Eat Girl: Nahm (Asia’s 5th Best Restaurant)

When Lauren and I arrived in Thailand a couple of weeks ago, we went straight to our hotel to get settled. We were a little hungry from our flight and it just so happened that our hotel, COMO Metropolitan had a 5-star restaurant at its lobby. It was 2:30PM and the kitchen was just closing…

What are you thankful for?

My band Cheats has a song called Sleepist. It’s a fan favorite because of how relatable it is – it’s all about wishing you had no work today and wanting to just sleeeeeeeeeep again. I jokingly call it the anthem of the privileged millennial (i.e. “magpasalamat nga tayo na may trabaho tayo, no?!” LOL) although…

Hi guys! I’m back again!!! 20 minutes before I have to leave for the airport! Flying to Vancouver from New Jersey to attend my friend’s wedding. But before that, here’s episode 2 of my New York special of SaabTV! Thank you so much to Jim, my producer HAHAHA. Through these start-up vlogs we are learning…

Wear Your Feelings

On a random night in August 2015, Jim asked me to join him for dinner with our friend Ali Sangalang. I agreed to go because Ali always made us laugh with his witty one-liners when we’d see him at parties. Jim and Ali have been friends since the third grade. As a matter of fact…

Anniversary in Siargao: A Surprise From Jim

On our second morning in Siargao, I woke up bright and early! I let Jim sleep in a little bit more while I read my Miranda July book over coffee. Once Jim woke up, we headed straight to Very Good Nice for another surf sesh — do I sound gnarly yet?? Yuck haha. We were…

Anniversary in Siargao: Villa Maya + Shaka + Kermit

I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since I married Jim. We’re not very big on celebrating birthdays and other holidays but we promised each other we’d always celebrate our wedding anniversary! My birthday is in November, Jim’s is in December. Our agreement is to not spend much on gifts and save up for yearly…

Japan Holiday: Kyoto Cooking Class & Tour

The last time Jim and I were in Kyoto was during our honeymoon in February 2015. It was also when I first experienced snow. It fell right as we stepped outside after our cooking class. It’s definitely filed under “core memory” in my brain. As we had such a wonderful experience then, we wanted to…

JAPAN HOLIDAY: Matsusaka Beef in Osaka

On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: Matsusaka Beef. We rode a bullet train to Osaka from Tokyo on the 29th and though it was my second time to ride a shinkansen (Japanese for bullet train), it was my first time to ride a “green car.” It’s equivalent to an…

Eat Girl: Beshies Christmas Dinner at Yuan

Last night I went to Christmas dinner with some of the beshies! We decided to go to Janna & Brent’s newly-opened restaurant called YUAN along Brixton st., Kapitolyo. It serves yummy Asian fusion cuisine! I would recommend ordering the DIY SUSHI if you’re on a first date or something — makes for a fun activity…
