We are the Greatest Revolution of Outstanding Online Tutors. We are (the) G.R.O.O.T. Thank you for such a fun camp, RareJob PH Incorp! What I enjoyed best was meeting my demo lesson “partners” from Japan, especially Joji-san!!! ❤




Thank You, 2016!

Another year is about to end, which means it’s time for me to write something lengthier than usual. Facebook’s On This Day feature allowed me to look back through my old year-end posts, and I noticed these recurring themes: food, friends, family, and fun!


In recent years, Instagrammers have been posting their best 9 pictures, especially from October to December. I generated mine earlier, and it’s composed of mostly food shots! During the first part of 2016, I attended foodie events on almost a weekly basis, which made me constantly have content for my YouTube channel. Thank you to all the restaurant owners and managers who believe in our capacity to help them, and for the great food, of course!


My best 9 on Instagram! @astroboyisgay



Food is best shared with friends, right? This year, some people I met through Zomato decided to form The Food Crawlers. Although we have different roles, – writers, photographers, vloggers – one thing we have in common is our love for food! I particularly value the ideas they have for my vlogs, especially when they gamely participate in them! They’re such creative, witty, and fun people to be with! I value them a lot, especially Mickey and Richard!


The Food Crawlers!

Another group of friends I am grateful for are my fellow RareJob tutors (and also some of the staff), particularly the “Antwehs and Titas.” They are the kind of people you’d very much want to work with because they continuously lift you up with inspiring stories, contagious laughter, and motivational advice! No crab mentality at all! Although our job is home-based, it feels like we’re one huge happy family thanks to constant chatting and regular meet-ups. We all love RareJob for bringing us together, allowing us to earn well, helping us grow as educators, and providing chances for everyone, everywhere! In case you’re interested to join us, register now! 🙂

Speaking of family, my dad visited the Philippines in February and stayed for a month. One month felt like only a week, though! It felt great to fetch him at the airport, but it was devastating when he already had to leave! When he looked back at me and my sister, all of us savored the moment because we didn’t, and still don’t know, when will we be seeing each other again. I hope our mom and brother could also visit soon! Fingers crossed!


An extended birthday celeb with my dad and sister. Oh, I turned 30 this year!


I’ve always been a positive person, so enjoying life is something I’m good at! I had so much fun not just with my family and friends, but also with the love of my life, my dear Leo! We celebrated our 6th anniversary in July, and for a change, we decided to celebrate it by traveling to Cebu! It was both our first time there, making the trip even more memorable! I renewed my passport in September, while he finally applied for one in October, so hopefully, we could plan an international trip soon! I love you, dear! :-*


My dear. ❤

And that’s a wrap for 2016! Cheers to an even better 2017!


2016 Project 365, Day 226: Mine Shift

Photo #226: August 13

Ever heard of “multiple intelligence”? Well, I know that I wasn’t gifted with a lot of it, especially the logical-mathematical and visual-spatial kinds, so I’m not good at solvng puzzles or playing games like Mine Shift. However, when my gems started finding their way to a targeted base, I started to become competitive, carefully calculating my next moves, and voilà! I won on my first try!!!! I don’t care if it’s beginner’s luck; it was satisfying!!!! 🙂Find this game and more at Burger Company PH!!! Grab some bacon dippers while you’re at it. 🙂



2016 Project 365, Day 223: Pokémon GO Lure Party

Photo #223: August 10

Attended Burger Company PH‘s 4-hour Pokémon GO Lure Party! I caught a lot of Pokémon, including Scyther, Onix, Oddish, Magikarp, Staryu, Exeggcute, Dodrio, Pinsir, and Nidoran (both male and female). I also hatched a Ponyta! But my greatest catch whenever I visit BCo would have to be their sinfully good BACON DIPPERS. Glorious lightly battered strips of yummy bacon, best dipped in cheese sauce or spiced vinegar! Thank you for the lures and Poké tour, BCo!!! :-*
