Currently Vol. 30

27 July 2015
Up until the very last moment before I clicked the Send button I really didn't think I would be able to, but I finally went ahead and did it!

My Activity 1 for #StrangeLit, sent in at 7:09 PM
Not so much of a buzzer-beater this time, yay!
So, yes, I think I'm really doing this! Eeeek! Wish me luck!

CURRENTLY VOL. 30

READING


I just finished reading the two volumes of The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories that I have, and I'm now trying to decide which one to read next among my humongous pile of unread books - either in towers in my room or taking up precious space in my Kindle.

WRITING
My ideas for #StrangeLit. I really hope I can finish this! Aside from wishing me luck, please cross your fingers for me also!

LISTENING TO
... myself yawn every five seconds, heh. I'm sleepy.

THINKING
... if I should change my blog's color scheme because I'm feeling quite sick of it already. Remember when I used to change my blog's layout and colors at least twice a week, just because? LOL. I don't have the time to do it anymore, so I just looked for a layout I really, really like and then just change the color schemes every three months or so. Here are some of the schemes I'm trying to choose from:




FEELING
Nostalgic, especially immediately after the school hop we did at Pitogo High School last Wednesday for FutureYou.PH.


LOVING
The cameo on the Paper Towns movie. I don't want to spoil it to those who haven't seen it yet so I won't say who it is! I almost clapped! The only reason I didn't was because my arms were wrapped around my boyfriend while watching, heh.

WANTING
A reunion with all my close friends from school, university, and my former office.


NEEDING
The power to not sleep without feeling groggy and grumpy in the morning.

WISHING
That my Hogwarts letter arrives soon. I've already spent so much on Muggle education but whatever.

My Marauder's Map is ready
WHERE IS MY HOGWARTS LETTER??
I hope you are all well, my friends! Enjoy the last few days of July! Take care of your hearts. ♥

Currently Vol. 29

21 July 2015
This week's Currently comes a day late because reasons. Also, I feel like all I ever post here are my Currently updates. I HAVE to blog more but work and life keep me pretty tied up. I am reminded of this when this came today:

Auto-renewal of my domain
Yay to another year for krissyfied.com!
If you're reading this, THANK YOU for still sticking around! ( ˘ ³˘)♥

CURRENTLY VOL. 29

READING
I'm relishing the last couple of stories in Eliza Victoria's A Bottle of Storm Clouds. I really like her writing style and am awed at how expansive her imagination is and how easy she makes writing urban fantasy seem to be.


WRITING
My ideas for #StrangeLit. It's tough when all your ideas come to you in the shower and you have no means of writing it down. What I do is I repeat them in my head over and over until I feel like I have committed them to memory, and then grab a pen and paper or my phone the moment I step out of the shower.

LISTENING TO
Carly Rae Jepsen's Emotion. I think I want to go to her concert.

THINKING
[Still connected to #StrangeLit.] More ideas to add here:


FEELING
So so. It was a pretty difficult day and I am looking forward to curling up under the covers. I am so ready for a new day.

LOVING
That I was able to catch up and reconnect with family and friends last week.

With my friend Dewi
With my friends Alex and Kira at the Physiogel event (blogging about this soon!) last Wednesday that Miah and I went to after we saw Ant-Man (such a fun movie!)
With our interns Josh, Precious, and Paolo during the Dunlopillo event held last Thursday, which is incidentally their last day with us
With Ana on the day cursed with traffic of epic proportions 
During a day-out with family last Saturday in celebration of my cousin Janet's birthday
This coming weekend I'll meet up with my former officemates. I can't wait! Times like these are rare and far between, so I really cherish them.

WANTING
More time to rest and recharge. I feel like it's all I ever post here, heh.

NEEDING
To write more. I feel like I've neglected this blog for far too long, and that makes me sad.

WISHING
That I can finish my story for #StrangeLit. I really, really, really wish that.

I hope you are all well, my friends! Take care of your hearts. ♥

Currently Vol. 28

13 July 2015
I was so sick of the rain this past week. It doesn't matter how good being bundled up in blankets with a good book feels; the endless rain seriously put a damper on my spirits.

In any case, I'm still thankful it inspired me to pick my paintbrushes up again and paint.

