365 days of Happiness Challenge Day 5: Midnight Breeze


I am a nocturnal person. I find solace in the midnight breeze as much as the sunshine makes me smile when I wake up early.

Which is weird because there are days that I prefer the midnight breeze when I walk outside to inspire me. And another thing is I am terrified of the dark, but I find tranquility in how the breeze makes me feel safe.

And I think the midnight breeze makes me happy. It makes me smile to feel the breeze and just...feel alive.

I am currently stumped with a lot of backlogs of events I went to so you might see some event posts up after this.

I also have reviews I have yet to post so please bear with me.

Much Love!

365 DAYS OF HAPPINESS CHALLENGE DAY 4: SUNSHINE

I have always said that sometimes we need to stop and just enjoy the sunshine - and its true! There was an article I read about the sun and making your endorphin go up.

So once in a while I just like to enjoy the sun even if I am in the city.

That actually makes me happy sometimes - sunshine!

Its sounds so weird saying that but it is true. Whenever I am just chillin on my own, I prefer seeing rays of sunshine because it reminds me of rays of hope trying to reach you.

When I was younger, me and my family lived in this house where we had huge windows and my mom had to put curtains to cover it sometimes. What I would usually do is just open it a little bit and just look at it. I was really young back then and my mother didn't showered me with toys to play but encouraged me to explore around the house and use the whole space as a play area.

My parents were radical beings so don't be surprised if I raised my kids one day like that.

My mom actually  caught me one time just lying on the floor letting the rays hit me on my chest and asked me what I was doing, I told her I was ingesting the rays with my body. Mind you I was 7 years old at that time so my mom just shaked her head and told me to get up.

I am a terribly weird kid and up until this day I still am weird.

I just love the sunshine and it makes me smile. It may sound weird and someone crazy might say but I honestly do like the sunshine.

Just don't ask me if I love it after 10 am because those are not sunshine anymore, those are death rays from the sun.

Much Love

365 days of Happiness Challenge Day 3: Movies

I never thought how much of a movie buff I am when recently I went through the collection of movies I have watched online.

Being broke at the moment says a lot about it too because I don't really have that much money to have the luxury of watching a movie at the cinema house because I would rather spend my hard earned money on utilities than see a one hour plus long movie.

Most of the movies I've watched are also interesting.

Most of them are RomComs because obviously I am a girl and with the idealistic mind that one day I might meet my one true love in this circumstances, but also being half the realist/ bitter person that I am, there is only a 9.9999999% it won't happen.

The others are a mix of comedy, horror, and surprisingly enough some action was mixed in. The action ones are mostly inspired by my Papa because he loved movies that involved a bit of Bond and some other guy I forgot the name.

There was one common denominator with these movies though that I liked about. It reminded me of someone that I love.

There was this Thai movie that I kept watching over and over. It is the movie Crazy little thing called love, the one where I first met Mario Mauer (God he is such a cutie)

This movie reminded me one a man I really love back when I was in highschool. He tried pursuing a relationship with me, but I wasn't really emotionally ready. I didn't lead him on or anything, I really enjoyed his company and I always looked forward to seeing him.

But one day he just disappeared.

From time to time I still think of Joey, that's his name. I remember specifically the times he would come with me and just hang out. I really enjoyed his company and I really liked him. But I guess our destiny were not meant to be.

The good memories are still there and that is what makes me smile. Mario Mauer actually reminds me of Joey from time to time and the memories come back. Maybe that's why I keep watching that movie - Because I don't want to forget that one time in my life there was a guy named Joey that made me feel something in my heart.

If ever Joey does sees this post, I would just like to let you know that I am thankful I met you. I don't know if there might be another chance for us because its been a long time since we last talked. I still live in the same neighborhood but our neighborhood has changed a lot since you left. I do miss you and I wish to see you again.

Movies makes me smile because it reminds me of people I love. Joey is one of them.

Much Love

365 days of happiness Day 2: Writing

I remember when I was younger the very first thing I wanted to learn was to write.

When I started to write, I loved every bit of it. Now that I am older, I just remembered that and it made me smile.

Writing makes me happy. Maybe that is why I started blogging. I loved writing anything I think of, all the ideas and thoughts I have.

It made me live to write things I love, things I cherish and those that I want to do.

I remembered writing all the things I want to do before I reach 30 on a page of a notebook. I don't remember everything that is in there because it was a long time ago, but writing them down made me remember something - writing is my passion.

