When I was in Seoul last 2015, I fell in love with Korea, their culture, food, and everything absolutely about it. And while it is true that the city is so colorful in so many ways I cannot even describe, everyone knows about their history and how they managed to strive for more than 70 years - with the North Korean nuclear aggression.

People use mobile phones every day in more ways than one, unlike before when it was only meant for calls. Instant messaging came and it didn’t take too long for it to have games and other entertainment features such as a music player and a radio. Today, people use it to get information from the internet, while numerous apps have made it possible to do things with just the touch of their fingertips. But among the numerous features a mobile phone has, the camera is probably the most used of them all. From taking pictures and preserving memories to taking selfies and show off.

HR people are probably the most unpopular folks in any office. No one really pays much attention to what they do, except when problems arise with time records, benefits, and payslips – in which case they get the brunt of people’s ire. Few people realize that if those HR people don’t do their jobs, corporate life can get quite messy. Like can you imagine what will happen if your salary and tax records are not updated?

How will you celebrate Valentine's Day? Isn't it nice to start with a cup of your favorite coffee?
For those who are in relationships, it often starts with “What do you do?”, “Kamusta weekend mo?” or “Kamusta traffic sa area mo?” I remember my first date with my ex - a coffee meet up at Starbucks in Megamall because I was craving for the Chocolate Cip Frappe. Then, eventually, the small talks turn into conversations revolving around families, hobbies and passions. And, in those moments where two people do nothing but simply talk about their lives and open up their souls to one another, good things happen.

I am always in awe whenever I get to see amazing art pieces in real life. I guess it's because I have always been a frustrated artist - with my Mom and brother who can paint like a pro, I'm odd one out. That is why last week, being invited to Chan Lim Family of Artists and Students event at the SM North EDSA The Block Atrium, was the highlight of the Chinese New Year Celebration for me. Their fine pieces about nature and animals on scroll and plates are almost impossible to miss.

Why is this February already? Seriously, time flies so fast. Valentine's Day is approaching very soon and I have some stories and happenings for heart's day to share in the following days. Here in the Philippines, Valentine's Day is a serious holiday. I cannot begin to tell you how many times I've cringed over the fact that I never receive flowers every 14th. I can only remember forcing an ex boyfriend to give me one so many years ago, and I think that was the last time I have ever received any.
But growing up, I realized that it is not really that important. You should not really have to join the hype, especially when you have your friends and family with you. Some years back, our male officemates surprised us girls with a heart's day breakfast. Life was even simpler back in high school, when all we think about this day is just hanging around and listening to mix tapes. I remember practicing to play guitars just like the blueridge guitars at wwbw.com. Everything was simpler. And I think, what's sweetest than flowers are heartfelt surprises from the people around you. After all, all we need is love, right?
This Valentine's Day, what are your plans? I want to know so I could also get some ideas on how to make my friends who are also single, also enjoy that special day. Happy Love Month everyone!
