“Expect the worst. Hope for the best.”

I recall one professor telling me this many years back. Though this quote may be too pragmatic for an idealist like me, it is actually useful in some situations. Like traveling.


A Tale of Two Sisters in a Land Far Far Away

family, food

Since last week was our school term break, my youngest sister, Gelli, came over from the Philippines for a holiday. Though I do go back home to visit every year, I don’t have the luxury to spend a lot of time in a day with her. One, she’s already working (feeling old now…hahaha).

life lessons, thoughts

What…it’s September already?! I can’t believe it’s the last quarter of 2016! How did timeĀ  fly by so fast?
