Things To Do and How To Get To La Mesa Ecopark, Quezon City

La Mesa Ecopark has been one of the places I wanted to visit for so long when I wanted a quick escape from the city. The location discourages me to travel, though, as whenever I hear “Quezon City”, I always think it’s too far from me.

Last week, the urge to go somewhere was strong and I felt burned out from work so I really needed to go somewhere with lots of trees. I brought Mom with me and off we go to La Mesa Ecopark.Read More »

First Time Seeing Cherry Blossom Trees

Last February 15, 2018, I flew back to Taiwan to be with my boyfriend again. (On why we chose Taiwan of me going to Canada instead, you may read it here.) It was such an exciting day for me. Prior to the flight, I haven’t seen my boyfriend for almost a year so I was very excited.

First thing I noticed is the weather. Manila weather is always around 32 degrees Celsius and I’m used to that. I knew it will be cold in Taiwan but I underestimated as I only brought two jackets with me. It was 20 degrees C when I arrived. That is very cold already to me who’s used to tropical weather. I loved it, though!Read More »

How to Achieve the Teal Effect on Photos in Three Easy Steps

So many people are into this trend even months before and I think this is kind of a late tutorial. Ha! But for those who doesn’t know how to yet and want to try, then this post is for you. I just recently discovered how to do this while I was playing with the Lightroom app and I loved it! But, I think, this is only best to use for photos with blue color like nature photos of sky and ocean/beach.

Let’s start!

1. Open your Lightroom app and choose the photo you want to edit.

MEETING MY COUSIN AGAIN AFTER ALMOST 5 YEARS

How happy I was to be with my cousin again after almost five years!

My cousin is having a job training here in Manila for three weeks and I was excited to see her again that I offered to pick her (and her colleagues) up from the airport. Upon seeing her, the first thing I noticed is that she has grown taller. Way taller than me and she’s only 22 (I’m 26).

The Happy List | Vol. 08

It’s been raining for days now and I love it! Though, it’s a little inconvenient because i go to work walking in it, this long weekend made up for it. It can rain all it want because I’m only staying at home with my hot chocolate drink and Korean dramas. And another thing I’m thankful about this rain is it gives a cool weather. What’s the weather in your area now?

Also, students are back to school. Seeing them makes me miss my high school life and friends.

Anyway, here’s my happy list:Read More »

Spontaneous Road Trip // Pasay City to Batangas

Hello there!

It was a holiday last Monday and Tuesday so my sister and I decided to go on a road trip. We didn’t exactly know where to go. All we know is we don’t want to stay at home all day. Haha!

We left the house at 7am but decided to drop by at our sister’s house first. We took the route near the airport and I got nostalgic when I saw the airplanes. While on the way, we saw a side street vendor selling fresh mussels and oysters. We bought oysters and brought it to our sister. Oysters are one of my favorite seafood ever!

After we left our sister’s house, we headed to Tagaytay and had brunch.Read More »

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? 😊
