Paper Dolls and Paper Houses

Good thing about taking airplanes is the view from the top. I always like looking at how houses and trees would slowly shrink from life-size figures to minute spots as planes ascended. Thus, this blog post's title.

Anyway, the company that I currently work for had an event in Manila. I had to attend as this was my first time attending as a participant and being exposed to this kind of events would allow me to grow as a person and as an employee in the company.

It's actually like a team-building camp for our clients. Only thing is, I came as participant so I get the privilege of enjoying the same benefits that our clients enjoyed during the stay unlike if I went to that event as staff.

I had to prepare for the event. It wasn't going to start that same day that I arrived in Manila but I had to ya know... dress to impress. Hahaha.

So this was what I wore. It was raining really hard and I heard there was a typhoon but it didn't stop me from wearing this cute little dress. I really like to look sweet and feminine.
Who doesn't, anyway? Hahaha.

And this was me getting bored, doing nothing inside the plane. I was alone so I had no one to talk to but I met this cute guy the moment the plane landed. He helped me with my stuff but I think I didn't hear his name right. Hahaha. I should wear hearing aids next time.

I think this is all for now.
Hmmm... I will be showing some more about what happened when I arrived in my next posts so see yah!

Lotsah love,

Milk Teas and More

I may not have told you before but aside from coffee, milk tea has a special place in my heart. It started years back when this Taiwanese sister-in-faith of my father visited our place. She gave me sachets of Lipton Milk Tea. I was hesitant to try it at first because I didn't like tea. Any tea- yellow, green, black... You name it and I hate it. Haha.

However, after drinking Lipton's milk tea, I started to look at tea differently. I said it wasn't that bad after all and that tea tasted better with milk in it than the usual teas in bags you had to dip in hot water.

These days, many milk tea stores have opened like:

And mind you, they're not your usual cups of tea. Nowadays, they come in cold versions- some blended and iced. They come sealed for that easy-to-carry and sophisticated look and these tea shops usually give you large black straws so you could eat up all those "balls". Hahaha. What I mean are those "pearls" or fruit-flavored gummies at the buttom.

Anyway, we really had a tough week and so we decided to drink milk tea at Cholabite while looking at the people exercising along The Esplanade. The view was nice and just outside the tea shop, we saw lots of parents with their youngsters.

They had an amenity for kids, the Crazy Karts. It was pretty convenient.
After jogging at The Esplanade, one could bring their kids with them and spend more quality time without having to go to malls for their kids to have fun.

I forgot their names but I think mine was a "Strawberry Oreo" something while Janine's was a "Lychee" something. And hey! It was actually my first time to eat a fruit-flavored pearl or ball, whichever way you call it. Hahaha.

And this is nothing. Hahaha. 

Anyway, I really had a lot of fun that day though the kids were really driving me crazy because of the noise they were making. But the place was great!

Hope you enjoyed!

Stop Comparing and Move Ahead

It's been a whirlwind trying to figure out what I wanted to do in life and the things that I've been doing now. I just feel so uneasy, so unsure. I don't know what's really missing but I'm sure I'm gonna find out soon.

I pretty much wanted to do two (2) things:
1. go to Law School [Yes, I really do. It frustrates me. Haha]

You can read this article to understand my story about going to law school:
2. work for a company that allowed me to wear colorful dresses and outfits once in a while [Yes. Like high heels, colorful tank tops and blazers. Name it and I wanna wear it!]

Perhaps, after having heard the things I had just said, you'd think I'm crazy.
But really? I'm not. It took me a couple of years to finally realize that that's all I wanna be. Marriage would then set in later. Hahaha.

I just know what I want and I want either of those 2 things first and then pursue the other.
However, much as I'd like to do number 1, I can't.

I can't due to some personal reasons, which-- if I reveal them here-- would make the other person involved seem like a villain in my heroic life.

Thus, I share to you this simple inspirational passage by Daniell Koepke:

"Stop comparing where you're at with where everyone else is. It doesn't move you farther ahead, improve your situation or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey. A path that's right for someone else won't necessarily be a path that's right for you. And that's okay. Your journey isn't right or wrong, or good or bad.It's just different. Your life isn't meant to look like someone else's because you aren't like anyone else. You're a person all your own with a unique set of goals, obstacles, dreams and needs. So stop comparing and start living. You may not have ended up where you intended to go. But trust, that for once, you have ended up where you needed to be. Trust that you are in the right place at the right time. Trust that your life is enough. Trust that you are enough."

Have a nice day! :)

Ready to Partey at Club Zyron's

Hello, there! It's been such a looooong time since my last post. Things have gotten a little busy and I couldn't rid my mind of work. Hahaha.

Anyway, my cousin gave me tickets to this new party-getaway in Iloilo. It's Club Zyron's or Zyron's Club, however you wanna call it.
Anyway, the place got its name from the owner's dog. I heard he really loved dogs.
Zyron must've been his favorite...

I forgot to take a picture of the entrance. For you to get in, you need to pass by the dog's mouth... Haha. It'll look like you have been devoured by a huge wolf. The entrance's pretty interesting though. The huge stone, dog-structure is really something.

The drinks are very affordable and the food is great! The place is pretty spacious and the lights are spectacular. You should check it out.
