He passed his resumé to my family and “applied” as my suitor

I have always been vocal with my relationship online. You can check my social media accounts and you'll see photos of my boyfriend, Wel, and I posted in there. Just photos. And sometimes, travel videos, too. But that's just it; you won't see anything else. I don't share too much information about us because that's what [...]

Cups & Mills Café: Food Review

(+ Meeting up with a fellow blogger! Guess who!) I've been posting too many personal posts lately that you might have forgotten I also write food and book reviews sometimes.

Craziest things I have done and experienced in America

How I got into reading

One question a bookworm would always receive is: How did your love for reading started? Well.. I actually don't know.

America’s all fun & games until people started throwing eggs at you just because

Rice Overdose: Food Review

As I have said on my last food review with Hooked Seafood Restaurant, there is never a day that I didn't check out Agoda or Zomato on my phone.

An expert when it comes to computer - can hack different internet providers, can make his [...]

The Awesome Blogger Award!

Of course, just like what every blogger who got this award said.. This is so unexpected! (Because it really is, okay?) Being noticed by your fellow bloggers is one thing; but being recognized and being told how awesome you and your posts are is different! This nomination is from Ate Glaiza, author of the blog [...]

LA Vlogs: First Date in Abu Dhabi

A little backstory: My partner, Wel, and I are currently both based in United Arab Emirates since the first quarter of the year.
