Hindi Makakarating Kung Hindi Aalis :)

So I won invites to the premiere night of Sakaling Hindi Makarating. And I'm just so thankful to SM Cinema for helping me tick this off my list. Since it was released last year, I've been wanting to see it. Aside from the good reviews, I was also looking forward to the movie locations. 

I had great expectations, and I'm so glad they were met. :)
Bonus pa that I got to see Pepe Herrera and Alex De Rossi up close and personal. 

Hindi na lang ako nagpa-picture kasi may kasama na rin akong celebrity at sa kanya pa lang, sobrang na-starstruck na ako. (I'm talking of Paolo Santos, of course! ♥)
Anyway, the movie will make you fall in love with the Philippines. There's really so much beauty in this little archipelago. The movie will inspire you to explore the hidden gems of our beloved country. I love that it also featured the local culture. May trivia bawat lugar. And I assure you, mapapasabi ka talaga ng "it's more fun in the Philippines!" At mapapahanap …

Ikigai: The "Why"

Ever since the word "ikigai" was introduced in the Belle De Jour Power Planner several years back, I have always thought about it. But it was only just last year when I decided to really spend time discovering it. I signed up for Ms. Dar's workshop during the BDJ Fair but even after that, I still haven't found that one word or phrase or whatever which I could consider a solid ikigai. Until today. 
When I decided that I would still go for the Belle De Jour Power Planner this year (because there are a lot of other good planners out there, you know; and I had three great planners to choose from at that time, all of which I got for free), one of the first pages I filled out was the Ikigai page. But I was not able to finish it. Last January 12, I had my 2017 BDJ Power Planner blessed by Fr. Benedict. And it was only after that I did fill out the other pages. 
Today, I was finally able to discover my ikigai. :) 

Begin Again

There's just so much that I want to say I really don't know where to begin. 
My last blog post was last year! Can you believe it? Oh how time flies! 
I've always wanted to do this - sit down, relax, and write to my heart's content. According to Buddha, "there are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth... not going all the way, and not starting."
So here I am beginning. Again. 
I always say that writing is my first love. It is. And I think it will be my forever love. I've been blogging ever since blogging started but I have never been consistent. Well maybe I was during college but all I came up back then were immature posts. You know, so emo. :)) 
When I started this blog, I told myself that I'm going to be more responsible and mature. I have to act my age (even though I look a lot younger ;p). So I wrote reflections, prayers, and basically the title of this blog, STUFF THAT MATTERS (at least to me). 
Last year, I went through a lot. Imagi…
