{relationship} My way to communicate with his family for the 1st meet-up

Previously mentioned I went to Manila and join his aunt’s bday party in a beach resort, and that’s my 1st time to meet his aunt / uncle’s family (they are the bro and sis of his mom, so really important to leave a good impression!!).

Alcohol makes people happy and relax, so when I arrived, I asked if there’s any beers (I like beer very much and he knows it hehe), and then we talked while drinking, for few hours. 

We picked Red Horse, a strong beer contains 6.9% alcohol.

And then I found they are so so nice, like the typical Filipino which always brings smile, and I opened myself, even talking about my salary and if I’m ready for marriage…

Food sharing is also a good way to make a happy atmosphere, especially for food-hunter Filipino!

Showing caring is important as well, since one of uncles needed to drive and pick another uncles’ family up there and he had drunk some beer and whisky with us, that’s why I worried if he could drive properly as I also have driving license as well and I could accompany he to go so there’s someone to support. And to tell aunt “last cigarette”, and uncle “dont drink too much”.

Of course there are so many ways to have a good start with his family, just bear in mind that to use my own mind and soul to communicate with them, not a fake smile could build up relationship. 



deal with the negative harsh moment!

when you look back those bad things happened on you, you would definitely think oneself is silly as those stuff doesn’t worth to make yourself that emotional, turns out you could know you are getting something back, much valuable.

frankly speaking, there are ups and downs starting from the beginning of 2016. i am now recovering from heartbreaking and disappointing moment, and starting to make my social life back to normal. there is a man told me that life is beautiful and now i always grasp the positive vibe tight, even though he is another one to make me disappoint… i’m ok if he is not the one.

and below is the my usual practices of dealing with the negative harsh moment.

still remember the bygone euro 2016, i cried like a dog when germany is lost in the semi-final, ozil’s heartbreaking moment captured by the photographers made me more sad (photo credit:


best to accompany with beer. i could fall asleep easier, and my mind and body could be more hyper and relax, and forget those stuff… for a while. or in the opposite way it makes you cry much and then could sleep because of tired.


in it is raining, best to go to the street without umbrella, and then walk slowly. somehow it is so refreshing. just ignore what others would think, you own your whole world. similarly, i would go swimming to refresh myself, a good excuse to use up excess energy to avoid overthinking and train up body. sports could also release endorphin as you know…

reading books, a productive way to make yourself better, usually i would read korean and german language books.

but i don’t share my unhappiness to friends and family. i believe no one could 100% understand how you feel and the difficulty i face, and i’m the only person who can fight back those stuff (cool, right? haha)

seems it is not possible to live positively in every secs, but being a 26-year-old lady, i should be mature enough to distract myself to focus on the good aspects, so as to be able to welcome the better one to come along. not quite possible doesn’t mean impossible, everything begins with a belief and determination, take action without excuse, otherwise i would look down on you (i’m an emotional cancer and i did it 🙂 )

here’s a song to recommend you all to get your dance vibe while listening, even though today is just thursday (happy thursday then!), go check out the youtube link.



do you have your own world-wide collection?

i like animal (although i’m too coward to touch them haha), so 2-3 years ago i have set a goal, to see the zoos and aquariums all over the world. and here’s the places i have already been to:

  • zoo: melbourne, perth, malaysia (forgot in which city)
  • aquarium: busan, osaka

i believe the list would be longer… just matter of time and money (hey! ticketing is not cheap!).


and then i think i have another collection now, that’s brewery! hell yeah i love beer more than any other drinks! and i have been to one brewery called “little creatures” in fremental, perth (omg i just searched about “little creatures” and found that this company just opened a new brewery/restaurant in hk! that’s too amazing and i’m gonna check this out alone! drink for all the fuckin’ memory in perth. no offense, i just think of the guy i met there).

i went the perth one after eating the fish and chips nearby, me and my sister went there for a drink. i went to perth on june and the weather was so perfect, i enjoyed the sun shine (but in door! haha the sun shine went through the window to reach my skin) and sister enjoyed using my iphone to take lots of lots of lots of selfie! you can also order some food there but we didn’t. before you order the drink, you can also try several beer in order to pick the one you like the most! such a good service, right?


besides travelling, i think i can share some beer review haha just a good reason to drink… and try some other beer but not stick into particular brand, probably best to begin with the new season of bundesliga (german football matches)! anyone supports bayern munich here? haha i love german football team, so i really like mesut özil, manuel neuer and a rising star called julian draxler.

ps, you know i don’t usually update wordpress on week day but there is a typhoon in hk right now, so probably i don’t need to work tomorrow morning =P pls gimme this valuable week day off from work, i’m physically headache now and should be on bed 2 hours ago but now still… net-surfing!


relationship, travel

have you met any gentle housemates?

i lived in my sister’s house in balcatta, perth. it is a suburb area which takes around 25mins to the city centre by bus. of course she is renting the house and living with a 50-something years old man who is a police (but somehow he doesn’t need to work everyday and i saw him keep watching the tv or sleeping during the period i visited haha). we didn’t have much interaction until the last night i was drinking beer alone in the living room and then he came back from the pub. “oh you are drinking again! you’re just back from pub!” i started the rare conversation, and then we have talked for an hour. during the period, he made me cry when we were talking about my sister (she wants to study in perth which would make me feel a bit sad as she has already left home for 2 years). probably due to the chemical reaction of the beer, i became emotional and he is so kind to give me a tight hug for comforting me and suddenly, he walked back to his room and took a cap to me as a souvenir! that! is! so! amazing! and! touching! i have never met a person who could be so nice to me although we had just met for 6 days (yes less than a week!).

i met 2 men during this trip, one is the man whom i mentioned in the previous post, sat next to me on the plane from singapore to perth; and the other man is this housemate. both of them could make me burst into tears easily. isn’t it bad if devote too much on developing relationship with people? and isn’t it bad to develop relationship with foreigners as i would be too sad if i can’t keep contact with them. hell yeah the housemate is not using facebook or other social media…
