Blog Breakaway 10/04/2012 – Diliman at Dawn

You don’t have to be in U.P. Diliman to get this, but that’s where I was earlier this morning, and being back in my university for a shoot made it taste even better.

Half the university knew (I’m kidding, not that many) I was not as addicted to taho as I was addicted to the isaw stands (grilled/barbecued offal) that are now alongside the vacant lot which is a hop, skip, and a jump from the University Arcade, but those super savory isaw stands only open in the afternoon.  However taho for me (steamed bean curd with sweet syrup and pearl)  is still such a comforting sweet treat in the morning, especially a morning like this.  Today my University of the Philippines smelt of trees with sun rays peeking, there were people  running, fallen leaves gripped the moist ground, and a soft, nippy October breeze was blowing…what respite from the smoky chaos that is the city.

  • I went to Ateneo, so we ended up visiting UP a lot – mostly to eat! I’ve always loved how the campus is so pretty and open to everyone.

  • Oh, I miss UP Diliman. Been there only once and for an overnight stay at the University Hotel. I felt like I belong there, haha!

    hi this is a bit off topic. i saw your review of the clinique black honey and ive been trying to put off my lemming for quite some time. now that i am ready for the purchase, i was browsing online pre order store on facebook, and mygosh, what a huge markup ha. they are selling it for 1800+ wala pa shipping. but sephora website says it’s only $15. i havent had the time to go to rustans primarily because i live up north. waaayyy up north! would you mind telling me if rustans here carry the black honey lipstick? i do have friends in manila, and a friend told me, makati doesnt have it at the moment. maybe out of stock lang or maybe , not ever?!

    also, you should give melvita argan oil a try, absolutely love this on my skin…an all around oil..yep, for the face, hair, body, heck i even use it for my nails. =)
