Day 23 » 15 facts about you.

1. I am 29 years old.

2. I sneeze every day.

3. I love to travel.

4. I love sweets.


I won’t finish the list because this has got to be the most boring topic in the challenge and I’m sleepy. I wish I had access to some Vietnamese street coffee right now.


Day 22 » A letter to someone who has hurt you recently your fairy godperson.

Dear fairy godperson,

Please make it easier for me and my loved ones to travel wherever we wish. Sometime the world seems so small but in reality, we are too far apart.

I wish for an ideal world where we can visit loved ones who are living in other countries whenever we feel like ‘just stoping by’. I wish for time and economics to matter less. I wish we can have the luxury to go wherever we want to without having to worry about visas and the like.

Please grant me this wish.


Day 21 » A photo of something that makes you happy.

The beach makes me happy.

I love the sound of the water, I love the sand, I love the smell of sun block, I love everything that has to do with beaches.

Speaking of…it’s been way too long since I’ve been to the beach.

Day 20 » The meaning behind your blog name.

Bah. This is really not interesting and I had no idea which picture to match with this post so here’s a random picture of hats sold in Vietnam.

My name is ‘Miriam’ if you want to know what it means, google will tell you. Instead, I’ll tell you something google can’t tell you. I’ll tell you why I have that name.

According to my reliable sources, the reason for my name is because my dad was tired of naming all of his kids with names that start with the letter ‘J’ and at the time I was born, my dad was reading a book with a character named ‘Miriam’ in it. He also heard from someone that the letter ‘M’ is lucky so he liked the name ‘Miriam’ more because it has two ‘M’s in it.  That is the reason why I have my name.

Day 19 » Another picture of yourself.

I’ve never been ashamed to admit that I’m a ‘cam whore’.  The weird thing is I hate taking solo shots. It makes me feel insecure and my smiles come out awkward. So my reflex in solo shots always makes me look away and stuff something in my mouth.

Day 18 » Something you crave a lot.

This post feels like a repeat of Day 10. But I guess it reinforces that I do crave it a lot.

Yummm…it’s been a long time since I’ve had froyo! The last time I had it was about a week ago. THE HORROR!

Day 17 » A photo of you and your family.

My brothers, sisters, parents, and I have not been in the same country since the 1980’s. When I got married this past July, we were finally all together and we were able to take this family picture.  All the stress of wedding preparations were worth it just to have everyone together even for only a day.

Oh, by the way, this was the ‘wacky’ shot. I love this picture.

This one includes Renz, the in-laws, and the pamangkins.
