I'VE WATCHED: Minimalism 2015 Documentary

I personally like the minimalist style, as it looks clean and simple, which is why I took an interest in learning more about minimalism. I recently got to watch the documentary on Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things by The Minimalists. It contains many different interviews showcasing their perspectives in why they chose to pursue the minimalist lifestyle.

I'd like to share my thoughts and some takeaways I got from watching this documentary. I personally think that a documentary is successful and meaningful if it provokes thought and makes you ask yourself the right questions.

Cafe IF in BF Presidents Avenue

I'm always going to remember Cafe IF for many reasons. Some of the reasons would be that this was where I've bonded with good friends, where we held our Youth Fellowship meetings, and where I spent a considerable amount of alone time.

As this cafe is only around five minutes walk from my dad's clinic, I would frequently go there to just spend time alone on my laptop, with a book, or writing in a notebook while enjoying the smoothie/coffee I ordered. I find that the faux vines are quite soothing, and I like how the occasional kpop/acoustic songs just flow out of the speakers as if it were part of one's daily life soundtrack.

I was alone today, so I just had a kiwi smoothie. If I was with someone, usually we'd order their bingsu.

YOUTUBE FEATURE: Aimeezingdays

My sister vlogs! She vlogs mostly about her travels in Europe and US. This for her is her platform and avenue to document her travels so that she can share it with family and friends. I'm supportive of her and I help her in promoting it even if at first she was shy about it. Haha!

I'm not an avid youtube fan who watches and subscribes to many channels, but I do watch videos from time to time, or when my friends recommend me to watch a vlog. I don't even know much vloggers. But then I do find that making vlogs is a good way to document and to simply just have fun. It's also nice to look back at how travels went, especially the highlights.

Her vlog channel is named "Aimeezingdays" wherein she combined her name "Aimee", "amazing", and "days".

Do drop by and watch her videos! Here's her latest one when she went to Canterbury:

She is aimeezingdays for her Twitter, Instagram, and Gmail accounts. :-)

Of Dreams and Hobbies

My dad was cleaning one time and he brought out his old bowling trophies. I did not know that he was into bowling until he showed the trophies to me. Sometimes there are things about our parents that we don't really know about; it may be a certain hobby that they used to enjoy when they were younger, or a certain band they used to listen to everyday. Somehow it makes you feel like you can relate with them more in this way, because they were once your age and they had interests and hobbies.

He also found his old bowling ball and decided to take me to the bowling alley in SM Southmall! Please note that I am in no way a bowling expert of any sort; I've gone bowling with my high school friends a couple of times. But really, all I could remember was that the ball was so heavy, I was certain that the floor might crack with the way I threw it, and that my hand and forearm would hurt the next day.

It's a bright orange! I have love-hate relationship with orange. I think I will talk about it in a separate post.

Farmer's Orchard in BF Aguirre

My friend, Sher from Sher My Thoughts, and I were looking for a good place to eat lunch in BF Aguirre, so I asked her for her personal criteria. She came up with two: healthy and affordable. This was how we ended up in Farmer's Orchard, a cafe which serves fresh fruit juices together with light meals.

Cafe L'usine in BF Elizalde

I shall go ahead and say that I'm not really a huge fan of coffee. I mean, it's alright, but I don't need it in my system 24/7. Probably the first stores that would come to mind would be Starbucks and The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. But then after visiting L'usine, I was pleasantly surprised that there really is more to coffee. I just wanted to share mainly about my experience here.
