This is my food, travel, and lifestyle blog.

Newly married, living in a new city (London, UK), and taking on a brand new chapter in life, this blog is my record book for things that I am learning and discovering along the way. Soon to be thirty and driven by the desire to live long (and prosper), I’m now raising the bar in the way I cook, eat, move, work, laugh, love, and do things. As a Filipina in London, I am also sharing the challenges of being an expat and holding on to your identity while enjoying my new home. If you find yourself on the same chapter of your life, you might find something useful here.

 Scroll down and enjoy!
