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. :)

I'm out.

Mother's Day 2017

This time last year, I was celebrating this special day for mothers with our little munchkin still inside my tummy.  I felt I had the right to co-celebrate with all amazing moms (and dad-moms, lolo/lola-moms, sibling-moms etc) of the world because technically I'm a mom already. Little did I know that being a mom is far from what I imagined it to be. Spoiler: IT'S WAY BETTER! :)
After giving birth, I was exhausted. Happy, relieved, and just plain exhausted. It was a grueling almost 24 hours of "labor". I was brought to the hospital around 6AM on the 27th, hoping that I will give birth a couple of hours later so I was pretty sure our little boy's birthday will be July 27. It took me a whole day of waiting, monitoring, cm-checking and "doc wala pa ba talaga" questioning before finally seeing our little one the morning after at 5:55AM.
This year, I am definitely, solidly, officially, proudly a mom on mother's day. Everyday I thank God for this blessing…


Who knows how to play Sungka?

What's Sungka you may be thinking? Well, let's allow good old Wiki to define it for us...

Congkak (pronounced [tʃoŋkaʔ]) is a mancala game played in the island of Borneo, Singapore, and Peninsular Malaysia. Minor variants are known as Tchonka, Naranj, Dakon or Sungka and are played in Indonesia (mostly Java), Sri Lanka, the Maldives, southern Thailand, the Philippines and the Marianas. In Indonesia, it is called "Congklak" meaning cowrie shells, which are often used as pieces. On the island of Java, it is called "Dakon" and little red seeds are used as pieces. In the Philippines it is called "Sungka" and shells are used as pieces. Congkak is believed to originate from the word ‘congak’ which in old Malay Language means count.
When we were in Boracay last April, this game was played during our free time. I love playing it! Especially if my opponent's Arvic because I pretty much win all the time. Haha! Kidding aside, I…

Hoyohoy Villas

I didn't know what to expect on our summer trip to Bantayan. I was in Cebu with my family just a couple of weeks before our Bantayan trip so I knew what to do when we arrived at Cebu, and that is to look for our shuttle that'll bring us to the pier so that we can go on a ferry boat to Bantayan Island. What I wasn't ready for was the long shuttle ride. It took us, 1.5-2 hours of roadtrip until we got to the pier and another 1.5-2 hours on boat.

Tired from traveling, we were just really ready to get to the hotel/resort to freshen up. . We were welcomed by colorful pedicabs when we arrived. Manong told us they were our ride to Hoyohoy Villas.

I'm happy the place didn't disappoint us

We were given complimentary refreshments right away...

Our villas...

Exploring the resort..

I really liked the place... the fun was just about to start. :)
