Varekai Day

So after a number of times of talking about it and weighing if we really want to see the show or not... Arvic and I decided last minute (like just the week before the show started) to buy tickets.


Then we started counting the days... we were that excited. And then our Varekai day came...

It was rainy that day. We took pics as we approached the big tent.


Of course we wanted proof that we were there... so here's our pics with the tent. Haha!


There were several booths just as you get in the front area of the tent. They were selling popcorn, softdrinks and hotdogs. Made us feel we were really at a circus. Kulang na lang cotton candy!

Here's a very happy boy with his popcorn and drink. Super excited sya!


Here's the inside of the tent... well more of another reception area in one of the "wing" of the tent.


There was a photobooth as well set-up by Sunlife (one of the sponsors), all you have to do is "like" their FB page then your photo is free. Here's ours:


We were told that we can go inside the big tent already.. so this is the only shot I got from the inside before they announced that all phones and cameras should be turned off and kept.


The show was ama----zing. I loved it!!! Most of the stunts were unbelievable and the costumes were really a feast for the eyes. Well worth the ticket. The venue was really intimate for a 'circus' event. I bet you'll enjoy the show even if you get the cheapest tickets. ;) Go go go!


You can inquire and get tickets HERE. Tip: Tickets are cheaper during weekdays ;D

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. :)
