Back from the long coffee break!


Hi everyone! It has been ages! Hopefully, I’m back for good. Chapter 6 of Two to Tango is almost done. My apologies again, and thank you to all of you who still visits my little corner in cyberspace from time to time. For now, my goal is to update and finish all my current stories, then I’ll take things from there, (mulling over some content changes).

Good vibes as always. Happy weekend!

P. S. I’m tinkering a bit. My apologies also if you got notifications on some very old posts! Don’t know what happened! 🙂


Happy Sunday!


I feel very rusty. I haven’t written anything in more than two months!

One of the things that I have really missed the past months is writing. It was just not possible to pick it up due to the crazy times I had. My mind felt numb, my creative juices, seemingly frozen.

My apologies again for the lack of updates. When I started blogging, and writing fan fiction specifically, I promised myself that I will not have huge gaps between my updates, but alas, it didn’t happen that way despite my best intentions!

But, I am back! Thank you for still checking on me. Have a wonderful and blessed Sunday with your loved ones!  Good vibes as always.


Be Careful With My Heart @ 4

Happy birth anniversary to a beloved and much missed show! Gone for almost two years but certainly not forgotten! Not by a long shot.


No moving on for me when it comes to Be Careful With My Heart. Not with the DVD, all the beautiful memories to remember it by, all the fan fiction, and especially, not after seeing Jodi Sta. Maria and Richard Yap together again on screen. They will be forever Richard Lim and Maya Dela Rosa to me, though I like them as well as Chinggay Villanueva and Frank Sison!

BCWMH Souvenirs

Seeing Richard and Jodi in The Achy Breaky Hearts filled me with nostalgia for BCWMH. There were scenes in the movie which reminded me so much of the series. Now, I’m thinking of watching all 52 DVD of episodes and the wedding DVD again, maybe after I have catch up on all my blog backlog!

BCWMH DVD Collection

Here’s a toast to a most memorable series! It has been a wonderful, beautiful journey! Cheers, good vibes, and kapit-bisig for always, my fellow adiks.

My Sunflower World @ 2 !!!



Happy to be celebrating another milestone! My Sunflower World turns 2! Two years as a blogger, amazing! It was a dream I thought I would be unable to realize, but here I am, embarking on my third year! 🙂

From the bottom of my heart, a million thanks to all of you who had supported me, and continues to be there, through thick and thin, updates, slow updates, to no updates at all, for another wonderful, roller coaster, interesting and lovely year for me on blogosphere.

Here’s to another year, and another, and another, and another…!

Cheers and good vibes (and countless cups of coffee and adventures) for always!

Updates of Love Happens and Slow Burn coming up in a day or two! 🙂


I’m back! (for the nth time!:-))

Bench by the Lake

It felt like it has been ages since the last time I really log into this site. I miss being here and interacting with you. My apologies for disappearing so long. The updates are slowly coming together and I hope to upload one or two in the next couple of days.

I had a wonderful vacation, one of the longest my family and I took in a while. The photo above is from one of the relaxing places we have been to. When we got home, I had a difficult time recovering from jet lag. It took weeks for my sleeping pattern to return to normal. (How come it is getting more difficult to recover from jet lag as one gets older)!

Yes, I also turned a year older weeks ago! 🙂

My little one went back to school, and I got busy doing a major spring cleaning afterwards. It was also a way to clear my head. Just like I have written before, I do it from time to time to clear the mind! I am not completely done with that, but that is for another day. For now, I am back to writing to keep me sane! 🙂

Cheers and good vibes! I hope everyone is doing well and that you are still all there, following this blog. 🙂



Good morning!


Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well! It has been over a month since I last posted and it was not my intention to let it that long. My apologies! I got busy preparing for a trip that my family and I decided to take. I just want you to know that I’m still here and will resume writing as soon as I can, and that I didn’t just disappear from the face of earth! 🙂 I do missed writing very much but I am still settling in where I am at the moment after frantically preparing for the trip in less than a month. I will go back to it in the next couple of days. Cheers and good vibes always!

Finding my place in the sun


Starbucks 2


More often than not, I’m at my favorite coffee shop, laptop open, my current playlist on, and while sipping my drink of choice, I try to write or think of stuff to write about.

Ever since I started going here, I find myself more productive, and that amid the buzzing and going-ons of my fellow customers and the friendly crew, I write better! I found my groove here for some reason, of all the cafe and coffee shops I have been to!

