When Simple Is Not Simple

This entry was originally posted on my WordPress account on March 5, 2016.    How do you define simplicity? What is simple to you? My definition of simplicity may be waaaaay too different than yours and here’s why. I want things simple, that’s what I said to Ino about our wedding. I want a simple married life, a simple wedding and a simple website. However, I’m really struggling with how I want to execute the simplicity in my visions. When I told Ino about wanting a simple married life, I envisioned that we will just get by with whatever we have and…

An Accidental Date in Intramuros, Manila (#6years&9months)

This entry was originally posted on my WordPress account on February 27, 2016. I haven’t written anything about this post since I posted it 4 days ago. These photos were taken last February 23, 2016. Ino and I somewhat celebrated our 81st monthsarry or 6 years and 9 months anniversary in Intramuros, Manila. We initially planned to process my papers at the Archdiocesan Chancery Office Arzobispado de Manila for my baptismal certificate’s amendment. We also planned to go to the church (where I had my baptism) on the same day. We had lunch at KFC nearby Manila Cathedral, then we went to Intramuros…

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones / Shadowhunters

Here are random stuff from reminders, what transpired today and my second TV Series review. DISCLAIMER: My personal review for this TV series is based on my personal character preferences or biases, book recognition, and movie adaptation. I wasn’t paid to make a review for the said program. Ino downloaded Shadowhunters (The Mortal instrument’s City of Bones TV series) recently and we’re supposed to be on our 4th episode. We haven’t watched it yet because we were sidetracked by other things. I think he got intrigued by it because we’ve seen the The Mortal instruments: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare…

Laser, Bingsu, and Bibimbap

This entry was originally posted on my WordPress account on February 1, 2016.   Happy Sunday! I’ve been inactive for sometime because of work and the wedding planning. Now that I’m back, I’d like to feature my first skin care clinic, my go-to mall and two go-to places for the best Korean food experience in Mandaluyong City, Philippines. DISCLAIMER: These establishments didn’t pay me to advertise their services. I am just very satisfied with their services and products that’s why I’m blogging about them. If you wish to be featured in my blog, please contact me through my about me…

Goals For 2016: A Semi-New Year’s Resolution

This entry was originally posted on my WordPress account on January 3, 2016.    SOURCE: http://www.amomentwithfranca.com   A year ago, I posted a blog about not having a New Year’s Resolution. I read it again and realized that I still believe in what K Brosas said on her Instagram post. Change shouldn’t be a fad every January 1. It should be a start of your vow to yourself. If you want to change, it shouldn’t be because it’s a new year. It should be because you really want to change for the better. A lot of my contemporaries are done writing…

Komiket 2015

This entry was originally posted on my WordPress account on January 1, 2016.   This post is long overdue. I am not a huge fan of comic books, unlike Ino. Actually going to Komiket was his idea. I don’t know much about comics or Filipino comics in general. I am not quite familiar with the who’s who of Filipino comics but I used to read Beerkada by Lyndon Gregorio on Philippine Star when I was in grade school or high school. So, I had my fangirling moment when I met him at Komiket. These photos were taken at Komiket in Centris last…

Bobby Box

This post was originally posted on my WordPress account on January 1, 2016.   BobbyBox is a Korean Restaurant located at Retail J, Cyberpod Centris 3, Eton Centris.   Ino and I went to our first Komiket last October 3, 2015. We went to Centris around 1 or 2 pm. We were quite hungry already when we arrived so we scouted for a good restaurant nearby. Lucky for us because BobbyBox was really near Centris Elements, where Komiket 2015 was held.     Ino and I are suckers for Korean food. So, we instantly fell in love with their Bulgogi and…

My 2015

I’d like to express my gratitude to everyone that I’ve met this year. It’s not only the people that I’ve met that I’m thankful for. I am also treasuring the good times and the bad times that I have experienced all throughout the year. Life was indeed a roller coaster ride. It was a journey. From my numerous trials and defeats in becoming a Team Leader, to becoming a soon-to-be-wife. Who would have thought that I would be engaged on Christmas Eve? In front of Ino’s family, he asked for my hand in marriage, and since I’ve been waiting for…

Ulam Nation

This entry was originally posted on my WordPress account on September 17, 2015. Last Monday, Ino and I went to Ulam Nation in Brgy. Plainview in Mandaluyong City to have lunch. It is near Citihomes so instead of going to Tapa King, we decided to check out this restaurant for a change. The place was huge and spacey. However, the food plating was simple and the taste was also so-so. Don’t get me wrong, a simple plating is okay but they could have thought of a better way to present their dish to make it more appealing. Perhaps it was…

Sebastian’s Ice Cream

This entry was originally posted on my WordPress account on  August 15, 2015.   Hello! We went to Podium in Ortigas, Pasig City today because I need to close my Smart Bro account. After that, we strolled at the mall and saw the ice cream parlor which reminded me of Mati‘s post. Ino rarely offers to buy stuff when we roam around and hang-out (most especially if he’s on a tight budget.) When he offered, I knew that he just meant that we will share a scoop. I knew that he likes Cookie Dough so I ordered it and payed it myself.…
