The Sto. Rosario Parish Church

Chemist Board Exam Blog Series Part 1

The Sto. Rosario Parish Church

Passing the Chemist Licensure Examination was a farfetched idea for me. My scores in review classes are low and my friends were doing better. As I compared myself with my classmates, I have found out that they have a specific time table to study every subject. Some even stay late at night and others study up to five in the morning.

I lost meaning in my studies. My passion for science was depleted when I did nothing but study in college. I didn’t have time to go to the movies or go on a vacation. All I did was to get lost in my Chemistry books even on weekends. So when graduation came, I felt like a monkey who just escaped from the zoo. Hoo hoo hoo haa haa haa!

All I did was to go to the mall, chat, play more games, and drink coffee and eat cakes at Starbucks®! Even if I know that I need to study for the exam, I just couldn’t bring myself to do it.

It is hard to do something that you don’t have interest in.

But all that has changed…

It was around late July when I found out that the jeepney that I was usually riding took on a new route to make way for the Colon Street Bazaar. It was a big hassle for me. That new route didn’t pass by the bus terminal so I have to walk four blocks before I could ride it.

However, after just 3 blocks, my body would surrender from walking and the scorching heat of the sun would further drain me down. See, I went to school during noon time when the sun is at its peak.

But the Lord said, “Come to me all of you who are tired and I will give you rest.”

Hmmm… Didn’t He perfectly put Sto. Rosario Church at the third block?

Sto. Rosario Church has a beautiful Adoration Chapel inside. There were lots of flowers with the Tabernacle at the center. But what I like most about the room is the fact that IT IS AIR-CONDITIONED. Hahahaha!

So, it was a perfect place for me to rest for a while and regain my energy. Not only that, the chapel’s peaceful atmosphere would lead me to prayer. I was relaxing my body and rejuvenating my soul at the same time.

Visiting Sto. Rosario Church gradually became a routine. And in the Adoration Chapel, I always pray before the Tabernacle that I would pass the Board Exam, even if it required a miracle.

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur
