I've got nothing to do at the moment so might as well do something productive and blog :) How's everyone? Today's a bit busy day. I went to Lotte Mart with Pierre and bought some stuff! I bought a shirt and sweets for Ted because he's going to arrive tomorrow morning! Can't wait!! <3 I also got some towels and mint and Ponds for my face. If you're asking how's my job hunting, it's perfectly fine. The job came to me actually =p Pierre met this Filipina girl named Cielo and that time I was with August, my Vietnamese friend. August and I wanted to go and drink at District 1 but since she didn't have another helmet, I asked Pierre to borrow his so we went to the restaurant where they were eating. Cielo and I talked about jobs and she recommended me a school. Few days later, she texted me saying that she'd refer me to another school and it was a sure job! So we met again for the 2nd time with her sister and talked about it. Her sister is like the head teacher of that new school somewhere in District 2 which is pretty far from here. The job will start in August. I think school here starts during that time. Not really sure. The interview will take place after a week or two. 


I'm currently drinking this! Soursop juice is <3

Hello everyone!! I'm finally here in Vietnam!! Yayyy :) I've been here for 3 days now and many things already happened! It's pretty crazy here to be honest, but I'm having fun! :) Let me summarize what happened from the day of my flight up to this time :)

WARNING: This is going to be a long post.

21st June (Sunday)

I don't know how to start this but I had a horrible experience with the immigration officers at NAIA Terminal 3 >_< So I gave my passport, ticket, and departure card to this officer that I don't want to name even if I want to. She started to ask me A LOT of questions i.e "Are you a first time traveler?" I said no and handed her my old passport. She asked me if I'm a student, what's my parents job, what's my major, who is my sponsor, what will I do in Vietnam, and the worst question I was afraid people would ask: where is my return ticket. I didn't have a return ticket because I will probably be staying in Vietnam for more than 3 months and I have no idea when will I go back to the Philippines. She asked me to fill out a form and sit beside another officer who will interview me. So the interview went like this:

Immigration Officer: What will you do in VN?
Me: I will meet my boyfriend.
IO: What does he do?
Me: He teaches English. (It was a lie.)
IO: How long will you stay there?
Me: 3 months 
Then I handed her my visa approval letter and N1 Form.
IO: Do you have any photos of you and your boyfriend?
I went to Dropbox on my phone and showed her photos of Ted and I when I was in New Zealand. 
She asked a lot of questions!! >_< My heart was pounding but I tried to kept calm because I'm innocent and I have valid papers EXCEPT I don't have a return ticket. Do you know what the worst part is? SHE TOLD ME TO BUY A RETURN TICKET!!!!!!! So I did! It costed me 72usd :( She even asked me, "What will you do if the Vietnamese officers asked you about this?" which I don't think they will do. So she allowed me to go inside and I tried to walk as fast as I could because I didn't want to miss my flight!! The boarding time was 10:30 PM and I passed thru immigration around 10:20! My backpack was sooooo heavy but I still tried to keep it cool. I was rushing to the gate but good thing the passengers weren't boarding yet!

Ahhh I'm back again! A lot has happened lately and now I'm feeling sick. My head hurts and I think it is because I sleep late every night :x So today I will try to be in bed on or before 12 mn. I know it's still pretty late but it's a bit early for me lol.

I was busy yesterday. As you know I am leaving soon so I went to the supermarket and bought some of the things I need for my trip i.e shampoo, soap, toothpaste, etc. I also received my visa approval letter! Yey! I gotta print all my important docus on Saturday! Anyway, one of the highlights of my post for tonight is.........

I have something to say :) To all the people I know who are still asking about the person who blocked me in all her accounts, please stop asking anymore lol I know I gave you link/s and according to some of you it can't be found anymore so let's leave it at that. I don't want that person to think I am searching for her or anything because I don't and I won't :) Haters gonna hate and potatoes gonna potate :D Hope everyone understands!!

This was on my table when I woke up. I already know what's inside and yes it's my TEFL certificate from UK!  It arrived just in time for my trip :)


I'm glad all my important papers are now complete: Diploma, Transcript of Records from uni, and my TEFL certificate. I also have my newly renewed passport and my flight itinerary WHICH I haven't printed yet! I actually have a lot of papers to bring i.e Ted's letters/cards/photos because I'm going to apply NZ visa in Vietnam but let's not go there first.

