Another (Mis)Adventure

It was the first time in almost half a year that I rode the MRT again. I was gearing myself up for the heat, body smashing/bumping and long(er) walks. When I got to the station, amazingly I was able to buy my ticket then went straight to the train ramp in less than 5 minutes. "Nice!", I murmured to myself. Little did I know that my day was just about to REALLY start.

The MRT ride was smooth, cold and not that stressful. The stress started when I decided not to take a cab along Buendia and just try the good-old-jeepney ride that I convinced myself I already miss. And boy was I wrong. A drizzle started and we all know what happens when it rains and you're in a jeepney.

You either
a. Get wet, because people refuse to fold down the plastic window "covers".

Or

B. People do immediately fold down the plastic window covers then you all sweat like crazy inside because there's limited breeze coming in.

Guess what happened???




Option B! Oh yes.. I arrived at the office feeling dirty and sweaty. I wanted the day to end right then and there. Haha! Oh well.. this shall be added to my book of (mis)adventures. Next time, I'll hail a cab instead whenever the car's on color coding. Amen.


CARPE DIEM!

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…

Suuuuuungka!

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. :)
