Haru’s Thoughts: Very Grateful for Today (and for Everything!)

No. This is not a farewell to whatever post, ok. Just to keep it clear.

I’ve been out for a while yet again. Life had a whirlwind of surprises in store for me so far. In a way that it made me very preoccupied – Family, Work, Anime and MMORPG! If I could only have more time within the day.

But given with the life’s hullabaloos, it is important that you stop and smell the roses, and be grateful for the things you have. Like this!

Haru’s Thoughts: Motolite’s Express Hatid Experience

So I have been in a hiatus for 2 months after purchase of my domain, and then I blog about car batteries!?!?!

You see, I’m having car issues for 1-2 years already. I guess my good o’l car is, for lack of a creative description, old. Oh but we did have good days. Anyway, this morning, I tried starting my car, and it won’t budge! Luckily, my folks won’t be using their car today so I get to borrow it. Benefits of staying at your folk’s home. However, they will be using that car tomorrow.  The other car, well, it’s manual transmission – which would take me A WHOLE LOT OF TIME to understand that thing! I have 9 hrs to re-learn, assuming I won’t be sleeping. Therefore, I HAD to get mine fixed when I arrive home, after work and some chores. With that, I get to try out, not because I want to, rather, I HAD TO, the 24-hr service anywhere of Motolite, which they call EXPRESS HATID. Reader, hold your horses before you order. This is only applicable to Manila and Key Cities.

 

Sometimes, I think that my car is alive and knows exactly when to act up. But hey, a little rain in your parade is bound to teach you a thing or two in the real world. 😉

NOTE TO READER: This is text-heavy since I didn’t take ANY PHOTOS. They had fixed it at 9:50PM, against the garage light, all thanks to the hood of my car.

Haru’s Thoughts: New Domain! New Layout!

Happy New Year! I know I’m late again. I’ve been crazily preoccupied these days so I try to be as free as possible so I could play Guild Wars write. Hehehe. I have so much stuff in my mind that is non-work related.

 

Take it as me being FREE! Yeah, there had been changes now which I am somewhat grateful for. But before life in general, I did accomplish (though 13 days late) to get myself a domain! Yahoo!

 

Why change a domain? Because…..

NOTE TO READER: If you’re after some reviews, please refer to the previous or next post. This is just me sharing life. Oh and this will be text heavy.

Anime: Uta no Prince-Sama: Maji 1000% Review

So over the holidays, I did absolutely NOTHING but play Guild Wars 2. I finally was able to finish all chapters of the Living Story Season 2 so far. I think there is a patch by Jan 13, so I better check it out by then.

 

This weekend, I watched STRAIGHT Uta no Prince-Sama: Maji 1000% (known as UtaPri). I loved it so much that there was intensity 4-ish earthquake that early morning (I watched from 10PM-4:30AM), around 3AM, I didn’t feel it!

2014 in review

I just thought of sharing this. 🙂

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 82,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 4 days for that many people to see it.

Nature Republic: Shine Blossom Rose Blusher in #03 Pink Rose Review

Hello again! It’s been ages since I last posted, but it doesn’t mean I haven’t been trying stuff. I may have not been hauling make-up for this year, but my focus was on food! And because of that, I did gain some weight. 😦 But my post today isn’t about food. Still about make-up!

 

One of my hauls in Nature Republic was the Shine Blossom Rose Blusher. I picked the #03 Pink Rose just because the SA said it was the best seller among the blushers.???????????????????????????????

Good morning guys! This weekend is Blogapalooza weekend!

Oh yes I’m coming, with my friend over at All Things Random and Quirky’s flyonthewall. Over 700+ bloggers have confirmed.

 

It’s a good thing the event got postponed initially so I was able to manage to convince myself to come.

 

 

See you there perhaps? I might not cover the event after since I guess 700+ other bloggers will be covering it anyway? Hahahaha!

New Restaurant! Samgyupsal King Review


Good evening guys! All thanks to the long weekend, it had given me a chance to post.

 

 

I spent this weekend with my family. Today, we went to this new restaurant, as suggested and to fulfill the promise we’d eat out in this Korean resto found few days ago. 1 out of nth number of promises fulfilled. Lol.

 

 

 

We ate at Samgyupsal King along Dolores, McArthur Highway, City of San Fernando Pampanga. This is their first restaurant! Plus, it’s packaged with a mini mart at the side.

It’s been so long since I last posted! It’s like as if the world is against me posting –  at least my working life. It’s voiding me of a lot of things, even my family life! So annoying.
