the one

Have you found “the one”? Or has “the one” got “stuck in traffic”? Whatever  stage  you are at, worrying and rushing won’t really help. Things will fall into place at the right time, just keep the faith… 😉 Valentine’s day is fast approaching so I thought this story might inspire some people. I’ve been asked... Continue Reading →

it’s been a while…

I'm back! 🙂 Yup! I probably should change my name from the curious me to the submarine me. Ha! So… why did I disappear after announcing that I was out of hibernation?   *** The plan was to migrate my blog to another platform before posting a new article. I was looking into it… then...

hibernation over!

Oopsie! I unintentionally hibernated… again. 😉  I wrote my travel bag post around February 2016 and meant to tweak and post it before the beginning of March but it didn’t happen.

Whoa! Time indeed flies…I have gone on hiatus (unintentionally!) for the past two months. I was feeling burnt out so I decided to take a few days vacation to rejuvenate and recharge. To my dismay... I felt even more tired after my vacation… It's crazy! So, I opted to take it slow, relax, and enjoy the... Continue Reading →


Is basketball only for tall people? Think again…. 😉 Filipinos love for basketball can be likened to Canadians innate love for hockey. Every street corner in the Philippines is an impromptu basketball court... and people play the game whether they are wearing flip flops (a.k.a. tsinelas), sneakers, leather shoes, or even barefoot! You betcha! I remember when I... Continue Reading →

ilocano = stingy (?)

Filipinos are playful and creative by nature, especially when it comes to coming up with children or shop names.

This playful naming game applies to... Continue Reading →
