    Review: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

    The first time I saw this book was around the year it was released. Goodreads reviews and book bloggers seem to be raving about how good it is, but I did not read reviews to have an unbiased opinion about this book. It has been in my TBR for the longest time and moved up the list because Michelle Hodkin was coming to Manila for a book signing event at Fully Booked. Due to lack of funds, I had to decide whether or not to spare money for this event, hence reading it ahead and finding out if I would like it. Disclaimer: Using links from this post to buy a…

    Wishing You A Very Happy Christmas

    Hey, how’s it going? It’s December 24th and while everyone is celebrating Christmas Eve, I’m having fruit salad given by the neighbor in front of the laptop and TV, blogging about whatever. Ha! My mom and I don’t really do the Noche Buena thing unless we are invited to have dinner with her friends’ family. Otherwise, we’re content with just sitting at home watching movies while mom plays on her iPhone and I either play on my smartphone or browse Facebook. See, we’re big on multi-tasking.

    Welcome to My New Work Life

    Last February, I  made a decision to resign from my job as a Local Store Marketing Coordinator of Gerry’s Grill, my last day would have been March, but I ended up getting offered to work at the head office as a Digital Marketing Assistant. I gave it some thought and accepted the job even though I haven’t seen the formal offer. Some would say it’s not a very good decision because the head office is in the North and I’m from the South. The travel time and expense would kill me. Plus, I don’t even know how much I’m getting paid or what the benefits are. It didn’t matter. I have…
