blog overhaul

Once again, I'm trying to change my blog template. I've been trying since time imemorial to change this template. This time, I'm successful. Partly. Because, successful as I was in incorporating the new template, I lost my tagboard, the payperpost logo and my multiply badge. Tsk, tsk, tsk. I will now try to figure out how to edit the html code to be able to insert the code for those 3 items that I lost. Whew! Kapagod ha! =)

feeling nostalgic

I so miss these guys! I chanced upon an old blog by a long lost friend (papang! nasan ka na ba? huling kita natin 2 months ago, di pa tyo nakapagkwentuhan!). When I read again the story of the group that made me look forward to weekends and the same group that made me appreciate going on trips with no planning, I suddenly slipped to nostalgic mode. We always had fun. We always go on out of town trips with no hotel/resort reservations or even a map. Just our instincts and the company of each other.

I'm still friends with them although I don't get to see them that much. Mga once every quarter na lang. Huhu. I miss them. Things have indeed changed. For all us. Payat pa kami noon! Haha. But I'm still glad that I have beautiful memories to look back to. Sana lang maulit ang mga ganitong pangyayari. =)

Hey, hey, hey! It's been almost 2 weeks since my last entry. I had to remove the dust and the spiderwebs that has been forming in my blog. Hehe.. Nwy, I still can't get the big news out. Maybe next time. I've already announced "the news" to most of my close friends and colleagues. I'll make my big announcement probably next week. Hopefully. ;P

So many things are happening. My world seemed to make a 180 degree turn. If my life was a roller coaster before, it's now more like I'm in the middle of a hurricane (exag!).

But I'm not really complaining. God has given me blessings more than I can imagine. I'm happy and contented with the way things are going. It's not picture perfect but I now know how to appreciate the things that come my way.

Before I forget, thanks to all those who remembered my birthday! I luv y'all! Mwah! Mwah! Even if my birthday was not as pleasant as my previous birthdays (don't really want to dwell on the details), I'm still blessed with a lot of things. And this is probably my most significant birthday. As said by one of my friends, He has given me the best gift. =)

On a sad note, I would like to extend my condolences to families and loved ones of those noble men who fought in Mindanao and who sacrificed their lives for our country. One of the casualties in the recent consecutive encounters in Mindanao is J's mistah. I actually accompanied J to the arrival honors of Lt. Charlie Camelon in Villamor Airbase last Aug 12. Charlie is actually the first casualty of the Maragtas class. (you can read his story here) I didn't know Hotdog (as his fondly called in PMA) personally. But when I saw his mom, my heart wept. Even more when I saw J and some of his mistah discreetly wiping their tears. It was indeed a sad moment. Something that I'm hoping and praying I won't witness again. J and I are just praying for Lt. Camelon's soul and the 4 junior officers who were J's upper class men (their story here). May they all rest in peace.

this will be quick

I'm back from hiatus. Unfortunately, I can't make this long. I have so many kwentos! I will be back with some big news. =)

I want to write happy thoughts but I'm feeling otherwise. But I don't want another entry that's pertaining to sadness. This blog had it's more than enough share of my emo moments. I just want to write something inspiring. Maybe something that may boost my low energy today.

One of my officemates told me before that to be able to achieve something, you have to conceive it! Not conceive a baby of course! You have to conceive in your mind that you're gonna reach your goal. That you will get that dream job you've always wanted. That you'll be with someone who will love you for the rest of your life. That you will be able to buy that house you've long wanted. That you'll get that car you've seen when you pass by EDSA.

I remember the book I read before, "The Alchemist". One of it's famous lines goes "If you really want something, the universe conspires for you to get it". Yes. If you really conceive, circumstances will actually cooperate with you for you to be able to achieve that goal.

I have to learn to conceive... to achieve! Achieve whatever my dreams are. That I'm capable of great things. Things that will actually bring impact to others.

Maybe I'm conceiving too much negative thoughts that I'm actually attracting negative things. Maybe I'll start tomorrow. Because today, I don't have the slightest willpower to perk myself up. Tomorrow, I'll start anew.


Travelling has always been my passion. Learning a thing or two about a place I've never been to is one of my natural highs. Being able to explore a new place with great company is the ultimate adventure! Being the traveller that I am, I always make sure to go to at least one new place every year. Last year, I started to travel outside of Luzon and actually went to Cebu and Bohol! This year, I've been to the glorious beach of Boracay and come September, I'll be exploring the beautiful island of Palawan. We don't have a place to stay there yet and I'm actually planning on booking in Hotel Reservations for our lodging. This is a traveller-friendly website which helps us travellers have hassle-free adventures. They not only have a list of hotels where you can stay but they can also help you in booking for your flight and rent cars to use on your destination.

Sometimes, when you're in a new place. It's hard to plan for the activities and places to visit. We often do research in the internet on a certain place just so we know what to do when we get to our destination. Good thing is, Hotel Reservations also gives great tips on activities on how you can maximize your vacation.
