How I Got My Multiple-Entry Japan Visa

How I Got My Multiple-Entry Japan Visa Tips

How I Got My Multiple-Entry Japan Visa

When I first visited Japan, I just knew I have a lot of reasons to go back - the minimalist culture, advanced technology, good food, and very considerate people. I completely understood how everyone fell in love with Japan.

I was over the moon when on my second application for tourist visa, I was granted a multiple-entry visa.

Mia the Movie: On Letting Go and Accepting New Love

Mia the Movie: On Letting Go and Accepting New Love 

Oftentimes we distract and destruct ourselves with old love, and push away the ones who are willing to save and love us. 

And that is my emo of the day  night after watching the movie screening of Mia last night at the Fisher Mall. 

Mia is a movie about a self-destructive alcoholic, Mia (Coleen Garcia), a doctor struggling to heal from the tragedy of her fiance's death, and Jay (Edgar Allan Guzman), who is a nerdy forester.

KanDuu: I Bought a Medical Insurance Online for Only Php 1,799 / Year


I Bought a Medical Insurance Online for Only Php 1,799 / Annual Premium 

I love the peace and quiet. And I m continuously aiming to live minimally, simply and more intentionally. 

This year, one of the goals is to make sure that I am prepared for whatever that would happen in the future - and I mean not just chasing dreams and reaching goals. I have to think of sudden death, or disability or being diagnosed with a critical illness.

Dear 2019



Dear 2019, 

This is not a year-end essay entry, or maybe it is. Somehow, I felt the need to drag myself into my room, open my laptop and type an entry for today's blog. I can still be a little sentimental and I want something to read back to with date stamped December 31, 2019.
