Mini Tagaytay, my happy place!


Here comes the rainy season. My favorite one. These are the times I find myself counting raindrops, sipping more coffee than usual, cooking “lucky me” to keep me warm and reading books non-stop to kill time and travel to another dimension.

So last night, I listed all my must read physical books. I almost died when my I finished my list, 42 books! *die, die, die and die once more* How did this happen? How can I have so many books?

I told myself I better get back to reading or else my sister Krissy will kill me once I step inside a bookstore again and end up buying all the reads that interest me. As much as I love my room, deep inside I know I need to find another place, another area where my brain won’t tell me “the weather is very inviting, go ahead and sleep”.

Now here I am, lying flat on my stomach blogging and reading at the same time. Mom’s gonna scream at me once she notice that her cute sala is missing one of her pink foamy seats. Yes, I brought them to our terrace.

Happy reading! 🙂

10 Day Blog Challenge: Part 10

blog challengeOne confession

Okay, here we go. I do not know how to date. Like date-date. *Blush*Shy*Blush*Shy* Literally date, like go on a date with someone I like. Because once you ask me out, and I say yes, that simply means I like you and most probably, we will end up together.

This is funny and at the same time frustrating, lol!

Please take time to read my 10 Day Blog Challenge, hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Again big thanks to Say Cheese for this bright idea. Try it, have fun and know thyself… How come I don’t know how to date? Haha!

10 Day Blog Challenge : Part 3

blog challenge

Eight Ways to win my heart

1. Ask my parents if you can visit me at home. Super effort ang pagpunta sa house namin, malayo kasi, haha!

2. Open the door for me and for other people.

3. Look me straight in the eye when talking. Do not be afraid, my eyes are just normally big, but I do not have hypnotizing powers.

4. Be yourself and do not try to copy others. Not flattering at all. If you are comfortable in what you do, it will show.

5. Learn how to cook “Lucky Me” pancit canton, the right way. Not super soggy, just enough that I can chew it properly.

6. Do not take me to expensive restaurants on the first date, I’d rather check out a museum, watch reggae, or eat sisig.

7. Laugh your heart out, with me.

8. Run and do crazy stuff, again… with me.

Thank you for keeping me inspired with words and photos!

Killing my blog


For some unknown reason, I decided to kill my blog the other day but DIDN’T HAPPEN. I have been very busy participating in life I felt like I had no more time to write. If I am not eating out with friends, or watching movies, or reading a book, I find myself sleeping or Instagram-ing. I intentionally didn’t ask my close friends if it’s okay to them if I kill my blog or whatsoever. Was busy working when I suddenly blurted out that I plan to do so. Of course they questioned me “Why?”, told them I do not feel so inspired at all and there’s so many things going on in my life. They asked me to think again real hard… pulled my brains and stuck a needle on my skin. Arghhhh! Then I said to myself today…

“What the hell am I thinking??? Why am going to kill one thing that I love the most? Personal friends of mine love visiting my site (Thank you so much from the deepest part of my soul). They say my blog is very ‘fun’ to browse and read. Some are surprised I even write poetry and consider me as an artist. My connection to this blog had been so real and killing this will be one great mistake. It may have started out of boredom but I made sure to share real life experiences of my travels and feelings. Besides, I did convince a few friends of mine to use WordPress and then I am gonna kill mine? For sure they will think I am one of the craziest lady they ever met. :)”

So now I need a “BLOG PUSH”. A push that will take me to higher limits in hopes of becoming a better blogger.

PUSH.PUSH.PUSH. As the quote above says, I will continue to look at the stars!
