Like every bookworm in the country, I was stoked af to hear that Big Bad Wolf, the insanely low-priced, 24-hour book fair, was coming to the Philippines! I’d first encountered Big Bad Wolf when a friend of mine went to Kuala Lumpur in 2016 for a convention and managed to score some cheap art books. … More The Big Bad Wolf is in the Philippines!
It started last Monday at work, while I was making my usual morning cup of coffee. I overheard one of the secretaries chatting with a friend of mine from HR. They were talking about filling up the slots of an organized white water rafting trip so that everyone on the van knew each other. My … More By the River Tignoan I Sat Down and Was Shookt
This blog post is long overdue, let me just say, because I started watching the American Gods TV series last year, and I first read the book back in 2009. I’ve reviewed a Neil Gaiman book before (read my review of Anansi Boys here) but I have to say, American Gods is my absolute favorite. … More Currently Watching + Kate’s Books: American Gods
My 2017 ended on a pretty high note, at least academically speaking. Early on the last day of the year, I checked my CRS account, praying all my professors had uploaded my grades and I could enjoy the New Year weekend instead of worrying. (UP students, ya feel me?) Lo and behold, they had! And … More The Working Student Diaries: Pt. 1 – The Battle Plan
The state of my closets (yes, that’s plural) has become something of a joke amongst my friends. There’s always talk of any of them – all different genders, all different body types – being able to waltz into my bedroom and come out with an outfit that they like which will suit the situation at … More A Millennial’s Journey to a Capsule Wardrobe
Another year has come and gone. Hard to believe, isn’t it? Seems like just yesterday I was browsing bookstores for a 2017 planner (which I wrote about here!) and now here we are again, about to embark on the year 2018. 2017 was a year of big changes for me. When I look back at … More Reflections on 2017
I’m a huge fan of horror movies. Anyone who knows me even remotely is aware of my love for the genre. In fact, I’ve written a couple of blog posts about my favorite horror movies and TV shows (read them here and here), and this is certainly not the first horror/suspense/thriller novel I’ve reviewed (check … More Kate’s Books: Final Girls
Merry Christmas! I hope everyone had a meaningful holiday, and if you didn’t – chin up, bucko, it’s not the end of the world. I was dicking around on the Internet and procrastinating working on a book review for this blog when I came across this Christmas tag done by Krishel, and thought I’d do … More Ho Ho Ho and A Christmas Tag!
Like most of the rest of the free world, I was able to watch The Last Jedi (shoutout to Globe for the free tickets lmao). And, like the fangirl that I am (please note that Rogue One dragged me kicking and screaming back into this fandom, which I thought I had left behind in high … More The Last Jedi’s Lesson on Trust, Respect, and Leadership
I spent ten minutes dithering over an email, the cursor hovering over the send button. Attached to the email was my final term paper for PA208 – the last requirement I had to pass before my semester was officially over. I mentally ran through my “preflight check”. I had proofread twice, checked all my citations, … More Life Lately #4: Officially back from the dead, y’all!
