    My Bucket List (100 Things I Want To Do Before I Die)

    By now, you’re probably already bored of my travel blog posts. I do apologize, but I’m just the kind of person who makes a series out of everything. I like slicing the events of my life into chewable days so they’re not all one time, big time. Anyway, let me do something different today. I want to share with you my very own Bucket List. Actually, now, I wrote it down clearly saying it’s the “List of 100 things I want to do before I die”, but that’s about the same thing, right? I don’t have the 100 items on my list yet. I’m working on them, though. 🙂 I…

    Magic Monday | Vol. 12

    Oh boy. And just like that, it’s Monday again. But you know what’s exciting about a new week? Exactly what it is – a new week. Seven new days to be productive, to create memories, and to be kind to others and to yourself. I know Mondays make you itch. I feel the same way most of the time. But we can totally counter that by jotting down happy thoughts like the eventful things that happened to us over the weekend. A LITTLE TIP: Whenever I feel crappy, I try to look back on the past few days and rack my brain of places, people, and occasions that made me…

    #IAMFLAWSOME

    The twins Stacy and Danah published their online magazine Plump’s October issue and with it came their campaign for women to embody their flaws by embracing them and being totally okay about it, despite the remorse that comes from other people. Funny how others find it easier to despise our bodies when we give the complete opposite treatment – we love our bodies endlessly and claim that beauty indeed is in the eye of the beholder, and that’s us! Stacy dropped me a direct message on Instagram at 10 pm on Thursday, asking for my Facebook name. She said she needed to tag me on a post. I had no…

    The Sunday Currently | Vol. 5

    I hate having to add “Vol. 5″ right after saving the header because I just remembered putting it at the last minute to be consistent with all other The Sunday Currently volumes. But anyway, it’s the first time I’m writing Sunday on an afternoon instead of before sleeping, so this should be more interesting.. Reading Kevin Kwan’s Crazy Rich Asians. Ahh, it’s so good! Writing The Sunday Currently Vol. 5, and Books I wanna read before I leave earth Listening Sound come off from the fan, sounds coming from the other room (not sure if it’s music or a movie) Thinking Why my neck is hurting so bad and what’s happening…

    How I Got A Needle In My Vein

    I have been feeling unwell since Tuesday this week and it only got worse by the day. On Tuesday, I started having a bad case of stomach ache but I was able to shrug it off by going to the comfort room when needed, thus taking more breaks during work, but I pushed on. On Wednesday, I had a really bad headache, which resulted in me craving for soup and wearing a sweater when we headed out for dinner despite the normal temperature. It rained, but it wasn’t even chilly. And I sweat easily so a sweater was a bold move. I didn’t take any kind of medicine or painkiller…

    Life Lately

    Life has been good to me lately. Nothing really magical has happened but I do recognise the blessings and I am grateful. Besides, with what little I have, I am not going to complain about anything.

    Dear Fat People

    [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1VUrOxRUsE?feature=oembed&enablejsapi=1&origin=http://safe.txmblr.com&wmode=opaque&w=500&h=281] Oh, this is so beautiful! I LOVE YOU GRACE HELBIG!! Comedy can be such a powerful tool and the last time I checked, it was supposed to make you laugh, not cry. Fat-shaming is real and NA proved it 100%, officially making herself one of the bullies. That’s it, it’s all about ‪#‎respect‬. (Oh I’m sorry, Arbour, does my hashtag offend you?) How can you talk about something so sensitive in such a klutz manner? Where’s your humility? Ever heard of compassion, even? Making you “lean” doesn’t give you the right to shame on fat people, in fact no one does. Grace is right, doing it comes off as…

    The Sunday Currently / 2

    I started on my The Sunday Currently last week and I noticed I was doing it a bit differently so I did a quick Google search and found out this one I’m about to do is more common for bloggers, so I’m doing this one instead for this week. The weekend might have been short-lived, but I’m still grateful for the two free days I had despite promising that I will work than play this weekend. LOL, who am I kidding? I haven’t blogged lately and there are a few things I want to blog about, so just to let out the frustration of not having enough time, I’ll squeeze…
