pest infestation in you home, you could be saving yourself millions of dollars in the long run. Here are some things to look out for when searching for signs of pests.


Know Where To Look
Look for places like the kitchen, anywhere that you have appliances and the garage. The kitchen has a lot of pipes that feed into it from all over the house. This can give pests a point of entry, especially since the kitchen is their food source. Look in your laundry room, utility room, basement or attic.

The Sunday Currently: Vol. 24

After six months, I will finally have a long weekend. I know, I know, everyone is on lock down, and every day feels like a long weekend. And I know, for some, have even lost track of time. You don't know what day it is, heck, what date it is even. But I am working from home (very grateful for that), and to be honest, since the lock down, I feel like, work hours have been longer, and most times I forget to take my scheduled breaks. And believe me it's not only me experiencing this. 

I'm kinda feeling the cabin fever. I have not stepped out of my apartment for almost 3 weeks now. I dont have anywhere to go either. Damn, I envy those who got stranded Siargao or near the beach. I've been watching this family on Youtube and some people I follow on IG who got stranded in Siargao and my envy level is like off the roof. It's so hot and humid lately, that I wouldn't mind if I am on the beach. And lounge on the sand or on a hammock like I did in Siquijor as I watched the sun set (pictured above).

Macao Imperial Tea at Food District Signatures On 5th - BGC

I’ve seen Bonifacio Global City rise to a premiere business and residential district. I clearly remember from my college building we can still see Market Market, we would do picnics and watch concerts in its former open grounds. Years later it’s a vibrant city full of tall structures and probably the only private property that houses hundreds of restaurants in a small CBD. 

Being the “it” city at the moment, price points of food offerings here tend to be a little bit pricey. And of course, who wants to eat fast food or bland cafeteria food all the time right? You can’t splurge on food every day either since or you have to stick to a budget for your daily lunch.

Beauty and Fashion, Post-Covid 19

There is so much uncertainty of what the world will look like on the other side of the Covid-19 pandemic. The only clear thing is that life as we know it is bound to be different. This pandemic has already ushered a new normal and seems poised to leave its mark on how we, as consumers live including how we spend our money, and even how we dress or value fashion.


Fashion has become one of the aspects of our lives that is hard hit by the health crisis. Before all the chaos, fashion has always been in the forefront of so many of us. Not only for the sake of looking good or for posting on our social media, but it is a way to define each one of us, specially our sense of individuality. Even for business, we try our best to power dress, to give us a sense of being in tune with our professions. It is also a way of gaining respect from our colleagues and contemporaries.

Four Ways To Add Space To Your Home

You want a place that you can feel comfortable in most importantly, and when it comes to having the freedom to move about, more space can definitely help. Here are four ways to add space to your home. 


Install Floating Shelves
Floating shelves are definitely something that can add space to your home but also free up any cluttered areas where you might have things lying around on the floor. Floating shelves are very easy to put up around your home, and they look pretty effortless. It’s important to think about the weight that you’re adding to the shelves and making sure that you do not weigh it down too much. Try and keep a minimal amount of the shelving so that it also doesn’t look too cluttered. These types of shelves can work really well in hallways and in rooms where you might not have much surface area to work with. The bathroom can often be a place where there might not be a lot of surface area to put your lotions and potions on.

Soru Izakaya - Tomas Morato, QC

One of the cuisines that I miss  eating so much while on community quarantine is Japanese cuisine. Unfortunately, the markets and groceries that are near our house don’t offer Japanese ingredients, so there’s no way for me and my family to cook any Japanese dishes. Just before this lockdown, I think I was eating Japanese dishes once or twice a week. I was even invited to an FMU at Soru Izakaya in Tomas Morato. I have visited Soru Izakaya in Burgos Circle in BGC a couple of times in the past, but this was the first time I visited one of their branches in QC. 

An izakaya is a type of gastropub in Japan that serves a variety of small, inexpensive dishes and snacks to accompany alcoholic beverages. The setting is mostly casual and is perfect for after work drinks with officemates. Soru Izakaya was influenced by the Robatayaki style of izakaya wherein customers sit around an open hearth and drink at a relaxed pace while a Teppan Chef cooks their food.

The Sunday Currently: Vol. 23

First of all, I want to ask, how are you? I know times are rough nowadays due to the current situation of the world. If you’re feeling some type of cabin fever or any form of mental problems, please do reach out to someone or to organization that provides help. I know it ain’t easy, we may not have the same level of suffering or problem, but we’re all in this together.

This is my form of getting personal to my readers, if I still have some who visits this blog on a regular basis. Furthermore, maybe as form of a digital journal as well.

Enjoy K-BBQ at Home with Hodai's Samgyup Delivery Service!

I’ve been working from home and sheltering in place for more than seven weeks now. I am grateful that I am able to work from home and provide for my family whose livelihoods have come to halt brought about by the national lockdown. And honestly, I don’t have many complaints about the current situation, unless it’s about the injustices towards health care workers and the lack of proper help distribution and corruption of the government (mostly LGUs) . But there’s a lot of things that I miss doing while working under quarantine.

