Bato, Catanduanes, Philippines
If I described Puraran Beach to be a very rough beach, Sakahon would be its total opposite.

Baras, Catanduanes, Philippines
It's the Holy Week! While everyone's at the beach or on the road, I'm here at home catching up on sleep, my shows, and my hobbies. I wouldn't have it any other way to be honest; I'm just glad I have a couple of days to myself. My family and I aren't the type to go with the crowd during holidays, so I'll just be here reminiscing about my days in Catanduanes!

Binurong Point is definitely my favorite scenic spot here in Catanduanes. I personally think that everyone who gets a chance to go to this island should go see this place.

Puraran, Baras, 4803 Catanduanes, Philippines
I don't think I wrote proper entries about my travels to Catanduanes. However I did explain it in my most recent one, Island Weekend, on why I often visit this place. I figured that I should sit down and internalize what this place really means to me, rather than talking about it non-specifically like what I did previously.

PHOTO DIARY: Almost Summer Time


This is how I know it's almost summer; it's when the Bougainvilleas start to bloom. Took a walk last weekend around my village and couldn't help but take photos of all the beautiful blooms around. There's no official announcement that it's summer time yet, but I do know it's coming soon.

Of Tonal Swatches and Foliage

I have to admit that I've been in a creative block lately when it comes to making things. I don't remember the last time I painted anything. Recently though, I was gifted with a new set of paints, which is the Winsor and Newton Watercolors set, which got me all excited to try out. Painting with watercolors is definitely one of my favorite things to do, and I realize I need to make more time for.

I'VE WATCHED: A Love So Beautiful (2017)

I've just recently finished A Love So Beautiful! I don't normally do detailed posts like these for a drama, but I really liked this one, and I stayed up until 11PM this week (despite having work the next day) to finish it, so it's worth sharing about on here. I won't deny it, but it has a cliche story line. You've probably encountered the same scenes in previous dramas you've watched. I also have to admit that I'm not really into high school plots, most especially if I know the actor/actress portraying the role is already in their mid-twenties in real life (although the characters here are still in their early twenties, so I reconsidered haha!). But then the show offers a light and fresh perspective around the daily things they encounter in life, allowing us to breeze through it together with them in the most enjoyable manner.

I want to share with you all my thoughts on this gem of a Chinese drama and why I like it so much.

Don't Be Too Lazy To

There are things that we tend to be lazy about or would rather put off for later, then forget about them entirely. Here are some that I thought of that would impact how we go about our day:
