Desiree is a 19-year old food enthusiast with a penchant for travelling with style.
When she's not busy hopping from one restaurant to another or exploring the world, she likes to indulge herself in her other love: K-pop.
She dreams of becoming a polyglot and a game changer.
Dine with her as she unravels what the world has to offer (among other things and many in betweens).
Welcome to Dining with Des.
School has been, as expected, stressful, which is why I was looking forward to Reena’s birthday party on Friday. I was anticipating it so much that I kept asking if it was Friday already.
So when the day came, I CASTED ASIDE ALL MY SCHOOLWORKS and made way for the food and fun to come!
The day before, Tricia and I bought a cake and some balloons to surprise Reena the next day.
Reena and I share the same, not dorm, but pad (charaught), so we’re basically unofficial roomies. She comes by everyday and I cook breakfast or dinner for her with my super adorbs mini rice cooker from Cuisintec
*slides my way into your screens* Well hello there~
I knowwwww it’s been so long since I posted. As you all know, school has started and so has the S T R E S S. The amount of readings just won’t decrease and thesis writing has officially began, although we’re still in the process of choosing a topic. So yes, you can deduce that school has kept me occupied for the past few weeks.
When it comes to our family, the celebrations never really end.
There’s a lot to celebrate about life and that includes life itself na parang second home na yata namin) two days in a row with us and her friends a week after her actual birthday, oh diba go lang ng go! Syempre aariba rin si mother dear! #AbetTurns25 charing!
The thing with having a long summer break is that there is plenty of time to do anything.
Now that the next school year is just around the corner, I called up my bff Reena to aura and ariba our way while we have yet to be consumed by papers, homework and exams. Since it has also dawned to her that we only have a couple of weeks left to make the most of our summer holiday, she agreed (she had no choice anyway lol) I suggested we have our date at Greenbelt because where’s a better place to aura and ariba than Greenbelt? I also thought we could finally give the latest tonkatsu place in town, Maisen, a visit~
Chef Bruce Ricketts’ Mecha Uma is one of the hottest tables in town, and he, together with The Moment Group, are back again with a bold Japanese restaurant concept called OOMA, a play on the Japanese word umai, which means good.
