New Layout

September 16, 2015
I was too lazy to tell stories. I thought a new blog layout is all I needed.

When was the last time I updated this blog? Some days ago. I have been soooo lazy. I cannot even string words. It was ironic when blogger friends think that I am like a “faucet” with continuous update and stories to share. 
I felt less motivated to blog, to share stories or to even cover events. I feel I need something to excite  me. So I thought I would finally update my blog template. 
It’s been long overdue. I have been checking different templates and designs. I picked a few that I wanted but nothing gave me the sudden leap that I needed. Until I found this. I wanted something unique, simple and still speaks my personality. Sometimes I wish I have the talent at graphics, web design or photography. Everytime I needed something done for my website, blog or brand, I have to do everything by myself. I felt like a warrior. 
 Most of the blogs now are using minimalist templates. Black and white. Instagram feed at the bottom. I thought I would sway away from the usual. 
It is not easy to say goodbye to my colorful and chic template. I remember my very first template was pink. My blog entries then were all text and words. I was very conservative in using pictures. I thought blog was all about words and how you play with it; but blog has a different game now and pictures are truly worth a thousand words. This template will showcase more pictures and scenes. 

What do you guys think? 

Feature picture was taken in Red Planet Hotel. I used my Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro to update the design of the template. 🙂
