A lecture of a lifetime.

It’s been about two years since I stepped in a room with the sole purpose of learning. When I graduated in 2016, I didn’t think I would miss the mild to intense brain churning that comes with being in a lecture. I wasn’t avoiding it though of course (I’m always looking for learning opportunities), but…

Surf and Sea: Elyu Day 2.

This post is definitely long overdue. The last post about this trip was posted months ago. If you want to check that out, it’s right here. This is day two of our trip to La Union, spent mostly on the beach, but with some gems found in the city. Read on to find out more. 😊 The…

A new year, a new chance.

Hey! Happy new year! It’s been one helluva year, 2017. So much has happened all over the world, it’s kind of unreal. That said, 2018 has come upon us, and with this comes a new chance. A chance to be healthier, be more productive, be happier, be better. This is the time when people start…

Cali galleries: Mementos.

Throughout this trip, I collected some bits and pieces throughout the trip. As much as I love shirts and hoodies as souvenirs, I think that there’s something about small trinkets that just draws me to them. Looking at it now, I wasn’t able to get one from every stop, but regardless I think this collection…

Cali galleries: Balboa park.

Over a week later, and this adventure is coming to a close. If you want to check out the other installments of this series, you can check this post. We’re starting this off after lunch–with my stomach, heart, and soul being full with burger and fries. After we ate, we drove over to  we went…

Taking a break. . .

Hi! I know I missed a week of posting, but I’ve been feeling really crazy lately. My head is really cluttered and confusing, and I think I need some time to reorganize and get my stuff together. That said, I decided that I will be taking a break from posting for the rest of the…

Music monday (on a tuesday): Soap.

The Voice is probably one of my favorite talent shows, and I like to sometimes rewatch the performances from past seasons. Recently, I fell down a rabbit hole of The Voice videos, googled where some of my favorites are now, and I stumbled upon Melanie Martinez and this song. It’s kind of a weird track,…

Just a little update.

Hey! I know my last post was two days late, and I was going to apologize there, but I decided to just make a separate post about it. I’m really super sorry about the late post, and also for not yet posting the other Cali Gallery and La Union posts. I’ve been kind of out…

Music monday (on a wednesday): Help me out.

I haven’t heard of a new song from Maroon 5 for a while now (although I may just have been out of the music loop for years), so when I saw this track a few weeks ago on Spotify, I decided to give it a play–and I really liked what I heard. It fits well…

Let’s cook! Bistek Tagalog

I’m making lunch today and I had a thought to document the process. Bistek Tagalog is one of my absolute favorite Filipino dishes, and it’s very simple to make yourself so that’s a huge bonus. Now, I don’t remember where I got the recipe that I use. It’s been a note in my phone for…

Music monday: Helium.

I first heard of this song when my best friend played over Spotify during a drive. I asked what the title was and who sang it, and made a mental note to check it out later on. I found the lyric video on Youtube, and I’m just fell in love with the track even more….

Cali galleries: In-N-Out.

These next 2 posts happened in the same day–my last tourist day in San Diego. If you want to check out the rest of this series, go ahead and click here. I spent two weeks in California meeting with family and friends, and being a tourist. This series documents this trip. Go ahead and check…
