Pancit Pares

Yesterday, I got to explore Area 2 at UP Diliman. I was craving for some pares for lunch, so off I went to this quaint street filled with cheap student-friendly eats.

My craving was satisfied at Agaw Pancit. Their pares pancit was delicious, and served piping hot!

I’ve had plenty of wonderful memories at the UP Shopping Center. I used to frequent this fresh fruit shake stand there, and after a hot bowl of pancit, I needed something refreshing. Good thing I found the same fresh fruit shake stand at the end of Area 2.

I was satisfied with my Php50 carrot shake! I will definitely return for more fresh fruit goodness in the future.

I ended my day with a documentary at UP Film and some yummy vegan sisig made of mushroom and tofu from Good Clean Cart Area 2.

Exploring a new street is good for the soul, and fulfilling for someone who likes collecting experiences while on a tight budget. With my passion for life and positive outlook, I know that I can make it through each day, one memorable meal at a time.

Museum Hopping

Yesterday, I went to the National Museum of Natural History to watch Bird of Prey, a documentary on the Philippine Eagle. It was a beautiful film that captured the majesty and vulnerability of this regal animal.

After the film, I walked around Manila and went to the Metropolitan Museum of Manila to catch a lecture on Rembrandt’s life. It was also my first time at the museum, so I also viewed their modern art collection.

I ended my day with some cheesy gojuchang pasta and americano at my friend Bea’s cafe, Blocleaf. It was my first time to be in that cafe, and I loved the ambience, food, and coffee. I know that I’ll be back someday!

It was a treat to go museum-hopping and have some delicious food and coffee. Art, film, food, and coffee are affordable ways to enjoy life. These things make my life and heart full, and I am grateful to be able to delight in them.

Crochet and Massage

I recently had to buy some essentials at Daiso, so on top of all my supplies, I stocked up on some new toys. I got a foot roller, a pressure point stick, and a 4mm crochet hook.

I’ve been hearing positive feedback about Daiso’s craft supplies and notions, so I was really excited to try their crochet hook. And it did not disappoint! It was perfect as it rested comfortably on my ring finger as I alternate between pen and knife grips.

As always, this isn’t a sponsored post. I’m just happy with my purchases from Daiso. Yes, including the massage tools! I really believe that it doesn’t take much to cheer myself up. 

Also, this falafel platter from Halal Guys was delicious!

I hope that you will also find some cheap finds that will wow you. Happy shopping!
