My Favorite Summer Experience

My favorite summer experience happened 2 years ago. Bohol is not new to me nor to my family because my Mom is pure Boholana and we always go home every year because of her hometown’s Fiesta and also to visit our Grandmother (who just passed away last April at the age of 96, may her soul rest in peace).

But two years ago, I went to Bohol with my family and I had a great time! That was my favorite summer experience because even though I have visited Bohol Tourist’s spots a million times, it was different that time because I am with my family and it was my first time to have a vacation with my son. We went to every tourist spot we know in Bohol in just one day and we sure had FUN.

Our first stop was Baclayon Church in Baclayon Bohol. One of the oldest Church in the Province of Bohol. This photo was taken at the side of the Church showing the Church Bell Tower. Our tourist guide/van driver insist on taking a photo of us behind the Church or on its side because according to him on that wall, you can see a famous Saint. Have you seen him?

Of course, our Bohol Vacation will not be complete if we will not set foot in the famous Chocolate Hills. When I was young, my parents used to tell me that Chocolate Hills is made up of chocolates and it is the bigger version of Hershey’s Kisses, so I used to tell my friends that when I will be back from my Bohol vacation I will bring a lot of Chocolates from Chocolate Hills only to find out that my parents were just kidding me. And now, it is my turn to fool my son and let him believe that Chocolate Hills is totally made up of Chocolates! hahaha
After our Chocolate Hills trip, we also drop by at the famous Bohol Hanging Bridge. It is not a long one but it is scary just the same. This is hanging bridge made of bamboo tree and it is the only way for the people who live on the other side of the creek to visit the City. See a man carrying a bag of cement? Yes, there are no other way to the place so they have to carry the bags of cement that they needed to build their homes on the other side. Trucks and even small cars cannot enter the place.
And these last photos below were taken in Sagbayan Peak, another tourist destination which tourists should not miss! The place is near some Chocolate Hills and they have a lot of famous people and animals made of cement where kids and adults can pose and let their photos be taken. My son and me poses with Marilyn Monroe here and what made this photo tick was that my son, 4 years old back then, touched Marilyn Monroe’s breast without me knowing. I just discovered it when I copy-pasted our photos from the camera to my laptop.
And, you can’t leave Bohol without posing with the famous Tarsier, the smallest monkey that can only be found in the Philippines! You are not allowed to hold it because it is an endangered species, but you can kiss it! (just kidding), I actually didn’t kiss it, it is just a pose! I am encouraging everyone to visit Bohol and other tourist destinations in the Philippines! We don’t have to go that far to enjoy our Summer Vacation and we don’t have to spend a lot to have a Happy Vacation! We also can help our country’s economy if we spend our money here in the Philippines by visiting our tourists spots! Let us not be aliens to our own country! Summer is MORE FUN in the PHILIPPINES!

The Wedding Planner (Ultimate)

I am a sucker for WEDDINGS and yes I have said it before, and I will say it again! I love weddings and though I didn’t have my wedding just yet, I love to help my friends prepare for their weddings. I am not your wedding planner next door or your perfect wedding coordinator yet because I am not good at it, I sometimes miss out some things for the weddings so I really need to write or jot down everything to have that perfect wedding for my friend.

But I don’t have to worry no more because I have seen this very helpful Wedding Planner infographics and yes this is a GREAT HELP to everyone who are preparing for their weddings.

Wedding planners and wedding coordinators alike may have seen this that is why it is so easy for them to prepare or coordinate for their client’s/customer’s weddings without missing out a little detail.

I can’t wait for my own wedding and use this guide but as of now, I will have to share it to my readers and friends for a smooth sailing wedding preparation!

Summer Bride!

Every girl has that “Perfect Wedding” thoughts in her mind and I am just one of them. When I was younger, I thought being a “June Bride” is the best that I can get and yet I realized that the month of “June” is common for weddings because a lot of women wanted to be called “June Brides” so now I am thinking of getting married on a summer month for a change.
But of course the perfect wedding will not be perfect without your wedding gown or wedding dress and there thanks Lord that there are a lot of online websites who have great ideas for wedding gowns that the bride could choose from. One of these is bridal shops in Anderson SC which answers all the needs of all bride-to-be’s! They do not only offer bridal wedding gowns but also the dresses for the bridesmaids and the bride’s mothers and all of the entourage as a whole! This is a one stop shop that every bride-to-be needs, having not to look for another store makes your wedding more stress-free and worry-free.
I am not getting married yet, because nobody proposed to me yet, but I know I will in the future so I am keeping this shop bookmarked in here!

White Christmas

I’m dreaming of a White Christmas. Yes, I have always been dreaming of spending a my Christmas in a place where snow is abundant. I want to build my own Snow Man and throw snow balls to my friends and family. But then again, I live in a tropical country which only has two seasons – Rainy and Dry seasons.

If only I live in Alaska or in Antarctica where I have to face snow everyday, I might as well wish to live in another place I guess. And if ever I can spend a time in a place where I can ski and go snowboarding, I have to wish Santa for a snow board jackets from because the weather might freeze my fragile and boney body.

But I heard in the news that there is a place somewhere in Luzon which people can feel like they are in Alaska, maybe I will just visit it some other time.

Charity Events and Churches

Some time ago in our town, my friends and I decided to organize a charity event where the proceeds will be used to buy new musical instruments for our church. You see, our church is still using old musical instruments, which sometimes, doesn’t work that well anymore or not even work at all.

With all the success that our event had, our church got new amazing set of instruments, and there’s even one who donated a digital pitch tuner. It was such a great feeling how you will be blessed with the music it created while singing praises.
