Frozen’s Olaf

I can’t believe it! Until now, kids are crazy with Disney’s Frozen! But who can blame them? The characters are so cute and the story is beautiful!

Everyone loves Olaf, the fun-loving snowman. He had some famous lines that makes us go “Awwwww”

Here’s our favorite quotes from Olaf:

“Love is putting someone else’s needs before yours.” ❤️ Ahhh yes. This is indeed true! Hihihi

“Some people are worth melting for” ❤️ OMG. This is just the best line ever! I’m sure you’ll all agree with me. 😍

“Winter is a good time to stay in and cuddle, but put me in summer and I’ll be a Happy Snowman!!!” ❤️ And everyone panics and says: “NO Way!!! He’ll melt!” Hahaha 😁

Sunset lover : Life is too short to miss out on being truly happy!

 I love taking sunset photos! Who wouldn’t anyway? I love the beautiful mixture of colors and these made me appreciate our God more. It is painted by the best artist in the world! Most of the time we are too busy to stop and just look outside our window or just simple look up, take a deep breath and relax. We’re too stressed out from work that we forget to find beauty in little things. This 2015 let’s focus more on the positive things happening to us! Let me start by sharing some of my sunset photos to all of you. 🙂

Happy green tea drinking!

tea time

Tea time with delicious moist and soft brownies from Becky’s Kitchen (Philippines)

It is said that drinking green tea has many health benefits. It has been used as traditional medicine in the Chinese culture for more than 4,000 years. Until now, green tea is still a popular drink especially in the homes of Chinese families and served in every Chinese restaurant. Mmmm.. I love free “in-house tea” from Chinese restaurants. I usually drink green tea instead of warm water when eating outside.

I drink green tea almost every day, during breakfast, lunch, snack time, and sometimes dinner. Some say that drinking tea in the evening will result in staying awake all night. I’m not sure if this is true though. 😀

Wondering what are the health benefits of drinking green tea?

Here’s a list of the benefits on why drinking green tea is good for you:

Regulates blood pressure

Its full of antioxidants

Lowers cholesterol

Gives healthy looking skin

Prevents diabetes

Prevents or lower risks of various types of cancer

Improves brain function

Lowers risks of having Alzheimer’s disease

Lowers risk of obesity

Kills bacteria and improves dental health

May reduce risk of heart disease

Beats stress

Boosts your energy

Believe it or not? Try it for yourself. Happy green tea drinking! Haha.

Dating a teacher is probably the best possible decision you can make for your personal life. Seriously! And, since the New Year is approaching and many singles are looking for love, we’re here to tell you teachers are actually regarded a one of the top professions to date (like single moms!), because they are, well, wonderful.

While professions like banking and law don’t score very high on the loveable factor, teachers, on the other hand, will have you, your family, friends and everyone in between, swooning. That’s just the kind of person who goes into the teaching field: the awesome kind.

Here are a few other reasons why trying to make a teacher your main squeeze should be one of your major goals for 2015.

1. Did someone say super summer vacations?

Teachers get the entire summer off, as well…

A photographer’s paradise

I’ve been patiently waiting for this day to come. I love traveling and taking photos and so visiting Burano Island in Italy is indeed a dream come true!

We rode a boat which can accommodate around 50 or more people to the island. It was cloudy but that didn’t stop me from exploring the beautiful island. It only rained after I took a lot of photos and was about to board the boat back to St. Mark’s Square -talk about good timing!

Burano Island is famous for its pretty-colored houses, cute windows and doors, decorated restaurants and of course, freshy-catched seafoods!

Burano Italy

Before exploring island, we had our late lunch at this beautifully designed restaurant called Trattoria Raspo De Ua. The restaurant is adorned with nets, boats and different local paintings from their walls to the ceilings! You’ll definitely feel the island vibe while having lunch! I was able to try their seafood risotto, fish lasagna, fried calamari and shrimps. Our tour director was “quite” right – we don’t need to have dinner after all! The serving portion was generous enough to keep us full throughout the day. We were allowed second servings too. However, the “always hungry me” gave in and ate dinner at some Chinese restaurant near our hotel. HAHAHA. XD

Well since this is an island, people living here need to have water boats, small boats or whatever you call it to go places, no cars allowed please. XD

Here’s a photo of a house with cropped windows: I did try my best to take a good shot of this. Really. Story behind this? I was in a hurry and I cannot step back further anymore because I’d fall into the water, hahaha so there. 😀

Hope you enjoyed the views of Burano Island as much as I did! ❤

Swansea Beach

It is summer time here at Wales, UK and I’m loving every minute of it! Had a long walk at the Swansea Beach. The longest beach walk ever in my life. Hahaha.. My legs hurt but it was such a great experience. Passed by a lot of seaweeds, weird-looking worms, pretty shells and crablets!

Trip to Kiyomuzu-dera temple, Kyoto Japan

Kiyomizu-dera temple- one of the most celebrated and popular temples in Kyoto. Kiyoi-mizu” 清水寺 means pure water.

Going to see the Kiyomizu dera requires you to climb up a long path. As you approach the Kiyomizu dera entrance, a lot of souvenir shops -left and right are waiting for you. You need to allot time if you want to visit all the shops there. 20140706-203758.jpg

20140706-203850.jpgAt last, was able to reach the entrance. This is the Deva Gate. *huff and puff* getting all tourist-y, I took this shot and saw the NO PICTURE sign afterwards. Ooops! But why? All tourists were taking photos anyway. Haha
20140706-203901.jpgThat’s me posing at the Kiyomizu-dera Stage just infront of the Main Hall. This was built using a special method, the pillars were assembled without using a single nail! Awesome isn’t?

20140706-204234.jpg“To jump from the stage of Kiyomizu” is an old Japanese saying which means “to do something daring” or “to take the plunge courageously”.

20140706-204413.jpgThe stage. Famous for its location overhanging a cliff. Down below you could see the Otowa Waterfalls.

20140706-205517.jpgStairs going down the Otowa Waterfalls!
20140706-205647.jpgAt the Otowa Waterfalls just beneath the Kiyomizu-dera stage. Here three channels of water from the spring of the mountain fall into the pond. According to local beliefs, each channel represents: 1 Health and Longevity, 2 Success in Love and 3 Wisdom and Knowledge. (Not in particular order)
A person can only choose one channel to drink because the Buddhist monk doesn’t want greedy people. So.. Choose wisely!! The water is also said to have healing properties too. 20140706-205816.jpgYoung and old people lined up to be able to get a drink.

People come to drink water from the falls by collecting it in long-handled tin cups. The tins cups are then placed in a ultraviolet machine for reheating.
