bexe I was mightily impressed by the young joyful chefs of the kitchen earlier today! Pretty sure they now know more cooking and plating techniques than I do. 1w

bexe Helping out at a kids activities camp this weekend and it's such a joy to watch the children try their hands at painting, drawing, handicrafts, creative arts, cooking and gardening. This little Mister Green Fingers was enthusiastically going at the weeds earlier! #vscocam 1w

bexe Thought all the surprising was over but these three gave me the final push into my 24th year, with more cake in my hands and a food coma on my belt. Thank you @doubleyoucube @anabubuchacha @zaidahnoshame! I can't help but repeat: it's so good to be home 1w

bexe If I had to be surprised in my ratty home clothes this year, I'm glad that at least it was with the cutest cupcakes, love and laughter! Thank you, @mishch3lle @angelshameless @christinegalera @bazilahalimin and @sheiela for getting me good once again and for making the start of this 24th all the more magical ️ (but I will be prepared next year just you see) 2w

bexe Suddenly craving for all things sweet and my mind is brought back to last weekend, when I got this biko slice for P5/BND0.15 at a roadside kiosk! This is the same one that I wolfed down in a previous photo I posted a few days back. And I really have to emphasise... It was only P5! BND0.15! I'm still amazed I only had one slice but slight regret now. #itsmostcheapinthephilippines #whackall #foodandme 1mon

bexe Mother, @irisnicholas, told me that when I was a toddler, she used to call me Miss Langu, short for longganisa (from the Spanish word longaniza), because I not only loved the sweet, beautiful Filipino sausages but also because I looked like a bundle of longganisas what with my chubby (but cute, might I add) limbs. Today, I am still chubby and I am still in love with longganisa! For example, the other day I had 5 sausages for breakfast though usually one only has two or three per serving. And... I regret nothing. #chubbyandinlove #whackall #foodandme 1mon

bexe In this picture, there are multiple things to note: a) the Catholic church behind me is ancient, stone walls and all! b) Lucban is up in the mountains and so it's real windy, hence my skirt! c) I am having one of my favourite Filipino desserts, Biko, on banana leaf! Biko's this brown sticky rice dessert that's similar to the brown sticky rice dessert we get back in Brunei. I guess that's the part of the reason I really like it, I must admit! and d) I have gained soo much weight since I first got here in December that even Mother dearest, @irisnicholas, who has been telling me the past few months that I don't look what (I tell her) I weigh, told me yesterday that if I don't lose weight by April, I can't fit into my bridesmaid dress!........ but oh well, a girl's gotta eat am I right. #whackall #foodandme #Philippines 1mon

bexe And then I had kikiam, fish balls and chicken balls for afternoon snack/meryenda. Pictured is only one kikiam (I dunno what the English equivalent of it is... there is none, methinks) but I had five kikiams, two chicken balls and four fish balls. And you won't believe how much all that cost... P12! That's more or less BND0.30! How is that even possible, right?! But it is and it's aaaaall mine. #itsmorecheapfoodinthephilippines #whackall #foodandme #streetfood #streetphotography #Philippines 1mon

bexe Alright, the next few photos are going to be of me and food or just food on its glorious, undisturbed own. So for those who are currently missing the Philippines and its food, you have been warned! Here's me slurping down pancit hab-hab. It's "mee", as we know it in Chinese or Malay terms, on banana leaf and you're given no fork or spoon. You just gotta get right in with your fingers and mouth and wallop it without reservations! Definitely my favourite food from Lucban! #whackall #foodandme #Philippines 1mon

bexe the past four days have been a mad scramble to get things done. in and out and all around Metro Manila. yet despite the hustle and bustle, God kept reminding me that He is in control of all, that He makes everything work together for the good of those who love Him and that His timing is the most perfect. so while I walked from block to block to block to block yesterday, getting things done with @luimilanes, God bade me stop, breathe in, and look up. allow for reflection again, He said. and then I was reminded:
"Psalm 121:1
I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from The Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth."
so I breathe out and breathe easy. He never failed nor forsook me all these months over here and He won't start now. #onetrueGod

bexe Where am I? Looks like New York, feels like class and freedom, but it was actually 111 Paseo de Roxas, where beautiful things happened for me today. Thank You, good Father! #ohgoodFather! #driftwoodjourneys #Philippines 1mon

bexe Empty jeep to Cubao, save for me and this ate at 8am! How? I also don't know. Narnia. (Actually kidding. Jeep was full like as if its the apocalypse in Marikina and they were rushing to get out... Took this photo only at the end of the route when I was sure that I wouldn't get slashed and mugged for my iPhone.) #iamwisecommuter? :} #jeepneylogs #jeepventures #travel #driftwoodjourneys #Philippines 1mon

bexe Alright, I'm done being a hermit. Ashamed to say that I allowed the enemy to push me to the corner and keep me there for a good two weeks. But I'm done hiding. Absolutely done believing all the lies of condemnation and defeat. No more, I say, no more. From glory to glory He brings us and I'm ready to go! (oh, here's me bring a total tourist at the nearby isawan last week. Picture by my favourite roadside BBQ partner, @causeofinsecurity!) 1mon

  •   sherisincerely I don't know what you're going through but I've recently walked through my own long dark season. It does start to get easier and life starts to look up again. I didn't believe it ever could- but God is faithful. For me, nothing changed - but He is healing my heart. I pray it is the same for you. 1mon

bexe Had my first Valentines date as a single with a fellow single on the weekend! I met him 30 mins later than scheduled because I am still the most n00b commuter here in the Philippines, and sure, @luimilanes did grumble a bit, but after a while, he was all smiles! Plus, how to not smile when the agenda for the day was "lets eat and get fat together" am I right? Best singleton Vday date yet ! #friendshipstrong #truelove #singlesunite 2mon
