KENYA | ZOO-MEETS-NATURE AT THE NAIROBI SAFARI WALK.

One the many things Roberto loves doing in Nairobi is feeding the Giraffes at The Giraffe Center.

ETHIOPIA | ADDIS ABABA TRAVEL DIARY.

Africa is made up of 54 countries and out of all these fully recognized sovereign states I am not very proud to say I have only visited 2; Uganda and Tanzania.

EXPAT IN THE PHILIPPINES | SHOPPING FOR FURNITURE AND HOME DECORS AT RED HEIRLOOMS IN MALATE, MANILA.

After our 10 years together, my husband and I have finally figured out how to peacefully shop for home decor without strangling each other. Although we may not always agree with each other’s perspectives, we have discovered that sharing and listening to each other’s visions helps in choosing the perfect piece of furniture that represents our combined sensibilities. Meditation before going out for shopping also helps.  Read more

Metro Manila is full of hidden gems, and even though some might not be literally so, you’ll never know they exist till you stumble upon them by accident. That is exactly what happened to me the other day while as I was strolling around Serendra in BGC, looking for a quiet little café other than the one I had been frequenting. I came across L’Epicerie Gourmand, a café slash restaurant slash grocery store. Let’s call it a “grocerant”, shall we? Read more

A reminder that life isn’t perfect but it has perfect moments.  Read more
