2016 in a Nutshell

2016 is a crazy ride, and whoever disagrees might be a bit loco. 2016 was honestly just a mix of ‘!!!’ and ‘!!!!!!!!’ for me. I personally didn’t have anything bad that happened to me this year but the politics around the world just drove me crazy all year-round. I don’t even want to expound on that since I am on a good mood today.

2016 is a year of travel for me. I’ve taken three major trips and a few minor ones – and I also watched my bank account depleting every time. Lol. I’ve got lost for more than an hour in Hong Kong with my friends, got cornered by a guy in a 7-Eleven branch, visited a place covered in fog for the very first time, went on a foodtrip around Singapore, finally gotten to ride the roller coaster at USS, hoarded lots of clothes at Cotton On, tried surfing, travelled solo (!!!), ate spicy food willingly, experienced autumn, run after the last train at Seoul, had the best barbeque meal ever, rode the world’s second steepest wooden roller coaster, and a whole lot more!

Life Lately: Crazy Times!!


You know what? If I promise myself I’ll get back to blogging, then I always end up breaking that promise so I’m not promising anyone anything. LOL. The past few months of my inactivity has been crazy as hell. There’s been a lot of good times, bad times, and in between. I had many of moments that made me laugh and smile, moments that made me sad for the first times since a long time, and even moments that made me pissed as heck. See? It’s been a crazy ride, and shout-out to my BFFs and Twitter friends for being along those crazy times. Now, I’m bringing my stories to my blog – except for one that will never be mentioned again, lol. I missed you guys too, and your stories.

How to Really Know Someone Vol. 2


It’s been more than three months since my last installment for this series and I’m here to rectify that. I found this tag through Corinth and the list of all the fun questions can be seen here. I like that the questions really makes me stop for a moment and think, and it also shows the brains, er thoughts, of me that’s not usually seen from my usual travel and personal posts. Except, maybe, you’ll get a hint of it from what I posts on twitter.

Life Lately: Where Have I Been?

Where Have I Been; Richel Goes Places

It’s been a little over a month since my last blog post entry and I swear, I’m not in a ditch somewhere as proof of this post. As I’m typing this, it’s 6:18 AM on a Sunday and I’m in bed, thinking about things. I’m thinking about the plans I have with my family later. I’m especially thinking about eating at Frankie’s when we’re in SM Aura because, I swear, they have the best chicken wings ever. Ever.

Personal Singapore

Singapore Haul


If you follow me on twitter when I was on my trip in Singapore, you’d remember how much I gushed on how there are plenty of S$5 shorts and shirts from Cotton On. That costs PHP150 when converted to pesos and the cheapest Cotton On shirts being sold in Manila costs PHP400. Like, what a steal, right? Despite myself, I ended up spending a lot of my budget on clothes. No regrets though, since I love them all. Here’s what I got from my Singapore trip.
