Introverts don’t get lonely if they don’t socialize with a lot of people, but we do get lonely if we don’t have intimate interactions on a regular basis.

It was a fine and cozy Friday the 13th when I took a leave to apply for a passport. Since the process in DFA Alabang went smoothly, I’ve decided to look for a quiet little nook where I can prolly do the things I haven’t done for months already.

I was strolling around Alabang Town Center (ATC) when I found The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, and man, I fell in love with the place!

  • The place is situated in the middle of the mall and it gives me a coffee oasis vibe.
  • It’s not cramped - or maybe, I just went on a non-peak hour of the day.
  • Friendliest staff ever!
  • Indie bands on the background.
  • The ambiance is simply perfect. Definitely what I’ve been looking for.

After ordering a drink, I started immersing myself in His word and jotting down my thoughts. Once done with my devotion, I started reading the book my mentor gave me. I can’t help but be amazed that I am reading again. It was refreshing.

I headed for Fully Booked afterwards. Sadly, though I have the money to buy books, I haven’t got the time. I know, it’s such a pity! Plus, I still have a lot of pending books at home and I swore to myself I wouldn’t buy a new one until I finish those.

What I like about “me-time” is that you can do things at your own pace - not only can you be able to sort and nurture your ideas but you can also give birth to them at the proper time. Oh how I wish everyday is like this day!

To my dearest blog,

Shall I revive thee? I badly miss this little corner on the interwebs and yes, I miss my kitty life. Oh, how cramped can my time get?

Oh you were beautiful, when your hair was a mess and your face a wreck. You were beautiful when you slept and when you wept. You were beautiful when you never thought you were, because I saw you in those moments, I saw all of you; and oh how I loved you.

As always, I’m the queen of late posts. I’n going to flood your dashboards/feeds/timelines with some pics from my accidental Puerto Galera escapade. #vsco #vscocam #philippines #puertogalera
