Bohol's Beloved - Amorita Resort

Image
Amorita, Bohol's beloved and the apple of my eye. Yes and guess what? It was love at first sight! Amazing paradise with superb food plus the courteous and very polite staff equals to good service and great stay.


Anyway, this is where we stayed for 3 days and 2 nights as part of our family vacation spree in Bohol. I love the place and will definitely come back someday soon. Yeah, this little haven is tempting me everytime I see its beauty and charm. Aahh.. that's Amore!

Tiyahin

Unang nakapag-abroad sa aming pamilya ay ang aking tiyahin. Siya ay nasa kolehiyo na nuon at binisita ng kanyang kaibigan sa panulat(penpal) na norwegian seaman. Nagkaibigan sila at naging seryoso itong seaman hanggang sa pangalawang balik nya, minabuti nyang hingin ang kamay ng aking tiyahin sa kanyang mga magulang at saka sila nagpakasal. Sumama sya at nanirahan sila sa bansang Norway. Nagkaroon sila ng dalawang supling. Bagama't hindi pinalad na tumagal ang kanilang relasyon, masaya naman sila ngayon sa sari-sarili nilang desisyon sa buhay. 

Replica

Nanaginip ako kagabi pero di ko matandaan lahat ng pangyayari. Nasa mountain top daw ako. Ang saya ko nasa tuktok ako ng bundok at tanaw ko ang malawak na lupain sa baba then tanaw ko din ang dagat na malabughaw ang kulay. Paglingon ko di pala ako nag-iisa kasi kasama ko ang aking matalik na kaibigan. Nakatingin sya sa akin, mukhang galit at pinapahiwatig nya na magmadali at sumama ako sa kanya pababa ng bundok. Napatingala ako sa langit pero ang nakita ko ay ang replica ng dagat sa taas, wala itong alon pero nagtaka ako bakit baligtad ang dagat? Nasaan ang langit? Nakadama ako ng biglang takot, sumigaw sya mula sa baba at sumunod ako. 


Dun na ako nagising mula sa aking panaginip..

Nora

We attended the 1st birthday celebration of Nora yesterday. Bale apo ko na sya kasi anak siya ng pamangkin ko sa second cousin ko, gets? Complicated diba? Di bale dito naman kasi walang ganung relasyon, di uso yan dito unlike sa Pinas kahit malalayong kamag-anak kilala mo at kilala ka then may tawagan pa. 

Anyway, hayan ang aking pruweba, ang litratong aking nadikwat habang nagkakantahan ng "bursdag sang" o birthday song sa english. happy na naman ang aking mga alaga kasi napakain ko na naman sila ng cakes. Cake talaga with S sa dami pero di ko naman sila tinikman lahat juice ko dai! 2 lang naman among the 9 different kinds of cakes dyan at tig-iisang slice lang din. Mahirap na baka tumaas ang sugar level, aruyz!

March 17

March 17 - That's my mama's date of birth. 
Hmm I wonder what to do, lemme think.. 
I wanted to treat her, give a sweet surprise 
or maybe just send her a gift, so yeah lemme think twice. 


I miss mom so much already. 
I'm thinking of her and papa everyday.
I worry about their health,
reminding always to take their medicines and
avoid getting stressed.


Mom is wonderful, though not the perfect mom 
yet for me, in the whole world, she's the best mom.
She's cool and she's funny sometimes.
Yeah, she's pretty and kind.


Oh how I wish to be like her..
How I wish to be with her..
Wish I could hug and kiss her..
She's my mom anyway..
I love her so dearly..


Still I wonder what to do on March 17?

Nakakainis

Naiinis ako sa mga taong tumatawag sa phone tas pagsinagot mo ng busy ka biglang magagalit.
Naiinis ako sa mga taong kapag nagsasalita sila dapat tutok ka at bawal gumawa ng ibang bagay maliban sa pakikinig sa kanya.
Naiinis ako sa mga taong saway ng saway sa mga maiingay pero sya kung makasigaw ng halos walang humpay umaabot pa sa kapitbahay, pasaway!
Naiinis ako sa mga taong ayaw makinig sa eksplinasyon ng iba, dapat sya lagi ang hihiranging tama, laging panalo, ano kami robot? di kami bobo!
Naiinis ako sa mga taong masigasig na nagpaplano w/o considering na ang sinasama nya sa plano ay di sang-ayon sa iniisip nya loko! Nagtatanong nga ng opinyon mo pero takot ka namang humindi kaya oo nalang ng oo para walang gulo.
Naiinis ako sa mga taong gustong alamin ang bawat himay ng ibang pagkatao, ano ang ginagawa, ginawa at gagawin pa lamang, big brother kaw ba yan? Haynaku!
Naiinis naman ako sa mga taong kung makareport ay daig mo pa ang document news reporter. Ilalathala halos lahat maski sigu…

Sunny Winter Afternoon

Ganda ng panahon sa labas ah, syempre winter pa din pero umaaraw na.. hmm lapit ka na ba spring? Can't wait to make spring rolls tuloy. Haha loka, di yun talaga ang pakay ko. Gusto ko spring season na para dina masyadong malamig tsaka nakakaumay pagpuro white ang nakikita mo sa paligid. Di lang yan nakakadepress pa kasi wala kang makikitang taong lumilipad este naglalakad, hayop na nagsasalita este nakikipaglaro sa mga amo nila o halamang buhay na patay este kumakaway sa labas, hay at isa pang hay. 

