Update

Hi everyone!!! Today has been so tiring and I have no drafts to post so I’ll just have a little update and announcement.

If you’ve read my “plans this week” post then you probably know that I’m attending a youth camp and the camp will start tomorrow!! 

I asked my friend already to post my drafts so that I could complete my goal for this month which is to blog everyday– sadly I won’t be able to interact with you guys.

I am so excited for the youth camp! I know I’ll learn a lot lot of lessons and I just can’t wait! 

See you when I come back– probably Monday. I promise to catch up with your posts as I love reading other people’s experiences in life. 

Have a lovely time!! ❤

Meet My Pets!!! 

After a long time of thinking whether to have a post about my pets or not, I finally decided to introduce them to you! I always tell in facts that I have 5 cats (the black one got missing so basically it’s 4) and 1 dog. But let’s change it– because there are new babies in our family so in total, we have 7 cats and a dog!! 

Let’s start with my first cat. 

  • Muning

She was a stray cat that my dad found and he gave it to me. I still don’t know how to name a cat before and I don’t think I should name a cat so in the end, she was called Muning. 

Honestly, Muning is so intelligent. Whenever I call her she responses quickly and I sooo love that about her.

These are her pictures growing up:

She’s quite filthy this time.
She got her eye hurt this time and I was furious. She likes playing outside and I don’t know why she got hurt.
Soo cute, right?
This is her now and recently she gave birth to three kittens– that makes the total of my cats 7!
  • CROOKSHANKS & WEASLEY

Okay, they have only few pictures when they’re not together so I’ll post the pictures of them together. These are my ginger cats and swear they are so sweet!! They’re both guys though and I’m glad they won’t bear a child– 7 cats are enough, please! Ahah.

Crookshanks is so playful and he’s much sweeter than Weasley before. But when we treated his eyes because it had some sort of infection, he got scared and he’s not too sweet anymore like before. Crookshanks has no tail (I don’t know if I should call it bobtail lol) and he has the red neck accessory. 

Weasley is waaay more playful than Crookshanks!! Fingers crossed he is!! He’s also sweet too. Weasley has a tail and he wears the green neck accessory. 

And yes, I got their names from Harry Potter. :p

I can’t tell who’s Crookshanks or Weasley. This was taken a long time ago and they don’t have their tails in this picture.

The one who’s sitting weirdly is Crookshanks. Sooo cute, right?!
Crookshanks having a lovely time with an egg.
Weasley got scared one time and it only made him cuter.

  • GRACIA 

The last grown up cat is Gracia but sadly I don’t have any available picture of her. Like Muning, she’s also a stray cat and one time we just realise that she’s living in the house already. I’ll try to take a picture of her soon– she’s not comfortable with people and runs away that’s why it’s hard.

Here are some random pictures of Muning, Crookshanks and Weasley:

Muning and… Luna– the one that got missing. 😦

Muning’s kittens are still tiny and they can’t even walk yet. I don’t want to take a picture of them because Muning is so protective ahah she might get angry at me.

  • Bob

And for the last one, Bob! He is our dog and he’s very intelligent and loyal. Whenever I walk outside he’s always with me and whenever we come home at night Bob is always there waiting for us.

This is the only available picture of Bob in my phone. Everytime I try to take a picture of him he always move and the picture becomes blurry so..

Thank you so much for reading this and I really hope you’re having a lovely day! 

Let me know in the comments– are you a cat or a dog person or a lover of both? And what kind of pets do you have at home? I’d love to know!

Pray For The World

I can’t sleep. I totally can’t. 

But I just can’t empty my mind. So full of thoughts and it’s just so depressing. 

First, Manchester. We all knew what happened. 

And now, there’s an invasion in Marawi, Philippines. According to some statements, buildings are being burned right now, gun shootings everywhere and they kill innocent people. It’s just so saddening that all of this has to happen. 

And the saddest part? 

Some people blame Muslims. 

Filipinos are fighting due to their political views. 

And please. Can everyone just stop and be one? Just for now– in a time like this. We all need everyone. 

Terrorism has no religion. No religion is to be blamed for this. 

And Filipinos, blue will always be above red. There’s no way our flag will be reversed. That can’t happen. 

I’m honestly so depressed right now– just to think what’s happening in the world. I can’t even sleep in my own room because it feels unsafe.

I want to feel safe again. 

It doesn’t matter where you are right now. Please be safe. Please. I want you to be safe. And please have a moment with God and pray. 

I’m logging off now. See you.

