I've never really liked moving to different homes frequently.  Although it's actually a good excuse to take stock of all the junk inside the house; but still, it's a necessary evil for us.  That advantage aside, moving to and fro various places also gives us a chance to explore new territories and uncover hidden gems.

Take our new favorite park, for instance, located just across the street from our abode in Singapore.

Bedok Reservoir Park

Bedok Reservoir Park, a 417,000 m² former sand quarry turned into a luscious green oasis in the middle of various towering residential buildings.

Our green oasis

This being a reservoir, it is but expected that a lot of the visitors come here to partake in various water sports and activities (like fishing and dragon boat racing).  It's also popular place for skaters, bikers, and joggers; or if you're like us, the perfect place to take a leisurely stroll.

So peaceful


Simply put, it's really nice, green place for lazing around, too.

Just right for our little bonding moments.

One happy family


In the grand scheme of things, it's these simple, precious, meaningful moments that make the most lasting of memories, don't you think?  J

  2. The Bedok Reservoir is a right in front of the condo block of my cousins, whom I stayed in my first time in Singapore back in 2010. It's so nice, very quiet, during weekends you can see people running and families strolling.Maybe the closest version of Manila is the La Mesa Ecopark?

  3. It's nice that they're still keeping parks over there even if everything is so modern and busy :)

  4. I love going to parks. Those trees seem to just want to embrace me and ease me of all my worries.

    There's just so much to see in Singapore. Yes, it's the simple joys which matter the most.

  5. Might be going to SG soon! Will bookmark this place. The only garden I went to when I was there was the Botannical Garden.

    This seems like a good place for a picnic :)

    1. Yup, it is. But now that you mention it, I don't see a lot of picnickers here. A lot of sports enthusiasts though. =)

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
