They say that “absence makes the heart grow fonder” and I couldn’t agree more. That said, working six days a week has not been easy in terms of hanging out since both mine and Carlos’ schedule rarely overlap which is why when we got the chance to have the same day off, we decided to go to Hong Kong to relax. And by relax, I mean walking till our feet hurt, trying out food places for the nth time and taking pictures: lots of them! Continue reading “Good Ole Hong Kong”
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t miss hanging out with these people. Like I said in my previous posts, we were only in Dumaguete for a really short, but sweet time. However, looking back at the photos that everybody took, it sure seemed like we were there for a much longer period.
I’d forgotten all my woes during that time. And while we’re all fully grown adults, walking around Silliman University made me feel like a teenager/student hanging out with my good old friends. Continue reading “Dumaguete – Part 3”
It’s been more than a month since our last trip and I’m still not done posting about Dumaguete. Do bear with me as I’ve been busy lazing around during my days off, but then again, it’s not like anybody really cares whether I post this or not. However, I’m doing this for future me, so I’ll have something to look back on whenever I feel like reminiscing.
Anyways, moving on to our second day in DGT, our friends took us to Apo Island where it was definitely a first for me since I’m not really a big fan of being in water whilst I do enjoy the occasional swim. You see I have a phobia of water for some inexplicable reason, but not to the extent where I wouldn’t try things for the first time. I wasn’t going to miss out on swimming with the turtles especially when everybody was going to do it. Continue reading “Dumaguete – Part 2”
It’s been a while since I shared anything on this blog mostly because I’ve been so preoccupied with work and mostly work. However, about a month ago I got a much needed break where my childhood friends and I flew to Dumaguete City in the Philippines. And there, we met up with two of our other friends. I don’t speak for everyone when I say I certainly did not know what to expect although their airport reminded me of Cambodia because of its size. We got our bags immediately, went outside and saw our friends waiting for us which was so surreal given that we had not seen them for a while and the fact that we had not slept the night before. Continue reading “Dumaguete – Part 1”
It’s been a while since I last blogged again, mostly because the past month has been an emotional roller coaster ride, but I’ve kind of gotten a hang of it. I must say it’s been tough having to work alone, but now that’s over and I feel okay.

It’s been a while again since my last post because I’ve been so busy #adulting and trust me when I say it’s getting old. However, I do not want to get into details because what I really wanted to share with you guys in this post is a video of our trip to Japan last February when we got to explore a few more different cities than we previously had. Watching this video over and over again has made me miss being in another country or city, getting lost in translation (applicable to countries that do not have English as their native tongue), eating good food and of course being with some of the people who matter to me. Check it out and enjoy!
All credit goes to Carlos for this video, but we do not own the song!
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t miss Paris and the fact that it’s already been 6 years makes me wonder if I’ll ever be able to step foot in the city of Love again soon. However, nobody ever said that we couldn’t look back and daydream, right? Continue reading “BRB, Daydreaming of Paree!”
July has only just begun and while good things are happening in my life and I’ve learnt to embrace the fact that I’ll just be here, I can’t help but feel unmotivated in my current w-place. And after learning about what this person I worked my ass off for thought about me, I did not take it well. Continue reading “Reality Check”
My recent trip to Little Rock involved my whole family getting together due to the fact that my little brother graduated from college which I might have mentioned in a previous post. I have without a doubt so much love for my family even though we drove each other nuts at some point (because what’s a family vacay without a bit of drama?). Continue reading “Little Rock, Arkansas”
If there’s anything I love doing in Macau on weekends (Sundays, in particular), it’s lazing around or pigging out with Carlos, family or friends. Continue reading “The colorful side of Macau”
