It's all white

When you and your officemates suddenly show up at the office wearing the same hue, it's a photo worthy moment.

White was definitely the color of the day.

Dany's da bomb!

Of course everyone at work was talking about the season finale of Game of Thrones! It was nothing short of "explosive."

One thing's for sure. I'm Team Dany all the way. Heck, I even wore my Daenerys shirt to work!

Dany rules!!!

Missed hymns

Whenever I hear mass, I'd hear all these new church hymns and new arrangements of classic ones.

While it's great that they're making the hymns dynamic for the younger parishoners, I can't help but miss the old hymns that we'd sing as kids.

Such as this classic:

We'd always sing "Spirit of God" when I was in the church choir. And it always gave me goosebumps when we sang it.

It still does.

Occasionally, I declare "foodie Friday" at the office and whip something up for the creative folks.

It can be as simple as ice cream, or chips and dips, or Lola-bought churros.

Yesterday, I decided to put on my chef's hat and make sandwiches for the team. We had a variety of fillings - pulled chicken bbq, assorted cold cuts, and Aysee's sisig!

Needless to say, we had a lot of happy stomachs at work.

FMM: This space reserved

A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon this youtube page that featured duets from different decades.

One of the songs they featured was this classic Dionne Warwick duet from the 80s.

I haven't heard this song in a while. It's such a romantic song, and the voices of Dionne and Kashif blend together so seamlessly. Plus, you can feel their chemistry in the song. Just by listening to it, you can almost feel how they can't live without each other.

This song is now reserved as a Friday Magic Madness ditty.

It's that time of the year again.

Time to steer clear of H&M, lest you want to come home with bags and bags of clothes and shoes at awesome prices!

Must. Steer. Clear.

Oh, samosas!

Three cheers for food discoveries!

I discovered a place that sells really good veggie samosas for only P25 a pop!

Looks like this is my new favorite snack.

Because everyone misses the 90s

As I wrote a few weeks ago, the 90s cult classic - Whammos - made a comeback.

It seems like a lot of people missed it, because everytime I go to buy it at the 7-11 near the office, this is what I see.

Good thing the branches near the house are stocked better.

Full Disclosure: The box above was full when I got there. I was the one who bought everything.

Luk, it's Foo-ther's day!

Chinese food was the theme for our Father's Day lunch. And it was at Luk Foo, an often overlooked restaurant which serves really good Cantonese cuisine.

It's been many, many, many years since I last ate at Luk Foo. Rediscovering it with family made the food even better.

Pop goes the world

This is the man who I inherited my looks, demeanor, generosity and heart from. And that was most obvious this year - a surprising and delightful discovery, actually.

Happy Father's Day!
