Zipmatch : Apartment Space-Saving Tips for Students

Before the beginning of the school year, most University students move into their own apartment in the metro. Getting your own apartment is one of the big steps to independence. You should never be discouraged from purchasing a small apartment. Follow these simple steps to increase your space and enable you to focus on enjoying your new, albeit temporary, home!

The Wardrobe

In your new apartment, it is almost certain that you will not have as much space for clothes as you are used to. So how can we save some space? 

It is extremely important to keep your selection of clothes seasonal. You won't need that thick jacket in the summer or that slinky little dress during the rainy season. It sounds so simple, but in the rush of moving away from home, many students are prone to over-packing. Rotate your clothing whenever you go home.

My Top 10 Travels of 2015

Someday, when the dust settles, I hope to find myself staring not at the pleadings on my desk nor the contracts that have to be reviewed and the tax assessments that needs to be settled... but to be in an unfamiliar place where I am lost in translation, trying to find my way out into the next destination. 

I am a corporate slave - not a choice but a necessity. A necessity to survive in this jungle city. I travel to escape. Traveling for me is a poignant reminder that I could simplify my life a little bit and just enjoy living. While traveling in 2015 was a constant debacle because of work, still, I got the chance to enjoy these places which I have included in my annual favorite list:

I wouldn't mind waking-up in Compostela Valley, my top choice for 2015. Considered as Davao Region's summer capital, this laid back province is an adventure in nature just aching to be discovered. Waterfalls, hot and cold springs, verdant hills and mountains - just about anything you want for that eco-adventure.

Ten Years of Blogging

Oh Boy! What a journey it has been. It seems only yesterday that I shared posts about my life as a law student reviewing for the BAR. And of how this blog transitioned from a personal-law blog to a travel-photo blog. It has been ten years.
