Welcome to my humble abode. This is my little space on the interweb. I'm Dianne Kathreen, a 20-something Manila lady always longing for a peaceful and chill moments by the beach.
I'm a web designer and social media marketing assistant by weekdays, and a human by weekends. I work remotely, which is really my dream. Ever since I experienced the Metro Manila traffic and how crazy working in a corporate office when I took my internship, I decided to detach myself from it and work at home instead. Gratefully, the universe conspired to help me achieve it.
I have an affinity for Paulo Coelho books, Rupi Kaur and Lang Leav poetry and prose, coffee, salmon sashimi, dark chocolates, and beach. I used to read, read, and read a lot of books every month, but since adulting and working life is almost eating me alive, I left no energy to read books anymore. However, I'm still hoping that one day, I'll be able to continue to read.
I love traveling to different places, mostly around the Philippines (#pinasmuna, lol!) with my best travel and lifetime partner, Ron. May it be around the metro or provinces with magnificent beaches, I'm definitely in!
Aside from working and traveling from time to time, I also keep myself productive by volunteering in my home church, Victory Pioneer. I'm currently in the young professional community and being led by a beautiful and loving Victory group. Being in this church and being a part of their community helps me to grow stronger in my faith in God.
About my blog
Life + Adventures and Whatnot is my first baby before it bloomed into a beautiful site. As I grow older and more matured (whut?), I have realized that blogging for the sake of earning money and popularity is not for me. It is exhausting to try and do things that will please the majority. I stopped, paused, and stepped back. This is my blog. Thus, I have the power and control what will I share and how will I share my life to the web. I don't want to write to be accepted anymore, I want to write so I can remember. I want to blog my life so I can keep those precious memories here. Not for promotion, not for discount codes.
Adventures Of is now the name of my blog. This is where I will document my recent adventure trips, thoughts, and happenings about my life. This is where I will go against the current.