For quite a bit, I miss seeing friends on a face-to-face basis, attending blog related events and eating out. Especially eating my favorite dishes that I or any of my family members can’t cook at home. I have seen so many posts on my social media asking what people want to do or want to eat once the community quarantines in place have been lifted. And a lot of them answered that they want to eat Korean BBQ or samgyup with their friends and/or family.

Dimsum Run at The Great Buddha Café - Binondo Chinatown

When I started blogging and got invited for foodie events, I enjoy going on food crawls. I can’t remember though, the crawl where I went to more than 5 restaurants. But then I enjoy joining them, but in the long run, it got a little tedious. So nowadays, I only join if it’s less than 5 places or when I’m doing it with friends.

One of the food crawls that I love to do is when my friends plan to go to Chinatown in Binondo. This is the only food crawl that I don’t get tired of and event though I’m full to the brim and any movement might cause me to regurgitate everything that I’ve eaten, I will force myself to put more food into my mouth.

Living Alone: Safety Essentials For Apartment Dwellers

Nothing beats the feeling of being on your own, doesn’t it? Getting an apartment on rent is the best way to get started with the solo-living experience. There is no need to align schedules with flatmates and you don’t have to struggle for your space. Everything seems to be in place except for one thing; you may feel apprehensive about your safety at one time or the other. And that awesome feeling of being alone will not really be that good if you fear every little sound inside and outside your living space. Still, taking a few measures can make you feel safe even while you are alone. Here are some safety essentials for apartment dwellers living alone.


Choose a safe neighborhood 
The first thing that you should do is to rent wisely. Start by looking for an apartment located in a safe neighborhood where you can live fearlessly. You can probably find the crime rate in the area by doing some research on the internet or asking around. You can even go through the local newspaper to check things out. Accessibility is also a thing to consider because you would want to commute to work and back without safety issues. Take a walk in the neighborhood in the evening to get a fair idea. Note whether the street lighting is sufficient and there are people around.

Alishan at The Alley - BGC

In this stressful time, especially because of the threat of the Covid virus and being on quarantine, people all over the world seek some comfort in food. Some dishes we can make at home and some are unavailable at this time. For me, one of my comfort food, or shall I say drink, is milk tea. 

I am pretty much aware that not everyone has food on their table now because of the widespread lockdown. And I don’t want to sound insensitive and posting about food and leisure drinks. But to be honest, I’m slowly feeling some cabin fever. And blogging has always been my escape when I’m feeling stressed and so is food. Thus, I’m going to blog and I wish I can say I’m sorry if somebody finds that, me blogging is offensive to them, I need to keep my sanity too and this is just one action that can fulfill that.

Want a More Confident Smile?

Confidence can be measured in two ways when it comes to a smile. Both the confidence to use teeth how they should be, biting, chewing, speaking and laughing, as well as confidence in a smile. Dental implants Melbourne are able to address both of these factors when it comes to improving an individual’s confidence in their smile.

This treatment ensures functionality of teeth by creating strong, long lasting and durable sites, to which realistic looking and feeling crowns or bridges are connected. ; This method, compared to dentures, also enables the jaw bone to remain strong and not be resorbed by the body. This is a natural process when the jaw bone is no longer appropriately stimulated.

Ramen Daikoku at Ayala Malls, Market Market

Some believe that ramen is the simplest yet the most perfect food. For someone who is a sucker for Japanese food, I’m honest to say that it is the least dish that I like when talking about this cuisine. It’s not the first thing that I look for or crave for when I want to eat Japanese food. But I’m ok with it.

Because I am not a ramen connoisseur or a ramen lover, I find all ramens tastes ok. Maybe because I’m not into soupy dishes, except for Sinigang, which is a different story altogether. But if someone invites me to a ramen place, I would definitely go. After watching the Van Gogh exhibition a few months ago and one of my foodie friends invited us for dinner at Ramen Daikoku in Market Market, I mean, who am I to refuse?

Matsuya - Low Key, Legit Japanese Restaurant in BGC

Food can bring people together in a way nothing else could. I couldn’t say more how much I agree with that statement. The past two teams I’ve been a part of at work have the same thing in common, the love of good food. It’s something that made me feel closer to them that gave some form f escape form our daily stress at work.

With my current team at work, we love eating out and bringing packed lunches that we share with each other. In a month we go for a lunch out at least 3 times and we’ve tried a couple of restaurants in BGC and one of them is Matsuya Japanese Restaurant.

Accessorizing Your Little Red Dress

A little dress, no matter the color, is always a safe choice. But, if you choose a red dress, expect a lot of attention, especially if you accessorize well. Wearing such a bold garment is not easy, but a few additions will ensure you stand out for all the right reasons. Here’s how to accessorize your little red dress in a classy, modern and subtle way that will still keep all the attention on your dazzling dress.

Go monochromatic
Probably the easiest way to accessorize your red dress is to opt for a monochromatic look. However, too many bright red additions can look a bit overwhelming. Instead of going overboard with the shade of your dress, opt for other shades of red to create a pleasant contrast that will still allow you to stay true to your monochromatic look. With red, you have a lot of options to work with: start with the lighter end of the spectrum and go towards dark shades like wine and burgundy. For example, a light wrap a shade lighter than your dress will look super elegant.

