Why self-love has never been taught in schools?

Loving yourself wholly and genuinely is the greatest gift you could give to your entirety. That’s why I asked myself, why our professors and teachers didn’t teach us this vital material? Until I realized that maybe they didn’t, because…


I’ve started my December by attending in a workshop titled, ‘Unleash the Speaker within You’ organized by Elevate Manila. We had a compact class for one day which asked every attendee to prepare a 3-5-minute speech to be delivered in the afternoon session.
If I only have more time to create and edit my content, I know my message and delivery will be better. Hence, I am still happy since I’ve learned so much from the workshop.

I fell in love with Eiffel!


When we talk about Paris, France, the ever beautiful Eiffel Tower is being associated automatically. Aside from becoming one of the country’s landmarks, it has been a romantic symbol that complements with the image of Paris as the City of Love.

A Glimpse of the Banaue Rice Terraces

Finally, I’ve ticked off one of my childhood bucket list!


Philippine landmarks are well known even before the Digital Era. Through books during grade school, tourist spots— like Mayon Volcano, Chocolate Hills, Hundred Islands, and Banaue Rice Terraces—were desired destinations of every kid, including me.

21 things every 21-year-old individual should know

Twenty one: Too old to be a kid, yet too young to be an adult.

Whenever I get new understanding from experiences, observations, and other people’s stories–no matter where I am or what I do–I make sure to take note of it. Basically, it took me a few months to accomplish this list, as I want to complete it the way it is and in accordance with my life’s pace.  I want it to cover the changes that happened to my perspectives and views when I became a 21-year-old individual.


I don’t force anyone to agree with me, but I believe you can still learn a thing or two by reading the following. 😉
