6 songs I listen to A LOT are White Noise (…duh), Piano Man (Mamamoo) and I Will Show You (Ailee) because I like singing in the shower, Just Right by Got7 cause positivity 👍, Hero by Monsta X because LET THE BASS DROP, and anything else with EXO on repeat. My favorite color is TEAL!!!! and I love how it looks with white, sand, and black!! As apparent in my theme 😅
Why is Coron, Palawan a perfect reading place? (Part 1)
Continuing my adventure which started in Baguio, I went island hopping in Coron in the southern Philippines and I was surprised by the beauty and tranquility that welcomed me.
By boat, heading at the beaches of the islands from the main Coron town took us one and a half hour, but it was an overwhelming sight to see! Really perfect for leisure.
This is Banol Beach. I love the natural mix of the sharp brown minerals, the greens, white sand, and the pristine waters. This is just a small island you can walk around in just 10-15minutes. There’s a lot of stingrays in this side of the beach. The other side (not in the photo) is solely dedicated for swimming and snorkeling activities. You can see me waving happily on the side of the rocks.
Peaceful Banana Island is perfect for reflecting. Maybe it’s over an hour from Coron Town, but it’s simply tranquil and beautiful. You may also do camping here overnight!
Just by looking at the waters ebbing the shore, you can hear your heart beating with the ocean.
Next stop will be the other side of Coron, which is full of turquoise-colored waters and just breath-taking views of nature. I will be posting more soon!
Hemingway also kept me busy along the way. Reading in the quiet islands is just perfect!

Dear Solange, 21. we met on a conference call and I thought you were high but later realized you were just a slow ass talker 22. We ate mad sushi and became sisters 23. I drove the getaway car for Keisha crazy. 24. Julez became my heart. 25 You threatened to leave LA. 26 you broke my heart and actually left LA. also we made one of the best pieces of art I’ve ever made in South Africa, so that made up for the move. 27 introduced me to the beauty of Nola and I caught 2 cocunuts at Zulu. 28 you married your soul mate and literally threw the best celebration of history. 29 we danced through those Havana streets as people threw buckets of cleansing water on us from their windows on New Years. But really it was just tap water… 30 you made it! And I no longer have to hear your insane theories about dying in your twenties. I don’t like those at all… All that to say thank you for coming into my life and sharing this past decade with me. I love you from that treehouse in Sweden to the White Sands of New Mexico. You are my soul sister, my sanity, the other pea in this pod. Happy mothafuckin birthday Solo!!! I can’t wait to spend the next decade talking revolutions, throwing shade, and leaving footprints round the world!!!
I fell in love with not just her physical looks but her elaborate mind. Her mind was beautiful. Her thoughts were an intricate web of excitement weaving around like a masterpiece. Her mind was powerful. Her ambitions were like a bullet speeding by, incapable of being held, burning everything in its way. And maybe her mind was so dangerous, that it even seemed like she herself bit off more than she could chew. She felt like she was suffocating in her own sea of despair…drowning in her thoughts. I guess it’s true you don’t need water to feel like you are drowning. And what hurts the most is me, watching, and realizing that I cannot dive in and save her. She was the ocean and I was a grain of sand.
