Live, Love, Travel

(Proudly Pinoy Food, Humor and Everyday Life)

The Philippines with its tropical weather and more than 7,000 islands, is a perfect getaway when everything returns to normal. The people are warm, hospitable and friendly. Join me as I unfold the beauty of the Country, its people, healthy foods and humor in everyday activities.

  • The Home Is Now A School!
    The new norm makes the home a school. Ariela who’s been home schooled ever since, shared her fresh insights about it. Her family’s experience on helping food banks is a beautiful story of caring and sharing during this pandemic.
  • Happiness
    There’s always a time to refresh, a time to rest after a long flight and a time to fly again. When I count all my reasons to stay well and healthy, I always think of my family and life’s beauty. Nature is happiness.
  • Boodle Fight!
    During this uncertain time, it’s always best to hold true to these values – camaraderie, brotherhood and equality. Boodle Fight, a Filipino tradition of eating using bare hands (kamayan) is a symbol of them, reminding us to always fight for what is good for everyone.

  4. You haven’t even mentioned the poetry. When I was still in California, a young man working at a coffee house introduced me to your great poet Jose Rizal. He was a great man and someone the whole country can take pride in. His story is amazing.
