  1. Thank you so much for nominating us!! ❤

    Paige: The only places in our country that I've been to outside of Luzon are Davao and Cebu (which are both wonderful)! I LOVE English as well, and we don't really have Mythology, but History is one of my favorites too. I'm not really friendly in real life, either. It takes me MONTHS to get out of the awkward stage, and YEARS to get really comfortable with a person!

    Yasmin: SO jealous that you get to travel so much! I've never gotten out of Asia, sadly. But hooray for rereading Harry Potter! I just finished the fourth book this year. 🙂 I also LOVE drawing on my hands (and arms… and legs…). I'm trilingual too (English, Tagalog and Mandarin, which I suck at), but can also understand a bit of Hokkien. AND OMG YES TO THE GR THING. It's… ugly. Really.

    Welcome to the bookish community, you two! ❤

    • Thank you for the endearing comment, and warm welcome, Aimee! And I bet you’ll be traveling the world soon enough, and in the meantime enjoy Asia! It’s a great continent. Also, I hope you really really really love the Harry Potter series. It will always hold a special place in my heart 🙂
