It’s 2018 so new year, new me? LOL XD A lot of things happened and I must admit that I wasn’t that ready to welcome 2018 yet but still, of course, celebrated the year with open arms! Beyond blessed that my family is always there and supportive of everything I do.

Here’s some bucket full of sunshine..


  • Welcomed the Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve with my family complete. Papa’s vacation this year was very timely because it falls on the month of December โ€“โ€“holiday season.
  • Finished reading Rainbow Rowell’s “Midnights” for a Christmas storytime. I loved ittt! ๐Ÿ˜€
  • Had a family picture taken at the studio and had it framed in our family hall. It was a memorable experience because the photographer instructed us to do various fun poses and we absolutely enjoyed XD.
  • Papa finally tried theย  Nuclear 2x Spicy Noodles/Samyang/Korean Spicy Noodles whatever you call it haha ๐Ÿ™‚
  • I cooked our Christmas and New Year’s Eve dinner! Plus, my sister made desserts. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing your family enjoying the food you prepared.
  • I received my Christmas gifts one week earlier before 25th of December so I don’t have any gifts to open for the Christmas Eve. :3
  • Before 2017 ended, I made new friends. Bianca from Romania and Fiona from Belgium! If you two are reading this, thank you for being kind and friendly to me! โค
  • Posting some of my travel photos from last year to declutter my album and maximize my phone storage and give space for new memories.
  • My aunt and cousin Donmar visited us and I enjoyed playing with him lol miss that cutie.
  • In love with Elizabeth Arden: 5th Avenue scent!
  • I treated myself at a nail salon and had it painted with OPI’s holiday colours screaming with elegance.

I’ve been so busy this past few week and I had a lot of reviews and requirements going on. Thinking of a new content to post but I need some free time to do it. I’ll check my planner if I can insert it into my schedule.

Have a great day ahead!

Much Love,

1.9 Sunsets and Dreams

giphy (2)

I thought everything was real until 2:38 A.M. that’s the time I woke up last night from a deep sleep. It was you and me together on a road trip. You were driving and I’m staring at you from the passenger seat. Remembering every trace of your face. We were sharing laughs and never-ending stories. The contentment that I felt that time was unexplainable. As I was staring at you, every lyricย from the song playing from the radio matches my thoughts about who you are and how special you are for me. Then we stopped at the nearest beach to watch the beautiful sunset. Sitting on the shore, it was the perfect spot to witness the mesmerizing sunset. You intertwined yourย fingers with mine. You told me things my mind can’t fathom but surprisingly my heart did. As I stare straight at the sun to set, I can see in my peripheral view that you were staring at me smiling. Then I whispered quietly: Maybe, after all, my heart still beats for you.





CLUE: “Susan shines shoes and socks” If you can’t pronounce this properly then yes, this post is for you.ย 

Much Love,

1.8 For you, [MY] FRIEND

First off, let me start this by saying THANK YOU.

THANK YOU because I learned plenty of things today because of you.

I am now more appreciating the small little things that I do not seem to notice before.

THANK YOU. If not because of your selfish acts, Iย wouldn’t strive hard to be more conscientious in my studies. You let me discover my own weaknesses and because of that, I knew myself better than I did before.

THANK YOU that even sometimes you left me alone. I unlocked brand new levels of challenges that helped me to be that strong independent lady.

And I found out eating my favorite food though alone, is one of the best feelings and gives me a break from all the stress life offers.ย โ€” Me Time it is. *wink*

THANK YOU for the times that you’re pushing me to my limits. It reminds me that I’m also a humanย โ€” who has boundaries and emotions too.

THANK YOU though you’re the soul sibling of Grinch, I was able to control myself not to be consumed by your insecurities and hate.

Lastly, I’m going to end this by saying THANK YOU again. Not because of you, I won’t be motivated to articulate my thoughts and write this words that I truly wanna say for so long.

Much Love,

Merzl ๐Ÿ’–
