Sailor-themed top & Faded blue jeans (Part 2)


Finding a quiet place in the city is like finding an oasis in a desert. Spending most of my years dealing with the hustle and bustle of the city, my soul always craves for a place where I can just be alone with my thoughts, even just for a short time. That's what I found at Chaoyang Park somewhere in Beijing.

Life Lately: De Novo!


I have been living in my new haven for four months and eight days now. So far, everything is still close to how I imagined it would be. I'm back to doing what I do best (sit and talk, haha!), I'm starting to enjoy frugal living and basically I get to do the mundane things that help me tap into my inner creativity (whatever that means!).

LSS: Love me like you mean it!


Oh hey! So, we've got another country song that has been playing over and over in my head. It's Kelsea Ballerini's LOVE ME LIKE YOU MEAN IT!

8 Ways to beat Monday blues


I bet 95% of the people who are currently employed usually fall into this crappy warp every week. Seriously, who doesn't want to spend more time with their pillows, blankets and warm bed on a freaking Monday morning??? 

But believe it or not there are people who have somehow found their edge against this phenomenal nuisance, myself included. I haven't always lived like this. Just like you, I used to despise Monday too especially when I was a teen. I simply hate seeing the teachers' faces, submitting homework and talking to people when all I really wanna do is bury my head in my pillows. But come working years and all of a sudden I am a totally different person, kinda~

Last day up North (Ilocos trip part 3!)


We got back to our creepy 'hotel' to get our stuff and get dressed for our next stop. At exactly 12 in the afternoon, we marched back to the same spot where we got off the day before.

What's up, Laoag? (Ilocos trip Part 2!)



Well…the adventure continues as we head up North a bit more. After getting on a bus for about 3 hours or so (2 hours of that spent standing!), we finally reached Ilocos Norte.

Seriously, you CAN choose to be happy!

I don't know how strong people get their shit together but along the course of life, I have learned some ways on how not to pass on the negativity virus to the people around me. I'm not being delusional here, I'm just trying to live the best way I know how. These may or may not work for everyone, but you can at least give it a try!

Why am I running?

 

I ran my very first marathon on the 4th of January 2015. That’s so much easier said than done, really!

To run or not to run?


 Those were the two crazy questions that kept creeping in my mind one Friday night (January 9th)....well actually that was already Saturday morning (January 10th) . So, I'm back in the job that I love, YAY! But this time I'm only doing a part-time PM shift, and that's only about 6 hours of work in a day, YAHOO! And of course, I'm back to spending Friday nights eating out with my friends at work which I really missed while I was in China. And that means going home at midnight and getting only few hours of sleep for a Saturday morning run. Was going home late worth it? YES! So, I have to deal with the few hours of sleep then! But then there were these creepy voices in my head arguing about whether or not I should run. Here's how it sounded like in my head:

New Year, New Paradigm!
