Hi there, thanks for visiting my blog. It’s a really special day for me today, made so by the lovely Famela Marie who nominated me for my third Sunshine Blogger Award.
Ela is an aspiring writer, whose works I find fascinatingly insightful. I like the fact that they inspire me, to think creatively and divergently. To be positive, to dream, to create, to write.

Ela’s questions to me
1. What is your favorite song?
Mmmm…it’s been awhile since I’ve listened to any songs of my own volition. I seem to prefer instrumentals these days. The last song I remember vibing to was J. Coles’ Love Yourz, a song that inspired me to be grateful for what I have.
2. Have you ever been in the Philippines?
No, I’ve never set foot outside of the borders of my country yet. But I look forward to a time when I will explore this beautiful planet. The Philippines will certainly be in my iternirary of places to visit.
3. Cat or Dog?
4. What book inspired you the most?
Just Be Glad by Christian Larson.
This book isn’t long. Infact it’s quite short. But it packs a punch.
5. What book changed your perceptions about life?
Your Word is your Wand by Florence Scovel Scinn.
6. Thriller or Love story
Uhm…I can’t really say. I’m more of the fantastical type. But if I were to choose, I’d most likely go for a love story.
7. Dream place to visit.
Paris, France. From what I see in the media, I think France is a romantic place. I dream of seeing the aesthetic Architecture up close and personal. Sometimes I find myself imagining being below the Eiffel Tower, looking up at that looming man-made flower.
8. What are the things you love to do aside from writing?
Aside from writing, I love to read. I find it hard being away from a good book. Apart from reading, I also like spending time with friends and family, playing chess, taking walks in nature, learning new skills and meeting new people.
I’ve recently taken an interest in meditation and yoga, and I must say that I like the cool, calm and collected mindstate they leave me in.
9. What is your favorite coffee flavor?
I’m still a beginner so I prefer Mocha’s
10. Favorite movie?
No matter how many times I watch it, I’ll still be willing to watch Titanic.
11. What are the 3 things you have beside you when you sleep?
I like to use sleep as a tool to brainwash myself, so I like to keep my phone, together with my earhones so I can listen to postitive affirmations. I also keep a bottle of water by my bedside incase I get thirsty.
