2016 in Review

2016 SUCKED BALLS.

There, I said it. The last quarter of the year in particular have been rough for many reasons that I’d rather not go through, but if you’ve been wondering why this blog has been quiet, that’s pretty much why.

But it’s okay (mostly). Life is full of ups and downs, and this isn’t the worst low I’ve had. I’m not feeling particularly optimistic right now, but someday I will be again. Until then, I’ll probably keep to myself a little bit longer, pop in and out of this space, and focus on things that keep me sane in this mad world. Read more…

Returning to WoW

It’s been four months since I renewed my World of Warcraft subscription. Being absent for six years meant I had a lot to catch up on, and indeed the game has changed a lot while I was gone. For the better, I believe.

What I Wore: Birthday Looks

Quick fashion post! By the time this publishes, I’ll be in Philly on important business. So excited to be back in the city. I’m gonna eat all the food and do all the shopping!

I honestly wish I can take all the awesome things about every place I’ve lived in and put them all in once place. It’s gonna be a utopia of awesome malls from Makati, the gorgeous mountains of Vegas, the infinite career opportunities of Philly, the invigorating beaches of Subic, and the beautiful scenery of Lehigh Valley.
