The Voice Season 12 on Star World

There were only rare times when I grabbed the mic and sang in front of a crowd small group. I would like to think I can sing. When I was a kid, I was a member of the Children's Choir. But Public Singing (is there such a thing?) is not just really my thing.

Travel: Davao Day 3: Getting to Samal Island from Davao City via Bus & Roro

If there is anything that your friends can say to get you get killed while on travel, it is for them to say the things that scares you the most. For me, it is anything that requires long boat ride.

Current Faves: Zen Zest Home & Aromatherapy Scents Collection

 Zen Zest Home & Aromatheraphy

Scents have such a powerful impact on my mood. The same way that I don't feel like myself when I forget to wear a perfume. 

I love walking into a spa, hotel and stores that have such good scents that set the right mood - whether it is for relaxing my mind, uplifting the heart of energizing the body. 

I love talking about scents and home scents in this blog. Recently, I got introduced to the Zen Zest Home & Aromatherapy Collection.

How She Creates Her Legacy #CreateLegacies

Everyday, I meet people who have an inspiring story to tell. Oftentimes, their stories move me, inspire me to be better, and/or challenge me. I don't really have someone I can call my idol or icon. Probably because there is no one single person I would trade my life with. 

It is funny that when people ask me who my favorite blogger is, I don't have a quick answer. For writers, I will be forever amazed with J.K Rowling. Her (and Harry Potter's) story will forever live. But if there is any skill or talent I would rather have - it is the skill to create interesting designs and artwork.
