Remembering How I Met Your Mother

My boyfriend playfully (and I use the term loosely) scolds me whenever I look back at grievances other people have done to me, saying I should stop living in the past and memories shouldn't hurt me anymore. But I can't help it if certain things affected me so much that I can still remember…

My Manila International Book Fair 2016 Haul

This week left me feeling drained and exhausted, and I seriously couldn't wait for the weekend. Not to rest, though, but to be in the company of books. ♥
The 37th Manila International Book Fair started last Thursday but because of work my boyfriend Miah and I only got to go yesterday.
As expec…

Making a wish on a sticky note

Remember when I wrote two shortstories last year that were published as part of two separate ebook anthologies? Remember when I said I would expound on them and write the continuation to turn them into novellas? And as for the case of A Sky of Wishes, write more stories in the same universe? Remem…

One thing that was very popular when I was in grade school-…

Make Me Smile Mondays // 090516

So I'm slowly easing into things and hopefully I'll regain the hang of blogging again soon. ♥
Work and the commute going to and from the office still take up a huge chunk of my weekdays, but with the convenience offered by UberPool I am able to minimize travel time and have more energy and …

Of tokens and prizes

You know those UFO Catchers in arcades? One of my ultimate dreams in life is to be able to snag a prize from one of those machines, and if that fails to at least have someone win something for me. Isn't it frustrating when you think you already got it, and then it turns out you didn't? Arg…
