My Dream Car

It’s very easy to get a car loan these days. You just need roughly around Php 60,000 for initial downpayment and it’s all set. It even includes insurance coverage already. Monthly installment will be anywhere between Php 11,000 – 20,000, depends on the car model of course. No wonder traffic around the Metro gets worst everyday as more and more people afford to buy new cars. Can’t blame them. For most people, driving their own car is still the most convenient and quickest way to travel.

I’d like to have my own car too! I have a large family so my dream car is a midsized SUV or a Minivan that can carry 7-8 people (Toyota or Honda). It should be white in color with sweet rear lights, has a compartment that’s large enough to accommodate bags and other things, it should be fuel efficient, should have the necessary safety equipment, heavy duty and lastly, I should be able to afford its price.

The X Factor Australia 2014 Top 7 Live Performance by Marlisa Punzalan

14 year old Marlisa Punzalan sings “Try” by Pink on The X Factor Australia 2014 Top 7 live performance show on Sunday, September 21.

Wow! I love this performance. This is by far my favorite! Everything is so on point! Her hair, clothes, make-up, accessories, gestures (I like how she slightly tapped her right foot at the beginning) and attitude! She looks soo beautiful! Can’t believe she’s only 14! And of course, her voice never fails to deliver. I just love everything about this performance. Thank you Foo for choosing a good song – Try by Pink. And Ronan Keating always so proud of her! Good job Marlisa! You’re only gonna get better and better each week! Hope you win this season!

3 Things I am Grateful For

Do you realize how powerful your thoughts and words are?

2 years ago, I’ve been constantly whining over my life, how it was too boring and routinary and comfortable. I wanted to experience something dramatic to have a more interesting and exciting life. I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and look out for more challenges. I wanted a drama, this Universe conspired and made it happen. 2013-2014 surely is the worst and most uncomfortable and challenging and dramatic year for me. I’ve never felt so down and depressed and lost.

I want you guys to be more careful with your thoughts, wishes and words. Never ever wish for a drama!

Anyway, here are the 3 things I am most grateful for today:

1. Grateful for my fast internet connection. Internet became my escape. It’s so nice that I can watch a lot of youtube tutorials, from make up to cooking to making loom bands to playing Bass guitar! I know nothing about bass guitar, so while browsing online, I saw this video and instantly it caught my interest! Got inspired by this young lady who learned to play bass by just watching youtube videos:

Mad skills right there! She didn’t even know how to read chords, she’s just playing it by ear. So cool. I know i know, it might be too late and ambitious to learn playing bass but who knows. HAHA. If I get enough money and time and right amount of passion, I might buy a Fender bass guitar and learn to play it.

2. Grateful for friends who have shown support in any way they can – from childhood friends, gradeschool/high school/college classmtes, officemates, neighbors, churchmates to blogfriends, I will never ever forget your kindness guys!

3. Grateful for the support of my family and relatives. I feel that I am so much closer now to them than I had been in the past. Thank you and I love you. Even if there’s a lot of pain now, everything would be all right someday.

What are the things you’re most grateful for?

My current favorite website – Spotify!

My current favorite website – Spotify! Thank you! I can now delete hundreds (maybe even thousands) of MP3s in my hard drive! Yesss that means more space, so hopefully, my laptop will load a lot faster now.

Spotify is basically an internet radio. You can create your own playlist and play it anytime, anywhere as long as there’s internet connection on your laptop, tablet or smart phone!

Just like Facebook, Spotify emphasizes sharing. It allows you to follow your friends and favorite artists to see what they’re listening to. You will also receive a notification when the people you follow add music to their playlists. So fun!

They have free and premium (no advertisements) accounts. Sign up and enjoy!

Happily Ever After


photo from weddingbella

A lot of my friends are planning to get married/engaged this year! WHYY?? Hhaha.

Because she knows how much I enjoy beading, one girl friend, graciously asked me to create a personalized lavender and silver wedding cord to be used on her wedding this November. I haven’t started yet, but as soon as I have all the materials ready, I’ll have it done right away.

There’s one guy friend who probably thought I was a jeweler. Friend, I don’t have any idea about the price of engagement rings and gold wedding rings. HAHA. But I’m guessing they’re expensive. Don’t worry, I’ll ask, and if you need creative planning to help you execute your romantic proposal, I’m just a text away!

Another friend who used to be adamant about getting married is finally taking the plunge! I feel so much joy for the two of you as you join your lives in marriage! Love you guys!

And another guy friend who’s seriously considering of getting married right away (in 3 months time), after having told the girl about his feelings just recently. I am appalled!!! But if you feel in your heart that she’s the ONE, go for it!

Early congratulations guys! Wish you all a lifetime of wonderful memories!
