Pre-med student and amateur baker.
Instead of posting my pictures and sharing my life updates on facebook,
I blog them here. HA!
And let's exchange blog buttons! :)

This is a requirement in our Microbial Physiology and was posted during our Micro Day. [ I did the layout-thingy alone since my partner was busy. ]
This is supposed to be an academic-related trip. Maville and I are supposed to acquire insects (parasitoids) from Philippine Coconut Authority in Davao City. But since she also wanted to attend her sister’s thanksgiving celebration, we had to take a longer route which is to stay for a while in Cotabato instead of going directly to Davao. That route was kinda tiring since there are only few bus trips going to her hometown - we had to wait for the bus (JB waited long at the terminal until we were able to get a bus seat). And also, there was no internet connection there (which is kinda important for doing my school requirements), no strong connection for TM and some bit of adjustments. But on the bright side, I got the chance to meet her family (who were very accommodating) and I was able to visit Cotabato for the first time and to relax at Agko mountain resort. When we went to Davao, me, maville, and her friend explored the city to reach the remote place where PCA-DRC is located hahaha. none of us knew the exact location, we’re just glad we didn’t get lost. And after that, I had back pains after carrying my heavy backpack while walking around Davao City. I really got so tired after long hours of sitting in the bus but I’ll just think of it as a new experience and adventure. :)
I hope you fall in love with someone who never lets you fall asleep thinking you’re unwanted.

Yes. Hello. I’m still alive and I just turned 20 !!! I apologize for being inactive (chos! as if I have regular visitors of my blog! anyway…) Excuse my weird face and awkward arm!
No more “-teen” age. I’m not ready for more responsibilities slash adult life. HUHUHU but I’m just soo happy and grateful to God for giving me 20 awesome years!!
I didn’t want a big celebration for my birthday. I didn’t even ask my mother to prepare something but she did.. in case our relatives come over and expect that we prepared something. HAHA. A day before my birthday, JB and I prepared black sambo. (you should try it, lami kaayo!!) I worked on my paper overnight and it was past 12 when JB called and greeted me then chikka for few minutes.. I slept around 2am or 4am (I forgot!) I woke up with the big voice of my mama dear saying that JB was here. He looked so clean and fresh when he gave me roses! :) (while me, feeling so wrecked with my morning face -_-) Instead of just surprising me by leaving those roses while I was asleep, I got up and ate breakfast with him :) I was busy editing and revising my paper in the morning and around 12, my beloved friends surprised me with a cake, balloons and party hats — which made my day like a real birthday celebration hahaha. Without those props, I think I won’t be able to have pictures! So.. lunch here at my house then dinner with JB (my SMART friends didn’t show up) at Delecta. That’s all! It was a great day! :) I’m feeling loved <3
If I have an attendance sheet for the significant people of my life, he would be the person having the least number of absences! :)
The faculty where I spend most of my time during the student exchange program :)
I dealt with this project for a month at Khon Kaen University. Green mirid bug is the natural enemy or the predator of the brown planthopper (which is a serious pest on rice plants!). To control the population of the pest, green mirid bugs are used :) I studied their predatory behavior and their population dynamics. The suction tube on the right is the thing which I used to capture the bugs from the aluminum cages where they are mass reared. And I count the eggs of brown planthopper under the microscope and served it as the food for the bug until they molt 3 times to become adult :)
Who would have thought that I could travel out of the country as an exchange student? ;) I never regret my decision of exhausting all the possibilities to get here. And I am always grateful to God for making this happen!! Anyway, my life here in Khon Kaen has full of ups and downs. I will just share randomly in bullets.
