Ate Andy! Try to visit Palawan. Coron, Palawan is really nice. :) But if you are willing to spend a lot, go to El Nido. and Pagudpud in Ilocos! 😊

Thank you! :) Yeah, I’ve heard such great things about El Nido, hopefully I’d have enough money for it :)

Hi Andy! How often do you workout in a week/month?

I work out an hour a day. :) Since I’m trying to reach my goal before my trip back to the Philippines, I figured I needed to work at it as much as I can.

I train for my college’s varsitiy and we very rarely use weights, haha. Anon is clueless.

EXACTLY. I mean I don’t even know how his/her logic made sense. Muscles get sore when they exert more effort than usual, you don’t have to lift to get sore… lol

thanks for the follow ate andy. I have loved dramachines since I started here on tumblr. I just feel really flattered. hihi. Stay awesome! Thanks again :-)

Thanks so much for the support! <3 

Hi andy. What are the differences studying at a university abroad from studying in PH? Thank you. :-)

I honestly wouldn’t know the difference because I was only at UST for about a month. But I guess from that I got that people slack off so much in the Philippines. Considering that it’s a necessary for someone in the Philippines to have a degree just to get an adequate job, some students there seem to treat it as a right (although it’s true that it is) rather than a privilege. Idk, the students here are much more focused on their goals. I think it has something to do with the fact that they have to pay off the student loans eventually, so they tend to not fuck up their grades and stuff. But just in general, people here are much more appreciative of the opportunity to be in University despite the fact that they literally do not need a degree to get a adequate paying job.

I didn’t join the giveaway but I like your blog! haha. I wish I had an iphone and was into make up or fashion, but I’m not. I’m better off admiring them than wearing them. I’m glad you did the giveaway too. Discovering your blog is gem <3

Thank you so much! I’m glad you like my blog. :) It makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside :3

do you think applying makeup everyday is healthy or necessary for a 16 year-old college girl? :)

I don’t think it’s healthy nor necessary. I, personally, don’t wear make-up everyday, specially when it’s just to go to school, because it’s such a hassle. The whole age thing (being 16) doesn’t really matter that much, I mean if you feel that you’d like to wear make-up then go ahead. Although, I think your face will appreciate it if you would give it some rest every once in awhile. What I do when I’ve been wearing make-up everyday for weeks, I schedule a week without make-up. It helps my skin breathe and it actually clears up all the blemishes. :)

I saw your abs post thing on twitter, i envy u.

oh thank you :) It’s not where I want it to be, but I’m just glad I’m making progress. Don’t envy, work at it girl! :)

thunderpopcola:

'Our story's epic.'

'Come back to me.'

'Always.'

Because I need this in my blog. GDI I just want to hold on to this show for as long as I can


Since turning 20 I&#8217;ve become somewhat more open to the idea of going out late at night to clubs and dancing my drunken nights away. Now, being hit on at a party/club/bar generally proceeds that same way, as I&#8217;ve experienced it. Maybe that&#8217;s because I&#8217;m Asian, maybe not. But I&#8217;m just going to assume that it is because I&#8217;m Asian.
PS I do not mean for this post to sound racist or anything, I mean I&#8217;m literally 100% Asian, so you know&#8230;No hate.
So guys tend not to care for reasons behind the fact that you&#8217;re out in a club. For the most part, all they really care about is the number of drinks they have to buy you so you&#8217;d go home with them or at least mack for awhile. This is a list of all the pick up lines that have been used on my friends and I every time we&#8217;re out. It&#8217;s a fairly short list, and after reading it, you&#8217;ll find out why I subtitled this post &#8220;Asian Problems&#8221;. The list is pretty much composed of variations from the first one:
Wow, you guys are Asian [like us] too?
Hi girls, how&#8217;s it going? We&#8217;re like the only other Asians in this place.
Hey, are you guys *insert Asian race here*?
We should totally stick together cause we&#8217;re Asian.
Do you like rice?
Okay, so the last one isn&#8217;t true. But it might as well be.

