It’s been weeks now of thinking and searching, and still I’m confused. I can’t decide which one I’m going to take. I’m not a professional but I just want to have a reliable one for my blog, and of course for our trips. For months, I’ve been shooting from my hubby’s I phone or my old sony camera but I’m not satisfied with it.

 Canon 1000D or

 Nikon 3100D

 Any opinion or suggestion? I just can’t make up my mind…




Few weeks ago we went to Dubai to meet my friend’s haute couture, Jules Quirante. His shop is located in Rigga, just a block away from the metro station. At 1st look of the shop, I thought all of his designs are for Arabic ladies only but mind you as we talked, he has Filipina brides as well. My friend told me that she saw other designs when she went there before, so without any questions asked we gave her a go signal.

The design for my friend is very simple yet very elegant. We are all excited to see the outcome soon. Aside from he’s a kabayan, we speak the same language too which is bisaya kaya medyo palagay din ang loob namin.  And when it’s time to ask for discount, he gave us a good price since we are Kabayans. 

If anyone out there interested, call or email

Chinese Panda

There’s a very affordable restaurant in Dubai with a dish I wouldn’t want to miss every time I visit there. My bff doesn’t agree with me on this since they’re not a big fan of fried duck. Sabihin mang mababa ang kaligayahan ko… ilove it to pieces.

Here’s my fried duck:

Looks delicious to me yummm! Instead with full rice I opted for half rice and noodles.

Hubby got his combo chicken pepper and cashew chicken, of course w/ half rice and half noodles.


Happy monthsary

Yesterday was our 3rd wedding monthsary and we just can’t decide where to dine. Since both of us love to eat anything yummy we decided to try the Lebanese Mill Restaurant, located at 9th st., infront of starbucks and beside eva dolce.

While waiting for our food they gave a platter of vegetables, hummus, garlic sauce, olives and of course Arabic bread. I love their pickles and so ate all of it w/out sharing it to hubby… hehehe

For the main dish we ordered…

Vegetable platter

Grilled chicken wings w/ garlic sauce & fries on the sides.

Hubby had Grilled kabab.

The food was great and very affordable. I couldn’t ask for more. For dessert, I took home a blue berry cheesecake from Eva Dolce.

My piece of cake from eva dolce --- this is the best blueberry I had so far.


More salad please…

I took this picture a week ago and I totally forgot to blog about it. I thought I might share with u that I’ve gained weight since we got back from Philippines so I decided to include salad in our weekly menu. So here’s a pic of our ceasar salad.

Yummy isn’t it? And healthy too…



Perfect Beach Venue

Talk about beach weddings, Bohol is the perfect place for you. As one of my bff is planning their beach wedding, we’re so excited cause for sure it’s gonna be an amazing one. She really has lots of options when in terms to venue for the ceremony and reception, but of course she also has to consider the budget and location. So finally, Bohol Beach Club is the perfect venue for their wedding.

Here’s a sample pics of bbc’s….

The place is breathtakingly beautiful. Can’t wait to visit the place soon cause hubby and I were supposed to have a romantic dinner by the beach as a wedding gift by my super sweet cuzin Michael Bueno, but It didn’t realize since we ran out of time after the wedding.



Just the other day, we ended up eating sopas since the weather was a bit cold and I was also craving for it.
