Left-over onglet steak? Tear it up and toss it in with olive oil, butter, garlic, and pepper. Voila! A new pasta dish! #homecookedmeal #lunch #pasta

With #gamerchef out of the country again, what am I to do? Read of course! Back to old habits. Quiet time with my other partner, Umberto Eco. #reading #book #novel  (at ROC  (Restaurant-Of-Choice))

I was informed by #gamerchef that a #mooncake game doesn’t actually involve mooncakes. They have cash and treats instead. It was a letdown because I thought he was headed to a land of mooncake dreams. But since he’s sharing his loot with me, I can’t exactly complain. This is to tide me over until his return. Might stress eat until then. Lol. #treats

I can’t thank everyone enough. 

I tried to get through every single message, wall post, text, etc. Just in case I still missed yours, I’m sorry. But I am grateful for everyone who remembered and took a few minutes to wish me a happy birthday. 

I am such a lucky person to have an amazing set of people in my life who makes me feel so loved. Time is the best gift and thanks for all those who gave me some of theirs. From my heart to yours. And I can definitely say from this point on, “I was adored once too.” 

30 and fabulous. #birthday

Joyeaux anniversaire. This year was a series of celebrations, hopefully with more to come. I am so grateful to friends, family, and loved ones who made my turning 30 feel so special. So very grateful. #birthday #wishes (at Π Breakfast and Pies)

Tale as old as time… Happy to see Beauty and the Beast in the cinema. It was only then that we realized it was a French film dubbed into English. Loved that they included the Beast’s gifts and the Father’s mistake of picking a rose into this version. Belle’s gowns were also amazing! Wish I can wear one! #film #filmviewing #beautyandthebeast #belle #rose #gamerchef

I did say I love keeping the tickets right? I also have endless programmes that I don’t have the heart to let go of. What I also loved about this concert is how they took the time to explain each piece to the audience. It was not just a beautiful experience, it was also an educational one. #concert #performance #dawani #chorale

Adjani Arumpac explained her film “War is a Tender Thing” to a theatre full of students and teachers. Very insightful movie that intersects personal, regional, and national narratives and histories. Successful CONTEND event, hopefully with more events to come. #contend #film #filmviewing (at UP Film Center)

Vargas moments. What were we laughing at? (Grabbed from @mandiwa_susie) This was at the opening reception of Pio Abad’s The Collection of Jane Ryan and William Saunders. #art #exhibit #opening #artistwalkthrough  (at UP Vargas Museum)

We were feeling peckish last night, so we flew to Spain to celebrate my birthday. (I WISH!) Lol. Cold, rainy night after the concert, we ended up at Sancho’s Churreria for some comfort food. We can pretend we’re in Spain while enjoying Spanish/Spanish-inspired food. #aroundtheworldformybirthday #dinner #30 (at Sancho’s Churreria, Maginhawa Street)

Last night #gamerchef and I went to UP Dawani’s concert Sa Dakong Sikatan. UP Dawani  is the first all-women choir of the UP College of Music. They performed Asian pieces, 9 as part of the programme, 2 as encore. The performance was beautiful—joyful, challenging, and at times, sorrowful. We’ll never forget this. Thank you @likealover @luluan31 and Melo for inviting us. Congratulations to Dr. Ramon Santos as well, he is finally awarded as a National Artist (photographed at the lower left, taking photographs). #music #performance #art  (at Church of the Risen Lord (UP Diliman))

Yesterday’s #lunchbox by #gamerchef was gohan, japanese-style mixed rice. So yummy. He makes me excited for my long breaks because I get to eat. A LOT! This recipe had pork, mushrooms, soy sauce, mirin, sesame oil, garnished with sesame seeds and green onions. More days like these please? (Unphotographed: a giant slice of Estrel’s cake! Been craving cake. Now I want mooore!) #lunch  (at University of the Philippines Diliman)

Today’s #lunchbox by @grace_pangga is chicken black mushroom. I now like my lunch breaks. Guard was so nice when he asked why I eat my lunch so late. 11:30-1:00 classes everyday, so I can’t help it. Glad there’s something to look forward to though. #lunch  (at University of the Philippines Diliman)