Can I be one of those Tumblr Girls now? loljk
Ola! What&#8217;s up? How&#8217;s it going? Well? That&#8217;s good to hear. :) Lol okay, but for real, I do hope you are okay. Okay is good.
So as usual I&#8217;ve been MIA for awhile. I mean guys, my last actual post was over a month ago. This is insane. I should really work on my consistency. Honestly speaking though, I rarely even know what to blog about. I&#8217;ve lost touch with the part of me that expresses her feelings openly. I&#8217;ve become ashamed of feeling vulnerable and &#8220;soft&#8221;. So rather than talking about my feelings and letting it all out there, I&#8217;ve become somewhat of a stoic in the emotional department of my life. I don&#8217;t mean to say that I&#8217;ve completely lost every form of emotion out of my body, no. I only mean to imply that I suppress all these feelings into a place where the alcohol can drown them out enough for me to at least live without suffocating.
Being a girl is horrible sometimes&#8230; most of the time. You&#8217;re expected to be vulnerable, soft, and feminine&#8212; like you can&#8217;t handle your own life. It&#8217;s stupid!

Anonymous asked:
youre proud of working out but you only use those 2lb weights then tell the world youre sore lol

Honey, clearly, you have no experience with the concept of working out. Not all programs require weights. Personally, I’ve only needed the 3lbs dumbbell and a medicine ball because all I’m trying to do is tone/define my abs. The only reason anyone would lift “heavy” weights (I.e. Do bench presses and such) is to gain strength and build their biceps and triceps— as in their trying to get bulky. Also, if you’ve gone through my recent Tumblr Ask answers, I enumerate the workouts that I do, and none of those require weights.

Before you call someone out on their personal achievements, maybe you should know what you’re talking about first. Because based on how petty and uninformed your comment was, I’m convinced that you’ve never workout in your life.


I haven&#8217;t been posting much lately because of work and school&#8230;. Actually, that&#8217;s a lie. I haven&#8217;t been posting much lately because it&#8217;s always -30 degrees celsius outside, which means I can&#8217;t take pictures about the things I want to post, and it also means that I have no fucks to give about the clothing I wear out. But still, there have been a couple of new things that are going right about my life, and I&#8217;d like to share them with you.
I got kitten last week, his name is Bean. He&#8217;s that little cute creature in the photo above. Isn&#8217;t he precious?
I have been working out for 2 months now, and I&#8217;m finally seeing some progress. I am really really proud of myself for not giving up on this. (Honestly speaking, I don&#8217;t want to look bad when I come home in May. Is that awful?)
I have numerous posts line up for next week. I dove into the world of hair treatments and facial mud masks because I felt that I haven&#8217;t been taking care of myself as well as I should. I&#8217;m going to share to you all, the products that I&#8217;ve come to love.
There is also a huge giveaway coming up! yay!
School is still pretty much the same. Although I am really enjoying my Rhetoric class.
I am setting up a site where you can buy stuff from my closet. Hopefully this will help me reach my pocket-money goal for May.
Also, if you have any recommendations as to places I need to visit in the Philippines for the 4 months that I will be back, I will so be super grateful. I don&#8217;t really know the Philippines and what it has to offer all too well, and I would love to maximize my stay there to learn more and experience more of it.

I am wondering what you think about gay ppl? I read your about me and you have an interesting background.

Gay people are people who deserve the same rights to everything as everyone else. I don&#8217;t know what you mean about my background being interesting though&#8230;

can u do your daily make-up youtube video pls :)

I will try to. Lately I haven&#8217;t been wearing make-up to clear my face of pimple marks, but as soon as I can, I&#8217;ll gladly post one up for you. :)

what exercise do you do? :) do you go to the gym or just at home? if so, what workouts? :)

I just use the Nike Training Club app :) Since I&#8217;ve never actually worked out before, I decided not to go to the gym until I&#8217;ve gotten the hang of the beginner workouts. Mostly I just need to tone my muscles to add definition. So I focus on my core/abs, my arms, and my butt. 
Core/Abs
Toe touches
Crunches
Plank
Sit ups
Reverse crunches
Side Crunches
Crazy Ivans
Russian Twists
Legs lifts
Walk outs
Arms
Modified Pushups
Dips
Plank row
Butt
Fuck tons of squats
Lunges (Walking lunges)
Dead lifts
Hip Lifts
SQUATS
For the most part getting to your goal is really just working through your program as much as you can. Also, keep in mind that working out is only about 30% of the work to getting the body that you want. Eating the right kinds of food is the most important part of getting healthy.

hi ate andy! what is your course? and when are you coming back to the philippines? =)

I am taking Information Design. :) I come back home this May 2014 :)

do you smoke?

