Summer in October??

Summer is everyone's favourite season, even in the Philippines where it is sunny almost all year round. We especially reserve that 'summer vibe' for the months of March, April and May. And our main activities? Food trips and going to the beach with family and friends. 

Now we don't have to wait for those months to come, because there's a new cafe in town that will give you a taste of summer even in the month of October. By The Beach Cafe is located on the shore of Nibalew beach in San Fabian, Pangasinan and the nearest land mark is the Coast Guard Sub-station.

A New Tattoo

My parents are probably gonna kill me for getting a tattoo (haha) but I've been wanting to do this for the longest time. I finally found the courage to do so a day before Christmas.. because courage is the only thing left in me, keeping me alive, and that's enough. For me, this is not about bragging rights and keeping up with trends. They say pain makes people change, truth is, pain only reveals the real you.

So enough of the melodrama and let's get down to business! Let me answer frequently asked questions when getting tattooed for the first time.


Does it hurt? Unless I'm a robot then no. Haha! The answer is yes there is pain, but it's tolerable like all other pains in the world. The pain you get from getting inked is rewarding and therapeutic in a way. The pain won't traumatized you, in fact it will do otherwise.

Are you not afraid of people judging you? I used to, but respect is only gained. Plus, people only judge you from afar, you're most likely not close friends to start with.


What does one do while getting a tattoo? In my case, I was obviously documenting the whole process. Holding my phone up and keeping a straight face. If not, I might just stay still and contemplate on things and cry. Haha kidding! But I'm surprised at how calming it is to just sit there and let someone inflict pain on your body. Haha! Calling Mr. Christian Grey, fifty shades of f*cked up. Yeah, so if I were not recording, I will probably sleep.

How much trust do you have to give your artist? Trust is so fragile, you've got to give it all or nothing. I've known Kuya Bhong (my artist) for a couple of months before I finally decided to entrust him to do this permanent body art. He was introduced to me by my then boyfriend whom I used to love and trust so much, hugot. Hahaha! So yeah, it took us more than a few meet-ups. You have to know your artist as a person as well, you have to ask around for testimonials, check his previous works, make sure he is using safe/sterile working materials and together agree with a good design. 


Will it help you move on from a failed relationship? NOPE, even if you fill your body with tattoos. It's a way of healing for some, but the cure for heart ache cannot be bought.

Will you be getting another tattoo? Yes. This is my life and although I make decisions based on emotions -these are MY emotions and they are made of me. One-hundred percent authentic! I may regret it but I may also love it even more in the long run.


Who is Louise? Louise is the most important person in my life. My first tattoo goes to her. She is my number one.

Why did you place your tattoo there? Because it's the closest to my heart. I don't want (yet) to get a tattoo on my chest. But I already have a design ready for my back and abdomen.
