Just Do Good No Matter What

I know this is not new anymore but it's really a slap to the face when it happened to me. Indeed it's true that I shouldn't have expected something in return if I'm nice to someone because we'll never know if they would also the same way as we are doing for them. In spite of that, I hope and pray to God that He would guide me to continue doing good to others and no to think of the bad thing that the person had done to me. I pray that I would move on and release this negativity that I am feeling right now. I know that everything happens for a reason. Amen...

Taal Vista Hotel


Before I went abroad, I used to visit Tagaytay a little often and went to different places there. I remember the time when I when there and passed by Taal Vista Hotel. Well I didn't spend my night there but I just went there to visit the hotel because it's on of the oldest in Tagaytay. I just stayed there for a few hours to have some drink. I love the weather in Tagaytay specially during -ber months because it is cold and windy there. 


Of course, I took some photos with the hotel's background. I what I really enjoyed there was walking outside the hotel with the Mount Taal's view while having a drink.



And the at the evening, we try other restaurant just to check their food and still enjoy the weather. I forgot the name of the restaurant that I visited but we ordered Paella there. I loved their Paella and I can remember we almost finished it. 



We also ate balot there. There was this vendor who go around the restaurant to sell balot. I love to eat balot on a cold weather.

I THINK I SHOULD START READING AGAIN

Post: http://www.pinkyjhaney.com/2020/03/i-think-i-should-start-reading-again.html


So I would hope I would be able to read them while I have enough time. It’s the perfect chance, and we might not ever get this much time again just to read and arm ourselves with information and entertainment in this way. If you think it’s about time and you’ve got a pile of books to get through, but your glasses have been gathering dust or have bent out of shape, there are plenty of sites like Eyeglasses.com to guarantee you have the opportunity to make time for yourself at home!


Good Old Times with Friends

One of the things I miss if there is no COVID-19 is hanging out with my friends. It's just so ironic because I was very busy doing a lot of important things when there was no pandemic and now that I have a lot of free times, I cannot meet my friends because it's not going to be that safe. I'm just so sad because of this kind of situation.

I always hang out with my friends when I didn't have work yet. We do food tripping and some drinking. But that stopped when I got busy doing my RTW business and until I went abroad. When I went back to the Philippines, I became busy with a lot of stuff  but somehow whenever I have free time I get to meet my close friend for some drinking, food tripping and of course telling stories about random stuff.


I just want to share these old photos during those times when I had a lot of time with friends. Here, we were just having drinks in our house. Our life was so simple then because we had no permanent jobs yet. We just had some drinks and listened to music.



We also played with our dog - Butchie. Sad to say, he's already in heaven. My friends like him so much because he knows some tricks and he's such a sweet doggie.


We also played with my makeups and pretended like we were models. Hahaha!

Summer in Subic

This is another throwback wherein I went to Subic. This is how I missed going to the beach as well as going out with friends. It's been 3 months already and the world is still dealing with the pandemic COVID-19. It's just so sad because there were plans and dreams that had to stopped as of the moment. I am really hoping that this would end soon. I was really excited that the year 2020 would be the year where I will be achieving one of my dreams. 😢 Well, I will never stop praying that this will end soon. 

Anyways, for now I will be sharing my throwback pictures when I went to the beach in Subic. This was a long time ago so I don't remember the name of the resort but I can say that the place was nice and I would love to go back there.


The sand there was smooth and it was clean so I enjoyed swimming there.


And I loved watching as the sun sets. It's one of the things I love doing when I am at the beach. It's so serene and calm to just sit down, relax and watch the sun sets.

Celebrating My Birthday Amidst the Lockdown

So I guess this will be one of my most memorable birthdays because I get to celebrate it amidst the pandemic COVID-19. Well, I always have simple birthday celebrations but this time I can't invite my friends, relatives or neighbors. I just simply celebrated it at home with my family and had a simple lunch and blowing of candle.
Me blowing the candle with out fur baby.

I am very thankful that I have 2 very thoughtful nieces.

The one who I am celebrating my birthday with.


And the other one who did not forget my birthday and made an effort to make a birthday card for me.

I cooked baked tahong and this is only my second time making this. 


And we just ordered food from Amber's, Lydia's lechon and 







I wish that this pandemic will be over soon and everyone can go back to their normal lives.  It sucks staying at home for 3 straight months so I just made the best out of it just not to waste these times that I have stayed at home.

Finding ways to be healthier and happier is going to benefit you now and in the long run. You’ll find it easier to get through your days and that a lot of your stress subsides.

There are a few tips you can apply that will help improve your health and happiness and ensure that you are enjoying life instead of just getting by. It won’t be long before you’re seeing positive results and feeling energized and excited about achieving your goals. Get started today so that you can begin to set self-destructive behaviors and habits aside and focus on what’s going to put you on the right track to good health and success.

Spend Time in Nature

Nature is one way to improve your health and happiness. Being outside in the fresh air and taking in all the beautiful sights around you will instantly put you in a good frame of mind. Viewing and spending time in nature has been known to reduce anger, anxiety, and stress. There are many ways to enjoy the great outdoors, such as camping, hiking, and gardening. Get outside to clear your mind and receive your daily dose of vitamin D.

Treat Yourself

Another tip for improving your health and happiness is to treat yourself every so often. You can’t be afraid to indulge in self-care and other activities that will make you feel more joyful. Be kind to yourself and pamper yourself so that you can relax and reset. For instance, you can have a spa day at home, purchase new jewelry online from a shop such as Whiteflash, or go out shopping and revamp your wardrobe. Anyone of these actions will put a smile on your face and are excellent ways to reward yourself for all your hard work.

Surround Yourself with Positive People

It’s also in your best interest to surround yourself with positive people if you want improved health and happiness. Negativity will drag you down and make you feel miserable. Therefore, be honest about who is and isn’t good for you in your life and make more time for those who are uplifting and encouraging. You’ll find that you aren’t so anxious and that you have a better self-image for making this change. It’ll also be beneficial to have a reliable support team of people you can turn to when you need advice or are feeling down.

Make Sleep A Priority

Getting good sleep is essential if you want to improve your health and be happier overall. Lack of rest and sleep will take a toll on your mental and physical well-being and likely cause you to be moody. You may take actions or say words you regret when you’re not well-rested. Configure your room for optimal sleep by setting it to a cool temperature, investing in a comfortable mattress, and decorating with calming and soothing colors. Find a relaxing bedtime routine that helps slow your thoughts like meditating, listening to music, or drinking tea instead of playing on your electronics. You’ll wake up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle your daily responsibilities this way.
