  1. I just came from an accident. It was a terrifying experience but it was through this situation that made me closer to God. The 3rd party, on the other hand, seems like a hoodlum to me already. He kept on threatening me just to have money. I had no choice but to go to a lawyer since they were doing things in legal terms already. With that kind of attitude, I doubt he’ll make it to be a good lawyer. I am just thankful that everything’s been settled already.
  2. Last July 26, the cousins and I went to Siem Reap, Cambodia. It was my 2nd time to be in this backpacker country. We had a great time!
  3. We are now processing our schedule for the UK and Schengen Visa. I pray that both visas get approved.
  4. 5 more days til my dad’s birthday. Any ideas to give my dad as a birthday gift? Please leave a comment down below!
  5. At the same time, it will also be Chainsmoker’s concert in SM MOA!! I can’t wait to watch them live!

  1. I am currently reading Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. I decided to start with an easy-read book to keep my love for books up & about! Once I am done with Miss Peregrine, Me Before You is next on my list!
  2. I had the opportunity to go to Kalinga Province with good company. We were able to meet the legendary Apo Whang Od, the last mambabatok of Buscalan Village. It was a nice feeling to be able to interact and know her story.
  3. Last May, I had the opportunity to go to General Santos to attend an event called IECEP. It was a splendid event held in Greenleaf Hotel. I would want to go back to General Santos. This time, for leisure.
  4. I was able to discover this new cafe in Quezon City. It has cute interiors that would make me want to stay there the whole time. It actually makes you feel calm and at peace.
  5. I watched Finding Dory on my own. It was my “me time” to begin with. Finding Dory did not disappoint me! I can’t wait for more movies to come out.

  1. It was my first time to ever experience LaBoracay! LaBoracay is usually held every May during Labor Day. There was nothing different when I visited Boracay since everywhere you go, there are familiar people among the crowd.
  2. For Mother’s Day celebration, we discovered this hidden restaurant called Lime & Basil. Lime & Basil is a Thai restaurant. It was your typical Thai food but what made this different is its ambiance. Would gladly go back to try their different dishes!
  3. For this week, I am leaving for General Santos! You may say, “lucky you!” but to be honest, I would not be able to roam around properly. We would basically be in the hotel majority of the time. The reason why I’m leaving for General Santos is for work purposes.
  4. Since I’m leaving for Cambodia (again) this July, I’m starting to save for my pocket money. It may be a cheap country to go to but it’s better to bring extra just in case something happens to you.
  5. Although I’m leaving for Cambodia, the travel bug is still itching within me! Before I leave for Cambodia, I want to go somewhere local. Would you prefer that I go to Siquijor to experience the magical island, San Juan La Union for some waves or Real, Quezon to check out Real Surf PH? Comment down below!

  1. For the 2nd week of March, I was given the opportunity to visit Porac, Pampanga and do Service Learning with the Aeta kids. It has been a dream of mine to be able to see Aetas and interact with them. Along with Teach Peace Build Peace Movement, we were also able to put up a mural to commemorate the Aetas.
  2. Last March 24, I had the opportunity to watch Les Miserables LIVE! It’s been a dream of mine to see the play and it did not disappoint me. To more plays like these, I wouldn’t mind spending .
  3. I was able to watch PARADISE IMF last minute for free! The day before the concert, my family friend messaged me out of the blue and asked me if I was interested to watch Paradise. Their headliner for the event was Kanye West. Who wouldn’t want to miss watching Kanye West’s performance? Although the ticket given to me was the Paradise Express, I still decided to get the ticket. What matters is that you were able to listen to his performance live.
  4. I can’t wait for Laboracay! This will be my first time to ever experience Boracay during Labor Day. Good thing I’m with good company. It might be a disaster if I wasn’t with good company hehehe.
  5. Back already in my parent’s office. HAAY gotta get used to waking up early again.

Time flies so fast so I just decided to put up my 4th Life Lately. Here it goes!

  1. The first week of March was the celebration of my cousin’s birthday. March 1 is her actual birthday. We just had an intimate dinner with the family. On a Saturday of that week, it was a bigger celebration which consists of a lunch with the other family members and her close friends in Manila. It was held in Balay Dako in Tagaytay. Then, there was a drinking session that night. It was such a long time that my cousin and I had a “duet” (if you know what I mean HAHAHAH)2. Our trip to Europe is officially happening!! We started booking our flights and accommodations. We were able to get a great discount for roundtrip to MNL-London. An economy seat would usually cost around¬†60k roundtrip BUT because of the sale, we were able to get it for 30k roundtrip/person. Such a great find! For Iceland, we’re staying in Iceland Air Hotel Natura Reykjavik. Now, it’s more of finding an accommodation for London and for the other places in Europe that were visiting. HEHEHEH

    3. Last weekend, we were able to go back to Baguio!! Because of the TPLEX, the trip to Baguio became faster. We usually would ride the first class Victory Liner bus to Baguio then going back, via car. My dad had a golf game in Baguio. When we went back to Manila, my goodness the heat was UNBEARABLE!! It made me want to go back to Baguio.

