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...

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...

On Being Beautiful

Posted by on Jan 17, 2012 in Career, Celebrities, Entertainment and Lifestyle, Featured, Life, Personal

A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely. ~Roald Dahl Just a quick thought for today. I’m so inspired about David Archuleta’s positive outlook on life. He brightens up the room. His...

Life Lessons: A Flair for Financial Freedom

Posted by on Dec 2, 2011 in Business & Finance, Career, Featured, Life, Personal

Failing to plan is planning to fail. I’m always a planner when it comes to school, work, my daily activities, my own health and even with relationships.  I have a conservative approach in life and always prepare for the worst.  I believe that I don’t have the power to control events, other people’s actions or reactions, and the opportunities or chances that come my way.    But...

The Lucky Girl

I’ve been taking creative writing class with Aileen Santos at the Modern Academy at Burgos Circle, The Fort 🙂 I always love writing – hence I started blogging.  And even I was a kid, I always kept a journal or a diary.  And I had a notebook full of made-up stories.  I don’t know where it is now because we often moved houses. This class really helped me put structure to my...

Sleepless nights, uncertainty, lack of purpose, thinking too much about the future…  And you don’t even know what’s wrong!  Oh yes, the much dreaded quarter-life crisis.  I’ve been ranting about it on my blog since December just to let it out of my system and I’ve been depressed and it was dissappointing for me how I could see other people get affected by my...

For A Cool Shirt, Stick with Classic Icons

Posted by on May 22, 2011 in Career, Fashion

Novelty shirts are a bona fide mainstay in the “light-hearted options for fewer than 20 bucks” category of gifts. But the overarching category of “novelty, or “cool” (interchangeable) is not itself always a safe bet when choosing the right fit. They come in all sorts of varieties with all sorts of pop culture references (the one unifying factor in all such shirts is...

First Time in Palawan, Flower Island

Posted by on Mar 27, 2011 in Advocacy, Art & Photography, Career, Featured, Palawan, Philippines, Pilipinas, Travel

I must say, I am so reluctant to admit that at my 25 years of being here in the Philippines, I haven’t been to one of the most beautiful places in my home country – Palawan. I have heard the many good things people say about this place but sadly, some sad events happened too that I shared with you here. Apart from that, cyanide and dynamite fishing were very rampant, killing our...

Demi Lovato Twitter Photos, Rehab and Disney Scandals

Posted by on Dec 18, 2010 in Career, Celebrities, Entertainment and Lifestyle, Life, Personal

I really don’t follow this Disney girl a lot.  Not until I heard on TV that she admitted herself to rehab not because of drugs but physical and emotional issues. Demi Lovato Twitter Photos I was like “She’s doing fine.  Everyone thinks she’s doing fine, but she’s struggling with something.”  I admired her for being responsible and bravely took the first step to address her own...

Singapore Food Festival in Manila

Posted by on Jul 20, 2010 in Career, Events, Food, Travel

If you look at my archive, you will see that I have tons of posts about Singapore.  There are many reasons why I love dropping by the country often.  One, they host a great Formula 1 race, two – the food is just great, three – it’s so safe traveling there alone, four – you’ll never run out of places to go to or run out of subjects to take pictures with, five – commuting is very...
