The Best of 2015

They always say, “Count your blessings.”
So here are the 15 things I’m grateful for in 2015!:)
JT Concert! #1 talaga?! Haha! It happened on New Year’s Day in Vegas. This wasn’t the first time I saw him perform live, but it was my first full JT concert (after many years of being a fan, and after sitting beside him in the hotel lounge for hours, per bawal magpa picture huhu)

I organized some artwork swaps this year. The fourth Craft Soirée was a Watercolor Swap with some of the most awesome watercolor artists in Manila.


The 5th Craft Soirée was a Stamp Swap,
which was held during the Katipunan Art Festival.


I made some wreath stamps and monograms for the art exchange!


It was held at Ninyo Fusion Cuisine


Thanks to and for giving out carving blocks for all the participants!


In 2015, I taught a total of 80 workshops!!
I always try to improve the workshop kits. This year, I added better workshop zines for all the classes.
I also give out my custom pencils at the workshops!


Of the 80 workshops, I taught 3 in the US. This one was for Nomad Hotel and Eleven Madison Park. I also taught another round of classes at Makeshift Society SF and Brooklyn.

The 2nd Craft Camp!

My macramé exhibit at Manila FAME
New food and interiors at PIPINO! This is my new fave combo: Tortang Talong (we used chickpeas instead of eggs) with Cauli-Rice, and Vegan Sinigang from scratch!
We added couches and plants
And I utilized the wall for my craft experiments and artworks 😛 One of my macramé pieces found its home here!
 Some of the wedding invitations that I designed this year. These were all for friends 😛



My newest workshop in 2015 was the White & Gold Calligraphy class!
I really enjoy sharing my love for writing with white ink 😛
When I find a beach as rocky as this, instead of feeling bummer out, I get super excited. Because it’s an opportunity for coral hunting! I found 3 coral alphabets this year!




Travels to Bohol, Baler, Hong Kong, US, Bangkok, and Bicol.
Went to Disneyland twice this year (Anaheim & HK). I also loved visiting the Flower Market in Hong Kong!



Awesome new food at Hillside Cafe! We partnered with Chef Nino Laus, and he created new dishes for the resto 🙂 Whenever PJ asks me where I want to eat, biases aside, I always seem to crave for Hillside food!:P