I started blogging to take my mind off things in my life. Then it evolved in trying to make money out of it.

I would admit that I went on a downward spiral of being hooked in monetizing my writing to earn money, it was basically easy money. But then I woke up crying because writing materials I don't like made me lose my motivation in writing.

Then that was when I stopped writing. I hated the thought of it. I became scared seeing the screen of my computer and even holding a pen and paper.

It made me sick. 

I just realized the other day that the reason I became a blogger was to influence people with what is in my mind - not to what was fed to me to write.

It made me wake up to that reality that maybe if I don't earn from this, it would still be my profession, my passion and my life.

I will keep writing till my fingers hurt because even if they bring pain, the happiness it gives me will still be there.

Much Love
xx Alice

365 Days of Happiness Challenge

Its been a while since I wrote a really personal post on this blog. The reason for that is nobody really reads my blog anymore and I have lost my interest in speaking my mind.

Nobody will care anyway. 

But then one day it hit me - I have become the thing I didn't want, an empty shell with no happiness.

I've lost my sense of happiness and I want to get it back. and I am starting today.

For the next 365 days I will find my happiness. The thing that makes my heart beat and makes me smile even if the whole world is dim in front of me.

If you see this post, you may disregard it as just another 20 somethings search for the inevitable but what the hell.

Each day I will be post something that made me happy. It may be a simple text, emoji or simply the sky.

I want to see that Alice that doesn't give a single fuck what the world thinks about her - because she is the only boss bitch she needs to keep moving up.

Join me in finding happiness. Who knows you might find yours here too.

Much Love.
xx Alice

Last April 24, 2017 at Club 690 in Quezon City was the invitational send-off press conference of Mr. Gay World Philippines John Raspado to Mr. Gay World 2017 which will take place with the attendance of pageant and showbiz media alike.

Your girl wasn’t there but I would like to share my support for our bet for the coveted title.

But still even if he is in the lead, it would be great to show our support by continuously voting for him.  As he is also gunning the award for best in Social Media.

If you want to show your support you can click HERE to vote for him!

Beauty Finds at a click of a button with Sephora PH!





Since I am back in Manila, I want to share to you girl a quick haul I had with Sephora Philippines!

Take note that I ordered these when I was still in Mindanao to check if they have really good service and I would say its far from what I expected.

I purchased some Burt's Bees products since I have been curious to try out a lot of their items.

I ordered these about 2 weeks ago, and the package arrived a week later - It was that fast!

With my previous online purchases, they usually take about a week and a half, but with Sephora they would send the products you ordered the soonest they can! And I am very impressed with this.

Okay now let's go to the products that I've purchased.

I purchased a total of 6 items: 2 skincare products and 4 lip products.


Burt's Bees is a brand that cares for their customers as they would like to use natural ingredients to be used to the skin. I actually have tried their lip balms before but I was surprised that they now have tinted lip balms!


I actually got two tinted lip balms with a lip crayon. 


I also purchased 2 All day moisture lipstick in Nile Nude and Scarlet Soaked.

I'll do a separate post on these lip products because I've only used the lipstick once. 

I only got a pack of cleansing wipes to try out, which came in a good time because I want to try something new in terms of cleansing wipes. This actually smells nice and its not too overpowering. 


I have oily combination skin so knowing that this is for sensitive type makes me raise my brows if this will work out for me. Let's see in the future if this works out. 


And last item on the list is the natural anti blemish purifying daily cleanser with willow bark. 

This is the first time trying out Burt's bees skin care products, as of the reviews I've read most of them give out a positive comment about Burt's Bees products so I am hoping that this product can keep the pimples at bay this summer season since I break out more during this time. 

For a stress free shopping experience shop at Sephora PH! 

I am really amazed with this product because they really get the job done in no time! 

I will be ordering here again soon, so make sure to check back for more Sephora PH hauls ok? 

If you girls want to know more about Sephora PH and also other Burt's Bees products you can check this link for more information. 

Much Love!

To New Adventures


Yes, I know it's been a while. 
Yes. I was away for some long. 

And now I am back! 

And I miss you all! 

I haven't been writing because I went into an adventure. It's not something of a soul-searching trip but somehow it became one. 

And if you noticed in the picture above YES! I have mustered enough courage to pose for this! 

That means something for me since I don't have a lot of confidence when it comes to my weight and my looks.

