Insta-DTBD Entry

One day, you will see all this beauty with your own eyes. Maybe you’re hearing the cold breeze as it hits our cheeks. Maybe you’re hearing the waves crash on the rocks and the beach. So many maybes but the one thing I’m sure is you’ll love it the way we do. via Instagram

back at it.

so many reasons not to do this anymore, but only one really good one to do so – i have decided to turn this into my #dtbd – a place for my thoughts about something new, something great, something exciting!

my instagram feed ( will still be my main photoblog, and will soon be linking that to here via #IFTTT specifically via the #dtbd hashtag.

i know i’ve been silent here. if you’re still reading me, i don’t know if you’re in for a treat but there’s definitely some introspective stuff coming this year.


it’s been five months but i haven’t even had a slightest urge to update my blog. have i lost my internet voice? has life been that boring or busy that has caused me not to provide a single minute in the last five months to post even a single line?

no, no and no. i just think that ever since i’ve dabbled into and fallen in love with photoblogging, instagram was just the most logical choice to continue this journey. it was easier to find inspiration in photos, and use captions to post my reflections on the images i see.

also, this year has been one change after the other – a constant adjustment to deal with. not something unprecedented, but i never thought it’d be something i’d deal with again. nothing personal though, so it’s something that comes with the territory of working in the technology industry.

i can’t wait for the year to be over, so i can be pleasantly surprised by expecting the worst and then getting something better.

Cause if we never leave this town, we might never make it out.” It has been two years since we left home and took on this challenge of moving across the Pacific. The road goes on, and it is waiting to be traveled on and so many uncertain things on the way to wherever we are going. But I’ll be fine as long as I’m with you @perpetuallybz

Last Song Syndrome

There are songs that stay with you the moment you hear them. Sometimes, the way the song is sung gets to that part of us that needed soothing. In other cases, the words that we hear connects to our emotions at that moment.

In this case, the visuals of this song’s music video touched a corner of my heart that longed to venture of living on the road with my loved one. Of course, there is a question of practicality and being actually able to survive the uncertainty of such an adventure, but for a moment, that sense of adventure and romanticism was awakened.

In today’s world, sometimes that moment is all you need to feel real.
