Food-ventures: Ramen Nagi Philippines | We tried all 4 signature flavors in just one day!

I've always loved food. Especially noodles. Anything noodles (dry or in soup). In fact, I had a phase when I was a kid, wherein I would always eat noodle soup every single day. And now that phase is making a comeback because I'm almost always craving for either wanton noodles or ramen. I'm kinda done with wanton though, and currently, it's still ramen.

Club Balai Isabel + Aqua Park | Our First Christmas Together!

Happy 2019! It still hasn't sunk into me that 2018 is already behind us. (In fact, my mind is still in 2018. LOL.) This Christmas, we opted to just stay at home (and get lots of sleep), which made me remember what a fun Christmas we had in 2017! That year, we decided to spend our first Christmas together as a married couple somewhere we can relax, have fun and enjoy each other's company. We chose to stay at Club Balai Isabel in Talisay, Batangas. It's a few hours away from Metro Manila, but the travel time is definitely worth it.
