"I have lost a lot after quitting. I’ve lost quite a number of followers. My blog rank went down. I am no longer on the first page of Google search. I lost brands and collaboration opportunities. But I can say that it’s all okay. I might have lost my career in blogging, but I have eventually gained back my soul and happiness. I gained back the reason why I am blogging. And as I write this down, I can’t help but smile and look forward to what’s gonna happen next." Full story of what happened after I quit blogging: lessons on chasing dreams, finding happiness and figuring out your purpose now on (surprise!!) my blog! 😂 Writing this personal story is tough. 😭
Genuine - the first word that comes to mind while staring at this art. Being Real. Being Raw. Being You. Genuine people don't come around too often so If you find someone real enough to stay true, trustworthy, honest, can keep their words and someone who you can be anything with but still accept you, Keep them! Hold on to every genuine person you find. This generation has people driven with ego, money, and status. As a result, good souls are ruined daily. Keep your head up! And be conscious of the energy you give out and connect with. It's rare to find someone who isn't full of shit these days! 😉 #MondayReminder
"Strip down memory lane"
All the memories flashes back from the very first climb that I had last 2015 until this very moment that I am here at the top of the highest mountain in the Philippines. .
It was hard to battle the grueling long walks in the middle of scorching heat and cold/windy mornings, unlimited ascents/descents in the trail, facing almost 3km boulders of rocks and ofcourse to compose your emotions during this tough times.
I'll never forget this moment that I felt I'm on top and being surrounded with bigger dreams above. .
Here's to our dreams...that we may not easily give up on achieving them because we're hurt or tired but continue to be inspired and be an inspiration to others.

Water is deep sky-blue, plunging here is like diving into the abyss.

Blessed with 20 meters visibility during our dive with the awesome scuba team of Aquaholic. This is one of the best dive sites in Mabini Batangas. Corals are healthy and beautiful marine life to enjoy. Join us on our next dive :) 📽️ Jerry

🐘Day 8 NO TO elephant ride & show in THAILAND🇹🇭 better to pay more and go to a sanctuary that gives their freedom. Love it and I promise you’ll enjoy it rather than riding. 🐘Visit Maerim elephant sanctuary 🐘You know why you shouldnt ride??? Wild elephants won’t let humans ride on top of them. So in order to tame a wild elephant, it is tortured as a baby to completely break its spirit. The process is called Phajaan, or “the crush”. It involves ripping baby elephants away from their mothers and confining them in a very small space, like a cage or hole in the ground where they’re unable to move.
"get you under pink skies, i know exactly where we should go. cause i love the way your green eyes mix with that malibu indigo"
i put my playlist on shuffle and this song started playing as the thoughts of you also came in flashbacks. i remembered how you loved the beach while i loved the summits. it was like we were not on the same geographical map, but when the sky is in pretty hues on that horizon, that's where we met. at least. that's how i fell in love with this song. actually this was the first LANY song i heard and definitely my favorite. i guess you really loved this one, too. this could be our unofficial soundtrack, perhaps?
"talking under pink skies, i think our hearts are starting to show. and it's better, you and i, under pink skies"
LANY was still playing. this time, getting louder and louder. until i just caught myself smiling and daydreaming (even if it's already late at night) to what if when we would go their concert together, and when paul klein would sing the lines "we can work it out. you and i are meant to be together," then out of the blue, we would slowly hold each other's hand and look in the eyes as we sing together with the crowd to "this is how it's supposed to feel, i'm in love with how this feels." corny may it sound but that would probably be one of favorite concert moments... with you.
it's all fun and games until we suddenly stopped talking. i don't know what went wrong but it seemed like those cotton candy skies were covered with metal clouds each day of not talking to you until everything went gray then, slowly faded away. and who would have thought that a simple “hello” would just end with a painful “thank you and goodbye.” i guess neither of us would. i miss you already...

Taking a selfie in a whole new level.

No matter how many times I had flown, I feel like it's my first flight every single flight. I still get excited on going to new places or maybe even revisiting a familiar one. That also means I still get anxiety when there's turbulence or bad weather. #otbstories#outsidethebottle
The Puka Beach is a must place to go when you want to avoid the crowd of Boracay Island. 🦄🌊 Boracay Island will reopen again soon, Do you have any plans to visit one of the best beaches in the world? 🙌
Off the road, into the trees, and over boulders somewhere in Samar. Not exactly easy to get to but when the water looks like that would you regret the trek?

Solo traveling to Brunei was a whole different experience compared to solo traveling to other places. I was alone when I slept at the airport because no one else seemed to be doing it there. People stared. There were only a couple of travellers around. Buses and establishments closed early.
Still, the places I visited as well as the people I met were beautiful.
It was different, but definitely memorable.
