Mabuhay 2018!

Happy New Year!

Here I am popping out into the blogosphere after a break from posting. It’s refreshing and weird at the same time. Anyway, before I chatter about my challenge of ze month, I’d like to share some snapshots ofย  Vancouver. It’s not my hood but let’s just say I spend a lot of time in the city.



A street comedian at Granville Island once joked that people in Vancouver were at least any one of three things: poor, single or depressed. He said he was two of those things and at that point I thought the same for myself.

It’s kind of sad when you think about it. This is why we need artists, to tell us the truth in such simple and effective ways. In any case, the city remains as beautiful and scenic as ever. These photos were taken on a dreary day and everything still looks good especially the mountains. So for 2018, I wish for Vancouverites to appreciate beauty even when the clouds roll in and to be these three things: hopeful, sincere and joyful.


Now for my January challenge…it’s a little. Ehr..uhm..well. I want to do my make-up everyday. I was a bit iffy with this challenge butย  I have good reasons for it. First, it makes me look better and therefore makes me feel better. Two, I really need to learn it because it’s a skill. I mean at my age, I could really have a kid right now but alas, I have no discipline nor skill to do even my own make-up? How can I raise a bebe?! Three, I am forced to get up minutes earlier so I can do this challenge!

I’ve always believed that lip color = I got my life together. Whether I do have my shiz together or not for real is irrelevant. Hehe.ย  But I won’t give myself a check mark if I simply put on lipstick. The rule is to at least do/have 3 out of the following:

  1. brow powder
  2. curl lashes
  3. mascara
  4. tinted moisturizer or foundation
  5. blush
  6. lipstick
  7. eye shadow

So far so good and I usually do 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6. I keep off the mascara most days because I hate washing it off and silly me I also bought the non-waterproof one which means it smudges all the time. I also have the habit of rubbing my eyes.

I don’t know if that was in the least bit interesting but let’s all be unapologetically ourselves in 2018.

Mabuhay 2018! —- pun intended. let’s respect lives in this new year. ^_^
