How many times have I found myself lost? Unable to know the answers to my never-ending curiosity about this world? How many times have I found it hard to understand myself - thinking I was alone in this journey - full of rejections and unreasonable qualms? Many times, I found myself alone in a crowd, thinking they never feel what… Continue reading "Books, Thank You for the Company"
Twilight by Stephanie Meyer was the very first series that I've really enjoyed reading. It feels like, I'm living as one of the characters in the book (and the movie too). I can't get enough of it. Going back, I don't usually read a book, then (judge) watch its movie counterpart. I was enchanted by Edward Cullen's charm - suddenly, I… Continue reading "How To Enjoy Reading"
This post from one of my favorite celebrity family, #teamKramer, made me smile a lot!

Definition of Terms: CC = Credit card Before having my own credit card, a year ago, I thought, I was the type who can't be able to control my impulse to shop. But, thank goodness, for the past one year of having a CC, my debt didn't go beyond 5,000PHP a month. At least, I have everything under control. One… Continue reading "Books and CC"

I have been reading multiple blogs earlier when I stumble on Julien Smith's Blog and there, I have learned a lot and one of which is to read at least 2-3 books per week. I know it will be too much for me because I'm not a fast reader and sometimes, I enjoy writing more than reader but then, I can start… Continue reading "A Vow to Keep"
We should start at an early age. The younger the better. We must not make them feel that books should only be opened in school and is a burden for them. At a young age, buy them coloring books, activity books or interactive books, books with a lot of pictures (with bright pictures and colors) so they could be interesting… Continue reading "How Can We Encourage Kids to Read?"
When I was a little girl, I don't usually read books for leisure. I just open my books when we have home work or projects and I really hated them because textbooks for me are really boring.
