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.”
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!

A lot of things had happened the past week and from being actively healthy and happy, I am here right now using inhaler and drinking medicine syrup for running rose and cough with additional ginger tea with lemon which is by the way really good for your throat. You should definitely drink it when you have sore throat and cough. But even though I am sick still there were a lot of things that happened the past week. Let me state to you 5 things that made me smile this week.
Happy pill #1
It was just some time ago when I started to go jogging at the middle of the night. Since it has been a very long time since I last went jogging I hardly finish one lap without stopping. So for the first time in forever, I just finished one lap without stopping! One lap consists of 600 m I think. That was a small number for those of you who have good stamina. But for me, that’s an achievement unlocked!
Happy pill #2
I received another gift this week! and I super loved it. I got one super comfy shirt and one case for my mobile. The case have a super nice design. It was customized. She told me that I look like that cartoon. But I told her maybe I don’t have pimples and of I have long hair.
Happy pill #3
Movie galore + food trip with my gals. During the past weeks, I’ve been enjoying going on the other room to go eat dinner with my friends. Before i just stay in my room and sleep but I have been enjoying eating dinner with them. So last wednesday, they made melon with mango shake, cooked Fishball and Kikiam then watched movie while eating. It was so fun!
Happy pill #4
My family and friends are really concerned about my health. Isn’t that a very nice happy pill. It feels so good when you have them while you’re sick. Somebody will take care of you when you’re to lazy to do something, like going to the hospital or drink meds (which I barely do even if I have fever).
Happy pill #5
Being hooked is awesome! Not a cold nor cough can stop me from singing. I though I will perform really bad yesterday. But Thank you Lord for making me perform well! It was actually a better performance than last week. What really made me smile yesterday was the way the audience smile while I was singing. It makes me happy also when I can be able to sing their song requests. Especially when it was requested to be dedicated for someone.
So I guess for this week 5 happy pills ain’t enough so I will be adding one more!
Happy pill #6
Rowie and Rhapy’s First year Anniversary Party Part 2 Ft. Dusit Thani Hotel, Abu Dhabi. It was fun preparing for the party. Since it’s a surprise of Rowie to Rahp we helped her a lot with the things to be prepared at the hotel. It’s a Candle light dinner themed evening. We made a heart collage of their pictures and taped it on the window. They prepared the tables. The room was full of roses and candles. It was very beautiful! What’s the happy pill here? because of the love of friendship!
So it’s the second day of May, but I think it’s not too late to post my April Favorites! I’m very excited to publish this because this will be the first post of my “Monthly Favorites” series, but I wasn’t able to make time yesterday. Let me apologize for that.
In this series I will be showing you some sneak peak of my favorite products the preceding month. To be proper, I must be posting reviews on the products beforehand. But as of now, I haven’t made any reviews on all the products that I will be posting except for one. Lemme start
MY APRIL FAVORITES!
FAV No.1: L’Oreal Paris Studio Line Silk & Gloss Curling Mousse
I have a natural curly hair. So I really need something that holds those curls together to avoid looking like a witch, but on the other hand will not make my hair greasy or oily. Then I found this amazing product from Loreal. Having curly hair is nice, looks nice. However, it’s the most difficult to manage, tame, style and take care of. Good thing I found this product.
FAV No. 2: L’Oreal Paris Elvive Total Repair
Another favorite from my hair care routine! When I get bored, I usually cut my hair short. And that’s what happened 6 months ago. I got bored then cut my curly hair. I colored my hair 3 times after that, then that’s it.. HELLO DRY HAIR! So I really need something just like this…. ohhh ohhh ohhh I want something just like this (*Coldplay* if you know it) Oks sorry. One word. Intoxicating. Using it once, makes me wants to use it more everyday. Super love it.
FAV No. 3: Yoko Eye Gel
As a student, I lack sleep. But sometimes its just either I am playing or watching Korean Dramas. Whatever the reason is, the problem is that I am having a lot of trouble with my dark under eyes. And so, I buy this Eye Gel. I love the product because it is so soothing and also reducing the puffiness around the eye area. I love using it before sleeping.
