Reminiscing yet again. I think it’s always the toughest during the holiday season. As we prepare for Christmas, we really wish our maternal grandparents were still around. Even for one day.

I can’t remember how old I am here. I think we’re 4 or 5. You can’t quite tell because it’s a bit blurry, but I think I just finished drinking soda or fruit juice. Bianca and I had super red lips. LOL. Maybe it was Hi-C? I really liked our matching haircuts. #twinning

I love my grandparents. They all raised me with so many values and important lessons. It sticks with me to this day. I hope I’ve made you proud.

Sweet dreams to all.



This post is dedicated to my Dad. It was his birthday on November 19! Happy Birthday, Dad!! Looking forward to many more celebrations. I love you! ❀

I didn’t do much this week. I worked on Monday, 11/20, and the rest of the week I was off because of the holiday! I slept in, watched a bunch of movies, made dinner, re-watched Sex and the City, had my holiday dinner with relatives, did some online shopping, took care of chores, and caught up with good friends.

Hoping to get back in the swing of things since it’s back to work tomorrow. I’m excited! πŸ™‚

I just wanted to document this. Drinking boba milk tea at a late hour isn’t a good idea. I think it was almost 9pm. I’m so sensitive to caffeine.

I’m awake yet again. Maybe I’ll watch a Christmas movie on Netflix? I love Christmas movies! πŸ™‚

That is all.

Sweet dreams.


#TBT: June 24, 2009.


Here I am at Dolores Park. I was 22. I had to help my cousin out with a photo project for his class. It was pretty fun. I remember doing a bunch of silly poses & jumping! My fave. πŸ™‚

I still have that All-Star Game jersey in my closet. Oh baseball, how I miss thee. Just waiting for spring. Come back soon!!!


I have so much to be thankful for this year, including the hardships. There’s a silver lining for everything, right? Hoping for the best. Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.

I stand in solidarity with the indigenous peoples of America.Β 

Good night.


#TBT: Laki, 2014.



Today marks eight months since you went away. There isn’t a day when we don’t think of you! Laki (luh-key) was a very special dog. I loved to call him little brother, little man, and my shadow. He followed everyone, but he and I had a special connection. I was very overprotective of him, partly because he was quite small in stature. He was our first male dog. He loved taking naps and sitting on everyone’s laps while we did our homework.

His name came from the Tagalog word malaki which means big. But since he was small, the name fit perfectly. Our dad came up with his name. We had some trouble deciding, but what do you expect from teenagers. Indecisive! Lol.

I miss you every day, Laki. I hope you’re enjoying the great big sky. May there always be treats, lots of food, and comfy blankets around you.

I love you always.


MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: October 29-November 4, 2017.

October came and went. Baseball is officially gone. WHY?! 😦 The weather is definitely cooler – bust out your scarves, beanies, gloves, and layer up!! Spent time with family, friends, and staying in for Halloween. I was sucked in by the World Series, but really who can blame me?! πŸ˜›
