Hello! Welcome to MNL Lifestyle Chronicle!

This is the page where I share with you my latest discoveries–from food to shopping to the latest places to chill and relax, not only in good, old Sunny Manila — but also to other interesting places where I usually end up. This site also features the hottest and latest brands as well as brand and product preferences that makes  From time to time, I also post my views and rants and raves on this site.

The MNL Lifestyle Chronicle is a lifestyle and travel blog covering all things that YOU find interesting: the latest food, hang-out, happening, style, news, events and yeah, even the best kind of medicine to put you out of your bitchy mood at 3AM. I will also share travel discoveries and the hacks I usually use as a keen budget traveler. As a lifestyle writer, nothing makes me happy than having people read what I write, and maybe gleam something new from the pages of this site.

This blog is for everyone. I do not discriminate readers: whatever your interest maybe, I hope you’ll learn something from my site.


About KAMIKAZEEGIRL. You can consider me as the crazy, offbeat, quirky character from your favorite television show — quite a mix of The Bitch in “Don’t trust the B—- on Apartment 23,” a little bit of Jess as I am awkward and prone to getting caught in embarrassing situations, a healthy dash of the deviant, anti-social Ichigo Shirayuri (Kamikaze Girls) and lastly, a bit of Phoebe Buffay for her quirky, outrageous views on life and a hapless devotion to my cats, particularly Sayuri.

I currently work as the head of public relations for a not-to-be named company, while maintaining my passion as a writer on the side. Aside from this blog, you can also find me at http://www.dplacesyouwillgo.wordpress.com also known as The Kamikazee WanderGirl. 

I’d love to work with you. For brand collaborations, event invitations and press releases, contact me at kamikazeegirl@yahoo.com.

      yes, Gokusen I is a great movie — If I may, I suggest you continue watching other japanese movies, there’s tons of really great ones..
      If you don’t mind I recommend “Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac”, “Okurubito”, and my favorite “Kamikaze Girls” 🙂
