Hello, Summer! I still haven’t finished my playlist. haha I doubt I’ll ever finish it. These songs are definitely included though:
The feel-good song:
Daft Punk-Get Lucky
The perfect NY song:
Vampire Weekend-Step Up
The “hipster” song:
John Gold-Vampire’s Kiss
Yeahh, I’m going indie/hipster. Might add a little Kanye, Drake, B.I.G. and of course some Eraserheads and Sugarfree to satisfy my OPM needs!!!
It surprises me how quick people move on from tragedies —and this is not in a lovelorn sense. For example, most people often forget the aftermath of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings and WWI and WWII in general. And how about the Spanish influenza?
It’s not a bad or shameful thing, though. I understand how we’d want to forget all about these sickening human acts but it kind of pains me how we forget about all the lives lost and the emotions their families are feeling even today. I am happy and relieved that these places all over the world have truly risen up and transformed into modern, beautiful and peaceful places. And despite this, they’ve still commemorated and paid respect to the tragic events and the people who were involved.
What I’d want to see though is that the world will all unite and remember all the lives, culture, and memories lost. It surprises me how younger generations don’t know these important events which dictate our history. I think it’ll be better for everyone to be aware and acknowledge, respect, and appreciate the sufferings and noble sacrifices people make.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 3,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get that many views.

Last sembreak, I went to the beautiful island(s) of Coron in Palawan together with my family and other family friends. It was only a quick trip but it was super fun and relaxing. The islands and beaches of Coron are truly amazing to see, I was really awed by the beaches and the huge rock formations all over. I’d definitely go back there soon if I need to get away from all the hustles of my real life. Haha.
I have a lot of photos, mostly me. =))) These were grabbed from Tito Nuf, Ate Dot, and my parents!
Where we stayed (Asia Grandview Hotel)
Waiting for our limos (aka tricycles)
Cute tricycles and fiesta banners
Lunch was awesome
On our first day, we went to the Kingfisher Resort which was at the center of the sea. Lucky for us, no one was there so we had the whole house(?!) to ourselves.
Perfect for siesta
On our way to the mangroves to look for kingfishers and monkeys. Sadly, there were none because everyone was so noisy haha
The moon was so pretty
