Draw the line.

"Meaning is not something you stumble across nor what someone gives you. You build it through every choice you make, through the commitments you choose, the people you love, and the values you live by. For me, it begins with the choice to learn. Learn all the time. Learn all your life."

Maria Ressa, 2012 FEU Commencement Address

Slice High St

I have a new favorite place – Slice High St.  It’s located in the new block of Boni High Street, right beside Jamba Juice.  They have wonderful, heavenly desserts.  My favorites are the Choco Yema and the Morning Glory.  Other notables are the deep dish chocolate chip cookie, and banana pudding.  And they have good food too.  I was able to try their Barbecue Chicken Rice Melt (they use brown rice) and I couldn’t get enough of it!  Slice High St is my new “comfort place”.

The TV Shows I Follow

I watch A LOT of shows. But I’ve never really counted them, and I was inspired to count when a friend mentioned that he follows 30 shows.  So, let’s do this…

The Cranberries Live in Manila

The Cranberries

I watched The Cranberries Live in Manila last April 10 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.  Though the venue was only 65-70% full, the crowd was still great.  And kudos to the group who gave it their all.  After all these years, Dolores’ voice was still the same, beautiful, haunting, powerful.  The group started with Dreams which was immediately followed by Linger.  The last song before the encore was Zombie, and the very last song was Salvation.  It was a great night.

Check out the full photo album here.  And check out The Cranberries’ new album, Roses.

I have never followed Dancing With the Stars. But I will start following it now that I have “discovered” Derek Hough.  He’s such a great dancer!

The dandelion…

What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again. And only Peeta can give me that.

My Jujucleanse Experience

Level 2 Jujucleanse

I found out about Juju Cleanse because of a tweet, and I immediately checked out their website.  I researched a bit, and decided that I would try a 1 day cleanse during a long weekend.  I wanted a do it on a long weekend so that I will have a couple of days to recover, if necessary.  I wasn’t sure how the cleanse will affect.  And so the Holy Week was the perfect time for it.

Derek Hough and Maria Menonous and the Rumba

I’ve never followed Dancing With The Stars.  But because of this dance, I just might follow the current season.  That dance was hot AND beautiful!

The Hunger Games

As a fan of the series, especially the first book which for me is the best of the three, I was absolutely happy with the movie. It was (almost) perfect. I am absolutely amazed that they were able to come up with a QUALITY movie, one that you can really be proud of. It feels like this will easily be a classic.
