Of cakes, breads, and cafes: Icings

Image
So my friends and I decided to have a night out after a couple of months. The initial plan was to dine at Bannaple (Market! Market!), because it was one of our favorite restaurants. Unfortunately, Bannaple had its entrance full with customers in queues. So we decided to look for other alternatives, and luckily just a stone's throw away from the crowded resto was Icings.
We were hesitant to go inside at first (it was our first time there). I mean, the place was posh looking. It was small but spacious and the ambiance was just relaxing. We were greeted by their very hospitable staff and after being seated were given the restaurant's menu. Being the timawas that we were, we scanned through their creatively-pieced-together menu for quite a long time. After mentally calculating our orders so that we will not end up washing their dishes we ordered the following:
100 Tomato Pasta Classic Caesar Salad A slice of Choco Caramel Cake
They have a wide selection of unique and hearty pastas one…

I want one of these!

I decided on posting this here to remind myself that I need to have one of these CBTL journals!

Taylor Swift drops "Out of the Woods" from her upcoming album 1989

Image
After the release of her massive hit single “Shake It Off”, Taylor Swift dropped the second track from her highly anticipated album “1989” earlier today.
The 80’s sounding track “Out Of the Woods” is written and recorded by Swift alongside Jack Antonoff of fun. and Bleachers. The song is Swift’s recollection of a snowmobile accident involving an ex.
After listening to the song non-stop, I realized why the track’s chorus is repetitive. It was meant not only because it sounded good but also because the chorus magnified the message of the song clearly.
It’s like Taylor Swift is insistently asking if their relationship (with whomever she was talking about in the song) was built to last and if they were already past the woods which represent the circumstances that tested and shook the very foundation of their relationship.  Or maybe, just maybe it was heading on to a different direction. That’s how I see it.
Watch the inspiration behind her latest track “Out of the Woods” and how it came to b…

College Throwback Songs

Image
I believe it is too early for #ThrowbackThursday. Pardon my excitement, because if I don’t continue writing this one I might forget the very reason why I started this throwback entry. So here we go…
(Edited: Yup, it took me nearly 2 months before finally deciding on posting this delayed blogpost here.)
I am a sentimental person and also a music lover. Combine those two and the result is a nutty human who tends to incorporate songs to most of his unforgettable experiences and encounters. The best part of being soppy about almost everything is the fact that whenever I listen to these tracks the memories will automatically fill me and transport me specifically back to my college days. It’s a relief because whenever I’m visited by those memories especially the happy ones it’s hard not to laugh and smile. And there are also sad and bitter recollections I’d like to forget but still I’m happy to have experienced. So let me take you back to my younger years. Enjoy!

WANTED: A dream job

Image
I have been thinking about this for a while and it dawned on me that I need to make a blogpost out of this important matter (so that I can hit that elusive 30K Pageviews HAHAHA!).
What was your dream job before you graduated from College? Is it the same job you have right now?
Why I am asking these? Because I believe I should've asked these questions earlier in my professional career. I should have planned out everything before I went over and searched for possible companies to work at. And because I believe that anyone must never stop himself from attaining his dream job.
Professionally, Software Testing has always been my passion. I mean, I like editing videos, photography, writing, and blogging, but I don’t see myself doing these in a professional setting. I also think that being exposed with QA stuff during my internship cemented my love for testing software products and applications. It just so happened that after graduation I forgot focusing on getting a job that suits me and m…
