And finding myself at the school's library browsing the books, magazines, etc. and reading what caught my … Continue reading A book is a gift you can open again and again. — Garrison Keillor

BATANGAS │ Fortune Island: The Greek-Inspired Escape in Nasugbu

When my Ate Carina called me to ask if I'm available to join her and her BFF, Wynn (among her son and friends) on a day tour at Fortune Island, I was hesitant to answer right away.

eye care

During the time when I'm under medication for an infectious bacterial fever, I had red eyes (not sore eyes, though) which were very sensitive to light. I wasn't able to have them checked due to my condition. Man, it was so frustrating. Since I have the fever, I was very weak then, with no appetite and … Continue reading eye care

Proverbs 9:11  For by me your days will be multiplied, And years of life will be added to you. It's been an overwhelming and meaningful turn-about for me this year and I'm grateful. Although I still have some disheartening things on the side, I have profoundly realized and saw how the Lord is changing me … Continue reading blessed


it felt so weird she realized. but the feeling did not subside, it made her so sad. she gazed at the setting sun with the windy dusk. and chilled at its warmth shed a tear, as if to warn. she looked away and sigh, this could never be. but suddenly, somehow she already knew that … Continue reading sunset

BATANGAS │ Bo’s Coffee: Homegrown Brew

It was such a welcome treat to finally have this kind of coffee shop in our town. Since it opened, I only got to dine here twice with my childhood friends/barkada. Bo's Coffee at The Plaza at Bauan is such a place to hang out. I love its location considering it's only a few minutes … Continue reading BATANGAS │ Bo’s Coffee: Homegrown Brew

CAMBODIA │Siem Reap: Lotus Blanc Resort

I've known about Lotus Blanc Resort long before my childhood friend Sandra and I planned our Cambodia trip. There's this blogger whose site I always frequent and she blogged about it- good reviews I must say so it isn't too hard for me to choose this as another option. This hotel was our chosen second home during our … Continue reading CAMBODIA │Siem Reap: Lotus Blanc Resort
