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

Love > Distance: Together Again // a trip to National Museum

February 24th. We started our day with a breakfast at Mang Inasal. I ordered grilled chicken. Andy ordered grilled chicken too but with a side of palabok and lumpia. I don’t usually eat palabok, I don’t know why, but I gave it a try again and it was good! I’ll order the next time. I always have a full tummy every time I leave Mang Inasal.

Love > Distance: Together Again // Andy’s First Time Here in Manila

I’ve been with Andy for almost a week now and I’m so happy to be with him again after being away from each other for the past 9 months. Looking back, I feel like it’s so far away. All the waiting and video calls. It was hard. I miss him terribly everyday.

But here we are! Together again! A week longer than our Taiwan trip 9 months ago as he’ll stay here in Manila for 21 days. Yep, he’s here in Manila for the first time! ❤

Below is a daily record of what we’ve been up to:

February 22nd. Andy’s first day here in Manila! Because I went to the doctor first that morning, he waited for me at the airport for almost 45 minutes and he’s complaining about the heat here already. Haha! I was soooo happy seeing him. 😍 Waited for 9 months to finally hug him again!  Continue reading

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

First Week of 2017

And just like that! Days passed by quickly that we’re now on 2017’s 2nd week. I could say I had a great week last week and I’d like to thank my friends, family and boyfriend for it.

Here goes my first week of the year:

  • Jan. 1st, Sunday. When the clock struck midnight, we had our media noche! We had paella, adobo, grilled fish, buko pandan, pansit, beef tapa, mango float, etc.  Thanks to my sister for preparing all the yummy food. ❤ After that, my sister, Claire, and I watched random YouTube videos, like documentaries and vlogs, until 7 AM.
  • Jan. 2nd, Monday. After almost 8 years, I got reunited with my friend/classmate (from elementary to high school), Rogelyn, and her cousin Alaine (whom who still wants to be called Ashty) haha! We went to Venice Piazza in McKinley Hill, Taguig City and had our late lunch at Zark’s Burger. Click here to see more photos.

56 days ’til Christmas

56 days before Christmas! Like me, who’s excited here for Christmas? 🙋  I still do not know my plans for Christmas but, I think I’ll spend it at home with my family. (Like last year and the year before.❤) Wish I could spend it with Andy, too, though. I could already imagine how fun and exciting would that be. Decorating the Christmas tree together. Cooking and preparing food together and exchanging gifts. Watch Christmas-themed movies. Visit our friends and family together. Sigh! I miss him so much!

Anyway, how cute is that Christmas decor – small lamps on tree branches. 😍 This photo was taken at the entrance of SM Aura, Taguig City. 

At home, our tree isn’t up yet but, I remember, last year, we already decorated our tree when it was only October. 😁 We’re that excited!

Do you have Christmas decorations at home already? How do you think you’ll spend Christmas this year? 😊

Boyfriend Tag

Hello, guys! 😀

I first learned this Boyfriend Tag on YouTube as most of the YouTubers I follow have done this with their boyfriends. A fun way to see if your boyfriend remember things about you or your relationship.

After dating for over a year and a few months, I’m pretty sure Andy and I have talked a lot of things already. Read on and find out if he answered all the questions I asked him about me. 😁

1. I’m sitting in front of the tv, what is on the screen? 

🔸 Thelatest episode of a documentary *you know me very well. Haha*

2. You know how much I like flowers but, what kind of flower is my favorite?

🔸Tulips *riiiight 😍😍* Continue reading
