BALER 2018

Disclaimer: I’ve been to Baler before while my friend wanted to see more of the paradise’s beaches and geographic formations, so we skipped some tourist attractions that you might expect to see on this post. To read about my first Baler adventure, click here.  Thanks! ❤ — April 27, 2018 marks the day that I kept…

eLBi Diaries: Haraya

Sooo I was stuck in my room for about two days trying to review and compress all the information in my head for the upcoming civil service exam. To take a short breather and to celebrate my uncle’s birthday, we decided to have our family dinner at Haraya.   The place. Haraya’s interior can be soothing…

T*arts: FEB 2018

November is my declared hell month but this year, February is definitely keeping up ahead of the game. With the AISAS Valentines Sale and symposium that we are arranging, the stress just keeps on piling up. Good thing is that I have lots of ways to de-stress, and painting is definitely the cherry on top…

PATAteam Adventures : Art in Island 2017

Howdy! I’m still alive guys and it’s been forever since I last blogged. 2017 has been the craziest and busiest year that I barely managed to survive lol. There are only a few days left before the holidays and I’m already at my wits’ end. We decided to have our year-end adventure at Art in Island,…

T e a r s

One thing I appreciate about Facebook is that it constantly reminds you of the memories of what you’ve shared, felt, and experienced on the same day of the previous years. What I’ve noticed is that I’ve been artistically inspired last year and I always have an artwork to share almost every single day. Wow. Anyare? So…

Masungi Georeserve 2017

After two weeks of keeping myself away from my laptop (blame Mobile Legends for that HUEHUE), I’m finally back to finish this long overdue blog post about our recent adventure at one of the most instagrammable spots in the country: the Masungi Georeserve in Rizal. The Masungi Georeserve is a conservation area and a rustic rock…

Tini Travels: Pinto Art Museum 2017

“Pwede na kayong magtayo ng exhibit sa dami ng drawing na lakad ng barkada mo” — as this famous saying goes, I really thought Kars and I’s trip to Pinto Art Museum (PAM) would never push through. But as art enthusiasts and self-proclaimed painters (mwahaha), we were really eager to fit this trip to our busy schedules. It took…

Tini x Cafe Rizal

The best way to reward ourselves for surviving the energy-draining travel is, of course, the yummy cuisine from Pinto Art Museum‘s very own Cafe Rizal. Cafe Rizal’s interior equally matches its cozy facade… Being a total foodie, Kars and I decided to order the cafe’s best-sellers. For the pizza, kuya recommended the Vigan Pizza while the Mediterranean Pasta for their best-selling…

Sandbox 2017

Last 7 January, which happened to be my birthday hihi, we were given the opportunity to witness one of our ex-officemate’s happiest moments in his life: his union with his ladylove (ayiiee~~ best wishes guyth!) in Pampanga. We left Elbi at 4 AM and arrived in Pampanga around 8:30 AM. The trip was really fast that even…

Tini vs 2017: a challenge towards the future

Random thought: ang hirap mag-isip ng title ha! Whew~ It’s been three years since I last had my “new year, new me” goals. While some of my yearly goals were kept hanging, it won’t hurt if I still create a list just to stay on track. So for the record, here’s my bucketlist, not just for 2017,…

PBGB Goes Retro

I have always been an avid fan of vintage and retro style. That’s why I was excited when it was announced that PBGB (Plant Breeding, Genetics and Biotechnology Division)’s Christmas Party will go retro even if our sub-unit already had the same theme 2 years ago. And true enough, retro-themed parties never go out of style. We…

toodles x Sambokojin

After months of planning, Doodles and I were finally able to push through with our Sambokojin adventure. We originally scheduled our visit last November 30, a holiday, but we had to move our toodle date to December 6 due to some circumstances. Since the malls in the Metro opens at 11 AM, we decided to leave eLBi…