5 months ago I made my 2017 goals and wow, I just reached my goals for this blog! The only thing I haven’t reached yet is to have a total of atleast 15,000 hits– I’m not even in 10k yet but I’m pretty sure I’ll reach this too!

Who was your first crush? 

  • My first crush was my childhood playmate and I rarely see him now. And he’s not my crush anymore. Ahah.

If money was no object? What would you get? 

  • Plane tickets, a camera, a laptop and tons of books! That would sum up my life. 

Do you have a happy place? If so, where is it? 

  • I feel so happy in my room and I feel the most comfortable in my room too, so that would be my happy place.

    T.R Noble asked:

    Tink the Belle asked:

      Maggie asked:
      Why did you start blogging? 

      • I started blogging because I was inspired by Zoella. At first, I really don’t know what blogging is. I was never interested but then I read Zoë’s book which is Girl Online and I was so inspired to do a blog. Later on, I visited Zoë’s blog and I became more inspired. I decided to do one myself as I want to have a room or a personal space in the online world.

      What do you think is your best quality?

      • I don’t exactly know what you mean by quality but if it’s about my personality, I’d say my positivity and if about my appearance, I’d say my eyes. I really love my eyes.

      What are a few things you’re really good at? 

      • Whenever I’m telling stories to my friends or any happenings in my life, I always don’t tell them one part. And then I tell them when I think it’s the right time and then they just say, boom, plot twist. And it’s really hilarious. It’s like I’m making my life a whole story with plotholes and twists. And I am good at convincing people. 

      What’s the first thing you notice when you meet someone new? 

      • I love my eyes, and I absolutely love other people’s eyes as well. Sometimes eyes say everything, sometimes it speaks nothing. That’s the first thing I notice whenever I meet someone new– and if their eyes are beautiful, geez. It’s so amazing– and one of my bad habits is staring at someone’s eyes. Aha I’m sorry.

      Tabi Bee asked:

      What was the most recent blog you followed and looked at properly, and why? 

      • The blog that I have looked at properly is Jen Kyla although her blog’s not the last one I followed. I visited her blog because 1) she’s my cousin 2) she’s new and 3) you all should visit her blog. You will enjoy it! 

      If you could live with five items, what would they be? 

      • Comfortable clothes, The Bible (as I need the gospel to strengthen me up), a laptop and a camera for my blogging aaand a journal. 

        Thoughts in Life asked:

        What is your favourite part of the day and why? 

        • My favourite part of the day is afternoon– especially when the sun is setting already. As much as I love sunrise, I can’t be up too early. 

        Starring Pamela asked:

        What superhero power would you love to have and how would you use it to people? (I’m assuming you’d be a hero because you’re nice and sweet!) 

        • Ah thank you so much, Pamela! It’s quite a hard one since I’m not really into superheroes but one thing I have in my mind right now is to remember everything I’ve seen. In some ways, it can help other people too– and I also thought of oblivion. No one wants to be forgotten, right? This honestly can help and I can be a good lawyer with this and help the ones who are right and in need! (Aha!) 

        Lee asked:

        Unicorn, mermaids or fairies? 

        If you could create your own planet, what would you name it? 

        • Meri Planet. Ahaha it’s lame I know but Meri is quite good. 

        Lillies, daisies or tulips? 

        • Lillies all the way! But I also like daisies. 

        Life of Angela asked:

        What do you do to improve your mood when you’re in a bad mood? 

        • I always think of positive thoughts. I find look for one corner to sit on and I think positively. It seriously uplifts my mood. 

        What weird talent do you have? 

        • I can do a little gymnastics! (Lol) My body is not flexible when dancing but I can reach my head using both feet at the same time. – weird, super weird. I’ve had this skill since I was a little kid and was surprised I can still do it. Still..it’s weird. 

        Do you prefer to watch movies in the home theater or in the comfort of your own home? 

        • I prefer to watch movies at our own home!! It’s quite pricey when we watch in a theater because we’ll have to pay for the transportation, food and if we got nosy, we’ll buy clothes and other stuff at the mall so it’s better at home!

        Amelia in Hull asked:
        What’s your favourite country you’ve ever visited and why? 

        • It’s so sad to think about this but I have never travelled to another country. As much as I want to travel, it’s so expensive and I gotta earn my own money first. 

        What was the worst decision you’ve ever made in your life and why? 

        • I don’t consider any worst decision as of now but when I was a kid, I lied to my mum about swimming and when I got home, she was furious at me she wouldn’t even talk to me. Swimming without my mum knowing is the worst decision I consider.

