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.