To the readers, I encourage you to listen to all the songs I feature on my blog and thank me later <3 :)

As I get older, I realized that losing friends should not be an option. 
I first met this online friend of mine 3 years ago. She was nice. We used to chat almost everyday. We talked different things about love, studies, or just life in general. We told each other things about our past and current boyfriends. In short, we really get along well with each other.
----------------------------
U P D A T E:
For people who view this blog about the issue of my hater "itsmelenalee" being Korean, sorry to burst your bubble, BUT SHE IS NOT KOREAN. If that is the effect of too much Kpop then idk how to treat that LOL this blog post has been receiving tons of views lately and I found out the reason why. Idk what else she's said to you guys. If you videocall her then that's fine, hey guess what? She isn't a catfish. Hurray! But seriously though, she is not Korean. Please Fiezalena or whatever your Malaysian name is, do not be ashamed of your nationality. You already revealed your real face via videocall and yes you are good at speaking Korean, but do not tell others you are Korean because we both know you aren't. Not gonna lie but I'm still looking for more fucks to give about this issue >.>
----------------------------

It was around November when my long distance relationship became unhealthy. And of course since she's my very good friend, I told her everything from what happened up to what I was feeling. She sympathized me and all that and I did the same thing when she was having problems with her partner because that's what friends do, right? But few months later I noticed that she became aloof to me. She's giving me cold replies. I started to worry but at the same time I don't want to question her about it because maybe she was just busy with uni. And because she became distant and I was having relationship problems, I seek help to my other online friend Monica who was Ted's online friend for more or less than 6 years (was because they had a fight lol). I had the guts to question my online friend on why's she treating me that way and her reply was because she's tired of listening to me about Ted (or my relationship problem, maybe). I was literally taken aback because I thought we were friends and friends tell things to each other. Am I wrong? I was seeking comfort to someone whom I thought was my friend and whom I thought was treating me as her friend.

DISCLAIMER:
I don't know how to start this blog. I wanted this to be a happy and very entertaining post but sometimes shit happens and we can't really avoid bad things that come our way. 

I met my good Korean friend last night at 1970 Grill. It's a Korean restaurant that does not serve kimbap and it's a bit disappointing because it is one of my favorite Korean foods. My friend was late so he decided to pay for our food. We ordered samgyeopsal and this meat below.


I forgot what it's called but if I remember correctly this is beef. I'm craving for this again. I wrapped the meat in lettuce and stuffed everything inside my mouth. I felt like I died and went to samgyeopsal heaven. It's a bit expensive but every bite is worth it! We also ordered one bottle of soju and had 4 shots. We weren't contented with the drink so we headed off to Congo Grille for some ohh-la-la-margarita!

I don't know if you guys notice but I have been very silent of what's happening with my lovelife. I bet you don't even know that I'm in a relationship or LDR to be specific :>  I have been posting random quotes or things or rants about love but I've never really had a chance to write something about my own.

I don't really want to prolong my past story because for sure I'm going to write a long rant about it. So first things first, I broke up with him in March because he's treating me like shit. He lied and ignored me many many times so I finally pushed the button and ended it. His reaction? Not sure but he was already expecting it I guess. I also found out that he developed his feelings for someone else but he didn't pursue because I don't know. I asked him why but he could not give me a detailed answer.

If you watch or a fan of Orange Is The New Black, believe me there will always be a Piper Chapman and Alex Vause attitude in us :D
 The first time I watched the S1E1 on the internet, I disliked it because first, there's sex and lesbian sex and second, my parents were here. Well the valid reason is the second but moving on, I forgot why I decided to watch it again few months later. I think it was because I had literally no life that time. I finished ep1, then ep2, then season1, then season2 ep1,  then season2 ep 13, the last episode :( And yeah I know there's season 3 which will be showing this month but Philippines has no Netflix (wait, don't we or do we have Netflix?? lol). I've been so attached to this drama. There were times I was so excited to get up on bed because I'm going to watch OITNB or I didn't want to spend more time in watching because I don't want to end it. Am I the only one who feels like this? :p

The best reason why I love the song and the MV is because of Adam Levine's butt. Free porn for everyone who fantasizes Adam haha too bad he's married =/ Hot guys should stay single forevs D;

Hello everyone! I've been busy complaining how lifeless I was but the looooong wait is over! My parents were here for 3 days and we talked about my Vietnam plans and I already asked their permission to book a flight ticket on the 13th of the month and my dad said "go for it"! Yay! :)) I can book my flight this week but I am still waiting for a cheaper airfare. It was actually cheap yesterday morning but last night it got expensive. I don't understand why Cebu Pacific's airfare is not stable grrr TT_TT My one way ticket costs $116 and my visa approval letter costs $21. I already have money for those because I have Skype classes and my dad gave me 21usd so that'd be good!! I'll just probably book a cheap return ticket. I don't really think I need it but the airlines might question me about it so it's better to be safe than sorry. It's actually hard to plan things since my date of coming back is still uncertain. I might extend since I will be going there for teaching jobs so return ticket is actually a waste of money. And yes I will be a tourist but without purchasing a return ticket does not mean I will stay in Vietnam illegally. Jeez. But anyway I plan to leave on the night of 13th. I hope everything goes according to my plan. I don't want to rebook my flight because it has charges and I literally have no life here. I can't fucking wait to earn $$. And yes I won't be alone in Vietnam. I will be with someone and I might go back to New Zealand as long as I can support myself with the visa and airfare because I can't and I don't want to ask money to my parents anymore. I need a freaking job. Lord knows how much I am dying to get a job. Ugh. THE STRUGGLE IS REAL.

Photos first! :3


My graduation photos!! ^-^ My parents said I don't look like the woman in the picture. Thanks, photoshop!
