Lately, things are sailing away from where they are supposed to be. Plans are scattered; directions seem to be very ambiguous. I am struggling. And it is hard. I made major decisions that felt quite fast. I thought I was lost -- only to find out that the Universe is just steering me to different roads, different trails. Perhaps, Robert Frost is right when he said, 'I took the one less traveled by. And that has made all the difference.' Let's just be cheerful treading the paths laid in front of us. Who knows it's just fate showing us different options?

I deal with all of my imperfections and consider them unique aspects of what make me, ME. So should you. You should view your somewhat obnoxious laugh as special and therefore making it special to someone else. We spend so much time trying to hide our less than perfect quirks instead of embracing them, that we lose who we are. How are you supposed to be you and be with someone who appreciates and loves everything about you if you’re not being true to yourself.Be yourself and make no apologies for it. EMBRACE IT!

At some point in my life, when I was younger I dreamed of creating a life in this country. But when the time I landed here for a holiday, murag na hadlok ko sa gastos ug tax. Hehhehehe. Nevertheless, it is a beautiful country to live in.

At first Fes is overwhelming, even during calmer Ramadan - its walled medina, with medieval Marinid architecture, vibrant souks and old-world atmosphere. But it’s beautiful.
Life is the only race that requires no speed to win. All you have to do is walk. Face every problem, deal with it and never look back; that's how you win.

The labyrinth that is Fes is orherworldly. With more than 9,000 unnamed alleys and 40,000 dead ends! And hardly any GPS, one is bound to get lost! It’s crazy, but also crazy beautiful!

But nothing ever really felt the same
But you left a space
Where everything reminds me of your face"
