It’s Not Too Late

Just watched inside Out a few days ago. if you are not familiar with the movie,it is by Pixar, so it is an animated cartoon. It is a story about the emotions of a girl named Riley as her family moves from Minnesota to San Frnacisco. It was quite good and I enjoyed that there was no real “bad guy”.

Before the main movie, there was a short film, called Lava. It is about a volcano, uku, who for years, sings a love song, hoping to have a partner to share and enjoy life. Throughout the years, the water level rises and just as the wate reaches his mouth, a new volcano,Lele, erupts but is unable to see, uku.uku tries to sing but is out of lava and sinks to the ocean. Lele then begins to sing the same love song, which stimulates the earth and lava in Uku and Uku also erupts out of the ocean, to be at the side of Lele.

I was so touched by that short little firm. Thousands of years to be waiting… I'm currently going through some struggles in my life. But I don't want to wait years for things to get better. There may not be much that I can change and frankly, change does scare me. It is far easier to do what is comfortable and to stay in relative safety instead of embracing uncertainty. I want to pursue my happiness now. I want my life to be more than what it is now. I want a life full of “lava.”

 

TRX or Bust

This year, 2014, has been my year to focus on my health. Not necessarily weight loss, although that IS something I need to address! I have participated in some fun runs, which were not entirely fun. I am not a fan of getting dirty! ha ha ha ha! But they were great experiences and challenged… Continue Reading

No Foundation Serum

Im on the market for a no foundation base. I have tried BB creams but even the ones that are targeted for oily skin did not help my skin. The formulas just did not set right. I then tried tinted sunscreens, because as a woman in her mid-30s, I need to protect what I have… Continue Reading

Bitsu bitsu

What the heck is bitsu bitsu?  Chicken nuggets? Nope, not at all!  If you enjoy Filipino desserts, you may know these as karioka or cascarons.  They are fried balls consisting of rice flour, coconut and coconut milk.  These balls are then glazed from a mixture of coconut milk and brown sugar.  I had to make… Continue Reading

Cookies and Cream Cookies

Cookies and Cream Cookies

A coworker brought in some cookies and cream cookies. I found them intriguing, putting broken up cookies and cream cookies into another cookie. I asked her for the recipe and she said it was on Pinterest. All the recipes I came across on Pinterest called for pudding mix, in addition to the broken up cookies.… Continue Reading

Knuckle Clasp Clutch

Knuckle Clasp Clutch

We had a holiday gift exchange today. And one of the ladies here was gifted with a fabulous knuckle clasp clutch. No, she did not receive the Alexander McQueen clutch. But isn’t it fabulous?! I love the design of the knuckle clasp area. I’m not really a fan of the size of the clutch, it… Continue Reading

The Pregnancy Myth

When you are a teenager with raging hormones, most of the sex education you get is geared more at abstinence rather than safer sex practices.  You can’t get pregnant or get a disease if you don’t have sex!  Yet, biologically, this is the perfect time for female bodies to reproduce.  When you get older and… Continue Reading
