See you tomorrow, Babatnin!

Happy Chinese New Year, everyone! How are you enjoying the long weekend? As for me, I should be packing my stuff because I will sleep over at my friend Marsha's house so we can be ready as early as possible tomorrow for our Babatnin trip.

"When a person is loved, they are granted the strength of all seas."

It took me longer than expected to finish reading Simon Van Booy's The Secret Lives of People in Love not because I found it boring but because I found it too mesmerizing that I couldn't help but reread some paragraphs over and over.

Okay? Okay.

I wasn't having the best of days yesterday; it felt too long and all I felt was relief when I was finally safely tucked in my bed. There were several mishaps but the sucky cherry on top was when another bus crashed into the bus I was riding on my way home.
The impact was so great that the glas…

Glamourbox Special Edition: Snoe

I love subscription boxes because it's like receiving a box of surprises each time! The days leading to my receiving a box is filled with tingly anticipation, and my EQ [that amounts to the EQ of a pillow, seriously] does not rest until I have the box in my hands.♡
If I can feel this way about …

Review: Revlon Matte Lipstick in Pink About It

What an exhausting week. I think this is the most tired I've felt since this year started. This has been a terribly busy week in the office, and I had to attend to an extra pile of work today because I was on sick leave yesterday.

"How long will I love you? As long as stars are above you."

I have anticipated seeing About Time ever since I saw the trailer late last year, and man did it not disappoint. If you're one of those people who can only "tolerate" a set number of movies about romance for a period of time  (but, why?), please please pretty please make it About Tim…

Plan your 2014 in Hello Kitty way!

Random fact about me #3,708: I didn't like Hello Kitty when I was growing up. Why, you ask? Well, because all the other girls in school liked her and I wanted to be unconventional. When everyone's color was pink, mine was yellow. When everyone's lunch boxes and school bags and pencil c…
