Reunion at the Graveyard

November 21, 2017

Reading the title feels like a title of a book or a chapter of a fiction story, I guess this is just my hangover to all the series I binge-watched during my 9-days’ vacation leave I took during Halloween season.  I’m in for a travel but you see, my friends say they are broke, one say’s she’ll not travel, unless it’s free //shakes head in disagreement//

Anyway, I know this is random but I decided to write this down since my mind is full of random story plots; I need to release some creative juices. I don’t have time (yet) to go back to writing full time, I wish I could. So, I decided to write few happenings during my mini-vacation.

I had a terrible cough during those time, hindering me to eat things sweet and even go outside since the weather is not cooperating, it rains during afternoons and dawn tends to be so cold. It was a perfect weather to watch all those pending series, from animes, movies, Asian and Western series, I also played a lot with my dog and my little sister, hang-out with co-adulting friends but one highlight on my mini-vacation is my senior high school class reunion at the graveyard.

SOMETHING HAS CHANGE: Happy New Year, Self!

November 17, 2017

Fourth quarter, almost end of the year already, I can’t believe that 2017 is almost at the finish line. I’m amazed by how I managed to survive (ongoing) this year away from parents and it’s my personal new year again! Ha! Hence this lengthy, wordy, cheesy post.

Adulting age, quarter life. When I was twenty, I said a lot to myself that I will be like/have this and that at this age. Some I managed to achieve but some was a fucking stroke of reality, no matter how much I tried, so close but it wasn’t easy. Life ain’t easy, bitch. It slapped me hard, knocked me out cold. There was even a time I feel anxious about everything and depress about the situation I was before. I wouldn’t be writing this if I stop in that phase, right?

IS LIVING A BRIGHTER LIFE POSSIBLE?

October 23, 2017

In this fast-paced world wherein there’s full of difficulties, sometimes you can’t help but ask if living a brighter life possible. As a millennial, struggling in adulting, I would always ask myself what the future would be when raising myself today is a great struggle especially when it comes to finances.

Last Wednesday, October 18, 2017, Sun Life Financial Philippines organized the Live Brighter Forum at Cebu Parklane Hotel. It was a worthwhile evening as I got to know Sun Life’s history, which it started around 1865 and has survived two world wars. They have been the top insurance company for 6 years. It is really one of the oldest and largest life insurance company in the world. The company has been in the Philippines for strong 120 years. They also shared their values, mission to help their clients achieve financial security and their financial advocacy to help people. Continue Reading…

Adulting Gear: Liquid Leap Active by Acer

October 8, 2017

I didn’t intend to post a review on any gadgets or whatever because it’s not my cup of tea, not unless they are geeky gadgets for gaming and stuff that prolly be posted on vi-geeky.com.

Last October 2, 2017, I got to attend TECHnomy Forum that tackles about Technology and Economics brought by Acer Philippines and Microsoft Philippines. They also introduced to us their latest gaming rig, the Predator Triton 700 which you can read on my geek blog.

As a token, we were given a Liquid Leap Active by Acer which is a fitness band with a bit of smartwatch functionality. As an adult currently struggling in adult, I believe that the most important thing to watch is not my savings or my career but health.

The problem here is I don’t like wearing any accessories at all. I’m lowkey because I’m a bit careless. I wore a 20-something karat ring but I lost it while swimming, I can’t sleep wearing earing. The last time I wore a watch was when I was in the third grade, I always forget that I am wearing a wristwatch and ended up soaking wet. This time I might consider being extra careful because I decided to wear this Liquid Leap Active fitness band by Acer.

Technology’s Role in Economics

October 4, 2017

Technology plays a vital role right now in our fast-paced world. I remember during our class on Economics, my Professor said that technological advancement and economic growth are related. Just take a look at Japan right now.

Technology adoption and transformation play a vital role in boosting the competitiveness of local business and industries, specifically the burgeoning MSME (Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises sector. This is the clear message of Acer Philippines’ TECHonomy Forum.

Acer Philippines and Microsoft Philippines brought TECHonomy to Cebu last Monday for its second stop after a successful launch Manila recently.

Olango Island: Appreciating Marine Life on a Rainy Weather

September 26, 2017

I thought I wouldn’t enjoy yesterday because of the weather. It was raining. It has been raining for almost a week already, causing floods all over Cebu. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate this kind of weather, as a matter of fact, I love it, I wouldn’t use AC or the electric fan too much and I could sleep peacefully and comfortably during the day as I work at night. But if you have a planned trip which feels better if the weather is fine and sunny, you just wish that doing the sun dance is freaking effective but I WAS TOTALLY WRONG, rain did not change what’s going on under the sea, and the sea is even calm and warm. Rain or shine life goes on underwater.

Yesterday, I experienced few first time moments. One is riding a motor boat knowing that the weather is not good, I would usually backed out because yes, I am chicken and I don’t know how to swim despite after taking swimming lessons during Red Cross Youth days. Two, snorkeling. I haven’t use a snorkel in my life and I am glad I found out how to use it on my own; of course I’m wearing a life vest because swimming is not life.

Living Away From Home So Far

September 19, 2017

It’s been more than a year since I started living away from home, away from family, away from love ones and most especially away from my comfort zone.

Technically, I live with my brother but I feel like I am living alone due to our work schedules. I hardly see him on our rented place. We buy our own food, supplies and stuff. We don’t rely on each other that much but I do care about him. We send messages on facebook messenger from time to time. We do go out and eat sometimes.

Sometimes, I still think if living away was a good decision. I still feel anxious all the time. Most of us when were kids dreamed about having our own place when we turn adults. As for me, I just want to live in our house forever. A certain internet meme, sums up my feels, it’s about an adult asking to live back to their house, begging to be a dishwasher for life and escape the reality of working, paying bills and such, it was really hilarious, it hit me to the core.

Living away was never in my plan, it sometimes crosses my mind but I would immediately hide it away because living with family is really comfortable even if we don’t have all resources. I have my family who would do chores for me, cheer me up when I’m down, including my pets. Everything changes when you live away from home. They say, one sign of being independent is living away from home. I always thought I’m independent enough even if I live with family. I pay my college tuition before, isn’t that independent enough?

BEST MONEY SAVING TIPS: Adulting Tips

June 10, 2017

According to statistics, only 4 out of 10 Filipinos have savings. One reason is most Filipinos are not aware how banks works or they just don’t know how to save.

Adulting is hard. Really hard. I realized it when I decided to live in Cebu alone (not really, I’m with my brother but technically due to work schedules, we rarely meet) From eating, cooking, commuting, doing laundry, cleaning all by yourself, the hardest part is the budgeting. But to tell you honestly, budgeting is the most fun for me. I get to manage my own money unlike before, whenever I ran out of allowance I could just easily ask my Mom or Dad to give me even if I’m already a working young adult. Such shameless days.
