It’s hard to believe April is done, isn’t it? Another month wrapped in 2021. Soon, May will be over and then June, July…and before anyone can say another word, it would be time once again to put out those pumpkins and sitting by the door anticipating trick or treaters.

#AtoZChallenge 2019 Reflection and Break


Another April gone, another A to Z Challenge done.  Overall, I am happy with my theme chosen for this year’s challenge – Wordless Photo. One photo every day for each letter of the alphabet. I chose this theme to fit my busy schedule and I thought I was wise to do so. Ever since my…

A Quick Reflection on 2014


It’s hard to believe that at this time last year, I was sitting in front of my computer, bored out of my mind and resorted to watch House Hunters on Hulu. My mom had already left for California with my then-boss and his family, leaving me alone at home for the new year. This blog had…

Liebster Award: First Nomination!


First of all, I just want to say thank you Artfullyadelie for nominating me for the Liebster Award. Aww, I have to blush a little. It is currently the second achievement I’ve gotten since I started blogging. At this point, I should probably put up an achievement page. Last year, I was nominated for the…

My Journey to Blogging


This picture is so right, blogging is a journey.  After more than a year and 50 posts later, I think I should dedicate this single post to tell about my journey to blogging. It all started with an idea… One day, I was in the university’s coffee shop having lunch.  I noticed the guy sitting…
