It’s easy to overlook sleep especially when you’re always on the go. You might have skimped on sleep here and there and still have a good workout, but try to not make that a habit.

If you've been following me on Instagram, you've probably noticed, through some of my posts and stories, that I'm currently here in the Philippines. Yes, I'm back for vacation. Been here for almost two weeks now. Since I arrived, I've already had a lot of food trips, first of which was when I dined out with my younger sister and my nephew at BonChon in Robinsons Place Antipolo.

The holy month of Ramadan has started. This month requires our Muslim brothers to abstain from eating food, drinking, and doing a number of other behavioral, leisure, and pleasurable habits from sunrise to sunset. While the latter is a rather easy thing to do, abstinence from food and drink is where usually the struggle begins, especially during the first few days of Ramadan.

Fasting tests and enhances the endurance levels of your body and eating healthy food and having a work out regimen additionally helps strengthen and shape your body. I'm a non-Muslim but since I've been living in the UAE, I practise abstinence as a sign of respect to our Muslim brothers. I've also been in the fitness industry for years now, so I've come up with these 5 ways for staying fit and healthy which will hopefully help ease the challenges one may be faced with during Ramadan.

Mark and I were actually booked for a staycation on the same weekend as Cat's party, but I made sure not to miss the latter. Plus, it's been a while since we last had some catching up.

Aside from Filipino food, Filipino-themed gastro-pubs and night clubs have also been one of the most effective coping mechanisms of our fellow Filipino expats here in Dubai. You'll most likely find Filipino clubs, either in Deira or Bur Dubai, bustling with Filipinos (and other expats alike) during weekends.

Downtown Cafe (DTC) got me really excited and curious at the same time when an invitation to try them out was sent to my email. With its namesake, I initially thought that a Burj Khalifa view or a Downtown Dubai view might be part of what the restaurant has to offer.
