Vista Land’s premier condos launch big-cut units

Thursday, January 25, 2024

For the longest time, condominium homes have been commonly regarded as tiny, compact living spaces that are either a boon or a bane to their dwellers. A small studio-type condo unit may seem like a boon to career-driven individuals whose highy mobile lifestyles leave them little time to maintain their living quarters. On the other hand, space restrictions are a bane to those who like to entertain friends and host gatherings at home.


Homeowners and guests at The Spectrum, Vista Shaw, Laureano de Trevi Towers, and Wil Tower will have upscale amenities at their disposal.

I am guilty of neglecting my dental health since the pandemic happened. But I am changing that this 2024! I promise to give my teeth more importance as I am experiencing serious tooth issues.


My basic dental resolution is to have regular cleaning. By regular, it meant going back every 6 months (and not just yearly or so hehe). Honestly, I am not really afraid of dental clinics, but I wasn't keen on visiting either because it would often take up my day. But then recently, I discovered Affinity Dental Clinics' Airflow Prophylaxis. It's a new 'cutting-edge dental innovation that makes teeth cleaning procedure pain-free, FAST, and of course the most important: EFFECTIVE!

My "Nationwide" Closet Sale: A Little Story Time!


It's that time of the year again! Ever since the pandemic, from December to January, I hold a HUGE online closet sale to purge my room of things I haven't been using and make room for new things in life! It's my own "Spring Cleaning" version to welcome the new year with a clean slate.


Since I sell online within my small community, I have encountered several people living in different areas in the country or even abroad. I have buyers from as far as Bukidnon, Samar, and Jolo! It fascinates me how far I can deliver goods.


I also sold lots of curated boxes as my online business during the pandemic

My 2023 TMIs (Year-End Essay Post, HEHE)

Sunday, December 31, 2023

I thought adjustments were made in 2022, but this year has been akin to riding a horror house rollercoaster. A lot of changes happened. A bit of TMI, I tried applying for a scholarship (masters in digital communications) in Korea early part of the year but didn't pass the process. As they say, when one door closes, another one opens—but I think this rejection didn't just open another door but even the veranda sliding doors and windows totally broke free this year lol.


My favorite photo of 2023, in my little hanok home in Andong. First morning at the village, opened the creeking sliding doors, and everything's so serene and beautiful.

Good night Keeks, see you later!

Tuesday, December 26, 2023

I wrote this on the day my dog of almost 15 years (14 year and 9 months to be exact) passed away. I was filled with emotions, so there is no organization when I wrote this. I just needed to write everything so my "1TB brain" will never forget. I am re-reading and posting this now so I can somehow immortalize my emotions. Death is such a cruel part of life, but it is also the biggest proof of how one can love and be loved so much. Thank you so much Keeks! You are the best dog I ever had.
