Bohol Beach Club experience...

Paradise...this is the word that best describes Panglao Island, Bohol. It was indeed a good decision to have chosen Bohol as our post-wedding getaway. The place is awesome! I fell inlove with it.

The people are very nice and humbled. And they treat tourists like their own family member. Who would have thought that there are still genuinely nice people back home in the Philippines? I truly admire Boholanos. Visiting Bohol is definitely a great experience.

Real fast!

Archie arrived, finally. We’ve got five more days before the Big day. The butterflies in our stomachs never went away. I hope everything will be alright…

December 16, 2009


I am supposed to go home in the province to visit my mom and dad’s tombs but my sisters told me not to. Traditions and beliefs say that no bride-to-be is to travel when the wedding date has been scheduled. Urgh, had I known earlier, I would have not booked my flight this early. Poor Archie, had to be left behind.

So I immediately changed my schedules and didn’t waste a day not to look after our wedding details.

I'm home!

The moment I saw smoke in the air, I knew I was home to Philippines. Odd but true hehe. I arrived in Clark right on time despite the late departure in Changi. Praise God the flight was safe. The first to welcome when in Dau is of course, Jollibee. So I went in to order their new Jollibee barbeque chicken. It was satisfyingly yummy! Off I went to victory terminal bound for Baguio. Yeah, I didn't ask my family to pick me up cause I just traveled lightly. No much of a fuss! In a quick 5 hours of nap in the bus, I could feel the freezing cold breeze and the smell of pine trees. Finally, home it is...

Love happens...

I just finished watching Love Happens and I gotta say, grieving is really the hardest part to do in one's life. I've lost many important people in my life including my parents. And the healing and moving on part, doesn't happen overnight. It may take months or even years for someone to finally move on, again. Just like what I did.

My favorite line from the movie was the part where Burke said "when one thing ends, something else begins." In my life or maybe also in your life, this line is true. I'm ending my single life and starting anew in marriage. I don't know what kind of life it will be but it is a major step to move forward.

Wednesday madness

I feel so lazy today and did nothing but gaze nowhere. Sigh, idle moments like this makes me think of things that aren't to be thought. It keeps my sleepy mind awake and rush all at once. Sometimes it's tiring to think. Sigh...

Still with nature

I've been weighing my skill (if you can call it a skill) in photography and found out that I think I'm better with nature as subjects. This is because I've been having a lot of frustration taking photos of humans as subjects. For whatever reason, I sure know that I seriously need more and more practice. Maybe I'm lacking something, I just gotta figure. Anyways, tell me what you think about these shots.

Queen's abode

Archie and I went to celebrate the house blessing of my high school friend, Queenie in Northoaks Woodlands yesterday. The view was terrific. There's a big swimming pool and mini-slides for kids at one corner. The gym is right across. Ah, it was just breathtaking.

It's nice to live in a condo where one can enjoy all the amenities. But then I wonder if Queen will have time? She's too busy and caught up with work a lot of times. Oh well, everything she has right now is worth it all. She's one blessed girl. I'm happy for her.

Saturday fun

Today was a very tiring yet fulfilling day for me and Archie. We met after his work to hang out and stroll in town. And while in town, we dropped by Pedro shop to buy Archie's shoes, finally.

Anyways, we did the stroll because we need to add more pictures on the project we're trying to finish for our wedding hehe. So here comes the not-so-good photos. Thanks to our reliable Onee and tripod.

We were patiently waiting for the sun to set so we can see the beauty of Orchard at night

smile for the camera!

Gossip is crispier than fried chicken

Who says fried chicken is the crispiest? I say gossip is much crispier than a fried chicken. People loves and hungers for it.

I know for a fact that all of us doesn't wanna be left out with the latest news on tv, print, and even in our own personal lives. Rumor or gossip is just inevitable, isn't it? Even if it means ruining someone's life.

I just did something noble for myself today. Oh well, after someone stabbed me to death at my back, I chose to do something to calm myself and move on peacefully. So instead of drowning myself with the hear says and hoo-has around me, I removed all the people in my FB network that connects me to that someone. And when I say remove all, it means everyone, even if the other people are not involved. Ironic but, it's quite a relief.

Although, I am partly sad for doing it because I have a few good friends in that circle. But then I had to make a sacrifice so I can move on faster. Doing it, actually made me feel better. And I'm glad. I can just shrug the gossip off my shoulders.

God is definitely good all the time...

No questions: Life is never fair!

We can never really question how our lives will turn out. There are so many things in our lives that are beyond our power but happens instantly right on our noses. Others can either make or break us.

Who says life is fair? It never was, is or will be.
