I haven’t really done this in a while but I’m happy to have gone outside and looked up – it felt so calming looking at the sky with all it’s twinkling little lights along with the cool breeze and silence. The earth has really been showing off lately. She must have been having her own version of a breather.

Speaking of a breather, it’s been a while since I’ve had a proper day off work since the beginning of the year. It has been a challenge though stopping myself from checking work emails but so far, I’m making progress. And, tiktok has been keeping me occupied haha. I’ve never felt more tita seeing these jugets and their entertaining videos but I still gave in and made some entries lol. Times like these, I think tiktok has given me less stress compared to other social media platforms. Plus, it’s my new form of exercise.

I recently had a change of heart. Char! Before, I used to crush on meztizos and the macho ones hahahah but my attraction has now shifted to Koreans! Blame it to K-dramas and K-pop, I am now officially shipping (naaaaks!) two: Jungkook from BTS and actor Park Seo Jun! Haaang cucuuuuuuute! I love Fight for my way super kilig! ❤️❤️

I’ve randomly cut my hair and got a fringe again. I don’t know why I keep doing this, knowing I’ll regret it again later on hahaha.

I know we’re on lockdown and stuff but this has made me realise how our lifestyle didn’t really change lol. Prior to all of this, our life has always been work – home – errands and repeat. Every now and then there’s the sporadic travel but nothing really major had to change. I guess this has been to our advantage but I still think of some who struggle with this. I do try to keep in touch but I’m still hopeful that everything will eventually go back to normal.

Nakatambay lang ako dito sa sofa, killing time until I feel sleepy so I just played youtube videos on the telly. Suddenly, this lockdown is making me feel nostalgic so I decided to watch random videos from my account and I happen to click through this:

I made this video in 2017 for our wedding, with the aim of being practical para di na magpa pre-nup shoot and all. Bawas effort and gastos. But now that I’m watching this, di ko maiwasang mapangiti at maisip na buti nalang, inexperience ko yang mga ganap na yan.

Growing up, I didn’t have the luxury of travelling for leisure. Apart from mahal siya, I also live up north which meant napakalayo. Idagdag pa yung only child, only girl aketch so naturally, I wouldn’t be allowed. The only consolation I had was that school and even when I started working, both would send me here and there for trainings or seminars so in a way, nakapag lakwatsa din naman ako. When I moved abroad for work, I took this as an opportunity na mag scrung pag may time and money and it just made me so happy and relaxed. I promised myself na from this point forward, I will spend money on experiences and making memories, kebs na muna sa mga material things.

Buti nalang, ginawa ko yang mga yan.

Now that we’re on lockdown, di ko po maiwasang magisip isip. And looking at these videos, or even going through my albums, alam mo yung feeling na parang uy self, this was a wise move. Di naman ako genius, mayaman or whatever pero yung mga pinagka gastusan kong lakwatsa andami kong nasheshare na lessons to my friends or even random people na nagri-reach out to ask. Andami rin naming napagkekwentuhan ng asawa ko kasi andaming bloopers and fail minsan mapapatanong ka nalang kung ano bang pumasok sa isip mo nung mga panahong yun; It also helped me gain perspective especially about different cultures and lifestyle. I also get to know myself better, and up to which level I can allow myself to be uncomfortable. Ito siguro yung magiging isa sa mga kayamanan ko, yung I allowed myself to see some parts of the world and actually enjoy it. Bonus na yung I get to capture it on pictures/videos. Follow me on youtube charrr!

Hopefully matapos na tong virus na to nang makabalik na ulit sa pageexplore. Of course, I won’t expect that it will be the same for everyone but do give it a try though. Travel, or if di pa kaya, try a new restaurant; Watch a movie or concert, try a new hobby or learn something new. Kahit ano basta maiba lang and para mabreak dim yung monotony. Life is so short, let’s all live it well.

18:45 | Lo-fi hits playing in the background

Found my new favourite spot to chill, do some work, and contemplate about the the madness that is happening to the whole world. When does this end? Will it ever end?
