Life outside a crate

As many of you know, I am a mom to a wonderful beagle named Snoopy, who is now 1 1/2 year old. Life with Snoopy didn’t start out easy–potty training, chewing stuff up, and the infamous beagle bolts and the energy! But now, we have reached harmony. We have a routine we have been following since the day he arrived and dogs, as you know, live for routine.

Compilation #foodporn post: Burgers

Sometimes when I eat out, I’m not able to take a photo of each item we order. Other times, I’m alone. As a result, I tend to have only a few photos of each resto. Browsing through my album, I notice a common food item that has remained timeless over the years. Friends, let’s all welcome one of the best food creations ever–the Burger.

Here are some of the amazing burgers I’ve had during the past year.

Exploring Marikina: Dirty Harry’s Diner

As Marikina is continuously becoming more and more popular because of the many food havens, it is my family’s duty to explore the city we live in. Lilac Street is the most famous as a street for foodies, but we recently tried a restaurant in a lesser known street in Marikina.

Located at the 2nd floor of the Village Lifestyle building along Panorama street corner Vision street, Dirty Harry’s looks simple and inconspicuous.

Exploring Marikina: Beeffalo

Another Marikina gem: Beeffalo is a cozy restaurant near our house in Marikina. We have only eaten here twice, the first time being Papa’s birthday. This post is a compilation of the food we have ordered both times.

Summer escapade with the dogs! (Budget beach trip with style)

It’s the summer season already! Beach photos are once again flooding our timelines and news feeds. This is our first summer with our Snoopy, and like most dog owners, we wanted to take him to the beach.

However, we were on a tight budget so we had to look for a beach resort that would not be too expensive. We also wanted one that is not that far from Laguna. Thanks to Google and some friends, we found out about Katungkulan Beach Resort in Ternate, Cavite, which is also known as Boracay de Cavite. Dave and Christine joined us with their dachshund Derp, who is also actually Snoopy’s best friend. Oh when those two are together, it’s chaos, and they never get tired of playing.