Take Your Special Events Look to the Next Level with Hair Extensions!

A lot of girls love events because these moments in our lives gives us the opportunity to showcase our style, dress up and feel beautiful. Whether it may be a social gala, a wedding or a coming of age birthday celebration, it calls for girls and women to dress up and show up fully dolled-up.

Most of us are not celebrities who have their own styling and make up team, but that doesn’t mean that we cannot look like million bucks just like the celebrities that we adore. The internet is full of ideas that we can copy or get inspiration from. So, building up a look for any event that we will attending is just easy-peasy.

MOS Japanese Burger - Flagship Store at Robinson's Galleria

There have been many claims about the origin of the hamburger, but it remains unclear. Many people claim that they invented it but one of the concretes truths, is that this dish dates back to 1758. Another truth about burgers is that it is well-loved in the Western world and the fondness for it has spread through the Far East as well. A lot of people have made their versions of the burger as well, but the basic burger has always been 2 slices of bread and a patty in between.

Here in Asia, burger has also been a daily food staple and Asian countries have put their own spin to it. For example, is the Japanese burger brand M.O.S. Burger. M.O.S. stands for mountain, ocean and sun. 'M' stands for Mountain - dignified and noble, 'O' stands for Ocean - wide and vast and 'S' stands for sun - vibrant and life-giving.

Whats New With Frank x Dean?

If you have been to BGC, or working or living around that area, I’m pretty sure you have heard about this café called Frank and Dean. I know Frank and Dean and have been there a couple of times, but I remember it as a hipster-ish all-day breakfast store featuring Southwestern USA dishes plus their speakeasy hidden behind one of its doors. I’ve even blogged about it back in 2016: Frank x Dean: Coffee, Chicken, Pizza and Speakeasy.

Today, it has moved from its long home to its newest residence at Net Plaza on 31st Street but still in BGC. It’s still in our neighborhood (I call it my neighborhood too because I’ve been working in BGC since 2015), but with a revamped breath of fresh air look, sized down menu and focusing majorly on coffee.

Secret Bar: Alibi Manila

People have different ways of coping with stress. Some do arts and crafts, some read, some travel, some go to the spa or do pampering, some sleep and some go out for a couple of drinks. With the current situation of the world, it’s not hard for us to get easily stressed and agitated. With all the city lock downs happening in the world, people are finding ways on how to spend their time while in community quarantine.

For some people who find it de-stressing through social drinking, this lock down accompanied with the state-wide liquor-ban, that doing social drinking and even drinking at home would be impossible. Plus, doing so might be very insensitive on your part. Because you know, people are worried and as much as possible they want to rest at home and get some peace and quiet. Plus, any gathering outside of your house (like drinking on the streets which is a common Pinoy thing), would be a violation of the quarantine.

With an eye to Ultherapy in London

Have you considered how important eyebrows are for framing the face? Eyebrows structure the face and they allow you to express yourself and communicate more effectively. Eyebrows add symmetry to a visage and can enhance features.

If you’re considering a little lift for the face, perhaps starting with the eyebrows is a good beginning. By getting Ultherapy in London, you’ll be able to lift and tighten the skin on the upper eyelids as well as in the area of your eyebrows. Ultherapy can be used on your forehead too, which in turn gives a natural lift to the eyebrow skin.

Super Sulit KBBQ at Geonbae - Tomas Morato

Life as we know it has come to a halt. If you know me, you know that I love going out with friends on weekends, most of the time to east our or attend foodie events. All travels and events have been cancelled, I’m working from home now and stayed put over the weekend (and probably until after this crisis has been contained).

What’s happening now can be tedious and scary, but we must do our social and moral duties and discipline ourselves to follow the laid-out rules of our government’s interventions. More specially to set aside our political beliefs because it is beyond that now.

When Do You Need A Dental Implant and What Is The Treatment Like?

What exactly are dental implants and what is the mechanism they’re based on? Dental implants are introduced surgically. They are fixed into the bone of the jaw to provide a static fixing interface for a dental prosthesis. Depending on your individual need of tooth reconstruction this can be for example a bridge, a crown or a denture. The body is capable of wonderful things in terms of healing and adaptation: osseointegration is the name given to the process of the bone forming a connection with the dental implant’s material, allowing it to act like a live tooth, and bind strongly to the jaw. A dentist offers many treatments using dental implants in Sydney CBD.

When would a dental implant be good for you? 
If you experience difficulties due to discomfort or pain when chewing foods of a more rigid texture, if you have missing teeth, or have loose dentures, you might require a dental implant. Dental implants are only suitable for you if your oral tissues are in good health and without gum disease, the bone of your jaw has got to its maximum growth, you do not have any diseases that may affect bone healing (e.g. osteoporosis, a condition manifesting in a significant reduction in bone density, mineral content and healing capabilities), and have appropriate bone for fixing your dental implants.
