    Goodbye, My Activist Sensibilities

    This is the blog post wherein I’m slowly saying goodbye to my activist sensibilities and embracing pragmatism in my life. There are times when I like to think that I’m a Purist. In fact, it’s far from the truth. Purism means that the way you should think and act adheres to what you believe in. Strictly unadulterated and transparent. No ifs, no buts. It’s all-or-nothing. So far in my living existence in this world, I don’t know of any human who is strictly following Purism. I recently blogged about how my activism got amplified to the highest level. I realized that I’ve always been an activist. Not as hardcore as…

    Sunshine Blogger Award Nomination

Or maybe those that are just dominant prefer vlogs over blogs. However, it was only after I joined WordPress that I realized that Blogging is very much alive. There are a million people who write and read. I’m glad that I have found a community here. I would like to thank Currently Apple for this Sunshine Blogger award nomination. I promised Currently Apple that I would answer her 11 questions. I somehow feel like a celebrity now. LOL Here it goes: 1.…

My Trip to Ayutthaya In June of 2015, I had a trip to Thailand. As a highly paradoxical country, Bangkok offers a wide range of activities that every tourist can enjoy. After all the wild partying in Bangkok, I spent my last day in the Mecca that is Ayutthaya. In spite of the tourist commotions, the caretakers of Ayutthaya have maintained its Peace and Divinity as one of the Unesco World Heritage sites. Visiting each of the temples denuded some madness in me. Such…

    My First Gel Pedicure Experience

    I’m just a girl. I love to be pampered and do stuff with my nails. When Davao Bloggers Society girls were offered free services of our choice at any Nail-o-holics Davao branch, I immediately signed up, wanting to experience my very first gel pedicure. I opted for the gel pedicure and foot spa. It was indeed relaxing! I also loved the smell of their scrub (lemongrass flavor). It was Miss Barbara who was assigned to me. She was very careful in handling my nails. She would ask me almost every second if it hurt or if the water or UV is too hot for me. Aside from that, she also…

    Real Neat Blog Award Nomination

    Upon opening my WordPress app on the first day of October–I was surprised when a blog comment notification showed up from Dear Kitty. Some Blog. She told me that I have a Real Neat Blog Award Nomination. Since I was a nominee, she has 7 questions for me to answer. 1. Where do most visits to your blog come from? Most visits come from my country, the Philippines, narrowing down to my city, Davao, then narrowing down more to the org which I’m very proud to be part of, the Davao Bloggers Society, and also visits from my friends, whom I’m expecting much support. Yes, when you start a blog…
