Photo Diary: Singapore

Late last year, I celebrated my 33rd birthday in Singapore visiting one of my favorite people and seeing Taylor Swift on her 1989 World Tour. It wasn’t my first time but there were still tons of places on my list back then that I didn’t get to see. This time around, we tried to squeeze in as many things we…

May 8th

Today we celebrate my dad’s 57th birthday. My mom would’ve been 58. My dad asked me to invite his brothers and sister to lunch today a couple of days ago. But with the fight and my cousin’s badminton tournament going on, we ended up celebrating tonight for dinner. I love it when family comes over. We eat simple, good food….

Touchy Feely

Not too long ago, I posted on Facebook that I wanted a white iPhone 4 or the new iPod Touch for my birthday. It was part wish and part declaration—and I knew I was going to get it one way or another. A few weeks ago, my friend told me she was selling gadgets for a lot less than retail…

Dinner with my Girlfriends

When I turned 16, I had a party at my house. My mom cooked food and had them lined up on a long table in these fancy-looking chafing dishes. All my friends came and we ended up walking to the park right before everyone left. This became some sort of tradition since. I’d celebrate my birthday every year with the…

Thanks, Mikkomix!

My friend Mikko from Alaska has always been an enabler. She gave me a domain on my birthday and paintedcloud.com was born. When that expired, she hosted me under her domain that changed names over time. Whenever I’d want to order something online, she’d offer to get it for me and then I’d pay her when she’d come home to…

A Wish List Is In Order

So even if I’m already done shopping (I think I need to tell this to myself everyday so it sticks), there’s no reason why I can’t make a wish list. Right? (: I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of making lists. It doesn’t even matter that most of the things on my wish list are stuff I actually buy…

A Birthday Treat Too Early

Got a head start at the Forever 21 sale this Friday. Here’s my humble haul all P2800 of it. What a bargain! We were only 3 people when it started and I didn’t know where to go first—I was literally going around in circles. I kept coming and going back to some sections, deciding if I really wanted that top…