Under the [yellow] umbrella
Here is this week's Currently!

CURRENTLY Vol. 28

READING
Eliza Victoria's A Bottle of Storm Clouds, still in preparation for #StrangeLit.

[TRYING TO WRITE]
My entry to Activity 1 for #StrangeLit and my contribution to The Galvanizers' comeback issue! See my article on its maiden issue here.

LISTENING TO
The beat of my heart.

THINKING


FEELING
Blissful.

LOVING
This feeling and hoping it never ends.

WANTING
My own apartment nearer the office. I waste so much time and energy going to and from my far, far away home it should be illegal.

NEEDING
My own apartment nearer the office. My office is in Paseo de Roxas in Makati if anyone reading this has any leads! TIA!

WISHING
... For my own apartment nearer the office and unlimited funds so I can shop the Dunlopillo Great Big Sale.

In line with the launch of the newly renovated showroom at MC Home Depot in Bonifacio Global City, Ital Design will be providing special prices for its premium Dunlopillo mattresses from July 16 to 19. 
This generous gesture celebrates their one of a kind luxurious showroom, innovated to enable customers to imagine the possibilities that the mattresses and furniture hold. Ten uniquely decorated vignettes in styles appealing to every type of customer feature the Dunlopillo mattresses, which are highlighted in every display.

What can customers expect from visiting the new showroom? An introductory discount for Dunlopillo’s new model mattress Elena, which will be sold at the special price of 50% off. All-time favorite mattresses Romero Premium and Firmest Luxe will also be included at reduced prices. With premium goods at reasonable prices, those who are looking to decorate and furnish their homes certainly have every reason to visit the new Ital Design showroom.
Gotta work more so I can earn more. Another busy week awaits. Good night and good luck, my friends! ♥

Sample Room presents: Calchews

11 July 2015
The worst work schedule I ever had was the 3 PM - 2 AM shift I had in my old job. It was a four day/ eleven hour-work week that didn't feel like it was worth it because the "extra" day off I had, I just spent on reclaiming sleep. The worst  part is that because I was too scared to commute at 2 AM, I had to wait in the office until 5 AM, when it's relatively safer. And because I would already be too tired, too cranky, and too sleepy when I get home, I would skip meals and just drink a glass of milk instead. Less than two weeks of that bad habit and I was at the doctor's, diagnosed with gastroenteritis. I didn't know you aren't supposed to drink milk when you aren't eating LOL. At least I know better now. 

I remembered that story because I love milk but I don't get to drink it as much as I would like. As a growing kid yuppie in her late 20s who subsists primarily on takeout food, has an active social life, and has a demanding work life, I am aware I don't get the recommended dietary allowance my body needs to remain in tip-top shape.

That's where vitamins and food supplements like Calchews come in.


Calchews is the only calcium supplement in the market that comes in a delicious chewy form. It contains Calcium plus Vitamins D and K to help protect and strengthen bones and teeth without the risk of heart disease. It comes in two variants: Caramel and Chocolate. Getting my recommended daily dose of calcium just became more fun and convenient!


Vitamin D is responsible for enhancing intestinal absorption of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphate and zinc and prevents rickets. Its best evidence of benefit is for bone health. Meanwhile, Vitamin K helps prevent calcium deposits in the heart, therefore reducing the risk of heart disease. These two work hand-in-hand for our bones and teeth, and since I don't get to exercise these days AND I'm wearing braces, these are really helpful for me. This is also perfect for those who don't like drinking milk!


The fact that they both taste so good helps a lot in making me feel that I am not ingesting yucky medicine! I like both flavors but my preference leans towards Chocolate more only because I'm more of a hot fudge sundae-girl than a caramel sundae-girl. But seriously, Calchews taste so good (with just the perfect mix of soft chewiness and flavors that it took all of me to stop myself from taking more than one!

Make it a habit to treat your bones well and try Calchews. You can actually get your free samples from Sample Room! All you have to do is create an account (if you don't have one yet) and request for your samples!

It should be noted though that you should consult your doctor first if you are pregnant, nursing a baby, or taking blood-thinning medicines before using this product. 

Calchews are available in boxes of 7's (P90.20) and 15's (P180). Enjoy!
