My Flair Life in Color, Rise When We Fall

I spent 2 days in different airports.  Went from one country to another, and I found out that the Philippines was crying because of the habagat.  It was a bit hard for me have fun in my trip when some of my friends were waist-deep in the flood.

I went home via Clark airport and I was so worried that Clark airport might be flooded as well, and my car would be flooded too.  Luckily it didn’t flood in Clark Airport and it is one safe place for my car, rather than I would have left it in my condo in Manila, my car would have been gone.

I got stranded in Clark area because NLEX was flooded and the rest of the roads I needed to cross to go home. 


With nothing to do, I was companied by music and color.  I brought my Urbanears with me.  I waited long hours in the airport, and more hours being stuck in Clark.




After the rains and the onslaught of the habagat, we rise again.  As always.

    Get Healthy and WIN!

    Hey guys, healthy living need not be booooorrrrriiiing.

    Two contests for the young — ahem, that’s me —- and the not-so-very-young are ongoing on Facebook. Really, there are so many contests there, but these two got my attention.

    For one, I’m into healthy lifestyle. Or I try my damned best to be. 

    Two, these contests are encouraging us to channel our creative juices to be funny, quirky, amusing, nutty but with good intentions.  Whoa!!!

    Anyway, if you’re all of the above…. Me, I’m batty all the time but lovable nevertheless — visit the Easy Pha-max Wheatgrass CAN fan page. Like that page before you send your entry.

    The mechanics of the two contests are also found there.

    1.       “Shake the Grass” video contest  –

    3 winners will be announced on August 19.

    How do you win?  3 categories such as Best Video, Most Liked and Most viewed.

    Cool cool prizes for each category:
    a.   Samsung Galaxy Tab for the Most Liked video
    b.   Most number of views –   P3,000 cash and this elegant Wheatgrass ready-to-drink shirt
    c.  An Apple iPod Touch 4th Gen 8gb  —  for the best video which will be determined on originality (50%), creativity (40%) and quality of the video (10%).

    2.        “I can change for the good” foto contest

    Prize at stake is dinner with Alodia and Ashley, plus a special Easy Pha-max gift pack. 

    Top 3 winners will be based on the most number of likes of their fotos, the best foto, and the best “I change for the good” pledge.

    So guys, I’m sure before the 57 days countdown, you would have had the time to create a video,  take a good foto of yourself and thought of a good promise you know you can keep.Winners will be announced on August 19.

    I always try to appear tall in photos and this time you see me tip-toe-ing 😛


    This is their Teriyaki Chicken barbecue.  They explained that their Teriyaki sauce is quite unique and they make it in a special way.

    Taste it to believe it guys :)

    Shokuji is known for their Sizzling Tofu Steak.  This picture right above was really yummy tasty and healthy!  You should order this and try it out if you happen to drop by :)

    Philadelphia Roll is my favorite! and this one didn’t disappoint! :)

    This is their Spicy Tuna Salad

    What’s special about their Ebi Tempura is that they use BIGGER prawns.  After the first bite, I can attest to the fluffiness of the meat :)

    Bistro Better Homemade Goodness

    Since I’m always away from home and I don’t cook, I always crave for home-made cooking.  Recently, I had a shoot for Buyanihan at Bistro Better and I am so glad I discovered the place!  The ambiance is very humble, cozy, and home-y.  The interior design was simple but full of artworks on the wall.  The food is something that you need to try.
