    Nathaniel’s Bakeshop

    Part of my goal this year is to try out different restaurants, and this happens to be the first. Mom and I, with her friend, went to Nathaniel’s Bakeshop for lunch one Sunday afternoon after church. I’ve heard of that place before but didn’t know it was a restaurant. It’s a small place in Molito, Alabang, and has the canteen vibe to it. I didn’t take pictures of the inside. They sell puto, puto pao, siopao, siomai, and other local delicacies. Nathaniel’s originated from Pampanga, and I’m so happy they have a branch nearby where I can go and buy my favorite puto pao.

    #FlashbackFriday : My Trip to Jakarta in 2005

    I had the sudden urge to visit my old blog from 2005, back when I treated blogging as my diary, where I write uber random things and the writing style would surely annoy any present blogger. I considered importing the whole things here for the sake of “having proof” that I’ve been blogging for a decade already (started in 2003 by coding the posts manually and then moved to tblog.com in 2004), but that wouldn’t be advisable as my posts back then were ramblings of a 20-year old blogging newb. So I decided to re-publish some notable personal posts instead, like my trip to Jakarta in 2005. You know, to…

    Jack La Lanne’s Power Juicer

    I’m really not proud of my photo editing skills right now, but this will do. On January 19, 2014, I purchased Jack La Lanne’s Power Juicer from Lazada. I initially wanted the Shake n’ Go Smoothie Maker but mom convinced me to get the juicer instead as it will have a healthier purpose in our lives. It arrived 4 days later, which was very quick, in my opinion, although I kinda expected it to arrive because Lazada sent me a message every time there was progress with my order. The first one was informing me that my order was processed, and the second was when it was sent out to…
