Hi everyone! I would like to greet you all a Happy Halloween — well to those celebrating it. To be honest, I grew up really not celebrating this occasion as I was brought up that way. But since pumpkins are really popular nowadays, I've decided to share with you a squash meal to make up for it. My mom loves cooking this meal because of the health benefits we get from it. Also, I'm really fascinated on how food blogging works and would certainly love to explore further!
Let's get our Jack-o-Lanterns ready and start the slicing!
Chainsmokers' new song entitled "All We Know" has been stuck on my mind lately. Here's the video so you can listen to it.
Hi everyone! This is a post going to be about my birthday last Monday; specifically the food on the table that day. It's been years that I was dreading the day I'd be 20. If you know me personally, or if you're someone closest to me, then you'd understand why. I really don't understand why I automatically felt that way but my 20th didn't turn out that bad after all. The night before my birthday, we ate chocolate ice cream and watched the movie Me Before You. That film was incredible and at the same time, I also have a little of a love-hate relationship with the author for making such a tragic plot. Uggghh. The tears I was supposedly going to shed so I'd be a little emotional for leaving my teenage years behind, was all used up because of the movie. So when the clock ticked 12 at midnight, I was crying too much for Will choosing to die leaving Clarke alone. Forgive me for being such a spoiler but you're surely going to cry if you haven't watched the film yet.
Anyway, here's how my day went: We didn't have car so we didn't go out or roamed somewhere else aside from our house. We stayed in and my mom just cooked some yummy Flipino food to make up for it. You know, I'm not the one who'd necessarily want grand celebrations or something expensive. What makes my birthday a better one is when people remember it that makes my day a lot more special. I've had loads of greeting on Facebook and on Twitter too. I was also extremely happy that day as I hosted #beechat on Twitter. There were lots who greeted me over there. Thanks to Charlene!
Also, I've been really eating so much and decided that this post would be a shout-out to the food we gobbled up. Here are some of the photos. I tried to be as good as a food blogger but obviously I'm not good enough, forgive me!
Hello! The photo above was the flowers I got from a kid's mom in the last summer camp I've joined. Cool, right? There were problems that came up the past week that my family's really worried about things and how to solve them. We haven't attended church last Friday as we had no car so we just watched the service via live streaming. It was okay but it's still different to be at the actual place itself.
Anyway, here's my Sunday Currently entry for today..
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. It's the classic book that we're studying on now and I'm glad we came across it. Also, I'm done reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. I really fell in love with the story

this time I get to write this post and the new theme I chose for my blog. I got really afraid at first because it didn't seem to be responsive on phones but thankfully, I got to ask Weebly for help and they did!
a really happy life, free of stress and pressure
a good movie to watch!
a bit anxious as it's my birthday tomorrow. I don't know what to feel or am I just over-reacting and all. I just hope that there will be answers to my prayers asap
That's it! Hope you like it :) It's a bit boring but I love writing for this..

Hello! The photo above was taken last January 2015 at the Miracle Garden, as we celebrated New Year with our family / relatives. Anyway, today has been pretty hectic for me. After home study, we went straight to Sharjah Public Diary to borrow some books and taught piano/guitar lessons to our friends also residing in Sharjah. I'm totally drained because I haven't had enough sleep last night for some unknown reasons. Nevertheless, I'm genuinely thankful that I got to borrow "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho from the library. I have always been wanting to read the book and so even if my eyes are bulging out because of sleepiness, here I am, done with a few pages; still managing to write this blog and read even more.
Here's my Sunday Currently entry to keep you updated..
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte and Emma by Jane Austen.
The first book is actually really easy to understand while I must say that the following two books are a bit of a challenge as they're all Classic novels. It certainly needs more effort to be able to decipher every word, but as I go on everyday, I become more interested in the plot and the superb writing as well.

the time we spent at the library earlier! Nothing beats the silence and the calm atmosphere while being surrounded with books.
a good night's sleep; I would absolutely want to get some uninterrupted slumber.
God's given wisdom to decide whether we (my family) keep fighting this battle or we just let it go and move on.
accomplished for being able to write this without the feeling of laziness even if my eyes are literally about to fall. I just don't want to sleep in the late afternoon as I won't be able to sleep right away tonight. So instead, I tire myself even more and get the much needed deep sleep that I desire! hahaha
There you go, guys! Have a nice day slash night. . .
I live an ordinary life; striving and making it work in the giant sandpit aka Dubai. My life isn't perfect (I wish it was!) But I guess there's something about the imperfection in my journey that makes it worth the write and share. I believe that we don't have to have everything figured out because if we do, a lifetime won't be enough.
