My 2014 Vision Board Report

November 29, 2014 Tsina 0 Comments

It's a month before the year ends, let's check my vision board, shall we? I created this vision board last January, and I must say that I did a pretty good job this year. :P

I was able visit few places this year, and see lots of wonderful things. I went to Malaysia in January, and capture the grandiose of the Petronas Towers. I suggest you visit the SkyBar at the L33 of the Traders Hotel for the amazing view of the towers. Look at this!
I had my birthday trip in Hong Kong, and met the favorite couple in town. Plus Tinker Bell!! I had a pretty good time on my Indochina trip, visited Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. Awesome time. Wait for my stories, alright? :P

My old and dependable laptop retired, and I bought an Air. I've been wanting an Air in ages. It's light, I could pack it on my favorite tote. Hihi. Of course, I bought the Air as a reward for my promotion and graduation. Sweet. 

I have not had time to get lessons on surfing, or driving, or swimming. But I cook now, just the easy ones though. I still box with my friends too. Yay! I still don't have a constant travel buddy, but I went on my trips this year with my friends. Not bad, right?

I sponsored another kid on World Vision, the first one graduated last April. They gave me another girl to sponsor, and then I signed up for another one last month. Just the best way I know I could help. You too can help, sign up on this link. Payment instructions to automatically debit it on your BPI account is on this link.

This looks like a pretty awesome year, and I still have a month to go! I still have to pass the Test Manager certification exam, which I am too lazy to review for. Pray for me, okay? But good stuff this year. #happykid

It is a constant struggle. Unlearning a habit, that is. You force yourself on this; only to feel the reluctance building inside of you, waiting to explode. You pretend that it is alright, and this is the next best thing to do. After all, it's been two long years. Even the universe does not believe on chances; and you lose hope. Lying becomes a coping mechanism.

Road Trip

November 16, 2014 Tsina 0 Comments

One Saturday, I went to a road trip with my Triage friends, Regina and Erlie. Erlie and I went to Laguna, and met up with Reg. When I was a kid, my family used to visit Tagaytay for weekend trips. But that was eons ago, and so we set to explore Tagaytay a bit. 
my road trip buddies
We went to the Pink Sisters for our first stop, and said our prayers. Pink Sisters has an area where you could write down your prayer request, and so I went ahead and wrote them down on a piece of paper. Prayers are powerful.

We headed for some bulalo loving, Reg told us to eat at Bulalo Point for our lunch, not in Leslie, the more famous one. So, we ordered the killer lunch, and was serenaded at this place. I died a little. :P

We decided to explore Caleruega in Nasugbu, Batangas, instead of going to Sonya's Garden and the Sky Ranch. I wanted to see the church. When we got there, we instantly saw the admin building. 
The place is gorgeous. We could not stop ourselves from taking photos. Can I have a garden like this one? :P
From the top, the view is amazing too.

all green
We walked further ahead, and finally found the one eherm the church! I would like to get married on this church. In a distant future, okay? :P Hahahahahahaha!!! Seriously, this thought was running on my mind when we saw the church. I love it, the church, the ambiance, just about everything in this place. 
Caleruega
We explored the place a bit more, and stumbled on this man-made pond. Everything looks wonderful here.

I saw the very thing that sealed the deal. A hanging bridge. So my love affair with the hanging bridges continues, happy kid indeed. :P
the talikod-genic :P
It was a bit of a trek but we reached the tent chapel fine, panting but happy that we did.

wondering what she's praying for, hmmm
We said our prayers, and decided to go back to Regina, who was waiting by the bridge.
gorg!!
We rested a bit, and then decided to leave, and went to Bag of Beans in Tagaytay. We heard good reviews of the place, and went to try the pancakes and the coffee. But of course, we could not, and should not, leave Tagaytay without the photos of Taal. Reg brought us at Leslie's and we went on the view deck. Taal is absolutely breathtaking. I promise, I will trek you someday!!
Taal
We went to Nuvali, and checked the outlet stores too. But we only went for an hour or so, since it was a bit late and we would still go back in Manila. But we totally enjoyed this road trip, and planned to return and visit the other spots soon, and food trip of course!

She said, I miss you. But that sounded hollow amidst the noise of his nonchalance. It'd be two years of chance encounters; two long years.

Hong Kong-Macau Travel Expenses

November 02, 2014 Tsina 0 Comments

Celebrating my birthday in Hong Kong has been so much fun. Being able to travel is a blessing. Please feel free to browse on my adventures. I totally enjoyed this trip.

The birthday trip started at the Peak, we had the chance to see the stunning view of the city.

The Avenue of Stars is very near our hostel. This is the Hong Kong version of the Hollywood's Walk of Fame. The same spot provides the panoramic view of the city.

We had a day tour in Macau, and did casino hopping. But the most interesting would be the historic centre of Macau, which is a part of the UNESCO World Heritage List.

My Potterhead side has been amazed on the Venetian Macao. Goosebumps, really. 

One of my favourite spots in Macau is the Fisherman's Wharf, if only for the Roman amphitheatre. 

The Macau tower is on the list; capture the stunning skyline of Macau.

The crystal cabin in Ngong Ping still gives me the chills. 

Celebrated my birthday at Ocean Park, and enjoyed watching dolphins and sea lions starred on their own shows.

Who wouldn't be happy in Disneyland? Shared some moments with the favourite couple in town, Pooh and the gang. The kid couldn't be happier seeing Tinker Bell too. :P

So now, let me share my travel expenses for this Hong Kong-Macau birthday trip. Without food, bus fares and shopping, I spent PhP 14,956.12. Not bad, ayt?
1 HKD = 5.8 PhP