Travelogue: Bohol Island Province

Image
Bohol is an island province located in the Central Visayas Region and is considered as the tenth largest island of the Philippines. 

Like Boracay island, Bohol island province is also popular tourist spot in the Philippines considering its long white powdery-sand beach and blue-green color of the sea. But here is less crowdy and a lot of historic and interesting places to visit, perfect for a family getaway. 


Our first grandest family tour in Bohol, a granted wish by my sis yam to my mom. Thank you sis, this is one of the treasured luxurious travel ever! 

Rosas

Image
Bakas sa aking mukha ang tuwa na magpahanggang sa pagpasok ko kaninang hapon sa trabaho ay dala-dala ko ang ngiti sa aking mga labi. Sinorpresa kasi ako ng aking butihing asawa ng labinlimang kumpol na rosas habang ako'y nasa higaan pa. Oo bagama't ang aking kaligayahan ay napakababaw lamang ngunit kung ikaw naman ay makatanggap ng mga mumunti at simpleng sorpresa mula sa iyong minamahal, aba'y siguradong mapapaluha ka sa galak, hindi ba? 

Ang sarap kapag ika'y minamahal at nagmamahal.. Hay pag-ibig nga naman!
Oo na ako na ang bagong makata :D

Whitney Houston, I Will Always Love You

Image
I was saddened to hear the loss of my idol, Whitney Houston. She was found dead by her bodyguard at the Beverly Hilton hotel last saturday afternoon. According to the authorities she was drowned in this hotel's bathtub. Confirmed.
Okay I have heard and seen the news and that's it, I think that would be enough. As to pay respect I will not include anything negative about her here. I want to remember her as a good person she was, with a stunning image and perfect voice. Rest in peace idol.

How Do I Choose My Accommodation?

Image
When it comes to choosing an accommodation, I always rely on the customers' reviews and ratings first then its location and affordability next.


*Reviews and ratings - It can be stated here if the customers have had bad or good experiences during their stay at the hotel. If the food and the service was superb or not. Was it safe there? Can be noisy because of..? Well the topmost priority I look for is its cleanliness and hopefully bug-free. 
Recently I got diagnosed of bug and dust allergies. Trust me, it ain't no fun. 


*Location and affordability - whether the hotel is a 2-star or a 5-star kind, it does not matter as long as it has ease and availability of transportation and safe of course. Must consider always that it is near where the most important amenities are. If I could avail discounts, free breakfast promos, or 1-day free accommodation such like that stuff, thumbs up!

4 Extreme Boracay Adventures

Image
Me and 3 of my friends went to Boracay last year via Cebupacific's 1 peso promo. 1st day was all about camwhoring and strolling around Boracay Island. On our second day early morning, I asked one by one if they knew any extreme activities in Boracay that they wanted to indulge in. Parasailing, Zorb rolling, ATV/Buggy car riding and Helmet sea-diving came up as top answers. 
1. Parasail - towed behind a boat while attached to a specially designed canopy wing that's like in a parachute. tough!


2. Zorb -  imagine yourself inside a inflatable, large transparent ball and rolling downhill, weeeee! 


3. Atv/Buggy Car - rent and ride an all-terrain-vehicle, vrroooommmm! 


4. Helmet Dive - diving 10ft. below the sea-level wearing the metal helmet with a pipe and stuff for air and breathing underwater. it's heavy so you easily sink down underwater and enjoy watching a few crowds of colorful fishes. He's covered with fish ha ha sorry my friend Luey :( di ka kasi nagbra eh yan tuloy the…

Exhausted

Image
Kahapon lang ang saya-saya ko andami kasing nangyari. Pero umaga palang masama na pakiramdam ko, sinabi ko yun sa kolega ko pero di namin ininda pareho kelangan kasi ipagpatuloy ang trabaho. Nakikipagkulitan pa ako sa ibang kolega at mga pasyente dun, dumagdag pa ng bumisita mga kaibigan ko na naghahanap ng ekstrang trabaho dun kaya laking gulat at tuwa ko. 
May nagcelebrate din ng late birthday nya kaya sa pangalawang pagkakataon nitong linggo nakikain na naman ako ng cake, hay pagkasarap. Excited akong nagbibilang ng oras dahil pagkatapos ng trabaho sasamahan ako ng kolega ko tumingin ng bakanteng apartment kaso tinanong ako ng boss ko kung pwedeng isang oras na extension pa sa work. Pumayag ako pero pagod na pala isip at katawan ko nagpapaka-superwoman lang ako. Ibig sabihin pinipilit kong maging maliksi at malakas pero sumasablay naman ako. Lagpas na ako sa oras, tawag pa din ako ng mga pasyente. Ng makapuslit nagpalit na ako sabay alis.  Ang lamig-lamig naglakad ako, wala kasi akon…

Travelogue: Boracay Island

Image
Boracay is one of the remarkably beautiful beaches in the Philippines considering its famous white powdery sand and incredibly turquoise sea. It is a tropical island situated in the northwest of Panay in the Western Visayas Region of the Philippines.

As a novice travel adventurer, Boracay was on top of my list. After 29 years of my existence, I dwelt, I invaded and I luxuriated in. The place was indeed a paradise! 

I was pleased by the beauty and tranquility on the beach. Safetiness was never a doubt, local people were nice, courteous and polite. Food was never a problem hence there were a lot of restaurants and wide variety of foods to choose from.

For me Boracay was a dream, a dream I was able to fulfill. Definitely I will be going back, someday.. soon.
