2016 – The Life Teacher

Posted by on Jan 2, 2017 in ALL, Personal

Hey guys! I’m free-writing for now. Meaning, I don’t have any structure to this blog post. It’s all about my free-flowing thoughts that I type into writing. I miss doing this. This was how I started my blogging back in 2008. I wrote like it was my personal diary, but for all to see. I want to review my 2016, so I can pursue with a better year ahead for 2017. So many things have...

How to Cook Garlic Buttered Shrimp the Lazy Way

Posted by on Nov 18, 2016 in Adulting, ALL, Food

Hello guys! Today we are going to talk about adulting. I have been adulting for a lot of years already and sometimes even I still haven’t figured everything out. I bet even if I grow up to 60 I still won’t be able to figure out everything, but that doesn’t mean I don’t learn things here and there. I try my best and those years taught me a lot of things! Lately, I don’t have help at home so I’m...

Fear

Posted by on Sep 20, 2016 in ALL, Life, Personal

Sometimes, the less words you use, the more effective the message. The more you explain, the more you derail your point. When I can’t sleep, it’s because my brain is on overdrive. It’s exhausting trust me. I’d rather sleep and rest and wake up anew. Did you know that sleeping filters your brain and puts non-useful information to the recycle bin?* This filtering /...

Clarity at 30

Posted by on Apr 13, 2016 in ALL, Career, Life, Personal, Uncategorized

I was talking to my significant other before writing this. I’ve written about quarter-life crisis many years back. But you know, I just realized life is nothing but a constant journey. There are so many things I have achieved – dream, after dream, after dream. I am a multipotentialite. I have many interests and I learn fast. But you know, when you suddenly want to settle down on a...

Hello, Are you there?

Posted by on Apr 6, 2016 in ALL, Life, Personal, Uncategorized

My dear friends, how have you been? It’s been a while since I’ve written a post, one that’s from the heart. I would usually meet people from events and some new faces I see when they attend my class. To my surprise, some would say that they have seen me before, and they would remember me as the great “Flaircandy”. It made me smile and think that I did share a little...

Balance

Posted by on Nov 15, 2015 in ALL, Career, Life, Personal

I thought about how balance is important to the world. How everything has an equation, where the left and right part of the equal sign, has to sum up the same. There’s a formula to everything I guess. Like LUCK = PREPARATION + OPPORTUNITY, SUCCESS = (variables may vary), And so many things. That’s why Math is very interesting to me! I am no genius but I love to see how everything in...

Playahs!

Posted by on Feb 24, 2013 in Life, Personal

Your friends beg you not to go out with them because they are good for nothing! Jerks, douche, attthhhholezzz! Even Kanye begs you to run away as fast as you can! But there’s something about players that I appreciate – romance and all that shindig! They know how to make a woman feel good. They know how to please a woman. They’re dangerous but fun! They have a lot of girls...

Loneliness

Posted by on Feb 18, 2013 in Personal

Sometimes when you’re lonely, you’ll do desperate things. Rich, poor, confused or mature – even if you’re the most emotionally stable person in the world, you’ll feel lonely from time to time. Even amidst a sea of crowd, I still feel lonely sometimes. There are ways you cope up with this. Getting busy, socializing, physical activities and – when you’re...

PXC 35 Results and PXC 35 Outfit

Posted by on Feb 17, 2013 in Featured, Life, Personal, Sports

Pacific X-treme Combat or PXC is quite a new word on my blog.  But, I have learned to  LOVE this sport ever since it was assigned to me on my previous job with TV5. First of all – it’s full of men with hunka-duba bodies!!! *faints*  ABS! ABS! ABS! Everywhere!  It drives me to stay SEXY so that I won’t look like a total frog beside them! Second, it’s a serious sport...

Don’t Do What You Love to Do for a Job

Posted by on Jan 9, 2013 in Personal

They say “Do what you LOVE to do and you’ll never work a day.” I say, “Do what you’re good at.” Work is just work.  And when you DO what’ you’re good at for a job, work is just gonna be easy. I’ve been there, done that. Sometimes, when you do what you LOVE to do as a JOB, it gets political and people, clients and everyone else would dictate...

It’s the MMFF season and it warms my heart to see the cinemas packed!  That just means, we are supporting the local movies.  The second movie I watched had a the very controversial plot.  It was all about sacrificing a marriage and the one you love, just to save a child’s life.

Oh, being a grown-up in this crazy world can be such a headache sometimes!  After I graduated college, I slowly transitioned into the real world.  It was an amazing experience!  For the first time in my life, I got to earn my own money!  Not only that, I get to decide for myself now: what job I take, what food I eat, what time I go home… Being TOTALLY independent is...

Living Smart, Living Comfortable, It’s Your Home

Posted by on Dec 4, 2012 in Life, Personal, Philippines, Pilipinas

Lately, I’ve been so frustrated at Manila traffic. I just went home to Bacolod a couple of months back to witness a very busy festival (Masskara), and yet driving there amidst the number of tourists and the lively festivities didn’t let me get caught in heavy traffic. Coming back to Manila, I experienced the worst traffic situation ever. It’s already the holiday season and...

Blood

Posted by on Nov 27, 2012 in Life, Personal

Nosebleed. Again. I’m sick. I think I have either the flu or cold. It gets worse because I have sinusitis, rhinitis .. You name it. So my nose bled again. Probably from too much snorting. Random thoughts crossed my mind like: – ooh, that’s how red my blood is – amazing! – why is our blood red? – why can’t it be pink? Or purple? Or white? – Then...

Dying Eternally

Posted by on Nov 23, 2012 in Personal

While getting my hair “did” yesterday, I had a conversation with the hair stylist.  She said she loves her children, but she no longer could buy the things she want for herself. Made me think, “I am so not ready to have children.”  But it also made me think if I forever don’t want a child at all… then I thought, if I won’t have a child in the...
