Ipon Challenge (Trash to cash)

For this blog entry, I'll try to tell you how I indirectly teach my tiny tot about the importance of money. As a mom, I have to always deal with budgeting our finances to survive week by week. It is exhausting and frustrating and no one prepared me to do these adulting stuff. Although, to …

Avocado (2nd month Update)

The last time I posted about my avocado was October 7th and I'm happy to say that the 4 seeds I tried to sprout were successful. One is growing quite well, the 2 others were just transferred to a small pot but they are both thriving well (I gave one seedling to my father-in-law) while …

Getting lost in Tokyo (Sky tree and Akihabara)

That being said, most visitors go here to see the entire view of the metropolis and other sights like the Mt. Fuji. A word of advice though, you have to expect a long …

Welcome to Aomori, Japan! (Day 1)

Avocado and others (1 month update)

A month or so has passed since I tried the lifehack avocado germinating experiment and here are some photos of how well they're doing now. (Yes, the lifehack is TRUE so I recommend ya'll to try it yourself). Two weeks after poking and submerging some seeds into a cup, one seed germinated fast. It developed roots while the …

Avoid this same mistake!

I have become so obsessed with trying to improve my writing skill by reading as much as I can. I’ve been reading all sorts of things from grammar books to self-help books, news articles and blog posts, but I never really tried “applying” whatever techniques I have learned (or observed) from all those reading. Lately, …
