Review: Oh My Geum-Bi

I can never figure out how to correctly write romanized Korean names. Commonly, Korean names are three syllables, starting with their last name, followed by a two-syllable first name. Is the second syllable in their first names capitalized or not? I know, these silly problems of mine! Continue reading

Review: Always Be My Maybe

Honestly, it seems like all they ever release these days are romantic comedies. It’s tiring to see the same plot both in TV and the movies, but I decided to give this a shot, for the sole reason that I like Arci Muñoz. It can’t be that bad, right? My personal experience dictates that Star Cinema movies are of good quality, so I hoped that this would be worth my time. Continue reading

Review: My Best Ex-Boyfriend

Nope! This isn’t about me. Hahaha. This is the title of a Chinese series that aired in 2015, which I’m watching now.

I found the show by accident through Viki, an app for streaming videos of Asian dramas (predominated by Korean and Taiwanese), Bollywood films, and anime. I was actually searching for a new Korean drama I can watch (the last one I’ve watched being Descendants of the Sun), but none of the uploads seem to be available in my country.

Review: The Breadery

This is my first ever post as a reviewer so please bear with me. 🙂

My eating routine during workdays usually includes me buying breakfast food every morning, around 9 AM. I buy food even if I had eaten breakfast at home, and even if I’m not that hungry. I just love breakfast food. I mean, there are times I crave for breakfast food even if it’s in the middle of the day! I usually eat tapsilog for lunch, cereal for dinner… but that’s probably best for another entry.

So today, my breakfast-food-loving self wandered into this newly-opened pastry shop called The Breadery, which is located just beside our office’s building. Prior to visiting the store, I was already informed by some coworkers that, although delicious, their prices were a little expensive compared to your usual bakeshops. However, that didn’t stop me because I was really in the mood for some filling pastries, which I wanted to pair with my baon Great Taste White Coffee. :)) Continue reading
