  • Summer Goals
    on Jun 4, 2014 in personal thoughts summer
    It's been a long time since I posted here. OJT, laziness, and some meaningless things got in the way of my posting. Or maybe it is my annual "Write a new blog post? That's a bother" thinking? Nonetheless, I'm kinda back. I'm officially on summer brea...
  • Throwback: Saturday at Baguio
    on Apr 30, 2014 in photography travel
    April 26, 2014. I really needed some time to cool off and forget the disappointing week I had. So when my mom asked me if could go to Baguio, I immediately jumped on board! What better way to de-stress than with some family/cousin bonding time, straw...
  • DIY Hand Painted Phone Cases
    on Apr 6, 2014 in accessories handmade
    Ever since my sister, Erika, and I decided to open an online business, I've been pitching the idea of having hand painted phones cases on our product list. Unfortunately, our business is still under construction and possibly won't open until, I don't...
  • Beginnings and Breakfast
    on Mar 29, 2014 in food personal thoughts
    It summer break - the call for a new post, the beginning of lazy days, and the beginning of making tough decisions.  So I guess it’s time to start again with this blog. How long have I let this blog rot into inexistence? Probably long enough t...
  • Sunday Tunes: Mikky Ekko's Stay (Original Demo)
    on Mar 1, 2014 in music sunday tunes
    On today Sunday Tunes, I was suppose to feature a song from a new band that I love. The post was ready to be written and scheduled for today but I discovered something even better, grander! It was big coincidence actually. Yesterday, I heard someone...
  • A quick trip around Manila
    on Feb 25, 2014 in photography
    It was February 13 and I was freaking out. Not because I didn't have a date on Valentine's Day (as if!) nor it was because I was looking for a present for my imaginary boyfriend. I was actually busy looking at google maps of Manila. My friends and I...
  • Cupcake Baking Addiction: Time for chocolate!
    on Feb 20, 2014 in food recipes
    When I first decided to bake, the word cupcakes popped into my head. You’d think seeing my mom and my sister make cookies mostly  would influence me but no. The whole baking cookies process scared me. How would I know if they’re cooked? You...

    Finally! My blogging mojo is back! Working on a  few things for Simply Average like a new layout and more [scheduled] posts (hooray!). No giveaways as of this moment since I'm saving for my future (hahaha) but if there was, it could be something...
  • Back in Time: Film Camera
    on Feb 17, 2014 in photography
    When I was finally a third year college student, it meant only one thing for me - Photo Journalism class was here! It was that one subject that I've been waiting since freshmen year since it meant that I could finally get my hands on the DSLR I had b...
  • Sunday Tunes: Some Filipino Loving
    on Feb 9, 2014 in music sunday tunes
    There was a time when I knew "a lot" of OPM (short for original pinoy music or what we Filipinos call our  local music). I really didn’t know the name of the bands or the title of the songs but when it played on the radio, I sang along wi...
  • Last Minute Meals: Bacon Ramen
    on Feb 7, 2014 in food last minute meals recipe
    Ever since I watched Tampopo last year, I've been craving for ramen. Even though, I already had some of Rai Rai Ken's Batchoy Ramen, ugh I was still dying to eat one. Watching The Mind of a Chef's ramen episode didn't help. So I decided to make...
  • The red velvet madness
    on Jan 19, 2014 in food
    When I first heard about red velvet I thought it was chocolate with red food color in it. It all sounded simple so I was wondering what was all the fuss surrounding it. I know chocolate can taste heavenly but seriously? Did the red color change the f...
  • Welcoming the new year [through photos]
    on Dec 31, 2013 in personal thoughts
    I guess whether we're just settling down in our new home, spending the last day of 2013 and New Year's Eve is still fun and awesome as ever. As long as I have my family around, everything will be fine. All photos taken by Erika Dino. ♥...
  • Sunday Tunes: James Arthur's Cover of Wrecking Ball
    on Dec 1, 2013 in music sunday tunes
    It's been a long time since I posted something here. School work, writer's block, and my annual "should I stop writing on my blog or just delete it" syndrome pretty much got in the way. But I'm back (for now, I guess), living life in the most normal...

    on Nov 10, 2013 in college life handmade
    It was just last year when my sister Erika developed an interest in bookbinding. Using old materials like used canvas cloth and coffee-stained papers, she has created a planner, sketch books, a scrapbook and small notebooks for her and her friends. I...
  • I (kinda) baked: Banana Cheesecake
    on Oct 30, 2013 in food recipes
    My sister made some Chocolate Chip Chessecake for my parents civil wedding anniversary. They were some cream cheese left and my mom boiled some saba bananas last Sunday and so I thought, why not? I searched for some recipes and luckily the top s...
  • Halloween "Costume" Idea
    on Oct 30, 2013 in diy handmade
    If you're still wondering what your Halloween costume should be, here’s a great idea! Technically this is not the whole costume, more like halloween make-up but who cares? Just show what’s inside. Literary. Just a grab some paint/make-up, brushes...
  • Sembreak. . .
    on Oct 27, 2013 in personal thoughts
    The past two weeks of sembreak have been one lazy day after another. I've been staying in what is officially my 3rd home where the internet is either working for 30 minutes a day or around 10 pm. I've probably stared at my laptop screen for who knows...
  • October (Old) Movie List
