Thank you for Visiting!


It’s been a while since I’ve checked my all-time stats. The image above was snipped on January 1, 2021 and I was amazed to see how many countries I have traveled through this blog since 2013. I feel surprised and humble that you all have decided to check out this blog and follow me even…

My 5 Guilty Pleasure Foods


I am fairly new to the “Guilty Pleasure” food world since I had just got out of a life-long relationship with diets. For a long while, I didn’t allow myself to be indulged in aesthetically pleasing foods. Instead, I obsessed over nutrition label and would stay away with any foods that either had chemical preservatives,…

What is Father’s Day?


What is Father’s Day? What is this day about? Honestly, to me, it’s just another ordinary Sunday. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced a proper Father’s Day even with my step-father. I guess we just never been the traditional type but then what’s true definition of traditional? In the past 15 years or so, even when…

Major Changes


I was going to wait until next month to do this project but I couldn’t wait since I already have a theme picked out and everything. All there’s left now is to update the pages.

Wrapping up 2014: Very Inspiring Blogger Award


I would like to thank Prakash Hegade for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. It’s my first time to be nominated for this award and this would make it my second award nomination for this blog just this year alone. That is amazing! I would like to thank everybody for visiting this site as well…

Wow, I’m flattered and honored. Earlier this month, my other blog, Hidden Stars, was nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by SHRUTIGOPINATH and then yesterday, this blog, My Simple Life, was nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by Vik Tory Arch. Thank you all so much. You’re the reason which I continue to blog. Here are…

Life’s Tiny Rambles


Okay, I guess you know by now that I like to talk about me. Well, who doesn’t? Talking about ourselves is the best subject we know. Well, today, I can because the daily prompt is to just write for 10 minutes. Anyway, yesterday was a weird day. I went to school and while in class,…

5 things I wish to change about me


There are always a million things we want to change about our lives. So to list five is a difficult choice. But will crossing out those five things make our lives easier? Slightly more enjoyable? It depends, everyone is different. The five things I want to change in my life are: 1. I wish I was…

TGIF: I am achy and exhausted!


I think if you look at me now, I would probably look like the picture on the left. Not to complain but my back aches, so do my knees, legs, and heels. My arms don’t hurt but my fingers were full of pain about two hours ago. Now, I just have the usual wrist pain…

A voice in my head


(Yawn) I am so tired today. At least I get to skip my second class at mom’s request. 🙂 She doesn’t want to wait at the airport. So I am rushing over right after my first class to pick her up. Yay me! Anyway, today’s daily prompt is a good one. It read: Your blog…

Late Night Thoughts


I am a bit scared right now. Outside my bedroom window parked three cop cars. The last time there were this many cop cars outside my home was a few years ago when mom and I had just moved into our current home. Our neighbor had called the cops one night after they heard shots fired. It…

Sticking to the Present


I woke up this morning, feeling confident and energized. I turned on my computer and took a look at the daily prompt. You’ve been granted the power to predict the future! The catch — each time you use your power, it costs you one day (as in, you’ll live one day less). How would you use…

My Own Show


I hate picking favorites of anything. I guess because I don’t like hurting people’s feelings. But secretly, I enjoy it. I just don’t like pick in front of people. But sometimes, I don’t really have favorites. Like shows and movies, if you’d ask me to pick a favorite, well that’s one question I cannot answer.…
