Pong Eats: The Black Apartment 😋

Hello! 😘

How's everyone? So, today, I decided to finally publish another blog.The Black Apartment post has been sitting in my drafts for a while, but better late than never, right? Here we go!




I joined my sister and her friends to go and try TBA. I knew someone from there (Hi, Marc) but he manages the Imus Branch but still, I sent him a message. And there, he called the Pag-asa Branch to have our seats reserved. We were like 12, more or less at that time. 


That's Tibzi right there - TBA, Pagasa Branch

How was our stay at TBA? Ang saya! Ang tagal namin dun! Haha! We started around 6PM and closed na kaya umalis na kami. Haha! I guess, that explains. One of the kids, si Basty, had two rounds of Smores Milkshake. Almost all of us tried different burgers, two of Ate's friends, I guess ate a rice meal. We tried their chicken wings, too. Masarap? Nag take-out pa ko! Haha!

Congrats, TBA. I read your Facebook Profile and am happy that the business which started with group of friends just hanging out has two branches already. Love your burgers, the concept and I can say that this place is one of the ultimate hang-out for Cavite folks. 

Have some snaps to share. See below and try 'em!

Casa Primera Hot Spring Resorts - Private Pool in Pansol, Laguna

Mabuhay! What is up? How's everyone? It's been ages! Haha. So, last October 20-21, I was in a Private Pool in Pansol, Laguna with some amazing people. I was at the same resort, different villa though, two years ago. Hello, Casa Primera Hot Spring Resorts - it's been a while!! ☺


Casa Primera Hot Spring Private Resort Villa 4 - Pansol, Laguna
So, like I said, circa 2016, I was at Casa Primera (Villa 2) with my colleagues. I was the one who inquired and booked Villa 2 for us. In short, organizer. Haha. During that time, I find them different among others. Why? Booking pa lang, alam mong organized na. Same thing when we arrived. They have this check list of stuff they provide their guests which are needed to be returned upon check-out (of course, ☺). And the crew were very attentive and very generous of their service and time. May pa-towel pa sila back then. Nice, right? Parang, ask them, they have it. If not, they will do something to get it for you. ☺


Casa Primera Villa 2 (photo taken 2016)

This time, we spent one night in Villa 4. See, Casa Primera is not your usual Private Resort in Laguna. Why? 

1. It is spacious. When they say that the place is good for 45 pax, 45 pax can really sleep comfortably with beds and all that. Yung iba kasi, let's admit it, beds are not enough. 
2. Aside from the warm water in their pools (water is so clean!!), they have a billiard table, darts, videoke (take note, old to new songs, they have it, umabot tayo kay Shanti Dope. Ganong level cos it's always updated), you can play table tennis, too. 
3. The place is kid friendly, too. Kids have their own spot. How sweet, yes? 
4. The materials used in their beds are not substandard. Hindi tinipid. Their bunk beds do not move at all when the person on top is moving or going down. Importante saken yun. Ayoko maistorbo pag tulog. Haha! 
5. May bidet hose! O di ba Pinoys are bidet-lovers e. Haha. Plus the rainmaker overhead shower pa.
6. They let you bring your stuff so you can cook, no corkage yan. They will let you do what ever you like (wag ka lang manira, bes, bayad ka sige. lol), but of course, in the event you need any assistance, staff are very helpful. 
7. And the price? Reasonable, as I always say. Their tag line "Dito ka na sa sigurado" wouldn't be compromised. It's like your home away from home. Thumbs up. Lakas maka-hotel e.
8. And they have their own drainage system. This is a plus. Nagets ko na 'to nung tumanda ako. Haha. Dati wapakels ako, maka-swim lang. So, sila na talaga e!

I have some snaps to share! Look how beautiful Casa Primera is. The architecture, the design, chos wala ako alam sa ganyan but maganda talaga sya. I hope my pictures will give justice to its design. Haha. You will truly have a good time. Soon to open though, is Casa Tropica. We were privileged enough to see how it's being built and I tell you, it's very promising. Excited to see those as well and share with you! Soon enough. ☺

Here ya go! ☺

Pong Tries Vlogging - Miron Bridge & Fox Cities Trestle - Friendship Trail


Vlogging? This is taken in Menasha, WI. Miron Bridge & Fox Cities Trestle - Friendship Trail. 
I do not have video editing skills. Haha! Just found this on my phone. Originally this is from my GP. So, this is me with Nicole braving the cold. It's -2.2C then. It was still a great experience seeing the river and it's all ice. I remember seeing two guys attempting to do some ice fishing but did not push through. Gosh, I miss WI! Yeah I can say it! Haha. Arte.

So, for the mean time, ito muna. Next time na yung montage and yung brightness man lang sana. Haha!

