Life Lately Vol. 3

When I told the universe I'm ready for the great stuff, awesomeness started pouring in. I just hope I don't jinx this, but it does feel like the entire universe is working in my favor.

Don't get it wrong though. My life is not exactly all rainbows and butterflies as I would have loved to imagine. Shit happens. But you can only either sulk about that or move on and give shit the middle finger it deserves. And I chose to do the latter.

Anyway, I revisited my blog today and realized I only have one post for November (big deal haha), when in fact, I got tons of these "I am sooooo blogging this" moments. But Instagram took the light away.

I'm blogging now because the incoming days are going to be blog-worthy (assuming I can give time to write about it). So before I get overwhelmed and end up not writing about anything at all, I might as well do a blatant gloating because that's what bloggers are supposed to do.

Here's what I've been up to lately:

1. Went to the City of Smiles
I was invited to the launching of the new Nokia 6.1 Plus and 5.1 plus. Along with other tech bloggers, Josef of Davao Geek Hub and Robert of DugomPinoy, we flew to Bacolod City just in time for the Masskara Festival month. Work and leisure in one? Why not?

The Ruins
Morning dip at Seda Hotel. Thanks Nokia for inviting me here.
2. Went to Secdea with the fam
For a much needed rest, relaxation, and family bonding.
Can you believe there are three generations in this photo?
Jan and Rhett. 
We stayed at the Family villa. Find Jan and Rhett.
Just outside our villa in Secdea
3. Went to Dahican with Jan's officemates
Because you know, Dahican now is just like Samal to us. We decide today, we'd be there the next day. Haha.
Destino Dahican. Really love this place.
Dahican beach, always a favorite.

4. Won a consolation prize from Sodexo GC Regalo's Best Christmas Gift Idea blogging contest
I haven't actually received anything from them yet, but I'm bragging about it just because.

5. Went to Clark Pampanga
With other bloggers, Ria, Julie, and Clau, Philippine Airlines invited and flew us to Clark for their Year End Party.

It was a fun-filled night! Sure, it was awesome to meet bloggers from all over the Philippines and make new friends. But the highlight of the night was winning a round trip flight to an international destination! Yay!

6. Won Big Bad Wolf's #MyBookHaulBBWDavao contest
I didn't even know there was an ongoing contest. So winning Php 700 worth of gift certificate is certainly a surprise for me. I can snag two or three books with that. Not bad. Woot!

7. Nominated for PLDT-SMART Davao Blogger of the year
Chosen among 70-90 competitive bloggers, being a finalist already made me a winner. I wish every finalist the best. But I won't be a hypocrite here because I wished harder to win. Haha. And oh, you might want to read the shiznit they say about me:

That's it!

Maybe it's the horoscope. Maybe it's karma. Or maybe it's the law of attraction. Whatever it is, I'm honestly a little scared with all the good things happening lately.  Because, well, life has a funny way of sneaking up and scaring the shit out of you when you least expect it. But then, our two middle fingers were created for a reason: to prove these bitches wrong.

So remember, when shit happens, keep your head high and your middle finger higher. Have a nice day everyone!


  1. Wow! So lucky maam! I love reading your blog. God bless!

  2. Galing! Swerte naman! Continue being a good person and aapaw ang blessings sayo.

    1. Bumabalik lang din siguro sa akin yung mga binabato ko. Haha :)

  3. You have done good. The universe will always find a way to reciprocate your efforts. Keep it up!
