Travelog: Flying Qatar Airways to Paris

I’ve always been a diehard loyal passenger of Emirates Airline, having had a consistently lousy experience travelling with Etihad to Europe (search my blog for the experience). This trip to Paris though, I am flying Qatar. The flight from Manila left at 5.50pm in the NAIA 1 Terminal. I haven’t set foot in this terminal...

New Year’s Brunch at The Cooperage American Grille

Happy New Year!!! 2016 was off to a good start– we had an incredible brunch at The Cooperage American Grille by Fiesta Square in Lafayette– close to our hood. Very nice ambience. This restaurant took us by surprise considering it was our last option as there were a few great ones in the area as...

Boxing Day 2015 Bags + Shoe Finds

You have no idea how excited everyone was to go Downtown Walnut Creek (haha we all woke up too late for Downtown SF) for some retail therapy after we were hanging out in snowy Lake Tahoe. Boxing Day usually spells bargains so my wallet was getting a bit nervous LOL. First (and only) stop: Neiman...

South Lake Tahoe: Evan’s American Gourmet Cafe

Woke up on Christmas morning to below freezing temperatures– it was -6 degC!!! The whole house was still in dreamland because everyone slept so late, so I took the opportunity to head out just to take this breathtaking photo. There was a light snowstorm yesterday which brought fresh powder onto the iced lake. It was...
Merry, Merry Christmas from Lake Tahoe!

Merry, Merry Christmas from Lake Tahoe!

I’m sitting on the bed right now, all warm and toasty, while staring at the window, watching the snow fall outide. Major food coma happened earlier at Red Hut Cafe. I had the chicken and waffle, and it was soooo good!!! The kids and I are watching Christmas Vacation (which is tradition for us to...
Christmas Is About Family and Loved Ones :)

Christmas Is About Family and Loved Ones :)

The last few years of Christmas holidays saw me poring over my phone longer than I could hold a proper conversation with my beloved family members. And sadly, they tolerated it because I knew they love me and accepted that technology formed a very big part of me. Their unconditional love and acceptance of me...

Paris: More Fun Spots in the 2nd Arrondissement

As promised, I’m sharing some more of my favorite eateries as well as shopping spots around my area I think the thing about Paris is, there are many places to eat but a lot in the more popular areas cater to tourists.

My Gem in Paris: the 2nd Arrondissement, 75002

My Gem in Paris: the 2nd Arrondissement, 75002

While many people prefer to stay in the 6th arr. by Saint Germain des Pres in Paris, I always choose to stay in the 2nd arr. perhaps because I’ve gotten used to the area, but also because I really just love the 2nd district. When I talk about shopping in Paris, it is no longer...

Bag Review: Tumi Backpacks for Daily Use and for Travel

I’ve had a few backpacks in my life– but most of them have been for school (haha, I know that’s already way way way way back in the past but hey, I still remember those good ol’ backpacking days). Function was really the number one reason why I chose backpacks over totes in the past....

Haha, I’ve decided to take another “leave” on the blog for a week or so and stick to instagram while on vacation While I kept things fairly nice and easy, doing very little shopping because honestly there were ZERO exciting bags to buy or to covet in the last month or so, I was also...
