I admitted to myself just a few minutes ago that I write Life Lately posts when I’m too uninspired, unmotivated, or just plain lazy to document the actual things happening in my life lately. I also feel like I’m just in a slump right now. I wake up, exercise (sometimes), get ready, go to work, get back, eat, and sleep. Again and again and again. On the weekends, I go out to eat or for church then back again to just sit in my bed and just waste my time on my phone or just sleeping. I haven’t been in this lazy stump for a while and I’m not sure how much longer it will last. Lol @ how my social media accounts is portraying that my life is exciting and amazing at the moment.
I did some changes on my blog for the past two weeks, if you haven’t noticed. The biggest one is the blog make-over. I had my blog theme changed – huge thanks to Kai! I changed my blog timeline from Lifestyle and Travel Blog to Personal and Travel Blog. I messed around with a few things here and there like my sidebar, header, footer, and about me page – but yes, some things will still be changing. What you haven’t seen is that I will also be changing a few things about my future (and even past) contents. I’m going for a more personal route now, and I’m not just gonna be talking about my major travels now. So, buckle up, friends, my future posts will be like… this one.

Oh, VISAs. The bane of travelers hailing from third world country. Wouldn’t it be better if we just have to show proof of financial standings and a return ticket to visit any country we want? Alas, that is not the case. Applying for a VISA is a tricky business. There’s never a guarantee you’ll have one; people who have hundreds of thousands in the bank and return tickets still get denied. Which is why I was a wreck when it was my turn to apply for a Korean VISA; the first VISA application I’ve ever done.
Fortunately, my VISA was approved. Yey! And so were my companions. I’ve heard Korean VISAs are one of the easiest to get, but I also know of people who got denied one. I figured I’ll start my Korean travel series with a guide on how to get a South Korea Tourist VISA for Filipino employees.
It’s been three months since I visited Korea but I still laugh at the memories we have created at that country. It’s already unforgettable since this is where I traveled solo for the first time – even if it was only for a short 1.5 days, but even more so when my friend and her family arrived. You’d probably seen her around in my blog since I travelled to Hong Kong and other local places with her.
Like most people, I tend to list down ‘resolutions’ or ‘goals’ every start of the year. And like most people, sometimes I go overboard and write down a bunch of things that just wouldn’t be all accomplished within a year. Or things that are far too vague that I have no idea how it would be considered ‘accomplished’. So for the past few days of 2017, I listed and re-listed my goals, getting them down to a pretty manageable and realistic count. I’m pretty happy with the end result and am excited to work on them for this year.
