Monday thoughts #4 : I want to travel the world, but first…?

Maybe the places on these pictures looks very familiar for you, guys. Maybe you’ve been there. But I have only seen it on pictures. I haven’t been anywhere! It’s my ultimate dream to travel the whole world. These are just some of the few countries I wish to visit before I reach the age of 30. But there’s a lot more, they’re just too much to be mentioned one by one. Nobody can deny the beauty of our world. It’s too beautiful not to be seen by our naked eyes.

Somebody once told me, “Stand up and go somewhere nice and beautiful. Travel and see the world while you still can because after 20 years, you will not regret the things that you did, but the things that you did not do.” Which I thought is true.

So by then I’ve decided. I want to see the whole world with my own eyes. I want to meet different people and try to understand their culture. I want to share our own culture as well. I want to travel and be on different places before I cant do it anymore then in the future, I can look at my pictures and I can say,

Ive been there. Ive understood the people. Not by their language but by their culture. For a few days  i felt what they are feeling. It was a bit strange but those days, i somehow felt more alive.

Ive been there. I have witnessed the beauty of that place. Thank God for His wonderful creation. A creation which is made by love and must be a subject of the people’s love too. For a moment I thought I saw a glimpse of heaven, but i somehow felt more alive.”

But…..

I told you guys, I have never been anywhere!!! I’ve never even travelled my own country!

Hello hello hello Philippines! As far as you may know, Philippines are rich of beautiful places that you could visit. Nature is our big trend! But who am I to say these things wherein fact I did not yet visit any of these places. Then i thought, if I want to travel the world, I should at least travel around my country first right?

For sure I will!! And I believe I will be starting in a few months. Kung may kabayan readers diyan! Any suggestions of places sa unang gala ko sa pinas? Comment below!

Ps: I was supposed to post this last night but something came up. I hope you guys understand!

5 things that made me smile this week

Hello sweetpeeps!

So I’ve decided that this day (Saturday) will be a day of the week wherein I will be stating 5 good things that made me smile the past week. You may ask, why saturday? Well, I don’t know also. I just felt like it haha. Saturday here in UAE is the start of another week so this may be the perfect day to internalize what had happened the past week. Agree or disagree? If you have any suggestions on which day I should post this segment then let me know by commenting below!

So let me start this week with this. I hope this will make you smile too!

Happy pill #1  

Holiday off! I am working in a medical clinic so even if there’s holiday we don’t take day off. When you work on a holiday, it will be counted as an overtime but not for an overtime pay. You will be receiving 12 hours off in exchange of your overtime. But I did not took that chance to have that 4 hours excess. haha I just want to feel that two days straight without work. Just eat and sleep. It was aweeeeesome. Since I also don’t have school that day. I just slept the whole day and pig out in between.


Happy pill #2 

FOOD! On my day off, me and my brother took the chance to go out and eat at RICE OVERDOSE. It’s a Philippine Restaurant in Abu Dhabi. I think it is the only restaurant here in UAE offering “Isaw“, a famous filipino street food. They also offer Bibinka Halo halo and a lot more. Probably I’ll be writing a review of this restaurant ASAP.

Happy pill #3

This might be a little “why the hell did this make her smile?” bullet. I received a free nose piercing set from Blomdahl. Check their website they offer beautiful jewelries. Cool stuff! (I will be posting a little bit more about them as soon as I already tried the nose piercing.. that is IF I will try it).

Happy pill #4

Rahwie’s First Anniversary Party part 1. Boodle Fight. It has always been a tradition of the troop to have this boodle fight food party. I think we’ve already been doing this for five times and it’s always fun. Food plus Karaoke or Playing Jenga. Who wouldn’t smile if you’re in a food party with your favorite people.

What exactly is a boodle fight. It is a military style of eating wherein the food is served on a long table. Banana leaves will be used as a plate but in our case we just used a long plastic. Bare hards are used in eating. There’s no need for spoon and fork! Rice and Viands are scattered evenly on the leaves. It’s a fun way of eating with your friends and with your family!


Happy pill #5

Special USB. Every time we are having a get together, the camera of Rowie and Rahpy is always available for use, but we’re not hoping that the photos will be uploaded as soon as possible. haha I had a hint that she will do something like this. But I didn’t know that she will do it this time so I’m in a little bit of shock and excited. Each USB contains images arranged carefully by folders. Each folder for each event that occurred. It’s a very good gift idea in celebrating friendship!

So why smile? it is because …

Whatever you wear, it will not be complete if you’re not wearing your brightest smile.
