There is something exciting about port towns that is growing in me. The beauty and charm of living next to the sea is quite enticing. I can already imagine waking up each day to the sight of boats sailing back and forth; watching ducks swim and seagulls fly; seeing fishermen leave with their nets and return with their day’s haul; and having the smell of salt and fish in the air. Each day would unfold like a carefully choreographed show, and the thought of it is enough to make the wanderlust in me dance.

Hubby and I are passionate travelers. Apart from experiencing new places and immersing ourselves in culture of various locales, we also both enjoy collecting tangible reminders of our trips. For the most part, hubby keeps an eye out for pieces from local artists, while I tend to lean towards home décor items.
We just came back from a splendid beach holiday in Lombok, an island in Indonesia, and boy, is it harder to come home than to go on a getaway! Post-trip blues are real. I’ve been procrastinating on this post since we arrived, but I finally summoned enough motivation to write. I’m so glad to be back here in this space, to share our experience with you. Read more
Truly reflective art is born from its culture. It celebrates, rebukes or just showcases the beauty of life that may otherwise go unnoticed. This weekend, I had the opportunity to partake in Art In The Park at Jaime C. Velasquez Park here in Salcedo Village. This is an annual art fair organised by the Museum Foundation of the Philippines Read more
Maria Luisa’s Garden Room is an intersection of a Grand French vintage tearoom and a quaint eatery, creating the perfect atmosphere for both romantic dining, and a girl’s night out. Carefully selected colors and textures have been combined to create a warm and elegant interior.
We chose a table next to a window overlooking their serene garden.
