Lovely cherry blossoms in my recent travel to Hokkaido, Japan. 😍💕🌸 


They are just too beautiful 🌸😍

She has it all

She’s been there all the time. Her famous smile unwavering. Her stare, oh so captivating! Maybe you need to take a shot or two.. Or maybe more.. to show your everyone back home that you’ve seen the most visited, most parodied work of art, and most talked about painting in The Louvre. You put up your camera and started to shoot. (heads of other tourists pops into view) Uhh excuse me, I need to get closer. No flash please!

Ah yes! That’s Mona Lisa, the half-painted portrait of a woman by non other than Leonardo da Vinci, the Italian artist. Bravo Maestro! 🙌

I was blessed to be able to visit the majestic Louvre in Paris and of course, Mona Lisa was on my itinerary! 

Selfie with Mona Lisa. Perfect shot. No one beside me. No hands, head or any other body part of tourists in this photo. Hahaha. Successful selfie indeed.  


Compared to other huge paintings inside the Louvre, Mona Lisa’s portrait was just small and of course, heavily guarded… You have been warned. 

Anyway, very interesting portrait. Had a wonderful experience too!💁

Happy Chinese New Year!!!

新年快乐! 恭喜发财! 全家安康! 万事如意!

Wishing everyone a prosperous new year!

More success, happiness and love! ❤️❤️❤️

Happy green tea drinking!

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.

Just because one man took a stand

 Meet Tim Tebow. An American football quarterback for the New York Jets of the national Football League (NFL). He is known for sharing his Christian faith with fans and in clinics, hospitals, market places, schools, and orphanages.

Why was he is so special? This is what he did: 

JOHN 3:16 New King James Version (NKJV)

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. You and your household. May we be like Tim Tebow, not afraid to share our faith in God to others. Let us spread the good news of God’s love, touch lives and be an inspiration to the people around us GOD LOVESYOU:) 

Bonding time

At last, I was able to bond with my friends Erica and Jacqueline. We went to Jacq’s house to sleep (because we’re always sleepy in the afternoon) but ended up talking, laughing and uploading photos in FB until 5PM just in time for us to prepare for Youth Night. It was such a great night! Singing songs, mingling with other youths in our church, having our dinner together -yummy foods like bbq, pizza, lechon (roasted pig), pancit malabon, spaghetti and cupcakes! And of course, the much awaited photo booth!

Here’s our cute photobooth pic! we love the hair accessories!

My batchmates!!! 🙂 Everyone tried to fit in the photo. HAHA

 WHAT HAPPENED?? haha! Goal: Show your face! *SQUISHY!!!*