Whenever I am under a lot of stress. Or whenever I&#8217;m drunk and bored.

Hi, Andy. I&#8217;m supposed to be working, but I ended up backreading your blog. LOL. I love how personal it is, and how your writing seems to flow so naturally. -bookwormvintage

Thank you! Your message is so flattering. Although, I&#8217;m sorry for keeping you from working. lol I&#8217;m glad to hear that my writing makes sense to someone else. Most of the time, I feel that the things I write are jumbled up and going in all these different directions all at the same time. :))

What do you mean by you use your handwriting in editing photos? :-)

I mean I own this graphic tablet thing that allows me to write straight on my photos. :)

Okay, so a lot of girls dream about settling down and having children, and all that stuff, and I&#8217;m just here thinking, &#8220;Why don&#8217;t I feel the need to want those things?&#8221;. I&#8217;m not just talking about how I don&#8217;t want them now, because obviously, I don&#8217;t (I&#8217;m 20, I have nothing but the 3 closets full of clothing and shoes in an apartment with 5 other people). I&#8217;m talking about how whenever I think about my future, I don&#8217;t think about having a child.
I love kids, don&#8217;t get me wrong. I simply adore taking care of them and hanging out with them, but to be quite honest, I don&#8217;t want to be responsible for one. Whenever I talk to my friends or other girls about it, they look at me like I&#8217;m demented or insane; like how do you not want children in your future? So I thought about it, and I&#8217;ve composed a list of reasons why I am not made for motherhood&#8230; or just a list of why I don&#8217;t think I am, at this point in my life.
I am a responsible person, but I am only responsible for my own well-being. I can&#8217;t very well take care of myself so how am I expected to take care of a child? I mean, yes, I am currently still alive and well, but that&#8217;s because taking care of myself is easy, I just eat a huge meal when I wake up, and then fall back to sleep, and I&#8217;m still alive.
I cannot stress this enough, I cannot cook for my own dear life. If I had to live on my own right at this moment, there are only a few culinary things that I am capable of, and they all involve eggs and bacon, and most importantly, a microwave.
I am selfish beyond measure. If I have to give, then I do. But if I have even the tiniest loop hole not to, then I won&#8217;t. I work about 30 hours a week, while being in school and spending most of my free time reading the 100 pages readings assigned every week. If I can hoard all the money I earn for myself, I would.
I would rather be the cool aunt. If ever I do take care of kids in the future, I would rather be the cool aunt that spoils them like crazy by buying them designer clothing, or giving them trips to European countries when their teenagers. I want to be the aunt they come to when their mothers become their enemies. I want to be the aunt that can babysit whenever the parents want to go out for a romantic getaway or something.
There are a lot of things in life that I still want to do and that includes traveling. I want to travel to at least 6 more countries before I decide to settle down and just work and be a wife. I want to be able to go to these places without having to worry about other financial responsibilities. Like, I said, I am a very selfish person. But considering the debt I will be in by the time I leave university, there&#8217;s no way that I would be able to have a child by the time I manage to pay that off.
I love having my own time. I like to keep myself busy with either work or school, and obviously, by the time I&#8217;d want a kid, I&#8217;d be working. Whenever I&#8217;m not busy with work or school, I love having my own time to just sit and enjoy the day, not having to worry about any other responsibilities even for just a couple of hours. I like being alone in a quiet room with a book and a cup of coffee, and I am not yet willing to sacrifice that for anything.
If ever I do decide to have a kid, I would adopt. I get a lot of criticism from people whenever I mention this personal choice. I mean, I get it you know, bearing a child is one of nature&#8217;s greatest wonders or whatever, and I commend people who want that out of their lives, but I don&#8217;t. I don&#8217;t for a few various reasons including numerous possible health risks for myself and for the child I will have brought into the world. If I do decide to have a kid, I will adopt.
I don&#8217;t know if any of these will change in the future or something, but I&#8217;ve had the same choice since I was 14 and it remained the same. So maybe it will, maybe it won&#8217;t. Either way, I will love the child I will possibly adopt or conceive in the future, regardless.

