“When you love someone,

you want what’s best for them,

and sometimes what’s best for them..

Isn’t you.”

– J.M. Darhower



You see it happening right in front of your eyes.

You hear it being said to you over and over again.

You feel your heart break into million pieces while your throat tightens into an impossible knot.

You can even taste your own tears running down your face now.

Yet you still listen to that tiny crack of voice inside your head that ever so softly whispers,

“It’s not true–it can’t be true.. Right?”

Letting Go

I looked at myself in the mirror today and suddenly had the urge to get a pair of scissors and just chop off my hair right then and there.

And so I did.

Looking at myself after my impulsive decision, I began to panic.

It’s way too short.

I looked around the floor. Hair everywhere–a lot of them.

I focused my gaze on the mirror again.

I looked more younger now. I feel lighter.

Along with my hair are the feelings I’m bottling up inside me.

I smiled.

I’m letting them go now.

I’ve let them go.

Siao Tea’s Classic Milk Tea ♡ | Milk Tea Review

My Milk Tea Rating: 5/5

I discovered this drink by chance when I was walking along the streets during Sinulog Festival in Cebu last January 20, 2019. It means that this post is long overdue. Apologies.

The Sinulog-Santo Niño Festival is an annual cultural and religious festival which is held on the 3rd Sunday of January in Cebu City, and is the centre of the Santo Niño Catholic celebrations in the Philippines. (via Wikipedia)

Going back, I saw a girl holding a bottle of water on one hand and a bottle of this milk tea on the other. I was skeptical because as per previous experience with bottled milk teas, the taste is just average, if not below, but I still gave it a try because.. Milk tea! LOL.

Mind blown! ♡

This to-go milk tea is super yummy, creamy and not watery whatsoever + you can definitely taste the tea!

This was priced at Php 80 for 300 ml which was acceptable considering it was during the festival.

While writing this post, I searched if Siao Tea has a physical shop that I can get more of their drinks from, but unfortunately it’s just via online to date.

Regardless, it still had great reviews in their Facebook and Instagram page + I saw they have different flavors as well! I’m assuming what I bought was their Classic flavor.

I’ll probably order soon and so should you! ♡

What do I bring to work everyday as a teacher?

  • Black medium-sized back pack
  • Big and small wallet for coins
  • Laptop

  • Coffee sachets and some snacks!
  • Hoodie or scarf

That’s basically it! I’m not extra, so I don’t really have much. Hahaha.