To the haters,

 please spare me the spiteful comment of why I am fishing for compliments because I am definitely not doing that. 

I am thinking of revamping this blog but at the moment, I am still figuring out what I have to do with my life. 

I am in that crossroad again of where to go, What to do and who to go with. 

I am currently in Ozamiz City for the past 2 and a half months. A lot of things happened. There are good things, bad things, and also the ugly ones. 

I would admit that the past few months I haven't been writing because I am uninspired.

Maybe because of depression, or home-sickness or the stress of everything. I just didn't find it appealing to write anymore during that time. I actually have a lot of time to draft articles and even edit pictures! It was such a waste that at that time depression took over me. 

It was sort of a time as well in my life that I mostly cried on my own just to alleviate the pain that I am far away from everyone that I care of. 

I am still in a dark place in my mind, in which sometimes I just stop and mindlessly think of all the possiblities of what if I quit? 

But there is that one little voice that keeps shouting NO. 

No to giving up because I have already spent too much effort on this project to be swallowed by the stress and also depression. 

And that is why I am writing this article. I want to let you guys know that I need your help in building myself again. Let's rebuild that girl that started writing here back in 2010 that is full off vicarious energy that you see in each informative and sometimes crazy articles. 

I want that Alice back again. Help me.

MAYOR PAROJINOG CELEBRATES BROTHERHOOD AND CAMARADERIE


January 25 was a memorable day as Mayor Reynaldo “Áldong” Parojinog celebrates brotherhood and camaraderie among his peers and the local tribe of Ozamiz in lieu with his birthday.
 

 Held at his farm, present were members of various local government units, along with the various mayors of the province of Misamis Occidental as spearheaded by Governor Herminia M. Ramiro; all to show that they support his endeavors and display unity in the said province.

Not only was it attended by political people, members of the local tribe of Subanen was also present to show their appreciation to all his efforts in preserving their cultural heritage – one of the reasons as to why Ozamiz City was awarded the Seal of Good Local Governance last 2016.

 
Showing their appreciation and acceptance of the mayor, the present Subanen tribesmen conducted a small blessing and brotherhood ceremony over the mayor; no small feat knowing the value and importance of this ceremony between the tribe and its acknowledged mayor.

Food were shared by all, entertainment was also aplenty and well wishes were all that could be heard that day as people celebrated for Mayor Parojinog. The Parojinog family was ever present, showing love and support to the present patriarch. The whole event echoed unity of the whole city for their mayor and that of the province. It was not just a day for blood relations but also those related in spirit – the spirit of unity.


POLICE CHIEF INSPECTOR JOVIE ESPENIDO DECLARES OZAMIZ AS NEAR 0 DRUG ACTIVITY CITY IN THE SOUTH


Ozamiz City - New Police Chief Inspector Jovie Espenido declares that Ozamiz City is a near – 0 – drug free activity in the whole of Misamis Occidental. Out of the 10 drug test buy activity conducted, only 2 of it held illegal drugs and it is not clear whether the source is from the city itself or from another location. Transferred from Albuera, Leyte last 2016, Police Chief Inspector Espenido is glad to find the local government open to discussions on drug bust activities in the city. After being tagged as the new drug-buster of Leyte, Espenido is now faced with clearing the name of Ozamiz City as an active drug activity place in Mindanao. From the latest regular session meet last January 16, 2017 held at the city hall of Ozamiz, he was invited to present his assessment on the latest drug activity in the city. For him, this open door policy exhibited by the local government is a positive sign for him to create a good relationship with the local government and the police force.
Based on his assessment report presented to the local government, the drug activity of the place is quite minimal compared to the perception of those non-residents of the said city. He is quite positive that this present trend will lead from minimal to 0-drug related activity in a couple of years since the local government is in full support in eradicating all illegal drug activity in their city. s From the side of the local government, they are quite pleased with the assessment report presented by the new police chief inspector and shall continue to maintain an open door discussion with the police force to help eliminate the false assumption held by those who has initially believed in the high drug activity in the city.

This latest development between the police force and the local government is a clear sign of a hand-in-hand cooperation and relationship in fighting all illegal drug activity in the area of Misamis Occidental starting with Ozamiz City.

So if you are planning on visiting Ozamiz anytime soon and think of these things. I would just like to let you know - From a person that has been staying in Ozamiz for some time that illegal activities are under control and it is safer here than any place I have lived in my life.

Much Love!

xx Alice
