Hello December!

This weekend (including Monday) = best ever! Great way to start December.
Hopefully all days will be as productive and fun.

Don't mind the bad collage, I'm not very good at this wah


Where to eat in San Juan?!

Last Friday, I was assigned to write an article about the best places to eat around San Juan (Wilson/P. Guevarra, specifically). So I set out with a friend and walked around for an hour or so looking for restaurants to try out.

long breaks + lots of good food + a good friend = a very full and happy Issa!



Currently suffering from very, VERY slow internet and a confused brain. I'll need to cover an event for our campus publication tomorrow at 8-12, go to class at 1-3, then go and *hopefully* finish the layout from 3-5 in the afternoon. After 5, I've got no idea what's next. Probably continue the layouting, get ready for the seminar I'll be speaking in next week, and my homework. Yikes.

But enough about that! Last Wednesday, I went to Tagaytay with my aunt and mum, but stayed there for just a bit before going back home. I didn't expect it to be so cold, assuming that we're in a country that's almost never cold, but I brought my favorite #insta sweater, just in case. As always, goin' for the hipster casual kind of look, I guess.


first ever look of 2014!

The moment sem break ended, I had an asthma attack and am still feeling sort of bleh until today. I celebrated my two week anniversary with my asthma two days ago. Funny how my asthma stuck to me longer than most relationships.

I'm still feeling bad, so I decided what better way to make myself feel better than to dress up? I brought out the bandeau top my aunt gave me a week before, found interest on my mom's kimono jacket, and of course, my oh-so-favorite shorts, and an outfit is made!

Issa 2014

Wow, it's been over a YEAR since I last posted and saw this blog! This time, I promise to post regularly.

Now, what has happened to Issa during the past year?

For starters, I'm in college! Yes, I'm finally in college, suffering enjoying my second semester as a freshman. My course? Accountancy. Wish me luck! I'm also now part of our campus publication as layout artist, and part of Lifebox, a life group that devotes their time to helping students become leaders through the guidance of God (Can you believe it?!).

Second, I lost almost 50 pounds since the last time I posted. WHEEEEE this is what makes me super happy! Sooner or later, I'll create a post about my weight loss journey and how I did it. In the meantime, you can check my Tumblr a.k.a. fitblr for my personal posts and stats.

Just to compare: The day I last posted (PROM March 17, 2013!) to October 21, 2014.
A year and a half difference. ;-)
