Whether or not you’re a Linkin Park fan, i’m sure you’ve heard of the heartbreaking news about the band’s vocalist, Chester Bennington. Of all the celebrity deaths i’ve read hitherto, this is probably the first one that hit me the hardest, mainly because Linkin Park played quite a big part in my teenage years. I listened to their music growing up and related to their lyrics a lot. Continue reading “But in the end…”
Life is not a competition
Life is NOT a competition…
…is something i’ve been telling myself every time i start feeling envious of my peers, whenever i feel like i am not on par with them, or when it feels as if i’m falling behind. Continue reading “Vicious cycle of comparison”
Layoff, albeit euphemism for fired, is not a positive word. It isn’t nice on the ears, and definitely not nice to be on the receiving end of it. It isn’t a light topic either thus my animosity toward those who utter the word easily or go around telling other people they risk getting laid off. When it is most likely not true. I was like, wtf man?
Employment is a feat, no matter where you’re based at, regardless of your credentials. Continue reading “Unapologetic ranting”
I’m feeling far from great lately… and i don’t write as often anymore. I used to just spill everything out in words since there are so many things i can’t express verbally, but nowadays… idk… my brain remain ruckus-full but i can’t seem to translate them into coherent writing. Majority of them get dropped midway; the rest that i managed to complete (and post here) took me days — sometimes weeks — to finish. And it exhausts me. Continue reading ““Yeah, this is my wish…””

There is decorum for anything. Gifting is considered social behavior(?) so any ‘rule’ is most likely not written down but passed down from generation to generation anyway. There is no definitive and binding rule of gifting doesn’t mean you are free to give anything to anyone without any second thoughts or exercising any discretion.
It is still something that will reflect back on you, like it or not. Continue reading “The Art of Gifting”
Travel can make you appreciate your home(town) more.
I read something along this line before. I didn’t think i would agree, but i did — and still do. You may be dubious, like how is that possible? The reason we travel, go on vacation, and take time off is to get away from stifling routine, to be refreshed, or to escape ‘reality’ albeit temporarily, isn’t it? Continue reading “Post travel syndrome? Not really…”
Life Blog update… sort of: ‘cuz life update sounds much duller, haha.
Anyhow, by now people in the stormy fandom are under the weather of nobody knows giddiness, with the PV and single already floating around since the weekend, while i still
have had to fork out time to finish Arafes 2013. I don’t like being rushed. I also think that watching live concert DVD Blu-ray is best enjoyed at one’s own pace, but it feels like i’ve been racing against time to keep up with all of these updates and back-to-back releases lest i keep getting spoiled here and there…
No, this isn’t about either yet. This is about this blog and i, my intermittent posts or lack thereof, the excuses, and other things, relatedness be damned. Continue reading “Behind the scenes”

Hauls. Have seen people do that and post it up – makeup, beauty, fashion, whatever haul is possible out there. While I view it as an unnecessary squandering spurred mostly by impulse, at times I find myself envying them and wish I’d too have unlimited resources to go and have one myself. It’s not that I can’t afford it per se, but I’d invariably feel guilty waring on items even when they’re on sale. Continue reading “Finally! A pleasant encounter with service”
If you’re an avid Arashi’s fan or following Japanese entertainment news in general, you must’ve known/read articles about NazoDi’s main cast and director holding a world premiere event in Singapore for the latest addition in Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato de’s franchise, a movie this time, last weekend.
This will NOT be about the event or the movie itself, in case you’ve grown tired of reading about it already by now, because: 1) I’m not a fan of the series to begin with (have yet to finish watching the SP), 2) I didn’t attend the event, and 3) I read not enough articles or reports on it to give a summary or view of any sort.
