Musts in Seoul (Part 1 of 2)

When I travel with family or friends, I am not so fuzzy about the itinerary. I just have very few things that I want to do, to see and to eat, and then I leave the rest with them, I’ll just tag along with them and do whatever they have planned for the trip. There…

2019…

Yes, you’ve read it right, I’m writing about the year that was… I couldn’t help but reminisce the recent year when we all lived a normal life, a life that we got so accustomed to that we sometimes, unknowingly, take for granted, a life that we thought so ordinary, thought that we could always take…

My Georgia Travelogue :) (Last Part) and some quick updates (:

Hello friends! It’s been ages since I last posted something here! I promised to share a fourth and last part of my Georgia Travelogue in my July 2019 post, but it’s already April 2020! I hope you are all doing well and safe wherever you may be. Many things have happened since my last post….

40, surprise me! :)

I used to be a planner, but through the years, I’ve become less of it and have found the beauty and joy in not planning too much and just going with the flow. For special occasions, my parents and I, we usually just eat out, have coffee afterwards, and that’s it. I’m not a party…

Baby Kaeleb’s 1st birthday :)

Last Saturday, we went to Abra to spend some time with our family and attend Baby Kaeleb’s 1st birthday celebration last Monday. It was held a day before my birthday. Allow me to honour my brother and sister for pulling off an anime-themed party for Kaeleb, (they both love anime), it was a fun and…

God’s will + God’s perfect timing = God’s best

More than 4 years ago, after 10 attempts to get a promotion in a span of around 2 years, I finally got it in March 2015. That’s when I met Chris Stephens, the General Counsel (GC) of ADB, since December 2012. In all those unsuccessful applications, I didn’t feel discouraged because I know from experience…

In the Pink

The earliest citations of ‘in the pink’ are from the 16th century and, at that time, the meaning was ‘the very pinnacle of something’, but not necessarily limited to health.  I actually feel that I am on my way to the peak of my life. Life gets better and better every single year. I thank…

{Another} one for the books

I had the most wonderful time last week in a place I have never imagined to see and experience in my lifetime, to say the least. This photo was taken the morning after our Tbilisi event has concluded. I’m so grateful that everything went well, every single experience was new to me, and there’s so…

Summer Special (Last Part)

When I travel, I usually pack my clothes on the day of departure because I didn’t want my clothes to crumple (too much). I think this is okay for short trips, but not for 2 or 3 week trip. I tried to do that for my 3-week Europe trip, and it was not good, it’s…

Summer Special (Part 3)

Big. Enormous. Gigantic. Elaborate. Intricate. Beyond lavish. These are just some descriptions I have for Grand Palace. It is very true to its name, grand is actually an understatement. I’ve traveled quite a bit and have seen quite a lot but it still blows my mind each time I see such elaborate, intricate, gigantic edifice…
