If I wanted to, I could participate in the night life that the nearby bars in our house have to offer. Unfortunately, I'm too much of a homebody for that to actually happen. When I spotted a Facebook post that announced the opening of a cafe, I was more than delighted at the idea. We needed a bit of variety in that area anyway. Of course, I had to visit Cafe Rossa on the day of its grand opening:

Since the advent of the internet, a lot of mundane tasks have become easier to accomplish. One such example is shopping. If you're in need of something but do not have time to run to the store, then you can simply place an order online.
Most of us are busy people. Sometimes, we just do not have the luxury of making room for errands in our packed schedules. Before you know it, a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary will creep up on you and you'll be panicking over what to get for your loved one.
I've experienced this during the holiday season. It's difficult to invest time and energy on browsing stores in town without the assurance that you'll find what you're looking for right away. With online shopping, you need not walk from one store to another and look through dozens shelves or racks of gift items. With just a click, you can view a whole catalog of products. It's easier to narrow down your choices through a computer/laptop monitor than going back and forth at the mall.
Most of the usual gift items (like clothes, toys, electronics, etc.) can be easily found online. All you have to do is to take your pick and you're done. The items are delivered to your doorstep after a day or depending on your mode of shipping. If you're lucky, the online store you ordered from might even offer free gift-wrapping. That's really convenient, if you ask me.
Now, what's better than saving time through online shopping? It's the coupons and vouchers you can use to enjoy discounts! Sites like AntiRetailHome.com give you an opportunity to save up while placing orders online. You get to shop at your leisure and convenience while getting goods at lower prices. This is just one of the perks that modern technology has given us.

Nothing makes me happier than the opening of a new restaurant. The Fat Monk has probably been around for a about a month or two, and I've been looking forward to try it out. The people I follow on different social media accounts have been raving about the food, so this just added to my excitement. Yesterday, we were finally able to visit the restaurant for my birthday.

I have always had this fascination with basketball since I was young. I grew up with boys, so I was exposed to it early on. When I was in elementary, Slam Dunk premiered in the Philippines. That, and my crazy obsession for Kaede Rukawa, intensified my love for the sport. I even had mornings when I'd practice playing with my Dad. Although I don't get to hold a basketball a lot nowadays, I still feel this pleasantly familiar excitement every time I'm standing on a court.
Being the fangirl that I am, I just couldn't hide my happiness when I learned that there was going to be an NBA Cafe in the Philippines. I told myself that I'd really visit the next time I flew to Manila, and that's exactly what happened a few days ago.
