I arrived in the US last week and one of the first thing I did was go shopping. Duh. LOL. The last time I was here, I wasn’t able to visit the Paragon Outlets in Livermore and I really wanted to check out the place since it’s one of the few shopping centers (nearest to where I am staying) that has a Prada outlet.

The place was really nice. It actually has more luxury shops compared to the outlets I’ve been to. They even have Saks Fifth, Barneys, Burberry and some more expensive boutiques that I couldn’t remember. Hihi. And being an average earning woman, I wanted to check out luxury brands that I might afford. Most of these shops were 50 to 75% off. For example, there was this Prada Tessuto bag which was around $600 only. I was really tempted to buy but I told myself that I should wait until I am going back home. :D I actually have that kind of attitude when it comes to buying expensive stuff (500$ up). I have to wait for a few more days before purchasing. I just hope no one buys it first or else I’ll be incredibly disappointed. Haha!

How about you guys? What’s your attitude when it comes to shopping? Do you immediately buy the thing that you want regardless of their price? Or do you wait for a few more days to be sure?

When I first heard this Ed Sheeran song, I didn’t even know that it was from the movie, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. It’s probably because I haven’t seen the movie yet, or any of the The Hobbit film series. But no worries my fellow geeks, I am planning to watch the series including a re-watch of the whole The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Anyway, when I first heard the said song, I immediately thought about what’s happening with our world right now. Did you know that with China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea, we could experience World War III anytime soon? The whole ISIS thing in the Middle East is already something we should be worried about but an impending World War? That just takes the Middle East crisis to a whole new level. And don’t even get me started on the issues of Global Warming and Climate Change.

I am your typical lurker at reddit and a follower of Rappler and other news sites (that I don’t find biased) on Twitter so I can be more updated of what is truly happening with the world. And if there’s one thing I’ve realized, that is today is not the best time for apathy. Our generation should be more focused on finding solutions for these problems, rather than concentrate on blaming the generation of baby boomers. We could use our social media knowledge to campaign for the betterment of our world, to debate on these topics and discuss how we can contribute and help, in our own little way. I mean, if we have time for taking selfies and sharing funny memes, maybe we can also give time on supporting peace through joining petitions and sharing them on social media.

I am not saying that I am a perfect member of society and that you should follow me. Heck, most of the time I can also be apathetic and selfish. But with everything that is currently happening…it’s definitely something to think about. Don’t you think?

If this is to end in fire
Then we should all burn together
Watch the flames climb high into the night

Runaway

You know what I’ve always wanted in life? Being able to do something and being able to be with someone without the fear, The fear of possibility of hurt or feelings of betrayal and abandonment. To live without fear of judgement. What’s it called? Freedom.

I don’t wanna runaway
And one of these days I might just show that
Put my home in a suitcase
Tie both shoe laces and hope that
Things change but for now I’ll leave town with a backpack on my shoulder

I love him from my skin to my bones
But I don’t wanna live in his home
There’s nothing to say cos he knows
I’ll just runaway and be on my own

I still hope that someday, I could find that freedom and maybe get that peace of mind that I deserve. We all deserve happiness, right? :)
