Ponggo & I have been craving for a vacation for the longest time now. For the past few months, we felt like we were always toiling the day (and night) away. We’ve been dreaming & daydreaming about these travel destinations:
Years ago, a friend of ours who really loves to travel shared with us Air Asia–newly rebranded as Air Asia Zest. We are continuously wowed by their affordable rates! Before, when we save up for our dream travels, we always feel a little guilty that we’ll be taking away a lot from our hard-earned money and that we might not be making the right choice. It’s like all those hard work will disappear in just a few days. But now with Air Asia Zest in mind, we no longer have to burden ourselves with that thought. We’re actually so excited it’s easier for us to whip up a dream destination list:
- Incheon, South Korea – Only Ponggo has been to South Korea so far & I don’t know how many times he has mentioned to me that he wanted to bring me there the next time: winter sports—skiing, ice skating at the ground floor of Lotte mall (because Ponggo always has a hard time plucking me out of the ice skating rink when I’m having too much fun making myself dizzy by spinning), beef-all-you can (Ooh…Galbi Gui, Kimchi…Hello! Hello! I can almost taste you!) and all the historical landmarks such as the Gyeongbok Palace. I’m already thinking about having an awesome photo walk if ever while treading the snowy white streets of South Korea—a different type of adventure!❤❤❤

2. Puerto Princesa, Palawan – We’ve been to different mountain peaks in the Philippines and we’ve also visited some crater lakes but we’re not really proud to say that we still haven’t been to Palawan. I don’t know anyone who has bad pictures from that place! It’s practically nature in its untouched form. Also, everyone has been raving about the trip to the underground river. We’re really curious because we know it’ll be a different journey from the rest of the places we’ve gone to.

3. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – The last time we visited Kuala Lumpur, we really had so much fun with newfound blogger friends but we feel that if we’re able to come back, we have lots more to explore! Kuala Lumpur is a shopping haven with
Hello folks! I’m back! I’m aliiive. Well, I was knocked down by a bad flu for two and a half days. I’m not feeling extremely well but I think half of the scary flu is gone. (I hope I didn’t jinx it just by declaring that it has walked away).
Anyway, last week, I was driving and a bunch of DJ’s were talking about premiering this song on radio “The Fox”. I was listening to the lyrics and I was going “What!?!?!” throughout the song. It was a cross between some nursery rhyme and a seriously produced pop song. Then, today, my sister finally showed me the video. I felt a couple of brain cells were dying each time I tried to replay it for the lyrics & visuals but hey, everyone needs these types of songs once in a while. It’s the why-didn’t-I-even-think-of-that song or let-me-show-this-to-my-friend-to-destroy-her-day video. Hope you enjoyed this version of “The Fox” a.k.a. “What Does the Fox Say?” by Ylvis!

The Life of a Cronut & Other Food Fads
What’s the latest food fad that you can think of? Remember how everyone wanted a jar of speculoos or how almost all the bakeries had their own versions of macarons? Have you noticed how all these cupcake bakeries popped up like mushrooms or how these pancake places multiplied from nowhere everyone almost forgot how easy it is to make one at home? Now and then some new dessert, food or drink rises to rock star fame and sadly, if the food’s career doesn’t fly, it also follows a rock star career’s demise & pushed into dessert obscurity or earns its regular Joe status. I can’t predict the future of cronuts accurately but all i can say is, they’re starting to get more & more common.
What do you think? Is the cronut here to stay?
