BRB, at BKK

I’m in and out of this city once again but this time for work! I was basically in Bangkok for 48 hours (travel included) and crammed as much food as I could in between doing work.

I should really stay longer next time along with visiting other places!

Everyday Carry

Everyday carry or EDC (not electric something rave stuff) pertains to stuff that a person brings with them everyday. It could be everyday needs such as a wallet and keys, more specific items such as headphones or a pocket tool. Some people also carry firearms because it’s legal in some states (in the US) or specific to their jobs. I’m personally not a fan of firearms in a non-emergency situation (ie. zombie apocalypse)

No, I refuse to wear cargo pants.

Here is my ever evolving EDC over the years:

MNL Eats: Nobu Manila

Last night I was lucky enough to be invited last minute to dine at the famed Nobu Manila that opened over a year ago (Hello, December 2014). I know I’m late but I like to go with my own flow aka when no one’s talking about it anymore and it’s easier to get a reservation. Rewind back 15 years ago to 2001 when I stumbled upon a couple of Nobu cookbooks in our house. I didn’t really have that love of food that I do now but I knew I liked to eat and when pictures of food look beautiful, I’d like to think that the food would taste the same. But alas, the only Nobu restaurants I knew of were nowhere really near Manila and I was not dropping that kind of cash. Not when I was 12 years old. No way, man.

A Sudden Absence

Sorry for the delay in posts!

I got a new phone last Friday and as of today, Wednesday, I AM STILL TINKERING, FIDDLING, AND TRYING TO COMPLETELY FIGURE OUT THE DAMNED THING.

Whew.

As some of you know, I’ve always been an iPhone user ever since I got my first smart phone (no one ever advertised any other smart phone to me, so sue me) so switching to a Samsung Galaxy S7 (or an Android I guess) was quite a change. For the most part I actually like the phone which is why I got it anyway, I just think I will take a long time to get used to it for many reasons:

(This is a rant. I’m so sorry for this.)

It’s Been a Year!

This blog aka my only child turned a year old today! I didn’t expect that this would actually last this long and figured I might run out of ideas. So glad that they sorta kinda just keep flowing! Amazing!

Soooo I spent Micca Matakaw’s birthday at the Restaurant and Bar Show in Hong Kong looking at new concepts and it’s been pretty fun! Lots of food and lots of drinks yaasss!

MNL Eats: Eight Coffee Bar by UCC

Eight Coffee Bar by UCC opened quietly last month at 8 Rockwell, the newest building in the Rockwell area. At least to me it was quietly because I only saw about it in a random newspaper article. With more choices for coffee, food, and even alcohol, Eight by UCC was ready to take on the ever increasingly competitive food scene in the surrounding area.
