Bury St. Edmunds and Beyond: Living the UK Dream Part 1

A journey of a thousand Li begins with a single STEP. – Confucius Coming to the UK was beyond my wildest dreams and fantasy. It never occurred to me that I will be living and breathing in the United Kingdom. It was all surreal and mind blowing. It has been a whirlwind of emotions and feelings. Actually, I never thought I will be able to adjust on the grueling 14 hours or more flight from Manila to Dubai then to Heathrow, London. Though the flight via Emirates air was pretty long haul, the economy class was just like the typical

Smell Fresh and Fragrant Without Hurting Nature: A Review on Tindaraga’s Shampoo and Conditioner Bars

Frizzy hair has always been my issue. My curly locks usually get tangled and it gets hard to untangle them especially early in the morning. I could recall having a struggle fixing my hair when I was still a nursing student back in college. IT was more than hell to make my curly locks be tamed and follow my brushed up styling that would end up in a tight bun. When I graduated from college and started working, I had my curly locks straightened out just for the fad. Later on I realized that my hair lacks the luster it

At HideAway Dive Hostel, Feelings Aren’t The Only Ones Being Hidden

Cebu, Philippines — I have been itching to get that sandy feel on my toes and salt on my hair the entire summer. Truth to be told, I dreamed of becoming a mermaid and spend life underwater, much to my disappointment. I never knew how to swim beyond my height, though I had tried diving thrice in the beautiful underwater world of Maribago [Kontiki]. I still had this hydrophobia that gnaws every single time I wanted to learn how to swim. I easily get cramps but that does not hinder me to enjoy the azure waters of the ocean. When
