Spa Day!!!

I’m so, soooo looking forward to a day at the nail spa soon 🙂 A few weeks ago, a blogger friend, Zoan, sent me this little present and I can’t wait to get it done! I’ve just been so busy I haven’t had the time to do so.  Perhaps I shall do this right before teacher training so I have pretty hands and feet when I practice haha. Let’s see 🙂

A Trip to Healthy Options

When I turned vegetarian, I had to look for new places to go to get food that suits my new lifestyle. When I was in the mall one day, I decided to finally swing by Healthy Options, a store known to focus on providing customers with better choices for a healthier lifestyle. That store, along with places like Dimensione and those famous cigar stores (or should I say stalls?) are places I never used to go to because I don’t use their products. However, I realized I was missing a lot! Well, at least in the case of Healthy Options. I bought a bag of couscous and several other items. The only thing I wish the store had were lower prices! Haha. But yeah, I do know that in the long run, this would have been worth-while expenses 🙂

168, 168, 168!!!!

I’m heading off to 168 in a little bit and I must say, I’m sooooo excited. It’s been a long time since I’ve been there and so making this trip is gonna be exciting. I’m glad the weather today looks kinda nice…not too rainy, not hot. I hope it stays this way all day! In any case, I do intend to buy some preschooley supplies and stuff I can use for yoga. I also hope to find some glass bottles for a project I’m gonna be working on soon. Wish me luck! 168 here I come!!!

For the Love of the Kindle

I used to be a voracious reader. However, because of time constraints and the fact that life happened (haha), reading had to take a back seat.  The only time I really have time to read would be in the bathroom! However, because of my thesis, I started to need to read again. This is how I discovered the beauty of ebooks and reading these in various gadgets. It sure eliminated the need to print out mountains of journal articles the way I used to! Further, the Kindle app reminded me how much I love to learn. It’s nice how this particular gadget makes learning so much more accessible to people like me, who, in all honesty, may be too cheap to spend on expensive books that end up collecting dust in my shelf. Hehe. Besides this app, technology has really made studying much easier. For example, there are online gre prep courses/programs available. Also, a number of my friends are taking online certificate courses from universities abroad. Something that, ordinarily, would not be accessible to people from our part of the world. Amazing, right?