    4. On the 2nd week of March, my mom went with me to Makati to check out the universities located in America. Basically, mom wants me to do some continuing education. I still feel that I am not ready. You see, I really have a big trauma when it comes to school and grades that’s why I tend to dislike going to school. School was and is not my cup of tea.

    5. Mom really wants me to work with them. I am still giving it a thought but to be honest, my heart and mind is not in it. No matter how hard I will try to understand everything, it will be all a waste. I really hope there’s a guide map for my life right now.

This is my 3rd update on my Life Lately. Here it goes:

  1. February wasn’t good to me. Actually, the whole 1st quarter (December-February) was not. I was expecting to get that free trip to Hong Kong since I was able to have close sales to be actually considered. Clients kept on delaying and I can’t force them to have everything closed by February. Thus, I felt like I was in a rut.
  2. My cousin’s having her 18th birthday this coming March 5. Once again, I am in charge of the drinks. Gotta whip up something special for her friends since I know her friends love to drink! Another year has passed and I feel old HUHUHU
  3. Last night, my uncle from the States arrived Manila around 11pm. He’s not your regular uncle. Rather, he’s gay and he usually talks about his escapades. Yes, it may seem¬†bastos¬†to listen but I still love him even though he’s like that.
  4. I am starting to get the hang of posting content on my blog. It is a process, baby steps to grow my blog.
  5. Although the 1st quarter was not a good time for me, I need to make sure to do March with a bang!

It’s been a long time since I last posted on what’s been happening in my life lately. Here it goes! :p

1. It was my first time to ever experience Sinulog Festival! Sinulog Festival is a famous festival in Cebu City. Among all the festivals I’ve attended, Sinulog has got to be the craziest one. It’s hard to explain the feeling and excitement in Sinulog. It’s more of “seeing it to believe it”.

2. Because of Sinulog Festival, I was able to explore Cebu City with my friends! We went to Oslob to swim with the whale sharks, swam in Kawasan Falls and Tumalog Falls. It is also because of Sinulog that I was able to meet different kinds of people and expand my network.

3. A lot of firsts that happened in Cebu! Sitting at the back of a pick up, feeling the cool wind brush our faces, to properly see the sunrise. Very surreal.

4. Going back to Manila Ocean Park but this time, with my uncle and his girlfriend. I’ve been to Manila Ocean Park a lot of times but there’s something about this place that just keeps on calling my attention. My favorite attraction would have to be the Penguins. It was just sad that I wasn’t able to feed them. I am definitely coming back and will make sure to feed them!

5. Recently, the cousins and I decided right away to book a roundtrip ticket to Siem Reap, Cambodia (thank you Cebu Pacific for those air fare sale!). Although this will be my 2nd time to go back to Siem Reap, I am still excited because I get to experience this crazy adventure with my cousins who are family.

Life Recently 1

November 30, 2015

Hello all! I believe it’s time for me to spice things up in my blog. I just can’t depend on my travel posts since I don’t have the luxury of time to travel to all of the places I would love to visit. In order to spice up my blog, I decided to make a blog series called¬†Life Recently.¬†I tend to look at other people’s blogs to get inspiration and it so happens I got this idea in Alissa’s blog.

READING//¬†I am currently reading All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. According to one of my best friends, this tackles on the topic of mental illness and it’s a great book that can be considered to be a tear jerker. I got interested with this book because there are not a lot of authors that makes stories on mental illness. I believe authors should make more stories on mental illness so that other readers can understand mental illness and see their point of view. By knowing their point of view, it will be a way for us to help other people with mental illness.

LISTENING// I am listening to Equinox by the American Dollar. This is actually an instrumental type of music. Perfect to listen around early morning.

WATCHING// Due to IFlix, I have discovered a new series called Mr. Robot. The gist is basically about hacking. I found it interesting because I would love to learn how to hack… for fun. LOL.

FEELING//¬†STRESS. I am an overthinker. Due to my work, I have been trying to find ways just to reach my quota. But as of the moment, I still can’t find ways. HAAYZ.

THINKING// of ways on how to get a new client for the month of December. I BADLY need to reach my quota!!!

CLICKING// looking at other people’s blogs is interesting. It’s as if I knew them waaaay before blogs were even invented. This is a good strategy to reach your readers and to meet different kinds of people.

REFLECTING UPON// my life. I worry for the future to the fact I really wish to be really successful.