        Elsie L.M.C asked:

        Do you feel as if your blog has helped you in any way? 

        • It has helped me a lot– seriously! And I’m so thankful for everyone who supports or talks to me in this blogging world. 

        Do you have any summer plans? 

        • We had– and we did some! It’s not summer anymore in our country so…

        What goes through your mind when you read the first post you published in your blog? 

        • Somewhat cringey and somehow what? A year ago I made this post and I’ve never thought it would actually make a difference in my life. 

        Hayley of Luna asked:

        Who is your idol and why? 

        • God is my idol and why? Because He made everything as is and has great plans for all of us!! 

        Thank you so much for reading and I hope you’re having a lovely day! Huge thanks to everyone who has asked questions because I absolutely enjoyed it and you made me happy! 


        What is your current follower goal as of now and how are you feeling today? ❤

        Dear Future Self (Collab With Mental Catastrophe)

        Hello hello hello everyone! It’s Monday and it’s time for another collab with Mental Catastrophe also known as Elline Andreana, Andy and Ana! You all should go check out her blog because she’s one of my best friends and she’s lovely!!!! 

        So for today’s collab, Elline and I decided to make a letter to our future selves. And trust me we’re really running out of collab ideas so please if you have any ideas please suggest it in the comments below!

        Dear Future Self, 

        Are you okay right now? Are you happy with what you’re doing? You might be a lawyer or a flight attendant now, but always remember to be happy and continue to walk with God in everything you do. 

        This letter came from your 16 year old self who’s currently confused on course to take in college. But this girl hopes that you have chosen the right path and that you are happy and contented right now. 

        Always seek for peace and justice, if you became a lawyer. Don’t be blinded by the powerful people around you for they won’t help. They will only push you to darkness and no, please always seek for the light.

        And if you’re a flight attendant, be nice to everyone you meet in the plane. Always give them smiles and surround them with your positivity. I suppose you’ve travelled to a lot of countries now and you’ve met a lot of people. 

        Dreams don’t happen unless you do. No matter how high the stars are, reach them but remember to not push someone down behind. 

        What about my best friends in this age? Do you still talk to them? I hope you do. I will be disappointed if you don’t. Remember that they have helped you in your high school days and when you’re feeling anxious, they are always there to lift you up. 

        I also hope you’re still in contact with everyone in the family. Shame on you if you don’t. They are the ones who helped you to become you. Do not ever forget them and whether you’re in a court or in a plane today, contact them and always tell them that you love them so so much.

        And the blog that I have started last December 2015? Is it still alive and kicking? Do you still publish posts about your whereabouts and any other stuff that’s happening to you? I loved writing in that blog. It has become a huge part of my teenage life. I hope you still blog and interact with other bloggers.

        Always walk with God and never leave His side. I believe in you. You got this. God will help you all throughout.

        Sending love and positivity, 

        From your 16 year old self. 

        Thank you so much for reading this! It will be fun to go back when I become a little bit older. 

        What are some of your messages to your future self? Have you made a blog post about your future self too?

        Happy Monday everyone! I know I should’ve posted this yesterday but I was really busy yesterday I haven’t had the time to post this. But let’s start! 

        This week will be a busy one. I hope all the pain that I’m feeling will eventually go away. (Because of the braces and the ankle sprain.) But anyways, I want to make this week positive and productive as it’s the last full week of May and…June is approaching! 

        I can’t believe June is fast approaching. I’m not ready to go to school yet! Ah but whatever.. 

        Okay. So here are some of plans this week. I will come back and edit this post from day to day and see what I have accomplished. 

        Went to church.

        ⭕ Prepare today’s collaboration with Elline

        ✔ Ask how my mum’s sister is doing because she’s been rushed to the hospital earlier this day. I hope she’s okay. 

        ✔ Start binge watching Remember: War of Son which is a Korean drama.

        ⭕ Journal about the plans this week.

        ⭕ Post the Q and A. And hey, you can still ask questions here

        ⭕ Day 2 of youth camp. 

        That’s it! I still don’t know what are the activities in the youth camp but I am so glad that my parents allowed me to join. I am finally joining a community that serves God! I am more than happy! ❤

        I hope the youth camp turns out good and I really hope nothing bad happens. I am so excited and nervous at the same time. 

        But yes, the youth camp will be held Friday-Sunday so I might not be interacting with you all but I asked my friend to post my drafts. 

        Thank you so much for reading and have a happy week, everyone!
