aye aye capt'n!

31 Give up being shy. – Network with people.  Meet new people.  Ask questions.  Introduce yourself.
32 Give up worrying about what others think of you. – Unless you’re trying to make a great first impression (job interview, first date, etc.), don’t let the opinions of others stand in your way.  What they think and say about you isn’t important.  What is important is how you feel about yourself.
33 Give up trying to control everything. – Life is an unpredictable phenomenon.  No matter how good or bad things seem right now, we can never be 100% certain what will happen next.  So do you best with what’s in front of you and leave the rest to the powers above you.
34 Give up doing the same thing over and over again. – In order to grow, you must expand your horizons and break free of your comfort zone.  If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting.
35 Give up following the path of least resistance. – Life is not easy, especially when you plan on achieving something worthwhile.  Don’t find the easy way out.  Do something extraordinary.

P.S. my cupcake told me to go blog again. and so here I am :) I promise to blog more from now on!



I realize that happiness in life is not measured by anything.
Most people who have few money think that lots of money would bring them happiness, yet, people who have lots of money think that they don't need money to be happy. In fact, there are a lot of people who have millions but are still unhappy.
And, some people who get surgeries just so they would look beautiful (the way they see beauty), become happy at first, but end up not satisfied and want more.
Then I look at people who know nothing of fancy things in the city, no cellphones, no tv, just necessities..just the simple things we need in life. What amazes me, is that most of them are happier than people who have a lot. They don't ask for more. They're happy with their life just the way it is. I think, people should be more appreciative of what they already have and not ask for more. I think those who don't ask, receive more and are happier people.
Atleast, that's what I think. What do you think?

As for me, as long as I have my cupcake, I'm happiest. :)


Recently I went to Clark, Pampanga. If you haven't been there, I suggest you go! :)
The climate there is hot, but bearable. If you love korean food, there's a street there chuckfull of  korean restaurants (not to mention full of koreans! annyeonghaseyo! i thought i was in korea already. haha).
There are also lots of shops. I recommend Marquee Mall.
For food and other stuff, go to the Duty Free shops. You'd get imported items for less. :)

I also went to the bridge over the lahar from the famous Mt. Pinatubo. here's where I did my photoshoot. And... here's a photo of the lahar. :)

If you're wondering what's ALWAYS inside my knapsack, well, today I decided to show you. :D
