Let’s hang out at TAYO!

If you work or live near Kapitolyo in Pasig City, there’s this trailer-turned-gastropub you can hang out for late lunch and beyond that serves hefty servings of Asian fusion and Filipino favorites. TAYO All-Day Brunch & Beer (TAYO is short for Tambayan sa Kapitolyo) also serves a mix of local and imported below zero beer and hard drinks for after office gimmicks. Aside from the witty names in the menu (they’re all instagrammable and of course delicious!), you’ll definitely love the familiar “tambayan” look and feel of the place. TAYO is located at 16-I United Street, Bgy. Kapitolyo, Pasig 1603.

Check out some of my snapshots (I was terribly late but glad I decided to drop by) when @IGersManila was invited there last February 3 for a food instameet.

Laundry moon

A post shared by Carl C. Lozano (@cclozano) on

I was doing laundry this late Sunday afternoon. When the washing machine sounded off that the drying’s done, I looked up the sky to see if there’s any sign of rain coming. Instead I saw the moon dotting the orange, cottony clouds, looking small in its crescent phase, as if growing bigger as night fell. I sat there looking at what I’d call the laundry moon, wondering how many like me on earth are staring that way. I then whispered a prayer to thank the heavens for continuing to bless us with its wonderful nature.

Instagram that #KindComments!

We’re doing a sit-down instameet (read: sit and sip coffee while talking about social phoneography) for Instagram’s Worldwide Instameet 16 #wwim16ph #wwim16 at Commune in Makati City. As the theme this time is #kindcomments, we thought of bringing back the early days of Instagram meetups, which are usually done in coffee shops or “instagrammable spots” where faceless usernames with the same passion for actually anything mobile app or online-related, meet for the first time and reveal their true identities (and later to become very good friends), and talk, exchange follows and likes, do on-the-spot editing tutorials, and snap lots of selfies and group shots.

Sign up now as seats are very limited, see you!

Instagram’s been redesigned

While Instagram’ers have been waiting for the algorithm change, that’s supposed to allow you to see photos and videos that make more sense to you as opposed to a chronological timeline, we were instead presented not only with a new logo but also a plain and flat, black and white app redesign.
