My Space

When things get awfully tiring..
Seek for silence.
Most of the time,
the loudest lessons are found ---
At the most quiet corners of our lives.

My special space would be somewhere quiet. A spa room maybe? Initially, I decided to post TonTon's logo or maybe some other spa's logo but then I realize, they're not entirely just "my" space. Then I remembered a place wherein I've been running to since I started working.

I have been part of 2 companies already and both are from RCBC. During up or down times, during stressful and happy days, I tend to end-up at the RCBC chapel. I just sit there and talk to Him. Sometimes I just sit there and listen to Him talk to me. During those days wherein I felt really betrayed by certain evil people (=p), that place kept me calm and protected. The good thing about that chapel too is that I wasn't aware that my future significant other spent time there too. Arvic frequents that chapel also. And I just knew about it when we started going out already. Sometimes I can't help but think that maybe papa God had a funny idea of putting us in each other's life. Maybe He thought "Eto na naman tong dalawang to, sila na lang kaya mag-usap" (Here they are again, maybe I should let them talk to each other instead.) Haha! It's possible right? Papa God really has a good sense of humor.

If I have written this when I was still in college.. I would have chosen the DLSU chapel too. I guess I really have things for chapels. It's my little getaway haven. :)

This is my entry to Caryn's Bday Post. :)

When I was in high school, I drop by this big cathedral before riding the jeepney home.

Baguio Trip - Forest House (Part 1)

To those who tried to guess (see previous entry), we were at Forest House, Baguio City!

The place wasn't really part of our itinerary (if we even had one!). We just passed by this place while making a U-Turn back to Nevada Square because we wanted to grab some drinks at a random bar there. The place caught are eyes because it looked so homey and there were a number of cars parked around it. When we tried to ask for a parking slot the guard told us that it was a full-house and that they were entertaining reserved guests only for that night. This made us more curious about the place. So when we got home, we all decided that we'll reserve a table for the next night "just in case" we'd like to try it out.

As we were entering the place, I definitely knew we made the right choice to try it out.

It was evident what the theme was for the place. All-out Christmas-y!:) We opted to have dinner at the Veranda area to savor the cold Baguio breeze. Dinner food selection followed.…

The Bontoc Museum

I've been going home to Bontoc, Mountain Province for years already and most of the time we go there during Holy Week. I've always wanted to visit the Bontoc Museum but I end up not visiting it again and again because they're closed during Holy Week. So imagine my amazement and (hidden) excitement when I FINALLY got the chance to visit it. Arvic was with me too so it made it extra fun of course. Another first for both of us. :) Yay!

Welcome to....

The Bontoc Musuem!

Entrance fee costs P50.00 only. The musuem has two parts.. the inside musuem and the outside one. Picture taking in the 'inside museum' is not allowed. There you'll be taken back in time with glimpses of the early days of the tribes from Sagada, Ifugao and Bontoc. :) Yes.. there are even pictures of the headhunting days. There are lots of photos of the tribes before and after the colonization. Really interesting. :)

So off we go to the outside musuem. Here, there are actual Nipa huts wherein you can see…
