about in midnights

Is a twenty-something from Manila who loves books and fashion. She’s also a compulsive reader, aspiring photographer, Ateneo de Manila graduate and a wannabe linguist. A lover of culture, travel, food, art and bargains. Oh and she enjoys writing.

If she doesn’t try, she won’t know. So she’s here to try.

why in midnights?

One of her favorite songs is Seasons of Love B from the musical RENT. The songs asks how a person measures a year in a life, gives of plenty of suggestions like the lyric above and ultimately says that people should measure in love. There’s a lyric there that goes, in daylights, in sunsets, in midnights and cups of coffee. She chose in midnights as her way of measuring because it feels like a good mark as she is a night person and is the most awake at that hour. She hasn’t slept before midnight in more than seven years.

  1. Interesting blog you got here. I like the One day in Tagaytay post I will have to visit there one day. Generally where do you travel, within the Philippines or all over? I have a travel BLOG I started to log all the travels I have done in the past and future travels. If the link doesn’t work my blog is http://www.roycesworld.com, check it out sometime and let me know what you think. I never been to the Philippines but plan to go one day. Don’t know much about it but I heard Cebu is really nice. I’ll be subscribing to read your future travel stories and maybe they will inspire me to visit as well hehe.


    1. Thank you! 🙂 Right now, I travel wherever I can afford and interests me enough. I’ve been to North America, the Middle East, Macau and Hong Kong and some parts of the Philippines. I’d love to go to Europe someday, when I’m loaded. I’ll check your blog out and subscribe too. I haven’t been to Cebu, but I’ve got friends who are from Cebu. Their Sinulog Festival is quite famous and would be a great cultural experience if you ever visit–it happens in January.


      1. I’m planning too, but I think those will be picture-heavy and a tour of the sights instead of a detailed account of how much I spent and stuff (I was staying with relatives so I didn’t have to worry about food and lodging). I’ve been to Oman and Dubai when I was young and to New York, Vegas, Massachusetts, and Connecticut. I saw your reviews on Amsterdam! 🙂
