This is it. Just yesterday, I received the email about the opening of the contest and I swore to all the bacon I’ve eaten that I won’t mind joining it because psh, I wouldn’t stand a chance. But when I unconsciously blurted out the Big Blog Exchange started, my mom heard me and asked about it. After I shared to her the mechanics and stuff, she told me to give it a try.
It was only at midnight when I mustered up all my guts and registered. The first time I placed all my information, my picture won’t upload so I was like “Okayyyyy, not for me then.” But I got OC with my essay so I tried it one more time then it said “error”. By that time, I loudly asked God to at least let me join. Then after the next try, I finally got registered.
It’s crazy how I even considered joining but I do know one thing, I need this big break. A couple of days from now, the roster of new Certified Public Accountants will come out and my name may or may not be included. Either way, I would definitely need this big break after months of struggle and hard work. It would be a really awesome opportunity if I’d get to set foot on some foreign land and go on an adventure—- getting lost and finding myself. I’ll be facing a whole new chapter real soon and I hope to start it with a much better perspective and a whole lot stronger motivation.
So if you guys think that I also need or deserve this, please share your support by voting for me: http://www.bigblogexchange.org/profile/2014/5669544198668288 . I’m supposed to make that a link but somehow it doesn’t work. hahaha But really guys, I’d really appreciate it if you get a little time of your day to go to my profile and vote for me. I do hope we could win this thing. Who knows? I might not be The Parisian Dreamer anymore, maybe I have the chance of becoming The Parisian Blogger (oh my God, that was so lame.) But yeah, you get the point!
If you guys want to read my essay, it’s also on my profile! Please do support my co bloggers Alissa and RV! They are also candidates. <3 Much love, guys! Thank you in advance and ciao!
Hey there lovely dreamers! I know, I know, it’s been more than a month since I last blogged and I’m seriously sorry about that. If you guys didn’t know, I was in my reviewing phase for my board exam and I just took four out of the seven sets! I swear I have so much to talk about even just for what happened last week! But… I’ll have to save that for another post. I’ll be taking the last three exams this Monday and Tuesday and hopefully the results will come out within the same week. *fingers crossed*
Anyways, as you can see the photos above, I actually went to a really a dainty cafe about two weeks ago. It’s called Cafe Tiala. If you could still remember Cafe Noriter, it’s pretty much like that one except that this one is more on the girly, princess-ish style. So that explains all the pink and white color scheme, floral prints and pretty chandeliers.
I really had fun when I was there with my sister. We ordered choco and vanilla shakes, cupcakes and their blue lemonade. They are quite lovely on my tastebuds. I also loved their onesies! it’s free for anyone to wear but don’t worry, I saw them wash it so I guess it’s clean. Haha! I didn’t know I got the Olaf one until my sister pointed that out! It’s so cute! :) The also have bunks with TVs so if you guys go there and want to watch some KPOP music videos then you can choose those bunks! My sister and I chose the one without the television since we are not really KPOP fans. Hahaha
If you happen to be from Cebu or are planning to come here, Cafe Tiala is located right beside Cebu Grand Convention which is basically just five minutes away from Ayala Center Cebu. <3
I’ve been going out and about these past few weeks. The photos above are just some of the highlights,
How are you all doing? I missed blogging legit stuff and got a lot of topics brewing inside my mind so watch out for that! :) By the way, I’m sporting a new theme now. Do check it out! Ciao!

By far, the most gorgeous island resort I’ve ever been to. Sumilon Blue Waters is just hands down perfect. The ridiculously clear, blue green waters is unbelievable. I swear to God I’ve never seen like it before and that is much coming from someone who probably has been to like at least fifty different islands and beaches.
The island is isolated but it doesn’t feel like you are being cast away into simple island living. You can do so much there like trekking to the light house and watch tower (which was crazy hard!), fish feeding/fishing/kayaking in their huge lagoon, diving in their beautiful marine sanctuaries, swimming in their infinity pool, scaring yourself out inside their Yamashita cave and the list just goes on.
The resort is quite expensive though. I could not complain about it though after all the VIP treatment. Their boat ride from the main land to the island was hassle free and the whole island is clearly well maintained.
I could only wish to stay there forever. It’s a paradise where you could just allow yourself to unwind and let your wandering soul live free. I definitely had one of the best times of my summer there. :)
