New Years Resolution

2013 is officially old news now. It is now considered a thing of the past. Let's all say Hello to 2014! =) Every year, I make a list of things that I ought to change, things I need to remember, new things that I should be doing to make me a better person. But 2013 had proven me utterly wrong, last year was an upside down topsy turvy year for me. I gave up my profession, gave up my career as a registered nurse. If you ask me why, I can't give you a direct answer because up to this day, there are still a lot of questions that were left unanswered. I left my hometown, flew all the way to Manila to search for that one thing that will hopefully make me a fulfilled individual, to find that something that will make me happy. I ended up landing a job as a call center agent, It was cool at first, mastering the art of speaking fluently in English came naturally to me because I've been using that dialect since the day I learned how to speak. Being a call center agent is , something that I've always wanted to try. It's something I know I'm good at, Something I know I could excel. But, It didn't make me happy. That's how 2013 was for me, searched, discovered and learned a lot of new things. But, something is still missing and I hope I'll be able to complete that missing part this 2014. 

So what exactly are my New Years Resolution ?

1.) Spend Less, Save More. 

Don't get me wrong. I can reallyyyy save. I have that special ability of saving and spending at the same time. but, this year I'd like to learn how not to spend on things that aren't important, things that I don't need and won't be needing. Like for example, spending moolahs on shoes. This is one addiction that I have to control and get rid of. I have to make my self understand that I already have a bunch of shoes, and I don't need new ones anymore. =)

2.) Early to Bed and Early to rise.

I'll skip this resolution for now because I have always been nocturnal. and right now, It's 5:00 am of January 1st and I'm still wide awake. but, I'll try my best to get my body clock on it's proper form this 2014.

3.) Less Carbs, More Exercise.

I need to get into an exercise routine because 2013 was a carbs year for me. Didn't even care about exercise. This year I need to work out more and eat more fruits, veggies and drinks lotsa water. Avoid my favorite Mountain Dew and My favorite Tenga barbeque from the kanto! =D

4.) Find a permanent job

Find a job that will make me feel happy and fulfilled. A job that will not make me feel that I'm working.  A job that for the first time I would really enjoy and at the end of the day I won't feel stress and burned out about it. A job that I can make a career out of. I just need a freaking job! =)

5.) Find my passion in life

Ever since I was a kid, My passion would always have to be dancing. Dancing is something that I enjoy doing, Every time I dance It makes me forget about things that bring stress to my life. Right now, I need a new passion, something that I will feel excited about, something that will hopefully make me a better ME.=)

6.) Letting go

This year, I'm letting go of everything that had brought me pain. especially those people who only treat me as one of their options. I believe I deserve better!

7.) Travel More

Places that I would love to visit this 2014 : Balesin Island, Singapore, Macau, Indonesia, Bangkok. I know this will be pricey but even just one among the five will be amazing =) I would really love to visit Paris someday, but that will be part of my new years resolution for the year 2030. =D

8.) BE BUSY.

This year, I hope things will be hectic for me, I hope I get to do a lot of things. I hope my organizer for this year will be full of scheduled appointments, meetings, vacations..anything just to keep me busy and to help me forget about the things I should be forgetting and focus on things that needs to be prioritized. I just want to feel that somehow I'm in the right direction, that I'm going somewhere and someday I'll be that someone that I've always wanted to be.

9.) Learn to Live, Love and Be Happy.

These are the three things that I've always wanted to achieve, and I hope I get to live, love and be happy this 2014. Fingers crossed. =)

10.) Be Strong.

I keep telling this to myself, but somewhere in this puny brain of mine, It won't listen. This year I'll make sure everything will be different. I'll live my life one day at a time.  It will be the end of all my dramas that I've been having for 25 years now, I'll start smiling no matter how stressed I am and just simply, be happy =)

Most of the time, I don't get to fulfill my new years resolution but at least I know who I am, and what I want to be starting this year and for the next years to follow. I don't normally tell other people my resolutions but this year, I just felt the urge to share it. 

Whats your New Years Resolution? =)

Got Hooked

I had been a bum for more than a month now. So, since I was bored and had nothing to do but bum around even more. The normal bum stuff like eat, sleep, text, surf the net, eat, sleep, text, surf the net and It goes around in circles every single day. and so, one day while chatting with my best friend on facebook. She asked me to watch this television series which she recently got hooked to, after she sent the link to me, I tried to check it out..

