10 Epic Puerto Galera Moments

My Puerto Galera getaway happened a month ago when the bestfriend impulsively asked if I want to go to the beach. My feet were itching to travel so without a second thought, I agreed. And the next thing we knew was, we were on a rush to catch a bus going to Batangas Port.

Start Your Day with Figaro's Newest Breakfast Sliders and Rice Meal

Robert Heinlein said, "One should not attend even the end of the world without a good breakfast". Who doesn't agree to this? It may sound exaggerated but even I don't like the idea of not having breakfast even at the busiest days of my life. Whether in a rush or in an easy breezy phase, one should (or should I say must) attend breakfast.

Good thing Figaro understands this and designed their newest Breakfast Sliders and Rice Meals to start up your day. For people on the go,Breakfast Sliders can be a good option. Rice Meals however are perfect for those who can't let a day without eating rice. Lucky, I had the chance to try both.

Indeed a fun way to celebrate birthday was to attend the Grand Press Presentation of Miss Teen Earth and Little Miss Earth Philippines 2014 held at Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati last May 21, 2014.

The event was attended by the 40 candidates together with their parents, presentors and partners, and people from the press. Each of the 40 earth champions charmed the audience with their ramp/introductions on their own style. 

Candidates also took an oath to their roles and responsibilities to the environment, led by Vas Bismark, founder and president of Captured Dream Entertainment.

To close the event, press people were given the chance to throw their question about the pageant.

Bucket List

I can’t believe I’m turning 26 already. With no concrete plans in mind, no money in hand, nowhere to go, no boyfriend since birth. Ugh! Sometimes, it’s frustrating to think that other people at your age or even younger has better accomplishments than you. But hey, what’s the point of thinking too much and comparing? We all have our own struggles  and adventures on a different plane. It’s only up to us to see and learn from them, and in the future turn these problems into a story worth reading.

As I’ve told you, I’m nearing 26. In 2 days to be exact. I may be a late bloomer at many things but as they say, it’s better late than never. So here I am, accepting life’s challenges to go get all my dreams to where it belongs. Winking smile

Now let’s start writing (and diving into the unknown).

Quick Swim and Stroll at Club Manila East

I guessed I’m really blessed with friends who share to me their blessings generously.

Just like when Monica (a blogger friend) invited me to join her party at Club Manila East in Taytay Rizal last Wednesday. Too bad, I had a burial to attend after so all I had was a quick swim and stroll at the resort.

After we placed in the 6 major beauty pageants last year, from Megan Young who became the first filipina to win the Miss International title to Ariella Arida who bagged the 3rd runner up in the Miss Universe,  there is no doubt, Philippines is home of beauty queens.

Last May 26, I attended a seminar facilitated by Jonas Gaffud, beauty queen maker, for the Miss Teen Earth and Little Miss Earth Philippines.
