Reconnecting with Mimi

Soooo I re-listened to Mariah Carey’s entire discography (because whyyyy notttt?!), and I can definitively say that these four are my favorite albums (in order):

Lisbon

When I look back on our Euro trip last year, I find myself in Lisbon. I don’t know why. We didn’t tour much. We didn’t see much. And it was our second-to-last stop, so we were pretty exhausted at that point. We chose to just chill and take it slow. But over the years I…

Officially

๐ŸŒˆ I knew they had always known, but the other night I nervously, officially came out to my family. My mom said it wasnโ€™t a big deal because โ€œBuhay mo naman โ€˜yan. Basta masaya ka at walang natatapakang tao.โ€

Barcelona

BARCELONA was not part of our original itinerary either. Because of visa issues, we could not go further into the Balkans so we had to look for alternatives. From Dubrovnik, the cheapest flights we found were to Barcelona.

Travel is a Luxury.

When I say “Ang dami kong time” when I post a new video, I lie. The truth is: ๐“๐ก๐ข๐ฌ ๐ช๐ฎ๐š๐ซ๐š๐ง๐ญ๐ข๐ง๐ž ๐ก๐š๐ฌ ๐›๐ž๐ž๐ง ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐›๐ฎ๐ฌ๐ข๐ž๐ฌ๐ญ ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ฆ๐จ๐ฌ๐ญ ๐ฌ๐ญ๐ซ๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ๐Ÿ๐ฎ๐ฅ ๐ฉ๐ž๐ซ๐ข๐จ๐ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐ฆ๐ฒ ๐ฅ๐ข๐Ÿ๐ž. Yes, despite not being able to travel at all. Yes, despite being cooped up at home the entire time.

Dachau

This statue of an unknown prisoner stands in a quiet corner inside the Dachau Concentration Camp. Nazi Germany’s first concentration camp, it was established in 1933, shortly after Hitler became chancellor. Although not the biggest, it was said to be the “most important” because it served as the prototype for other concentration camps throughout Europe.…

Pak na Pak na Flan

Meron akong suking seller ng leche flan dito sa building. Super sarap. Pero last time, nag-iba yung lasa. Nagbago yata ng supplier. Eh bilang atribida ako, I told her, โ€œBeshie! Mas masarap yung dati.โ€ Yknow, because feedback is important.

Samaritan

Back when I was a college freshman, I decided to move out of the boarding house and instead commute from Batangas all the way to QC for the second term. To make it to my first class, I had to catch the 3am bus. Our house was far from the terminal so I had to…
