Kape Barako from Philippines



Thanks to my friend for this gift. This is a Kape'ng Barako (English: Barako Coffee). Barako is from the Tagalog word "Wild Boar" who are fond of dining on the plant's leaves and berries. Barako is a coffee grown in the Philippines, particularly in Batangas and Cavite.

Having this in the morning reminds me of home.

Ang sarap ng umaga kapag may kapeng #baraco. Thanks @regie_uy and @ian_ty. #Filipino #TeamManila

January 2015 is a blast.



Welcoming 2015 is a blast as I got to celebrate it with my best friend and her family in Dubai.

12 months of my 2014 were AMAZING!

January 2014

Boom! US visa approved with 10 years validity. In 2013, I already set my mind that I will be going for vacation in the US by 2014. I learned that, once you set your mind to achieve your goals, it will happen, as long as you don't procrastinate.



Joined the Dubai Marathon and finished the 10k run.

You may find this shallow, but this pixie haircut has been a plan for the longest time. Finally, got it right. Hairstyle made in the US.

Belize City, Belize
Went to the museum, got to know a little of their history. The party in the beach was something that really stuck in my mind.

Roatan, Honduras
I admit, I was tired walking, we didn't see that much. Though it reminds of Philippines. They have clear water just like in Palawan.

Bought this motorcycle and made it as tricycle for a little business. As the saying goes "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."

Helped someone I don't know.

Signed up for Dubai Marathon 2015

Last week, I posted in my Instagram that I will be joining the 2015 Dubai Marathon.  My goal for 2015 is to loss some weight and to tone my muscles.  That's why yesterday, I started preparing my infused water.  Wish me luck :)