FAV No. 4: Flormar Watermelon Lip Balm
OHHHhhhhhh my favorite lip balm! I already made a review of this one. If you want to read it just click here. I think I will be using it for a long time, and probably will buy a new one or maybe I will try another flavor?
FAV No. 4: The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Cleansing Daily Solution
If you will make me choose which one if my most favorite among all of these products, probably I will be choosing this one. It’s a product from The Body Shop. It is a daily solution that you should put after toning your face. It is specifically made for blemished skin which suits my skin type well. I super love it. I love everything about it. Maybe even if my skin isn’t blemished I will still be using this one.
That’s it! I hope you enjoyed reading this. I’ll try making review on all of these mentioned product this week.
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”— a famous Idiom which sounds simple but very meaningful.
Most of us, not only girls, often stare at the mirror and ask ourselves “Do I look beautiful?” “Do I look nice?” “Will my friends like my outfit?” ” Why does my face look big/small/black?” ” Why am I fat/so skinny?” “Why do I look ugly?” “Why do I have pimples?” and so on. Admit it or not, I know you ask yourself some of these questions maybe not all the time but some days of your whole existence. Well, I want you to know that you’re not alone. I’m here and a lot of girls, a lot of people, too asking the same questions over and over again.
But come to think about it, if one day you try to make yourself look nice by putting make up on, or dress in a different way there will always be that somebody who will not like it. For example one of your friends always compliments you and saying you’re beautiful even if you don’t put make up then suddenly you started putting some on. Maybe she will not like it.
This picture of a same girl with different style of make up on. All looks fine but to tell you the truth I can tell you what I think the most beautiful one to the least and my opinion might be different from yours.
People have different opinions as to what is attractive or not. You may look beautiful to others but may not look appealing to another. So what is the purpose on trying so hard to make yourself look beautiful? If the reason is just because you want to make others compliment you and praise you, frankly speaking, you’re just wasting your time.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not telling you to stop putting on make up or stop dressing yourself nicely. What I’m trying to convey is not to put too much effort on just trying to impress other people.
I’ll give you my personal rules of how to feel beautiful and how to be one.
Rule no. 1 DO NOT DRESS TO IMPRESS
Whether going to a party or just a simple gathering, it is not impossible that you want to show off. I can’t blame you with that. Sometimes I also feel the same way. But there is something I want you to understand. Dressing to impress will not make you completely happy. Why? because you are only doing it for other people. There comes the next rule.
Rule no. 2 DRESS FOR YOURSELF
As what I have stated in rule no. 1, you must keep in mind that you are not trying to be beautiful just to make other people be “WOWed” by your appearance. I believe I already said this before. If you read my old post, then this post will be just a reminder of that. Make yourself look presentable and neat so that others may respect you without letting go of being fashionable. Under this rule Iwill give some things that may benefit you if you keep in mind to dress for yourself.
to gain respect
to gain confidence
to feel comfortable ( which leads you to the third rule)
Rule no. 3 BEING COMFORTABLE OVER BEING FASHIONABLE
Being fashionable isn’t all about wearing what is trending or what is on style. You must never forget that you are supposed to be wearing what is comfortable for you. You will not dress up for just a 10 minute event, maybe you will, but not most of the time. You are wearing what you choose for maybe an hour or more so you must wear the clothes that you’ll never regret wearing after some time.
Rule no. 4 LESS IS MORE
This is my personal rule that you might want to apply too. Less color, less accessories, less make up, less of everything (but not of cloth haha) looks more appealing for me. But sometimes there are some styles that looks much better with more accessories on or with more skin like the boho style.
Rule no. 5 LOVE YOURSELF.
This rule is simple. Love yourself then all the rules will be easy afterwards. If you love yourself then you know how to dress up and you already know the reason why you want to look beautiful and presentable.
Rule no. 7 BE YOU
Nothings beats your personal taste of clothes. What you think is beautiful might really be beautiful. If you think it doesn’t look good then don’t wear it. If some accessories you wore doesn’t feel right then remove it. Trust your instinct.
The one very important key point of this context that I want you guys to remember is that, “Whatever you wear there will always be that somebody who will love it and compliment you, and that somebody who will not like it and say bad things about you. So don’t force yourself to wear what you think other people will like. Just trust yourself. Wear what you feel is right. And also, don’t forget to smile and always be confident.
