Super Typhoon Hagibis: Emergency and Evacuation Procedures (My Personal Experience)

The sky was full of stars when I got home from the shelter. Super typhoon Hagibis has passed and thank, God we're all okay.

News about the super typhoon got out early last week and it was expected to be the strongest typhoon of the century. I didn't care about it that much same as what I usually do when there's one from where I'm from. I'm from a country that is frequently visited by typhoons so it didn't bother me that much. But as we approached the weekend I got paranoid about it. The typhoon was expected to reach Japan last Saturday, and Japan was prepared.

Ready for Halloween?

It seems like Japan is excited for Halloween as much as I am because I've been seeing Halloween Displays since the end of August. Who wouldn't be? I'm sure you are always reminded of candies and costumes when you hear the word Halloween. As for me, I'm mostly excited about the costumes. I cosplayed (costume playing) a lot back when I was in the Philippines. I just love dressing up and Halloween is a fun (and normal) time to be wearing a costume.

I've been really busy since moving here and I don't really have the time to make costumes or go out to buy them so I'm thankful to have found a website where I could order socks to go with my costume! Saves me less time to find one where I am.

Chrissy's Knee High Socks is having a Sale right now for the Halloween so why not head over and check them out now!

I've got a few very easy costume ideas for you guys as well. Check some of them in this list:

SILA 2.0 Saxophone Idols Live in Action


Last year I watched SILA Saxophone Idols Live in Action at the Music Museum and was blown away (did you see the pun there?) by their amazing talent with the saxophone. I have always been a fan of saxophone music but they took me to a different level of fangirling. LOL.

This year, they are yet again getting ready to amaze us as they are having SILA 2.0 Saxophone Idols Live in Action on October 12th at the Newport Performing Arts Theater!

I am honestly sad that I will not be there to witness it since as you know I am a potato in Japan now, but have I got a treat for you guys in the Philippines!

Twenty Five and Learning (A Birthday Thought Post)

"Another year to add to my age. 23 years, still wandering aimlessly in this place called life. Should I be here? Where should I go? What should I do? Questions I always ask myself until now. Juggling between so many things I want to do but still can't find where I should really be, what I'm actually good at. or if there ever is something I'm good at."

This was a post I wrote for my birthday 2 years ago. Why does it feel like time flies by so fast? I am now 25, not feeling lost anymore and I don't feel sorry for being myself and what I have become after 2 years. It has been a long bumpy ride to get where I am today. I have worked hard to get here and all the struggles were worth it.

I still can't believe that I am on my silver year now. I feel so old and so adult (LOL) specially now that I live alone in a foreign country. I feel like I'm an entirely different person now, even my friends say so. A lot of them get surprised to see how strong I've become, how straightforward I talk and how at times I become so apathetic with things I used to be so emotional about. Well, life hit me hard on the chest and made me what I am now. It feels so good to be able to breathe after all that though.

I listed a few things that I've learned in my journey to becoming an adult; which I think applies for everyone. Read through and it just might help you out:

Althea Korea's New A'Bloom Collection Review

Althea Korea has officially launched their new A'Bloom Collection last month on all Althea sites. I was so excited about their new products because this is exactly what I need in this cold Japan weather. Everyone needs to take care of their skin you know?

Life Lately Vol. 3 New Life in Japan

Surprise! I now live in Japan. If you read My 2019 Goals blog post, you will know about the "opportunity" I mentioned about on the last part of the post. It is actually about me working in Japan, and now, I'm actually here.

It has now been a month and a day of me living here in Japan. Thankfully, I haven’t been that homesick since I got here (only for that one time I missed my mom’s cooking) which made it less harder being away. It has been a nice month and I am still super happy about getting to live here because it has always been my dream to be able to go to Japan and now I even have a resident card which is even more awesome.

My 2019 Goals

It had been a long 2018 but it seemed to be too short to complete our goals and aspirations for the year. There’s been a lot of setbacks for 2018 and some goals I wasn’t able to accomplish but this new year gives us a chance to reach them and maybe even make ourselves better. 2018 has been an unexpected year for me, I gained a lot of new dear friends and lost some that used to mean a lot. There’s also been great opportunities presented and blessings given. I can say I’ve grown a lot and learned a lot from last year and 2019 is going to be better. As my best friend always says, this is our year, we just need to strive hard and put our hearts into it. That is why I made a list of goals to accomplish this year that will make 2019 MY awesome year.

Mercury Drug Suki Planner 2019

Last year, this planner has been the talk of the town and it was hard to get one after getting viral all over social media. It didn’t get the limelight this year after Limelight’s 2019 Planner caught the attention of the media (did you see what I did there? Lol). Nonetheless, the Mercury Suki Planner did not disappoint this year and still is one of the best planners around.

Namu Life Snail White Facial Jelly Wash Review

Around the last quarter of 2018, I only cleansed my face using any color of Safeguard (a local anti-bacterial bath soap) and we all know it isn’t healthy for the face but I don’t know why I kept using it. LOL. Around October I decided to hunt for a proper facial wash and ended up at Watson’s. I was planning to get a Cetaphil cleanser when this beauty caught my eye. I’ve been hearing a lot of good reviews about Snail White and I wanted to try it for myself. It has been 3 months that I’ve been using it and here is my review.

9 Lives Game – No, these cats don’t explode.

I was looking through the Indie Games Booths at ESGS 2018 when this game immediately caught my eye. Because why not?? IT’S A GAME ABOUT CATS! WE ALL LOVE CATS! (or maybe not). Anyway, I sat down and threatened the booth person with his life to play with me (no I didn’t threaten him, don’t bring me to jail). He was really nice and patiently taught me how the game works. His name is Yves Suiza by the way, the game is his brainchild but was produced by a team called Promeworks (also headed by himself). The game is the team’s pilot project.

Althea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser Review

I have always wanted to have my own 10-step Korean beauty routine but who am I kidding, I don’t even have the time to finish 5. So I always go for products that are convenient with multiple benefits. I look for products that specialize with treating pores. I have naturally enlarged pores, they have been like that since I reached puberty, and they aren’t the ones that are caused by acne scars, I think it runs in the blood (since my dad also has them). I hate it, I’d do anything to minimize them and I think I found the right product for it. I received a Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser from Althea and I’ve been using it for a week now.
