Random Thoughts

"People are like stained glass windows... They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light within"


Someone told me I look extra pretty today. :) Funny thing is.. I think I look exactly the same yesterday (with different set of clothes of course :P). So I tried to think real hard of what the difference could have been. I lacked more sleep today compared to yesterday. And I have more girly clothes yesterday too. Hmmmmm... Then I realized that yesterday, I was in a semi-lousy mood. Today, I woke up with a smile. So I guess it is indeed true that a little positivity goes a long way. Spread the love. Spread the smiles. :)


CARPE DIEM!

The radiance's coming from within. =)

I agree. A smile can make a lot of difference on one's personality and of how one looks or perceives others.

Keep smilin :)

Goes to show that it really isn't the clothes. Minsan yung overall aura talaga yung nagdadala.

so true! i was thinking about this just the other day, when i was fixing myself. sabi ko, "my hair looks like i normally fix it, nothing's different in my face, but how come i feel "uglier" when i do during normal days?" naisip ko na it's inside na talaga. there are really those days when you fell pangit, and there are those days you feel pretty. what's inside just emanates outside. so dapat laging poitive ang iniisip! :)

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. :)

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…

Ba-Bye Ate

Today was quite a sad day for our family. For a very close-knit family, goodbyes are really extra difficult to say . Especially if the one leaving will be miles and seas away.


My Ate (with her husband) left this morning for the US. They'll be starting their new life there. She already has work so I don't need to worry about that anyway, and I'm sure that she'll definitely do well. My parents were really sad... maybe it's the thought of being "away" from her. Tipong you have to hop on a plane pa just to be able to get to her. The whole family has US visa naman, we can go there anytime (as long as we have the money I guess :p)

Yes, I cried a lot as well... and I guess it's because of all the bilins I got from her. The one that stuck the most "Ikaw na bahala dito ha.. Alagaan mo sila Mama and Papa. Si Ivan ha... Wag mo silang pabayaan." My nephew on the other hand was a different story... he was eager to go home already when we got to NAIA. Haha!…
