Sakura Unicorn Milkshake

Anything unicorn, rainbow and colorful catches my attention. That’s why I went gaga over Tokyo Bubble Tea’s Sakura Unicorn Milkshake!

I ordered Taro at Tokyo Bubble Tea SM North EDSA. I loved the presentation of the sweet milkshake. It’s topped with ice cream and “unicorn horn” candy which made it really adorable! Plus, the sweet & salty bubble gum taste of the cotton candy cream added flavor to the drink. ❤️

So cute! 😊

2017 Positive Planner

Hello there! Recently, I bought a planner and I’m hyped about it! Yes, even though I knew it was March, I still went for it because my brain can’t take organizing things on its own. 😂

This is the planner that I bought:

17692592_10206859843572975_1948452552_o

2017 Daily Interact Certified Positive Planner

As the name states, positivity and motivation beam off the planner. It includes encouraging quotes, memory verses, featured testimonies, stickers and mini postcards! It’s more interesting  because it has not only personal goals but also spiritual goals pages which would greatly help with and remind me of my growth in God. ❤️ I also like the ‘Savings Goal’ page because I’m urged to save and to know what I am to do with my savings. 😁😆  #GoodStewardship #MoneyGoalz

Yup! These stickers are not part of the planner. Haha. Bought them for design ❤

I really enjoy scribbling down stuff on my planner! It’s a leisure for me and recording my day would remind me of how my 2017 life’s going. 😊 This planner is a tool of encouragement and I’m excited how these pages would slowly be filled with great adventures! 😊

Overlooking the Present

IMG_6391.JPGThere are characters of mine that I would want to improve on – humility, patience, self-control, etc. And that, which I believe, is preceded by change. But then I came to realize that in desiring so much of whom I want to be (“the improved Sam”), I tend to overlook the present. I focused on whom I could become rather than what I should be doing in being the person I desire to be. My prayer often went “Lord, I pray that I’d be like this and that” or “Please make me like this and that” but it would turn out futile if it’s contrary to my actions because if so, I’ll never be the person whom I envisioned myself to be. Having a vision of what’s ahead is essential to be able to know your goal and where you’re going. Moreover, identifying what should be changed, having plans on what should be done and having the willingness to change would be more ideal and effective. As I continually see the words written in permanent stains of ink on every page this year has, I pray that I would grow in little and simple ways that would impact my life: to know God by being hungry for His Word and having my devotions every day, to be an excellent student by motivating myself (in passion and in joy) to study, to be a brave person by allowing myself to walk on water and trust God’s character in whatever situation I am in and to be a lady who pursues God’s heart by letting go of the temporary things for the eternal and by denying every self-will for God’s will. This is possible only by His grace. ❤ Also one thing that God has impressed to me, that no matter how fast people are growing around you and we seemingly feel like being left down the road, every step of ours is different from theirs. God knows what He is doing in our lives and He is at work! What’s most important is learning and enjoying the journey. 🙂

December 29, 2016 | Thursday

I may not have been much aware of the fun it brings nor recognized the magic it has but after 6 to 8 years, I’m back at it. 😉

I was very excited when we, together with our church’s staff and their family members, got to Enchanted Kingdom (EK). We were greeted by the amusement park’s song which sang “I love EK!~” I was hyped with the fact that I’m going to be experiencing all of these without forgetting (since I was younger when I first went) and was also curious since there were new inviting rides.

I, with my buddies Ate Gia, Kuya Aldrin, Ate Bianca, Ate Justine, Kuya Richie and Francis went around. No moment was wasted at the time we entered the place. First stop: Flying Fiesta. The first time I tried to ride here made me sad because only 3-4 feet people were allowed. 😦 But now I passed through without being measured in height. Hahaha 😂

Bringing extra clothes got us covered as we decided to go for Rio Grande. Before, my Achi Bianca rode this over and over again that she was in almost all of the photos of every family that rode. No kidding.


