  • Back in the Day

    Of all the drafts I prepared, written and otherwise, I am publishing this one out of an inspiration from my friend Ida’s tweet earlier today. She was right when she said more people are going back to blogging on a… Read More ›

  • In the Most Unlikely of Places

    I wrote this two weeks ago. The vacation’s over but the sentiments remain. I am in the middle of an island vacation as I write this. I made a firm realization that I feel my most confident self when I… Read More ›

  • Life is short, go to Hawaii!

    I just came back from an amazing Honolulu trip! I was there for seven full days. I planned it six weeks before my departure date which left me with a few expensive options but overall it was worth it. Besides,… Read More ›

  • Brake to Break

    I came from one full week of vacation leave from work and it was a good one. Someone even commented at work earlier that I look rested. Partida pa yan, I look like a strawberry πŸ“ after my skin tags… Read More ›

  • Go, Grow, Glow

    I applied for a higher position at work and I didn’t get it. To say I was more relieved than disappointed won’t be a lie. The interview was something that felt like a staff meeting. I knew it then that… Read More ›

  • Attempt

    I have been sitting here with initially an intent to update my CV for a work vacancy, then going from one site to another led to hours of not doing what I was supposed to accomplish. Hahaha, hashtag my life…. Read More ›

  • Loyally Yours

    It may sound crazy but I feel I am cheating on someone who does not even like me, who does not even know I have feelings for him (I think), when I entertain another person’s attention. This tendency to narrow… Read More ›

  • Still Distracted

    I was home earlier than usual and a tiny part of me was hopeful I could finally publish a post or two in my drafts folder. The coherent ones, you know? But after business-related communications (naks, see, my little online… Read More ›

  • Steady

    It’s been a long time since I felt this kind of steady, this kind of calm. I cannot fully say I’m over whatever demons I got because that’s an entire encyclopedia of conversation to dabble in, so I’m enjoying each… Read More ›

  • No Reading No Care

    No Reading No Care. Except not completely. It’s a new high for my reading slump this year. The other difference is that I do not feel as bothered by it. I thought developing an affinity for comic books and graphic… Read More ›

  • Picasso Once More

    My mother requested for a city staycation because we lost our power supply last Thursday night and we were told it won’t be fixed soon. As soon as we left for the hotel, my uncle messaged us that the electricity… Read More ›

  • Say It

    When someone doesn’t answer, there’s your answer. β€” Frank Underwood (@Frank_Underwood) July 22, 2017 Someone shared this tweet of a fictional character over Twitter. So timely. No matter how loud, how “confident”, how put-together someone appears to be, you must… Read More ›

  • Same Page

    I no longer like the guy I pined for in the last two-and-a-half years. I checked and waited if it will change for about a week when I first felt the “meh.” Now it’s not just confirmed. It’s confeeeeeermed. And… Read More ›

  • Two-Prong

    Some say in order to know someone’s or something’s real worth you have to detach yourself from it. Whether by choice or you were made to, doesn’t matter, so long as you take that certain amount of time away from… Read More ›

  • More Books, More Fun – The Online Store! — Now Help Me Declutter My Shelf!

    Updated on 23 November 2018: Lo, the Facebook page was deactivated because I kind of given up on Facebook on some level. But, but, but! I created a new page, this time at a selling platform – Carousell! So I… Read More ›

  • Maybe Next Time, Marathon.

    In a few hours the class of 2017 of The Bull Runner University will officially run their first (or second) marathon and a small part of me (yes, there is a small part of me) is sad that I won’t… Read More ›

  • Where I Ate: Bacolod’s RIBSHACK and LORD BYRON’S

    I recently went to Bacolod and one of the highlights of my trip was indulging in the back ribs craze of the city. I love meat and a big bonus in Bacolod is that their food there is relatively cheaper…. Read More ›

  • Lunch Joke

    I hardly regret the amount I spend on food and books. My taste in food is also very easy to please unless onions are involved. However there are days that will get you. See, I paid 100 pesos for this… Read More ›
