The Glad Game Begins

You look at other people and wonder what emotional wars they’ve won or lost. Wonder whether that pesky, er, perky office mate ever know what it’s like to watch her family go hungry. You look at this jolly, old fellow and try to find worry in his eyes. Sitting next to a stranger on a…

You Had a Bad Day

What do you do when things get rough? When LIFE gets tough. When every decision is a big risk. When you simply had a bad day. No. You don’t think of positive things. You can’t, ’cause you’re too blinded by realities to escape to your happy place right away. Problems won’t go away just because…

How to Dream Big While Keeping Yourself Grounded

I am probably one of millions of people in their 20s whose life revolves around a corporate job and salary; family and home bills; and friends and mini reunions. It’s confusing, right?

I know I have the best groups of friends who happen to be awesome travel buddies as well, but hey, my folks are pretty cool, too! 🙂 For instance, we went to Baguio City to celebrate my Mom’s birthday: They look good, don’t they? And…

A Series of Firsts

My childhood was spent traipsing around riverbanks and splashing in and out of springs. I never learned to swim but I am quite used to bodies of water, well, as long as it’s just knee-deep. 😉 The wonders of the sea and sandy beaches, however, were foreign concepts that I have only read in books.…

To Blog or Not to Blog?

I guess by now we all know the answer to that. 🙂 It’s 2012 and everybody has long since been inured to the basics of blogging. Everybody but me, that is. This is my very first blog entry on my very first blog…er, spot? Hurray! I’m not really sure why I’m doing this. God knows…
