Life doesn't always go the way you planned it -- Big Hero 6

Finding myself so stuck in a rut, emotional rut specifically, I went out with good company to see Baymax in the wonderful animation Big Hero 6. Well I still don't know where the number 6 came from.. err maybe I wasn't paying enough attention to the details. It's a good movie and I love the location of the scene, San Fransokyo, which is a very obvious merge of San Francisco and Tokyo, so very, very relatable. 

I think the movie is relatable because first, I'm going to Japan next month to spend my holidays there. LOL. Provided I will be granted a tourist Visa, then I will be flying solo to explore Tokyo and then Kyoto (hopefully, if I won't ran out of money). I thought I'm going to do this in 2016, but here I am. Life is so unexpected. I was supposed to meet a friend there so I booked a flight. But an unexpected event happened, turns out I will be spending the holidays by myself. I think that's cool still, but I'm kinda afraid.. afraid to get lost. Lost in translation? I'm pushing through anyway. It's time to woman up :)

Other Things To Do in Boracay

posted by Chan Zubiaga on ,


Boracay is the most famous beach in the Philippines, and is one of the best in the world for sure. Its pristine powdery white sand is definitely world-class. Honestly, for me, it's like no other.

Move over from banana boating, snorkelling and helmet diving, the usual stuff. I have here a list of new and fun things to do in Boracay :) with photos, of course, to make it more amusing for you. This was from last year, and you may notice I am fatter than usual, as I really have gained weight back then, haha!

1. Stare at the beach. Just stare at it for a few minutes and let yourself be filled with beauty.

2. Make a sand castle (now this is something new! haha!)

Not so long ago when the travel bug bit me, and now I finally decided to share my travel experiences here on my blog too not just all beauty and fashion. Below are some of my favorite travel quotes and some thoughts about them :) I hope you'll like it.

Just go. But of course, if the circumstances allow it, you know, time and resources (money). No one's stopping you, is there? In my case, aside from my strict aunt, there's no one else. This is the single girl's blessing I must say.

Everything, including travel, must begin with a single step. Otherwise, you go nowhere, you'll be just dragged by things and circumstances you currently find yourself in, to places you don't necessarily want.

I'm not sure, but I think travel is something very natural for us, and something that we need, you know, like drinking water, eating, etc.

What this quote above means for me,  is that in going into places you haven't been before, you broaden your perspectives, you gain knowledge and understanding (having new eyes), you learn about those places and at the same time, you learn to love your own (your country). I say the latter because that is what I realized, having been to South Korea as an example. It made me appreciate more of what we have here in the Philippines :)

Lastly, be open to adventure. If you are like me who likes to plan everything ahead of time, don't be mad if things don't go the way you planned it. Don't be too tough on yourself and allow some margin for error. Enjoy every bit of it. As for me, I enjoy everything, starting from the planning phase, all the way through to completion. It's the journey and not so much the 'destination'.

Winter Beauty Stash

The cooler days are here in the Philippines, and in some countries, it won't be too long for autumn and winter to come. What's in your beauty kit now?

Me, since I still want to keep the natural look, I like to have the mascara to enhance and curve my eyelashes, and I think it's a great time to make use of eyeliner to give more oomph to the shape of the eyes, a lip balm to keep the lips hydrated and a hand and body moisturizer. It's also a good time to wear perfume, in my opinion, especially if you're the type who uses heavier perfumes, the cooler months handle it better.
