For those of you who've known me for a while... wine and liquor is my passion. My greatest obsession. My love. I've looked at it as a source of happiness, fulfillment and pride. I was wrong all along. It's healthy to have passion for things, but don't forget the people you share it with. Moments are taken for granted until it becomes a painful memory. A memory you try to hold on to and replay over and over again in your head and ask the question, was I there for the wine? Or was I there for the people? I've focused more on other things besides the ones that truly matter. So learn from me, life shouldn't be about material things. It should be the moments that you cherish with your friends and family. Hold them and tell them you love and appreciate them before it's too late.
Pre-shift Dom Perignon tasting. Not bad for a Sunday.
8 years ago today, I left Manila for San Francisco. Life has never been more beautiful.
My mom and I walk into a Levi's. I go left to the men's, she goes right. She yells across the store.... "Miko! Make sure you get the button fly so it's not loud in the movie theater for you girls!" I love you and Happy Mother's Day to the best mom this boy could ever have! #mymomiscool

Worst part of moving?
Glenkinchie Distillers Edition. On the nose, brandied cherries, dried strawberries and a hint of dark chocolate. On the palate, baking spices, chocolate covered espresso beans, dried berries and hint of smoke towards an oily finish. Truly a beautiful nightcap. #glenkinchie#scotch#singlemalt#whisky
A great day in Napa. Thank you Saintsbury for hosting us!