Most of the time, when I go home, I have a working draft to polish. There were days, though, that I would just spend my afternoon in this place, meeting friends and catching up!

I just thought of writing about it as I feel happy and thankful. I never thought, that one day I will be able to fulfill a dream: to sit in a coffee shop, weaving words into stories, blog posts, drawing inspirations from my surroundings, writing online fulltime, pursuing a passion.

The opportunity came, and here I am enjoying it to the fullest. For now, this is my universe. I do hope I can stay here for the longest time! Keeping my fingers crossed!

Now I’m off to polishing the chapter I have finished this afternoon! Have a great evening or day everyone. Good vibes always! Thank you, again and again, for reading my work!

Windows and horizons

Calle Crisologo Vigan Coffee Time

Happy New Year!

It is now five days into 2016! I hope you all had a beautiful and memorable celebration with your loved ones. I managed to, and that was why I disappeared again from blogosphere!

Saying goodbye to 2015 was bittersweet! It was an eventful year for me, with its share of blessings, sadness, ups and downs, new adventures, and drastic changes. But all in all, it was not really a bad year for me, not a bad year at all!

Welcoming 2016, is like looking out of that window, or gazing at the horizon, wondering what is out there, what is in store for me, for everyone. With it, is the feeling of anticipation and excitement, of thinking of all the possibilities out there, of what I will discover and experience, within me, and around me.

I do hope, pray, and wish that 2016 will be a better year for all of us. It is another year, another chance of realizing our dreams, fulfilling the goals we have set for ourselves, embarking on new adventures, and enjoying life to the fullest with our loved ones.

Cheers, and here’s to sharing another year with you! Thank you for all the love and the good vibes the past year, and the year before that, when I first ventured into blogging and interacted with you guys! I have discovered a new and wonderful world and here I am here to stay!

Thought Process


Sometimes, I need to have some sort of order in my head before I can write. The same applies when I am mulling over something, like decisions to make, course of action to take, and such. When I seemed to be stuck about something, I need some sort of order around me.

Usually, I rearranges the room in the house I have converted into my ‘me’ place, sometimes, our living room. If the pieces of furniture in the house can speak, they would probably mutter, here we go again, every time I’m in my rearranging mood!

My husband is used to this quirkiness, so are my siblings and my mother, and my friends whom I have shared a dormitory room and apartments. For sure, I’m not the only one with this quirk!

My collection of DVDs and CDs are arranged alphabetically and according to genres (as much as I could)!  My computer files  are organized in folders and sub-folders, and my digital photos into albums with sub-labels (though I have a terrible backlog on this)! I used to lovingly arranged my paper photos in albums (I guess no one does that, really, anymore)! The cables and wires in the house are tied neatly with colorful ties and hidden from sight, as much as it could be done!

I have bought tons of organizers. They are like magnets to me, can’t resist ’em every time I see them, especially the ones that look very functional, and of course, cute! You name it, I probably have it!

I feel so much better, happier, and can think clearer, after I have finished my ‘organizing’ project of the moment.

Now, I’m about to embark on another ‘organizing’ project, hence this post. 🙂

Please indulge me as I would make some changes on the chapters of Beyond Forever I have already uploaded. I have been thinking about this for a time, but decided not to, really. But, I just can’t get it out of my head, so I’ll go ahead with it.

I would be separating the ‘past’ narrative from the ‘present’ ones. Please bear with me as I have to reload some materials that you have already read and commented on. Promise, the story will be moving along smoothly, hopefully, after this! 🙂 The latest update would be labelled Chapter 7!

Finding my way back!


Hello everyone! I’m still here. My apologies for taking a very long break from blogosphere. I’m already working on the latest installment of some of the stories that I have started. I took a vacation from writing, sort of, among a host of things, and also had a ‘real vacation’, which I have not done so, in a while.

I managed to put a check on one of the items in my ‘bucket list’, that is to see the heritage houses in Silay, Negros Occidental. I have been wanting to go there for ages! I really did it! It was a wonderful five-day vacation, touring not only the ancestral houses in Silay, but also exploring Talisay, and soaking in Bacolod.

Please bear with me and I would have something for you in the next couple of days. Thank you again, for the support!

Oh, and the typewriter photo above is from The Ruins in Talisay! 🙂