No water that ran down on our skin and that dripped from our clothes prevented us from going to the next ride which was Disk-O-Magic. I think Hillsong’s “Touch the Sky” should be added in their song playlist because I almost got to touch the sky when we were brought at opposite ends of the the curve. XD

We took a break first and dried ourselves and shoes from being drenched. 🙂 EK people were nice because they didn’t take our shoes which were under the heat of the sun. X)

Bare feet

Eating an ice cream and having a cold drink is always nice to relieve dizziness. 🙂

 

Refreshed from a break, my companions and I went to the ever famous Space Shuttle!! I was happy to be greeted by the spaceman/astronaut near the entrance. Ahoy! *Do astronauts have a special greeting? lol*

#AstroSelfie

My heart was pounding hard and I shamelessly screamed my lungs out… while waiting in line. YES I WAS THAT NERVOUS! Thank You, Lord, for sustaining me! Huhu. Hahaha. It was a fleeting-floating ride. It was like trying to understand things but you just couldn’t. Haha. I liked it when the roller coaster moved backwards since I got to feel my seat behind more than it was moving forward. XD My energy was sucked out after riding Space Shuttle. Hunger and sleepiness fell on me. Bed please!

Now for the last but not the least (emphasis on ‘not the least’) ride we went to was EKstreme Tower. I heard from my eldest sister that when they were dropped from the highest point, they felt like their soul was left mid air. She said it was like having a touch of heaven. I didn’t really thought of what she said about it but a gradual unveiling of understanding happened when I saw EKstreme Tower. Folks, the height of the tower was no joke! I thought it was not that high but it was. When some of us were in line, I was feeling SO tired and sleepy. I actually didn’t know what to feel or react because I felt I had no more energy to react from all the screaming I did. XD My companions urged and encouraged me many times whenever I tried to back out because honestly, I was very scared. One of the things that made me stay was when they, from time to time, pointed out the elementary kids who rode. …If they can, I can! XD

After almost an hour, I sat on and secured my place. I screamed as many times as I can and forced myself to think that “Hey, the scene up here is so beautiful!” and before I knew it, free fall happened. I was SO shocked with what happen.

DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN? WHAT WAS THAT? 😱😨😰😭

It was a moment you are at a point of saying something but then you got-

cut off.

The perfect emoji which resembled my face after the drop

A portion of my body went numb from my head to my knees. It was embarrassing because first, of my lit reaction and second, I literally freaked out so much after the ride. 💔

Extreme indeed.

But of course this is my personal experience and we all have different takes on the ride or what it really is. There’s no telling without even trying. Definitely recommendable and at the same time, do ride at your own choice and risk, dear readers. 🙂

After eating dinner, the day ended with EK’s night show where different circus people paraded and danced with their colorful, glowing and lighted costumes, and with the pretty fireworks display. I was happy to see the cute, green dino mascot and Elder the wizard. ❤️

The magic surely stayed with me. 🙂 What an EKsperience!

Salutations! Hello everyone, hello to y-o-u! I’m back from a terrific yet furious semester *le cries tears of joy* Today is the 3rd official day of my Semestral/Christmas break and I feel blissful! But at the same time, why do I feel so unproductive? Huhu and it’s because I’ve done nothing except to sleep, eat, use the internet, sleep again, lay down on my bed haha. Well, I guess I’m being hard on myself. I DESERVE THIS! haha.

It’s a rainy day and it’s perfect being cozy under my blanky ❤ I’m finished reading E.B. White’s “Charlotte’s Web”. A heartwarming story of friendship indeed. And as I was on the last chapter, I remembered a close friend of mine who is loyal and a good writer just like Charlotte 🙂 If you’re  friend of mine who’s reading this, it’s up to you if you think I refer to you. lol. I loved how E.B. White described the farm, he really gave vivid images of the story especially the farm setting 🙂

Aside from reading Charlotte’s Web, guess what??? I’m listening to Moana soundtrack and I’m in love with it!! ❤ My top 3 faves are (1) How Far I’ll Go, (2) We Know The Way, and (3) I Am Moana. I searched for the lyrics of We Know The Way and following the lyrics was a struggle but it has always been interesting to sing a song in another language though it makes my tongue twist. It’s an achievement if you’ve got to sing that just like singing a very fast rap song XD I’ve also looked up on South Pacific and its people and watched behind the scenes videos of Moana. I’m amazed with the skills of the people making an animated movie from the drawings, voice artists and music :”) Good job people of Moana ❤

If you haven’t listened to the soundtrack of Moana, please do so! ❤
