ang isla.




the sight, sound, smell, taste, and feel of one of the most beautiful islands in the world.. according to my attempts at 1.3 megapixel mobile phone photography. hehe.





its always great for everyone to take time out to get away! my pre-valentine's date was a good japanese dinner with one of my loves, father tito caluag, who recently just moved home from the city to the outskirts of manila. and according to him, the city is "toxic". i agree with that. (not unless its just my south girl sensibility that feels that way, hehe.)

ooh, a song comes to mind now.. when my sister and i were on our oh-so-fabulous vacation with my brother and his girlfriend tracy a few weeks ago in california, we took one night out to a jazz bar called yoshi's. (lucky for me, it was a japanese restaurant again!) the artist's name was ledisi, and she was great. her last song was dedicated to all the workaholics in the crowd and it went a little something like this..

take time
to get away
free your mind
and fly away

ayus. :)

hi bianca!

is this Yoshi's the one located in Oakland, CA at the Jack London Square? if so, then you've been to one of the better places in the Sf area! one thing: you go there NOT so much for the food, but for the music. my DH and I love to get there around 8pm, have long dinner, and then get in the jazz show. we've seen pretty big names there, and the venue is small and intimate so it is always a great experience. :p

glad you had fun!

Hello Ate Biance. Yeah, I'm planning to make a blog for the fans, supported by YOU. Yes! I'll tell you later about it. Just contact me @ http://lifelessmob.blogspot.com. I just want to make it clear, it's a fansite for all superbiancies. I hope that you would agree.

hi bianca! crush kita! hehe..

Anyways, I found out about your blog just this afternoon. Good thing I stumbled upon this just when you came back blogging. Otherwise, I'd have thought I might see another dormant blog. Haha! You do great storytelling though.. :)

Hope you could drop by my somewhat dormant (sleepy might be better.. hehe..) blog.. and leave a comment, or tag, or whatever =)

hi nice to know your back to blogging.i have always wondered when you will return to blogging because you're "playground" says that you're on blog leave..it turned out to be a very long blog leave...

I guess we all have to turn a new page in our lives, leave the playground, and become a supergirl. :)

thanks for continuing your blogs!

if i have the power to influence minds, just like you in the media business, i would definitely be doing something worthwhile than to do tsismis and stuff. good job bianca for not stooping down and for making your stint in the showbusiness worthwhile and productive. keep up the good work.
