Sunday-Oh Sunday!

It’s a Sunday.  Family day. A day to renew my spirit.  A time for reflection.  A time to watch movie. A time to clean my room. The most momentous is to go to church. But it’s an irony.  Sunday is something I don’t like the most of day. I feel like I’m a walking dead. I just want to sleep all day long. I’m tired to get up, to eat, to clean my room, to wash the dishes, and to go to church.  It’s just a tradition of our society to go to church every Sunday. I pray but not always, I trust and believed in God, but not always, I’m not atheist, I’m not a true Christian. I have my own believe. I believed in the holy bible. I believe in holy trinity. But I don’t believe in relics and statues around the church. 

So far as I know I’m a catholic but my heart is not 100% devoted in catholic principles, law and admiration. I just feel God inside me, I don’t see him physically but I know every day in my life I feel him. I feel his presence. I feel his glorious power in such unpredictable ways. We have our own belief, culture and tradition but mine is unique.  Maybe it’s my own understanding in such way bible is a meaningful piece of revelation. My advice is to read the bible cover by cover, page by page, words by words, verse by verse and chapter by chapter. And you will close to reality. Amen!

Hello Bohol- Chocolate Hills

Top of the Hill

After 21 years of my existence, finally my footsteps are here in Bohol. I and my friends decided to go in this wonderful place. My friend Julie Aligor lived here together with his boyfriend, they invited me to their place for a free accommodation plus a trip to Chocolate Hills, I grabbed it like so badly because Im on state of soul searching, not because  I’m unemployed  nor broken hearted but because I’m seeking for the right path for my career. Yes, I’m employed but after a few months a feel tired, unmotivated, unworthy and uncoordinated. I heard negative feedbacks but I don’t care         as long as a do my job accordingly. Some people drag me down but I stand alone and proved them I was not stubborn.

Here I’m staring the beautiful creation of dear Lord! I scream!!!! Words never heard before. I’m not stupid! I’m worthy! I’m just a human being sometimes made mistakes. Feels like my soul running in my veins, all my angst was released. After that it is relief feeling! I was renewed, a feel like a brand new product, a new glowing flower.

This chance is exceptional, I don’t have to waste my time on negative thoughts,  I believed I was renewed , so it’s time to  break down all the positive vibes.  Seeing the beautiful chocolates is natural incomparable, upon walking you will amaze with the very green and glowing hills that are perfectly arranged. The distance of each hill seems so near to each other.  Like a friend to each to other that creates harmonious relationship. This one thing that I can be proud of; though I not own it at least our country has something to be proud of.

Make a Wish!

Aside from the famous hills, you will also see a big bell on the top of the highest hill that we are standing. This bell is also exciting because every visitors will throw a piece of coin on the wishing well then you will ring the bell, this is traditional way if you want to wish a simple thing in this place. Why not to have a wish? There’s nothing wrong in trying.

Lastly, this escapade was not an ordinary vacation. I feel new again. With help of the beautiful scenes I able to find myself.

Daranak Falls-Rock!

The Majestic Waterfalls

This is a perfect gateway against smoky, polluted, beat of loud music of metro manila. Calling all nature lovers come on and go pack your things right now!  This is limitless opportunity to witness its gracious creation. This is my 2nd time to be in Daranak Falls. My first one when I was 4th year college (2012). And that time I decided to go back here because I’m a big fun of this wonderful picturesque. All my stress was gone when I reach the falls. The water fall downs like a massage on your body. Like a magic that creates a sweetest feeling.
For all adventurers all over the world, you can reach the Daranak Falls even when commuting public vehicles. From Antipolo Church( Philippines) you will start your journey here. You can first drop by at the miraculous Our Lady of good Voyage for safe trip. Then, ride a tricycle going to Shopwise (usually Php.25.00 fee). Then, go down and ride a Jeepney, the route is Tanay Palangke (usually Php. 30.00) after you reach the final station then ride a tricycle going to Daranak falls. (usually Php. 100.00) this is  a full pack ride. Daranak Falls opens Monday-Sunday from 8am-4pm only.

Balancing Stones

Aside from the very relaxing waterfalls,   you will also witness a fabulous Balancing Stones, every guess/visitors created their version of balancing stone. This is how you make your own trade mark that other photographer wanted to capture.  Well, don’t worry on where to find these precious stone because it’s all around the corner. It’s free and very recreational. When I was there, I witnesses that mostly people go there with their families and friends; some are motorist, and also few foreigners. 

So friends, lets rock our summer or even special holidays on this exciting nature adventure.!

The Wedding of an Awesome Girl!

Lovely Bride and Emcee

Isn’t she beautiful? Wearing a sacred dress of every woman wanted to wear.  Beautiful dress tells a story of love and compassion. Dress that start a new chapter of her life. She really wanted to make this night so perfect and memorable; no one can ruin a fated ceremony of one in lifetime experience, happily I was part of the wedding and reception ceremony.  She’s my former colleague in our previous company. She’s very kind and humble to everyone regardless of the hierarchical position and she always smile that makes her beautiful.   We’ve been friends/ acquaintance for almost 8 months, before I resigned at the company I assured to her that I will be at her wedding day.

 Thanks to her my talent was shown as the Emcee (Master of Ceremony) at her Reception ritual. This is my very first time to be a  host of a formal gathering, it’s nerve rocking experience but I do believe I will make it because she trust in me. Happily I made up to the end of the ritual. I saw the happiness and tears at her. But I would say best wishes my friend, a very strong and lovable woman!  Your husband was so lucky because your exceptional and one in a million. I wish you more children and eternal happiness and contentment.

Beauty with the Purpose

Philippines joined the Miss world since 1966. This year we nailed it, Ms. Megan Young crowned as the new princess of Miss World 2013 held at Indonesia. She’s also the first ever Filipino crowned the international title. This is amazing because this is the first time in the history that Indonesia open their country for this one of kind opportunity. And Filipino also jived in this history. During pre-pageant, candidates are challenge in different aspects like sport, fashion modeling, promotions on social media, talent portion and photo shoot. After all this challenges, Ms. Megan ranked as top 1 among other beautiful contestant. She also hailed as best Top Model during the Fashion Show.
Beauty with the purpose is hard to define. If we look into different perspective, I can see that beauty is kindness, promotions and core values. Kindness to reach out what the organization believed with, to exercise humanity as its fullest, to provide neat water to Haiti community, to educate people on proper hygiene, to help the other country who needs medical and dental attention. Promotion is one effective marketing strategy to hear what the organizations wanted to say to the world. And using Social Medias is the effective way. I like the concept of this year pageant, they posted their clamor on facebook  to help endangered species of Indonesia. Through this people in the world they can see what really happen in our ecosystem, unbalance habitat, destructed forest and deforestation. Lastly, core values of the organization, this is the most momentous attitude that a Miss World (MW) should embody. If you push on what you believe for, this core values moves you on what you can help and achieve for the organization. And that core values nailed by Ms. Megan at the question and answer portion on why she is suits to become a Miss World 2013.

Moreover, as an ordinary individual, I was hypnotized on this pageant not only because they are beautiful but the concept and principles of this competition. That’s why this contest rock the world because of their kindness that reveals within, the willingness to help who’s on need, morale that uplifts humanity and beauty that adage amazing girl power!.
