Random Ramble: In bed with you.

large

When you’re lying in bed with your significant other and you find yourself reflecting on how rare and perfect your bond is, and how much bs you had to endure with people beforehand which thankfully lead you both to cross path. And now you’re just lying there in this state of tranquility and you realize “This is it! This is literally how I want to spend the rest of my days”…

Life Talk

Being a Go-Getter.

Go-getter? They’re known by many a monicker – the anti- wallflower, the social star, the life of the party — but the singular secret of confident individuals is their knock for setting themselves apart from the crowd.

large

Here are some life lessons to be the go-getting person you’ve always wanted to be.

  • SUNNY SIDE UP!

When dealing with people, try to stay on the positive side. No one likes a serial downer.

  • BATTLE THE CURRENT

Exercise thought before following fads. If you decide to go against trends, then, the more you’ll earn respect for sticking to your own opinions.

  • GO BEYOND THE OLD YOU

Constantly improve yourself. Always dare to go beyond. Step out of your comfort zone.

Life Update: Totally Random 3

Hello friends!

How’s it been since my last ramble? It’s summer. The sun’s out and vacation season lingers the air. Sweet, right? Well as for me, things escalated in the blink of an eye. I’ve been traveling back and forth to Baguio, four times for the past 2 months. Paolo and I just reached our first anniversary. 👏🏻💋 We celebrated it few days earlier and it was totally unexpected. His parents dropped by at the office and asked me if I wanted to go to Baguio. Of course, I said yes. (no second thoughts needed) Joining the Sabs means free fare (that’s 500php off) and food overload. 😂😂😂 But honestly, Pawi’s parents’ are the best. They accepted me wholeheartedly and treated me well. We had dinner at Dad’s Buffet before heading north. So going back, Pawi and I roamed around Baguio for a day. It was a different experience since we were used to always travel by car. Walking around town was more exciting and enjoyable. I absorbed Baguio from a different perspective. Also, we had lunch at The Coffe Library. I’ve been craving for some Vietnamese cuisines lately and this hole in the wall took an excellent job in recreating some of my favorite dishes like phở and nem rán. 👍🍜 The second time I went to Baguio was late March until early April. Since a lot has been happening at the office, my vacation was moved. I spent most of my time staying at the cafe. If you happen to visit Baguio, you should try to munch at Sessions Gallery Cafe. I am highly-recommend this place especially if you’re looking for a restaurant with good food and homey ambiance. During my third visit, Pawi and I just stayed at home. We binge watch throughout my 2-day stay and no regrets whatsoever. And now, I am currently on my fourth vacay. Again, work sched has been pretty messed up lately. Early last week, we were told that we will be working on the upcoming Holy Week. I already prepared myself for this situation. However, when Monday came, our Director decided to give us a long weekend since our training will be on it’s way. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciated what he did. It’s just that drastic changes like this stresses me out for unknown reason. So now, I have another 4 days to spend here.

Just like my first ramble, I have been active in watching movies and series lately. I’ve seen Beauty and the Best, John Wick: Chapter 2, Moana, Suicide Squad, The Matrix, Jumper, The Lake House, American Ultra and Constantine. I know some of the movies mentioned were old but it’s never too late to watch it, right? I’ve been obsessed with Keanu Reeves for a very long time so I decided to re-watch some of his film while working. To be honest, I work well when I watch something on the other monitor. Are you familiar with “Riverdale“? OMG! You should definitely check this new series. They’re on their 9th episode now for Season 1 and I would to say that it’s so freaking great. It’s a mixture of teen drama / mystery kind of series where all of the characters were based on Archie comics. To be honest, my original plasan was just to check out Cole Sprouse. He definitely Longbottomed big time since Zack and Cody days. He’s playing Jughead Jones III and he’s doing really great giving a hottie stigma to his character. Veronica Lodge is my favorite character by far. Her classy stance and bitchy attitude is a combo that I want for myself. hahaha. I am excited for Riverdale’s new episode. The plot thickens and it’s becoming more intense.

Currently, I am sitting on the canopy at Pawi’s work station. He’s meticulously building a new gunpla because he’s planning to showcase this on fair happening next month. I borrowed his laptop so I can work on a new article. So far, I am doing great scheduling some drafts and I am more productive this time compared to last month. Hopefully, I won’t jinx this one out and will continue to post a more substantial article. So let’s end this random post for now and will continue to chat with you next time. mwuuuahx

"What's in my" kind of post

What’s on my Phone? (Updated for 2017) *Android* Cherry Mobile Flare S4 Lite

Hello friends!

I am very much excited about today’s blog post because I will be sharing with you “what’s on my phone”. I’m currently using a Cherry Mobile Flare S4 Lite. It is an android phone originated from the Philippines. I tried having and iPhone before but I guess iOS doesn’t give me much of what I really need. This phone has been my go to phone since I lost my Xiaomi Red Mi 1s earlier last year. Let’s get right into this article and let me show you everything on my phone.

 

17904448_1371536999570555_2937150613520764788_n

This is my simple home screen. As you can tell, there not much of a riot here. I just have my essential apps randomly placed at the side of the screen. I have the shortcuts to dialer and sms plus my Facebook and Twitter is also part of my phone “necessities”. The middle button on the left is where you will find all of the applications inside my phone. The wallpaper and the theme were provided my C launcher. I decided to download C because the free themes that comes with this phone looks old and plain. Of course, I have my Facebook messenger as well because a lot of times my family and friends don’t text anymore. It saves them the credit because Wi-Fi is free. Last, we have my Instagram app. I am more into Instagram stories than Snapchat so whenever I am to share something interesting, everything is on this app. (The clock and temperature updated is provided by my launcher. I kept it that way because it’s handy)

If you swipe left after my home page, you will see folders that I created to organize the applications that I always use. I find this setup convenient since I will no longer have to dig inside my phone to look for the app that I need.

Everything is categorized according to use. I have one for music, photos, blogs and socials.

And here’s an overview of all the applications on my phone. I rarely check these pages since I have everything fixed on my home page folders. Some of these miscellaneous applications were pre-installed on the phone when I bought it. My applications differ from time to time depending on my mood. But most of the time, I try to keep it simple and neat like this one right here.

 

Hope you enjoyed my quick what’s in my phone article. xo

The Good Side of Red Wine

large.jpg

 

  • helps achieve healthier skin

Red wine is known as to have a rich antioxidant called resveratrol. It slows down the aging process. Also, it destroys free radicals and produces enzyme for cell regeneration.

  • keeping your sleep schedule on track.

It contains melatonin; a hormone that controls your sleeping cycle.

  • cuts the risk of cancer

Quercitin is an antioxidant found in red wine. It helps the consumer to avoid heart disease and lung cancer. And since red wine also has resveratrol, it prevents the development of cancer cells in the body by starving them from nourishing on a particular protein.

  • reduces the possibility of a cold. 

The abundance of flavanoid antioxidants can help generate immunity from illness.

  • lowers cholesterol

A glass a day can lower bad cholesterol called low-density lipoprotein.
