Thank you 2010!

2010... I am about to bid goodbye to you in a few minutes. And I would like to tell you something before you actually bid goodbye to all of us.

Thank you 2010. You have been an amazing year. A year of travels with family, friends and with Arvic. I appreciate that a lot. I love sharing travel memories with people I love. They will forever remain priceless to me. The US was great by the way, I shall go back there and see more of it. I promise! :)

Thank you 2010. You taught me to be patient. I was not working for almost the whole half end-part of the year. Sure, I became a little bit uneasy already and impatient but the 'time-off' gave me my much-needed break to reflect back on what I really want in life and where I want to go. I wanted to leave the Philippines for greener pastures elsewhere but then realized that maybe I'm still not meant to be away from family and friends. I guess, there's still a lot to be done here. And a whole lot more to enjoy. ;)

Thank you 2010. I learned more about being in a relationship. Sure this year was a little bit bumpy compared to previous years but the lessons I learn in each bumpy ride you let me in are precious. I learned more about Arvic and most especially about me. I know we still have a long way to go but I sure am glad I have him in my life. This partnership will go places.. I just know it! ;)

Thank you 2010. Friendships grew even stronger during this year. I appreciate my true friends more and more each year. A lot of milestones were met this year like the 10-year mark with my college friends.. and even more years with my highschool friends. You also made me realize that indeed true friendships can stem from being workmates. I am really lucky to have these people in my life.


Thank you 2010, you leave me with a more hopeful heart. I know that 2011 will be great but I shall always remember you as the year that I learned a lot from.

CHEERS!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!

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. :)
