To be honest, I wasn’t really familiar with this new ice cream joint called Bono Gelato until a friend of mine introduced it to me. I usually just gravitate to my staple favorites like the cheese and the pistachio ice cream flavors so I wouldn’t regret it when my family doesn’t like the flavor I chose and I will end up eating the whole tub of ice cream causing me extra calories and an unhealthy diet. Hello thunder thighs and flabby arms!
So when one of my blogger friends invited me to try out this new flavor from this Ice Cream joint I wasn’t really that optimistic and tried to lower my expectations simply because I didn’t like to be disappointed but then again maybe first impressions don’t always last especially in this case.
I have always believed in having a healthy work life balance. Simply put, you also have a life outside your work. That’s why I always list down my goals in my planner and keep tabs on it once in a while to ensure that I am making progress on my goals.
So far I guess I am on the right track since aside from working in my 9-5 job on a daily basis after work I usually go to the gym and ensure that I eat right, meaning I include more veggies and healthy options in my staple diet nowadays. Aside from that, I get to attend events again as much as my time permits and I am also entertaining other speaking engagements in the coming months. So before I get all consumed up once again in how my life had been these past few weeks let me recount first one of the foodie invites I went to just last week in Megamall. 🙂
It’s been two weeks since we celebrated Mother’s Day with my Lola and my Mom and what better way to give tribute to the 2 women who raised us and toiled all these years just to ensure to give us a good future than to treat them out for lunch and give them tokens of our appreciation to them.
With that said, just a couple of weeks back I got invited to a sit down lunch at Salu Restaurant in the confines of Tomas Morato and since it was near our place of residency after mass we went straight there to the place to celebrate Mother’s Day as well.
I have always loved good bargain finds meaning quality products that I purchase which give me good value for my money. Since I am quite stingy with what I earn I usually invest in fabrics which I can wear for a lot of my functions without seeming outdated or cheap. So when events like the Row101SummerPopUpBazaar comes up with another bazaar every passing year I know that I should not pass up on this one since I know that good deals like these are so hard to find and I must say it never fails to exceed my expectations.
Check out my awesome takeaways I got from the bazaar yesterday.
It’s almost the half of the year already. Hello May! 🙂 I guess you really lose track of the time especially if your busy. The first half of the year for me had been quite fruitful from finishing my MBA degree to attending family reunions since my uncles from the States came home after a long time to balancing work duties with my events.
Looking forward to many more changes in the coming months, now that I am officially done with my school I’m pondering on where to spend my spare time. Either I would consider teaching as a part time Professor in my Alma Matter to share my knowledge or go back to school and take up another degree or maybe attend more events and build on my online portfolio and pursue my hobby 🙂
Nonetheless, amidst all of these one thing is for sure I would still continue on attending events maybe not as often anymore since I’m also dabbling into other things as of the moment but for sure I would try to spare time for my hobby 🙂 With that being said, let me recount the recent foodie event I attended in Burger King where they introduced their new King 🙂 Read on to find out how it all boiled down 🙂
Millennials like us have been called many names like entitled, shallow, and self-centered. But we all know that this is not true. There is more to us than what meets the public eye. We have our own passions, were creative and imaginative and most of all we aren’t afraid to take the big leap just to express ourselves.
People may sometimes misconstrue what I say because I am outspoken most of the time and I make it a point to have my opinion heard especially if I have something to contribute to the table. However, I still give value to the counsel of the years and I do not discount their advice to me since they say that the best teacher is through experience.
So with the counsel of our mentors and our gutsy attitudes I know that we can change the world somehow 🙂 That’s why when I was invited a couple of weeks back to the event of PayMaya I didn’t really hesitate since they would launch their new millennial brand ambassadors and I was stoked to find out who they would be.