And this is what came up,

My best friend definitely knows how to knock some sense into my bum brain. This story revolves around two waitresses namely Max and Caroline. Max is the streetwise girl who was born in a working class family, while Caroline was born rich but unfortunately lost all her fortune after her dad was arrested. They are both working at a diner, together with Oleg (their perverted chef) and Earl ( their 75 year old black cashier ) which is managed and owned by Han Lee. 

Both Max and Caroline are very determined to make their cupcake business a success with a little faith and luck they both know that they will surely succeed. 

This television series really helped me rise from my boredom HAHAHA =D It's a must watch. Enjoy. They are on their third season which will be aired on October 7. =)

Tagaytay Weekend Getaway II

Good Morning, Tagaytay! 

I'mmmm...well being the insomniac that I am, haven't slept yet but I'm still packed with so much energy that can last me for 12 hours more ( I hope) =D 

Since Ate Jena is already awake, she dragged me along for breakfast. I immediately said YES, because I know there will be pancakes, my favorite breakfast food. =)

Almost done with breakfast. Time to tour the rest of Tagaytay! =)

First stop, visiting a friend's rest house. The place was beautiful, calming and relaxing. Just what everyone needs, a relaxing environment =) Let me just show you some of the pictures I took. 

I just love it here. It would really be nice waking up every morning having breakfast in the garden with this view =)

This is me, a little crazy. Doing yoga poses. I can't help it. The place is huge that I can do hundred cartwheels around the garden =)

Next stop, CALERUEGA.

This is my first time to set foot at this place. We visited the place just at the right time because we could see the sun set and every thing was picturesque. =)

It would really be perfect to have my own dream wedding here someday =) Aside from weddings, you can also have your retreat in Caleruega, they even have cottages for overnight stay =)

I hope you enjoy viewing my pictures, just as much as I enjoyed taking them =)
Have a wonderful week, loves.

Tagaytay Weekend Getaway I

My cousins and I, needed a much deserved vacation after a long week. So, we decided to go on a 3 hour road trip to Tagaytay. Home away from home, away from the busy streets of Manila even just for two days would relieve us from stress. and Since, we left home around 4pm, we arrived at Tagaytay around 7:30 in the evening. First order of business, Dinner! We have always, always loved Tagaytay's bulalo and so, we had dinner at Bulalo point! =)

Food was superb! Everything was just oh so delicious! =)


Next order of business, where to check in. We had our drive around Tagaytay searching for a place to crash for the night, and the best place to stay when you're in Tagaytay is none other than at Taal Vista Hotel. Their room rates are normally priced at 8,000 pesos and above, but since both my cousins are SM advantage card holders, we had the price lowered to almost 50% off 4,800 pesos to be exact. Awesome, right? =)

Bonding with cousins. We just love how everything looks and feels cozy =)

What I love about Hotels are their free toiletries. I'm very particular with these items. We don't normally use them, we pack our own stuffs every time we travel. So, what I do I end up packing all these things up and taking them home with me. =)

Checking out the bathroom and ended up taking bathroom pictures with my cousin =)

I wasn't sleepy yet, and so me and my other Ate ended up touring the hotel, and staying at the lobby for free wifi! =)

My favorite place, the Fireplace. The much needed warmth =)

OK! So being the insomniac that I normally am, I ended up staying awake the entire night playing my favorite game " Doors and Rooms ". so freaking addicting! =D

More pictures on my next post =)

Just last weekend, My cousins and I went to Tagaytay for an overnight vacation away from the busy streets of Manila. I felt really happy being away for awhile, what made it more awesome is being with my two bestest Ates! and so, the reason behind my AWESOME outfit from Lavish Life Closet =)

Photo was taken outside Taal Vista Hotel while waiting for my Ate to give us the GO signal that we've already finally checked in. =)

My "awesome" crop top and gray skirt all from Lavish Life Closet. You can check out their items HERE. These pair make a great team, right? =)

Retail Therapy is the answer

Stressed? Depressed? This past few weeks, I've been so damn stressed that the only solution I know that can help me relieve from all the stress and depression, is my favorite cardio workout.. SHOPPING! Where exactly do I go when I feel so down? there are only few shops that I go to, that can actually cheer me up. 

