My SEXY BEAST Juice Cleanse Experience

Earlier this year, I started to become more conscious of my eating habits and *tried* to squeeze in some exercise after experiencing constant indigestion. My mindset was that I could ingest anything and everything because I was still young and I could easily get away with it. But nope, I could feel my health deteriorating after back to back binge eating, especially when I travel. I had to frequently take Domperidone after every meal just to ease my nausea, stomachache and vomiting.

Restaurant Review: Kushikatsu Daruma from Osaka

If there’s one country that I could get an unlimited flight pass to, that would be Japan. It’s not just because of the cheap but high quality Japanese cosmetics, giant wastelands like Daiso or Don Quixote, the kind people and the culture, but I keep on going back because of the yummy food! I don’t research on restaurants before going because most of the places I’ve walked in to have pleasantly surprised me with a wonderful meal but there are also a few restos that I like to tick off before leaving a city.  The problem is, like any popularRead more

But damn, they have the best Xiao Long Bao in Manila. InRead more
