It's Here!

2011 is here. And I'm so excited about it!!! I welcomed 2011 with my family in N. Ecija. We missed my sister, nephew and brother-in-law who are all in the US, but it's all good because this is all part of a bigger blessing or plan. :)

So... 2011, what's the plan? I have 3 things in mind that I will focus on this year.

First is.. TO SAVE!
Being out of the workforce for almost half the year made me want to save up more for future "breaks" I might be taking again. Haha! But kidding aside, it's a really a good idea to start saving up seriously. I know I should have started seriously saving 5 years ago (when I just started working), but it's never too late to start right? Plus, to justify my 'expenses', I can proudly say that the money was well-spent and truly enjoyed. =P

Second... GET FIT!
Seriously get fit! I've been finding excuse after excuse to not workout and this has to change. Maybe I need to find something I'll enjoy doing and hopefully this activity is cheap. I'm planning on taking tennis lessons with Kai during the weekends. For the weekdays, hopefully I'll start liking the idea of jogging. It's effective for Arvic and he seems to enjoy it. So I'm giving it a shot again. Plus... new running shoes should be enough motivation to jog. :) Oh.. and diet diet diet! Love your body dapat! :)

Third... STAY POSITIVE!
A healthy body is not just enough.. a healthy attitude should be added too. I plan to get rid of all the negative vibes. No to bitterness.. no to fear of the unknown.. no to doubt. This year should all be about being happy and feeling the love. :)

So gear up for me 2011. Let's get started! :)

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. :)
