2020: The Year of Adapting

Every time a year ends, I choose a word that encapsulates what that year meant for me. Last year, I wrote about how we were saying goodbye to a decade and welcoming a new one, but 2020 felt like a decade in itself.I do not have a comprehensive blog post prepared with this year's highlights, and…

Best Christmas gift ever: My vintage red typewriter!

Best of the Best Manila is a Facebook Group I am a part of where people can ask, well, best of anything. I like browsing through the group as questions can range from best place to get cakes in Manila to best Shopee/ Lazada finds, et cetera, and other members have been generous with answers and rec…

Christmas 2020

When the Philippines was first put in lockdown back in March, December seemed so far away. I was so sad when I had to spend my birthday at home instead of in another country (or city, even), and now it even reached J's birthday a week before Christmas. We were hopeful that the pandemic would be…

My Christmas 2020 Wish List that is Not a Wish List

Hello, friend. How are you? I hope you are well and safe and healthy and strong.Contrary to what I believed during the beginning of quarantine that I would have more time at my disposal since I would no longer be commuting to and from work nor taking coffee or fast food runs, I actually have less t…

I think I may have PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder)

Aside from being a shopping directory and enabler group, my Animal Crossing group chat with my friends from the blogging community has become an invaluable support group this pandemic. Late last week, Ashley mentioned Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) and it was a complete eye opener for me.  A…

My work-from-home situation

On March 2 of this year, our then company President and CCO Leigh Reyes sent an agency-wide email that we would be undergoing a preparedness simulation from March 11 to March 13 to make sure we could keep the business going even if we couldn’t come in to work for an extended period of time, followi…

Hello. I missed you.

If we are friends in real life and/ or in social media you would know that I've been caught hook, line, and sinker by Animal Crossing: New Horizons since I got it in June. J got me a yellow Switch Lite and a copy of the game for our fifth anniversary, and it's been an endless source of joy …

What you need to know about Reverse Loans

Days blended into weeks into months, and before I realized it, it is September. Hi, folks, how are you? I spent the past few months paying off my home loan to Tom Nook and prettifying my island Soliantu. I am talking, of course, about Animal Crossing: New Horizons. My boyfriend gave me a yellow Swi…

“Nothing you can take from me was ever worth keeping.”

I used to pride myself in completing 20-30 books per year, which is easy to track thanks to Goodreads Reading Challenge, but as years passed this number kept dwindling. For 2019, I finished a measly seven books. It's not for the lack of reading material as I still One-Click at least one book ev…

Review: In Her Element Butterlips Conditioning Color

In the last two months and more that I have been home, I only ever stepped out of the gate once - to chase after a vendor selling ripe mangoes. Except for my birthday when I made sure I looked pretty, I haven't applied a full face makeup since we started working from home. Although I use Ellana…

Life in lockdown: How I manage panic and anxiety

It has been more than a month since Metro Manila was placed under Enhanced Community Quarantine to help prevent COVID-19 from spreading further. Since then, every day has been a roller coaster of emotions for me and I found it difficult to cope at first. I am still finding it hard to cope now but a…

34

Another year older.

Today I celebrated my 34th birthday without much fanfare. It is far from what I was accustomed to since I am used to month-long celebrations, but it doesn't mean I enjoyed it any less. I spent the day at home with my family, bonding over good food and great stories.


We coul…

My Singapura Eleganza Photobook

I am turning 34 tomorrow in a couple of hours! Because of the enhanced community quarantine my original plans of spending my birthday weekend in Palawan to watch Survivor shoot in real life have been foregone and instead I will be holed up here at home with my family. Also ever since J and I becam…
