motivation, where are you?

Been feeling crappy the past couple of days, so I've been out of the loop lately. I think I'm all right now and will try to update this thing more. Looking forward to a relaxing week ahead, and hoping I won't have to worry about professional and personal deadlines at least for now.

It was quite an eventful long weekend for me. One, my sister came back from her 5-month stay in France. She brought home a few stuff from her trips around Europe, like chocolate and cheese for the whole family and this lovely mask for me. She only stayed here for four days and left yesterday for INSEAD's Singapore campus. She's already halfway through her MBA, so yay for her!

Next was Mother's Day. My boyfriend and I tried to recreate my mom's carrot cake recipe to give to his mom. I thought we did a really bad job at first, but after we took it out of the fridge, it looked so much better. Convi's mom said it was "the most perfect carrot cake" she's ever had! She's even asking for the recipe, but my mom would like to keep it a family secret. Hee.

And then, yesterday! It was a historical day for the Philippines with her first automated elections! It was my first time to vote too, so it was very exciting. Voted first thing in the morning, and was in awe as I was feeding my ballot into the machine. Ooooh. Soon, we're going to have a new set of leaders, and all we can do now is pray that they don't eff it up.


  1. Hi!
    Thank you so much for your sweet comment! :) The pictures on your blog are as so great and your hair is amazing. I'm currently growing mine out.

    I wonder if you're pure Filipino cause you look quite exotic. :)

    It was my first time to vote too. How was your precinct? Magulo? Exciting time for the country right now.
