Owning a Kindle Changed my Bookish Life

It was four years ago when I was given my first kindle and I fell completely in love with reading for the hundredth time. I was a third-year college student at that time, barely living off with my not so huge allowance so I can't really buy new books every time I finish reading something. And t…

Life Lately: September Blues

September is coming to an end like all the other months did, and again I'm gonna say this, "WHERE DID THE MONTH GO???". I can still remember vividly how I just posted my "Things to look forward to in September" and now, the month is in its last week? How? HOW? Seriously, why…

Exploring Burgos: The Kapurpurawan Rock Formation

The Kapurpurawan Rock Formation is the most stunning place I've seen in all of our Byaheng Ilocos adventures. It is a one-of-a-kind art created by nature herself. The stunning work-of-art is located on the rocky coast of Burgos, Ilocos Norte. It is known for its creamy white and streamlined li…

My Menstrual Cup Experience

I grew up in a conservative family. When I first got my period, my mom introduced me to sanitary napkins. She taught me how to use them and when to take them off and dispose of them when they are already full. At a young age, I wasn't aware that there were other mediums being used by other gir…

The day started out to be rai…

What the Real World has taught me so far

It's been almost two years since I've graduated and left school for good. My five and a half years of stay in uni were some of the best years of my life. It was ten times better than grade school and high school combined. Those years were the final oven that pressured and cooked me to who I…

An Open Letter to Someone I Once Knew

First of all, I just wanted to say that I have been in conflict with myself before writing these thoughts down. I am having an argument with myself on whether to write this letter in an insulted, angered demeanor or in a calm, sensitive, more positive-thinking manner. I choose the latter and I will…

Pagudpud | The Patapat Viaduct

After taking a dip at the famous Blue Lagoon Beach at Hannah's Beach Resort, the girls and I changed and packed up to explore Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte more. Next stop for the day was the Patapat Viaduct.


The Patapat bridge is elevated 31 meters above the sea level. It is a concrete coastal bridge…

Six things I'm looking forward to this September

Now, there are those who posts about their goals for the month, about their list of happy things, about why they love September (because start of fall and all and I wish I could experience that but there are only 2 seasons in the PH so...), and here I am thinking of a blog post good enough to start…
