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. Continue reading

The Happy List | Vol. 05

🔹I won a book from a blogger from Korea! It’s Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses. Maybe I’ll receive the book in two weeks. Continue reading

1. Knowing you’re with someone who loves and accepts you. I feel so happy and blessed thinking about that. ❤

2. I get to do things I love — travel, taking photos and sharing them to my social media, and my other hobbies. Continue reading

My Uber Driver

After the dinner I had with my colleagues, it was almost 12 midnight, I decided to go home and took Uber. For months of availing Uber rides, I’m so grateful I have never encountered rowdy drivers. They’re always polite and doesn’t do any monkey business. Last night, I think, was by far the kindest of all. He was chatty, keeps on using “po” and “opo” to me, calls me ma’am and always thanks me even if I’d just say simple instructions like “Turn left.” Continue reading
