Cobwebs, cobwebs, cobwebs everywhere!!! Perfect for Halloween but not for my asthma. Hellooooooo guuuuuuuys!!!! Macey’s back in the blogging game and I apologize for the lack of posts. I’ve been neglecting my own swamp in the cyber world because of too much work and laziness (that’s quite confusing) but here I am, still going strong and fabulous!
Let me just say THANK YOU to my readers who constantly bugged me about updating my blog. It means to say that somewhere in places known and unknown to me, there are people who like my personal style, who love my stories and who are willing to follow me and my crazy adventures in life. I wanna express my sincerest appreciation for telling me to finally make a new post because it excites you. Thank you for saying that you’re enjoying the things I put up here. There are times when I just wanna shut down all of these because I thought (actually, I still do) I was just wasting my time which I could’ve use for other more important (and not-so-important) stuff. But when encouraging words like these come to me, it makes me believe that I’m doing something right.
Once again, thank you!

Ok, time for some stories. Let me share to you some stuff I’ve been wanting to do for some time:
I’ve been watching a few good anime series in the past weeks. I’ve finished my all time favorite Sailor Moon’s new saga “Sailor Moon Crystal”. I’ve also finished Food Wars/Shokugeki no Soma which I really enjoyed because of the things I learn about cooking and the business of food. Now, I’m watching Haikyu which I’m totally addicted to because I used to play volleyball when I was a kid. It gives me a wider prospective of the sport plus I love the development of each character in the story. As always, the story of the underdog always wins the hearts of people. I’m telling you, there’s no episode that my tear ducts stop from functioning.
I’m getting busier and busier at work because of our yearly Christmas play. Just when I thought I know how to play the game already because I’ve done it last year, my boss changes the rules and shake things up. How cruel! A lot of stuff are turning against my favor but I’m not gonna let them get me. If there’s a thing that I’ve learned from the queen of drag RuPaul and the animes I currently watch, it’s the value of perseverance. The importance of doing your best and not giving up.
I can’t wait for winter vacation because at last, after 3 long years, I’m gonna visit the mother land again. Yup, I’m spending the holiday seasons with my family and old friends in Manila. And I’m going with my family from Tokyo which makes things more exciting. I can’t wait to see everyone again and maybe finally meet the people I only interact with in the Internet. But before that, I need to endure all the pressure and stress I’ll be facing at work.
Aside from my trip to the mother land this December, I can’t wait to travel somewhere new again. Two weeks ago, I was granted an American visa which means I can finally visit the Land of Milk, Honey and Super-Sized Fast Food Value Meals. I never knew that my American Dream is strong until I got that hard-to-get visa. Now, I can’t contain my excitement to visit my dream cities in America that I don’t know where to go first. New York, Hawaii, Las Vegas, Chicago, Washington DC, Miami- oh my gosh!!! Just the idea of riding a plane and the adrenalin of realizing my dreams of flight are killing me. I.CANT.WAIT.
I promised myself this year that I’m not gonna support Made in China products anymore especially clothes. It’s not because I hate Chinese people but this is my political protest to all the nastiness they do against smaller nations like my motherland Philippines. With all the bullying they do just to gain some of our marine territories, I need to do what I can do to support my country. I’m not physically strong and I am no soldier. I’m nothing but a consumer so not supporting anything made in China will be the best way to do this support. I REPEAT, I don’t hate the Chinese just because they are born in China and I see all of them in a stereotypical manner. It’s my expression of patriotism to the country where I was born which I also love with my whole heart.
Doing so, shopping became a bit of a challenge because as we all know, anywhere we go, almost everything is made in the Sleeping Giant. As much as I wanna buy something, the excitement just goes straight to the trash bin once I saw that “made in China” tag. On the other hand, it’s also saving me lots of money.
Ok that’s it guys. I may not be quite active in the blog but if you want your dose of my silliness, follow me in my social media accounts
