Hug-A-Pooh Day


“We need four hugs a day for survival. We need eight hugs a day for maintenance. We need twelve hugs a day for growth.” – Virginia Satir

January 21 may be considered as National Hug Day but why wait for this time of the year when you can make everyday as Hug -A-Pooh day? 🙂

Alpha and Omega

All beginnings have an ending. An Alpha has an Omega. An alphabet starts with A and ends with Z. A job starts with an offer and ends with a resignation letter. A relationship ends with a break up. And of course, a life ends with death.

Oftentimes, we look at endings as a bad thing – a thing we dread the most as this means we’ve stopped, we’ve died, we’ve given up, we’ve been defeated, we’ve quit.

But no matter what happens, we have to say goodbye to something anyhow. Because that’s the reality – endings are inevitable. And for Pooh instead of mourning the end, why not be thankful?

As Pooh have said: “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.

January 18: Winnie The Pooh Day!

Celebrating Winnie the Pooh Day :)
Celebrating Winnie the Pooh Day 🙂

Everyday is a day worth celebrating for.  But today is a much more important day as today is Winnie the Pooh Day! 🙂

What’s so special about today? Well, it’s A.A Milne’s birthday!

How should you celebrate #WinnieThePoohDay? If you live near Hartfield, East Sussex, you can visit Pooh Corner, home to the world’s largest selection of “Pooh-phernalia”. You can also call your friends to spend the afternoon playing Poohsticks. 🙂 But before all these activities, “let’s begin by taking a smallish nap or two.” 🙂

Pooh’s #BastilleInManila Experience

Bastille In ManilaJanuary 5, 2015 might be the first day of work but it also marked Bastille’s first (hopefully, not the last) concert here in Manila. The event was held on the World Trade Center so it was a standing concert, which is a not Pooh’s preferred kind of event due to Pooh’s lack of height. XD But besides this minor hiccup, Pooh was lucky enough to be able to attend this event.

Pooh learned about this band when Arra of Style Reader had referred the song Pompeii. And just like that Pooh was hooked! Bastille’s first album, Bad Blood, even became Pooh’s “Commute to the Office” playlist. 🙂

The night started with Bad Blood followed by songs from their first album -These Streets, Icarus, Laura Palmer, Get Home and many more. While performing Flaws, Dan even came down stage. They also performed songs from VS. (Other People’s Heartache pt. III) and their famous cover of “No Scrubs”.  The night ended with Pompeii, wherein Dan encouraged everyone to put down their phones and just jump up and down to the song.

Being one of Pooh’s favorite band, watching Bastille perform live is definitely a good way to start the year right. And for March, the concert to prepare for is … X Tour: Ed Sheeran Live in Manila!
