Clean and green travels by biking

Hello Sunshine! Few days ago, the #SportsKoAyosDito was uploaded on YouTube. The first time I saw this video, I was already touched. I love how the campaign inspires people to go ahead and try out that one thing they want to try. It reminded me of my chummy email signature almost ten years back: "go, do that one thing. do that one thing and go."

Today, I have more bike-related news perfect for those looking for bikes whether to have a healthy mind and body, to help reduce one’s carbon footprint, or to help commuters save money.

Mothers Know Best

Hello Sunshine! Before I begin this post, I want to introduce to share with you a photo of my mom and I, pic-stitched for my convenience... cause you see few days ago, I was trying to see where we look alike, as most people always note! (Of course I used my "beauty blogger face-on selfie" since my mom is always looking all made up!)

I don't see it, do you?????

Sample Room Christmas Dinner

Hello Sunshine! How's the holiday traffic going? Last night, I had the most horrifying cab ride. I couldn't go home because uber surge was just death! And it was already midnight, I was so tired... so I took a cab and agreed to adding extra on top of the taxi meter. Now, just when you think that's the worst part of my trip, you're wrong! The cab driver went on and on about how he takes advantage of passengers when there's just too many out on the streets. It was really creepy. He even teased about how I look like I'm moneyed that's why he asked me to add extra on the fare... it was so bad. I felt very unsafe...

Anyway, I'm OK and I just wanted to check up on you guys. I hope everyone's OK too. Always make sure you're street smart especially when you're commuting!

Now for the bit of good news. Last week I enjoyed a wonderful evening with my Sample Room family. We had our Sample Room Christmas Dinner and it was definitely filled with love. This Christmas is extra special for me because I feel like I have so many things to be thankful for. It was a pretty good year despite the unexpected turn arounds. I look forward to 2015 with a bit of fear on my knees... but my head is up high. I learned a lot the past year and I feel more ready to face more adventures and self-discoveries!