First Stop, 

Japan Home Centre. Since I have always, always love shopping for home stuffs, this shop is definitely a happy place for me. Most of the items are priced for as low as 66php. My favorite items are their black and pink stuffs which include baskets, organizers, carpets, trays. I just love them all and they are all so affordable. 

Second Stop,

I am a book lover by heart. I've always enjoyed reading, ever since I learned how to read. I remembered when I was in grade school, I would always save up money so that I can buy a new pocket book, my favorite is Sweet Valley High. Up to this day, I still have my collection of pocket books with me that's how much I value them. So once in awhile when I'm bored and stressed, I go and check BOOK SALE for affordable books. They may not be new but they are in very good condition. Plus, you have a variety to choose from.

Third Stop,

CD-R King. OK! Now you think I'm weird. but, I assure you I am very normal. The reason I visit this shop is that they have a lot of different, interesting items you can choose from to help you decorate your gadgets. Since, I love decorating my laptop and phone, I end up buying most of the items here. Recently, I bought a cooling fan and USB port for my laptop. I'm planning to buy new speakers on my next visit to Cd-r king. =)

Fourth Stop,

OK! No store in particular, so long as they sell shoes. HAHAHA =D The reason I chose Janylin and Payless is I bought my newest pairs from two of these shops. From my previous blog posts, you all know by now how shoepaholic I am. So, enough said =)

Fifth Stop,

I love their Watch Collection in Tomato, and they are all affordable. Most watches are priced for as low as 800php. I can't leave TriNoma without dropping by Tomato. You can even check out their online shop at www.tomato.ph for new products and for SALE items that can go as low as 50% off. 

How about you? How do you relieve your stress?

Who is your favorite KARDASHIAN?

So, Who are the Kardashians? They are the famous,wealthy,crazy family with their very own reality television show that started years ago, that apparently I got so hooked that I never missed out even one episode. Their the type of family that no matter how crazy they become, they know that they will always have each others back, they know that they will always have their family to turn to no matter what the problem is. I've always found their life interesting, no matter how many times they fight and argue, at the end of the day they would always find ways to compromise.

1.) Bruce Jenner

Ok! So, He's not a Kardashian, but what the heck he's part of the show. and He took responsibility of taking care of the Kardashian siblings when their father passed away.

2.) Kris Jenner

The mother of all Kardashians. The leader. Has done every thing to give her children the future that they all deserve. She made sure that all her children would grow up financially stable, street wise and career wise.

3.) Kourtney Kardashian

The eldest among the Kardashian siblings.  The one I believe to be the smartest and yet the most serious among all the siblings. has two children namely Mason and Penelope with long time boyfriend, Scott Disick. I am a witness to their topsy-turvy whirlwind relationship which was quite evident in their famous television show. but, despite all the drama that they've experienced, their relationship just keeps getting stronger.

4.) Kim Kardashian

The favorite among the siblings. The money maker as what Kris Jenner mentioned on one of their episodes. The prettiest and hottest they say. Had also experienced her fair share of up's and down's, high's and low's in her life. but, remained firm and strong with her family's love and support. She had just given birth to her baby daughter with boy friend, Kanye West.

5.) Khloe Kardashian

The most outspoken among all the siblings. She voices out whatever she wants to say without hesitation. and YES! She is my favorite. There were rumors that she was not a true Kardashian by blood because others gave comments that among the siblings, she was the one who looked different. But, nevertheless, she didn't let this rumors get to her, she remained strong and true to herself. A wife to basketball superstar, Lamar Odom.

6. Rob Kardashian

The only boy. He had difficulties trying to make a name for him self because of the fame and success his sisters are getting. But, this did not stop him from pursuing and leaving his own mark in the industry. 

7.) Kendall Jenner

The Model. She was born and made to be a model with a pretty face, the height, slender body and long legs, she could easily make a mark as a model. She has done various endorsements, runway shows and cover photos for different magazines.

8.) Kylie Jenner

The Youngest. She recently just turned 16. The most gorgeous among all the siblings, I believe. Together with sister Kendall, she also does runway shows, cover shoots for different magazines and various endorsements from different well-known products. More is yet to be expected, so watch out for the youngest Jenner.

So, Whose your favorite Kardashian?
