Almost There

08.24-25.14: Of weekend getaways

Hello, dolls! ūüôā Happy hump day! Aaaah what a beautiful “weekend” it has been. Usually, I would be bummed that our almost 3 day weekend is now over. But since I know that we only have 9 days left until we begin our journey to¬†forever,¬†I don’t think there is room for me to complain. We are getting close!!! We will be home in less than 2 weeks! Which reminds me of the time I went home for my Dad’s 50th birthday, back when it would take me more than a day to travel to the Philippines. The flight alone is already exhausting, the layover and waiting makes it even more draining so I like to have at least a whole day where in I do not have to worry about anything including packing before my loooong flight —¬†that’s why A and I likes to schedule our trips from Baltimore after on or after Monday.


A and I 12 hours before my flight to Manila last year..brought back a lot of memories when I left Baltimore 2 years ago to go home.


Love waking up to this!!! Continue reading “Almost There”


Ren’s Ramen

02.09.13: Everyday is Valentine’s day

The shallow me has been paying my world a visit more than the usual lately. It’s been telling me that everything will change soon. But, my happy and mature self has been telling me to pay no mind cause life just keeps on unfolding ¬†beautiful things right before my eyes during the least times that I expect them. I am anxious and excited at the same time. Summer 2013 will be nothing but a fun ride. I am excited to see my family after more than a year, and make each day count more and more. I am also excited about the life ahead of me. I feel like my life is planned and unplanned at the same time that all I can think about is how awesome it would be on 2014. The year has just started,and I am already excited about next year,is that even acceptable in anybody’s book? Maybe yes, all I know is.. I am blessed ūüôā


I can’t remember the last time that the both of us had a decent Friday schedule. After working for an opening shift, the both of us¬†hurriedly dressed up at work and drove to Rockville,almost near DC and a beautiful place to find Asian restaurants.


I watched Ramen Girl again for the nth time, this time with him. We probably skipped a few scenes just because he was only interested about the ramen..but yeah, it made him google map the word “Ramen” and only one restaurant showed up…


Ren’s Ramen. ¬†

A hole in the wall restaurant that brought joy in our hearts and delight in our tummies. All I can think about is how exceptional everything was. It felt like a dream…my mouth was probably dreaming while savoring the ramen.. oh God.


Yakisoba will always be a favorite of mine. I never understood my Mom when she would never miss in ordering out Yakisoba when we are in a Japanese restaurant until one day, I craved for it and ordered Yakisoba with a friend one lunch date way back during my Culinary days.

RR’s yakisoba¬†jump-started¬†our date night. It was not too salty and the flavors were just right. YUM!


I ordered one of their specials Chanpon Men.

This was just too perfect for me! Seafood with lots of veggies¬†flavored¬†with sesame oil. Ren’s Ramen is a sapporo style ramen house. The noodles was just…. amazing. I have no words but…. I WANT THIS BABY NOW!!!!!


Gyoza ¬†as our “supposed to¬†be¬†appetizer”. I did not really pay too much attention on this since the ramen overpowered my sanity.




Since it was a breezy Friday date night, I’ve decided to go for a not-so-girly outfit. Wore this top from¬†Gap¬†that my sister sent me! Too perfect for the winter ūüôā



Used black accessories to give more edge to my plain winter top/dress



I am so in to self shots lately. Haha #ForgiveMe



Happy girl,

R <3 xx
