100 Green Years.. and a lot more ahead :)

My Alma Mater just turned 100 years today. What a milestone. :)


I still remember the day we paid for the reservation fee for DLSU. I wasn't really that decided to go to DLSU just yet but it was a good option to have. I wanted to go to UST, primarily because Mama, Papa and my sister were alumni of UST. We all grew up thinking we'll graduate from the same university our parents came from right? Plus I wanted to be a doctor when I was younger, so UST was the obvious choice. ADMU was also on my list, it was close to home plus I'm pretty sure I'll have friends there and most of them will be from the 'north', really convenient. In the end I chose DLSU.. took up Computer Studies/Science, majored in Computer Engineering and met the greatest group of people ever and created unforgettable memories. :)

So if you ask me now if I think I made the right choice? I won't deny that sometimes I still have certain what-ifs I'd like answered, but most definitely I love being a La Sallian and I thank DLSU for all the lessons learned, friendships discovered, and for seriously teaching me about dealing with life in general. Everything happens for a reason, and ending up spending my college years in DLSU was worth risking all those what-ifs. :)

I bleed green. :) ANIMO LA SALLE! Hail hail hail! :)

CARPE DIEM!

natawa ako sa linya mo na "i bleed green."

ako naman cza, i deliberately did not take exams sa la salle, as i felt it would be an extension of my high school (CSA). feeling ko dun din pupunta maraming augustinians. i wanted a breath of fresh air! He he! kaya sa UPLB ako bumagsak. and yes, i believe i was put there for a reason! :)

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. :)
