Hail Hydra!

- December 14th, 2014 -

It’s the Christmas season again and everyone’s on their toes trying to find the perfect gift. One that’s usable, non-cliche, and will be appreciated by the receiver. Price aside, it’s already a challenge enough finding that perfect gift. Harder if this gift giving routine has been going on for years and about 3x a year: birthday, anniversary, Christmas!

Here’s my gift to myself and to my boyfriend:

1 hand on the rail, mobile shopping on the other

- November 21st, 2014 -

Hey! I could finally have some alone time with my laptop. Lately, I’ve been waking up at 6am everyday even if I have no work/classes because the carpenter arrives at 7am.

Next time I’ll be sharing the before and after transformation when I finally purchase the dining chairs, study chair, water dispenser, and a/c unit. Apparently, I need a 2hp split-type unit to cool my place. Any suggestions on the brand? The Samsung premium inverter looks really classy btw. I’m such a loyal consumer.

Fashion wasn’t as important to me as a good cut of raw salmon but I also want to look fashionable. College life is tough enough without having to be a probinsyana sticking out.

What’s In My Bag?

- October 6th, 2014 -


This bag has been with me for more than 3 years I think. I love how it can go from day to night. Plus it’s very roomy without the bulk! Today, I’m in the mood to share the contents of my go-to bag so here we go… Read the rest of this entry »
