Tini tries to cook: chicken sisig

If there’s one thing positive that happened in my life during the quarantine, then I guess it would be the discovery of a new hobby: cooking. I’ve been a foodie for as long as I can remember, but I never really had the passion to cook (maybe because I’m too lazy to wash the dishes…

Welcome to Casa Berganza!

Today, I bear good news! Last January 13, we welcomed two new members of Casa Berganza: Nutella Tu and Jolina Maritess (yeees, seryoso hahaahah!) You might be wondering, what in the world is Casa Berganza?! Our extended family consists of five (now seven) dogs and one cat. Sadly though, we’ll have to give away Nutella…

Adulting for dummies: a birthday blog

Hello, dear readers! It’s been a while since I last blogged (properly??!). 2020 has been a difficult year to survive, not just for me, but most probably for everyone across the globe. Honestly, I felt so uninspired. I felt like I’ve become a prisoner of my own mind where anxiety and depression served as my…

Finally, 2020 is over.

2020 has been a tough year for everyone and many (if not all) of us just can’t wait for this cursed year to be over. A lot of things happened even if we were just locked in our own homes. Our family had our media noche at 11:30 PM. I must admit that we weren’t…

BAGUIO 2019

Read Sagada blog part 4 here. We reached Baguio around 8 or 9 PM. After dropping our things at our accommodation, we went to Hap Chan for dinner. Soon after, it was time for the night market! We had one or two hours to roam around. Obviously, it’s not enough. Haha! On that short period…

SAGADA 2019.4

Read Part 3 here. After an hour-long rest, we decided to have our lunch at Sagada Lemon Pie House. We saw this restaurant on our way back from Sumaguing Cave the night before. We haven’t really roamed around the area so we decided to just walk from our accommodation to the Lemon House. The town…

SAGADA 2019.3

  Disclaimer: photo-heavy post ❤ Read Part 2 here. Day 2. 28 September 2019 (Saturday). We left Shagay Inn past 4 AM to catch the sunrise at Marlboro Hills, and boy it was definitely one of the best sunrise I’ve ever seen. I remember myself humming the Game of Thrones opening song because of the […]

SAGADA 2019.2

Disclaimer: there was a loooong break before this blog post was written so my memories might have failed me huhu. Anyways, rest assured that I’ll try my best to remember the details of our Sagada trip!  — Read part 1 here. It was already a bit late when we started the most exciting part of…

SAGADA 2019.1

  I felt the need to have a little “soul searching” these past few weeks. Nawawala kasi sya, char! Haha. But kidding aside, I was feeling depressed lately and I was bitterly craving for the healing powers of mother nature. Also, we all deserve a break sometimes especially now that we are in the last quarter of the…

Camiguin 2019.5

Read Part 4 here.   Day 3. 01 July 2019 (Monday). While we do have a few places left on our itinerary, we ended up just spending half of our day at the breath-taking Mantigue Island. Since we are housed in Yumbing, we had to travel for about an hour to get to the island. We…
