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. Sigh… I know, I’m terrible. -_-

So… what kept me busy? Hmmm… Let’s see…

Hiking

  • Johnston Canyon Winter hiking + Height phobia = FUN? :8

Philippine Election 2016

  • I campaigned for Duterte via Facebook. Yup! I’m one of his social media and prayer warriors… To be clear, I didn’t get paid for it. Yeah … yeah… I’m a die hard Duterte supporter (a.k.a. Dutertard)! Deal with it! :p

(I’m elated that in a short span of time, Duterte has already accomplished a much needed overhaul in the government… It’s a long way to go but I know he can deliver! Duterte surely deals with things like a BOSS!)

Travelling

  • Went gallivanting around North and South Carolina together with the gigglers (a.k.a. Little Miss Wanderfuls). Why gigglers? Well…find out for yourselves…;)

Game of Thrones

  • I watched all 10 episodes of Season 6…  I must say, it’s one of the best shows ever! Who are my top three favorite? Jon Snow, Arya Stark and Daenerys Targaryen. Oh! I also like Lyanna Mormont. She’s a badass! Need I say more? :p

Gardening

  • I’m not a green thumb but my husband is! (Yes, I do have a husband. lol)  I’ve been just messing around with the garden. Last year, I was in charge of planting and I might have been too generous with the carrot seeds . -_-

  • Planning to do a revamp and keep up with the times. My blog looks so 90’s. Ha! I’ve been researching for blog platforms…. It will take some time but I can make it happen. 😉

One day…. I’ll be able to post consistently…. One day. 😉 For now, I’ll continue sorting my photos and work on one blog post at a time. Gotta get this going! Aja!

… and I do hear you… I will do a blog post regarding the tidbits of my wedding 1.0 and wedding 2.0. 😀 You’ll be like.. “What? Two weddings?!?” Yes… two weddings.  Details soon kiddos. 😉

Appreciate your patience guys!  Until next time! 😀

at a glance

I bet you’re curious on who thecuriousme is? Get to know me at a glance… Read on!

I’m blessed with a very complicated name… to the point that I have to spell it all the time in order for people to understand it. What can I say, it’s a lifetime battle. 😉

I’m the kind of person who loves to smile and laugh. I enjoy hanging out with energetic and crazy people.  I’m addicted to Korean and Taiwanese Comedy TV Series.  Writing is one of my passions and it serves as an outlet for venting out my curtailed emotions.

My unending thirst for learning has driven me to take up and finish several courses. These are: BS Computer Science in Lorma Colleges (Philippines); MA in Technological Education at Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University (Philippines); through a scholarship grant given by Netherlands Fellowship Program, a Post Graduate Diploma in Managerial Control and Management Information System in Maastricht School of Management (The Netherlands); and a 10-week London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) Level 1 Bookkeeping course in Uptrend Business School (Singapore).

Education, work experience and traveling helped me a great deal to become a well-rounded individual. Teaching at the age of 20 helped me become more flexible, open minded and extremely patient. While in HSBC, I learned to become an effective team player. Dealing with irate clients can be irksome but it’s absolutely fulfilling when they end up being happy and satisfied on how their concerns were handled. Whereas, working in Singapore and studying in Netherlands ignited my interest in learning other cultures and languages.

One last note, I’m a self-confessed nomad. So far, I have travelled few countries in Asia, Europe and North America. I still have four (4) more continents and several countries to go. The three (3) other things that I want to do in this lifetime are: to sing one song without a glitch, become a DJ for a day, and get drunk like there’s no tomorrow.

etymology

Hear ye! Hear ye!

It was brought to TheCuriousMe‘s attention that the “exordium” and “soul sisters” articles are well received (with a big bang!) in the other side of the world. Whoa! That’s totally mind-blowing!

On behalf of the Royalville Family, merci beaucoup!  😉

Moreover, I heard that someone  is inquiring about the etymology of the titles (and perhaps Royalville as well?). You will find out at the end of the article who that someone is. 😀

To be honest, this is not supposed to be divulged to maintain the mystery of Royalville and at the same time, minimize the birth of the growing numbers of copycats.

However, upon a prolix tête-è-tête with Majesty, the cryptic nitty-gritty of the most lionized words in the universe will now be disclosed.

Ready? Here you go:

Royalville
Grandiouse (Royal)  Castle (Ville)

Majesty
A Queen is addressed as Majesty.

Majestylet
Petite Majesty (literally!)

Fairylet
“Little” Fairy
(Trivia: Majesty’s moniker is Fairy. She was named Fairy because previously, she loves to wear “fairy” like outfits)

Beautylet
“Pocket sized” Beauty
(I’m sure you will agree that Majesty is the “Behemothic” Beauty)

“Beautylet” was deliberated for a long long long time.  Several other titles were cited  (in which I’m not going to reveal! ever!) but the X- factor is not present.  Thus, it was agreed upon that the jettisoned titles should be buried 6-feet under the ground. Digging is strictly prohibited!

Furthermore, you might notice that the names are all akin to Majesty. The reason? Well, she’s the Queen and the  three “LETS” are her daughters and sisters rolled into one. I’m not sure if there is such thing in the commoners’ world, but it does exist in Royalville.

However, “LETs” doesn’t necessarily connotes that they are “chuwariwaps”and stooges. Plus “bow” to every whims of the Queen. No Way, Jose!

In the Royalville Family, everyone has the right to voice out what they feel. If it is deemed necessary to revoke a decision made by Majesty, it will be done after careful analysis and due diligence.

One last note, efxaristo to Ms Melody Pacis for your constructive inquiry! We greatly appreciate it.

To the loyal Royalville fanatics, learn more about Majesty, Majestylet, Fairylet and Beautylet in the next articles.  Until then! Au Revoir! S ‘agapó̱!   😉

hooked!

Darn! It’s been quite sometime since I’ve updated my site. What can I say, I’ve been watching Korean Comedy series at least 3 hours a day. I’m totally hooked… again! Sigh…Forgive me … I don’t have much life at the moment. -_-

Hmmm… makes me think that I should start going out on a date or something since the weather is getting warmer. Ha! :p Being idle during the long weekend is such a waste! Maybe an inspiration to keep me going can do the trick… calling MST!

Going back to the Korean Comedy series… I thought I was already over it but I’m completely addicted again…  I guess this is better than eating chocolate most the time… What do you think?

Whether I like it or not, I need to get hold of myself and stop watching for a month or so. I want to spend my energy writing articles for my blog site (www.thecuriousme.com).  I have several pending interesting articles which will surely keep me occupied.

For those who visits my site every now and then, my warmest thank you to all of you.  I love reading your comments!

Aja!
