Taiwan Trip 2016

Hey all! I’ve been missing in action because of two things: I got sick and number two: I did some traveling! (It’s why I got sick.) Here’s a documentation of my recent Trip to Taiwan with my family:

To celebrate the graduations of my siblings (and perhaps mine too from last year), we decided to go on a family trip to Taiwan (June 20 – 25, 2016).

A Second Chance

So it’s been a year since I got dengue.

I got confined- my first time ever, and it was a scary time. For those who don’t know, dengue is an illness that is acquired through a mosquito a bite. The illness comes in different levels ranging from mild to high dengue and it can be fatal. I’m not sure what type I had but it was pretty bad.

  • First time to miss a contest I’ve been waiting a year to join

Just checking in…

Thought I’d put this blog post up to update what I’ve been up to lately since I’ve been kind of out-of-the-loop with the blogging world. I was supposed to put this up before 2016 arrived but I didn’t have the time to do it.

So it’s January 2nd now and I want to greet all of you a big HAPPY NEW YEAR before I continue. 2015 was a challenging year but I’m looking forward to what good things 2016 will bring. I’m being positive that it’ll be a good year.
