There’s shark meat in your food! Help Save Thresher Sharks

Whenever I see news about endangered species being captured, I get angry because I can’t understand why other people have the heart to see these species suffer. One of those endangered species are the Thresher Sharks. The Philippines is among the top 5 countries in the world with high shark diversity. And only in Monad Shoal near Malapascua Island, Daanbantayan in the Philippines where you can dive with the thresher sharks. The presence of thresher sharks has turned Malapascua Island into a major dive tourist attraction, helping the local residents to recover after the devastation that tropical typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan) brought to many parts of the country in 2013.

Paisley Pretty [Site Makeover]

Have you noticed any changes here? I hope so. This blog has been up for 5 years already and it’s only now that I’ve decided for a make-over. It’s because this blog is my first love, it has more posts than my other blogs and I’m nervous to lose all of these posts during the site overhaul. But yeah, I took the plunge after moving to a reliable host and after deciding the site’s design. Of course, the only person that I can think of who can prettify my site is Patricia of Fancy Girl Design Studio. She already prettified my 2 blogs, and it’s now time to work her magic on this blog.

The Peg

Far from the floral background this site used to have, I want it to be just plain white. I want it to be clean. Buuut….. I want the header to be fabulous. But I tried to veer away from florals, cartoonish designs. I thought of Cath Kidston, but it’s too floral. And then I stumbled upon Vera Bradley patterns… paisley! OMG!
