September 2017

Happy October!

I’m so envious of all you guys who are experiencing autumn/fall right now. (We only have two seasons.) But to also feel like I’m experiencing fall, I changed my wallpaper to a photo of pumpkins! It’s so gorgeous! 😍

In this blog post, I’ll be sharing with you some memories I had last month. Scanning my planner/journal, I noticed, I wrote that I had busy days at work. With all the exams and awarding for the students, plus my daily tasks, it was indeed a busy month for me. I even got sick (I have cough until now.) But aside all these, September has been good! I was able to make great memories that I thought I’d summarize it all here. 🙂 Let’s start!

For The Love of Kdrama 

May 27, 2017

I haven’t seen Wendy (a friend and former colleague) in a long time, for almost four months, I guess. But for the love of kdrama, we finally decided to meet again.

Around 11:00 AM, we met at a fast food restaurant. How I miss her! We then went to her office to get the copies of Pinocchio (kdrama). I have started with the first five episodes already last week but I didn’t have episodes 6 to 20. Their office was nice and wide. They have strong wifi signal (something that I don’t have at work yet. Haha), pantry with swing couches, pretty receiving area for clients/visitors and other cool amenities. After the office tour, I almost wanted to work with them. Haha! Read More »

What Makes Our Mom Special?

But there’s a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking. But behind all your stories is always your mother’s story, because hers is where yours begin. —Mitch Albom, For One More Day


It’s that time again where we all celebrate mother’s day and however we will spend the day with them today, let’s make it extra special. Let’s remind them again how they mean so much to us. It’s the least we can do for them.Read More »

Love > Distance: Together Again // Venice Piazza in McKinley Hill

February 25th. Even before Andy was here in Manila, I’ve been to Venice Piazza Mall once.

It was a weekend and we originally didn’t have a plan to go out of town so we decided to go here instead. Also, we decided to make it as a meeting place to meet one of our friends, Sofia. It’s our first time to meet Sofia! It was really nice to know more about Sofia, too. She’s bubbly and talkative. I’m awkward in real life (haha!) but I got comfortable talking with her and we’d laugh to certain topics too.

Me, Sofia and Andy

The Happy List // January 2017

Happy February to you all!
The month that I’ve been waiting for is finally here! Why? It’s because I’ll be with Andy again. For those who do not know, I’m in a long distance relationship. Nine months ago, we met for the first time in Taiwan and we had an amazing 14 days together. This February, he’ll visit me here in the Philippines and I’m so excited! ❤

Anyway, this January, I had a lot of fun memories – big and small. I’m so glad January flew by smoothly leaving me things to be happy and thankful about.Read More »

Venice Piazza, Grand Canal Mall McKinley Hill

The popular and historic Italian city inspired Venice Piazza’s architecture which gives a romantic ambiance.

This is perfect for the lovers and hopeless romantics alike. Without having to leave the country, this place takes you to another world and offers an unforgettable romantic experience. International dining in an Italian setting can only be experienced here in the metro.

We also have events weekly that can make your weeknights more exciting. [source]

Last January 2, I was able to finally go to this pretty place in Taguig City. I’ve been wanting to go here for a long time now as I’m always seeing it on my Facebook news feed. I’m curious as to what made people like this place to go to.

One of my favorite moments this week is meeting my friend, Alona, again. It’s always fun with her. I love her and I really treasure our friendship.

The last time we met, it was before I went to Taiwan. So when we met again last Thursday, I was asked with a lot of questions about my trip with Andy and of course, I was happy reliving my happy days there to her.Read More »

I have never asked these questions to him before and I’m glad I found these online while I was on the quest for compiling questions to ask each other. 🙂

Which of your personality traits do you wish you could change?
Andy: What traits would I change a bit myself. I would have to say, Be less insecure about certain things that come with long distance relationships, As well as more patience.
Glaiza: My being the great procrastinator. LOL. When will I ever learn???? -____-Read More »

‘Til Next Time

I used to get excited for my last day at work. Especially last Monday, I can’t stop getting excited for Friday to come already. But since last Wednesday, while training the new staff, I couldn’t stop thinking how I’d miss everyone from the bank. Especially my colleagues from the Human Resource Department.

What touches my heart too are the well wishes from other department. Even from those employees I don’t talk much. :’) From employees I considered my friends. From employees of other departments that I get to work with. From the security guards. From my lunch buddy, Sem. Read More »
