Be Carbon-Neutral!

So I’ve been traveling a lot for personal and work reasons (like I’ve never spent any week in one place for two months; and haven’t been in one place in any given month this year!) and it got me thinking that I’ve been adding so much to my carbon footprint!!! Literally panicking because duh I’m like the first one to die if the globe goes fever pitch.

I’ve read about being carbon-neutral then – and also because our company Mindshare‘s latest global huddle partnered with Veridium who works with companies to neutralize their carbon footprint; and it really got me how I could neutralize my own carbon footprint – starting with my flights!

So how it works is that your carbon footprint has a dollar (or in this case pound) equivalent. Companies like ClimateCare works with certified projects that help the environment reduce effects of global warming and help people who are most vulnerable to its effects.

This calculator is from ClimateCare and it helps you figure out how much your flight costs in carbon footprint and in pounds. And it also includes other form of travel. There are other carbon-neutrality calculators out there that also factor in your electric consumption, food consumption, and other things – but I think starting small is also key to getting into the habit.

You’ll start to see this calculator in my sidebar – as this is something I want to constantly want to remind people about – especially those who travel a lot!

P.S. Let’s travel responsibly, guys!
P.P.S. I’m on a bit of hiatus since I moved to Singapore – but will try to post more postcards!

Hello from Singapore!

Hey there, how’s it going? I think this is the nth time I’m telling you that I’m back – but not really because I got sent to Singapore for work for three weeks (!!!!!!). I’ve been meaning to update you but I’m busy participating.

I’ve been here since last week – and the city has nothing been short of amazing. I’ve already met a lot of people – both in and out of work. My liver is being tested with all of this participation but of course, it’s a hustle too because I’m still doing work that’s in Manila while training here. But I’m super psyched to learn about new stuff – while in a city, albeit I’ve been to three times already, that I’m still acquainting myself with.

Today is the start of Week 2. My friend and officemate who was with me last week flew back to Manila already – so I’m practically by myself now. Not that I haven’t traveled by my own before, but #sepanx. I guess it’s time to make new friends here.

I’m happy that I got to sneak in a lil time to update. Photos to follow – or follow me on Instagram for my finds!

Spring Cleaning x Updates

I’m really back… please believe me, lol.

(Did you notice the new blog design? Hehe!)

It’s been a while since I sent out that my hiatus is over, but I really haven’t posted anything after that, have I? I’m still trying to get into the grove, but like what Charlie said, “I’m [also] busy trying to participate.”

Loving what I do (at work) and loving the people I work with gave me the best opportunity to participate. I’ve just turned one year in my job (I haven’t been telling everyone because I’m tryna escape the libre haha) and so far it has been good. I’ve even made quite a few friends! Everyone’s been so crazy!

Our office is an insane hodgepodge and that’s what makes it really special. We don’t have fancy game rooms or out-of-this-world sleep booths (though we won’t complain if there is!) but all the hard work (sometimes) seem a little easier to bear with these crazies around.

And I am so proud that I still have a social life! There aren’t much people that I call friends, but I’m glad I can find time to hang out with them. If it’s not game night or wine night or both, we’ll prolly meet up just to sit and do whatever. Two weeks ago, we’ve been to Baguio – and it was cool and rainy there. I loved the rain – it gave the place so much depth than it already has.

I even get to see people I haven’t met for a while. Downing a shot of tequila or two and trying to remember good ol’ days. But we don’t need to miss each other, as well.

And jeez, I can’t believe I’m telling you this – I’m trying to be fit. Could you believe that?

This past year (I think it has been a year since I wrote something decent here, yes) was a rollercoaster, a whirlwind. I’ll have it no other way. But I miss sharing these things to you –

I wish I have more time to talk to you! I’ll make time – I’ll try.

(Expect more posts in the coming days, that’s for sure!)

Quick update

I ama gravely sorry about the recent bugging down of this site my loyal one-two-maybe-three readers 🙁 Lately I’ve been experiencing problems with my host (huhu) and I’m delayed on a lot of posts. Haha, I like listening to myself when I say that I have a plan (lightbulb!) because it just sounds so nice.

So while it’s bugged down, (no worries though, I found out that the bug seems to be on the admin side and not on the reader’s. So yay you can read my other posts then) I’m catching up on my favorite Youtubers!! And Troye’s (HAHA first name basis) music video for Happy Little Pill is now out!
