Back to blogging!


Hi guys! If you're reading this, thank you so much! This means you're still following A whole lot of serendipity. I'm not really sure how to start blogging again after a long hiatus but I guess I can start by writing a 'welcome back to blogging' sort of post. Isn't it ironic that one of the last thing I wrote on the blog was about being creative? I'm not going to make many excuses about my absence because I was simply being lazy and unmotivated. But here I am trying to get back into blogging. Lately, I find it really hard to write a complete post for my blog. Do you have a habit of starting projects, but not finishing them? That is exactly how I am treating my blog and it's really sad because it was one of those things that made me happy and felt productive.

Canadian Tulip Festival in Ottawa

tulips, tulip festival, ottawa, canada,
The Canadian Tulip Festival is a symbol of the international friendship of Canada with the Dutch Royal Family. Princess Juliana of the Netherlands sent 100, 000 tulips bulbs in 1945 to Ottawa as an appreciation of the safe haven that Canadians provided to the members of Holland's exiled royal family during World War. II.




Hi guys! It has been a while since the last time I posted something on the blog. My apologies! I was not planning to be back anytime soon but I want to share our recent trip to Ottawa to see our very own Tulips Festival in Canada! This celebration runs from May 12 to May 23 every year during the spring, so if you live near Ottawa or visiting Canada around this time, don't miss it! We went yesterday afternoon to see these beautiful tulips. It's not the first time we saw the festival but it has been many years since the last time. We were so thankful of the weather since it was first predicted that it would be a rainy day. It did pour with rain but only for a short amount of time, the rest of the day was nice.

What I learned from BIG MAGIC on being creative

A creative life is an amplified life. It’s a bigger life, a happier life, an expanded life, and a hell of a lot more interesting life. Living in this manner—continually and stubbornly bringing forth the jewels that are hidden within you—is a fine art, in and of itself.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear
Hi! First of all, I as always do, I want to apologize for the lack of posts on my blog. Lately, I've been focusing on school and reading books. One of the books I recently read is "Big Magic", written by Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of one of the most popular books in town, "Eat, Pray and Love". I really like to share some wisdom I learned from this book. It would be useful not just for writers as well as for bloggers and others who seek creativity. It's about creative living that speaks to my heart. BIG MAGIC resonated with my creativity and here are five of the many significant ideas and concepts that mirror my own.

Exploring Belem: Belem Tower

Hi guys, hope you all had a nice weekend! Today's another travel post on the blog. Whenever I look at our pictures from our trip, it appears to me that we really had the best time in Portugal. It's such a wonderful country! You should definitely add it into your travel bucket list! The places we visited were incredible.I'm dreaming of visiting other places in the country such as Porto and the beautiful beaches in Algarve, I heard these regions are breathtaking.

Exploring Belem: Portugal's Age of Discovery






We had such a beautiful weather on our day trip to Belem, the sky was so blue. After visiting the Monastery of St. Jeronimos, lunch at some random restaurant on the street and having the best custard tart in Lisbon at a quiet park, we went to see the famous Age of Exploration monuments which are just a walking distance from Pasteis de Belem. Belem's tourist attractions are so close to each other and because the weather during the time of our visit was really nice, walking outside was just delightful.
