Weekly Gratefulness List (August 28 to September 3, 2011)

| September 8, 2011

I’m sooo boring! Didn’t really do much of anything the past week so this list is going to be short. Nevertheless, I’m grateful for: – Divisoria shopping – a bit of decluttering You might have heard that I’m chubby now. I finally found it within myself to give away the pair of jeans that couldn’t [...]

My June Purchase: Shoes

| June 27, 2011

You may have heard of my one-item-a-month policy. I now present you with my June purchase. RMB50 (about P350). Thumbs up? *They are so much cuter in real life. My (lack of) photography skills do not do them justice!

The One-Item-A-Month Project

| June 15, 2011

So I’ve been thinking. I pretty much have enough clothes and shoes and bags and accessories to last me many many years. So I’ve been thinking. Yet of course I would want to reward myself with pretty little things from time to time. So I’ve been thinking. Seeing how I had successfully completed the four-month-long No [...]

Weekly Gratefulness List (March 6 to 12, 2011)

| March 16, 2011

Not a very eventful week. Looked like all I did was work! Thankfully, there are still some highlights: – big Korean lunch to start the week (Picture here) – shopping at Rockwell: got a pair of shoes and a nice travel pouch from Muji – decluttering to end the week  

How to become a genius

| February 26, 2011

I am once again on a decluttering mode but before I give away some of my stuff, I thought it wise to reread (in the case of the magazines) as much of them as I can. In the course of my rereading, I came across an article about Piotr Wozoniak, the creator of SuperMemo. (The article [...]

The “No Clothes Buying Policy”

| October 5, 2010

As a consequence of buying too many clothes while in Vietnam, I am enforcing a “no clothes buying policy” on myself. Ideally, it would last for a year but Facebook does not seem to agree. It only allows a four-month duration for an event. Which is just as well since not buying any piece of [...]

Weekly Gratefulness List (June 27 to July 3, 2010)

| July 3, 2010

Technically, a part of this post should have been included on last week’s list. Specifically one-half of the last weekend, which had been most gratifying in its simplicity. – Saturday morning was spent running errands at DLSU, returning my toga and getting a copy of my class pictures. I also dropped off the hard copies [...]

Weekly Gratefulness List (August 9-15, 2009)

| August 14, 2009

So I thought I’ll start the day with my list. It will hopefully get some of the crank out from my great caffeine withdrawal. Plus I have my period so you must understand what an effort this is going to be… Nevertheless, there will always be things to be happy for. For this week, these [...]

A Gift of Words and Images

| July 4, 2009

As previously mentioned, I am giving away my used books as presents. I figured the books will have a much better fate with other people than sitting on my shelves gathering dust. Now that college buddy Ronna is moving back to Fiji, I thought of giving her Andew Motion’s collection of poems titled “Salt Water” [...]
