SaabTV: A Day In The Life #RevitaliseCalm

Yay! Finally, I was able to shoot what a normal day looks like for me! Thanks to the team of Certified Calm for making this happen! I’m very proud to be the company’s official brand ambassador alongside Amanda Griffin-Jacob ☺️ Click here to read Certified Calm’s complete feature on me (and exactly what products I’m…

Sydney: Newtown

A few years ago, one of my best friends moved to Australia to further her studies. Nyko had been gone for months and I wanted to surprise her! The perfect opportunity came when Megan and Lauren talked about how they were going to Sydney in January 2016 for their cousin’s wedding. Nyko was based in…

Wear Your Feelings

On a random night in August 2015, Jim asked me to join him for dinner with our friend Ali Sangalang. I agreed to go because Ali always made us laugh with his witty one-liners when we’d see him at parties. Jim and Ali have been friends since the third grade. As a matter of fact…

What’s In My Bag?

The last time I did this was maybe 4 years ago. I’m sorry it took a while but here’s an up-to-date version, at last!   I always bring around my trusty gadgets (not in photo is my powerbank because I was charging it haha), my bullet journal, a wallet, my chosen lipstick-of-the-day, and a hand…

I’ve always been a pencil and paper kind of girl. I have a hundred notebooks with checklists and my desk is littered with different kinds of pencils (my favorite is a Pilot Opt 0.5 mechanical pencil I got from a Japan airport store). After 12 years of blogging, though, I’ve come to embrace technology and…

How I Decluttered with OLX

When I moved in with Jim after we got married, we had a lot of duplicate items like blenders, microwave ovens, and other household appliances. While it was admittedly tempting to keep everything because “sayang naman,” I am not a fan of impracticality. Since I read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art…

POP QUIZ: How I Learned To Save My Money

If you asked me 2 years ago what I knew about money, I would say I was pretty much like Rebecca Black’s awkward friend in her music video for Friday. I had an accountant who deposited my checks and reminded me when my taxes were due. All I had known was that my bank account…

Our Living Room Changes Everyday

A small space is no excuse for a messy room. I would say our 2-bedroom condo is perfect for a newlywed couple like us! But I admit, it does get challenging at times to find a place for everything. We both love clean, spacious surroundings and, very much like the characters on The Sims, our…
