I just turned 26. I don’t want to talk about it. Joke. The truth is I can’t stop talking about it but since I feel like thoughts are cluttered here in my personal space, I needed to organize and formalize a new space for my unconventional fashion + travel stories. Of course there’ll be some little things about beauty and wellness in it! What am … Continue reading Hello FUN!
My love affair with Belle de Jour Planner started in 2009 when I was looking for a planner that will suit my lifestyle as a young professional who was so in need of a beautiful space to write all my thoughts!

Okay, I had so much fun at Canon Night as Canon Philippines celebrated 15 wonderful and successful years in the Philippines!

When we were kids, whenever we go to Manila, we have to leave at midnight and wait for the bus since going to Manila is a 4 to 5 hour bus ride. I got used to it because my dad used to leave and arrive at midnight every weekend and when I was in college and needs to attend to my SK responsibilities, I used … Continue reading Bus to Quezon
Note to everyone: this is a bit mushy and very personal blog entry, please bare with me, I know this is too girly. Haha. “Every scar, pimple and wrinkle in your body is a sign of a life well-lived,” uttered by my ever cheerful mom who always tries to be positive despite the difficulties.
