Happy 6th Year Anniversary To My Blog!

Photo grabbed from @mikaelamartinez' instagram

When I started this blog “From the Earth to the Moon” in August 2009, I had unconsciously bound myself into an agreement of writing and sending posts into the space.  And on this 6th year anniversary of mine, I realized that those Aliens aren’t real because no one read them. No one commented. Or if ever there’s a slight chance that Aliens ever live, they are incapable of speaking or giving comments and suggestions, extremely silent.


The reason I chose to connect myself to the moon by pulling a string attached to it and name this blog for what it is now was that I had these childhood dreams of writing books for children and articles on magazines. BUT I was told that my dreams won’t get me anywhere. Writing books is CUTE but you’ve got bills to pay. If you want you can write everything down, here and there. But you don’t need to show it to anyone; you can keep it to yourself. Burn it, as you wish.

And they were right, my dreams won’t take me anywhere but it can fly me to the moon, if not to Singapore and it’s kind of the same place, where everything is dreamy. Hahaha kidding!

But seriously.

After 6 years of publishing not so perfect 95 posts (feel free to check my grammarJ), 1 extraterrestrial follower, 7,405 page views, and 5 hardly earned comments from beautiful angels on Earth, how far we’ve come? Not quite far, just a humble free trip to Singapore worth 10k baht by the no. 1 low cost airline, Airasia and an unexpected collaboration with one of the leading online fashion website in Southeast Asia, Zalora Thailand.

This isn’t HUGE as inventing the Facebook or as famous as BreakMyStyle or ThirstyThought (I can’t afford to be a high-maintenance fashion blogger btw) but who knows, I’m just a short little person with pocket full of dreams, BIGGER than I had 6 years ago. #librengmangarap

Beyond the sky is the limit, indeed! Thank you God! #blessed

Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron Review: Is it worth it?

I started using flat irons since I was 18 years old (well, that was 12 years ago?) and I’m amazed at how the industry of hair straighteners had come. Man, I think we're missing out on some great deal. Flat iron over the years, We all know the humble beginnings of hair comb or some may call them hair thongs which are made of two rods heated to straighten the hair. I never get to use this one as I was introduced to the second generation of hair straighteners and that was using a standard home clothes iron. Nah, I mean the basic flat irons made with metal plates and few heat settings. Not until the early 2000s when I saw this model with ceramic plates that most people use today. Ceramic is by far the most popular material for this product as it is both inexpensive and actually safer compared to the clothing iron or heating rods back in days. Depending on your hair type, ceramic plates are believed to lock in moisture and protect hair color. But with a lot of this model

How To Instantly Add Luxury To Your Wardrobe

As you have probably guessed, I literally spend a good part of my day shopping online. Yep, when major sales popped out, I'll stop what I'm doing to catch a glimpse on which of those pieces look good on me. To the point, I recently spent a morning scrolling through a dozen items on shopping websites. Making me the perfect target consumer when it comes to social media marketing ads. Ha!

Weekend Well Spent

Last week was kind of breezy to the point where I thought it was already Friday when I’m only in the middle of my week, which is odd because when I’m excited for something and I’m looking forward to it every single day, it makes my whole month moved into a slow motion and I’m like bored to death. Gladly, my weekend didn’t pass by so sudden that I got to enjoy it with people dearest to my heart to the fullest. I love weekends so much that I decided not to care about laundry or cleaning the house (sort of) but just spend the whole two days enjoying the cold weather which means more sleeps and longer walks to the mall. Last weekend, we ate breakfast in our PJ’s, had brunch in the street food shops, enjoyed salmon and some surprisingly affordable tasty Japanese cuisine, scored some discounts on baby clothes and winter shirts, did some window shopping, had a half dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for dessert and just cuddled and sang nursery rhymes at the top of our lungs.
