Till this day, 18 months into the marriage, I still find it strange when friends ask me, “SO HOW IS MARRIED LIFE?” Once I finish giving them a quizzical look,…
Valentine’s Day, this year was a special affair for H and I. Aside from it being our first Valentine’s as a married couple, we went back to the place that we first watched the spectacular sunset together in Manila almost 4 years ago: SM by the Bay. It is hard to forget a sunset that painted the sky flaming orange, deep blue and pastel pink.
Our relationship status may have changed, but the sunsets at SM by the Bay sure haven’t. I have been going to SM Mall of Asia since my first trip to Manila, there is always so much to see and shop! However, it was only recently that I discovered the wide array of food options, entertainment and fun park rides at SM by the Bay!
I love art, but I cannot for sure say that I am a connoisseur of it. Certainly, I can appreciate the effort, beauty and the creativity behind each piece. So after touring 3 levels of the Art Fair Philippines, I was inspired to create some art with the lines of the car park.
I call it “Crossing the Line”. What do you think?
Perhaps I will leave the creativity to the professionals. Haha.
There was a good mix of both local Filipino artists, art galleries and international artists present at the 2016 Art Fair. Here are some of the awe-inspiring pieces at the 2016 Art Fair Philippines.
It has been almost over a month since H and I last moved here in Manila and we have been indulging ourselves and getting to know the Filipino culture quite well (read: FOOD FOOD FOOD!)
We didn’t think that we would actually miss Singapore food since we were just there, but when we heard about the SG50 in Manila celebration put together by the Singapore Embassy, and the food stalls that were going to be there, we just could not say no.
We missed the celebrations in Singapore on August 9 because we were in the States doing a (sort of) patriotic thing by getting married, so this was a nice way of making up.
So this is it. We have been talking about moving to Manila for the longest time, and now, we have finally done it.
After several days of house-hunting, H and I have found a space to call our own. We are renting a simple studio apartment for the next 2 months until we find something more permanent. The Fort, aka Bonifacio Global City (BGC), is our hood. We chose this location primarily for its proximity to Unit 27, but also for the ease of being able to walk to wherever we want/need.
Our space is not much, but I absolutely love it. Here’s a quick tour of the place:
