Day 5 : My Proudest Moment

Wow! It’s so hard to think one. Haha! Not that I haven’t had some achievements yet but I just don’t think they’re good enough to write about this blog challenge. 👀
I’d honors, won various contests in behalf of our school, passed exams, and graduated high school but I guess to finally graduate college (few months left!!!!! 😱) is something I would be most proud of!
Just a thought of finally leaving college and not having to study/sleepless nights (at least for a year or two. Still planning to get a Master degree) is heaven!

After several hours…
Can I just scratch all of the above? Haha! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve remembered the part of my life that I can consider to be my proudest moment. โœŒ
When I was still in my sophomore year in college I decided to have a part time job (part-time cashier in the evening at Savemore. my first ever job!) to pay for my school fees. In that 10 months of working, I wasn’t only able to pay my fees but also to give money to my mother, buy myself a plane ticket for a vacation and buy myself a BlackBerry phone!
I’m so proud of myself that I was able to earn while studying.
I miss that part of my life that I can’t wait to graduate already and have a good-paying job or have my own business.


Day 4 : My Dream Job

I thought I’ll be able to blog earlier this morning because I didn’t have to go to school. But since there’s a pageant at Pasay City North High School, where my sisters are teaching and they got my cousin as one of the judges, I came along to watch and I had fun!
Earlier the event, Jason Francisco of ABS-CBN was at PCNHS to promote their Indie film. Aargh! He was handsome in person! I wasn’t able to take a picture with him, though, because of the many students who surrounded him.
As of the moment, I’m writing this blog here at the hospital, accompanying my sister. Nothing serious had happened, she just had a check-up.

So, about the Day 4 of the 30 Day Blogging Challenge.
I’ve mentioned in my Day 2 : 20 Facts About Me that I used to take up Chemical Engineering. That is what my dream job is! To be an engineer. Preferably to become a civil engineer. ๐Ÿ˜€ Chemical Engineering was my mother’s choice. 😜
To become an engineer is the best and to travel because of that work would be a bonus. I know someone who is an engineer and he travels a lot! Even outside the country and I’d always tell him that if only fate allowed me to continue my first course, I think I was like him already too.
So, there! I don’t think I’ll ever be able to pursue my dream job anymore because I now take up Business Management. No worries, though.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you for dropping by beautiful people.ย  โค

Day 3 : My Favorite Quote


Screenshot from The Fault in Our Stars ebook.

I’ve read the ebook last September and it was so good!! I really like the first sentence 😍 after reading that for the first time, I’ve even thought of confessing to my crush! Haha! But I really did not had the guts to do so. 😁
I’m the girl, but would it be fine if I’ll say what Iย  really feel to this guy I like? Haha. Crazyyy. Your thoughts?ย  Comment below. ;)👌

Mobile Photography II

This is a sequel of my Feeling Photographer blog post. ๐Ÿ˜€ These photos were taken months ago and were first posted on my Instagam (glaizabinayas) account.

1. That’s me at QC Memorial Circle.


2. At Seaside, SM Mall of Asia. They’re screenshots of the video I took of lightnings that dusk.


3. I was riding Star City’s Ferris wheel with the view of Manila Bay. 😍


4. I do not know what tree that is but I find it cute. โค


5. My favorite!! 😍😍 I still can’t believe I took that photo with just my phone + Line Camera’s filter. Hehe! 😁


6. Sunset.


7. The following photos were captured at different days but at the same place — at our classroom’s window. Our professors would sometimes say that someday some of us will work on one of the companies there at Makati. They’re somehow our motivation to finish our course. Haha!




I hope you, guys, like them! Which one is your favorite? ๐Ÿ™‚

1. I’m a Filipino living here in Manila, Philippines for 6 years now. I originally came from Iloilo, Philippines (1 hour ride via an airplane from Manila).

15. I haven’t been abroad, never left Philippines yet. 😁

16. I don’t know how to drive a car, only because we never had a car. 😂

Day 1 : Your Blog’s Name


I started this blog last Decemberย  2013 and I really had a hard time what to name this blog. I wanted to use my name but I’m still not that comfortable and confident enough thinking that what if someone I know personally will find this and laugh at how I suck in English grammar. Hahah!!
Even until now, I don’t tell anyone that I own a blog. What they only know is that I read a lot of blogs everyday and that I love it when I meet some of the bloggers I like.
Anyway, about the name – glimmer of happiness – I chose it because I wanted to write anything that makes me happy or any happy moments that’s happening in my life.
Also, I wanted this to be my online diary (because it’s more safe than an actual diary/planner).ย ย  There was a time when my sister read my diary and she kept on taunting me about what I wrote. I don’t want that to happen again.
As of now, I don’t care anymore if someone I know will read this. Haha!

If you know me personally (you’ll know on some of my posts 😜) comment below! :D:D

30 Day Blogging Challenge

I’m seeing a lot of online challenges these days — photo, blogging, fitness, etc. So, tonight, I told my self “Why not do one of those challenges? ” and I chose the Blogging Challenge. It’s actually the “uneventful life” that I have that pushed me to do this. Haha!
I searched for a blogging challenge list and found this!


I love that they’re simple and would at least drive me to blog everyday or every other day. I don’t know because second semester at schoolย  will start on November 10 and I don’t know if I’ll be able to blog everyday. I’ll try though. But if not, I’m still determined to finish this challenge. ๐Ÿ˜€
Wish me luck! Haha. I’ll start Day 1 tomorrow. โค
