A wise man once anonymously pronounced, "Forget love, I’d rather fall in chocolate." Equally in the same manner, I don’t need someone at the moment; I am just as happy (if not happier) with some cheesy romance movies and a little box of red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Coz’ the 14th of February is Single Awareness Day!

Today is also the perfect time to recognize your gorgeous girlfriends who love and accept you for who you are. Perhaps that is the ultimate reason why I love Valentine’s Day; everyone is wearing that occasional joyful smile that we usually don’t get to see. Fulfilling, as always.

And because I happen to really celebrate this holiday, it has become an annual tradition for me to give something sweet to those ladies who have touched my heart one way or another. You see, a woman’s heart is so soft that a simple act of romantic stunt can really make her happy. Really happy, as I’ve come to see it in my girlfriends’ eyes through the years. Well, the effort is totally worth it!

Who says I didn’t have a date (more like dates) last Valentine’s Day!? I actually had plenty. Hashtag, to all the girls I’ve loved before.

You know you love me. XOXO, Little Prime Suspect.

imageYou’d probably think that being diagnosed with acalculous cholecystitis (and asked to minimize, if not restrict, my fatty and salty intake) would curb my enthusiasm for the salty delights: no, it doesn’t. I once altogether swore to not eat fries again, but urgh, there are a million reasons why you just can’t say no to french fries!

image

Most especially if these french fries are served (for the lack of a better word) unlimited-ly. All you need is to buy one of their burger specialties every Tuesday (we now love Tuesdays, right?), and voila, the golden ticket to unlimited fries is yours (no sharing, of course).

Double Flamoo Burger (Php 139). This big-mac-sized burger is made up of Patty, Cheese, Apple Coleslaw and a bunch of veggies, served with thick-out fries. Drinks are exclusive, available at Php 30.

Whether they are curly, criss cut, shoestring, steak or seasoned, it really doesn’t matter; we just love French fries. Flamoo also serves a variety of grilled specials ranging from sizzling steak meals, Baked Mac N’ Cheese and buffalo wings. Plus, their burger specials, especially the Thomas Aquinas Burger (Php 199) is indeed for royalty.

Flamoo, Flame-Grilled Burgers is located at The Strip, Quezon Avenue Extension, Pala-o, Iligan City. Unlimited French Fries every Tuesday!

December 17, 2012. A year of seemingly lingering recovery and psychological restoration had passed, but remnants of the unforeseen catastrophe nicknamed Sendong that took thousands of lives in Mindanao are still evident. I am a living witness of the abominable tragedy! It’s not that I was directly affected by the storm. I was more than lucky not to experience the calamity myself, but more clearly, I wasn’t spared from the slow crushing agony of seeing people weep in pain because they lost their homes and families. So in commemoration, here’s a tribute to the Sendong victims!

WHAT I’M WEARING: One for Iligan shirt (Rayven Creatives),Light Brown Jacket (Penshoppe), Tribal Bracelets (SM Accessories), Brown Pants and Fashion Boots. Hype this on lookbook here.

Here’s the same “One For Iligan” shirt I acquired a year ago!

image

In actuality, I was completely out of shirts to wear (by out, I mean, scarcity of new shirts) and I was staring wholeheartedly at my closet for quite a time realizing the possibility that I might get late in my Statistics prelim exam if I didn’t decide fast! Intuition (or just a keen eye for fashion) helped me reach a decision: so I chose the black shirt in recognition to Sendong, hurriedly grabbed my Penshoppe jacket and ran to school on full speed.

image

The exam was beyond simple (thank God!) but due to the verifiable truth that I always skip lunch, I was starving after the exam. Kinda asked Legine, who happens to be starving too — more like all the time, HAHA, to take a photo of me wearing the shirt, so the random photo shoot follows! With the rest of the b*tches, we then went to Jolibee and talked about Sendong and some utterly serious stuff!
