SULU GARDEN MIAG AO

Image
Last month my friends Psyche and Crystal asked me to go with them at Sulu Garden Miagao, Iloilo. It's just an hour and a half commute from the city.  It was a nice Japanese inspired restaurant with a very interesting man-made landscape features. Eating there is like a walk in a  tranquil garden since that you can take pictures freely with all the miniature architectures. If you want a relaxing place without the noise and hassle of the city then this is the perfect place for you.   ♥
Below are some pics that we took while visiting there.
ENJOY! ♥♥♥






We asked the waiter to take a picture of us Below are the cute miniatures and amazing plants that you can freely take pictures with. 





HOW DID I OVERCOME FAILURE AND SADNESS.

Image
I was on the 26th floor in one of the most beautiful hotels in Makati City, Philippines. The city lights at night are blinding but beautiful in a weird way. I was holding my breath while looking out of the glass window. I didn't had the best week, I was a failure, I failed the exams, I was stressed out and I was crying like there's no tomorrow. It came to a point where there are no positive thoughts left in my mind anymore. My heart was beating so fast and I can feel that there is a dark cloud showering me with nothing but sadness. I wanted to jump out of the window and end up the miserable feeling that I was experiencing. I quit the job that was supposed to be a good step for my career but I was failing so hard even if I was studying like crazy and all the emotional feeling are unexplained. I had an emotional breakdown and I feel so helpless every now and then. After what happened I decided to go home and face my sadness alone. I was so shy and I can't even look my frien…

WHY AM I UNHAPPY?

Image
Today I had 4 cups of tea and my somewhat artistic mind just keeps on winding. I can't think of anything to do so I grabbed my cellphone tripod and wore my colorful pair of shoes that's filled with sequins and happy prints. I always loved vibrant colors and weird pieces of clothes since I was a kid. I have uncontrollable emotions when it comes to art that I even colored my barbie's hair red using a permanent pentel pen.


I had happy days but like most unique unicorns I had bad ones too. People will dislike you for loving things that they hate. Some may hate anything that they cannot understand. They will criticize you for being different and it will end up telling you to change. Most people have a perfect example of what a person should be and if it won't resemble you of course, they will judge you because you are outside of their comfort zone. Sadly, like any other normal human i changed. I opted for neutral tones, I pretend that I hated too colorful childish things, …

💜LIFE OF BERNADETTE💜 "How to stop yourself from buying stuff that you don't need."
"PAYDAY" sounds magical right?! Well, who can blame you? Days full of stress, deadlines, irritating colleagues, annoying bosses, there are endless reasons to feel so wasted. So what's the most popular reliever? "SHOPPING."
All that sale and big billboards that says 50% off on everything hypnotize us and affects our lives more than we ever know. With just one swipe all your hard earned money goes to stuff that you don't actually need. Its ok, I know the feeling of guilt that you have spent all your money instead of saving it to your bank account. At first glance you will say that this discounted item will make you feel happy, will make you feel contented and also you think that you saved a lot by buying what's on sale. Well, newsflash! You will be saving more if you actually kept it because spending on something that is on sale in't equal to saving.  So…

MY ROAD TO MINIMALISM

My Road to Minimalism

"Extreme" The first word that entered in my head when i first read what minimalism is and also after watching a few videos that are circulating on facebook. I was like how can they live with just a few items? What if they'll experience lazy days and would rather spend their day on the couch than doing laundry because they only have a few pieces of clothing? I told myself that i can't live like that. 
As time goes by I was feeling a bit stressed out with my job, my life and everything that surrounds me. EVERYTHING IS OVERWHELMING. I used to be a Sales Executive for a car company here in the Philippines so the pressure is always around the corner. I stayed in the company for almost 2 and a half years but the environment is so toxic that i decided to quit (i will tell you why on my other blog entries 😉) . I was suffering from Gerd and high blood pressure because of my unhealthy lifestylr and eating was my way out. Hoarding make up was my favorite th…
