This is it. This will be my blog’s home. I opted to choose a shorter name than my previous blog. There are still some tweaks that I am currently doing but this is where I will be posting my entries from now on. I hope you can follow my stories about my craziness and time-to-time adventures.

Scroll down for new posts. If you happen to like what you see or read, or you would like to get in touch with me for whatever reason, there are buttons on the upper part of the right sidebar to do so.

Wakeboarding Love

Posted on October 29th, 2015 by Kristel

I don’t use the word “love” loosely because more often than not, it takes a while for me to get to that state. That pretty much goes for most of the things I do, except probably food. Would you believe, when I was younger, I hated traveling? I really did, I despised it. New York City was the first place I traveled to outside of the country and I swore not to go back because I hated the plane ride and the city so much. Years later, I was back…for two times in a span of 6 months.

Anyway, I digress. Moving to the topic that this post should really be about. Hehe. I’m writing about it because truth be told, I terribly miss it. I miss the water, I miss diversion, I miss looking forward to weekends. I miss the rush, the thrill and that physical challenge. I miss the speed, the act of balancing, and trying to be in control. I can’t help but to let out a big sigh. And this particular sport, when I started, I didn’t want to give it a go again because my body was aching and I had high fever when I first tried it out. But now, I’m constantly thinking about it.

Wakeboarding. I haven’t gotten around to being completely able to comfortably riding, but I once hoped I would get there. I still want to get there. I really don’t need to do exhibitions, rails and tricks. I’m completely fine being in water and struggle like hell just to get a ride right. My heart is aching just thinking about it.

Anyway, I’ll just leave you with some pictures because I don’t want to bore you on how difficult it was for me to even stand on it from end to end in a beginner’s lake when I started. That would be too embarrassing. Haha. The last time I went, I still ended up with a headache because I of too much impact against the water from falling off or being dragged by the cable. Sounds like torture? It really is not. I guess adrenalin pumping and some exercise along the way didn’t hurt.

Anyway, I do hope I get to ride pretty soon. I miss hearing different wakeboarding terminologies such as toe side (can’t hear this enough, I need this always), heel side, yiw, curve, jump start, slide start, etc.

Oh, and if you happen to have that time to learn, I suggest staying at CWC to learn to ride. I truly miss that place (love their cabin). I’ll do a more comprehensive post about that some other time. Until then! :)

Trying to work it, haha. I was so bad!

What a peaceful view

Day in and out, having fun in the water

First try with my own board =)

Persian Food Midnight Snack at Uncle Moe’s

Posted on July 19th, 2015 by Kristel

Hi guys! Here I am again trying to pin down an entry to my blog, because, you know, to have some sort of a diversion from my everyday hectic crazy life. Haha, too many adjectives, I know. Anyway, see, there’s this place on the south side of the Metro which I was brought to for some persian food cravings, past decent dinner times. I think we arrived in the area close to 12 midnight already.

Anyway, I ordered some hummus (Php 85) because I was really feeling the pang on my stomach because of hunger. Good thing it arrived quickly with 2 pita bread. Obviously, I wasn’t able to take a photo of it because I was too hungry to think about that at that time. I even ordered an extra pita (Php 20) because I swiped the 2 pita bread almost immediately.

And then other orders came, one of them was the kofta balls (Php 210) which is ground beef with cheese and tomato sauce. The taste had that curry tasting kick into it which went very well with the cheese. Truth be told, I really am partial to any food that has good amount to cheese so this one’s a winner for me. Order it! Better to have rice with it as well.

And since none can decide whether to get the beef or the chicken, what was ordered was the kebab platter (Php 188) with buttered rice. This order included 2 sticks of chicken and 2 pieces of beef served with salsa on the side. The beef had more flavour than the chicken which usually is the case, so next time, I might just get the beef instead. Both were quite good nonetheless.

So when cravings kick in even past dinner hours, this establishment would be something in mind. They should open a branch in Makati so that I can just drive quickly.

Elbert’s Steak Room: Prime Rib Haven

Posted on May 5th, 2015 by Kristel

I’m back soon enough? Hehe. I’m trying to keep my word and write ever so often, all for sanity’s sake. Anyway, it’s no secret that I like eating steaks. I don’t particularly like beef, but when it comes to steak (and salpicao), it would be very difficult for me to say no. Hehe. Anyway, so Elbert’s Steak Room has always been on top of my list to try to for so many years (I think for 8 long years) so, during my birthday last year, I figured, there is an excuse I could use to spoil myself a little. Smile with tongue out So, luckily, the place was only a few minutes drive from where I am working so it was not hard to get to that place.

Pardon the anime looking excited to eat face

Surfing in Daet

Posted on April 26th, 2015 by Kristel

Hi guys! Do you still know me? Hahahaha. I know, I know, it has been so long since I’ve written here. Believe me, I so miss writing and editing photos and putting up a blog post, re-reading the post, editing, saving and publishing. Haha. Sorry, I’m rambling. But really, I miss it all. The past few months have been so hectic. I seem to have been using that excuse about each and every hobby that I have but seriously, all I want to do during my free time is to lay down on my bed and doze off. I am not even keeping well with the news, local or international. Hay. That has to change really soon because my sanity is hanging by a thread.

Anywaaaaay. I’d just like to quickly write about my recent surfing experience in a new surf spot… while I can still remember the feeling. So after more than a year of surfing hiatus, I was finally able to do it again… unexpectedly. I did not know there was going to be surfing in the trip to Camarines Norte. A place called Bagasbas. I have heard of the place before but I did not know that the trip to Calaguas Island included a side-trip to Daet, where Bagasbas beach is.
