Just this year, I told myself to commit to making good habits. One of these is not using straws. I know that it is bad for the environment, and it is totally useless, and obviously human beings can live without it. But half a year later, I am still struggling and failing to commit to give up plastic straw. But every time I saw my friend posts on how she did it every single day in instagram, she inspired me to strive and push myself more.My boyfriend, gave me this idea to interview her in my blog and to…

thai-binh-province-vietnam

It was my first time to try solo travel, I’ve been saying it a couple of times that it was one of the most amazing experience I ever had.I volunteered to teach English in a Homestay in Hanoi, Vietnam. During my stay, I met a lot of wonderful people in just that short span of time. Because of them, Vietnam will always have a special place in my heart.Another thing that I always say in my travels is that, it’s the people that makes my travel more incredible. Whenever I try to recall a place, it…

visited-bantayan-island-again

Reminiscing my first visitI remember the first time I visited Bantayan Island.I was 16, and about to enter college. I took the university’s entrance exam and the school’s administration office said that the result will be revealed after a week. We needed to wait so that I could enroll to the university. During that time, we stayed in my Aunt’s house, she is Mama’s first cousin. While waiting for the result, they decided to go to Bantayan Island, where my grandfather was born.I actually had no idea about the island back then. I…

travel-solo-while-married

I always believed that in order to grow, we have to experience things on our own. Having our own space means we can decide, execute and reflect about our own actions. And by that, it can lead to a better version of ourselves.I already shared with you some girls all over the world who travel solo for while being in a relationship. I learned a lot from them, but I also wondered if there are women who travel solo while married. And I am glad to find some of those strong independent women.Here are some of their experiences…

we-need-community

“No man is an island”A common phrase we are all familiar. But do we know what it really means?According to science, humans need other humans in order to survive. Most importantly, to remain sane. We can go crazy without talking or seeing another human being. This is very true. Humans need community, for them to feel love, to connect and to feel they belong. This is why we all have that longing that we need to fit in. This is part of our human nature. So don’t be sad about that fact if you feel that way…

Weekend Mate from Shanghai, China

The world is too big, yet at the same time so small. Isn’t it ironic? Or this is just what technology (or I must say the internet) is all about. To make us connect easily to other people. But sometimes, it made us more attached to our social media life than our real lives. I can’t blame you, sometimes I fall into that hole and just post good things in my social media accounts to make my life more interesting. This is the truth that I lately realized; my life is actually more interesting than how I showed…

take-her-to-the-mountains-on-the-first-date

I’m not an expert on dating games but I know a little about this department. Knowing means I did some dates before, not often though. But I would like to share some thoughts about first dates. It is a crucial step for both sides since it depends on it if you’ll have a second or a third date. And to make it more special most men over do it or under do it. They mostly think of ways what most women would like to do. So boys, to break what you normally think, girls are not all the…

The Shape of Circle

the-shape-of-circle

I like the shape of circle now.I like it for many reasons, but most importantly I like it because it reminds me of you.I like how round your eyes are. Those brown eyes lead me to you even before you introduced yourself. I like it even better because I can see your emotions from those, and I like it when they shimmer when we talk.I like your nostrils that are shaped like small circles. When you sniff and smell my hair, my face, not to mention my underarms. It tickles me and it makes me comfortable with…

island-mission-day-strong-waves-testimonies

Growing up as a Catholic, I always hear the phrase “Spread the word of God”. Back then, it was just a phrase for me that I usually use in making my reflection for the Sunday Mass in High school. An assignment I need to pass and to conclude everything in my writing, I shamefully addressed it as a simple action. And here I am embarrassed of what I did in my teenage phase. With this in mind, I come to think how the apostles did it. It’s amazing how they lack transportation, yet they were able to give catechism…
