I bet everyone is celebrating now that the Philippines just won its 4th Miss Universe crown, care of Catriona Gray. I’m not a hardcore pageants fan but when it comes to the Miss Universe, I would support whoever the Philippines’ bet is. I would watch the show accordingly and also have my own bets aside from Miss Philippines. To be honest, I have not followed … Continue reading Hola, Catriona, my new bias and my thoughts to her winning answer
I can’t contain it. I just really love this girl, Ariana! As an older millennial (okay I admit it), I grew up listening to bubble pop, mellow, boyband and girlband pop, grunge, soul, and r&b. That’s farfetched from all the EDM tunes and even the synth-pop, electronic/soul haze, and folk-pop music that are currently dominating pop music. This trend makes me deviate from what usual … Continue reading Thank U, Ari. Looking forward to your next!
There are times when I like to think that I’m a Purist. In fact, it’s far from the truth. Purism means that that 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 now of any human who is strictly following Purism. … Continue reading Goodbye, my activist sensibilities
How on earth did a consumerist pig and a highly extroverted person like me get my activist sensibilities? Nope, it’s not because of my UP Education. 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 … Continue reading Circa 2016-2017: Activism Amplified
The film Goyo has been all the buzz since it was shown. Just like its predecessor, Heneral Luna, social media was of great help to improve its popularity. I have been following the film’s hashtags and several people on social media have been promoting it and giving their two cents. They can’t get over its story. There are people who even watched it 5 times … Continue reading My Goyo Realizations
I am no beauty guru or beauty blogger, but I’ve been asked what products I use to have this skin. It’s not perfect; I actually have some little warts (darn I have to get rid of them). I also get acne at times especially before my period or if I feel like going barefaced when I’m out (Yes, I do an Alicia Keys sometimes). I … Continue reading So, I was asked why I have yummy skin LOL
This blog post contains spoilers, but don’t worry, each sentence/paragraph has a warning. I am no comic book superhero fan. Nor do I ever put their movie franchises on a pedestal. I even criticize them, to the point of finding unexpected pleasure of watching them just a few days short of their premiere. I find it really fulfilling that I could detect their political agendas–which … Continue reading DP2: How Wade came to be my favourite superhero
It’s quite unfair that we prioritize our national elections than our barangay election when it all starts micro and small. You might not know what’ll happen to your street or household that need barangay help. 2 yrs ago, a strange man had been lurking around our residence at around 12mn for 3 consecutive days, with a flashlight in hand. A week later, he came back … Continue reading Vote in the Barangay Elections
In the past few weeks, I have been reading more about positivity and the law of attraction, almost like being obsessed with it. I meditated a lot, I listened and read about it via the masters like Rhonda Byrne, Abraham Hicks, and the like, and listened/read a lot of miraculous manifestations of regular people, but never did I ever expect that I was about to … Continue reading How I manifested 100GBP almost miraculously
Don’t take anything or anyone for granted. It’s cliché, but with every life cycle, we forget to remember the great people and things that happen to us–until adversity strikes our lives. For the past two months, I’ve recently had a lot of breakdowns (like that of Jaclyn Jose’s famous breakdown scene in Ma’Rosa) because there have been setbacks in my business which I have no … Continue reading Don’t take anything for granted.
