First Credit Card

It’s feel like I’m a big girl now!

Sorry for the introduction, but I just can’t hide my excitement of getting my very first credit card. For the longest time my family forbids me on getting one, they know the hassle of having debts and they know that I am an impulsive buyer too. 😀

But right this moment where they didn’t know I get one might surprise them for reals!

Revamping my Instagram Account

 

I’ve been thinking of deleting my old Instagram posts this past few days. As much as possible I just wanted to post my adventures and happy memories (and keeping it neat when it comes to filter choices, using frames and etc.).

But whenever I say those words I always ended up taking photos of places where I eat and pictures of my throwback memories. I’ve tried to find another solution by creating anew IG account but the problem is, it’s not the account named after me.

In the end, I ended up deleting my 300+  photos down to 80+ something, damn I wish Instagram has an option to organize your filters at the same time re-arranging your photos. But for now it will be a tedious job for me to think what filter should I use and what photos should I upload too.

PS. Dear imaginary followers give me sometime to update all my post including images.  Enjoy Stalking 🙂

Enjoy Life

Out of the blue I opened to my colleague about my life, particularly about my goals in life (still unknown as of this moment) fair enough we both have the same drama in life.

The story goes. I told her that why I can’t still find the path that I should have taken that will makes me happy? I even mentioned to her about my life, my career, my friends’ life (who knows what they want). And suddenly she admits that she also feels the same before.

But before the drama continues, she gave me a piece of advice, according to her there is a show in television where the host says that “do not look for the path that you should have taken, instead enjoy what you have right now, yes maybe until know you don’t know what you want but its normal just be happy.”

Maybe all along I should be happy instead of looking.

A Wander Road

So I’m finally giving myself my own hashtag, a few years ago I think when I started being active in instagram. Been wanting to have my so called official hashtag at first I was thinking of using the word “wander” but decided to use the word “adventures” apparently since I have a common name decided to use my first option “wander” but I want something different instead I opt to call it it “wanderroad”. Thank God no one was using it. Though I forgot most of the time to add this on my post. But last night I officially wanted to claim that hashtag. However, there are some using it (though I know I’m the first one to use checking all the post with #wanderroad most of them are new post).

So it all finally went down and yes, my official hashtag would be “#Awanderroad” (A stands for Abie BTW)

It’s kinda crazy to do something like this, but it’s fun anyway.

PS. Decided to rename my blog too.

DIY Travel

Never fond of doing DIY Travel to be honest, if there’s a chance to hire a travel agency or someone who can do all this it will be better but for now I have to endure doing all this travel 101.

To start, it will be a three days and two night trip, supposedly it should be a foursome getaway and due to some changes it’s now me and my boyf who will have to be hands-on doing this travel itinerary.

Friends & Colleagues Travel Experienced

Some say the best way to get into your destination is to ask people who have been there and yes they gave us a lot of recommendations places to stay and go, but unfortunately, since it’s a travel for only two persons, I’d expect a larger amount will cost me and yes it is.

Making Inquiries

I’ve only made one inquiry based on a friend’s recommendation, though even they are trying to give all the possible list that we can do during our travel still I can’t picture out how it will happen

Online vouchers are not exactly the way you wanted to have

If I could turn back time I wished I have searched more on Google places to go and stay.

Apparently we bought a voucher tours via online and the funny thing the images that they are showing in their ads are quite miss leading they are showing you the destination to visit but inside the vouchers  it is not included in the package. READ and DO MORE RESEARCH never trust the image.

In the end they charge us with our additional trip.

Google MAPS is AWESOME

Been plotting all the possible places that I wanted to go using google maps and fortunately it’s really helpful it will show you how long you’re going to get in your destination if your using vehicle and if you opted to walk instead.

So far I have listed a couple places to go and eat and hoping it will be a successful trip.

BEHADAM BABY

FAN GIRL ALERT!

And finally sources says that Behati Prinsloo is preggy and I could’t be more happier after reading news about them (hoping for a baby bump pictures).

Anyway, Behati-Adam is one of my favourite couples in Hollywood needles to say once they start their family they can overtake BRANGELINA on my mind.

And I bet everyone admires Brad Pitt and Angelina , so am I. But unlike Brangelina, Behadam are the new generation – they are the new epitome.

See how they publicly show their cuteness and PDAs, though they are keeping their love story private (I know we are still clueless both wedding and engagement pictures or whatever) but without a doubt they resemble how to be an awesome partner despite of their hectic sched and different profession. They know how to support each other whether vocal or discreet way (and I die after hearing the news that Behati went to the Philippines and watch Maroon 5 😦 )

I just hope they will publicly share photos of their family!

Can’t wait for their baby!

Pottermore: Gryffindor

Gryffindor

As far as I am concerned, I am not a latecomer in Pottermore, I can recall that there is a certain website that I joined about Harry Potter which gives you by the way your unique username. Unfortunately, I couldn’t recall that website anymore, but I believe it’s Pottermore. And my intuition is right, I have to read the whole Wikipedia thing just to find out that I’m right 😀

Anyway, so I started re-joining this website again at first I was afraid that I might not get into Gryffindor, if you’re familiar with the scene where Harry saying “not Slytherin” during the sorting ceremony I was also like that.

After the sorting ceremony, I’ve got my first wand. It’s called a Silver Lime wand which is not included in HP movies only in Pottermore.

Silver Lime

Silver lime

This unusual and highly attractive wand wood was greatly in vogue in the nineteenth century. Demand outstripped supply, and unscrupulous wandmakers dyed substandard woods in an effort to fool purchasers into believing that they had purchased silver lime. The reasons for these wands’ desirability lay not only in their unusually handsome appearance, but also because they had a reputation for performing best for Seers and those skilled in Legilimency, mysterious arts both, which consequently gave the possessor of a silver lime wand considerable status. When demand was at its height, wandmaker Arturo Cephalopos claimed that the association between silver lime and clairvoyance was ‘a falsehood circulated by merchants like Gerbold Ollivander (my own grandfather), who have overstocked their workshops with silver lime and hope to shift their surplus’. But Cephalopos was a slipshod wandmaker and an ignoramus, and nobody, Seer or not, was surprised when he went out of business.

Phoenix

This is the rarest core type. Phoenix feathers are capable of the greatest range of magic, though they may take longer than either unicorn or dragon cores to reveal this. They show the most initiative, sometimes acting of their own accord, a quality that many witches and wizards dislike. Phoenix feather wands are always the pickiest when it comes to potential owners, for the creature from which they are taken is one of the most independent and detached in the world. These wands are the hardest to tame and to personalise, and their allegiance is usually hard won.

12 ¼” in length

The following notes on wand length are taken from notes on the subject by Mr Garrick Ollivander, wandmaker:

Most wands will be in the range of between nine and fourteen inches. While I have sold extremely short wands (eight inches and under) and very long wands (over fifteen inches), these are exceptionally rare. In the latter case, a physical peculiarity demanded the excessive wand length. However, abnormally short wands usually select those in whose character something is lacking, rather than because they are physically undersized (many small witches and wizards are chosen by longer wands).

Slightly Yielding flexibility

The following notes on wand flexibility are taken from notes on the subject by Mr Garrick Ollivander, wandmaker:

Wand flexibility or rigidity denotes the degree of adaptability and willingness to change possessed by the wand-and-owner pair – although, again, this factor ought not to be considered separately from the wand wood, core and length, nor of the owner’s life experience and style of magic, all of which will combine to make the wand in question unique.

There you go my HP journey starts now!
