Bday gift for myself

instax pics I took in 2 days in Taipei
Travel to Taipei, 2 nights, was my own Bday gift. I enjoyed it a lot. I was surprised the place have changed a lot in over 12 years. There are more fashionable, tasteful shops and places there, and the streets and buildings are clean and neat; but still you can find traditional ambience by just stepping into narrow side streets. People are honest and kind and it is a safe place to walk around alone. Full of yummies, and cheap. So many "kawaii" things. Lots of fair-trade or organic products. A lot of fun. (And I really wish I had 4 stomachs in Taiwan;DD)

I may have said before, though I love each season but I love autumn the best in a year. I assume it is because I was born in autumn and  the gene has a lot to do it. Now it is November, I crave for the color red, yellow, brown. I deadly want to eat root vegetables. I miss the way I used to cling to my blanket, to cuddle in it with my cats.
I went to my favorite bistro in Cebu City and I couldn't resist the temptation of tart tatin there, and bought two pieces to my room.
I also bought persimmon, to taste autumn like my mother loved.

Going Organic

I have been living in Cebu, the Philippines, for about one and half year now, come to prefer/choose organic products almost always. You can get organic products made in the Philippines easily and at a reasonable price (some of them are extremely expensive for me, though).You can find so many things labeled with "100% natural origin", or "organic" here, a place full of tropical fruits and plants beneficial for your health like papaya, moringa, and coconut. I don't use many cosmetics (usually I apply only bee wax lotion that I made) but I am a soap lover, so I always go out of an organic store with some pieces of soap. In the photo are my favorite soaps and other products. 
I only wish I could get shampoo bar like this.
