La Yelp Boheme

Dearest computer,

we gather here to write our reviews’

Here Yelp lies,

we all know her worth

Finds  great stuff from all over Earth.

Good food,  and everyone’s two cents worth.

In any town, even Bethlehem,

we raise our glass,

you bet your ass to,

La Yeeelp, Boheme.

La Yelp Boheme!

La Yelp Boheme!

La Yelp Boheme!


To days  of pure starvation,wanting cookies,  just put  something in our stomach,

and we need to express, to communicate,

we really want to eat,

a good treat! not something bad.

Using the app, or computer,

we’re finding great food sooner.

we’re writing about it, no doubt about it,

hey-did you just check-in and get a badge?

To writing about some fruit you sampled  for free,

or dumplings, that make you, shoutout with glee

Because you’re funny, you’re useful, and you’re cool,

and you love ROTD!

To writing it all  for fun,

and getting Elited!


La Yelp Boheme!


(update with Yislin additions )

to hand crafted beers made in local breweries! To popchips to sweetness, to rice and beans and cheese.

from leather, and tapas and curry vindaloo-to huevos rancheros and Maria Argüello!

There is a  question that bothers the  cuckoo bananas out of me :

“What kind of writer are you?”


“Like, you know..what do you write?”

just for reading, everyone gets cupcakes. don't lick the screen.



At this point , the person who has asked me this loaded query has  regretfully pulled out his/her phone to pretend to text anyone- maybe even the MovieFone guy-and avoids eye contact with me till I say something like, “Oh but you know,  I write like…”Harry Potter” meets “Sex and the City” kinda stuff, except Harry is Carrie and his broom is made by Christian Dior and..and..wait, where are you going?”

Silly answer for a silly question to an unemployed writer.

How can  I answer such a question  when it can have so many answers?”Fiction, with a little bit of my real life experiences mixed in with imagination, passion–that’s the kind of writer I am.”

So, with this blog- I decided it would be interesting to take it in a couple of different directions.  You won’t log on here to find daily musings  about how my love life is in the pits, or how my mom is annoyed that I once again used her clean socks instead of mine, cause I didn’t want to sift through the laundry basket to find  a matching pair of my own.

Okay, maybe sometimes on the latter. Storytime is fun.

This blog is for free-thinking and observation. Be it about my adventures in conquering my first full marathon,job-hunting in a flat economy-food, books, music, and overall social life ( on and offline).

Of course, there will be the sway into  other topics as I see fit and entertaining- Miami life, politics, social commentary.

At most, it provides a venue for me to write, and get back into the practice of doing it more often.

Stay tuned.
