Spent an entire day at Fort Lauderdale before we went on our cruise. Checked in to our hotel, went to look for a place to have dinner and definitely had a hard time finding one. Had to Yelp some places but when we went there, they're mostly closed. Then it started raining cats and dogs, got stuck at Walgreens for a few minutes and did some souvenir shopping for a while. Had to do more research at Yelp and finally found a restaurant near our hotel. Had to dine at Pei Wei (typical Asians looking for Asian food lol) and glad to say, food and service was definitely worth it after all the hike and being drenched under the rain. It would be awesome to have the day all sunny and bright but the weather wasn't cooperative at all. Humidity reminded me of the tropics and it started to feel like summer. Finally met the much needed RNR.
Legalized! Ahhhh! I'm finally 21! The feels! Thankful for another year bestowed on me. I've been anxious/excited to be turning 21 and I don't know the exact reason why. Adulthood perhaps? Can't wait for the exciting days to come. I don't really have a certain wish during my birthdays. All I know is that I am forever thankful for my dear family and friends, the shelter that keeps me safe and sound, the bed where I'm able to get enough sleep, a full time job, good health, eyes that are able to see, feet and hands that function well, a body that feels happy to be alive. I'm excited to be on this journey called life and the moments it's gonna bring me. To new experiences and crazy rides! Bring it on!
Touchdown Florida! Already having separation anxiety as I go through tons of photos during my vacation. Spent a day in Fort Lauderdale, Florida before our cruise. I knew that it's gonna be humid in Florida so I double checked my airport dressing. Also, checked the weather ahead of time and it showed that Ft. Lauderdale's gonna be gloomy. Wore something light and comfortable, enough to cope up with the hustle and bustle of airports. Welcomed with torrential downpour and thunderstorms with no appropriate rain gear, ended up with minimal explorations in the city. Thank you Florida, it was short and sweet.

I can't contain my excitement. In a few days, we'll be flying to Florida and go on a cruise to Eastern Caribbean. It is my first out of town trip ever since I moved to the United States and it will be my first experience cruising as well. I have never been this excited packing. Can't wait for my summer adventure. Brb, have to finish packing.
Finally got my feet a new pair of slides. I have been looking for this specific style from Givenchy and it seems to be all sold out everywhere and the next restocking would be in September. I still had my hopes high and never gave up until I found one. Guess what? It's my size too! Farfetch.com saved my life. They had one all the way from Italy and without any doubt, had to order one and finally got my feet happy.
