#MayForever Nga Ba? (Does Forever Exist?)

While eating a piece of chicken wing, my eyes darted across the room. The Filipino-Chinese fast food chain was packed to the brim and noise filled the air, a muffled mixture of chatter, cashier register clicks and silverware clinks. 

But amidst all the chaos, three tables caught my attention: one by the door, the other by my side and the last nearest the counter. In each one, a couple sat with their graying hair stark amidst the bright hued interiors. "Look. they're dating." I whispered to my mom. "How cute."

Shopping is supposed to be fun but let's face it. There are days when it feels blah like a chore.

Pinterest-ing: 10 Tips for Bloggers | Anne's Scribbles and Doodles
Pinterest is a gold mine not only for ideas but also for blog traffic. Think about it as a cork-board of sorts, albeit a digital one. I stumbled upon it a few years back and because it satiated my OCD tendencies, *hoorah neat freaks* I used it on the regular.

Dolce Cafe Cebu

Dolce Cafe Cebu
Before I flew and moved to Manila from Cebu almost a year ago, I made sure that I had a despedida date with my kindergarten chummy. (Hoorah for backlog posts! I finally got the time to blog about this after 10 months. LOL.) Of course, my little sister got to tag along. We didn't really have a choice, did we? I'm just kidding! With two of my favorite people in the world, we spent a quiet Sunday afternoon at a dessert place up the mountains of Busay called Dolce Cafe.