Okay, so a lot of girls dream about settling down and having children, and all that stuff, and I’m just here thinking, “Why don’t I feel the need to want those things?”. I’m not just talking about how I don’t want them now, because obviously, I don’t (I’m 20, I have nothing but the 3 closets full of clothing and shoes in an apartment with 5 other people).

I&#8217;ve spent most of my time in school just worrying about the things that I have to do in school for that year, or semester. I never really think about my future. Well, that&#8217;s not true, I do think about my future quite often, it&#8217;s just that I never truly think about what exactly I am doing to get to where I want to be. Everyday, I daydream about the job I want to have and where I want to live, and how my life will be. Recently, I&#8217;ve been thinking about my future seriously. I no longer just daydream about a sunny day in my 25 year old life. I&#8217;ve started to make choices that benefit my current self and my future endeavors.
The best thing that came out of moving from the Philippines to Canada, was the fact that all of the things that I could only dream of back home, are now things that are within my reach. For the longest time, I didn&#8217;t know what I wanted to do when I grew up. I&#8217;ve always just said that I would become an Engineer because I&#8217;m good at Math. That really wasn&#8217;t something that I was passionate about; it was just a default answer because there was no room for risks in a third world country, there&#8217;s only economically acceptable jobs.
After we moved here, I saw all these opportunities come up, and there was way more room for risks. That&#8217;s when I started to dream of what I could accomplish. I knew I wanted to be in fashion, but I&#8217;m not very talented in sewing or designing garments. If anything, I want to be a stylist. But since I&#8217;m taking Communication Studies in University, I would really love to be able to write for and layout fashion magazines.
So my 5 year plan is basically the goals I want to achieve by 2017-2018:
Live in Toronto for summer 2016.
Intern for ELLE Canada or Seventeen magazine during that summer and the succeeding years.
Finish university at 2017 and move to Toronto.
Live in Toronto for a year.
Move to New York by 2018.
I know this list is reaching for pretty big dreams but I&#8217;m pretty much in the &#8220;Go big or go home&#8221; mental state for this year. I want to achieve as much as I can in the little time that I have.

Here comes the obligatory resolution lists that is almost always forgotten by the 2nd week of January. Old habits die hard, after all. But here&#8217;s to trying!
Actually try in school: I know you&#8217;re doing great and all, and that your getting the grades you need, but we both know you can do better, so please, do so.
Experience more things: This isn&#8217;t much of a resolution, it&#8217;s more of a nudge to keep doing what you&#8217;re doing. You&#8217;ve lived life last year by saying yes to things you would&#8217;ve turned down the year before, this is a time to keep growing, my dear.
Stop wasting your time watching TV shows that will be there a month from now, and start reading more books: Netflix will still be there when you finish your book, don&#8217;t worry, it&#8217;s not going to go anywhere, your shows can wait.
Stop shopping when you&#8217;re sad, angry, or PMS-ing: It&#8217;s not saving you or your money.
Make time for your family: I know you&#8217;ve got a lot on your plate, with school and work going on, but please take some time out of your busy schedule to do something nice for your parents, and your siblings.
Get more involved in organized school activities: Being anti-social is not helping your academic career.
Workout: You&#8217;re skinny and you don&#8217;t gain weight. You don&#8217;t really need to get a perfect body, but working out keeps your body healthy and your mind alert. And while you&#8217;re at it, eat healthier too! No more Cheetos for you.
Don&#8217;t be afraid to meet new people: It&#8217;s actually good for you, and it&#8217;s fun. Try doing in drunk, it&#8217;s easier.
Trust yourself more: You need to believe that you can do what you think you can do. Stop selling yourself short, you&#8217;ll regret it in the long run.
