Starting 2017

For the year 2017, I’m back with my Planner!

I have stopped for two years using a planner since I lost my motivation for using one. Usually, when I use a planner I turn it into my scrapbook and diary. I put pictures of events happened on certain days or just scribble/doodle on my planner. The use of my planner was not only to plan or to schedule an event but also to be like a yearly album full of memories.

I started having a “Planner-Album-Diary” when I was in High School and whenever I see those planners again, I reminisce the fun events happened back then. Seeing those planners made me missed in having one. With that, I will start 2017 with a planner.

Unboxing: BIGBANG 2012 Alive Tour in Seoul DVD + Photobook

I’ll be unboxing BIGBANG’s 2012 Alive Tour in Seoul DVD. Some might say, “Why only now? That was in the year 2012.” Well, that is because I just bought this DVD recently. I usually don’t buy CDs or DVDs because I need to choose between spending money on concerts or merchandises. That is why I save up and spend it for concerts and lightsticks since I like it better experiencing everything live and in person. So what made me decided to buy this one? First, it is BIGBANG!  Second, a music store here in the Philippines, Odyssey, had a massive album sale. I got this DVD and Photobook for Php 300 only! Such a steal deal since it was originally priced at Php 2000. Bought this one at Greenbelt 1 in Makati. (more…)
