Booked almost a year ahead, I flew in to the most beautiful island in the world with few to zero expectations. And I think that’s what made this trip even more spectacular.
Our 5-day trip to El Nido, with a side trip to Puerto Princesa, was such an amazing experience. I am honestly lost for words the moment my eyes met the island of El Nido. And we haven’t even gone to the best ones yet.
Before the year ends, let’s go back to all the places I’ve been to for the year that has been. I may not have been able to finish all entries yet (or might decided not to write one for [a] certain trip/s), but here’s where my trusty flip flops and I has gone about.

Today, I had my first ever hand lettering session with my friend and officemate, Cye.
Cye started her lettering journey few years back, 2014 if my memory serves me well. We met through a common friend during halloween last year. It was only during mid of this year when I learned that she’s doing calligraphy and hand lettering.
