Hey HK 2017!

I resolved to be more punctual this year.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I can’t believe I’m posting my greeting late. Haha! But believe me: I’ll put more effort in being a more punctual person this year. I spent new year in Hong Kong, watching some spectacular fireworks. How about you? Hope your New Year’s Eveย was just as good! (Unfortunately we can’t say the same for Ms. Mariah…

diy floriography cards

Hi everyone! Happy new year! I want to start the year off right –by giving thanks to the people around me and by spreading the love. What better way to do that than by sending cute personalized cards to people? Before I start with this super short tutorial, I just want to say sorry for…

five-minute word vomit

i’ve been planning gifts this holiday season, and it was a revelation. i found that there were only 16 people i loved enough to spend for. the rest of my ‘close’ friends, and everyone else who fit into some other social niche i can’t explicitly label in this blog –given this blog’s audience– do not…

i don’t hate indigenous peoples, but i never learned to love them either

2014 x Footnotes

Before I make a post bragging about the roast chicken I cooked (I did a lot of the prep, okay), and actually making my new year post, I’ll add in the last four highlights of my December 2014. And before I forget:ย THANK YOUย to everyone who made 2014 possible and wonderful. The air I breathe. My…

For the nine mornings before Christmas Eve, the religious devout (or just plain dedicated) attends mass before the crack of dawn. For some people it’s for the…

Life Update #2014x

I’ve been living the past few days in a haze of hesitantย lethargy. I don’t actually go to sleep every night planning to sleep over fifteen hours the next day, but that’s what happens. Curse the invention of naps.

Also technically an unscheduled holiday because #MarioPH came and ruined all of my plans. I have done nothing the whole day but sleep and maybe study. A little bit.

Vlog Progress

We have to understand that the progress of my vlog for Korea (vlog = video blog, to be uploaded in my Youtube channel (yes, I have one, only all of them are locked videos) and embedded here) is non-existent. Because my video making skills range from Windows Movie Maker to iMovie. :< I’ve begun something…
