Coffee Time with the Family at Cafe Yagam

I’ve been hearing good things about Cafe Yagam so I was eager to try the place out. So on the last day of October, after visiting my sister to find gold from her stocks of clothes (aka ukay-ukay for sale – I found two very nice tops!), we headed to Cafe Yagam for our afternoon coffee treat.

Situated in a residential area, the house-turned-coffee shop has that feel that makes you feel right at home. They have wooden floors, wooden tables and chairs and big windows that lets the cool mountain breeze in. The surrounding area is quiet, too, and none of the city’s usual hustle and bustle. It’s a perfect place for people wanting to enjoy the cool Baguio weather and to have conversations with friends.

5 Tips to a Hassle-Free Family Road Trip

I now have a 4 year old boy and travelling with him is so much different from when I was on my own. Travelling with a preschooler is also very different from travelling with a baby.

Combining everything I have learned from all of my road travels for more than a decade, here are 5 tips that I can share to make sure that your family’s road trip is hassle-free.

…Please Hold…

I miss this blog. I haven’t been blogging for quite a while now because of all the millions of things I have to do. Whenever I get to find a time to sit down and start writing, I see something that needs to be done immediately. So the blog takes the backseat again. My list of pending posts is growing longer and as much as I want to publish it all, the functioning braincells left after a long day clamors for sleep. I’m already feeling it. I’m burned out. I need a vacation. I need rest. I need a new […]

Saturday’s Excursion: Divisoria Shopping

Yesterday morning, my best friend, RB, and I went Divisoria shopping. With only a couple hours of sleep, I dragged myself up for a quick shower before meeting her across the street before 9 AM. 

Since we have planned tasks to do separately, we took a Grab car on our way to Lucky Chinatown in Binondo. It was actually my first time to go to Divisoria via that route. Truth to be told, in all of my 12+ years of living in the big metro, I’ve only been to Divisoria for about 10 times or less. No kidding!

Z celebrated his 4th birthday by having a McDonald’s McCelebrations party last September 2 at McDonald’s El Pueblo, Ortigas. I never really planned to have a birthday party for the little boy this year.

I finally decided to throw a party for the little boy about 3 weeks before the schedule. Ha! Talk about cramming! Good thing that the second option for a location I had in my list was available on the schedule I wanted.
