A Sunday Tea Affair

The affair started a year ago. A group of us used to work together where we bonded over work drama and secretly meeting at restaurants to run away from our daily stressful lives at work. Somehow, we outgrew meeting at random restaurants over the months and one day, we decided to meet at a tea house. The affair became much deeper. I wasn’t quite sure if it was the love for tea or food or both but, since our first rendezvous at The Tea House on Los Rios, we knew we had to keep our tea meetings going.  Continue reading “A Sunday Tea Affair”

Birthday Brunch with a view at Orange Hill Restaurant.

There’s no denying that birthdays is a special day. I think most people will want to do something nice to celebrate on the day that they are born or not (whichever one prefers). It could be a simple staying at home or in my case, going out for brunch.

Last weekend, my roommate introduced me to a restaurant that she believed I would enjoy.

Not My Usual Route

Early this morning, I decided at the last minute that I wanted to go for a run at a nearby park for a change other than my usual gym routine. As luck would have it, google suggested Cedar Grove Park which was approximately 5 min. away from my home. I quickly checked on Instagram to get a feel for the place and sure enough, images peeked my interest. So, I made my way to the park…. Continue reading “Not My Usual Route”

Happy Hour at Mizu Sushi Bar & Grill

Yesterday I rushed home hungry and ready for some sushi. I was invited by my roommate as she sold me on the idea of a cheap sushi place she knew. I was a bit wary at first as ‘cheap’ sushi did not sound appealing to me. Although, I gave her a chance since I was craving sushi and I was hungry. I’m glad I did because the food was pleasantly good.  Continue reading “Happy Hour at Mizu Sushi Bar & Grill”
