* Friday's 10 Happy Things * 02


I skipped last week's 10 Happy Things because it wasn't exactly a happy week. Okay, maybe that's a little over the top. One thing actually made me happy last weekI got paid for my temp job! 

On a lighter note, I'm back with my second entry!
  1. Twinsters - a documentary about identical twin sisters separated at birth and reunited by the inexorable fate. It was so heartwarming and it just makes you believe that there are some events in our life that were already sealed to happen... Fate really is whimsical.  It's crazy how one random incident could completely change one's life. The twins' reunion story is absolutely astonishing. Go watch it on Netflix!!! Pop! 
  2. I finally have my own domain name. *eeeeeppp* wanderirene.com 
  3. New winter coat from Mantaray! Thanks Dad! 😉
  4. Christmas fayre
  5. Chippy - Yuuuum! Finished one bag all for myself. Ahhhh! Nothing compares to Filipino snacks.
  6. Black Friday Sale - I don't know how it suddenly became a huge thing in the UK but I am definitely not complaining! Lots of really good offers on the high street!
  7. ISAW - OMG! It's been 7 bloody years!!! I had forgotten how delicious it was. 
  8. My old playlist 


  9. Cetaphil - Very happy with the wonders it's doing to my skin.
  10. Gamberoni pasta from Bella Italia - I promised myself to start eating healthy again but, but, but, it's Friday and it's my favourite. . .*huhuhuhu*

The Sunday Currently | 07



It is definitely beginning to look & feel a lot like Christmas! It is bitterly cold now in the UK as the temperature's started to drop. I remember last week my friends and I were just talking about how winter this year felt a lot warmer compared to last year. Well, when it comes to THE British weather, no one can be certain of, even the forecast. 

Isn't it bonkers how this week went by really quick? Moreover, there's only 32 days left before Christmas (ah, that explains the amount of shoppers yesterday). That's insane! Not so long ago I was just... (1) stressing over my dissertation, not having a clue how to even start; (2) enjoying the warm weather in sunny Venice (ahhh, the mere thought of it makes me want to go there again).

I am currently...

Reading 
random Sunday Currently blogs.

Writing
a couple blogposts to be posted next week.

Listening 
to Adele's new album. My favourite track is When We Were Young. How about you? *I know you love Adele as much as I do*

Thinking
of migrating to Wordpress, but...

Smelling
the fresh scent of my Mitchum deo. I'm not gonna lie, I was a smelly kid before... but not anymore. :)))))

Wishing
for a white Christmas. If it's going to be bitterly cold, as if it is not already, this winter, why not give us snow for Christmas?

Hoping
for a productive and healthier week ahead.

Wearing
a long-sleeve top and leggings from H&M

Loving
my new skincare routine! I recently bought new skincare products from Amazon. I've heard so many good reviews of Cetaphil so I'm giving it a shot. I also bought a face mask from a Korean brand called Skin Food.

Wanting
to go to Winter Wonderland in London next month.

Needing
warm hugs

Feeling
COLD

The Sunday Currently | 06


What a series of horrendous events we had witnessed this week. I am out of words. I feel terribly sorry not just for the victims but for the entire human race. I'd like to believe that one day, somehow, the world will find peace.


Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

  2. A much needed catch-up with a friend.
  3. Justin Bieber's new album: Purpose

  5. Zizzi (Newest favourite Italian restaurant) - You have no idea how much I love Italian food. I'm really happy to have discovered this hidden gem.

Inspiring quotes to get you through life


Allow me to share a few inspiring quotes I found on Pinterest that help me get through life, especially now. I'm in that phase in life where the only thing I am sure about is that I am confused and perhaps, lost. I just finished school and slowly still adjusting to 'adulthood'. Quarter-life crisis? :)))))) I stumbled upon this article and realised that I am not alone in this 'crisis': Trying Out Adulthood: Why The Early 20s Crisis Is Definitely A Thing

I regret the times I had wished time will fast-forward so that I could escape school (deadlines, exams, essays, reports and dissertation) and start working to earn money. Is this real life? To be completely honest, I would  rather wake up early in the morning (two or three times a week) for a 9am lecture at university than to work from 9am-5pm daily. I mean, what's left to do in a day after 5pm? In the UK, all shops close at 6pm. Travelling to get back home (from where I currently work) takes me up to an hour at least by train/bus. By the time I get home, it's past 6pm already. Oh well, that's life.

  • If ever you find yourself in the wrong story, leave. 
  • Sometimes you have to do the best for you and your life, not the best for everyone else.
  • Some of the best things in life are mistakes.
  • Nothing will work unless you do.
  • Be stubborn about your goals, and flexible about your methods.
  • Courage, dear heart.
  • Surround yourself with people who have dreams, desire and ambition; they'll help you push for, and realise your own.
  • Stop holding yourself back. If you aren't happy, make a change. 
  • There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications, and just go for it.
  • Stay patient and trust your journey.
  • Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.
  • Accept what is, let go of what was, have faith in what will be.

The Sunday Currently | 05



This entry's supposed to be posted two weeks ago but circumstances averted me from doing so. Anywho, as if it's not obvious from my previous blog, I just recently graduated. I am officially done with school and to my surprise, I am missing it. I'm not quite convinced yet that I am no longer a student, and that I am wholly transitioning to adulthood. Withdrawals? Perhaps it is, perhaps it's the thought of growing up -of figuring out what I really want to do with my life- that scares the sh*t out of me.

And guess what????? I got a job!!!
