A little weekend getaway never hurt anybody, except for our wallets which are in dire need of mending. But jokes aside, I’ve always looked forward to days when Carlos would be off on weekends and thankfully two weekends ago, he was which is why we decided to go to one of our neighboring cities, Shenzhen. We didn’t really have a concrete plan before going there because neither of us had the time and let’s face it, we both suck at planning. And besides, I wanted it to be super chill and relaxing though I sort of lost it on our way to the Muji hotel because google maps gave us the wrong directions. I don’t really have the right to complain because I suck at directions and if there’s anyone who should’ve been mad, it’s Carlos since he’s the one who makes sure we get to our destination.

In my previous post, I mentioned that I haven’t been motivated at all, but things are starting to look up in my personal life and in a way my work life. However, I’ve decided to focus on the former (but I’m not going to go into details in this post) instead of the latter because that’s just the kind of balance I need.

Recently, I’ve been feeling a little under the weather due to the fact that it’s the second week of April and I still have so much to do. I have also not been motivated for the longest time now. However, there’s also no point in bumming everybody out, so I’ve decided to blog about a place I’d forgotten all about until now. Continue reading “Flashback Friday: Little India”
“We’ve got a loooooong way to go”… I told Carlos as we made our way to Arashiyama. And honestly, we do because even though I turned another year older just last week, there seems to be so much more in store for us waiting to be unleashed.
It was a blast from the past because my senses started tingling the moment we stepped foot at the Fushimi Inari Shrine.

Where would you say the happiest place on earth is? Why, Disneyland, of course, though some people might answer differently. On the 17th of February, we were able to go to both Disneyland and Disneysea! That meant twice the fun if we’re being logical… Continue reading “Japan Series – Tokyo Part 2-2: The Happiest Places on Earth”

From Macau to Manila and Manila to Narita, we made our way to Tokyo station via Narita Express. Despite being a little bit groggy, we checked in to our hotel, freshened up and off we went to explore the city of Tokyo. Continue reading “Japan Series – Tokyo Part 1: An overview of the city”
I’ve had so much to share with you guys since I had a lot of posts drafted, but I never got around to posting any of them due to the fact that January had been nothing but an emotional roller coaster ride for me and my family. And it doesn’t end there. The battle continues and we all continue to be strong as we face this ill feeling of uncertainty, but I’ll spare you the details for now.
