Out of all the social experiments our species has created, the bar is undoubtedly one of the most entertaining. Being “successful” at the bar requires a rare combination of proper timing, charisma, and spirited conversation. If you’re looking for love, the ability to effectively utilize bar lingo is crucial. Courtesy of ABC’s new show Mixology, here are some terms that’ll be sure to enhance your wild Friday nights.

1. Anchor Baby


A drink one places strategically next to a potential hook-up to provide a reason to return to the area and resume flirtation.

Don’t worry, I’m not giving up on neon heels – I left an anchor baby.

2. Bargument


An argument that you ordinarily wouldn’t give a shit about, but because you are drunk and in a bar, at that moment it’s the most important thing in the world.

You are INSANE if you…

15 Things Younger Siblings Don’t Know Their Older Siblings Did For Them

Thought Catalog


1. Bearing the role of being the guinea pig, and having all the strict rules enforced on them instead.

As the firstborn, you will paradoxically always be your parents’ baby. Everything they do with you, they will do with kid gloves. (Chances are good you also find the Luvs commercials as funny – in that bleak, depressing, bitterly ‘why me?!’ kind of way — as your parents.) No dating, no cell phone, no alcohol, God forbid no weed, and did I mention no dating? At least until you’re 18, if not married.

2. And having to watch every single rule that kept an older sibling under lock and key be unceremoniously abandoned with any subsequent offspring.

By the time your younger sibling rolls around, your parents will have learned one crucial thing: kids are going to just be kids, and it’s honestly usually not worth the headache to try to…

Top 8 reasons you should date/marry a female physician or surgeon

A snug fit on my current life as a pre-medicine student and a future surgeon.

Hot Heels, Cool Kicks, & a Scalpel


A couple of years ago, I asked a friend of mine how she met her husband.  It was at a bar, and when she asked his occupation he replied, “I work for the city.”  She took that to mean he was a construction worker.  They began dating and quickly fell in love.  Much to her surprise about a month into their relationship, she learned he actually played for the NFL team in their city.

Two nights ago, I had the pleasure of having dinner with two very pretty surgical residents.  As they are both single, the conversation quickly turned towards the “single life” here in our city.  One began to tell me she uses dental hygienist as her go-to occupation when meeting men, while the other uses flight attendant.  I have to admit, the flight attendant bit is pretty genius – it actually explains our crazy schedules pretty well!

Foodie Review: The Sweet Spot

Another food and restaurant review for the Maginhawa foodies out there! I love sweets, desserts, and oddly designed places so this place is a hit for me. This is about The Sweet Spot. 

We were on a hunt for a sweet fix to an otherwise boring Friday night when my friends and I decided to go to this relatively new dessert place in a food building in Sikatuna.

The place is relatively accessible by car if you are coming from both UP Diliman or Kalayaan Avenue. Taking a tricycle, however, is a bit costly considering the walkable distance to jeepney routes. Anyway, upon entry of the place, there is this floor-to-ceiling mural of coffee, books, and what-nots using chalk.

Upon further inspection, the area near the cashier has a bit of a library where customers can get some awesome books, magazines, and manga collections.

The food is a bit pricey. At first, we thought the place only had desserts and sweets but there are rice meals and sandwiches offered which cost around Php 200. I ordered a Blueberry Cheesecake and my friend ordered the Strawberry one so that we can share. Turns out, the cheesecakes are sweet and delicious enough for us to stay and have a bit of tarot reading.

The service is so-so. The total feel of the place is likened to a new study place for students. Outlets are accessible. Also, another thing that I really like about the place is their sofa sets. Super comfortable.

This is another review rip-off from my looloo account which is also viewable in my zomato account. Cheers to the sweet tooth!
