When you get your ❤ broken, you forget what it's like to smile - even for a little while, isn't it? . 👼🏽 My brother Miko passed away exactly two years ago, January 17, 2017. For awhile I hated the number 17 and anything that would remind me of that dreadful day. . 💡 But if you recall your science lesson: energy can neither be destroyed nor created, only transferred. . ♻️ It should also say, energy can also be transmuted or transformed into something else. . 🥀 When you experience trauma, yes, it is not your fault. But your healing is your responsibility. . 👊🏼 You have it in you to make the choice to transform your pain into power; your wounds into wisdom. From being the victim to becoming the victor! . 💪🏼 Trauma will break you for the sole purpose of transforming you into a stronger, more resilient being. . ✨ So today, whatever pain, worry, anxiety or fear you feel, try - try & transmute or shift that negative energy into something positive. . HOW? . 🙏🏼 By citing things you are grateful for because trauma is meant to teach you. . I am grateful I healed from Miko's passing. I am grateful my family and I are moving on. I am grateful I learned the lessons this trauma has brought into my life. I am grateful I am wiser. I am grateful I am stronger. I am grateful to realize Miko's energy is not destroyed, only transferred to a better place. I am grateful I allowed myself the time to heal. I am grateful I am smiling again. I am grateful to create a better life, learning from Miko's own. . 🙂 May you find reasons to smile again, my loves. Know that you are not alone & this too, shall pass ❤ . . 💛 My latest VLOG is dedicated in Miko's memory . . #mikoforeverinmy❤️ #BiancaVJourney . .

Me in between answering all your NAUGHTY 😑 plus hard hitting questions! . SWIPE —- 🐖 Confession: It’s always been a dream of mine to pet a pig, true story 😍 . Anywhere with animals, you’ll find me. . ☕️ Chanced upon a pet cafe at Neon Night Market, owned by Platinum Mall. . 🐾 Not seen - chickens, snakes, birds, puppies, cats, ferret, iguana, etc - all you can pet, for as long as you order at least one drink. . 🥗 The veggies to feed the little cuties is Baht30 or USD1 or P50 / plate. I think my sister & I bought 10 😂 . 👍🏼 Perfect place to hang while the rest of your crew is shopping. . 😅 The piglet here was such a, well, pig, lol - toppling over the plate of food, stealing the others animals’ food even in their mouth while chewing!! So naughty! 😂 . 🙋🏻 See them and more of all the other animals not pictured in my IG stories! . 🆙 Speaking of naughty, have you checked out my Q&A? It’s all in my HIGHLIGHTS! . #BiancaVTravels #BiancaVTravelsTHAILAND | BANGKOK
I love vintage shopping but how to bring home 😕 . SWIPE — When in Jakarta city, the capital of Indonesia, Jalan Surabaya is one very long street (semi junkyard if you will) of anything & everything antique, novelty and one of a kind items from the past 📽📻📺☎️ . In this day of the digital age, it’s so nostalgic to just look at the different stalls as a crash course through history. . How man has evolved, progressed and one might even argue, regressed 😐 . My fave pic are the old photographs 😍 . 🆕 There’s a new vlog! Remember to subscribe! 😊 LINK IN BIO! . #BiancaVTravels #BiancaVTravelsINDONESIA | JAKARTA

You’d think, as a model, I would have all this confidence to wear bikinis and the sort but that’s so far from the truth. . ❌ There’s really so much more than just a picture you see on social media. . 💔 2017 was the worst year of my life with my brother passing away. . The depression was so bad that for a time, I was suffering from bulimia. I had the hardest time holding down food, even water - water, the basic source of life. . I was carrying so much guilt for being alive. Like, how come my brother, the only son and not me instead? . But I knew I had to eat, so I would. Then right after because I felt all this shame that I didn’t deserve to live, I just couldn’t bear to hold down the food that I would throw up right away without even trying. . This went on for awhile —- I was torn between taking care of my body, a gift from God and hating myself so much, wanting to die. . 🔅 But as they say, time heals... . 🙏🏼 2018 was my year of healing. I was starting all over again, like a child learning how to walk, to feel things, to love myself and to see the world with new eyes. . 👙 A true bikini model would know this pose is awkward, apprehensive and just held back. . 🐚 To me, this is a sign, I’m slowly coming out of my shell after so long of living in so much self-doubt and sadness. . So silly, a damn bikini shot to represent growth? Oh please, get over yourself Bianca 😏 . ✨ Healing comes in many forms and the biggest lessons I’ve learned this year are OPENNESS and TRUSTING THE PROCESS. . 👁 Don’t wait for profound circumstances to find answers. They’re everywhere, if you choose to look beyond what your eyes can see. . 🎈 I’m nowhere near where I wish to be but I am getting there... . Wishing everyone so much love, inner peace and growth this 2019 ✨ . #BiancaVJourney . #MIKOForeverInMy❤️ . #BiancaVTravels #BiancaVTravelsINDONESIA | BALI
