Things That Cheer Me Up


  1. Chapters. I do have this really bad bookstore habit in which every bookstore I visit I have this inexplicable urge to want to buy something. Like some time last year, I found the perfect planner (which is absurd because I don’t really use planners) and the perfect pink pen (I love pen-shopping) that goes with it. I wish I had a photo of them handy. And I also bought a colouring book for adults, which I now find a little too intricately detailed. 
  2. Korean Grill. I am a sucker for anything smoked (except the stuff that could put me to jail). Seriously. I can eat pork barbecue, smoked salmon, steak or grilled vegetables for the rest of my life and you won’t hear me complain. 
  3. Milk Tea. Wintermelon black tea with grass jelly, please. My interest in milk tea started when I was in university, and briskly formed into a regular routine around that time when school stress was at its peak. I remember how attached I was especially on those days that made me feel like a zombie because I had no sleep.  One sip was ahh, heaven. 
  4. Downtown. Maybe it’s the thought of wandering around, stumbling upon interesting things that excites me. I’ve been to downtown Toronto a couple of times already and it’s always fun. Cheap too.
  5. Fruit-picking. Cherries are my favorite to pick. I’ve never tried oranges or peaches, but I’ve seen pictures of orchards with those fruits and they look really nice.


  1. I can relate to #4, the only difference is between Toronto and the places I wander around Cebu Hahaha. But to be honest, it’s quite a relief and an antidote to the heart to atleast stand up and go out.

    1. So true…sometimes after a long week, wandering around, sans purpose is all you need. With milk tea on one hand, because you can never go wrong with milk tea. 😋😉
