Cool Change, Literally!

I can't believe I'm finally here in Buffalo, New York. I arrived last Feb 25 and my point of entry was JFK. From NYC, Buffalo is an hour's away by air but if you drive, it would take about seven hours to get here. From the plane, I thought all the roofs here are white, hahaha.

Except for the cold weather, things are good--food, people, places. What I like about winter is seeing everything covered in snow. It looks like a Christmas village. Of course, I can also wear boots and coat every day without looking silly. You see, in Manila, it's too hot to wear boots so it's not practical to do so.

The best part though of being here is not the OOTD but being with Mr. Knightman!

Anyway, Spring is finally here! Here's a pic I took on the first day of Spring, March 20, 2014. I wished for higher temps that day but we greeted the vernal equinox with snow showers and freezing temps instead! Guess it will take a few more days (or weeks?) to get warmer weather. All I can do is wait.

Whew! October!

It's true what astrologer Susan Miller said in her October forecast, this month will be challenging. I am feeling it, although thankfully not as much as the Cardinal signs. First off, expected payments have been delayed and certain things as well.

But... I'm still thankful because things have just been delayed during this Mercury Retrograde phase. By November 10, things will be working great again. Not all things are bad this month though. My cover story for UNO GUAM MAGAZINE is out, delayed by two weeks. If you get the chance, check it out. I did an exclusive interview with Miss World Guam 1st runner-up Lisa Pachkoski.

October is still a few days to go and I will use the remaining retrograde days fixing things, organizing stuffs, packing and a lot of things. Transformation is still in the works. I know better days are waiting for all of us.

Enjoy life! Be good.

At Last!

Finally after a little over five months of waiting, our petition got approved. It was overdue since California Service Center processes K1 an average of three months. My fiance's petition was sent to Vermont Service Center because he lives in the East Coast then transferred to Texas Service Center after four months.

Anyway, I'm not here to complain but to say thanks since USCIS didn't find the need to request for evidence (RFE). Now, I need to review the checklist while waiting for the USEM (US Embassy) notice. I am so excited another step is over. I'll now prepare for the medical and interview.

It's such a happy week since my fiance got the approval notice on Monday, almost midnight (Tuesday in Manila). Though there will still be considerable waiting time (two months on the average) to get the visa, I am just glad that things are finally moving! What a way to end this month. Thank you July and looking forward to August, my birth month!

Curious if Star of David helped. Hmmm...

My New Project

You might think it's a new writing project but it is far from that. I am now busy collecting stones. Yes! Actually, I've had stones since high school. That was the time when my father worked in Brazil and brought home some stones from South America. So I have black onyx ring, hematite necklace, amethyst pendant, clear quartz and rose quartz from Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina.

I didn't realize that they have powers or carry certain energy. I just noticed that whenever I activate my black onyx, the people that I want to get out of my life really did that for good. No! It didn't mean they died, they just either relocated or resigned from work, like that.

Anyway, a psychic-friend (hello Madam!) gifted me with matching rose quartz necklace and bracelet. Since then, love is all around. hahahaha. If you are not a believer, that's up to you. I believe that energy exists. If something, like my stones, can transform negative to positive, when needed, I am up for it. What's wrong with wearing rose quartz and amethyst anyway? They look gorgeous! And if black tourmaline and black onyx can protect me from bad elements (people included), I will wear a chunkful! hahahaha

So anyway, I am currently having an inventory of my precious collection because I have added more lately. My amethyst earrings are from Thailand. I'm so excited in getting that Carnelian, Sardonyx and more Hematite. Also, I'll add up on rose quartz, amethyst and jade in a few days! Oh, and the moonstone! I gotta have it too. My Sunstone needs a partner! I gave my nieces my two moonstone pendants plus rose quartz earrings. You're so lucky Xandra and Lexi!

May we all be happy, healthy and fulfilled! Sat Nam!

Full Moon in Libra

I anticipated this month's full moon in Libra because my fave astrologer called it "monster moon". If all monsters were that beautiful then nobody would mind the term. Just the same, the moon I think shouldn't be called a monster like empowered astrology said. This moon was supposed to be intense and powerful it will bring to fruition whatever you started in Sept 2012. I was trying to remember what was I doing during the previous "monster moon"? Have I started anything? hmmmm

I read the tweets and many people either have broken up with their gf/bf/husband/wife/partner, had little misfortune or got the shock (or surprise!) of their life courtesy of the moon. Since I wasn't a cardinal sign I was out of the moon's path so I only had experienced good things during this period (+/- 4 days of March 27). Maybe it's a good thing that I work from home so I didn't get pissed off by emotionally charged co-workers. Or because it is holy week and people are looking forward to a long vacation that they didn't bother to entertain negative thoughts.

For whatever reason, things are turning up roses and I can feel it to my bones (hahaha). Besides I have cleansed and charged my crystals so I feel protected. Thanks to my black onyx ring, it has always protected me from negative people. I've had it since high school. Go figure!

Happy Easter everyone. Don't forget to thank the universe.

Reboot Refresh Restart

Today is a good day to start something new. Since it is the first day of the month, it is easy for me to monitor my progress whatever it is that I want to transform or redo in my life. So the question is, what do I want to focus my energy on to complete the transformation.

I want to reboot my social life, for sure. I want to meet new people, add more friends, learn new lessons and grow. I don't miss the fancy parties that I enjoyed when I was in my twenties. Although I am thankful that I was able to experience them, it is not something that I want to bring back. Past is past. Doors have been closed. I am letting them go with gratitude and love. It is time for new adventures.

I want to refresh my romantic relationship. It's not that it has gone stale or got stuck in the mud. But moving forward and progressing to the next step is the most natural (and also logical) thing to do. :)

I want to refresh my skills. Updating what I already have is so exciting. It is so inspiring to learn from the young ones, old-timers and people who are generous enough to share what they have. I don't intend to outdo anybody, to be more popular or to just smack in somebody else's face that I am better than he/she is. I want to become better than what I am now. I just want to celebrate my uniqueness and universe's special gifts.

Anyway, I am in a happy place now. I am so blessed.

N.B. My fiance and I are celebrating our 6th anniversary!!! I love you baby! And I know you love me too, XOXO.

Cheers to better days, more joys and beautiful challenges. ♥♥♥

Things Have Changed

November is such a great month despite Mercury being retrograde. My baby (my bf of five years) and I went out of town (to Puerto Princesa City in Palawan), attended parties, met with old friends and made new ones. Spending time together is always something that I look forward to because we laugh a lot every time we are together. In fairness, my bf has a good sense of humor. He is really funny, smart (he's a mathematician, you know :=P) and sociable (not to mention super good-looking (?) hahaha).

Looking back, I noticed that things have really changed for the better. I am so grateful.
