A clean slate

a clean slate

There’s that saying, “this time last year, everything was so different“. It really is true. Here I am writing this post, in a completely different place in life and as content as I was in my last post, quite a bit has happened along the way that’s shaped me and led me to an even better version of myself.

Where have I been?


A friend and I recently had a conversation about blogging which got me feeling very guilty about how I’ve been neglecting it’s tricia for quite a while now.

Last June, I put out Life lately where I talked about an exciting opportunity that was happening in my life. On top of that internship, I was working a second job, teaching and four weeks ago, my final year of university began. So basically, I’ve been doing six-day weeks consisting of two jobs and classes. And fitting in any possible form of social life in my free time. So to say the very least, I’ve been very exhausted.

Things have slowly calmed down now – just working one job and finally having some free time by the end of the week – I even went for a hike yesterday! So I’d really love to get back into writing. Especially because I know I have things to write about. If you haven’t realized it already, it’s tricia is pretty much a travel blog. It becomes active when I travel. The exact same way my Instagram feed comes alive. So yes, I have been doing some travelling lately and I have another trip in a couple of weeks!

But nonetheless, busy just means blessed. Lots of great things have been happening lately: as mentioned above, I was in Korea for 10 days last month, I turned 21 a couple weeks ago and I made it on the Dean’s List!

I guess that’s it for now. And hopefully, see you again very soon :)

A Miraculous Stop

The best part of a road trip is that you get to pass by some great stopovers along the way. Enroute to Baguio, we stopped at the Candle Gallery of the Manaoag Basilica in Pangasinan where the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary of Manaoag sits. I didn’t know much about it but I’ve heard of its miraculous powers.

Life Lately: June edition

June Life Lately

Snapped this photo earlier today of my view from work as preparations are well underway for tomorrow’s Dragon Boat Festival (a public holiday for us in Hong Kong! yes!). I just wanted to give a quick update with what’s been going on with me because I feel like I’m at a point where I’m really so content with everything that’s been happening.
