I’m compulsively trying to justify everything I do tonight, considering that the night won’t last that long and before I know it I’ll be waking up to another (tiring) day, thus activities for tonight must fall into the productive/enjoyable category. This is one such activity. I present to you my reading list! Stopping by Fully Booked this weekend has done me some good; it has...
Alessi Likes Yummy Eats 2012
So on a scorching hot Saturday, Hannah and I went to the Rockwell Tent to drown in food samplers for the Yummy Eats Food Fair 2012. I was greeted by this snobbish registration person that looked at me as if I wasn’t legit enough to be a food blogger/media person T_T she started to ease up on me a bit and gave me a fake smile when I showed her my email confirming my invite. *yay* Let me...
Alessi Likes Coral Lips
Time for extremely shallow blog post portion! LOL Coral lips have started to grow on me. In the past I wished to have nothing to do with Etude’s Miss Tangerine collection which was released A YEAR AGO. I was all like yuck looks so tacky! Little did I know I’d be jumping on the orange bandwagon like the rest of the world. I never thought I’d see the day… Looks like...
Alessi Likes Japanese Obento Boxes
I love Japan for many reasons. This is one of them. Photos by instagram users: checo_o and it_abdkdbd Obento boxes! This morning I went on an obento liking spree on Instagram. Photos by instagram users: keiyamazaki and nobrin I therefore conclude that the typical Japanese breakfast consists of soft-boiled egg, cherry tomatoes, veggies, and bread. Photos from instagram users: zizimoko...
Alessi Likes Floor-Grazing Skirts
Okayyyy… Distracting myself from the stresses of real-life with some chic ways to wear maxi skirts/rags all photos from tumblr :) Maxi skirts may have been around for a while now, but most of the time I see them styled in the most commonplace and baduy ways. It’s the same old thing over and over, with excess-accessorizing to top it all off. These however are some very...
Alessi Likes The Stock Market
Yaaaay so my Stock Market feature was FINALLY published! A week in the making WTF haha. You can read my quite lengthy and more detailed feature for When in Manila here if you’re interested. Photos by the ever-awesome Hannah. We had their Tempting Twosomes selection, which was a pair of savory sandwiches with sides of either their harvest salad or soups. Nom nom nom the sandwiches were...

It’s a cool way to meet fellow bloggers and read their blogs ;)
Alessi Likes Pinterest
Gosh I’ve hardly any time to blog now because I’m so damn busy and tired all the time! Most blog events also clash with my schedule, giving me a bunch of FML moments. If only everything in my life came in perfect timing. There’s one thing that I’ve consistently tried to devote some of my time to. In between duty, sleeping, and skyping with the boyfriend, I’ve been...
Alessi Likes to be IlLUMIAnated
I hope you get the pun in my post title *lol* So! Last night was the launch of the Nokia Lumia series, and I dropped by to blog about it for WhenInManila.com, you can read my feature here if you’re interested. The night got off to a very fugly start as I slept in after getting home from duty and woke up like 30 minutes before I was supposed to arrive at the event FML. Then I took half an...
Alessi Likes Lunch with Friends
This is probably the fastest update I’ll have on my blog! Earlier today I brought my friends along for a feature for wheninmanila.com, perfect opportunity to bond over our most favorite activity: eating. I’ll post better photos of the awesome food once the feature is up, right now I’ll just document the entire experience of spending a day with my girlfans. Thank you...
Alessi Likes Doing What She Likes
It is two in the morning and I am regretting what a waste of my day it’s been. I’m living within time-bound and constrictive working hours, unable to focus on things I truly wish to pursue and spend my valuable time on. I feel like I’m wasting my life as the days draw on and less of my life is left behind, within the confines of highly sanitized rooms and lots of bacteria,...
Alessi Likes Labor Day
These are my friends and I, rolling in the deep of a shit ton of $$$$, as how we’d like to imagine ourselves in the future *lol* And this is us in sepia. The holiday was the perfect time to have some well-needed catching up with my friends. I missed them so much and during the rare occasions that we get to see each other, the gossip and talking is superfluous. We manage to unearth...
Alessi Likes to Know What the Damn Secret Is
This post is about positive thinking. Most of the bloggers I’ve been following (Cheesie, Aud, and Xiaxue *ack haha!*) have been talking about The Secret. It’s like this sort of mindset that you maintain so that the things you desire (be it improvements in finances, health, and relationships) come to you, instead of you chasing after them. I’ve checked out their website and...
Alessi Likes The Avengers
Okay! I have a very good explanation as to why my Avengers post is late… I was waiting sooo long for baicapture to post our photobooth photos! Meh. Shall post those later so my face won’t scare you off. Here’s the blog post I made about it. Soooo a few weeks back, Nuffnang held a mini contest for bloggers, and the prize was an exclusive screening of The Avengers! Since the event...

Alessi Likes April
April was such a fun month. It had the right mix of suspense and fun and friends and free stuff all rolled into one. Life decided to give me a bunch of hold-ups and delays to fuel my impatience, but these bore good and promising things in the end. That and thriving sparks, and I’m about to change my perspective on my shitty luckless life. I’m still very cautious about my future, and...
Alessi Likes Making Her Face Smaller
So right now I am putting aside Wednesday’s journal review which I’m working on *lol* to write about something quite odd and bizarre, but which I am sincerely fascinated by. It’s about making your face smaller. WTF. This post is going to be very vain. One of my secret teeny tiny insecurities is my very round face. It might’ve looked nice and adorable while I was 4 years...
Alessi likes The Paradox of our Time
The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less; we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less...