Pong Thoughts: Exes Baggage Movie Review 🙅

Hello! Mabuhay! Finally, a new post! Exes Baggage Movie Review. So, ano namang kayang hanash ko dito?! 😉


photo credits: black_sheepph IG Exes Baggage

This post, obviously, is about the movie Exes Baggage. Actors are Carlo Aquino and Angelica Panganiban. Mga batang 90s, relate na relate sa #Cargel. Di ba? Aminin! This is going to be in TagLish (Tagalog and English). This is a chill review. Let's start?!

First, I thought maiiyak talaga ko sa movie. I have my tissue ready na nga. Ito naman si Kuya sa harapan namin, sabi nya "Miss, wag mo sipain ung likod ng upuan!" Badtrip sya e. Sabi ko, "Ay hindi po ako yun, excuse me." So, sabi ko sa sarili ko isang saway pa nito, papatulan ko 'to, start na yung movie panira. Haha. So, mabalik tayo, so hindi ako naiyak, matured. Hindi lang naiyak, sign na ng maturity? Haha. No, I guess, steady na ang heart ko ngayon kaya ganon. Good sign. Pwede na ulit. Haha!  

So, just so you know, while typing, am listening to Maybe The Night - OST ng movie. Sobrang chill ng song. Ang sarap pakinggan habang nasa beach ka with your special someone tapos may beer. Sarap din talaga magmahal, no? Haaay. Haha. 

Ito na nga, what are my thoughts? (ang dami ko na sinabi, di ba? wala pa pala, haha)

  1. Never enter a relationship just because. Loneliness is not a reason, never a reason, kahit kasi sabihin mong hindi mo sinasadya na gawing rebound yung new person sa life mo, babagsak at babagsak dun e. Dapat napatawad mo, una, yung sarili mo, and pangalawa, ung naging karelasyon mo para buong buo ka. Ready ka na. Steady, chill. Para mas masaya. 
  2. When you love someone, you are also giving that person the opportunity to hurt you. Wala e, ganun talaga. Kasama un. Pero kahit gano kasakit, dapat hindi tayo magsawang magmahal. Ang sarap kaya. Lahat naman kasi may katapusan, pati pain. 
  3. Nagmahal ng sobra, kaya masakit din talaga. Pero, sugal lang. Ganyan naman talaga ang buhay, we'll never know unless we give it a try, right? Sa Lotto nga super liit ng probability na manalo, pero walang sawa sa pagtaya. Try din natin sumugal sa pag-ibig, pwede din naman. 
  4. Love is the act of an endless forgiveness. Love may come in different levels pero grabe lang. 
  5. Love always gives us hope. Hindi ito ung mga paasa, okay? Iba yun. Haha. 
  6. When you love someone, give it your all. Bakit pa magmamahal kung kulang din naman, wag na. What's stopping you? Kaya nga dapat buo. Mahirap masaktan, kaya wag tayo manakit, okay? Refer to #1. Haha. 
  7. Last, siguro no matter how long it takes, nagkaron kayo ng ibang karelasyon, if kayo talaga, kayo e. Fate will always find its magic. Lahat kasi may reason, lahat ng nakikilala natin may role para ma-mold tayo to the person na we need to be for our future selves and for our future better halves, maybe. (parang nagandahan ako sa sinabi ko na 'to - mature, haha)
  8. So, I said last, but I lied. Chance. Bigay natin 'to sa mga taong maayos naman na gustong pumasok sa life natin. Wala namang mawawala. Lahat naman nagbabago. 😊

Pinipilit ko talaga ung maturity e no? Bottom line, love love lang. It's the greatest feeling ever! There will always be this one person na will help you recover. Will make you feel whole again, will fix the broken pieces, ganon. 

Favorite line ko? "Sayo na ko e" - Nix to Pia (weakness ko talaga 'to kahit sa totoong buhay, haha)
"Paulit-ulit kong isusugal yung puso ko maramdaman ko lang ulit kung anong meron tayo dati" - Nix to Pia

Tapos ang ganda pa ng boses ni Carlo Aquino. Patay na talaga. Haha! 

Thanks for reading mga besh! 💕

Watch na ng Exes Baggage! Lemme know!

Pong Thoughts: Thought Catalog Article 💭


Hi Everyone! 😊

It's August! I just noticed that since 2014, July-August has been quite of a challenge for me. Was wondering why, actually. Or prolly it's just a plain coincidence. I don't know.

This year, it happened again. I came across this Thought Catalog article that really hit me. I have always believed that 2018 is an amazing year for me, don't get me wrong, it still is. It has brought me surprises (good + not so good) and am loving every second of it. Am always grateful.
